They laughed at the girl and started to lecture her about wasting their time believing her to be either mentally ill. The victim of a realistic nightmares were ultimately on drugs. All thong was already known to the police. Now this is actually not her real name. This is the name later assigned to her. So this is an alias. Even at thirteen years old she already had a record having run away from home and then publicly living with known gang members and drug dealers so she was not in a good spot already at thirteen. The girl then began to describe in vivid detail. How she her boyfriend and two other men mercilessly tortured a woman to death and the police still didn't believe it and that's possibly because nine thousand nine hundred nine hong kong's homicide rate was just one point two three per one hundred thousand people.

"Pandemic" Pet Adoption - Always Great No Matter When It Happens
"I was in a new apartment in a new city after just having broken up with a partner of ten years. I didn't leave my home. I had very little outside contact with anybody. Virtual or otherwise. I was all alone for the first time a very long time. I became even more introvert than i'd ever been before. Feeling sadness sorrow and kind of use on a daily basis. Let me just say that. I am inherently a cat person. But i was compelled to do everything the opposite way of. How about my life up until that point. The all quote. Nothing is working this way. So i'll do it the opposite and see what happens. It can't get much worse in quote. That was my line and my way of thinking at that time. We'll in october of two thousand eighteen. My precious cat when he had just passed away. It was very sad. And so i thought briefly about waiting on getting another pet altogether. Maybe i'll just wait. It was just so painful to imagine going through the worry and commitment. And plus i had just start to travel a little bit more but somehow i didn't dismiss it as the weeks went by. I saw an ad on pet finder dot com for a dog named frank and the ad it stayed that frank was quote body sensitive in quote in other words he was a biter. But guess what that did not deter me. As i read the ad i learnt that he had been in a few bad homes been rejected and returned to the shelter. But the ad also said that wants the bonding phase was established. He'd be a companion for life. I was intrigued as ended up. I wouldn't be all alone for the rest of my life. Like i thought i would. Happy ending for franken me for sure. But here's another pet story. That's just as cool on. Us news and world report. I found this doctor. Liz dare a family medicine. Physician in western massachusetts had wanted to adopt a dog but she hadn't quite found the right time to do it with work travel and other commitments. They're just never seemed to be a great time to adopt a pet and her two cats kept her company. Well enough with fewer knees dog. And isn't that the truth. But in mid-march the world changed when the coronavirus pandemic was declared overnight workplaces closed and like many other people. Liz began working from home. A lot offering visits with patients. Virtually from their homes. Having a dog would help stave off some of the isolation that accompanied the radical change and it is radical in lifestyle so many of us have had to cope with since the coronavirus pandemic began. She says i'm single. And i live by myself so it felt like a really right time for me. Well according to its july seventeenth twenty twenty covid nineteen impact report. The number of dogs and cat adoptions. Were actually down. Twenty seven percent when compared to the same time period a year ago. but foster's were up nine percent. Many states have seen a significant decline in the number of animals. Entering the shelters as volunteers observed stay at home orders but the increase and fosters suggests that more people are willing to take on sick or older pets that might otherwise not have found a safe home to call their own for any period of time because this is an ever changing situation and each shelter faces unique challenges adoption and fostering statistics will vary at any given time. It's so obvious. But there's no doubt that the response from community residents across the nation to support their local shelters by fostering vulnerable animals has been enormous and unprecedented. And isn't that the coolest thing well for liz. The rush to adopt meant. She had to be patient to find her pandemic pet orla name eventually. She connected with a shelter and connecticut right here where i am that brings dogs up from the southern united states. So that's how. She found sophie a two year. Old thirty pound terrier boxer mix. She's chestnut brown with white around her face and white paws and she's got spots running down her chest. She sounds adorable and she is and sweet and she's a very low key dog. I needed to find a dog. She says that was going to get along well with my two cats and as it turns out. Sophia's very good around the cats. Who are still a little freaked out by her. Well let me just tell. This story has a great ending to. She brought sophie home of month ago. They're still adjusting to the new routine. She's totally fallen in love with this dog. So after those two stories. My story about frank and liz's story about sophie. Do you even need to hear the bullet point benefits for adopting a pet. No well here. They are anyway well. They offer companionship. We know that this is important. If like myself you live alone before. I adopted frank who is a dachshund maltese mixed breed. I had no one to look forward to seeing no one to share my love with and no one that needed me and there is something to be said about the human to dog touch. That feels so good. Well provides a purpose to the sense of purpose. Everybody needs pet. Ownership is an important responsibility and one that can be a powerful antidote to depression and anxiety. There are more opportunities for exercise to well this time to walk. Frank during the lockdown played an important role in my wellbeing and his two dogs need to be walked and katz needs to be played with and there is no doubt that these activities with your pet is crucial to your physical wellbeing. as well. as there's getting dose of fresh air is important for both of you. Also it provides a reason to go outside smelled air and be alone with your thoughts. That's right. I said alone because when you're outside there's so much to see and you're using all your senses of very good thing and there's good medical news two that's right. Having a pet can reduce blood pressure the center for disease control and prevention the cdc reports that pet ownership can be a key to reducing stress cholesterol and triglycerides levels. All things that we need to do to be healthy and you know what there doesn't even have to be at pandemic for you to adopt a pet but you can't anyway. It's a good excuse if you need one. If you need a laugh live alone. Want to potentially meet other like-minded pet owners be more peaceful and happier and calmer. This is something to really consider. I know you know this. It's not only you but that furry pet that just may need you as much as you need them. Still a cat person. But i adore my frankie.

Baby like throwing away photos are putting things under the bed but i guess when you have a life size cut out in a closet you can fold it up. You can fold it up and i go on. That many dog walks. If we're going to have to watch you to be that obsessed with each other for that much time you can be a little classier about this. That's the lately disrespectful. What a classy way to throw out of cardboard you know i could have folded it. He could take it up. You could have ripped it up. He has twelve people working for him. That really i have to say. Knock on ben for me. Totally funny i. It's so funny. Because he talks about this interviews all the time where you loved to be photographed. And he's like no. I go and take out the trash. And they're just sitting there so i mean part of me is like he'd probably get told his housekeeper. Whatever like hey this for me and then it was just they'd pitched it and now it's been terrible.

The New York Actors Experience With Caitlyn Piccirillo
"Is there much. Are the theaters. Closed down there as well. Oh yeah they've been They shut down broadway on march thirteenth. I believe End there hasn't been any live theater in new york city as far as i know There's been some like socially distanced park performances What small theatre companies. Just trying to keep busy but for the most part Most of the theater being done in in new york city right now seems to be a via zoom or now that filming is happening against tv productions coming back the show that i'm we just started rehearsing for the dining room where rehearsing over zoom and then we'll be Recording it over like the course of three days and someone's apartment interesting help. How do you find that then. Immigrants regards to rehearsing over zoom versus in person. Because you're not getting as much instant feedback in that experience. Just being right next to the person. Yeah it's a little weird just because Everyone has technical issues. might internet sometimes is a bit a sporadic and this production My friends directing it but he casts instead of doing the way traditionally would do the dining room which was six people. every character is played by different persons. Losing fifty something people in this cast. So it's really hard to just have that one on one moment with with your scene partner but when i've done zoom Readings and stuff. It's not that bad. A as long as people are really trying to stay in the moment and kind of committing to what they're doing. There's been some beautiful theater being done over zoom Yeah i know a lot. Some as being in it's same here. Some theaters are broadcasting over zoom. I haven't really watched anything. Maybe i should give it a try though because people that are doing it and in theaters need to stay. Afloat is the thing like our they. I mean they're not earning any money right now and so you know. What else are they supposed to do. They had a a scheme here. That's i don't remember. One of the politicians proposed was basically just like a well. You know if all the actors and stuff are complaining about not having work right now they should just go back and retrain and do something else was. I saw that Jesus seriously how much. Money is generated for the city of london from the theaters on first of all and then like just ridiculous thing to say exactly so much and i don't. that's something i've found even talking within Like with my family who who are not art people their science people and they really don't get it they really do think that Performing as like a glorified hobby rather than something that you really work in train for. However many years you know. I not only have like my bachelor's in acting but i also have my masters in theatre i've spent. I couldn't even tell you how much time and money on a acting classes voice lessons. Dance lessons and To to Like out of nowhere. Have your entire industry disappear. It would be like out of nowhere having the entire publishing industry disappear like sure. Books are like a commercial item. But you would very much notice if out of nowhere known was writing publishing reading books anymore. That's good point. It's i wanted to ask you about that too because you have a ton of training which is amazing. So what is kinda value. Get out of doing so much training. Because i know a lot of hollywood actors. You could look into it in say well. They didn't have any actual acting training them. But i think there's a value in love to hear kind of your take on it because like you said you got your bachelor's you got a master's in theater will. My masters was primarily in theatre history. Because i have a real interested in drama turkey and in london they actually really have an appreciation for drama turci which i approach which i love but in the us it's not it's kind of a dying art. But i think it's super important for performers to have at least some idea of of that of doing that kind of research. Because i find that i can always tell a performer has done their homework in. That's homework on the character homework on character. But it's not just like what are my motivations. Who am i talking to. What is background. But it's the show of it things like okay well. What is my socioeconomic background What does that mean for. How i was raised end Because someone who was raised in like a upper middle class lifestyle versus someone who is poverty stricken as a child is going to have different reactions to different Situations in a show or talking. About what what era was it and what was going on in that timeframe you know A story about you know a two women in love is totally going to have a different feeling context. If the story set in the nineteen sixties the eighteen sixties

You fans of bowed many many times and so i want to dive deep. Is that all right man. Please statement somewhere new love good so the first thing i wanna do is a kind of style from the obvious and then go a little bit more so we talked about the question nutrition. It was his unit. Con- up blah blah blah. It's the stuff. That leonard on the tony robbins podcast But you didn't start out being a business builder and entrepreneur. You start out with something that might in fact seemed like the polar opposite of the pat success. Which was your lover. Phil and you went to film school. How did your family feel about you tripping the light brand tacit rather get yourself a good steady job I think that you know my mom lived in constant and still does quite. Frankly live in a constant state of panic that i was going to do nothing with my life that i would Be unhappy in some way and so she worried but very quietly so when i was a kid she was very encouraging. Wanted me to go chase my dreams and so i didn't grow up with that like pressure from my parents or anything. They wanted to see me happy. I was very passionate about film making. They could see my excitement. They wanted to see me. Pursue it So they were very encouraging about that. My dad is. I got towards graduation. Film school he sent me starting at month. Six or five hundred member exactly my senior year. It was five more months four months three more months one month at two when he was not going to be helping me financial anymore so literally the day. I graduated I had no more assistance from my family so that was actually great so from that perspective. He didn't have too many concerns Because he just believed. I would somehow figure it out. So that long story but took me through my remedial jobs phase where you know barely making ends meet but i made some I made some what ended up being quite smart decisions around managed apartment complexes and things like that really cheap rent as why was while you were in films who know right after i graduated. Put again as about weirdness right like all you went to film school you went to film school. I assuming you want to make films and managing apartments. It's a weird mix. I mean we know people go into the arts often wait tables. You managed apartments. That must've been that entrepreneurial spirit in you as well even doing that film time. it's interesting. there really wasn't and i. I am by nature. I am the world's worst entrepreneur. I don't have any real entrepreneurial Instincts in me so even the apartment managing thing was was totally an accident. It was me capitalizing. An opportunity that presented itself and that i will say i've been good in my life about winning opportunity presents itself. I take that opportunity But if that one hadn't fallen in my lap than that it's terrifying to think what the outcome would have been. So when i went to film school i thought that i would. I was showing real promise zone school. And i thought that i had natural talent for it and that shows you my mindset. I was very focused on what what comes naturally to me and so i thought it maitlis gifted filmmaker and so the first half of them school. I did very very well. And then i got selected as one of the four people to direct senior thesis film. Which is a big deal and so when it happened was like oh my god. I'm like bud shows. I'm literally one of four people chosen to direct this film. And i'm gonna make this. It's going to be amazing. i'm gonna go out. I'm gonna get a three picture. Deal from hollywood off the back of how good this film is going to be. And and my life will be. That's literally what i was thinking. And i showed up on the first day of domain with virtually no preparation and to give i wrote the script like to the minute that it was due so a couple of hours before. I jot something down which only feeds ending it gets elected which only feeds into. I'm just naturally good at this. So i roll up onset completely unprepared and i fail miserably very publicly incredibly embarrassingly and then that shakes my whole world and makes me realized that i am. I am not a talented filmmaker like that was the hard realization that i had phase at that moment.

"First a word from our alternate that sponsor the commentary on just like how. TV is just all cowboys violence cowboys and violence. Everything is Rick Dalton type of TV. Show this time to suffer on would have been making right around this time. Of course Hollywood. Well it's also interesting that this is the first best picture Oscar winner to refer for tweet previous winner which is which one thousand nine hundred eighty two. I just love that. He does do these little comments. He's a cheeky comments about you know even his own work. I mean you know. Buds boss at one point refers to having a lost weekend in Bud's apartment which was a billy wilder movie like I feel like we don't see all the references because the references are no longer They're no longer relevant. You know the you can get it but it it. It would hit much harder in nineteen sixty. Then it's GonNa hit twenty twenty right but now like if he came home. You know the guy flipping through channels. It would just be like one clip of ironman being like the world's GonNa die. Let's do this changing again. Black Fair they're being like the world's GonNa died this we do this. I mean it's the same repetitive joke. And it feels so fresh when he does it I mean I would also say that the could make a joke that like he turns on literally can't to find anything because he's a wash in so many choices. Like it would be like Greta Garbo in the Grand Hotel. And then you have Greta Garbo in tonight in the Sahara and Greta Garbo in. Someone's like you would almost had like ten tonight Saharan. Yeah that's very good. Thank you should make it but I appreciate that. Louder is using his time in in this film to try to make his comment on everything. You've if there is one thing that I think really pops about him that he's a guy who has a ton of opinions and he wants to get them out there. Apparently they took this film. They took the the apartment to east. Berlin it East Berlin. They were hailing this bill. And they're like this is great. We love that. You've made this indictment of capitalism because they're all communist of course they're like thank you you so much for making a film that really allied aligns with our politics says that you know. The western south capitalism is killing all humanity destroy any sort of interpersonal relationships between people bull and then billy is like this movie could happen anywhere. This movie could happen in Hong Kong and Roman prayers and in London. But the place it couldn't happen is Moscow and people start going nuts throws and they start cheering like ooh. Yeah Yeah Yeah anyways. Until they're done he says yeah because Moscow. Nobody owns their own apartment and just crickets ricketts right. And then he closed his speech by saying East. Berlin it's great. You love this film. He will give you the rights of this film. If you guys make a documentary Henry about the Stalin Hitler nonaggression pact. That started World War Two. Wow you know it's interesting too. Because Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev was in us to address the UN and interpreter ran into Shirley maclaine. And they said Oh the you know the the premier senses regards. He just saw your new picture picture of the apartment and you have improved. Because I guess he'd only seen her other movie from nineteen sixty the Cancan which he hated so so who knew Nikita Khrushchev. Had some solid movie critiques over. There do you think. He applauded by banging his shoe on the movie theater. Ah But like can I talk about like One thing about this film that it They really stuck out to me. was like what you said there. The rights to the film. I'll give you the rights if you. I'm blown away that no one has remade this film and I was looking like. Oh well you know nine sixty eight. Neil Simon adapted the screenplay is a book for his Broadway musical musical promises promises. But it's interesting that no one's remade this. I actually like literally today why I want to get to the bottom of it. And and some of these billy wilder films that are so classic are really ripe for for the remaking talking about double indemnity. We talk about since boulevard. I wonder if people feel so intimidated. Committed to get over or or feels like we couldn't make this movie. I think he could make this movie today. I wonder if part of the problem is. It's hard to understand the setup because I I think the first time I watched this movie I was like. Why don't these people get a hotel room? You're you're rich go-getter the problem and I looked into that because I could not understand why this apartment was so special in New York which is a city of hotel room and apparently in nineteen sixty. The vice squad still had really strict control over the hotels and they you were trying to make sure that hotels didn't encourage prostitution hotels. Were not allowed to have guessed. That weren't staying the night and they would have officers undercover people. Patrolling hotels also making sure that nobody checked in for an hour interesting. I mean does the four seasons care if you check in for an hour no get your money. They don't know when you leave exactly so you don't check out anymore. It's not like a a big deal. You know exactly but I guess back then. That's why these guys are in such fear so I don't know how other I wonder there's elephant here. They're reminded me so much of the AIRBNB tiptoeing around you running the scam out of your apartment but the links that Jack Lemmon goes to to never tell his neighbors what's happening. I love that think that he's horrible. Horrible I mean cruella thorough. Who Care about women because I can only associate with AIRBNB are? They worried that they will kick him out if they know he's running this ring. Well I think I think just simply as a neighbor I this is something you want your. I'm using my my apartment is like a fuck pad I mean and not even my look like how would they even come up in casual conversation. Oh by the way she do hear a lot of sex. It's not me. It's I'm giving my key to other people as somebody deal another thing to talk about with. Billy wilder is the way that he shoots these movies. They seem just to be really effortlessly. Done they don't seem to have much fat on them at all and I was telling doesn't like t's close ups he just yeah knowing and I think that is good for comedy comedy plays better and and you know in these one shots shots and and you know in these. Just you've seen these characters and track. And it was because he kept his editor onset with them at all times he Don't Harrison Johnnie made him a producer and he only shot what he discussed with donuts they would go in and they would say okay. Let's look at this and this is going into something that what I've been reading about more often than not I think it was. I think it might have been Linda Ramsey which she was talking on the DJ podcast about how she goes through the script with her editor during the scripting phase. Because she knows that she's going to get into the edit room anyway. Let's start to make the cuts before you even even start to shoot it. And I love that idea of the editor being a very big part in it. We talked about this in wild bunch. You know the editor has different. I for things and can read a script differently then then a filmmaker and I love the fact that you know for somebody who is very hands on. Don't change my diet like don't change this. Don't do that that. He had his editor there to make sure that okay. We we shot everything sparingly. We didn't overshoot you know we cut the film in camera. They eliminated Kasey setups. But I thought that was really interesting to well. Also I think works really well with with the idea of wilder the control freak. Don't give the studio other options. They can't go with you. I mean did a movie one time like that. No it did not work out. Well really the the studios was furious because we didn't have any other options besides what we shot and And that was it. Yeah it was Came out okay. I'm just going to describing of a very awkward smiles and though I know given movies called Army of one it's a Nicholas Cage Myself Russell brand and And it is it is very much The movie that the director Larry Charles wanted to be shot no extra footage and was actually actually on days cutting scenes before even shooting them so people were there and he's like I'm cutting that scene. I'M NOT GONNA use it and I think it was actually really smart way to control troll the film that he wanted to make because I think a lot of directors know that if you give everything to studio they'll just take the movie away from you and they'll re cut it and that was a movie that at that time and was done with the Weinstein's so that was kind of notorious for taking cuts away from director so you know it's a it's It's you know for better for worse and if you're going to screw over Weinstein I'm going to be on your side New England. This movie comes out obviously. Billy wilder is is a sensation. You know when he's playing on things I talked about earlier. They do that you know. He's referencing things in culture and There was a movie that came out called suddenly last summer in Nineteen fifty-nine the tagline was. She knew she was being used for something. Evil and the apartment used a tagline. I think billy wilder was like Oh you know having fun with that and it was the apartment. Suddenly last winter he knew his apartment was being used for something. Evil was he just scurrying during with. I think he was having fun with that idea but houses movie received when it came out you know. Honestly it was polarizing really yeah there was a lot of moralistic Henry about this topic about adultery and people having premarital sex and he was really upset by it because he thought all of these critics who we we really respect to people like Andrew Sarah's they were rejecting his movie based on moralistic grounds while embracing it when it happens. He said in like jury foreign films. The jury foreign foreign films are always making movies about affairs and they're always talking about the corruption of the human saw and that all these critics love it when it's subtitled in French. But that when it's an American movie maybe with a little bit of humor. They're suddenly up in arms absolutely upset by in offended so the reviews were mixed they were not as uniformly positive as you might guess. Here's a couple of quotes. Like Hollis Alpert of the review called it quote a dirty fairytale with a schmuck for a hero and a sad little elevator operator for a fairy princess. Another critic said that AOL diamond has screeners should change his name to Zircon. And then the one that I pulled. Because I just find it notable all the way around was very very terse review from the New Yorker here the critic is John McCartan here viewed four films in one week at the New Yorker because he dismissed all of them as quote not very stimulating. One of them. You only gives us sentenced to. He does not even care. Another one is a Peter Sellers. Comedy like whatever another one. He dismisses not very stimulating is psycho which she calls and uncertain heavy-handed. Wow and then. Finally he gets the apartment in his sum. Total of what he says about department is quote. The hero of the thing is a youthful organization nation man and a difficult one to sympathize with as he goes about turning his home into a kind of brothel for his bosses. Mr Walter and Mr Diamond in putting together. This script never seemed to have decided whether his conduct conduct is frankish or deplorable misplayed. and Mr mcmurray used Mr. Lemons is past places pad until the hero decides. He's in love with Miss Maclean. These either gray flannel beat Knicks. All right if.

"Three's The Sun starring Fred macmurray. I mean I love. I don't know what it was but he grew up with an. I may have talked about this the foreign deadline deputy but I grew up with shaggy. Da and the Fred macmurray Disney movies is one of the things I remember and then when I was accused on TV. Show too. You know. And I was like I am whatever it was. I Guess Nick Knight or Nick at Nite Nick. During the blade afternoon I was watching my three sons. I loved it I just I I love for mcmurray from that so this whole other side of him is a real revelation to me like. I've gone backwards on him. Same Way with Sean Connery. Gina's Bond Bonner wait. There was another Jesus Bomba size. Roger Moore well better. After the apartment came out Fred. macmurray went to Disneyland probably as part of his Disney life and a woman have been hit him on the head of the pocket book. I said how could you how other people on that say that he was kind of an asshole. It the whole thing was that like we could talk about this better than I can like how actors do like. Here's your footage. Here's my footage when we're doing a two person kind of do that when he wasn't on Camera Hewitt either just be there. He would subtly sabotaged or cough when you did a really good. We heard about that on on on the waterfront with With Brando you know it's interesting. It's like in different actors. Prepare in different ways and I would always say it's like a a dickey thing but then experience where it's sort of like practice before the cameras on you like you're doing it in the wide and you're you know that that's going to be used for a couple of moments and then when it goes to you you know like okay pressures on this is my coverage is my close up have to nail it so you have to bring your game because that is going to be the you know the best but the other actor on the other side at that point if you haven't gone yet you're kind of like it's almost like a relay race you're just waiting to go and you're you're working it out. Maybe you're almost like easing as testing are. Because it's not on you yet so I think some people do it intentionally And some people. Don't they'll tell you one story that I love about off camera lines. There's an actor remains nameless doing a movie with Wolf Errol and Will Ferrell. How does olives off camera lens because we'll fairly is just the best in such a sweet nice good dude and when it came time for welfare all to get get you know to to camera to go on him? This guy wouldn't do the Lions Against Will Ferrell and they said to me go. Why did the lines because when you pay me as much money as we'll fail then I'll do the off camera lines and this is like a guy who is not incredibly famous? He's still around but it was like but there is this weird attitude depending on like. It's a weird thing like this who wants to do off camera lines like I'm not working now it's like and it's such a weird thing it's I don't think it you know. Some people bull are working out. Some people are Dick's about it but it's a funny thing of well not on camera. So why should I bother doing us. But it's interesting that that like he wasn't wanted to those there's lines or sabotage maybe. He was resentful that he wasn't billy wilder's first pick I know well yes I picked died right yes. I pick died two weeks before filming so billionaires it was like a call in a favor and then also because billy water likes to tailor stuff he had to rewrite all of their lines for sheldrakes and to make sure they fit got it it at least that'd be flattering. Thanks yeah I mean yeah sure I guess but to this point about TV. You know what I was really thinking about on this watch was how much wilder could've made the apartment as his criticism Susan who where he thought Hollywood was going. 'cause it's easy for us to sit back and be like the apartment. That's the golden era of Hollywood. Everything was great for wilder. He was like the golden era is dead you you know. I showed up just in time to witness a little bit of it in the nineteen thirties when I was just a writer and I didn't have that much power in this town and then from then on I've watched this whole industry become corporate is is D- I've watched the bankers takeover. I've watched the studio system which had its flaws start to become fractured. Now as a filmmaker. Half of what you do is you have to like get your own funding and be your own publicity and do everything yourself. It'd be this tireless worker. He's I've seen how everything is focused group to death in ways that are killing killing the creativity of this industry. And now I've seen how television is coming in and is competing with us and how it's ruining everything and so. I love that scene where you have Jack Lemmon at home watching ATV. Yes come into this whole thing the whole thing. Let's listen from the world brings US Library of film classics. We've proudly present Greta Garbo John. Barrymore Dome Robert Wallace Berry and Landau Barrymore and Grand Hotel but first a word from our sponsor if you smoke the modern way. Don't be fooled by phony. Filter.

"You know what I really love talking about bad advice. This movie I I just love the way in the world they put him in in this in the actual apartment building his next door. Neighbors are my favorite characters. Oh my God I love him so much I I was upset to hear. They are the are great but I was upset to hear like the doctor. Dreyfuss was the studio really wanted to Groucho Marx. MARQUESA play that role. And I would've liked that. I just see Groucho Marx. Not Doing Groucho but kind of that character is such a funny character because he's you like going to report it is it GonNa kick your ass like there's this and there's something fun about that character would have been fun to see so many memorable like that doing that. Although maybe it's better that it was was it was not memorable. It is kind of interesting to see that billy wilder populated his universe with people that you know he felt represented his own experience. It'll be like an immigrant. Who came to America as an adult that he let this film be full of? Not just the drive is not just a couple next door. But that the people's last names here it's not like a movie of Generic Wa. He locates everybody really specifically you. That fans last name is Kulik in. That brother is named Matsushita you. It is a universe of Americans and not just like quote unquote standing there. I mean by the way I will say. Though he has used the character name Shell Drake in in the apartment sunset. Boulevard ankus stupid. That was one name. He came back to a lot and I wonder why. I think it's a fine name. A good name sheldrakes. Yeah I've even sheldrick known. No never either they should be among people name. Your kids sheldrick the first name. Not The last Yeah and yet. Because has wilders career stretches so much time in stretches so many designers we get to look and see how the actors that he loved to work with changed underneath his feet. You Know Fred macmurray from double indemnity identity to the time of the apartment is radically different person in the public eye because what are the big differences between Dublin and the apartment is the advent of TV. And and Fred macmurray starring in a show like this favourite show..

"Mm-hmm. The Mirror is broken. I like it makes me look the way I feel. I mean that line makes me look the way if I is telling the world had said everybody drops that idea. They don't hear her but no I disagree with you. 'cause I feel like the way when she says that it hits him and you see his face and he you exists with him for a few more moments as he kind of Oh like she wakes him up out of that trance. He's processing the hat pain to him I think he's like oh she's taken. I don't think he's hearing she's sad yet. I don't think I think he is listening to her emotions. He's still he's saying oh she's the girl like he's he's just looking at it going. Oh my God She's the girl that's been in my house. I have no chance of very thought I did. He's such a high. You know if this Christmas party which by the way you know. They shot that Christmas party scene. One take it was a and it was shot like two days before Christmas which is even a office that debaucherous I know. Yeah I mean it really reminded me of Scrooge there's was a great Christmas party scene is but it's just processing how affects him and not listening to her because when he shows up at his apartment after he gets drunk. Any Caesar Caesar at at on the bed passed out. I mean what I find so brilliant about. This script is that this is a character as opposed to love. We know what has happened her. We know he doesn't know that she's out on pills. And Billy Wilder makes us watch him yell at her because he doesn't he hasn't realized what's happening and that's like I think when the lowest things his character character does even if it is elements understanding but from the way he yells at her. He's mad he's not. He doesn't care that she is upset. He is mad at her for hurting his feelings. Skewed we'll get up on his past checking time. The management would appreciate it if you get the hell out of here. You're used you. It's all over between us so beat it out Waco and then he sees the pills and then here's I don't think that I think why bad because he's really just thinking about himself he's still not a thousand percent. Norman is having sex in his bed. He comes Oh God damn it like. She's on his mind. She's asleep in his bed after she just had sex with Shell Drake and he's like you know what now it's one thing for her to like to like for me not to be a part of the picture anymore but now like she won't even get on my bed like he says. I used to. Who like you pass before even got into that room and the only thing that has changed as he found out she's in love with somebody else that's when he stopped liking like okay? That's off the table. Able to all he cares about is himself and whether she likes him because even after the straighten this up a little bit he goes back to act like one of the big bossy men at at at the building living. He's like Oh you know I take a girl out have a couple of laughs. And he's like well. I'm going on other dates. Eighty he's still imitating the bad behavior right but I guess you never use it then. That's better than the other guys. But I guess what I'm saying is I. I can see your point that he hasn't really taken that she sad but I think there's an another element of it. Where but that doesn't show him as being a bad like that? Just shows ms frustrated like he is thinking that he has a relationship there that and I do think that there's an element where she is leading because she she is. She doesn't know exactly what she wants from that relationship I think she's kind of thinks she wants very much I think she doesn't. She's willing to go to the theater with right. He's not trading like a human being yet. Why should she has no reason to place him above the other men in the office because he's still just like hey bill? Gets you a promotion. Like we see but she does say that. She's he's never boyfriend like that. It's going like there's A. There's a moment of slight agreement that Oh this is a date. It's not like you you know it's not like he's I mean I think there's a there's a little I understand why this character is frustrated. She stands up she I she tells them yeah. I would like to do that with you. And I'm not really seeing anybody then. She stands him up then they kinda connect again and he's like. Oh this is kind of working. And then she's a then he realizes. Oh she's actually having sex with my boss. I'm an idiot. I'm fucking dummy like you know. I think we all can identify with those moments really thought I was reading. Okay I'm not reading that okay. And then you feel feel defensive on that moment and then he walks in and to add insult to injury she had sex in his girl that he likes his bed. And you know. She didn't but to his point of view. I think he's warranted. I don't think that he's woke. I don't think that he's really cares about her feelings. But I feel like he is warranted in the way that he'd be okay but I think I think we can agree on this from her perspective. He is no better than anybody else. No absolutely not. I don't think he is a classy guy on something easy. I don't think he's an upstanding guy. I think I think he is complicit in all this I think that that it's a little bit nebulous but at the end of the day he he learns to be a better person through taking care of her. It's again it's a little wonky ish because she's kind of in a misery situation he's like. Don't leave the apartment. So so there's there's also like he's kind of stalking her because he pulled her card and knew about what she had like. There's elements here that are not fully on the up and up. But I was I would never go on a date with him. Sure Guy Finds her own home address. No I know he knew it. And there are elements. That are talking about him. Yes but I do feel like he seemingly seemingly is when he has a day where there's a difference between Robert Deniro taxi driver. I WANNA have a date with civil shepherd because this are the place versus the way like he seems genuinely excited to go out with her. And we're I think the other men seem like all they wanna do is get laid. There is this is. This is a giant difference in this should be you the applauded but it seemed like he looked was looking forward to having a fun night where they're having a night on the town going to see a show and maybe that was all to the end game of getting to the bone owns them but I do believe that he was kind of like intern. Wanted to like you. Know is the tuned to give her more than just wanted to marry. He would be open to the idea of of marrying her. Yeah I I mean I do think though like also given the chance he would happily take the Fred macmurray path to life either thinks so yeah he gets the office. He's one of the guys he could marry her if things hadn't changed like if if this suicide attempt is she just been single single gone to thing then he married her. There's a world where ten years from now he's using one of his underlings apartments. I mean I don't read sexual from him at all like like I mean yes the corporate structure these in would you just be a self fulfilling prophecy. Yes or maybe whatever but there's something oddly on sexual about him where the other the men seem incredibly sexual so I can't say like it's on a Hayes code thing it's it's no. These men are is a has little Dick Energy little dinner you know but I mean I don't thinks he's like motivated by that I think he's like he's trying to get his head. I think in his mind or at least way identified with him like the he's making some compromises but he's trying to get ahead leading the whole idea to get ahead and so he could be live a happy life and be married and I think that was his goal. Is They have the American gang film hits the Loneliness Elena much harder than his harness. Yes absolutely you feel like he wants somebody and like in that moment with that other girl. Oh is he going to go home with her like he doesn't leave leading his his Dick. I guess basically traveling in the gold rush by the way this is what billy wilder called him on. Yeah did you know that like now. Oh Yeah He. He's compare Billy Wilder compared Jack Lemmon to chaplain. He's like he can do no wrong. He is my chaplain and that's why he really let had him kind of improvised. Go off script fine little fun things like you know the the Pasta tennis racket. which any gold rush to me? Yes acts like it's the most normal thing in the world to be serving Pasta with a tennis racket and he's so great in that team with the way he took the punch I think was also The kind of a mistake sake but Jack Lemmon really improviser think about physically and while there Britt defense. I think that's part of. I think that I think that Jack Lemmon totally different experience on wilder her film for two reasons maybe one he wrote the film specifically for him really loving him as an actor. Because this is my guy right. Yeah this is my chaplain to. He understood this character so it was like okay. I believe in. You really want you to get this right but three and I think that's what you're just touching on Jack. lemmon is a physical actor so the things that he tweaked aren't really the lines and it was just what he was doing. As he said the lines in that he was moving around and flailing and inventing little bits of physical comedy to with the dialogue believing the dialogue more or less alone alone so that he could adam his own self to it in a in a visible physical I would say the physicality of the character mix more likable. They because he seems a little bit more bumbling to a certain degree like you know the whole thing with the Col- The nays you know like the nasal spray and stuff like that. There's there's something about him that makes him feel a little safer innocuous and maybe that's the reason why we're not getting that little Dick Energy I think apparently like if you were moviegoer in the nineteen sixties sixties. You went to the movie theater. You didn't see anybody like Jack Lemmon Either you saw the handsome guys. You saw the tough guy is dangerous. Guys the Macho guys. Use a whole range Jack. Lemmon had the Jack Lemmon market to himself. Yeah and by way of thinking about the today is there a Jack Lemmon and I don't know if there is. There's not many films. Where are you see a Jack Lemmon? I think the closest you could maybe say that to somebody like Seth Rogan to a certain degree but even then it's it's not exactly the fully right. I mean I feel like there's a lot of movies being made with the essence of lemon. Which is I'm a nice guy? Yeah Oh God. I'm nice I'm charming irving. I'm funny. I'm a little floppy deserved to get the girl I do feel like. That's that typist on there. I wish Joseph Gordon Levitt could have continued to know because I think he has a real gift for comedy why he put it away right. I mean I feel like you could see a shared universe of the apartment and Judd appetite film being right I think there are elements of the forty year old virgin and this maybe there's like crow has hunger for companionship. Also stopping not being. I'm totally sure of finding like though one good woman a whole wall of women who are not GonNa work right that advice having bad role models. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Kings was up.

"Like this movie especially because Shirley mclane and other women who worked on it were really open about how difficult it was to work with. Wilder is almost a corrective to our episode on some like it hot because in that one everybody kind of ganged up on Maryland. She was one of the only real women in the in the movie stars in so the history of that movie. Is She fucked up. She was nervous she sucked she. Couldn't do it and here Ito Shirley maclaine has really taken on this kind of legacy of being like listen. Here's the deal of wilder. He grew up in Vienna after the war the first girl he was ever in love with turned out to be a prostitute prostitute. It broke him forever in Vienna prostitution illegal so it was more just like his dignity was broken. He was hurt by it is that we didn't criminalize right right. But he had a view of what women are visiting our. Yeah and she says McLean that she felt like it that I mean that is very experienced. Affected him so much that he stopped sleeping sleeping. He stopped eating. He quit college. And that's how we wound up becoming a writer in that toy around a getting to Hollywood in the first place. Was this one heartbreak. So she felt like onset. Yeah like he had no interest in the women except for them doing exactly what he said when he controlled. Show McLean here at least the same way that I feel like sheldrick controller. You know he only let her see forty pages of the script because he didn't want to know we wear character. Went you you know. And she thought. Oh it's because it's grip wasn't finished but no. He was manipulating her. He was from moment. One kind of setting the ground rules for how this works. And you know as we're hearing all these stories time and time again from many different directors that are doing this to the women in their film. They're working out some sort of aggression they're in a powerful position and it's easy. I don't WanNa like uses term lightly but it's it's a it's a form of emotional abuse the end and I think a lot of the Times the women that are the most abused in these situations are playing women who are at an emotional crossroads roads. And whether that's a chinatown or whether that's you know this film like you see it on their performance and I think it's smart. You could make an argument. Well that's what is the plan was created this but it also takes away the acting of it all because clearly Jack Lemmon is not this guy but yet you know you don't have to put him in that position either. Yeah it's always the distrust that gets to the directors don't trust their actresses to be able to do the performance without being legitimately terrorized. which should isn't quite say that? That's what happened but I'll at her and I also Russell Hope holiday talk about what it was like working on the set. Let's start with hope. who plays Miss Margie macdougall? She's the woman who's married to the jockey that For a minute it almost seems like Jack Lemmon might rendezvous with themselves. Billy wilder and Izzy diamond would never let anybody change a word of dialogue and their script and I had one line where I had to say. Poor Mickey he's kind of like the Little Chihuahua. The line was. He's like a little Chihuahua Woah so they said hope. He's like a little Chihuahua. He's not kind of like the Little Chihuahua. I said okay. Who a Mickey He? He's kind of like a little Chihuahua. Jarman jumped up over the side of the brand over the stairs. He jumped up over the side and he said. I like a little Chihuahua. Not Kinda I said okay. The five to ninety nine pounds billy was not exactly acquainted with feminist equality. Let's put it that way. And he could be very harsh with women. I think that's one of the things that that bothered Maryland. She was afraid of him associate. Associate would be late and stuff like that. We were shooting about what it's like to be in love with a married man and the script read you sit there and you make herself a cup of instant coffee while he rushes out to catch the train. I'm have Canadian. Have for Jinyan I say out so I said why you sit there and he rushes off to catch billy. Wouldn't he screamed and he sent the script girl in Nano and he's really was intimidating when you did not say say the right word I mean. I think that's really interesting. Her putting the emotional tenor of the set into context for Maryland as well right in Maryland. who was so paranoid about getting right? Who who had so many thoughts in their head about her anxiety about not being up to snuff for anybody and being you know just a beautiful fraud and nobody taking seriously I can I see now? Her point of view better because of surely sticking up. That's where like why me also truly is a much more together person especially later in life. I don't know what she was like at that point but you know I feel like she definitely is just a stronger stronger person who maybe has a different perspective on it now because she can you know. She's he's actually grown. Yeah but to kind of that whole point of how billy's casting of her almost is the character like he didn't she feels like he didn't director very much when she got right there. Yeah like everybody else. Looks like a blonde memo. And then you have Shirley maclaine short brown hair no makeup. He's contracting her to all the other girls in the picture there. There is a little bit of that like you're not basic like all these other girls. You're not like the right because you don't have you. Don't put hairspray in your hair. And by the way she really does stick out Amino Fred macmurray Kinda says the tour in the first like oh you cut your hair. You know. There's there is. She is positioned as someone who is making choices and she isn't just like all the other girls at sheldrick. She's trying to get away from US trying to make changes. She does want to go on a date with Jack Lemmon but she gets pulled back in. It's a very very interesting romantic love triangle because you see the push and pull of of both relationships and and where she she is actress. She's not ready for ready for a different really. You know. She's not ready to get out of it fully but she wants to you know but I also think Jack Lemmon isn't really capable of giving her for a better relationship at least not at the beginning because he's treating her in a lot of ways similar ish to the woman he is nice he wants to play but he never seems at the beginning to be that in tune with who she really is. You know I think there's really striking scene where he gets a promotion and he just wants to talk to her about her hat or his new any any. He's not paying any attention to the fact that she's miserable ignoring her in this league. Listen to listen to that. This is a bad day for Christmas. Family me all that back to my elevator. I'm going to be fine. You'd have to worry about that quite a bit of influence personnel you know Mr Chandra. Aw why I like that. So many Christmas execute picture. I thought maybe I put in a word for you. With Mr sheldrakes. A little promotion I would you like to be an elevator later starter. I'm afraid to many girls around here with seniority over me. No problem with this some time with the holidays call you and pick you up at the big big unveiling wear this we think so here. You don't think it's a little too much. I mean. Have to conservative firm. I won't be entertaining.

"It's interesting that you view shrimp and not you but like you know that we envisioned the person who is cheating with the married man is doing wrong right the it really is he is sheldrick is the one that is doing this when Fran Telstra Mcclain's character like no. He's done this a lot like as a matter of fact he's got so many different women. It's ridiculous it's he's really the the cat he's the bad guy in this movie but they come from this world of fast towels and vamps the woman who steals the man. She's and but she'd never acts like you know from the minute we meet her she you know when we see that first date with her an him or that kind of rendezvous at that Tiki bar which I so wanted to go to you and she's so sick of it and I'm like date fed if my Gosh I want to listen to a little bit of that date. She goes on them. Because what's really striking about. This scene is not that this is the sexy rendezvous is that she's really sad evening lady. Nice to see you again thank you. How long have you been six weeks? WHO's counting missed you all times? Same booth claim song sweet and sour standing next to you in that elevator dad today. Good morning skew. You Blake good night. Mr Sheltering are so crazy about you. Let's not start on that again please. I'm just beginning to get it over it. I don't believe you look Jeff. We had two wonderful months this summer. But that was it happens all the time wife and kids go away to the country in the boss has a fling with the secretary or the manicurist or the elevator girl. Come September picnics over by the kids. Go back to school. The boss goes back to the white and girl UH shrimp like they used to. I love even just the detail of sweet and sour because even the Magli Resonant Ito being with him Sweden. Yeah it's our and it's Kranj. It's everything all at once but Bowie. I did have one problem with that scene. I felt the music was in Congress to that bar like who wants to hear that music and a Tiki Bar WanNa hear live in more tropical. You know vibe. I don't WanNa you know I'm in a Chinese restaurant here. That kind of slow playing piano. I WANNA bring a little bit of a different influence into it. I mean I hear that but that is trying to layer in the apartment. The sure sure who is obsessed with and I had to kind of put in there by having it actually be part of the seat. Okay yes that Song Song in the background that becomes the the theme to the very melancholy. FEM- shock I mean no. Yeah I know it's a theory that billy wilder remember from a movie. He had seen way back in the day and he couldn't remember what it was called so he was driving everybody on the set bananas because he would walk up to them. He like Blah Blah Blah Blah. And he's tone deaf so he's like you know the song give me that Song Blah Blah. They couldn't figure it out they couldn't figure it out and finally there's a song called Jealous Lover from because the apart the romantic age but is down just called the theme of the apartment but he found it it. It's not an original composition. It's not original composition. But it became. I mean the romantic interest. Not The hugest hit so I think he's able to folded it into his own identity. And then have that player who we see from an album. That Shirley maclaine gives Fred McLean. His name is rickshaw. Boy He gets to make it the staple of the TIKI bar. Which I to your point though I mean what do you don't hear Deo the day? Oh we wouldn't wanNA hear like a more of a Caribbean Arabian. I'm talking to you of Asian like yourself to this day. Oh No I don't I mean I like it would be good like the need to go and she opened the Bilbao Day. All Day like company. Wait to cook and I WANNA go home dead. Yeah that's a kind of wall that being said. I love this scene. I love this kind of introduction to her because we see show McLean is is kind of Pepi up happy person and then you actually see how she really is feeling it kind of helps helps build into the second half of the movie which is a lot more emotional and and I love the general. Consider this film. which is it takes? We expect the FEM vitale. The the three's company premise and kind of turned on its ear and basis. It more in reality. What would really go on in a situation like this? And I think you get so much rich things from these characters and it's surprising that billy wilder was very strict especially with showing the clean about improvising. It was say the exact line Jacqueline could do no wrong. He gave Jack Lemmon a lot of leeway with probably talking about a little bit later. But show McLean notoriously. He rode her so hard. and I wonder if maybe writing her that hard and this is not something that we're unfamiliar with on the show. Directors writing actresses incredibly hard and giving them get great performances but writing her that hard it gave her this a little bit of a broken quality because they think they did that. Elevator scene like sixty times because you missed a word you know like he was was on her. Non Stop didn't like her ad libs didn't like anything about her and kind of character in this this box. Yeah I mean Shirley mclane seems to really love this movie but she does not seem to have loved wilder or she has really complicated feelings about it. Everything she's ever talked about about this at you know she. He said that while tended to hold women at arm's length with something. She said that on the set she felt like he was always giving all of his attention to Jack Lemmon and he was really focused on which she he called the indignities of the male characters that he understood Jack Lemmon so much. Thank you fred. And he wanted to make those characters alive but she said that she didn't feel like he understood women women at all themselves in that if you look at his movies what he tends to really right especially in the past leading upstairs. Nice housewives nagging housewives or prostitutes was how she characterized recognized. It and I think that this character feels so real is a lot of her just bringing bringing energy to that he wasn't handing her. I think that he tried to make that character. Here's my theory. I think he shaved her character mostly in the style and in the casting of her. Because when you look around the world of the apartment most of the women are big big bosomy hair joke about Marilyn Monroe like character is A. She's doing an Marilyn Monroe impression at scene. It's great it's actually a very good Marilyn Monroe. Yes yes they his Marilyn Monroe is amazing. It makes me wonder if he wished he had hired her. Because we talk so much about how much flooding lines in some like it hot. Listen Kid I can't pass asked this up. She looks like Maryland. I'm already in bed and I've taken a sleeping pill so on the answer is no look. Baxter we're making out the monthly efficiency rating and I'm putting you in the top ten now you don't WanNa Watch yourself up of course not but how can I be efficient at the office. If I don't get enough sleep at night it's only eleven and I just want the place for forty five minutes talking to anyway. That's sweet. That's real sweet thirty minutes or you say by the way she was. I think that same actresses meant to be wearing one of Marilyn Monroe's actual dresses but she thought it was too low cut so she wouldn't put it on just felt to naked. Well do you think this this is a dig at Marilyn Monroe. This comes out. Nineteen sixty this Some like it hot was fifty nine. He clearly had a big problem with her on that movie. Like it's not a dig but it's sort of like take it like the way that his character refers to her like thirty minutes set of forty five like she's too dumb. I could feel like he you know he paints her as exactly exactly what I think. Billy wilder experience was like she looks the part. But you don't want to spend any time with her. Well yeah I mean I feel.

"Love it and it is my favorite movie classic. Hollywood actresses gone to seed. You know and I think like when we have the Maltese Falcon again. I could live in a world where he doesn't. We don't have double indemnity but I also love both of those films. I loved them completely. But we have our new are covered of course in a way And you know that I I kind of grumbled about some like it hot just because I feel like it doesn't show off mind Maryland to the best of her ability. Why I love Gentlemen Prefer Blondes? Okay so I guess now here I am come and get a coal and slashing and burning but the apartment. I find it surprising that this film is only eighty one on the list. I would have guessed that of his of his body of work. This would be much smetana and that it wouldn't have even been a new addition to me. The apartment feels like his classic. I know I was Kinda shocked to this. Is The quintessential fun. Fun- comedy that has you know a kind of real pesos. To it and Jack Lemmon is superb in it. I think Jack Lemmon better in this and he is in some like I love I take Colibri. But he's a character here. This is the film that has a lot of depth that I don't always see in some like it hot and as the humor that you don't see in Sunset Boulevard and it it also has like the lethargic like sexual predatory nature that you have Frederick Murray delivery in double indemnity and getting chewed up in suckered in by but all my Barbara Stanwick my girl. Oh she's so good so good condenses everything he does so well I agree. And he's so economical in the way that he just accomplishes pushes everything that he wants to do. Right from the get-go voiceover narration. At the top of the movie Is that a lot of people will say like especially in writing. You shouldn't use voiceover use it sparingly and you know he really just pulls you into this world immediately. That opening shot of Jack Jack Lemmon in the office that visual of him lost in that Sea of desks which is actually a visual trick. I mean that was shot in Are Really Wide Lens and they in the front in the foreground their normal sized desks and go backwards. They're smaller desk with smaller people. And even children in the background just to give you the scope nope of this office of essentially worker bees right in the only way to distinguish yourself in this group of worker. Bees is to what kind of Curry favor with the people above you and I think that makes you automatically sympathetic to Jacqueline's character right like he's giving his key to these people and you. You understand right away that he has to do this. It doesn't make him a bad guy because it is a little bit of a premise at the root of this movie. It's like this guy gives keys. You know he's not been coerced into being bullied into it. Definitely being bullied into well once he starts doing it. They're like if you don't give me this key right but I'm saying the prequel film like I feel like he offered this up. No one came to him and said like Hey. Do you have an apartment that we can use. I feel like he kind of been my interpretation of this you know. He's a guy who may have overheard. I heard something tried to get him with his boss. Like you know. I do have an apartment on the upper west side. If you ever want to use it and it's explanation and the Phil what does these fills. It doesn't the film that very generously heard that somebody needed to change into a Tuxedo. After work he was like take my key chain into your Tuxedo. Not Realizing that change into Tuxedo might have meant something else to die and though once that guy spread the word about his Tuxedo change then they started to come to him and then he couldn't say no so to me. I think he's a really interesting character. Say Not so much in corruption but what happens in a in a sexual harassment of geared workplace where you are the man who also oh isn't a position of being unable to say no I guess what I what I see with him. Though is he is not just like a gullible guy. He is complicit in this he is ambitious he is definitely he has doing this to get ahead. Like yes. You're right it was as you know maybe a situation he got into unwittingly but something that he realized very quickly was something that he needed to continue to get to where he wanted to be. which is what he and he clearly continues to do it? Yes it gets more and more complicated more and more bosses come in and as he kind of wants to have his own life. which is hard to do when you don't have access to your actual apartment but like what you're saying? It's not that he has a moral problem with it. Right is a logistical problem. which is exactly what he wants to go to bed and he never thinks second really about the girlfriends themselves that are being taken there or the wives? He doesn't care about any of that. Oh He's not like sweetie clean here which I really appreciate Zhang no I mean really the character arc. Is this this man learning to have morals. And you don't even that are is a little nebulous because it's only because he's involved in the relationship that he's having morals it's not like hey I find this wrong. It's just like well now that it affects. Ex- me directly. I I do find this. I mean it already was affecting directly but you know he fell in love with one of the girls. It wasn't like he's making a giant stand but I think he does Open himself a little bit more it and it. Is this film that I think really put into focus for me. What has been billy wilder's interest in all of the movies that we have been talking about because there's a lot of touchdowns touchdowns in here that he's been repeating A setting in the insurance world for example. which is exactly what Fred macmurray was doing in double indemnity of the idea of people selling themselves is to make sure that they're financially okay? which was a huge element will get high? I do WanNa talk to you about this. This idea of like. Don't you think the idea of insurance feels so pedestrian. It's almost empty like his life. I mean in the opening monologue. We here he is busy looking at other people's lives lives. He's an actuary right. You know to a certain degree. There's an element of that. He knows all these facts about different. And I just feel like it's it is a generic stamp like what's the most generic job. You can do an excuse me to anybody who works in the insurance field. I'm just saying that I feel like it's it's a way to kind of office job. It is is quote Unquote Office job. I feel like there's something interesting about that because it makes the character very relatable like okay. I work in an office. It's just there's nothing he's a lawyer he's not a doctor. It's just a very much like an added desk and want to get to a bigger desk and then want to get to a desk. That has a door and I want to get to a desk. That has a window window and I want to get to a desk. That has two windows in the corner. I mean like you know his his You know it's a very simple idea kind of get into. I feel like it's almost like a placeholder thing thing that we do with a lot of comedic characters. They have their a worker bee. They're this. They're bland well. Yes but listening in show but what I think is important is is that what insurance does is it puts a value on human lives on November. First Nineteen fifty nine. The population of New York City was eight million. Forty two two thousand seven hundred and eighty three. If you laid all these people end to end figuring an average height of five feet six and a half inches they would reach from Times Square to the outskirts of Karachi she Pakistan. I know factually this because I worked for an insurance company consolidated life of New York. We're one of the top five Comey's country. A Home Office has thirty one. One thousand two hundred and fifty nine employees which is more than the entire population of NASHES MISSISSIPPI I work on the nineteenth floor ordinary policy department premium accounting division section. W Desk number eight hundred and sixty one. My name is ceecee Baxter. See for Calvin C for Clifford however most people call me. I've been consolidated for three years and ten months and my take home pay his ninety four. Something you're weak and you have him just listing. All of these numbers I think with the film sets the tone of really clear at the front is that in this modern world people are just numbers you know. Their statistics their facts. You live in this building where your group by what time go to work by what floor you live on. So they don't clog the elevators because humans are just traffic impediment at. I think honestly in a way that idea this idea that human beings are just cogs and inexpensive machine. Is maybe the core thing that unites all of wilders work you know like how valuable is a human life if really what are we really worth murdered by our wife and her lover. Are we worth more when we are trying to buy our affections with like with a millionaire. Yeah are we worth more one more famous. It's about disposal of life right you you. It's like you ran out the sponge once the water is gone. You're you know you don't you throw SORTA way that's not a good analogy but I'm saying the idea that once you're dried up your dried up whether it's you know you lead character in Sunset Boulevard. She is right up. The writer has dried up the you you know the musicians in silicon hot they have dried up. Can't get a GIG. They've dried up. You know And you know you you keep on seeing this idea of even.

"Hey everybody welcome to on schooled. How you doing and I am Paul? Scheer Amy Nicholson is a way on assignment in Sundance. You can follow on twitter issues posting your views of all the movies that she's seeing but she's actually going to be here for today's Today's episode which is about the apartment. I'm just doing the wrap arounds at the top here. If you don't know what unspoiled is about let me tell you this is the podcast where we go through the top one hundred grades films of all time And see if they are as good as people say do they hold up and how they influenced the filmmakers of today and I have to say the apartment is one of these films in my opinion But you also hear Amy's opinion about this film as well we'll get into all of that in just a second but I want to go back to last week's episode where we talked about the wild bunch And on the facebook group You on spoilers. Were pretty divided on this movie view. It got pretty much a fifty fifty split. I know that I've talked to a lot of people who said yes. peckinpah belongs in this list but not the wild bunch. A lot of people think think bring me the head of Alfredo Garcia is the one that should belong on this list. But let's see what people are saying on the message boards. And in other spots Amar Kevin naff rights screenwriting Gurus Sinfield actually new peckinpah on according to him Peckinpah said he would structure his films. This way the first half of the film would lead up to a big event and the second half would be the consequences of that event. You know it's interesting that you say that because I would argue the wild bunch is he's decidedly. Not that I it sort of like a big event that opens the movie and then the whole rest of the movie is the consequence of that right. I mean to in a way. Yes but another way. It's right at the start there. Maybe this is the way that he came up with his style and there are other things along the way but I do believe that's all the fallout all options. That opening scene this Nick Johnson who lets us know that Ernie Borgnine was a freemason. Yes they are real and he was elected. I did too and received a thirty third degree I G H. I don't know what that means but nick at Nick Johnson on twitter actually has a link to an interview review with Ernie Borgnine. As they talk about being a freemason so that's a little fun fact I also found a great Picture that I was able to put up a my little texting acting APP of Ernie eating a popsicle onset and there's so cute about eating a popsicle in the middle of all of this carnage but you can see kind of cool little unschooled tidbits. We can't even get on the air on this APP thing that have been trying to texting thing.

Rizzo had had His or her word because anyone who knows about horror punk I believe they would know that the difference between new metal and goth off email Garrett. Tanner writes would anyone else agree. That The wild bunch is essentially the basis for the modern heist drama. You know we're often told about a gang of professional bank robbers who've a wild car and the group and Intercut the tail with an investigator sometimes connection to that group but always as an extreme desire to catch them even if it's just for justice Some even go as far as include an outside party like General Paci who becomes a real villain and the anti heroes must face them to tone and the examples that Garrett's brings up. Is the heat. The town fast five etc.. No this is actually a really point and I wish Amien I would have talked about that mm length. I think that I've gotten so used to the idea. I mean I even think about Oceans Ocean's eleven ocean's Twelve Ocean's twelve is actually a little more in in that category because the bad guy is about you get it. It's a good movie.

I point agreed to be In an off Broadway children's theater productions that was inadvertently incredibly misguided and racist in order to get a better schedule company This is actually a personal story but I thought you guys would find this entertaining. It's about your friend and robs you vote I had the pleasure of working with him many many years ago.

We were working for which was the outdoor life channel and inside that pizza box was his resume hey the CEO. Got The pizza so the resume and proceeded to hire rob.

We are with them made right after some like it. Hot The apartment and you're in the apartment. He Retains With Stars Jack Lemmon for a role that he wrote himself. As Calvin Clifford a man who works in a giant insurance agency in curries favor with the executives gives right above him. People like Fred macmurray by loaning out his bachelor apartment to all of these men so they can go in and have affairs with their mistresses while he walks the streets of Newark alone and cold and hungry hungry and realizing that all of his neighbors that he is a horrible dastardly. Lethargic Oh and this all works out fine until Fred macmurray starts bringing over the girl that he has a crush on surely McLean as Fran Kubelik who runs the elevator at their giant building. What will he do? How will his conscience fight against the capitalist machine? You you mentioned. It's it's our fourth billy wilder and I came in his podcast being a fan and he was one of the first people that I felt a kinship with as a kid because it was going backwards ads in time to kind of find these directors that you know before what I was watching now and him and Preston sturges hold a very special place in my heart. I think that Preston sturges films often feel similar in the same vein To certain extent whereas billy wilder storms really are incredibly different. We've talked about four films and we've talked a lot on this podcast about doing need more than one film from one director is that important and here is director where I would definitely make a case like Kubrick. You do. I think that he he really just nails different genres so well and they become in kind of like this The apex of them in many ways. Yeah I mean. His body of work is so so broad and so astonishing I could see myself making tiny tweaks here. Would I go through his list. I'm like I do love Sunset Boulevard. I could be at peace if whatever happened to. Jade was on that list instead which is true sacrilegious because I know the movie schlock however I do also deeply.

"Show interviews lead fell endure whatever and this team behind and just team says. Hey this is in you come on back to North Carolina and go back to doing the show the it should be done. Yeah and he goes. You really want me to give up on all my dreams. And meanwhile the network executive is over here saying Zack. We need to do promos right right right. And they say come on come on back with us and he just looks at them shakes his head and walks in follows the lady into the studio and then it cuts to the his crew lonely going back to North Carolina and he suddenly appears and he's like where are you going. I just went back to get my ferns right. It was just because I didn't answer. You silently mocked telling you what I was doing. I wasn't coming with you guys of course with you guys and that is a direct. I rip off of that seem in the apartment man. So great yeah Are you going to keep trying to do that. Satisfy your well. It's it's such A. It's such a good move screenwriting move then I can. That's fantastic all right man. You got anything else. I don't think I I mean it's just it's it's great. Watch it enjoy it. It's kind of a perfect movie I guess the one thing I did WANNA mention was the other thing that they Just as writer wise as well writer wise that thing that he kept doing with Oh yes using wise on the end of something so this is something interesting that you might not know but but so a lot the sophisticated characters who are check lemons bosses keep saying something wise adding wise is to to each of their things like so apartment wise. How you know when it's meant to imply a sophistication a fast talking type of guy? The Jack Lemmon wants to emulate and he starts talking that way which then of course they pay off very end with Shirley maclaine saying saying. I guess that's how it crumbles. Cookie is so gracious. Her finally like telling Fred macmurray I'm not with you anymore anymore. I'm now thinking of of CC Baxter. It's so great. Depends off the very last if you read the script The very last line is not shut up and deal There is a scene description line that says and that's all there is story wise. Wow that's great. It's incredible and so that's just for the actors just for anyone reading the script. Yeah that's how good did they were. They were putting in there. That is amazing or descriptions. That is so cool. Yeah I got to read that book. Yeah great all right thanks man. This is a big treat for me that you take me on love talking about movies awesome. Thanks.

"It really is a choice that you have to make. And and it's it's a great choice. Yeah I mean it it really makes it feel like a very lived in everything about the movie makes I mean they say his address in the movie. So that's right. I went on Google. And it's like it's something I can't remember these academic fifty-seven the upper west so I'm a block away from Central Park right and so I knew sort of where it was happening in the middle of the movie. They say the because Fred macmurray says it's at the taxi driver right right like fifty seven fifty seven so I looked it up in the that apartment is not there but now it just really gives you a great sense of place. Yeah well in the name. Some of the movie is the apartment. It was Not The two lovers. Yeah there's something to that The apartment is like a little character. Yeah and then. They took great pains to make it a little more Sort of shabby and lived in than movies did at the time. Yeah movies at the time. There were billy wilder was saying like you. You know everyone's I. He wasn't saying like this. But my opinion everyone's houses in movies were sort of aspirational people would go to see. Movies is because they wanted to see someone living a better life than they had especially in the in the third season. Which is why these everyone's house were these grand sets and movie like Philadelphia Story Right stuff like that? They had everyone's houses were big had staff and all this kind of stuff and Billy wilder wanted this to be like a Bachelor Pad for it to be realistic and so it was kind of shabby it was small. I mean it's amazing for dudes like us. Oh Oh yeah this. This apartment with the fireplace like a block from Central Park. I I mean it was like but for whatever reason in the sixties right right sitter to little shabby but There's even a poster on the wall that Cameron Crowe and he talked about where we're cameron. Crowe is like. What is that poster? That's like it's over buys fireplace Hank and Billy Wilder Goes Oh. It's a print from the museum. He goes basically in my mind. Jack Lemmon would leave leave his apartment and have to walk around the city all the time so he would spend a lot of times museum. Yeah so we bought a a print from the museum. He's a bachelor he doesn't have anyone to say like. Hey that would look better in a frame right. You know so. It's just like tacked onto the wall like a touch of class. Essentially that's pretty cool. But the tone of it like you were talking about is such a magic trick. Because it's it borders on that Zany kind of thing at the time especially early on with The recurring thing of doctor factor in the wife is the neighbor. Yeah every time you see. The doctor sees another girl go into his apartment. He's like It's like kind love sticky in a way and it would have been great as just that but but man the the moment that turnhout. Then you know we're then. Suddenly we're in a movie about suicide. Then has a very lengthy scene in where a doctor is. Basically trying to get Shirley maclaine. Yeah to regurgitate the pills that she slapping her in the face like in real time essentially just trying trying to get that he doesn't slap her once and then it cuts it fades feel so much better. Yeah no it. It's like in real time of basically like she could go. Yeah Yeah and and I just had never seen a movie with straddling those tones really other than maybe a movie that I talked about on a different movie. PODCAST Something wild that was great. Yeah you know. That's kind of straddled the drama and comedy tones jumping Demi- Demi-. Yeah so I talked. What about on blank check which is dealing with Jonathan Davies filmography one that I saw an eighty six and that was one of my favorite movies at the time because of that town. When I saw the apartment I was like? Oh Wow this is doing the same kind of thing and and and not a lot of movies do that. Well especially in one thousand nine sixty totally. I'm sure it was really divisive back. Then well yeah billy. Wilder was saying that he got a lot of pushback really and a lot of the critics one of them. I think famously called it a dirty movie. How and but Yeah I mean it was dealing with more adult subject matter adults and and but but aside from that is also just a movie about out you know how far you WANNA go and trying to succeed in life Climb up the corporate ladder and which he was. He didn't get the sense he didn't I think he does tell the story of how it started. And he wasn't seeking that out. He didn't offer up his apartment initially right now. The first one was one of his bosses is needed to borrow apartment for some innocuous. Yes that's right which I think the boss was lying to him about why he needed it. Or whatever and and then all of it and then he couldn't say no after that because if you say yes to one guy your other boss says hey I need it and it just became a thing for him. Well Yeah and then it's it's the outskirts of this movie that plays sort of Zany -ness of the time it's always rooted in these in these great scenes that are pretty realistic and believable. Between two people like you were saying but then on the outside like when the when the bosses would bring in the ladies that it was always Kinda Zany and wacky and very sixties in a way ladies swinging dame's and Fred macmurray has all this bebop lingo that he's constantly saying eh one point he goes. Ain't that a kick in the head and I was like is to the song. Come first or did oh no so. I looked it up and they came out at the same in time the D. Martin kick in the head and the apartment. They both came out in sixty like within months of. But ain't that a kick. The head was was written for the movie. Ocean's eleven which billy wilder did work on the script for. Oh interesting which Ocean's eleven is a terrible movie but he talks about in the book about how Frank Sinatra gave him a present things like. I never liked frank. Sinatra and Cameron. Crowe's will why didn't he give you a president. He's like I just did some pungent work on Ocean's eleven right so I I wonder if like billy wilder was like included. Ain't that a kick in the head. That was something that he he said or something. Which Dean Martin? Tom Do a song interesting. Billy Wilder also love Dean Martin and thought he was the funniest guy in the world. Well Steve Martin could have very well. been the Sheldrick Eric. And he's in Billy Wilder next movie one-two-three We haven't seen that. Yeah I haven't seen I haven't watched it yet. And they brought back the kick in the headline again later later in the movie. I think lemon references that somehow. Oh maybe it was Shirley maclaine something about having been kicked in the head. Oh Yeah And they do that a few times. WH- well it's really interesting because just reading. Billy wilder talk about scriptwriting as someone who's like just about to start to write another descriptors very inspiring and it's also. I watched this movie last night and I was really Washington. I was like it's also very intimidating. Because he just is such such an expert at it and the two things he he talked about our If you if the stuff you do in the first act isn't paid paid often your third act Then you're not succeeding right. And he's he is paying off so many things he's not only paying off lines means he's paying off emotional themes he's paying off scenes he like basically the whole third act like the last twenty lines of the movie are payoffs. Yes yeah I think he set up so expertly from the and stuff so unexpected from like. We'll him donate his body. Ready to science as a great lover brings that back when he takes the the Bar lady back right because he starts touting missile for you know they say I should donate about science and the last few lines lines are like Shirley Maclean innocuously just talking about her life in the middle of the movie and how she got to where she's got is saying like well. I wanted a to be a dog refer but I couldn't tell right you know and one of her last lines to Fred. macmurray is going what's wrong with you and we're going well spell it out for you but I can't spell and Jack Lemmon when he's talking to Shirley Shirley maclaine about her suicide attempts zone suicide attempt it gets heavy and and and how he accidentally shot himself in the shooting himself in the head and but he talks about like the need took me six months to get over but the girl I was over in three weeks and he goes you know any any starts. It's such an interesting comment on how someone you feel so close to for a while and can you love with a year later you cannot even ever think of them anymore. Says he says I still hear from her every Christmas she sends me a fruitcake right and then they go. Hey let's the fruitcake tonight and you think it's just like Oh. Wow that's an interesting comment on life. And Shirley maclaine one of her last lines. He says Fred macmurray she goes I'll send him a fruit cake every year. It's just like he's constantly off everything that he said up. He the gun on that That he talks about he pays it off in the last scene with the champagne bottle that clearly sounded real gun. But it's just it's like such an such an expert screenwriter. Move to be like and I know that sometimes when you see a movie You can roll your eyes at those kind of payoffs hall backs the young. Where like someone's calling back but but billy wilder and what he said about is if you can disguise it dry hall bax? Yeah Yeah you know if you if that the thing that that irradiates people about those types of callback says when they're so important in the act and then obviously they're going to be called back in the third act I mean. Yeah yeah can disguise it where it's just like character and you're you're not even thinking that that's it's important and then suddenly it gets called back. Yeah really really powerful. Yeah you can't call too much attention to it. I think like writer types will notice that stuff but but an audience at large just knows that it feels good feels right and I'm a writer type and the fruitcake one. I didn't even remember it from all my previous rewatching coaching just like fuck. Yeah right writer. He's to our fucking so good good at it. Yeah it's crazy and then another thing on the call backs because at the very end of the book. There's sort of a bunch of random things that Cameron Crowe includes like Billy Wilder's top ten tips for screenwriter San stuff but he also includes this speech that he wrote for Gary Cooper for like at a live event to to accept an award right and Gary Cooper. I guess like did a lot of Westerns Westerns. I think or so so but wasn't used to talking all that much so billy wilder writes this acceptance speech and he gets up in the the first the first line is a joke and he goes well. I bet you all thought that I was GONNA get up here and have nothing to say except Yup and then he goes through and thanks a bunch of people and all this kind of stuff and has several other funny lines then the last line is egos. And if you asked me if I've had a wonderful life where I've just just worked with the most amazing people I guess all I would have to say is young his just like I wasn't expecting it God. Damnit he's like uh he he's. He's good at disguising something as innocuous when you first hear it and then just you know it makes the payoff. Just really powerful. Here's the thing saving money with. GEICO is almost better than playing pickup basketball..
