Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It seems to run quite long for as simple of a story it is. Most of the plot is revealed in dialogue, and the suspense isn't as strong as it could be."

"Inert and overwrought crime/melodrama that never gets over being stagy despite the teaming of Humphrey Bogart and Barbara Stanwyck."

"Bogart's final seconds onscreen are played for comedy; it's as if the movie itself is winking at us, to apologize for its Gothic-suspense absurdity, but also to get us to admit we enjoyed our time together."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"... a handsomely mounted and nicely acted piece, especially when the two Hollywood greats share the screen."
