Breezy Raymond Griffith became a full-fledged screen star with this highly entertaining comedy. Alexis (Griffith), the prince of a European principality, is run ragged by his many duties -- trivialities such as christening ships, kissing babies, reviewing troops, and the like. But when he meets a girl (Mary Brian) and falls in love, he wants nothing except to be with her. Unfortunately, neither his position nor his prime minister (Gustav Von Seyffertitz) will allow it. On top of that, every time he steals a moment to talk to her, he is surrounded by hundreds of people who recognize him. The situation becomes even more frustrating when the king (Tyrone Power Sr.) dies, and Alexis winds up on the throne. He solves this dilemma by helping a revolutionist (Nigel de Bruliere) overthrow the government. Unfortunately, Alexis is so popular that he is elected president, so his duties never end. Fortunately, he is now a commoner so he can marry the girl.
