I remember SPEED with Keanu Reeves, one of the first Fox films I saw on CANAL+ in France. Long before John Wick, Reeves was wearing a bullet-proof jacket as he tried to save a bus while Sandra Bullock was driving. SPEED was all about adrenaline. That same year, I joined Canal+ when Mark Kaner, who will become my mentor and friend many years later at Fox, left it.
I remember GRAPES OF WRATH (1940) MY DARLING CLEMENTINE (1946), KISS OF DEATH (1947) and many others, and how Gina Brogi at Fox (who will also become my boss and friend some years later), was happily surprised that we knew, liked and licensed the black & white features of the Fox catalogue for our French movie channels at CANAL+.
