Critics of the time, especially those of Variety, January 14, 1920, mentioned that this particular movie, which opened at the Rialto, was so packed that at 10:00 PM the movie house owner had to turn people away after an entire day when people had been lined up around the block just to try to get in.
Critics felt that the director, George D. Baker, had done a wonderful job with the adaptation, but did mention that Marion Davies would have done better if the script had actually been written to fit her as opposed to her attempt to act the part in a starring role.
