The Art Directors Guild (ADG, IATSE Local 800) announced today that Legendary Production Designer and Art Director Terence Marsh (Doctor Zhivago, Shawshank Redemption) and pioneering silent film art director, costume designer, writer, dancer, and occasional actress Natacha Rambova (Salomé, A Doll’s House) will be inducted into the ADG Hall of Fame for their extraordinary contributions to the art of visual storytelling. The ceremony will take place at the 27th Annual Art Directors Guild Excellence in Production Design Awards on Saturday February 18, 2023, at the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown. Announcing the honors were Guild President Nelson Coates, ADG, and Awards Producers Michael Allen Glover, ADG and Megan Elizabeth Bell, ADG.

Said Coates, “We are so humbled to induct luminaries Terence Marsh and Natasha Rambova into the ADG Hall of Fame, to join the trailblazers of our Guild. The paths of design excellence they forged and the amazing bodies of work they created, have made an indelible mark on the film industry, and will continue to inspire viewers and narrative designers for years to come.”

An esteemed and prolific Production Designer and Art Director, Terence Marsh was central to creating the look and feel of a long list of preeminent films that includes Lawrence of Arabia, A Man for All SeasonsThe Green Mile and The Hunt for Red October. Over the course of his fifty-year career, Marsh collaborated with a veritable who’s who of acclaimed directors and filmmakers: David Lean, John Huston, Mel Brooks, Richard Attenborough, Sydney Pollack, Frank Darabont and Gene Wilder among them, and worked on seven films that were nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. He earned two shared Academy Awards for art directing David Lean’s Dr. Zhivago and Carol Reed’s Oliver! and was nominated the same number of times for his work as a production designer on Mary, Queen of Scots and Scrooge. Marsh was also nominated for three BAFTA Awards for The Hunt for Red October, A Bridge Too Far and Scrooge.

Maverick film artist and historian Natacha Rambova was one of the first women to work as an art director in silent film Hollywood, designing sets that combined meticulous period research with a modern flair for design. She created the costumes for the films she art directed, producing a holistic, avant-garde tableau. Rambova’s first enduring creative partnership was with director Alla Nazimova and she designed all the sets and costumes for Aphrodite (unreleased because of censorship fears), CamilleA Doll’s House and Salome. Rambova’s collaborations with then-husband actor Rudolph Valentino forged her reputation. The pair made seven films together including Monsieur Beaucaire and A Sainted Devil until their divorce.

After producing When Love Grows Cold and producing, writing, designing and acting in What Price Beauty? Rambova abandoned Hollywood for a career in fashion and Egyptology because of studio and tabloid machinations that undermined her reputation. Her trailblazing talent should have guaranteed her an important place in film history, but her resume is plagued by theft of work, credit omissions, and lost projects.
