Ronald Neame, who directed movies including "The Poseidon Adventure" and "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie," died Wednesday in Los Angeles. He was 99.
The cause was complications from a fall, grandson Gareth Neame told the New York Times.
Neame worked in various areas of the movie business, including writing and even visual effects.
He was nominated for three Oscars: In 1947 and 1948, he shared screenwriting nominations with David Lean and Anthony Havelock-Allan for, respectively, "Brief Encounter" and "Great Expectations." Previously he was nominated for special effects on "One of Our Aircraft Is Missing" (with C.C. Stevens) for sound.
