Critic Reviews of "Ball Of Fire"Village VoiceDecember 22, 2015
Ball of Fire came out five days before Pearl Harbor. You can imagine Americans listening to its flood of slang and knowing exactly what they were fighting for.TIME MagazineFebruary 04, 2009
Actor Cooper plays his Mr. Deeds role with the authority of long familiarity, and Miss Stanwyck (once Ruby Stevens, of Brooklyn) is equally at home in hers.VarietyAugust 14, 2007
Casting is meticulously perfect to make every character a caricature of itself.Chicago ReaderAugust 14, 2007
A delight.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Pure joy.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Mr. Cooper may be a little loose-tooth in spots, but he gives a homespun performance such as only he can give. Miss Stanwyck is plenty yum-yum (meaning scorchy) in her worldly temptress role.Antagony & EcstasyMarch 20, 2015
Great, deep, humane, well-built comedy. But throw in Barbara Stanwyck's unbelievable act of character creation, and that's when Ball of Fire becomes its best self.Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)February 18, 2011
'I've gone goofy, completely goofy,' Cooper says, as the chaos of slang overwhelms his orderly vocabulary: 'Bim-buggy, slap-happy.' Watching 'Ball of Fire,' you feel similarly liberated.Classic Film and TelevisionJuly 07, 2010
One of the best screwball comedies.EmanuelLevy.ComJune 24, 2007
As the timid professor and burlesque stripper, Cooper and Stanwyck are at the top of their form in Hawks' delectable screwball comedy, based on a witty script from Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett.Slant MagazineMay 24, 2007
After the rush of His Girl Friday, Ball of Fire is a more sedate ride, full of such marvelous passages as the conga line Stanwyck's delectable Sugarpuss teaches the professors.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsJanuary 31, 2006
Does a fine job subverting the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs children's story.
