The Story - Just Briefly
The story is a a pleasant bit of fluff, typical of many light romantic comedies of the day. Ty plays Alexander Brown, a young man who has gotten himself into a bit of trouble with a debt at a Paris gambling table. After he writes a bad check for his debt, he is threatened with being tossed into jail. In order to make good on his debt, he goes along with a scheme to pose as a Russian prince. The "prince" will try to charm Laura Ridgeway (Loretta Young), an American heiress; marry her; then pay the debt from her money. Alex has no trouble getting her to fall for him. Complicating the situation, though, is the fact that the real Russian prince shows up and demands that Alex quit using his name. Another problem arises when Alex finds himself falling for Laura. At this point, he wants to back out on the scheme. There are quite a few hoops to jump through before the entire situation is resolved.
