Reception[edit] Bosley Crowther of The New York Times
The New York Times
said, "If you can imagine a combination of a Nineteen Thirties "college musical" and a second-rate silent slapstick shot completely "off the cuff," then you can picture in your mind's eye the Warners' Cinderella Jones, a little package of fluff and painful cut-ups which came to the Strand yesterday. And we trust that you can so imagine, for it would be very difficult indeed to convey a more accurate impression of this nonsensical and amateurish film."[2] References[edit]
