Just one more terrible film to the litany of Dino De Laurentiis terrible films.


Did he EVER make a good movie?? Seems all he brought to films was a cool sounding name.

Well, he did give Altman the money to make "Buffalo Bill and the Indians Or Sitting Bull's History Lesson" (1976). Not one of Altman's bests but it does have a number of interesting performances particularly from its star Paul Newman. Dino intended to bankroll "Ragtime" with Altman directing but the poor showing of "Buffalo Bill"led to Dino firing Altman from the project and putting Milos Forman at the helm instead--a semi-successful film that flopped at the box office.

well I do like Body Of Evidence and Caligula. A lot of his projects had potential, like Diabolik, I don't know, there always seems to be something missing in them or them being downright bad, to a few good straight to video quality like Body Of Evidence.
