The original title of this UFA production is Die Tolle Lola which, in most countries, was directly translated to The Fabulous Lola. Australia appears to be the exception where the original title’s rhyme is maintained, but the focus is Mazie and not her fun alter ego Lola. In fact it’s an unresolved poster design. The title text is jaunty and lighthearted but the main image appears sombre and reserved. You’re left wondering if the film is a comedy or a drama.

One of the three posters in the NFSA collection has been signed by artist Estelle Waterman.
