4 Devils (also known as Four Devils) is a American silent drama film directed by Germanmarker film director F. W. Murnau starring Janet Gaynor. The film was released by Fox Film Corporation and was produced by William Fox, who had hired Murnau to come to the United States and make film, including this one and Sunrise (1927), which had also starred Gaynor.

The short story ("Les Quatre Diables") on which the film is based is by the Danish author Herman Bang, who was highly esteemed in Germany. The plot concerns four orphans (Anders Randolf, Barry Norton, Charles Morton, and Gaynor) who become a high wire act, and centers around sinister goings-on at a circus.

No copies of the film are known to exist, and 4 Devils remains among the most mourned of the lost films of the silent era. Details about the movie can be found on the DVD for Sunrise, released by 20th Century Fox as part of their 20th Century Fox Studio Classics collection. A film scholar, the late William K. Everson, stated that the only surviving print was lost by actress Mary Duncan who had borrowed it from Fox Studios.
