Jealousy is a 1929 American drama film directed by Jean de Limur and released by Paramount Pictures. It is based on the French play Monsieur Lambertheir, by Louis Verneuil. The play was translated by Eugene Walter and ran on Broadway under the title Jealousy in 1928.[1] The film version starred Jeanne Eagels and Fredric March, and is the second sound film and final motion picture featuring Eagels.

The film was initially shot with British actor Anthony Bushell as Pierre, but he was replaced by March at Eagels's insistence.[2] Supporting actress Hilda Moore died before Jealousy was released while the film's star, Jeanne Eagels, died of an overdose of chloral hydrate one month after the film was released.[3]
