"A film designed to show the absurdity of talkies that recorded action in pictures with unnecessary explanations of the action recorded in sound. The film was shown for one night in a Boston theater but not appreciated by the audience. Harold Lloyd, directed by Sennet, might have brought it off." - J. S. Watson Jr.
"Watson’s avant-garde film is a unique example of dadaist aesthetics in early sound cinema. A minimalist and virtually expressionless acting style on a claustrophobic set characterizes the melodramatic love triangle. Watson considered the film a failure, though it appears extremely modern today, and suppressed its existence." - Jan-Christopher Horak
