Richard Quine (November 12, 1920 – June 10, 1989) was an American stage, film, and radio child actor, singer and, later, a film director. He began acting as a child in radio, vaudeville, and stage productions before being signed to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in his early twenties. When his acting career began to wane after World War II, Quine began working as a film director. He later moved into producing and directing television. Quine's films as director include Bell Book and Candle (1958), The World of Suzie Wong (1960), Paris When It Sizzles (1964), How to Murder Your Wife (1965), and The Prisoner of Zenda (1979).

Depressed over poor health, Quine died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in June 1989 at the age of 68.
