One of stage actress Ina Claire's earliest forays into filmmaking was the 1915 5-reeler The Puppet Crown. Co-written by William C. DeMille, the story concerns Alexia (Claire), princess of the mythical kingdom of Olsa. Having read about the American style of romance, Alexia arrives in the U.S. hoping to be swept off her feet by a handsome "Yank." Here she meets Bob Carewe (Carlyle Blackwell), who though very handsome is nothing at all like the ravishing males whom she's familiar with from her bodice-ripping novels. Still, Bob proves to be Alexia's "Prince Charming" when he returns with her to Olsa and quells a revolution against the Crown.
