Murray Kinnell (24 July 1889 – 11 August 1954) was an English-born American actor, recognized for playing smooth, gentlemanly, although rather shady characters. He appeared in 71 films in the USA between the pre-code era of 1930 and 1937.

He was best known as the two-timing petty-larceny hood Putty Nose in The Public Enemy (1931). He also appeared in a number of the Charlie Chan series of films. He also had a brief tenure in stage work from 1911, prior to his cinema career.

On 11 August 1954, Kinnell died at his home in Santa Barbara, California.[1]
