Pagliacci is a 1936 British musical film directed by Karl Grune and starring Richard Tauber, Steffi Duna and Diana Napier. It is an adaptation in English of the 1892 opera Pagliacci by Ruggiero Leoncavallo.
The film is shot partially in colour (using the UFAcolor process) and partially in black-and-white. The film's art direction was by Oscar Friedrich Werndorff. The film was made by the independent Trafalgar Films at Elstree Studios. The film was a very expensive production, with Tauber himself receiving £60,000 for appearing, which turned into a costly flop on its release.
