Bill White
Fanfare, September 2012

The music has been newly arranged by Bert Dreyer and the third act is now set in Colorado, complete with rustic cabin, saloon with feisty female barkeep, and dancing Indians, all very reminiscent of Puccini’s La Fanciulla del West. There is a charming chorus of dancing typists complete with clacking typewriters in the opening scene…

All of the singers perform well…Perhaps the best-sung role is the Alice of Gabriele Jacoby…The dancing is quite slick and enjoyable…The music is tuneful, whether by Fall or not; sets are numerous and nicely crafted; and the filming is first-rate. This is a charming if rather frivolous piece of fluff and a quite entertaining way to spend a bit of time. Recommended. © 2012 Fanfare Read complete review

Anne Shelley
Music Media Monthly, June 2012

…this romantic comedy is light and entertaining, with plenty of sexual references and gender profiling to fit its day. The audio was obviously recorded separately and synched later with the footage, but this fact is more an asset than a distraction. The performance is in German, and subtitles are available in English, German, and French. © 2012 Music Media Monthly Read complete review
