Mona Barrie was an English born actress in American theatre and motion pictures.

Born Mona Smith in London, she was educated in Australia and made her professional debut as a ballet dancer in Sydney at the age of sixteen. This led to a solo act in musical comedies. In 1933 she emigrated to New York, was given a test for films and this led to signing with Fox Film Corporation and making her film debut in 1934 using the stage name Mona Barrie. While her lack of a glamorous beauty resulted in her generally being cast in important but secondary roles, during a film career spanning almost twenty years she appeared in more than fifty motion pictures. For her contribution to the industry, Mona Barrie has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6140 Hollywood Blvd.

Barrie co-starred in 1942's Dawn on the Great Divide, the last film Buck Jones made before dying in the Cocoanut Grove fire in Boston, Massachusetts.

A stage actress as well, Mona Barrie performed at various playhouses across the U.S. and debuted on Broadway in 1937.
