Interesting. Just a week ago I was at Universal Studios and saw his parking place and office on the studio tour and thought "he's still alive?".

The passing of a great producer of films. I loved his gangster movies like The Brinks Job, and Year of the Dragon. His productions will live on. Transmitted somewhere in the cosmos when we watch.

He probably had a heart attack over the reports of his granddaughter with the disgusting John Mayer!

So sorry to hear of his passing. I met his granddaughter Giada at a book signing in 2005. She was an absolute sweet heart. Looks like we lost another great one. R.I.P. Dino
