Additional Info

Prince Rudolf's valet falls in love with a pretty voice over the telephone, invites his charmer to his master's first floor apartment, and then, naturally, puts off his livery and becomes a Prince - all this is relayed with an arid, wiry wit that is capital entertainment. Particularly when Prince Rudolf returns unexpectedly in person and sardonically accepts the situation by donning his valet's livery - particularly then are the lines neatly turned and the situations nicely groomed in the acting. Your sympathies are very much with the ambitious valet, who confesses that his previous love affairs have been confined to "cooks and maids, with the possibility of a governess at Christmas."
