John Miehle was born on August 7, 1902 in Los Angeles, California. Being born so close to Hollywood Miehle went to work as an assistant camera man on the 1931 movie "Delicious" starring Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell.

He then worked exclusively in the Camera and Electrical Department doing uncredited still photography on some of the best known films, such as "What Price Hollywood?," "Rain," "Little Women," "Top Hat," "Kitty Foyle," "Rope" and "Portrait of Jennie."

He photographed many of the greats as well including Constance Bennett, Joan Crawford, Irene Dunne, Ginger Rogers, Ann Harding, William Powell, Joel McCrea, Katherine Hepburn, Joan Bennett, Delores Del Rio, Randolph Scott, James Stewart, Cary Grant, Jean Arthur, Ruth Hussey, Jennifer Jones, Joseph Cotten, Ethel Barrymoore, Laraine Day, Franchot Tone, Ann Blyth, Farley Granger, and Dana Andrews.

He did many films with the great Ginger Rogers including many with Fred Astaire, and he worked on two Hitchcock films, "Rope" and "The Paradine Case."

The film "Portrait of Jennie" was a flop at the time but has become a famous classic in the fantasy romance genre. He did many fine photos for the film.

In addition, he did many publicity shots of such stars as Carole Lombard, Marilyn Monroe, and Lucille Ball.

He died at the young age of 49 on February 19, 1952 in Los Angeles, California.
