King Victor, his Spanish wife Isabella and their 13-year-old daughter Louise live in a palace where a series of silly practical jokes have begun to disturb their royal piece of mind, but the jokes stop being mildly amusing when the king's look-alike cousin is murdered. Some strong language. Followed by "Skeleton-in-waiting". 1976.
