Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Readers wondered how those cinemen would succeed in putting the whole story into a single picture. As revealed last week, the answer is extremely simple. Warner Brothers do not succeed in anything of the sort because they do not try."
‑ , TIME Magazine
"An early stab at the swashbuckler from Warner Brothers, which proved popular at the time but hasn't improved with age."
‑ , Time Out
"Certainly doesn't hold up very well for modern viewers."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"Fredric March as Adverse is an ace choice, playing the role to the hilt."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Lavish but overlong."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Lame, over ambitious attempt at a globetrotting swashbuckler."
‑ , Film4
"We found it a bulky, rambling and indecisive photoplay which has not merely taken liberties with the letter of the original but with its spirit."
‑ Frank S. Nugent, New York Times
"Though well-acted by Fredric March, Claude Rains and Sondergaard, LeRoy's lavish adventure is overlong and not particularly involving, despite a globetrotting plot (Cuba, Africa, Paris, and America) that spans decades."
