The Laughing Lady is a 1929 sound film melodrama directed by Victor Schertzinger, starring Ruth Chatterton and produced and released by Paramount Famous Lasky Corporation. It is based on a 1922 British play, The Laughing Lady, by Alfred Sutro. The play was brought to New York in 1923 and put on Broadway starring Ethel Barrymore.

A 1924 Paramount silent film retitled A Society Scandal starred Gloria Swanson. It is now lost.

In 1930 an alternate sound version was produced by Paramount in Hungarian with a Hungarian director and cast.

Jeanne Eagels was to star in the film but died before production began.
