A.W. Hackel (December 18, 1882 – October 22, 1959) was an American film producer who founded Supreme Pictures in 1934.

Hackel contracted Bob Steele for 32 of his Westerns,[1] for example Alias John Law in 1935.

In 1936, Republic Pictures needed more Westerns and made a deal with Hackel who released his films through Republic.[2]

After the demise of Supreme Pictures in 1942, Hackel released through Monogram Pictures. All of his pictures were Westerns with the exception of Am I Guilty? (1940), a race film, and The Flaming Urge (1953), a crime film.
