Mistress of the World (German: Die Herrin der Welt, French: Les mystères d'Angkor, Italian: Il mistero dei tre continenti) is a 1960 science-fiction spy film remake of the 1919 eight-part silent film The Mistress of the World directed by William Dieterle and starring Martha Hyer and Carlos Thompson.[3] It marked the comeback in his native country of the director William Dieterle after several decades spent in Hollywood.[4] In West Germany, it was released in a longer version split in two parts (Die Herrin der Welt - Teil I and Die Herrin der Welt - Teil II).[4]

Plot

Cast

Production

Mistress of the World was developed when producer Artur Brauner invested in a three-hour West German-French-Italian co-production.[5] Brauner contracted William Dieterle to direct the film.[5] The film was made with a predominantly German crew, but with a multi-national cast including Martha Hyer and Sabu from Hollywood, Carlos Thompson from Argentina and Gino Cervi from Italy, and Micheline Presle and Lino Ventura from France.[5]

The film was shot between September 1959 and January 1960.[6] The film shot around the world, including Macau, Angkor, Nice, Hong Kong, Naples, Nepal, Sweden, Bangkok, and the Spandau Studios in Berlin.[6] While filming in Indochina, Dieterle left the production, leaving cinematographer Richard Angst to take over directing.[5]

Release

The first part of Mistress of the World was released in Hamburg on April 14, 1960.[7] The second part was released on April 26, 1960.[8]

Reception

The film was not received well by critics in West Germany on its release.[5]
