first_imgThe Best Damn Fiddler from Calabogie to KaladarSo, you probably know about how Arthur Lipsett’s films influenced George Lucas, or how Roman Kroiter and Colin Low wowed Stanley Kubrick with Universe (if not, read this), but did you know we had another big claim to fame? We have the privilege of producing the very first film that Margot Kidder appeared in.Kidder did a wonderful job as Rosie in this film about a man who chooses a way of life that has serious repercussions for his family. Only 19 or 20 at the time, she was already stealing the scene every time she walked into the frame. Kidder later went on to star opposite Christopher Reeves in the Superman films.READ MORE Facebook Advertisement Did you know we had an Oscar-nominated, Tony/BAFTA/Golden Globe-winning actor star in one of our docs? It’s true. Richard Burton provided his voice for the readings from Malcolm Lowry’s Under the Volcano in this riveting documentary that explores Lowry’s life, and “death by misadventure.”There are some common threads that run through the two men, like a tendency for turbulent relationships and a problem with alcohol, so the pairing just seems… right. Burton, star of the stage and screen, is of course known for his roles in Cleopatra, Hamlet, and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, as well as for his marriages to Elizabeth Taylor.
