ABSTRACT
Jack Valenti, Hollywood's legendary leading man in Washington for nearly four decades and president of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), is eager to make his exit even though he admits he's enjoying the final lap of the industry circuit. There's just one problem. The seven studios that make up the MPAA are having an embarrassingly tough time filling his boots and are under pressure from Valenti to get the job done in the next few months. The mere mention of Republican Billy Tauzin in industry circles elicits scowls.
