      Robert F. Sisk Variety The settings can't be given too much praise, for they are original and beautiful as well as inspiring at times. That same praise goes for the technical work and the direction, in fact, for everything about the film but its general effect. Sep 17, 2020 Full Review Mordaunt Hall New York Times This picture is one of great distinction... Mr. Cruze has shrewdly availed himself of the opportunities afforded by the camera. There are marvelous sets, bizarre costumes, glorious lighting effects, and a most deft handling of the dream scene. Sep 17, 2020 Full Review Robert E. Sherwood LIFE [James Cruze] and Walter Woods, his faithful collaborator, have caught the spirit of George Kaufman and Marc Connelly's play, and have sustained it beautifully. Oct 7, 2021 Full Review C.S. Sewell Moving Picture World Unlike anything ever presented on the screen is Beggar on Horseback... so much so that it is next to impossible to convey through the medium of words a comprehensive idea of this production. Sep 17, 2020 Full Review Agnes Smith Photoplay If you miss it, you'll be passing up one of the best shows of the year. Sep 17, 2020 Full Review Film Daily Staff The Film Daily There is a splendid production, some unusual sets, and with James Cruze handling the direction you are sure of a capable presentation of the subject, but it is the subject matter which fails and it will fail deplorably [at the box office].
