Reviews in German: «Ein wunderbar unwahrscheinliches kleines Komödien-Drama. Auf halbem Weg kippt es von der genialen, überdrehten Komödie zum gedämpften Drama, von der jugendlich-übermütigen Geschichte zweier Seeleute, die sich gerne prügeln, zur präzisen Studie einer Dreiecksbeziehung.» (Donald C. Willis: The Films of Howard Hawks, Scarecrow Press 1975)
«Eine misogyne Komödie, die männliche Kameradschaft – mit homosexuellen Untertönen – zelebriert? Wohl kaum. Eher schon eine böse Satire über falsch verstandene Männlichkeit.» (Rolf Thissen: Howard Hawks, Heyne 1987)
Remarks and general Information in German: Remake 1931 unter dem Titel Goldie mit Jean Harlow in der Hauptrolle.
"Unter den unwiderstehlichen und unverwechselbaren Komödien, für die Howard Hawks berühmt ist, die früheste. Möglicherweise der Film, der das Genre der Buddy-Movies begründete, zugleich aber jener, der Louise Brooks definitiv zum Star machte." (www.filmpodium.ch
