Brother of future A.S.C. member Tony Gaudio, Eugene Gaudio was born in Cosenza in Italy on December 31, 1886. He learned photography in his father’s portrait studio and developed an interest in movies around 1905. After coming to the United States, he served as lab superintendent for IMP and the Life Photo Film Corporation. Arriving in California in 1915, Gaudio came out of the darkroom and went behind the camera for Universal. The best-known of his early efforts as a cinematographer is the 1916 production of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. He later photographed films for Metro’s top female stars, Alla Nazimova and May Allison. His final work was with actress Bessie Barriscale’s B. B. Features.

Gaudio suffered an acute attack of appendicitis and died on August 1, 1920, from general peritonitis after an operation. Gaudio is buried at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.
