Reginald Le Borg (11 December 1902 – 25 March 1989) was an Austrian film director. He was born in Vienna, Austria as Reginald Grobel and directed 68 films between 1936 and 1974.

Although he worked in a variety of genres, he is perhaps best remembered today for the series of low-budget horror films he made at Universal Studios in the 1940s. His most expensive and also most successful film was San Diego, I Love You (1944) featuring Buster Keaton in a supporting role.

Le Borg died in Los Angeles, California from a heart attack.
