Trivia

Don Ameche was originally intended for the role of Jonathan as an adult, but director Henry King was able to persuade the studio to use the relatively unknown Tyrone Power in the role that would make him a star. See more »

Goofs

When Angerstein explains to young Blake the importance of British commerce, he conjures up English ships sailing to "...Hong Kong, Cape Town, Bombay...," he does this in the year 1770. Hong Kong was not an important port for British trade until it became a British colony in 1842, more than seventy years later. See more »

Enjoyable costume drama with a young Tyrone Power
1 June 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Lloyd's of London is a very enjoyable piece of entertainment.With those actors involved I wasn't surprised.Tyrone Power delivers a good early performance,but the acting honors go to George Sanders as a despicable regency cad.Madeleine Carroll is a radiant heroine. The story is only mildly engaging but one gets caught up in the beauty of the sets and the good direction of Henry King,who makes this picture flow easily. I hope this title will be available on DVD soon along with other Tyrone Power titles. He did a lot of very entertaining movies in the three decades he was active. So watch this one in good faith, you won't be disappointed.
