Leaving the man who loves her, the beautiful Elly accepts the marriage proposal of a Maharajah and follows him to India. But soon, she wants to run away from the harem...
 
« The Maharajah's Favourite Wife became a crash box-office hit wherever it was distributed, and while the harem scenes probably didn't hurt, the main attraction was beyond any doubt the fairytale plot: Elly, a rather ordinary European girl, wins the true love of a fabulously rich, handsome Indian prince. Within the patriarchal order of his male privileges (the harem), she rises to a position deemed privileged by the logic of the film's happy ending. » (Mariann Lewinsky)
 
>  Introduction to the film and book presentation (in English) by Andrea Haller, film historian and author of the book « Eine Episode aus unserem Dasein. Frühes Kino in Deutschland - Programmgestaltung und weibliches Publikum » (Filmgeschichte International. Schriftenreihe der Cinémathèque de la Ville de Luxembourg, 2016).
