Laurence Tucker Stallings (25. novembar 1894 - 28. februar 1968) bio je američki književnik, fotograf, tekstopisac, kritičar i filmski scenarist. Kao mladić se nakon ulaska SAD u prvi svjetski rat pridružio marincima i na Zapadnom frontu sudjelovao u bitci u šumi Belleau 1918. U njoj je zadobio tešku ranu zbog čijih posljedica će mu nekoliko godina kasnije biti amputirana noga. Njegovo stradanje i ratna iskustva su snažno uticala na njegov opus, posluživši kao podloga za znamenitu dramu What Price Glory?, a autobiografski roman Plumes je poslužio kao podloga za znameniti nijemi filmski spektakl The Big Parade. Godine 1930. je objavio hvaljenu knjigu fotografija o prvom svjetskom ratu, a 1940-ih je kao scenarist surađivao sa Johnom Fordom na njegovim klasičnim filmskim vesternima.
