Riptide (1934) is a drama starring Norma Shearer, written and directed by Edmund Goulding, and released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

The film is an example of a Pre-code film, and was released a few months before the Production Code was enforced. This film had a noteworthy appearance by Mrs. Patrick Campbell, a famous stage actress known for her friendship and correspondence with playwright George Bernard Shaw and her creation of Eliza Doolittle in Shaw's play Pygmalion.[1][2]
