Jack Harvey (born John Joseph Harvey; September 16, 1881 – November 9, 1954) was an American film actor, director and screenwriter, noted for his short films of the silent period.

Among his directed films are A Dog's Love (1914) (the first of many collaborations with Shep, a well-trained Collie of the Thanhouser Company), When Fate Rebelled (1915), Fairy Fern Seed (1915), Kaiser's Finish (1918) and his last film No Babies Wanted (1928), accred as John J. Harvey. He continued to act, but most of his roles after the 1920s were very minor and uncred in films such as Cardinal Richelieu (1935) and Anchors Aweigh (1945). He also continued to write for films until his death in 1954, the last of which was City Beneath the Sea (1953).[1]
