TIFF Founder, OUTRAGEOUS! Producer Bill Marshall Dies @ 77 Comments (0)

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Toronto Film Fest founder Bill Marshall died of a heart attack at 77 on New Year's Eve. Marshall, along with his work in helping to make Toronto a first-class destination for new films, produced a string of films himself, including the fascinating drag flick Outrageous! (1977), starring Craig Russell (d. 1990), that includes some of Russell's fab impersonations of legendary divas Tallulah Bankhead, Bette Davis, Mae West, Barbra Streisand and more.

Key lines: “How many Zsa Zsa Gabors can be in a room at a time?” “Are you telling me Karen Black isn't real?” “What a dump! Speaking of Joan Crawford ... ” “I've never heard of a sugar uncle.”

The whole movie is right here:

According to THR:

Marshall passed away Sunday in a Toronto hospital after a cardiac arrest, the festival said. Marshall and two friends, Henk van der Kolk and Dusty Cohl, launched the then Festival of Festivals in 1976 to bring American stars and the best of European cinema to a sophisticated Toronto audience.

Their first year saw 35,000 film lovers attending to watch 127 features from 30 countries. TIFF, which today is a familiar launching pad for Hollywood Oscar campaigns, annually features A-list talent such as Matt Damon, George Clooney and Jennifer Lawrence.

"Without his tenacity and dedication, the Toronto International Film Festival would not be among the most influential public cultural festivals today," TIFF CEO Piers Handling said in a statement. "We were so fortunate to have Bill serve as one of our greatest champions for 41 years."

Check out this vintage interview with Mr. Marshall:

RIP! Quite an accomplished man.

This is probably about how a Trump Administration will go, unfortunately. It's funny, but I hope his transition team never hears it.
