Common Clay is a 1930 American Pre-Code film directed by Victor Fleming and starring Constance Bennett and Lew Ayres, based on the play of the same name by Cleves Kinkead which starred Jane Cowl. The film is about a young servant who is seduced by the master of the house who will having nothing else to do with her besides sex because she is of an inferior class. She becomes pregnant and seeks to have the child recognized but his family treats her as if she was a blackmailer.

Common Clay was one of the highest grossing films of 1930 and it made Constance Bennett into a Hollywood star.

A previous version of the play had been filmed before in 1919 as a silent movie by director George Fitzmaurice and starring Fannie Ward. It is now lost.
