While the basic story remained unchanged, the movie made many changes from the original operetta. 14 of the original songs were eliminated, 3 new songs were written and almost all of the original lyrics from the remaining songs were replaced. In the stage version, the song "Just We Two" is sung by the Princess Johanna and a character who does not appear in the film, Count Tarnitz. She and Tarnitz are secretly in love but must part for state reasons. In addition, the time span of the play (more than two years) was reduced to only a few months in the film. See more »

This musical is dated but a wonderful love story/operetta that combines the music of Sigmond Romberg with the voice of Mario Lanza and the good looks of two young lovers (Edmond Purdome and ). It should be seen by young lovers who dream of old fashion romance, but find that sometimes the joy of a new love is dashed because of family tradition. In the case of the Student Prince, this is seen when the Crown Prince goes to University and finds himself among students who will someday be his subjects. But, he becomes "one of them, falls in love with the Tavern bar maid (Katie. Sadly, like most old-world love stories, he is called back to be with his sick grandfather, the King, who soon passes. The Prinde is now the King and must marry the lady pre-chosen for him, and, heartbroken, he returns to see Katie, who is now his subject, rather than his one true love. The music is some of the most romantic-Serenade and Beloved- that has been in a movie. Additionally, it may remind one of the camaraderie of fraternity life at University. All in all, a wonderful movie for young adults and senior citizens.
