Synopsis

An offbeat comedy short from future Hollywood screwball director McCarey about a princess (Martha Sleeper) who must find a husband in twenty-four hours or forfeit her throne. Threatened by a greedy prime minister and his henchman (Oliver Hardy), she quickly marries a condemned man (Charles Chase) who is sentenced to die next weekend; she then returns home to rule her country. When the man is pardoned, he enlists the aid of a Jewish speculator (Max Davidson) to bankroll a journey to his new kingdom. Together, the two partners battle court intrigue, murder plots, and strange customs to emerge victorious.
