Critical reception

Perth's The West Australian wrote in November 1932, "the most important production for some time from the British International studios at Elstree, was screened to the trade in London on September 17 last and was enthusiastically received by exhibitors and the trade Press. 'The Maid of the Mountains' is, of course, the screen version of one of the most popular musical comedies the stage has known. It was directed by Lupino Lane and photographed by Claude Finese Greene, one of England's leading cameramen. Two Australian girls, Nancy Brown and Betty Stockfield, play important roles of Teresa and Angela, and Miss Brown's singing of the popular melodies is said to be most effective...The 'Daily Film Renter' says that 'The Maid of the Mountains' is a feast of melody and humour, wholesome and entertaining throughout its length. The 'Cinema' says it has sparkling comedy,charming romance, striking spectacle and lilting music effectively put over, the camera work and recording being first class. There will be large audiences for this film when it is shown in Perth next year";[3] whereas more recently, TV Guide concluded that "The production, unfortunately, is flat and lifeless, without any of the jauntiness needed for it to work."[4]
