Arne Mattsson (2 December 1919 - 28 June 1995) was a Swedish film director, born in Uppsala.

His early movies were mostly comedies. His biggest success was Hon dansade en sommar (1951, aka. One Summer of Happiness), which earned him a nomination for the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 1952 and caused some controversy at the time because it containined nudity. In 1958 he directed Mannekäng i rött, the first in a series of murder mysteries, considered by some to be a precursor of the Italian giallo films. The popularity of his mystery movies declined and in the 1970s and 1980s he made mostly low budget thrillers - some in collaboration with Mats Helge - which got mostly bad reviews.
