English trout fisher Rudolf Rassendyll is about the only tourist not coming for the coronation of Central-European King Rudolf V at Strelsau, but happens to be a distant relative and is approached on account of their canning resemblance to stand in for the drunken king, in order to prevent his envious half-brother Michael, who arranged spiking his wine to seize the throne when the reputedly less then dutiful Rudolf stays away. The ceremony goes well, and he gets acquainted with the charming royal bride, related princess Flavia, but afterward the king is found to be abducted; he must continue the charade and once the hiding place, the castle of Zenda, is found is involved in the fight between political parties for control over Rudolf V, his throne and his bride, for which a formidable third candidate, Michael's disloyal co-conspirator Rupert of Hentzau, was waiting in the curtains.

Each recognizes the other to be a jewel thief, and wordlessly they team together to steal a $30,000 diamond. Searched and questioned when the gem is missed, they are released....with the gem. Detective Sharpe (Larry Blake) is still suspicious and so is the head of Jeweler's Indemnity, who puts two underworld men on to retrieve the diamond. Kendal agrees to meet the two but the police are tipped and Sharpe confiscates the gem and the fence's money. Again Kendal and Joan are released, but each suspects the other of being an informer despite a growing romantic attachment. Kendal and Joan attend an exhibition of the Malabar diamonds, leave to follow a diamond-lade guest, overtake her car, shoot the chauffeur and slug the woman. At Kendal's apartment, Joan makes it clear that robbery, not murder, is her game. Two men and the robbed couple arrive and reveal the whole thing to be a hoax to test whether Joan will work with the gang and to assure them she wasn't the informer in the first theft.

Rita was the fiancée of Forsythe and Dolphin is in love with her. The trial begins the next day, with Shayne back in the jury box, after giving the information he picked up to defense counsel John Logan (Richard Derr).
