The Princess and the Butler

Lord Elgin, Governor of the Coconut Islands for the Crown, and his man Bembridge have finished their ten year term and are headed back to Merry Olde England with their stuffed wild animal trophies and happy memories of the South Sea Islands. Unknown to the Earl and his butler, the daughter of the Island King has stowed away in a crate, because the Island Princess is madly in love with Bembridge, the Earl's butler. The Earl's sister and grandson back at the Earl's mansion are both very stiff upper lip, upper crust types that speak with the unmistakable British accent that only the very, very proper upper crust gentry ever use . . . you know, the head tilted upward a bit as they speak without ever moving their lips . . . and if it should suddenly rain they might be in danger of drowning from raindrops falling up the nose . . . Anyway, the uninhibited Island Princess is quite a shock for the proper British household, and there will be much mayhem at the Earl's ahead. I won't even tell you what chaos ensues when Lapis the Island Princess undresses for dinner with the Bishop and the General. It is during this dinner when they learn that the King of the Coconut Islands has accused Britain of kidnapping his daughter and the Foreign Office is in an absolute tither as the Islanders prepare to go to war with Britain. The next day the Earl is ordered to keep Princess Lapis hidden from sight until they can deal with the King, but a snoopy reporter is already in the house. What more could go wrong for the Earl and his butler? Maybe Princess Lapis will prepare a special Island Love Potent and put it in the brandy that she hopes her lover the butler will drink . . . But the butler will suddenly choose not to have a snoot full of the doctored Brandy, and decide instead to serve it to the rest of the household, bringing total mayhem to the mansion as they fall under the spell of the love potent . . . just as the local policeman shows up. Yes, the gentile and refined home of the Earl may never be the same . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
