Pandora's Box (German: Die Büchse der Pandora) is a German silent film directed by G.W. Pabst and released in 1929. The title is a reference to Pandora of Greek mythology, who upon opening a box given to her by the gods released all evils into the world, leaving only hope behind.

The film is based loosely on Frank Wedekind's plays Erdgeist (Earth Spirit, 1895) and Die Büchse der Pandora (1904), which was also the source for Alban Berg's opera Lulu.
