Monroe Owsley (August 11, 1900 June 8, 1937) was an American actor.

Born in Atlanta, Georgia to aspiring actress Gertrude Owsley, he started taking acting classes when he was a teenager and made his Broadway debut in the 1920s. His film debut occurred in 1928 with The First Kiss, following with the character of young boy Ned in the Philip Barry film Holiday in 1930. A later version had his part portrayed by Lew Ayres. Soon after, he was cast opposite actresses such as Clara Bow, Joan Crawford, and Kay Francis. His portrayal of Ned later made a downslide to Owsley's career.

Owsley died in 1937 from a heart attack in a car accident.
