Arliss stars at 68
5 February 2005 | by (london) – See all my reviews

It is difficult to believe when our age of cinema concentrates on youth,that here we have a film whose star is 68 years old.George Arliss managed to give the same performance in every film of his that i have seen.Namely a wise old man who would always outwit his rivals by the last reel.In this film he plays an Eastern sultan who is being wooed by Britain and an Eastern power.He manages to play both at their own game and to come out on top.The running time is a brief 62 minutes which seems short for what must have been one of Gaumonts more prestigious productions.Mind you i do not think that the film would have been able to stretch much more.Rather intriguingly the next film for 3 of the cast(Laurie,Tearle and Mannheim)would be "The 39 Steps" in the same studios for Hitch.Also the Sultans son is played by Ballard Berkeley,none other than the immortal "Major" in "Fawlty Towers".
