Storyline

Balkan Prince Henry has two wishes, to meet Lauren Bacall and see the "real" America. He befriends cabbie Buzz Williams and, without knowing the microphone is live, the two stage a debate on democracy versus monarchy broadcast back to the Prince's homeland. A plebiscite there puts Henry out of a job. Flying to MIlwaukee to become a beer salesman, he meets Bacall on the seat next to his, but a tap on his shoulder means he must give up his seat (and dream) to Bogie. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@cc.wwu.edu>

Both actors really were from Wisconsin
25 November 2012 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Perhaps unknown to most of the posters here, both stars of this movie, Jack Carson and Dennis Morgan, were born in Wisconsin of which Milwaukee is the biggest city so there is something of an inside joke here! Dennis Morgan was born in tiny Prentice, Wisconsin, and went to college at Carroll College in Milwauke as did Jack Carson. Carson was born in Canada but his family moved to Milwaukee soon after and he always regarded that as his home town. So this is kind of an inside joke in a script full of inside jokes. Carson and Morgan were great friends. Carson died the same day Dick Powell did.

This is not a great movie but it is an entertaining one and with the startling cameo from....at the end, what could be better?
