Critical reception[edit] Sky Movies wrote, "If you can believe in Frankie Vaughan and Jeremy Spenser as Gibraltar fishermen, you'll enjoy this Anna Neagle-produced trifle about love and life, Latin-style. Fiery Jackie Lane eclipses model Jean Dawnay's screen debut";[2] while TV Guide called the film an "engaging romance";[3] and Allmovie wrote, "Wilfred Hyde-White offers the film's best performance as the debutante's dry-witted papa."
