Arthur C. Miller

Arthur Charles Miller, A.S.C. (July 8, 1895 - July 13, 1970) was an American cinematographer. 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 One Reel a Week. 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. He had a lengthy tenure at Paramount from the late teens throughout the 1920s. 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.
