Vaudeville and comic sensation Joe E. Brown (Some Like it Hot) shows off his brilliant talents in Fit for a King, a classic romantic comedy. Utilizing superior timing, props, and acrobatics, Brown is nearly a one man show, but fortunately Fit for a King also boasts expert performances from leading lady Helen Mack and straight man Paul Kelly. Mack plays a princess that Brown meets while on assignment as a newspaper reporter. While they’re falling in love, Brown uncovers an assassination plot being planned. What follows is one of the most glorious and ridiculous chase scenes in Hollywood history, with Brown pulling off every stunt and prank to perfection. Fit for a King is what enjoying vintage comedy is all about: watching a master performer who has stood the test of time.
