Mickey Kuhn (born September 21, 1932) is a former American actor, having started as a child actor in the 1930s and appearing opposite Conrad Nagel and Leslie Howard, amongst others. His first fame came in playing the role of Beau Wilkes in Gone with the Wind (1939). He later went on to appear in Juarez (1939) opposite Bette Davis, and in A Streetcar Named Desire (1951), in which he was reunited with Vivien Leigh a dozen years after they first worked together in Gone with the Wind. In A Streetcar Named Desire, Kuhn played a sailor who directs Blanche to the correct streetcar which will take her to her sister's neighborhood at the beginning of the film. He is the only actor to share screen time with Leigh in each of her Oscar-winning performances.

Born Theodore Matthew Michael Kuhn, Jr. in Waukegan, Illinois of German descent, Kuhn is one of the last two surviving credited cast members from Gone with the Wind, and the sole surviving male actor. Olivia de Havilland (born July 1, 1916), who played Melanie Hamilton, is the other.
