Biography

Award-winning British documentary filmmaker turned successful director of American TV and film. As a fictional filmmaker, Gibson displayed an affinity for music-oriented stories. His feature directorial debut, "Breaking Glass" (1980), was a rock'n'roll rise-and-fall saga set in the London punk scene. The lavish HBO biopic "The Josephine Baker Story" (1991) netted Gibson an Emmy and a bride (his leading lady, Lynn Whitfield). His modest entry in the 1993 summer movie sweepstakes was the surprisingly successful Tina Turner biopic, "What's Love Got to Do With It" starring Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne.
