Madame Jealousy is a 1918 American silent allegorical drama film directed by Robert G. Vignola and written by George V. Hobart and Eve Unsell. The film stars Pauline Frederick, Thomas Meighan, Frank Losee, Charles Wellesley, Isabel O'Madigan, and Elsie MacLeod. The film was released on February 4, 1918, by Paramount Pictures.[1][2]


As described in a film magazine,[3] always ready to wreck the happiness of human beings, Jealousy (Frederick) selects Charm (MacLeod) and Valor (Meighan) as her two victims. She is almost successful at bringing about her desires, but the arrival of the child Happiness overcomes all disagreements. Jealousy awaits with interest her next victims.



L.J. Bourstein of Motography wrote: "Miss Frederick again is given opportunity to display her unusual dramatic capabilities and accomplishes another remarkable success [...] Excellent photography has considerable to do with this picture. Many of the numerous camera effects have been executed with precision and bespeaks of the capability of Ned Van Buren, the photographer. Robert Vignola directed and has turned out a very satisfactory and entertaining drama".[4]

Like many American films of the time, Madame Jealousy was subject to cuts by city and state film censorship boards. The Chicago Board of Censors required a cut, in Reel 4, of an intoxicated young woman rising from a table and staggering towards a man.[5]
