Peter Baldwin (January 11, 1931 – November 19, 2017) was an American actor and director of film and television.
Baldwin started his career as an actor, employed as a contract player at Paramount Studios. He played Johnson in the movie Stalag 17 and Lieutenant Walker in the movie Little Boy Lost, both made in 1953. In 1962 he played the role of murderer Tony Benson in the Perry Mason episode, "The Case of the Melancholy Marksman", and appeared in the 1970 Italian thriller The Weekend Murders.
