    The New York Times wrote, "Every now and then, thank heaven, there comes to Broadway a modest and unsung little film that arouses no anticipations at all and then quietly and firmly captivates you. "Jeannie," now at the Little Carnegie, is just such a film, and this corner, at least, accepts it with pleasure as that theatre's first offering of the season...For "Jeannie"...is as enchanting a bit of rue and nonsense as we've succumbed to in many a month..."Jeannie" is pure comedy of character. And what refreshing comedy it is!...Director Harold French...has staged the story with affection and understanding, "Jeannie" is not super-duper entertainment to knock your eye out, but it does have the gleam of real gold. As Jeannie likes to say: "My, how nice!" and Leonard Maltin similarly approved of an "Enjoyable comedy-romance," and rated the film three out of four stars.
