Fergus McDonell (6 October 1910, Ticehurst, Sussex – 3 January 1984, Norwich, Norfolk) was an English film editor and director. He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Film Editing for Odd Man Out (1947).
Discussing Private Information, one of McDonell's three films as a director, Steve Chibnall and Brian McFarlane praise his "sensitive regard for human relationships and for the ways in which the pressure of circumstance highlights aspects of character", and they note that he "had a knack for obtaining striking performances from his leading ladies".
