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.

Implausible, Labored -- and Cute
8 August 2005 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

Dennis Morgan is highly unconvincing as a prince. He and Jack Carson worked together often and are appealing -- in a way. The supporting cast is fine.

Throughout, there are hints at a sexual interest between the two men. (You'd never fins that with Hope and Crosby, who were a more famous, but -- to me -- less appealing team.) Maybe I imagined them but if so, my imagination was working overtime.

The notion that a man would be pleased, actually pleased, that he is no longer a prince is very much in step with today's anti-elitist times. Morgan finds out that monarchy was voted out and democracy voted in. Is he upset? At all? No. He is happy to be able to stay in Brooklyn and, well, without giving anything away, maybe return to the title city.
