Lloyd's of London combines romance and business in the fictionalized tale of an insurance company founded by a group of maritime insurance brokers who would insure anything. Jonathan (Freddie Bartholomew in his youth and Tyrone Power as an adult) and his friend Horatio (Douglas Scott) uncover a scheme of sailors to scuttle their ship and collect the insurance on the cargo and, after escaping with their lives, walk 100 miles to Lloyd's Coffee House, where the insurance syndicates congregate. Jonathan becomes a waiter at Lloyd's and is sent to Calais where he learns Napoleon will be arresting all Englishmen in France. He escapes, helping a beautiful woman named Elizabeth (Madeleine Carroll). After surviving the terrible crossing, they kiss passionately, but she leaves the next morning before he can say goodbye. He tracks her down only to learn she's married to Lord Everett Stacy (George Sanders). Jonathan enters the insurance syndicate with a goal of climbing so high in class and power that Elizabeth regrets her treatment of him. Henry King directed the 1936 drama that was nominated for two Academy Awards.moreless
