This ponderously directed film traces the reign of the prince regent following the Napoleonic wars. Parker spends much time trying to marry off his unruly daughter, Hopkins, to a number of acceptable nobles, but to no avail because she selects an impoverished German prince to wed. Aumont,

as Leopold, is kind, devoted, and very princely. His marriage to Hopkins (consuming the last half of the film) is joyous until the birth of their child, when the baby and mother die during the delivery. A poorly mounted costume drama with a complicated script that moves at a snail's pace.

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
