Lightweight and lighthearted adventure
4 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this last night. Wallace Reid was a major star back in the silent era.

This fun film has him winning a big pile of loot at Monte Carlo, then heading home with a buddy by motor car.

They stop over in some Baltic type town where revolutionaries are plotting the overthrow of a meek and mild king. Semi-gullible Wallace Reid decides to finance their revolt.

He meets the King's daughter and falls in love.

There's some amusing give and take between all the characters.

Reid and his traveling buddy introduce the locals to American slang and ideas.

The story takes it various turns and everyone comes out happy.

This film is pleasant stuff. No big deal. A nice lil' film that doesn't look quite as old as it is.

The print I saw had tinted scenes from beginning to end; red, green, blue, etc..according to mood of the scene.

The print I was seeing was fine - an 8 plus on a 1 - 10 scale.

I was surprised to see a black jazz band and singer in the film. 1919 is early times for jazz on film.

Wallace Reid was a pleasant looking dude...very American....he does a few physical stunts - kind of a combination of Douglas Fairbanks and Harold LLoyd.
