Blyth Daly, also spelled Blythe Daley (December 5, 1901 – October 16, 1965) was an actress who appeared in stage productions on Broadway and who appeared in several silent and sound films. She is better known for her relationships and friendships in the underworld of the Hollywood and New York City lesbian acting community than for her acting career itself. She was the daughter of established stage actor Arnold Daly and his wife Mary Blythe.

In 1919, Frank Case, manager of the Algonquin Hotel, began hosting popular and well known members of the acting and writing community, with the group being dubbed the "Algonquin Round Table", with members including Edna Ferber, actress Tallulah Bankhead, Harpo Marx and others. Daly, never what was called an "official member" of the group, attended through her association with Bankhead, Estelle Winwood and actress Eva Le Gallienne, with the four of them being dubbed "The Four Riders of the Algonquin" due to their appearances together at the "Algonquin Round Table".

Daly was bisexual, as was Bankhead, and Le Gallienne was well known inside the acting community as being lesbian. The four became close friends and associates, but of the four, Daly's acting career never took off. She had several bit-parts in early silent films, and well into the 1930s she had small appearances, always uncredited. By the 1960s she had all but disappeared.
