In a mythical kingdom, a rugged soldier-of-fortune, Michael Donovan (Victor McLaglen), is hired to kidnap King Peter II (Freddie Bartholomew), the boy king, so that a new political party can take control of the country. The young king is in favor of the scheme because it will allow him to get away and have fun. His whereabouts are discovered and Donovan and his accomplice, George Foster (Michael Whalen), are thrown into prison. They break out when they realize the King's life is in danger and the political party wishing to gain control is evil.Written by

Former real-life mercenary Victor McLaglen plays a professional soldier who is hired to kidnap a king, but he gets much more than he bargained for in Freddie Bartholomew. This isn't meant to be a heavyweight film, but it is humorous and sweet and the two main characters are truly enjoyable. I can't wait till I find a copy of my own.
