Gwen Lee (November 12, 1904 – August 20, 1961) was an American film actress from Hastings, Nebraska. Her given name was Gwendolyn Lepinski.

Lee began as a model and was discovered by a casting director. She signed a contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in August 1925. Almost immediately she was cast in two MGM films, I’ll Tell The World and A Little Bit of Broadway, produced by Robert Z. Leonard. At the end of the month, she acted with Mae Murray in The Masked Bride, directed by Christy Cabanne. By September 1925, Lee was selected by MGM officials to represent the Culver City, California studio as a beauty contestant for the Eastern Star Fashion and Home Exposition, which was held in October. Occasionally Gwen appeared in movies only briefly, but received notice for her chic attire. One such instance was in the MGM Edmund Gouldingproduction of Sally, Irene and Mary (1925).
She was a WAMPAS Baby Star in 1928.
Her career continued for almost a decade into the era of sound motion pictures. Lee played Marjory in Untamed (1929), with Joan Crawford and Robert Montgomery. She appeared again with Crawford and Marie Prevost in the prison drama Paid (1930). In 1931, she was in The Galloping Ghost, with famed football running back Red Grange, and the crime drama,The Lawless Woman, with Vera Reynolds. She made a western, Broadway To Cheyenne (1932), with Rex Bell. Her final film roles were in Man-Proof and Paroled From The Big House, both in 1938.
