Smarty is a 1934 American Pre-Code comedy film, directed by Robert Florey, starring Warren William and Joan Blondell.

"Smarty" refers to Blondell's character, happily married but with a habit of provocative teasing. One evening her teasing leads to a slap on the face from her husband. For this she engages her husband's friend and attorney Vernon (Horton) to divorce him, marries Vernon, then begins to verbally tease him as well, wearing revealing clothes, and inviting her ex-husband over for dinner. In the UK the film was known as Hit Me Again.
