Other films based on the Bíró play
A Hungarian silent film was released in 1918.
In 1936, a trouble-plagued Paramount Pictures production began, with Marlene Dietrich and Charles Boyer in the lead roles, but Dietrich clashed repeatedly with director Henry Hathaway. Eventually, she dropped out. Filming later resumed with Margaret Sullavan, but she broke her arm, necessitating yet another cast change. Hotel Imperial was finally released in 1939 with Isa Miranda and Ray Milland.
