George Berthold Samuelson (6 July 1889 – 17 April 1947)[1] was a director and film producer.

Born in Southport, Lancashire, Samuelson was the youngest son of Henschel and Bertha Samuelson, tobacconists originally from Prussia.[2] By 1891, his mother was widowed and was carrying on the business.[3]

Samuelson had an extensive film career and was the creator of Southall Studios, one of the earliest film production companies in the United Kingdom. He also ran G. B. Samuelson Productions from 1914 to 1933.

He was the brother of Julian and Lauri Wylie and the father of Sir Sydney Samuelson.
