Rose obit mix-up besets filmmaker

Filmmaker George Butler wants his friends to know he’s alive, desp­ite a premature obituary on The Charlie Rose Show.

Filmmaker George Butler wants his friends to know he’s alive, desp­ite a premature obituary on The Charlie Rose Show. During Rose’s annual New Year’s Eve tribute on PBS to notable figures who died during the year, he included Butler, whose 1977 film Pumping Iron featured a then-unknown body­builder named Arnold Schwarzenegger. The PBS show confused him with another George Butler, a longtime jazz record executive, who died April 9. Rose has retracted the error.
