Young April
With its mythical kingdom theme, this romance was not terribly original. But it does feature a couple of interesting aspects; it was produced by (although not directed by) Cecil B. DeMille, and it features both Joseph Schildkraut and his father, the esteemed Rudolph Schildkraut as the prince and king, respectively. Crown Prince Caryl (Joseph Schildkraut) has to marry the arch duchess in order to ascend to the throne currently occupied by his father, King Stefan (Rudolph Schildkraut). Caryl, who is not looking forward to this, decides to have one last fling in Paris. Meanwhile, the arch duchess,Victoria Cecelie (Bessie Love), has just left finishing school and decides to see Paris disguised as a plain American girl. It's easy to guess that the two immediately meet and fall deeply in love. Eventually Caryl admits his identity and goes home to tell his father that he will only marry the girl he loves. Victoria writes him a note confessing her real identity, but it is intercepted by Caryl's uncle,Prince Michael (Bryant Washburn), who wants to take Caryl's place on the throne. Caryl abdicates, and as he is leaving, he finds Victoria in all her regalia preparing to wed Michael. Caryl kidnaps her and they take off in a plane, where they are married in mid-air. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
