Charmer, rascal, film producer, ad pioneer
He had hit movies and renegade ideas, but was best at making the deals, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
An advertising and film pioneer, Peter SIMPSON loved making deals and bringing projects together, but he hated the red tape that is so much a part of the Canadian film industry.
He was a charmer and a rascal who loved talking, drinking and eating, but he also expanded the business of filmmaking in Canada and probably hired more actors, directors and technical people than any other producer. His credits range from establishing the first international media buying agency to producing horror films such as the Prom Night franchise to Regeneration (based on novelist Pat Barker's trilogy) to the CTV television series The Eleventh Hour.
Vancouver-born actor Jason Priestly met Mr. SIMPSON in Los Angeles in 1997 about a role in The Highwayman, the first of four films the two made together. "He had an incredible ability to walk into a room and sell people on a project," Mr. Priestly said.
Although they met through work, they became Friends. "He was an incredibly avuncular and jovial man. He loved to laugh, to eat sushi and to drink Heineken. He was a spectacular man."
Peter SIMPSON was born in Port Glasgow, Scotland, the youngest of three sons of a grocer. His father immigrated to Toronto in 1952 and found a job at Eaton's and a place to live in Downsview, in the northern part of Toronto. His mother arrived at the end of the school year with 10-year-old Peter and his brothers. A sister, Marjorie, who died in a car accident in 1969, was born in Canada.
After graduating from high school, Peter attended the University of Toronto, but left to work as a junior buyer for the Young and Rubicam advertising agency.
That's where he met David HARRISON, another "renegade" who shared his love of the zeitgeist, Heineken and the ad business. Mr. SIMPSON quickly moved on to Ogilvy and Mather, then became media director at Stanfield, Johnson and Hill.
During this period, Mr. SIMPSON met and married his first wife, Gordene BYERS. Together, they had four sons: Kerry, Brock, Colin and Bradley. After 14 years, the marriage broke up. In the mid-1980s, Mr. SIMPSON married television producer Ilana FRANK. They had two children: daughter Quinn and son Hayden.
In the 1960s, ad agencies created ads, planned campaigns and placed ads, but the business was getting too complex for this concentration to be efficient. Mr. SIMPSON had the idea to separate these functions and, in 1969, he founded Media Buying Services to purchase advertising space and time for clients. "He was the pioneer," Mr. HARRISON said. "He was a very important guy in the entertainment business."
Media Buying Services quickly acquired clients such as Playtex, Dominion Stores and K-tel, a Winnipeg company headed by Philip Kives that was opening an office in Britain.
"The expertise Peter put in place was not a small factor in the success of K-tel, first in the United Kingdom and then all over Europe," said Ian Howard, the first managing director of K-tel International (UK) Ltd., in an e-mail message. "I could never have concentrated on the rapid growth of the company if the television buying was also a part of the infrastructure." Within five years of its founding, Media Buying Services had seven offices in Canada, Britain and the United States.
By the early 1970s, Mr. SIMPSON had moved into the film promotion business and was spending a lot of time in Los Angeles. After forming Norstar Filmed Entertainment, he started making movies. He became a pioneer again, in making made-for-television movies such as The Sea Gypsies, which he sold to Warner Brothers and which earned a 30-per-cent share when it was broadcast on NBC.
His second film was an even bigger success. Prom Night, which borrowed on the success of Brian de Palma's 1976 film Carrie, starred Jamie Lee Curtis and Leslie Nielson. Released in 1980, it was unabashedly commercial, spawned three sequels and set Canadian film box-office records.
From promotion to production to distribution, Mr. SIMPSON was involved in every part of the nascent Canadian film business, including the Toronto Film Festival, where he served on the board from 1981 to 1990. That's one of the ways he came to know another Scottish immigrant, filmmaker Bill MARSHALL.
"When I started the film festival," Mr. MARSHALL recalled in a telephone conversation, "we used to have a daily session that was on Rogers [cable television] and Peter and I would drink Heineken and excoriate the industry," including the television networks, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission and the federal Telefilm funding agency. "Nobody was safe from our rude and grumpy comments."
They wanted to make films, and railed at public officials who weren't eager to finance their projects, no questions asked. "He wouldn't do anything unless it was his way," Mr. MARSHALL said.
"His first big hit was Prom Night, so he always thought he was a great movie picker," Mr. MARSHALL said. But what he was really good at was putting the financing together - although he "was never very good at getting money out of Telefilm." For one of his films, he put in the credits that it was made "in spite of the Canadian Film Development Corporation," Telefilm's earlier name.
Despite that conflict, "I always enjoyed my encounters with Peter SIMPSON. He was as frisky as they come," said filmmaker Peter Pearson, Telefilm's executive director from 1985 to 1987.
Politically, Mr. SIMPSON supported the Progressive Conservative Party. In the 1980s, when Brian Mulroney was prime minister, Mr. SIMPSON and partner Roger Nantel of Montreal set up Media Canada, which won a contract to place all federal government advertising in newspapers and magazines and on radio and television.
In all, Mr. SIMPSON made close to 40 movies and television films, including The Rage, Men with Guns, Pale Saints, Grizzly Falls and Cold Comfort. He was nominated for the Alexander Korda Award for best British film for Regeneration in 1998, won a Gemini for The Eleventh Hour in 2005 and received a Lifetime Achievement Award for his "unwavering commitment" from the Academy of Canadian Cinema in 2004.
Although he gave up smoking two decades ago, he was diagnosed with lung cancer last September. Treatment failed to defeat the disease, and it was evident by February that the cancer was spreading. Even so, Mr. SIMPSON was keenly involved in putting together a television movie about comedian John Candy before he was admitted to hospital about two weeks ago.
Peter SIMPSON was born in Port Glasgow, Scotland, on May 29, 1943. He died at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto on June 5, 2007. He was 64. He leaves his second wife, Ilana Frank, six children and three brothers. A private funeral is planned, to be followed by a memorial service in September.

Lambton College founder dies
By Dan McCAFFERY, Sun Media, Thurs., November 22, 2007
Sarnia -- A former Sarnian who served in the German navy during the Second World War, survived four years in a concentration camp and made a career as an educator and writer has died.
Wolfgang FRANKE, founding president of Lambton College, died November 13 in his Toronto home at age 92.
Born in Germany during the First World War, FRANKE was a witness to some of the most tumultuous events in human history.
Growing up in the city of Kiel, he survived the runaway inflation that crippled the German economy during the 1920s.
He sold his first short story to a local newspaper at age 15. He penned nine novels and had scores of articles published.
During the Second War War he served in the German navy, rising to the rank of lieutenant commander.
When the fighting stopped, he was sent to a communist concentration camp in Yugoslavia.
FRANKE was freed in 1949, went to university in Frankfurt, then emigrated to Canada, working as an illustrator for the University of Toronto's botany department.
After graduating from University of Toronto and the University of Ottawa, he served as a high school principal in Essex County before getting Lambton College off the ground.
"He was our first president. The major impact he had on Lambton was building the infrastructure, developing curriculum and hiring faculty," said college spokesperson Cindy BUCHANAN.
He went on to become founding president of New Caledonia College in British Columbia.

FRANKE, Wolfgang E., B.A., M.Sc. (1915-2007)
Educator And Writer
Peacefully at home of natural causes on November 13, at the age of 92. With a lifetime spanning a remarkable time in history for Europe and Canada, he was born in Lünen-Horstmar, Germany on April 14, 1915 during the First World War, and grew up on the Baltic Sea in the city of Kiel during the years of the German Revolution of 1918 and the hyper-inflation of the 1920's. His early education was in Kiel where he sold his first short story to the Kieler Zeitung at the age of fifteen. After teaching elementary school in Duisburg in the Rhineland, he served in the Navy and by the end of the war was a Lieutenant Commander, in charge of radio communications in Trieste, Italy. After the war he survived four years of hardship in a concentration camp in former communist Yugoslavia, living proof of his oft quoted adage from Nietzsche 'That which does not kill us makes us stronger'. Upon his return to Germany in 1949 he resumed his doctoral studies in biology at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt, but decided to emigrate with his first family to Canada in 1951. Part of a large wave of immigrants willing to work hard at any job available, his first employment was as an illustrator in the Botany department of the University of Toronto. He obtained his B.A. at the U of T, and later an M.Sc. in genetics at the University of Ottawa, and worked for a period in plant pathology prior to his career as an inspiring teacher of Biology. He became principal in high schools in Morrisburg and then in Essex where he established an innovative co-op 'Occupations Program' in 1963, which liaised between education and industry, providing high school students with valuable work experience. In 1966 he pioneered in Ontario's fledgling community college system when he became founding president of Lambton College of Applied Arts and Technology in Sarnia. There he developed an innovative curriculum, hired faculty and interviewed students. Similarly, he was then founding president of the College of New Caledonia in Prince George, B.C. in 1969. Toward the end of his career he was founding principal of a private high school in Toronto. A naturally talented amateur sculptor, artist and musician, he passionately promoted the Arts in all his educational endeavours. In retirement from formal education, he returned to his love of writing, producing numerous stories and essays published in many newspapers and periodicals, as well as nine novels in English and German. Always a man of conviction, he held himself and others to a high personal standard. A tireless social critic in his writings, he was nevertheless totally committed to his adopted country and recalled the glow of pride upon the induction of the Canadian flag in 1965. His description of the character Hans in his fifth novel, Over the Threshold, can be aptly applied to the author: '…a Jack of all trades, a biologist by training, but with a technical bent, a portraitist with leanings to the caricature, a teacher and perpetual student, a music lover and dreamer.' He is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Rose (née VALENTI,) also a teacher, who tirelessly dedicated herself to his publishing efforts and provided devoted personal care in his final years. He was also very proud of daughter Sylvia (Andrew), sons Dean (Susan) and Norman (Carolyn), grandchildren Laura, Xavier, Dix, Egan, Natalie and Nina, and from a previous marriage his daughter Regina and son Ingo. Predeceased by his sister Lotti. Interment will be at Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto. The family will welcome relatives and Friends to a private reception at a future date.

Dad is survived by his 3 children, Peter (Nancy), Paul (Susan), Joan ROGERS (Bill), 7 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.

MINETT, E. Everet (February 23, 1918-september 5, 2007)
Letting go when he was at peace, feeling the love of four generations of family. As a boy and a young man, Everet exhibited extraordinary gifts. He was a brilliant student. He attended University of Toronto Schools where he excelled in classics, languages, science, and music. He later studied math, physics, and chemistry at University of Toronto (Trinity College) and subsequently did graduate work in physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. At age 8, Everet assumed a large measure of family leadership when his father died. Everet discovered his perfect love at age 15 when he saw Alice Caroline PARKER as an angel in a Christmas pageant at St. George's Church in Guelph, Ontario. They were married in 1941 and raised a family of 5 children as they traveled with extended stays in Norwalk, Connecticut, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, Rochester, New York, and Toronto, Ontario, where Alice currently lives. But Everet's and Alice's lifelong geographical passion was Cognashene, Georgian Bay. Along with his wife and young children, Everet fashioned a magical summer paradise. The 40's, 50', 60's, and 70's were exciting times for a gifted scientist in the business world. Everet played significant roles in the Manhattan Project (40's), in the development of RCA's ENIAC and Remington-Rand's UNIVAC computer systems (50's), in senior positions at Xerox (60's), and as director of University of Toronto's UTLAS (70's). In addition, during the 70's and 80's Everet and wife, Alice, worked side by side at their own import and distribution venture in Toronto, The Canadian Tumbler Company. Everet loved us all and was an inspirational mentor. He taught us about fulcrums and levers, and that anything was possible. His children will never forget that inspiration: Peggy WILLARD and her husband, Joe; Charles MINETT and his wife, Nina; Doug MINETT; Jane MINETT and her husband, David KEITH and Bill MINETT and his wife, Teresa. Everet's grandchildren and great-grandchildren will also miss their loving grandfather: Doug WILLARD and his wife, Lorri, and their son, Owen; Suzanne WILLARD; Charlie MINETT; Arthur MINETT; George MINETT; Elizabeth MINETT; Ben MINETT and his wife, Stephanie; Hannah MINETT, her husband, Mike VANSTONE, and their sons, Quinn and Oleh; Alice KEITH; Andy KEITH, Chris KEITH and his wife Sue FRASER, and their children, Ellie and Gillian; Karina KEITH and her husband Brian THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, and their children Sydney, Kira, and Adam; and Bill MINETT and his wife, Teresa, and their children, Everet, Wesley, and Sean. The family wishes to thank the caring and wonderful staff of Saint Michael's Hospital, Toronto. In lieu of flowers, donations to Saint Michael's Hospital Foundation: www.smh.toronto.on.ca or 416-864-5000. Calling hours at Morley Bedford funeral home, 159 Eglinton Avenue West, Toronto on Sunday, September 9th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on Monday from 7 p.m. with service to follow at 8 pm.

FRAZEE, Rowland Cardwell, B.Com, C.C.
Peacefully, surrounded by his family, on July 29th, 2007 in his 87th year. Devoted husband to Marie for 58 years. Sadly missed by his son Stephen, daughter Catherine (Patricia SEELEY,) daughter-in-law Katherine, granddaughter Laura and grand_son Patrick. Survived by his younger sister Barbara THORNTON, her daughter Nan (Colin STEWARD/STEWART/STUART) and fondly remembered by his three sisters-in-law (Anita LOGIE, Kaye RANSOM and Louise LAIDLAW) and many nieces and nephews. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia on May 12, 1921 to descendants of United Empire Loyalists, he grew up in St. Stephen, New Brunswick, where his father was the manager of the Royal Bank. Like so many of his generation, Rowlie FRAZEE enlisted in the Canadian Army in 1941, serving overseas with the Carelton and York Regiment, First Infantry Division. He was wounded three times, once when his cap badge deflected a scrap of German shell which otherwise might have ended his life. After the war ended, Rowlie studied at Dalhousie University (Kings College) in Halifax where he graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in 1948. He joined the Royal Bank that year and worked his way up through the ranks in various management positions in five different provinces. A signal that he was headed to the top came in 1973 when he was made Executive Vice President of the Royal Bank in 1977, Chief Executive Officer in 1979 and Chairman in 1980. He was often sought after to serve as director and served on many boards over the years including Royal Bank of Canada, Ganong Bros Limited, University of New Brunswick Board of Governors, Huntsman Marine Science Centre, Air Canada, Newfoundland Capital Corp, Continental Air lines, The Beaverbrook Art Gallery, Kings College Board of Governors, Home Support Services (Charlotte County, New Brunswick) and New Brunswick Investment Management Corporation. He also served as Chairman of the Business Council on National Issues, National Chair man of Junior Achievement of Canada and served three terms as Chairman of the Roosevelt Campobello International Park Commission. During his career he received many awards, including honourary degrees from six universities (Acadia, Dalhousie, Kings College, Mount Allison, University of New Brunswick and York) and in 2001 was inducted into the New Brunswick Business Hall of Fame. In 1985, he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada and was promoted to Companion in 1991. He proudly wore his Order of Canada lapel pin for the rest of his life. Rowlie was always proud of his Maritime heritage and he and his wife Marie enjoyed a very happy retirement in St. Andrews, New Brunswick where he worked at improving his golf game and tending to his beloved rose garden. His passionate zest for life and public spirited persona was epitomized in a 1983 biography entitled 'Big Banker with a Heart', which praised him for his work for numerous charitable and educational organizations. Rowlie FRAZEE will be remembered as a brave soldier who served his country, a respected businessman, an eloquent speaker and a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Our thanks to Doctor Brian Peer, Doctor Julia Wildish and the team of Extra Mural caregivers for their kindness and dedicated professionalism. Arrangements have been entrusted to the care and direction of MacDonald Funeral Home, 20 Marks Street, St. Stephen, New Brunswick (506-466-3110) from where the first visitation will be held on Thursday afternoon from 2-4 p.m. only and then the second visitation will be held on Thursday evening at All Saints Anglican Church, 75 King Street St. Andrews, New Brunswick from 7-9 p.m. only. The funeral service will be held on Friday, August 3rd, from All Saints Anglican Church at 2: 00 p.m. A reception will immediately follow the service in the adjoining church hall. Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or the charity of the donors' choice would be appreciated by the family. Condolences may be placed or this notice viewed at www.macdonaldfh.com.
