Trivia & History

Critical reaction to Ace of Clubs was decidely mixed.  The Times thought that Coward had striven too hard for popular success with his score: "In spite of the mixed reception it is possible that Ace of Clubs, for all its crudity and its slightly old-fashioned air, will give a great many people what they consider lively entertainment. But Mr Coward’s usual public will feel that he has temporarily deserted them." The Manchester Guardian was more favourable, calling the show "essentially a good-tempered frolic... unlikely to knock spots off Oklahoma! but it is in essence not only more genial, but more intelligent." It praised Coward’s protégé Graham Payn, who "dances with consummate grace... singularly fresh and boyish", adding, whether innocently or not, "Benevolent Uncle Noel has found a first-class nephew."
