The Kiss Before the Mirror is a 1933 American pre-Code mystery film adapted from the play by Ladislas Fodor. It was directed by James Whale and stars Nancy Carroll, Frank Morgan, Paul Lukas and Gloria Stuart.


A lawyer (Morgan) fears his own wife (Carroll) might be having an affair while he defends a cuckolded wife-killer.



The film was remade by Whale five years later as Wives Under Suspicion, starring Warren William and Gail Patrick.
