In the small European country of Avania, the King, who is only a child, is more interested in the arriving American cowboy show led by Bill Stevens than he is about affairs of the state. After meeting Bill, the King requests that a rodeo be held at the castle. The two begin a friendship based on Bill seeing in the King what he himself was like when he was a child. When the Regent of Avania abducts the King and his governess Marianne in an elaborate and widespread conspiracy to overthrow the King, Stevens puts on a real live wild west show to save the pair and maintain the monarchy as it should be. In doing so, Bill also hopes to demonstrate a wider perspective of life the American way. Written by
This film has one of the most bizarre endings of any film I've ever seen. After five people are sentenced to death for trying to overthrow a European monarch, the condemned, some cowboys and and some Indians start singing and dancing together, in a palace throne room, to an annoyingly catchy song called "That's the American Way." The king, takes off his crown and robes to reveal a cowboy outfit. This is a scene you truly have to see to believe!
