Circus Maximillian

A courtesan's paid to look back
On amours she has laid in the sack
This circus-like show
Goes in circles of woe
Before it all fades back to black.

Director Max Ophüls is the ringmaster of his final film, Lola Montès (1955); Martine Carol stars as Lola. Thanks to The Late Show: The Late Films Blogathon host David Cairns, and his high-wire act at Shadowplay.
