The last surviving member of the creative team behind the legendary television show I LOVE LUCY, Dann Cahn, passed away last Wednesday at the age of 89, his son told the Associated Press today. He reportedly died of natural causes.
Cahn is widely known for pioneering the three-camera method of filming and editing sitcoms in the 1950s, including I LOVE LUCY. He worked on the show's entire six-season run.
Cahn was the son of Philip Cahn, a film editor who co-founded the Motion Picture Editors guild in 1937. Daniel Cahn, the son of Dann, is currently president of the guild.
“He was a raconteur who just had an overwhelming personality,” his son told the Associated Press. “He was a Type A who mentored a lot of people. He had an incredible life.”
Cahn was born on April 9, 1923, in Los Angeles.
