Jerry Weintraub (born September 26, 1937) is an American film producer and former chairman and CEO of United Artists. He now lives in Palm Springs, California. After several years as an agent at MCA, he left and formed his own personal management company. In the 1960's, he also co-founded the vocal group The Doodletown Pipers. Among the acts that Weintraub managed at this time were Joey Bishop, The Four Seasons, and singer Jane Morgan. His relationship with Morgan went from professional to personal and the two were married in 1965. Before turning to films, Weintraub's largest entertainment success was as the personal manager of singer and actor John Denver whom he signed in 1970. By 1975, Denver was the highest-selling male artist in the world.
