— Robert Evans, whose charisma rivaled some of the actors who appeared in the hit films he produced, died Saturday, according to his publicist Monique Evans.

He was 89.

As studio head, Evans helped resurrect Paramount Pictures in the 1960s by bringing such projects as "Chinatown," "The Godfather" and "Rosemary's Baby" to the big screen.
