 VENICE FILM FESTIVAL PHOTOGRAPHERS HONOR JOE PESCI,
 STAR OF UNIVERSAL'S 'THE PUBLIC EYE'
 UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 150 photographers covering the 59th Venice Film Festival voted unanimously to present a special award to actor Joe Pesci for his performance as a 1940s shutterbug in Universal Pictures' "The Public Eye," which is being shown officially this evening.
 The first of its kind award, which will be presented to Pesci tomorrow afternoon in Venice, honors Academy Award-winner Pesci ("GoodFellas") for his role as the brilliant, eccentric Leon (Bernzy) Bernstein, a tabloid photographer with an eye for the underside of life but the soul of an artist. Barbara Hershey also stars in the film, which was written and directed by Howard Franklin.
 "The Public Eye" opens in theaters nationwide on Oct. 16.
