The princess is escaping from her marriage with Sir Humperdinck...
I actually compared it to the marriage of Prince Valium and Princess Vespa from Spaceballs
while watching. Which earned a small chuckle from the wife.
Damn, that fits so much better. I wish I had thought of that before I made my post. Oh well ...
You know, that's really the only problem I had with the film. Maybe all this stuff wasn't cliche back in 1917, but today it just doesn't work. Seinfeld is Unfunny
pretty much doomed this film at the box office.
