"Green for Danger is just another proof that the British, too, can make mediocre pictures."
‑ , TIME Magazine

‑ Thomas M. Pryor, New York Times

‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"This is the kind of brisk, bright and thoroughly engaging comedy thriller that the British film industry has, sadly, forgotten how to make."
‑ David Parkinson, Radio Times
"Absolutely splendid murder mystery with a great Alastair Sim performance."

"A hugely likeable gem of postwar British film."
