Francis McDonald (August 22, 1891 – September 18, 1968) was an American actor whose career spanned 52 years.


McDonald made 41 film and television appearances between 1913 and 1965, appearing in films such as The Temptress in 1926 with Greta Garbo. He made numerous television appearances, including six episodes of The Roy Rogers Show, five episodes of Lone Ranger, and four episodes each of Broken Arrow, Sugarfoot, and Perry Mason. Among his four Perry Mason roles were as Captain Noble in the 1957 episode, "The Case of the Crooked Candle," and Salty Sims in "The Case of the Petulant Partner" (1959).

McDonald is sometimes mistakenly thought to be a brother of Wallace MacDonald because of close resemblance. However, they were both born in 1891 three months apart and spelled their surnames differently.
