Stips is a 1951 West German romantic comedy film directed by Carl Froelich and starring Gustav Fröhlich, Heli Finkenzeller and Eva Ingeborg Scholz.[1] It was shot at the Tempelhof Studios in West Berlin. The film's sets were designed by the art director Hans Luigi.


Doctor Dirkhoff, nicknamed Stips, was a popular but unconventional art teacher at a local school. Many of the girls in his classes had romantic crushes on him. WHen he returns to the town nearly a decade, now a widower, most of his former students are now happily married but his return reawakens their old desire for him.
