Nikki Finke asks Jeffrey Katzenberg why the studios haven’t stepped in to save the Motion Picture Home.


NF: Why not twist the arms of the studios?

JK: Nikki, you’re hired.

NF: Give us an idea of how much these goniffs give every year.

JK: You just crossed the line.

NF: Why can’t we know how much they give?

JK: Philanthropy is an unusual part of life. I can’t be critical of anyone who gives a dime. I won’t be – if you’re gonna give one dime or 10 dimes. All u can say is, God bless you and thank you.
