Summary, etc.:
Anthony Hope's classic tale gets a decidedly 'un-classic' treatment at the hands of Oscar®-nominee Peter Sellers. The story begins when friends of the new King Rudolph of Ruritania fear for his life, and switch him with a look-a-like London cabby. Throw in two lovely blondes, treachery, and a battle for life and honor, and you get a zany and hilarious film from one of Hollywood's greatest comic actors. Golden Globe-winner Elke Sommer and Golden Globe-nominee Lionel Jeffries also star in this sidesplitting comedy.
