Sample Autograph Signature:
Dino De Laurentiis
'Prodigious Italian-American film producer. Agostino 'Dino' De Laurentiis began his career in Italy producing neorealist art films in partnership with Federico Fellini, but turned his attention in the s to the production of 'spectaculars' after the partnership ended. A slump in the Italian movie industry brought him to Hollywood in the early s where his re-make of King Kong, while financially sucessful, met with critical condemnation as farcical. De Laurentiis produced a number of successful and acclaimed films in the s and into the s, but between these successes he had a great many financial flops, and produced an abundance of schlock. By the end of s, he was generally dismissed as a has-been producer of crass and vulgar films, but his fortunes rose again in 20 with his Hannibal followed by Red Dragon, a remake of his Hannibal Lecter film Manhunter. Over his career to date, he has produced almost films including art films, camp classics, spectacles, 'blockbusters,' and popular entertainments. Overall, he has produced, financed, presented, or distributed over 0 movies and is still going strong. He has received the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and the Producers Guild of America David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures.'
