Editorial Reviews

Every princess needs a Prince Charming. But lovely Princess Veronica didn't expect hers to be bellhop Jimmy Dobson. Hedy Lamarr is the princess, Robert Walker is the bellhop and June Allyson is a bedridden former dancer who secretly loves Jimmy in this frothy fairy tale set in prewar Manhattan's version of a palace: an elegant hotel complete with royal grounds (Central Park, of course). The fun begins when Jimmy mistakes Veronica for a new maid. She plays along, the two strike up a friendship and complications - romantic and political - ensue. The obvious screen chemistry between rising stars Walker and Allyson drew audiences again when they costarred later the same year in The Sailor Takes a Wife.

4.0 out of 5 stars June and Rags Are Wonderful November 16, 2011
Princess Veronica (Hedy Lamarr) has returned to America to claim the love of her life, a man she dismissed years ago for his lack of royal blood. Now she wants to follow her heart, but he is not so quick to take her back. Meanwhile, she employs a bellboy named Jimmy (Robert Walker) to be her personal assistant. He is taken by her beauty and falls in love with her.

The real reason to watch this movie though is not for the primary story, but for the secondary characters. June Allyson plays an invalid who is in love with Jimmy and Rags Ragland plays Jimmy's friend who has eyes for June. These two are absolutely wonderful. June is very beautiful and she's heartbreaking at times. Her ability to cry on cue is put to good use. This is an interesting part for her; when she was a young girl, a tree fell on her and almost made her an invalid. It must have been odd to play out what might have been. Rags is alternately funny and heartbreaking, and this role shows what an underrated character actor he was.

3 1/2 stars. This is redeemed by June and Rags.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Silver Screen Cinderella story October 18, 2011
Verified Purchase
I purchased this movie on DVD because the synopsis sounded like something I would enjoy. After watching it I have to say that I really enjoyed this movie. It was light and airy and well casted. June Allyson was adorable, Robert Walker was charming and Hedy Lamarr was lovley. I really loved this movie and would recommend it to anyone who just enjoys a good fairy tale movie every now and again!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good cast, cute story, still misses a little July 15, 2011
Verified Purchase
When you throw together Robert Walker, Hedy Lamarr, June Allyson, and Agnes Moorehead you should have some sort of gold. Here you end up with bronze. The story is more of a reverse Cinderella with the main characters finding out what is really in their hearts. Rags Raglund is probably the best part of the film as the dim-witted, heart of gold buddy to Walker. The love interest for Lamarr is badly miscast and would have benefitted from a bigger star, but I suppose it would have trimmed the attention from Walker's bellboy. If you go in expecting a light romantic comedy you will probably enjoy the movie. It is not a classic though.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful "Love" story February 2, 2014
Verified Purchase
A nice romantic story about a hotel bellboy [Robert Walker], a foreign Princess [Hedy Lamarr] visiting USA and staying at this posh Hotel and an upstairs cripple neighbor [June Allyson] who had a secret love for the bellboy..Another Neighboe of the apartment building [Rags Ragland] played a dimwitted friend who tried to help his two friends.
The Bellboy meets the Princess, but he did not know she was a princess. and dated a few times with comical results. This story is kinda far fetched but is a cute love story with a nice ending. June Allyson's part is well done and heartfelt. Watching this story you had to also fall for June Allyson she played a touching part. Also has a real surprise ending. I know you will like this story, It's really cute!

5.0 out of 5 stars True Love Not Always Obvious January 4, 2014
Verified Purchase
True love wins and hearts heal; kind of corny? Maybe. Still, it is also wonderfully entertaining! June Allyson, Hedy Lamarr, and Robert Walker star.
