The "Mind the Paint" Girl is a four-act play by Arthur Pinero, first published in 1912.[1]

The play has a large cast of twenty eight named characters. The plot centres on a rising starlet who is discovered when a musical director overhears a workman yell, "Mind the paint, Girl." The play was written to incorporate a song written by Jerome Kern. It premiered at the Duke of York's Theatre, London, in February 1912.[2]

A film based on the play was made by director Wilfrid North in 1916 and in 1919, but both have been lost.
