In Memoriam: John Daly

Sad news for for those movie fans whose faves may include titles as different as The Terminator, Oliver Stone's Platoon, or Bernardo Bertolucci's The Last Emperor (recently resurrected in a sumptuous Criterion package):

John Daly, who helped back those movies and more — and who co-founded Hemdale with actor David Hemminngs — has died at the age of 71.

Both the BBC and Newsday have a little more about the producer's quite passing.

Thank you, sir, for all you have done.
