Movie Info

British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli (George Arliss) is intent on buying the Suez Canal. If realized, the purchase would complete the British Indian Empire, but he is opposed in Parliament by the Liberals. Denied funding, Disraeli enlists the help of Lord Charles Deeford (Anthony Bushell) and the lovely Lady Clarissa Pevensey (Joan Bennett). Together, they scramble to find alternate funding before the Russians, who are also interested in the canal, beat them to it.

Audience Reviews for Disraeli

    Considering it was made the first year sound was prevalent the film isn't too stodgy but it is slow moving. Arliss is an actor of the grand manner which takes a little getting use to but he gives a good performance overall. Joan Bennett is sweetly appealing in her early blonde phase. She didn't really make a great impression for several years beyond this when she switched to being a brunette and a noir staple.

    Slightly entertaining dated film about former British Prime Minister Disraeli as he deals with bounced cheques and international intrigue..all about the Suez and simple matters like that.

    Very stagy, theatrical. Bored me. This is an early talky, so the movie industry was still struggling with adding sound and dialog to the picture. They let go of some of their good techniques from the silent era and tripped all over themselves rediscovering how to make movies.
