This romantic comedy is based on the Broadway play of the same name.

When Millionaire playboy Albert Belfort sees the beautiful Grand Duchess Zinnia at the theatre he is instantly smitten. However when the Grand Duchess refuses his introduction Albert is forced to follow her to her hotel where he contrives a way to meet this lovely aristocrat, ultimately he decided to approach her suite pretending to be a waiter for the hotel. Of course Albert isn’t a very good waiter and his impropriety doesn’t make a good first impression.

54 minutes with a music score by David Knudtson
