"The Toronto Movie club has cast several of its members in a comedy involving the boss, his daughter, and two bond sales-men. The usual conflicts-the daughter's choice finds some difficulty with her father. And there are two gunmen looking for easy money. A different touch of the old story, well paced, with a fine cast who move about with comic realism" PSA Journal, Nov. 1958, 46.
"What happens when a pair of jewel thieves masquerading as house painters get into a lady's apartment to elude the police is entertainingly told in this club production by the 8mm. group of the Seattle Amateur Movie Club. John F. Herman, the director, keeps the action moving, while the players discharge their roles for the most part with good humor. J. W. Crock and George Hayden contribute ably as the cameramen. Although the cutting, as with so many amateur dramas, is not as swiftly paced as one might wish, Apartment C is an engaging example of cooperative filming." Movie Makers, Dec. 1951, 411.
"British cine amateur Donald S. James aided by Maureen Cottle has produced a tightly-knit comedy depicting three methods of capturing a burglar. In each episode, the same burglar enters the same home, but in each case, different methods are taken by the householders to effect his capture. The low key lighting is very effective and good editing has resulted in very professional results on the screen. Narration and sound effects on the recorded track round out the superior treatment of this better than average amateur effort." American Cinematographer, May. 1951, 192.
"Using black and white film, Carl D. Frazier has produced a tightly knit and well paced farce of a married couple and a burglar. Excellent lighting of wholly interior settings shows study of the monochrome medium and, properly exploited, how it can result in sparkling results. The acting is adequate for the simple plot, but it is the camera work and editing that make the film above average." Movie Makers, Dec. 1949, 472.
