John Heyman, Distinguished Financier and Producer, Dies at 84 - VarietyWednesday, July 05, 2017
Home Alone” and “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” (Fox), “Victor/Victoria” and “Trail of the Pink Panther” (MGM), “Black Rain,” “Chinatown,” “Grease,” “Heaven Can Wait,” “Looking for Mr. Goodbar,” “Marathon Man,” “Saturday Night Fever” and “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” (Paramount), “Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes” (Warner Bros.) and “The Man Who Would Be King” (Allied Artists).Heyman’s International Artists Agency, at the time the largest independent artists’ agency outside the U.S., repped top talent including Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, but in 1961 IAA launched the subsidiary World Film Sales, which ushered in a hugely important innovation for the movie industry when it became the first company to pre-sell and license films territory by territory.Heyman pioneered structured financing in 1962 because, while vehicles for Elizabeth Taylor were easy to set up, he needed money for films that would feature working actors like Trevor Howard and Jack Hawkins.World Film Sales was sold to ITC in 1973. Eventually Heyman built up what would be called the World Group of Companies Limited, through which, over the span of more than four decades, he served as producer, co-producer, packager, co-financier, and/or distributor of numerous films that have grossed a total of more than $7 billion.He also financed or produced plays, including the longest-running “Hamlet” in Broadway starring Richard Burton and directed by John Gielgud. That production was adapted for film and became the first feature Heyman produced in 1964.The films packaged, financed or produced by World Group received more than 180 Academy Award nominations and 26 Oscars.World Productions in London became the largest independent producer of television drama in the U.K. and the only company to have had programs airing on all five U.K. terrestrial channels in one year.Heyman produced some 15 films, including “The Go-Between” and “The Hireling,” which won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival in 1971 and 1973, respectively. The former, directed by Joseph Losey from a clever screen...

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
