  • A Treasure from 1936

    • AJ
    • 5/7/14

    Lloyd's of London is a terrifically atmospheric historical drama from 1936. It has great stars Tyrone Power, Madeline Carroll, George Sanders and Freddie Bartholomew, among many others. The story, based on the founding of the great insurance firm, may be exaggerated, but it is the type of fictionalizing that Hollywood did to dramatize -make legendary- the object of the story and make it entertaining to the hoi poloi. This is a beautiful, first class production from America's Golden Age of Cinema. It's one of those movie treasures that are artistically worthy of being shared and preserved as part of America's cultural heritage. It really should be shown on TV (TCM?) and made available on DVD.

  • Goodbye Horatio

    Twentieth Century Fox gambled on a young actor and was rewarded with it 's most popular leading man once this film opened. Tyrone Power became a huge star with this film and remained one until his death. George Saunders Madeleine Carroll and others are great in supporting roles. Freddie Bartholomew's performance as Jonathan at the start of the picture is fine and emotionally impactful . His hearty 'goodbye Horatio ' to his young playmate Horatio Nelson is movingly echoed at the final frame by Tyrone /Jonathan, which brings the story full circle. What an ending! A lovely production that rewards viewers visually and emotionally. They definitely don 't make movies like this anymore. Another example of why TCM 's format relying on classic movie lovers remains so popular today.

  • Lloyds of London (1936)

    • James Higgins
    • 5/3/10

    Lloyds of London has that amazingly good production quality MGM was so well known for in the 1930's. Freddie Bartholomew is one of the best child actors ever and is excellent. The supporting cast is wonderful - C. Aubrey Smith, Sir Guy Standing, Una O'Connor, Miles Mander, Montagu Love and George Sanders are all great. Superb atmosphere, outstanding art direction and costumes, the cinematography as well. A fine classic with notable early appearances by Tyrone Power and George Sanders.

  • Incomplete Collection of 30's movies without this!

    • Marjorie Pennington
    • 1/28/10

    The story is well told, even though it's loosely based on reality. This movie is never shown and not avilable for home collections.

  • Great Movie

    • Kevin Rasmussen
    • 1/1/10

    Lloyds of London is the movie that helped inspire me to enter the insurance industry. It has everything - boyhood adventure, romance, technological innovation, history and business. Great acting by all involved, even down to the innkeeper. I like the use of the French language without subtitles, gives it a feel of authenticity.Much of the insurance info is/was correct: how Lloyds started, how a syndicate operates, the close relationship between a nation's economy and it's insurnace industry. Also listen close for the English drinking tune that was made into a somewhat well known church hymn.

  • Freddie and Tyrone at Their Finest

    • Reverie
    • 2/27/09

    This is a FANTASTIC movie; black in white never looked so colorful ! Freddie was encomparable as a child actor in his heyday and Tyrone was the perfect choice for the lead. Please bring this movie out on DVD. It's been gone too long. Today's "seniors" would welcome it back, and the younger generation who have a propensity for black and white movies would appreciate and enjoy seeing it. . .too!

  • Tyrone Powers

    I'd love to see this movie again. Perhaps when you do a Tyrone Power film festival you could include it as his first movie made for US.
