Outcast is a 1937 American film directed by Robert Florey.

Warren William plays a Baltimore doctor accused of murder. Although acquitted, he becomes a pariah and his practice is ruined, so he transplants himself to a small Wisconsin town. Confiding with a sympathetic retired lawyer (Lewis Stone), the doctor just begins to build back his practice, his self-respect, and a relationship with a local girl (Karen Morley) when his past follow him in the form of the avenging sister of the murder victim.

Unusually for Florey, this was an independent production (Emanuel Cohen Productions, billed as "Major Pictures Corporation") released through Paramount.
