Bittersweet love story that is dated but still charming
16 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The ever elegant Adolphe Menjou portrays an impoverished King from a mythical country who comes to the USA to broker an oil deal. He escapes his regimented schedule and runs off to Coney Island (my favorite childhood place being from Brooklyn, New York) where he meets the girl, played by Bessie Love. Although they have a "love affair" their relationship is platonic but nevertheless intense. Hollywood had a thing for kings who socialize with the masses in the 1920's and 30's but this story (because of the superb direction by Monta Bell) is an exception. There is a real chemistry between the two leads which is missing in a lot of other king and commoner films. You can really sense the depth of their feelings for each other. A real bittersweet love story of the silent era. Too bad this is not on DVD or VHS.
