Adam Blair is a professional writer/editor who earns his keep covering the business world. He blames his obsession with film on a high school job as a movie theater usher, where repeated viewings of such films as Airplane, The Shining and Friday the 13th placed his mental health in jeopardy. His musings and meanderings on film and other creative arts appear on his "Grin without a Cat" website at www.adamblairviews.com. He is THE source for movie and TV trivia among his family and friends, who nevertheless continue to associate with him.
