Storyline

Ilona, a beautiful Hungarian woman, is the neglected wife of Stephan Paulus, a scientist who is more interested in the fishes he studies than in his better half. Tibor Varny, a handsome - and famous - airplane pilot, starts courting her. Ilona does not say no but Tibor suddenly steps back. For a simple reason: the flyer has just realized that Ilona is the wife of... his best friend! In frustration, Ilona turns to Trill, a tenor showing off to his best advantage...

Der Blaufuchs is a somewhat unusual German film comedy of the 40s insofar that the flirtatious and slightly frivolous heroine who is about to run out of her - admittedly boring - marriage is neither punished by fate, nor finds her way back to the straight and narrow. So the viewers at that time were either mildly delighted or incensed, depending on their degree of hedonistic inclinations, and a keen interest in the movie was immediately established. What contributed further to its success, as with other Zarah Leander movies, was her songs, which became instant hits, and which make this film bearable to this day.
