PGA fetes ‘Blair’ publicist

Clein to receive Career Achievement Award

Harry Clein will receive the Career Achievement Award at the 37th annual Publicists Guild of America awards luncheon, March 22 at the BevHilton.

“Harry is being recognized for his efforts in the publicity, promotion and marketing campaign of ‘The Blair Witch Project,’ which set all kinds of precedents in the use of the Internet for promoting movies,” awards committee chairman Henri Bollinger said.

Clein previously received the guild’s Maxwell Weinberg Award in 1995 for his work on “Forrest Gump.” His other campaigns include “Sophie’s Choice,” “Dirty Dancing,” “sex, lies, and videotape” and “Cinema Paradiso,” among many others.

At the publicists event, as previously reported, Universal Studios prexy-chief operating officer Ron Meyer will receive the Motion Picture Showmanship Award; Chris Carter will be given the Television Showmanship Award; and Roy Edward Disney will get the Lifetime Achievement Award.

The guild will also salute MGM in honor of its 75th anniversary.
