35 Burst results for "Elizabeth Taylor"
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 11/10/23
"Turbulent times call for clear -headed insight that's hard to come by these days, especially on TV. That's where we come in. Salem News Channel has the greatest collection of conservative minds all in one place. People you know and trust, like Dennis Prager, Eric Metaxas, Charlie Kirk, and more. Unfiltered, unapologetic truth. Find what you're searching for at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. Camelot, Camelot, I know it sounds a bit bizarre. Sounds a bit bizarre. Let's guess the birthday, Mr. Mike. Bizarre. Bizarre is the word of the year. Richard Burton, born this date 1925. You know how old he was when he died? He was a young guy, right? 58. Now proving that alcohol is not a preservative. Actually, that wasn't really what got him. He had a lot of health things. I'm not sure the alcohol helped. No, it probably did not. And you know what I watched the other day? You ever do cable laps, dish laps, and you just land on something and you go, oh, this will be worth five minutes, and an hour and a half later, you're still there? The that spectacle was Cleopatra. I mean, the very beginning sort of of their relationship, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. I don't know if the movie is that good in terms of, it looks kind of primitive in the early 60s special effects, but it was amazing for its day. And it was just incredible to watch their interplay. And so happy birthday there for Richard Burton, born this date 25. Keeping it in the show business realm and musicals, I saw last night online, a group of Broadway performers got together in tribute to the children who've been kidnapped and are held hostage in Gaza. And they performed Bring Him Home from the musical Les Miserables. And it's a beautiful ballad. And they changed the lyric to bring them home. Oh my gosh, Mike. And Mark, it's beautiful. I mean, it is absolutely magnificent. And you know, and it's, I brought a tear to my eye. I'm going to play it on the show today. I hope everybody will look it up because it's really a good moment. And here's the moment that I love. And now you're going to get, you're going to lose your mind because one of the most toxic, vicious, lefty entertainers on the planet is one of the performers. That would be Debra Messing from Will and Grace. Oh sure, the red haired lady. Yep. And boy, she just despises Trump and conservatives and everything else. This is a time of strange bedfellows and odd allegiances where a lot of hard, hard lefties realized that the antisemitism of note today is on their side. Let me let you finish though. But it's one of those triangulation moments. No, but that's my point. You made my point for me beautifully, better than I ever could. That's what I like about moments of unity, even in a time of darkness. And I mean, boy, we are in such a dark time right now. And what's so difficult is how people are delusional and not being able to see good versus evil and right versus wrong. And so you're right when there's a moment like this where people can get, and the person who retweeted the musical tribute that I saw an ex last night was Patricia Heaton from Everybody Loves Raymond. She's a conservative, she's not a lefty. And so, and she did a big shout out to these Broadway performers for this beautiful moment. Listen, it was put together by Seth Rudetsky. He's like a sassy Broadway guy who I've listened to for years on satellite radio. And believe me, he's no conservative. They hate Republicans, but you're so right. This isn't about that. And I'm just praying for some clarity, for some wisdom. I saw Hillary Clinton yesterday on The View.

Pat Boone Shares a Story About Elvis and Lisa Marie
"I remember, I don't know, it's got to be close to like 15 years ago or something. When Elizabeth Taylor passed away and Dick Cavett, who I'm privileged to call a friend as I call you friend, he was interviewed on, I don't know what it was. I don't think Larry King was on anymore. But it was one of those shows and he was being asked about Liz Taylor and he said, yeah, she's like the last of the redwoods from that Hollywood era. She's the last one. But he said, but, you know, we shouldn't envy these people because he knew the behind the scenes story that addicted to drugs innumerable failed marriages, alcoholism. I mean, a level of misery that is mostly hidden from the public or it's sold in the tabloids as part of their fun, crazy life. But you know these people as people and you realize it sells itself records, it sells movies, but it destroys lives. It's heartbreaking. Yeah, when Lisa Marie. Died recently and her own son had died of a drug overdose. And I'd been with her just a month before with Priscilla. It was at the 45th anniversary of Elvis's death. And of course, there were still people coming from around the world as they do every year in August. And there's a shrine that was on Elvis at his at his home site. And it's almost like they're coming to commemorate saint Elvis. Because for sure. And he was gone and so they just can't let him go. Well, then in the shadow of all of that, talk about the valley of the shadow of death. Lisa Marie's son died, and then of drugs, and then she died of a heart attack. And I made the statement because I loved them all. I had just been with them. Celebrating, you know, Elvis life. And to some extent, his death, and I made the statement that supreme fantastic success can often be more dangerous, the sudden success than long lives in poverty.

"On spending a lot of my time with them. Obviously, I want to take my time, but I'm very happy and very content and it's such a good feeling just to be at peace. She was like, I am thinking about how not to piss off Kanye and wake him up again. Oh my God. Happy in a relationship girl. I mean, she clearly is. Like, she meets someone. She gets married. So in person. For sure. But. You don't want to be married a hundred times, either. By the way, I think it's fine. I actually want a hundred deeds. I want if I feel like, I think a lot of times, do you guys listen to Joel osteen? Sometimes when I drive to work, I turn it on Joel olsteen radio. And I listen to because it's sorry. No, it's soothing. It's soothing. It's kind of sort of like the word of the day. You know what I mean? Oh, gotcha. And he always says things about how people come into your life and they're supposed to be there for seasons. And the seasons mean something. So I often think that relationships, man, it might not be a 50 year marriage. I agree with you. But if it's a, let's say you were married for ten years. When Kanye, like, that's a success. I agree with you when people say sometimes I'll be at a show, and I'll see a comedian, a lot of times, like, talk about like, this couple right here, 50 years together. Oh my God, give it up, and I'm like, I think they just like, sometimes I just think that people just say, 'cause they're scared to leave. And I don't know that that should be celebrated all the time. Like, sometimes when people get divorced, I go, congratulations, because that is very hard to do to know that that was over. And I don't think that if a marriage ends, it's necessarily that was an unsuccessful marriage. I agree. It doesn't mean that you have to have a 50 year marriage to be successful, but I do feel like she gets married very quickly. Yeah, but I think way to beat. I don't know. I think that she married Damon Thomas. She was young, divorced him, was single for a many years, merry Chris humphreys realized holy hail. This is not my jam. Oh my God. And then was best friends with Kanye and didn't want to wait. She had had a baby, but this form. So there was no waiting. They were best friends. They were soul mates, and I just, I believe, that whenever we criticize people for getting married, it just makes other people not want to be that person. And be criticized for loving love. Yes. I think Jamal got 7 rings. Good for you, girl. Do your thing. That's where I want to be. Elizabeth Taylor. Let's do this. I just like to simplify things and it's very complicated, getting divorced. Yes. And when you have that kind of wealth, it's a business, right? A lot of ways. Your combining to businesses together, essentially, right? So it seems like so difficult. You know what else is difficult? Waking up every day and pretending like you're happy. Oh my God. That is difficult. Try being in that play every single day for 16 hours a day. Yeah. And only having a break for 8 hours when you're going to bed and you're thinking about strangling. I mean, it is what it is. I just think that if the law says there's no cap on marriage, hell, if you want to get married once a year. Totally. Okay. Do it. But I agree with you. Like, I sometimes go, do I want to get married? And I go, no, because I don't want to get divorced. And I know that sounds crazy, but no one getting married ever thinks they're going to get divorced. That's never the plan. So I just don't assume that I'm going to beat the odds, you know? I think that there's just, I'm scared of getting married because I don't want to be divorced because it seems like such a painful process. But Nicki, how many times have you gotten on stage and you had fright about, oh my God, I'm going to bomb this and then you get in it, and it's fine. Yes. Or how many times have you woken up, you go on to do something, and you vomit, but the feeling is not as bad as you thought it was. Right. The regret is not as bad. I just truly believe the reason why we're so afraid of divorce is because we were shamed out of it. If your parents were divorced in the 90s, you know, it was the whispers. Mom's getting a divorce. You know what I mean? I didn't have that 'cause my parents were never married. So one by the never put me through that. Right. But I just remember the shame around it and there shouldn't be shame right now. There should not be. I'm just worried about the paperwork and having to like get to know a lawyer. And wear something to court. I don't have anything. I have to go find a pencil skirt that I don't have. Come on. I think he's gonna get you married. Like today. Girl, I'm three behind. My third marriage right now. Speaking of somebody who almost didn't get married, Gwen Stefani, almost got a job that would have changed Hollywood couples history forever. She told Ellen about it, plus the wildest rumors that she's ever heard about herself. What's the weirdest rumor.

Oh, good job. Good job. Well, that's very smart. I just feel like they're both still very young. And anything can happen, you know? You're right.

Go on, live their lives in 5 years later, find themselves back together. And back in love. That's how I feel about these two because they're going to be two of the biggest stars. In the world.

Roasts Are the Junkyard Dog of Comedy
"And from the standpoint of a comedian who goes to roast, which are the junkyard dog, you know, teeth, gnashing, fucking bloodsport, the roaster blood sports. You know, I go back to a roast many years ago. I mean, maybe some of you heard this, but Johnny Carson was roasting. I'm going to fuck this up. I forget who the roast was for. But Elizabeth Taylor was in the front row, I believe, and Carson said something like we were going to hold this roast, we were looking for a bigger venue for this roast, but Elizabeth Taylor's punch was taken. That's the way the roast began. You know, I don't have to remind you of Ted Danson and Whoopi Goldberg with Ted and blackface. I was at that roast. Linda Stacy and I were one of the two journalists to ever be allowed to attend a roast like that. And it was an honor. And to see Ted, you know, in blackface was startling. You knew it was wrong. His girlfriend Whoopi is right there, apparently Whoopi wrote the jokes from him. Whoopi said the blackface was fine. But the way it opened, where Ted's mom said, ten, I'm worried about you in this whoopee girl. What about, how do you feel about having kids with that? And he said, mom, relax, I'm only fucking her in the ass. I only bring these up to show you how crazy dirty roast are

"And we have proof that true love does exist in Hollywood. Say hello to Kristin Cavallari. Cavallari Cavallari. You got a Cavallari. Yes. Cavalieri and Lonnie love. Thank you. Good to see you again too. Can we start the show off with some good news? Yes. Are you guys? I want to share something with you. Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor are back together after a 5 year separation. Now Ben told esquire that he moved back in with Christine during the pandemic so he could be with their kids. And one thing led to another. Yes. And now they're back on. You see Lamar? It's called a bait and switch. There you go. I love this. It's so sweet. You know, I read the interview that he did talking about it. And it sounds like he's really done the work, which is the most important part. Also, I think it says a lot too that they never actually got a divorce. They were only separated, so they clearly were still hanging on. So I think this is very sweet. I do love this, but yeah, you got to put in the work if it's going to actually make it this time. This is the one good thing we got out of COVID, okay? Is that couples are coming back together? And the thing that he said, it really did sound like he was working on himself. Because he said, you know, he used the metaphor of, I don't like horseback riding. But I love horses. I love to see people riding horses. I like my kids to rub them in pet them. So I had to learn that it's okay that I don't like to horseback ride, but it's okay for other people. So I mean, that was deep Justin. You need to listen? No, it was listening. I was listening, but I have always said on this show, I might have my fault when it comes to relationships. But I know one thing you can not change a person. And that's what he talked about in the article is that instead of trying to change one another, they started appreciating each other for who they were and appreciating their differences and I think that says a lot about a relationship. 'cause you can't change them in, yo. Yeah. I'm trying to control someone too. You're gonna lose your mind. I mean, that's just toxic. So letting someone be them supporting them. And that's not to say you can't ask for what you need in a relationship. I think they're two very different things, but just letting someone be themselves is the most important. For sure. But I think he was the hot person at one point. He was at hot star. Sometimes you let things get to your head. Zoolander. Yeah. Okay. And it's like, now, you know, this has calmed you down. And it's a good thing, and it's a good thing for his family. So, you know, and he's had like the deaths of his parents and things like that. So, you know, when these type of things happen, it really makes you look at life and you want to improve, and I'm happy to see that. No, honey. Three years in a house by yourself. During COVID will make you think about some stuff. Now look, I ran back to next during COVID, you know, for cardiovascular reasons. You know, absolutely. Yeah, you know, doctors say you needed some physical activity. You know what I mean? I went to next in that sense. Okay. Would you ever just run back ten X because of COVID or because of a pandemic to Cain? I wouldn't do it because of a pandemic. I think it's more about familiar, familiarity. Yes, girl. Right? It's like when you're comfortable with someone, it just, it's easy. I've gone back to exes. It's never worked out. So I'm gonna leave that in the past. It's for a reason. But a marriage is a lot different. I do know that I moved in with my current boyfriend because of the pandemic and we're still together. So it didn't break us up. So I think this whole thing, COVID, whatever, has taught people a lot. Either you're gonna be with somebody or you're not, you're gonna improve or you're not, it steals the same. Yeah, but you know what? What? I don't normally get back with exes. But I wanna be like that rich. Old white lady one day who marries her ex-husband again. That's a rich. You know what I mean? Elizabeth Taylor. No. I just.
When Did Marriage Become so Hard?
"To understand marriage. Today we thought it best to go back to a time and place when marriage was very different. Well i've been studying the history of family for many many years. But i specifically got interested in marriage as we got into these debates. About what traditional marriage was that. Stephanie coons. She's a professor at the evergreen state college and the author of the book marriage a history. Stephanie says the earliest marriages had nothing to do with the feelings of two people or their attraction to one. Another as you probably know marriage was much more about economics and acquiring powerful inlaws marriage originally arose in more egalitarian ban level societies as a way of sharing resources and establishing a peaceful relations with groups. That you might otherwise only see occasionally and you might not know if they were going to be friends or enemies It was a way of circulating obligations and goods. Mary my child off to you and that means you owe me things. But i also you things. Stephanie brought up a famous example from history. The union between cleopatra of egypt and mark antony of rome elizabeth taylor as cleopatra siren of the niles this is from a nineteen sixty three film version. Richard burton as mark antony impetuous leader once in pinson legion dreaded adversary on the field of battle. The hollywood version of the story portrays cleopatra and antony as being very much in love but stephanie paints a slightly different picture. I think the theme song for that Relationship could have been what's love got to do with it. They may have been passionate but it was more passion for power than a sexual. Although sexual probably entered into it to cleopatra and antony marriage was primarily about strategy wrong egypt with the two most powerful empires in the world so getting them anybody who got them together and the gotten alliance between them would be unstoppable.

The Grave Robbing Mobsters - burst 1
"Kind of a side story that I'd never heard before and I happened to stumble across while noodling around on the internet in my research on the Chicago outfit. Now, we're going to kind of dip back into the hole in the wall gang a little bit and in regards to the Hole in the Wall Gang. I can't remember if I've said this or not. I had bought a telephone calls back and forth and and helped a guy named Ernie d'avino get connected up with a company that was trying to do a documentary on the Hole in the Wall Gang dead. Ernie died I just found out here recently. So he and Frank cullotta. They were both in the Hole in the Wall Gang. They both claimed credit for starting the Hole in the Wall Gang and I'll tell you right now they didn't really like each other. They didn't really know each other later in life. But see Ernie never broke her knee took the hit and did some time out of that birth escaped her that night and he actually went to Tony Spilotro his trial testified that don't cilantro didn't know anything about that didn't have anything to do with it tried to help him beat that case. Of course. Tony was killed shortly after that. So I don't remember if he was actually found guilty for them all in the Wall Gang versus burglary or not. But in Jonas had no done now both Frank and Ernie or dead, but this is a little different sort of a story and I'm going to start talking about a month Hollywood movie producer man has he was born under the name of Evron go bogging but he became known as Michael Todd. He started out as a young man. He grew up up down. North central part of the United States and moved to Chicago started out in the construction business then kind of got into the film industry when he was working on soundproofing stages when this home when the pictures first changed from Silent to talking films during the Depression, they would go bankrupt but he came back in the construction business and World War Two came along during World War II just start getting into the movie business and right after World War Two probably is like more like the early fifties. He developed a new big screen film processing operation called said, I don't know if you remember Center. Am I remember probably when I was in late grade school, it came out with these huge big screen Productions that were Cinerama. They were mainly web application and had the Big Sky country as a background. He broke off from the company that develops Cinerama, which he had been involved with and developed another widescreen film process wage. Became known as tadeo. And that was immensely popular his I think his first success with that was a film version of the real popular. Musical, Oklahoma. I'll try to sing Oklahoma for you, but it would not sound good. Just remember they spell out. Okay l a h o m a Oklahoma. Okay. That's the extent of my saying folks his next big hit was Around the World in Eighty Days and I remember seeing that I think of it as a freshman in high school or something. It was a huge big production that a lot of fun. It was a comedy and won an Academy Award for the best picture in 1957, but in the very next year 1958 Michael Todd at the very peak of his success, he'd won an Academy Award. He was going all around the country. He was getting all kinds of offers and he was it was going from one part of the country to the other. I can't remember exactly page where it was a small private plane and it was killed in an airplane crash at this point in time. He was also married to the most popular and what some would say the most beautiful actress in Hollywood Elizabeth Taylor dead. That the peak of her career in the fifties. They lived Hollywood Legend through huge big parties. They lived on a lavish scale. He left a huge big estate after he died in this airplane Christ. It was wage estimated three to five million dollars. Now that doesn't seem like so much now in 1957 325 million dollars was probably more like forty to fifty million dollars Thirty to fifty million dollars at the estate office to Elizabeth Taylor and they had a daughter together named Elizabeth Frances and wonder whatever happened Elizabeth Frances Todd, or maybe she used the name of gold bug and I don't know. I've never heard of the daughter off the other half of this state went to his son by a former marriage that Michael Todd Jr. During the years since his death and internment and they had a big funeral and Chicago and he was buried in Chicago but people started a rumor that Elizabeth Taylor as they closed the coffin down on him and put a big ten carat diamond ring that was valued at $100,000 on Thurs. Has been stronger now authorities would later say that anybody who did even a little bit of research in read the newspaper articles about the accent would figure that there probably wasn't enough left a Michael, body to put any kind of a ring on but maybe you know, I guess you might assume she just throw it in the casket with him. I don't know
Tensions simmer over Northern Cyprus' plan to reopen Varosha
"In nineteen seventy, four intervention by Turkish military forces after Greek inspired coup in Cyprus the famous Borussia Resort region was shut down over one hundred hotels with a bed capacity of ten thousand has been empty. No forty six years United Nations Security Council resolution states that the ghost. Count Ghost town. Can only be resettled by its original inhabitants. But now the Turkish. Separate Prime Minister has announced that the beaches there will open today causing much consternation from Cyprus and Greece one, hundred Lucinda Smith. The eastern will correspondent for the Times joins me now Hannah. Thanks thanks for coming on. Can you remind us of the events leading up to the closing of the region? Show well, of course, Cyprus in Nineteen, seventy, four, a war broke out but really the tensions on the been going on for more than a decade already between the two communities. The Greek speaking community on the Turkish speaking community. Now, in nineteen seventy four, what happened was that backed by Greece the Greek Cypriots tend to do. In response to that the Turkish army INVADED IN THE NORTH And progress down to the South and actually the line that they take. Shami was planning to progress to stops just north of Rocha. Rocha shouldn't have been part of the part of the territory take. Mohtashami. But they did in fact, take it. Well, it didn't do was opening up again to the public. They kept originally kind of bargaining chip hyping to sort of extract some concessions from the Greek separate side using this kind of faulting chip of Rocha. But she what's happened is that for forty six years, it's remained behind barbed wire, its military zone, the only people who are allowed. That are Turkish military personnel I'm very occasionally U. N. personnel now. On the did kind few images that we've seen coming from. This is really kind of striking quite eerie. Once, very, very lavish resort place where people like Elizabeth Taylor and severe ran went on holiday. Now just completely crumbling to dust. So what are the latest developments? So actually totta are the north separate prime minister announced. August. That the Russia was going to be redeveloped and reopened. Now this is something entirely near this is who come up cyclically disgust every so often. And so in a way. You know again it's you know one of these ideas and they'll never come to fruition. But as you said on Tuesday nights totta made the announcement while he was nine crowd that is going to be open today, not the whole town, just the beachfront But the really significant thing about this is that that was just five days away from the presidential elections in no Cypress scheduled to be held on Sunday Ersan Tatars candidate in those elections and I think the really interesting thing you mentioned that it's this announcements is met with a huge amount of opposition from. A Greek Cypriots and from Greece is also met with quad loss of opposition from Turkey separates as well It says caused the government of North. Cyprus a coalition government collapsed to one junior partner said it was pulling out that coalition and so her fide by this kind of sudden announcement and submit Prank and I think you know lots of people that know Cypress particularly Essen Tatas political opponents thing. But he's really using this as a kind of political stunt to give him the edge in Sunday's elections but I mean it's illegal isn't it? How does Turkey justify it? It. Is Legal Yeah as you said, according to the UN if anyone's going to be resettled in Russia, they have to be the original residents, most of whom were Greek separates. Now thought present factors has recognized the ship of the proper does the commission up. To, look into how the original owners of properties in brochure could be compensated Most of those people wanted some kind of compensation. Some wanted their properties back. But yeah. The fact is you know if any redevelopment of that town is going take place, there's this two major issues in all Cyprus firstly is the town the for forty six years has just been crumbling into the ground. It's GonNa take music. You're going to have to be kind of a demolished and reconstructed which might work, and secondly that is an she is going to cost Cyprus huge amounts of money if they want to do this in the kind of legal and proper way, and let's not forget the no. Cypress's is a country this only recognized by Ankara, it's pretty widely embargoed eighty four. For its economic survival is much propped up by Ankara saying it's places kind of ready access to to the funds needed to do something like this. So I think the question amongst. People position or is this just an election stunt? Is The beach just going to be open for feed is a member. She was just going to be closing lucky walls before a finally Hannah. How this feed into Turkeys dispute with European Union members Cypress and Greece territorial rights in the eastern Mediterranean. Yes sure I mean I think it's coincidence that is nouncement was made in Ankara. The obviously, no cypresses almost entirely dependent on anchor for it survivor. Essen Tatars. I said is the is kind of anchors favored consciousness elections, but we'll see this is why dispute going on in Syria and Cyprus and in the eastern Mediterranean more broadly which she the tickets very much. The House of it's about the converged UNSEE gas. It's about maritime sovereign say on that those people down over the past few weeks rather still not been resolved and I. Think this is hugely emotional for for separates greek-cypriots particularly, and it's just another thing I. think no guide to sort of. Prolong this arguments this maritime arguments niece.
Fashion and War in America
"Are currently in the midst of international fashion week. Yes and last week. We talked about the origins of the semi-chaotic relationship between fashion and Hollywood film. But we only got into the nineteen thirties so today. We're moving out of the thirties and into the nineteen forties. Which of course takes US straight into World War Two and on the show? We've talked a lot about fashion and war as it relates to Europe during World War One and World War Two but less so about the relationship fashion and war in America and it's actually incredibly fascinating because throughout the nineteen thirties. America's changing perception of their homegrown talent was reflected in Ariz- leading fashion magazines. Such as Vogue and Harper's bazaar at both of those magazines began to feature American fashion designers more and more throughout the decade. Elizabeth Haase reflected on this transitory period in American fashion in her book. Fashion is spinach which was published in nineteen thirty eight and in it. She writes quote in the late twenties ninety percent of the drawings and photographs. Where the work? A prison couturiers and. She's talking about Vogue and Harper's bazaar and then she says many pages and both magazines are now devoted to close created in America for American Life. The outbreak of World War Two and nineteen thirty nine mark significant shift in the fate of American designers who having continued to operate in the shadow of Paris throughout the nineteen thirties. Were suddenly left to stand all on their own and during the German occupation of Paris from June nineteen forty to August nineteen forty four. Many of the leading French couture houses were forced to close and those that did remain open did so under severely limited operations and some pretty severe restrictions as well right and for those of our listeners. Who might not have heard? April actually did a fantastic interview on stuff. You Mr History class which we featured a couple months ago so check it out if you want to learn more about fashion world war two so for the French fashion industry. This meant that communication with America during World War Two. It meant that one of their most important export markets was almost entirely broken and in one thousand nine hundred one after American designers and manufacturers presented promising fall and spring collections New York Times fashion journalist Virginia Pope well. She declared Murck City to be the fashion center of the world and AIRCON designers may have come into their own during the war but they did so under restriction and regulation beginning in nineteen forty two American fashion designers had to grapple with restrictions imposed by regulation l eighty five which were government imposed sanctions at severely limited. Just what designers could and could not produce the purpose of l. eighty-five was to conserve materials. Needed for the war effort and this included fabrics such as silk cotton wool. Leather Rubber Nylon. So you know pretty much. Every material that you need to make clothing and footwear and the regulations thus restricted just. How much material could be used in the making of new garments so we had campaign such as make-do-and-mend which encouraged people to avoid shopping altogether by mending their old clothes. Something we of course support very much today. L. eighty-five essentially challenge the very nature of the fashion industry itself. As we all know depends on the production of new seasonal clothing styles to stimulate consumerism and as we establish last episode Hollywood films while they were actively complacent and encouraging fashion consumption throughout the nineteen thirties and costume designers like their fashion designer. Counterparts were not exempt from L. Eighty five regulations during the war in an eighteen. Forty four article in the New York Times renowned Hollywood costume designer. Edith head called L. Eighty five quote. The greatest boone ever came to fashion designers in Hollywood so it would appear casts that in the nineteen forties costume designers still considered themselves as fashion designers. And she goes on to say about eighty-five quote. It vanished super luxury and brought us all down to Earth. Today we create sensible styles for women the kind that they can actually wear and she goes on to say how. Well I remember the day when we would swirl Fox skins around the hem of a secretary address or wipe satin uniform on a trained nurse. Now we hold to stark realism and by this time had been the head designer at paramount. For seven years she had taken over for her predecessor. Travis Banton in nineteen thirty seven and head like baton began her career in film working with Howard greer in the nineteen twenties as a costume illustrator before climbing the ranks and indeed head is certainly one of the most prolific and fame designers from the Hollywood golden age. Numerous books have been written about this prolific designer who April has eight Academy Awards for best costume design and wait for it. She has four hundred and forty four credits. On that's intense. She worked for almost sixty years in the film industry so she had an incredible career her first credit it dates to nineteen twenty five and her last film is dead. Men Don't wear plaid with Steve Martin. That released after her death in nineteen eighty two so she died in one thousand nine hundred. One at the age of eighty. Three head is quoted and Margaret Bailey's nineteen eighty-two book those Glorious Glamour Years as saying quote. I do not consider a motion picture costume designer necessarily a fashion creator because we do the script tells us to if we do a period piece then we recreate fashion. That was done before. And if we have a character role we do character close. It is only by the accident of a script that calls for fashion an actress that can wear fashion that some of the beautiful clothes will emerge. I don't consider myself a designer in the sense of fashion designer. I am a motion picture costume designer. So just how did head go from identifying as a fashion designer in Hollywood and the nineteen forties to firmly distinguishing herself as a costume designer by the end of her career? I love this answer. You pro because it actually lies with the advent of yours new-look which is a little unexpected as many of us know nineteen forty seven witnessed this dramatic and sudden change in fashion. Thanks to the unprecedented success of Christiane Yours Premier collection and he introduced dresses with nipped in ways. Those padded hips and full long skirts and they stood in direct contrast to the war regulated fashions of years prior which is why so many people loved them. Unfortunately for the many films released the year that this change took place. The costumes were immediately glaringly out of fashion again. Dino Dior's new look was significant reminder. That though film cost you may be perceived and interpreted as fashion it will never be able to truly contend with the whims and follies of contemporary trends. And Edith. Had designed costumes for eleven films that were released in nineteen forty seven so to say that she was affected is a bit of an understatement. Here and looking on this period for the book. Edith head's Hollywood edith reflected quote. I learned my lesson. The hard way just offered Dior brought out the new look every film I had done in the past few months. Looked like something from the bread lines with each screening. I vowed that I would never get caught by fashion trend again and became a confirmed fence sitter. Although despite her weariness of fashion trends did not keep her designs from apparently sparking them as was the case with address she designed for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun which was a nineteen fifty film in a nineteen seventy-eight article for the American Film Journal. Edith wrote my dress for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun was taken up by manufacturer of debutante Party dresses. Someone at paramount wants counted at a party thirty seven Elizabeth Taylor's dancing. All studio designers have created something that influences fashion. But a good costume designer. Shouldn't try to influence style though. Naturally he hopes to hit upon something that many people will like
The Life of Mike Nichols
"Ask Carter and Sam Kashmir join us now they wrote together an oral history of Mike Nichols it's called life isn't everything. Mike Nichols as remembered by one hundred and fifty of his closest friends Sam Ash. Thanks for being here. Just thanks for having US thank you. What was was the genesis of this project? Well after Mike's Death I was at Vanity Fair and wanted to do an oral history as much as we can get away with the magazine and ask had worked as a PA.. With Mike. And I knew him mm somewhat and so I thought it best to join forces and so we did this for the magazine originally and it was so interesting and there was so much material that it just kind of presented itself as a book kind of instantly. As soon as we saw together in the magazine they must have been painful to have to cut. Had it down to magazine size well. The piece was originally assigned at six thousand. Words ran at eleven thousand and still not a word practically about his theater career hear about his time at the compass. Players is a founding member of Improv. I mean there's so much still on the table Ash you're very lucky person having worked as the PA.. What did you work on? I worked on Charlie Wilson's war. That was my first job out of college. I was so upset on hangs Julia Roberts. What was that often? Yes Oh right. Of course. It was a big movie so very often. You felt very distant from where the the real real action was taking place but still. I really feel blessed who've been able to be as close as I was. So you mentioned Charlie. Wilson's war my immediate reaction. Shen is Oh my God. That's Mike Nichols. Also the thing that I think people don't even fully appreciate now is just how incredibly accomplished. He was and for so long so if we could just kind of begin with his I think I real fame fame was with Nichols and may but before we go into each of those stop. Just take us through because I think people may be associated him with the graduate and a couple of other major projects. But let's just list some some of them so people have a sense. Well there was the great success of the Nichols. and May Elaine. May and Mike Nichols as a comedy team. which kind of transformed formed Comedy really and Mike as Director. He and Neil Simon joined forces and he really kind of in a way. Reinvented invented Simon. For Neil Simon. You know with barefoot in the park and the odd couple and as of film director his first film was the Richard Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor. Who's afraid of Virginia? Woolf which frank rich other people believed to be the maybe the best reputation of a of a stage play for film ever the graduate which was second film his second film shocking. JFK transformative you know and Oscar worthy. And then there's all all the stage work Tom Stoppard's the real thing David Raves hurly-burly streamers. Yeah camelot and S- Pamela camelot idle. I mean it's kind of prodian extraordinary range of of gifts that that he I mean. He Directs Spam Lot. I I think two years after doing angels in America for HBO. I mean that's range. I don't WanNa go too much into his early life by. I think it's important to point out that this was a person who arrived here. Didn't speak English. Not as first language goes to the University of Chicago right he meets Elaine. May let's start there. What was it that made that pairing so extraordinary? What did they do? You said that they revolutionized comedy Elaine may was the dangerous genius that entered Mike Nichols life and and changed him she was kind of a combustion engine and he was the steering wheel a little bit. Steve Martin told us the first time. When you listen to those records those bits or you know the sketches? which is he said that the that I heard irony brock kind of modernity to comics situations and things that comedians did not go? Nya such as the cost of funerals was is the time of Jessica Mitford the the American way of death. And you know I mean these are weighty subjects adultery a- adultery right the previous generation of comics from the fifties where people who came from Vaudeville and the Borscht Belt Nichols and may had a theater background around. And you know both the classical repertory but also as Improv actors and by the way they're also both at analysis and brought a level of psychological acuity to comedy that really hasn't been seen before let's just a clip of them from that period some day Arthur. You'll get married and you'll have suit of your own and honey when you do. I only pray that they make us suffer the way you. That's all I pray to mothers. Okay mom thanks for calling you very sarcastic. I'm doing my best now. You call me on on the telephone I me. I'm sorry I'm sorry that bothered you and look I didn't make you feel bad. Are you kidding I feel awful. Oh honey if I could believe that I'd be the happiest mother it's true. What do you think I feel crummy Arthur honey? Why don't you call me sweetheart? That's the one bit. That's kind of in a way close to auto biography at least for Mike that was sort of his mother in a way and and he had a difficult very difficult relationship with her. Are you know after the death of his physician. Father they were really plunged into poverty into serious poverty in in New York. He I used to have to go in the olden days to the Museum of TV and radio to watch these old clips. But now I I'm imagining that. You can see all of this on Youtube. Yeah there's a lot of great stuff and Youtube I encourage people to also look up there The award for total mediocrity that they did at the Emmys when you're in the nineteen fifties so that's just breathtaking. I just actually making fun of their own mirror. You know I mean they're making fun of show business with a successful right away. They were both part of this. Very heavy kind of avant-garde guard group called the compensator in Chicago and the two of them just clicked as their manager. Jack rollins later said there. They were like ham and eggs. They were a local will hit first then they came to New York. He signed them up his clients started booking them at local nightclubs and they were hit right away and then they started going non Jackpot and omnibus and they were hit nationally. So yeah it was. It was really just like that. It was that quick. How does it get from that to? Who's afraid of Virginia? Woolf well well they had a great success Nichols and may on Broadway at the Golden Theatre was an evening with Nichols in May ostensibly directed by Arthur Penn.. You know but not really and Elaine was just sort of tired of doing it and in a way was the comedic version of of the Beatles. Breaking up people were just. I just chop fall in. You know it's tragic. Yes yes yeah. It was kind of a loss in a way They would wind up working together. Other eventually you know as a screenwriter and director but but Mike it kind of put him in in the wilderness for a while He was really at see if we rely on a little bit. When he's got that evening on Broadway with a lame the theater? They were in shared an alley with a theater where her camelot was on stage with Richard Burton and they would kind of hang out after after the show and that's how he kind of got to know him and it was. It's essentially through that meeting Richard in that alley and threw him Liz. They were the ones who hired for Virginia Woolf. When you think about the collaborators he had the people he got to work with you mentioned Arthur panel the you know lately Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor Dustin in Hoffman Jewels pfeiffer on carnal knowledge? It's just you know on and on Meryl Streep the biggest names and your subtitle is is Mike Nichols as remembered by hundred and fifty of his closest friends. Did He. Frequently form friendships during these professional collaborations was. He's one of those the people that everybody felt like they knew. And we're close to make exactly this actors and and many was writers really kind of fell in love with him. I mean we could have called the book seduced by Mike Nichols you know Natalie. Portman really wept recalling. Her work with Mike Sue now. Yeah and that was much later and the closer yes. Yes but also they did stage work together so they were totally devoted to him. I I mean Tom Stoppard. For example said I think his advice memorial you know he thought to himself who is there to to write for he so he was kind of an Avatar to all of these. She's tremendously gifted complicated. People and the friendships were very deep. And Very Real Maureen Dowd. Your colleagues said that he was a null coward figure with the Jersey Kaczynski past and unlike a lot of other people who had a really horrible childhoods he did not kind of wear it on his sleeve and he we've talked about it and didn't particularly want to spend a lot of time thinking about it and I I mean I think this is kind of the key to his career. Longevity Eddie is that he was. Somebody really always wanted to be living in the moment. And kind of looking forward to the next project even up until the end of his life when he had several things that were in progress including masterclass terrence. McNally's play that he was gonNA adapt for. HBO With Meryl Streep. Yeah I mean in a way. Our title is taken from a a model of Mike's life isn't everything but it's kind of a misnomer because it was everything to him. You know in a way I mean he could be difficult to and and some of the people in the booker occur quite open about yes. That Emma Thompson is one right exactly Thompson who who adored him. You know said we're not talking about some saint here so you know and in fact Mike toward the end of his life felt that he had been cruel to people and had betrayed others. You know but he did develop a music also about someone who sort of as much of a genius as he was you know he was also complicated difficult cat and felt like there were people to apologize to. Some people presumably wouldn't talk to you Elaine. May of course wouldn't what about Diane Sawyer and were there other people who you pursued and just said you know what no now. We did approach. Diane we wouldn't have done this actually without her been addiction you know and she gave us the same response that initially initially Sam Beckett gave to digital bear you know which is. I'm not going to stop you but I'm also not going to help you all that much. But when push came to shove and we needed the people such as Meryl Streep she was helpful behind the scenes and Elaine. She did. Give us a blurb. Although we didn't use it and the blurb facetiously officiously said well I I would tell you all I know. But they're going to pay me millions of dollars to write my memoirs something. You'll never do you know. She meant it as kind of a joke before before we go one final question what do you each of you. Thank was Nicholas's greatest work and then also so perhaps a personal favourite may be less known or just something new especially leaden. And why. Let's start with you ash. I would say probably the graduate. It's not the most original choice but I just have seen the movie so many times and I think that it it just has held up so much better than a lot of other youth movies of the time that it was sort of lumped in with that plus the the comedy albums is sort of where my original enthusiasm for him started. But you know I I think catch twenty. Two for example is a movie that has not really gotten. It's do. I think it's actually kind of a brilliant movie that was overshadowed by Mash at the time though it is I see no reason why the existence of Mash prevent people from enjoying it today not an easy novel to adapt to know and but I think him and Buck Henry and we did a credible job adapting it. Sam will I mean. It's so hard to choose. My mother would choose working girl in or Silkwood you know an but are you. Seeing your mother would be wrong. My mother never wrong But for me it's you know the stage work is kind and of extraordinary. I mean the Philip Seymour. Hoffman death of a salesman at the end of life using that was really just is an extraordinary unearth accomplishment. Really it brought him Full Circle Because that streetcar with the two original productions that changed his life really all right. I'm hoping that this interview. If nothing else forces everyone to go to youtube everyone to go and stream every single thing that Mike Nichols did that was available. He was such an incredible credible talent ash. Carter Sam cash. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you so much thank your new book is called. Life isn't everything. Mike Nichols as remembered by one hundred
HIV injections to replace daily pills pass medical trial
"Hopeful news this week for people living with HIV a couple of drug trials have shown that a monthly long acting injection is as effective as daily dosing of pills and keeping HIV in check. This news comes just days. After researchers reported that a second man has been cured of infection from HIV man known only as the London patient. This comes twelve years after the cure of the world's first person. Now, why why a cure for these two? Well, both men in addition to HIV had cancer, requiring bone marrow transplants and both receive transplants have cells with one very particular. Genetic twist HIV resistance, if the London patient remains off drugs HIV free as he has for eighteen months. Months then that would make to people in the whole world who have been cured of the virus and only after risky procedures meant to save them from advanced cancer. So what does research hold for the other thirty seven million people hoping to live the best lines? They can with the virus. That was once a death sentence here to talk about the future of HIV research are to HIV researchers working on different kinds of treatments to pull a canon is professor of molecular microbiology and immunology at the school of medicine university of southern California in Los Angeles. Welcome back to Canada. Hi, nice to have you start to Catherine bar assistant, professor of medicine and the factious disease division university of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Welcome back to bar. Hello nice to be here. You're you're welcome. Thanks for joining us. Dr cannon as I just said, this patients cure require that you have a bone marrow transplant from a donor who happened to have this rare genetic mutation that makes people resistant HIV infection. He is as I say now the second person to ever achieve remission for more than a year. There may be another patient in Dusseldorf right on the way to the same thing. Yeah. But is this a practical cure for the other thirty seven million people know, but that doesn't mean this is not incredibly exciting and of great value on what research is odd, you know, focused on doing now is saying can we understand why this very specialized and boutique treatment worked for these patients, and can we recapitulate the elements about and find a way to do it. That's you know, safer and applicable to people who don't have an underlying council that would make them undergo by my transplant Dr bar with about other things like vaccines or other work that isn't getting as much attention. There was a case of a potential cure. They got a lot of press coverage earlier this week one publication actually leaked the news earlier than they were supposed to what are what are you excited about? Yeah. That's a great question. I mean, it is hard not to be excited about the second example of a possible cure. But but you're right. Dr cannon is right. This is not directly translatable to a large number of people. So when we think about the thirty seven million people as you mentioned who are infected with HIV right now in the world, we wanna think about things that are a little more simple and a little bit more broadly applicable, and and honestly the HIV cure research field for those approaches is a little bit earlier on. So we're looking at strategies to reduce the size of the virus population. That is infected and remains in the body despite long periods of HIV medicine, and then we're looking at novel immunotherapy mechanisms so way to train the immune system or enhance immune system to identify those cells, and then clear those cells. So you're right. There are things like vaccines there things like antibodies. There's money. Strategies that have been used in other types of cancer approaches that we're looking to apply to the situation of HIV. But I will say that many of these stages are in the very beginning of development and end though, there are positive and really exciting developments. We're not at the stage of being able to even do large stage clinical trials or or implement them. Broadly to all the peoples who could benefit. The Decca cannon. What about gene therapy? We hear so much about that. With is that a useful and applicable line of work here? Absolutely. Yes. Unin deed as we are trying to figure out how to sort of recreate what happened with these transplant patients. Gene therapy is is really playing a starring role. We have two challenges, you know, first of all we have to figure out a way to sort of devote the reservoirs HIV that exists in patients. That's kind of one of the things that happens when somebody gets chemotherapy for that council. We we don't want to have to do that. We don't have to give people chemotherapy. So instead, we're trying to sort of figure out kinda jump Lhamo targeted ways that could specifically remove HIV infected cells. But then that's not going to be enough because we'll never be able to get rid of all the HIV. And so what we want to do then it's used gene therapy to take some of the patient's own cells and make them resistant to HIV to sort of mimic. What happened with these? Stone as off the bone marrow transplants on twenty nine teen. And it sounds crazy to me that I can even say this. But doing gene therapy to recreate the genetic quack that these HIV resistant down this hot is is almost becoming routine. We have amazing tools like like, Chris bustle example, that allow us to go in and target the specific gene that can make people cells resistant to HIV JEAN CLAUDE c- c- all five. And so so that part of the treatment pot that gene therapy can do I kind of feel like, you know, we can do that already. But what we don't know is if that's going to be enough. And instead, what do we combine that with to kind of if you like deep oak people's HIV reservoir, if you can you think do gene therapy that kind of work already are there trials with gene therapy? Yes, indeed does actually trial. What's going on already what people's own bone marrow stem cells are being taken out and with reagents that are a bit like Krista cool zinc finger nuclear crisis. They act like genetic scissors, and they are mutating this, gene, the five G in the patient's own stem cells, which are then kind of return to them. So there are ongoing trials in Los Angeles looking at whether or not that can help patients if not completely kill them. At least get them some benefit in some way of controlling the virus. Katherine let me ask you. What makes HIV such a hard disease research is it just that the virus is a is a complicated problem. Yeah. The virus is a very tricky adversary. You know, it's a small virus. But it's very flexible, and it changes quickly to sort of fight off, whatever strategy we use. So it can quickly develop resistance to HIV medicines. And that's why we have to use multiple medicines at the same time in order to even suppress it, effectively, not not a radical the, you know, the reservoir for care, but just to maintain suppression. But the other thing that makes it really tricky is that it's it's a type of virus called a retrovirus, which means it takes a copy of its DNA or its genetic material and puts it into the host cell and so shortly after infection and just a very short period of time the virus embeds itself permanently and an HIV positive person's body. And so that that window to prevent the seating of HIV is very very narrow. And so basically every person who becomes. Infected with HIV has these permanent copies within their own selves? And that's this major barrier for HIV care that all the research is sort of trying to reduce and hopefully completely clear more and more. We're seeing the overlap between cancer research and HIV as you point out both of these men involved in this cure had cancer and treating the cancer. Also got rid of the virus. Doesn't mean there are still other things from cancer treatments that we could apply HIV. Yeah. I think that's actually a very exciting area of research. We are borrowing a lot of immunotherapy strategies as well. As a lot of the knowledge that cancer. Researchers have gained from exciting new and really groundbreaking treatments and cancer. But one of the problems is, you know, when you think about someone who has a a life threatening cancer that that maybe caused their deaths in three to six months, you're really willing to take a lot of risks in order to try to extend that person's life so side effects are Texas cities for for very exciting therapies are are tolerated in that situation. But when we talk about HIV positive individuals is doing well on HIV medicine, and and really leaving living a very functional life. We're not willing to entertain serious toxicities. And so that that margin or that window of what we're able to tolerate in order to see the effects of these exciting, immunotherapy strategies is much smaller. And so that's one of the limitations of applying many of these exciting immunotherapy strategies that are. Are currently being so successfully employed in cancer limited by the number of candidates who have both cancer and HIV finding them. If you wanted to. Paula. What do you think? Oh, yeah. No, absolutely. I mean, you know, really, if if you if you have a blood cancer, and you failed initial treatment. So that you then become a candidate for transplant. It's almost like, you know, the planets have to be aligned, and you know, you have to have HIV have a blood cancer need a bone marrow transplantation. And then find a donor who is not just what we call it tissue much somebody who can you know, service, your bone marrow donor, but he also has this Rudge mutation the see all five mutation that only about one percent of the population. Do so, you know, it's it's always going to be a very very unusual circumstance. But one of the things that I think quite exciting is, you know, increasingly Counci doctors know about this. There's a large consortium in Europe called icy stem, which is actually it's. Funded by the American Foundation for aids research, which is the charity that Elizabeth Taylor setup, and they are putting together a database of potential bone marrow donors who are carrying the mutation. They got more than twenty thousand people on the books, if you like ready to go, so although it's always going to be a very unusual and only be possible in the smoker to patients, I think what's exciting is that you know, that's going to be made available to people who you know, who qualify for that. And who wants to undergo that
