Adam Blair, AdamBlairViews’/Grin Without a Cat’s Editor-in-Chief, is a professional writer/editor who has earned his keep by covering numerous aspects of the business world, most recently for Fairchild Publications and Women’s Wear Daily . He blames his obsession with film on a high school job as a movie theater usher, where repeated viewings of films such as Airplane, The Shining and Friday the 13th placed his mental health in jeopardy. Nevertheless, he is a 1984 graduate of Yale University , where he served as Arts Editor of the Yale Daily News and, on some weekends, attended as many as five films before returning bleary-eyed to class Monday morning.
Since then, his comments on film and other creative arts have appeared in Films in Review, Harpie’s Bazaar, Cinemarati.com, and since 2002, on his own website (www.adamblairviews.com), which contains musings and meanderings on film, theater and books. When not meeting editorial deadlines, Adam can be found hovering around New York City ’s Film Forum, Angelika and Walter Reade Theaters or curled up at home with his partner Noel and their cat, Asta, watching films by Howard Hawks, George Cukor or the Coen Brothers. Blair is THE source for movie and TV trivia among his family and friends, who nevertheless continue to associate with him.
