Jeanette MacDonald fans will delight
If I didn't know better, I'd have sworn I was watching a Jeanette MacDonald/Nelson Eddy flick here. The plot is simple, the singing is divine, and anything that can go wrong - WILL.
The basic plot goes thus: a beautiful princess, who is to be married off to some prince that she has never met, is suddenly forced to flee her castle and home town as the villagers revolt, many with the intention to capture the poor princess. She has to get herself to neutral ground as quickly as possible, but then, once there, finds that she is still not safe, and can still be captured as she is not a citizen of the neutral territory, merely a refugee. Of course she can become a citizen by marrying someone who lives in the neutral territory, but then, what will her betrothed have to say about that idea?
A thoroughly enjoyable musical that I would gladly recommend to anyone. Princess Charming has 'charmed' 9 out of 10 stars from me.
