Educated at Ohio Wesleyan and State University of Iowa, Bill Butler served a typically long Hollywood apprenticeship before being promoted to cinematographer on the independently produced Fearless Frank. Some of the most famous of Butler's many feature-film credits are The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars and Motor Kings (1975), Jaws (1975), Grease (1978), and installments two, three, and four of Rocky. He was nominated for an Academy Award for his work on One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and has won Emmies for the TV productions Raid on Entebbe (1978) and A Streetcar Named Desire (1984). Bill Butler should not be confused with the prolific film editor of the same name.
