Dorothy Provine (born January 20, 1937) is an American singer, dancer, actress and comedienne.

Provine was born in Deadwood, South Dakota, USA. She appeared in many professional and amateur stage productions while attending the University of Washington. In Hollywood, she starred in The Bonnie Parker Story (1958) and The 30 Foot Bride of Candy Rock (1959), which was Lou Costello's last screen appearance.

She guest starred on the unconventional western television series Man Without a Gun, starring Rex Reason. Provine starred in two series: The Alaskans with Roger Moore (1959-60) and The Roaring Twenties (1960-1962), both on ABC. In Roaring Twenties, she played the beautiful singer Pinky Pinkham. Rex Reason co-starred with her in the series, along with Donald May, John Dehner, Mike Road, and Gary Vinson.

She made a cameo appearance in Blake Edwards' The Great Race (1965). Probably her most recognizable film role is in Stanley Kramer's It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963). She plays Emmeline Marcus Finch, the only main character not obsessed with finding the $350,000 that forms the movie's premise. Provine also starred in Good Neighbor Sam (1964), Who's Minding the Mint? (1967), and Kiss the Girls and Make Them Die (1966).

Provine married director Robert Day in 1968 and retired from acting.
