Rosemary Ames (December 11, 1906 - April 15, 1988) was an American film actress of the early 1930s.

Ames was born in Evanston, Illinois, making her film acting debut in the 1932 movie Loving on the Spot, portraying the lead role opposite Richard Dolman. She would star in Mr. Quincey of Monte Carlo in 1933, again playing the lead role opposite John Stuart. In 1934 she would again have the lead starring roles in all of her films, first in I Believed In You, followed by Such Women Are Dangerous and Pursued. Her first premier role was alongside Janet Gaynor and Warner Baxter in the 1935 film One More Spring. She followed that starring opposite Edmund Lowe and Victor McLaglen in The Great Hotel Murder, and opposite Shirley Temple and Joel McCrea in Our Little Girl that same year.

That would be her last film role. For reasons unknown, although her career was on track and she had been successful with leading roles throughout, she retired unexpectedly that same year. She never returned to acting, and married three times, to Abner Stillwell, Bertie Alexander Meyer, and lastly to E. Ogden Ketting. At the time of her death on April 15, 1988, she was residing in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.
