Critical reception[edit]

In The New York Times, Bosley Crowther wrote, "Robert Montgomery's "Eye Witness," which came to the Little Carnegie on Saturday, is an amiable combination of British and American cinema crafts, run up for pleasant diversion if not exceptional note";[4] and more recently TV Guide rated the film two out of five stars, calling it a "Routine crime melodrama with another of the American heroes British audiences seem to like."[5]
