RIP Dino De Laurentiis

It’s hard to imagine a man with a longer and more varied career than Dino De Laurentiis.  He produced his first film in 1941 and helped bring us La Strada, Nights of Cabiria, Barbarella, Serpico, The Dead Zone, Dune, and Hannibal (amongst MANY others).  I first learned about him from his involvement with the Evil Dead franchise and anyone involved with those films gets a lifetime pass from me.  So cheers to you, Mr. De Laurentiis.  I’ll have a drink in your honor tonight!
