One of the most prolific director/producers of all time--an absolute film icon. Name your ten favourite films and there's a good chance, if you are of a certain age, one of Jewison's films will be on that list.

Examples:
In the Heat of the Night
The Thomas Crowne Affair
Moonstruck
Other People's Money

I had the astounding pleasure of meeting and chatting with him and his second wife Lynne last night. OMG. I'm not that star struck, but this guy is a Canadian mini-god!!! He's 87 and he still looks like an impish young boy!

His farm outside Toronto is next door to one of my board members, so they have been friends for many decades. This was my first time meeting him. I was as excited as a little girl!
