Noel Black (born June 30, 1937) is an American film and television director, screenwriter, and producer.[1]

Black was born in Chicago, Illinois. He won awards at the 1966 Cannes Film Festival for an 18-minute short subject filmed in 1965 called Skaterdater.[2] It had no dialogue, but used music and sound effects to advance the plot. It was nominated for an Academy Award for best short film in 1966.

He directed the 1968 film Pretty Poison,[3] and subsequently concentrated on directing for television, occasionally directing films such as Private School.[4]
