Murdock MacQuarrie (25 August 1878 in San Francisco, California – 22 August 1942 in Los Angeles, California) was an American silent film actor and director.

Murdock began his long screen career as an actor in early films, including The Count of Monte Cristo (1913), before becoming a director at Universal. He is perhaps best-remembered by modern audiences as J. Widdecombe Billows, the eccentric inventor of the eating machine, in Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times (1936).

He was the brother of actors Albert MacQuarrie, Frank MacQuarrie, and George MacQuarrie.
