Vid Hall of Fame salutes Cameron

Gala to fete helmer, Eugster, Leach

James Cameron, the mastermind behind the box office phenomenon “Titanic,” has been selected for induction into the Video Hall of Fame.

“Titanic,” which Cameron wrote, produced, co-edited and directed, spent 14 weeks as the country’s top box office attraction and won 11 Academy Awards. Its release on video Sept. 1 is expected to be a similar landmark event.

“James is a great supporter of the video industry, and we are thrilled that he has been chosen to receive this honor,” said Eric Doctorow, worldwide president of Paramount Home Video, which is marketing the “Titanic” video in the U.S.

Cameron will be formally inducted into the Video Hall of Fame on Dec. 8 at a benefit awards dinner in New York. Proceeds from the induction ceremony and annual dinner, sponsored by Video Business, are donated to Variety — The Children’s Charity and the Samara Jan Turkel Foundation for research in autoimmune diseases.

Cameron will be joined by two other industry pioneers announced last month, Jack Eugster, the chairman of Musicland Stores, and Sheryl Leach, the creator of Barney the Dinosaur and founder of Lyrick Studios.
