Danuta Kean is an award winning freelance arts journalist whose work appears everywhere from The Times and Independent on Sunday to the Financial Times. As well as collecting editorial titles, she presents Textual Analysis on Channel4Radio.com, which features half hour in-depth interviews with authors. Her husky tones are also regularly heard on BBC Radio 4. Her earliest memories are of having a tantrum aged two after seeing Mary Poppins and having a tooth fall out during The Glenn Miller Story, which was on the telly. Her favourite films always include The Night of the Hunter, Amelié, The Third Man, His Girl Friday and Taxi Driver. So far this year the films she has enjoyed most are Brick, Good Night, and Good Luck and The Wind That Shakes The Barley. If she could be in one scene of any movie it would be as the cat in the doorway with Orson Welles in The Third Man. If she could change the world she would make Jimmy Stewart president (with Johnny Depp and George Clooney to follow); Bill Nighy queen; The Smiths free on the NHS; and ban facial hair. Beyond film her passions are live music, good books and walking. Her weaknesses clothes and reruns of Midsomer Murders... On her iPod are everything by the Smiths, too much buy the Fall and The National. When not writing, she likes to gaze out of the window thinking profound thoughts, such as, why do they put pockets in baby clothes? If she ever gets to write a book it will be called: Dad Loved Johnny: Or How I Came To Love Country Music...
