Madame Wants No Children (German: Madame wünscht keine Kinder) is a 1926 German silent drama film directed by Alexander Korda and starring María Corda, Harry Liedtke and Maria Paudler. It is based on the novel Madame ne veut pas d'enfants by the French writer Clément Vautel. The film was made for the American Fox Film Corporation's German subsidiary. The film was shot at Tempelhof Studios in late 1926. It was the last European film Korda made until 1930 as he left for the United States shortly after its production (although an earlier film, A Modern Dubarry, premiered later).[1]
