Original review from  Variety  (Dec. 4, 1929):

A money picture, easily, for it’s worth 75 cents for anyone to see Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks do this kind of stuff in a vastly extravagant burlesque of Bill Shakespeare’s best laugh. The two stars often turn that into a howl. … As this was built for laughs only and gets them, nothing else matters. For laughs get money, and besides the laughs you have Mary Pickford, with Douglas Fairbanks – and Shakespeare at last!
