HOLLYWOOD LEADERS GATHER TO REMEMBER PRODUCER RICHARD ZANUCK
Wednesday, October 3, 2012 - The cream of Hollywood gathered together in Beverly Hills on Monday night
(01Oct12) to honor late producer Richard Zanuck.
The revered producer behind movie hits like Jaws and Alice in Wonderland passed away in July , aged 77, and his peers and friends, including
Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard and Michael Mann, attended an event at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences in Hollywood to honor his memory.
The star-studded audience watched a new documentary about Zanuck, called Don=E2=80=99t Say No Until I Finish Talking: The Story of Richard Zanuck.
Speaking about how the film turned from an insight into Zanuck's career
to a memorial piece, his longtime collaborator Spielberg said, =E2=80=9cWhat you are about to see was never intended to be what it has become. It
was never intended to be a memorial to Richard=E2=80=99s contribution to
the arts and the contributions to his family. It most likely could have been the last film he ever saw."
The movie mogul added, "Everything I have ever learned about producing,
I learned from this man. I miss him. I miss the idea of him. And for countless future filmmakers, I will miss, for them, the chance that was given to learn my craft from the best of the best. He was every director=E2=80=99s best friend. He was the cornerstone of this industry in deed and in name.=E2=80=9d
