    Allmovie found the film "isn't quite as good as the 1940 Hollywood adaptation"; wheres The New York Times thought it "superior in every way to the one made in Hollywood some years back. The quaint customs have an English-cut, at least"; while Variety applauded the acting of John Howard Davies, Robert Newton and especially "a standout performance by John Forrest as the sneering, bullying Flashman"; and Time Out approved of a "soldily carpentered third screen version of Thomas Hughes' famous Rugby story - atmospherically shot on location in the old school itself."
