Goofs

In the scene where the news of the Russian invasion reaches the House of Commons, the members pass the news down the rows, one by one. However, several of the members start sharing the news before they could possibly have heard it from anyone next to them. The scene looks good, but doesn't hold up to scrutiny. See more »

Dull and disjointed
13 March 2002 | by (www.moviemoviesite.com) – See all my reviews

Watching this dismal movie was like being forced to watch educational programmes at school - dull, desperately boring, and seemingly interminable. Having said that, the movie seems to speed through Disraeli's career; episodic to such a degree that people age thirty years from one scene to the next, each episode is so short that it is impossible to become truly involved in the story. The film was obviously a war-time propaganda piece, and the symbolism is embarrassingly heavy-handed, even for the early Forties. The acting is adequate, although Gielgud sometimes hams chronically, especially as the elder Disraeli.
