Time Out says

Ferenc Molnar's play Liliom had already been filmed by Fritz Lang (in France) and Frank Borzage (in Hollywood) when Rodgers and Hammerstein adapted it for their Broadway musical, and here Henry King is content to defer to his betters and simply stand back while the schmaltzy material is overwhelmed by Fox opulence. MacRae is the former fairground barker given celestial leave to visit his loved ones on earth for a day, and incidentally revealing the source of a million Kop anthems with 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.
