"A brief film designed as a trailer for home use rarely possesses the quality of general audience appeal. Grace Lindner may be justly proud of having achieved this elusive element in Bless This House. The film is a hymn of love, an ode in praise of home, the family, mutual understanding and other ingredients of the good life. That the theme is an emotional one is admitted. That it might have become painfully saccharine is granted. That it did not is due to the sensitive and restrained manner in which the filmer has presented her familiar scenes. Fred Waring's recording of the title song furnished the theme and is used as an integral part of the film." Movie Makers, Dec. 1950, 466.
"Werner Henze has shown in Bohemian Baloney that artists can make fun of themselves and their profession. An artist and his wife had planned to have a quiet evening at the movies when a telephone call warns of a visit by a wealthy prospective buyer of pictures and her meek husband. How the young couple suddenly transform their own characters and their tasteful and immaculate living room into a scene of "arty" surroundings is gaily depicted with just the right amount of farce. The compositions and lighting are excellent and there are gay, unexpected twists throughout, particularly when a self portrait of the artist comes to life." Movie Makers, Dec. 1944, 495.

"This fascinating film from the early 1930s is all the more remarkable because it was made by a woman filmmaker, Enid Briggs. First we meet the Mullett family in Hythe before seeing early footage of the Romney. Hythe and Dymchurch Railway. Then we see family and friends on the pier at Deal, on a steamer to Margate and at play on the sands at Joss Bay. This is followed by horse-riding scenes around Broadstairs, on quiet streets still unaffected by cars. We also get a glimpse of a coastal tram" (BFI Player online).
