With special guests! The life of Lord Edward Montagu is like a great English novel. At age two he became Lord Montagu of Beaulieu, a 10,000-acre estate with a 13th century residence named Palace House. After World War II, when the stately homes of England were being torn down or lost by financial hardship, Lord Montagu was determined to keep possession of Beaulieu and opened his home to tourists. But in the 1950s, scandal struck. Homosexuality was illegal in England and his involvement with fellow male peers became national news, as did his sensational trials and imprisonment. After he re-entered public life, Lord Montagu used his determination, charm, and brilliant business sense to found the first Motoring Museum in England, which turned his estate into a destination. The story of Lord Montagu is the story of England: extravagant, wild, and ultimately triumphant. –Cleveland International Film Festival
