The Dino De Laurentiis Million Dollar Giveaway

28 minutes

Robertino Yanzanny was just a teenager in Puerto Rico when he fell in love with the movies and developed an admiration for super producer Dino De Laurentiis.

De Laurentiis left a huge impression in The Industry. Big successes and big flops and big risks were his standard. When Dino opened his own studio in the 1980s things did not go exactly according to plan. Then he had an idea. It involved garbage bags. 

Yanzanny helps tell the story of what it was like to work with De Laurentiis during this time and his encounter with De Laurentiis after he had died.
