Movie Info

Baroness Orczy, author of The Scarlet Pimpernel, came up with the story upon which The Emperor's Candlesticks was based. As in Pimpernel, the theme is international intrigue, but this time the setting is pre-World War One Europe and Russia rather than Revolutionary France. William Powell and Luise Rainer are spies working for opposing empires (Russian and Austrian) who travel undetected amidst the Nobility while plotting their plots. As they waltz about various ballrooms dressed to the nines,

In Rainer's case, The Emperor's Candlesticks seems unusually revealing, doffing the dropcloth from exactly the sort of peculiar, temporarily arresting artifact she was, guaranteed to inspire buyer's remorse.

Audience Reviews for The Emperor's Candlesticks

If William Powell is in a film his charm automatically gives the film 3 stars. Enjoyable film about two spy's on opposite sides who have both hidden secret messages in some antique candlesticks. Powell and Rainer are great together, he is the one who taught her film acting years before.The movie gets a little goofy at the end and it's not one of Powell's best. All and all it's enjoyable and looks nice.
