Victoria and Her Hussar (German: Viktoria und ihr Husar) is a 1931 German musical film directed by Richard Oswald and starring Michael Bohnen, Friedel Schuster and Iván Petrovich.[1] It is an Operetta film based on the operetta Viktoria und ihr Husar by Paul Abraham which was itself inspired by a work by Emric Földes. Two later film versions of the operetta were made in 1954 and 1982.

The film's sets were designed by the art director Franz Schroedter.


A Hungarian Countess believes that her husband, a hussar officer in the Austro-Hungarian army, has been killed in the First World War. She becomes engaged to an American diplomat, only for her first husband to turn up still alive.
