Farrell is the son of the head of a huge plumbing concern, working his way up from the bottom, who is hired to fix the pipes in a European castle which is being rented by an impoverished prince and his daughter O'Sullivan. The prince wants her to marry someone of his choice, but she's

determined to wed Farrell, and ultimately gets things her own way. Farrell and Janet Gaynor usually were paired as lovers ever since SEVENTH HEAVEN in 1927, but Farrell was matched suddenly with O'Sullivan for PRINCESS AND THE PLUMBER. The film closely followed the Farrell-Gaynor bomb HIGH SOCIETY

BLUES, a picture which even disgusted Gaynor, who refused to do any more musicals and, in fact, packed up and went to Hawaii with her mother, leaving Farrell to find another partner. While Gaynor was pouting somewhere along Waikiki, Farrell made LILIOM with Rose Hobart, and then THE PRINCESS AND

THE PLUMBER, which the critics of the time found undistinguished and conventional.
