Written By: Philip Eno on 10/07/10 at 1:35 am

Award-winning US documentary maker Marshall Flaum has died at the age of 85 from complications following hip surgery.

Flaum, whose career spanned 55 years, collected five Emmy awards and was twice nominated for an Oscar.

His extensive work on films with naturalist Jacques Cousteau during the 1970s resulted in two Emmy awards.

During the 1950s, Flaum picked up two Emmys for scripting episodes of US series The Twentieth Century.

His other accolades included a Silver Lion from the Venice Film Festival.

Flaum also made documentaries to mark 50 years of cartoon makers Hanna Barbera and Hollywood legends Humphrey Bogart and Bing Crosby.
