The 10th Victim (Italian title: La decima vittima) is a 1965 Italian/French action science fiction espionage comedy directed by Elio Petri based on Robert Sheckley's 1953 short story "Seventh Victim".

In the far-off year of 2000, the private Hunt Club is created at the global level whose members, linked by computers, participate in ten hunts - alternating one as a hunter, the next as a victim. The game has a total of ten hunts and whoever wins all ten hunts, gains immense popularity, a lot of money, a car, various discounts and benefits, etc. For American champion Caroline Meredith (Ursula Andress), the computer selects Italian Marcello Polletti (Marcello Mastroianni) as her tenth victim. The Hunter knows all about his or her victims, but the victim is only told that a hunt has started with him/her as the victim. Marcello is reluctant to kill Meredith because he is not sure whether she is his hunter and the penalty for killing non-participants is thirty years in prison. To maximize financial gain, Meredith has to kill her victim in front of the cameras as she has negotiated a major sponsor from the Ming Tea Company. But she falls in love with Marcello and devises a ruse how to outwit everyone- the Hunt Club agency, Marcello's ex-wife, and Marcello's mistress.
