The Battle of Hearts is a 1916 American silent drama film written and directed by Oscar Apfel, and produced and distributed by Fox Film Corporation. It starred William Farnum and Elda Furry (later known as Hedda Hopper). The story was by Frances Marion, then still an actress herself. This is Hopper's first motion picture.
Hopper screened small portions of it in 1942 in her self-produced short series Hedda Hopper's Hollywood. It is unknown if she had a complete print of this film at the time. These portions can be seen today in her 1942 short.
