Critical reception

TV Guide wrote, "Weak story, poor dialog; everyone's just kiddin' around" ;[3] while Mystery File wrote, "it’s only in bits and pieces and occasional places that the plot rises above the purely pedestrian. If I were Leonard Maltin, the best I could give this movie would be 1½ stars out of five and I still think I’d be just a little bit generous if I did. Nonetheless, its historical significance is high, so I was glad to have had the opportunity to have seen it, and you may too."[4]
