Pro­ducer Brown dies aged 93

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Read­ers who at­tended movies in the 1970s and 1980s will re­call the words “a Zanuck/Brown pro­duc­tion” with some af­fec­tion. David Brown and Richard D Zanuck pro­vided the mus­cle be­hind such hits as The Sting, Jaws and Co­coon. Richard D Zanuck is still with us, but, sadly, David Brown died on Mon­day at the age of 93. Among his most im­pres­sive achieve­ments was stay­ing mar­ried to He­len Gur­ley Brown, the rather fear­some cre­ator of the mod­ern ver­sion of Cos­mopoli­tan mag­a­zine, for a not in­con­sid­er­able 51 years.
