"Of really putting cocaine. Joe welcome to fever dream dreams. Thank you so much for being with us on the pod today. We're excited you. How you do in jail when after that introduction. I can't tell you how on bordering ecstatic. Can you follow me around like you. Can you tell it to my be great mother. You couldn't afford me. i love it. Thank you very much for your Your your kudos kind. Words appreciate thank you so much for being here and first thing we want to talk to you about. Was you have just put out a movie in theaters and gone through this marketing campaign for a movie that just got a wide release. During the corona virus health scape that is currently throttling obviously the entire country arguably the entire world. but also it's made it very hard for hollywood to figure out how to make things profitable of course unless it is a gigantic morville sequel of sorts. Can you tell us a little bit about what went into making that actually putting out this movie wild. The virus is still ravaging. The country in hundreds of bodies are still piling up every day. I mean again in light of extraordinary tragedy. Styling were experiencing nationally but globally. It's a little insensitive. I think that you know to to kind of simply talk about the rigors of filmmaking. When it's not really but again against the pandemic and against what kind of pose i think again i think our our instinct is always trying to return to some sense of normalcy in some sort of we wanna be centered and i think part of getting back to work aided in that and i think but again going into that which amounted to kind of guerilla warfare. Because you're we used a group from doctors without borders kind of broken off. That saw the the need the way that mercenaries legionnaires will see. This will see the need for something and rush into the into the fray and so it was a very fraught process. Because they had they're used to going in and shutting down ebola outbreaks not working on a film set and there's a certain decorum and a certain protocol and they weren't aware of these things created a lot of problems a lot of screaming matches and a lot of hurt feelings a lot of tears and it was difficult and it was abbreviated a lot of ways. Because we couldn't. I didn't have the normal. You know it's very difficult to direct when your face is covered in your eyes or shield. Because you're the natural kind of expressive range that you might depict or display for an actor is limited. So there's little things like that and then just again just running headlong the safety protocols in the kind of the stuff that was being forced upon everyone understood and then just the amount of false positives was really really frustrating because it took people offline that were perfectly healthy and again. This is not to aid in the whole ridiculous antibac- cer- anti mask idiocy. That's completely subsume this country but there was great frustration with not having those tests be a consistent they could have been. What group was this that you're describing as medical mercenaries who was a doctorswithoutborders offshoot. Is this something in the studio sends to films at sort. This is something we were working on. Other trier film called leo from toledo which is kind of a crime thriller that we're gonna shoot in puerto rico and one of these producers had put this group together and was looking to almost patent the use of this particular playbook this kind of schematic for how you were going to battle krona virus onset. So he kind of he was making money off. Basically licensing this group to us. And i just found them to be wildly obnoxious in road and not necessarily that good at what they were doing. Because there's a lot of news we say not as we do. They weren't wearing masks all the time they were kind of and yet very kind of would chastise Take umbrage smallest little slights. And how does that look like. You're trying to direct frank grillo and gerard butler during a big shoot-em-up scene and then there's almost like a medical mercenary group almost in essence co directing. You at the moment. How did that work on the set while it was difficult. Because i told you know we. There's a couple one. Mass bras might director photography. Who's a fiery spaniard to say. The least did not appreciate them encroaching on his process and he let him no uncertain terms. And i did have a moment of. I'm not a yeller screamer. I don't do the the michael bay kind of tear people's heads off style of directing. I'm reasonably chill. But they. Until i feel like okay now you just take a piss i. We're not gonna do this. I need to be able to communicate with these people. And i need to be to direct them. And you're now interfering in that. And i'm me fully masked i wear within three feet of this person when they're also mass is not going to. We're not going to spread the contagion. And i just felt that they were getting a little now. They're costing us time. And that's the biggest sin you can commit on a film set is when you start burning time because it means you're either lazy incompetent or a combination of the two and it's it's okay to a lot of bigwig hollywood Isn't the big time. One of the biggest crimes you can commit is losing money. What do i do that is the thing that is the opens the spigot on what you just said. Lost time is the opposite. Reaction is the loss of money. And that's when you start losing days you start going behind. Nothing is more costly than the day costs on a movie. It could arrange some of the marvel films have three or four million dollar a day day costs extraordinary sue. Joe cops out this come out. Looks like a great shootout. We got gerard butler. We got frank grillo in a jail here. And i guess one thing i appreciate is. This does not look like your typical cova movie. This does not look like a guy taking a phone call for two hours. What can people expect from this movie. I mean it looks like it's got a lot of energy it does know. It's kind of this contained thriller. And it's very much a throwback kind of i was again you mentioned Swing you mentioned. Freakin white absolutely adore. You know robert. Rich don siegel. Sam peckinpah those types of kinda seventies seventies. Joseph sargent with taking a pelham one two three. I really wanted to make that kind of moving. In fact just repurpose the theme for magnum force at the beginning of cop shop. So that's From this is we just did it. Because i just love that vibe in the weight kind of immersed you into that in that world this kind of you're not quite sure what timeframe is but kind of like when you saw controlled men. There's only one indication that movie takes place in one thousand nine hundred eighty which is when our talks about the quarter from nineteen fifty-eight traveling twenty two years to be here which i thought was such a brilliant conceded that film you had no idea that was a period film. It was so it was kind of it was kind of i. Wanna make this kind of immersive seventies. A cop movie dirty harry which which i love and kind of unapologetically that type of film contract something that you and i talked about before. Joe is that you in a weird way. At least in my opinion is one of hollywood's more curiously political action film makers of the past couple of decades. Smokin aces stars. Guys like ray. Liotta and ryan reynolds. What a lot of people didn't realize when it came out during the bush era is that it's an anti iraq war movie but that kind of courses through its veins and orpington surface. The a t. Movie with in and bradley. Cooper is obviously rather anti state and anti cia abuses. So i can kind of guess what your political and ideological perspectives were on the past. Five years or so. It doesn't take a genius to sort of tease that out. But what affected have on your creative process in terms of making an action movie over these past five years. Because i got say when i followed you work over the during the trump presidency. I didn't see a lot of injection of your perspective on what this presidency in. This era of politics meant for the country. I think swin. It's kind of a. I didn't feel the need to wallow in the despair and misery that all of us i think were suffering from on a day-to-day basis to the point. Where it was. I mean those last two years. Ptsd you know it's like there was no outrage set. That trump could shatter that record the very next day and i thought to kind of in this is why the instagram became kind of an outlet to just kind of blow my feelings on on that way but i certainly thought spending a and a half of my life you know kind of enunciating. What was already being blasted. Your bullhorn would not have been mentally or creatively. The best place for me to be so i think it became very became more of a..

"And those are just two don siegel directed by don siegel in the same year. I know what you think. The fires six shots so only five tell you the truth and all this excitement i kind of lost track myself but the forty four magnum the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow your head clean off. Get to ask yourself one question. Do i feel lucky. do you punk. And if dirty harry is all these potency as exemplified by that big gun you know the point to everybody feel lucky You know make day gun mean the beguiled is about and being castrated you know. He's sort of systematically splayed out cut up his his his legs cut off a man in a hot hothouse women and again the narcissism of every woman in the civil war era wants to jump clint. Which fair enough it gets leveraged against his humiliation is complete humiliation and come up and defeat. You know i mean. It's a movie where he really never kind of has the upper hand and the whole film in the beguiled is kind of the spectacle of his. You know his abasement. And that's why when coppola remade it. She sophie a couple of remakes. The guy with a lot of smarts. And a lotta hindsight and a lot of skill and a clear subversive agenda and colin. Farrell's a great actor in some ways. More resourceful after the it but it doesn't work it only works. If it's clint on the table you know even before. It's like late clinton in nineteen seventy-one dirty harry. It's taken apart and killed by a bunch of women is Pretty amazing even pairing with play misty for me in the same year. There's a woman who wants to cut. Clint eastwood up. And in terms of segel's filmmaking the guy was just a a pro. there's a reason that eastwood co dedicated unforgiven to him an sergio. Leoni siegel is simple. Where is florid you know siegel is left to right leonis all detours loggers and whatever else but He taught you know quinta lot. He used him as a star but as well as any as any filmmaker did. And i'm pretty sure everyone listening to this. Podcast seen dirty harry. If you haven't seen the beguiled. I don't know what's service it's on but it's amazing and You should watch it. Now pray film. I like the coppola remake as well. Actually it's a little bit of a subversion of the story but not too much Chris why don't you give us your number three which is also in the nineties cannon. Yeah and it's probably. I mean along with unforgiven. My my real life kind of introduction to clint eastwood was in the line of fire which is directed by wolfgang petersen. And i think is the best acting eastwood's overdone. Maybe it's kind of silly. And maybe. I'm giving malkovich way too much credit in my mind but i like when i last watched this movie i was rather blown away by the gentleness of eastwood's performance. This is a broken down. Secret service.

"In the same universes fred astaire but at least he's nodding to master while gingerly stepping downstairs during this number. Then let's go to the nightmares. We heard it again at the top of the show. That tunnel of terraced sequence. It's kinda like this. Speaking of kubrick up pip squeak version of two thousand one stargate trip. I mean i don't know if jessica had seen this at the same age which might have been what i had seen it. She would have been much less terrified than a clockwork orange. I mean this was really traumatic. The first time. I went through the tunnel of terror with gene wilder. Would like are those moments though. Where he combines these two these two elements. Let's go back to pure magic. He sweetly plays at one point with one of the kids hair. Kind of tossing the hair affectionately and then at the very end he yanks out that causes the kid to flint. And that's it. That is his willy. Wonka you know you. He's he's scary. He's unpredictable now as a film overall aside from wilder. This is my favorite kind of children's movie. It's unpatriotic ising. It's a little bit dangerous It leaves kids not so much having learned a lesson though. Yeah i mean to your point atom about it not being that complicated it takes broad swipe at baratz and shows them. You better behave but really. It's mostly an introduction for kids to how delightfully weird. The movies can be so for me. It's the best movie of nineteen seventy one. I love adam absolutely love that you've got it at number two. I would not have guessed this. So i can't wait to hear why well i mean other than the wizard of oz. I don't know that there's a movie. I've seen more times and i'm just going kid being a kid. It coming on tv or having early vhs tapes taped off the tv and just watching it constantly as a family and also on my own. I am going to share this comment though from patrick in our poll question. Who said i can't say that these selections are wrong. Sir wrong. I vote since i've not seen them all. But i know that people ravon about mcdowell singing in the rain etc etc and gene hackman's amazing performances cetera et cetera or. The last picture shows perfect score on rotten tomatoes etc etc. But i suggest you revise your film spotting contracts to include section thirty-seven b. Which should stay that any best movie list. From nine hundred seventy one would include one with the lead performance with the different gene. It's all their black and white actually color clear as crystal. If you wanna view paradise willie wonka and the chocolate factory would be the one from nineteen seventy one to watch. Good day sir. That was good. You get you finally got to. While they're the on there so i did. I got a little bit of it in a little bit of it. But i just thought that was too good not to share. Here's also listener. Darren gun he says. I believe it's one of the best book to movie adaptations one of the best musicals and one of the best examples of fantasy within a reality. It's funny it's magical scary and it's sweet and it's got a brilliantly maniacal gene wilder at its centre backing up your point josh. It's easily the movie. I've seen more times than any other. It was on repeat as a kid. And it's likely the movie. I quote most frequently. It's not a guilty pleasure and it's not nostalgia it's the best movie of nineteen seventy-one and i love that because it does make me think about how new viewers take two willie wonka and the chocolate factory. I don't know that i've ever had a conversation with someone who was our age josh or even in their twenties or thirties who just saw it recently for the first time that said i don't think it's greatness is tied to nostalgia for me nor do i see it as a guilty pleasure. Every time i have revisited maybe watched it with my kids. It's absolutely held up because of wilders performance because even that production design where if you think about the bar they had to clear where they had to bring this magical place to live. It had to seem to us as kids and even to us now. Believably like paradise like a place that we could only imagine and we would wanna stay forever. I think they absolutely pull it off. The songs are all really good. Yeah that tunnel of terror. That's that's maybe croupier. Then anything in a clockwork orange. And i'm going say jessica really ra might be. It really terrified me as a kid. But in a good way and i liked that it confounded me a little bit there. It can foundered me a little bit too even as a kid and this is something i like about it now is adult when i look back on that whole sequence with charlie in the end of the film and how it seems like. He's not going to win the prize but then eventually does. I like that charlie screws up. He does break the rules then that he does the same wrong thing. That all the other kids do of course. There is a significant difference in the nature of his transgression versus theirs and that there's something very uplifting sentimental about uplifting no pun intended in them taking the fizzy lifting drinks sort of elevate themselves above their position. Grandpa joe and charlie just kind of want of experience life kind of floating above it all for a little bit right. That makes sense. We'd get the the kind of metaphor there whereas all the other kids are just about their own personal satisfaction and gratification. But what really matters isn't that he is perfectly obedient and authority abiding. How would that make any sense. Where would want a be if that's how he was. That's how he went through. It's it's that he wasn't corruptible. And i think that i think that that the fact that he does make a mistake but that he can't be bought that his his soul is intact to quote al pacino from san of a woman is. What makes charlie such an interesting figure and someone who as a kid whether we really knew it or not was someone we probably felt like. We wanted to emulate a little bit but again he was human. You know he. He had disappointment when he when he doesn't get. The golden ticket is humble and sweden z. Might be i think we we all probably kids ourself in him a little bit and just like him. There's no way we would have been able to avoid at some point not indulging in the fantasy opportunities that walkers factory provided yet and think about going back to the production design you know almost all of that had to be entirely practical sorts of checks and sats and it it just it holds up in that wonderfully tactile way that you know we. Just don't get any more in so many of our movies Those are our top films of nineteen seventy-one. I'm guessing you have the few honorable mentions josh. What would you like to name here. Yeah i can. I can round out my top ten I this might be a cheat you know. Tv movie but spielberg's duel is fantastic. And i have it at number six. Ah jacques tati film that. I watched this was part of homework for the first time. Traffic really thought oh. This is going to bump. I'm such a fan of his. This is going to bump up into my top five and it's great. I mean i've got at number seven here on my list but couldn't quite knock out any of the others that i had up there lucas's thx. Eleven thirty eight. I haven't number eight. Two lane blacktop. More homework here monte. Helman's film what an experience. I mean so pure just the you know the the pure experience of the road trip there And then the beguiled starring eastwood. Dirty harry don siegel in this. Yet don siegel again. I think they they pulled this off.

"Back. We're still on Earth to with Quentin Tarantino. His book is once upon a time in Hollywood as you started talking about Sharon Tate, though I mean, there's a section in the book that may be my favorite section, the Hollywood or bust section, really, In terms of the all things we're talking about intimacy and self awareness and an agreement with loneliness and this idea of how much information you want to let out about yourself. All these things that are somatic throughout the book all come to play in that section. It is kind of interesting that the two characters are very friendly with each other, but they're both withholding certain information because they don't want to be stuck with the other to the other one. That chapter is almost always It could be its own movie. Yeah, no, it could be a the scenes at work that are tied to the narrative but aren't necessarily a bone connected to the narrative. Those are probably the some of the more interesting chapters in the book because they play like little short story chapters but would characters you know, and it's going in the same direction of the movie. Uh, that one in particularly I like because just his name is a sweetie, which actually is the my mother's father's name. Which really cool name, actually remember her grandfather? I can't remember. But to me that characters Junior Bonner, it's Junior Bonner is you're here. You're basically describing like Steve McQueen continue like he's on the way to the Prescott, Arizona. He's little literally on his wage of the movie. Junior Bonner. He's on his way to Prescott. Arizona Rodeo. Uh, no. I talked about the truth. Well, listen, and the way you described it as a way, McQueen looked engineer Bonner, So it's like If she were playing in the getaway, and and they had met what that might have been like, But you realize they don't belong together. I'm going apart. Absolutely, uh, and that That's why I was moving because it's so much about archetype of who these people are me this. It's my favorite chapter in the entire book for that reason. Oh, wow, That's interesting. We haven't talked about it, but, uh, Elvis was one of the first people to read the book because the thing about it was I was writing an hour's about like maybe four or five chapters into it, but I wasn't telling anybody except for my wife what I was doing. And it was just kind of writing by myself. No one was waiting for it. I didn't tell anybody. I'm turning it into a book. And then I finally decided, so this just doesn't stay a weird, morbid hobby. For me. Let me start sending a couple chapters out to my friends and have them read a couple and that would get me excited about what they've read about what they're reading, and that would get me excited about writing more chapters for them to read more. And so I sent it out to my two agents. My film agent in my, um, literary agent, I said, started sending chapters out to you and I sent chapters after David Heymann, the producer, and Roger Avery I co write around Pulp Fiction, and you guys were the first people to read the book. And as I was writing it, I was just I didn't know if you remember I would write Send you three chapters at a time. So the next time I had, like three done chapters, I'd send them off and wasn't so much even to get like a whole lot of feedback. It was just knowing that somebody was reading them. Knowing that somebody was waiting for them. It stopped it from like I said, being a weird, morbid, happy that I could stop at any point in time. I always thought a part of this, too, is just when you're not working. The exercise of writing is something you do just as so to keep yourself in shape, but also because you're always thinking about characters and we've talked about this obviously on the air before People extrapolate, but what it is you're doing what your next project is going to be like. They have no idea what he's gonna really do, because I know what he's doing. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, he's writing. It has nothing to do these things they're talking, you realize like how outrageous the speculation usually is, compared to what the reality is and not as interesting because in getting these chapters and getting you in pieces like that, I felt like I was getting them. Almost an episodes, and they weren't coming in order. That was not at first, but then they got it. Yeah, but I mean, initially they weren't which was excitement for me because I didn't know how it was going to be laid out. Just getting pieces and well, I'm not sure where I'm going to put this but take a look. And and, yeah, Seeing it now laid out like this, seeing it that this structure that's given to it really For me just hit something these things that I know I mentioned to you before, but again, the idea of intimacy and then just loneliness, which is also to me, it's the Don Siegel influence on. Yeah, I mean, because so many of the characters in Siegel are like well Am I okay with this? Yeah. I mean, you know, are you Joe Don Baker. Or are you Walter Matthau? Alright? Yeah. Yeah, well, but also I mean, like, also sending it to use a little different for the simple fact that Okay, well, there's maybe, like six people out there who are going to get every reference in the book, and you're one of the six. It's like you Todd McCarthy, a couple other people, but that's about it. Well, that's very kind of you said my guess who's being incredibly generous is Quentin Tarantino. His novel is once upon a time in Hollywood. I'm here's You don't mind me putting on the spot because we haven't talked about it. What did you think of the older, right chapter? Oh, my God, That's heartbreaking. I was going to talk to you about all these chapters again. That's another chapter that's about intimacy and about self awareness and about loneliness..

I used to work at the Civic Center on I I always handed year tickets. Oh, thank you. Well, I thank you for that, because I share went there a lot to see so many different. I always remember you can use your hats and I know where there's Jan your tickets out and then hand them right, Tio. All right. Well, thanks. I'm so glad you then. I'm glad you mentioned the pleasure of his company because you get some really great shots of savage Cisco as well as this great romance, you know, so that's really fun. Can the other one that I love is man's favourite sport with rock Rock Hudson and Paula Prentiss. And, you know, our shots of Abercrombie and Finch didn't no longer there and the museum mechanic and in all those things exactly Museum, a connect. Oh my God. Thank goodness. A bunch of it is still available, and fishermen put in a plug for Danny's Alinsky, who runs the museum and who's an old and dear friend. I usedto when I was in sixth grade his sister Dale was my girlfriend Got it didn't burn down doing this Fire, little act by a job. Anything we can do to help him and you know, like the pleasure of his company. Back to that guest is coming to dinner is a similar kind of house. I wouldn't be surprised if they used the same house and Wonderful actor that played the houseboy named Harold Fall. Ah Benson Song, his his probably maybe connected. Maybe not. Anyway, John, I listen to you all the time. And I love you and Jan, Thanks. Thank you. Thank you so much wonderful. I have to say I saw that movie. And if you remember nothing, I want to reveal the end. In the end, Friendster has two tickets, and he thinks his daughter is going to go with his daughter. Doesn't he takes the houseboy stare? Another another shot of the Golden Gate Bridge is used in the movie on the beach, and there has another non dancing role as he does in the pleasure of his company in on the beach. Even though it's a very different genre, But I want to be sure I get in. Many of these movies were not playing sounds from so people don't get too upset. There's just so many lets the Moneyball Moneyball is next. Let's hear the sound. Your goal shouldn't be to buy players. Your goal should be to buy wins. In order to buy wins. You need to buy runs. Who are you? I'm Peter Brand first job in baseball. It's my first job. Anywhere. This's such an underrated movie. I love this film. Moneyball is the story of Billy being the Oakland A's general manager, and he assembles a baseball team on the very lean budget. But also using a controversial computer generated analysis of the new players, and it makes a mix for really good cinema. And, of course, Brad Pitt is terrific in this. What a good actor anyway. It has a stadium, of course and the Bay Bridge and it's a lovely film Moneyball, and I think it didn't get hit. It should have gotten more talk. You know, it should have been talked about more when it came out, and I've got a lot of listeners that air throwing things in here. Hannah says a few of her favorites or bullet with Steve McQueen. Yes, who's coming to dinner? Was the birds on DH? Well, they've got that coming up. Yeah, I know so, but no, she's She's got a lot and so many. And and what's up, Doc? Sandy says, which has that fantastic Lombard Street scene. OK chase and it takes a lot of it takes place in the Hilton, the San Francisco Hilton, and there's a conversation that really uses unions. Square. Beautifully, you know, was so lucky because so much of San Francisco is, I said about the away with the hills in the shadows and the You know it's perfect for the cinema. Perfect.

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

"Well not exactly. So when Elliott? Gould dropped out of the picture and there was a kind of scramble to possibly and it was a place with a really short period of time. I'm not lasted very long. Because he was what was I think? Generating the interest financing and the picture but there was a moment where the idea was. How do we? How do we resuscitate here? And what do we do you know? I was at that moment in time and only for a brief moment I was sort of. You know hot young thing and they're given I were together. And you know there was this momentary discussion and it may literally only been in my head up you know how about if I stepped into this film because because I I went like my youth works to my advantage in this part point here Elliott. Gould is around thirty two. When it comes to tiger is being made. Chris was still in his twenties and was probably a better fit for the role of Luther at least age wise. I mean I had a copy of glimpse of Tiger for one hundred years. I mean I used to carry it around all over the place I dunno I I had this kind of fantasy about resuscitating that movie in that I you know this was going to be a great thing for me to do. I'm not sure I was right by the way but you know that was my idea time but it never worked out for Chris. He was not able to get the picture mate and considering the effort that Chris put into getting. This made one question. Did pop into my mind at any point while you were thinking about getting this made. Did you ever think to bring this to your father? No there's something. I should point out to you about Chris. His father was directing legend. Don Siegel for those of you. Unfamiliar With Siegel. He was the man behind invasion of the body. Snatchers dirty Harry. Charley varick escape from Alcatraz and a number of others. The man was an absolute legend. I don't remember ever thinking of giving it to my father to get the next question I would think you. That's why would you and I guess that would open a Pandora's box you there. The dysfunction was between me and my father. Now it's a perfectly reasonable question. He actually he had a very interesting project about. It was a really weird little kind of arty movie idea that he fell in love with a this kid who was kind of in some ways. It was a similar story That he was he wanted to do work with me. He wanted to make a movie with me and I think he felt a little guilty in that he didn't fight to put me into or choose to put me into And I think by the way he made the right choice the The movie he made with John Wayne the shooter I to play the kid in it through our part. Okay our because Iran hours like really good in that and in many ways it was really playing into all the things that Ron Howard did terribly well and that I would have had to act terribly well And so I think you know my father probably made the right choice but I think he's still complicated about it but I never. I never even considered. I just didn't feel like Don Seagal movie to me. Herman Rauscher took screenplay and turned it into a successful novel. He's in his nineties these days and when I asked to speak with him about a glimpse of Tiger. Here's how he responded. Thanks for your email. The attempted adaptation of a glimpse of Tiger was a bad experience. All around and not something. I want to revisit now. Still I do appreciate your interest and wish you all the best. Gould would end up. Owing Warner Brothers. One hundred and seventy five thousand dollars for the loss production of a glimpse of Tiger painted off to twenty five thousand dollars a year over seven years and he also didn't work for almost two years. Afterwards it was his mash director. Robert Altman that brought back before cameras for the excellent. The long goodbye in one thousand nine hundred seventy three however before gould could be cast he had to take a psychiatric evaluation and be legally declared. Sane in interviews. Gould refers to his time with glimpse of Tiger as the debacle or the humble back. Gary is talking about it on the podcast. Wpf with Marc Maron Blink. Something that was called at the time. A glimpse of Tiger and the way I saw it it was the little prince in urban America right now and I was the aviator and the princess. This girl and I didn't know that I should have tried to cast my wife. Jenny and I cast. I wanted to cast Kim Darby and I said to her. It's going to be difficult. I've never done this before to be playing a part in. This is a different part of the car to be really frightening just like this and so if if you get frightened or you don't understand where I'm coming just say timeout. Put your make a tee with your hands. Call me over to the side. I'm like a doll. I mean I need you to be happy secure and comfortable but she. She was scared. And I didn't know that I was way beyond limits in terms of the comprehension of the people. I was working with us. I put my heart in my life. You know and and the movie didn't get finished or no it didn't and that was the beginning of the humbling. Yes Oh yes. There was talk that Gould was on drugs. And that this clause into freak out or have a nervous breakdown but he's denied that he hasn't denied using drugs. Mind you the totally admits to using drugs. He likes to smoke a little marijuana and do some psychedelics but he denies that drugs was the problem. Gould instead says things Like his problem wasn't drugs. Reality was or. He didn't know how to play the part or that he had no perspective. I even had carotene and Barbara. Hershey came to stay with me for a while and he had two dogs and I love Carotene. I felt guilty look at Karen and accounting family. They're great American actors. And what look what? I'm doing how to get in this position and to do this but I mean there was. Nobody really there with me. Jenny was there but I can't say that she understood. And I certainly didn't understood but I didn't know that I didn't have the right To create I thought that I could and so I had to pay for it. I had to find out that there are boundaries. And I'm fine with it. I paid for the product. Gould's production company was basically done. Never made a movie out of the assistant. The book I mentioned in the opener they did make a few dollars off that woody Allen picture though it was nineteen seventy. Two's everything you wanted to know about sex but was afraid to ask the touch. The Ingmar Bergman film that Gould Start in was released in. Nineteen seventy one and was a flop. It received mixed reviews and recorded a loss of a little over a million dollars after the longer by in Nineteen seventy-three Gould's career picked back up for better or worse and he's been working steadily ever since one or brothers would be fine. Yeah I know no shock there. They took a glimpse of tiger script and gave it to director Peter Bogdanovich to see if he was interested he wasn't but then took some elements of it. Flip the sex of the leads and turn it into a screwball comedy and called. What's up? Doc Is San Francisco. The city chosen by one of the most sensitive new generation of filmmakers. Peter Bogdanovich for his maiden comedy. What's up doc starring? Barbra streisand and Ryan O'Neal. Well there's not much to see. Actually we're inside a tiny drag any experienced observer of trooping techniques which quickly sense the not only. Was it a big hit for one brothers. In nineteen seventy two. It was a big hit for star. Barbra streisand who in case you don't know happens to be Elliott Gould's ex-wife. Thank you for listening to this episode of the industry.

DVD's a long time after that was made when you're in a seasonal thing there's only so many seasonal ones like the Christmas story although they a lot of regenerate but the classic Christmas ones. You've seen one hundred times. You watch him every year he don't care it's just part of what you do you and it's Kinda that Thanksgiving or Halloween. You would look around and say what can we watch this consistent with the holiday and you don't see it until next next year but you do it. Then you have more family members in and GRANDPA's starts getting into it with the grandkids and pretty soon. It's everybody watches it. I grew up. I didn't grow up up but it had a niece. That when we when we visit we had to watch the grinch who stole Christmas which I liked anyway but that became a traditional thing whenever we had gift exchange before we did the gift exchange. We'd watch a couple of either those shorts or a particular movie like the Santa Claus or something like that so that became aim their family tradition. So yeah that's I mean. Take a look at that one though. It sounds kind of interesting. Yeah I mean you know you'd think all you got at these Dracula Frankenstein with metal that stuff. They're not campy so it's not a campy movie. The comedy in it but I would Actually recommend so well again. Here's another you could call this sci fi but this falls under that because there's an influence here from outer space but the theme because this film was made in one thousand nine hundred fifty six. Yeah we're going back a ways. The overtone here is because does the Cold War was going on a lot of suspicion about mind control or being controlled Overrun and so on. And this film directed directed by Don Siegel and starring Kevin McCarthy Dana winner and a host of other character actors. Who you'll be quite familiar with if you watch the film again? It's black and white but this thing when I first saw it as a kid made a big impression I love to watch it. It's still scary. It's still something into a source of conversation. I'm talking about invasion of the body snatchers. This is the original not the remake by Philip Kaufman in nineteen eighteen. Seventy eight which takes place. It's in color. That's in color and takes place in San Francisco now not near as scary not his Concerning and this works again because black and white makes this just so frantic anyway. The story is for not familiar. The mayor with Santa Mira California Miles Bennett Dr Miles bandits baffled when all of his patients come to him with the same complaint one of their loved one and seems to have been replaced by emotional imposter they have no emotion nothing startled they. Don't care about anything. And despite others just denials and dismissing denials. He and his former girlfriend played by Dana. Wynter and his friend Jack Play by a Gab. Name of King Donovan. Soon discovered that the patient suspicions are true and and alien species of human duplicates grown from plant like pods is taking over the small town and the great fear. Is You have to stay awake because then they become horrified that this isn't a random thing. Those people that were taken over are actually raising seizing. These seedpods in field and distributing around. So when you're they go to sleep they place one near under your bed you become one of them Who when you when you think about the films that have followed like the Stepford wives and some of these things this set the tone? And he's he he of course becomes aware of this is trying to get the authorities to believe him. Well the only he has to get out of town but they're trying to get him and he and his girlfriend are trying to escape but you're getting hired. Can they stay awake long enough to get out. It's a chilling thing and when they see what's happening they see these replicans people the look like them. That are coming out of these pod odd. It scared this will give you nightmares. Eighty eight it still resonates with me. I remembered I can see the scenes and I I watched it several years apart from the first time and whenever I see it or able to catch it on late show it is still a scary film. The reason that Don Siegel if that name rings any bells became a pretty good director some significant films in the one. That's most significant. As I told you couple of episodes ago I'd read. The biography was reading a biography of by Mark Elliott of of Clint Eastwood Don Siegel Legal Directed Dirty Harry and one of the other subsequent sudden impact one of the other ones. But it's Don Siegel's direction style while that influenced Clint Eastwood the most less dialogue more action shooting not long takes although Segal took more takes than clint clinched. One of those guys that they can be explained. I see it as good enough God. Let's move on. I'm playing golf at two o'clock get out of here that type of thing and if you watch Clint Eastwood Movies he actually knows what he's doing because if he does it that way he gets it he gets the actors he has respect for the actors. It didn't WanNa waste their time or their performance. But anyway that's a little sidebar. There is he's credited by Eastwood is having significant impact on his film career. There it is very much of the body. snatchers nineteen fifty six. So my next and last movie that I have is is one of those movies we do watch. Every year it is called Hocus pocus. Eighteen ninety three Bette midler Bette. Midler Bette Midler Sarah Jessica Parker Caffeine. Jimmy this is directed by Kenny Tak- who any kids that are listening. No he directed the high school musical movies. And the Cheetah girls who basically the Disney a lot of the Disney movies that had the songs and Dancing and all right just so so bette midler sir. Just Parker Caffeine. Jimmy Play Winfred. Sarah era and Mary Sanderson's three hundred years have passed since the Sanderson sisters were executed for practicing dark witchcraft returning to life. Thanks to a combination of a spell broken before their demise and the exit dental actions of Max. The new kid in town the sisters I have a one night to secure their continuing existence. So this is this is a pretty funny one. No this is actually I. Bette midler has said that this is her favorite role that she's ever played there. had been reeler's there'd been rumors of maybe second one. I don't know if they've completely well. They may come back currently at Disneyworld on certain nights they have what they call Mickey's not so scary. Halloween party which I have attended recently and one of their big stage shows at the end of the night. It's right in front of the castle. There's a stage and it has the Hocus pocus. It has these three sisters and people love it so so you know the demand and all that kind of stuff they actually make a second one. I'm not one hundred percent sure So there's a lot of cool scenes in this. She raises the guy from the dead. So there's a Zombie that's chasing number then ends up turning into a friend. There's the trick or treat that scene where the the three which is come in go on the street and the kids are running back and forth in their costumes and I like world. What's going on and they realize it's it's kids? Mary Sanderson has this Mac. She can smell kids when they're coming smell so it's pretty funny. A couple of the Trivia. I have the role of Max Dennison. WHO's the main character in the film that was originally offered to Leonardo the Capri April back when he was young when he turned it down to appear in? What's eating Gilbert grape? which turned out to be a pretty good decision? Actually they lost money so I don't know critically was good for his career critical reviews on it and Jennifer Lopez allegedly addition for the role. That Sarah Jessica Parker plays stuff. That was interesting There's a lot of lines in the movie that actually are similar to lines. That bette Midler had done in in movies but one one thing I thought was really in the film. There's Mary he says to. To Builders Character Winfred Thou art divine and Bette Midler is known for her nickname. The divine with 'em I am so there's a lot of call outs for that Also seen where Gary Marshall and Penny Marshall are they're playing husband and wife life during the trick or treat because Garry Marshall's dressed up as Satan so they come.

Yes not showy but a consummate craftsman. <hes> was able to do a lot of different things. Dick higham did the great music for moonstruck which is a really important part of the movie the way in which both classical pieces and dick hyman created music that references classical pieces is used. How each character kind of has a theme like an opera juice. It tells a story about how they filmed the movie they did. The first screening in the film started with like some type of overture music from la lam them an audience is just sat there in silence through much of that scene where loretta is both walking around to her clients and then having dinner with johnny and gets proposed to and they didn't know i know what to do because the music wasn't giving them a cue to what this was and then jewison somehow stumbled upon dean martin's that's amora moret and cut that in and just everything clicked. He's that song is this movie in like the strength of the emotions of that scene where he's threatening to. There's something about that song. That's almost a caricature of itself and yet it's a very sweet and it's fun like you can't deny how pleasant it is to listen. Listen to both.

"That scene is just when the, the cab, there's that women standing stock still against the strip club. And by this point in the movie, we're in just deep, there's this element of distrust, and also in the soundtrack. There's a lot of nature. Sounds in the beginning the San Francisco loud, life and plants and glistening raindrops. And then the soundtrack subtly shifts at the course of the movie to really just be the sounds of industrialized. Yeah. Like a garbage trucks, picking up satchels of your remain so that we don't know that at the time, right? The throbbing sound that you heard there of the two motorcycle cops passing the cab in the tunnel. It's just so ominous. It's the young of that police state imagery, motorcycle jacket. Police officers riding tandem at a high rate of speed things. Scare the shit out of me in the Saudis. I don't know. I was just like a terrified child clutching my stuffed rabbit shout out. Flops Brown are still with us somewhere somewhere. Wow. Thanksgiving company get in this box. We'll see. I mean I'm saying I hope that he somewhere. I don't I don't have him. I don't think I don't want to think of him gone. No a farm upstate. I'm sure you've probably kidding. Everyone had a little animal that you clung to. Nope. Just a little grown man lying in bed. Never cried able to cut his food from age three able to have to. Can eat, you can get a sense of Don Siegel's, dry wit even just in there, which is much remarked upon in the book that I'm reading his own remarks about themselves. Other people reference in the book talking to him in about him. And he's extremely dry and very funny, and you get a little sense of that, okay? I guess it's time we have to do the dog. I mean, I think of all things ever in movies. I'm not sure anything else stayed with me the way this continues to write. Sometimes you read about stuff, and it takes some of the power or some of the magic way like envisioning Donald Sutherland, sitting under hairdryer with curlers kinda like bums me out, a little bit learning how they did this doesn't change at all the horrifying nature of the shot. And how ever many times I watch it, it will still contain an eerie supernatural power. It's just one of those things it's the clip of the homeless banjo playing Hobo merged with his dog. Watching it out. It's comical, because the banjo music is there to tell you. Also interesting banjo played by jersey amazing. Come to find out, it's a practical effect. Yes. It's not CGI, which I think is part of, what makes it stay with you, because you can see, it's that makes it that much more grotesque, because there's physically something on that dog space. So actually went to my usual special effects go-to, person, my friend, Jason Khuda. I said, I said, you know, the dog and body snatchers, like, apparently, it was a mask they put on a real dog, and there's really no effect going on. And they just got lucky that they put some peanut butter on the lips of the mask, and they got lucky that the dog licked the peanut butter and it gives it that insane humanity. But when you look at it, it does look like maybe it's tracked a little as the dog comes up. So I asked Jason if he thought it was like a printed frame, perhaps, that they were then three eight adding that he said he didn't think so. But he would ask friend of his who's a legendary kind of Hollywood special effects guy, alma, and al-said. No, I think it's a full. Will. I don't think that they're that they're using frames to get the dogs face to come up to the close up. I think it's just the way that shot is lit. Yeah. There are some like stray Asians of light going across, and it creates almost a little bit of a stutter effect. As the dog approaches the camera so to hear everyone involved in the making a movie they just had this mask made that they put on the dog's head and they call the dog over, and he happened to run up lick his lips in time in perfect shot that freaked, the hell out of everybody for fifty years, or overlong, specifically to now. I'm sure in ten years, it'll still be freaking out and just works because it is such a grotesque image. And for those of you who haven't seen it, there's a homeless banjo player and his dog who are asleep next to a pod, which is supposed to be replicating, the man, but Donald Sutherland accidentally kicks it, and damages it so that it makes it assimilates demand. And the dog similar to the fly which Jimmy bloom was in, yes. Great movie. Great movie cod. If you had a nineteen seventies early eighties childhood, you are. Haunted by that scene, as I am did they try to do that shot in the two thousand seven I mean, I guess, all of them there has to be that beat where something happens that freaks somebody out, and so their emotion gets shown. But that is easily the best one, I think, in the ninety three one Gabriel Anwar character. Yup. Befriends. Arly Emory's daughter antibi-, Christine Elise hu is fantastic. Shout out Bev Niner Beverly Hills. She was Jason Priestley's girlfriend, and Bev Niner no kidding. I think so. Well, she was great. And there's one point where you see her, and there's a little bit of tension because you're unsure, she had been similarly or not. And she says something about the brother. They're trying to search for her little brother. I think that is you're right. You're right. She says, I saw Danny or whatever, and she can't help herself, but expressed human emotion in the same way that Brooke Adams, given away because the fucking dog or if I did you screams and in the fifty six one what sets off Dana Wynter in the fifty six one can't remember what it is in the fifty six one the ending scene of the movie. Is one of those ending scenes where I think, in the middle of the seventy eight body snatchers. It's get the little baggy. You have this incredible screen presence in Jeff Goldblum. And he just goes away now. And nimoy to, you don't want roller leonardy Moi has to then become unemotional like the whole point of having like, I don't wanna do Spock, but I'm going to then become more like Spock always had heart emotion going on. I mean human. So as much as he wanted to be a login, you always felt the beating heart of Spock, this is just like it's all would but this supposed to be some tension like is this is a twist is ear. Isn't he? There's no question question for the beginning that he was the first turned part of it is because of his the popular psychiatrists, self help guru of it. Yes, is, so there's ever been a time that, that a character like that has not been either evil or a hypocrite daily or something like that. You just. No, no. You know that, that guy's not going to be the right side. The ending sequence is just brilliant. Both in the framing. It's shot a little bit lower show that both the capitol building of San Francisco, Donald Sutherland is in front of these bizarre trees that look like needs from a nightmarish kind of like art Spiegelman meets Dr Seuss land. And this is the famous scene between him and what's her name, Chris Cartwright? Thank you. God, what must be like recall. It's great. I mean, the fucked up version of amazing grace. Yeah. The grayness of the day, the birds flying back and forth, whatever those goddamn trees are haunt my nightmares Chris forever. They look so sickly and evil and scary. I was gonna look it up known even as bad. I wanna know the mystery is even better, then that push into Sutherland, and he gives a brilliant, I flare halfway through his scream, that'll send you home with fucking nightmares. Forever. Enjoy everybody. Then the able Ferrara version. Let's go scream for scream. I mean, I think the scream in the seventy eight one is just is just is the scream like I don't think it's been improved upon. I don't know what they did in col- Kidman version. Do they didn't really have it? Would you do have at one point two thousand seven the invasion is Jeremy Northam does vomit slash cough, on to infect her? That how it passed a sex thing like like a like we're all going to die of having sex. I don't I don't know. What's crappy about? It is takes place in Washington DC. She's a psychologist it is much more about her trying to protect her son. There's a background theme of the difference between humanity and animals when pushed into the win will humanity become Linders something, which is so nonspecific. It's sort of loses the conformity thing, and it is more just about at one point. She spoiler for this crappy movie. She shoots. Daniel Craig is he's. Oh, yes. He's a love interest. Oh. Jeremy Northerns the ex husband okay? Daniel Craig, she's traded up. Thanks. I thanks, but she she and so I think the things like the violence to protect her child. Daniel Craig because she knows he's a pod person. Yeah. Okay. So to get away into Ninety-three able for our where get real Anwar shoots. Terry, Kinney, her own father, and throws her toddler brother off a helicopter like that is with the endings each of is. Introducing new I that throwing the. You gotta have real stones make a kid evil and that they do bring into the two thousand seven one. There's this other little kid like her sons who gets assimilated and at some point is like take her away like ordering. And that at one point. Yes. Like breakaway Ed, she does like throw him. And he hits his head against the bed. And if the movie really had any spine, that kid would be dead. But instead in this sort of happy ending she's now adopted him. So in the ninety three able for version, we have professional nineties, man weenie, Terry Kinney as divorced, dad guy with hair and a lot of really baggy clothing. Well, it was listen, he's so, so, so the early nineties and the great Meg Tilly. So in this construct, we have a divorced dad with his new wife who's the mother of the youngest son, but not the mother of Gabrielle Anwar's character, who I think at the time of the movie was twenty one years old. But I think she sort of played like an underage high school fifteen. Yeah. Able for our shows, I would say remarkable restraint in not over sexualizing her in a way that you might expect him to. Due based on some of the other movies, for at least it didn't make it into the final cut. Let me was filmed. But anyway, you have that in this is the scene where they realize, yes. Bring 'em in. Bring paulin. Speaking of the pod person, we're ready. We're joined by our colleague, Paul cap, ladies, gentlemen. Hi. Can you hear.
