HOUSE OF ROTHSCHILD, 1934 B&W
The House Of Rothschild 1934, Excellent historical and romantic drama about the prominent Rothschild family.
Ater the Napoleonic Wars the house of Rothschild attained increasing power, and in 1822 all five brothers were created barons by Emperor Francis I of Austria.
The first important member of the Rothschild's, was Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1743-1812), son of a money changer in the Jewish ghetto of Frankfurt, Germany.
Although the English Rothschilds are still one of the country's important financial dynasties, the French goverment nationalized the bank owned by the French branch of the family in 1981 and the family has only a minor presence in the United States.
Mr. George Arliss, a great actor and star in many early films gives an outstanding performance as he plays duel roles in this great epic as the father Mayer Rothschild and also as the son Nathan Rothschild.
The romantic role between the two Youngs, Loretta Young & Robert Young as Julia Rothschild and Captain Fitzroy is a stand out during the grand ball when in the last few minutes of the movie it changes from black and white to the restored colorized version in early technicolor.
The evil villainous role of the anti-Semetic Prussian nobleman, Count Ledrantz is played impressively by Boris Karloff of "Frankenstein" fame..
This movie was directed by Alfred L. Werker and was also an academy award nominated movie for: Best Picture...
A wonderful historical and romantic movie.
This DOES have the restored COLOR sequence version during the grand ball when in the last few minutes of the movie it changes from black and white to the restored colorized version in early technicolor.
