Herman Schlom (1904–1983) was a film producer who first received film credit as an assistant director for Dracula in 1931. He worked primarily for Republic Pictures then RKO Pictures. Some of Schlom's notable films, as a producer, include the crime thrillers The Devil Thumbs a Ride (1947), Born to Kill (1947), Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome (1947) and Follow Me Quietly (1949).
He was the producer of a number of Tim Holt westerns. According to Richard Martin "“Herman was one of RKO’s best B producers. He could get a lot of quality into a picture for a few dollars. He lived with the pictures he was producing twenty-four hours a day, trying to refine them, make them better. He fought for excellent music backgrounds and outstanding photography."
He was also a producer of the 1956–1957 western television series My Friend Flicka, starring Johnny Washbrook, Gene Evans, Anita Louise, and Frank Ferguson.
