1927 - 1928

The Prince of Pilsen

Mistaken identity is the theme. Hans Wagner, a widowed brewer from Cincinnati, travels with his daughter Nellie to Nice, where his son Tom serves in the American Navy. On arrival, Hans is mistaken for Carl Otto, the Prince of Pilsen. When the true prince arrives from Heidelberg with a group of beer-drinking friends he decides to pretend to be a commoner and pursue Nellie. Tom falls in love with Edith, a young lady from Vassar, while Hans falls for Mrs. Crocker, a wealthy New York widow. Sir Arthur St. John Wilberforce is interested in marrying into Mrs. Crocker’s fortune so is jealous when she shows more interest in Hans. Hans is mistakenly found in possession of some secret documents but all is well once Carl Otto reveals that he is the true Prince of Pilsen. For the Orpheus production some Canadian references were added. Edith studies at McGill rather than Vassar, while Tom sails on the HMS Ottawa.
