He asked to the beautiful Albanian princesses to be part of his a film related to Albanian Kingdom. He sent a formal request to Ambassador Faik Konica: "I want to discuss with the Royal Princesses and to take their expert advice on Royal Court procedures for the production of a film built around a small mythical Kingdom, but important. We would like to discuss and, if possible, princesses to be part of the film, such as portraying the royal hierarchy."

But this proposal was not implemented for various reasons. Not because of Fascist occupation, as Ben Andoni writes - seems that Andoni has not describe in a fair waw the New York Post article of March 14, 1938. Fascist occupation occurred on April 7, 1939.

Albanian Princess visit in US lasted several days.
