R.I.P.- Dino De Laurentiis

He had a hand in everything from BLUE VELVET to CONAN THE BARBARIAN; from Ingmar Bergman films to Robert Altman ones; from LA STRADA to ORCA; from BARBARELLA to Bronson. He's passed away today at the age of 91.

In tribute– here's some of the coverage I've given to De Laurentiis' films- that he's produced, executive produced, or simply presented:

MANHUNTER
THE WHITE BUFFALO
THE SHOOTIST
SILVER BULLET
MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE
DEATH WISH
BODY OF EVIDENCE
RED DRAGON
THE STONE KILLER

Nice. Yeah, he certainly was all over the map in terms of films he backed but that's what was so great about the man. He could bankroll BLUE VELVET and also a cheesy version of KING KONG or FLASH GORDON. One of the last larger-than-life movie moguls. RIP.

Yep, sad indeed.
I might watch Conan again.

R.I.P. Dino!
