Sally Blane (July 11, 1910 – August 27, 1997) was an American actress. Blane was the sister of actresses Polly Ann Young and Loretta Young, and half-sister to actress Georgiana Young, the wife of actor Ricardo Montalban. She appeared in over 70 movies.

Born Elizabeth Jane Young in Salida, Coloradomarker, she had her film debut at the age of seven when she appeared in Sirens of the Sea in 1917. She returned to the film business as an adult in the 1920s where she played small parts in a number of silent films.

Her career continued into the 1930s when Blane appeared in a number of low-budget films, among them Once a Sinner (1930), A Dangerous Affair (1930), Arabian Knights (1931), Anabelle's Affairs (1931), Hello Everybody! (1933), City Limits (1934), Against the Law (1934) and This Is the Life (1935). Some of her scenes, including one in Annabell's Affairs, in which she appeared in skimpy lingerie with Jeanette Macdonald and Joyce Compton, were quite risqué for their day, pre-dating the industry's Hays Code that largely forbade such shots after 1934.

Blane married actor and director Norman Foster in 1935. They had two children, Robert and Gretchen.

Although her film appearances tapered off toward the late 1930s, Blane eventually appeared in over 100 films. She appeared onscreen at one time or another with all her sisters, for example with Georgina in The Story of Alexander Graham Bell (1939).

After that Blane appeared in only four more movies in small supporting roles - Fighting Mad (1939), Charlie Chan at Treasure Island (1939), La Fuga (1944) and A Bullet for Joey (1955).

Blane was a close friend of singer and actor Russ Columbo and was at his bedside when he died after a gun accident in 1934.

Blane died of cancer, as had her sisters Polly and Loretta, in 1997 at the age of 87.
