Armando Nannuzzi Wikipedia
Armando Nannuzzi (21 September 1925 – 14 May 2001) was an Italian cinematographer and camera operator active from the 1940s until the 1990s. His career spanned six decades and over a hundred films.
Nannuzzi briefly worked in the United States in the mid-1980s, and during this period he collaborated with horror novelist Stephen King on King's directorial debut, Maximum Overdrive.
An accident occurred on 31 July 1985, during shooting in a suburb of Wilmington, North Carolina for Maximum Overdrive. A radio controlled lawnmower used in a scene went out of control and struck a block of wood used as a camera support, shooting out wood splinters which injured Nannuzzi, the director of photography on the production. As a result, Nannuzzi lost his right eye.
After the incident, Nannuzzi sued Stephen King, and 17 others, on 18 February 1987 for $18 million in damages due to unsafe working practices. The suit was settled out of court.
Other films in which he served as a cinematographer include Sandra (1965) and Frankenstein Unbound (1990). He was also a frequent collaborator of Mauro Bolognini's.
Nannuzzi died on 14 May 2001 in Ostia, Italy, although some sources say he died in April 2001. He was 75.1955
