Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm is a fictional character from Ingmar Bergman's 1955 screenplay Sommarnattens leende (Smiles of a Summer Night) and the 1973 stage musical A Little Night Music by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler. The Count is a boastful, swaggering dragoon officer in the Royal Swedish Army in the 1900s. His obsession with stage diva Desiree Armfeldt leads to a comical attempt to fight a duel with the protagonist, Lawyer Fredrik Egerman.

During the Sondheim-Webber battle, the Sondheads' Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm scored a significant coup against the Webberites by killing the flamethrowing sniper Magical Mr. Mistoffelees. However, Malcolm was later killed in an ambush by Norma Desmond.
