Biography by Hal Erickson

An art director from the 1920s, Gordon Wiles hit his stride at the Fox Studios in the 1930s, winning an Academy Award for Transatlantic (1931). Wiles later served as production designer for such independently produced 1940s films as Albert Lewin's The Moon and Sixpence (1942) and Joseph H. Lewis' Gun Crazy (1949). From 1936 to 1973, Wiles sporadically tried his hand at directing; perhaps his best theatrical-feature effort was Prison Train (1939), a fascinating low-budget melodrama that seems to be more designed than directed.
