The producer of Chinatown and Rosemary‘s Baby passed away over the weekend, according to Variety.
Robert Evans, the prolific and infamous producer behind some of Hollywood’s greatest classics, has passed away. The former Paramount executive and production head was 89.
Hollywood is full of colorful characters, but there is only one Evans. His life proved so interesting, it was the subject of a popular and very well-received documentary, 2002’s The Kid Stays In the Picture. The documentary served as a resurgence of sorts for Evans, who had his name monogramed on his office at Paramount Studios for decades.
