As real and immediate as a documentary, yet stylishly and attractively photographed. Some of the process work is obvious, but few members of a 1937 audience would have detected it.

(John Howard Reid, long after release)

The Kipling novel was reworked - sugared - by experienced hands.

(Pauline Kael, New Yorker, long after release)
