New York City-born Hickox started his film career at the age of 20 as an assistant cameraman at Manhattan's Biograph Studios and quickly became a full-time director of photography with Gloria's Romance in 1916. Following World War I, where he was a photographer for the US Naval Air Service, he relocated to Hollywood and joined the staff of First National Pictures. When the studio was absorbed by Warner Bros. in 1928, he remained there and worked on hundreds of projects until his retirement from feature films.





In television, Hickox directed multiple episodes of both I Love Lucy and The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour during their final seasons, as well as most of the episodes of The Andy Griffith Show during its lengthy run.
