The Shady Lady is a 1928 American drama film directed by Edward H. Griffith and starring Phyllis Haver, Robert Armstrong and Louis Wolheim. It was made as a part-talkie during the transition from silent to sound film.
A review in Harrison's Reports said that the film was a good story, keeping the viewer's interest throughout, with "pretty tense suspense" in its second half. It added, "The manner by which the different threads of the story are interwoven in the closing scenes is intelligent, and satisfies the discriminating spectator." The review praised Haver, Armstrong, and Wolheim for their work.
