Iconic Italian film producer Dino De Laurentiis died at age 91 in Beverly Hills, reports Bloomberg. After building a career in his native Italy (where he produced hits like Federico Fellini’s 1957 Best Foreign Language Oscar winner La Strada), De Laurentiis came to Hollywood and earned a reputation for packaging big-budget spectacles like Three Days of the Condor (1975), Conan the Barbarian (1982), and Dune (1984). Although he never took home a Best Picture Oscar, De Laurentiis did receive the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award from the Academy in 2001. He is survived by relatives including his granddaughter, celebrity chef Giada de Laurentiis.
