Ann E. Todd (born August 26, 1931) is an American former child actress.
Todd was born Ann Todd Phillips in 1931 in Denver, Colorado to Burrill L. and Alberta C. (née Mayfield) Phillips. She had a younger brother, Stephen (1937–1986). She is a distant relative of Mary Todd Lincoln. Due to the privations of the Great Depression, she and her younger brother were reportedly raised by her maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Ulysses Mayfield, her adoptive name was Ann Todd Mayfield. (A Newspaper Enterprise Association story published June 13, 1940, refers to Mrs. A.U. Mayfield as Todd's mother.)
In 1942, Todd was hospitalized in critical condition when blood poisoning developed after she cut her foot playing a game in her backyard.
In 1939, Todd made her acting debut in Zaza directed by George Cukor. In a career spanning over 14 years, she appeared in almost 40 movies alongside notable stars such as Ingrid Bergman, Shirley Temple, James Stewart, Bette Davis, Barbara Stanwyck and Marlene Dietrich.
Due to the similarities between her name and the then already established British actress Ann Todd, she added the initial "E." to her name. Todd was a regular in The Stu Erwin Show between 1950–53 before quitting show business for good. She became a teacher and librarian in her later life before retiring in California.
