Lola Montès 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

Nice special effects but sort of painful about her humiliation and her painful childhood. It is lavish.

This film is an excellent visual presentation of a well remembered movie with a magical name. It presents mainly the courtesan part of the colorful life of Lola Montes. At times the continuity of the movie is somewhat disrupted giving the impression of editing. Martine Carol appears more as a decoration than as a primary actress. Expected dancing scenes are visible only for a few seconds. This nostalgic slow film is not quite comparable with modern movies on similar subjects and could be enjoyed with good company and an equally good wine.
