R.I.P. Dino

Unfortunately, I have to report another loss for the film world....
Dino De Laurentis is a name synonymous with film production.  The consummate businessman, Dino produced so many films that it would almost be easier to list the films that he didn't.  They include...
* Flash Gordon (1980)
* Conan the Barbarian
* Death Wish
* King Kong (1976)
* Barbarella
* Manhunter

While not all of his films are classics, his legacy is set.  Without him and Robert Evans, it's hard to imagine any film got made in the '70s and '80s.  He will be missed.
