"Jaws" Producer Richard Zanuck Dead at 77

Posted: July 13th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Jaws" Producer Richard Zanuck Dead at 77Submit Comment
Richard D. Zanuck, producer of such Oscar-winners as "The Sting" and "Driving Miss Daisy," as well as such blockbusters as "Jaws," "The Verdict" and "Cocoon," has died at age 77 of a heart attack. More recently, Zanuck produced Tim Burton’s "Alice in Wonderland" and "The Book of Eli."

Regarded as one of the more progressive producers in Hollywood, Zanuck was partnered with his wife, Lili Fini Zanuck, in the Zanuck Company. Their first production was "Driving Miss Daisy." That Oscar-winning film also received several other top-film honors - a Golden Globe Award, The National Board of Review Award and "Producer of the Year" honors from the Producers Guild of America.

At age 28, Zanuck became the youngest studio chief in history when he was appointed head of 20th Century Fox in 1962. During his eight years at the helm, the studio won an impressive 159 Oscar nominations. Three of the films – "The Sound of Music," "Patton" "The French Connection" – won Best Picture Oscars. Other studio successes under Zanuck’s tenure included: "The Planet of the Apes," "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" and "M*A*S*H."

He is survived by his wife Lili Fini Zanuck, sons Harrison and Dean and nine grandchildren.
