Julia Swayne Gordon (October 29, 1878 – May 28, 1933) was an American actress. She appeared in 228 films between 1908 and 1933.


Born in Columbus, Ohio, Gordon starred in the first film version of the Lady Godiva legend in 1911. A veteran of numerous silent film appearances, she may be best remembered today as Richard Arlen's mother in Wings (1927) where she gives a tearful and emotional goodbye to Arlen as he leaves for combat flight training in France, packing him off with his favorite childhood toy.

Gordon died in Los Angeles, California.
