  • This George Arliss Classic on DVD

    I might consider having this movie DVD; Criterion Collection, if necessary, as long as caption subtitles are implemented. I like George Arliss. It includes a good cast: Boris Karloff, Loretta Young, Robert Young, C. Aubrey Smith, etc. It also tells the humble beginnings of the Rothschild clan.

    A very important movie, a strike against antisemitism. A history that everyone should know about. Listening to Ariliss' speech to Boris Karloff when negotiating in what he will get in return for the loan reminded me of the demands of the civil rights movement of the 60's and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Loved Boris Karloff in this role. And C. Aubrey Smith is always fun to watch.

  • Great Movie!

    This movie was quite interesting for many reasons. Besides telling a bit condensed version of how the family started out, it is quite something to see the anti-semitism that took place even back then. Stranger is this film was filmed right before the Holocaust and in the movieone of the sons makes a bargain with one of the characters that if he lends him the monies he wanted, Jews in that area would no longer be persecuted, etc. So much for that. George Arliss is wonderful as always and I always like seeing Boris Karloff in a role other then Frankenstein. Robert Young and Loretta Young are a plus too. I definitely recommend this film.

  • Diferent Historic View

    It is very interesting to see how the topic was treated. This is the view of how the vision of the father was passed on to his sons and what was achieved by the Rothschilds at the time, as well as the main purpose for all the wealth they created. This is the view shown before the world went through World War II and the Holocaust. I am a descendant of the German branch living in Guatemala where my greatgrandparents came to live in the beginning of 1900's. with thier daughters It was also good to see hoy jews were portrayed at the time. I would like to know how close to the truth the story is.

  • Worth your time.

    The last 4 or so minutes of this picture are said to have been photographed in color. Indeed Natalie Kalmus has screen credit. So where was the color? In of all places you would think TCM would show the last minutes of this movie in color. BUT NO!
