The Oyster Princess 1919


Spoiled Ossi Quaker (Ossi Oswalda) is daughter to millionaire Mr. Quaker (Victor Janson) and heiress to his oyster fortune. But she wants more — namely, a husband who is a real-life prince. Eager to please her, Mr. Quaker sends for royalty in the form of Prince Nucki (Harry Liedtke). Nucki is wary, though, so he makes his friend Josef (Julius Falkenstein) visit the Quakers’ to check things out. But Josef has his own plans, and he decides to introduce himself as Prince Nucki.
