Audience Reviews for The Princess Comes Across

  • May 30, 2018
    Paramount Studios liked the money Lombard and MacMurray generated when together and so this is their second of four pairings. This one takes the ocean voyage dream in consideration as a phony Swedish Princess and a rising jazz conductor/concertina player (?!?) must mix reluctant romance with some dastardly mystery aboard ship. Actually not as bad as it sounds, particularly with the welcome addition of recognizable supporting players hamming their usual ethnic types.

    Charming whimsy with a bit of mystery on the side. Carole and Fred spark off each other very well, with Alison Skipworth and William Frawley adding zip as their companions.
