Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Heike Makatsch originally had to back out of the project due to her pregnancy in 2006. But, pre-production was then delayed and she was eventually able to take the lead part. See more »
Goofs The scene where Hilde is entering the "Selznick International Pictures" is set in 1948 and the "Hollywood"-sign is visible in the background. In 1948 the sign should have said "Hollywoodland". The "LAND"-part has been deleted in 1949. See more »
