Castle was famous for promoting his films with gimmicks, and this one was no exception. He generated publicity by advertising for girls from 13 different countries to compete for parts as daughters of diplomats. As usual, he stretched the truth to suit his needs. Not all of the girls were from the countries they represented (for example Judy Pace was an American, not a Liberian). Also, there were 15 girls in all.

Bosley Crowther of The New York Times noted that "The young Mata Hari is vigorously played by pretty Kathy Dunn" and suggested that the film would be a good double bill with another Columbia release, Gidget Goes to Rome. Keith Phipps of The A.V. Club called it "a fun cold war relic".
