    Toronto's The Globe noted that the film "wove many new and modern angles into a strange gripping story." It ran in that city from 29 July to 4 August 1932 at Loew's, and ran at other theatres including the Capitol, Belsize, and Lyndhurst from August to January of the next year.

    The Spokesman-Review noted that Twelvetrees was given "a role that fits her well" after "ups and downs", and "the result is a picture of good entertainment value. Young is also a capable actor and gives Miss Twelvetrees adequate support."
