Arthur Hilton (April 5, 1897 – October 15, 1979) was a British-born film editor and director.


Hilton was born in London and edited his first film in 1928. Shortly after, he immigrated to the US, where he worked on such films as the W. C. Fields classic comedies The Bank Dick (1940) and Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (1941), and Julien Duvivier’s portmanteau film Flesh and Fantasy (1943). Hilton was nominated for an Academy Award in 1946 for Best Film Editing for Robert Siodmak’s film noir The Killers.

Hilton later established himself as a director, with his film director credits including The Return of Jesse James (1950), The Big Chase (1954), and Cat-Women of the Moon (1953), the latter consider by The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction as "absurd [but] one of the most influential science-fiction films ever made.".[1] Hilton's television director credits include Lassie, Mission: Impossible, Wanted Dead or Alive, and Police Story. Hilton was recognized by American Cinema Editors for his editing work on the 1977 mini-series Washington: Behind Closed Doors.
