Thank you. i'm really happy to be here. Yeah so some time ago you shared with me. I was like what. What are you working on now. And you said that your new project on fashion and the ninety s. And i was like ooh like hell ambitious and the reason i say this is ninety s. Fashion is very tricky period of time to tackle. It's not all that long ago. It's not like it's forgotten. And you and i were actually both teenagers in the ninety s. I think a little bit older than you. So i was early nineties. You're kind of late ninety s but we lived these close firsthand so it's not like we don't know anything about them and that's really interesting in and of itself because it's a bit of a rarity oftentimes that s fashion stories. We're working on periods where we actually wore those fashions. So the reason i'm saying it's tricky is because the nineties. The styles in fashion is exceedingly resistant to categorization. Would you agree with that. Oh yes that was one of the biggest houses with project. And you have this wonderful quote early on in the book and you're quoting a fashion journalist.

Project Sealab 1 Summary Report - Part 1
"Way back in the nineteen sixties when i was growing up most of us were intently focused on the space race in one thousand nine hundred sixty four. The united states was making the transition from the mercury program to the gemini program and there really wasn't allowed manned spaceflight going on that year but there was another amazing exploration going on in interspace natwest project lab. One well i didn't know a great deal about c. lab until i started doing some research for the segment. I did hear on the show about scott carpenter. I did read. Ben held hells worst book about c. lab and that gave me a really good understanding of the magnitude of the entire c. Lab project both one two and three. And as i was doing more research i came across a report from the office of navel research. And it's the project sea labs summary report so today. I wanna start two part series on this report in part one today. I'll take you through the report up until the c. Lab one habitat is placed in position and then in part to a couple of weeks from now will review the mission some of the findings and conclusions by the project sea labs. Some report is subtitled. An experimental eleven day undersea saturation dive at one. Hundred and ninety three feet and report is dated june fourteenth nineteen sixty five for anyone looking for the report you might want to search on n r report. Ac are one zero eight. It's not that long to sixty two pages now. The copy. I got had a stamp on the cover. Then indicated. hard copies of the report would cost three dollars while microfiche would be seventy five cents and the copy was also stamped. Archived copy of this report are ha o.'neil from the office of navel research. Gif bond captain united states navy from the united states naval medical research. Laboratory are eland. Fear lieutenant commander. Us n. office of navel research and t odum of the mind defense laboratory in the preface pen by rear admiral. Leighton he says project sea lab one was the navy's first step into space. He also states that this report is being published by the navy so that all may share the information it is interesting to note that the background section of the report the authors do reference the work being done by captain shot cousteau and mr edwin a link and that was on their man in the sea concept they they stated indeed. The navy seems to be left at the post by the well-publicized efforts of captain cousteau and mr link. So it sounds like there's a little bit of sour grapes. Their report goes on to describe a december nineteen sixty three conference with the navy's bureau of ships where they obtained support for a c. lab now at that conference. They decided that the mine defense laboratory would build a habitat needed to select a location and they had five critique criteria for the selection one was the prospect of good weather too was good visibility. Three was a level bottom for was moderate water. Temperatures at depth and five was the general features of ocean graphic and marine biology biological interest. Now the site that they selected was argus island off of bermuda by march of nineteen sixty four all the appropriate approvals were obtained and they were often running and the operations were supposed to be conducted in the summer of one thousand nine hundred sixty four now. The mine defense laboratory selected an old experimental minesweeping float. Now the report has quite a few pictures and illustrations in it. Unfortunately the pictures are really not that great because of this. Pdf being produced either from a microphone. Show old old dot copiers but the stations are pretty good. Particularly the architectural drawings of c. lab won both the plan view and the cross section views by marched by may nineteen sixty four. C. lab was ready for sea trials off panama city. Florida on may twenty second nineteen sixty four. It was towed out to sea and sank uncontrolled and flooded over half full of seawater. Fortunately there were no injuries. The habitat was lifted. Towed back dried out and ready for another try on may twenty six this time with success. The previous incident was attributed to a misunderstanding of line handling waters by july. They were in bermuda and ready to sink. C. lab on july fourteenth. They again had issues because of the three to five foot swells and the yard patrol boat that they were using just wasn't powerful enough like chief brody said in jaws. I think you're gonna need a bigger boat. Well in this case. It was a crane that they took from bermuda. The reach the report details the adventure of getting c. lab on the bottom but they finally did an after getting everything hooked up and twenty four hour checkout on monday july twentieth. One thousand nine hundred sixty four at seventeen thirty five. That's five thirty five pm for you.

34. Lets talk about save-a-dive kits and Healthways an original scuba equipment provider - burst 6
"Several months ago, I did a segment on voight. One of the original five scuba equipment manufacturers in the United States. As a reminder, those original five were decor. US, divers swim master Voi-, and health ways, and we know that void bought swim master in the early nineteen sixties. Today. I want to continue the discussion on these original five with a look at health ways. My research took me on some interesting twists and turns. A relay what I pieced together. But I'll caution. The things might not been. Things may have been a little bit different than what I present here. First. Let's talk about the founder of health ways. That was Richard Klein. Richard was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, six in Maine. And he enlisted in the marine. Corps at the age of fourteen. Back then I guess you could get away with lying about your age. While he was in the Marines Richard studied calisthenics in bodybuilding. and. When he was discharged, he ended up in Atlantic city acting as a strong man. That's when he was discovered by a paramount pictures executive who brought him out west to the paramount studios where his job was to make. The movie stars Look Fit. While in his job, at Paramount Richard Started, a company called health ways. Hollywood and Nur tagline was America's way to health. The company had a wider range of fitness equipment and early nine thousand nine hundred fifties. They had water sports. Department that included things like Basques spear guns. And Fins and they called the Finns Webbie's. In one thousand, nine, hundred fifty four health ways obtain distribution rights to the LG. Declare regulator. If you WANNA learn more about LG Arpan. There's a great article in one of the old journal of diving histories by I'd liberal shelf. You can go and do some research on that. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, six, Richard Hired, Richard, E. Dick Anderson to establish a scuba equipment department. Diver Dick Anderson is interesting, Pioneer and scuba, and I'll probably have to do a podcast just on his accomplishments. They're pretty extensive. Diver. Dick also brings on Sam Lecoq to help him design house ways own regulator. They introduce their double hose regulator and name Scuba. I guess the copyrighted the name. Scuba I read somewhere that because of this copyright. US divers had to go with the term aqualung. The scuba regulator was produced between nineteen, Fifty, seven and nineteen fifty-nine. During this time both Dick Anderson and Sam la coke had left health ways. Sam Start at sports ways another manufacturer and produced a regulator that he called water lung. The water long. Caused some litigation with US divers because they were using the term aqualung. Don't know how that turned out. By one, thousand, nine, hundred, Fifty, eight Dick Anderson rejoined health ways, and he was the chief engineer of research. By nineteen sixty, the company was producing a new model called Scuba Deluxe. Health wise also developed scuba. Pack Harness. The Scuba Star Scuba air in something called the snark. Air SORTA like a snorkel with a pony bottle on it. By nine, hundred, sixty two. It looked like the company was developing a line for professionals called scuba pro. Well Richard Klein hired Bonin and Gustav Delay To head. Up this line. But. Unfortunately health ways went into bankruptcy on December nineteen, sixty two. And you'll find Dick Bonin and Gustav Della Vella Bought Scuba Pro for one dollar. And started what we now know today as scuba pro. But wait, there's more. And this is where things get a little hard to reconcile. Richard Klein unfortunately died in nineteen, sixty three. But health wage did not. According to Alec Pearce on one of these youtube videos, health ways continue to make regulators for scuba pro. I tried to find out more about the bankruptcy, and it took me to a document from the Small Business Investment Company Program from August one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty three. Near as an entry that shows health ways of having sales of two point, nine million dollars with ninety six employees and a prophet of twenty, one thousand eight hundred dollars. It looks like they got some investment money and statement said they were on the road to profitability and operating in the black. Somewhere along the way health ways was acquired by elden industries in Los Angeles. From what I gather Eldin was a may have been a toy company, and it's really hard to find out information about them. In any event, the last thing I could trace was nineteen seventy-one Scuba Cadillac from health ways that showed it as being a subsidiary of elden. I also read along the way that they sold scuba equipment to sears Kmart nine, thousand, nine hundred seventy S. I wasn't able to actually nail down when health ended. So my journey to find out more about one of these original five US scuba manufacturers provided some fascinating twists and turns and Lake Oj all journeys I passed a few interesting side roads. Some I went down. And others yet to be explored. Hope. You enjoy this look at health ways.
"Today a monster. If you're of a certain age, you might remember the nineteen fifty four movie creature from the Black Lagoon. Here's the plot. A geology expedition in the Amazon uncovers fossilized evidence, a skeletal hand fingers from the Devonian period that provides a direct link between land and sea animals further excavation of. Of the area where the fossil was found turns up nothing the leader. The search is ready to love, but it's thought that thousands of years ago, the part of the embankment, containing the rest of the skeleton fell into the water that was washed downriver broken up by the current. The group discovers at the river empties into a lagoon. The scientists decided to. To take a little longer and unaware that amphibious Gilman has been watching had for the lagoon, and that kill man is taking notice of the beautiful assistant. Will you get the idea? And if you think the plot for the film, the creature from the Black Lagoon came out of the imagination of a writer or perhaps a famous film director. You'd be half right. Right Produce Sir William Allen was attending nine hundred forty one dinner party during the filming of Citizen Kane, in which he played the reporter Thompson. When Mexican cinematographer, Gabriel Figueroa told him about the myth of a race of half fish half, human creatures, Amazon River, Allen, rose. Story notes title the Sea Monster Ten years later using beauty and the beast just inspiration. In December nineteen fifty two Maurice Jim expanded this into a treatment which Harry Essex and Arthur Ross rewrote as the black lagoon. The rest is movie history. The story told to Allen by Mexican cinematographer gave Figaro was based on the legend of Jaka. Ruina buried accounts describe. The arena is being Harry with their heads turned backwards and deformed feet. Could be characterized as seductive and sexually dangerous lure humans into water by taking on human forms when people of the Amazon and community disappear, and do not return such as fishermen husbands in young girls, deception is the ACA Luna had seduced and captured their victims. They abducted victims gradually come to resemble their captor the Yakov Bruno over a period of time I. There is turned to resemble the Conrad. Then their head and feet turn backward wants a full transformation is complete. The human has turned. Turned into a Jaka rhuna transformation to Jaka Ruina is irreversible and a person so transformed may never return to his or her home. I researched this story. I thought it sounded like a lot of other folktales that come from tribes of indigenous people that is until I found a nineteen eighty six account of an American doctor who ventured into the Amazon with his wife and daughter to provide needed medicine and medical treatment to several primitive communities. He described in a log I how his daughter! Daughter was taken by Jaka Luna One day one day she was swimming, so it's she was pulled under and vanished. Nobody was ever recovered grief-stricken. He and his wife returned to the states. They soon separated. It was an auditory years later alone and distraught, but he returned to the Amazon River, whereas daughter had vanished that he saw her again still alive, but it transformed into a mermaid. She had married a yacht, Luna and gain knowledge in becoming healer of the waters. No one ever saw. saw the doctor again. The doctors camp was discovered by a group searching for explorer Percy Fawcett. Who vanished in the Amazon in nineteen, twenty five monster
It's The End Of The World! (Again
"In the village of Giddy Shem Devon England in the eighteenth century lived a woman named Joanna. South caught southpaw became convinced that she had supernatural powers and began selling seals of the Lord essentially tickets to get into heaven which people bought. She declared that she was the woman of the apocalypse as foretold in the Bible and that she would give birth to the new Messiah on October nineteenth eighteen forty one despite the fact that she was sixty four years old. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. We are living through a more uncertain than usual time right now. I wouldn't say it's the end of the world but others might and half history is rife with people who claim to have been told or to worked out when the end of days is coming. The list on Wikipedia is twenty four page downs. And that's really only focusing on Judeo Christian. Prophecies everyone from peasant girls two months to the mathematician who popularized the use of the decimal point. How Theory Cotton Mather? The influential Puritan Minister who played a decisive role in the Salem witch trials proclaimed in sixteen ninety one that Doomsday would occur in sixteen ninety seven basing the date on events that were current to him that he interpreted as fulfillment of Biblical prophecy when sixteen. Ninety-seven passed uneventfully. Mother changed his forecast. First to seventeen o six than seventeen sixteen and finally seventeen seventeen. Mother didn't make any more between seventeen seventeen and his death in seventeen twenty eight but he was still certain that the end was near Jonas Wendell along with other adventist preachers predicted. The Second Coming of Christ would occur between eighteen. Seventy three and eighteen seventy four after the prediction didn't bear out Nelson Bar. You're of follower of Wendell reinterpreted prediction to mean that. Jesus had returned in eighteen. Seventy four but he was invisible that does make it harder to disprove all grant you then. There was mother. Shipton the witch of York a fascinating blend of historical figure and embellished character. Born Ursula South the older and a thunderstorm in a cave in fourteen eighty eight to a teenage mother who refused to name. The father mother Shipton looked every bit like the iconic which would he skin hunched posture. Hooked nose the works. She made a number of predictions all of them in verse like Shakespeare's Weird Sisters in Macbeth. She said to have predicted Henry. The eighths disillusion of the monasteries the great fire of London the reign of Elizabeth I and even possibly the invention of airplanes on the telephone but the first written version of her predictions didn't come out until eighty years after her death and some of the authors have admitted to adding to what she supposedly said. So we're not one hundred percent certain if mother Shipton really said the world to an end shall come in eighteen hundred and eighty one but we can be fairly certain that it didn't the cave in which she was born is now a tourist attraction along with the nearby petrifying well items placed in the well are said to turn to stone. And that's more of a loose interpretation than an outright fable. The water in the well has a very high mineral content and those minerals will attach themselves to anything in the water making. It look like the object is turning to stone. Bona snacked the witches in Macbeth referred to usually as the weird sisters but were originally called the wayward sisters meaning. Good women who lost their way and been seduced by the allure of Magic Doomsday Predictions. Could come from the highest offices in the land. But that didn't make them anymore. True Pope Sylvester the second game pope in nine ninety nine seat with the auspicious-sounding date of the year one thousand looming so Vesta in a number of other Christian leaders foretold the coming of Jesus at the turn of the Millennium and many people believed it like really believed there were riots in the streets. Thousands of Christians fled to the holy city of Jerusalem and many attended what was expected to be particularly interesting midnight. Mass at Saint Peter's Basilica on New Year's Eve when the morning of January first on and it was clear the world had not ended semester and the other Christian leaders revised their predictions. Have you picked up on that trend yet? If Judgment Day hadn't kicked off on the anniversary of Jesus's Birth. It must do on the anniversary of his death. So so Lester. The second declared the world would end in ten thirty three but he was already fifty four years old and sure enough. Didn't have to hear any gainsaying when the apocalypse didn't come the second time because he'd been dead for thirty years a century later pope innocent. The third had a less obvious and markedly less nice reason for his end. Time Prophecy innocent blamed the Muslims Christians and Muslims have had kind of assorted past and innocent viewed Muslims as agents of Satan to his mind. The apocalypse would occur six hundred and sixty six years after the founding of Islam. Which would put it in the year. Twelve eighty four. He too died well before he could see how wrong he was predicting. The end of the world requires perseverance. If at first you don't succeed try try again. You've got to stick with it. Like the founder of the Worldwide Church of God Herbert Armstrong along with his sons Richard and Garner Armstrong picked up quite a following even before claiming that the world would end in nineteen thirty. Six and only members of his church would be saved the Great Depression and the dust bowl probably made it easy for people to believe that our collective ticket was about to get punched Armstrong then turned his sights to nineteen forty-three where the second war to end all wars lent credence to his doomsday claims when life settled into the post war normal Armstrong amended his prediction to Nineteen seventy-two a significant margin of error. People sold all of their possessions to pay for travel to Petra in Jordan. Which most of us know as the Resting Place of the holy grail from the third and Final Indiana Jones. Movie where they would be safe from Roy Moore three which Armstrong said would be all of Europe led by Germany against the US and the UK. World War three did not in fact begin. Nineteen seventy-two or the next mandate of Nineteen seventy-five in December nineteen fifty four Chicago Tribune headline read Dr Warrens of disasters in World Tuesday worst to come in one thousand nine fifty five. He declares the doctor was just passing along the predictions made by Dorothy Martin a fifty four year old housewife from Oak Park Illinois. Martin believed that aliens from the Planet Clarion had beamed messages into her brain informing her that a. Masoud flood would soon destroy the planet. Her prophecies attracted a small group of followers including the doctor who called themselves seekers. Many of the seekers quit. Their jobs. Sold their belongings and removed any medal from their bodies which Martin said would be essential for boarding the alien ship. That would take them away. They gathered at Martin's home on Christmas. Eve Nineteen fifty five sing carols while they waited to be beamed to safety. This wasn't the first time the group had gathered for their exodus. The aliens were supposed to come on December seventeenth but didn't then the eighteenth twenty first and finally the twenty fourth. As the night of Christmas Eve wore on Martin's followers became understandably inpatient finally at four forty five in the morning on Christmas Day Martin announced that God had been so impressed by their actions. He was no longer going to destroy the earth. Nice recovery. Though Martin had few followers their experience has left a lasting legacy. The group had been infiltrated if you will by a small group of psychologists and students from the University of Minnesota led by social psychologist. Leon festinger festinger wrote about the whole experience in when prophecies fail a social and psychological study of a modern group that predicted the destruction of the world. Kind of a lengthy title. But we'll go with it. It was in this book that he began to explore something. You've probably heard of cognitive dissonance. That's when two disparate ideas exist in your head at the same time and you feel uncomfortable until you can find a way to make them fit somehow. Festinger observed cognitive dissonance in the seekers. Who had to repeatedly convince themselves that Martin was right even after seeing with their own is that she wasn't

Who is the author of the book made for each other which is an in-depth behind the scenes? Look at the history the of red carpet fashion so the Academy Awards dates back all the way to the nineteen twenties but the first films are being made as far back as the eighteen ninety s so the movies being produced ladies for over one hundred and twenty years you know. I think we should probably preface this episode by saying this is only intended as an overview of very huge topic like Jain enormous topic. Yeah I mean it's so big that we've chosen to focus almost entirely on the relationship between fashion as as it relates to American Hollywood films and for the most part I mean there will be a few exceptions and even by narrowing our discussion. There are still so many fascinating winning stories and players involved with a subject that it is impossible to cover them all in one episode. And that is why we are bringing you to yes and as you said. Casas is a huge topic and there are many different angles which we could look at the intersections of fashion and film. Historically of course the most obvious one is the depiction of fashion in film and that is fashionable clothing as costume worn by characters in support of the visual narrative of any given plot and this fashionable clothing can be worn both in contemporary films. Those intended to be set within the time in which their audience are living now currently when interviewing them and also period films film set in the past so clothing and fashionable clothing at that is one of the most vital production elements in selling link any given period in history it is very central to the quote unquote look of a specific time and place and we have to give many a costume designer props further further historical accuracy over the years but April. I think you would agree that present day fashion is a pretty powerful force and even the best designers have been guilty of implementing unconsciously or not contemporary beauty and fashion aesthetics into their period costumes. So if you look at any number of the westerns from the nineteen sixties for instance instance set in the late nineteenth century. But I can't even tell you how many heating ladies in these films are costumed with bouffant hairstyles eyeliner. They're so good. You know not to mention that these electric colors of their bustle gowns so fashion in film and we're using the term film today because while the majority of the movies were talking about where filmed on film so fashion and film have been inextricably linked since the earliest days of cinema. The I motion picture films were produced at the end of the nineteenth century by the first decade of the twentieth film production had fast evolved into a mass entertainment industry tree. Hollywood obviously as we all know in Los Angeles California was epicenter and the home to over seventy studios and counting by nineteen fourteen and prior to the advent of film. Theatre was a hugely popular form of spectator entertainment. And it was thanks to this medium that that female audiences had long been accustomed to viewing their favorite theater actresses and the clothes they wore as the latest word and chic and and actresses wore high fashion on an off stage and we'll heralded as fashion icons in newspapers. Fashion Magazines and film would prove no different different with its bevy of Silverscreen starlets who would capture the admiration of millions of women audience goers all across the country so with the film industry fast on the rise in the early twentieth century. We see the debut of the first film Fan Magazines such as photo play and Motion Picture magazine. And both of these magazines presented actresses as this fashion trendsetters. And you WANNA go down a rabbit hole. You can go to media history project dot org forward slash fan magazines because they have a huge archive five of keyword searchable magazines on there. So have a blast so far but it will it will take up an entire afternoon. Photo play even had a regular column dedicated to fashion which often featured full-body photographs of actresses so as to best display their entire gowns printed in black can white though. These photographs were accompanied by text. That really detailed the gowns color and fabric for the enquiring reader actress Norma talmadge was featured so often in the fashion section in a photo play that she was even named fashion editor for a short time in nineteen twenty by emphasizing the dress and appearance of these early film stars. These he's magazines played a pivotal role in establishing film actresses as fashion icons. But you may be wondering who was dressing them today. We're all accustomed to the important role the costume designer and Costume Department and Film and Television Production. Obviously what would Miss Marvelous. Mrs Mazel be without Donna and her talented team of assistance. Cutters fitters Taylor shoppers. dyers agers the list. There are a lot the people helping out on those productions. Let's just say Oh. Yeah but actually in the earliest days of cinema. There was no such thing as a costume designer and thus no costume department dedicated educating to produce in costumes for a specific movie so according to costume designer and historian Deborah Landis in her book dressed century of Hollywood costume design. She's actually written quite extensively on the history of Hollywood design. So you're going to hear her name. Come up quite a bit so according to Deborah Producer Adolph Zuqar and director. D W Griffith were among the first to recognize the importance of and need for the professional costume designer. And this was in the nineteen ten's but we still do not see standardization cassation of the costume designer and department until the nineteen twenties so prior to this actors and actresses were largely expected to provide their own wardrobes for contemporary foams. With many I mean those who could actually afford it. I suppose many of these people work directly with their favorite fashion designers to create their specific onscreen. Looks for instance. Paul Poiret as you all know who we adore and love. He designed the period costumes for acclaimed actress. Sarah Bernhardt in the nineteen twelve French film. The loves of Queen Queen Elizabeth. It does not surprise us at all. That far was among the very first fashion designers to embrace the new medium of film as a way to extend. His influence is an advertise his brand although he would never admit it. Of course big neither would contemporary lady Lucille Duff Gordon. Who designed the gallons for the leading ladies for over twenty films between Nineteen Fourteen and nineteen twenty two starting with the perils of Pauline starring? Pearl White I love that AH film And in April nineteen eighteen vote dedicated to page spread to Lucille designs for actress Clara Campbell Young and the Nineteen nineteen eighteen film. The reason why which was written by Lucille sister the famed novelist turned screenwriter. Eleanor Glynn thanks to there's well known collaborations nations. I mean. Is it any wonder that Motion Picture magazine declared that quote motion picture actresses where the latest modes and they declared this in its September nineteen fourteen issue. The article goes on to say that quote women revel in the style of gown much better in the picture show than she can in the pages of some fashion journal but this brings up a very very interesting point April because we all know how quickly fashion can change and what was in fashion when you're designing and then shooting a film while it might have changed I by the time. The film was released six months to a year later. Case in point Lucille's designs for Clara in the reason why might have been presented by vogue as the latest fashions nineteen eighteen. But I know at least one of those designs came straight from her nineteen seventeen collections. Clair West one of the very first screen credited costume designers address address. This very issue in an interview with women's wear daily in December nineteen nineteen according to her fashionable film costumes reproduced thanks to new fashion forecasting which is fascinating. She goes on to say quote. It is particularly difficult to dress characters for the screen when one considers that the close not only must be up to date but they must be several months head of style and you know by designing for the future Claire and other costume designers designers of this time really consider themselves both costume and fashion desires case in point one month prior women's wear daily had interviewed West about the influence silence of Hollywood on fashion in an article titled Motion Pictures To Create New Fashion Center and at the time West was under a seven year contract with the picture and distribution distrubution company. lasky famous players company. Soon to be known as a name. Some of you may recognize paramount pictures quote as for the role which motion pictures plays plays and fashion resort. In Miss West opinion there is no limit West oversaw the designing and making of costumes for the entire film company. So this is no oh small order and she did this in a three story building devoted entirely to costume production just to give you an idea of the size of this costume. Department West fulltime fulltime team consisted of sixty five women including five flower makers ten designers. Numerous seamstresses to Taylor's staff hairdressers. There's a number of assistance quote in this way said West. We have the ideal conditions under which fashions should be created and created. Is the keyword right here because they were not buying you know off the rat clothing cast for both period and contemporary films. The majority of the clothes seen on the stars in Hollywood films were produced made to measure for them in
Why unlocking the Pensacola shooter's iPhones would unleash a privacy nightmare for iPhone owners
"An interesting story that started at the beginning of the week the fight for privacy is under way again between apple and the FBI after December six shooting at a naval base in Pensacola Florida was deemed an act of terrorism Attorney General bill Barr said that apple wasn't doing enough to help unlock the shooters two phones apple maintains that breaking encryption on one phone could endanger the privacy of all iPhone users so they refused to help although they did release a lot of other data to the FBI for more on this story we spoke to Rosie perper global reporter for business insider so the case from San Bernardino at that happened in twenty fifteen so essentially what happened was apple created an update to its iOS software and basically there were certain data on the phone that was no longer able to be accessed by law enforcement and so you need a passcode in order to get certain things like text messages and photos that's obviously of importance to law enforcement when they're dealing with a shooting case or a terrorism case and so after St Bernard you know they were able to get a hold of the shooters iPhone but unfortunately they couldn't access the data that they were looking for because it was under passcode encryption so at first they tried to crack it themselves but the NSA wasn't able to and so they went directly to apple ask them for help but apple said that creating any sort of hacking software would essentially put the privacy and security of all of its customers at risk because once you have that software available what is that software is used for in the future could potentially put more of their customers at risk an apple really valued his privacy and user privacy of its customers so it kind of refused to do that for the FBI which kind of set this whole feud between the FBI and apple in motion yeah and at the time the FBI sued apple but while all that was happening the FBI was able to contract with a third party to unlock the iPhone there I think it later on senator Dianne Feinstein from California said that the government paid nine hundred thousand dollars to this third party to be able to unlock that phone and then they ended up dropping the lawsuit against apple so it's kind of like a stalemate the FBI got what they wanted so they don't have to proceed with this lawsuit so now we're kind of added again the Attorney General William Barr accuse apple of not really doing enough to help and there's two phones in question here now that they are trying to open up and again the same argument for apple they said we can't do this because if we create a back door this leaves it open to any bad actor to do this to other iPhones obviously in the years since December Dino shooting apple's been able to progress IT security software even further so apple basically said that it's providing the FBI with as much information as they can but there's just still certain information that says if it provides to the FBI that would set a precedent and I think apple standing really firm on this issue I think whether there's some earnestly behind it or whether or not it's apple trying to save face they're really standing firm about not compromising the security of its users so what's gonna happen is unclear at this point apple is in a really complicated spot right now because it's not just apple fighting against the department of justice over something like this they have to contend with a bunch of foreign governments I think Australia passed a law saying they can compel tech companies to undermine their data security India has something the U. K. has something so if apple does this for the department of justice for the FBI then they have to kind of do it for all these other countries or what's worse for a big company like apple that I don't think they want they would have to stop operating in these countries so it's just a really complicated spot and as you mentioned the privacy of their customers is really high on their list it just seems like they can't do this that's kind of the argument that a lot of these rights groups have mentioned in and now with the Pensacola shooting case the American civil liberties union they defended apple and they basically said that if apple was to create this sort of back door software other governments other authoritarian governments might be able to access similar software and what they would use that software for that would be of concern in the future so that's something that they're really defending is this idea that if this software is created at all who gets a hold it and what it's used for in the future it's just basically a slippery slope in apple hasn't closed off the F. B. I. completely they say they won't create this back door for the access to the I. phones but they are giving them a bunch of other stuff I you know I cloud data and some other stuff too right there is certain data that is if you've got your I. cloud set up to your iPhone it can get automatically updated and I can get a stored in the iCloud but that information according to the FBI just isn't enough and what they have there certain gaps of information that they don't have and so they really want to see who the Pensacola shooter was working with and whether he had ties to any sort of major terrorist groups that sort of information is hard to discern from just the information that they have but at the same time apple is cooperating an apple things that it's doing its part so we're back at clash between apple and the FBI in terms of getting access to the data that the FBI thinks it needs and there's a couple of other little complications I think in this case in the Pensacola case the shooter either shot one of the phones or try to damage the phones so there's a question of like you know why can't the FBI just go through another third party and they can create something to get into the phone but a lot of people suspect maybe there was too much physical damage on the phones and maybe that's why they need apples help on this so there's still a lot of questions in play and there's no actual lawsuit or anything happening this time just yet right no not at the moment the FBI is preparing for what it's going to do in the future but at this point they're looking at the same kind of scenario that they were put in back in twenty fifteen to twenty sixteen so it's unclear exactly what's gonna happen in the future no trumps last at apple recently and what's going to happen next I guess we'll kind of mirror what happened in December nineteen okay yes so we'll see Rosie perper global reporter business insider thank you very much for joining us thanks so much for having
From the LGBTQ Vault: Sylvia Rivera & Marsha P. Johnson
"Sixth season of our podcast is focused on LGBT activism in the Post stonewall seventies two of the most prominent trans activists to emerge out of that period were Sylvia Rivera and Marsha p Johnson in one thousand nine hundred seventy the year after the stonewall uprising in New York City's Greenwich Village. The two friends founded street transvestite action revolutionaries or star and set up a barebones refuge in a run down apartment building on the lower east side in Manhattan for street kids much like themselves. They called it star House. In December Nineteen Seventy Liza Cowan and twenty year old reporter for Wbai radio conducted. What we believe is the oldest recorded interview with Sylvia Marsha and other members of star? She is a reel to reel tape recorder and set out to do a story on what was then known as crossdressing. Eventually a single reel containing an edited version of the interview found. Its way into the basement of the lesbian. Her story archives in Brooklyn New York. And that's where making gay histories self-described Archive Rat Brian. Free founded in the spring of two thousand nineteen before we share some of that incredibly rare tape with you. I thought I'd ask Brian about his experience of discovering this long lost interview. And how did you find this tape. Where were you what were you doing so I was looking for audio for the fifth season of making a history for our stonewall season listen and my mission was to find archival audio tapes that were made around nineteen sixty eight to nineteen seventy-one so I went to the LGBT center archives? I went to the New York Public Library and I went to the lesbian. Her story archives in the basement of Lesbian Her story archives. I was going through all of their cassettes for WBAI shows. I didn't find anything thing that reached back that was applicable to what we were looking for but out of the corner of my eye in the basement I saw a box of open. Reel you've you. Which is an older style of audio? Recording then cassettes would be. So what is can you describe. What Open Reel Recording is is you see in the movies or in photographs an actual real of tape. Yes these are the big reels. These are like three inch five inch the seven inch ten inch and I didn't know what was in this box when I saw it but I went upstairs to the volunteer archivist. I Rachel Gordon and I asked her if I could go through it and right there in the middle of the box. I pulled out this recording that was labeled star. I was afraid to open at because some of these tapes. They're so fragile when they're fifty Sixty seventy years old. They are so fragile that you can destroy them and I know how difficult it is to get archival material surrounding star. Yeah so what did you when you saw this. Besides being afraid that you would you could possibly damage the tape I mean it's almost like finding the holy we grow. You know you WANNA listen to it immediately when you find a tape like that and you can't why couldn't you just play it. Well for one there are some tapes that as you play. They will erase when they're fifty years old. So you will listen to it but nobody else will. So if you WANNA have a tape digitize like that what do you do. We took the tape to a studio in Harlem called Old Swan Studios that specializes in this type of digitisation. I took so much care when I took it out of that building I I was so afraid of damaging it it was like I had ten thousand dollars in my backpack and couldn't let anyone near it so I arrived at Swansea in Harlem and Robert. The sound engineer started rewinding the tape and when he did every single manual edit snapped. Oh my so. This is an edited. This was an that was done. That was then edited. And and and how do they edit tape. Well they had to take it physically and slice it and then with adhesive give glue at packed together so each and every time it hit one of these physical edits it would snap which for me was terrifying. But for him was just run of the mill he would just take the two ends reapply adhesive and keep rewinding it once he rebounded. What did he do next? Well he was kind enough to let me sit in the studio and listen to it as he played it for the first time and I knew I was listening to something very special. What made it special special for me? Because they're not just talking about the organization that they created they're also talking about their lives and they're talking about how they see the world around them and how they see gender. It's very personal. They're not altering the same line. What did you take away from hearing that recording? I think it reminded me of how young everyone was. Then I think the March Johnson and Sylvia Rivera that I've grown accustomed to. They were older by at the time. the film that I've seen of them the video that I've seen of them the recordings that I've listened to from them. They had more time under their belt. And this it was it was like they were freshly ride in New York and just letting it all about the quality of tape. You're about to hear in this remarkable and far-ranging conversation is a bit uneven. In addition to a snippet of Jefferson an airplane. You'll also notice hissing in the background. During part of the discussion anyone who has ever lived in an Old New York City apartment will recognize that sound. It's coming coming from faulty valve of esteem heat radiator. The first person to speak is nineteen year old Sylvia Rivera. The second is someone named Victor and the third is Marcia Johnson who was twenty five at the time before my mother passed away three years my mother used to Jesmyn Golf Clubs and my mother. My grandmother kept on one little blouses and girls stocks of about six seven years old. Before if I wouldn't start addressing boys 'cause during that period that's when I discovered my homosexuality was like you know watching television and placed in myself and the role of the female or just pricing myself As another there's another boy in the Mail on demand was praying such a fantastic love role in the television. And and when I left home at eleven was really when I went into transparent system and make hustling speech and the game against experiences. DIFFERENT THAN SYLVIA'S I. I didn't know secretly because My mother would catch me. She would forbid it. And by the time I was five years old I knew enough that Do these things secretly So I used to and no one was around to put on a and wear women's clothes close. I can get my hands on but otherwise I grew up quite masculine. I went to school. I played baseball. I went to college so and the beard and was the revolutionary did time in jail for Pacifist demonstrations and and Just recently I I decided what's You know why not wear the clothes. I prefer to wear what I was. I was the time I was living a masculine role that I didn't really prefer at least I didn't prefer to do it. Permanent preferred the times to be feminine And women's Lib people Feel that the women are forced to take certain roles which are unacceptable to them and they want to break out no. I've often felt the same way about being a man that I've been forced to take certain roles number one something as unimportant as the clothes I have to wear men's restrictions. Men's dress are much more severe than the restrictions on women's dress of men are forced to look a certain way and I didn't want to look that way then then of course there's a man has to be tough. He has to have responsibility to take care of people. You know suppose I wanted to be petted or I wanted to be taken care of. As I was growing up I met a lot of men. They never pale to me to my sexually. I used to try and keep away from because my hometown. You mistakes where you were out of it and they recall you all kinds of names And then when I first came in York seventeen years old that's when I started getting kind of invest breath more like a transvestite. I started out with makeup in nineteen sixty three nine thousand nine hundred sixty four And in one thousand nine hundred sixty five. I was coming out more and I was still wearing make up but I was still going to jail just wearing doing makeup in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine. I started wearing female attire full-time usually I wear dress every day of the week. I I just don't put on much makeup anything until after the dog because address too much attention if we make in the daytime they might think that I was a male. Al But if I were a little makeup they think I'm a female and he's right on I and if I will not make it night they automatically know female female they really can tell the difference about me because I'm on my way to be.

Tear Down This Wall: Tipping Points
"This first episode of a four part series marking the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. We examine the conventional wisdom that the I cracks in it appeared a long way away in a ruinous war in Afghanistan malfunctioning nuclear plant in Ukraine. This is the foreign desk. It's partially about the Aghanistan. But it's partially more about the kind of discussions people are having about institutions inside which you weren't supposed to look so the military leterrier was one of those. The military was sacred military defeated the Nazis. The military was the defender of the Soviet order. And suddenly you have very public discussions about that was a little risque at the extensive research. Shaw it was a bizarre situation where Cold War was still going on and foreign governments the governments of the NATO countries that were warning me and people around me on how I should behave and protect ourselves in our own Goldman and I saw somebody. Reading is best German newspaper bid side and I said to my at my partner into Cau- aw look somebody reading side and it was really something extraordinary and immediately drove to British and really really it has become commonplace to compare the Soviet Union's invasion of Afghanistan John in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine to the United States long misadventure in Vietnam which had only ended for years beforehand. Both was exacted. A terrible ribble cost in lives and money abroad both undermined faith in government at home and both ended in humiliation but was the confrontation between the Red Army and Afghan Mujahideen armed with American weapons really as is often suggested the climactic battle of the Cold War. This was Leonard. Leonard Brezhnev's Soviet leader at the time when invading Afghanistan still seemed like a good idea. Would the party today strongly tastes the following principle fully words. I'm evaluates the unfolding situation and in consultation with the government of the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan Ghanistan the Soviet leadership taken the following decision which I am officially announcing today. Kalinowski is a professor first of Eastern European studies at the University of Amsterdam and the author of along good by the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan. Tamie picks up the story story in March nineteen seventy-nine there's an uprising in the city of Herat and the Afghanistan's socialist who are in power. Ask them to intervene. Intervene and the and the Soviets think about it and basically say no and if you look at why they say no. It's quite interesting. Because they are quite aware that it's GonNa make relations with the West more difficult it's GonNa make relations with the Soviet Union's allies in the developing world problematic. They're worried about as they put having to fight the Afghan population and so on so they actually reject the idea march. I think what happens. By December is that they lose hope of the the government in Kabul actually being able to control the situation without Soviet help the fact that the communists are sort of killing each other but I think what really worries them is that a CIA can take advantage of the broad background to that of course is they're looking at deteriorating relations relations with the US already they're looking at the revolution in Iran. They're thinking okay you know. The Americans are getting beaten in Iran. They're going to try to look for a way to compensate. They're they're going to do that in Afghanistan so basically I think what happens by December nineteen seventy-nine as they think they have no other choice unlike the US in Vietnam the USA in Afghanistan was not troubled by a free press asking questions but not even the USSR could hide everything forever. We've had this justification for the the last six seven years about why we're in there. We can't just pull out right. We have to explain to people buyer pulling out now. Was it doing damage to the Soviets. Sure they were losing people will and they were spending money on it. But proportional to how large the Soviet military is and the kind of resources that it's used to spending. It's actually fairly small. I I think the bigger issue for Gorbachev one is that it's not improving especially by nineteen eighty six eighty seven. He's convinced that it's not going to get better and to is that. He sees that is an obstacle to better relations with other countries with countries in the Middle East and awesome first and foremost of course the United States. And that's as big a

"December nineteen fifty and American troops are stationed across a pretty a pretty thin line of four hundred mile line in North Korea. This area adjacent to the Chosin reservoir would become one of the biggest challenges for American fighting forces. I think going all the way back to. Valley Forge and and Gettysburg the challenges were immense and key to this was the performance. Of of a number of of US army infantry and also marines. The battle of the frozen. Chosin late November nineteen fifty Hampton sides has a brand new book out. It is phenomenal on desperate ground the marines at the reservoir, the Korean wars greatest battle and he joins us. Now. A happy Veterans Day to all of our veterans, especially those Korean war veterans who are in our listening area here in San Diego. Hampton, welcome to the show. Thanks for having me on. It's good to have you here. So tell us tell us about the order of battle here in a radio friendly way. Because obviously, we don't have maps we don't have charts. You don't have any of that sort of stuff, but it is nine thousand nine hundred fifty it is November US troops have advanced in the North Korea. And they are about to confront what about three hundred and fifty thousand Chinese troops coming down upon the Madame Manchuria. Yeah. Overwhelming numbers of Chinese and they have come across secretly at first. And they're experts at camouflage they moved only at night and very difficult to just two spot in the air, but eventually our troops, and particularly the men of the first marine division that had begun to capture in skirmishes, some Chinese troops and interrogated them, and it became clear that they were there in large numbers. They were very forthcoming about who. They were where they were from somehow this intelligence when it got up to general McArthur in Tokyo, and his lieutenants, they just didn't want to believe this. They, you know, they said these are just mall in tears. They're rogue elements. Don't worry about these guys. And it really was one of our great intelligence failures. I think leadership failures I I know that MacArthur as his following people who love him. But man, I tell you I. I did not find a single marine who I interviewed who had kind things to say about about MacArthur because he put them in this impossible situation. This reservoir this frozen lake up in the mountains of North Korea where they were completely surrounded by over in this area of the battlefield over a hundred and twenty thousand Chinese soldiers and only thirteen thousand marine so a trap that Mao. And his is generals had expertly set. Tell us about the home by Christmas offensive that that MacArthur wanted to launch through the Eighth Army. Yeah. Well, you know, I said maybe the world would be over thanksgiving. And then he. Shortly after that said well won't be thanksgiving. But we'll be home by Christmas. And the idea was to get our troops. All the way to the Yellow River, which is the border with China Ventura and get the world with quickly and make all of Korea. You know, one one country, which is of course, what it should have been you know, Korea should never have been separated in the first place that is that is one of the great tragedies of the post war sort of carving up of of the spoils of the Japanese empire is one country. It's one culture. It's one language should never happen. And of course, MacArthur's goal of reuniting the country was was a good one. But he he seemed to want to ignore the very very compelling reality that the Chinese were going to intervene in huge numbers. And he also seemed to want to ignore one other factor, and that was the descent of winter in North Korea. Just brutal. And you know, it's a bit like, you know, March of folly like Napoleon going into Russia dry winter you just can't fight in those kinds of conditions. It's it'll just stop an army and its tracks thirty five below zero in the NFC about eighty five percent of these marines. And the army guys who were also there on the east side of the reservoir suffered from very serious cross by many died, and then he lost his fingers and toes and hands and feet. I just brutal conditions is brutal as any ever point to an American military history. So that was the third combat. Yeah. The Chinese the American old man winter. Well, you also have as you mentioned you have big personalities involved in as I mean, you have MacArthur directing us from Tokyo. But then you've got Major General Edward almond Edward, Don. Who's who's there? And he sees what's happening. Pretty quickly doesn't it? It starts to set in that. He is he is going to be up against it. Yeah. Well, he sees it. Although he is kind of MacArthur's right hand, man. And you have to sort of reinterpret everything that he seems. In a way that McCarthy will like me, MRs MacArthur near the end of his career, just just Bangor, and and I kind of had surrounded himself with with yes-men almond was certainly capable commander. But kind of was an extension of MacArthur. Then then you get General Smith who was you know, he's a real hero of of of my book and of the Marine Corps. He is an underrated general who kind of solve this this coming days and weeks before it actually did and began to take a lot of precautions to protect his division and and to protect their lives, including building an airfield a big airfield off in the middle of nowhere in this in this wilderness, where no air filled with ordinarily be but big enough to bring in huge transport planes and bring out the huge numbers of casualties and over four thousand casualties were flown out of there in the end. So General Smith is is rightly revered by the morning Cornell, and this data a battle Chosin reservoir, celebrated and studied by the marines, and and mainly because what it ended up being after they regrouped, and you know, hatched a plan. Dan to get out of there. It was a fighting withdrawal a organize well choreographed fighting withdrawal from might say a retrieve right marine. Stop us that work on the attacking in another direction. But. This kind of numerous is really the most difficult maneuver in warfare to to collapse or enclaves onto each other. As you move through mountains with artillery and with close air support patrols up on the ridge lines is this very complicated thing with so many moving parts and the executed it brilliantly, and they did March their way to the she and they got out of this trap. So that's why it celebrates visiting visiting with with Hampton sides. Who's got a great new book out get this? It's perfect for this time, especially for the holidays on desperate ground the marines at the reservoir and the Korean Moore's greatest battle the old professor is what they called Oliver Smith. And he's an interesting person. He's this larger than life. He's like a guy you would see in a movie, you could you could see him playing somebody playing him in a film. He's he's a veteran of a number of conflicts, not the least of which is the battle of Peleliu in World War Two. And also the battle of Okinawa. He's a guy who understands what it's gonna take that you. You're gonna have to be daring that you're going to have to risk. But he also understands at the end of the day, you're relying on seventeen year olds from Oklahoma with a machine gun trying to trying to fight your way out of this thing, you're relying on on groups of men and boys who are suddenly seeing new new commands established because the captains and the sergeants are being killed every night. I mean, this is this is literally hell on earth. Yeah. Well, certainly Peleliu and Okinawa were we're just hellacious battles. And he was someone who was acutely aware. General Smith was of the human cost of war. You know, like sometimes it put men in each situations. And they and they fight bravely. But maybe there was an strategic value to that endeavor. That's sort of what happened at Peleliu in the end because the strategy that kind of island hopping campaign of polo, which was Paul. Occurred of the kind of change, and they were taking airfield that they didn't necessarily need to take. Right. So he was he was seeing this Chosin reservoir situation. Going going into the teeth of winter. Yup. We're surrounded by Chinese were getting strung out on this narrow mountainous road, and which is in this perfect ambush country, and he began to smell smell a rat. It was a very cautious man, very methodical. He graduated from Berkeley fluent in French. He. Macho you know, gung ho marine at least on the surface. He was tough as nails. But you know, he was also famous for his. For one one example, he cultivated roses and with an expert gardener. They call him the professor because he just read the classics incessantly, and you know, new military history. And you know, he kept saying, you know, like like Napoleon going into Russia here. This is this is like a, you know a bridge too far. This is this is this is a dangerous situation. The battle of the bulge camping, and it proved to be very prescient and had he not had these precautions like airfield that he came up with. I think the first marine division could very well have been annihilated, and that would've been devastating on all kinds of levels because it will probably a finest fighting force that we had coming out of World War Two. So it's an amazing battle and also won it produced more. He's the most decorated battle in American history in terms of, you know, congressional medal of honor. And and other high honors for for valor. And for. Sacrificed so appropriate battle to be talking about him veterans. Absolutely Hampton sides joins us here on Twitter will show is his latest book is on desperate ground about the battle to chosen. Can I hold you over one more segment? I I have a question. I wanna I wanna posit this question. Let you think about it during the break if you got time. Okay. Okay. Here's the question. The question is this. Look, we we know these communist regimes study a lot they study history. They study history of successful insurgencies in the ways they fight. And I'm wondering if you can if you can dive into this on the way back, and it's did did say ho Chee, man. And the Vietnamese ended the other folks did they go to school and this kind of warfare when it came to things like the tat offensive in the city way and denying and things like that where we saw surprise attacks for lack of a better word and. The ability of these communist insurgents to get in here, and do this can I hold you over for that? Okay. Okay. Terrific is Hampton sides. He's gonna stick around.

"Hi, I'm Seth Abramovitch senior writer at the Hollywood reporter. And I'd like to welcome you to it happened in Hollywood. It's a new podcast. I'll be hosting with the help of my good friend. Chip pope. Hi there. That's me. I'm chip I'm a TV writer and a pop culture enthusiasts in each episode. We're going to be taking a journey backwards and time and revisiting some of the wildest chapters in Hollywood history iconic films zeitgeist TV shows infamous lawbreakers and just the random weirdness that color the place. We call LA La Land. Yes. And we think that you'll find in Hollywood the more things change the more. They stay the same. And that's what this show is about on each episode. We're going to be going to a key figure in whatever topic recovering and interviewing them. And then after the fact Seth, and I will comment on those prerecorded interviews, so let's get right to it. Welcome to the first episode of Hollywood. All right. Let's do some scene setting its December nineteen seventy three Richard Nixon one month before told a room full of reporters in Orlando, Florida. I am not a crook. Well, I'm not a crook. And in movie theaters. Cross the nation. Robert Redford, Paul Newman were playing crooks in a blockbuster hit called the sting. Then this thirty eight year old wonder canned Billy freed Ken comes along riding high. Having just won the Oscar for the French connection in seventy two. I love that. He's thirty eight year old wonderboy because the industry in nineteen seventy three's run by nine year olds he's young blood at thirty eight. He is he's whippersnapper and -ticipant for his chosen follow picture to French connection is at a fever pitch. His choice was the exercise. I now this was a big budget adaptation of smash hit novel about a little girl who gets possessed by the devil. The film was plagued by infighting delays. It went way over budget. He acted kind of crazy firing people left. And right people thought there was a curse on it yet. There was supposedly occurs. And there was all kinds of reports that this thing is going to be disaster. But when it finally came out, it became the all-time record breaking movie from Warner Brothers at the box office and went on to become one of the most admired and imitated horror films of all time. It's interesting that you should mention the sting because that was just like nostalgic entertainment that took place in the thirties. Whereas the exorcist was very edgy movie. Very hard are a hard arm and pretty much almost an ex. I mean, this is like a cold bucket. A holy water in the face of a pew Besson. Girl. I mean, even the Hollywood reporter this very publications seemed genuinely shocked by it in its review, they called it, quote, an abomination, and quote, and they call it the wretched excess of the year, but at the same time, they also suggested that it may be the most frightening movie ever made and forty five years later, it's still pretty much lays claim to that title of scariest movie ever made this week's special guest. We have the man responsible for making it. That's right director, William freakin. What throw the talk to this guy? He was great. He was absolutely wonderful. I didn't know what to expect. I thought he might be lawf- the wall get some of the films. He's made forget his age eighty two. I didn't know what we were going to get. But he was such a nice guy was just a thrill to sit at the feet of a master filmmaker.
