Stage Play On Film
George Arliss seems quite the consummate actor.Yes,this does seem rather stagy,but thanks for the history lesson.Found myself rooting 100% for Mr & Mrs Arliss,Joan Bennett.
'Disraeli' definitely shows its age
If Disraeli had been as dull and boring as this plodding film, I doubt he'd ever have been made prime minister of England.

A stagy account of how Benjamin Disraeli managed to claim the Suez Canal. Arliss became the first actor to win an Oscar for recreating a part he had played on the stage, as Disraeli, he plays matchmaker to Bennett & Bushell during a time of political intrigue. Arliss sometimes overacts his scenes & this sometimes plays more like a filmed stage play instead of an actual film. Still entertaining, nonetheless. I give it a 3/5.

This classic is showing it's age, but the story is still powerful, and remains a very interesting biography. George Arliss won an Oscar for his acclaimed performance, and he is quite an actor.
"Disraeli" (1929) on DVD Sooner Rather than Later
- Jeffrey Kenison
I think this movie should be on DVD sooner rather than later. After George Arliss won an Academy Award for best actor in this film.
