Mim became one of the leading artist’s agents in music and film in London from the 60s onwards. He put together director and talent for the film Sympathy for the Devil for producer Michael Pearson’s company Cupid Productions. Mim then set out for Morocco in search of the roots of Blues music, a trip he’d planned to undertake with his friend Brian Jones, before the legendary musician passed away. Michael and Cupid went on to produce the classic car-chase movie Vanishing Point, an iconic piece of Noir somehow pure in its portrayal of a modern driven but also random world.
