Faithful is a 1936 British musical drama film, directed by Paul L. Stein and starring Jean Muir and Hans Söhnker.

The film was made by Warner Brothers at Teddington Studios as a quota quickie production, with an original screenplay by Brock Williams and music by Pierre Neuville. Faithful is now classed as a lost film.[1]

The plot deals with two pupils from a provincial music conservatory who elope, marry, and come to London to try their luck. The husband becomes a singer in a nightclub, and is soon targeted by a predatory socialite. They start an affair, the wife finds out about it and decides to leave her husband, until matters are smoothed over by a third-party who wishes the couple well.
