Barbara Loden (July 8, 1932 – September 5, 1980) was a Tony-award-winning American stage and film actress as well as a director of off-Broadway theater and a critically acclaimed feature film. Loden began her career at an early age in New York City as a commercial model and chorus-line dancer. She became a regular sidekick on the irreverent Ernie Kovacs Television Show and was a lifetime member of the famed Actors Studio. She appeared in several projects directed by her second husband, Elia Kazan, including Splendor in the Grass. She wrote, directed, and starred in Wanda, a groundbreaking independent film that won the International Critics Award at the 1970 Venice Film Festival.
