John Dunning.jpg
John Dunning began his career on the silver screen at  the candy counter in his father's movie theatre in Ville-Emard.  He went on to make movies that were cult classics such as "ValĂ©rie' and the box-office hit "Meatballs."

He also inspired some of today's greatest Canadian filmmakers, including David Cronenberg and Ivan Reitman. He was inducted into the Canadian Film and Television Hall of Fame in 2007. 

John Dunning started writing his memoirs before his death in 2011. Then Montreal Gazette columnist and author Bill Brownstein picked up the trail. He's now completed John Dunning's story. The book is called "You're Not Dead Until You're Forgotten".
