|Jackie, Monaco 1976|
Jackiehas thousands of friends and business acquaintances, and I consider myself a speck on a page of his Contacts Book, but he never fails to say hello, and he's a straight-shooter, which I'm sure you know.
I've met him at race meetings, business meetings when I worked with Ford, official dinners, and motor shows all over the world.
He'll stop for a chat, and invariably remembers some subject that we may have been discussing at a previous meeting.

He has an uncanny memory, with fantastic recall.
The last time we saw each other was at the 2003 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
I was accompanying my Best Man Graham Johnson on his first, and only visit to the famous Concours. Graham was in the last months of his life, suffering from terminal cancer.

My good friend, Will Hagon, heard regularly commentating motor sport events for the ABC, and one of the finest voices in broadcasting, recently drew my attention to a film starring Jackie, and made by Roman Polanski.
