The failure of The Scarlet Empress was as damaging to von Sternberg's career as had been the shelving of A Woman of the Sea. This, combined with his growing estrangement from Dietrich, further eroded his reputation at Paramount. Although he and Lubitsch remained superficially friendly and sometimes played chess at the Hollywood Club on Cherokee Avenue, Lubitsch, in his role as an executive, was a different man. There remained one last film on von Sternberg's contract and thus one chance to redeem himself.

Keywords:   Dietrich, reputation, Cherokee, Paramount, Lubitsch
