The Stolen Bride is a surviving[1] 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.[2]

Production[edit]

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.[3] 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.[4] It was released in Britain on May 28, 1928.[5] Korda's next film was the far more successful The Private Life of Helen of Troy.
