The American director Gene Deitch, one of the creators of several episodes of the famous animated series "Tom and Jerry", died at the age of 95, in his home in Prague. The death occurred Thursday night through Friday, his press officer announced.

Who was Gene Deitch
Gene Deitch was born on August 8, 1924 in Chicago. He created the animated series "Tom Terrific" and the movie "Sidney's Family Tree" was nominated for an Oscar in 1958.
Two years later, in 1960, Gene Deitch won the grand prize in the category of best animated short film with the movie "Munro". The director was nominated in the same category twice in 1964 with the films "Here's Nudnik" and "How to Avoid Friendship."
Gene Deitch arrived in Prague in 1959 and did not plan to stay longer than 10 days. But fate had other plans for him. The American falls in love with his future wife, Zdenka, and decides to stay in the Czechoslovak capital. But he continues his work beyond the Iron Curtain, in Eastern Europe, in 13 episodes of the famous animation Tom and Jery, the world's most beloved cartoon. At the same time, he works on several episodes of Popeye the Sailor.
Because he came in contact with everything that life means in communism, because he really began to understand what it means to live in Eastern Europe, Gene publishes his memoirs in his book "From Love to Prague".
In 2004 he received the Winsor McCay Award for his entire career.

A film about the singer's life is now being prepared in Hollywood, after the diva's heirs gave their consent.
The film "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" will be co-produced by New Zealand screenwriter Anthony McCarten, who has already written the script for the new production. Anthony McCarten, 58, has had great success with a number of recent productions, all of which are biographical films - "The Theory of Everything" (2014), "Darkest Hour" (2017), "Bohemian Rhapsody" (2018). ) and "The Two Popes" (2019).
The production will bring to light many of the stories Whitney Houston lived behind the curtain, after her hidden life was presented to the public in several documentaries. "Whitney" recounted the testimony of some people who claimed that the artist was sexually assaulted in her youth by a cousin. The second documentary, "Whitney: Can I Be Me", evokes the singer's love affair with another woman, Robyn Crawford.
"I know Whitney Houston's story hasn't been fully told yet," said Clive Davis. The famous music producer specified that the script of the new production will be "without taboos" and "rich in music".
