Happy Ever After is a 1932 British-German musical film directed by Paul Martin and Robert Stevenson, and starring Lilian Harvey, Jack Hulbert, Cicely Courtneidge, Sonnie Hale, and Edward Chapman.

It was made as a co-production between the London-based Gainsborough Pictures and Germany's UFA. It was one of a series of co-productions between Gainsborough and German firms during the era, but it failed to meet the requirements to qualify as a British quota film.

A German-language version A Blonde Dream and a French-language version (Un rêve blond) were filmed at the same time. The film was shot in Berlin using principally British actors.[1] The film's sets were designed by the art director Erich Kettelhut.

Synopsis[edit]

A young woman who dreams of going to Hollywood and becoming a star, meets and falls in love with two window cleaners.[2]
