The Roberston-Cole Studio had just merged with Joseph P. Kennedy's Film Booking Offices when the company released the 1926 silent comedy The Adorable Deceiver. Alberta Vaughan plays an exiled European princess who, to help support her father after, agrees to impersonate....herself! Her employer, wealthy and handsome Harland Tucker, hopes that by introducing his mother (Cora Williams) to a phony princess, he'll cure mom of her social climbing. Before Alberta reveals her true identity, she exposes a pair of jewel thieves, who are themselves posing as nobility (whew!) Based on the play Triple Trouble by Harry O. Hoyt, Adorable Deceiver was smoothly directed by future Monogram mainstay Phil Rosen.
