Charles Hutchison (3 December 1879 - 30 May 1949) was an American film actor, director and screenwriter. He appeared in 49 films between 1914 and 1944. He also directed 33 films between 1915 and 1938. Though he directed numerous independent silent features, he is best remembered today as Pathé's leading male serial star from 1918 to 1922. He made one last serial in 1926, Lightning Hutch, for Arrow Film Company. It was meant to be a comeback vehicle, but the production company went into bankruptcy just as it was released.

He was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and died in Hollywood, California. He was the person who convinced actor Karl Dane to return to films in the mid 1920s.
