Trivia

Due to the public backlash against movie musicals in late 1930 and early 1931, Warner Brothers retooled most of their musical films set for release by cutting all or most musical numbers from those films. 'Her Majesty Love' had several numbers deleted, including a tap dance number by 'Marilyn Miller'. See more »

Quotes

Fred von Wellingen: I'm sick and tired of ball bearings! I don't care whether the order calls for 5 ball bearings, 7 ball bearings or a bowling alley full of ball bearings.

Interesting pre-code musical comedy
15 July 2003 | by CHARLIE-89See all my reviews

Clearly influenced by the German musical comedies of the time, William Dieterle's first American film is a delightful pre-code musical comedy starring Marilyn Miller, of the Ziegfeld Follies. The real treat is the fun performances by such early comic legends of the stage and screen like W.C. Fields, Leon Errol, Ford Sterling and Chester Conklin. Songs add to the atmosphere of the story. The most notable aspect of this film is the technical brilliance of the cinematography and editing. Filmed with a much more fluid camera than the average film of 1931, with many scenes transitioned by brilliant dissolves. Worth the watch if you can find it.
