RIP Gene Luotto

From John Gayford comes word on the death of screenwriter, dubbing director Gene Luotto. "To all of you who were here in Rome, caught up in the dubbing racket, today is a sad day. Gene Luotto, daddy of us all, the one who taught us how to dub, has passed away. That'll never sound right, even if you pull it up two frames. I will never forget his kindness and his gentle, effective directing technique. He will be remembered with love and respect. Ciao, Gene." 10/21/2011.

Gene is the father of actors Steve Luotto and Andy Luotto.
