Actor George Clooney has presented producer of the Ocean's film series, Jerry Weintraub, with a lifetime achievement award in Boston.
Weintraub and Clooney have worked on all three films
Clooney, star of Ocean's 11, 12 and 13, said: "He's more than the consummate producer, he's one of the greatest friends you could ever have."
Weintraub, 70 later this month, said: "I'm starting the second half of my life, so it's nice to get in now."
The gala dinner was held as the US city's annual film festival kicked off.
Its opening film was Grace is Gone starring John Cusack, about a father who takes his daughters on a road trip after learning that his wife has been killed in the Iraq war.
Weintraub's career has encompassed a number of films and television specials, which picked up three Emmy award nominations during the 1970s.
In June, he became the first Hollywood producer to be immortalised on the Walk of Fame.
He has made cameo appearances in all three of the Ocean's films.
The casino-based adventure films were inspired by the 1960 film Ocean's 11, which starred Rat pack stalwarts Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.
