Tony Scott Dies

August 20, 2012 by  

Tony Scott Dies, Director-producer Tony Scott, who apparently committed suicide Sunday in San Pedro at age 68, left behind a lengthy filmography. One of the first directors to make the transition from commercials to features, he helmed movies including “Top Gun,” “Beverly Hills Cop II” and “Unstoppable” and served as producer or executive producer on many other movies, including this summer’s “Prometheus,” directed by his older brother, Ridley Scott.

Here’s a look back at some of his best-known works, with clips where available.

Tony Scott was hardly a hot commodity in Hollywood when he landed the director’s gig for this now-classic starring Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer and Meg Ryan about the Navy’s crack fighter pilot program at San Diego’s Miramar Naval Base. Despite middling reviews – Times critic Michael Wilmington called it an “empty-headed technological marvel” — the movie grossed $176 million at the domestic box office – or more than $380 million in today’s dollars.
