The Villain Still Pursued Her is a 1940 film starring Billy Gilbert and Buster Keaton. It was a parody of old stage melodramas, but based primarily on The Drunkard, a 19th-century prohibitionist play by William H. Smith of Boston. That play had also been lampooned in other productions, most notably in the 1934 W. C. Fields comedy The Old Fashioned Way.
