Gray Frederickson, an Oscar-winning co-EP on The Godfather films and Apocalypse Now who was one of the busiest and most respected producers and production executives of the 1960s through the ‘80s, died November 20 of prostate cancer in Oklahoma City.

He was 85. His wife, Karen, confirmed his death. Born on July 21, 1937, in Oklahoma, Frederickson moved to Hollywood in the early ‘60s and quickly acquired expertise as a line producer.

He produced the 1971 comedy Making It at 20th Century Fox and joined with Al Ruddy to produce Little Fauss and Big Halsy (1970) with Robert Redford at Paramount.

Becoming a trusted adviser to Francis Ford Coppola, Frederickson was a co-executive producer on The Godfather, The Godfather Part II — sharing a Best Picture Oscar for the sequel — and Apocalypse Now, spending many months beside Coppola in the Philippines and other Asian locations.
