Richard 'Skeets' Gallagher,
A Swedish princess boards an ocean liner in Europe en route to an acting career in America, and finds herself getting inconveniently attached to a bandleader returning home. To complicate matters, a blackmailer on board apparently knows she is not who she claims to be - and he has his sights set on other passengers with secrets of their own. In the meantime an escaped killer has stowed away under someone else's identity, and is killing again to cover his tracks; five international police detectives on board are heading the investigation to find him. When evidence points to the princess and bandleader, they must find the killer themselves - before he finds them. Written by
Carole Lombard reunites with Fred McMurray. Here she plays Swedish Princess Olga from Europe to America with her lady in waiting Gertrude Alwyn (played by the marvelous Alison Skipworth). Aboard the ship, she is reunited with Fred McMurray's character King Mantell who runs a band and plays a concertina. His sidekick is played by William Frawley. It's interesting to note that McMurray and Frawley would work together years later on "My Three Sons." Anyway, everybody has their secrets especially the Princess. Aboard the ship, there is an unsolved murder to be solved before they land in New York City. Anyway, it's an entertaining comedy and drama. I loved the chemistry between McMurray and Lombard. I also adore Alison Skipworth, a character actress, who is wonderful as the Princess's Lady in Waiting.
