BIOGRAPHY

One of Hollywood's most distinguished art directors, with MGM from 1923 to 1930 and 20th Century-Fox (as head of the art department) from 1939 to 1943. During his collaboration with Erich von Stroheim in the 1920s, Day developed a distinctive, realist style which he put to outstanding use in numerous subsequent films and which earned him seven Academy Awards.
