"A huge attributing factor too. What makes how to succeed in business without really trying. So wonderful is what bob fosse brought to to the theatrical version of it and he gets a a a strange credit in the film which i think it's a musical staging by and that is from what i've read because originally on broadway for the excuse me on broadway. The a choreographer was hired because of a particularly enigmatic number and quickly enough it was discovered that that was all he had up his sleeves. And bob fosse was brought in and bob fosse being actually quite generous said. I don't wanna take this credit away from him and kind of stomp on his potential career. So i will take this other lesser credit. But it's bob fosse. That does the interesting choreography. And to your point about editing from what we know about bob. Fosse's films that he actually directs and edits. The editing is out of this world so we almost get this fascinating mixed bag in this film or we get some of those. Bob fosse moves that are taken to a whole different stratosphere when combined with bob fosse's editing so we get the moves but we don't get the editing and so it's just not quite bob fossey but oh my god. Can you imagine if it was. Bob fosse and bar listeners of apparently one of the great numbers which was fully filmed and in the original release Coffee break anybody. Who knows the score for have succeed in business without retrying knows that coffee break is one of the great numbers. It's cut from the movie and it was cut solely for the reason that the premiere at radio city music hall and radio city music hall had very strict standards about time and kind of the last minute. They said david swift. You've got you've got to cut something. And and he. I think incorrectly said to himself in terms of the narrative. I don't need coffee break And none of the principals is involved. You coffee break. So i'm gonna cut it. And then when they release the dvd they were gonna put it back in and the footage was lost. One it's one of the. There's a treasure out there somewhere. Maybe maybe the footage isn't entirely lost. I give anything anything to see. The choreography the fossey brings to coffee break. Because he said elsewhere the two pieces in this show that he was proudest of were coffee break and a secretary and obviously we secretary is not a toy is such a wonderful number in this film. We'll get to that but.

"I've had for years box. Dvd set that celebrates the Chicago Bulls six championships in the nineteen nineties. The title is NBA Dynasty Series Chicago Bulls Real quick takeaways couple takeaways Scottie. Pippen totally underrated. I I mean. I know he's considered a legend and one of the top fifty basketball players all time. But but he's even better than that as far as the goat discussion. Greatest of all time between Jordan and Lebron James. All right I conceded. I think it was a year or so ago that Lebron has probably taken that title. I'm more than willing to be argued that I'm more than willing to be argued wrong as a Chicagoan but one thing is for sure after going through some of these. Dvd's Jordan is so much more fun to watch. I mean he just. He spent so much time doing beautiful things. High up in the air way above Lebron's had would have been so That's just a blast to watch now. You can't this is kind of a sneaky. Pick you can't stream this. Dvd set so. I'll take this occasion as an excuse to mentioned that. Espn's ten part Michael Jordan Doc. The last eight they move that up it was gonNA come out on June nineteenth. Yup the release date is April nineteenth. So obviously I can't wait for that listeners. I can maybe loan you my bulls box set because it isn't streaming but otherwise just look for the last dance this weekend on ESPN. I will be watching it. Yeah I have not seen the set that you are watching but I cannot wait for Sunday night. When the ten part doc starts it's been this mythical thing that's been rumored to be in production or potentially production for some time new house coming out and ESPN wisely bumping that up. I think it's something that a lot of people just like us are going to be watching my number three these fall under the category of blind spots and in this case there is a specific hook to Josh. Though it wasn't by design all explain it's my unofficial slash official. Bruce SURTEES MARATHON. So one day. I realize I'm kind of running out of options in terms of things that are really hooking me on net flicks and I know that there are some things I should get to real cinematic blind spots that have been mentioned on the show over the years that I feel regret about but they just seem heavy. I'm not ready for it yet. I need stuff. That's under two hours. I can knock it out and I needed to be reasonably entertaining but I do still WanNa feel like I'm getting some homework done. I do still want to feel like I've crossed something off my list that I felt for some time that I needed to get to so I went over to Amazon prime. And one of the things that popped up happen to be dirty Harry the first dirty Harry movie with Clint. Eastwood Don Siegel directed and right away. I realized how stylishly shot it was and so after I watched it I looked up who the DP was and I see that. It's Bruce Surtees. I think yeah I know that name. I can't really tell you what else he's done. I don't know much about his history's legacy at all but that is a name I have heard and oh I'll just file that away okay. So what's next? Couple of days later I go back to prime one of the film's POPs up. Lennie the Bob. Fosse directed film about Lenny. Bruce and that really is one for me. I've always been ashamed because I adore. Is You know all that jazz. Fosse's film I like cabaret quite a bit as well and in the TV series Fossey Verdon some of the making of Lenny POPs up in that TV series it. Of course POPs up in all that jazz as well. A lot of cutting to scenes of the fosse alter Ego Joe Gideon cutting the movie. That would become lenny so it was kind of just been a joke for me that I've never watched this film. I decide I'm going to sit. And Watch Lenny and. I'm watching the credits. And whose name POPs up is responsible for the Black and white cinematography. It's Bruce Thirty so then decide okay. Well this is just too convenient too much of a coincidence. We're going to make this happen and I'll give you just a little bit of background on him. Is He a name? That's familiar to you at all Josh. Young familiar with the name. I don't think I would have been able to identify any of his movies though right so he got his start as a camera. Operator working with Don Siegel and especially on Siegel and Clint Eastwood Films in the late. Nineteen sixty so movies like two mules for sister Sarah and Cubans Bluff and then his first role as a cinematographer. As the director of photography was Nineteen. Seventy-one it was the beguiled so that Seagal Directing Eastwood and then play misty for me followed that where he was working with eastward again but this time Eastwood as director that was his debut he died in twenty twelve and if you look at his. Imdb the early two thousands in the nineties were not good to surtees out of maybe twenty. Titles there's not one that really stands out as essential viewing and even at the end of the eighties. The decade closed for surtees with rat boy back to the beach and licensed to drive in the eighties for him was otherwise filled with a lot of eastwood's stuff prior to that so movies like Fire Fox and tight rope and sudden impact even honky. Tonk man his heyday really was the nineteen seventies which brought me to night moves. This is an Arthur Penn. Early Bleak Neo Noir starring Gene Hackman as a former football player turned disillusioned private. I would other type of private. I is there in the seventies and it's all set within the movie business so it's reflexive to in the mode of Altman's the long goodbye and then the one I most recently watched was another Eastwood blindspot.

"Bob Fosse was one of my tick heroes until I saw this many. You're welcome. But I think it's important to understand not just how much Gwen Verdon was a part of his success, and what is still hailed as genius. But forgive me, what a what an utter ASI was. This this kind of behavior that was accepted, and is now been brought to light over these these last few years felt like a conversation. We wanted to be a part of this felt like an opportunity to take this kind of behavior out of the darkness and keep it in the light. And having a coal Fossey. The the one the one child of Bob and Gwen was an enormous resource and assets, she's a producer on the show. She was involved in the smallest things in the largest things from what somebody might be wearing to how we were going to reconstruct these dances with real specificity and authentic and it felt like she was providing a so much insight into Gwynn's life. And I think gave us a lot of confidence to to examine the darkest places because she felt it was necessary. And essential just like we did. Did Gwen Verdon just tolerate too much from Bob Fosse? What I know is the two of them found something each other. They couldn't find anywhere else. Gwen was someone who was a survivor, and she was a fighter too just as ambitious as profoundly talented as Bob was. This was someone when she did a show called new girl in town the late fifties. She took to bed one time. This isn't a Watson book because Bob was being mistreated. And so she in protest stepped out of the show, and they had to bring in four people to play her part for people.

"Com and the listeners and members of Kiwi d. Rainshowers expected to become more isolated overnight before the next front arrives early Saturday morning. In the meantime, cloudy chance of showers today and tonight showers will once again decreased by Saturday afternoon rain chances may linger across the far north bay on Sunday. This is fresh air. I'm TV critic David being Cooley sitting in for Terry gross today show is dominated by song and dance. I up will listen back to an archive interview with Gwen Verdon, the Broadway, actress and dancer who electrified audiences in everything from cancan and Damn Yankees to Chicago along with one of her husband's choreographer and film director, Bob Fosse. She's the subject of a new FX miniseries called Fosse Verdon which premieres next Tuesday. Let's begin with my review of f X's Fosse Verdon. If you're a musical theater fan. Just the title Fosse version is enough to make this new FX miniseries. One of the most exciting TV prospects of the year. Gwen Verdon who originated the onstage characters of Lola in Damn Yankees and Roxie Hart in Chicago was one of the best dancers on Broadway. Bob, Fosse's particular style as both choreographer and movie director was dazzlingly different and captured in such films as cabaret still crackles with energy, this eight part drama sets out to tell how they met collaborated fell in love got married and had a daughter, but that's only part of the story which is about a relationship that keeps going long after the marriage has been dissolved. Two of the executive producers of Fossey verdict should be noted at the start one is Nicole Fosse the real life daughter of Bob Fosse, Gwen Verdon, another is Lin Manuel. Miranda who's Broadway.

"Of Bob Fosse, Gwen Verdon, another is Lin Manuel. Miranda who's Broadway success with Hamilton has been nothing. Short of phenomenal. His presence alone suggests that the musical numbers recreated here will be done with precision and reverence and they are and while her presence dictates that this biography of a parent is authorized it is not an entirely flattering portrayal of either of them the portrayals. However are so good. It's almost a relief. Gwen Verdon is played by Michelle Williams, who's come a long way from the WBZ Dawson's creek. And she was good. Even there in Manchester by the sea Brokeback mountain and my week with Marilyn she shown her versatility and sensitivity. And when I saw her take a turn starring in the recent Broadway revival of cabaret. She was one of the best sallies. I saw at the round. About theater, and I saw them all and speaking of versatility. Bob Fosse is played by Sam Rockwell who's done terrific work in everything from confessions of dangerous mind and galaxy quest to three billboards outside ebbing, Missouri. In Fosse Verdon these to inhabit their roles, completely and convincingly. The story isn't rolled out sequentially. It starts with the filming of sweet charity and keeps hopping backwards and forwards revealing bits of their past a scene at a time. So I'm not doing any spoiling here by presenting a scene from one after the couple separated, but still seeking support and advice from each other. He visits her after a day working on the movie cavalry. And she welcomes him warmly at first but not for long. Any worries about this drama taking a too easy on the characters are instantly, alleviate cut of the movie? What's wrong with the move? Oh, just to do things. Numbers of flat story doesn't make. There is no story. What is the story? I'm gonna see if they'll let me reassure the whole thing you think spring for. Felt the same way up. You saw the first cut of Jared. You know, so well, I was thinking maybe you could come to the editing room for few weeks. You know, and maybe see some things that I don't see a little lost. And why not? Didn't I tell you? I found a play. Oh, yeah. I'm going to be in rehearsals. Play. Straight plane. Yes. So it's called childrens children to throw a brand new, right? It's a terrific part in the place. Yes phenomenal. Well, that's congratulations. When do you start now is setting up a meeting with the director? I I just wanna make sure we have a good reform. You can start with trust difficult role. You're gonna hate it. I don't know why he would say that to me. And was the last time you act. Now when he walked in the door. How do I do? Very funny FX has made half of Fossey Verdon available for preview that's enough to recommend it highly. But not quite enough to allow for the rendering of a final verdict. I really like that it makes room for some of Fossey's famous friends like Neil, Simon and Patty Tchaikovsky played respectively by cordray and Norbert, Leo Butz. And while I'm intrigued by others. Like, Margaret qualley is an Ryan king. I need to see more to see how this all plays out. That's because Fossey Verdon written and directed by tag team of other producers and executive producers, including Thomas. Gale Stephen Levinson, Joel fields, and Charlotte stout is all over the place emotionally and artistically it recreates scenes from classic stage shows and movies while framing them within a frenetic sometimes fantasy narrative, that's exactly what Bob Fosse himself did while directing the nineteen Seventy-nine movie all that jazz, which was his barely fictionalized story of his own physical breakdown while juggling work on several similar tina's projects this FX series is in Justin. Oh, Majd all that jazz. It plays almost like an expanded director's cut with verdicts half of the story, given equal prominence, but the difference is Bob Fosse's, all that jazz was all Bob, Fosse's vision and voice, and I know how he ended all that jazz boldly and brilliantly with Fosse Verdon. I still haven't seen any. From the Chicago musical or anything else. From the later years yet. I'm very eager to see what Fossey Verdon presents in its second half. Because the first handful of episodes like the musical numbers. They recreate are surging with creativity and excitement, it's Showtime..
Through the eyes of Annie Leibovitz
"From the Mon broadcast center at KP. See see this is the frame, I'm John horn on today's show what the cancellation of Pearvel shows on Netflix might mean for the future of the TV business then from antiwar demonstrations to Arnold Schwarzenegger, riding horseback. Any Vits has photographed at all we walked through a new exhibit of her early work was not a good photojournaling. So I was going to have to tell more my story from my point of view and left journalism behind eventually turned to portraiture because it was a way of having real licensed to do what you wanted in a photograph and the country swing band asleep at the wheel is still rolling along fifty years after its founding all that coming up on the frame. With so many new players jumping into the streaming game including Disney, apple and Warner media. Twenty nineteen is likely to bring some big changes to the TV business. We called up Daniel Feinberg a TV critic for the Hollywood reporter to talk about what the future could look like to TV viewers. He's just finished covering two weeks of presentations from broadcast networks cable channels and streaming services at the television critics association meetings. We started with the news from earlier this week that net flicks. His canceling Jessica Jones and the punisher to marvel shows which not coincidentally are also Disney properties. There is no question that we are on the brink of some sort of key transition point. And regardless of what you choose to call it, whether you want to call it these streaming wars or the road to new cable, or whatever you wanted describe it as there are things that are changing that are going to dramatically reshape what the media landscape look. In five years in the same way that five years ago, it looked completely different. And I think that there's no question that the cancellation of the marvel shows on Netflix is a. Assign a gesture in a certain direction because these were very high profile shows for Netflix when they premiered and they were part of a big programming strategy. And now, suddenly all of the marvel properties are really part of aid Disney, plus or a Disney marvel streaming strategy, and so they don't fit with Netflix anymore. And I think that you're gonna see something with the tug of war over something like friends, I think that we are only at the beginning of what is going to be probably the biggest story in where television is going in the next year and a half probably. And that is basically that the people who create those shows used to see companies like Netflix as a source of ancillary revenue and now they see streaming services as direct competitors. So they're trying to pull their content back at their launching their own streaming services. Is that the bigger picture here? I think that is definitely the bigger picture. And all of the things that the Netflix and Hulu have kind of taken for granted as the foundation of their. Business model, you know, the for whatever we want to say about the apparently twelve billion dollars that Netflix last year poured into original programming acquired content is still a major portion of what people actually stream on Netflix. Whether it's whether it's friends, whether it's the office, whether it's all of the CW shows, and that's great for Netflix because it allows net flicks to have that kind of foundation, but it, but it's also a business that the people who actually own those programs want to be in. And so is Netflix original programming is it enough if suddenly the studio start taking away all of their prestige programs. Yeah. I don't know. Let's talk about a couple of new programs one that's on Netflix. It's called Russian doll and one on Hulu called Penn. Fifteen. These are shows that seem to be getting a lot of attention. Are they worth checking out? And how are they doing so far? I think they're absolutely were checking out, and I think we had absolutely no idea how either one of them is doing. Let's look says not put out a press release boasting that forty million people in some form or another have watched Russian doll. So I don't know all I know is that it's a really good show. It's a really smart show. It's a show that plays around with with format and with tone, and with style in very impressive ways. So Russian dolls. Definitely we're checking out, and I think Penn fifteen on Hulu is is a lot of fun to gimmick is the two co creators are basically playing junior high versions of themselves. Devil dis her last night at camp. How was even possible? I don't know what happened in the middle of her sleep. That's so unfair that happens to me surrounded by actual preteen and teen actors, and it's it's a really good show about the awkwardness of being a teenager. That's maybe aimed at older viewers who survived those years. I wanna talk about a couple of other shows that might be worth talking about FOX has a series called proven innocent pop has a series called flack and DC universe has a series called doom patrol or any of those shows are other things that you've seen jumping out in terms of midseason or early start shows that are coming out either. Now, or very soon one of the shows that if you've watched any BC in the past couple of weeks, and you're going to see as we move towards the Oscars this weekend that is getting a lot of buzz for ABC as whiskey cavalier whiskey cavalier. One of our best agents. I intelligence proven to be a huge asset to the bureau. You and your fiance recently parted ways. Yes, we did mutual most commercial, but I'm totally fine with it. We have the footage. How? It's a show that I would say succeeds at its goals, and that's something that I wouldn't necessarily say about say proven innocent, which is a very very run of the mill entirely forgettable legal procedural at the very least whiskey cavalier is pretty people Scott fully and learn Cohen or the stars are attractive and fun. And they're having a good time. It was shot in Europe. And it makes actual good use of European locations. It's got all of the depth of a very very shallow puddle. But on the other hand, it's fun. And it's the same with with DC universe is doomed patrol, which is kind of quirky kind of odd and of vast improvement over DC universe's, I live action show which was titans, which was all gloomy and glum and unpleasant. So there's something to be said for improvement one of the other things that happens at the as is that critics get sneak peeks, maybe it's some footage. Maybe it's a pilot of a show. That's not going to be on for a couple of months. Is there anything that you and your colleagues? Saw that might not be coming out immediately. But that you're really interested in seeing what more there is the series. Well, I definitely can't review. The one episode I've seen of FX Fosse Verdon, but I can tell you that that show which starts Sam Rockwell, and Michelle Williams is definitely going to be worth one that I'm looking forward to checking out. It's the story of Bob Fosse, Gwen Verdon. And so there's a lot of fifty sixty seventies cinematic, and Broadway and musical references and dancing and choreography. And I'm not gonna say anything more than I'm looking forward to seeing more episodes. Daniel Feinberg is a TV critic for the Hollywood reporter. He is also the president of the television critics association Daniel, thanks for your time and your insight. Thank you for having me. Coming up on the frame, any leave of its walks through an exhibit of her early work.

It's the glasses and the sharp features kind of confused. Bob Fosse in Bob macky. Oh, yeah. It's understandable. Just feather. I find if I knew anything about Bob macky, it might be.

"bob fosse" Discussed on The Director's Cut
"Wow. Wow. I you're saying like, my hero Stanley Donen, you know. This. Honestly, I first of all I will say thank you for saying what you said about feeling like a child because that honestly, honestly is the message of the film so to be able to look at life throw child's eyes. And I know it was my guiding force making this entire movie was I felt it's something I needed. Now. This current climate of our lives. I just felt like we needed to have that injection of hope and a child like sensibility in our lives of some joy. So that was really calling for me, and I will say when you mentioned Stanley Donen or. He's a hero because he was a choreographer director as Bob Fosse, these these this is sort of the my heroes. You know, started in theater and moved into film and television. And and I will say this was a gift for me in a way because to be able to do an original musical for me something that I've always wanted to do you don't those opportunities. Just don't come up like you said around. They just don't. And so the fact that we were following in the footsteps of Mary Poppins, and Disney sort of gave me that I felt like in a way a carte blanche. Which I couldn't believe to go do this. I felt so. I felt like I needed to honor that, you know, an honor the predecessors of a that have made me. And so, and so I really through every bit of love, and you know, heart I had into every frame of the film. I have one more question. And then we'll ask your last one. But. Sicher complicated movie. I've been involved in complicated movies and very often. You know, you learn something once you put it together. And so now, I'm kind of curious because the preparation the months, and and and the and the the work shopping and so forth. Did you still find that? And once you were through it that you needed to go back and do a couple of weeks, you know, or trying new song or anything else or or did did you? Did you get it? Did you get it the first time through you know, what I we had a very we had like I think a day and a half of additional photogr all it was so small only because I felt I needed to do all that prep work up front. And and really test the material. And that's when I so I did it before. Because also, you know, are are, you know, it was it was a big budget for most films, but for this film. Actually, it wasn't. It's interesting. So I found myself when I first landed in London having a Cup forty million out of the budget. So I think our budget was like one hundred thirty, but but when you're working at the scale with this amount of people know, captions, etc. It's it's it's still does it still. So I so I felt I said do it all now and the truth is there's nothing on the cutting room floor. Yeah. There's like one little tiny. Thank it. Nothing. Nothing. Ask question. It's all a lot of fear. Fear and terror. Over got chills. Thank that's, so lovely. Thank you so much. Thanks, everybody. That was an thank you, Ron. You're amazing. Thanks for listening to another DJ QNA if you'd like to hear more you can find past episodes of the director's cut wherever.

Like fantasy like castle. We're learning to be like a wizard. It's like Hogwarts the one young mourns in Hogwarts the other ones like apocalypse, pirate cove, and and the third one is in the road. Yeah. All all come together all come together. And it's like a short span of time. And it was it's been the same person. It's amazing. And then also like, they're not no same person, courtesy you think about it because they have different names different names at different points, and the most in the newest time-line, she's like in hiding which is going by fake name one time, she's like fully revealed herself. And then the as a kid, it's as she's getting her new name. She's just so great the world building simple. But like she just pulls you into ideas or like complex. Yeah. And then like they. They just added enough new stuff by the end of this book with the obelisks and the rock eaters, where you're like stone eaters, where you're like, okay. Let's figure out what this shit is incredible.

"bob fosse" Discussed on Mental Illness Happy Hour
"It just it it, he, he couldn't show that outside of the typewriter. It was hard for for him, which is fitting of so many. Artists is through their art. They can have the voice that they long to have. Yeah, in real life because it safe one hundred percent and you can say, oh, it's my character. Our, it's this. I mean, I know you're you're an actor. Yeah. Yeah. I'm sure you have experienced moments in movies where you say things that you wish you could say in real life or doing real life. Are there any that come to mind. You know, it's interesting. I I, my characters were almost a little shadowing of how I was feeling emotionally and where I was had the ability to be clear. For instance, when I did star eighty, there was a sense of victim in me a bit of a martyr. And so I played this character who was totally victim who was. Definitely trying to please people, and that's definitely where I was for most of my childhood, so it it kind of whenever I played a character, it would sort of unfold in me. That sense of this is why right now a little bit not not from like I was a method actor, but more about those were the issues that I needed to unravel can relate to this. And so I can express this authentically, yeah, did feel like that freed you up to be able to not be second guessing yourself about how to play a scene work? Tapping. Luckily when I'm when I'm in a in a project, that's really good. And people are like, excellent, you know, directors in the writing is good. Snow is helping, but when I feel that support, I never second guessed when I've been invited to join the party and step up. I don't tech and guess, and I'm very much I'm very direct -able. But if I don't have a good director, I'm no good. I'm just like it's just I feel that actors need to. I think, you know, I think acting such an interesting thing because you really do it's such a community effort, then you you, you need to have everybody, and it's it's such a, you're so exposed out there. And I, it boggles my mind how casting directors and directors cannot understand how exp- it's like, yeah, yelling at an actor onset is like yelling at somebody while they are naked in in front of a room, full of clothe people. It's it's horrible. Well, what's really interesting is so Bob Fosse star eighty. Again, I learned so much from him. He was extrordinary, but he was tough and I had heard of stories were with Marissa's baron San or something. He liked done something horrible show. On her something horrible. And I pulled him aside one day, and I said, I know who I am. And if you embarrass me yell at me, do something really horrible to me in front of other people, I will crumble, and I will shrink, you know, I will pull into myself and I won't. I won't. I won't do well for you, and I'm just, I don't know how you know Eric robbers is going to do it. I don't know how other people on some people really respond. Well, I don't. I will absolutely. I'm not asking for praise, but don't criticize me publicly because I was. So I had such fear of that anyway. So anyway, he was he was good. I was terribly worried that it's going to be really, that was it was really tough film. It was a really tough film. I when I was done, I cut my hair because I didn't want to have any relationship to that character..
