| Among Bobby Vernon's best
Like so many other shorts in the "Old Time Comedy Classics" DVD series, this one from volume 6 has an absolutely horrible musical score. They literally took any music they could find and stuck it in the film--in a very slapdash manner. Who would think to take the old hymns "Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus", "Amazing Grace" as well as "All Creatures Great and Small" and use them for accompaniment--especially since the movie has nothing to do with religion?! As for the print, in places it's also really bad, but at least that can be understood, as this was made from the only existing print.

In many ways, this reminds me of another Bobby Vernon film, RENO OR BUST. That's because both films star Bobby and consist of him trying to rescue his lady from being forced to marry a man she doesn't love. However, in this case she's being forced to marry the king of a fictional country and the king, unbeknownst to his subjects, is already married. However, unlike RENO OR BUST, the action is a bit better as is Bobby's performance. His sword fighting scenes are amazingly good for a comedian and the film is among the best of his extant films.
