      Former press agent who joined MCA's fledgling TV division as a talent agent, before forming his own literary agency. After representing television writers Paddy Chayefsky and Reginald Rose as well as novelists Joseph Heller and Philip Roth during the 1950s and 60s, Jaffe sold his agency to join United Artists in 1965 as a production vice president. There he became head of worldwide production, leaving in 1973 to enter independent production. Under his tenure, UA released "Midnight Cowboy" (1969) and "Last Tango in Paris" (1973). As an independent producer Jaffe's first feature was John Milius' romantic adventure "The Wind and the Lion" (1975); he subsequently produced "Demon Seed" (1977), "Who'll Stop the Rain" (1978), "Jinxed" (1982) and "Fright Night" (1985) and its 1988 sequel. Jaffe also produced "Time After Time" (1979) on which his son Stephen-Charles Jaffe served as associate producer, and served as executive producer on "Those Lips, Those Eyes" (1980), which his son produced.
