Fred MacMurray and Carole Lombard in The Princess Comes Across.

 does a hilarious Garbo impersonation in this cute comedy. She plays a poor woman who impersonates a European princess to get onto a cruise liner bound for America, where she plans to enjoy a successful career in films. She falls in love with the ship’s bandleader (), but things go haywire when a blackmailer on board threatens to tell people who she is. To make matters even worse, if they could be so, a murderer has stowed away on board and is piling up the bodies with the evidence pointing at our heroine. Now she and MacMurray have to team up to catch the murderer before the whole world finds out she’s a fraud. Bouncy fun, and with Lombard around the pleasure never stops!
