Did Hans Namuth kill Jackson Pollock?: The Problem of Documenting the Creative Process

Date: 28 April 2007 Time: 9.30 pm

When Hans Namuth and Jackson Pollock finished filming on the Saturday before Thanksgiving in 1950 they walked inside from

the barn, out of the cold. Pollock walked over to the sink, reached down, pulled out a bottle of whiskey and said to Namuth,

"This is the first drink I've had in two years. Dammit, we need it!"

The rest, as they say, is history.
