"I'd Be Delighted To!, directed and photographed by S. Winston Childs, jr., ACL, is that kind of production often planned but seldom made — a film story told entirely in closeups. Presenting the simple incident of a dinner a deux in a gentleman's apartment, the picture runs through 400 feet of brilliantly chosen, strikingly filmed, significant closeups. It is adroit, amusing and sophisticated, and a splendid example of what, with skill and care, can be done in this distinctly advanced amateur filming method." Movie Makers, Dec. 1932, 562.
S. Winston Childs, jr. writes on the making of a film with an abundance of closeups in "The Closeup's The Thing" (Movie Makers, Feb. 1933, 65, 78).
An ad in Movie Makers (Feb. 1933, 91) for Bell & Howell's Filmo camera references I'd Be Delighted To! as an award-winning amateur film shot with a Filmo.
The film was available in the ACL's Club Film Library.
