Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Though Garbo is sexy and hot in a less subtle way this time, and though the plot goes about as far as it can in situation warmth, the story presents nothing sensational."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Greta Garbo tries to wheedle secrets out of Ramon Navarro and Lewis Stone in her most ludicrous film."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"This is the role that the Swedish beauty Greta Garbo is best known for."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews

"Garbo is stunning."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A glamourous and romantic conception of the latter days of the life of the Dutch dancer and courtesan who was shot as a spy by the French in 1917."
‑ Mordaunt Hall, New York Times
"Not Garbo's greatest but it has a curious charm."
‑ David Parkinson, Empire Magazine
