A three-time Oscar winning producer who became a filmaker only after becoming a Zoomer, has died.

Saul Zaentz was 92 when he passed away Friday at his apartment in San Francisco. He had been suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

He was a music producer who moved into filmmaking at the age of fifty. He produced just 10 films, but three of them won Best Picture Academy Awards: “Amadeus,” “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “The English Patient,”

Zaentz generally took on projects that were classy, but were also complex, and difficult to adapt to the screen.
