Cast[edit]

Reception[edit]

Writing for The Spectator, Graham Greene made light of the film's use of excerpts from La Bohème and described Moore's acting as "undistinguished", suggesting that the success of the film is due in large part to Carrillo's performance.[4]

It was the 10th most popular film at the British box office in 1935-36.[5]
