Jerry Weintraub – Goodbye Good Friend

17th Annual Hollywood Film Awards - Show

“If there’s one piece of advice I can give to young people… it’s this: persist, push, hang on, keep going, never give up. When the man say no, pretend you can’t hear him. Look confused, stammer, say, “Huh?” Persistence-it’s a cliché, but it happens to work.

The person who makes it is the person who keeps on going after everyone else has quit. This is more important than intelligence, pedigree, even connections. Be dogged! Keep hitting that door until you bust it down!

I have accomplished almost nothing on the first or second or even third try – the breakthrough usually comes late, when everyone else has left the field.” -JERRY WEINTRAUB.

So, Movie producer Jerry Weintraub, known for the films “Nashville,” “The Karate Kid” and the remake of “Ocean’s Eleven” in 2001 passed away. We are going to miss him.

Weintraub also produced the HBO film “Behind the Candelabra” starring Matt Damon and Michael Douglas which was nominated for an impressive 15 Emmy Awards. His career includes promoting Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan and Led Zeppelin and managing such talents as Neil Diamond, John Denver, The Carpenters and The Moody Blues, among others. His remarkable list of film hits include Nashville, Diner, The Karate Kid and the Ocean’s Eleven series.
