Heartbeat is more beguiling than it deserves. Full Review
Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Silver-screen megastar Ginger Rogers plays Arlette, a young down-on-her-luck ne'er-do-well who escapes from reform school to enroll in a pickpocket academy taught by Professor Aristide (Basil Rathbone, in a scene-stealing performance). Arlette graduates at the top of her class but is caught red-handed in her first real-world effort. Instead of turning the poor girl in, her intended victim demands that Arlette attend an embassy ball. There she is caught with her hands in the hip pocket of Pierre, a handsome diplomat played by heartthrob Jean-Pierre Aumont. Fortunately for Arlette, Pierre's first response is to fall head over heels for her and her miscreant behavior. Director Sam Wood had previously coached Rogers to an Oscar in KITTY FOYLE, and that powerful combination reconnects in HEARTBEAT to create a fluffy, good-natured comedy.
Guttersnipe Ginger Rogers graduates from Basil Rathbone's school for pickpockets only to get her hand stuck in heartthrob Jean-Pierre Aumont's hip pocket. They fall immediately in love. Sam Wood's film is a remake of the French farce BATTEMENT DE COEUR.
- The role was a bit of a stretch for Ginger Rogers. The character she plays is intended to be in her late teens, while the actress herself was 35.
