July 6, 2021

Monday, director Richard Donner died at age 91. Following his death Steven Spielberg, Mel Gibson and Danny Glover gave heartfelt tributes.

Donner directed the “Superman” film, “The Goonies,” and the “Lethal Weapon” series.

Spielberg, who wrote the story for “The Goonies” told Variety:

“Dick had such a powerful command of his movies, and was so gifted across so many genres. Being in his circle was akin to hanging out with your favorite coach, smartest professor, fiercest motivator, most endearing friend, staunchest ally, and — of course — the greatest Goonie of all. He was all kid. All heart. All the time. I can’t believe he’s gone, but his husky, hearty laugh will stay with me always.”
