Critical reception

The New York Times wrote, "the cry this morning should be "The Redcoats are coming!" Britain's long-heralded invasion of the American film market has begun with the offerings at the Roxy of Chu Chin Chow, a tuneful, spectacular and robust adaptation of the Oscar Asche comic operetta." [4]
