In this sprightly, if not quite effervescent, Depression-era comedy (1934), Sylvia Sidney reunited with her Madame Butterfly (1932) costar Cary Grant and director Marion Gering for a respite from her career-making melodramas and crime stories. She's cast as both an obscure European princess on a goodwill tour of America and the lookalike struggling actress the tour sponsor (Edward Arnold) hires as a stand-in after the royal comes down with the mumps. Presaging his role in His Girl Friday (1940), Grant plays the hard-nosed newspaperman who falls for Sidney's malarkey. Preston Sturges was one of the movie's several writers, but later claimed his contribution was minimal, citing interference from producer B.P. Schulberg (Sidney's then lover).
