RIP Screenwriter Kevin Jarre (NOT ‘Jaffe’, TMZ)
Jarre was known as a history buff, which explains why such a good portion of his screenwriting credits involve different periods of American history. Glory, in particular, has an inordinately strong connection with the topic, being about the Civil War. A lot of people a certain age even saw that movie for the first time in history class (like me).
Oh, there's one other thing: The crack journalists at TMZ got Jarre's name wrong as "Kevin Jaffe," which is getting picked up by lots of other sites. Classy, TMZ. Classy.
