Arthur Lange (April 16, 1889 – December 7, 1956) was a United States bandleader and Tin Pan Alley composer of popular music. He composed music for over 120 films, including Grand Canary and Woman on the Run. Lange shared an Oscar nomination with Hugo Friedhofer for the film The Woman in the Window. He was nominated four times for Oscars, but did not win any.

Lange was a prolific arranger of dance band orchestrations during the 1920s. His “stock” orchestrations were in use by many bands of the day. Lange wrote “Arranging for the Modern Dance Orchestra” which was the definitive work of its day
