Submission + - Jack Valenti is dead

mangu writes: "Ex-MPAA president Jack Valenti died today at the age of 85.

"Jack was a showman, a gentleman, an orator and a passionate champion of this country, its movies and the enduring freedoms that made both so important to this world," his successor, Dan Glickman, said in a written statement announcing Valenti's death. "He also embodied the theatricality of our industry with his conviction, quick wit and boundless energy. In a very real sense, he was the ultimate leading man."
