Balkan Prince Henry has two wishes, to meet Lauren Bacall and see the "real" America. He befriends cabbie Buzz Williams and, without knowing the microphone is live, the two stage a debate on democracy versus monarchy broadcast back to the Prince's homeland. A plebiscite there puts Henry out of a job. Flying to MIlwaukee to become a beer salesman, he meets Bacall on the seat next to his, but a tap on his shoulder means he must give up his seat (and dream) to Bogie.Written by

After the scene in which Buzz receives the call from the White House several newspaper stories are shown. The "Atlanta Herald" story goes for one paragraph about Buzz. The next paragraph begins, in a different type font, with a description of what was likely the newspaper's original account of an auto accident. See more »
drunk driving joke about spouse abuse Buzz and Henry
This film is a bit like two older George Arliss films, "The Millionaire" and "The King's Vacation"...especially "The Millionaire". This is because like "Two Guys From Milwaukee", this is a Warner Brothers film about a very important man deciding to 'slum it'...and hang with the common folk. While not quite as good as the Arliss films, it is much easier to watch, as TCM often shows this Dennis Morgan/Jack Carson film.
Prince Henry (Morgan) from some fictional European country is traveling to America. But he's sick of all the fancy parties and receptions and just wants to see America like an ordinary guy. So, he sneaks off the train and goes incognito in New York...where he soon meets Buzz (Carson) and they go on a series of adventures. Unfortunately, romance also occurs...unfortunate because this eventually sets these two new friends against each other. Fortunately, they're able to get past this. But the next problem...that's NOT so easy to overcome and that is the Prince's tenuous hold on the throne. It seems a discussion with Buzz about the monarchy was broadcast over the radio--and Henry talks about how he prefers a democracy. Soon the people of his country will get to decide whether they agree with him or not!
This is a sweet and enjoyable, albeit slight, film. Pure fantasy but quite enjoyable.
