Jonathan Miller’s reflection exhibition at the Tate was accompanied by a typically brilliant series of short films entitled ON REFLECTION. It’s on YouTube.

Actually the exhibition entitled Mirror Image: Jonathan Miller on Refelection was held at the National Gallery from 16 September to 13 December 1998. You can still find the catalogue here or here. A contemporary interview.

Record executive Joe Smith. Remarkable career, he had a big hand in freeing Van Morrison from his dire situation with Bang Records and signing him with Warner Bros. He later ignited Bonnie Raitt's career when he signed her to Capitol Records (where she cut three unexpectedly huge multiplatinum hit albums). At the same time, I think he's the Deadhead exec who buried Paul's Boutique, telling the Beastie Boys that the new Donnie Osmond record was their priority.

Smith appears in the recent Linda Ronstadt documentary, acknowledging his bad calls in dissuading her from recording the hugely successful Riddle albums and the canciones.

I really liked him in Lumet's Night Falls On Manhattan. He chews it up big time, but it feels within the boundaries of the story.

I saw his Roy Cohn in MILLENNIUM APPROACHES, from fifth row center on the Wednesday matinee after their triumphant Tuesday opening night -- basically, I woke up with the hottest ticket in town. Liebman was on fire that day, it was one of the most electrifying and exhilarating performances I've ever seen. And not just as Roy Cohn -- his high-camp fop Prior Walter was glorious. I'm very grateful to whoever posted that clip compilation.
