Walter A. Doniger (b. 1 July 1917, New York, New York; d. 24 November 2011, Los Angeles, California) was an American film and television director.

He was a graduate of the Harvard School of Business.

In the early 1940s, Doniger started as a scriptwriter with Universal Films. During World War II, he worked on training films for the United States Army. His knowledge of military matters was reflected in some of his later work for television and films.

After the war, Doniger worked as a screenwriter, director and producer. He specialized in hard-boiled action pictures, including prison dramas (Duffy of San Quentin, 1954, and The Steel Cage, 1954), as well as war pictures (Cease Fire!, 1953). The latter was one of the first 3-D war films.

He directed sports films, including Safe at Home! (1962, starring New York Yankee greats Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris), and the made-for-TV movie Mad Bull (1977).

In 1957, Doniger established a production company, Bettina Productions Ltd. By this time he had gravitated towards working primarily for episodic television, particularly as director of western series, such as Cheyenne (1956–57); Tombstone Territory (1957–58), Maverick, (1957), and Bat Masterson (1958–60). He also directed episodes of Highway Patrol, Men Into Space, Dick Powell Theatre, Mr. Novak, Bracken's World, Rod Serling's Night Gallery, and Owen Marshall: Counselor at Law, among others.

During the 1960s, Doniger directed 64 episodes of the popular soap opera Peyton Place. After leaving Peyton Place, Doniger worked at Universal and eventually returned to action subjects, where he was most at home. He directed several episodes of the popular crime series McCloud.

His abrasive style occasionally brought him into conflict with producers and stars, possibly precipitating his retirement from film work in 1991.

In 2010, Doniger donated some of his television memorabilia to the Cinematic Arts Library of the University of Southern California.
