"In many ways a disappointing adaptation which failed to transmit to the screen the subtleties of the original. Much admired by the aesthetes, it caused a sensation because of its subject of a pernicious alcoholic, but it was not a step forward for Brackett and Wilder."
(Paul Rotha & Richard Griffith, The Film Till Now, 1949)
