Critical reception[edit]

Writing in 1936, Variety described the film as a "bedroom comedy of a quality of which Hollywood would not be ashamed. With stellar values it would have been a pushover. Even in it's existing shape it is a highly titillating piece of merchandise, expertly produced and neatly directed, that will tickle the more sophisticated audience on both sides of the Atlantic". [3]
