Critic Reviews for The Model and the Marriage Broker

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Thelma Ritter, in her first really starring role, is almost up to her previously high standards as a dry humorist. Jeanne Crain and Scott Brady provide romantic interest.

A breezy romcom that has some charm but falls flat when it tries to also be perceptive.

Audience Reviews for The Model and the Marriage Broker


If you've got Thelma Ritter in the cast you really don't need much more. This is a cute movie but without Thelma in one of the leads it would be nothing worth seeking out.
