Hollywood Reporter and Variety report that. The life of the princess was filmed in the 1950s under the title Sissi (for the occasion with two SSs) sugar-sweet in Austria, with the young German Romy Schneider in the lead. The trilogy became a huge hit and is still being broadcast by TV stations in different countries, especially around Christmas. Amy Jenkins is going to edit the series of books on Elisabeth by the American author Allison Pataki, who in recent years has shown The Accidental Empress and Sisi, Empress on Her Own. Picture Perfect Federation will produce the series and try to sell worldwide. The life of the empress was also once the subject of a musical, which was also put on stage in the Netherlands. German-Austrian historian and journalist Brigitte Hamann published a serious and very detailed biography in 1981: Elisabeth; Kaiserin wider Want.
