Some sources list 1947 as the year of Mr. Reiner's birth.
Frank Capra III had worked as first assistant director on three Reiner films prior to co-producing "Ghosts of Mississippi" (1996) and executive producing "The Story of Us" (1999). He also served as first assistant director on both pictures as well.
Reiner was honored with a Friars Club Celebrity Roast in October 2000.
"As an actor I was always more aware of everybody else onstage, or if I was doing 'All in the Family', I was aware of where all the cameras were, where the other actors were, the audience. I was always more interested in the script and in the structure of the script than I was in my performance. Which is not such a great way to approach your acting job." --Rob Reiner quoted in Los Angeles Times, November 25, 1990
In 1998, Reiner championed a successful California ballot initiative, Proposition 10, which resulted in a 50 cent tax on cigarettes going to early educational programs for children.
