Bob Berkowitz wrote the following blog upon learning of the passing of Icon Kirk Douglas. I wanted to share it with you.
“With the passing of this Hollywood Icon, I remember the day I spent with him and his lovely wife Anne back in the 1980’s.
I was working to help my mentor Jay Weiss who was being honored by the Weitzman Institute of Science in Israel.
Founded in 1934 and located in Rehovot, Israel, south of Tel Aviv, The Weitzman Institute is a world leading research institution in natural and exact sciences.
It has a long history of investigation and discovery. Their basic mission is advancing science.
It educates a large portion of Israel’s scientific leadership and helps advance science literacy in school.
Kirk and Jay were close friends and spent a lot of time socially together with their wives Renee and Anne.
Both Jay Weiss and Kirk Douglas greatly supported the extraordinary work of this remarkable research institute.
I was honored to make a film tribute and shoot a segment with Kirk and Anne in their beautiful home in LA. I worked with Anne to set up the shoot and to put together an LA crew.
It was a pleasure to meet and work with him. Kirk was a gentleman and a consummate professional.”
