Joan Marsh (July 10, 1913 - August 10, 2000) was an American film actress.

Marsh was the daughter of Charles Rosher. She made her first film appearance as an infant in the Universal Pictures film Hearts Aflame (1915), billed as Dorothy Rosher. After a number of baby roles, Marsh became a child star in Pickford films such as Daddy-Long-Legs (1919) and Pollyanna (1920).

Marsh made her last film appearance as a child in 1921, and returned to films with a role in King of Jazz (1930), in which she sang with Bing Crosby. She played W.C. Fields' daughter in You're Telling Me! (1934). She continued in small roles until the early 1940s. During production of Charlie Chan on Broadway (1937), Marsh met and later married Charles Belden, who had co-written the film's screenplay. The marriage ended in divorce in 1943, and the following year Marsh made her final film appearance in Follow the Leader (1944).

She later managed a stationery shop, and died in Ojai, California in 2000. Marsh was cremated.
