George Arliss stars as Nathan Rothschild in this chronicle of the famed banking family at the time of the Napoleonic Wars. Loretta Young plays his daughter and Robert Young as her suitor. Boris Karloff also stars as the villain. The finale was originally shot in color.
"A fine picture on all counts in the acting, writing, and directing. It handles the delicate subject of anti-semitism with tact and restraint. The Rothschild family, through its intimate financial connection with the Napoleonic wars, affords a meaty story."
