Lulu (also released in the UK as No Orchids for Lulu) is a 1962 Austrian crime drama film written and directed by Rolf Thiele. The film is an adaptation of Frank Wedekind's Lulu plays—Earth Spirit (Erdgeist, 1895) and Pandora's Box (Die Büchse der Pandora, 1904)—and stars Nadja Tiller (as Lulu), O. E. Hasse, and Hildegard Knef.
Sadoul's Dictionary of Films describes Thiele's work as "[a] heavy-handed, almost absurd version" of Wedekind's plays. But Robert von Dassanowsky credits Lulu as one of the "few notable [Austrian] dramas during the early 1960s".
