Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Rossen (Oscar winner for All the King's Men) may not have been the right director for such a juicy and colorful ensemble melodrama, which at the time was considered audacious and controversial due to its handling of interracial relationships."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Daring for its era, but creaky and unintentionally funny today."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
