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.
