Dale H. "Ted" Tetzlaff (3 June 1903, Los Angeles, California – 7 January 1995, Sausalito, California) was an Academy Award-nominated Hollywood cinematographer active in the 1930s and 1940s.


Tetzlaff was particularly favored by the actress Carole Lombard, whom he photographed in 10 films.[1]

After World War II service as a US Army Major, he became a film director, and directed about a dozen films from 1947 to 1957, most notably the film noir classic The Window (1949).

His father was racecar driver and film stuntman Teddy Tetzlaff (1883–1929).
