Clifford Pember (1881–1955) was a British art director notable for his set designs in British cinema and theatre. Pember worked on films during the late silent and early sound eras. In 1928 he designed the sets for Alfred Hitchcock's film Easy Virtue, adapted from the play by Noël Coward. Along with Walter Murton, Pember has been identified as belonging to the "old school" of British set designers who resisted changes brought by new modernist influences (particularly by German immigrants).[1]
