Mimi Weber, 80, talent agent

Manager repped Olivier, Beatty, Davis

Talent agent and personal manager Mimi Weber died May 16 of an aneurysm in Los Angeles. She was 80.

Weber began her career in 1958 at MCA in New York, representing clients including Laurence Olivier, Warren Beatty, Bette Davis and Cary Grant.

She became a personal manager in 1961 and represented actors including George Maharis, Myrna Loy, Harry Guardino, Nick Nolte and Pam Dawber.
