Storyline

Revolution breaks out in a small European kingdom, and a young princess is forced to flee for her life. She heads for the neighboring country, which just happens to be ruled by the king she is betrothed to. Unfortunately, the new revolutionary government won't let citizens leave, which she actually doesn't mind all that much because she's not particularly jazzed about marrying the elderly king. He sends a young naval officer to bring her across the border, but in order to do so they are forced into a marriage of convenience. Complications ensue. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Jeanette MacDonald fans will delight
21 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

If I didn't know better, I'd have sworn I was watching a Jeanette MacDonald/Nelson Eddy flick here. The plot is simple, the singing is divine, and anything that can go wrong - WILL.

The basic plot goes thus: a beautiful princess, who is to be married off to some prince that she has never met, is suddenly forced to flee her castle and home town as the villagers revolt, many with the intention to capture the poor princess. She has to get herself to neutral ground as quickly as possible, but then, once there, finds that she is still not safe, and can still be captured as she is not a citizen of the neutral territory, merely a refugee. Of course she can become a citizen by marrying someone who lives in the neutral territory, but then, what will her betrothed have to say about that idea?

A thoroughly enjoyable musical that I would gladly recommend to anyone. Princess Charming has 'charmed' 9 out of 10 stars from me.
