"Therefore left because we have to create our own like no the the main great directors america all been extremely patriotic. I mean look at like Billy wilder and cool. I mean these people came to the united states as immigrants. They were super patriotic. And so it's like no. We need to just really own all of that. So what does that mean in practice. So if we've got very rich people listening to this show. If you've got people who who actually have a background in culture in the arts have gone to the schools. What is what is the the f-. I'm gonna use a socialist term. What is the five year plan to win back the culture. Where does it begin them. It has to begin with the funding. Because you look at the left and you look at how much money they set on fire on things that move the move the needle this big. But there's so much of it that it's an over collective wyoming yet. So we need to do is i pitched sit down and talk to they understand it but i'm like hey you're putting an x. Amount of money to a political campaign per year. If you're a big republican donor your money on fire whether they win or lose. You're not getting it back. There's a reason people do that. I understand that but if you put half or the same amount of money into a film production company relodge etc or an independent news organization or whatever you wanna do You're not only you know you're probably gonna get your money back and you're you're you're moving the culture forever. The movie lives forever. it's not just one campaign season long it lasts forever and it has a huge impact. And guess what it's an investment it's not a donation you'll like. That's the whole reason that i'm so careful about how we do. Have a successful business. Times these right wing Creators will will will raise a bunch of money. they'll crowdfunding others put it out for free. I understand why they do that. There's a very specific reason why they have to do that. And it's a legal issue but we have to be able to make Content that makes a profit because otherwise it's not an industry. No one's going to invest in it over and over again. We have to make these a. And that's what we are we're entrepreneurs we should be able to do this. And so that's why. I'm so dedicated to making this a good business idea because then people really understand it. And they're they're willing to let me take risks if i can explain i might have some wacky ideas and like mom and dad. Republican donor may not get it like off the bat but like trust me and this is going to be an effective company. So we'll look and say. I wish i'd put some money into the plot against the president. A happy investor. Now watch the movie. Pat p movie dot com. Check out. One am dc produce dot com. That's so production company that's one. Am product common. Lastly on twitter.

I want to try to cover as much ground as possible. Because you know. I'm easily board but But i also want to give you But i have sort of subdivided in terms of you know just overall kind of progressions in in in casting and production and post production. I wanted to start. I I've always found your writing appealing personally. in the same way that i always love bill goldman's and and the reason for that is you're a decidedly serious person who is actually writing comedies about a dramatic ventures that have real stakes and end the example. That i have is like butch and sundance where they're debating the different ways that the super policy might kill them when he says they could go for position they can start a rockslide. That could get us that way. What else could they do. I'm treating the next line. But it's a could surrender of albion account on that. Tell me about and that was a occurred to me on social network that that you were that you were doing this thing that the the writing the the storytelling was extensively Comic in in. And i don't mean that in a derogatory lightweight sense It was wildly entertaining in talking about things. That were you know. truly dramatic and is not a is that something that you're conscious of or am my of of disappeared on my own. It's something that i'm conscious of and by the way bill goldman mentor me. Beginning from mike early twenties you know he passed away a few years ago. You know. we're very close. He was teaching me before we met with his with a screenplay with A nonfiction and then he a red by i play which was a few good men and he saw something in me. And if you want to teach me how to write screenplays but yes. I always think first of all if you can tell serious story. Funny you're you're doing yourself a big favor. Part of it might just come from an insecurity. Maybe a healthy insecurity of a comedy drama. I am not good enough at Either events do only one of them commit something pitches while or their other. I mean obviously goldman is one but are there other Heroes personal screenwriting heroes at. You can point to in sort of say this is. This is something off from them or their work. This is something that you know. Certainly tchaikovsky the answer is our number screenwriters in patty tchaikovsky For a host of reasons.

"Until she was at least in her fifties, Louis B. Mayer fell in love with her and put her in all kinds of movies for MGM was as an older kind of interesting character actors. Very funny. She's terrific ly funny in this and that she looks Jean Harlow up and down and says that you got nothing to worry about, kid, you know, and what I love is I've worked with some dumb people. Just not right. You know what I mean? Not right. Even though it was in broadcasting in newsrooms, not bright, and when they say to me something like I was reading a book. I always stop like Marie Dressler and do that double take it. We didn't book because you just don't expect it from people who are incredibly ah. Dump. So anyway, so to add that anyway, so that director hello, That director is George Cukor and George Cukor. It was the most amazing director. He could do literate films, you know, beautiful, illiterate films like the first little women and that wonderful Joan Crawford movie People are so stupid that look, Joan Crawford is only Mommy. Dearest. Just check out. George Cuba is a woman's face. Brilliant Joan Crawford. Gas light a double life, Uh, Adam's rib stars born one Judy Garland should have got the Oscar for my fair lady. I mean, this was a big, literate, smart director, and I just love him. You know, there's so many. We're not gonna be able to mention tonight. You know, we talked about Billy Wilder and William Wyler and a number of other ones last week, but Howard Hawks and David Lean and Ah about Let's go toe foot like parade like a job of teaching new kids the routines. Well, gee, Mr Can that'll be swell Job's yours, Francis. A stone is your new assistant? Again. All right. Mr. Are you watching from over there when I go places. Another good gal gone wrong. This is Busby Berkeley. Describe it for me. Okay, well, Busby Berkeley put like parade I put in bus people because, even though sometimes he co directed, and he did all the choreography a director for movies, he added, so much to the history of cinema. First of all, remember the idea of pre code That means things could be really sexy, really nasty and you get the camera going between women's legs and all the crazy stuff that buzz be Brookly came up with when he was in World War. Busby Berkeley was A guy who did all kinds of just outrageous leak. Clyde Kaleidoscope creations. Hey, did all of Esther Williams is. You know, he almost killed because all they wanted to do was get the shop so he would take take away up in the sky. He did the Berkeley top top shot, which is still used today. Well, he'd go way to the top and pull out the ceiling and make sure you get all these women with their legs. And he was just amazing. He started out organizing military parades in World War one. And he just got obsessed with the magic and that he could do in musicals, his imagination. I always wondered what drug was He on? So I really did investigations. It's kind of like Salvador Dali. You know, you look at these things and ego. What were they smoking? A drop in, but nothing. They just had it in their minds. It's fascinating. Now. The next film I loved and I want you to describe it. Midnight in Paris, Would you read it? You know, it's it's like 400 pages long and I'm just looking just for you know, just in opinion. My opinion is I hate it and read it. It's bad. I'll hate it because I hate bad writing. If it's good, I'll be envious and hate it all. The more you don't want the opinion of another writer, you know what? I don't know what it is. It's just I'm having a hard time you know, trusting somebody to evaluate it. Writers are competitive. Not going to be competitive with you you to self of facing is not manly. You're a writer declare yourself the best writer, but you're not as long as I'm around unless you want. Put the gloves on settling. You know Woody Allen is such a fast, interesting one with dialogue. Of course, he's a writer, of course, is to stand up. That's how we began. And he's just marvellous with dialogue was also characters. He's also doesn't right down to the audience. You know, like, Hitchcock said. It wasn't about the gun of the knife. But the anticipation of the end of the night. Will Allen at Woody Allen believes if you never write Down to the audience. If you're going to mention you know if you're going to mention someone, Bray out like good treat Steiner. You know when raw you're going to mention it, you're not going to talk down to the audience. So in midnight in Paris is this beautiful movie? I watched it at least twice a year where this guy goes to Paris, and he ends up in the Bella pock. He ends up going back in time in Paris. It's a beautiful film Midnight in Paris Blue Jasmine. Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Hammond sister Sandy Hall. I mean, this guy Woody Allen. Yes, he misses he has hits and he has, Mrs. But boy when the hits a good they are so good. And John, you love radio like ideo, And there is a wonderful movie that he did called radio days about the golden age of radio loved it. Yeah, it's a beautiful films. Now. The next one takes us. Away from Paris takes us away from the footlights. It takes us away from just dinner. Everything. Yeah, You can't be further away than this movie. All right, So tell me Well, let's hear the sound of 2000 won the space Odyssey..

"I loved it. Go ahead. Yeah, well, you know, it doesn't need really language because it's the visuals are so remarkable in any David Lean's film, even the smaller ones beautiful. What he does is he takes in this film and Lawrence of Arabia Bridge under with a quiet passage to India. He's David Lee takes You know, he was a cinematographer. You know, it's very interesting with ease Doctor directors, they come from different fields. You know some of cinematographers like George Stevens. Semi editors like Robert Wise, you know writers like Joseph Mankiewicz Ah, Billy Wilder. They come from different fields. Spielberg made his own films when he was a kid, you know, so he was an early filmmakers, so everybody comes at it differently. You know, Vincent Minnelli did set decoration for playing. You know, everybody comes out. I will. David Lean was this great cinematographer became a great director on what he would do is he would take and Spielberg does this in shameless list, you would take Big subjects like Chicago, and then he would nail them down. So they became extremely personal. We were always personally involved while having the sweeping saga. It's uh it's a sensational kind of combination and lead. Does it better than anybody that at the same time, he could do a small romance, So I feel like summertime. About the yearning of a woman the first time she ever sees Venice. Oh, I'm telling you, this is a great film It is and in the films are just amazing now are like the music. Now Wait the next film we're doing. I have to tell you. I went to see it with my mother. My mother roared with laughter absolutely adored this film. Let's hear the sound. Me tell you about my client, Michael Dorsey. He was a fine actor. Maybe a great actor. For every role he wanted. There was a reason why it wasn't right. Sorry You're too tall. I could be shorter now. I can use you too short. So I can be taller, too Moody next to old stubborn too much trouble to tough.

It built a civil rights museum on a lynching memorial, attracting headlines across the nation spotlight on Montgomery. When we began our work, we bought this building, but we didn't know it was the site of a former warehouse were enslaved People were held. No one had actually documented the primacy of slavery in this community. Winter Berlin You can't really go 100 meters without saying markers and stones have been placed next to the homes of Jewish families that were abducted. German seemed to want to because of the Holocaust Memorial. They were intent on changing The narrative. They didn't want to be thought of his Nazis and fascists forever. And I just don't think we've created cultural spaces in this country that motivate people to say never again to this history of enslavement and lynching and segregation in the absence of that commitment. I think he's left us vulnerable. And not only do we not do that we actually romanticize this era. When we tell stories about how glorious and wonderful the architects and defenders of slavery are In Alabama Confederate Memorial Day is a state holiday. Jefferson Davis birthday is a state holiday. We do not have Martin's The King Day in Alabama. We have Martin with the King slash Robert E.

Love the apartment at. One Best Picture Shirley Shirley Maclean was robbed I love everything Jack Lemmon does every and actually those are my two favorites. My favorite scenes I know. We're supposed to do only one, but I did to here I love the office party scene. The was a Christmas party rate. Yes I. Love The Jack Lemmon, surely cleaning that and I also love the opening. Where they wake him up. Yeah, that's where you kind of find that what he does. He pens out his house and I. Just Jack Lemmon so-so funny in those scenes. He's so great Frederick.

My number nine is super bad. My favorite scene Super Bad Emma Stone's introduction. Of course it is though, but I'll do. I'll jokes aside I probably if we ever do this list again somehow I probably would. More, watching super bad and washing the apartment would probably switch that up for me because I think, the apartment is obviously a one best picture from front to back. It's a great film. I think with super. Bad anything with Seth. Rogan for me and Bill Hader and make Lovin I. don't I'm not entertained by that? At all I think the stuff in the parking. Lot is a little rough for me.

And comparing OPPO Kahane's. Aladdin that he looks like Aladdin. It's Hilarious I think all that stuff. The whole scene is hilarious. Number Eight is forty year old virgin. I am so grateful for the forty year over. Because of this, we did not succeed. We would not have nine as of the office. So because of that gets the number eight slot slot alone. The movies just from beginning hilarious from beginning to end favorite scene in that movie is the first poker game where he compares boobs to sandbags. and. I think it's hilarious.

Hollywood it's such a fun and exciting. Look at those years. Impact of the switch from silent to sound but also the industry as a whole but at the time. And you can even apply motivates now but for anybody who loves soir. It's got those elements and there's a whole bunch of twists. If you're into suspense. If you enjoy drama there's just really bright performance as well. It's so obviously a five star film for reasons that we've discussed at length just a a perfect film in every way it's a film that is has that Gothic visual aesthetic that makes film so exciting kid actually exciting. But it's done with an adult story that gives the film complex emotional core. It is the perfect blend of film that is pure entertainment whilst also being extremely psychologically stimulating and meaningful. Thank you so much for joining us.

Which well-known man did Gloria Swanson have a three year love affair with until she discovered he had pilfered thousands from hurrying production company? I got what you asked me that question at. Also Joseph P Kennedy question is what was the league between Joseph Kennedy at Glorious Swanson in Films Well. He became power of attorney of Production. Company had complete control over the finances and Korea. He commissioned Queen Kelly and Got Eric von Stroheim to direct it that went horribly over budget then glorious wants and found out that he had been taking thousands of thousands of dollars and thinking the money into Queen Kelly and even to things like gifts for her and so he left her with lots of debt and the ironic pot while she'd originally met him because he was a an esteemed businessman who is going to help solve some of their cash flow problems but yeah he ended up leaving with like half a million dollars in debt. I hope that some he had bought a new car and build it to what was Gloria Swanson's production company at the time because in nineteen twenty seven. She had told her on production company and that she confronted him about this at dinner that they were having with some guests and he got up and walked out never contacted her.

I think in the sense and this film is to be in Washi- is the film's villain but for me she's not a villain signing senses say it will. G. Robinson key Lago will also goes in touch of evil and while she perpetrates the criminal act at the end of the film is also the fact that she's an unfortunate loser in many ways she shares similarities in that. It's a woman whose past her prime who is viewed as someone who no longer has any sexual liability. Who's throwing herself at a man that doesn't want her finds her repulsive but also it's a woman who's psychologically attached to her past and is living in a state of deluded nostalgia for tied. Professor of Film Studies. Lucy Fisher. I really liked this. She compares normal to a vampire describing her as technically alive yet. Meyde in the state of suspended animation. She also describes her final. Walk down the staircase as direct and threatening advance on the audience. I think normal is an extreme case of someone who believes that the expensive self and not without reason. I mean Demille Max even normally give us plenty of reasons to believe in her star power. I LOVE THE LINE. Max says to Joe About Norma. It was a Maharaj came all the way from Hyderabad to get one of her stockings later. He strangled himself with it. We know the human brain is outfitted with mechanisms that protect us from facing certain truths that Mike calls us to unravel and certainly if no more would have face reality. After the hot she rose to in her youth. She'd have breakdown so she doesn't see the rats in the poll will the cobwebs in the corner. She doesn't think about the fact that the phone isn't ringing anymore. She's in a self protective. State of denial joys ascribes beautifully when he says she was sleep walking along the giddy heights of lost career plane crazy when it came to that one subject. Her celluloid self the Great Norma Desmond how could she breath in that house so crowded with Norma Desmond more desperate and still more normal another thing about the way that Gloria reacts to not getting her way is that she internalizes that anger and that is something? That's more true of women than men. Just biologically so it's very astute riding that Norma makes a suicide attempt and in uses it to manipulate joey into retaining but the suicide attempt in this case isn't for sure this is someone who's extremely depressed and vulnerable. Hello Michelle drink on that basis loaded. I covered it with the two pages in Oxford. Thank you but I wouldn't bother what's wrong with it. It's from hunger. Nothing lead. What was just a rehash of something that wasn't very good to begin with. I'm sure you'll be glad to meet Mr Gillis. He wrote it. This is Kramer. Name is Schaefer Betty Schaefer Right. Now I wish I could crawl in a hole and pull it in after me if I could be of any help. I'm sorry Mr Dealers but I just didn't think it was any good. I found it flat and trite. Exactly what kind of material you recommend James Joyce Dostoevsky. I just think a picture should say a little tough thing. One of the message kids just a story won't do it turned down gone with the wind. Now that was me I said who wants to see a civil war picture. It's very very hard to understand. Norma without having Betty there as the Anti Norma. She throws a very harsh light on. Exactly what normal isn't what's wrong with Norma? And in a way she's also made more pitiable by the introduction of Betty because betty is so easily. Everything Norma just isn't. Betty is young she's attractive. She's rational she's witty. She asserted herself without being pushing. She's ambitious without being a NAS Est. She doesn't care about being famous or in the spotlight. While norma smells of aged would and waste. Betty smells like freshly laundered linen handkerchiefs. Which is just about the weirdest compliment of ever heard of man. Give a woman in a movie. Jerry sets all the terms in the relationship with betty constantly leaving hermit conversation to run back to normal. He decides a winning where they'll meet to work on the script even during their last encounter he doesn't leave with Betty when she asked him to unlike. Norma she's the ideal nineteen fifties woman in that. She's totally deferential. To the man she loves and Kohl's none of the shots on top of that. Betty represents creative rebirth. As we've talked about he's excited about the screenplay he's working on with her which is adapted from his own novel. Unlike collaboration with Norma but the principles of both relationships are the same. It's to right as whether as a romantic tension except the experiences are antithetical one is ideal and the other is a nightmare but professionally end person. I I really like that. I think if somebody smelled like freshly laundered linen handkerchiefs. That is actually what. Listen Yeah I. I think it's nice to think handkerchiefs have really gone out of vogue. I don't think I'd want to be with anyone who actually carried a handkerchief the very very all's Yeah I. I found one in like by his bedside table the other day and I was very disturbed by an I questioned him at length about why he had one. You could still buy the chiefs apart from to Putin yet little poker. When you're wearing a suit he must have got given it by somebody at the nursing home then he works out. Hey Miss Desmond.

Welcome home if you go into your chat in Scott of just released off poll on IMDB that somebody had started Film Law violence and just want to give you a few times and you can tell me what you think. Swanson in Sunset Boulevard ranked among certain Colonel delorean 'em Sydney Greenstreet in the Maltese Falcon Barbara Stanwyck in double indemnity Rita Hayworth in the lady from Shanghai it would see Robinson and key Largo Olsen woes in the third man wrote Mitcham. Nada Hunter also Mos in touch of Evil Robert Mitchum in type fear and Bette Davis in what happened to baby Jane so including Swanson. Eleven nine there and about way in this group. Do you think she writes as the greatest? Plastic film lava leads. Who would you put ahead of? Who maybe thinks she's probably ahead of Killagane. So you think that she righted ahead of it would see Robinson. Yeah I find it hard because these these people are really horrible. Near. That's what a few more villainous. Well I I don't know that she's that horrible. I mean that's what I wonder as well and that's why I said that to me. She's not liked it. Would Robinson Lago and she's not like also was in touch of evil. She's not bad evil. Well Robert Mitchum spends nineteen minutes hunting down to children's so that he can kill them both for money. I mean that's not what nor is I'll tell you where she writes it. So Robert Mitchum Nada. The Hunter was the top rated film. Lavi Lem and then Peter Lorient and Ulsan wells in touch of evil. Bette Davis in whatever happened to baby Jane and then also in Third Man. Okay and then kind. Gloria awesome in place so she beat Barbara Stanwick. So that ancient ahead of Robert Mitch. Main type fears was ahead of Sydney greenstreet in the Maltese. Falcon ahead of Barbara Stanwick in double indemnity ahead of Rita Hayworth in lady from Shanghai and ahead of it would see Robinson key lago now. That's interesting and so. This Powell had a total of twenty three names and just taken eleven that I think probably the best examples and Bette Davis after by Jiang and out of those twenty three. She still wreck seat. So that is the top seeks so up during conclusion from this that while I think she is not this kind of ideal representative of the But the greatest public. She was definitely considered a memorable. This is sunset boulevard Los Angeles California about five o'clock in the morning. That's the homicide squad. Complete with the techniques and Newspaperman.

We have to consider the situation that we were in a wild wild was given permission to make. This film is films. In the nineteen forties would never be mistaken Fulbright happy peaches so it was probably very clear while paramount was getting when they green lit this and Dublin deputies the bleakest of one of the best films in similarly voiced over by a man who's in crows of debt. Basan just before it comes which presumably Dawson and the last weekend was this blistering drama about alcoholism. Today ends with Walter Suicide Attempt but double.

So W deputy in the lost weekend with two films that came to fire so while the developed this method of Filming Humid- included sobbing production monitoring. Play was unfinished and adjusting the screenplay during shooting and it's not like he didn't have much of an idea of where the story was going to go. He could've probably told the senses. Exactly where the stories? We're going to go at any given time during filmmaking as he was also the ride. These changes easy enough to make during the shoot and it was this element of privacy that Sunset Boulevard in the writing the taste screenings and as you said was produced at the nine. A can of beans While so I think while the probably This film being based on the industry which was made would probably have a of interested sets of is on another thing that you have to think about is way. America was at this time. Because we're moving forward into the fifties when McCarthyism Cold War tensions with an ushering this new era of social conservatism. You know this is the time we get the image of the eye burned. Woman with perfectly coiffed. Heya fussing reverse stove. The husband comes home from work in a suit and tie and Hollywood had a very very active publicity machine worked overtime to give the impression that the industry was a squeaky clean paragon of wholesome American values. You know this was the time of stars like Shelly Temple Engineer. Golly Doris Day we have scripted interviews with actors and actresses where I wrote sang the loveliest things everything was so nice and so we prim and proper had Christmas at home with during cruel fed with her two little children that will in beautiful button dot little dresses and sunset. Boulevard is pretty audacious film given that. That was the message that Hollywood was investing. So much money in sending out near Waldo makes this movie that paints you know just just cesspool of moral corruptibility a town of great mystery and great intrigue and that's part of the reason food the film successes. It's some it's it's tabloid behind the scenes reputation. You hear about things in the news. I mean even to the point of putting hit a home in the film as she was also columnist for the Los Angeles Times at the time and she had readership of that thirty five million in the nineteen forties. So she was very well known in that city in that industry and outside of it and I love the sunset boulevard by putting her in the movie having might that bid Saad phone call it kind of owns the idea that this was an expose. Yeah and I think Was very clever with actually involving so many. Hollywood heavyweights into the film. Actually making them part of the process so that there wasn't going to be. He had a lot of support is on the ground you know inside the industry. Who will advocate for the film because they were part of it? Was there any history between wilder and demille? I know there was history between Swanson Indigo and swatted him. Bump straight home. There was in terms of they liked each other. Apparently when Waldo Shot Sissel be the mill saints? And he's really he goes beyond a cameo. He's he's a supporting character. He has lines of dialogue and he has to. He's the only one in the film who actually Suri's any real sympathy and won't for Norma and for her predicament. While at the same time balancing that by saying make sources lady game essentially and apparently when they shot their scenes while to again and to me it was like look. I'm sorry I didn't do that very well. And they liked each other. They respected each other. I think Waldo probably didn't particularly loved emeals films and wasn't really interested in making those sorts of films in different look for every Norma Desmond in sunset. Boulevard is Cecil B Demille so someone who has retained success over the years and we see that in the movie by focusing on one story in one story EILLY and it's reflected in many true stories of Hollywood obviously United Mary Pickford Dwi Griffin some of the others. But it's also not representative of older true stories. The focus of the movie is on Joe. And Norma and I are to people who've been corrupted by it they're psychopathology. Their problems can't be separated from their environment. Joe Got into Hollywood with big dreams. You always wanted a poll. He ends up in one. Nomar is stopped and driven to murder and madness both victims of their careers and of their ambition with them with Joel Normal. I think Waldo suggests that success by any means however degrading or immoral is rewarded and that the industry not only encourages but engenders that morality. And it's fantasy that both would've probably found happiness in any other industry. Norma cont get past what she used to be because the hot was the highest was so high the joys was so bountiful and Joe can't help but look at Norma and wonder what can she do to help me. How can I exploited her? Just a couple of examples of moments in the film that are kind of indictments on Hollywood. So Joe visits show drake who he described as good producer at paramount. Who has a set of ulcers to prove it? Which would suggest that to be a good person in this industry? You pay you pay the price in terms of you know your health. I love the line actresses so young they still believed the guys in the costing offices that line predates Weinstein by fifty years. Which is troubling. There are plenty of stories out now actresses. Have I got rolls back then? John Cruel but I think he is one of them isn't she just had that reputation that he Davis said she slept away to the top ensuring suddenly setting the slate malate of the middle. That's true also. I love the show right pretty much pitched elites that run forty five years old at. That's funny yeah. That is true. I didn't think of that Betty at one point says to Joe. I'd always heard you had some talent and Jerry says that was last year this year. I'm trying to a living. That's one of my favorite quotes in the field. Yeah so you know this suggests. Hollywood does not nurtured talent as much as it invests in derivative work with proven return on investment and even the scene. Demille MIL finds out. The reason. Paramount has been coaling. Nomadic asked to rent her car pro for being crosby film is an example of just how insensitive and tone death the industry can be. It's ironic because they went out of that way to rent that cough or sunset boulevard as well two in today's dollars that was with some ridiculous money. Three hundred softening thousand dollars that car that I rented of them were available in the United States. And I mean that phone call and that that discovery that that's why they're ringing. It's not even intentionally cruel notoriety. Finally she'd returned to the coal but even then she would have been heartbroken even when the industry isn't trying it can be a nasty industry. Hit me how I did because I need you. I need you is. I've never needed to walk. Look like in my head. Leave my face look under my eyes. How can I go back to work? I'm wasting land of this tournament through last week. Gloria Swanson Norma. I asked a question about whether or not you believe. She's a precursor to the monstrous feminine. That would be more pointedly exploited in six days and the idea that maybe she's a little bit of Grande Dame Gonul type character before. Bette Davis hit the apex of that with whatever happened to baby Jane. Yeah I think Probably accurate I don't think she's an example of that but she's definitely a previous to that. So you can take things from glorious Washington's Portrayal of Norma Desmond and apply them to something like what happened.

"Silence Greenstone. Mary Pickford once said it would've been more logical if silent pitches grown out of the toll keys instead of the other way around a sentiment by many historians in the essence sound my brought cinema to mainstream audiences but it also made it easier for screenwriters to be lazy with exposition dialogue to explain plot ambient noise to set tarn score to elicit immediate emotional responses for many the silent film period that began in nineteen thirteen and gave rise to films that. Griffith's intolerance drives the passion of and sunrise remained unmatched in terms of cinematic storytelling. But when sound technology arrived in. Nineteen Twenty Seven Silent Film Soon. Became curious from a bygone age. Screen stars scrambled to adapt to the new industry. Standard some transitioned. Many did not over the next twenty years moves exploded into the global market making kings out of its players. A time known as the Golden Age of Hollywood australian-born Screenwriter Billy Waldo was one such player he emigrated to the US. In nineteen thirty four fleeing Nazi occupation with writing partner Charles Bracket. He quickly made a name for himself. Pending a series of well received films for heavyweight directors. Like Howard Hawks. While the set his mind to directing his own work he made a series of films in the early forties including double indemnity. The lost weekend in foreign affair which was celebrated for their doc wit and social wins in nineteen forty eight waldron bracket set to work writing their next film a comedy about a once famous silent star struggling to revive her career but the project stagnated they had an idea but noise story and to Donald National Junior. An editorial way such a life magazine. He suggested pairing tragic style with a down on his luck rider paving the way for the Macabre Love Triangle that would ultimately become the central conflict of the narrative. What evolved was a film not just four Hollywood but about it. A gothic expose framed around a toxic relationship between a downtrodden screenwriter. An aging screen star planning her implausible. Comeback a kind of only in Hollywood tale set against a town famous for bright lights and manufactured. Dreams accounts vary as to how glorious once came to be Norma Desmond while the wanted a real staff from the silent agent considered May West nor sheera. Mary Pickford Pola Negri for George Kirk through Swanson's name into the ring. While the would later claim he considered nobody else early versions of his screenplay seemed to corroborate. This still many actresses tended down out of hand. Norma Desmond might have been fascinating. But she was a grotesque and in an industry where a woman's desireability was hurriedly currency while the didn't have actresses breaking down his door. Swanson was a major star in the twenty s but struggled to make the transition into talking films. She moved to New York City in the thirties where she received steady work in radio and on stage when asked to addition for sunset. She baulked. What the Hell do you have me do a test for? She spat walder over the fine. You want to see if I'm alive. D George Kuka talked her into testing recalling. Swanson's reading years later while knew we had something special. Now we had a picture he said for the pot of Joe Gillis Montgomery clift was hired a rising star with piercing blue eyes. He'd recently made a splash. William Wallace. The heiress two weeks before principal photography. He backed out. He told while that he didn't feel he could be convincing. Making love toolman twice his age. It was an excuse to give given that clift. Lighten him of sexual was at the time involved with the woman. Sixteen years his sena singer Libby Holman while it was in a bind gene. Kelly was unavailable Fred. Macmurray turned him down flat finally came upon contract player. William Holden a man of Swazi good looks and robust masculine energy. Holden's career began promisingly when in nineteen thirty nine. He won the lead role in golden boy but quickly fizzled. Once the studio cost generic heartthrobs in a series of forgettable films. He left Hollywood in nineteen forty to serve world war. Two and by nineteen forty nine was in the process of reestablishing his career. He eagerly accepted the potty joy for off cliffs sixty thousand dollars salary hold them was older than clift and Waldo was concerned agent. Look young enough next to Swanson. He suggested aging Swanson with makeup and lighting but she refused arguing that normal would never let herself become Hackett instead. His production team focused on shaving few years of holding when the cameras began rolling on. Eighteenth nineteen forty nine. Only two thirds of the script had been written. Nobody not even wild. Add a clear idea of how you ended up in the poll while would shoot during the day then he and bracket would continue writing at night the atmosphere on set was one of lively camaraderie while the deliberately left us on our own. Swanson said made us dig into ourselves knowing full. Well that such a script about Hollywood's excesses was bound to give the people acting in healthy doubts about the material and themselves in a rare example of Life Not Imitating Art Swanson and Holden. Got Along. Well he was brilliant now picture. I adored him she would later reflect but according to Ulsan he plays Betty Schaefer. It was Swanson herself. He works the hottest. Gloria believed in the film more than anyone else. She later amended to emphasize the film. Look behind the curtain feel while they used actual Hollywood locations and pepita movie with industry insiders bid pots including seats will be held buster Keaton and hedda Hopper Columnists Luella. Possums was also offered apart but she refused to anyway. Neither set it for fame. Driver was involved. Heather would later. Amok Lou Waller and I've been offered a fistful of money to appear on radio and in pictures together. I always except she always declines appeared in sunset boulevard and for months. She didn't mention the picture. All the name of its time her column for the role of Max Norma Desmond Loyal Butler and former husband director. While the cost Eric Von Stroheim preeminent silent film director. He'd worked with Swanson Clean. Kelly in thousand nine hundred twenty nine a silent film shutdown up destroy perfectionism sort massively over budget. It was never released. The states. The small section of showing in the movie screening seen in Sunset Boulevard reportedly at storylines request was the first time American audiences quarter glimpse of this film which is now regarded as a classic while the new the bras at paramount would object to a screenplay that was essentially a poison pen letter at their industry so to keep them at bay. He told his film was an adaptation of a story. The can of beans luckily while the carried enough clout with studios not to be carefully watched. The paramount wasn't his only problem in nineteen forty-nine old screenplays required submission approval from head of the Production Code Joseph Breen Walden McConnell dynamic between Joe and normal would ruffle the census feathers so he sent three pages in drips and drabs hoping to dull. The overall effect of the material brain wasn't so easily misled in a letter paramount. He remarked the most recent of this material. Seems to indicate the introduction of sex. Ed Between Gillis Norma Desmond which was not present in the earlier material. Whether or not the story will carry a sex affair we cannot say however it seems to us at this point. There is no indication of a voice for Morality by which sex fare would be condemned nor does there appear to be compensating. Moral values for the sin luckily for while the production office had no problem with putting devious men from excuse women and homosexuals on the screen. As long as they were dead by the final frame like so many before him wilder would appease the senses with a violent nihilistic ending the irony was lost on a filmmaker famous for his misanthropic wit shooting wrapped in mid June the delayed release and mixed reception of sunset. Boulevard is calamitous production itself but more on that later what I can tell you is that like Moose. Masterpieces took time for the film to rise. Above its contemporaries as a moss destroy in cinematic invention after the film Waldron Brockett potted ways ending a twelve year collaboration on a high while we continue to thrive in. Hollywood helming classics like Sabrina. Some like it hot. In the apartment William Holden became a household name and appeared in three milwall the films but sunset boulevard lasting legacy is the drowning conviction of its troubled star brought to life with his merrick. Intensity by glorious Wanson Swanson may have outlived Holden but not the shadow of Norma Desmond. Funny Intelligent and soft spoken with an interest. In writing sculpting and Health Foods Swanson was by most accounts the opposite of Norma Desmond after making.

Bill Hader on Barry | Interview

"Double sized episode of the big picture. This is a conversation show with filmmakers, and we're talking to a few of them today. The first of which you may have heard of his name is Bill hater he is. Of course, the creator the writer producer, and sometime director of a little show called Barry show on HBO that we love here at the wringer. I talked to Bill about making Barry, but more specifically just about movies because men this guy knows a lot about film, and he's really fun to talk to you. He put me on to a bunch of movies. I think if you're interested in the wider world of movies in the history of the medium, you'll enjoy this chat. And then right after that, we're going to have another interview with two people. I really admire the actress Mary Kay place who you may recall from things like the big chill. She was an EMMY winner in the seventies. She's been steadily working as an actress for the last forty years and the critic turned filmmaker and documentarian Ken Jones. Kent's first film as a narrative film maker is called Diane and Mary Kay. The star of that movie, and it's a really beautiful intimate complex portrait of a person nearing the end of their life. And how things change around them as they approach that stage. So please stick around after Bill to listen to that one. But before that, let's go right to Bill Hader. Joined by actor writer, director producer all kinds of stuff ill hater, hey, buddy. How are you? I'm doing good. So bill. This is a show where we talk about movies, and you made a TV show, but you are like the all-time movie buff. Yeah. And so I wanna talk about berry as kind of a filmmaking property. What do you think? Yeah. It'd be great now. Most people kind of friends who were like, it's kinda just, you know, a four hour movie that we've broken up into eight is that how you can send it as like. Well, the way we write it. I had never written in a in a traditional TD writing room writer's room before the only one had really been in outside of Santa live of south park. And finally kind of knew what those guys did. And it was kind of like their their shows have, you know, a three acts, and so you were kind kinda just it was never really written in order. It was kind of. We know this needs to happen. Then at some point this happens, and then towards the end, maybe this happens, and then you're kind of finding scenes at connect these things, and then it all starts changing. So I kind of did that. But with with eight episodes, I would just put one two to four one through eight up on the bore whiteboard. I would just start plotting, and you know, season one it was like, okay. So, you know, end of episode to be really good. If you know, they had this thing for rhyme Addison embarrassed starting to realize, you know, e- seizes father speak in rhyme. Adam's, father speaking, he realizes. Oh, gosh. You know, he didn't you've never seen that side of it before, you know. And then maybe it's good if you know Vaujour's following them that'd be good. You know in the in the, you know, the the way call it his his friends from Chris in those guys military guys they come in around episode. Owed four or five. So question Mark, you know, more friends years, your puzzle PC, and you're just kind of laying it out, but you laid out as a full things. So, you know, by eight it's like, I just know eight forever just had moss versus berry at the end. And we had no idea where that took place or what happened. But I I've felt and we all kind of felt like they should have she should figure it out. You know? So we knew that was at the end of eight at the end of the last episode, but we didn't know how that would happen is that more similar to the way you'd read a movie, I mean, I don't know. I I mean, I everyone has a different way of doing it some people the idea out of outlining is for bowdoin in people. I think because screen play unlike a novel novel can be as long as you want screenplay should be about under twenty pages. And when you're structuring a story for film or. Television. There has to be like structure to it. You know, now that doesn't mean in asked to be kind of like what we do or you know, that kind of Billy wilder thing. Or I, you know, where it was every everything is set a payoff, everything is super clean, and you know, that what by I love that. It's really hard to pull off in. That's why I enjoy that kind of writing. But you know, I mean, I mean, some of the best movies of Hollywood specially in the seventies were really during didn't know where it was going, but they have a structure there. You know, be too great how Ashby movies being there and last detail fron tense purposely last details just kind of a a road movie quest movie quest movie in about these two guys finding their humanity in in and trying to show this guy a good time before he goes to jail in. Kind of forgetting their jobs is in what they've learned military men and all this and an in kind of shedding their the humanity that they have to repress when I put the uniform on and all that, and it's all very emotional. But when you look at it, it's got a really great structure, you know, has a really tight structure now, I don't know if Robert towne took that book, and you know, outlined it in figured it out. But if feels that way, and so sometimes the first draft is like an outline you're kinda like you're writing I've done it both ways we write a draft to something with no outline in it. It's got a lot inspired stuff in it. But it's kind of cranky, you know. Yeah. So then you kind of go over it you show it to a friend in the gonna will head of it there. You know, this would go here what you know in the new you'd try to because you want it to feel kinda we're Ganic. But when you're doing TD showing you got thirty minutes. It's it's kinda hard to do that. Because you have to keep a tight inside frame. It really tight. Yeah. And I'm also just someone I don't like wasting people's time. And so when we got the TV show actually went back and watch TV. But I would I would read short stories was really good. I would want. I would read like Tobias Wolff for Flannery O'Connor any these people and kind of see just pay attention to the structure, you know, in in not that far off the tone of those writers. I feel like to. Yeah. Yeah. Give me and hard to find. As like totally an incredible berry template as far as gets on this incredibly funding in very disturbing at the same time. But you know, trying to understand where the emotions coming from. I think we're Alec Berg, and I worked so well together as I'm kind of all emotion, and he's all logic. And my strong suit is as weak suit in my weeks at his strong suit. Not that he's not. National is he's he's comes up. I think some
