Early career

Stradling was born in Newark, New Jersey (some sources suggest Nesen, Germany,[1] or England),[2] the nephew of cameraman Walter Stradling (died 1918) who had worked with Mary Pickford. Confined to two-reelers in Hollywood, he left for France and Germany in the early 1930s. He made contributions to several Jacques Feyder films, Le Grand Jeu (1934), La Kermesse héroïque (Carnival in Flanders) (1935), Die Klugen Frauen (1936) and Knight Without Armour (1937), his first under producer Alexander Korda in England. Other English films include Action for Slander (1937), The Divorce of Lady X (1938), South Riding, The Citadel (1938), Pygmalion (1938), The Lion Has Wings, Jamaica Inn (1939), Q Planes (1939).

During his career, he photographed Marlene Dietrich, Vivien Leigh, Katharine Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn, Jean Simmons, Esther Williams, Lucille Ball, Hedy Lamarr, Rosalind Russell, Kim Novak, Judy Garland, and Barbra Streisand.
