Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Enjoyable trash: Carol Reed's circus melodrama is one of his most commercially successful but artistically weakest film; there's more erotic tension between Burt Lancaster and Tony Curtis than between either man and love interest Gina Lillobrigida."

‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Tacky circus thriller and overwrought love triangle melodrama."
