    Kevin Jarre was a fine human being. Too few like him in Hollywood. Another Celt brought down by the studios. Sad. I knew him and admired his resolve. In 1981 I was told by producers who should know that the reason no producers or studio executives stole scripts or treatments from him was that he knew his way around pistol, knife, and punching bag. A word to the wise at the WGA...I have been stolen from by the horror-producers in Holywood precisely because I ignored his advice to buy a gun and learn how to use it.
