Quick Overview

Starring Grace Moore, Franchot Tone, Walter Connolly, Raymond Walburn, Elisabeth Risdon,

Nana Bryant, Victor Jory, Frieda Inescort, Thurston Hall, Herman Bing

Directed by Josef von Sternburg



Print: black/white

Runtime: 85 min.

Genre: musical



Josef Von Sternberg, past directorial master of movie exotica, came down to earth with The

King Steps Out, a major studio musical. Set in 19th century Vienna, the plot concerns a

sprightly young lady (opera star Grace Moore) who wishes to rescue her sister from

marrying their cousin, the "wicked" Emperor Franz Josef (Franchot Tone). Disguised as a

dressmaker, the girl instantly falls in love with the young monarch herself, and sings her

way into his heart. The film is a compendium of every mittel-European operetta ever made,

right down to the supporting appearance of Hermann Bing as an innkeeper named

Pretzelberger. The King Steps Out was adapted from the Fritz Kreisler stage musical Cissy.
