Emmet Dalton MC (4 March 1898 – 4 March 1978) was an Irish soldier and film producer. He served in the British Army in the First World War, reaching the rank of Major. However, on his return to Ireland he became one of the senior figures in the Dublin Brigade of the guerrilla Irish Republican Army which fought against British rule in Ireland.
He was a close associate of Michael Collins. During the Irish Civil War he held one of the highest commands in the pro-Treaty National Army but resigned his command before the war was over. He later founded a film production company and produced a number of notable pictures in the 1950s and 1960s.
