"[The film Madame DuBarry] tore down the American ban on German films, caused an international interest in German pictures that for a time threatened to overshadow Hollywood, and began the Hollywood phenomenon of importing overseas talent, beginning with director Ernst Lubitsch on December 24, 1921, and following up with Pola Negri on September 12, 1922. Only in France did this film do poorly, where its rewrite of French history was generally considered to be revisionist German propaganda."
"Pola Negri Filmography - German Silent Period (1917-1922)." The Pola Negri Appreciation Site. (accessed October 24, 2014).
