Another Winning Film Starring George Arliss
19 July 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

Wise & benevolent, a king sporting the heart & soul of a common man is forced by revolution to abdicate. He returns to the wife & daughter he hasn't seen in 18 years, but soon discovers it is no easy task to reclaim the life of an ordinary man. Now a royalist plot may restore him to the throne, making the King's retirement merely THE KING'S VACATION.

George Arliss, that most watchable & urbane of movie actors, is utterly charming in this short, sweet film. Delivering a drama lesson with every glance & gesture (watch him in the scene in which he must meet the largest family in his kingdom), Arliss is

  • as always - a pure delight. It is a shame that he is all
but forgotten today.

Kudos should also go to Florence Arliss, for her sensitive portrayal of the Queen. A frequent costar of her husband's, Mrs. Arliss graced her scenes with a quiet dignity. Dick Powell also appears - but does not sing - in a small role as a mechanic in love with the King's daughter.

Fine production values tremendously help the impact of this lovely film.
