Madame X is a 1937 American drama film, a sanitized remake of several Pre-Code films of the same name.[1][2] It was directed by Sam Wood with additional direction by Gustav Machatý (uncredited). The film is based on the 1908 play by French playwright Alexandre Bisson (1848-1912).


A woman who cheated on her loving husband is thrown out of her home by said husband. Twenty years later, she finds herself accused of murder for saving her son, who does not know who she is as he was raised without her. He finds himself defending her without knowing her background.
