Take One [Jul 15, 1979]


Take One

Take One (1966-79) was a Montréal-based film magazine offering criticism and news about international, Canadian, and Hollywood cinema. Founded by Peter Lebensold, Adam Symansky, and John Roston—alumni of the McGill Film Society—its creation coincided with the burgeoning Canadian film industry, which Take One placed in global context. Articles included essays by filmmakers themselves, such as Brian DePalma and Richard Dreyfuss. The magazine concluded its run in 1979 after publishing 81 issues, but remained sufficiently influential that a 1992 Toronto-based magazine took the same title in homage to the original.
