Bluebeard's 8th Wife (alternately Bluebeard's Eighth Wife) is a lost[1] 1923 American silent romantic comedy film produced by Famous Players-Lasky and distributed by Paramount Pictures. It was directed by Sam Wood and stars Gloria Swanson. The film is based on the French play La huitième femme de Barbe-Bleue by Alfred Savoir which is based on the Bluebeard tales of the 15th century.[2] The play ran on Broadway in 1921 starring Ina Claire in the Swanson role.[3]

Paramount remade the story in 1938 directed by Ernst Lubitsch and starring Gary Cooper and Claudette Colbert.[4]
