ADOLPHE MENJOU As Europe's Great Lover. Greta Nissen as the Parisian dancer who charmed him. Bessie Love as the American girl who won his love. You'll love them all! (Print Ad- Douglas Daily Dispatch, ((Douglas, Az.)) 7 September 1926)
Adolphe Menjou is king of a small European country. He comes to New York to help secure a contract to develop his country's oil, but then sneaks away from his hotel for some fun in Coney Island, meets young woman Bessie Love, and accepts an invitation to a county house to be with ordinary people.
Adolphe Menjou has his typical rich playboy role but doesn't do much playing. Bessie Love doesn't answer the question 'why was she a big star in silent pictures?'.
Some Coney Island location shooting, including a roller coaster ride, but the Coney Island atmosphere is better seen in many other movies, for example some of the Fatty Arbuckle pictures.
