Trivia

Max Ophüls' final film, and his only film in color.
Famed film critic Andrew Sarris wrote "Lola Montès (1955) is in my unhumble opinion the greatest film of all time". He introduced the restoration at the New York Film Festival in 2008. He later decided that the greatest film of all time is The Earrings of Madame de... (1953), by the same director Max Ophüls'.
