Critical reception

Mordaunt Hall of The New York Times described the film as an "interesting production" that also had "marked simplicity" in terms of its story.[2] Hall also said that "but for some repetitions, a few accentuated actions and instances of forced comedy, [it] would be one of the really great productions."[3] The Ottawa Citizen said that, because of a new scripting technique employed by William Howard, "the film more closely approaches realism than anything ever before attempted in motion pictures."[4] Philip K. Scheuer of the Los Angeles Times called it a "distinguished film" that employed the suggestion of sound by showing "creaking rockers, ticking clocks, the click of poker chips".[5]
