Movie Info

Photos reveal that stage and film luminary George Arliss made a perfect Benjamin Disreli -- this silent was the filmed version of the Louis N. Parker play in which he had starred. The backdrop of this story reveals the prejudice surrounding the Jewish, middle-class Disraeli when he becomes prime minister, and his successful efforts to overcome Russian intrigues and acquire the Suez Canal for England. There's also romance offered by Arliss' wife, playing Disraeli's adored spouse, Lady Beaconsfield, and young lovers Louise Huff and Reginald Denny as Clarissa, the daughter of the Duke of Glastonbury and Charles, Viscount Deeford respectively. Arliss remade Disraeli as a highly successful talkie in 1929.
