In his review for the first incarnation of Life, Robert E. Sherwood called the film "the world's worst movie". Sherwood described the film as "a grotesque hodgepodge about woman's rights through the ages (interminable ages they are, too) with a great deal of ham allegory and cheap religious drool, used to cloud the real motif — which is sex appeal."[3]
