Vladimir Valentinovich Menshov (17 September 1939 – 5 July 2021) was a Soviet and Russian actor and film director. He was noted for depicting the Russian everyman and working class life in his films.

Although his output as an actor outnumbers his output as a director, he was best known for the five films he directed, the most famous of which is the 1979 melodrama Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears, which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Actress Vera Alentova, who starred in the film, is the mother of Vladimir Menshov's daughter Yuliya Menshova.
