Robert Walter Quarry (born November 3, 1925) is an American actor. He is known for his horror film roles.

Quarry was born in Santa Rosa, California, the son of Mable and Paul Quarry, a doctor. [ [ ROBERT_QUARRY_PG_03 ] ] His films include "Count Yorga, Vampire" (1970), its sequel "The Return of Count Yorga" (1971), and "Dr. Phibes Rises Again" (1972), in which he was pitted against Vincent Price in a race to find the mythical elixir of eternal life. Price did not care for his co-star - once, when Quarry was singing in his dressing room during the making of "Dr Phibes Rises Again", he said to Price, "You didn't know I could sing did you?" and Price replied: "Well I knew you couldn't act." American International Pictures had plans for Quarry to succeed Price, but the decline in the company's fortunes, and old style horror films falling out of fashion, meant that it never happened. Quarry's career was further set back by a road accident that resulted in serious facial injuries, but he made several memorable guest appearances on TV shows, notably the 1977 Rockford Files episode, "Requiem For a Funny Box," as Lee Russo.
