Cinematographer Bruce Surtees Dies

Well-loved cinematographer, Bruce Surtees, has died aged 74, according to recent media reports.
Surtees worked on films such as Dirty Harry and Beverly Hills Cop but is perhaps best know for his work with Clint Eastwood. The pair made 14 films together including the classic Escape from Alcatraz.
He also helped shoot such stars as John Wayne, Laurence Olivier and Tom Cruise and was nominated for an Academy Award in 1974 for his work on Lenny.
He followed in the footsteps of his father, Robert L. Surtees, also a cinematographer who won Academy Awards three times, for the films King Solomon's Mines, The Bad and the Beautiful and the 1959 version of Ben Hur.
