In the original story by Guy de Maupassant, Elizabeth is a prostitute, not a "laundress", and the dinner with Lt. von Eyrick (Fifi) is another type of encounter altogether. These changes had to be made because of the Hayes Code in force at the time. See more »
Kurt Kreuger plays the "title" role in "Mademoiselle Fifi"?
The film,"Mademoiselle Fifi" is a combination of two of Guy de Maupassant's patriotic stories: "Boule de Suif," the story of a patriotic French girl whose love for her country is misunderstood by those with whom she comes in contact; and "Mademoiselle Fifi,", a tale of a sadistic Prussian officer intent on breaking the will of conquered France, who has been nicknamed "Mademoiselle Fifi" by his comrades because of his constant use of the phrase "Fi fi done." The action takes place during the last part of the Franco-Prussian Way, the locale being occupied France from the city of Rouen, headquarters of the German Third Army, to a little village near the unoccupied territory.
