The popularity of Hopes tale of intrigue was such that is spawned an entirely new genre known as the Ruritanian romance. When the King of Ruritania is kidnapped, the onus falls on a British tourist, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the King, to stand in for him and to avert disaster by coming to his rescue. The frequent replays of the film with Ronald Colman and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. testify to the continuing popularity of this evergreen adventure. Andrew Pugsleys reading captures the excitement and the momentum.
