Stanley Donen, film director of a film such as "Cantando under the rain" came to "Charade", at 94 on Sunday.
The information was confirmed by his son, Michael Phillips, a film critic of the Chicago Tribune, in a tweet.
"Singing in the Rain" was released in 1952, with Gene Kelly a capital and was also responsible for other legendary musical films such as "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers", from 1954, and "Funny Face", from 1957, with Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn.
In the 1960s he moved to the United Kingdom, where he made two of his most popular films, with Audrey Hepburn as the leading accompanist: "Charade" (1963) and "Two for the Road" (1967).
Despite this, the Oscars was never nominated, a prize that won the honorary title in 1998 for "work indicated by grace, elegance, ingenuity and visual innovation".
