An American actress gets herself a titled husband in this routine comedy from Warner Bros. Unable to get work in her home country, Laurine Lynne (Beverly Roberts) travels to Vienna where her press agent, Joe Craig (Allyn Joslyn), convinces her to marry royalty. The lucky fellow is Prince Rupert (Patric Knowles), an impoverished nobleman now working as a waiter. Do the two of them fall in love despite this marriage of convenience? Of course they do, and in less than 60 minutes of screen time. M.K. Jerome and Jack Scholl provided three less-than-memorable songs to the rather trite proceedings: "Shall We Dream?," "Five Little Maids," and "Echo Mountain."
