          He later attended law school, graduating in 1931, and began                 
          practicing law in Chicago.  His practice initially specialized in           
          corporate and “political” law and subsequently expanded to                  
          include bankruptcy, tax, real estate, and wills and trusts law.             
          After World War II, decedent and his family moved to California             
          where decedent continued his legal practice, focusing in                    
          particular on the entertainment industry.  Decedent was a member            
          of the California bar from 1946 until his death.  Decedent was              
          diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1983 and with cancer of the               
          rectum in 1989.                                                             
               On December 18, 1990, decedent created a revocable living              
          trust entitled the Morton B. Harper Trust (the Trust).  The trust           
          instrument designated decedent as the original trustee and as the           
          initial primary beneficiary.  The document further provided:                
          “During the lifetime of the Trustor, the Trustee, in Trustee’s              
          sole discretion may pay or apply the net income and/or corpus, or           
          so much as Trustee chooses, to or for the benefit of the
