The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C21H20N2, contain two mol­ecules, both of them showing an E configuration of the C=N bond. The dihedral angles between the phenyl rings in the phenyl­hydrazone groups are 86.84 (10) and 84.85 (8)° for the two mol­ecules. Inter­molecular C—H⋯π inter­actions are observed in the crystal structure.
