Robert Edeson (June 3, 1868, New Orleans, Louisiana March 24, 1931, Hollywood, California) was an American movie and stage actor of the silent era. Edeson got his first boost in movies in 1914 when he starred in the Cecil B. DeMille directed film, The Call of the North.

Edeson replaced actor Christians in Erich von Stroheim's production of Foolish Wives (1922), after Christians died of pneumonia. Edeson famously only showed his back to the camera so as not to clash with shot footage of Christians that was still to be used in the completed film. He also starred in several Broadway productions as well.
