This Mark Twain doppelganger tale of rags and royalty in 16th-century England is sumptuously produced and full of high drama and adventure, with Errol Flynn swashbuckling between the precocious Mauch twins--Bill and Bobby. The look-alikes decide that they will switch roles as a lark, one

being Prince Edward (later King Edward VI), the other a beggar boy. Despite the beggar boy's outlandish behavior in his new station, the royal court and advisors accept him as the heir to the throne. The true Edward, however, is submerged in low-life London and, when he decides he's had enough of

the game, asserts that he is the real prince. Miles Hendon (Flynn), a soldier of fortune, meets the real Edward and is amused by his claims to the throne, thinking him mad until he begins to believe the emphatic urchin just as the impostor is about to be crowned king. Enemies at court send an

assassin (Alan Hale) after the boy, but he is prevented from carrying out his evil task by Miles, who saves the real king-to-be at the last moment.
