This text presents the story of a silent film completed in 1918, but never released and long thought to be lost or destroyed. The film biography was made with the co-operation of David Lloyd George but suppressed following an allegation that executives of the film company were of German origin. Twenty thousand pounds was paid to the film makers in compensation and the film was confiscated. In 1994 the complete feature was rediscovered amongst material supplied by Viscount Tenby (Lloyd George's grandson). The film has been restored and this book serves as a critical guide to the film. Illustrations include frame enlargements from the film and reproductions of trade advertisements and photographs of Lloyd George.
