Trivia

According to cinematographer Ray Rennahan, the color finale was originally designed in soft pastels. The design scene was vetoed by executives, including William Randolph Hearst, who wanted to play up the color in the scene, and loud bunting was brought at in at the last minute to punch things up visually. "It was murder," recalled Rennahan. See more »

A must-see for Marion Davies fans.
6 February 2001 | by Briguy-14See all my reviews

Marion Davies is absolutely adorable as Beverly, an American college girl who must masquerade as her cousin, Prince Oscar of Graustark, lest he lose the throne. There is some interesting chemistry as she (in male drag) falls in love with her bodyguard... and he certainly seems to be smitten with the young "prince" too! Anyone who doubts Marion Davies talents as a comic actress should view this film.
