Critic Reviews for Listen, Darling

All Critics (3)

Listen, Darling is one of those rare B-pictures that captures a singular charm and spontaneity which most class A productions miss completely.

You have to be awfully sympathetic with the teen ages to get much pleasure out of Listen, Darling.

Audience Reviews for Listen, Darling


Simple, silly nonsense put over by pros. Judy sings "Zing Went the Strings of my Heart" and several other tunes with youthful exuberance and heart.
