The Outsider is a 1931 British drama film directed by Harry Lachman and starring Joan Barry, Harold Huth and Norman McKinnel.[1] The screenplay concerns an unorthodox osteopath who cures one of his patients, the daughter of a fellow Doctor. It was made at Elstree Studios[2] and based on the 1923 play of the same title by Dorothy Brandon, previously made into an American silent film in 1926. The film's sets were designed by Wilfred Arnold.

Harold Huth's performance was voted the best in a British film in 1931.[3] The film was remade in 1939 as The Outsider with George Sanders and Mary Maguire in the leading roles.
