Tom Daly

Canadian film producer

Tom Daly (born April 25, 1918) is a Canadian film director and producer, who was the head of Studio B at the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) in the 1950s and '60s.

This biographical sketch of Hartmann by Thomas C. Daly and Thomas A. G. Daly was originally published in Our Life with Mr Gurdjieff: Definitive Edition, London: Penguin Arkana, 1992.

Tom Daly read Ouspensky’s In Search of the Miraculous on its publication in 1949, then had the good fortune to meet and befriend the de Hartmanns while they were living near Montreal in 1951. First published here, he describes the setting and impact of Thomas de Hartmann’s 1954 talk to the then fledgling Toronto group.

Three selections of piano music from the Triangle Editions Recordings, chosen with commentary by Tom Daly, were performed by Thomas de Hartmann and reproduced in audio (MP3) format. In addition to carrying the authority of being the composer’s recordings, these evocative performances from the 1950’s are unsurpassed in their own right.
