Recreating a role that he had played on stage and in a silent film, Arliss brings class and elegance to this early talkie about the British politician in one of Warner's first biopics.
George Arliss vehicle is pretty stagey, but worth seeing for his title performance.
good in its day; too stagy and hammy for today's audiences and tastes
It's a delightful film that brings back nostalgia for the good old days of 1874.
Weighed down by a terribly outdated acting style and leaden direction, but George Arliss's Oscar-winning performance makes it watchable.
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.
