- Bette Davis, Juarez, 1938. Or Maximilian and Carlotta before Davis was suspended by Warners and the project was retooled, putting Paul Muni front and centre as the titular Mexican revolutionary leader kicking the French out of his country. Brian Aherne was the Emperor Maximilian, Page tested as Carlotta, which brought Davis back in as the unstable empress,. A similar Mexico film, Juarez and Maximilian, was shooting around the same time. Warner Bros quicky bought it (why else was it made!) and released it much later with a title Bette Davis would have relished. The Mad Empress.
