Frank Beal (September 11, 1862 – December 20, 1934) was an American actor and film director of the silent film era.


Born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1862,[2] Beal began acting in 1880 and gained fame as a director and an actor. In 1908, he moved from stage to film, with the Selig Polyscope Company. He appeared in 42 films between 1910 and 1933, and also directed 41 films between 1910 and 1921.

Beal was married to actress Louise Lester and was the father of actress Dolly Beal and actor Scott Beal.[3] He died in Hollywood, California, in 1934.[2] His obituary in the Los Angeles Times called him "one of the first prominent figures of the theatrical industry to desert it and go into motion pictures".[4]
