Garrett Brown, Stanley Kubrick, and Danny Lloyd on the set of The Shining (1980)

In 1976, Garrett Brown became an inventor and, as WNYC’s Sara Fishko tells us, changed the face of movies. He and his invention, the Steadicam, are being honored at a film series starting tomorrow. More in this edition of Fishko Files…

The Film Society of Lincoln Center series "Going Steadi: 40 Years of Steadicam" starts tomorrow at the Walter Reade Theater. For tickets and more information, visit
