She's furious now because father is going out. Mother tries to boss everything - well, she not going to boss me! I'm not her husband. I'm going to lead my own life!
And may I ask when do you intend to start?
As soon as she's safely on her trip to America. One of these days, Mother will pick up a New York paper and discover her daughter has eloped. You *are* going to elope with me, aren't you, Freddy?
Oh yes, Anne. I wouldn't let you elope alone.

Stagy version of Robert Sherwood comedy about the waning days of a constitutional monarchy. Everyone overacts, except for director-star Lowell Sherman who acts urbanely tipsy most of the time. The story doesn't hold up well. Watch for Mary Astor in a leading role before she learned how to steal a scene.
