The House of Rothschild (1934) is an American film written by Nunnally Johnson from the play by George Hembert Westley, and directed by Alfred L. Werker. The final sequence (approximately 3 minutes) was one of the first shot in the three-strip Technicolor process.
The film begins at the home of Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812) and his wife Guttle Schnapper (1770–1812). As one of their sons sees the taxman coming, they hurry and hide their wealth, including currency, silver, etc. However, the taxman finds some of it hidden in the basement, and decides to charge Rothschild less than the amount due, but keep the money with him. Later, as Mayer Amschel Rothschild is lying on his deathbed, he instructs his five sons to start banks in different countries across Europe…..
What will I receive? Your film will come on a DVD-R disc in a plastic DVD sleeve with no artwork. The title of the film will be written on the sleeve for your convenience.
