Hell's Holiday was the latest in a long line of WWI documentaries released in the first four years of the talkie era. By 1933, the newsreel clips shown herein had been seen in so many previous compilation films that even the most patriotic audience member had become heartily sick of them. Eugene Dennis' narration was so overdramatized that viewers were prone to begin chuckling in the wrong places. Critics were unimpressed, though they praised the uncredited editor for his painstaking efforts to assemble the footage at hand into a chronological continuity. Hell's Holiday ran 90 minutes, which all things considered, was about an hour and a half too long.
