Arthur Charles Miller, A.S.C. (8 July 1895 – 13 July 1970) was an acclaimed American cinematographer and a three-time Academy Award winner.


Early life

Born in Roslyn, New York, Arthur Miller began his career at the age of 13, working as an assistant to filmmaker Fred J. Balshofer. The two remained lifelong friends and in 1967 co-wrote the book about the early days of film titled Two Reels and a Crank.


In 1909, Miller was working in New York City as an assistant cameraman for the New York Motion Picture Corporation. He eventually joined Pathé Frères and although still only 19 years old, was the cinematographer for the 1914 adventure serial The Perils of Pauline. In 1932 Miller signed a long term contract with Fox Film Corporation.

Arthur Miller was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Cinematography seven times, winning it in 1942 for How Green Was My Valley, again in 1944 for The Song of Bernadette, and a third time in 1947 for Anna and the King of Siam. He retired in 1951 but remained active in the industry as president of the American Society of Cinematographers. He died in Los Angeles, California in 1970 and was interred in the Hollywood Memorial Park Cemetery.
