(AP) The British Society of Cinematographers says "Star Wars" cinematographer Gilbert Taylor has died at age 99.


Spokeswoman Frances Russell said Tuesday that Taylor died August 23 and his family is still making funeral arrangements.


Taylor worked with a wide range of directors, including George Lucas, Alfred Hitchcock and Roman Polanski. He produced distinctive black and white classics including Stanley Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove" and Richard Lester's Beatlemania chronicle "A Hard Day's Night." He also worked on television series including "The Avengers."


Taylor was a founding member of the cinematographers' society who entered the British film industry in the 1920s.
