The Story of Dr. Wassell (1944) is a Technicolor World War II film set in the Dutch East Indies, directed by Cecil B. DeMille, and starring Gary Cooper, Laraine Day, Signe Hasso, and Dennis O'Keefe. It was based on a book of the same name by novelist and screenwriter James Hilton, his only nonfiction book.

The book and movie were inspired by the wartime activities of U.S. Navy Doctor Corydon M. Wassell which were referred to by President Roosevelt in a radio broadcast made in April 1942. The appropriate section of this broadcast appears toward the end of the film.

For their work on this film, Farciot Edouart and Gordon Jennings received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.
