Larry King Pays Tribute To Jerry Weintraub, With Help From Elvis

Larry King shares his memories of the late, great Hollywood producer Jerry Weintraub, who passed away this week at age 77.

Jerry Weintraub was the producer behind such huge hits as 'Ocean's Eleven' and 'The Karate Kid.' But as Larry King recalls, Weintraub also had a hand in some of the biggest music acts of the past 50 years, including Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley. Larry was friends with Jerry and took a few minutes to talk about Jerry's producing prowess. Watch below to hear about the time Jerry saved Elvis Presley from a close-call at a Miami Beach show.

Rest in Peace, Jerry.
