Rembrandt (1936). Historical Drama. Directed by Alexander Korda. With Charles Laughton, Gertrude Lawrence, Elsa Lanchester and Edward Chapman.
The story is about Painter Rembrandt van Rijn, who deals with the death of his wife, the love of his life, Saskia and during her funeral, finishes her portrait, before he forgets what she looks like..
Soon after, his work takes a dark turn that offends most of his patrons. He becomes bankrupt, but begins to spend his time with pretty young maid Hendrickje, who makes him happy, in spite of how every one feels about her..
One of my favorite scenes, is toward the end of the film during a party when Rembrandt, shares his philosophy about his life. At first,they don't know who he is and everyone is surprised when they learn of Rembrandt's true identity..
