'Godfather' cinematographer Gordon Willis dies

Gordon Willis, one of Hollywood’s most celebrated and influential cinematographers, nicknamed “The Prince of Darkness” for his subtle but indelible touch on such definitive 1970s releases as “The Godfather,” ”Annie Hall” and “All the President’s Men,” has died. He was 82.

Suzanne Berestecky of the Chapman Cole & Gleason funeral home in Falmouth confirmed Monday that he died and that the home is handling arrangements. Details on Willis’ death were not immediately available.

Willis was nicknamed The Prince of Darkness for his subtle but indelible touch on such definitive 1970s releases as “The Godfather,” ”Annie Hall” and “All the President’s Men.” He retired after the 1997 movie “The Devil’s Own.”

One of the 20th century’s greatest artists.

Happy Birthday to Robert Johnson (1911-1938), one of the most influential blues musicians of all time! He popularized blues standards like “Sweet Home Chicago” and “I Believe I’ll Dust My Broom”.
Although he died in near-obscurity, his legend grew as time passed. He was rumored to have had webbed fingers and to have been able to play any song perfectly after hearing it just once. He was even said to have sold his soul to the Devil at “The Crossroads” near Clarksville, Mississippi.
