He was the 'king of real estate' who kick-started Toronto film festival
After retiring 'at the top of his game,' he made a trip to France and happened on Cannes and its film fête. Thus inspired, he returned home to help launch one of his own
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S10
A lawyer who made serious money in real-estate deals in the 1950s and 1960s, Dusty COHL was seduced by the movie business and spent the last 40 years schmoozing backers, stars and directors. Tall and lanky, with a grizzled beard and an ear-to-ear grin, and wearing his trademark black cowboy hat festooned with shiny pins and badges and outré T-shirt, he appeared to be the epitome of louche.
In fact, the film producer and co-founder of the Toronto International Film Festival was a family man who remained married for more than 50 years to the girl he met in high school. He was also a genial and supportive father figure to many fledgling producers, directors and programmers in the Canadian film business.
"He was unconventional in his ideas and his dress, but he wasn't unconventional in his living habits and his loyalties," said film and television producer Ted KOTCHEFF. "He was the very heart and soul of the Canadian film industry and the most lovable man that I have ever met, hands down," said Mr. KOTCHEFF, who had known Mr. COHL "longer than anybody," dating back to summer camp in the mid-1940s.
"Dusty broke the mould of the bland, boring, polite Canadian, which was very important in the early days [of the Toronto film festival]," said public-relations consultant Helga STEPHENSON, who began working for Toronto International Film Festival in 1978 and was executive director from the mid-1980s until the early 1990s.
"With his huge sense of fun and flair, he helped a lot in getting critics and filmmakers here," she said. "Once they got here, they discovered it was a superb film festival, with an incredible audience, and that Toronto was a great place to be. But getting them here was the trick - and then he would entertain them once they were here."
Murray (Dusty) COHL was born on Euclid Street in Toronto in the same year as the stock-market crash on Wall Street. His father, Karl, was a Communist who worked as a house painter, a union organizer and, ultimately, as an insurance agent, while his mother, Lillian, sold bed linens at Eaton's, according to Brian D. Johnson in Brave Films, Wild Nights: 25 years of Festival Fever.
An only child, he attended Charles G. Fraser elementary school and Camp Naivelt (New World), a Bolshevik Jewish summer camp west of Toronto, from the age of 5. It was at camp that he shed his hated first name and acquired the nickname Dusty. Another camper, Harris Black, was called Blacky, and the kids decided that Murray COHL should be Dusty, as in coal dust.
"He was my camp counsellor," said Mr. KOTCHEFF, who attended Camp Naivelt from 1943 through 1945. "He was my boyhood hero." What Mr. KOTCHEFF loved about Dusty were the same qualities that have always captured people's affections: "He was so full of good humour and intelligence, and he was a born non-conformist. Even back then, he was unconventional in his dress, which appeals to young people." Dusty let his T-shirt hang outside his shorts while the other counsellors were all tucked in.
"He had his own style," said Mr. KOTCHEFF, who also has a much darker memory from those days: seeing his hero "ejected" from camp in the summer of 1945 after a "kangaroo court" found him guilty of being an "anarchist Trotskyite" - at 16. "He always saw that as a very amusing incident in his life, but that was Dusty. He was dedicated to following his own vision of things. He was an original."
After public school, he went to Harbord Collegiate from 1941 to 1947. That's where he met Joan CAIRN, although she says she knew of him from Camp Naivelt. When he asked her to dance, she felt very comfortable in his arms, and thought he might be "the one." After high school, he went to the University of Toronto, earning a bachelor of arts degree in 1950. On December 23, 1951, he and Joan married (they just celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary) and eventually had three children, Robert, Karen and Steven.
After the U of T, he entered Osgoode Hall Law School, coming first in his class one year and graduating with a law degree in 1954. For most of the next 20 years, Mr. COHL worked as a zoning and real-estate lawyer, putting together land parcels and property developments in Toronto and Florida. He was "tremendously successful," according to his close friend, film producer Barry Avrich, but retired from the business "at the top of his game" when people starting referring to him as "the king of real estate."
In 1964, he and his wife were holidaying in the south of France and she suggested they visit Cannes. By chance, they found a parking place in front of the Carlton Hotel, ordered a drink on the terrace and "saw and felt the pulse of the action" of the annual film festival, which happened to be on at the same time. "I was like a kid falling into Disneyland," he said later. It was another four years before they returned to Cannes, but, from then on, they were regulars at its film festival.
In 1973, he met William (Bill) MARSHALL, a filmmaker and communications whiz who had helped propel David Crombie into the Toronto mayor's office in 1972 and was then working as his executive assistant. Both Mr. MARSHALL and Mr. COHL have claimed credit for the idea of launching a film festival in Toronto; what is certainly true is that they both embraced the concept as enthusiastically as seals sliding down water slides.
After visiting film festivals in Berlin and Atlanta, the two men went to Cannes, where they rented a suite at the Carlton, ensconced themselves in the bar on the terrace and started schmoozing. "Dusty was the only person I knew in Canada who had actually been to Cannes in those days," Mr. MARSHALL recollected in a telephone interview.
"There were only about six of us making movies," he said. "We wanted a film festival [in Toronto] because foreign people might come and we'd get to sell our movies." Henk VAN DER KOLK (Mr. MARSHALL's partner in a company they enthusiastically called the Film Consortium of Canada) was the managing director of the festival, Mr. MARSHALL was the executive director, and Mr. COHL was "the accomplice." As such, he was to schmooze and, in Mr. MARSHALL's estimation, there was nobody better at talking, bringing people together and creating a buzz.
In October of 1976, they launched the Toronto International Film Festival at the Ontario Place Cinesphere on a budget of about $500,000, half of which was in goods and services. That first year, they wantonly courted Warren Beatty through a Toronto cousin, but he failed to show. Unexpectedly, Jeanne Moreau and Dino De Laurentiis did. And they had a bit of luck by screening Cousin, Cousine, which was later nominated for three Academy Awards.
In 1978, they defied the then-powerful but now-defunct Ontario Censor Board by showing an uncut version of In Praise of Older Women, based on Stephen Vizinczey's bestseller, and almost caused a riot by handing out 4,000 passes to a screening at a cinema that only seated 1,000. The overflow crowd engendered one of the slick-talking Mr. MARSHALL's more elusive qualifiers: "We're not oversold. We're just over-attended."
After three years, Mr. COHL and Mr. MARSHALL retreated and Wayne CLARKSON became the first of several professional managers of the burgeoning festival.
In addition to Toronto International Film Festival, which has long been one of the top film festivals in the world, Mr. COHL put his "accomplice" skills to work, co-producing feature films such as Outrageous! - based on a short story by Margaret Gibson (obituary, March 15, 2006) and starring her friend, impersonator Craig Russell - and The Circle Game. He was a consulting producer on The Last Mogul, Rush: Grace Under Pressure Tour, Guilty Pleasure, The Extraordinary World of Dominick Dunne and Bowfire and was executive producer of The Scales of Justice, which began on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio in the 1980s and was aired on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television from 1991 to 1995. Hosted by lawyer Edward GREENSPAN, it featured docudramas based on real cases in Canadian criminal law.
Mr. COHL also worked with his cousin, rock promoter Michael COHL, famous for organizing tours for the Rolling Stones and other pop stars, on a concert series on cable television in the 1980s called First Choice Rocks. Less successfully, the two COHLs worked with basketball legend Wilt Chamberlain in an attempt to bring an National Basketball Association franchise to Toronto. "I miss him already," Michael COHL said yesterday. "He was great."
In 1990, Mr. COHL started the Floating Film Festival, an almost annual, luxury Caribbean cruise featuring films programmed by critics such as Roger Ebert, Richard Corliss and George Anthony. The Floating Film Festival combined the best elements of "the smallness of Telluride, the warmth of Toronto and the glamour of Cannes," according to Mr. COHL. It even had its own emblematic T-shirt depicting an art deco-style cruise ship flying a flag with a cowboy hat inspired by Mr. COHL's black Stetson. The 10th edition of the Floating Film Festival, which will sail from Los Angeles on February 25, is dedicated to Mr. COHL and features a tribute to actress Gena Rowlands.
Mr. COHL was also a member of the founding board of Canada's Walk of Fame, which, since its inception in 1998, has celebrated the achievements of more than 100 music, arts and sports celebrities, including Wayne Gretzky, Karen Kain, Gordon Pinsent and Kiefer Sutherland, by encasing their names in a slab of cement on the sidewalks in the entertainment district. In May of 2003, Mr. COHL was invested into the Order of Canada for "his pride in Canadian talent" and his "desire to celebrate our achievements."
Late last fall, he was diagnosed with liver cancer.
Murray (Dusty) COHL was born in Toronto on February 21, 1929. He died at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre of liver cancer on January 11, 2007. He was 78. Mr. COHL is survived by his wife, Joan, three children and five grandchildren. There will be a private family funeral followed by a public celebration of his life at a later date.

As a pediatrician and allergist/immunologist, Nora touched the lives of countless families as she practiced medicine with deep compassion, caring and clinical astuteness. After surviving eleven-hour brain surgery in 1989, she founded L.I.F.E. Philippines Foundation, an organization devoted to Livelihood, Infrastructure, Food and Education projects to aid the poor in her native Philippines. She led numerous medical missions providing free medical and surgical services to poor Filipinos and brought several children with life-threatening congenital heart defects to Canada for surgery. Nora was an artist who loved to paint and sing, particularly as part of the St. Bonaventure's Church choir. Her nurturing nature extended to her garden, and horticulture was a lifelong passion. As a wife and mother, she lived and led by example and benefited her entire family through selfless sharing from her endless well of love. She always, unquestioningly said 'yes' when asked for help and she always remembered everyone who helped her, returning the favour in times of need. After a long and courageous battle with metastatic endometrial cancer, she passed away peacefully in her home in the company of her devoted husband, Roy Edward, and her loving children, Leah Marie and Lara Ann STEPHENSON. She is survived by her sisters Victoria, Aureola and Diva and brothers Florencio, Eutropio and Emmanuel. Her grace, peace and courage throughout the battle brought us closer together, taught us all and left us wiser. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 13th. Mass of Christian Burial will be held in St. Bonaventure's Church, 1300 Leslie Street on Monday, April 14th at 10: 30 a.m. Interment to follow. If desired, Nora would be joyous if donations were made to Rotary District 7070 Gift of Life Inc. through her husband Roy c/o Lerners LLP 130 Adelaide, Street West, Suite 2400, P.O. Box 95, Toronto, Ontario, M5H 3P5. Condolences and memories may be for warded through www.humphreymiles.com.
When you walk through a storm, Hold your head up high, And don't be afraid of the dark. At the end of the storm is a golden sky, And the sweet silver song of a lark. Walk on through the wind, Walk on through the rain, Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown. Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart, And you'll never walk alone. You'll never walk alone.

McARTHUR, Alexander Arthur, " Jock," "VE3DJ,"
Died at home in Ancaster on May 6th 2008, in his 92nd year.
Beloved husband of the late Elizabeth Janet, father of Lawrie (Tom) and Julia (Justin), and Grandad of his adored grandchildren, Jane, Alex and Chris, by all of whom he is missed and lovingly remembered.
Jock was fascinated with electronics and his lifelong hobby was amateur radio from age 13 when he got his first amateur radio licence for code, to his later experiments with amateur television. He graduated in Electrical Engineering from the University of Toronto, and was President of his Class of '39.
During the Second World War he served with the Royal Canadian Signals Corps in Italy and the Netherlands, retiring as a major at the end of the war. He was a Life Member of the Royal Canadian Military Institute.
His working life was with Canadian Westinghouse, notably, managing the Turbine and Generator Division, and retiring as Assistant to the President.
Jock's community involvement included serving as Church Warden for Saint_John's Anglican Church in Ancaster, and membership on the Board of Directors of Saint Peter's Hospital, Hamilton, where he was intimately involved in the major building projects undertaken by Saint Peter's during his tenure. With Janet, he volunteered enormous time and effort over many years to the Art Gallery of Hamilton. He headed the building committee of the "new" Art Gallery of Hamilton, now a pillar of cultural life in Hamilton and environs, as well as serving as President and Chairman of the Board of Directors.
He bequeathed to his children and grandchildren enquiring minds, a fascination with science and nature, and a love of life and fun.
Jock was able to have his wish of remaining in his home of 54 years because of the fond and able care of Tammy CARLSON, her family, and Richard BELL. He also benefited from wonderful medical and personal care from Doctor Michael STEPHENSON, the staff at Community Care Access Centre (Hamilton), and many others.
