Bedara Kannappa (Kannada: ಬೇಡರ ಕಣ್ಣಪ್ಪ) is a 1954 Indian Kannada film directed by H. L. N. Simha and written by G. V. Iyer. It stars Pandari Bai and Rajkumar in lead roles. Bedara Kannappa started as a play produced by the Gubbi Veeranna Nataka Company before it became a Kannada film.

It marked the debut of Narasimharaju, who went on to be named among Kannada cinema's finest actors, alongside Rajkumar. It was the first film of kannada legendary actress Pandari Bai.
