The Telephone Girl and the Lady is a 1913 American silent drama film directed by D. W. Griffith.


The film was prepared by Griffith and shot by his assistant, Tony O'Sullivan.[1]

Film historian William K. Everson noted that the film made use of a moving camera in "some extremely good running inserts" and a "well-done fight between Paget and villain Harry Carey at the climax", but offered that the film did not have a good flow due to its awkward cuts and overuse of devices intended to prolong suspense.[1]
