    Very entertaining film. Miss de Havilland is lovely, and Robert Cummings is as amazing as he is an underrated actor. Jane Wyman and Jack Carson are wonderful, too, as a very convincing young couple who are friends to the two main stars. The always good Charles Coburn pulls a surprising turn near the end, going from controlling uncle to menacing bad guy! Quite chilling to watch, actually, as I haven't seen him play a nasty before. Watch for Harry Davenport as a judge (he plays those a lot, doesn't he?) 4/5

    Amusing classic, it's nothing outstanding, but it is a sweet and entertaining story. Olivia de Havilland is good, but Robert Cummings just doesn't have a strong enough presence to pull off the his role. Fine score. Good support from Charles Coburn.

    The film doesn't try to be amusing or clever, but instead deftly combines funny situations with a sort of real-life seriousness. A viewer does get the impression that this is how a princess (Olivia De Havilland) would act if faced with the predicament of falling for a commoner in another country. The film has a calmness and dignity to it, probably aided by De Havilland's persona. Bob Cummings as the leading man is both romantic and comic. The casting seems perfect, and it's interesting that Alexis Smith and Fred MacMurray could've played the roles instead...it would not have been the film we see now. Its strongest asset, though, is the writing. The basic premise seems to cover all sorts of angles and suggests that love and politics intersect but do not necessarily mix. The scenes move forward with ease, and a highlight is the friendship of De Havilland and Jane Wyman as a supporting character. Also, when viewing the scenes that take place at the White House, I kept thinking of photographs I had seen of Olivia DeHavilland with President Bush some sixty years later.

    This little-known gem is simply delightful. Sure, it's a B movie, sure Olivia de Havilland was fighting the studio when she made it, but she glows in spite of herself. Fala, FDR's dog stars as himself. (He's even shown "spying" on White House Guests, something the wee dog actually did!) The Princess O'Rourke is a welcome distraction from the trend of realistic dramas that came out during and after WW II. Who could ask for more? The only downside to this movie is that FDR is shown to be able-bodied. At that time, the press, studios, and everybody else colluded with FDR to deny and shield his disability. As far as most of America was concerned, he was a "recovered polio." In spite of being confined to a wheelchair when out of camera-shot, FDR Passed as able-bodied and did it splendidly. Looking at the depiction of FDR through the eyes of a modern Disabled person, it's sort of sad that "our" President was only truly one of us after his death.

    I think Olivia de Havilland is wonderful in this movie! She makes being a princess seem so real. I also think Robert Cummings did a great job. If anyone likes a good princess chick flick,"Princess O'Rourke" is a great one to watch! By the way, I'm only 18 and I love old movies.The acting back then was far better than nowdays.This is a great family movie! Thank you so much for airing it! Thanks!!!!!!!!!!! Please put more on like this one!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Great Movie

    This movie has all the greats in it which makes for a darn good comedy, mixed with a little drama. Charles Coburn, Robert Cummings, Jack Carson, Jane Wyman, Olivia de Havilland... what more could you ask for? Maybe the same movie drawn out for another hour!!!!
