All Critics (15) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (3)

  • This deeply affecting tale of Stella Dallas-style maternal self-sacrifice transcends its sentimental shortcomings through the fluency of direction that was to become Mamoulian's trademark.

    April 7, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Though this is Mamoulian's earliest, it's possibly his freshest film.

    April 7, 2016 | Full Review…
  • In most cases, however, Mr. Mamoulian commits the unpardonable sin of being far too extravagant. He becomes tedious in his scenes of the convent and there is nothing but viciousness in his stage passages.

    April 7, 2016 | Full Review…
  • [It is] surprising to find Rouben Mamoulian, recently director of legitimate productions for Manhattan's Theatre Guild, experimenting so weakly with the cinema.

    April 7, 2016 | Full Review…
  • This is the real old burlesque, in its background, people and atmosphere. So was Beth Brown's book, and Garret Fort has adapted with sufficient fidelity to hold together the odd story that makes an odd picture.

    February 23, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Even more impressive was its (pre-Freaks) sympathetic portrayal of a shunned community in all its self-contained, lip-biting game-face pride.
