Army Archerd

Very few people in this town made me feel as welcome or as relevant as Variety columnist Army Archerd, who died today at the age of 87. He was a gentleman through and through. He kept his word, returned phone calls, listened patiently to your pitch (even it was a bit weak) and maintained a sense of humour throughout. He sweetly wrote about the birth of both my babies, in 1990 and 1995, at Cedars Sinai. I felt incredibly honored.

His Variety obit is here.

Hollywood has truly lost one of the good ones today. No-one could ever hold a candle to Army.
