Writing for The Spectator in 1936, Graham Greene gave the film a positive review, characterizing it as an "agreeably [...] slow, good-humoured murder-story". Praising Engel's acting as particularly vivid, Greene summarized the film, claiming: "melodramatic passions are given a pleasantly realistic setting by a very competent director and a first-class cameraman".[3]
