Andrew L. Stone (July 16, 1902, Oakland, California – June 9, 1999, Los Angeles, California) was an American screenwriter, director, and producer.


Best known for his hard-hitting, realistic films, Stone frequently collaborated with his wife, editor and producer Virginia Lively Stone (credited as Virginia L. Stone). Though few of his films achieved mainstream success, Stone was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for his 1956 thriller Julie.

Stone's stories frequently featured characters called Cole, Pringle and Pope, usually in law enforcement and interchangeably played by the same actors--Jack Kruschen, Barney Phillips and John Gallaudet. Roles with those names were included in A Blueprint for Murder, The Night Holds Terror, Julie, Cry Terror!, and The Decks Ran Red.
