Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Meredith Merle "Nick" Nicholson (11 March 1913-18 August 2005) was an American cinematographer. He worked behind the camera on low-budget films of the 1950s, hit television series in the 1960s, and comedies, dramas, and made-for-TV movies in the 1970s and 1980s. In 1953, Nicholson, along with his two sons and three other partners, created the company Panavision. While working as an administrator there, he was able to take occasional quick jobs as a cameraman. He was eventually forced out of Panavision in 1960, and devoted the rest of his career to filming. Nicholson's first job as cinematographer was working for his friend Richard Cunha on Cunha's second film She Demons in 1958. This was followed by work on Cunha's Frankenstein's Daughter (also in 1958), and Missile to the Moon in 1959. Nicholson is credited with achieving amazing results on these films, despite severe budget and time limitations. Each of these films was shot in eight days or fewer. This allowed time for Nicholson to also work on the film The Decks Ran Red at MGM.
