ROME (AP) — Oscar-nominated director and screenwriter Mario Monicelli, considered one of the fathers of the Italian comedy of the 1940s-1960s, died Monday after jumping from a fifth-story hospital window, the hospital said. He was 95.
Wow, he looked pretty good for 95. On the one hand, it's obviously tragic; however, if you're 95, you've lived a full life, and you've been told whatever sent you to the hospital is terminal, the decision is understandable.
