Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Adapted from a novel by Andre Maurois, Schule fuer Ehegluck (School for Connubial Bliss) concerns young marrieds Justus and Marianne Schneeman (Paul Hubschmid, Liselotte Pulver). Feeling that Marianne is insensitive to his ambitions, Justus finds a woman who does "understand" him. As he rises to success, his affection for the other woman increases while his marriage slowly crumbles. Eventually he realizes that Marianne was the right woman for him all along, but only after learning to tell the difference between true love and false flattery. Leading man Paul Hubschmid enjoyed a brief Hollywood career as Paul Christian, while Liselotte "Lilo" Pulver later played James Cagney's pneumatic German secretary in Billy Wilder's One, Two, Three (1961).
