In an industry that's still sadly male-skewed, as far as executives, producers, screenwriters and directors go, it would take quite a fight for a female producer to be behind a classic conspiracy thriller, or one of the biggest romantic-comedies of all time, or a billion-dollar superhero franchise, or the Academy Awards, or a series of giant charity telethons, or become the head of a major studio sub-division. Laura Ziskin did all of this, and we're sad to report that the producer and executive passed away yesterday, at the age of 61.
