Budge Crawley – What Happened to Canada’s King of Film?

In this episode, I have an interview with the author Barbara Wade Rose, who wrote a biography about Canadian filmmaker Budge Crawley called “Budge: What happened to Canada’s king of film”.

Budge Crawley was a pioneer Canadian independent filmmaker who started making films in Ottawa, Ontario during the 40s and had a long film career that culminated in winning an Oscar for a documentary called “The man who skied down Everest”. Now he is forgotten, but we will attempt to revive his achievements by talking about his life and movies.
