On November 8, 1918, the UFA film studio held a special preview for the Berlin press. This occurred amid street battles between Spartacist strikers and government soldiers. Pola Negri
later recalled the chaos: "The studio orchestra played selections from 'Carmen' to get us in the mood. We sat down in the projection room, and the film began. I heard a faint sound in the distance . . . gunfire." As the gunfire became louder, director Ernst Lubitsch
urged the audience to remain calm and to finish viewing the film. By nightfall the strikers and the troops were engaged in close-quarters battle and all streets were closed. See more
