Love and Trumpets (German: Liebe und Trompetenblasen) is a 1954 West German musical comedy film directed by Helmut Weiss and starring Hans Holt, Nadja Tiller and Marianne Koch.[1] It was shot at the Bavaria Studios in Munich and on location around Sirmione on Lake Garda in Italy. The film's sets were designed by the art director Ludwig Reiber.


In a fictional European country just before the First World War, two womanising guards officers flirt endlessly with woman. However Peter von Salis goes to far and compromises a young noblewoman Bettina von Brixen and is forced by the king to marry her. Meanwhile his friend Nikolaus is involved with the free-spirited dancer Ninon.
