This film is included on a DVD along with another one of Bob Hope's films, "Monsieur Beaucaire". Both are rather pleasant diversions, though neither are near Hope's best.
The film begins in the fictional country of Barovia. The King is making a speech when he is unexpectedly shot. As he appears on the verge of death, the General (Signe Hasso) goes on a mission to America to find the King's son--a child conceived during a brief and ill-conceived marriage to a commoner. It turns out that Hasso is looking for Bob Hope and he has no idea that he's next in line for the throne. Unfortunately, an underground organization of evil, the Mordia, are also looking for Hope, as they are the ones who shot the King and they want to rule Barovia. Much of the film consists of Hope and Hasso running from these killers and it's all cute fun. When they fall in love, it's not especially hard to predict, though it did seem to come rather out of the blue. In other words, there wasn't much of a build up to this. Despite this, the plot still worked up until the very end. Sadly, however, the ending is a total let-down in every way. It's a shame, really, as up until then I liked the film a lot and thought it among Hope's better films. But, the dumb ending undid a lot of my good will and as a result it's just a time-passer...a time-passer that could have been better.
