Time Out says

No masterpiece, but a fascinatingly brisk thriller about a journalist (Woods, living up to his name) and a young heiress (Lindsay) searching for the kidnappers of her wayward, irresponsible sister (Davis). The plot is complex enough to hold the attention, the performances by and large passable (Davis unfortunately disappears after about twenty minutes), though the injections of comedy with Hugh Herbert's inept photographer are excruciating. But Dieterle directs for all he's worth, moving the plot along at a furious pace and making excellent use of Tony Gaudio's chiaroscuro camerawork.
