 VH1.com : Movies : The Prince and the Showgirl : Plot
The title of the Anglo-American The Prince and the Showgirl could well have alluded to the genuine stations in life of stars Sir Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe.
She, however, has fallen in love with the prince, and sticks around long enough to upset a plan to overthrow the Carpathian throne, and to patch up a feud between Charles and his son Nicholas (Jeremy Spencer).
Olivier directed as well as starred in The Prince and the Showgirl; he knew he had his work cut out for him in dealing with the mercurial Marilyn Monroe, but he managed to hold his temper and to extract a delightful comic performance from the actress.

 DVD Savant Review: The Prince and the Showgirl
The resourceful showgirl (she stays several days in the same dress, it seems) does understand German, however, which gives her an essential, if inadvertent role to play in the avoidance of a World War, the reconciliation of a royal family, and the softening of the Regent's chilly heart.
The Prince and the Showgirl reinforces the old adage that whenever Marilyn appears on screen, other actors cease to exist.
The usual gossip about The Prince and the Showgirl is that Laurence and Marilyn didn't get along, she was intolerably late, etc. - the same old stories.

 The Prince and the Showgirl (1957)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
'The Prince and the Showgirl' is another comedy that looks back to the pre-1914 era as a lost golden age.
It centers upon Grand Duke Charles, the Prince Regent of the Balkan state of Carpathia, who, while in London for the coronation of King George V, meets, and has a brief romance with, Elsie Marina, an American-born showgirl working in a London music-hall.
Their association is encouraged by officials of the British Foreign Office, who are seeking to encourage the pro-British policies of the Carpathian government and to prevent a shift towards a pro-German stance which could threaten the peace of Europe.

 The Prince and the Showgirl Film Review - Time Out Film
A rather condescending vehicle for Monroe, who had demonstrated astonishing range and skill the previous year in Bus Stop, with Olivier's leaden direction constantly conveying the impression that real actors are graciously propping up the pretty novice.
Few sparks fly, but Olivier's Teutonically humourless Regent of Carpathia - in Britain for the 1911 coronation of George V - is nicely played off against Marilyn's innocently saucy showgirl.

Still, there are more than enough joys to be found in Showgirl, starting with the showgirl herself.
It's possible that Monroe may never have been more attractive than she is here; she glows, shimmers, and radiates practically every moment that she's onscreen.
Showgirl is ultimately a trifle, but a very tasty one.

It seems a bit weird today to contemplate their pairing in The Prince And The Showgirl, and that was certainly the initial thoughts regarding the casting of the film.
The Prince is of course to attend the coronation as a representative of his adopted country, along with the Queen Dowager (Sybil Thorndike), but whilst there are official duties to attend to there are also pleasures to be indulged.
One of those is attending a performance of The Coconut Girl, where the Prince is introduced to the cast backstage.

THE PRINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL is notable for featuring the once-in-a-lifetime pairing of Laurence Olivier with Marilyn Monroe.
The Prince and the Showgirl was the second of two films which were designed to prove Monroe was a "real" actress and not just a light comedienne (the first was 1956's "Bus Stop").
While "Prince and the Showgirl" was not a success, it does prove Monroe's range and acting abilities were greater than anyone probably suspected.

She acquired the rights to Terence Rattigan's hit London play, The Sleeping Prince, a comedy about a Balkan prince in London in 1911 for the coronation of King George V, and an American showgirl he sets out to seduce.
Olivier and his wife Vivien Leigh had played the prince and the showgirl in Rattigan's play on the London stage.
So Monroe set out to figuratively "seduce" Olivier into co-starring and directing the film, which would be re-titled The Prince and the Showgirl (1957).

By combining the light comic skills of Monroe and the grand acting ability of Olivier, THE PRINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL manages to succeed not only as pleasant entertainment but also as a wonderful mixture of two very different screen personalities.
Monroe--in this, her 25th picture--had turned 30 and was as beautiful as ever, delivering a comic performance which is among her very finest.
Olivier had already familiarized himself with the role on the British stage in the Rattigan play "The Sleeping Prince," which costarred his miscast wife, Vivien Leigh.

When a dazzling American showgirl captures the monocled eye of an imperious European monarch, it's clear proof opposites attract.
He's Prince Regent of Carpathia, an arrogant stuffed shirt visiting London for the 1911 coronation of King George V. She's Elsie Marina of Milwaukee, short on social graces but long on common sense, in London as a third-from-the-left Gaiety Girl.
With Olivier's style, Monroe's radiance and the wit of Terrence Rattigan's script (adapting his play The Sleeping Prince), your heart and funnybone truly receive the royal treatment.
