"Berkeley Square" is the title of a 1933 film produced by Fox Film Corporation which tells the story of a young American who is transported back to London in the time of the American Revolution, where he meets his ancestors. For several years it was considered lost until rediscovered in the 1970s. It has yet to be released onto DVD-Video.

It was directed by Frank Lloyd and stars Leslie Howard, Heather Angel, Valerie Taylor and Colin Keith-Johnston. Howard plays a man living in an old house who travels back in time 150 years to inhabit the body of his look-alike 18th century ancestor; he was nominated for an Academy Award for the role. The film was also an inspiration for a H. P. Lovecraft story "The Shadow out of Time" (1936).

It was based on the play of the same name by John Balderston.

This movie was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor (Leslie Howard).

The film was remade in 1951. The remake, entitled "The House in the Square", but shown in the U.S. as "I'll Never Forget You", starred Tyrone Power and Ann Blyth. It used a similar technique as "The Wizard of Oz", by presenting the opening and closing sequences in black-and-white, and the rest of the film in color.
