Director: Frank Lloyd
Producer: Frank Lloyd
This film follows the lives of a wealthy London family and their servants from 1899 through to 1933, covering the events of the Boer war, the loss of the Titanic and World War 1. This film reflects the changing social conditions in England in the early 20th century, particularly the class differences. As an early talkie version of a stage play the production is dated in places, but some of the scenes, especially those with Diana Wynyard are powerful and poignant. Diana Wynyard was the frst British actress to receive an Oscar Nomination for her performance in this film. .
