Plot Summary
The kingdom of Marshovia is so small that one of its richest citizens, Madame Sonia (Jeanette MacDonald), is responsible for paying more than half of its taxes. Understandably, when she runs away to Paris and takes her money with her, it means disaster for the tiny country. In order to prevent a government collapse, King Achmet (George Barbier) dispatches dashing Count Danilo (Maurice Chevalier) to win back Sonia's allegiance and restore the nation to prosperity.
