Bryan Foy (December 8, 1896 – April 20, 1977) was an American film producer and director. He produced 214 films between 1924 and 1963. He also directed 41 films between 1923 and 1934. He headed the B picture unit at Warner Bros. where he was known as "the keeper of the B's".
He was born in Chicago, Illinois on December 8, 1896. He was the eldest son of the vaudeville star Eddie Foy and appeared with his father in the vaudeville act "Eddie Foy and The Seven Little Foys." The act broke up when Bryan Foy left to join the U.S. Army in World War I in 1918, after which his remaining siblings continued performing with their father under the title, "Eddie Foy and the Younger Foys", through 1923, when their father retired.
He was also a songwriter, and by 1916 had several published songs, including "My Honolulu Girl".
