Arnold Schwarzenegger, David Lynch Among Guests at Dino De Laurentiis' Funeral
California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and first lady Maria Shriver along with filmmakers David Lynch and Baz Luhrmann are among those who attended producer Dino De Laurentiis' funeral, held Monday afternoon in downtown Los Angeles.
The two filmmakers were expected to speak during the service, which took place at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.
The Associated Press reported that many of the guests showed up in red at the request of De Laurentiis' family.
"Dino De Laurentiis did not want to be met with a sea of black at his funeral," the producer's family said Friday in a request. "Please honor Dino by wearing something red -- the color from which he drew power."
De Laurentiis, an Oscar winner for such films as La strada and Nights of Cambria, died last week in his Beverly Hills home at age 91.
Donations in honor of the late producer can be made online or via U.S. mail to the Save the Children charity.
