ReceptionEdit

Writing for The Spectator in 1936, Graham Greene gave the film a mildly good review, describing it as "silly but with some amiable qualities". Commenting that "there is very little to be said for this odd plot", and suggesting that "there is no discoverable theme", Greene nevertheless praised Saint-Exupéry's scenario writing and concluded that "it is chiefly worth seeing for [its] exciting and beautifully directed melodramatic climax".[2]
