One of the true and purest pleasures of attending Show West or East was the honor of being in the same room with Jack Valenti. He was the real deal. As Spielberg said "A giant has passed." He is one of the people I have made my way to just to be able to say I shook his hand.
I stole one of his lines.... "Thank you for that entirely too short and supperlative adjective lacking introduction." I use it but no one ever laughs. What Jack had, you can't steal.
My hat is off, my knee is bowed, a giant passes.
