With his secret research, the Swedish physicist Professor Johanson, head of the Nuclear Physics Institute, has succeeded in obtaining bundled energy from nuclear fusion. This formula could revolutionize the world, with it enormous amounts of energy could be released. Sweden's secret service sends its top agent Peter Lundström to shadow the scientist and possibly protect him from kidnappers. Lundstrom follows Johanson's heels and meets his attractive, blonde daughter Karin, who works as her father's assistant. After the effectiveness of Johanson's method can be proven for the first time in an explosion and Johanson has to be transferred to the hospital injured as a result of the widespread destruction, a group of sinister, international profiteers and conspirators to develop a keen interest in this invention. Professor Johanson is in grave danger.

Karin is now continuing her father's research and is also caught in the cross hairs of the mysterious opponents. Johanson himself retreats to a Cambodian monastery in order to escape the gangsters' shots and recover. Meanwhile, the international criminals manage to steal Johanson's energy formula. Karin then goes after the thieves, supported by Lundstrom. But he also has his own goals. The hunt takes them around the world. It soon turns out that a certain Madame Latour is behind the sinister machinations. Eventually old Johanson falls into her hands. In Southeast Asia, a showdown ensues between the kidnappers and Lundstrom and Karin. ( from German Wiki - Herrin der Welt )



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]


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]


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