Hemingway Adventure


Michael Palin - Hemingway AdventureThe Hemingway Adventure would not have been possible without the help of many people.

Martha Wailes was one of the first to come on board and her enthusiasm and exhaustive thoroughness in picking through the rich detail of Hemingway’s life has helped make this book possible. As producer of the series, she showed indefatigable energy in organising, chivvying and cajoling people into helping us. Mirabel Brook guided us round the world with a steady hand and she and Laura Tutt turned a complicated shooting schedule into a precision instrument.

My co-adventurers and assorted towers of strength were David Turnbull, director, bon viveur, and the man who coined our title, Nigel Meakin, cameraman and bull impersonator, Jay Jay Odedra, his assistant and John Pritchard, who recorded every roar, squeal and explosion - and those were just my pieces to camera.

In every country we needed special advice and we would have been lost without the help of Ernesto Juan Castellanos in Cuba, Elizabeth Nash and Robert Misik in Spain, Diane Saccilotto and Dajna Annese in Italy, Françoise Jamet and Brian Ferinden in Paris, Richard Bonham in Kenya, Patrick and Samantha Moray in Uganda, Mary Perkins, Carli Reardon, Rita Brown in Key West and Brad Leech in Petoskey.
