Tightropes, Terminator and the swear box on Malcolm Tucker's table

Taking it on the Chinn

Oscar-winning producer Simon Chinn was last week recalling the moment he took to the Kodak Theatre podium 12 months ago to collect the award for his superb documentary Man on Wire. He was joined by his director James Marsh and by the film's French star Philippe Petit. In an exclusive charity Q&A session, Chinn revealed to me some of the tensions behind the production but also some of the secrets of one of the great Oscar acceptances of all time. After a magic trick with a lucky coin, Petit, it will be remembered, then took the Oscar statue and balanced it on his chin as the music played to usher the winners off stage. "We had to ask special permission ahead of the awards for the Academy to allow Philippe up if we won," says Chinn. »
