John J. Mescall, A.S.C. was an American cinematographer. He photographed such silent films as Ernst Lubitschs The Student Prince in Old Heidelberg, but he is best known for his work in the 1930s at Universal Pictures, where he often worked on the films of James Whale. Mescall was famous for his elaborate, effective camera movements, in which the camera would often track completely across or around a set, or even one performer. He would not always use these kinds of camera movements, but his most famous films all have them.
