Confab to fete biz vets' careers

NEW YORK — Producers Richard D. Zanuck and David Brown will receive the 1998 Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s ShowEast convention to be held at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino in Atlantic City Oct. 19-22.

“Richard and David have produced and overseen many of the most memorable films of our generation,” said Shauna King, general chairwoman for ShowEast. “Their ability to consistently recognize what the movie audience wants to see is unique. We are honored to give them this very special award.”

Zanuck and Brown will be honored at the final gala banquet for their achievements within the entertainment industry, joining past award recipients such as Sherry Lansing, Jack Valenti, Joe Roth, Walter Dunn, Walter Matthau, Samuel Goldwyn Jr. and Wes Craven.

The duo’s collective dossier includes such hits as “Jaws,” “The Sting,” “The Verdict” and “Cocoon.” The pair most recently teamed up for “Deep Impact.”

Brown’s solo credits include the Oscar-nominated “A Few Good Men” as well as “The Player” and “Kiss the Girls.” Brown also served as executive producer for the Oscar-winning, “Driving Miss Daisy,” which Richard and Lili Zanuck produced.

At 24, Zanuck made his debut producing the feature “Compulsion,” which went on to win the best actor award at the Cannes Film Festival for the ensemble work of Orson Welles, Dean Stockwell and Bradford Dillman.

Four years later, Zanuck was named president in charge of production at 20th Century Fox, where he oversaw Oscar-winning films such as “The Sound of Music,” “Patton” and “The French Connection,” as well as “The Planet of the Apes,” “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” and “MASH.”

Zanuck and Brown previously have been honored with the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award and the David O. Selznick Lifetime Achievement Award from the Producer’s Guild of America.
