Vale Tony Scott by wonderersheart | Aug 21, 2012 | Dead or dying, Movies | 0 comments The film director Tony Scott died by suicide yesterdday. Mr Scott was 68 and he was perhaps best known as the director of Top Gun, one of the highest grossing movies of 1986. I am extending my sympathy to his family and friends. A sad loss.
