Lively comedian Dorothy Gish plays an unlikely grand duchess in this Paramount picture. Marie Louise (Gish) presides over a section of the mythical kingdom of Bulgravia -- not that she really wants to. Like most Dorothy Gish characters, she's more interested in having fun than in doing anything remotely responsible. One day, she sneaks out of the palace and comes across a group of American soldiers playing baseball. She joins them and manages to hit a home run. She's also a hit with Sergeant Richard Ellis (Ralph Graves), who asks her to join him at a jazz dance that night. Marie is game to go, but her ladies-in-waiting drag her home. Ellis returns to America, but meanwhile, one of Marie's court -- Captain Moro (George Siegman) -- turns out to be a revolutionary conspirator. He and his men take over the kingdom and Marie escapes to America with the priceless royal crown. Moro, who wants to get his hands on the crown, follows. Marie gets a job as a cook in a coffee shop, and she once again meets up with Ellis. Moro finds her too, but Ellis battles with him and turns him over to the police. Ellis and Marie are united.
