The House of Rothschild
This sanitized take on the famed Rothschild family, a prominent European banking clan with Jewish roots, was in part a Hollywood effort to combat swelling tides of anti-Semitism during the 1930s. After patriarch Mayer (George Arliss) establishes the business, his five sons, led by Nathan (also played by Arliss), rise to significant heights, despite being dogged by a powerful politician (Boris Karloff). Meanwhile, Mayer's daughter (Loretta Young) falls for a handsome officer (Robert Young).
