  • Trivia

    • The plot of a commoner impersonating a nobleman to whom he bears an uncanny resemblance was first popularized in Anothony Hope's novel "The Prisoner of Zenda". The novel was adapted into a celebrated movie in 1937 starring Ronald Colman as the identical king and commoner. Since Don Adams has said that his famous Maxwell Smart voice developed out of a Ronald Colman impression, a take-off of the movie must have seemed almost inevitable.
