Vernon Campbell Sewell (4 July 1903 – 21 June 2001) was a British film director, screenwriter, producer, writer and, briefly, an actor.[1][2]

Sewell was born in London, England,[3] and was educated at Marlborough College. He directed more than 30 films during his career, starting with Morgenrot (1933) and ending with Burke & Hare (1971). He worked chiefly in B-movies, some of which were, according to the BFI Screenonline, "well above the usual cut-price standards of film-making at this level."[1]

He was married to Joan Carol, though the year of their marriage or how the marriage came to end is not known.[1]

Vernon Sewell died on 21 June 2001 in Durban, South Africa, at age 97.[4]
