I saw this film when I was 10yrs old, just before WWII. Even as a child I thought La Jana was the most beautiful human being that I ever had seen. I would love to see this film again, but I don't know how or where to find it. Any help will be most appreciated. I remember how terribly sad I and many relatives were when the death of La Jana was announced in late 1940. I recently read that La Jana was selected for the part of LolaLola in Blau Engel but that Sternberg's wife who was a friend of Dietrich managed to give the part to Dietrich, thus changing cinematic history. In retrospect it seems that Dietrich rather than the imperious La Jana was a better choice for the part, even at the expense of beauty.
