Critical reception

The New York Times wrote, "another of Sir Arthur Conan Boyle's tales of the master detective, slightly changed as to action and entirely as to title, provides both excitement and laughter at the Strand. "The Missing Rembrandt," a British production...brings back a number of screen actors who by this time seem to be perfectly at home in their parts. The Sherlock Holmes of Arthur Wontner is the same ascetic-looking unraveler of mysterious crime; the Dr. Watson of Ian Fleming exclaims: "Marvelous, my dear Holmes," as he has in other pictures of the series; the Mrs. Hudson of Minnie Raynor is as plump and cockneyish as ever, and the Scotland Yard Inspector Lestrade of Philip Hewland is as unimaginative as the police official in question is meant to be."
