Unholy Love (released in the United Kingdom as Deceit) is a 1932 black-and-white drama film directed and produced by Albert Ray. It was the first film adaptation of the French novel Madame Bovary produced.
The film was quickly forgotten, however, because more successful film adaptations of Madame Bovary were produced thereafter, such as Jean Renoir's 1934 version and Vincente Minnelli's 1949 version. For the 1932 film, Ray renamed all the characters and moved the location of the story to Rye, New York.
