Peter Yates Has Died

Sad news.  The British, Oscar-nominated director of Bullit, The Deep, The Dresser, and cycling classic Breaking Away (among others, some less classic), Peter Yates, has died, at 81.  He was also director of the peculiarly titled Mother, Jugs & Speed, a so-called M*A*S*H on wheels that starred Racquel Welch, Harvey Keitel, and Bill Cosby, quite a cast!  Photo above is of Ms. Bissett, on set for The Deep, the semi-scandalous film which launched a thousand skimpy "wet t-shirt contests".
