Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Made at the height of the Depression, John Stahl's Oscar-nominated melodrama prided itself for its liberal views, but even then the racial angle and Louise Beavers' acting were controversial."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"Though it doesn't fully explore the racial issues it raises as fully as it could have, for its time it was daring and courageous."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Unashamedly a soap opera, but it's not only an excellent example of that too easily dismissed form -- it's a soap opera with an agenda."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
