  • As Dr Ling, Anna May Wong has little to do but act a mild role with dignity, plus some gentle humour. This she does, although the script makes her character a rather colourless personality.

  • Paramount should have spared us and its cast (Akim Tamiroff, Anna May Wong, Sidney Toler and J. Carrol Naish principally) the necessity of being bothered with such folderol.

  • It is just another gangster melodrama, lacking the excitement one expects in pictures of this type. It starts out pretty well, but as it develops it loses its fast pace.

  • Neat and quick, the film moves at a nice pace in its 56-minute run. Despite some bad editing early in the film, this is an interesting thriller with a great cast.

    March 17, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • [It's] about a woman surgeon and a racketeer with noble instincts, who suffers a change of soul after she has saved his life. It seems a pity that this reformation has to wait until the end of the film... an awful lot of tedium could have been prevented.
