Quebec is a 1951 American historical drama film directed by George Templeton and written by Alan Le May. Set in 1837, it stars John Drew Barrymore in a fictional account of the Patriotes Rebellion. The popular uprising sought to make Lower Canada, now Quebec, a republic independent from the British Empire, and happened around the same time as a similar revolt in Upper Canada, now Ontario.

The film was actually shot on location in Quebec, in the fashion typical of post-war Hollywood. It captured therefore local sights like the Citadelle of Quebec City, Montmorency Falls and the Quebec countryside. It also cast local actors. Quebec also features Patsy Ruth Miller, a former silent-screen star making her first screen appearance since 1931.
