Alexander Arturovich Rou (also, Rowe, from his Irish father's name) (Russian: Александр Артурович Роу, 24 February [O.S. 11 February] 1906 – 28 December 1973) was a Soviet film director, and People's Artist of the RSFSR (1968). He worked primarily in the fairy-tale genre.
He was born to an Irish father (Arthur Rowe) and Greek mother, hence his unusual family name.
