Godfather producer Robert Evans passes away

Robert Evans, the legendary Hollywood producer, and Paramount chief has passed away at the age of 89, according to his publicist.

He had a hand in bringing to the screen some of the greatest films Hollywood has ever produced including The Godfather part I & II, Chinatown, Marathon Man, Black Sunday, Love Story, Rosemary’s baby, Romeo and Juliet, Catch-22 and The Cotton Club.

Evans had his charisma rivaled some of the actors who appeared in the hit films he produced. As a studio head, Evans helped resurrect Paramount Pictures in the 1960s and 1970s.

Evans seemed to have epitomized Hollywood excesses with his seven marriages, outspoken nature and freewheeling lifestyle that he documented in his 1994 memoir The Kid Stays in the Picture.

He served as production chief at Paramount for eight years. In an interview with The New York Times, Evans said that he “was a bad executive” partially because he “would get very involved with just a few pictures, and I let a lot of other things pass”. He did the same as an independent producer, working on films including Marathon Man, Urban Cowboy, and The Cotton Club.

Evans was also married to actress Sharon Hugueny, actress Camilla Sparv, former Miss America Phyllis George, former Versace model Leslie Ann Woodward, Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg and socialite Victoria White O’Gara.
