Facts about

Marlene Dietrich turned down the rule of Raina Arkadin.
All of Paola Mori's dialogue was dubbed by Billie Whitelaw.
Until recently, the version in possession of Corinth Films was generally regarded closest to Orson Welles's cut. In April of 2006, the Criterion Collection released a comprehensive three-DVD set of the film, featuring three versions: the "Corinth" version, "Confidential Report" (the European cut), and the newly edited "Comprehensive" version.
