Jack Milton Warner (1916 – April 1, 1995) was an American film producer.
Jack M. Warner was born on March 27, 1916. His father was Jack L. Warner (1892–1978), co-founder of Warner Bros., alongside his uncles, Harry Warner (1881–1958), Albert Warner (1884–1967) and Sam Warner (1887–1927).
Warner worked in the short-subject department of the Warner Brothers studio in Burbank, California. He joined the Warner Brothers distribution company after World War II, and later became a producer. Among the early films he produced were The Hasty Heart (1949), starring Richard Todd and Ronald Reagan, The Admiral Was a Lady and The Man Who Cheated Himself (1950) starring Lee J. Cobb and Jane Wyatt.
Warner was dismissed by his father in 1958. The two had become estranged after the elder Warner divorced his first wife, Irma, Jack Jr.'s mother. Jack Jr. was never reconciled to his father's new wife Ann. The son learned from trade papers that he had lost his job. He later wrote a novel Bijou Dream based loosely on his relationship with his father, who died in 1978.
Warner married Barbara Richman in 1948, and they had a son, Jimmy, two daughters, Betsy and Debbie, and eight grandchildren, Richard, Selena, Semantha, Victor, Kenneth, Nicole, Sebastian and Nicholas.
