Or Should We Say...



The Philadelphia Film & Video Commission was started by Philadelphia's Mayor W. Wilson Goode and run by Harry Jay Katz in 1986 as a means of enticing producers and directors to use Philadelphia as a venue for their new projects. As a result, Mr. Katz received an official proclamation and Liberty Bell from the Mayor and City Council. Katz also opened the Philadelphia Bureau of The Hollywood Reporter.


By A.D. Amorosi:

Few movies, outside of Mannequin, Rocky and an occasional De Palma, got done here. Local celebs and their controversies were limited to Fast Eddie and Harry Jay Katz.

I learned to dig and appreciate people for the good they had done: Harry Jay Katz.
