Some sad news

Yesterday came the extremely sad news of the passing of Robert Garlock, formerly a publicist at PMK (later PMK/HBH) and more recently head of the talent section at 42 West. I first met Robert back in the early 90s when I interviewed Uma Thurman for Pulp Fiction and our paths crossed many, many times over the years, the last being in December when I hosted a Q&A for The Holiday with another of his clients, Kate Winslet. He was always warm, funny, professional and while he cared about his clients, firecely, he also understood we had a job too. It was obvious, as well, that he loved movies. He was, as Glenn Kenny has already pointed out, one of the good guys. Robert was only 41. He will be missed.
