David Miller (November 28, 1909 – April 14, 1992) was an American film director who directed such varied films as Billy the Kid (1941) with Robert Taylor and Brian Donlevy, Flying Tigers (1943) with John Wayne, and Love Happy (1949) with the Marx Brothers.
Miller directed Lonely Are the Brave (1962) with Kirk Douglas; Emanuel Levy wrote, in 2009, that it "is the most accomplished film of David Miller, who directs with eloquent feeling for landscape and attention to character." Others feel that Miller's filmic masterpiece is his 1952 Noir thriller Sudden Fear; Sudden Fear was nominated for four Academy Awards, for Best Lead Actress (Joan Crawford); Best Supporting Actor (Jack Palance); Best Costume Design (Sheila O'Brien); and Best Cinematography (Charles Lang).
