We present an action for the Neveu-Schwarz-Ramond model from which follow both the field equations and the gauge and supergauge constraints. This is done by coupling the free-field action to two-dimensional supergravity in a geometrically clear way. The constraints arise as the supergravity field equations, the supergravity fields playing the role of Lagrange multipliers. The action is invariant under local supersymmetry transformations and, as a consequence, the field equations and the constraints are consistent. The commutator structure of the local supersymmetry algebra is exhibited. It is also shown that there exists a special gauge in which the action, the field equations and the constraints take the free-field form of the usual formulation of the Neveu-Schwarz-Ramond model.
