Budge: what happened to Canada's king of film

Front Cover
ECW Press, Oct 1, 1998 - Biography & Autobiography - 260 pages
Examining the life of a pioneer who started his own film studio before the National Film Board, this account traces the history of Budge Crawley, a one-man industry who hated government handouts; a filmmaker who won Canada its first feature-film Academy Award in 1976; and a husband who loved two wives and a girlfriend—occasionally at the same time. Revealing why he was recognized as Canada's movie maverick, the biography details how Crawley fought for quality films and often broke the rules. In the end, his story is as dramatic as his profession: Budge and the fortunes of film itself brought to a crashing climax his company, his relationships, and the one great Canadian movie he swore he intended to finish.
