Saul Zaentz. R. I. P.

The Hollywood Reporter: He won Oscars for producing three best picture winners -- "One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest," "Amadeus" and "The English Patient" -- after a great career with Fantasy Records and feuds with John Fogerty.  

Hat tip to Doc Quatermass.

He also stole the logo from THE MAGAZINE OF FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION for the first Fantasy Records logo. When told to knock that off, he used the name Galaxy for another record line, but didn't try to filch the logo from GALAXY magazine...
