Penthouse Founder Bob Guccione Dead at 79

Posted: October 21st, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Penthouse Founder Bob Guccione Dead at 79Submit Comment
Penthouse magazine founder and longtime editor-in-chief Bob Guccione has died at the age of 79. A statement issued by the Guccione family says he died at at Plano Specialty Hospital in Plano, TX. The publisher had battled lung cancer for several years.

Guccione launched Penthouse in the US in 1969 as a more explicit competitor to Playboy. The magazine proved hugely successful and by 1982 Forbes was estimating that Guccione had a net worth of $400 million. In September 1984, an issue of Penthouse which featured nude photographs of reigning Miss America Vanessa Williams sold almost 6 million copies. But over the next two decades, the magazine's circulation declined and in 2004 Guccione lost ownership of the magazine.

Guccione also produced and financed the hugely controversial film 1979 film "Caligula." The movie starred Malcolm McDowell, Helen Mirren, and Peter O’Toole and featured explicit sex scenes which Guccione himself directed.

Caligula, nasty mother f*cker. I havn't seen it, but since it is sexually explicit, i am sure it must be realistic and accurate

Hugh Hefner is probably planning to f*ck his latest girlfriends on top of the fresh mound over Bob's coffin.

The fact that Bob died in Texas makes sense.

Rick Perry killed off more sex offenders with the death penalty than the pope played the shell game with priests who played pig in a poke with altar boys.
