The Gallant Hussar (German: Der fesche Husar) is a 1928 German-British romance film directed by Géza von Bolváry and starring Ivor Novello, Evelyn Holt, and Paul Hörbiger.[2] It was based on a story by the Hungarian writer Arthur Bárdos and Margarete-Maria Langen.

The film was a co-production made under an agreement between Gainsborough Pictures and the German studio Felsom-Film and was shot in Berlin. After the passage of the Cinematograph Films Act 1927 by the British Parliament it was classified under the terms of the Act as a foreign film and only received a limited release in Britain.[3] It is also known under the alternative title The Bold Dragoon. It is now considered a lost film.[4]

Along with A South Sea Bubble (1928), the film marked a significant change in the role played by Novello. He had previously appeared as unsettled, outsider figures in films such as The Lodger, but from now on played more well-balanced romantic figures.[5]


The daughter of an American millionaire falls in love with a Hungarian hussar officer during a visit to the Austrian Empire.
