Vitali passed away on August 20, 2022, as revealed by a pair of tweets from the Stanley Kubrick Twitter account, which read: “It is with the greatest of sadness that we have to tell you that the mainstay of a vast number of Kubrick’s films, Leon Vitali, passed away peacefully last night. Our thoughts are with his family and all that [knew] and loved him.”

A follow-up post after the announcement included a bit of the trailer for “Filmworker,” in which Vitali speaks about working on movies like “Eyes Wide Shut” and reads from letters between him and Kubrick. In the tweet from Kubrick’s account, they also posted a quote from Vitali about his introduction to the influential “2001: A Space Odyssey” director, where Vitali said, “‘Hi Leon, I’m Stanley.’ And we shook hands. When you shook hands with Stanley, it was warm & gentle. Just like a buzz went through you.”

Next to his work with Kubrick, Vitali continued acting over the years in films like 1977’s “Terror of Frankenstein,” in which he played Victor Frankenstein, and the Oscar nominated “Little Children” in 2006. Vitali will certainly be remembered with great fondness by all who knew and loved him, as well as those who celebrated and will continue to celebrate his impressive body of work.
