Steve Martin remembers Carl Reiner.

Carl Reiner, Perfect:

I’ve known only two perfect people in my life. One is that son of a bitch Martin Short; the other is Carl Reiner.

I met Carl in 1979 when I asked him to direct my first film, “The Jerk.”

A wonderful reminiscence. Seems like it would have been a privilege to have known Reiner.

Reiner seems like he was a mensch. That means “adult” in Yiddish. It is also just about the highest praise there is. Just plain being decent and kind is often extremely difficult.
