TheDailyBeast: Summer 2012's Lost Legends

6 of 13

Tony Scott

(June 21, 1944–Aug. 19, 2012)

“He’s a bull, and I am too,” said Ridley Scott of his brother and occasional producing partner, Tony, in an interview just before the "Top Gun" director’s death. “Nothing takes him down. We have enormous pain resistance.” The words were especially haunting, as they were released three days after Tony Scott’s apparent suicide Aug. 19 at age 68. A veteran director, Scott was best known for testosterone-fueled action flicks like "Top Gun," "True Romance," and "Unstoppable." “In many ways, Tony Scott helped define the modern Hollywood blockbuster,” says The Daily Beast’s Marlow Stern, “with his trademark hyperkinetic camera, dazzling set pieces, booming orchestral scores, and A-list star power.”
