    Default Dino De Laurentiis (1919-2010)

    Famed film producer Dino De Laurentiis, who was behind Serpico, War and Peace and Dune, has died. He was 91.

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0209569/

    De Laurentiis, who has been making movies for nearly 70 years, passed away inside his Beverly Hills home, where lived with his third wife, Martha. He has six daughters; his only son, Federico, died in a 1981 plane crash. His granddaughter, Giada, is a chef on the Food Network.

    “Cinema has lost one of its greats," Rome Film Festival founder Walter Veltroni told the AFP. "The name of Dino De Laurentiis is tied to the history of cinema."

    De Laurentiis was born to pasta-maker parents on Aug. 8, 1919 in Torre Annunziata, which is near Naples, but moved to the U.S. in the 1960s.

    De Laurentiis entered the film industry at age 20, and went on to produce more than 500 movies, including those by Federico Fellini and Roberto Rossellini.

    He won his first Oscar in 1956 for Fellini's La Strada, and another in 1957 for Nights of Cabiria. He was nominated at least 30 more times, and received the Irving G.Thalberg Memorial Award in 2001 at the Oscars for demonstrating a "consistently high quality of motion picture production," according to Bloomberg.

    “I’ve been very lucky in my long life,” De Laurentiis said afterward. “On three continents, in diverse cultures, through happy moments, not-so-happy moments, and moments as marvelous as this one, I’ve had the privilege of working with the cinema’s greatest masters.”

    The Venice Film Festival honored him with a lifetime achievement award in 2003.

    Great skits on the old SNL poking fun at him. His early films were great.RIP

    Yeah, yeah...I know it's not his greatest technical or artistic achievement nor is it his most celebrated, but I enjoy this Dino De Laurentiis film more than any other.



    R.I.P., Mr. De Laurentiis. Thank you for what you've done.

    My appreciation for him comes in the form of being in love with his most beautiful granddaughter, Giada De Laurentiis
