Judith Barrett (February 2, 1914 – March 10, 2000), also known as Nancy Dover, was an American film actress of the late 1920s and through the 1930s, up until 1940.

Born and raised in Arlington, Texas, Barrett started her film career in 1928, starring in The Stock Exchange opposite Bobby Vernon. In 1929 she starred in five films, and made a successful transition to "talking films". From 1928 to 1933 she was billed as "Nancy Dover", and from 1930 to 1933 she appeared in nine films, all credited. In 1933 she only appeared in one film, Marriage Humor opposite Harry Langdon and Vernon Dent. She would not have another role until 1936, when she starred in the crime drama Yellowstone opposite Henry Hunter, and alongside Ralph Morgan and Alan Hale. It was the first film that she was billed as "Judith Barrett". She appeared in two films that year, and five in 1937, one of which was her first uncredited role.

From 1938 to 1940 Barrett appeared in ten films, all credited. Barrett retired from film acting following her appearance in the 1940 film Those Were the Days!, starring William Holden and Bonita Granville.

She eventually settled in Palm Desert, California, where she was residing at the time of her death on March 10, 2000.
