Albert Mannheimer (9 March 1913, New York City, New York - 19 March 1972, Los Angeles County, California) was an American writer, principally of screenplays, including the Academy Award nominated screenplay for Born Yesterday, which screenplay also received the Writers Guild of America award for Best Written American Comedy Award.

He was a protégé of philosopher-novelist Ayn Rand in the late 1940s and early 1950s. His relationship with Rand is covered in two recent (as of 2010) books - Ayn Rand and the World She Made by Anne C. Heller and Goddess of the Market by Jennifer Burns.
