Lola Todd (May 14, 1904 – July 31, 1995) was an American film actress in the early years of Hollywood's silent film era.

Todd was born in New York City, and moved to Hollywood in the early 1920s to pursue film acting. She received her first role in the 1923 film The Ghost City, followed by Rustlin' Buster that same year, opposite Jack Mower. In 1924 her career briefly took off, and she would star in nine films that year. In 1925 she would have roles in only three films, but would be one of thirteen girls selected to be "WAMPAS Baby Stars", a list which included future Hollywood legend June Marlowe.

She would star in five films the following year, and four in 1927, but afterward her career would slow considerably. In 1928 and 1929 combined she would have roles in only three films, and with the advent of "talking films" her career ended promptly. She retired in Los Angeles, where she resided until her death on July 31, 1995, aged 91.
