Ways to a Good Marriage (German: Wege zur guten Ehe) is a 1933 German drama film directed by Adolf Trotz and starring Olga Tschechowa, Alfred Abel and Hilde Hildebrand.[1] [2] It was shot at the EFA Studios in Halensee in Berlin. The film's sets were designed by the art directors Heinz Fenchel and Botho Hoefer.[3] The film was based on the ideas of the sexologist Theodore H. Van de Velde and was in the tradition of the enlightenment films of the Weimar Republic. Although his work had already been forbidden by the new Nazi regime, it was not formally banned until 1937 despite protests by Nazi students in Kiel who were successful in having the film pulled from cinemas there.[4]

A separate French-language version L'amour qu'il faut aux femmes was released in 1934 and was also directed by Trotz although featured a different cast except for Olga Tschechowa.
