Trivia

Ufa Studios incorrectly announced Sigmund Freud's approval of the project, sparking rumors and stories from Vienna to New York. The New York Times reported on July 26, 1925 that "Psychoanalysis will be popularly explained through a screen filming which will be passed upon and partly directed by Professor Freud." Freud, so angered by the incorrect announcement, demanded retractions in several newspapers and publications, and even paid for a second notice to be printed in some. See more »
