‘Jaws’ Producer Richard Zanuck Had Died, He Was Seventy Seven!

Legendary Jaws producer Richard Zanuck had died, he was seventy seven years old. He had passed away at his home in Beverly Hills.

“In 1974, Dick Zanuck and I sat in a boat off Martha’s Vineyard and watched the mechanical shark sink to the bottom of the sea,” Spielberg said in a Friday statement. “Dick turned to me and smiled. ‘Gee, I sure hope that’s not a sign.’ That moment forged a bond between us that lasted nearly 40 years. He taught me everything I know about producing. He was one of the most honorable and loyal men of our profession and he fought tooth and nail for his directors.”

Zanuck has left behind a wife, Lili Fini Zanuck, and also four children,Virginia and Janet (with his first wife, Lili Gentle) and Harrison and Dean (with his second wife, actress Linda Harrison.)
