Caravan is a 1934 American musical film released by Fox Film Corporation, directed by Erik Charell, and starring Charles Boyer, Loretta Young, Phillips Holmes and Jean Parker. Fox also produced a French language version of this film, Caravane (1934) starring Boyer, Annabella, and Conchita Montenegro, with Lou Tellegen in a small role.


The young Countess Wilma (Young) is forced to wed by midnight or lose her inheritance. Wilma impulsively chooses gypsy vagabond Latzi (Boyer), offering him a huge sum of money if he'll consent. Swallowing his pride, Latzi agrees to the marriage, but soon Wilma falls in love with the young Lieutenant Von Tokay (Holmes) who is himself in love with Latzi's gypsy sweetheart Timka (Parker).
