The title compound, C20H18N2O, is composed of three aromatic rings, the dihedral angles between the phenyl and benzamide rings, and between the benzamide and aniline rings being 59.86 (9) and 46.57 (10)°, respectively. The molecular structure is stabilized by an intramolecular N—H⋯O hydrogen bond involving the amino H atom and the benzamide carbonyl O atom. In the crystal structure, C—H⋯O and C—H⋯π interactions are present.
