AllMusic Review by

Pure, unadulterated camp spotlighting film noir fixture Lizabeth Scott, this Henri René-arranged date vaults the sex kitten vocal concept to new heights of sublime absurdity. Released three years after tabloid rag Confidential outed the actress, Lizabeth does everything in its power to combat the career-killing rumors, exploiting Scott's smoky sensuality and husky vocals for maximum mileage across a series of boy-crazy songs like "Men," "He Is a Man," and "It's So Nice to Have a Man Around the House." Scott is an intriguing singer with style and sophistication in spades, but the over the top carnality is simply too much to take in large doses. As a template for successive generations of drag-queen culture, however, it's right up there with Judy at Carnegie Hall.
