Jack A. Marta (March 5, 1903 – June 26, 1991)[1] was an American cinematographer who was active in hundreds of movies throughout his life.

Steven Spielberg said: "Jack was a sweetheart. He was just a kind, gentle soul who you know had never worked that fast in his entire career; none of us had, and yet there was nothing he didn’t do or couldn’t do, and he really enjoyed himself."[2]

In 1972, Marta was nominated for the Outstanding Achievement in Cinematography for Entertainment Programming - For a Special or Feature Length Program Made for Television.[3]


Marta was cinematographer for In Old Oklahoma (1943), featuring Martha Scott, John Wayne and Albert Dekker
