Lew Cody stars as Tony Townsend, a top-hatted "international adventurer" who gets into a heap of trouble when he runs out of money at the fancy French resort of Monte Carlo. Escaping the authorities, the dapper Tony -- who somewhere along the line has been forced to relinquish his trousers as a down-payment for his board bill -- hides out in the hotel room of prim American schoolteacher Sally (Gertrude Olmstead). He persuades her to protect him from arrest, which she does reluctantly. Clearly, these two were meant for each other, though neither realizes this inevitability until the closing scene. Along the way, Tony poses as one Prince Boris, which does not rest well with the real Boris (Roy D'Arcy). This MGM "B"-plus feature was released in Great Britain as Dreams of Monte Carlo.
