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.

These Milwaukee Guys-A Wisconsin Favorite ***1/2
3 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dennis Morgan teamed with Jack Carson in an earlier film with Ann Sheridan.

What makes this film so good is that eventually the 2 guys will change status and accept what has become of them.

The story basically deals with a Balkin Prince (Morgan, in a non-singing role) who comes to America on the eve of his country deciding whether or not to maintain the monarchy or change to a republic. His goal is to spend some time with the common people and of course, he meets up with cab driver Carson.

Naturally, Joan Leslie, Carson's girlfriend, falls for our prince and there are some very funny scenes as the FBI trails the trio.

The ending is a good one with a big surprise. It has something to do with Morgan's goal throughout the picture.
