Open, general discussion of classic sound-era films, personalities and history.
Just watched Arliss's Oscar-winning performance as the wily Prime Minister. Unfortunately the film cut out before the end, but I don't think much was missing. We had got to where (SPOILER) Mrs Dizzy has recovered from being at Death's Door and the pair are about to be presented to Queen Victoria, so I suspect I missed only a few feet of film plus the end credits. Would I be correct in assuming this?
Yes, there's was perhaps 30 seconds left before the fade out. The final scene may have had a bit more suspense back in the day because it may have been more commonly known that the real Mrs.Disraeli died a year before the Suez Canal purchase.
