GOING LOWBROW
ABOUT
The premise:—

Amid a peasant uprising, a feckless prince and his dizzy mother pretend to be commoners and blunder their way through low society. 
 
Also, the prince gets all googly-eyed over the boy next door. Only the boy next door also happens to be the leader of the revolution. Oh well, nobody’s perfect.

A few words on genre:—

Inasmuch as a main plot point of the story pertains to a dashing prince finding himself inexplicably hung up over some penniless indigent, I think it is more or less safe to call it a fairy tale. But let’s not forget its absurd gags, its superfluous musical numbers, its slaphappy homosexuality, its cloying romance, its unabashed anachronisms. What we’ve got, then, if we wish to be as accurate as possible, is a gay screwball fairy tale romance musical, with the occasional helping of 1930s Hollywood. God preserve us.
