William V. Mong (June 25, 1875 – December 10, 1940)[1] was an American film actor, screenwriter and director. He appeared in almost 200 films between 1910 and 1939.[citation needed] His directing (1911–1918) and screenwriting (1911–1922) were mostly for short films.

He was born June 25, 1875, in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania,[2] and married Esme Warde.[3] He started out as a vaudeville and stage actor, appearing in plays in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York City. He made his film debut in the 1910 film A Connecticut Yankee.[3]

Mong fell ill in 1938 and stopped acting. He lingered two years,[citation needed] and then died on December 10, 1940,[4] in Studio City, California. He was interred at Grand View Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale, California.[2]
