A review in The Film Daily 1964 vol. 125 had this to say “Night Train to Paris is a neat little suspense film that will be a fine addition to any double bill. Its length probably automatically relegates it to second feature…”. Howard Thompson, in the New York Times for December 3, 1964, disparaged the film: “"Night Train to Paris — there's an intriguing title. But, believe us, this thumpingly mediocre little suspense melodrama that drifted into neighborhood theaters yesterday can go back to where it came from. There have been worse plots but few more familiar”… and “…starchy dialogue is neatly matched by Robert Douglas’s flat-footed direction”. “The most attractive thing about the whole picture is a nifty blonde named Dorinda Stevens. The woman can act, too, which is more than can be said for most of the others”.
