Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The main character in 'The Prince of Monte Carlo' is a London detective, who on arriving at the casino at Monte Carlo, is mistaken for the Prince. In order to carry out his work, he decides to keep up the character. He is funny throughout - his blunders and how he gets out of them keep the house 'in a roar of laughtr'. The duelling scene is extremely funny.
