Dusty C's sendoff

The Toronto Sun, past and present, had solid representation at Friday's sendoff for Dusty Cohl at the packed Elgin Winter Garden, as Jim Slotek reports in today's Sun.

Jim, Bruce Kirkland, Liz Braun, Lou Clancy, Eddie Greenspan (one of the Sun's new columnists) and former entertainment editor George Anthony were among the many friends and colleagues saying goodbye to the late co-founder of the Toronto Film Festival.

Cohl, who died of cancer Jan. 11, had a habit of packing theatres and the tributes paid Friday illustrates why.

Jim caps his story with Liz Braun quoting Christopher Wren in Latin: "If you seek his monument, look around you."
