Alexander Salkind

Alexander Salkind (June 2, 1921 – March 8, 1997) was the second of three generations of successful international film producers.

Biography

Born in Gdańsk, Poland, his family moved to France where his father, Michael Salkind worked as a film producer. Following in his father's footsteps, he produced French films & others in Europe and Hollywood: "Austerlitz" directed by Abel Gance and "Le Procès" (The Trial) directed by Orson Welles and 1978's "Superman" starring Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder. Salkind's production, "The Three Musketeers" (1973), lead the Screen Actors Guild to issue what became known as the "Salkind Clause", which guaranteed that an actor was only expected to make one film when a contract was signed. His son, Ilya Salkind (b.1947), is also a film producer. He died in Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1997 and was buried in the Cimetière de Bagneux in the Parisian suburb of Montrouge.
