Rambaldi won the Oscar for best special effects on three occasions: the first with King Kong by John Guillermin, 1976. In 1979, together with Hans Ruedi Giger, helping to give life to another famous creature: “Alien“, by Ridley Scott.
But his masterpiece came in 1982 when he moved the entire world with the protagonist of ET The Extra-Terrestrial, directed by Steven Spielberg.”
Goodbye, and thank you…
