We've truly lost a legend! Sam was personally responsible for the careers of many, many people I know in the industry and my own as well! While I never worked at Action ( I started at Varitel ) Sam helped me score my first gig and Action was my regular stop on the way home after work to visit my many friend there. Very sad news.

> Sam was a major influence on many of us in post-production.   I worked for him at Action Video (a company he founded and ran in the 1980s and 90s, in Hollywood) for 7 years.  When you worked for Sam you felt like a member of his family.
