  • Reception

    Frank Nugent of The New York Times said, "Paramount must have been carried away when it finally succeeded in bringing Joe E. Brown and Martha Raye (and their mouths) together in a comedy. Only it wasn't carried far enough away. $1,000 a Touchdown, played at the Criterion yesterday, is a painfully witless football farce of almost fantastic unoriginality. There is even a scene in which Eric Blore turns to Mr. Brown and says, "Now I leave you to Morpheus." (That wasn't a take-em, folks: it was Joe Miller clutching Mr. Brown's shoulder). It ends with Joe E. scoring the last-second touchdown by being thrown over the goal posts. They threw the wrong man: Delmer Daves, who wrote it, would be our choice—and we'd insist on a field goal."
