    Roman Freulich was a Polish-born photographer. At age 14 he emigrated to the United States. In the mid- 1920s after Freulich moved to Hollywood, he became a still photographer at Universal. He remained at Universal until 1944 when he was offered a position at Republic Studios as head of its still department. In the late 1950s, after Republic ceased production, Freulich freelanced, mostly for United Artists, until the mid-1960s. In 1941, 1942, 1944, and 1947 he won awards at the Hollywood Studio Still Photography Show, sponsored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
