  • U.S. cinemaddicts may find the photography in Chu Chin Chow inferior to most recent Hollywood musicomedies... but are likely to approve the decor, [music, and Anna May Wong,] the only performer in the cast whose name is familiar to them.

  • The producers of the film, having a more malleable medium to work with, had an opportunity to out-glitter the stage production, but they have not done so.

    March 13, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The picture is not as colorful as the legitimate stage version, but it provides entertainment of the type that is well worth while.

    February 23, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Filmed with verve and audacity and a lavishness completely untypical of the small Gainsborough Studios, the result is a gutsy melodramatic piece of popular cinema.

  • Britain's long-heralded invasion of the American film market has begun with the offerings at the Roxy of Chu Chin Chow, a tuneful, spectacular and robust adaptation of the Oscar Asche comic operetta.

    September 3, 2011 | Full Review…
  • This lavish musical from the British studios is a colorful, extravagant costume film that makes its bid for attention purely on an extravaganza platform, and makes the grade.
