Oscar Winner Takes Final Bow

Tough-talking movie producer Julia Phillips, the first woman to
win a best-picture Oscar, has died of cancer.

Phillips, 57, produced Oscar-winner 'The Sting' as well as 'Taxi
Driver' and 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' in the 1970s,
before succumbing to a raging cocaine habit.

She won Hollywood's attention again in 1991 with the bestselling
juicy memoir 'You'll Never Eat Lunch In This Town Again', which
invoked the names of such luminaries as Steven Spielberg, Warren
Beatty and Martin Scorsese.

Phillips, described as a brilliant but intimidating raconteur
who swore like a stevedore and smoked non-stop, was not worried
about burning her bridges with the books.

"She always said, 'It turned me from an old producer into an
icon'," her son-in-law, Modi Wiczyk, was quoted as saying.

She died on Monday in her Hollywood home, according to Daily
Variety. She is survived by children Kate and Matthew.

Phillips, who was diagnosed with the disease in August, died at
home Tuesday, 1st Jan 2002.
