Darryl Francis Zanuck (September 5, 1902  December 22, 1979) was an American film producer and studio executive; he earlier contributed stories for films starting in the silent era. He played a major part in the Hollywood studio system as one of its longest survivors (the length of his career was rivaled only by that of Adolph Zukor).[1] He produced three films that won the Academy Award for Best Picture during his tenure.
