Marion Burnside Randall, who acted under the name Sue Randall, (October 8, 1935 - October 26, 1984) was an American actress best known for her role as the kindly Alice Landers, Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver's grade-school teacher in ABC's sitcom, Leave It to Beaver.

Philadelphia-born Randall's debut on the small screen was in the 1955 episode "Golden Victory" of the series Star Tonight. She later appeared as one of the employees in the Reference Department in the 1957 film Desk Set, which starred Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn.

Her Beaver years spanned 1958-1963, when she was in her twenties. She appeared in twenty-nine episodes.

Randall's primary roles were on television in guest-starring roles. She appeared in such series as CBS's The Twilight Zone and Gunsmoke, NBC's Bonanza and The Man and the Challenge, and ABC's The Fugitive. In 1961, she guest starred as Ellen, with Adolphe Menjou as Fitch and Orson Bean as her husband John Monroe, in the episode "The Secret Life of James Thurber", based on the works of the American humorist James Thurber, in the CBS anthology series The DuPont Show with June Allyson. She was also on Perry Mason.

Randall, who was a heavy smoker, died of lung cancer on October 26, 1984, at the age of forty-nine. She is survived by two sons, Blake and Kenneth.
