The young lawyers included producer-director George Lucas and writer-director Matthew Robbins among their clients. Pollock was soon serving as chairman of Filmex Inc. as well. His executive experience and high-powered contacts eventually led to Pollock's being appointed the chairman of MCA/Universal's motion picture group and an executive vice president of MCA Inc.
