Dr. Monica is a 1934 American pre-Code romantic melodrama film starring Kay Francis, Warren William and Jean Muir. An obstetrician who is unable to have children discovers that the baby she is about to deliver was fathered by her husband.



Mordaunt Hall, critic for The New York Times, wrote that Dr. Monica is "not especially suspenseful", but it "moves apace and the acting is excellent."[2]
