Sue Ane Langdon (born March 8, 1936) is a retired American actress.

She began her performing career singing at Radio City Music Hall and acting in stage productions. In the mid-1960s she acted at Manhattan's Schubert Theatre in The Apple Tree musical, which starred a young Alan Alda. In 1976, she was in the musical Hello Dolly at The Little Theatre on the Square in Illinois.

Langdon was featured in many comedies as well as an occasional dramatic performance. She appeared in a pair of Elvis Presley movies, Roustabout and Frankie and Johnny. Her starring role as the wife in the CBS television series Arnie won her a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress - Television.

Her film debut came in 1961's The Great Impostor, which starred Tony Curtis. Langdon went on to have leading roles in films such as The Rounders (1965) with Henry Fonda and Glenn Ford (which included a memorable scene involving her exposed buttocks), A Guide for the Married Man (1967) with Walter Matthau A Man Called Dagger and The Cheyenne Social Club with Fonda and James Stewart. She also appeared with Sean Connery in a short but memorable scene in 1966's A Fine Madness which led to her posing nude for Playboy magazine. In that same year of 1966, United Artists Pictures released Frankie and Johnny in which Langdon co-starred along with Elvis Presley, Donna Douglas (Elly May Clampett of The Beverly Hillbillies fame) and Harry Morgan (of Dragnet and later MASH fame).Langdon was the third actress to play Alice Kramden in Jackie Gleason's The Honeymooners sketches and shows, preceded by Pert Kelton and Audrey Meadows and followed by Sheila MacRae and Meadows again. Langdon shared a Life magazine cover with Gleason, but played the role only briefly in the 1960s version, during the American Scene Magazine era, before MacRae took the role over for the color hour-long musical versions.

She appeared as Kitty Marsh during the NBC portion (1959 1961) of Bachelor Father, starring John Forsythe, Noreen Corcoran, and Sammee Tong. The next year, she appeared twice on Rod Cameron's syndicated crime drama COronado 9. In 1962, she appeared as nurse Mary Simpson in an episode of CBS's The Andy Griffith Show and as Kate Tassel in The "Catawomper" episode of Gunsmoke. She made guest appearances on such series as Mannix, McHale's Navy, Bonanza, Ironside, Perry Mason, Banacek, The Wild Wild West, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Three's Company and Happy Days.

Her name has often appeared in crossword puzzles as a three letter word clue, due to the unusual spelling of the middle name she was often credited under (Ane instead of the more conventional spellings of Ann or Anne).
