A wealth of Chinatown local color, Lon Chaney and one fascinating baby would make any photoplay worth seeing. Outside the Law has the additional attraction of Priscilla Dean.

A good idea, well worked out, an decidedly well acted by Priscilla Dean, Wheeler Oakman and the ferocious Lon Chaney. We recommend the picture to those who share our own dime novel tastes.

Those who like crook melodrama with scenes in Chinatown ave certainly going to like Outside the Law, for it is much bigger than anything of the kind we have seen.

...the elaborate, stylized sets used to represent San Francisco's Chinatown are a delight as is the palatial "Spencer home" where a key scene takes place.

It's lucky for the film that when Priscilla Dean isn't onscreen, Lon Chaney usually is, since those two are by and large the only humans that give it any kind of spice.

It doesn't quite have the personal touches that Browning's later films would have, but it's a strong entertainment nonetheless.

Inventive crime drama about jewel thieves, with romance, emotion, glamour and suspense.
