This film features in Autobiography's list of "social films of lost Sunday television":

"The shadowy social films of lost Sunday television are Oliver Twist (1948) (in which career-criminal Bill Sikes says ‘There’s light enough for what I ’ave to do!’), London Belongs to Me (1948), The Blue Lamp (1950), I Believe in You (1952) and Sapphire (1959). In The Painted Smile (1962), the statuesque womanhood of comely Liz Fraser attempts to frame an uncomplicated Tony Wickert for the murder of her boyfriend in the recurring British theme of happiness not to be found."
