Rosalind Ivan (27 November 1880 – 6 April 1959) was an English stage and film character actress. Ivan appeared in 14 US films from 1944 to 1954. She had a memorable role as the nagging wife of a bank teller (Edward G. Robinson) in Fritz Lang's film Scarlet Street (1945).
That role, along with a similar "nagging wife" role (of Charles Laughton) in Robert Siodmak's The Suspect (1944), caused some in Hollywood to dub her "Ivan the Terrible". She also appeared in 20th Century Fox's Biblical epic The Robe. She starred with Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre in The Verdict (1946). The actress gained most of her fame on the Broadway and London stages.
On April 6, 1959, Ivan was found dead in her hotel room in New York City. She was 78 years old. Police attributed her death to natural causes.
