Mildred Cram (October 17, 1889 – April 4, 1985) was an American writer.
Her short story "Stranger Things" was included in the O. Henry Award story collection for 1921. A number of her stories and novels were made into films. She was also nominated, along with Leo McCarey, for the Academy Award for Best Writing, Original Story for Love Affair (1939).
Gerald Clarke wrote in his biography Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland that Cram was Tyrone Power's favorite author. Power introduced Garland to Cram's novella Forever, which Garland could eventually "quote word for word".
