    I was fortunate to know Bob Blumofe in business over a period of many years, from his creative years at United Artists, through the producing of two of his own theatrical motion pictures, and on to his leadership at the American Film Institute. Bob was lawyer, producer, administrator bright and above all else was one
    extraordinary gentleman with a great view of the world. He was really one of the good guys.
