Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

Amen to that, Hugh.

Great Cinematographers, Part 17: Sol Polito

Cinematographer Sol Polito (1892-1960) lent a special touch to exuberant musicals, swashbuckling adventures, goofy comedies, solemn dramas and everything in between.

happy birthday, William Holden - I count him as one of my top five favorite actors, a fellow who proved he was much more than a sex symbol. Did any actor of the Golden Age ever make a transition quite so great as Holden’s growth from the goofy sailor of 1942’s The Fleet’s In to the brilliant cynicism of 1950’s Sunset Blvd.? It’s more than just a change in writing and directing; it’s the proof of Holden’s development as an actor. When I see him in those films and in such diverse roles as in Born Yesterday, Stalag 17, Forever Female, Sabrina, Picnic, The Proud and Profane, The Bridge on the River Kwai, Paris - When It Sizzles, The Towering Inferno, Network and When Time Ran Out…, I am awed by his range. And when I see his guest appearance on “I Love Lucy,” I fall in love with Bill Holden all over again.
