Storyline

Ousted from their homeland by the Bolshevik revolution, a royal Russian couple find themselves impoverished and living in Paris.

But once they are recognized for the royal couple they are, they must face new -- and formidable -- responsibilities. Written by Dan Navarro <daneldorado@yahoo.com>

not as funny as i was suspecting
31 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

I kept hearing this movie being compared to ninotchka, which is a movie I love, so I decided to check this out on turner classic movies. The plot can be confusing at times and their are a couple of funny scenes. Claudette Colbert and Charles Boyer are both good and so is Basil Rasthbone.
