Other Men's Women is a 1931 Pre-code American film directed by William A. Wellman and written by Maude Fulton. It was produced and distributed by Warner Bros. The film stars Grant Withers, Regis Toomey and Mary Astor.

It was first previewed and released in 1930 in a limited number of locations under the title The Steel Highway. By the time of the film's general release the title had been changed to Other Men's Women. Due to the public's apathy and aversion to anything musical in films in late 1930 and early 1931, the film's music is kept to an absolute minimum. The credits at the beginning and ending of the film are presented without music and there is virtually no background musical score throughout the film.


The film is about Bill (Grant Withers), a railroad engineer, who falls in love with Lily (Mary Astor), the wife of his co-worker Jack (Regis Toomey). When the two men fight over Lily, Jack is blinded. He dies in a violent storm saving Bill's life.



  • "Leave A Little Smile" - sung by Grant Withers, J. Farrell MacDonald and Mary Astor (from the Warner Bros. musical Oh Sailor Behave)
  • "The Kiss Waltz" - played on the phonograph (from the Warner Bros. musical Dancing Sweeties)
  • "Tomorrow Is Another Day" - played at the restaurant/dance hall (from the Warner Bros. musical Big Boy)


The New York Times described the film as "an unimportant little drama of the railroad yards", but [[Variety (magazine)
