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.
