Obviously eschewed by big city sponsors because of its age, forgotten players, and severely pre-code theme, these very qualities, along with an interesting title, seemed to endear it to less predominant markets, and today's cable TV viewers still welcome it on Turner Classic Movies.

Cecil's brother, William DeMille only directed one film after this one. After seeing Passion Flower, it's a wonder they let him do that one. Extremely old fashioned material made with no verve. With the exception of some lame Zasu Pitts comedy, all the performances are wooden and trite, even the usually interesting Bickford and Francis. The only moment of interest is a technical where Bickford and Francis have a discussion on a very windy hillside and the sound appears to be recorded on site. It would difficult with modern microphones, much less what they had in 1930. But it's not enough to make anyone want to sit through this rubbish.
