The Divorcee

The Divorcee is a 1930 film that was written by Nick Grindé, John Meehan and Zelda Sears, from the novel Ex-Wife by Ursula Parrott.

Chester Morris plays a roving husband who has a brief affair with another woman -- and tells his wife it doesn't mean a thing. When wife Norma Shearer sets out to "settle the account" by having an affair with his best friend, the husband suddenly discovers that it might actually mean something after all.

Shearer won the Academy Award for Best Actress.

Other movies with the same title were released in 1917, 1919 and 1969.
