Kay Mander obituary

23 February 2014 6:54 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Documentary maker who battled sexism in the film industry of postwar Britain and went on to work in continuity

The pioneering film-maker Kay Mander, who has died aged 98, was a member of the British documentary movement and began directing during the second world war, making training films and social documentaries for the Ministry of Information. In 1944, she established her own production company, Basic Films, and like many of her male contemporaries attempted to break into feature films after the war. But she struggled to find directing jobs and spent the rest of her long career in continuity.

Born in Hull, east Yorkshire, Mander grew up in Paris, later boarding at Queenwood ladies' college, in Eastbourne, East Sussex. After leaving school, she moved to Berlin, where her father was employed as an accountant.

Meet 'Lambert & Stamp': The Unlikely Duo That Tamed the Who

"There is no better dinner date than Chris Stamp," says James D. Cooper, whose debut documentary Lambert & Stamp premiered earlier this week at the Sundance Film Festival.

Sundance Film Review: ‘Lambert & Stamp’

20 January 2014 11:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Named for the cinephilic pair of Swinging Londoners who figured that managing the Who would be a good way to get a movie made, “Lambert & Stamp” belatedly realizes their 50-year-old dream. Impeccably directed by first-time documentarian James D. Cooper, the pic, chock-full of tooth-rattling ’60s Who tunes, also serves as a definitive screen bio of the band and its rock-operatic rise, and as an incisive portrait of the two men, Chris Stamp and the late Kit Lambert, who were crucial to making that happen. At least in ancillary, the film’s wallop should rival that from Keith Moon’s kick drum.

Not just for the “maximum R&B” group’s legion of fans, “Lambert & Stamp” stands to appeal to anyone interested in ’60s British pop culture, proto-indie entrepreneurship and/or the interpersonal dynamics involved in any collaborative art.

Lambert, son of a classical musician, died in 1981 and is seen and heard here only in snippets. »
