Saul Zaentz, known for producing intelligent, award-winning adaptations of novels, died on Friday at his San Francisco home. He was 92. Zaentz had won Best Picture Academy Awards three times over the years—for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Amadeus, and The English Patient—and was awarded the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award in 1996. Other films he produced included Ralph Bakshi’s 1978 animated version of The Lord of the Rings, Peter Weir’s The Mosquito Coast, and the Daniel Day-Lewis-starring adaptation of The Unbearable Lightness of Being.
