Dorothy Boyd (14 April 1907 – 1996) was an English film actress. She appeared in 38 films between 1926 and 1940. She was born in Sanderstead, Surrey, England and died in England.


Without any previous stage experience, she came to films when she appeared in three short films made in the Phonofilm sound-on-film process, Knee Deep in Daisies (1926), The Sentence of Death (1927), and The Burglar and the Girl (1928). A director was impressed by her and brought her to the notice of Alfred Hitchcock who cast her in his feature Easy Virtue (1928).
