Publisher John Calder
“Among the many great writers he championed were Samuel Beckett, Heinrich Böll, Wolfgang Borchert, William Burroughs, Marguerite Duras, Louis-Ferdinand Céline, Sadegh Hedayat, Aidan Higgins, Henry Miller, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Nathalie Sarraute, Hubert Selby, Jr, and Claude Simon… In short, John Calder was the right publisher at the right time who introduced international post-war literature music and theatre to a country not always sure it wanted to make those discoveries, but when you look at his list 50 to 60 years later you realise just how far ahead of his time he was."

Barbara Harris.
A wonderful, underappreciated actress. She was the best thing in the original Freaky Friday and Family Plot, memorable in the finale of Nashville, and of course stole Who Is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me? I've never actually watched that last film, but I have watched her famous Oscar-nominated scene.

It's a bad movie rescued entirely by Harris' scene, which is completely different than anything else in the film. It's exactly the kind of thing the Supporting Acting awards should nominate more often
