From a contemporary review, the Monthly Film Bulletin review noted that the print was cut by about 35 minutes and featured "indifferent dubbing" and a "very poor print quality".[1] The review found that with these issues the film was "incomprehensible", but the film was "an astonishing example of how completely such mutilation can change a film, which in this case was already of indifferent quality."[1]
