RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

Gibbons was appointed head of the art department at the newly formed MGM in 1924, following short stints with Thomas Edison and the independent Goldwyn company. He was a key figure in the importation into America of Art Deco stylistics and a major force behind the lavish MGM "look", working as either art supervisor or art director for the next 30 years. He is also credited with designing the Oscar statuette, which he himself won 11 times for design and once (in 1950) "for consistent excellence." Married to actress Dolores del Rio from 1930 to 1941.
