Time Out says

'12 years a whore, 5 times a wife (whereof once to her own brother), 8 years a transported felon...' But that's Defoe's Moll Flanders. This is a tidied-up version, morally and story-wise, a self-conscious counterpart to Tony Richardson's Tom Jones, the big hit of two years previous. It's not unamusing, rattling along at a fair lick, with no scene lasting longer than about a minute. Novak, ever a stranger to high spirits, makes a pallid heroine, but the supporting cast is compensatingly flavourful, especially Sanders ('Hah-hah! We're at it again!') and Cecil Parker, the latter more lecherous than he was ever allowed to be under J Arthur Rank's auspices.
