Intermission/Posterized: Dino De Laurentiis 100th

Today in showbiz history the famous and sometimes infamous producerDino de Laurentiiswas born in a province of Naples,Italy.We'll take an intermission on our five or six part celebration today butwe hope you've enjoyed the write-upsonBitter Rice(1949) and the Fellini years,the creation of Dinocitta and its famous high-grossing but also-floppingThe Bible: In the Beginning(1966),and his early years in America with gritty dramas likeSerpico(1973) andDeath Wish(1974).We resume tomorrow evening with the much-derided but very successfulKing Kong(1976) which just so happened to be the film debut of Jessica Lange.
