The Kidnappers Foil was an American short film. It was made by Melton Barker numerous times between the 1930s to 1970s. Each iteration featured small-town children as actors (a different small-town in each iteration), the parents of whom paid Barker a fee in exchange for appearing in the film. The plot of the film centered on a well-to-do girl being kidnapped, and then escaping, a pair of hoodlums.

The Kidnappers Foil is the name of several American short films, made by Melton Barker between the 1930s and 1970s. Each iteration featured small-town children as actors (a different small-town in each version), the parents of whom paid Barker a fee in exchange for appearing in the film. Although the film was made dozens, perhaps hundreds, of times, only a few versions survive. The Texas Archive of the Moving Image holds a collection of these itinerant films and hosts Internet resources for those who appeared in them as children. The surviving copies were added as a group to the National Film Registry in 2012 being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" and recommended for preservation.
