Actor-turned-movie mogul William Self has died at the age of 89. The veteran producer passed away on Monday night, November 15 at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles after suffering a heart attack last week.

Self began his career as an actor in the 1940s, starring in four films under the direction of famed moviemaker Howard Hawks, including cult classic "The Thing from Another World" in 1951. In the 1950s, Self stepped behind the camera as a producer, working on "The Frank Sinatra Show" and "The Twilight Zone", before he was hired by the 20th Century Fox Film Corporation, where he rose through the ranks to become the firm's Vice-President.

He also worked for CBS and later set up his own production company. Self is survived by his daughter Barbara and son Edwin.
