Product Description

Lloyds of London (1936)

Director:

 Henry King

Writers:

 Ernest Pascal (screen play), Walter Ferris (screen play)

Stars:

 Tyrone Power, Madeleine Carroll, Freddie Bartholomew
 
Lloyds of London traces the rise to prominence of the venerable British insurance company, as seen through the eyes of fictional 19th-century Londoner Jonathan Blake (Tyrone Power, in his first starring role). A lifelong friend of naval hero Lord Nelson, Blake puts his job (and the future existence of Lloyds) on the line when he announces Nelson's victory at Trafalgar -- before it takes place. For those not interested in policies and premiums, the script serves up a romance between Blake and the lovely Lady Elizabeth (Madeleine Carroll), the unhappily married spouse of snotty aristocrat Lord Everett Stacy (George Sanders). Among the few real-life historical personages depicted in the film is Lloyds founder John Julius Angerstein, played by Sir Guy Standing. A box-office bonanza, Lloyds of London proved that 23-year-old Tyrone Power could carry a picture -- and that the recently-formed 20th Century-Fox was truly a major Hollywood studio.

  1. Remarkable Movie About History 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 9th 2020

    Years ago my wife and I stayed up until 2:30 AM watching this movie. We thought so much of this movie that we purchased a VHS copy of the movie. The VHS copy was so bad that the seller gave us our money back. We were very disappointed. When I saw the movie on Zeus, I was wary of the condition of the movie. We were very pleased with the quality of the DVD.
