The Stolen Bride is a surviving 1927 American silent drama film directed by Alexander Korda and starring Billie Dove, Lloyd Hughes, and Armand Kaliz. The film is a Hungarian-set romance across classes, where an aristocrat and a peasant fall in love.
The production was Korda's first Hollywood film after moving to America from Berlin where he had previously been working. Korda was assigned the film in large part because he was a native of Hungary, where the film's action is set. It was shot at the Burbank Studios of First National Pictures during the summer of 1927. It was a moderate success once it was released in August 1927. It was released in Britain on May 28, 1928. Korda's next film was the far more successful The Private Life of Helen of Troy.
