"The Royal Family of Broadway", (also known as" Theatre Royal "), is a 1930 Paramount comedy film, directed by George Cukor and Cyril Gardner. The screenplay was adapted by Herman J. Mankiewicz and Gertrude Purcell from the play "The Royal Family" by Edna Ferber and George S. Kaufman.

It stars Ina Claire, Fredric March, Mary Brian, Henrietta Crosman, Arnold Korff and Frank Conroy.

The film tells the story of a girl from a family of great Broadway actors who contemplates leaving show business and getting married. The characters are loosely based on the first American theatrical family, the Barrymores. It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor (Fredric March).
