Betty Balfour, who seemingly starred in every third movie made in London during 1930, heads the cast of The Vagabond Queen. The diminutive heroine plays a serving girl who poses as a princess, a harmless deception that blossoms into big-time trouble when she's forced to go through the coronation. Adding to Balfour's travails is the presence of a comic-strip assassin who intends to bump off Her Royal Highness. Luckily, the heroine's boyfriend comes to the rescue, but for a while he's more hindrance than help. Many of the best gags, including a cute jibe at bargain-basement department stores, have next to nothing to do with the plot proper.
