The plot in one sentence: Daddy, buy me a prince right now!
Ossi Oswalda is a nouveau riche American girl who is determined to marry into German nobility. Harry Liedtke is a penniless prince hounded by creditors. It should be simple but director Ernst Lubitsch has other plans! Slightly naughty but mostly nice, this clever romantic comedy is one of the gems of German cinema.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.Ossi lands her prince when she finds him completely plastered and takes him home.
If it were a dessert it would be: Chocolate Stout Cupcakes. Cute confection improved immeasurably by the addition of booze.
