This film is (very) loosely based on the book by Austrian author Felix Salten. It follows the life of the Lippizaner stallion Florian. Of special notice is the time when he pulled Emperor Franz Joseph's carriage.

This 1941 Universal comedy pairs two attractive stars in a not-so-screwball comedy that tries hard but has some problems. Aherne plays two look-alike men who switch places after drinking in a bar. When he wakes up the next morning he finds he mistaken for a millionaire married to Kay Francis. As he tries to convince people he's not the rich guy, he discovers the millionaire was just out of a nut house and had a shady history of embezzlement, adultery, and forgery. But the more he insists he's not the millionaire, the more everyone is convinced he's still nutty.
So-so but complete copy includes scenes listed as missing in other reviews, but probably don't really help much. The plot is just too far-fetched ends up repeating itself. Aherne and Francis are good together but the script and director (and maybe the editor) deflate the soufflé.
Co-stars include S.Z. Sakall, Nils Asther, Henry Stephenson, Dorothy Tree, Janet Beecher, Henry Kolker, Sarah Padden, Sig Ruman, and Marc Lawrence as a gangster named DeSoto. Billy Benedict has a nice bit as the messenger boy in the elevator. Silent star Charles Ray is supposedly in the cast in an unnamed part.
