In 1796, Captain George Brummell of the 10th Royal Hussars Regiment offends the Prince of Wales with his straightforward outspokenness and gets fired from the army but is chosen as the Prince's personal advisor.
MGM bought the rights for this movie from Warner Brothers in 1939, with intentions to star Robert Donat.
Lord George Gordon Byron:
The trouble with most men of superior intellect is their pride. And a proud man can be just as foolish as a fool.
When the mad King George III hides from Brummel and the prince behind the draperies, the boom shadow makes a prominent appearance on the wall at the top right of the screen.
