Writing for The Spectator in 1936, Graham Greene gave the film a mildly negative review, characterizing the film as "dull [and] a curiosity, a relic of the classical German film of silent days". Negatively comparing the film to Galeen's 1926 version of the story, Greene found that the story was less believable and the acting less memorable. In favor of the film, Greene noted "one can say at any rate that it is on the right side".
