Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Began his film career at age 15 and graduated to director of photography in 1933. Although Krasner had shot nearly 90 films in nearly all genres before the end of WWII, it was in the post-war period that Krasner distinguished himself as a highly versatile cinematographer. He is best remembered for his neorealist-influenced, black-and-white work in the late 40s (especially the Fritz Lang's noir thrillers "The Woman in the Window" 1944 and "Scarlet Street" 1945 and the stark fight picture "The Set Up" 1949), the Bette Davis classic "All About Eve" (1950), and his glossy CinemaScope compositions--particularly his collaborations with Vincente Minnelli--in the mid-50s.
