Description by OLDIES.com:

Orphan Victoria Sax receives the shock of her life when diplomats from the Kingdom of Saxheim arrive at school and announce that the girl is a Grand Duchess, and now one of the richest heiresses in the world. She is transported to Europe where she is to marry Prince Caryl, whom she has never met. En route Victoria and Prince Caryl meet and fall in love, however, neither reveals their true identity. Believing that he is in love with a commoner, the Prince abdicates his crown, and goes off to search for Victoria. Because Caryl has relinquished his title, Victoria is whisked away to marry Prince Boris, the king's loathesome brother, whom the girl detests. Former Prince Caryl learns of his folly too late, and launches a desperate plan to free the woman he loves before she is married to a scoundrel.

Leading lady Bessie Love (1898-1986) starred in the silent version of The Lost World (1925) and earned an Oscar nomination as Best Actress for The Broadway Melody (1929). Her successful career continued almost to the end of her life and earned her a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. After rising to fame in D.W. Griffith's Orphans Of The Storm (1921), Joseph Schildkraut would have memorable roles in scores of Hollywood classics including Cleopatra (1934), The Crusades (1935) and The Diary Of Anne Frank (1959), to name a few. He would bring home an Oscar in 1937 for his portrayal of Alfred Dreyfus in The Life of Emil Zola. Young April features Joseph's father, journeyman actor Rudolph Schildkraut, as King Stefan.
