Untamed is a 1940 American film directed by George Archainbaud. It is based on the 1926 Sinclair Lewis novel Mantrap.

Ray Milland plays a doctor on a hunting trip to the Canadian wilderness. He gets badly mauled by a bear, and his life is saved by his guide, Joe Easter (Tamiroff). Easter takes the doctor to his cabin where he is nursed to recovery by Easter's young beautiful wife Alverna. They fall in love. Easter leaves for an extended hunting trip, while the doctor and Alverna grapple with their feelings for each other, a blizzard, and an epidemic.
