Murray Alper (January 11, 1904 – November 16, 1984) was an American actor.
Alper's earliest screen credit was in The Royal Family of Broadway (1930), and until the late 1960s, he appeared in a number of films and TV series, usually playing cab drivers, bookies, cops and GIs.
Frequently seen in comedies, Alper was featured in the Three Stooges' Tricky Dicks (1953) and The Outlaws Is Coming (aka, Three Stooges Meet the Gunslingers, 1965), and also in several films of the director Alfred Hitchcock. One of Alper's least characteristic roles was the judo instructor in Jerry Lewis' The Nutty Professor (1963).
