Hot Pepper (1933) is an American Pre-Code comedy film starring Lupe Vélez, Edmund Lowe, and Victor McLaglen, directed by John G. Blystone and released by Fox Film Corporation. The film appeared before the enforcement of the Production Code.
This film is considered an installment in the series of films dating back to the silent film What Price Glory? (1926), starring Lowe and McLaglen in their characters of Sergeant Harry Quirt and Captain Jim Flagg with Dolores Del Rio as the female costar. The pair made a sequel to that film called The Cock-Eyed World (1929), costarring Lili Damita. Two other films followed before Hot Pepper.
