Critic Reviews for They Met in Bombay

All Critics (3)

The movie is delicious, and with such actors, there is no need to say that the public would be delighted. [Full review in Spanish]

A quintessential Gable star vehicle, this escapist fare is mildly entertaining due to the acting, with Rosalind Russell as the King's equal-rival.

August 13, 2012 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

It tickles the bones even though the plot is slight and the story line is farfetched and hardly believable.
