There is an on-your-toes, give-your-best, you're-in-a-classic-now atmosphere about the acting which is fascinating.

Readers wondered how those cinemen would succeed in putting the whole story into a single picture. As revealed last week, the answer is extremely simple. Warner Brothers do not succeed in anything of the sort because they do not try.

Lavish but overlong.

Fredric March as Adverse is an ace choice, playing the role to the hilt.

We found it a bulky, rambling and indecisive photoplay which has not merely taken liberties with the letter of the original but with its spirit.

An early stab at the swashbuckler from Warner Brothers, which proved popular at the time but hasn't improved with age.

Though well-acted by Fredric March, Claude Rains and Sondergaard, LeRoy's lavish adventure is overlong and not particularly involving, despite a globetrotting plot (Cuba, Africa, Paris, and America) that spans decades.

Certainly doesn't hold up very well for modern viewers.

Lame, over ambitious attempt at a globetrotting swashbuckler.
