  1. Being a Producer/Director, I would have rather known David professionally, but I got to know him through my late wife Penny Tyner, who was David’s right hand high atop the Thalberg building at MGM pre-Turner Days.
    I had worked with his wife Loraine, who starred in an Alan Factor-John Newland pilot I Exec’d in the 70’s.
    David was a class act, and so too his Loraine, whom he adored.
    My best thoughts for Loraine.
    The industry has lost one of it’s giants. Rest in Peace, David…you earned it.
