From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Television and film producer Bruce Paltrow (November 26, 1943 – October 3, 2002) was born in Brooklyn, New York and studied at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. In the late 1960s he began directing stage productions in New York City, where he met actress Blythe Danner, whom he married in 1970.

He is probably best known as the producer of the television series The White Shadow and St. Elsewhere. He also worked on the critically-acclaimed Homicide: Life on the Street. His last production was the film Duets, which starred his daughter, Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow.

Bruce Paltrow died at age 58 while vacationing in Rome, Italy to celebrate his daughter's 30th birthday. He had suffered from throat cancer for several years, and his death was apparently due to complications from cancer and pneumonia.

He is survived by his wife, daughter, and son Jake Paltrow, also an actor.

Coldplay singer Chris Martin wrote the song Fix You for Paltrow's daughter Gwyneth Paltrow, whom he later married, when she suffered from depression after her father's death. The Coldplay album X&Y carried a dedication to Bruce Paltrow.
