Critic Reviews for Mandalay

All Critics (2)

Kay Francis goes wrong in the Orient and Warner Bros, went wrong on this picture.

Gauzy curtains and other bits of decor add eye-pleasing depth and complexity to Curtiz's compositions while also suggesting the layers of society and morality that Kay Francis must negotiate to recover her pride.

Heavy breathing melodramatics that Kay and her amazing wardrobe make worthwhile.
