Gittel Enoyce "Binnie" Barnes (1903-1998), later known as Gertrude Maude Barnes, was an English actress, after starting out as a ballroom dancer and Tex McLeod's stage partner. Later she was in cabaret and revue.

She began her acting career in films in 1923, appearing in a short film made by Lee De Forest in his Phonofilm sound-on-film process. Her film career continued in Britain, then in Hollywood, until 1973, with her final role in the comedy 40 Carats. Her most famous film was probably The Private Life of Henry VIII (1933), starring Charles Laughton in the title role, with Barnes as Katherine Howard.
