Health[edit]

On May 6, 1998, during a dinner party in honor of director Wes Craven, Evans suffered a stroke while giving a toast, and was rushed to nearby Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Evans flatlined in the ambulance, but was resuscitated. Suffering a series of three strokes in quick succession, he was left paralyzed on his right side and completely unable to speak.[20] During his hospital stay, he was encouraged by media mogul and friend Sumner Redstone, who stayed at his bedside, to work on his speech and recovery. A few days after Evans' stroke, Frank Sinatra died from a heart attack in one of the adjoining rooms at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Witnessing his body being taken away, Evans said it was an event that furthered his desire to recover.[21]
Evans eventually regained his ability to talk and returned to producing. As of 2013,[20] he relies on a cane for shorter walks and has limited mobility.

羅伯特·埃文斯
英語Robert Evans),生於1930年6月29日,是一位美國電影製片人,著名作品有魔鬼聖嬰愛情故事教父唐人街

作為製片人
因為不滿意自己的表演風格,他決定成為製片人。他以大偵探(改編自一部他在1966年買下版權的小說大偵探)為起步,開始成為派拉蒙製片主管,這部影片由法蘭克·辛納屈、李·萊米克、傑克·克盧格曼、勞勃·杜瓦和傑奎琳·比塞特主演。1968年,紐約時報寫手彼得·巴特寫了一篇關於埃文斯侵略性製片風格的文章.這篇文章使他受到了查爾斯·布盧多恩(Charles Bluhdorn)的注意,後者是Gulf+Western企業集團的領導並且已經收購了派拉蒙,他雇傭了埃文斯。

當埃文斯接管派拉蒙製片主管時,派拉蒙的水準已經退步不少了。然而儘管他毫無經驗,卻扭轉了這個局面,在他手中派拉蒙不僅成爲了當時好萊塢最成功的電影製片廠,也為Gulf+Western創造了巨大的經濟利益。在他任內,派拉蒙推出了許多成功之作,例如:單身公寓(1968)、魔鬼聖嬰(1968)、愛情故事(1970)、教父(1972)、救虎記(1973)和了不起的蓋茨比(1974)等。

由於埃文斯不滿於他的經濟待遇並想要出品自己名下的電影,他與派拉蒙達成了一項協議,令他可以在作為派拉蒙工作的同時作為一個獨立製片人出現。其他的製片人抱怨這給予了埃文斯不公平的優勢。這一時期他出品的電影有唐人街、幻影俠(1996)、神鬼至尊(1997)、老公出差(1999)和十日拍拖手冊(2003)等。

埃文斯在2003年製作了他的最後一部電影後仍然在工作著。他也製作和為Kid Notorious擔任配音。當前他在製作天狼星衛星廣播的節目「與羅伯特·埃文斯同床」。

埃文斯現在參與著一部關於與約翰·德羅寧(John DeLorean)的電影。[3]
