Polly Ann Young (October 25, 1908 – January 21, 1997) was an American film actress.


Actresses Loretta Young and Sally Blane were her sisters, and, of the three, Polly Ann was the least successful. Between 1917 and 1941 she featured in 34 movies, some of them minor uncredited roles. Among her most notable movie roles, was as John Wayne's leading lady in The Man From Utah (1934). Her last film was the 1941 Poverty Row horror movie Invisible Ghost where she played alongside Bela Lugosi.

Young married Carter Hermann in 1935, and they had four children. Her husband died in the 1970s and she died in 1997 of cancer in Los Angeles, California, aged 88. Her sisters Sally and Loretta also died of cancer. She was a half-sister to Georgiana Young Montalban, wife of actor Ricardo Montalban.
