The Saturday Night Kid is a 1929 American Pre-Code romantic comedy film about two sisters and the man they both want. It stars Clara Bow, Jean Arthur, James Hall, and in her first credited role, Jean Harlow. The film was based on the play Love 'Em and Leave 'Em (1926) by George Abbott and John V. A. Weaver. The movie still survives. The film was preserved by the UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding by Clara Bow biographer David Stenn.

Set in May 1929, the film focuses on two sisters - Mayme (Clara Bow) and Janie (Jean Arthur) - as they share an apartment in New York City. In daytime, they work as salesgirls at the Ginsberg's department store, and at night they vie for the attention of their colleague Bill (James Hall) and fight over Janie's selfish and reckless behavior, such as stealing Mayme's clothes and hitchhiking to work with strangers. Bill prefers Mayme over Janie and constantly shows his affection for her. This upsets Janie, who schemes to break up the couple.

One day at work, Bill is promoted to floorwalker, while Janie is made treasurer of the benefit pageant. Mayme, however, is not granted a promotion, but gets heavily criticized for constantly being late at work by the head of personnel, Miss Streeter (Edna May Oliver).
