Italiano: La zarina (Forbidden Paradise) è un film muto del 1924 diretto da Ernst Lubitsch. La zarina Caterina, protagonista della storia, vive in una corte di fantasia di un paese slavo che "chiaramente allude alla Russia di Caterina II, (non senza singolari anacronismi: i capelli alla garçonne, i libretti di assegni, le automobili) e diviene una trasparente metafora del cinema o meglio, dei reami di cartapesta del mondo hollywoodiano".
