The West Australian 27 June 1933 p.8
[I]t possesses in generous measure the elements of popularity, and its public performances will undoubtedly draw big houses and be accompanied by sustained mirth. […] The incident is supported by a good deal of skilful art-direction and photography, and taken all round, it is, all of it very much in the Walls-Lynn screen tradition, not worrying unduly about the ordinary rules of film production and scenario writing. As entertainment, however, it succeeds, and its welcome should be all the greater in that it is quite a year since any previous production of theirs came to one of our central city theatres. – from an uncredited review
