    That sucks! Dino did some of the most AWESOME schlock in the 70's and 80's. Flash Gordon was fantastic and I really liked his take on King Kong (Waaaaay better than Jackson's remake, even with it's problems), and of course Conan was fucking brilliant!


    Time to go find my copy of Orca and put it on in tribute. . . .

    His was a common name from my youth, and no wonder. Look at all of the films he produced:

    What's weird is, I was a little worried about Dino when I saw his last name as a trending topic on Yahoo yesterday, but it turned out to be about his granddaughter's love life.

    "...when Jaws die, nobody cry.. when my Kong die, everybody cry!"


    Sad news, Dino produced some of the best guilty pleasure movies out there.
