Variety is reporting that Polly Platt died today.
Polly Platt, executive producer of films including “Broadcast News,” “Say Anything…” and “The War of the Roses,” producer of “Bottle Rocket” and an acclaimed production designer Oscar nominated for her work on 1983’s “Terms of Endearment,” died Wednesday in Brooklyn. She was 72 and had ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease).
She was also an executive producer of Corman’s World, and was in many ways instrumental in the film’s success. As a producer, she helped us secure many of our interview subjects. More than that she was a subject herself, and her interview turned out to be both one of the funniest and most moving. She will be missed.
