The Devil Is a Woman effectively terminated von Sternberg's career as a filmmaker of the first rank. It inaugurated the growth of his legend. Fleming called in von Sternberg to direct the complicated conclusion, described by Michael Sragow as “a montage of Strauss's melodies winning the hearts of waltzers across the Continent and beyond as his sheet music pours off the presses.” According to Gravey and Dorothy Barrett, who plays a dancer from Spain in these scenes, von Sternberg did “all the montage shots and all the little intricate shots and trick shots.”
