Winterset is a 1936 American crime film directed by Alfred Santell, based on the play by Maxwell Anderson.

The film greatly changes the ending of the play, in which the lovers Mio and Miriamne are shot to death by gangsters. In the film, the two are cornered, but Mio deliberately causes a commotion by loudly playing a nearby abandoned hurdy gurdy and deliberately causing himself and Miriamne to be arrested, thus placing them out of reach from the gangsters.
