Though he'd become best known in recent years for his juicy articles in Vanity Fair, Dominick Dunne offered a lot more to Hollywood than his powers of observation. In the 1970s, Dunne produced classic films like The Boys in the Band and The Panic in Needle Park, and he fathered director Griffin Dunne and actress Dominique Dunne (Poltergeist), whose murder made him a passionate advocate of victims' rights. Dunne passed away today of liver cancer at his home in Manhattan. [Vanity Fair]
