MARBELLA, Spain -- Film director Jean Negulesco, 93, a Romanian whose films included "How to Marry a Millionaire" and "Three Coins in a Fountain" died here Sunday of heart failure and will be buried tomorrow in this Mediterranean coastal resort town where he lived since the late 1960s.

Born Feb. 29, 1900, in Craiova, Romania, he came to the United States in 1927.

His last directing credit was "The Invisible Six" in 1970. His first movie credit was "Singapore Woman" in 1941.
