Prolific American screenwriter of the 1930s and 40s whose varied credits include the blistering indictment of prison conditions "I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang" (1932), the fine Kay Francis sudser "The House on 56th Street" (1933), the Frank Borzage-directed drama "Disputed Passage" (1939), the uneven but intriguing Ginger Rogers-Cary Grant WWII comedy-drama "Once Upon a Honeymoon" (1942) and the complex film noir with flashbacks nested like Chinese boxes within each other, "The Locket" (1946). Gibney won Oscars for telling "The Story of Louis Pasteur" (1936), the first of Warner Brothers prestige biopics of the mid-1930s which starred Paul Muni. He also served as president of the Screen Writers Guild from 1930-41 and 1947-48 and lent his writing talents to TV and theatrical plays and operatic librettos as well. He also produced a film he also wrote for the screen, "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay" (1944).
