The distinguished career of Academy AwardÂ® winner George Arliss is marked by his powerful portrayals of historical figures from Disraeli to Alexander Hamilton to Voltaire. Fans who don't know that Arliss also excelled at comedy are in for a treat with these three charmers. Drama mixes with laughs in Old English, as an indebted shipbuilder concocts a clever scheme to provide for his beloved grandchildren. Mary Astor costars in A Successful Calamity, a witty tale of a tycoon who feigns ruin to teach his inattentive kin that family means more than finance. To complete the triple bill, in The King's Vacation Arliss plays a not-so-merry monarch who takes a break from royal duties, only to discover the simple life is anything but.
