- ‘Dawson City’ an original documentary portrait of a small town
By Mick LaSalle - Tuesday Jul 11, 2017
Back in the golden age of the big movie studios, Dawson City, a small town in Canada, was the last stop for movies in distribution.The studios didn’t want old prints back and wouldn’t pay the return postage.[...] the various theaters stored them, or destroyed them, or, in one of the more interesting cases, buried them.Frozen Time, a documentary by Bill Morrison that opens Friday, July 14, at the Roxie Theatre, tells of the 1978 discovery of an enormous cache of silent films, found when construction workers were bulldozing the foundation for a new building.Though the people who’d buried those film reels thought they were discarding them, they were actually preserving them — and much better than had they put them in a crate and saved them in a library.Underground, nitrate film stock ages at a slower rate; thus, many of the reels found were one-of-a-kind samples from otherwise lost movies.Though it never became much bigger than a small town, it featured significantly in the lives of many prominent people.[...] the music links it all together, creating the sense of some overarching, unseen logic connecting all human activity and making everything inevitable.[...] the feeling that Morrison and Somers are able to fabricate, from assembling these words, sounds and images, is worthy and original and carries with it a philosophical quality.

- Judith Jones, editor of Julia Child, dead at 93
By Hillel Italie - Wednesday Aug 2, 2017
NEW YORK — Judith Jones, a consummate literary editor who helped revolutionize American cuisine by publishing Julia Child and other groundbreaking cookbook authors, worked for decades with John Updike and Anne Tyler and helped introduce English-language readers to “The Diary of Anne Frank,” has died at age 93.Mrs. Jones, who spent more than 50 years at Alfred A. Knopf before retiring in 2011, died early Wednesday at her summer home in Walden, Vt.Few better embodied and lived out the ideal of a life in New York publishing than the slender, refined Mrs. Jones, whom Tyler once praised, both as a person and an editor, as “very delicate and graceful, almost weightless.”Mrs. Jones worked at one of the leading publishing houses with some of the world’s most beloved authors.Tyler, however, thought the movie “stupid” because of a scene in which Mrs. Jones backs out of a dinner at an author’s home because it’s raining, something the real editor would never have done.Mrs. Jones was herself an author and gourmet who collaborated on several cookbooks with her husband Evan Jones, contributed to numerous food magazines and wrote the memoir The Tenth Muse:The year before, she received the James Beard Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award, a fitting prize for Mrs. Jones, who published Beard and was a close friend.“One day my boss said, ‘Oh, will you get rid of these books and write some letters,’” she explained in a 2001 interview with the Associated Press.The company, run by founders Alfred and Blanche Knopf, was eccentric and old-fashioned, where women were warned against attending meetings because strong language might be used.Mrs. Jones was among the first to realize that World War II soldiers returning from Europe might be ready for more sophisticated cuisine.Mrs. Jones’ most famous discovery was Child, a middle-aged American chef in the early ’60s who, like Mrs. Jones, had returned to the states after living for years in Paris.Other chefs with whom Mrs. Jones worked included pioneers in California cuisine (Alice Waters), Middle Eastern food (Claudia Roden) and cooking from the American South (Edna Lewis).
