Helen Gurley Brown’s Film Producer Husband Dies

The ultimate Cosmo girl, Helen Gurley Brown, has lost her wingman. David Brown, the legendary Hollywood film producer and husband of  the editor-extraordinaire, died at the age of 93 last week in New York City. He produced such films as Jaws, The Sting, Cocoon, Chocolat, Driving Miss Daisy and A Few Good Men. He began his career as a journalist and was responsible for writing the cheeky coverlines for Cosmo for over 30 years. The pair were married for 50 years and Helen, 87, showed she's still in charge at his memorial service when she instructed one his producing partners to speak up while giving the eulogy. David was often described as “a bon vivant” and was a shining example of a life well lived. RIP, Mr. Brown.
