Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alfred Gilks (29 December 1891 - 6 September 1970); sometimes credited as Alf Gilks was a cinematographer from 1920 through to 1956. He worked on many silent films in the 1920s, such as Red Hair (1928) with Clara Bow and the 1926 historical epic Old Ironsides starring Esther Ralston and where he used some of the first motorised camera equipment on a production. He also worked on well known sound films such as Ruggles of Red Gap in 1935, several of the Dr. Kildare movies, and of course his Oscar-winning work on An American in Paris in 1951. His last credit was for second unit photography on John Ford's seminal The Searchers in 1956.show more
