The Golden Butterfly (Der goldene Schmetterling)


Austria. With Lili Damita. French model and revue dancer Lili Damita, then the wife of director Michael Curtiz, stars as a performer, portrayed as a moth drawn to the glitter of the stage only to be burned. This spectacular European coproduction showcases the high glamour of metropolitan nightlife and dramatizes the familiar Jazz Age conflict between female independence and morality.
