The Green Manuela (German: Die grüne Manuela) is a 1923 German silent drama film directed by Ewald André Dupont and starring Lucie Labass, Josef Winter and Grete Berger. The film is based on a novel by Clara Ratzka. A gypsy dancer becomes involved with some smugglers in Spain. The film's plot bears a number of similarities to Carmen.[1] It was the first time Dupont worked with the cinematographer Werner Brandes and the art director Alfred Junge who were to become important collaborators with him.[2]
