"Was at the psychiatric institute of beverly hills and we know that when grant died in one thousand nine hundred eighty six.

Same article Which is also read. Which fantastic work by jan brooks. I hope i'm pronouncing your name right. Mr brooks said that there were over forty thousand people would receive this treatment Between just a period of like fifteen years before the mid sixties mid sixties is when people started saying.

"Scott Simon. He's the author of a brand new biography of Cary Grant Subtitle A Brilliant Disguise. Scott, You were just talking about how Cary Grant moved physically, and you know, I think for people who know him just as a fashion icon, maybe they don't think about that They think of him is just a clotheshorse or something. But you said that he began his career. As an acrobat. Tell us about that. How? When did he grow up? And how did he find his way into show business? He grew up in Bristol, England, and extraordinarily difficult circumstances emotionally. His father was an alcoholic pants. Presser. His mother was Gets emotionally compromised would be a delicate way of putting it. His father institutionalized his mother. When Archie was 11 years old Archie was given to understand that she had died. Except it was. Obviously there was absolutely no communication inside the house, hey, accepted the fact that what he was told that he had died anyone out of his life there's he kept a diary when he was 14 years old. For 45 months until he got bored with it because diaries their hard work and it's fascinating because he's a lone wolf already at the age of 14. He's not going to class very often not going to school. What he's doing is going to the movies and going the musical. Seeing acts, and that's where he fell in love with show business because he would go backstage, and he would see the camaraderie between the lot of ill acts. The tumblers, the the acrobats, the comedians the way it was, like an extended family is attracted to the warmth because he had done in his life. His now his his voice, of course, hey, doesn't have AH standard English accent or any kind of a cock knee accent. It's like when you say that Cary Grant is a brilliant disguise, it says, though he created a voice for himself. It's literally the Bristol accent is a working class accent. If he kept his Bristol accent, he would be playing farm Foreman in England. That's the only party could've played because it's a working class accent in the same way that cocky is working class accent. He picked up the cock knee when he joined the acrobatic troupe. When he was 14 years old. He got himself kicked out of school, which was intentional. And he got his father to, uh ah, apprentice him to a very popular acrobatic troupe. The Pender trip popped under random and he was with the Pender troupe for the next of five years. Working, working working until he came to America and basically split. He just sort of went off on his own into American bought a girl. It's funny to think that W C fields a little bit different from Cary Grant also started as a tumbler as an acrobat in vaudeville. You would never think that when you look at it, uh His image today, Right, right, right. But but grants way of entering a comic performance with through physicality Through his physicality, he worked out his perform his comedy in terms of his movement. And the rhythm of his movement and out with jive with the rhythm of the lines. When you look at a movie like bringing up baby watching how completely thought out the performances from a physical point of view, there's a scene where hey is following directly behind Pepper's stirred has been ripped off. He's trying to avoid people seeing that her scripts been ripped off, and he's moving in a kind of like his feet or talk like his legs are tied at the knees. Right. That's something that only a physical comedian would think of doing. You know if he physical eyes this performance that he continues to do that, basically throughout his career, coming up with an original way to make the humor come out of the movement as well as the dialogue. Here's a simple question. How tall was he? 62? I asked that just because when you look at him and you see the way clothes hang on him, and men were their pants, very high waisted in those days, it's It's almost impossible unless you hear 62 to dress the way he did you congest maybe like Fred Astaire if you're thin, but it's fascinating to look at Just at his body and how close hung on him, and he rarely weighed more than £175. He was on the slender side. He was very careful about his weight because he was vain about his appearance. He wanted to look good clothes were important to him. It was there was a way of emphasizing status when your lower middle class or working class Which is what he Woz is a boy. So the appearance hey wanted his appearance to precede him into the room, and it was a way of removing the doubt that people might have had a bottom. When he opened his mouth and out came Bristol accent, So he was playing the role of Cary Grant rather, early on. When was he given that name in Hollywood? When he signed with Paramount up Till then he's Archie Leach. He would not all through vaudeville in America. He's Archie Leach. He did. A couple was signed to Schubert, the Schubert organization to do Broadway musicals and on the road because the Shuberts always had a big road. Component, and he was Archie Leach. Then, too. He didn't change his name until they sign he signed with Paramount at the end of 1931. On. He took Carrie truck part he played in a play on Broadway with Fay Wray. Because he played a character named Kerry Lockwood. So he took the Kerry because he liked it and grand came from just a random list of surnames that Paramount ad, So it was one from column A one from Column B. It's so bizarre Whenever you hear of somebody taking a name, you think what a thing to dotolo name and then for the rest of your life to be known by that name and not your own. Name. I think it worked pretty well for him, though it worked. Okay? Hey, but But the problem was the psychological problems of a similar he could play. Cary Grant easily could flip the switch and be Cary Grant. And since most people expected to see that he attended portrayed, I think socially. Like the problem in its private life was assimilating Archie, a working class kid from Bristol with an indifferent education and a kind of old, seriously old wives tales in his head about what was healthy and it was not helping with Cary Grant, who didn't have much many doubts about anything unless he was being chased by a crop dusting plane in North Dakota something well. Uh, let me ask you because this is something I don't remember. When did he marry? How many times was he married? But Five..

"I used to be rolling Stone. Hey there, folks we're talking about Cary Grant. What's not to like the author of a brand new biography Scott Diamond is on with me. Scott you mentioned earlier that And I was saying the same thing when I choose. Ah, a knob jek for a biography of subject. Um, you want to make sure that somebody hasn't written the definitive work or at least in your estimation. So what have some of the previous Bjarke biographies missed that you hoped to remedy Well, I found his body Bill period fascinating because that's where he's learning the art of performing the art of our art of winning the audience over and very short order because invited Billy only had 10 or 12 minutes for an act. So you couldn't you couldn't start slow. You had to come out there and build immediately. Uh And he always said the secret to comedy is timing. It's all about timing. There's nothing else involved because a lot of jokes that that play very well if you see them written down on paper aren't really that funny, correct of the timing and the personality and how how the joke is put over On with and he said. That's where he learned timing. It was in the theater in vaudeville, working four and five performances a day over and over again for different audiences. The early audience is a little slower because they had, you know, it's like a 10 in the morning, you know, and they're still waking up. The best performances were usually the eight o'clock performance, but not always. You couldn't you couldn't always assume that the 10 o'clock in the morning audience was gonna be a stiff because sometimes they were very lifelike. But, he said, working in front of all audiences three or four shows a day for years, you really did learn a discipline, a sense of craft a sense of what works with an audience, which comes an invaluable when you're doing movies where there's no audience where the crew can't laugh. Where you have to think that it's probably might work if I do this, and if I break the line up that way, because you've done it that thing hundreds and hundreds of times in the theater and invited bill, But for people who just come into movies without having that theatrical experience gets very difficult because you don't know how an audience reacts. Well, um he really is masterful. I think that's the word that I'd have to use to describe Cary Grant just the way he manages to be comfortable in his body and all of these different roles. If you had to pick what would you say was his best movie? Can you pick? It depends on which kind of how you like your Cary Grant. If you like your Cary Grant as as a wild comedian, you go with bringing up baby or his girl Friday. Speaking of great journalism, you know, it's my favorite journalism movies. His girl Friday If you like your Cary grant serious and somewhat threatening, you go with notorious or suspicion. If you like Cary Cary Grant doing a star turn that I would go in to catch a thief. On If you like Cary Grant showing what he could do with a serious dramatic performance. I would go with Penny serenade or none but the lonely heart, preferably the ladder. I don't even I don't even know those two. I'm ashamed to say Maybe I should be too ashamed since you're the world expert on Cary Grant, But, um, in you said it doing a star turn in to catch a thief. I saw that Not too long ago. I've seen it before. But there's something about it. That bothers me. Maybe because I sense that he's doing a star turn more than a good movie. Well, it's a vehicle. It's to catch a thief. His design is a vehicle. It's a Hitchcock movie. So it's just going to give the audience what they expect from a Hitchcock movie that's set in the south of France and where they went to the trouble of shooting it in the south of France. It has got Cary Grant and Grace Kelly. So you've got a certain combination of elements with it had already established Personas. Grace Kelly by 1954 has made a 45 pictures and the audience has she done rear window? She done high noon? Sure her personality was coming into focus to catch a thief really solidifies it. You know, a zey very well bred, classy girl with fire beneath the beautiful blonde appearance, and it's sexy, and it's beautifully shot, and it's kind of erotic and romantic at the same time, and it's also a thriller. It's a mystery. It's there's a lot of a lot of different elements to mix into one movie. How many films did he did he do with Hitchcock or four or notorious Suspicion notorious to catch up the North by northwest. Yeah, a notorious I would. I would think it might be the best movie. I don't know, but I just I love that film Claude Rains. It's great. Remind us about suspicion now because that one I'm not remembering. It is the one or is married to Joan Fontaine, and she thinks he's trying to kill her. Right. He's kind of escape grace ne'er do well, charming but apparently lethal, and the ending of the film was going to be. She was right. It was intending to kill her, and, in fact does killer but he gets tripped up when he mailed the letter she left for him to pose. Which include will incriminate in and getting caught. But the production code wouldn't allow a murderer to get away with murder, even if he's going to get arrested after the movie's over, so they had to reshoot the ending. But he's not a murderer, and she simply clinical paranoid, which destroys the entire picture. As far as I'm concerned. Is it considered one of Hitchcock's best films or just grants Best films? It's considered an interesting, uh, uninterested picture that loses his momentum because of circumstances beyond Hitchcock's control. Interesting. We have to talk about north by Northwest. Um, First of all. What a film. Yeah. I don't know where to begin. Uh, that. I mean, you talk about a star turn the way he behaves so suavely in the train with Eva Marie Saint that is vintage. Vintage Cary Grant were actually all the time in the segment. We're gonna be right back. We will continue the conversation about Cary Grant. The new book is called Cary Grant. A brilliant disguise the author Scott, I'm unde. Don't go away. Well, remind me why.
George Clooney reveals how and why he gifted 14 friends $1 million cash
"Shall we talk about george clooney. I'd love to. I mean it's great stuff. What a joy to wake up on a tuesday morning and just find a profile of george clooney and cheeky magazine. I mean i can't ask for much more in this life First of all this is the man of the year man of the year issue. An annual occurrence for gpo usually accompanied by a party or parties. there's some kind of fun. Dj set online slash than doesn't sound fun. at all. i mean george clooney is just like the de facto celebrity to me. It's just like you've for for me. Just because i love him so much more so than brad pitt. Who is you know. One of our animating figures. Of course their friends part of both their charm. George clooney has always been lovable because of playing doug on er those politics both of which are part of this piece. But i just feel like this was like best case scenario for a celebrity profile. What stood out about it to you. This is slightly awkward as we noted. Your husband wrote this but you know. Just talk about his work. Yeah let me see. I was not involved in this process and just reading it. You know differently than i feel like i know the man who wrote this you sleep. You wanna say through this these interviews were done over. Zoom as the as the peace explains for a number of reasons but for the health and safety of everyone in this time so like they were done in my house on and afterwards i was thinking about the fact that george has such a distinctive voice that i should have just stood outside the door and listened to george clooney talking like through the door. Because i don't think i think act just uses the zoom without headphones for these interviews. I don't think he wants to bring bluetooth into this experience. And screw it up even more. So i i regret not standing outside the door like a creep and listening to george. Clooney talk and i didn't do that so i really. I have no behind the scenes information. I just absolutely charming. And that's why you want from george clooney right you want him to be a like cary grant but for now and i just like a hugely charming informed person that you want to spend time with. I honestly want that more. From george clooney than i want like a movie directed by george clooney at this point or movie starring george clooney. You know there are many movies starring. George clooney that. I really enjoy but i just. I'm happy for him as like capital g capital. See george clooney. And what's nice about. The profile is that he seems to know that too and he's just like let me give you some more george clooney stuff and let me just tell you about how much i love my wife for awhile and let me just tell you how acting works. I thought that stuff was so fascinating. I love it when really talented people just like switch into their genius mode and like i'm gonna tell you this and i'm going to tell you this and he tells a story about e. r. n. Any tells another story and he's just like annotating the scene and it's like talking to someone who knows a ton of stuff. I thought that was fascinating. He shares an anecdote from steven spielberg students. Billboard tells them to stop moving his head so much. And i loved that because doug ross did move his head a lot especially when talking to carol. You assert like trying to like burrow into the moment. And it's like dude. You don't need to your doug fucking rossier water. Attrition your renegade pediatrician. He also so happy that zach got him to talk about the time he gave his fourteen friends. Each one million dollars in cash on honestly the details are so much better than you ever could have hoped for. This story came out. I think like almost two years ago. We talked about it at the time. I think randy gerber shared the information. Right yes and then. I think we talked about it on jam session and zack knew about it. And then zach wanted to ask you about it. So i'm gonna credit usually with that particular. Thank you thank you so much. Thank you so much zach. So george clooney like basically impersonated danny ocean one day. Although i think the other takeaways like owed any ocean it's probably a lot like george clooney and he got a florist ban that he rented for the day and drove to an unnamed location. Downtown los angeles richardson. huge vaults. Like just stacks of cash literally. It's kind of like the way they portrayed the vault in die hard three. you know. there's like all that cash. What i guess the vault i was imagining i skipped ahead. Because there's an ocean's eleven here too but keep telling this story you're doing great. I won't interrupt. He goes down like multiple levels below ground and just gets tons of cash and then puts a a million dollars in two fourteen different to me. Suitcases he says that it's much lighter than you would think. And then he loads it into the van and he drives away then. He gives his friends the money. And yeah the reference. The correlation to ocean eleven is shocking. It's stunning right right. There is like i can see the duffle bags of money notions eleven being carried out of the blasio and it is absolutely that and they also commandeered a swat car that like it's very similarly ban also underground the whole thing is like it's hard to believe it's real george clooney. Actually i made that up. It's not how i did it. And he just was like. This is the antidote. I'm gonna tell. I also surprised because it's like so close to the movie.
"cary grant" Discussed on SpyHards Podcast
"He wrote the play that they based that off. He also wrote a number of episodes of wagon train. So he was definitely like an industry veteran income also involved was a writer named Johanna Harwood. This was her first writing credit. She previously worked in the script assistant continuity department and she would go on to have a number of credits page a couple of James Bond ones. We'll get to later and then there was also another writer named Berkeley May there who wrote tons of TV. He also wrote one episode of The Avengers so he had some spy credentials and basically the three of them took turns on this material trying to kind of beat it into a recognizable screenplay and it's interesting that when you have the very first James Bond movie you have three writers because nowadays dead. You know, if you see three writers on a movie you kind of go like oh, like what happened there, you know to is common, but 345 that's when you start to you know question it because you always know when you see three or four months there was probably other people that just weren't credited. Yeah, like it's going through several phases of being written and re-written and right when it came to Ian Fleming involvement. A lot of that really came more to broadcasting Ian Fleming was just really into the casting Department. Like he was floating, you know, Richard Burton. He really liked Richard Burton for the role. I don't think they ever approached Richard Burton. They approached Cary Grant Cary Grant said, he would do it if it was a one-off movie but because it was a franchise Cary Grant was out of there the main name that they wanted. It seemed that the producers all kind of agreed on was Patrick mcgoohan who starred in The Prisoner TV show. He did not want to do it for moral reasons. Apparently Patrick mcgoohan was quite a religious man wage. And just did not agree with this material whatsoever. Yeah, and can you imagine him in the role Scott? I have to say I have no idea who you're talking about. So no, I can't that's all imagine him in the role. He played the older King in Braveheart you assuming being from the United Kingdom that I can recall Braveheart with that Clarity? Yes. Yes. I am. I mean, he was one of the stars of the movie package. It was basically Mel Gibson Patrick mcgoohan. I'll admit to you now. I think I've seen Braveheart once when it came out on VHS and I rented it from Blockbuster as a young kid. That's all I've ever seen one that really doesn't explain why you're wearing blue paint right now. But okay. I just like to Rebel it. I'm at home. Sometimes, you know another name that was also floated was David Niven wage But ultimately Connery was on their short list and he ended up getting the role and he was somewhat of an unknown at this point. He had some acting credits out there. He was in like Darby O'Gill and the little people You've done a few things here and there but he came in as a kind of rough-and-tumble young man. So he was a very interesting casting choice. Not the sophisticated ideal. You think of when you think of James Bond, you know, that's a surprise me doing my research on Sean Connery before the role.

"Leading lady rolls and she didn't get enough of the really great, um, great roles even when she's in a narrow Flynn film. She's very important. Those are sort of Errol Flynn films, if you know what I mean. So She wanted more and in the studio system if you were problematic if you didn't if you stayed home and said I won't do that role, I'm not going to do it. And you were under contract to the studio the time you stayed home. They did not pay you and they added it to the end of your contract. So stayed out the longer you were under contract to them and had to do what they wanted. And that was what prompted her. To bring Ah lawsuit saying. This is not a legal practice you cannot keep.

Searching for Summer Shipp
"So summer shipp grew up under her given name Dolores in Granite City Illinois. Her mother Cora raised her and her three brothers alone after their alcoholic. Father left the family. Now Cora raise children as Jehovah's Witnesses and this was a religion there's some are continued to practice throughout her life. She did stop attending services but observed religion. She never celebrated Christmas birthdays. She said that every day was a holiday and she liked by her daughter and her friends gifts when it was her birthday. Isn't that Nice good? Sounds like a nice lady really really nice so some are grew up in extreme poverty under pretty rough circumstances and of this. She has pretty frugal but in our young adulthood she married a wealthy man John Ship and she lived for years in luxury however difficult childhood in Granite City. That never was far from her mind. John Ship was the manager for the local metro-goldwyn-mayer branch. Mgm when he moved to Kansas City from Florida in nineteen sixty nine now summer had moved to Kansas City just a few months previously. She saw the city as a place to forget her pass and she's going to create new life for herself. Yeah that was important to her to kind of start over. The childhood was rough so John. Lived in the same apartment complex as a friend of summers and when she visited that friend at the community pool she really caught Johns I. Some are was not a classic beauty but she was really pretty at five foot one inches tall and just over a hundred pounds. She was tiny but she was a bundle of energy sometimes described as sprightly so although John had a girlfriend at the time he broke things off with her to be with summer in October of nineteen. Seventy summer was pregnant and she told John on the night. He took her to see an advance screening of the movie. Two thousand one a space odyssey and after that they decided to move in together and just see if they could make things work. John's apartment became their first home together and their front door was just feet from the pool so John worked as he floated in the water and Sunday himself. The phone set nearby and when it rang he would just paddle to the edge of the pool and work on deals so this is kind of living the dream. I guess float around in the pool. Yeah phones broke their nice good way to do it but he did work hard. He negotiated film showing contracts for hundreds of theaters throughout Missouri and Kansas. So he was really on his way up in the industry at this point so some are in. John got married at the courthouse with John's brother and a friend of summers as witnesses and they had a daughter who they named Brandy. She had read here like her mother's but even brighter and darker and both summer and John were just thrilled with this little girl. They moved out of the apartment and rented a cottage that summer adored for a while and then as the money kept coming in two years later they moved into a duplex in a very upper class area living near professional football players so John left MGM and but an independent Film Distribution Company called Thomas Films and after he bought it he changed the name to Thomas and ship films. The company was more successful than he had ever could have been able to imagine. He made a ton of money so much money that he felt like he'd WanNa Lottery. Are He come up from humble beginnings himself? Yes I think in summer really didn't know what to do with all this money. It was foreign to both of them and I guess summer was able to kind of not focus on it. She just wasn't that interested in things but I think John it kind of affected him and he got carried away with it here. Well I knew her. Religion would seem to me to make her less desirous of money. And what money can buy share? I mean I'm sure she liked not having to worry about it like she had all her life absolutely and remember up until this time she's still going by her original name. Dolores but when brandy was just a toddler that's when she legally took on her new name. Summer brandies middle name was Alexis so some are named herself summer. Alexis ship and by the time brandy was three. John was making over two hundred thousand dollars a year. And this is the nineteen seventies. So I looked it up. And that's about seven hundred thousand dollars a year equivalent in today's money so ton of money tournament in nineteen seventy four. They bought a two story. English Tudor home in the exclusive Crestwood neighborhood and they had a house with a huge private in ground pool. An Art Gallery Jim Asana just everything. Yes so brandy was Kinda spoiled. When she was a little girl. It was almost unavoidable even though she did get a lot of attention as well as things but like I mentioned John's lifestyle just became out of control as his income was soaring. He spent time on the West and east coasts partying with the rich and famous. Eventually he found himself with an expensive dependence on cocaine and pills and is John pulled away from his home and family life into this life. Some are just kind of channeled her love and attention into raising her daughter. So Brandy got a lot of attention. Showered on her. Maybe too much if that's possible. Do you think that's possible to give a kid too much attention? No again it depends on what kind of attention. Well here's my thought on it. You can give them too much attention if you're allowing them to control you like when you're on the phone they're trying to take your attention away when people come over when you have worked to do. I mean there has to be a respect as well sure. That's why I said it depends on the kind of attention right so I think that it can be a bad thing when you get to the extreme. But that's not really the attention being the problem I guess that's more like the The fruits of the attention. Well yeah it's kind of the control like you want your child to see you as being in control of things when you don't want your child to take over control of what's going on day to day. Well I mean it can really be unhealthy and they can have a rude awakening when they get older. And everybody's not just falling over themselves to please them herbs moving so I think that's another issue is you don't want to raise them to feel entitled to everything so anyway I mean they did love her and it was a nice childhood although she was probably a little bit spoiled. Well how does she turn out? She turns out great. Okay so in. Nineteen seventy six. John took brandy in summer to the cons film festival ru and they spent time with David Kerosene is that the Kung Fu guy. Well that's the Carribean family. I don't know which one is which I think David was Kung-fu guy okay. And cary grant roll my love who carry granted yes. He was in one of my favorite movies. What was it sweep? Listen in Seattle now. An affair to remember. I know I was GONNA say that next so afterwards they went on an extended vacation to London Rome and Paris and they flew back to the United States on the First Air France Concorde flight from Paris to Washington. Dc wrong that's That's cool that's cool. That's Nice. Yes where she? Oh totally. And some are just felt like this poor country girl who was living like royalty. John became one of the biggest independent film distributors in the country and they were dining with. Paul Newman Joanne Woodward and Clint Eastwood Big names. Very big names especially in the seventies absolutely well when still around working yeah. He's still big but as her life was changing. Some are really didn't change. Who she was and I respect that. While John was traveling all over the world she stayed home and spent time with her daughter. She also invited other children over for play dates reading books and singing with them so she liked to share in her good fortune which. I think is so important. She even took time to volunteer at a home for emotionally disturbed young women and as a reward for good behavior. She would bring some of the girls to her house to swim for a day and loved it and they worked hard and did things so that they could earn a day at the pool so are like summer. She sounds like she's cutter head on straight and she's living the life. Well you know it's funny because they started reading the book about summer than I found online and I had no idea I was going to do the case but I did just feel such an affection for this woman that I enjoyed reading the book. It wasn't like work and I really enjoyed being able to Read about her in her life. Of course Jon was away a lot of the time. And he had his drinking habits in his drug habits so understandably their marriage suffered. There is a large Christmas office party in the late seventies when summer walked in on John and he and other parties were snorting large amounts of cocaine right on his desk so she walked out feeling pretty angry and worried at the same time. Sure I mean not only worried John but for her daughter you know. It's just very risky behavior. That he was getting into their relationship was getting more and more distant. Rose probably not a lot of good that comes out of a cocaine addiction or a drug addiction for that matter in marriage right. Something's going to happen well and it's interesting that when things stopped going so well for John and he has to really deal with things he does get better. So by nineteen eighty. His company started going downhill and the small films that John Distributed. Were really being snatched up by the major film companies without that business. He was quickly falling behind on his debts and he fell into some deep financial trouble because he hadn't saved enough. He was a big spender and happens. Cocaine is not free. I know but wouldn't you just put enough in a savings somewhere? In case the bottom falls out as a backup will most people would but a lot of people disfigure that. There's no end to this stuff. I guess you feel that way now is at this very very successful company. Money's just rolling in. I'd be of the opinion that this no change in that things are going to keep happening for me. Well and I'm kind of surprised that the way summer grew up that she didn't squirrel away more money because I personally waiting for the other shoe to drop and I liked to be prepared. Well Yeah but she did. She work well not really now. Not at that point or any money. She had came through her husband. Sheriff so what you're going to say to him honey. I need an extra thousand this week. 'cause I'm saving for when you go bankrupt? Well I just say. I WANNA start a savings account. I WANNA put a thousand dollars a week away and it shouldn't have fazed him when he was making so much
Adina Hoffman: Ben Hecht: Fighting Words, Moving Pictures
"I'm Michael Silver Blah this bookworm arm and today I'm very pleased to have as my guest. Adina Hoffman the Dina has written a life of the great almost mind boggling screenwriter Ben. Hecht the book has the Subtitle Fighting Words moving pictures this Ben Hecht had his. Oh would you say finger in so many tries He starts out now having moved with his family to the mid West as soon as he graduates from high school. He realizes this is. The college is not for him and he high tails it to Chicago where he becomes a very well-known newspaper this paper Man Song well known that his adventures in the newspaper business but come perhaps the most is famous play ever to be written about newspapers that he wrote with Charles MacArthur. Yes called the front page. The the front page becomes his girl Friday with cary grant and Rosalind Russell and thereby hangs a tale every the time Ben Hecht turns around. There's a revision of something. He's done a new who've version of it by someone else that he in turn revise right even his own memoirs has multiple versions of what happened to him in his own life life. He's kind of astonishing. This came from the days when face at a writer wrote right. These were people who wrote all the time there's also literary life that Hecht has in Chicago and actually this was one of the fascinating things for me is where his kind of the big city You know newspaper world met the world of the Chicago Renaissance and a lot of the people who were in that newspaper world. People like Carl Sandberg. who was a really good friend of Heck's you know he was also a reporter and they were sort of Newspaperman by day and then by night they were writing their poems in their novels and Hecht was not only hanging around with people like Sherwood Anderson Jason and he was also publishing in the little review which is unbelievable magazine? Push some of the first chapters of James Joyce's ulysses and they felt. What was her name? Margaret Anderson Anderson felt that Ben Heck was every bit as much a member of of the little review says dream straight. And he's there on almost every single issue. He was a kind of a pet of hers. He was sort of in love with her. She was unfortunately Very distracted by high art and she was also a lesbian was not interested in in that way but she loved him and she published him. Ben Has a great fiction writer. I mean he was. He fancied himself self novelist But he was very devoted to that calling but at the same time that he was writing. These very heavy breathing stories for Margaret Anderson. He was also writing he. He was whipping off these commercials stories for Lincoln at the smart set. HMO MINKIN was one of his heroes. Mencken was a cynic cynic and a sophisticated and he had every bit of hostility toward the dumb aspects of American culture. He was trying to make America smart op. He wrote fascinating essays sason books on the American language as opposed to British. We don't get an American writer per se until until Mark Twain who's writing the Mississippi River. Talk that he learned when he was a boatman. Well by the time you've got the middle of the country Chicago you've got gangsters you've got prohibition you've got flappers you've got an American language wood jr that was invented here and Hecht loved. -actly yeah and I think for me. That was one of the wonderful things about spending time with him. I was reading. This book was spending time with his language. I mean whatever you WANNA say about. Whether his books are wonderful books or not so wonderful books he was a wonderful maker of sentences and paragraphs graphs and just terrific wit on top of it and he and Macarthur wrote the front page. which was kind of Valentine to that newspaper World of Chicago? You go where they've both been cub reporters you see. He comes in to the newspaper office. Writing these things. In Extreme Telegraphy Telegraphy as as you quote them right they are made of twenty three delight phrases. He's putting them together hurling them together and eventually he's going to have some fame as the newspaper Komo's rining calms every every day made up of just what he heard some Hobo say right or what some very wealthy people were saying in a casino no to be a writer then will start out as journalists. That's where Hemingway starts. He proposed this idea of. But this daily column that you've mentioned which would become known as a thousand and one afternoons in Chicago and they're kind of remarkable pieces they're just little snippets and there's a sense that the news is not just test the news of the grant headline it's also all these sort of marginal lives and people. You know the guy who runs the laundromat and the woman who works as a manicurist and has to fend off her lecherous clients. There's a way in which he's tossing this stuff off in a very casual way reading them daily. They're published on the back page of the newspaper next to the to the comic strips and he's not taking them too seriously or taking himself too seriously and there's so much better than the fiction into which he was pouring his all of his artistic ambition. That just is not the effective whereas these things that he was doing kind of on the fly as you say they're wonderful and they're incredibly generous and sympathetic. You feel him identifying with all of the city of Chicago In a way they kind of anticipate the work of later colonists people like beat Hamill and Jimmy Breslin. Who would become more famous in a way for doing doing that? who may also by now have been forgotten but act. was doing that early on. I'm talking to Adina Hoffman about. Don't her book Ben. Hecht its subtitle fighting. Words moving pictures and it's published in the Jewish writers series series published by Yale University. Press you mention that a lot of these people have been forgotten even people more recent Jonathan head so why Ben Hair. Well IT'S A. It's the question that I get all the time. And it's a good question and I mean basically at some level I feel like I've known Ben Hecht before before I knew Ben Hecht if you grow up watching American movies. He's his words are in your head even if you've never heard his name and so and I used to watch a lot of old movies as a kid but it was only when I became more conscious conscious and started to read about film history I actually worked as a film critic throughout most of the ninety s Then I was very aware of who Ben Hecht was and I I read his wonderful memoir child trial of the century. And I thought wow you know okay the movies he's known as you know. Pauline Kale called him the greatest American screenwriter Gianluca Dard said he invented eighty percent percent. Of what is used in Hollywood movies today called him a genius and all of that is true but the fact is that for heck the movies were really just a piece of it and in some ways they were actually may be one of the smaller pieces pieces of it in that memoir is full of all these other lives that we've just been talking about so I was first of all fascinated by that multiplicity of his the fact that he could contain multitudes dude but I also was drawn to heck in terms of his relationship to Jewish things. And here's a place where he basically an American Jew who claims not to have really paid much attention to the fact of his Jewishness until his consciousness was sort of raised by the Holocaust there. He's been in Chicago. He knows the woman. Editing the little review he knows call Sandberg. He knows Sherwood Anderson he moves to New York becomes friends with Herman Mankiewicz Herman Mankiewicz and also the roundtable tape Dorothy Parker and Benchley and S J Perelman and the Algonquin New Yorker Gang. He he moves to Los Angeles. He does what's so many do he has nothing but contempt damned for the people who started the motion picture industry. You say that you're interested in Hicks. Judaism with those were hits Jews. He didn't like them. There are a lot of Jews in heck's life he was actually born on the lower east side and he spent the first few years of his life. There and I don't actually think that that's Unimportant I mean. He grew up in Racine Wisconsin. which is this pastoral American American place etc but there is a way in which those tenements were in him in a very deep

We had this this great, quote, where he said, I pretended to be somebody wanted to be and I finally became that person. Or he became me or we met at some point in. It's such a useful visual to think that who you are today in higher define yourself with your narrative is almost like you think of like a diagram of two circles.

"So how did that resolve itself? I mean, obviously, we know how it resolves. But had it better for. She was better for Monica. Did you make that call? No. I think modern David. And then Janai didn't when I showed up at the for the reading the first reading Jen was there. Okay. Leblanc in Schwimmer on this podcast of both severally talked about a trip to Vegas that you took them on. And they remember every detail of it. And I wonder if you can give your version of what happened it never happened. They're fake news. This is ninety four. I think it did the first four friend because it was so, you know, I at my own company, and but the show was so special that I wanted to do it. So I did the first four and after the second one I said to less moon Vesa was then head of one brother's television. I said can I take the kids Vegas all six of them? This is after the show has been given a green light. But before any episodes of episodes are on the okay? And he says sure, so I said, I'll tell you what you pay for the plane, I'll pay for dinner, and so he's greed, and I flew to six in Vegas, and we had dinner at quote, gang, pox, go in a Caesar's. And I sat six around around a great time every night that and I don't know where came from. I knew how special the show was. I said to the six this is your last shot at amenity from now on one side show hits the air. It's all over. Now kidding me. Now, I said it's all over. And I was prophetic. I don't know you know, trying to warn them or dissuade worn yet. And it was interesting walking through the casinos. They were I heard you gave them each five hundred. They all wrote me check. And I still should have the checks on the wall. You know, it's it's that my dad used to tell me that back in the old days in the thirties and forties when people would drive across the United States. And when Hollywood people stars like Cary Grant, or are Clark Gable drive across when they fill up their cars with gas and a local station on the way, they would write a check and would never be catch. It would be on the wall. You know, that's not going to eat. So an hindsight I should. But it was wonderful. They they were they love one another so much on that show. And that was I dated I encouraged that I encourage I I knew I was going to be able to do all the shows. And I knew how talented kids were. And I knew how good the writing was Martin David wrote the best scripts ever. But how do you, cultivate that? Because that's part of what makes I think you different from just any other director. You have seemed to have a way with actors. And maybe it's something you reuse on different pilots. I don't know. Or maybe there was something specific with friends, for instance. But why did they click when especially when pretty quickly people start renegotiating salaries? And then it's a matter of with such a big show who's the star who's the bigger? How did you guys keep a lid on all of that? And get along. I had some clout because cheers before cheers. When I did pilots. I didn't have a lot of cloud. But after chairs after Fraser discloure out. And so they liked me. And they would walk the comic plank for me. And they would listen to me as opposed to a lot of people who didn't and the I would say to them. You guys are in a lifeboat here in a lifeboat. You're all really gifted. You'll have great ideas, you seem to like one another you need to, cultivate, that and you need to you need to to to keep that and depend on one another. And you know, you help one another when another direct to comes in. You know, it's going to be different than me. I'm not saying he's going to be less talent or mortality is going to be different. But don't let that stop you from creating ideas and talking to him and tell him what you feel and everything like that. And you know, the what the great thing they did is they negotiated together. There were no individual negotiation, which is smart, but you would do things like let them play poker in your office before taping..

But Scotty was actually a character who was operating at great risk, facilitating the desires of people who were really victims of person. At the hands of their own cities, police force and. This, I think makes him rather heroic figure. So that's on the one hand. On the other hand, this frequently mentioned position that Cary Grant is a perfect specimen of male movie stardom and that you will ruin Cary Grant for me by proving or putting on display evidence of his same sexuality. Now, as I say that, it sounds unbelievable to be that I have heard this frequently over the course of making this movie that is kind of the reflex reaction of a certain type of individual who loves the talk about the prospect of this movie, but their initial reaction and it usually is about Cary Grant is I don't wanna know that about Cary Grant you're just going to ruin him for me and I, I don't know how to deal with that. I'm not sure why they feel. They can even say it. It'd be honest with you. I get it. We know why they can say, yes. Well, it's, it's, it's said with good humor. It's all jolly when it's being said, but what the implications of it are somewhat disturbing. And point to a lot of things.
