British director/screenwriter Duncan Gibbins started out as an actor on radio and television. He also was a journalist. Before coming to the U.S. in the mid-1980s, he produced and directed documentaries for the BBC and made music videos for such groups as the Eurythmics. He made his feature-film debut in the U.S. with Fire with Fire (1986). Later Gibbins co-penned the script for Roger Spottiswoode's Third Degree Burn a made-for-cable movie in 1989. Gibbon made his final film, Case for Murder in 1993, the year he died after receiving severe third degree burns while trying to save his cat from a Southern California wildfire. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
