Darryl F. Zanuck Facts
He was the prime promoter of the CinemaScope anamorphic widescreen system. Many exhibitors were afraid to make the significant investment required to install CinemaScope equipment in case it was only a short-lived fad, like 3-D. He pledged that all future 20th Century-Fox releases would be in CinemaScope (or an other compatible process).

During World War II he served as supervisor for Signal Corps training films and the photographic record of the North Africa invasion, and was awarded the Legion of Merit. After cremation, his ashes were scattered on the Pacific Ocean.

Is portrayed by Steven Vidler in Child Star: The Shirley Temple Story (2001) (TV)
