Marilyn Monroe stars with Academy Award winner Sir Lawrence Olivier in this romance between an American chorus girl and a European prince set in London during the coronation of King George V in The Prince and the Showgirl. On stage in London's West End, American chorus girl Elsie Marina (Monroe) catches the eye of Charles, Prince Regent of Carpathia (Olivier). The prince invites the bubbly showgirl to his hotel suite for an intimate dinner, where she successfully wards off his less-than-honorable advances, drinks too much champagne and thwarts the prince's plot to overthrow the rightful King of Carpathia. Nominated for four BAFTA awards. Based on the play The Sleeping Prince by Terence Rattigan.
