--- "This film is said to have an increased love interest. It will at least have our interest since Louise Brooks is the heroine. We gather from the pictures we have seen of the production that Miss Brooks is some sort of circus performer, as she is shown succumbing to the temptation of abbreviated skirts. That is Miss Brooks's old weakness. But then it takes two to make such a costume shocking, one to wear it and one to look at it. The picture also includes Mr. Beery and Mr. Hatton in a number of goofy poses. Both seem to be in love with Miss Brooks. We hope Mr. Beery gets her, because Mr. Beery has, to our mind, the most fascinating kiss in the movies. He kisses as though all his previous life had been spent playing the saxaphone." - article in Kansas City, Missouri newspaper
