The Model Husband (German:Der Mustergatte) is a 1937 German comedy film directed by Wolfgang Liebeneiner and starring Heinz Rühmann, Leny Marenbach and Hans Söhnker. It is based on a 1915 American play Fair and Warmer by Avery Hopwood. The film was screened at the Venice Film Festival where it won an award. In the 1950s it was remade twice: a 1956 West German film The Model Husband and a 1959 Swiss The Model Husband.

Synopsis

A London banker makes a business trip to Venice where he falls in love with a woman who thinks her friend is cheating. They marry, but she soon gets bored because he's the "model husband" - the way she wished previously: he barely looks at other women - in turn no woman shows interest in him -- moral of the story: she said she wished for the model husband but unconsciously desires a Don Juan. Once he understands, he acts like one (a little) and she falls in love again.

The film was censored for youth by the Nazis.
