Gittel Enoyce "Binnie" Barnes (25 May 1903 – 27 July 1998), later known as Gertrude Maude Barnes, was an English actress.

She was born in Islington to a Jewish father and an Italian mother and was raised Jewish.

She began her acting career in films in 1923 and continued until 1973 (her final role was in the comedy 40 Carats). Her most famous film was probably The Private Life of Henry VIII, which starred Charles Laughton in the title role, with Barnes as Katherine Howard.

She was married to film producer Mike Frankovich, for whom she converted to Roman Catholicism and became an American citizen. They adopted three children.

She died of natural causes at the age of 95 in Beverly Hills, California, in 1998, survived by her three children, including production manager Mike Frankovich Jr. and producer Peter Frankovich. Her interment was in Glendale's Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery.
