"Strange Interlude " is a 1932 American romantic drama film directed by Robert Z. Leonard. The film stars Norma Shearer and Clark Gable, and is based on the play "Strange Interlude" by Eugene O'Neill.


Gordon Shaw was a flyer who was shot down and killed during World War I. Nina would have married him before he left, but her father forbade the marriage. Charlie is a friend, but Nina does not love him and he is too timid- too shy - to tell her the way that he feels about her. Sam is her husband and her love disappears after the ceremony when she finds out that there is mental illness in his family and that there can be no children. To have the child she wants, but cannot have with Sam, she has a secret affair with Ned, who wants her to leave Sam. Gordon is the result of the affair, but he does not know Ned is his real father. Nina continues to play with the emotions of all three men and devote herself only to Gordon.

The play originally opened on Broadway in New York City on January 30, 1928 with 426 performances. The lead characters were played by Lynn Fontanne and Glenn Anders, and the supporting cast included Helen Westley and Tom Powers. Because the play had 9 acts, it began in the afternoon, and concluded in the evening after an intermission for dinner. There were two Broadway revivals after the film was released.
