In this adaptation of a play by A. E. Thomas, Richard Barthelmess stars as Prince Rupert of Koronia, who becomes tired of palace life and yearns to be among the common folk. On a visit to America, Rupert gets his wish, and even goes so far as to fall in love with down-to-earth Linda Lee Stafford (Lois Moran). Unfortunately, Rupert's brother, the Crown Prince (Harry Short) dies, and our hero, next in line for the throne, is called back to his own country. Rupert is finally freed to wed his beloved Linda when the Crown Prince's wife, who's been pregnant for ever so long, gives birth to the new regent of Karonia. Cast in the role of the King was one "George Spelvin," which is the nom de stage usually assumed by an actor whenever he doesn't wish to identify himself by his own name. Further down the cast list is a real-life "royal," Prince Rokneddine, playing a private secretary; also featured in a secondary role is Geoffrey Kerr, who played Prince Rupert in the original stage version of Just Suppose.
