Fresh update on "elizabeth" discussed on Elysabeth Alfano
"Elizabeth Cauffman. I mentioned it. It's wonderful. Thank you for joining us. Especially today. I'm Father's Day. Um I mentioned the the white supremacy accusation that's been levied against her. Um, which Which I find Really problematic, um, in in historical context in which she lived, um, that the the the racism. Accusation really comes. Uh and I'd love you to speak to this from her her her personal correspondents at a time before the Internet and before Um, you know, you know, before, uh When when, when someone would assume that those correspondents would forever be would be, uh, personal. In private. Uh, that's correct. And thanks for to you and Carrie for having us on the show, Uh, partner, co producer. Cinematographer Sam's owner, Ted Harden is here in the back on as well. Uh and, uh, whispered, But you know, I particularly spent a lot of years. Reading all of the O'Connors letters researching this very question reading her fiction, uh, which is well known for exploring that Southern Gothic sensibility. Uh, that's all about racism and horizontal violence and classism, right? And, um, and a dark sense of humor. Right. Uh, so you know what I found. And my partner Father, Mark Bosco, who is now at Georgetown, who is an O Connor scholar. What we found really? And and her work. Uh, is, I'd say nothing surprising for a person of some white privilege living in Georgia at that time in the 19. She was born in the twenties 1964. But really, if you look at by the time by the time O Connor was in her early 20, she left Georgia to study at the Iowa writer's workshop. Right, and she started. You know, we researched her and my faith thesis, her first stories, all of which have been published and well discussed in her first stories. One of which is, uh, referenced in the American Masters cut. She's pushing on a white Southerner who lives in New York City who is racist. And and so in her early twenties, you know whatever. May have transpired before her early twenties in terms of postcards that have anti black or an anti Semitic events. Sentiment in it, she wrote in her teenage years, and, um You know, I think she had confronted that when she started writing and she throughout her life kept confronting those feelings kept confronting her own, uh, doubts her own. Uh, Understanding of white racism and throughout affection. You read that? Yeah, and and so let me let me just backtrack here a little bit and tell folks who were talking to that wonderful voice is Elizabeth Cauffman. She's a Loyola University associate professor in the School of Communications. Like I'm having trouble with today. Uh and, uh, she she produced this film with Professor Mark Bosco. Um, a fellow at a fellow professor at Loyola University. And with her with Elizabeth right now is Columbia College, Um cinema and television Professor Ted Harden. Who served as cinematographer and an associate producer. You guys work together by the way previous to this Yeah, we we mostly make work together. So one of the origin stories of this film Flannery Um, was first the co director Mark Bosco feel on the box of right earlier recordings. Of interviews from 20 years prior to us starting on this, and Elizabeth eventually brought brought home a few of those interviews and we looked at them and we're like, Oh, wow. You know, I mean, Elizabeth was my had many more conversations with with Mark, but we both were like these are really these are really well shot. Interviews? Yeah. With people who have passed away Flannery O'Connor's publisher, family members and so on. But the production quality was high enough and the interests Elizabeth from the south from Jacksonville. I went to school at Florida State. Uh huh. Midwestern boy, uh, doing anything I can to escape Ohio at the time. My joke. Is there more astronauts from Ohio than anything will leave. We'll leave the planet to get out of Ohio. Uh, But here I am back back in the mid west of Chicago, Chicago, But anyway, we notice the production values for hive. Those early interviews, lots of amazing, supportive context to make a film project out of that center of support. Which will probably talk about today to how hard it is to make documentaries at the same time how easy it is to start but how hard it is to make them layered well. And to really sort of, uh and, uh, add a lot of details that takes years in the making of research and footage, gathering and interview, securing You guys know this way? We've we've made a ton of documentaries, ourself. Um, no, I'm just just kidding here. Um, but But, yeah, I mean, we We've talked with enough documentary filmmakers here to appreciate the magnitude of of of work that goes into Into creating, um, basically recreate, recreating a life or or an event or subject. Um, so that people gain um, A, uh A proper understanding of the subject matter, which is not and tell a compelling story, which isn't which isn't an easy task at all. Right? And before we pivot back to another question, So we do make work together. And prior to Flannery, we were mostly working and environmental documentaries, right? With some experimental media installations also kind of a company. Uh, bad, but but our first documentary made together it was it was Kind of, uh, in interesting circumstance where Elizabeth sister was serving in Bosnia as an election supervisor. Uh huh. And Elizabeth had this crazy idea. Um, uh, Elizabeth had only made like a film or so. 11 or two films, short films, Uh and then I I made quite a few other kinds of films, shorts and worked in the commercial industry for a while. Arizona, Florida, Ohio and all that. Um, but you know, it was like, Hey, you want to want to go to Bosnia and make a movie? You know how can one refused that sort of invitation? And so so, But what we've seen through our environmental documentaries and that Bosnia, uh, moving, which actually does come back to Flannery and your your initial line of questioning, which is we tend to study communities that are fractured, or at least facing really difficult challenges. The environmental films and stories were looking to tell, of course, have climate change climate crises, corporate sort of money grab kind of activities. That are totally normalize. You know, that's an oil. Water, Uh, kinds of industries, things like that. Um, And so how it re intersects with Flannery is now the reception as you clearly pointed out. Of of Flannery's writing, and then the context from which she wrote, and then how people are still finding a valid how people are Perhaps questioning, um in deeper ways. Like who are these authors? Why are we paying attention to them? Are there still lessons to help our contemporary community makes sense of Very, very challenging Topics like anti racism. Uh, and other kinds of class and caste. Mhm. You know, we're we've got to take a quick break here when we come back. I want to ask you guys Uh, What? What attracted you to Flannery O'Connor? And if if the the so called revelations about racism, particularly in in the in the cultural atmosphere that we find ourselves in now, if that gave you any pause, Um and I know you began this project a number of years ago before Before this issue has ramped up, but it's been with us for a while. Um so so I'm wondering if if that gave you any any pause, we're talking with filmmakers Ted Harden and Elizabeth Cauffman. Their, uh, their exceptional and I would I would recommend it to anybody. Exceptional documentary is Flannery. At PBS dot org. Uh and, uh at the the American Masters Page, uh, And that link is.

SEC Chair Gary Gensler Plans 'Woke' Corporate Disclosure Rules
"Charlie. I don't know that we've ever spoken. If we did. It was a long time ago. How are you? It's a huge honor and pleasure, Mark. We did speak. You had me out for a book I wrote back in 2000 and three when I was at Newsweek magazine believe. Oh, my God. Well, let me say this. It's a real pleasure. You're a real serious reporter and you do your work and You broke a story today that caught my ear. And I'd like you to explain who is Gary Gansler. And what is he doing? Gary Gensler is a longtime fixture on Wall Street, essentially the revolving door between Wall Street and Washington in the sort of he worked at Goldman Sachs. He worked in the Obama administration, and he worked at the end. I think he worked in the Clinton administration, so he's been going back and forth. He's pretty rich. She was a partner at Goldman Sachs. Now he's the head of Wall Street's top cop, the Securities and Exchange Commission. Um, and he's doing something really interesting now over the years. Gary Gensler has more from sort of a Clinton Democrat into, I guess the best way to put it as an Elizabeth Warren Democrat. He's extremely woke extremely progressive. And he has some extreme ideas of how he wants Corporate America to act. He wants corporate America to adopt extreme woke. Policies he wants. Essentially every company to environment embrace environmental standards. He wants every company to have quote unquote diverse boards and diverse workforces, and he he wants to use government as the lever to do that, and he's doing that right now. At the Securities Exchange Commission. Because the Security Exchange Commission has enormous power over corporate America. It basically can mandate what they do and how they do it, and it could do that through a lot of different levers enforcement actions. In this case, what he's doing is he's proposing rules. And those rules will be passed by the Securities Exchange Commission, which is majority Democrat now, so he's going to ram them through without any without any Republican voice, And these are rules that essentially forced companies. To be more woke in certain areas in in terms of environmental issues in terms of board diversity, they will have to disclose those that their diversity have what they're doing for the environment. And when they do that, obviously, it's going to be a an object where the mainstream media is going to weigh in and say, Look at this company. Company. X is not his woke his company wide. They're not doing as much here than not doing as much there. Uh And I guess the bottom line is this. Listen, you may believe in these policies if you're liberal, if you're a free market capitalist like me, I care about the bottom line, to be honest with you, But if you're a shareholder, you really should be caring about the bottom line. These are not bottom line issues, and they Feed the S E. C s mandate. If you read the mandate, which is to make the markets safe, poor investors to make sure companies disclose stuff that investors care about for too wet to to weigh whether they should Invest in the stock or not. I mean, this is politicizing companies and corporate disclosure to a level that we've never seen before, and he's doing it. He proposed these rules and they

Got that as our understanding of malnutrition and we were told. Basically food provides all the nutrients you need. You don't need vitamins and supplements makes expensive urine and we should just not follow on that track and study after study comes out showing how this interventional trial with omega three or four later this that doesn't work And and so the consumers wondering what's going on because it's clear that are is depleted and that people are eating a lot of crap and that thought a poor nutrition going on but but is there really a pandemic of malnutrition which can show up in someone who's thin or someone who was extremely overweight so Talk about what the state of our nutrition.

"I think we've loosely sort of framed. This is how would you proceeds in terms of directing okay. I know what that means. I'm so curious. Well let's say so. You have spent four hours setting up for a big action sequence and ripe before you guys are about to roll sons down. Whatever your lead actor comes up and says I don't know why my character would say this so I've been on that I've been in those moments and here's the thing that is work that athletes should it needs to be done by you. That is literally your fucking job as an actor is to figure out why you do things and that work needs to be done long before you show up to the set. I love that you're looking at me. Dirk hardcore because you probably know. I've done that ship before without meaning to but it makes me fucking crazy when actors do that. It makes me insane. I've been on. I won't name names but I've been on sets. Were that exact surly four hours set up. Two hundred background extras or standing around. It's you know it's freezing out. They call everybody to set and then suddenly the lead actor and the director to go to the trailer conversation about why he's doing something and the answer literally is like 'cause we already shot see we already shot a and this is literally just be and we just need to connect a NC. It's infuriating like people have families go home to like. Get Your Shit together. Do your work before he shop to set. Okay let's say you're financier is dating this gal named Bernie and you are kind enough to give her a line on the day of her. Seen Wardrobe comes up to you and says the very unique does not want to wear the red dress that she'd already been fitted tailored in and it's not her thing. I love how. How big your recent discussing? So far has been scenario in my life. Actually when I think I would do in. That situation is first of all. I want everyone to come to set feeling great and confident so with wardrobe hair and makeup. That's usually a conversation I have. How do they feel on it now? I can't have somebody come to set in a blue dress. Win The whole backgrounds. Blue or like the readdress is a story point like she's gotTa wear the Red Dress. That's a different scenario. This amaze just like I feel bad in this and I don't feel confident. I don't know how I can do it. People are very insecure especially young or inexperienced people in every industry by the way. I'm not even just saying that of actors right like you have to get up and give a presentation tomorrow. It's your first time in front of the boss in Blah Blah Blah and. You're like sweating through your blazer and you feel like you tried on seventeen outfits right. That's that's the same scenario that this is that this is. I would just want that person to feel confident coming to set. And then at the end of the day I would know because it's the it's like the finances girlfriend that I'm probably editing. That line out of the film anyway. So so it's not a big deal. It's an N. B. C. D. Her line is I really think we gotta get Outta here now. Oh well that sounds like I might need it but I can later okay. Would you feel like doing some line rates? Ooh cliche movie quotes. Let's bring you back to the days of auditioning. Oh God okay. I'll be cast injector just going to simply read you a series of lines okay. All right We use late for US shirt. Hi I'm Elizabeth Banks. I'm five five a side after and yes I will cut my hair. Thank you so much Elizabeth. Your first line is what are you doing here? What are you doing here? I'd like to take back. What are you doing here? That's good I would imagine. This is also somebody that you are overjoyed to see. Sorry I it's okay. It is a horror movie. It's fine okay. What are you doing here? Okay the next one is. You've got to be kidding. You've gotta be kidding. I know you wanted the German accent. I love the German accent but I also wanted to be truly like this person has just come up with like solving something in cry. You know what I mean like Ernest. Okay Okay Germany Ernest. I'm going to you doing here. What are you doing here for three Dunia? I think that was very sexy. Do want you to do. You've got to be kidding. Oh that's right. Sorry I was on the wrong though. That's Okay No. I'm glad you have the first line down. You've got to kidding me. You've got to be kidding me. Okay no me. Because it's not about you can p. I can see that you and I are laughing. And no one else is gonNA realize. And they're just going to be like. Why is this makes a weird accent on this? My guess what is happening. What about why am I not surprised question? Mark Why am I not surprised? Why am I not surprised? Oh that's good. I know you do a lot of animation right. Yeah voices I love doing it I do too but don't you find it? It's hard. It's such an amazing job for many reasons if you work for four hours but I'm beat after it are. Do you find yourself total like creating a character kind of by yourself trying to round out the vocals. It's an intensive process. Yes it's exceedingly intensive. You have to bring so much to it because you're not you can't rely on anything else right so there's no one to bounce off of their zone with you. It's why so what I was going to say is I love. I do a three in a row every single time. Some always like. You've gotta be kidding. You'VE GOTTA BE KIDDING. You've got to be kidding you're like. Oh my God did we get it please generous? I was promoting my first animated movie and I said basically something similar to that like well you know it was it was like how was it. I was you know I know everyone talks. About what an amazing job it isn't it is but it was also more difficult than I thought and she said well it's not like you're digging ditches and I you know my memory. The audience stood up and clapped I. That's what happened to my memory in that moment like of course it's like an amazing job and I'm not in. Yeah but that implies so that we can never talk about what we do and I think. That's a bummer. I know you're right. You're right that's an interesting way to put it because there is that feeling of especially during this time to there's this feeling of like we're so fortunate to have a bunch of you know can chilly and Yeah Pasta and our pantry and toilet paper although Brennan Pretty Low on the paper towel situation. We just ordered bamboo toilet paper because the only thing we could or I don't know I haven't touched it. I everything that comes to the house. I pretend is like radioactive has to stay in the garage for like a week. Yeah 'cause that's were that's how wide I'm crazy today. I know I know Okay wait so that I wanted to ask you to the. Oh if there was a young like eighteen year old sensitive ingenue. Who has been late every day for the first week of Shooting League How do you deal with that as a leader? Because when I did House bunny I mean I wasn't directing it or anything but I did have a pretty sweet trailer Elizabeth. Douglas get that trailer again. I have no doubt you're number one on the call and number one on the call. Sheet is a really important raw on a set. It's like it's it sets the tone for the entire film set. How would you deal with that kind of scenario? I'm sure you've had to deal with the managing of sensitive personalities. Like all across the board. I think communication is what you try to do. Would you pull that person? Aside like how how private of course I mean I usually try and bring a producer. Someone else in to the conversation so it doesn't feel unless that would feel like it's gang up because I think that's never good either but I think being able to try and meet that person where they are. It's almost always insecurity. It's almost always something's going on so right that is not about the movie it. Some personal insecurities going on or like you know. I've not been in a situation where someone's being harassed or like they don't. WanNa come.

"I think that's the other thing that for me at least again is like that sense of camaraderie and all these sort of anecdotes. What I love about the moment into there's very few things that I about. Social Media and the data aggregate of the world but one of the things. I love is because of big data. Everyone all of these things that were like. Maybe this is happening. You know maybe women are being a harasser and then it's like no no he take a quick poll. Hashtag me to look it up. We've all been harassed at work right. And so there's no way anymore for those in power to ignore the aggregate of big data level right. It's like you can't just dismiss it as sort of like well. That's one girl. That's something that happened officer. That was one guy who got accused. It's like guys. This is a systemic problem. That is deep end rooted in the way that we set up our world and when we to sort of acknowledge it and try and get through it and passed it. I think that's the one thing that I like about big data. That's an amazing way to put it and I think you're completely right. What's been tricky for me. I think like you. I'm not easily offended so I don't want to be treated with any degree of preciousness. Yeah in less than during his dont. I mean I'll be honest. I haven't really found that meeting. I I have not been treated with a lot of preciousness I mean I think I I put people at ease pretty quickly. We're very much like you know the cor corporate structure to for me if people need to feel uncomfortable while we work through this. I'm totally fine with that. Yeah so you've been married for eleven years. Is that by two thousand three. So how many is that seventeen years in July? I met him though. We've been together since nineteen ninety two and you guys met in college. I Save College. I met on my first day of college. Yep He was a year older than me. He was a sophomore a freshman I met him in front of a Frat House. When you first met your husband did you think oh like Frat dish or anything. I don't even know if like my mom hates it when I say Douche. I don't even love that word that much. Not because it offends me but it just feels not very creative But did you think like were you was that turn like how did the court go? Yeah I think the word that I liked from that time period was tool. Yeah yeah so I would say he was definitely. He seemed a little bit like a tool. May that being said I was attracted to him pretty quickly. I think he was at the time when I met us. Nineteen when I met him and I think all nineteen year old guys that are in frats tools. Like there's no getting around it. He was. He was a sophomore. All the freshmen is were like beneath him. When he was a freshman I think he knew. It was kind of a bummer. To be a freshman dude now now that he was a sophomore. He was excited so he definitely had an attitude. Like I know what's up and I'll I'll show you the ropes and I'll take you around and I'll teach you stuff and you know I remember thinking like okay. I know I love your smile right now because it's so seems like you had this all knock down and you're like you will. You're not wrong. He was actually we joke because he was really interested in this other girl Kate. She was a twin. I think she was in the nursing school. She was the nicest girl had amazing voice like a deep cool voice. It was a great girl. I don't think it was ever actually interested in my now husband. He was definitely interested in her. And I knew that and I was like article. Whatever you don't think he was just saying that now like I would like. I liked like everyone likes. Yes but don't you think that like guys are taught like if when you really like a girl you start talking about like another girl like Nag? Yeah the May have been a game movement little gamy. Maybe I like that idea regardless I think like within ten days we were on our first date we. I ran into a bunch of times after that first meeting. And you know it's not like. I didn't go to a small into a really big school so the fact that I kept running into him fell very faded. Oh my God. Did you find out later that he was very kind of knew? None of it was just truly like he started rushing a guy that lived on my floor and we both were doing. Communications causes in the same building. We would like cross each other and it's crazy. I went to a really big school as well. And you went to University of Pennsylvania's right. Yeah I went to University of Washington and I kept running into my ex-boyfriend all the time as well but that was because I was stocking head quickly memorized class schedule. And be like Oh. Hey so that's crazy. So how are things like I? Actually I have a boyfriend at the time when I went. Well I had a high school boyfriend. His name is Brian. He was the best he taught me so much about love. And you know I lost my virginity to him and he was sweetheart great family. Nobody has the story. I now I now I had like the best high school boyfriend would happens then and so we drifting I think neither one of us were like interested in doing long distance particularly me. I can admit I was less interested in that probably was. He went away to school in the summer before. I did like a month before I did. And by the time I got to school I was already like all right. I WANNA be a little bit of a player. I've done my high school way friend. I'm ready to rock and roll. I met my husband day one and then I still getting calls from my ex right. Who was at a different school? And we kind of broke. Up It sucked. I actually went and visited him on this one weekend. I took a bus ride out there to see him like a greyhound. Bus Rows like all right. This is the weekend you're going to tell him like we're doing it. It was clear we both knew it. I went I met some of his friends. It was great we did break up in everything that that entails happened and then he started dating another girl who dated for a long time like we were just we were right for each other and he has a lovely life now and still has a great family and all those things so it was. It was great. I love it that you took a greyhound to break up. I called my first husband over the phone. That's the kind of ex- I am. Now I took the Greyhound I went on. I knew were breaking up. I knew I was already falling for my now husband. I was so hung over on the bus ride. My husband had gotten meat so wasted the night before he also given me A. Hickey hit marks his territory side took a Hickey to see my high school friend. He's going to hear this and I I hope he does because I truly. I adore him his name again. Ryan Zuma's Brian. Hi Bra I hope you this. I think you will. I like how healthy is at an annoyingly healthy Elizabeth. I mean not runner for I'll tell you I had a great really great has different. Yeah well rays. Have you been heartbroken? Before will he broke up with me? We've been dating. I think actually remember. We've been dated for twenty two months because his high school number was twenty two and I made him like Ajello cake in twenty two and I brought it over and his parents. I think freaked out that we've been dating for twenty. Two months is a long time two years in high school and then the next thing I knew he had broken up with me and I. I've never cried harder in my life. Actually not and then we got back together. Of course I gotta do. Don't you think there's like that slow time? Line of like especially when you're dating somebody at that age. There's like the break-up and then getting back together like a couple of months and then another break up and then getting back together for an even shorter period of time and then another break. And it's all dramatic and your friends have to listen to it. And it's like this. Slow weaning of your. I like that dizziness of you know narcissistic.

"How are you doing like Inbet- Corentin Corentin? Are you home schooling yet? What are you on spring break? I think my son has been homeschooling me more than I have been him. But we are. Our show is off for the season. We took an early hiatus and everything And what about you guys? I know that a lot of movies have been we. Were not in the middle of anything and we we have a writer's room that's up and running which is Great Abbas. Show coming out Mrs America in April on Ethics on Hulu that was already happening Kuzina. That's one of the great ones where I got to go work with like so many amazing women so happy about. I love that you do that. You've been such a pioneer when doing press for as a director what time to be the most annoying questions like as a female director is it so female centric. It's hard. It's really hard. It's hard because you get a lot of look at you feminists and you're like I'm just trying to be a filmmaker. I just happened to tell a story about a bunch of women. I don't know back in the day Jane campion. I'm sure it was not asked like you made the piano with the female star in this little girl and a pack win. How what is your big feminist statement? It's hard because you at the same time the journalists. I feel need validation that women are doing better down a beacon of some offensive. Hope right right so so I don't want to dismiss it but I also I didn't sign up to direct movies because I felt like I was meant to make some grand feminist statements in gestures. You it's really not why I'm doing it so I do find that the messaging can cloud what the movie is. What the work is actually doing? I do not get asked a lot about like lenses or you know cinematography or any of the sort of technical stuff but I obviously also have to master to direct like big huge productions. I find that really fascinating like no one's interested in that and wondered if you ever got asked like Ooh did you like doing the action sequence in. Charlie's like all that kind of Shit that they would never ask good. I've been asset the three times. I think I've been like actually offended because it takes a lot to offend me. I love that about you. People bring their own shit to every inner yet. You're you know you're just like okay. I got asked on pitch perfect two. Who picked all the music and I was like yes so I got to pick all the music with buying music supervisor. old team that puts music together yet but who decided what the songs were. Yes so I got to decide. Obviously it's you know. I directed the movie. I I it the buck stops with. May I have to like pick the songs and you know figure out what the yes? Yes but like. Who's now that I just like? What do you really think it's impossible than I could have picked these songs? I thought was so interesting and I had produced the first movie and I don't recall our mail director. Jason Moore. Who is brilliant? I don't recall him being questioned about if he had really done it. Do you know what I mean. That was like this. Just it like Poke like but but it wasn't really and then same thing kind of happened with the action. Sequences it was like you know and tries needles bid of so but who came up with the action sequence. You don't like my name is on the script so I actually really did say like. I think it would be fine if went to a racetrack. In here's what I'm thinking happens to the racetrack and that I have to write it down to communicate it and then we have to have to hire the right people. I have to choreograph than we have to shoot it correctly in the NAFTA edited and put it in a movie like I actually did have to do all of that but it was. It was interesting. There were people who were like. Yeah but I mean the second unit and you had there was someone else seven so the stunt coordinator. He did a lot. You're like what I do know the casting was not your choice because I was told I was totally wanted to go if a if it were up to me of course up to me. Listen Elizabeth I can be a bad ass. I'm one hundred percent clear on how bad feeling at the time I was offended. Was someone came in and said you do so much? Don't ever just WanNa take a bath and night bus. No I don't I mean I take showers anyway. I'm not really a bat person. But that's such a weird question to ask in a professional setting of a professional person. Don't you think that is one step deeper like the first step is like oh I've met with Elizabeth Banks? We met at this West Hollywood hotspot. She ordered a salad with Sun. Dried Tomato Elizabeth is slowly picking it yourself. It's like okay and then we don't want to just take a bath. I mean Dallas and bad but I will also say that I am grateful that I interviewed about anything at all. I'm grateful to make things and that I get to tell people about it and at the end of the day. I know in wonder too though if we are. Are we supposed to be feeling more grateful? But because people like you people get opportunities and thank you so much for being a trailblazer. Oh my goodness you know one of the things for me. That came out of me. To a little bit was I did feel a real sense of camaraderie with the women in my industry. That not really felt before there was always sort of unspoken anecdotes. And you know the idea like you go to a set and you're the only woman I rarely made movies where I'm an actor. I have now as producer and a director been able to make movies with lots of women but prior to that prior to meet doing it the amount of time I went to set up a bunch of girls that never happened never end if there is another girl were pitted against each other characterize usually coup lately. Yeah I just find that that. The entire system is being is being shaken. Or it's not you get these really great moments where we shake things up. Whether it's like when we got the right to vote like a hundred years ago we shook things up you know and then it's like but then we didn't get the IRA and we. Then we got Roe v Wade but like now maybe less than one generation later. We might not get it anymore. I just it's like to me. I feel like women are constantly reminded whether it's an as we were talking about the beginning of this conversation. Going to set and being like the only girl or going to set the crew is you know whatever seventy percent men usually standing around you just realize that we live in a world that's built for guys and so I don't think guys even understand and I know my on husband very sweetly like we've had conversations where he's like Babe I am never gonNA feel it deep level in the way that you are. GonNa feel it because he's like. I can't do what I want with my body I have body a autonomy. But it's never going to be an issue for me right like. I can be a landowner. Like they're never gonNa take that away from me and he think like yeah. That's that's what he's been taught. I have not spoken much at all about the metoo movement and I feel really guilty about that because I have a lot of thoughts but I feel guilty because it it felt to me like what do I contribute. I think you can absolve yourself of that. I really do. I think that it's no one's job to be a spokesperson for anything other than our own experience and an even that like you don't owe that to anybody you don't owe it to your listeners. To me I don't think you owe that to anyone that you don't want to tell those stories to and I asked to say absolve yourself of that. I don't think it's necessary that every single woman talk about it I by the way. I think it's obvious. Hashtag meat to the every single one of us has seen too many dicks that we didn't want to say that we've all they were all gorgeous in my experience. I had so many like memory jobs during the initial days of me too. I remember that thing that happened. Yeah Yeah did yeah. If a little funky at the time turns out it was yeah turns out. Everybody was experiencing that to cat cocoa. Yeah.

But because people like you people get opportunities and thank you so much for being a trailblazer. Oh my goodness! Things for me that came out of me to a little bit was I did feel a real sense of camaraderie with the women in my industry, that not really felt before there was always sort of unspoken anecdotes, and you know the idea like you go to a set, and you're the only woman I rarely made movies where I'm an actor have now as producer and a director been able to make movies. Movies with lots of women, but prior to that prior to meet doing it. The amount of time I went to set up a bunch of girls that never happened never end. If there is another girl were pitted against each other, characterize usually coup lately. Yeah, I just find that that the entire system is being is being shaken, or it's not you get these really great moments where we shake things up. Up whether it's like when we got the right to vote like a hundred years ago, we shook up. You know, and then it's like, but then we didn't get the IRA, and we then we got Roe v Wade, but like now maybe less than one generation later we might not get it anymore I. Just it's like to me. I feel like women are constantly reminded whether it's an as we were talking. Talking about the beginning of this conversation, going to set and being like the only girl or going to set the crew, is you know whatever seventy percent men usually standing around? You just realize that we live in a world that's built for guys and so I. Don't think guys even understand and I. Know my on husband very sweetly like we've had conversations where he's like Babe I am never gonNA. Feel it. Deep level in the way that you are GonNa feel it because he's like. I can do what I want with my body I have body a autonomy. It's never going to be an issue for me. Right like I can be a landowner like they're never gonNA. Take that away from me and. He think like yeah, that's that's what he's been taught. I have not spoken much at all about the me too movement, and I feel really guilty about that because I have a lot of thoughts, but I feel guilty because it. It felt to me like. What do I contribute? I think you can absolve yourself of that I. Really Do I. think that it's No one's job to be a spokesperson for anything other than our own experience and an even that like you don't owe that to anybody. You don't owe it to your listeners to me. I don't think you owe that to anyone that you don't want to tell those stories. To say absolve yourself of that. I don't think it's necessary that every single woman talk about it I by the way I think it's obvious Hashtag. The single one of us has.

I said this woman's cutting Haft where the body was cut in half it was done very very almost almost professionally like a meat cutter a guy who had knowledge of of addressing the year down in the field or something like that reporters from the Los Angeles Examiner found contact information for Elizabeth's mother phoebe short. WHO's living in Boston at the time? They phoned phoebe but they didn't tell her that Elizabeth had died or had been murdered or anything. They told her that her daughter had just WANNA beauty contests and they wanted to know. More information about our background continence sort of baited her into giving some background information about Elizabeth. So phoebe told them that. Her daughter was movie struck and that she came out west to California -fornia because everyone used to tell her how beautiful she was and she wanted to pursue a career in modeling acting. The reason people still come to La to this day. This is really up up. That isn't we do do that. Yes unethical things all the time for this sort of information. This was one of the things that happened all the time. This is really bad so it was only after. She gave his information about her daughter. Elizabeth who she loved and adored and was. I'm sure happy to rave about out thinking that she'd want a beauty contest that she learned the real truth about why these reporters were calling. Her daughter had been murdered. Murdered her ethically in her body had had been desecrated. Here's Elizabeth's mother. phoebe short discussing her daughter in an interview that was conducted many years after the murder. She was very Korea and affectionate sweet girl and if she was out at night Gio is stopped in my bedroom to talk and then she would talk and talk and tell everything she had done and everything and now here's Mary a childhood friend of Elizabeth's full statuesque risk and had a real warmth about her. She loved people th- reporters have their storyline storyline and now they had to flush out their characters in this horror movie. They didn't know who the monster was for now. QB described as a sex ex- fiend slayer or the Werewolf murderer but the victim. The victim story would be portrayed initially as a cocktail of pretty small town girl who moves to Hollywood set to become a star. Elizabeth Short was born in Hyde Park Massachusetts. She lived with four sisters and her mother their father had left the family in nineteen thirty. Already she attended Medford High School and a friend of hers said Doddie. which is sister betty who they often called? Elizabeth and I were going to be movie. Stars is a quote we were all in trance. With movie stars starstruck. We spend hours talking about movie stars about going to Hollywood. We performed using the shorts front porch as a stage and Elizabeth left school early because of a long Aleman which led her to warmer climates. She waited tables in Miami where she met a Flying Tigers pilot named Matt Gore. Let's find in titus. It's just a name of a squadron. So he was like a fighter pilot. Flying Tigers is like a a military coup. Thanks and so he was soon sent overseas and according to Steve Hotels book the Black Dahlia Venture. She reportedly wrote him twenty seven letters in the first eleven days that he was gone. She moved Out to Santa Barbara in January of nineteen forty three and she told friends that court proposed to her in April of nineteen forty five but tragically. He was killed in a plane crash few months later Elizabeth then went back to Miami then back to Massachusetts then finally to Hollywood and her mother told reporters at Elizabeth was in a few movies but the actors strike dried up roles so she was taking a break and living in San Diego but just days later the narrative began to turn on Elizabeth and the reporters. Were happy around with it. They talked with Lynn Martin. A former roommate of Elizabeth's in the to actually lived together when a group of nine girls all showed a place on north north Cherokee Avenue in Hollywood. And it's literally blocks from where we sit at this moment will and also that just reminds me of when we're younger and we shared a house with a bunch of girls. We had five live girl remains but we had crystal Lacey also living with us so we were at least seven. Oh always living in a house on what was visit Omar. Yeah up in Hollywood too so this is a very very common narrative for people who just drive in La. It's like you don't know one in. LA is from La. So it's like we're all coming here together and and you WanNa find friendships and you end up living in a house with a bunch of girls and that's how you sort of start your life. Here it's blocks from where we're sitting at this very moment and Lynn. Elizabeth Elizabeth Roommate was only fifteen at the time and she was an aspiring singer and actor and she painted a picture of the lifestyle that she elizabeth and women like them were leading at this time she said to the examiner. There are many like me. Women had meager salaries who are forced to accept pickups in pickups isn't really lia term that we're all familiar with in this day and age would pick ups were men would by women dinner and then possibly pay for other sort of essentials. Maybe utilities utilities. Maybe this that and they sort of took care of these women and they learn that after Elizabeth Short moved out of the Cherokee House. She moved to a studio Jio City Motel with another group of young women there. They learned that Elizabeth quote had a different boyfriend every night. Which I think is an unfair statement but it is what it is? Yeah so the police worked track down the various men in her life and they started with Joseph fickling. Elizabeth Elizabeth had told friends that she was once engaged to this man but he denied it and the Times reported that he was wary of the girls feelings for him and uncertain that Romance. It's might not be any more permanent than her interest in more than twenty other boyfriends so fickling actually sent her a hundred dollar money order in December of nineteen forty six and. She wrote him a letter a week before her murder but he had an alibi and was cleared so the papers talked about details like the former roommate. Who Said Elizabeth used to sit at the bar angle her leg so people could catch a glimpse of the Rose Tattoo on her thigh another frontal the La Times quote? She was always going out and she loved to prow the boulevard. We know before you move on though. I WanNa talk about Tattoo in this era. Yeah in what do we know about it. Do you know anything about like tattoos. Tattoos Tattoos back in the forties forties. They were definitely more male upper sailors and things like that women getting tattoos. No it was not nearly comet it is it is now but anyways about her friends. They allegedly were hinting that she was a sex worker and within a few days the narrative started started to change. She was now a wannabe. starlet turned desperate. Hollywood party girl. The media was as cold as brutal towards women then as it is now times change but they stay they stay the same. It's at this point that the media was portraying Elizabeth to be involved in sex work and things of of that nature but there was no truth to that. Here's Harry Hansen. He's no longer live but he was one of the original Black Dahlia detectives on the case..

Henry had disobeyed the pope and left the Catholic church in order to divorce his first wife and Mary in Berlin. The two desperately wanted a male heir.

There she was included in ceremonial occasions. She was a remarkable and and serious child of great intelligence. She was schooled by a series of tutors and received a level of education that was generally reserved for men at that time like her mother. She was a devoted Protestant when Henry finally did have a son with his third wife Jane Seymour. Elizabeth was named third in line to the throne thrown after her baby half brother Edward and her older half sister Mary. Elizabeth was close with Edward and developed an affectionate relationship up with King. Henry's sixth and final wife Catherine Parr upon Henry's death in fifteen forty seven.

He was charged with having flirted and attempted Tamari Elizabeth even before his wife died. Elizabeth was calm cool and collected. During the whole interrogation of Thomas Seymour's actions it's that determined level fierceness would define Elizabeth's life and reign the drama of Edward's reign. It was nothing compared to what came after Edward. who was a protestant like Elizabeth died in fifteen fifty three and their half sister? Mary ascended to the throne. Mary was a devout Catholic and was determined to return England to the Roman Catholic Church. Mary Elizabeth's religious differences endangered Elizabeth's Elizabeth Life. She became the figurehead of Protestant plots even if she wasn't actively involved in attempts to overthrow her sister. Elizabeth was arrested. Nearly beheaded released closely watched when Mary died childless in fifteen fifty eight. Elizabeth took the throne from the very beginning beginning of her reign. Elizabeth masterfully crafted mythic perception of herself and the crown she artfully balanced. The appearance of flexibility and generosity Rossio with steel like strengh. The first weeks of her rule were quite busy. Both symbolically and politically. She entered London jubilant coronation coronation procession reduce the size of the Privy Council and restructured the Royal Household Elizabeth's abilities to cultivate her image and to maneuver maneuver politically or particularly remarkable and necessary due to her gender. In that era it was widely accepted. That women were incapable ripple of leadership. It was believed that men were naturally bestowed with the gifts with authority whereas women were unfit to rule but Elizabeth used her gender to her advantage. She was determinedly single and refused to marry before and during her reign instead she often often spoke of herself as the spouse or mother of the kingdom she dressed in lavish clothing and kept a tight grip on how her likeness was portrayed to the public. As nearly always the case with monarchy's the question of establishing an air was seen as paramount by many during Elizabeth's rule all while the development of the Virgin Clean Persona was helpful. Inspiring a kind of mythic aura. It instilled fear in Elizabeth's Protestant followers. If she didn't have children she would be. The end of the Tudor Line. The next in line to the throne was Mary. Queen of Scots who is Catholic and was thereby supported by the Catholic countries on the continent and English citizens still loyal to the Catholic church Elizabeth's unwillingness to marry was likely equi caused by her desire to fully retain power. She wasn't a fan of unsolicited advice from anyone let alone a potential husband and seemed surprisingly ising Louis unconcerned about the line of succession. This same sentiment regarding power put a strain on her relationship with parliament which she had to rely upon for rabid even though not extremely religious herself religious conflict plagued Elizabeth's white in fifteen aid Pope Gregory the thirteenth said it would not be a sin to kill the Protestant leader and fear of an assassination attempt grew in response. Elizabeth's Privy Council created the bond of association. The signatories agreed that. If an attempt was made on the Queen's life they would kill the assassins as well as the person in whose interest the attempt had been made this specifically targeted Mary Queen of Scots who had been implicated in attempts on Elizabeth's life if because of such plots and unbeknownst to Elizabeth. Mary was beheaded in fifteen eighty seven. The Queen responded responded with grief and wrote to Mary. Son James saying that she had not intended for Mary to actually be killed Elizabeth's Protestant faith also put her at odds with powerful foreign leaders including those of France and Spain.

The Queen was prepared. I fear neither him nor his priests nor his armies. She had a well armed fleet of ships. Despite the fact that the Spanish armada was seen as unbeatable beatable.

"I have okay so back to the episode all right so this episode just to bring us into context we. This episode is coming out on the second Sunday of advent. Now you may have heard about bent because lots of retailers they make these advent calendars that start on December first and they have those teeny tiny goodies to open each day until Christmas. And and don't get it twisted. Those are wholly but in religious circles. Evan is the period of the four Sundays before Christmas. The start date shifts each year but this year it also begins on December December. First now we did a whole season on advance. Go back if you haven't listened to season for which focuses on the birth of Jesus but we do talk a lot about Mary. Joseph and kid rock so today we are in the New Testament section of the Bible but for a second. Let's reflect back on the Old Testament so the ultimate is divided into three parts their narrative books wisdom books and profit books now spoke through prophets. The last prophet book in the Old Testament is Malachi so inbetween Malachi and the New Testament. There's about four hundred years have passed and do not have a fresh word from God. And so we're picking up at the end of that four hundred years now. Remember four hundred years if you're like a long time. Yeah that's like twelve to thirteen. Generations have passed for example the pilgrims arrived on Plymouth rock four hundred years ago from today. Okay wow so now today today like maybe today it depends on your list. You don't know it could be cavs sixteen twenty times a contract. Don't make us do this. And you're not a historical scholar. When did they arrive on with him? But at the time it also remember haired the greatest king he rules Judea Samaria and Galilee basically as a police state historian said that Jesus was essentially born into a third world context under a military Dictatorship Rome has a son. Herod the great as this King of this local area which is basically mostly Jews Syria Ten percent of of the population is noble and ninety percent are carrying the weight for the ten percent to keep them wealthy to keep them well off and so people are up to their ears. And even Jews are factions and groups like the Pharisees and the seas and the zealots and so even within their own community everybody's fractured. So this is a very tough moment of Dartmouth in the in the history of it's very fraught and I think I think it's a fair statement to say. Messiah talk was rampant. There are a lot of pretenders there are a lot of people presuming and a proposing themselves as Messiah so the idea that context feeding to the story is particularly interesting because Uh We must assume a lot of those were self-imposed titles he just a guy who was like in the fair. I think that was a pickup line. I saw cross my macaroni caroni and I think on the Messiah now girl so you WanNa go out but none of them had that kid rock. Bollywood Hey guess what it is is is is the kiss of destiny. So why don't we get directly into the text because there is a lot of tax cuts hug about in today's episode so starting out Luke One verse five. In the days of haired King. Today there was a priest Zachariah of the division of Aba. I don't know maybe. And he had a wife from the daughters of Aaron and her name was Elizabeth and with righteous for God walking blameless and all the community and statues of the Lord Word but they had no child because Elizabeth was born and both were advanced in years. Do you think now Lucas a doctor. Luke is writing this book blue. Okay Okay Lucas. Note New Testament. Dr Patrick Quinn met. I don't want to share my man like take blood. Maybe like I duNNo. Bat Back. Tradition said that Zachariah could have divorced her to marry baby mamas because to not have a kid was a big deal. Sure because it most people thought we've been cursed by God because there's something wrong with you you're a bad person like Zachariah pre so it's feel like this was like well Elizabeth. Well No. You're not wrong and that was like a note because I don't know there's maybe Eric can speak more to this. But if you have a kid I feel like it wasn't always like him is a her. I don't know let's figure it out. I think it was always just like it's her. She's the problem I mean. Hello if he's redes- filled with eighty-eight it could be. I could look no shade regis. He doesn't seem particularly fertile. In this moment right. And that's okay. You're not supposed to be eighty eight. Did you know because you mentioned earlier. We mentioned him here in this. I do you know who is a distant relative of no come on we may have referenced in our last episode. Mystery saw himself interesting. I did not know that that's interesting. Two roads diverged twin. Would big time interesting okay. I say now while he was serving as priests for God when his vision was on duty according to the customer the priesthood. He was chosen by to enter the Temple of Lord and burn incense so this is saying stuff modern context. I don't really know what this is like. It feels like something important happening. But I don't really know the extent of the importance so he's going into the priests would go into the holy of holies and he would burn incense so it's like a fragrance to God and this is like during the time of prayer and their thousands literally. This was twice a year right so this was thousands of priests and it. It lasts a week. There are thousands of priest. So you have to do a lottery to figure out who gets to be the priest who gets to light the infant so it's actually quite the luck of the God God Almighty it. It'd be because I've never been to me. This was always kind of glossed over and it was like he did a thing and then stuff happened. I saw anywhere from up to twenty thousand priests were involved in this and I think like I put in context like I can understand. This'll be like Working for Amazon. And someone being like. Guess what you've won the right to shine. Jeff bezos is bald head. It's you this year. It's the biggest deal. Thank you so much like singing. The role national anthem. It's a very big deal. Also because it's God like it is literally God it's like the preeminence of your whole way of life. You're the guy this year well and you. No people were like God is doing the lottery. Yeah these are these are people who really would be like. Oh I must be really important. Yeah US and so if you think about it. They might have this reputation of if if you've been cursed that's why you have a kid. This is like a big so I would think for their family. This is already like a big win. Because they're constantly having to deal with the shame of not having a baby. Yeah we're sending a camp is something going on. This is like a big win for the family to be like wait. Wait Yeah I get to be the guy. This is such a big deal. My Man's American idol this year. So that's a big deal so so don't forget that feeds into like the importance of this story is my favorite part about. The holidays is reconnecting with family.

"But as always after the primary, I will vote for whoever it is even if it's Joe fricken Biden, I am not. I am really hoping it's not going to be him. Absolutely. Am not supporting him in the in the primary, but whoever whatever democrat, I don't. It might be a socialist. That's again, I all I care about is the country being better. I don't care about like, oh, you didn't choose my candidate of Elizabeth warrants. I'm not gonna vote. I'm gonna. Let Trump president ruin lives, ruined millions. People's lives because I'm mad that my favorite can't. It wasn't chosen. No, I don't care if it's an outright socialists or something that I mean again, I kinda liked that, but whoever I'm trying to think of the example, whatever, whatever liberal it is and Biden would be one of them. I'm not rooting for Biden in any way, shape or form. But if he's the, he's the guy, then I will be voting for him in the general. So. All right. Let me know. I feel about this again. I absolutely mean no disrespect to any native American tribes. I fully think what Elizabeth Warren said is is valid that they determine their citizenship. I don't think anyone should be taking a test and utilizing some minor DNA result to say that your native American you shouldn't be doing that. Don't do that. I wouldn't do that, but I just think we're being all too fair to deal with more did. So that's my view. Oh, and then Finally, I wanted to bring up Aaron rabbi, of course, the philosophies in space said it really great. I. Think and this is just in in regard to the like, oh, you played into Trump's hand thing. That's, that's another thing people you. He played right into it and said, can everyone please clarify for me what the correct game is to play against the pigeon shitting on the board while thirty percent of the country laughs and calls that winning is that the Rousseau gambit. I really want to understand the move that all her detractors are sure would have worked better against the people who are lighting, the whole game store and fires we speak as I don't. It's so funny how man I, I really gotta get out here, but because it's been such a long episode, but it's people think that unless so in a battle with Trump's of, let's say there's one of these altercations which they're like with stormy Daniels, like with Elizabeth Warren. In this instance, it's almost as though people think if Trump doesn't immediately catch on fire or somehow quit the presidency that he that just means he want like whatever it is he want Elizabeth Warren see at backfired. Did it? What decides that? What? What determines that? The fact that he's still president? Yeah, we'll, he will still be present no matter what he's proven. He can say any number of stupid, factually inaccurate things. And then you can take the fact that he's still president and used that to say while I guess he was right about that. He knows. As planning a hell of a game? No, he's president because people keep him in office because he has Republicans protecting its, there's no game you can play as as Aaron. His capturing that really funny comment. There's nothing you can do that's going to ever heal trouble just stop. Oh, you're right. You got me. I apologize. No, he will never do that. There's nothing sh she didn't play into his hand or out of his hand or any combination of that. She, I think did something that I don't blame her for doing. Maybe you could argue strategically she should have done something else. I'm open to that argument, but I think that this will be a strong way to have the media not do a bunch of fifty fifty articles about her for two more years articles like, well, Trump claims that she's made it all up about our ancestry and she claims that she hasn't..

"Oakland, she will marry England. The text at the end of the movie says that she never saw Dudley in private again. Although on her deathbed, she said to have whispered his name, then it finished by saying that Elizabeth's reign, which lasted for another forty years was called the golden age because it saw England rise to become the richest and most powerful country in Europe. Like most of the scenes we learned about in the film, the overall gist of this has some basis in truth, but there's more to the story. It is true that Elizabeth never married. Many historians believe the reason for her refusing to marry one of the numerous suitors who proposed might have had a little bit more to do a some sort of knowledge that she was infertile. Remember the whole reason everyone wanted her to get married was so she could secure an air if she knew she couldn't do that. Marriage wouldn't have been as big of a deal to her, but all of that is up for debate. In fact, there have been many debates among historians over the centuries. About the real reason why Elizabeth never married. It's one of those things that simple to know for sure without getting inside the mind of someone from history, and we're certainly not going to settle that debate here on this episode and the end. All we know is that Elizabeth never married despite almost fifty years of considering offers from suitors as for whether Elizabeth whispered Roberts name on her deathbed. That's something else. We don't really know. The truth of it certainly has been rumored to be true, but it's not something that we can verify just like, we don't really know if they saw each other and private. We know they saw each other again publicly after all. Robert became the Earl of LeicesteR and fifteen sixty four. And as such worked alongside Williams e- SEL Francis Wapping him in matters of foreign policy for Elizabeth when it comes to their romantic relationship, though Robert analysts were never together in any official capacity. Instead, Robert deli, married, lettuce, Knowles, and fifteen. Seventy eight and Elizabeth never really seemed to get over it ten years after marrying lettuce on September. Fourth fifteen eighty eight, Robert Dudley suddenly fell ill and passed away. He had seen the Queen just a week prior. We're not entirely sure what his cause of death was. But many historians agree. It could have been some form of summit cancer. His death was so an expected. It was said the Queen hid herself in her room for a week. We don't really know if that happened. After Queen Elizabeth died on March twenty four th sixteen or three. There was a letter found among her personal belongings on her bedside on the outside was written. In the queen's hand, his last letter inside was a letter written by Robert to Elizabeth just six days before he passed away. This episode of based on a true story. It was written and produced by me Dan, the fab. If you today story, interesting want to learn more about Queen Elizabeth. There's so many great books out there. And of course you can always watch the second movie in the series called Elizabeth the golden age. And if you see that, you'll know that the Ridolfi we learn about in this episode wasn't the only plot to remove Lisbeth from the throne. Maybe at some point in the future, we'll get to cover that one here on the show as well. But in the meantime, if I had one book to recommend as a starting point, I'd recommend one simply called the first Elizabeth by Kerley Ericsson you can find it anywhere.

Now it's time for the answer to our troops and the lie game from the beginning of the episode as a refresher here are the two truth and one line. Number one, Elizabeth was imprisoned by her sister before she rose to the throne number to Robert Dudley and Queen Elizabeth were secretly married. Number three, the Duke of Norfolk was a part of the plot to murder the Queen. Did you find out which one is ally? The lie is number two, despite many suitors, and to the chagrin of many in her courts. Queen Elizabeth was never married as we learned toward the end. Robert Dudley Earl of LeicesteR on the other hand, did Mary. And that brings us to the end of our story today, but there's always more history to learn.

The two primary ones we see in the film are George Tony's character, the king, Philip second of Spain who sent an ambassador to propose and Vincent ca cells character that Duke eventu- naturally, there's going to be quite a few details in their fictionalized for the film, but the basic gist of all of that is true. It was an early fifteen fifty nine when Elizabeth turned down the hand of king Philip the second of Spain, but the pressure from many around her continued to not. The only form a bond with an external allied, but to solidify the chance for a male heir to the throne through a room urge. And yet just like the movie shows Elizabeth remained single. But that brings us to the Duke of Anjou in the movie. We see this relationship breaking off when we see Vincent ca cells version of engine crossdressing when Kate blankets version of Elizabeth walks in she laughs and leaves effectively ending her courtship with Anju. That specific scene isn't necessarily one pulled straight from history, but it illustrates a point that some historians believed to be true, simply put the idea that the Duke events you both was a suitor for Queen Elizabeth, the first and might have been gay, but there's a lot more to the story. Let's start by clarifying which Duke venue were referring to since that's a title that's been held by multiple people. And this particular case, it could be confusing because there were two different people who held that title than proposed to Elizabeth none at the same time, of course, and that there were multiple suitors for the Queen of England. Wasn't that uncommon. I couldn't find. Verified number in my research. But some places said she had twelve suitors other said twenty to thirty while others just left at vague it several as for the Duke vans you though there were two Francis and Anri since the movie doesn't really give dates. We can't really know for sure when these scenes with Vincent cassette version of the Duke events you are happening. But the movies version of NGO was on re. We know this because it was in fifteen seventy when unreal into the picture as a suitor for lesbian as a way of bolstering relations between France and England. But then after sending to the throne in France in fifteen seventy four, there started being reports that the now king unreal. The third was having sexual encounters with men in his court. It's not something that he was open about because he was quite fervently Catholic and well, the Catholic church saw homosexuality a sin after everything. We've learned about Elizabeth and Kerr dealings with Catholicism. In England. It didn't leave a good taste their mouth for the Catholic faith. So the religious differences were enough to keep Elizabeth uninterested in on re. And quite honestly, probably the other way around to since she was more Protestant. There were some reports of on raven referring to Elizabeth as a whore. Not really the kind of thing you'd expect to hear between two lovers. It was something led by politics as were many of the suitors for Elizabeth. Oh, and even though he doesn't make his way onto the screen in the movie, the Duke of Junie Frances, he got the title. After on re became king, came into the picture as a suitor Elizabeth in fifteen seventy eight. In fact, it was Francis who was the longest running suitor Elizabeth. She considered his proposal for about a decade back in the movie. There's a couple scenes where we see someone trying to kill Cate Blanchett's version of Elizabeth. The first scene where we found out the queen's life was in danger happened when we saw her riding along with Dudley in a boat, then suddenly a body falls near the Queen. A moment later aero lanes just inches from her face. We never see the shooter in this case, but then. Later on. We do see Daniel Craig's character, a priest named John Ballard who is there to harm the Queen with help from the Duke of Norfolk. There's another scene where Daniel Craig's character nearly gets to the Queen, but she's pulled away to the scene of one of Lisbon's ladies in waiting being murdered. It seemed that she wore one of Lisbeth dresses that was laced in poison. As with most of the things we've looked at so far, these specifics of the scenes were of course made up for the film, but the overall gist of these plots against the life of Queen Elizabeth has some base truth. Even though we don't see many of the people driving the plot. There was a plot to kill Elizabeth around this time, and we now know it as the Ridolfi plot that began around fifteen seventy or fifteen seventy one the year after Henry entered the picture as a suitor for Elizabeth, the plot got its name from the main conspirator Roberto Ridolfi who worked as a banker in merchant and was trusted by many of the leaders in Elizabeth's court. But there's one thing revert. Oh, didn't like about Elizabeth. You guessed it? Religion or Berta was Catholic and. He was determined to do something to help regain the English Catholics to their previous stature, as the one true religion in England. Simply the plot was to simultaneously murder Elizabeth to establish a new ruler in the form of Mary. Stuart also known as Mary Queen of Scots, but killing Elizabeth wouldn't be enough. They need some military backing. So Ridolfi and his co conspirators reached out to king felt the second of Spain Pope-eye the fifth and the Spanish governor general of the Netherlands, the Duke evolve. It was revert owes work. It's banker that helped him travel internationally. So often without much suspicion king Philip the second by the way was also one of Lisbeth suitors at one point. Oh, and although the movie doesn't mention this at all. Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned in England around the year fifteen sixty eight. She was kept in prison in various councils around England by Elizabeth for the next eighteen years or so until she was executed in fifteen eighty six. Of course, the movie doesn't really mention that because we see more of it in the second movie Eliza. With the golden age. So we'll learn more about Mary's part of the story and more about how yet another plot to work with these Spanish to establish Mary Stuart on the throne of England came about when we cover that movie as for Ridolfi plot, though the point of bringing this banish military into the picture wasn't to have them annex England, but rather help secure the throne that would then be handed over to Mary Stuart for his part in this the Duke of Norfolk or Thomas Howard. As we learned his real name was tied himself into the plot by reading a statement to confirm he was indeed a Catholic and would back in English revolt against Elizabeth backed by the Spanish. What he got onto this was that Thomas would be married to Mary Stuart after she was given the throne of England. Oh, and maybe it's just me, but I didn't really think the movie did a very good job of explaining Mary. Queen of Scots was the daughter of Mary have g the woman we see running this plot, she's played by fanny Ardant in the movie. So the plot of the poison dressed to kill Elizabeth that the film puts on Mary of key was this plot to put her daughter also named Mary very confusing on the throne of England. But as we know from history that didn't happen, Roberto Ridolfi plot was uncovered in April fifteen seventy one when his messenger was discovered in the English port city of Dover with letters that incriminated a number of people. One of them none other than Thomas Howard, the Duke of Norfolk. Just like the movie shows. He was beheaded for his part in the plot that happened in June fifteen seventy two, which brings me to one of the other conspirators. We see in the movie Mary of g the retaliation we see in the film is that Elizabeth orders, Geoffrey Rush. Version of, sir, Francis Walzing him to kill Mary for her part in the plot. That's something that people have speculated, but there's not really enough proof to say one way or another. If that's what happened, Mary herself diagnosed, the illness that led to her death as drops or more commonly known today as a Dima. That's an excessive accumulation of fluid beneath the skin. It's both quite painful in and Mary's case led to her death. Although it is true that Mary GI was Catholic and wanted her daughters claim on the throne to be validated by the pope, denouncing the legitimacy of Elizabeth's claim to the throne. It's not likely she had involvement and Roberto Ridolfi plot most likely because Mary of g died in fifteen sixty about ten years before Ridolfi plot was uncovered. However, with the plot uncovered and Norfolk's attempt at taking the thrown away from illegible, finished the movie draws to a close as we see Elizabeth declare that she will not take a husband.

"Just before being taken herself. She was beheaded the same day. Oh, and you guessed it? Lady. Jane grey was a Protestant something that clearly worked against her. The leader of the rebellion. Thomas Wyatt was also being held in the tower and on March fourteenth. He was put on trial. The prosecutors tried their best to implicate Elizabeth. In the plot, the even rack Thomas torturing him in an attempt to bring Elizabeth name into it according to the records of the trial, Sir. John born said he had quote labored to makes her Thomas White confess concerning the lady Elizabeth. But unsuccessfully, though torture had been applied and quote. Despite lacking proof as it turns out when the Queen and the Catholic church are coming after you proof isn't always needed on March eighteenth fifteen, fifty four. Mary used this as an excuse to arrest her Protestant half sister, Elizabeth on the charges of being involved in Wyatt's rebellion. For a couple of months. Elizabeth was in the tower of London, then on may twenty second. She was placed under the watch of, Sir, Henry bedding field. He was the Lieutenant of the tower of London at the time, the captain of the guard. So for the next year or so, Elizabeth wasn't a hospice where, sir, betting field at the Royal palace of Hatfield. In the meantime, Mary dealt with her pregnancy. Well, what she thought was her pregnancy. At least it was almost exactly a year later in April fifteen fifty five when Elizabeth pops back into the picture after apparently restoring favor, Elizabeth was invited back to Mary's court to help tend to what must be the late stages of her half sister's pregnancy. In July fifteen, fifty five, Mary stomach, stop swelling. She wasn't pregnant. Moreover, Mary turn this into an opportunity to punish the heretic. Protestants even more by convincing herself that her inability to have a child was punishment from God for allowing prod. Autists in her kingdom, things must have gotten tents again for Lisbeth while the movie makes it seem like things were happening quickly. Here. It wasn't until years later that Mary fell ill. Mary's husband, the Prince, Philip of Spain, visited Marion fifteen, fifty seven. This led Mary to believe she was pregnant yet again, and she decreed that after her baby was born. The following year, Phillip would be made region until the child grew to be on the other hand, if the child didn't survive, Elizabeth would take over and may fifteen fifty eight, Mary fell ill and on November seventeenth fifteen fifty eight, Mary passed away as it turned out, she wasn't pregnant after all, which meant Elizabeth officially began her rain that same day going back to the movie. We see this happen when Kate Blanchett version of Elizabeth receives. Notice that the Earl of Sussex has arrived. She goes out to meet him in a beautiful green meadow underneath a massive tree. It's here that Sussex. Gives Elizabeth the ring that was on Mary's finger and indication that Mary has passed. After handing her the ring Sussex and all those witnessing defend bow and exclaim long live the Queen. Elizabeth then said, this is the Lord's doing. It is marvelous in our eyes. That's a quote from the bible. Psalm one hundred eighteen verse twenty three to be more precise, and it is a common belief that these were the very first words Elizabeth uttered upon hearing of Mary's death. The first words of Elizabeth's reign as for whether this scene is true. Well, that's a little hard to prove. Remember this was happening in November fifteen fifty eight. And while I couldn't find the weather records for fifteen fifty eight in the town of Hatfield in Hertfordshire England where the palace of Hatfield was located, I highly doubt that it was that beautiful scene. We saw the film. However, just like psalm one hundred eighteen twenty three is commonly thought to have been Elizabeth's first words as Queen. So too is the belief that she uttered them underneath the massive oak now known as the Queen. Elizabeth oak. I say, now known as because that tree is still there. Some legends suggest the tree was already about four hundred years old. When king Henry the eighth danced around it with Angolan if he visit the grounds of Greenwich park today, you'll find this plaque alongside the remains of the oak lying on the ground. This ancient tree known as Queen. Elizabeth oak is thought to have implanted in the twelfth century, and it has been hollow for many hundreds of years. It has traditions linking it with Queen Elizabeth, the first king Henry the eighth in his Queen and bolan. It may also have been a walkup for fenders against park rolls. It died in the late nineteenth century and a strong growth of Ivy supported it until it collapsed in June of nineteen ninety. One. The English oak alongside was planted by his Royal highness, the Prince, Philip Duke of Edinburgh, cagey, KT, baron, Greenwich on third December nineteen ninety two. The tree was donated by the Greenwich historical society to Mark the forty years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth the second. So even though the tree isn't alive anymore, it's still resting on its side near the place where it once stood. No, when I probably should point out that Queen Elizabeth oak. Is some twenty one miles or about thirty four kilometers to the south of Hatfield house. Their current house that stands on the grounds with Royal palace of Hatfield was during Elizabeth's time. If the events we see in the movie where true that means would have found out about the Earl of Sussex from inside the Royal palace of Hatfield, and then travel the twenty miles or so from the north side of London to the southeast side to meet the Earl while it's possible. She made that trip the distance, coupled with timing being in November, probably very cold and not necessarily that you know the summer day that looks like in the movie, kind of makes me think that the scene that we saw in the film probably didn't exactly happen that way speaking of which going back to the movie. The next major plot point happens when we see Elizabeth dancing with Joseph finds character Robert Dudley after the to dance together in the center of a crowd in the ballroom, we see Robert and Elizabeth sleep together. As we've seen happen multiple times throughout the film. So far those two scenes are fictional, but they're depicting something that was very real by that. What I mean is that it is true Queen. Elizabeth had a romantic interest in a man named Robert Dudley. We've already talked about him a little bit, but this whole romance between Robert and Elizabeth did happen. Or did it truth is we really don't know for sure the extent of their relationship. One thing we do know is that Elizabeth and Robert were good friends. It's been said that Robert claimed quote, he knew her better than anyone else from when she was eight years old and quote. We also know that eight years before Lisbeth became Queen when Robert was just eighteen years old in the year, fifteen fifty. Something happened that the movie doesn't really mention. He married the daughter of Norfolk. Gentleman named Amy Rob's art. Despite this, there were still plenty of rumors of a relationship between Elizabeth and Robert who became her master of the horse upon her ascension to the throne. That's mostly ceremonial position today, but during Robert's day was an important position, even though the movie doesn't really mention dates by the time fifteen fifty nine rolled around. It was clear to almost anyone in the court that Elizabeth and Robert were in love during all of this ROY. Robert was still married to Amy, although she didn't follow him to court. Oh, and not to get too far ahead of our story. But Amy Dudley died in fifteen sixty when she fell down some stairs and broke her neck at the time, there weren't any charges pressed, but many historians consider her death to be well suspicious back in the movie despite what we see the relationship with Robert and Elizabeth, it's clear that most of the people in her court expect her

"March third, two thousand thirteen. A new TV show premiered on the history channel. It marked a bit of history as the first fully scripted series by the history channel. As of this recording Vikings is still in production. And while it is based on one of the best known Norse legends, it's one of those TV shows that I've always wanted to watch, but Nimick around to checking out. So if you're fan of Vikings, I'd love to hear what you think history channel's Vikings was created and written by Michael Hurst while I haven't checked that one out yet. I've watched one of Michael's earlier shows Showtime's the tudors as the name implies the tutors tells the story of the realty in England, Henry the eighth and bolan and the stories of their salacious courts that brings us to our movie today, which is very much in line with the tutors before working on either the tutors or Vikings. Michael Hirst wrote two movies that together told the story of king Henry the eighth and end Boland's daughter Queen Elizabeth. The first today we're going to be looking at the first of those movies released. In nineteen ninety eight simply called Elizabeth. I'm Dan, the Feb and this is based on a true story. It's time for two truths and a lie. If you knew the show, here's how it works. I'm about to say three things. Two of them are true, which means that one of them is ally. Are you ready? Okay. Here they are. Number one. Elizabeth was imprisoned by her sister before she rose to the throne before Elizabeth Russia. The throne that is number two, Robert Dudley, and Queen Elizabeth were secretly married. Number three, the Duke of Norfolk was a part of the plot to murder the Queen. Got him. Okay. Now, as you're listening to our story today, you'll find the two facts scattered throughout the episode. And then by a simple process of elimination, you'll know which one is ally. And then of course, at the end of the episode, we'll do a recap to see how you did. Now. If you listen to the hausky me episode just a few weeks ago, you'll know about the changes to the show. But before all of that, a couple of people signed up to be producers of based on a true story back when I could guarantee movies. Covered? Not like our last episode Black Hawk Down our movie today is another honoring those commitments for folks who signed up before the changes. And speaking of which this episode is a request from based on a true story producer, Melissa, thanks so much for your support. Melissa actually Melissa requested. I cover both the movie Elizabeth, and its sequel Elizabeth, the golden age. And while at some point, I'm hoping to do the second film in the series at some point before we do that, we actually have to cover the first film. So without further ado, let's get started by comparing history with Hollywood version of Elizabeth. The movie opens with the bit of text to set the scene. We're in England in the year fifteen fifty four king Henry the eighth is dead. England is divided between Catholics and Protestants in the new Queen is Henry's oldest daughter, Mary who is a devoted Catholic. What strikes fear into the heart of the Catholics in power is that Mary doesn't have a child meaning? Should she pass than the line of succession would go to Mary's half sister, Elizabeth, who's Protestant. That's all true. Although it is greatly simplified and for good reason, it's a very complex and fascinating tale of politics that honestly, we don't have time to cover in a ton of depth on this episode. But if you haven't already, I'd recommend checking out the episode about the movie. The other Balint girl where we learned about king Henry the eighth and one of his wives and BA Lynn and a nutshell for our story today, though, king Henry the eighth wanted an air, a male heir, Henry and Catherine did have a daughter Mary who was born in fifteen sixteen. The movie doesn't mention this at all, but it was the very following year in fifteen seventeen. When Martin Luther pinned his ninety five theses to the door of All Saints church while there's been dispute among historians about whether or not he actually did that. But what we do know is that he sent them to the archbishop of manse on October thirty first fifteen seventeen a day that has since become known as ref. Formation day the ninety five theses were essentially what kicked off the Protestant reformation. We can get his deep as we want into the theology of religion, but let me try to give a brief overview of the basic concept of the reformation. It was a stand against the Catholic church. So the Catholic church at the time believed and preached that the pope was God's Representative on earth at such. For the most part, anything the pope said was taken as God's word. Most people at the time couldn't read. So they relied very heavily on what their priests told them even more so than today. But with Johann Gutenberg, inventing the printing press in fourteen thirty six more
