A Habsburg prince turned taxi-driver meets his former love.
John Barrymore is perfectly cast as the fallen Habsburg prince, Rudolf, reduced to making a living as a taxicab driver by the fortunes of war and the fall of the empire. Barrymore brings to this role the perfect mix of tragedy, bathos, and comic self-deprecation. Diana Wynyard is entirely believable as his erstwhile lover dissatisfied with the clinical attentions of her psychiatrist husband, Frank Morgan, and longing for the lost days at Schoenbrun. Eduardo Cianelli, Henry Travers, Una Merkle, and May Robson round out the ensemble cast in this highly enjoyable period piece. Sadly, as Diana Wynyard's character finds, we all have to live in the present.
