Statement By Michael D. Eisner On The Death Of Lew Wasserman

Lew Wasserman was a giant, striding through multiple eras of Hollywood history, but always with an eye on the future. Time and again, he provided the statesmanlike leadership to keep the American entertainment business moving forward. He was a model for us all, a visionary who saw the enormous potential of our industry to create engaging works of both commerce and art for audiences across America and around the world. I was privileged to know him and learn from him. Jane and I will miss him greatly, and extend our deepest sympathies to his wife and wonderful partner, Edie.
