Raquel Torres (born Paula Marie Osterman; November 11, 1908 August 10, 1987) was a Mexican-born American film actress. Her sister was actress Renee Torres.

A half-German half-Mexican woman born in Hermosillo, Mexico, she grew up in Hollywood. She starred in late silent and early sound films like White Shadows in the South Seas (1928) and Duck Soup (1933). The former was a silent film shot in Tahiti but was MGM's first feature fully synchronized with pre-recorded music and effects. The latter was a famous 1933 Marx Brothers comedy, in which she played a would-be Mata Hari type.
