Motion Picture Herald, February 6, 1932:
“Broadway with the Criterion ready for the premiere of ‘Strictly Dishonorable'”
“Departing from problems and issues and resorting merely to typical aspects of contemporary American life, content to achieve lively entertainment, Universal translated the highly successful stage play, ‘Strictly Dishonorable,’ into a work of cinema that–unexpectedly, perhaps– won critical praise commonly elicited by only pretentious ‘supers.’
“Probably without any such intentions, this picture entered the group of Universal’s notable productions.”
