Time Out says

Alas, this is no Panavision and colour version of The Third Man, despite the teaming of Reed and ace cameraman Robert Krasker. Scripted by John Mortimer (from a novel by Shelley Smith), it's an extremely routine thriller about an insurance swindle, with Harvey as the ne'er-do-well, Remick as his soon disenchanted wife, and Bates as the man from the Pru who smells a rat while on holiday in travel brochure Spain. The scenery takes first place, and you almost expect the dire Anne Gregg to pop up to show Harvey how to buy an orange in the market.
