Emmy-winning film director Daniel Petrie Sr. (A Raisin in the Sun, Sybil, Inherit the Wind) has died of cancer in Los Angeles. He was 83. "[Petrie] was known for his kind and thoughtful nature, but when it came to defending the economic and creative rights for [Directors Guild of America] members, Dan was one the toughest leaders at the negotiation table," said DGA president Michael Apted. "We will miss him greatly."
