Choreographer Jacqui Landrum dies

Eorked with husband on 'Doors,' 'Lebowski'

Jacqui Landrum, who teamed with her husband to choreograph many Hollywood films, has died. She was 64.

Landrum died of cancer Aug. 29 in Los Angeles, her husband Bill Landrum told the Los Angeles Times. The Landrums coordinated giant, writhing crowds and choreographed gyrating rockers in the biopics “Great Balls of Fire” and “The Doors.”

The couple also worked on several Coen brothers films including “Barton Fink” and “The Big Lebowski,” which featured a Busby Berkeley-inspired dance number set in a surreal bowling alley with Vikings, showgirls in bowling-pin hats and Saddam Hussein.

Born Jacqui Levy in Los Angeles on Dec. 10, 1943, Levy graduated from Fairfax High School and first worked as a choreographer for a 1960s TV show called “Hollywood a Go-Go.”

She met her husband in 1969, and the pair worked as a team for 40 years. They were nominated for an Emmy for their work on the Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepherd show “Moonlighting” in 1987.
