HILLEL ITALIE, The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — He was a small man who dreamed big, hit the highest heights and failed like few others.

The Academy Award-winning legend of the Italian New Wave and producer of "Serpico" and "Barbarella" who helped revolutionize the way movies are bankrolled and helped personify the no-limits life of a cinematic king, died Wednesday night at the age of 91 in Beverly Hills.
