What's the name of the how-to-train-your man classic movie?

What's the name of the old movie where the female lead uses a dog training book to train her man?

My mother has gone on about this movie for years. Every Christmas, I google and can't find it. I've accused her of making it up. She insists she hasn't.

She says there is a 50s or 60s movie where the female lead is having difficulty with her man and she gets a hold of a how-to-train-your-dog book. She applies the tips and tricks therein to train her man, with successful results.

What's the name of this movie? Does anyone have any recollection of it even existing (other than my crazy mother)?

I haven't heard of this, but I'll post your question (sans your username or reference to MeFi) at a Femdom forum. I bet they'll know.

Double. Flagged. (just kidding)

It's just strange to have two questions about the same obscure movie in less than a month. I think I'll have to see the film now; I'm sure it will be the answer to other questions real soon now.

Wow. Very strange. I did search the old posts, but apparently my mother latched onto the first "trick" and the other poster the second.

At least I've got her birthday present sorted out.

Thank you all~

I have seen the movie about three times when I was younger, I came across this thread looking for the movie, I would love to own it.
I hope someone can find the name. I thought that "How to train your man" was the name but I can not find a movie listed under that name. The movie is a good one and worth seeing.
