Thirty Day Princess ★★½ 1934

Princess Catterina (Sidney) comes to New York, immediately gets sick, and is unable to fulfill her royal obligations. Banker Richard Gresham (Arnolds), who has a lot financially invested in the visit, finds a double in struggling actress Nancy (Sidney again). But newspaper publisher Porter Madison (Grant) gets suspicious, despite falling for the dame. There are a few more comedic plot points but Sidney and Grant carry through the familiarity with loads of charm. 74m/B DVD .
