David and Lisa is a 1962 American drama film directed by Frank Perry. It is based on the second story in the novel Jordi, Lisa and David by Theodore Isaac Rubin; the screenplay, written by Frank Perry's wife Eleanor Rosenfeld, tells the story of a bright young man suffering from a mental illness which, among other symptoms, has instilled a fear of being touched in him. This lands him in a residential treatment center, where he meets Lisa, a similarly ill young woman who displays a split personality.

The film earned Perry a nomination for the 1963 Academy Award for Directing and one for Eleanor Perry for her Screenplay.
