Stuart Maxwell Whitman (born February 1, 1928) is an American actor.

Stuart Whitman is arguably best-known for playing Marshal Jim Crown in the western television series Cimarron Strip in 1967. Whitman also starred with John Wayne in the Western movie, The Comancheros, in 1961, and received top billing as the romantic lead in the extravagant aerial epic Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines in 1965.

Whitman was born in San Francisco, California, the eldest of two sons. His parents, Cecilia (née Gold) and Joseph Whitman, traveled frequently during his childhood, and as a result, he attended over twenty schools. He graduated from high school and spent three years in the Army Corps of Engineers. After leaving the army, he enrolled in Los Angeles City College and the Los Angeles Academy of Dramatic Art.
