oh wow - he lived a long life and he did produce some great and a lot of not-so great movies. RIP Dino.
Thought he was already dead, but have a good rest.
One of the last great movie moguls… Sad news.
So many films
He produced three Spaghetti Westerns: “A Man Called Sledge”, “The Deserter” and “Chino”. RIP
I think Navajo Joe was also produced by him
He produced one of my favorites - Danger: Diabolik.
Too bad. Didn’t know he was so old. RIP
I saw this when I was on imdb this morning…if I recall correctly from the interview on the BU Django DVD that this was the guy who discovered Franco Nero. I may be wrong but I recognized the name from that interview with Nero.
This is very sad. Has has been mentioned, he was the last great movie mogul.
Indeed, I was saddened by the news. RIP.
