Biroc worked his way up from studio office boy to become an assistant to cinematographer George Folsey and co-photographed his first feature, "It's a Wonderful Life," in 1946. He often collaborated with Samuel Fuller and Robert Aldrich and did extensive work in TV. Biroc photographed one of the first TV programs to shoot on film, rather than using the kinescope process--1951's "The Honeymoon Is Over"--and won an Emmy for "Brian's Song" (1971). Three years later, he shared an Oscar for Irwin Allen's disaster film "The Towering Inferno" (1974). In 1989, Biroc was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Cinematographers.
