"We had some guys that went off to New York and worked on the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films. We had a couple guys go off to work at visual effects houses. We had some that went off to China and worked in documentary films there. And so I guess they all kind of took me under their wing and I got to kind of see life through their eyes for a while and day onboard me to their projects as this young kid that was getting really shitty duties on their projects, but it was dope. And eventually, I got good at editing. So I became an editor at freelance editor while I was still in high school and all that. I ended up working with ray on television, Hong Kong. I was editing some of their documentaries and a buddy of mine that I worked with in the corporate world. We were both moonlighting in the film industry. He ended up going to the American Film Institute. He became a directing fellow there. And I edited the three short films that got him accepted into the American Film Institute. So that was just that kind of set me up and then I worked at my first agency ever. I worked at as a video editor initially, kind of cutting together demo reels for them and content for their clients and then they turned me into a flash developer before flash got killed off by Apple. Steve Jobs in one letter, they turned me more into a dev than anyone else and kind of let me see what happened when you press a button and something bounces on a screen. They did that. And I think in a big way kind of set me up for where I'm at now. So you kind of got introduced in the tech at an early age, but through media. I think that's pretty cool. Yeah, I mean, I really just always love the creative process and being able to geek out to kind of pull that process together. It's been a lot of fun. It's been a lot of fun and you see a lot of stuff and yeah, I think the common thread in my career though has been being on the cutting edge of technology. So whether it was the film and using Jane TS versions of file with the pro on these ridiculously powerful computers, I did a stint at Canada pension plan, investment board. So I was a systems analyst for them. Working on some hardcore service stuff years later after film and agency stuff working in AR and VR again cutting edge of technology. So I think that's always been kind of the constant in my life and in my career. And now you went to Ryerson university, which I think by the time this interview comes out, people know it's now Toronto metropolitan university. But you majored in fine and studio arts as part of their new media program, they're like, what was your time there? It wasn't great. You know, so I went to I went to Ryerson because the founder of my first agency, he was actually in my batch the first batch of new media graduates at Ryerson. That guy has always been like my hero and I love him to death. Shout out to Spence Spencer Sanders. I kind of want to be like him. So I went to Ryerson and learned hop into the new media program over there..

The American Film Institute is honoring Julie Andrews with this year's life achievement award. Now, we're going to replay parts of another conversation between the actress and Terry gross. This one, from 2019. In recent years, Julie Andrews has lent her voice to the Despicable Me and Shrek and Aquaman movies, and the voice of lady whistledown on the Netflix TV series Bridgerton. And on camera, in 2017, she starred in Julie's green room, a Netflix children's series, which she also co created. When Julie Andrews returned to fresh air to talk with Terry, she had just released her second memoir, co authored with her daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton, its title is home work, a memoir of my Hollywood years. Julie Andrews got her start in her parents vaudeville act when she was 9 years old. One of the reasons I really enjoy it when I'm working because I've worked my entire life. I mean, to the, to the point where I really wasn't attending school, I had to have a tutor that came and worked with me, but I really, I would love to have attended university and I had a very sort of rarefied and rather pitiful education in a way. My mother said to me, oh, you'll get a much better education from life out there. And to a certain extent, I did. But I was always scrambling to catch up on history or things that really fascinated me. Julie, you started psychoanalysis. After you were in a committed relationship with Blake Edwards, and I can't remember if this was before or after you were you were actually married. But basically the way you described it before. When you start a cycle analysis, it's like a damn opened up. I mean, you just started like weeping. And I'm wondering if you felt you had to hold in a lot of feelings and just be strong and not show any vulnerability because one, you grew up during the war years, you were living in London during World War II when you were getting bombed all the time. And you were going in and out of bomb shelters. You were blowing a whistle and literally warning people when the planes were coming when you were a child. And then your child and your touring with your parents and vaudeville performing in the show must go on no matter what. So did that kind of teach you to just like hold everything in. Yes, absolutely. Whatever it was that I'd been sort of being stiff up a lip about in my youth. And I did take care of most of my family in every sense financially and emotionally. Because we were, you know, my stepfather was alcoholic and it was not an easy situation, but there was a lot that I needed to sort out in my head and the failure of my first marriage which hurt a lot and I wasn't sure about anything and I was the wonder is that my wonderful therapist suddenly realized that what I craved probably more than anything was an education and so being a Merlin like personality. He decided to give me one and I got so many answers in terms of some of the things in life that I needed to learn. And it was a phenomenal experience for me. If I wanted to learn about astronomy or geology or anything in life, history, geography, just I could ask any question and he would be able to answer it. So Blake Edwards became your husband, but he also directed you in several films. He directed you, SOB, which was a satire of Hollywood in ten, which was a romantic comedy Victor Victoria in which about midlife crisis. And midlife crisis for the men. Victor Victoria, which you played a woman impersonating a man in drag. You know, also a comedy a woman, right? Yes, and you have a great show stopping a number in that. But he saw you really differently than the preconception that people have. I guess that having having me as a wife and are sleeping together and being a great, we were married well, we knew each other 44 years before he sadly passed away. But he was somebody that knew me very, very well. And I think I knew him very well. This was a marriage that lasted, and it was complicated and wonderful, and quite magical at times, and he was the most mercurial, talented, attractive man, and it was quite an experience to be married to Blake Edwards, believe me. But I mean, just going back to him directing you, you were topless in one scene in one of his films. There's a lot of gender stuff. It's very daunting, Terry, when your husband says, in a love scene that you're doing with your leading man on camera, he says, well, that's fine, darling, but I know you can do it better. And that's rather difficult in the film studio when you're filming it. Julie Andrews, speaking to Terry gross in 2019. The American Film Institute has bestowed her with this year's life achievement award in a celebration to be televised next Thursday on TNT. Coming up, I review season three of evil, the TV series returning Sunday on paramount plus. It's from Robert and Michelle king, creators of the good wife and the good fight. This is fresh air.

We made the decision to cover the standard installation of a level two charging outlet for our eligible Chevrolet customers who purchase or lease a 2022 bolt EUV or bolt EV. Because we're hearing from our customers that home charging is the majority of where the charging takes place. 7, 8 years ago, there weren't many long-range electric vehicles on the road and particularly not any long-range affordable electric vehicles on the road.

"And more. I'm Jay Williams. If I've learned one thing from my journey to the NBA and beyond, it's that we all have moments in life where our limits are tested. What I want to talk about is how we define those limits and what it means to exceed them. My show is a blueprint for how to do that. From some of the biggest names in sports, business, and culture. Listen to the limits from NPR. My guest Guillermo del Toro directed and co wrote the new film nightmare alley, a film noir set in the world of carnies and grifters. It's in theaters and streaming on Hulu and HBO Max. Nightmare alley was named one of the ten best films of 2021 by the American Film Institute. Del toro is also known for his two hellboy films, pan's labyrinth, and the shape of water which won four Oscars, including best picture and best director. Nightmare alley was adapted from a bleak 1946 novel. The novel was adapted into a 1947 film starring Tyrone Power. The new movie begins in 1939 as America was coming out of the depression and World War II was beginning. Bradley Cooper plays a man who just killed the person we later learn was his father. Buried him under the wooden floor, and set the house on fire, walking out as flames begin to surround him. He takes a bus, gets off at the end of the line, and follows a small man down the street to the carnival, where that man is one of the exhibits. Major mosquito, the tiniest man on record. Cooper becomes part of this traveling carnival, where folks don't care who you are or what you've done. He starts as part of the crew, then becomes part of the grift, as the assistant to a clairvoyant who can read minds and commune with people's deceased loved ones, with the help of a secret code and other acts of deception. But that small time, people pay a quarter of 50 cents or maybe a dollar, eventually Cooper learns the act, passes himself off as a spiritualist and mentalist, and becomes the headliner at top nightclubs for big money, conning wealthy industrialists, doctors and lawyers, but this is film noir, so things don't go well. The film is rich with questions about Carney Khan games, religion, and psychology, and the way that the lines between them can blur. Let's start with a clip from early in the film. Willem Dafoe plays the owner of the carnival, who's also the Barker. Here he is inviting people into the tent where the geek is the geek who bites the heads off chickens and feeds on their blood. However, to remember that this exhibit has been presented solely in the interest of science and education. Where did it come from? Is it a beast or is it a man? Come on in. Come on in and find out. This creature. Has been examined by the foremost scientists of both.

"This is fresh air. I'm Terry gross. My guest Benedict Cumberbatch stars on the new film, the power of the dog. The film was named one of the ten best films of 2021 by the American Film Institute, appeared on many critics ten best lists, and won this year's Golden Globe for best movie drama. Cumberbatch was named best actor for his performance in the film by the national society of film critics, and by film critics associations in New York, Boston, Chicago, Dallas Fort Worth, and the San Francisco Bay Area. You can also see cumberbatch now in Spider-Man: No Way Home as Doctor Strange, and he's just completing work on the new Doctor Strange movie. Cumberbatch was nominated for an Oscar for his starring role in the film the imitation game, based on the story of Alan Turing the mathematical genius who was instrumental in breaking the German enigma code in World War II. Cumberbatch has played other real people like Stephen Hawking and Julian Assange. He's famous for his role as a contemporary version of Sherlock Holmes in the British TV series Sherlock. The power of the dog was directed by Jane campion, adapted from the novel of the same name, and is set in 1925 in Montana. Cumberbatch plays Phil, who along with his brother, played by Jesse Plemons, owns a cattle ranch. Film is hyper masculine. He skilled at cutting the testicles off cattle, herding cattle and breeding leather ropes. He rarely bathes. He's also a bully. He even insults his brother and cause him fat cell. When they're taking the herd to market, they stop at an inn where they have dinner. They're served by a young man, the son of the woman who owns the inn. He has a clean white linen towel over one arm. The way you might see in a fancy restaurant, not a little inn in a tiny town. His manner and the linen make him seem effeminate to fill. While the young man is serving the table where fill his brother and the cow hands are.

It has a shoot, so the delivery people can just dump the whole truck of bananas straight in from the driveway. I love technology. Speaking of technology, did you know the technology used on my first film? Revolutionary. The special effects had just never been done before. They used stop motion animation and matte painting, rear projection, and miniatures all to make me look so alive to those audiences back in 1933. You know, there were even reports of some people fainting because it all just seemed so real. Can you believe that? Well, I guess that's why I'm number 41 on the American Film Institute's list of 100 years, 100 movies. Oops, oops. You won't find Godzilla on that list. Yeah. The plaque is over there next to the reproduced skeletons of all the dinosaurs I felt on skull island. Oh, how I miss that place. Oh. Will you excuse me? Hello, this is Arthur. It's my agent. Hey, Marty, what do you got? Commercial, how much? Yeah, when? Yeah, take it. Bye. Oh, so sorry. It looks like we'll have to cut this interview short. So good of you to come. Listen, if you come back in 9 or ten days, those folks out back should have the pool filled. Bring a towel. Okay. Tata for now. Peek inside a monster ranch and sounds pretty groovy. All right.

become the first Democrat since 1977 to win a second term as governor in the garden state The American Film Institute is setting up a scholarship for women cinematographers following the death of

have all been impacted by the cancellations The Utah based carrier says they've experienced an internal technical issue resulting in approximately 700 cancellations before resolving the issue Thursday I'm Chris garageio You're listening to Bloomberg opinion on Bloomberg radio I'm June grosso Negotiations over President Biden's build back better Bill continue to stall And while both outside observers and participants are saying it's time the president cut a deal that isn't really possible According to opinion columnist Jonathan Bernstein a president has limited tools to get legislation over the line and simply forcing lawmakers to agree isn't one of them He joins us to explain Every time I turn on the news I hear someone saying President Biden needs to sit down with his own Democrats and work out a solution Cut a deal Is that going to happen Well they seem to be moving Towards the deal But there are things that a president can do and things of the president can not do And one of the things that president can not do is to order Joe Manchin or anybody else to agree to something They are independently elected members of the Senate or the House And he's not their boss So there are some ways he can exert influence but it's not as simple as boy if he only tried harder everything would be fine I think what they're hinting at is that he should exert some pressure over the holdout senators or Congress people Well there are things that presidents can do If they for example summon somebody especially from their own party to The White House for meeting That's going to be very difficult for senator to say no I'm going to ignore that But once they come to the meeting president can only do so much Maybe there's some kind of an appointment nomination that that senator wants that the president can do Maybe there's some campaign assistance that the president can do But the bottom line is if Joe Manchin doesn't want $3.5 trillion in a bill he's free not to vote for it And there's very little that the president can do to enforce anything Presidents aren't the bosses of members of the Senate It seems like senator Kristen sinema has been at The White House many times to no avail Well we don't really know to what extent it's happening One of the things about all of this is that a president cham put a deadline on things Can sort of create an artificial deadline And that may get things moving but at the bottom line is it's artificial And if cinema or mansion or whoever it is wants to take more time isn't there yet There's very little president can do to enforce that artificial deadline other than saying well we're done now We're not going to do the bill President Trump could do that but that's hardly in the president's interests Does it seem as if the Democrats have put themselves under some kind of artificial deadline that they have to get this done now Well I think that it makes sense to generate artificial deadlines of sorts because otherwise they'll wait till the real deadline which is probably next year's elections And you never know what could happen between now and then So it does make sense for The White House It makes sense for congressional leaders to put pressure on and to create deadlines But the problem is that they can't enforce those deadlines So that can generate negative media coverage when they're supposed to be a vote At the end of October and there's not going to be a vote at the end of October or whatever it is So if they do get this past and signed will the Democrats necessarily benefit in the midterms from it It's a great question The general history of these things is no with an asterisk There's no real sign that parties are rewarded for legislative success On the other hand presidential popularity matters a lot in midterms and to the extent that there's negative stories about the president including legislation that didn't pass That would tend overall to hurt the president's popularity But for the most part it actually doesn't seem to have very much to do with it We can think of presidents who have extremely effective legislative results in the first two years And had terrible midterms anyway from Lin and Johnson to Barack Obama So there's not a direct correlation there And things like the economy and war and peace tend to be much more important for the midterms Thanks Jonathan That's Jonathan Bernstein a politics and policy columnist for Bloomberg opinion.

"Is dead and another is injured after a prop gun discharged on a New Mexico movie set yesterday The Santa Fe county sheriff says actor Alec Baldwin one of the film's stars just charged the weapon and pares arch reporter Libya is on the line Good morning neta Good morning Scott As far as we know at this point what happened Well it's a situation that's still unfolding and a lot of the details are still slowly coming out The movie is called rust It was being filmed in Santa Fe New Mexico It's a western that's set in the 1880s And it's actually about the accidental killing of her rancher Wow Alec Baldwin was that if the stars along with Francis Fisher and Baldwin was also a producer on the film And what we do know is that yesterday afternoon Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun striking and entering the movie's director and fatally wounding the director of photography She was airlifted to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead No charges have been filed at this point and the sheriff's office of Santa Fe county says an investigation is ongoing I mean I'm thinking of how many movies have guns in them but we do not hear about things like this so often How common is this This is so not common This is just an absolutely rare and completely horrifying incident I mean you're right when you think about all the movies there are that contain guns They're so few accidents When there are exodus on Phillips that's all the time but they almost never involve firearms The very last high profile incident of this type that I can think of was back in 1993 and I don't know if you remember that tragedy when doctor Brandon Lee was accidentally killed right in North Carolina when he was making the movie the crow And he was struck then by a gun that was supposed to fire playing but it contained a bullet And ten years before that in 1984 the actor John Eric hexam accidentally shot himself while he was horsing around with a prop gun on a TV set And both of those incidents were just really traumatizing for the industry And I think it's safe to say they have a lot to do with why there have been so so very few similar accidents over decades of movie making Yeah What do we know about the victims The director told susa was injured He's also the film's writer And there's not a lot publicly known about his condition right now Helena Hutchins was the cinematographer She was only 42 She's originally from Ukraine She'd studied cinematography at the American Film Institute conservatory according to her Facebook page She had worked steadily for the past ten years making movies and shorts and not anything really high profile The last thing she posted on Facebook just a few days ago was a picture of the cast and crew of rust standing in solidarity with a union Izzi that had been threatening to go on strike over the past few weeks in large part of her safety issues I mean in the hour since this story has become public what has the reaction been from the film industry Of course people are devastated The heads of the actress union the director skilled and the cinematographer skilled have all issued statements saying they're devastated and they intend to work to make sure that how this happened and to keep it from ever happening again Now that will be covering a surprising and sad story from the film industry Thank you so much Thanks Scott A new online game lets you experience the supply chain crunch for yourself The beer game apps simulates the steps of selling beer from brewer to drinker Darian Woods and Stacey vanni Smith of NPR is the indicator found it reveals a real world problem Matias lescano made the online be a game And it's debted from a game that he played when he was studying for his masters in production management and logistics We played the beer game It was a paper using just coins This tabletop game with paper and poker chips was invented by an MIT system scientist in the 1960s A typical game goes like this whether it's in person or in messias online version Each player has a different role along the supply chain whether it's retailer wholesaler distributor or brewer And every round you only do one thing You choose how much you're going to order So that sounds reasonable but then When you're in the middle of the supply chain you are receiving bigger and bigger orders So you do the same to your own supplier but it doesn't respond usually quickly enough The supplier usually does not respond quickly enough And pretty soon you've got a backlog of beer orders So you know human nature being human nature you panic and order more beer Exactly And this is part of a pattern that happens almost every time that people sit down and play the beer game It's the further away from the beer customer you are the more volatile your orders are likely be So this pattern is called the bull whip effect The bull whip effect So just like the shape of a whip the part close to your hand goes up and down only a little bit The whips ends though the very tip of the whip goes up and down a lot So a small change in customer demand might mean the factory on the other end gets hundreds of orders one week and no orders the next And you know that becomes really overwhelming And after dealing with real life but with effects while working for a French cosmetics company Matthias wanted to share those lessons with the world That's where he came up with the online game version Yeah so with the indicator we signed on to train I'm Viet I'm a producer On the indicator and I'm the retailer Very excited And Viet bought his beer from our wholesaler I'm Kate I'm the editor of the indicator Kate got her beer from me a distributor And I ordered my beer from yeast I see You were a proud bruh There's no beer without me So after optimistic forecast for more beer customers via ordered a few more cases of beer which further down the chain Stacey you were not particularly happy about I felt like I was in a lot of pressure because I was at the extreme end of the bull whip as the brewer And then I didn't want to respond to extremely 'cause then I was afraid I'd have all this beer on my hands that I couldn't sell Look I mean probably what you should have done Magic says that the key to avoiding the bow up effect is to keep calm and being steady But I'm going to say Stacey eventually you did cave Okay you know what I'm gonna do I'm gonna make 600 cases of beer I don't care I'm just I'm done And look I tried to comfort you trying to say that look this is a teaching tool That was not comforting It's not comforting The sting of the bull whip Still feeling it.

And when we were close enough to the star of our choice, we put our hands out touch their back. They turned around and we quickly moved away. Talk about immature, Kupferberg says she met Lillian Gish and Gloria Swanson. She calls them legends. But she adds that some stars are more difficult than others. I had a job at a fee was I was given a task to stay next to Betty Davis for a whole evening. Because we were raising money for preservation, Film preservation, and she agreed to speak to the press. Wow. She started to talk to the press, and everything she said, was anti preservation. She was being Betty Davis, that crazy character, you know, so grumpy, so above it all elitist. And After 30 40 minutes of hearing her. You know, saying things like how they never should have never should have bothered preserving that film of mine. They should trash you know, trash. Oh, my God.

Listen, I played two churches, three parties on the third forest. I whistle giving him hard headed. All right. I have been nothing but struggle on making people think about this as a choice and thinking about alternative forms of representation. It's also really, really important and thinking critically about why these stereotypes persisted many medical functions they serve in a white, a society that believes in white supremacy. In 1998, the jazz singer was named one of the best American films of all time by the American Film Institute that was based on Vote. Do you think this film can still be considered one of the greats in 2021? Well, you know, I'm sorry. I I have a slightly different view of the American Film Institute's right eight and listings. That's a great entity. I'm glad we have it. It seems to me a lot of the titles Name to the list the list of services, a marketing tool for studios to get people interested in their library. Their backlog. However, the jazz singer, more importantly, to me, is named to the national film Registry by the National Film Preservation Board, on which I have the honor to serve up in Seoul. This'd year And there, it's talking about films of important aesthetic or cultural significance, so I would not in any way, say the jazz singer is the great one of the greatest pounds. Made in America, Certainly not on aesthetic terms. It's very melodramatic. It's much more melodramatic than its source material in Samson radials in short story that itself was inspired by Al Jolson's biography and the play that, Redfield said made from it. Is not great filmmaking. It's fascinating culturally because the film was a hit, and it cannot just be because of the excitement of sound for a Hollywood studio like Warner Brothers. Which was created by Jewish immigrants to decide that they're going to make this film about Jewish life, and the struggle of assimilation is really, really significant. So I think the film has that cultural importance and we need to think about it and watch it, But it's you know. It's no Casablanca. Up s O I I hate to spoil a great folks listening. You wanna watch it? I just It's basically a silent film with these moments of synchronized score, but with these moments of live performance, yes, but we need to not just simply consume but also critique of the very materials that we are drawn to. And then that gives us an opportunity to ask the question. Why is it that we're drawn to a particular film or particular story? And Matthew is kind of pointed to it and what I think I'm most interested in us. Doing especially in this difficult time of racial reckoning is to think about what it is we consume and what we mean by things being great and to understand the role of commerce. In our valuation and validation of so called creative expression distinguishing what's authentic or what's real is really becoming an increasingly difficult challenge. And what these early films show us is just how powerful film can be in creating a reality that may have no basis in reality at all. Memory professors Dr Dwight Andrews and Dr Matthew Bernstein.

How about a stop in Kettering? What do you say, Bob? Hey, how you doing tonight? Good. How about yourself? Good first time caller, But I listen to you a lot. Thank you. Just wonder back up about 30 minutes into your show. He talked about you. Sports. Yes, and the participation Um, come tell my age, I guess it back in the 95 96. I was president of a youth Baseball league here in town, and we competed against two other league. We had over 1700 kids, probably 17 50 kids. We played softball girls softball T ball baseball. We had his from things like third grade all the way up the high school put plane. Today. The league are stand touch with some of the guys because it was a beautiful thing that we had going on. We're lucky to have 600 players right now. So you know that was That was 25 years, but you can see the drop off. So what you were talking about in the participation and the interest in baseball. It's tailing off big and it Z going to show I think over time. Yeah. Junior Junior in the game. They got their hands full. They made efforts. I mean, it's not like they're not trying. I mean, they've sunk whether it's the R B. I programs the Reds Youth Academy there, try and they just need to. I just there. There is so much young town on the in the game and I if that young talent in the inn could it be exposed to young kids more And the kids had more fun playing the game at a young age. I think it's start the cycle in the right direction. Well, we had clinics to in town with The local high schools, the coaches and the players would come out baseball and softball. And those kids love that, too. So you know Waco inside it, obviously, with Baseball, So a lot of times we couldn't get the major league players to come out because they were too busy playing ball themselves. So yeah, but, yes, a shame that's failing off and I hate it because it's a beautiful time that we had. You know to go after the diamonds every night that week, and what these kids playing ball? No doubt. Hey, I'm glad you were listening. And it really means a lot. You called Call again sometime. Okay. Thank you. Take care of Thank you. You as well Coming up, Remember, Aito, eight will do the off the beaten path topic. It's from the American Film Institute. The top 100 movie quotes of all time. More specifically your favorite movie. Quotes of all time. The beauty of a movie quote. Is it staying power and how it enters our normal conversations. Were you drop a line in the middle of saying something that's related to a movie? That's the stuff we're talking about. Will do that coming up in the eight o'clock hour and then sterling is in it. Nine. Let's talk some more reds. Hello, Mark. Hey, Lance. Good evening. How are you? I'm well, thanks for calling. Hey, your comp your conversation and comments on the Reds caught my attention. That's why I'm cooling in. You know, I read a couple of weeks ago that you know the Reds were concerned there the Reds. Basically we're talking about having social distancing this year at the game, which is great. If the team is bad, they won't have to worry about social distance because nobody's gonna show up anyway. You know the whole notion about and I don't know what the Reds balance sheet looks like, how much cash they have. I'm sure their cash situation is not good. You know nobody's would be after last year. But quite frankly, I mean, you have you basically going in the last year you had a team that had a horrible record over the last six or seven years. They weren't very good last year until the last You know, two weeks their season they didn't hit. They didn't you know they didn't hit. They were horrible when they're not making any changes. Obviously, we're trying to improve it. And the only thing you get out of there as well, if they all come back and hit the back of their baseball card will be fine. Yeah. If we all get over Cove, and we'll be fine, too, so So you know if I'm the Reds, I think you know, I think you better go out and make a little bit of a splash because if you want to have any chance of getting anybody down there Particularly the team doesn't play well. When they start. What if they start then where are you? You know it's funny. You say that and I had planned this for a topic next week, and I'll address it now as well, because you hit on it. The idea of what moment? Um are the reds going to create for their fan base? There was no there was no Reds fest this year. There was no caravan this year. Two years ago, the buzz was created by the Big Dodger Trade and Yasiel Puig took the town by storm on a cold Winter day. Last year, they Spent 100 and 50 million in free agency, and it seemed like every day there was a press conference to announce somebody knew this offseason..

"Syriza's Has been. You know the talk in the gossip for years. But finally, a new Syriza is in early development with HBO. Max. They want to develop something the way Disney is. Been developing their star wars and you know they're successful movie packages so alive Action Harry Potter TV Syriza. They say that it's going to be a prequel, so it would be a pre Hogwarts. Probably pre, you know, Harry and the characters that we know from Harry Potter. It'll be a Whole new cast and how Hogwarts got started. And you know all that, but very early in development, but HBO maxes they want to put it on the air. And what's this story about the TV show? Demi Lovato is getting yes, she's going to be getting it's a comedy. You know, I don't think this is a result of her amazing performance on the inauguration special Last week, she was the one that did the Bill Withers Song a lovely day. Which was great on showed. What a great singer that she has. I think just the timing is coincidental. That they make this announcement less than a week after she did that amazing performance, But she's been signed Tol head up a new comedy that's going to be coming out. It's an odd premise for a sitcom. It's based around a bunch of people who have eating disorders. And so I guess. Guess that's going to be a laugh Riot. And and here you're so interestingly, Demi Lovato did go into a rehab center to with with the eating disorder issues. So this is obviously something near and dear to her. They can find some laughs in it all the better. Another Hollywood pitch meeting. I would have liked to have been a fly on the wall on s. So you say it's a comedy about what? Yeah, these people, they they have an eating disorder and they get very sick. Lot of laugh. Did you ever see the Dom DeLuise movie years ago, though, called Fat so No, I didn't and and Bancroft actually directed it. It was her directorial debut. And it's a story about a guy who is a compulsive eater. You know, living in an Italian home, You know where food is the epicenter of everything so it actually it zig I with the kneading disorder, but it actually wasn't pretty funny Movie. Okay, whatever it takes to make us feel good, I'll tell you some of the American Film Institute. Whatever they do is terrific. And Is. I know there's a story. I saw something online this morning. Is this a list? They came out with again or show what they're going to be listening. They're their best movies of the year soon. But yesterday they released what they considered to be the best television Syriza's on the air and Netflix captured most of the awards. Bridger Tin was on the list as one of the best of the year. The crown. The Queen's gambit and unorthodox Disney Plus was mentioned for their man DeLorean. They also got an award for adapting the musical Hamilton for television. Showtime's The Good Lord Bird who lose Mrs America. Ted Lasso on Apple TV, Plus Better call. Saul was the only cable Syriza's that got mentioned, And this is kind of a sad sign of the times, not a single show on network television over the air broadcast television. Was mentioned on the A violist of the best television shows of the year. Not surprising, and those are all good shows the one I am resisting. Marianne and all their friends are talking it up. But Bridger Town, um I gonna like that town. I think you are going to really Yeah. I think you're gonna like it. I mean, on the surface, It looks like a period piece. And when I first heard about that, I was like, Okay, I'm out. Me too. I'll find some three Stooges reruns to watch that, too. You know, that's more on my intellectual level. But I watched a couple of the Bridger towns and it's very compelling. It's very contemporary. Even though it's a period piece and it's ah, you know, it's a little on the steamy side also, I can see why I watched the whole thing yet, But I can understand why people are absolutely mesmerized by this whole thing I think, and it's giving it a thumbs up step. Watched it and steamy. You're right, Dean. Yeah, I didn't know of esteem. Oh, yeah. Okay, I'll watch it. You know, I never be smooth Larry it trying to feed some Limburger cheese too Curly, if it can meet that intellectual level, But I never get in the game of Thrones because everybody was talking to me about how everybody is naked. And by the time I started watching it, I don't know what season it was Everybody had clothes on. So whatever, anyway, you know what I forgot. Tioga bring up yesterday we were talking about Larry King is Jim Bohannon, who replaced Larry on the radio overnight, is now heard all night on this radio state, and he does a great job too. He's a good guy, You know, I thought of yesterday. Remember Dave Letterman used to call Larry's radio show and disguise his voice. And he'd be like, Yeah, this is Jim from Pasadena. And I don't know if Larry ever figured out that it was Letterman. But he used to do that all the time. And apparently, Albert Brooks used to do it, too. That's hilarious. And that's surprising Conan O'Brien last night. Head Larry on his show on a pretty regular basis, and he you know, did a montage of some of Larry's visits. And you know they were talking about how amazing it was that whatever they asked Larry to do, he would do no matter what crazy thing it was. There was one scene word Conan introduces Larry King. And he's up in the rafters up or the lights are. He's just sitting up there and he's got his little It looks like a little CNN set set up with the table in the background, but it's it's 50 ft. Up in the air and You know, just doing crazy things in bed with Andy Richter and Conan. He just loved being on. He loved being on. He loved me. He loved. I think he loved being you know, funny. Guess I'm his own show. He had to be serious all the time. He said. Hey, his fantasy was to be a stand up comic. I'm gonna have to Google that I could probably find that everyone watching Conan. They put their material up on their website pretty fast, So I bet it's up there right now. I got my day plan. Thanks, Dean. Talk to you. Tomorrow is W g. N Chicago. Yeah..

Kirk Douglas, Towering Icon of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Dies at 103

"So that's from the nineteen sixty film Spartacus it's Kirk Douglas in one of the best known scenes of his long Hollywood career Kirk Douglas died yesterday at the remarkable age of a hundred and three throughout the fifties and sixties he embodied a certain romantic idea of Old World masculinity in his films he often made movies about cowboys and soldiers prize fighters and rebels his most famous movie was Spartacus but the movie that made him a Hollywood star with the nineteen forty nine boxing movie champion the person he was in real life often mirrored the tough man that he portrayed on screen Kirk Douglas had a difficult childhood he grew up in New York in extreme poverty he actually was a wrestler and spent time in the navy before his success on Broadway he later went on to make movies that now define the era of Hollywood classics in nineteen eighty one Kirk Douglas received the presidential medal of freedom and fifteen years later he earned an honorary Oscar for lifetime achievement Jason Gorder he's a movie critic and a big fan of Kirk Douglas is work and he's here to reflect on the actors impact on the film world to chase and thanks for being here my pleasure and honor to speak about this giant of talent what do you think when you think Kirk Douglas I think somebody that helped change what we think of of modern cinema frankly he's he bridge is very much the gap between sort of the traditional Hollywood leading man that's sort of you know the beautiful dimple in the middle of his chin the incredible physique a sort of sense that we had of the strong man the strong big actor but is also somebody that brought a great deal sensitivity to his character system the steps two wasn't simply a matinee idol who somebody that sort of brought through his performance a dramatic richness that would we'd be exhibited in many of his contemporaries people like Burt Lancaster but also into people like Marlon Brando who get celebrations and more but he also brought a very political a sophisticated political angle to his films he somebody that absolutely shifted the conversation but what it was like to be a performer not simply studio tool but somebody that could take charge of his own career and shift at and that's when the look of the great things that he did everything that we saw after the fact of of these performers that are able to shape their careers much more explicit way he was a pioneer on that front would you consider that is greatest contribution or what for you just it gleams above all the rest I mean for me my personal connection or to serve master pieces which are the films that he did with Kubrick puzzle glory was a film that nobody wanted to make nobody wanted to make this sort of anti war sophisticated look at World War one it was sort of it was a war that nobody was particularly interested in such a grisly film that about moral ambivalence that wasn't really to be taken up and he and his production company Brina named after his mother foster got the money together now a great deal the budget went towards him but nonetheless he gave a shot to this this quirky New York filmmaker called Stanley Kubrick an fifty seven nineteen sixty while he was doing Spartacus the other our grand collaboration there's another director and after a week Douglas realize this is not going to work and he brought in correct now that the dynamic between the two of them was a little tenuous but none the less he brought this to start the superstar director to one of the sort of last big epic Hollywood cast of thousands films and still injected with the with this real subtlety and real intelligence of performance and finally with Spartacus again the connection Douglas Trumbull is it was Kirk Douglas who unapologetically said this blacklisted armed writer is going to get credit actually John F. Kennedy cross the picket line in order to see Spartacus this is what broke the blacklist the famous arms those that were accused of being communists so in so many ways I Kirk Douglas of star power was used for good he was used to bring stories to screen that would have been brought otherwise he brought directors that otherwise Hollywood didn't think that were I'm sufficiently commercial and you brought to light the hypocrisy of actually bring these writers to to dream if for the if you only watch two forms of Kirk Douglas these are ones actually fully sober in you know a lot of people will be doing that tonight I want to play you a clip from almost thirty years ago no looking back I realize I was much more successful when I forgot about being a hit for years I proclaim loudly that a movie must be good entertainment no messages for me but I've changed it must in some small way touch improve humanity that was Kirk Douglas accepting a lifetime achievement award from the American film institute and you can hear that Douglas was ingesting this chiseled jaw line or a typical Hollywood celebrity of the era is like you say he was a man of principle and you're quite cranky I hear that a lot of people didn't get along with him but is that how he will be remembered do you think is a man of principle was incredibly philanthropic and and again his story is fascinating he has for his father was a smart the dealer a rag command in upstate New York came from nothing I'm dealt with severe anti semitism the sun changes name sort of inculcates himself into Hollywood as a sort of brash fully American leading man from that he saw the the division between high and low and he really took that film trophic spirit that's that moral spirit the moral conviction through his career what a hundred three is a long time to live but he lived a very very full life and I believe when he was getting at AFI award he had just been in a tragic helicopter accident then here he is again I'm coming to the fore because he was called his performance he was there to actually have the signs that he also had a stroke he's kind of had nine lives and his son Michael Douglas was watching all of this and he's an acting icon in his own right do you think that that what is it from Kirk Douglas that you see that Michael Douglas has it has in him I mean I've said the drive the conviction but of the the big deal is that once a problem OR one flew over the cuckoo's nest was a Kirk Douglas production he actually did the stage production he got the rights again he saw this very quirky very politically charged project his son would eventually produce the film in the Afghan Oscar glory because of that so so the the tradition certainly carries along with Michael Douglas but the I mean it's it's for for viewers who are not familiar with this film we just don't really have a Kirk Douglas anymore the system doesn't really work with that but we have certain people the Brad Pitt's of this world who are stars but also bringing in these films after their production so it's quite remarkable thank you so much Jason Jason is a film critic he joins us live in the studio to talk about the death of Hollywood actor Kirk Douglas who died yesterday at the age of a hundred
