Her Grace Commands

Her Grace Commands (German: Ihre Hoheit befiehlt) is a 1931 German romantic comedy film directed by Hanns Schwarz and starring Käthe von Nagy, Willy Fritsch and Reinhold Schünzel. It is also translated into the alternative title Her Highness Commands. A hairdresser and a greengrocer fall in love, concealing from each other the truth that they are really a princess and an army officer in disguise.[1] It premiered in Mannheim on 3 March 1931, before being released at the Gloria-Palast in Berlin the next day.[2] A French-language version (Princess, At Your Orders!) was produced simultaneously, also directed by Schwarz but with a different cast. The film was remade in Hollywood as well, retitled Adorable, and released by the Fox Film Corporation in 1933.
