Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lucien Ballard, A.S.C. (6 May 1908 - 1 October 1988) was an American cinematographer and director of photography. Born in Miami, Oklahoma, Ballard began working on films at Paramount Studios in 1929. He later joked in an interview that it was a three day party at the home of actress Clara Bow that convinced him "this is the business for me." He began his career loading trucks at Paramount, and became a camera assistant, often working for director Josef von Sternberg. Von Sternberg allowed him credit for his work on The Devil is a Woman (1935), and the two shared a Venice Film Festival award for "Best Cinematography" in 1935.show more
