    • Review by Lucille Ball from her autobiography, "Love, Lucy": I was exhausted, just completely depleted in every way. This made me unsure of myself and unstrung. I had enough technical skill to turn in a good performance regardless, and The dark Corner was hailed as "tough-fibered, exciting entertainment," with "superior performances." I can't say my performance was superior; I look utterly bemused in this movie, with a staring, numb, fogbank look, as if I were being driven into a dark corner.

      "[It] got poor reviews... Howard Barnes of the New York Herald-Tribune wrote, "Our sympathy to Miss Ball, who is fetching in Travis Banton's gowns in spite of the plot's ennui." Bosley Crowther said, "Miss Ball wears a wardrobe of costumes and acts as if she really had a script. The poor lady is sadly deluded, she is completely without support."... Although the scriptwriters were viewed to have failed me, the director and other players did not. Making Lover come Back was the best thing I could have done.
  62. Two Smart People (1946) -MGM

Lucille Ball plays the beauteous dame who falls for the guy she started out to fleece. She is painfully defeated by the script at every turn. But in addition to its pedestrian plot, Two Smart People suffers from a lack of competent direction.
