L. William O'Connell (sometimes credited as L.W. O'Connell, and nicknamed "Connie") was an American cinematographer who worked in Hollywood between 1918 and 1950 (starting during the silent era).[1] He frequently worked with directors Howard Hawks and William K. Howard.[2][3][4][5]


William was born in Chicago, Illinois, to Lewis O'Connell and Caroline Stumpf. He appears to have started his career as a cinematographer around 1918, although he left Los Angeles for a time while serving in World War I, working as an army photographer in Siberia.[6] By 1930, he was the head cameraman at Fox.[7] He married Joyce Burns, a Busby Berkeley dancing girl, and the pair had a son, Lew, together, who became a sound editor in the film industry.[8]
