Robert Strauss (November 8 1913 – February 20 1975) was a gravel-voiced American actor.

Strauss began his career as a classical actor, appearing in "The Tempest" and "Macbeth" on Broadway in 1930. He was known best as "Stalag 17's" Stanislas "Animal" Kasava, a role he created in the original 1951 Broadway production and reprised in the 1953 film adaptation, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award. He was also in the 1955 comedy film The Seven Year Itch and in the 1956 war film "Attack!" with Jack Palance, Eddie Albert and Lee Marvin.

Additional Broadway credits include "Detective Story", "Twentieth century", and "Portofino". Following his appearance in the latter, a short-lived 1958 disaster, Strauss went on to character roles in "The Bridges at Toko-Ri", a number of low-budget films for producers like Albert Zugsmith, and became familiar to television viewers for his appearances in "The Beverly Hillbillies" and a recurring role on "Bewitched". He also appeared on "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour". His final film was in the experimental feature "The Noah".
