Dimitri de Grunwald

Dimitri de Grunwald (born 1914 in St. Petersburg, Russia, died 26 May 1990 at Hove, England) was a Russian-born British film producer, and the brother of producer Anatole de Grunwald.

The two brothers assisted in the production of several films of Anthony Asquith. In 1960 Dimitri co-produced the Peter Sellers and Sophia Loren film The Millionairess (1960).

In 1967 Dimitri pioneered the idea of raising funds for film productions by selling territorial distribution rights in advance, to consortia of film distributors from various nations.[1][2]
