"Well, there are a lot of complications and funny situations which add up to a pretty good time if you enjoy light comedy."
|With Sylvia Sidney.|
Thirty-Day Princess - Review is taken from 'The Films of Cary Grant' by Donald Deschner (1973):
"Thirty-Day Princess is a jolly and amusing romantic comedy about a princess from Taronia who comes to the United States to create favorable publicity for a bond issue, but unfortunately gets the mumps. In real life, of course, it is the investor in foreign bonds who gets the mumps and the megrims, while Mr. Morgan gets the commission. Deciding that a substitute Princess must be shown to the public, banker Gresham has detectives search New York for an actress who resembles the Princess. They find Nancy Lane (Sylvia Sidney) and set her on the trail of the city's most influential paper publisher, whose delight it has been to bait big bad bankers. This publisher hasn't got any more chance of escaping Nancy than a little tailor has of escaping General Johnson and the NRA. Well, there are a lot of complications and funny situations which add up to a pretty good time if you enjoy light comedy. Miss Sidney is fine in a dual role, and Cary Grant, Edward Arnold, Vince Barnett, Henry Stephenson and others render good support. J. P. Morgan should see this picture: its comedy ideas may help him to sell some more Peruvian bonds."
