RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

One of the most influential designers in the history of cinema and one of the first to earn the title of "production designer" (i.e. the individual responsible for coordinating all the design-related elements of a film including sets, costumes, etc.). Menzies' artistry encompassed everything from the opulent appointments of "Gone With the Wind" (1939) to the cramped, shadowy interiors of Anthony Mann's "Reign of Terror" (1949). His directorial career was relatively undistinguished, one exception being the landmark sci-fi drama, "Things to Come" (1936). Tobe Hooper's 1986 remake of "Invaders from Mars" (1953) used some of Menzies' original designs for the project.
