Critical reception

TV Guide wrote, "nicely done suspense tale of international intrigue sparked with generous doses of comedy from the witty Harker" ;[4] and Sky Movies noted, "Comedy-thrillers with droop-lipped cockney character star Gordon Harker were pure gold at the box-office in Britain of the late Thirties," and went on to call the film "a robust romp." [5]
