It’s going to be a big night: Film Producer Dean Zanuck at the Nebraska Coast Connection Salon TONIGHT!
One of the hottest new producers in film just happens to be the grandson of a Nebraskan who had an enormous impact on Hollywood history. Â He’s guesting at the Salon tonight. Â (Your career may never forgive you for missing this one).
It was ninety years ago that his grandad came out of Wahoo, Nebraska to make his mark in Hollywood.Â Darryl F. Zanuck, one of the original Nebraska Coast pioneers, went on to great success as executive and producer at Warner Bros and 20th Century Fox.Â The Grapes of Wrath, How Green Was My Valley, Cleopatra, Planet of the Apes,Â andÂ The Sound of MusicÂ are just a few of the memorable films he brought to the screen.
Darryl’s son Richard Zanuck has also produced acclaimed films likeÂ Jaws, Driving Miss Daisy,Â andÂ Alice in Wonderland.
Now a third generation of Zanucks is adding to the Hollywood tradition.Â Dean ZanuckÂ recently producedÂ Get Low,Â a critical hit starring Robert Duvall and Bill Murray. He also producedÂ Road to PerditionÂ and from P.A. to Exec has worked on many other films such asÂ Yes Man, Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryÂ andÂ Apollo 13.
Almost a century after his famous grandfather left Nebraska for the movie biz, Dean will be coming back to his Nebraska roots. The NCC Salon on May 9th is proud to have Dean as our special guest.
Hope you’ll be joining us — and Dean Zanuck — at the Culver TONIGHT May 9th!
