The Hero Gets to Underact
29 December 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

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.
