David Brown, 1916-2010

Gregory Peck starred in "MacArthur" in 1977, which was produced by Brown and Zanuck, right.
Although I never met David Brown, the Oscar-winning producer of The Sting, Jaws, and Cocoon who has died aged 93, I knew him by reputation. He was known as a gentlemen producer and together with his good friend and producing partner Richard Zanuck, the pair had great taste in material, a nose for talent and exhibited a real passion for movies and people. Here's the LA Times' tribute.
