The Silver Cord is a 1933 American Pre-Code film produced and released by RKO Radio Pictures, directed by John Cromwell, and based on a 1926 Broadway play, The Silver Cord by Sidney Howard, that starred Laura Hope Crews as an overly possessive mother.

Crews reprises her domineering mother role in this film with Joel McCrea and Irene Dunne as her son and daughter-in-law. Another Hollywood film dealing with an overbearing mother figure was Broken Laws (1924), produced by and starring Dorothy Davenport.[1][2]

Director John Cromwell welcomed the opportunity to adapt The Silver Cord to the screen as he had directed Sidney Howard’s play in its 1926 Broadway production. Film historian Kingsley Canham reports that Crowell “felt that he could pull it off better than any other [film] director.” [3]
