Robin Bean, 53, critic and longtime editor of U.K. monthly “Films & Filming,” died Feb. 2, 1992, in London, of asthma and bronchitis.
After studying at the London School of Economics, Bean joined the magazine in 1961 and edited it from 1968 to 1980, attracting notoriety with his sexually explicit picture spreads.
He later launched the monthly clone, “Films,” which ran until 1985, and “Movie Scene” (1985-86). He subsequently worked as a free-lance assistant to director Michael Winner, a neighbor.
Survived by a brother.
