--- "He was handicapped by no less a person than Louise Brooks, who plays the Canary. You are conscious that the words spoken do not actually emanate from the mouth of Miss Brooks and you feel that as much of her part as possible has been cut. She is unbelievably bad in a role that should have been well suited to her. Only long shots are permitted of her and even these are far from convincing when she speaks." - Los Angeles, California newspaper

Orndorff, Marguerite. "The Canary Murder Case." Educational Screen, March 1929. (United States) *
--- "The most popular of the popular Van Dine mysteries is on the screen at last with William Powell as the psychologist -philosopher-gentlemandetective, and a cast including Louise Brooks, Jean Arthur, Gustav von Seyffertitz, John Louis Bartels, Lawrence Grant, Charles Lane, James Hall, and Ned Sparks. Owing to the nature of the story and the fact that the film is all talkie, there is practically no action. The two high spots are the poker game and the phonograph scene which latter, I remember thinking when I read the story, was simply made to order for the talkies. Changes in the story have made the murderer into one of nature's noblemen who was merely ridding the world of a menace. They kill him off via the train-auto accident route, thereby, to my mind, rendering Vance's omniscience null and void. Mr. Powell is the perfect Philo Vance. Here is an actor who knows how! Watch his expressive hands, particularly where he enacts the scene of the murder for the district attorney." - capsule review in trade journal

--- "It is on the whole the best talking-mystery production that has been seen, which does not imply that it is without failings. It is quite obvious that Louise Brooks, who impersonates Margaret Odell, alias the Canary, does not speak her lines. Why the producers should have permitted them to be uttered as they are is a mystery far deeper than the story of this picture." - New York City newspaper

On the other hand, there is evidence that good tiiikfRs are proving very popular with the public. At the Plaza, for instance, where The Canary Murder Case, a good mystery talkie, is now being shown, the boxoffice receipts last week exceeded the record figures of Beau Geste, one of tho greatest silent films.ever made." - write-up in London newspaper

D'un bond, dans la salle en plen air d'Afrique où nous vîmes naguère ce Canary murder case, tout un rang d'adolescents arabes se leva, d'instinct, pour pouvoir voir plus bas, confondant l'écran avec une fenêtre.
