"So we're going to wrap up our series about how to be a real estate rockstar even if you are indeed an introvert. And so we're on .14 and 15, and then as Tim said next week, we're going to start a new series with you. So point number 14 upgrade everything immediately. Audrey Hepburn once spoke about how she dressed for the roles she played so that she could better play the characters she was asked to portray. Keep in mind that she had very little acting coaching before she got her first major roles, just like many of you haven't had that much real estate training or the training you've had, maybe hasn't been serving you well. So she was in that same boat, and here's a great quote from her. She said, I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure in wearing lipstick, I believe in pink. So I would like that one. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls and I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles. So here's the secret to that. Confidence does come from looking the part, at least part of your confidence should come from looking the part. If you're unsure about your suit choices, go to Neiman Marcus and have a consultant help you. You don't even have to go Neiman Marcus or someplace exactly. Well, you can just look at magazines and whatnot. You just need to sign yourself up for accessory but you don't have to wing it either. You know right, exactly. Well that is your point. Ultimately. But Julie, you know, just along those lines. There are tons of places online now, especially for men that you essentially send your measurements in your pictures and then you can have you can sign up for like a personal shopper but it's a personal shopper, but they send you suggested outfits like complete. You don't have to think about anything. And then they'll send them to you in a box, you try on what you like. You keep what you like and what you don't like you send back..

"By looking at him because he very rarely rarely appeared on screen in his own face. He was a big, strapping dude and was famous for playing. Well under the helmet. It was the voice of James Earl Jones. He passed away at 85. But if you're a star Wars, fanatic and nut cases I am then you know that name very, very well. So a zoo, we think about celebrities and those who have passed on milestone. People who have passed on. I was reading a little bit about why we find ourselves connected to celebrities and feel certain remorse. When they're gone, we'll It makes obvious sense. You know the context. Is that we can sort of imagine them. As us or we as them, and that's why we tend to grieve and also the importance of ritual and community and grieving when we all have Some reason to share. I remember when Kobe Bryant, his helicopter went down. It was a shock to most people, and that's why they Often say to remember where you were. When Kennedy or Elvis. There's something about that losing a celebrity. Suddenly that brings us together, but in an event According to the psychologists and psychiatrists and those with lots of degrees are celebrities give us a lot. They represent an ideal ized version of ourselves that we can strongly relate to, and And it's healthy, healthy to miss them. It's as important to miss our own loved ones, of course, but there's something collectively positive about it. So we've got two things going on anything good. That happened not on the political scale, but in terms of your life or in terms of life in general. During this much maligned and rightfully so year and also a celebrity's. You might want to recognize we go next to Florence. Welcome Euron WBC's Night side with Jordan in for Dan. Hi, Florence. All right. Hi, Jordan. Uh, celebrity Sean Connery. Uh oh. Be still my heart.

It made me smile and Say nice. Wow. Um, all we've been hearing about the you know the police that have Going wrong. Um In the news. Is there was a mother, I guess over Christmas who wish shoplifting in a food store to get Christmas dinner for God and her Children and the officer that came on the scene. Instead of arresting her. He noticed that all she had taken with food item he went in and border. $250 just cut So that she could buy a Christmas dinner. That is, uh, he said that he had two young George's himself. And So that was a wonderful thing he did. I would just simply say that there are always going to be stories that bother us about any organization. Any group of individuals in any field and certainly police were under great stress and there are problems and we have to fix an address those problems, but By and large. These are people who get up every day, deciding to risk their lives for us, and I couldn't agree with you more. That's a beautiful story. Beautiful story. Yeah, it just made me smile.

"Was the impact of this recording? Brubeck time on your career? Well, it It saved wonderful time in my life because We had been Struggling for years, too. Get to be more known. And as you mentioned the cover of Time magazine was really something that helped us a lot. But when you mentioned Audrey, it Was Audrey Hepburn that we had in mind. And We never realized that That she ever had heard this tune. There was no communication like that. And because she was so important at the United Nations for the work she did with Children. When they did the memorial service for her there. Her husband asked that they play what you just played. And, uh, They said that she usually played it every night or put it on. Her headphones as she walked through her garden and Switzerland. So It was wonderful to hear that. I wish Paul Desmond had been around to know that she listened to it and liked it. How is the recording Brubeck time different from your previous recordings. Well, at that time I was starting To, um Do different. Time signatures. But the record companies were kind of leery of getting out of the usual dance temples that were mostly for four. An occasional walls. So eventually, after Brubeck time we did time out. Which had take five. Blue Rondo three to get ready. And again, the record companies were a little afraid of it. But Against their wishes. I forced them to put time out out. And it became the biggest seller they ever had in jazz. No, your your first record that I think really made, Um An impression. On the record buying public. I mean, I got bought a lot was a jazz goes to college, and it was sessions recorded at three different colleges. Yeah, and You know there's a picture of you on it. You're wearing your glasses and that those glasses were really such a part of your image. And I think, in part because that record was jazz goes to college and become part because of those kind of thick plastic. Glasses. You maybe had the image of being what was known in those days as an egghead. Oh, I wish I had. I'm not that smart, but People forget that. At the same time, we had a huge Following places like the Apollo Theater, the Howard Theater in Washington. And, uh, the universities. That They used to call black universities, Afro American universities. We played the so called black clubs all through the south, where there We're no white people came in. And in some of the black clubs. We were the only white group that came in. This is what I wish people would remember on. We integrated. Many, many universities. In this country. And, uh, Those are important things to remember. Wasn't just Ivy League. Places. Have. We were really doing some work that People seem to forget. How hard it was to do. You had to have a police escort to the concert. Mm hmm. President College, refusing to let you go on in the students demanding you gone. I could tell you a lot of stories about that. The problem was that you were wider that one of the musicians in the band was black. Eugene Wright was black. Yeah, so that was that was we couldn't do some television shows. Because in those days you couldn't have black and white together. One show I had to turn down. Duke Ellington took Does he? At the moment he had an old black band. Sometimes said Duke would have AH white drummer like Louis Belson. And that would maybe Give him problems if they just didn't want mixed groups on television. Let me play what might be the most famous of the Brubeck Quartet recordings and let's take five. Which recorded in 1959. Would you talk about this composition? It's it's a Desmond composition, but I think you worked with him on it. Yeah. Mm hmm. Has done a radio show in Canada before he died, where, he said. I'm so fortunate that Dave assigned me You do? The section and 54 because That was the one track I wanted Paul to do. As a solo for my Percussion is the great drummers Joe Morello. Was Joe would often play in 54 time backstage, which is, uh, Time signature that was very rarely, if ever used in jazz. So I would hear Paul start to improvise over job playing on a drum pad. Before you'd go on stage. And, uh, So I said, just write some of them. Melodies. The idea is that you're doing And bring it to rehearse on a few days. So that's what happened. He came And he had some ideas. That I thought were great. The first thing he said, I can't write anything in 54. I've tried and I said, Let me see what you got. So he Showed me what he had. And I said, I can put this together. It would be great. And, uh, I put this what he had together as a team. One theme, too. And that's how that the thing was born, and I need to take five and he objected that name and I said Why Palm, he said. Nobody knows. Would take fine means. What does it mean? I said everybody knows. But you, Paul Desmond, what? Take five means So I argued, winning. I kept that title, which I think Is a great title. Then, of course, I later wrote the words to it, so I had to look a little bit to do with this tune. Well, before we hear it. I want to thank you very much for talking.

"To the late Audrey Hepburn it would have been her ninety first birthday today also have Dame Judi Dench rocking the florals on the cover of British vogue the oldest woman to ever appear on the cover yes he said he's not yeah now retains that staff and she's going to keep going Julia yes there you know I was talking with a friend of mine this weekend and I was just saying how she was after she listen to me you know cry and be sad about Danny loves he's of a mind is concerned really should shallow too and I said what is it she says I cried when I heard is he's on Marshall's was cloned honey that's a big ice cream in them Muddy Waters in south Minneapolis yeah so seeing that and I and I think you know there's just everyone is so raw enter tender it were heightened in a way that Sykes grew mac mercury retrograde because this is like word or character a James thousand percent or something people are just really rock and their feelings are their bubble there so close to the surface I would everybody I personally feel that way yeah and I know that you do and I would agree I think that there's no distractions Lori this is the part that's getting me I love watching tennis I love watching golf I like a baseball game I'm in the garage I like to listen the twins in the background on the radio right I love listening to even my time you know I can say and then I just you know we love going out to eat we like bars and the like entertaining there's nothing normal sorry then you know because I know people are upset about van getting like all right eleven and then you have somebody like you know R. Donald he has been on the air with us for eighteen years I mean it feels so personally exhausting on many levels and then when you've got a few steady things that you can count on that apple Kerr gets the outside and then it just feels even more upsetting although you we would have been upset about this no matter what I don't think it would happen if it if it was all over the place it went down because he has been the perfect time yeah in so many businesses but all right Hey I just want to say this well here is what I thought this would be just a bright no because I do know I talk to Donnie last week you know he was planning on going out to see his brother in Portland in June you were going somewhere I've got a family wedding in Seattle my knees in the middle of July and so this is from GMA George Stephanopoulos was talking to United Airlines chief communications officer about just what are the changes because as the way I United delta and American goes I mean this is what's gonna be happening with your a smaller carriers like a sun country here and here Alaska but here we go let's bring the chief communications officer for United Airlines right now Joshua is Josh let's begin with these changes that are taking place today eliminated that middle seat on most planes what other changes should passengers expect today the first thing people should know if we do have a new requirement that all of our customers are going to wear masks on board the aircraft we hear you to bring your at the airport with you but if you don't have one we can provide you one of the gate but George what we've done is we've actually over all our procedures to ensure that these give all of our four seven hundred fifty electrostatic sprayer can be used to clean the aircraft with the same equipment that they use in hospitals the impact them we're getting a boarding procedures to board back to front so that when your boarding aircraft you have to walk half a whole bunch of people to get the door really making dramatic changes okay can we just talk about you Far dean yeah the cleaning yeah so that is something that all the airlines are doing and that's how the disinfectant hospitals it yes three things so they're doing that anyway I don't know when airlines stopped boarding back to front I think it had to do with when a lot of frequent flyers in different women and children who need extra time older people military and first class rank first and they started doing different levels of global level medallion goal novel medallion or whatever take me today medallion yeah that is how it always used to be done for years and years you board a bus a plane to get from the back to the front right is that moves everything let traffic quicker is more efficient yes so that is one good thing that you need that change I mean first class was so good to go in for yeah they would they'd still get on first but do you think about when you go down the aisles because I've been I've been in middle seats lately and yeah my status zero yeah so I'm in the middle close to the background in some of the middle well this is another good thing though that they're going to social distancing them playing that makes me I'm glad about that that means I might get an island window seat for my ticket which is hasn't had one you go down and you've got your bags and you're just sitting there like everyone is already filed into your bank in your bank in your bang and scares me scares me scares me and it's just southwest of the state law by the back of the plane you know they were the only ones that still did that and the reason why I think that the airlines got away from that because then the lowest of the low cost carriers could then start all you can pay five dollars for priority boarding it was another way to get extra fees like they did when they started having bagged baggage and I think that you're going to see a lot of your lines well this United guy said you know there's a lot of good deals for airfare is if people are looking at making trips or whatever but maybe they're going to add some of these things that they were warning people to pay for checking a bag maybe we're gonna see that goal way late at night because of virus allergy is better than no but in the rain it's like heads in beds if you had a room hotel business kind of the same thing so they're gonna have to back up because they are going to get have to get the public's trust are back into flying and people will want to fly because people have family and live in one place to go what were used to be said something about not knowing when only one I know that they're clean absolutely and we like that idea will why not so why not not sell the middle seat because Hey if your flights are going to be full anyway so Intel they start to fill up and then we've changed our policy yeah yeah yeah makes sense but yeah so anyway the and then the masks is what everyone is going to be going to and I'm glad for the crew because think about it I mean if they're on a domestic flight you're turning you my that says six hundred people you could be exposed to in one day share I like that but I do have a question for you guys to mask or not mask and this is the one I am all for mass I get it I've been wearing them on the at the probably places yeah but when a newscaster out in the field is doing the news in the middle of the ocean okay but wearing a mask I think that some news organizations are deciding to lead by example okay it just feels very lead by example they're not around people well they are they've got a crew around last night they've got a crew on the yacht again camera person a sound person maybe there's a makeup person it's like okay that's why there is some modeling going on okay the funny thing is with me eyes that I have got to stop smiling in my math because I'm smiley name we steam smile wrinkles those are going to see them no one can see it I just need to live right here but I'm just like hi and I've got a mask on the high end I'm smiling the whole time people wouldn't even know whatever when we used to worry about Beachy resting phase yes now it's like have big cabbies mask face yeah anyway hard listen we gotta go it's time for an impasse get your laughs after lunch.

Mo- Bidu Aries. And we've got him here on talking tech to tell you all about it. I'm Jefferson Graham. Let's just jump in and hear from oh, I'm a long time fan, reader of obituaries and, you know, any good OBE. It writer will tell you that a good old. But it's really about the life of I am of a person rather than the death of a person on CBS Sunday morning. I've always loved profiling people. And it occurred to me that there were a lot of great people from the pass. It didn't get a proper sendoff and some that didn't get an e send-off at all. And so that this would would be the, the right vehicle. I guess as cold award is at is to, to, to profile the subjects that are interesting to me, you know, and, and like I said, there's a lot to choose from beyond von meter in TV brothers. You're doing Sammy Davis in who else? Meander falls, because when they died out, forty thousand years ago, there was no open at least not one that we could find now there might be a stone tablet, somewhere in the Levant where they were given you know, sort of a proper sendoff, but I don't I don't think so we couldn't find anything in our own search in the archives are in Lexis Nexis, which I think people still use. So this was this was important for us to do next season. This is something that I've always been interested in the black congressman of reconstruction, which I know sounds like a funk band, but it's this period right after the civil war when there are a number of African American men most of whom had been slaves, who end up serving in the United States Congress. So it's those little pockets that are, that are interesting to me as well as well as people like Audrey Hepburn Sammy Davis junior, who we hopefully all. Love and remember. But our I think are due, for sort of a new a reevaluation and you're still doing Sunday morning at the same time. Absolutely. I have a lot of stories in the works. They're going off tomorrow to go profile Angie Dickinson, which I'm really excited about. So I was watching old policewoman episodes last night, and I highly recommend getting your hands on a policewoman DVD. Yes, they still sell those DVD's. That is an listening to the DVD commentary. It is, you know, I don't listen to enough DVD commentaries in his hilarious listening to her reminisce about the show what, what will be up. So it'd be next week the third one, the one that's releasing this Thursday is forgotten forerunners, which may be on ongoing thing. I do the years have collected names of people who I call sort of the pioneers before the pioneers. So there's a woman named Elizabeth Jennings. An African American woman who almost exactly. Hundred years before Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks was was was was asked to sat down on that on that boss, excuse me. Among Gumri, Alabama, Elizabeth Jennings in New York was kicked off of a streetcar. And she ended up suing the railroad company that owned that streetcar. And she won and this is before the civil war, and led to the integration of New York's transportation system. And I mean it's a remarkable achievement and it's almost equally remarkable that we don't know her name. So this episode this Thursday, is about her about the African American man who played major league baseball, what passes the major leagues sixty four years before Jackie Robinson antibody woman who was the highest paid director in Hollywood during the silent era. So these are all names that I'm pretty sure you don't know. And but so it's this episode is our first where. Featuring people that you probably never heard of.

"From Germany into the middle of the Netherlands. So I mean, it's, it's prime real estate and, and that's where Audrey began war, and began occupation that age eleven okay, so she, she moves ended she moved in with relatives. I'm not going to try and pronounce. All these, these Dutch names, let you do it for you. Okay. That's great. Because I it was his everything was really long. You know. Because obviously the country's been around for a long, long time. So. When she moved back to where did she live? She lived with her mother and one of her half brothers in an apartment called on yawns Bennett single, which is one of the main drags in downtown Arnhem Arnhem central so they lived there, that's where they watched the German troops marching from this third Florida -partment window, and, you know, at age eleven Audrey was only scared because a lot of the adults around her were scared. She was just, you know, it was kind of a spectacle for her. And she said that after the occupation began, you know, life, went pretty much back to normal. Germans were there. But it wasn't oppressive in any way and had she already stand started her studies in dance by then. No, she started her study right after the occupation began, and in the fall of nineteen forty she began ballet lessons, just really late start, you know, for a ballerina to start at age eleven but that when she got her start and she was on the fast track because she loved it so much within a couple of years, she was arms most famous ballerina. I mean. She ate wreath and slept dance. So she, she turns twelve she does her first recital her first recital, which was a big dark secret for the rest of her life within the Fairmont time in Arnhem, which was this, this concert hall that the German army bear mocked over for its own use. So she danced, her first recital was for a packed audience of German soldiers. Right. Yeah. I can understand why she didn't want everybody to know about that. But was because of her her mom or mother, getting involved in or mother planning, this whole thing. Not her mother planning the whole thing. But that's where the that's where the aren't ham should Don school had its first recital was in the Mark time there were two places. It could have been could have been the Schober the city theatre could have been in Vermont time, and it just happened to be there. But yes, it at that time, Adrianna mother elephant hamster was a leading. Patron of the arts patron of the arts in Arnhem, and definitely. Pro-nazi. That's, that's all right. Let's jump forward as the occupation becomes less friendly. Quickly to didn't it? Yeah. Because that's why Dale you have to put some history. And because you have to give context to what happens in the Beverly, which is greatly influenced by the incursion, the German army invasion of Russia. So when they need in front opens up, and they send massive amounts of troops. They sent whole armies east into Russia. The squeezed got put on the Dutch people, you know, the food supply, dwindled, coal dwindle petrol be paid non existent. And, and from nineteen forty two on it got worse and worse and worse for the Dutch people. And that was because of Hitler's eastern front. I don't think any of us really were were aware of how terrible in dire. The situations were in places like the Netherlands during World War Two, and this, this is what this book really pointed out to me, and we're talking with Robert Matson, author of Dutch, girl, Audrey Hepburn. During World War Two. Well, so as soon as the Germans started cracking down on the on the people of Netherlands, the resistant movement, started up didn't it probably started. Germans were there. Yeah. Took a while for the Dutch organized. And, you know, they had some, you know, it was kind of they were hapless in the beginning, but they picked up steam, and that's why Audrey uncle, uncle Otto, count von Limburg theorem was arrested, as one of south leading Dutch citizens. He was a district attorney in Arnhem, and he was arrested by the s s and all of the leading citizens of the Netherlands from everywhere, in the Netherlands, were rounded up and put into basically a prison. And they were called death hostages. And the idea was if the Dutch resistance in any way acted up wherever they acted up the people from that area, we're going to be taken out and shot. That was the way the SS was going to handle any interaction. Oh, I guess I have to give this away a little bit. How, how did they, they choose her uncle to be one of the people that were were killed down when he was executed? He was singled out because one of the leading Dutch Nazi had a had had a conflict with him. He was he was a really true blue guy. And he, he was very pro Iran. Yeah. You know, pro- Dutch ruling house, so he would not buckle under and do think the Nazi way you know, he would not enforce Nazi law because it wasn't Dutch law. And so that led to help them at arrest rest, and that led to this old beef led to him being one of the first five were executed on fifteen August nineteen forty two four a train that had been blown up by the Dutch resistance in Rotterdam. And that's just, you know, one of the first examples of Audrey being at being probably aware of what was really going on around her. Oh, yeah, I was turning point, not only for Audrey but for her mother elephant, hamster, the pro formerly pro-nazi, you know, and patroness of the art all of a sudden, she banded together with the rest of her family with so auto with Mary to LS sister. Okay, measure. And so Ella actually moved in, and Audrey actually moved in with measure after the execution and bay spent the rest of the war together and really Ella was a very if, if, if this was if she was alive today elephant hamster would be considered like gone, she would be like counterculture, you know, okay, that's the way she was. And so she was out there. She wasn't really a normal person. And so what her sister was very, very traditional Dutch aristocracy, and she's the one that became like a defacto mother. To Audrey during the war years. The let-let's jump ahead. So there under the control of Germans for two three years, and you in, in the book, it's a, it's a great story about this operation marketplace at Montgomery, you know, sold Eisenhower, you know, we'll just drop all these per to present people. Oh, welcome us with open arms and will walk our ways into Germany. Well, didn't quite go that way. Did it? It did not leading up to market garden. There was for Audrey. She becomes a teenager. Now she's thirteen. She's fourteen years old, when she fourteen she made a doctor in the little town, they had moved to, to be with measure after the execution of auto, and it was called the belt. And that was where Audrey spent the rest of her war. And she met this doctor who was a leader in the Dutch resistance. And he started to rely on Audrey to do these resistance activities on his behalf and super cool guy like this wash buckling guy had been an Olympic athlete. And so, I started to she became his it's like volunteer assistance, if doctor and she would deliver messages for the resistance, she would take food and messages to downed allied airmen, like the one I talked about who make an down through another. She was doing that. She was delivering Iran. You Krahn which was the Dutch resistance newspaper, and she began to dance for the resistance, and all of this was before market garden. So it was while Arnim was still relatively at peace. She was dancing for the resistance to raise money for. Jews in hiding for Dutch soldiers in hiding and they were all over the place and the Netherlands. I mean, then the Dutch people are really clever. And with the Germans at every turn, and Audrey was helping to supply these people with food and clothing, and then came Montgomery's grand idea to drop ten thousand British airborne on Arnhem to secure the our number bridge, part of this big operation where they US eighty second and one, oh, one was going to come. We're going to capture bridges south of Barnum, and it was all going to come together and do this grand scheme. Well, of course it was a disaster. And it it changed, everything for the people of Arnhem when market garden lapsed and the two German Panzer divisions just happened to be an ornament that time that the paratroopers dropped. And so here are these lightly armed paratroopers against two Panzer divisions. You know, f Panzer divisions and. It was a bloodbath, and Audrey was right there. Four. Right in the middle of it. She in the book you mentioned that they thought that they were being liberated and everybody was put their flags out and started celebrating. And then it didn't quite work out the way that should have. And then the Germans kind of, you know, retaliated, of course, and captured so many of these English young men in the you mentioned that in Audrey house, or in her aunt's house. They kept a an English pilot in the house for months. And he was actually he wasn't a pilot. He was one of the British airborne. He was one of the Rendell of I British airborne, and they after the battle after the, the route all of these Red Devils, were were scattered through help and the doctor I just talked about with responsible for allocating them into safe houses, and he had thirteen of them in the rafters of his own garage, and one of them, or perhaps, to I couldn't get story. Exactly right. We're put at villa book-aholic which was fun, hamster home, Andres home, and it became like one of the proudest moments of her life that, she got to participate in sheltering one of these British airborne troops. Well, the retaliation after that, and the extension of the war, did not do the Dutch any good of food supplies, as you mentioned were already minimum, but they dropped even more along with no electricity. No water. No anything. And yeah. It, it just what happened. What happened next was that, that there was a railway strike coinciding with operation market garden between those two events. And the way the German saw the Dutch embracing the liberators, the British Americans. They cut off the food supply to the entire Netherlands, the Germans cut off the food supply complete and that created what they called the hunger. Winter of nineteen forty four forty five and Audrey was in the middle of that. And I had heard conflicting stories, you know, it wasn't so bad in Veld. It wasn't you know as bad invalid as it was an Amsterdam. So I took that information which I had gotten from this young historian, just on one particular day, and I was involved in Arnhem, and then I went to talk to some survivors, who had lived through the war with Audrey no side by side with Audrey. And I said, well, I heard that there really wasn't, you know, the famine wasn't so bad here in felt and boy the looks. I got, you know, I mean, the touch people can give you a withering look and, and they told me stories of exactly how bad it was all the kids had Dima, Audrey headed Dima. She talked about having stretch marks on her ankles, her life from, from the swelling in her ankles, in her knees from Dima. She, she was weeks away from dying when the famine finally was broken by Swedish ships coming in with food. So I mean it was really bad for about three months after the battle of Arnhem. It's a it's a harrowing tale. That's for sure about a young girl, growing up in, you know, in Holland during World War, Two, the book is Dutch, girl, Audrey Hepburn in World War Two, and we're talking with Robert Matson. And she took all these lessons that she learned there in unfortunately, we don't have time to get into the whole thing, which, of course, we want people to arrive by the book, and I encourage them to buy the book because it's, it's a great read. It's. I don't know. It's, it's just such a history lesson that I think, so many of us need to be aware of that these things occur during war, and that we're not even aware of what happened during that because most it's not something that you study in, you know, in US history in high school. But so she took this lessons, and I have to be honest, I just finished the book today. And she, she was she ended her life, you know, trying to help starving children around the world. In addition to being of course, a great actress in an just an amazing talented woman, but she, she ended her life, you know, working for starving children in Africa. Could you talk about that just a little? Yeah. Well, after the experience of the hunger, winter in belt the town where she was things got really bad. She went from famine into being on the front lines of the final assault of Canadian troops to liberate the Netherlands, and how there was house-to-house fighting there were, there were bombing straight things, and she was in the middle of all of that. And, and that is what made her dedicated decades later to helping children specifically in war-torn territory. And so when she got involved with UNICEF. That was her mission. She remembered exactly what it was like to be a young person in the middle of a war started by adult and she wanted to help children who were now in that situation that same situation. And so, you know, I was neutral, Audrey Hepburn when I started. And when I ended I was like, you know, this woman was a Saint, she really was for her last trip to Somalia, the one that ultimately help to kill her. It was another war torn seeing like she had lived through in Belgium, in Mogadishu in Somalia, but it was much much much much worse, and it broke her spirit to see the devastation and the dead children, hundreds of thousands of children, buried here and there or on the surface dead. She came back and tried to tell the world about it, but she was so sick. I mean she got so sick so fast..

"And right on the main face page of our website. Will allow you to register for this next week drawing actually during our benefits programs. So make sure that you do that. And I would be very miss, if I did not mention that we also receive funding from the Vietnam veterans of America, Charles s kettles, chapter three ten VFW post four twenty three and the American Legion post Forty-six, all of them here in our Michigan. Well, today's program is going to be really fun for me. I know because we've had our guest on one other time. That's Robert Matson, and he writes books about celebrities and what they did during World War, Two era, and, you know, what are they were and so forth. And we had him on back in September of two thousand eighteen with Jimmy Stewart book about Jimmy Stewart's career in the army air corps as a pilot and eventually retired from the air force reserves as general, which is kind of cool. And since Jimmy Stewart is one of my favorite actors I thought the story was great. And this book, though, we're going to be talking about, is about my other, my favorite actress, and that's Audrey Hepburn and for many of you probably don't know the history, Audrey Hepburn is that she is from the Netherlands, and she was stuck there during World War Two as a child, and that's what we're going to be talking about today with Robert Matson, and so without. Further ado, Robert, welcome back to veterans radio. Thanks dale. It's good to be here. Well, it's just terrific to talk to you again. And I wanna remind our teller audience about, as the books are not only fascinating stories about the individual person in this case, Audrey Hepburn, but it's the historical information that you pack into these stories, and that's, that's what I found most interesting. How did you come up with Audrey Hepburn? I was in Europe, retouching the Jimmy Stewart book mission. And for a while I was based in Arnhem in the Netherlands, because some, Jim crews were shot down opened another land, and they would fall into the hands of the Dutch resistance, who would be, you know, he greatly conveying them down through the country toward Belgium, and then Spain. So I was following the route of one of those guys and it took me to Arnhem and, and I found out as I was there that Audrey Hepburn had spent the war there, and I thought, well, that's pretty darn interesting. And I tried to find more information about that. And there really wasn't a lot out there. And I thought you mean somebody hasn't done a book on though. I see the opportunity, and I started right away. Well, it's lucky that you were there. And in the book, the book is entitled Dutch, girl, it's Audrey Hepburn and World War Two by Robert Matson. Her story, I think is, is really just an amazing story of a young child. Could could you kind give us a little background before we get into the actual war era, the warriors? Yeah. When she was when she was six years old. Her parents became enamored with Adolf Hitler and they, they were part of the British aristocracy at that time, they, they were originally from Belgium, Audrey mother elephant hamster with a Baronet from the Netherlands, but and her father was a sort of a narrative, well banker, but bankers in air quotes, you can't see them, but I'm. If you just kind of a CAD, and so she married, this cat and ended up in Belgium, where Audrey was born. And then when Autry was about five or six both have her parents became not he lovers. It wasn't ended the fat in nineteen thirty four and nineteen thirty five among the British social stack this to think that you know, at all Hitler was a rock star. It was before things went really, really bad. So they went to Munich and they met Hitler, and while they were doing this, they sort of stuck Audrey under two half brothers in, in the Netherlands, and at became quite a problem, and soon, the CAD father left, the family left elephant Hanes with the children and when it became a Nazi agent and spent all the years leading up to World War, Two working for the Nazis, sort of, you know, scoping out England scoping out Europe or the takeovers that were playing and Audrey mother continued to be pro Nazi into the beginning of the occupation of the Netherlands in nineteen forty so because the Netherlands had been neutral. In the great war, LS hot. It would be safer for Audrey to beat in another land, because she had sent her off the boarding school because away, sort of gallivanting around Europe in the nineteen thirties. So Audrey came back to the Netherlands, just about five months before yucky. Pation may nineteen forty so and at that time she was eleven years old. Right. Okay. And where was she in the Netherlands, many to our audience? And this is something I had to do is whereabouts are the Netherlands in relationship to Germany, and Brussels and France. I mean the Belgian. Hi, yes. So the Netherlands, is northwestern. It's in the northwestern quadrant of Europe. It is west.

"Not during a scene with her finish said later, my new I was acting, but my heart didn't and my body. Certainly didn't I won't discuss it more because of the degree of intimacy involved. That was Finney the chemistry between the two is unmistakable Harris writes, and perhaps at its most powerful during the scenes when you're wondering whether Mark and Joanna should stay together at all a counter to your point about the Manzini score. He says, Don and gives their dilemma a great glossy coat from the gorgeous animated opening credits by 007 genius MAURICE binder to what may be the most melancholy romantic theme, Henry Mancini ever composed and then on its poignancy. He says undone in steady hand to for the road. Does what only a Hollywood movie can do it convince you to beautiful movie stars tooling through France and car are just like us. It's everybody's marriage. That's on trial in this film. If you've ever failed to let a fight go or said one thing too many or kept silent rather than apologize. You're likely to recognize a bit of yourself in the shards of the Wallace's the point about how they're just like us the scene that I think does that. So well is when they are forced to stay in the chichi hotel and have to kind of dodge around the fact that they can't afford to tell the restaurant. I mean, those charged for it is just a great secret. So fun so two for the road, my choice. Maybe Mark Harris's choice. If indeed he was participating in the marathon Thanos pick. I know it's not your choice though, Josh. And you know, what it's also not the choice of another guest. We have teased at last week that my daughter Sophie has been watching all of these films with me the first film finding marathon any of my children have fully participated in. And she wanted to play along and weigh in with her choice for best picture. I'm Sophie Manar in my awards for best picture goes to funny face. I was sucked in soon as the bundle of pink fabric hits the camera during the opening number it sets the tone for the whole movie fun wins ical, vibrant that. Coupled with an excellent performance from Audrey Hepburn led to experience where to quote, my dad. I couldn't wait to rewatch it as I was watching it. So there's my daughter quoting me quoting same van Haldeman? But that's fine. We'll go with it all goes round and round. Well, I knew Sophie was sharp. But this seals the deal. I mean, she she got the pick. Right. Funny faces the best picture of this marathon. I'll admit I probably enjoyed charade as much while watching it. But I think for me funny face has those musical production numbers that just are going to put it over the top. If you're comparing the two not only what I've already mentioned in these awards, but how about on how to be lovely that satirical, duet with Hepburn and Kate Thomson. I think that one really is crucial because it undercuts some of the movies fashion fascination that that they got into labout. That's great. Irene George Gershwin's. He loves and she loves I don't think we talked about this when we reviewed it at all. But this is where Hepburn an Astaire are at an. Outdoor wedding photo shoot. And they dance their way across a stream by lightly stepping onto a floating raft. I mean, here's another almost over the top Don touch could have been a pick for physio seen as well. So funny face. It's just stuffed with production numbers. Most of them quite delightful. Domine, of course, will forever be known for co directing singing in the rain. But I do think funny face has deserves a place in the top tier musicals conversation. Well, it's my runner up certainly for this marathon film. I did enjoy and has so many of those great done in moments. And touches that's our marathon. Are thanks again to Sophie to Nathaniel, of course, for all of his insights and launching all of these conversations. We hope you enjoyed this marathon whether you were following along or not and able to watch every film, we do have another marathon coming up. We don't have the date set exactly for when it will commence, but we're going to take a look at the work of Josef von Sternberg and Marlene Dietrich that collaboration. You can find.

And also if you can't think of the title of movie, describe it for us, and we can probably help you out with that too. If we don't know it certainly our listeners probably will. So I'm trying to think of what Audrey Hepburn last movie was because she was in. I know what it is. Was it always always always Spielberg spill movie? Yeah. That's by the way. That's a that's a a a vastly. Underrated Steven Spielberg movie. I thought that movie was I thought that movie was really terrific. It was a good movie. And it didn't, you know, didn't go over well as big as Spielberg's other movies, but I really liked it. And I loved her. She made a nice appearance in that. But that was the last movie always. Yeah. And he really wanted her to to do that, you know, she didn't really want to she was involved in so many other things that acting was. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And she hadn't she did. You know, she was in. He was in Peterberg, Don movie, they all laughed that was in the early eighties. She did a TV movie. And then always there was a big break because she sixty seven she did wait until dark. She didn't do Robin and Marian until seventy six which by the way, a great movie. If time have you ever seen a Robin Marian with Sean Connery and Audrey Hepburn. I have not had the pleasure really, really terrific. She was in bloodline. They all laugh love among these TV movie her last movie was always she didn't make a ton of movies. No, she made a big impression with not a huge some of these some of the people that you go to their IMDB page. It's like nine scroll down fifty fifty feet to see all their credits this not so much. But you know, I it's like anything else Nick in Hollywood. There's you rarely hear about all the roles that different actors actresses turned down. Yeah. And also, she was an activist to she did a lot of a lot of work as a as an activist. You know, the other the other night, Jeff, I was lucky enough to to have have screened Alfred Hitchcock's north by northwest. We had a really big crowd and everybody was so fantastic to see on the big screen. I mean, the crop duster scene and the amount Rushmore sequence amazing on the big screen. Absolutely amazing. And we had a really big crowd. And that reminds me bring that up is because Cary grant's in and carry charade with Audrey Hepburn, which was a really great movie. So, but she she was she's an amazing actress and just beauty just a an actual beauty. So the seven movie collection to give away. But first we've got some people who are calling and texting with some questions. Let's see what we can do here. Here's Rick WGN. Hi, rick. I doing. All right. What's up? Well, there is a great movie if you like horses in great scenery stars Don Johnson, it was when the army would change over from orces into mechanized army. The army decided they were gonna shoot all orces Dan Jansen still take some up in Canada. And do you know you're trying to figure out the name of this movie? Yeah. Do you know how long hold how old it is? I think it's in the seventy early eighty seventies early eighties. Okay. Well, I don't know that went off beat of hand. Do you know? Yeah. That's that's in pursuit of honor in pursuit of honor. From it's actually from nineteen ninety five. It was a made for cable. Oh made for cable. Okay. Those are sometimes hard to find. In pursuit of honor. If I will say this though, because sometimes these TV movies, you know, they don't really get a good DVD or Blu Ray release a lot of a buddy pursuit of honor from nineteen ninety five and it is actually vailable on prime video. So if you if you subscribe to prime video, you can watch it, and I'm sure it's available on video on demand. So just look for it that way, Rick. Okay. All right, buddy. Good idea. What? All right, there you go in pursuit of honor. Don johnson. Very good after you. Remember, the oh, man. What was the name of the movie dead bang you ever? See dead bang. Oh, good movie you ever see. Oh, yeah. One of my favorite scenes ever is hall in the movie. He's copies alcohol cop in the movie. And it's a John Frankenheimer directed if I'm not mistaken. Yeah. He did. Didn't he it was Frankenheimer? Yeah. But here's the one thing that I remember about the one thing that I clearly remember about that movie. He's he he he's he's a total south in in the movie, and he gets hammered one night, and then has to get up because they're going to raid. This this house where these drug dealers or whatever I don't remember the details, but he gets he gets loaded the night before completely load any wakes up, and he's completely hung over. This is the one thing that I remember about the movie, I remember liking the movie, but remember the most which I thought was like a great realistic touch because if you are severely hung over the last thing you need to do is get into a foot chase in the middle of the summer. And that's exactly what happens when they do the rate. He's all he's still screwed up from the night before. And he looks terrible. And obviously if you have a massive hangover, and you're still a little bit trunk that awful feeling. And so he gets it gets in there. They do the rate and then some dude runs so he's got to chase him. So he's doing a foot chase for a long time. And he finally gets the guy tack. Them. He flips the guy over and vomits all over. It's one of my I'm telling you, it's what I was like, yes, of course, that when you see cop movies or something like that. And someone is drinking and they get completely loaded and the next day. They're running around like, it's okay. There's no after-effects. I thought that was like, yes. Of course, he's gonna follow it on this guy. I guess he knocked the guy out and the guy wakes up you puke. Like, that's that's a nice touch. That's a nice little detail when they're nice job Frankenheimer. So okay. Aubrey Hepburn Audrey Hepburn was was wonderful actress, let's give away another set of the seven movie collection. Listen closely, everybody first person through who can answer this question.

"Now, Audrey Hepburn who wrote the introduction to your biography says that she was so nervous about dancing with a stare. She actually. Lost her breakfast. She she she she threw up the morning of the first performance together. We aware of how nervous she was. Yes. It. It is terrifying to to work with Fred Astaire, particularly if you're a dancer as Audrey Hepburn is was a very trained dancer, so Fred Astaire was everyone's idle, and and suddenly she's thrust into being his equal. Of course. It's terrifying. For and was he very gentle, very helpful very he'd been through this with other people that were equally terrified of working with him. So what he'd loved Audrey as everyone did another movie? I want to ask you about is on the town with three guys on leave in New York. And this some of this numbers are actually shot in the streets of New York, which you've pointed out this. This isn't the first time that production numbers were shot on location, but it was still unusual. In fact, I think you had to fight to shoot the movie in New York instead of on the set. That is right. Yes. We had to fight very hard. We didn't shoot as much as we wanted to shoot a New York, but we did get a bit of the movie. What were you up against in New York since the city was probably not used to movies being shot on the streets. No. The the city was not used to it. And certainly wasn't used to Frank Sinatra in a sailor suit singing on the street. So we had problems of crowd control or hiding a camera or or trying to get the shot without the people realizing what was going on or we had to use many different ways of of getting it done. And this is the actual city of New York was very helpful to us. They wanted the picture to be photographed on streets. But just to think of traffic and noise and on lookers staring at him and staring at the cameras are hearing, the playback and all of that caused great difficulties. Now, the three leads three male leads Frank Sinatra, Gene, Kelly and Joe's mansion. Yeah. And he apparently was afraid of heights, and he was terrified of heights and where was the production number on top of the building. Well, there were several there were several one on top of the building. But it turned out. He was even afraid when he when we got to New York to shoot he said can my room beyond the ground floor. I don't even wanna be one floor up. He was absolutely. Thrown into a catatonic state at height and. There was nothing for it. But to try to get it done. And I must say that he was extremely brave because knowing what kind of fear he had he he managed to go and stand up on a roof high and in New York, and and sing and move and not and not show his fear. Whereas when we would go to the roof to be to do the scene he would actually ride in the elevator on his hands and knees. It sounds funny. But it's terrifying. Somebody who has kind of phobia is in a terrible, sweat and that he was able to overcome. It is a tremendous courage. Did you know, did you know that he was afraid of heights when you cannot when we when I cast him never occurred to me. No when we didn't none of us were aware of it till we got on the plane and wanted to come to New York, I didn't fly with him. So I don't know what he was like in an aeroplane. But certainly when he got to New York he said, I can't go on. Up in the elevator. But he did we must have had a sinking feeling in your stomach when you had the production numbers plans already. Yes. Well, we did with best. We can we we sometimes put gills munching between Sinatra and Kelly. So he would feel somewhat supported by them in these high spots. The whole sequence wasn't done up on the rooftops. Some of it was done in central park and Rockfeller center and Fifth Avenue and Chinatown little Italy all over New York. The Brooklyn navy yard. They're all kinds of places where he wasn't in mortal fear, how does Sinatra and Kelly get along they got along great. They were great friends from from before that we had done. This was the third picture that Kelly Sinatra and I had worked on together. So they were great buddies and remained. So until Jean died. But Sinatra was hard to work with right? I wouldn't categorize him as hard to work with. He was very willing to do what you wanted him to do. He just had certain feelings of he wanted to go to lunch when he went to lunch or he. He wanted to not rehearse much of perhaps we would but he managed to. Force himself to do what we wanted, gene. Hell was terrific because he admired, gene so much. So it was wasn't all that hard. Film director Stanley Donen recorded in nineteen ninety six. He died last week at the age of ninety four coming up. We remember a legendary obituary writer who celebrated ordinary men and women he himself was anything. But ordinary I'm Dave Davies this is fresh.

More Rafa from CBS Sunday morning has a great new podcast mo- Bidu Aries, and we've got him here on talking tech to tell you all about it. I'm Jefferson Graham, let's just jump in and hear from oh, I'm a long time fan reader of of the chew Aries. And you know, any good OBE, it writer will tell you that a good. Oh, but it's really about the life of person of person rather than the death of a person on CBS Sunday morning. I've always loved profiling people, and it occurred to me that there were a lot of great people from the pass it didn't get a proper sendoff and some that didn't get an e sendoff at all. And so that this would would be the the right vehicle. I guess as cold award is at is to to to profile the subjects that are interesting to me, you know, and and like I said there's a lot to choose from beyond von meter in TV brothers. You're doing Sammy Davis in who else? Else meander falls because when they died out forty thousand years ago, there was no opet at least not one that we could find now there might be a stone tablet somewhere in the Levant where they were given you know, sort of a proper sendoff, but I don't I don't think so we couldn't find anything in our own search in the CBS archives are in Lexis Nexis, which I think people still use. So this was this was important for us to do next season. This is something that I've always been interested in. The black congressman of reconstruction, which I know sounds like a funk band, but it's his period right after the civil war when there are a number of African American men, most of whom had been slaves who end up serving in the United States Congress. So it's those little pockets that are that are interesting to me as well as well as people like Audrey Hepburn Sammy Davis junior who we hopefully all love and remember. But are I think are due for sort of a new a reevaluation in you're still doing Sunday morning at the same time? Absolutely. I have a lot of stories in the works. They're going off tomorrow to go profile Angie Dickinson, which I'm really excited about. So I was watching old policewoman episodes last night. And I highly recommend getting your hands on a policewoman DVD. Yes, they still sell those DVD's that is an listening to the DVD commentary. It is I don't listen to enough DVD commentaries in his hilarious listening to her. Reminisce about the show. What what will the episode be next week the third one the one that's releasing this Thursday is forgotten forerunners which may be on ongoing thing. I do the years have collected names of people who I call sort of the pioneers before the pioneers. So there's a woman named Elizabeth Jennings. An African American woman who almost exactly a hundred years before Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks was was was was asked to the sat down on that on that boss, excuse me, among Gumri, Alabama, Elizabeth Jennings in New York was kicked off of a streetcar. And she ended up suing the railroad company that owned that streetcar and she won and this is before the civil war, and it led to the integration of New York's transportation system, and I mean, it's a remarkable achievement. And it's almost equally remarkable that we don't know her name. So this the episode this Thursday is about her about the African American man who played major league baseball.
