Bob Weinstein, filling in for brother Harvey, gave a very telling presentation that addressed the notion that they were going out of business to the Media and Money Conference in New York on Wednesday.
Bob has long been Harvey’s surrogate for the nearly 20 years that they ran Miramax Film, cutely named after their parents Miriam and Max. They jointly ran the company, but Harvey was always front and center, most pointedly when he stormed the Oscar stage to grab the trophy in 1998′s ceremony and almost forgot Bob’s name in the thank yous.
Harvey was nowhere to be seen on Wednesday, having bowed out due to “personal reasons.”
With Harvey, that could mean anything.
By the way, that’s Bob on the left.
