"The Prisoner of Zenda" is a drama, adventure, romance and a swashbuckler.

On the eve of his coronation the king of Ruritania is drugged by his evil conspiring half-brother, who wishes the throne for himself.  By a trick of circumstance at this time a king's cousin is on a visit from England.  This distant relative happens to look very much like the incapacitated king, and is called upon to fill in for him during the ceremony.  Now the evil brother has a problem: he has to eliminate not one, but two rivals for the throne.

The love woes of two good-looking women, the intrigues and the sword fights provide abundant drama and entertainment.

Lewis Stone plays two roles in the film - the king and the visiting cousin.

Snitz Edwards plays Josef the butler, who gives his life protecting his beloved king.
