I got something this week about a German "progressive dark metal" band - totally NOT my thing music-wise. I'm really glad you got me started playing this one, though...it's always something unexpected!

Is that the same Malawi from which Madonna adopted her child?

I tried this wiki once with less than stellar results, but maybe it's time for me to do it again. By the way, I have tagged you for the Blogging Tips Meme, which actually has some helpful blogging tips we can all use. I hope you have fun with it.

I'll admit that I don't always post the FIRST thing that comes up when I click the Random button.....

I did it, and I came up with something good after all! Thanks, Karen. BTW, this is what came up on the first click. Also, notice that I've put this on my writing blog.

William H. Daniels

William H. Daniels (December 1, 1901 - June 14, 1970) was a film cinematographer best known as Greta Garbo's personal lensman. He worked regularly with director Erich von Stroheim.

His career as a cinematographer extended fifty years from the silent film Foolish Girls (1922) to Move (1970), although he was an uncredited camera operator on two earlier films (1919 and 1920). He also was a producer of some films in the 1960s and was President of American Society of Cinematographers 1961-63.

He was quoted as saying "I didn't create a 'Garbo face.' I just did portraits of her I would have done for any star. My lighting of her was determined by the requirements of a scene. I didn't, as some say I did, keep one side of her face light and the other dark. But I did always try to make the camera peer into the eyes, to see what was there."

Daniels was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1901. On his passing in 1970 in Los Angeles, California, William H. Daniels was interred in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale, California.
