Phillips graduated from Hollywood High, taking a summer job at the Grauman's Chinese Theater. Mr. Grauman liked Frank recommending him to contacts at MGM. Frank immediately took a position on the shipping department. His likeable personality soon saw him moving up through different departments until he was offered a chance as a camera loader. He worked at MGM through the 40's and early 50's on many of the studio's top films, moving from assistant to top camera operator on such films as "Singin' In the Rain" and "King Solomon's Mine". He moved from MGM to Warner Brothers as operator on George Steven's "Giant" and 20th Century Fox "House of Bambo". In the mid 1950's he became a director of photography working on "Have Gun Will Travel", "Gunsmoke" and late "Hawaii 5-0". His feature career was mostly at the Walt Disney Studios. Ultimately he won an Academy Award nomination for Disney's "The Black Hole".
