The Heart of Paula is a 1916 American silent film directed by Julia Crawford Ivers and William Desmond Taylor, starring Lenore Ulric. This film survives at the Library of Congress.[1][2]

As briefly-described in a 1916 publication, this five-reel film is a "story of romance and adventure in Mexico. Lenore Ulrich is the Spanish girl who loves an American engineer."[3]

Two endings were prepared for the film—one happy and one tragic.[4] This was a first, and critics were asked to vote for which ending they preferred, but the vote ended in a tie.[5]
