Phaedra was a 1962 motion picture directed by Jules Dassin as a vehicle for his partner Melina Mercouri, after her world-wide hit Never on Sunday.
The film was the fourth collaboration between Dassin and Mercouri, who took the title role. Greek writer Margarita Lymberaki adapted Euripides' Hippolytus into a melodrama concerning the rich society of ship owners and their families, but still containing some of the tragic elements of the ancient drama. The film is set in Paris and London, and especially on the Greek island of Hydra.
