Madame DuBarry is a 1934 American historical film directed by William Dieterle and starring Dolores del Rio, Reginald Owen, Victor Jory and Osgood Perkins. The film portrays the life of Madame Du Barry, the last mistress of King Louis XV of France.[1] While this film does not serve accuracy to Madame Du Barry, it does features antiques and jewelry that came from the actually days when Madame Du Barry lived. This film was released just when the Hays Code was taking full swing and faced many problems with censors of the time. Scenes of this film had to be removed before its release or else it would have not been approved for release.

Cast[edit]

Even though the film was about a French courtesan, Madame Du Barry would be portrayed by Mexican born actress Dolores Del Rio.
