~Anna Q. Nilsson & James Kirkwood~
~Plot Synopsis~
The Booth Tarkington-Harry Leon Wilson play was filmed once previously, in 1914, by Cecil B. DeMille
and Oscar Apfel. For the 1922 version, director George Fitzmaurice seems to have relied more on the
picturesque backgrounds -- it was filmed on location in England and Italy -- than he should have.
Genevieve Granger-Simpson (Anna Q. Nilsson) and her brother Horace (Geoffrey Kerr) go to Europe on
the fortune left to them by their father. Their guardian, Daniel Forbes Pike (James Kirkwood), stays
behind in Kokomo, Indiana. But when he hears that Genevieve is being romanced by a certain Prince
Kinsillo (Norman Kerry),who is very interested in her large dowry, Pike packs his bags and heads for
Italy -- and it just so happens that Pike loves Genevieve himself. On his way to stop her involvement with
the so-called Prince, Pike helps out a traveler who happens to be the King (John Miltern), traveling
incognito. With his help, he reveals the Prince and his supposedly royal cohorts as fakes and wins
Genevieve's heart.
