Alice Mann (October 16, 1899 – March 1986) was an American silent film actress.
Mann began her film career in late 1915 with the Lubin Manufacturing Company, appearing in six shorts before the production company ceased operations the following year. She then moved to Vitagraph Studios, appearing in ten shorts in 1916 and 1917, many with veteran vaudeville actor Jimmy Aubrey and nine of which were directed by nascent film comedian/director Larry Semon. Arbuckle then cast her in three of his early Comique shorts (produced by Joseph M. Schenck) made with Buster Keaton. Her most well-known film appearances are with Roscoe Arbuckle in Coney Island, His Wedding Night, and Oh Doctor! when she was only around 17 years of age.[unreliable source]
When the Comique production company relocated to California in late 1917, Alice remained in the New York City metro area. She received top billing in the film drama The Water Lily, released by Triangle Pictures in 1919.
Subsequent appearances include Scrambled Wives, the last movie by famed screen and stage waif Marguerite Clark. Alice Mann's film career apparently ended in 1925 and, like many early cinema actresses, she vanished into history. Only six of her credited thirty films are known to survive. In 1921, she married Sidney G. Ash.
