Choosing and Decorating your Christmas Tree
"Don't know about you. But i used to be caught in the traditional decorations verses pretty designer ish tree quagmire and once had a condo as a single gal and i got a metallic green intentionally. Not real looking. Dr seuss looking skinny tree from my place that was decorated in brightly. Dr seuss ish colors. I was single. And i could do what i wanted fast. Forward a husband child later. And we started accumulating homemade and keepsake type ornaments. Each year we get a metal ornament with our family portrait on it so in eighteen years will literally have a tree called memory lane but these handmade and photo ornaments. Don't necessarily go with the aesthetic vision. I have each year. We have our ornaments stored in bins by color. So each year we can change up the look or mix two colors or whatever we choose without hauling all the bins. Only those we want because they're labeled my answer to this conundrum of looks verses homemade ornaments was to have both so my tiny twelve inch wide by five foot. Tall grinch tree goes upstairs with all the kid ornaments. My childhood ornaments are photo ornaments and the wool animal ornaments. That my son loves downstairs. It's the more aesthetically pleasing and real freshly cut christmas tree. We get the best of both worlds and we managed to do it without a lot of space. Size and proportion is tricky to judge. If you're going to cut down your own tree because large trees look small when sitting out in a field take you're measuring tape and measure the height of your ceiling and then subtract the height of your star for the top and then subtract the height of your tree stand and then allow for at least two inches of breathing room in between the top of the star and the ceiling. Next measure your maximum width allowing for ample space to walk around and take these measurements with you to the field. When buying or cutting the tree better homes and gardens has a great article titled how to choose the best live christmas tree which linked to in the podcast notes. The douglas fir is a long lasting cut tree that holds its needles well with a pyramid shape and bluish green color. It's one of the most popular types of christmas trees available in most regions. They're lush and full with compact branches and a strong evergreen sent for heavy ornaments. They recommend a frazier for. It's also very fragrant with by color. Needles deep green on top and silvery white below. This tree is more cone shaped so it would fit well in a smaller room or tucked in a tight corner. If you have a collection of heavy ornaments or lots of lights in garland. The frazier is a good choice with its sturdy branches. If you're all about the sent choose a grand a for with shiny by color needles. Bright green on top white striped underneath the grand for has needles that are softer to the touch than some other popular furs which gives the tree a fine textured appearance. This species is possibly the most fragrant among all the first boasting a strong spicy sent. The noble for has well spaced branches covered with upwardly curved blue green needles and aren't as quickly as some of the others though it stiff branches can support plenty of ornaments and lights noble. I have a similar pyramid-shaped. Douglas firs but better homes and gardens. Thinks they haven't even more classic. Christmas tree appearance with an almost layered look to the branches. If neat and tidy is your thing a scotch pine might be the one for you with a conical shape piney sent an excellent needle retention the soft green needle. Stay on the branches. Even if the tree gets dry so you won't be left with a lot of clean up if you forget to water it for a day or two. They often have slightly crooked trunks. Which can be a plus. If you like a tree with a little personality of fresh green color and tiered branching structure make eastern white pine contender. It's long thin. Needles result in a more texture is christmas tree and it's also a popular choice for read this the writers especially love a white pine for a minimalist christmas tree. Look they're flexible. Branches aren't the best for supporting heavy ornaments. But you can still deck them out with garland and lights.
Retailers are turning to virtual storefronts this holiday season
"Shopping is big part of the holiday season. We go downtown or to a packed mall browse the store windows smell. The chestnuts roasting in the street. The pandemic has obviously changed all this but some retailers like gap ted baker and ralph. Lauren are trying to deliver that experience to our computers. I just clicked her. A virtual tour of ralph lauren's beverly hills store at the entrance. There's an archway decorated with christmas garlands and a marble fountain with mannequins posed in front of it. I think that that this dude is supposed to be riding a horse or something and there is a saddle next to him. Yeah a saddle. Part of the ranting. I guess. I don't think that it's for sale. And i tried to click on it. But now i ended up in another somewhere else. I don't know where i am. Now let me go back. Oh god okay. I talked about the virtual storefront experience with joe toro a professor at the university of pennsylvania and author of the book. The aisles have is the thing that's weird about it. One is that there's no one else in the store and two. There's no sales people so it's essentially a store after the rest of the world has been destroyed. And when you click on a particular marker next to the goods you see the price of the goods you can actually purchase it. We've seen the companies that make these virtual stores sell themselves during the pandemic as a way to get people in store despite the lockdown Do you think brands are hoping this will drive sales or is it. Just more of a pr move well everything. They're hoping we'll drive sales. I think what it is is an attempt to use the architecture that they have. The stores are brands. The physical architecture says something about store the idea that when you walk into a ralph lauren. Store it's not macy's that's the kind of idea they want to depict find interesting. Is that retailers. Were launching these virtual storefronts even before the pandemic which to me indicates that they think people will want to use them during normal times. Why do you think. Shoppers would go to a virtual store if they could go to one in person because it's easier sometimes because people have gotten used to the idea. The habit of shopping online and because those stores wanna differentiate themselves from amazon. If you can actually walk into ralph lauren. In a way that makes you feel good about what you're doing instead of going on to amazon and just going through a regular kind of standard catalog. Maybe would find more interesting. I mean occurs to me that stores are not always accessible or comfortable for everyone. And don't forget that. If you live in new york los angeles there are stores for just about every brand and so what they're doing is reporting the expensive architecture and branding that they created for these flagship stores in big cities and allowing people all over the country and even the world to go into them. So you've written about. How retailers are remarkably good at tracking us in store figuring out our preferences what we might wanna by using cameras and smartphone apps and gps's how might the data collection process look different in virtual storefront. Well the great thing about that. From the standpoint of the retailer is they can actually follow. Your is particularly if using goggles right. They know what you're looking at. They know where you've gone it has the counterpart of walking through the store. So they can actually see. Have you passed the shoe aisle while maybe if we give you a virtual coupon you'll go back to the shoe while they're that level of lineal activity that they can follow and they can see what you're interested in which is partly possible to do of course on a regular website but in terms of the movement across the store and maybe the the trying on of things and putting them back and all that eventually you'll be able to see in this kind of world That's gonna be useful for Stores to know also where you start when you go to a website you pretty well have search for a particular good and then you put it down or you purchase it when you walk into a store. You may wonder you know. If it's a virtual store the same thing and companies will be really interested in how people wander. That's one of the major issues of creating stores organizing stores figuring out how to get people to buy things. Where do you place your goods based upon how people wonder do you think there's any additional data a retailer might be able to get if you're shopping in its virtual store rather than its in-person store will say say what you look for is one thing if the voice becomes part of it for example if they include a virtual sales people who talk to you the way customers talked to the virtual sales people could become another important piece of data what companies infer from the way you speak and even the literal voice tones that you speak with can tell them things about you. Joe torre wrote the book. The aisles have is

Interview With Roger Corman
"The word legendary is overused but in the case of roger corman. It's well deserved. Roger trained as an engineer at stanford but after four days on the job. He quit to make movies. He began producing and directing low budget. Independent films are getting the underserved teen market. What is films lacked in production value. They made up for imagination. And as roger famously declared he never lost a dime on a picture and he made a lot of them. From nineteen fifty. Five to nineteen seventy-one. He directed over fifty films. Everything from monster. Movies to biker. Pictures to his famous adaptations. The works of edgar allan poe. He focused on producing and film distribution launching the careers of some of the biggest names in hollywood including francis ford coppola jonathan demme joe dante and bringing films by autour like david cronenberg. Ingmar bergman federico fellini to america. Rogers sat down with history of harsh showrunner. Kurt sanga to talk about his remarkable career. You started off directing and producing low budget films in the nineteen fifties How did you deal with the limitations. Faced the early films. I directed i was beginning to director with short schedule and i did what i could. I absorbed films saying. I use certain camera techniques that i've seen before and invented some myself. Now i'm not certain. I really invented them just that i had never seen them in other films. They may not have been as original as i thought. Nine fifty seven directed something like nine films Including tack of the crab monsters personal favourite Fm didn't have a lot of production values. But it was packed. Full of interesting ideas. A what are your memories of that film. Well i remember specifically said didn't have very much money and i remember exactly. The crab monster cost twelve hundred dollars and it was paper my shea but it was very big and it looked pretty good but we were shooting at on the rocks at cabrillo beach and the waves were hitting up against the monster and i could see the waves. Were destroying the back of the monster. So i had to shoot as fast as i possibly could and from only certain angles not to let the audience see that. The vaster was being destroyed. Well we shotted speaking monsters. Tell me about the monster from it. Conquered the world well. The monster from saturn was based upon my studies at the university where i studied physics and i tried within the fantastic world of science fiction to be as logical as possible and i realized a giant planet like saturn would have heavy gravity so therefore a giraffe could not exist but a turtle could because it was close to the ground and would be able to handle the gravity so i had the monster built all about the height of my hand here and thus say was physically correct for the planet saturn. I was having coffee as they were setting up the first shot and beverly garland very hip. Young actress came up to the monster and she looked and she noticed that i was watching her

Amy Coney Barrett sworn in at White House ceremony
"Night Amy Coney Barrett became the 9th United States Supreme Court Justice in one of the most partisan displays of power. We have witnessed in the past few decades Republicans use their political majority to force Barracks confirmation before election day. So far sixty million votes have already been cast in the 2020 election embarrassed nomination process was one of the fastest ever for Supreme Court nominee lasting a little more than a month after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg Barrett answered less than 20% of the questions posed to her during her sneering leaving many Americans unclear about how the new Justice might lean and frustrating Democrats who remember how President Obama scotus nominee Merrick Garland wasn't even granted a hearing the current team was the culmination of nearly four Decades of work on reshaping the court Mitch McConnell starkly said this on Sunday a lot of what we've done over the last four years would be undone. gamer later by the next election won't be able to do much about this. for a long time to come
Senate to confirm Trump's Supreme Court nominee a week ahead of Election Day
"Later today if you Senate majority leader Mitch, McConnell's predictions proved accurate the US Senate will vote to confirm amy coming Barrett to the US Supreme Court Bar will be the judge that the Republican Party has been able to put on the bench during President Donald Trump's term, and while she may not be the controversial of these herself her. Confirmation is the Republicans have breezily disregarded the convention which they invoked for years go to keep a barrack Obama nominee from even having confirmation hearings on joined with more on this by Christian mcnichols news editor and Claude Harrington associate professor of American politics at Montfort University. Claude first of all is this now actually a done deal is they the remotest chance at all Barrett doesn't get put on the bench? I think it's. All bots jail she seems to be there I. IT's. It's quite staggering to see how fast. The process can move when people actually wanted to unlike 'em time round as you mentioned just a moment ago. So yeah, I would say unnecess- some unanticipated and catastrophe she's had. Chris, the Republicans hypocrisy here is mildly staggering MRIs, of course, the same Republican Party that four years ago clutched polls and affected vipers at the very idea of even holding confirmation hearings for Merrick. Garland who Barack Obama wished to put on the court in the last year of his presidency they going to do this about a week out from a presidential election. But this isn't what justifies the trump thing in the as far as the Republican establishment is concerned absolutely I mean I think the issue is if you look at this from a purely political perspective taking out the the hypocrisy argument if you will Mitch McConnell and the Republicans in the Senate have achieved. What they wanted to achieve and they have, they have given people who voted for Donald Trump essentially what they wanted I think you can divide those who voted for Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen obviously into many different camps. But there were there were those who voted for trump himself. But then there were many who simply voted for a Republican with this in mind with the idea in minded, they would be able. Influence. The Supreme Court for decades to come remember as you said at the beginning Obama was denied I'm nominee that meant that there was a vacant spot open right when Donald trump was elected president, which was then filled and that in itself would have been a dramatic swing in the other direction. So we shouldn't forget that it was a very conservative Justice Antonin Scalia who had passed away or shortly before the two thousand sixteen. Election. So we have seen a dramatic shift in the court compared to what would have happened if Hillary Clinton had been elected president and so in that sense. Yes. From a purely political perspective, the Senate Mitch McConnell who is a traditional Republican was You could argue very much power political individual who was willing to stomach donald trump and some of his politics because he knew that this is what he would be able to achieve. At once amy conybeare. At ease confirmed, that will give the Supreme Court, a six three conservative majority. Now, that's not absolutely set in stone Supreme Court justices have been known to have minds of their own from time to time, but is it possible from distance to assess what difference that could make to American politics for as Chris quite rightly points out potentially decades ahead of us. Yes I think that that's absolutely not an overstatement to to to to say how significant this is. You know what they did. There would be an ideological. Conservative majority from this point on and. There's a couple of things I suppose one is. What it might mean in terms of what's coming before the court you know in the short to medium term I mean there are. Big issues coming down the road to do you know things on climate change on immigration and other major. Political stumbling blocks the one that's coming soon as I really am the one that's going to get the most attention for the moment is a vote on the for care act and that is coming before the courtroom, November and it's about rather than the the. Statute in its entirety is to be deemed unconstitutional or can can parts of it be on picked now? Komi Bats. Take on. This is going to be enormously important because if there is a possibility that's M obamacare in its entirety could be undermined and that's that's a fairly enormous moment. I think for the country not least when it's in the the grip ave, a public health crisis. Chris at the top of the show, we did play a quote by senator. McConnell which struck me as slightly all I don't know whether he misspoke or just found himself saying the quiet out loud. But he said a lot of what we've done over the last four years. We'll be undone sooner or later by the next election is that Mitch McConnell assuming or perhaps even hoping that trump gets beaten next Tuesday It wasn't interesting remark wasn't it? It's it's hard to say I think there might be a little bit of that in in his remarks you can read into it I do think more importantly though his comment related to what I was saying earlier I would argue that he is making this case almost a gloating case to say you can undo whenever you win whether it is in November as the polls suggest. Currently or not you can. You can undo much of what we did in the four years in electoral terms in legislative terms I should say, but you cannot undo what we've done on the court that will remain that will remain something that stays for a long period of time. The one thing I just wanted to say on that as well. I think it will be interesting with this conservative majority To really see how aggressively they go after that to to Mitch McConnell's point if you will things like the affordable care act they were passed by Congress if there is a Democratic president with Joe Joe Biden becoming president, they will have an opportunity to pass laws to to to change laws as well. Of course. So the question really will be to what extent this cord goes after laws declaring things. Versus giving Congress an opportunity to sort of legislate when it comes to things like healthcare as well. There were some interesting remarks I just add for Amy Coney Barrett on this in the past, he's talked about the idea of precedent the idea of who legislates when when you overturn precedent and she did have a little bit of a line to say she will own the overturn precedence. If there is still controversy in a certain issue. So if it is something that is divisive and it has not been decided if there is an overwhelming public support for something, she also believes that it's not the courts job to overturn it, and so that I think will be a key thing to watch going forward if we have say a democratic President Democratic majority but a conservative court. Claude if next Tuesday is a big win for the democratic. Party. As Senator Mitch McConnell appears to think it's going to be the not completely without options are there is the possibility as has been floated off expanding the Supreme Court but do you think a democratic administration would be willing to spend political capital doing that? Yes. It's interesting to see how the the the kind of the tightrope that Biden has been walking in his language on this topic and you know any mention of packing the court does. Bays alarm bells, I think in causes some concern people start talking about FDR on his efforts back in the day. I would say, maybe there might be an possibly needs to be a conversation about reforming court gets in its current. Is. Having become such a punishment killed body and it's certainly not what the framers set out to be, and the does probably you know some serious conversations that need to be had I suppose as one other point as well. Maybe just more. And immediately, is that the last male liberal on the court Stephen Prayer is the HVAC too. So. I. Mean He seems in relatively good shape put. It's quite likely that whoever is President the next four years, we'll have the opportunity to put. A new justice on the court. So that's just something to think about in terms of the balance clothes. Harrington Christian. Thank you both for joining
Senate on track to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to Supreme Court despite Democrats efforts to block
"Democrats argued the winner of the presidential election Should choose the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is replacement. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer blasted Republicans for rushing the process to confirm Barrett during an election year even though they wouldn't do the same. Four years ago, when the president Obama nominated Merrick Garland, confirming a lifetime appointment this late into a presidential election season is outrageous. It is even more galling, of course, because nearly every Republican in this chamber led by the majority leader four years ago refused. To even consider the Supreme Court nomination of a Democratic president. If she's confirmed Barrett could be sworn in by the end of the day.

Amy Coney Barrett & The State of SCOTUS
"So the topic I want to go to now is on the question timing the fact that this nomination is coming rather late in the fourth year of a president's term has made it controversial in fact, timing of just. Nominees to nominations to the supreme. Court has been controversial now for four or five years for a variety of reasons. So that's the first question. I would like each of you to tell me your position on on the question. Should the Senate be voting on a nomination to the Supreme Court right now sire you yes or no on that? I. Mean Yes. John All right cy you are yes. On the same question Irwin should the Senate be voting on a Justice of the supreme? Court now yes or no no amy honeybear bear should not be confirmed at this time. All right. Thank you I. Want to go first use for your reasons. Why are you a? Yes on the on the question of the timing of the nomination right now well, on the question of timing I think the Senate has the authority to consent the president is nominated someone. I don't see any reason why the Senate Caq Senate is doing other things it's it's considering thrown a virus relief. Of course, it can legislate until the members leave. and. So nothing nothing prevents the president from nominating someone nothing prevents Senate from acting upon that nomination and I think there three positions John. I think one position is you must vote on the nomination I. think that was Erwin's position for years ago. A second position is you can vote on the nomination, but you shouldn't that might ear ones position today and I the the middle position, which is you can vote on the nomination and you should. Thank your ticket back to you. So what I hear size saying is the Senate has every legal and constitutional right to be doing this now. They, certainly have the legal and constitutional right to do it, but they shouldn't do it. This is stunning hypocrisy by the Republicans for years ago Senator Mitch McConnell said, the American people should have a voice in the selection and the next Supreme Court justice. Therefore, this vacancies should not be filled into we have a new president. Antonin Scalia died in February two, thousand sixteen. President Obama named Mira Garland for that seat in March of two thousand sixteen. There was eight months before the election was to be held in the Republicans wouldn't hold hearings or wouldn't hold about Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on September eighteenth of twenty twenty, and already the Republicans are looking to fill that seat. There is historical precedent. On October twelfth eighteen sixty four chief justice Roger Tawny died the president Abraham Lincoln didn't try to fill the vacancy in the month before the election or nineteen fifty-six Justice Sherman Minton resigned from the court but President Eisenhower didn't try to pick the successor instead an October fifteenth. He made a recess appointment of a Democrat William Brennan. So whoever won the election would pick the successor? Alright let. Let me jump in because I I WANNA give cya chance to respond to some of what you're saying. So so I think we heard from Irwin saying that. eight months. was enough of a lead time and they were talking about the case of Merrick Garland back in two thousand sixteen. But that one month one and a half months is too short and he sites precedent of other examples where presidents had more of that timeframe. So what's your response to that? I think are ones making a slightly different point I think if. They. Can See had risen eight months ago I think are only making the same exact point, which is what's good for the goose is good for the Gander. So it's not really a question of timing. There's plenty of time as Irwin and other people now there there's GonNa be a vote in the Senate. The point is about equity I. Think the point is about precedent in Irwin has some precedents would, of course, you can go back to previous administrations in sight other presidents. John Marshall was appointed days before John Adams left the Presidency Steven Briar was nominated and appointed to the circuit court after Jimmy Carter lost. So there, there are precedents obviously for acting after the election. Let alone before I understand there's some raw feelings about what happened four years ago and I understand that people have flipped Irwin.

Senate Judiciary Committee sends Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court nomination to full Senate as Democrats boycott vote
"And I'm Noelle King. Good morning, the Senate Judiciary Committee has advanced the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Amy Cockney Barrett. Mr Chairman, the votes for 12 years and 10 not present motion is passed. Thank you. All 12 Republican senators voted for her nomination. The committee's 10 Democrats did not show up. They were boycotting the proceedings. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzales has been following this story and the proceedings. Good morning, Claudia. Good morning. No. Well so fairly short today. This morning. What happened? Yes, it all went by very quickly, all said, and done and under 12 minutes. This is a very traumatic Shift from what we saw last week with hours and hours of testimony at least 20 hours of questioning Barrett by the members on the panel, both Republicans and Democrats, But today Democrats boycotted they did not show up. Republican senators on the Judiciary Committee sidestepped that no show to move barrettes nomination forward to the full Senate. Democrats said they were boycotting because they wanted to highlight the damage that bear it would do to healthcare, reproductive and voting rights and the fact that the vote took place amid a presidential election. And this is one battle. Democrats say perhaps the lose, but they're looking to win a bigger war. Graham alluded to that when he talked about the next vote on the Senate floor. Let's take a listen They started this On May For up to May that be a 60 vote requirement in the Senate today, and he's referring to the Senate filibuster there. This is a requirement of 60 votes that was once needed to approve a nomination like barrettes. But the filibuster was eliminated in 2013 as Democrats struggled to move their judges forward when they control the chamber with the tight margin, So that's what Graham is referencing, and he added later that perhaps this will be addressed again in the future. However, now that the Senate is controlled by Republicans with tight margins, they're able to push through barrettes nomination with just 51 votes. It's a preview of the battles to calm that this will go on after barrettes nomination this conversation even as far as she goes to the floor to be considered by the full Senate, and we see if Democrats ultimately changed the dynamics of power in the Senate or the presidency through the upcoming election day. How did Democrat to respond today? They didn't just say nothing right? Yes, there had been rumors for days that Democrats could boycott these hearings. They were facing a lot of pressure from outside groups to even skip out on the hearings last week questioning their it. But they decided not to do that last week. Instead, they did it to Dae. So later yesterday, they confirmed that they would all not show today they're empty seats were filled instead with images of Americans who have used the affordable care act. This is a case that could become it could be considered before the court next month. And so this is one critical issue They've been highlighting all along. They also held a news conference after the vote. This was led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on the steps of the Capitol is take a listen. The nomination of Amy Cockney Barrel. Is the most illegitimate process I have ever witnessed in the Senate, and her potential confirmation will have dire, dire consequences. For the Senate. With his Supreme Court and our entire country for generations to come. So this was the theme they've been driving through this entire process. Barrett will shift the court to a 63 conservative majority, and they say she's a foe to the affordable care act. The landmark abortion rights case, Roe v. Wade, and she could play a role. If there's a dispute in the election. This is activated activated opposition as well. There were protesters outside the capital. Speaking against this nomination, this resulted in about a half a dozen arrests so far today I spoke to Judiciary Committee Democrat Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut yesterday, said the watchword for them is no more business. As usual. He and the other members have been driving home this point that this is a sham process. It's not normal. It's not writing Americans should see it for what it is and probably see more of this in the coming days, because there is so much acrimony over this nomination. Yes, exactly So many reasons. We're in the midst of a pandemic. We're rushing this through in 30 days, one of the fastest, we've seen the fight over health care. And, of course, you know the division between Republicans and Democrats. Really. Exemplified by President Trump pushing this forward and so there's a long history as well of these fights over the Supreme Court in the controversy surrounding these nominations if we go back to 2016, Democrats try to move forward. President Obama's nominee at the time. This is Judge Merrick. Garland and Republicans refused because they said they were so close to an election months away. But here we are now people are early voting and they're pushing this through. So this is set into motion a series of debates to calm and we're even hearing about it from the Democratic nominee Joe Biden this morning. We understand he told 60 minutes that he's going to create A study a commission to bipartisan commission to study whether they should add more seats to the courts a lot more to come here, including next week, right what happens then? So tomorrow, the nomination for Barrett actually will reach the full Senate floor. It's going to be followed by some procedural votes on Friday, as well as on Sunday. In between, we're going to see a lot of debate an argument back and forth. But the rial final moment for this will come Monday when the full Senate will submit their votes for bear to confirm or vote against her nomination to the Supreme Court. NPR congressional reporter Claudio Gonzalez. Thanks, Claudia. Thanks for having me

"Aspect of Garland's career would ever eclipse her early success as Dorothy. She was incapable of escaping the film that essentially ruined her life. Meanwhile Louis Louis Mayor maintained a well respected position in Hollywood and politics with MGM Still Producing Films Today and wizard of Oz director Victor Fleming would-be heralded for his work. As the director of Gone With the wind. A box office smash hit. That made him the most wanted director. In Hollywood mm-hmm if anyone deserved to have a career ruined it was fleming. He was a known Nazi sympathizer who was also vocal. About how how much he hated the British later one of his actors and revere who worked with Fleming on the yearling would recall how flagrant he was in his support of Nazi Germany. Yet for whatever reason he was left to hobnob around Hollywood unchecked enjoying an illustrious career while Judy garland battled addiction and abuse Fleming and mayor enjoyed the spoils of smash hit films and for all the horror stories that leaked from the set of of the film. The most horrendous would stay hidden for fifty years around Christmas in nineteen eighty nine. The wizard of Oz was on on television. And as usual the network airing the movie enjoyed a ratings boost as families across the country gathered round to watch the film. But in the wake of that airing a rumor began to circulate. Someone somewhere head noticed something that had gone unnoticed unnoticed for more than fifty years as Dorothy the tin man and the scarecrow exit the dark forest for the last time they danced past an eerie shadow. Auto that seems to sway in the wind the shadow it appears is that of a dead body a lifeless corpse swinging. I'm from one of the trees. Someone had hung themselves. The widespread rumor is that it was the body of a Munchkin actor who had fallen in love with one of his fellow Munchkins. But when she didn't return his love he fell into a deep depression no longer able to stand working beside aside her day in and day out knowing she would never love him back. He hung himself well. This story is tragic. It doesn't exactly makes sense. The scenes in the dark forest were filmed before the Munchkin actors ever arrived on set so it would have been impossible for the dead body to have been a Munchkin eventually. A more plausible explanation began to circulate. But the story is even more heartbreaking according according to legend one of the MGM producers had a teenage daughter who was longing to break into show business she loved the Oz books and in big her father to cast her as Dorothy in the film but for whatever reason he refused heartbroken at having lost her dream. Role to Judy Garland Orland. She decided to seek the ultimate revenge against her father and hung herself on the set of his magnum opus. That way he could never watch the movie without seeing the body of his dead daughter hanging lifeless from a tree. It was an act of grizzly horrific. Nick revenge this piece of wizard of Oz. Lore has become the single most famous rumor to spread about the film likely likely because it's gruesome and macab and plays to our most morbid curiosities but thankfully according to a set dresser who worked on the film. It's also completely false. The real story is that a set designer rented four hundred exotic birds to be used during filming several of which escaped improved hard to recapture among them was a rogue crane that made its way to the fake trees onset and it's massive shadow can be seen swaying back and forth during the scene in question even instill. The dark shadow seems to loom over the set like can omen and while some were able to shake the omen after the movie wrapped others like Judy Garland would find the dark shadow. Never quite left. Thanks.

"Wake to quickly wrap the project Fleming rightly knew that Dr Arthis Baby Doll Look was all wrong and gave her the iconic pigtails. She's known for today. It was a move that gave garland and the rest of the cast confidence and this man understood the story. He was telling but that did little to dispel rumors around town word on the street. was that the wizard of ause was shaping up to be an unmitigated disaster citing the frequent injuries and almost constant director turnover as cause for concern But no onset disaster would take away from the overwhelming success of the movie. This was largely because Judy Garland was willing to go to any length to ensure the movie's success including sacrificing her own health. She allowed the studios to push her to extremes. It's because she suspected that the wizard of Oz would be her first box office smash to her. Credit Garland was right. Twenty million million Americans saw the wizard of Oz when it was first released in theaters about one in six Americans at the time the escapist movie caught on like like wildfire when the film debuted in nineteen thirty nine towards the end of the Great Depression about twenty percent of the American Workforce Force was unemployed for the first time since the civil war Americans were starving amidst such hopeless dire conditions. It's easy to see how quickly the public would gravitate towards a film that assured them that all they needed to survive was a brain a heart and a little courage years after the film debuted in theaters the wizard of Oz premiered on television in nineteen fifty-six and truly became came a cultural landmark. It also helped bring the movie overseas where international audiences fell in love with Dorothy the brave heroin from Kansas by nineteen fifty six then thirty four year old. Judy Garland was one of the most internationally recognised movie stars on the planet. She would go on to have an illustrious career as an actor and singer but no role would ever eclipse the success and recognition. She found his Dorothy. She poured her entire heart into the filming of the movie knowing she had to deliver absolute perfection or she would never be given another leading leading role again but every day she was picked apart by the adults around her. Who called her fat clumsy even hunchback she Ian Dury endless harassment at the hands of her directors studio execs and some fellow actors? Her hope was that her performance would propel L. Her career forward and finally give her some control over her career but she was only seventeen too young and impressionable to withstand Stan the onslaught of maltreatment and criticism she began to spiral out of control unable to ignore the constant criticism. The threats to stay skinny and young. The abuse she suffered onset would lead her down a dark road that ended thirty two years later when her body finally collapsed in the wake of her death in nineteen sixty nine. The public would learn that she had spent her life addicted addicted to barbiturates and crash diets. A pattern of self sabotaging behavior learned on the set of the wizard of Oz. Those closest to Garland Oakland have often said that she gave everything to filming the movie and eventually it took her life. We'll learn more about Garland's tragic story in a moment now back to the story by the time filming rapped on the wizard of Oz in nineteen thirty nine. Almost every actor onset had been harmed in some way but as Judy garland story has become become more public. It's clear that nobody had a harder time during filming than the seventeen year old star. It's a well known fact. That Judy Garland suffered suffered physical and mental abuse onset from Studio execs and the Director Victor Fleming even from several of the actors playing Munchkins some some of the crew who worked on set recalled that many of the actors who played. The munchkins rallied together to bully Garland. They made a game out of sticking their hands a skirt and tried to embarrass her onset. Bear in mind. She was only seventeen at the time. And the Munchkins were actors in their forties forties. In fact the Munchkins were the only group of actors to come away from the process relatively unscathed. They gleaned a great deal of enjoyment enjoyment out of harassing garland whenever they got the chance. But they've also been accused of bringing mass amounts of drugs to set and hiring sex workers workers to pass the time in their trailers. But possibly the biggest source of Judy's anxiety was the many spies that had been hired by studio executives -secutive lurking around said watching Garland's every move it might seem insane but studio executives at MGM considered Garland to be one of the heavier actresses the studio had on contract and made it a priority for her to lose weight and she was naturally thin and but not skinny and many of the executives believe that had to do with her eating habits instead of biology so they paid off members of the cast in crew to spy on her. She wasn't able to trust anyone onset as her. Every moment was being watched in order to look like a preteen. Gene Garland was asked to lose twelve pounds before filming then during filming producer. Louis B Mayer one of the Co Founders of Metro-goldwyn-mayer Goldwyn-mayer Aka. MGM ordered that she go on a crash diet. This left her emaciated. For most of the production she was is only allowed to drink. Chicken Broth onset mayor was convinced that Judy was too fat to play the role of Dorothy throughout her teenage years. Mayor was notoriously hard on judy. Bullying her about her weight often. Calling her his little hunchback. It was utterly cruel will if and when she dared to eat solid food she would be hauled into his office and yelled at but it wasn't what was said. During these meetings things they gave the most immediate cause for concern in one chilling encounter garland recalls being groped by mayor in his office when she was only sixteen she later said she didn't think she could say no to the powerful executive. It might seem odd that a man who was attracted to Garland enough to grope her would also decide that she fell short of his beauty standards but in actuality a plethora of research shows is this. Duality isn't uncommon author. Dr David snark suggest that people who seek to control other people's bodies in this way typically we do so because they feel inadequate or cannot control themselves in all likelihood he was seeking to control Garland as a way of making himself feel more powerful his groping. Her and obsession with her weight probably had very little to do with whether or not he actually thought she ms fat and yet despite all this there isn't endearing picture of the two of them. Dancing at a party garland in a frilly dress mayor beaming at her like a proud father. Their relationship was undoubtedly abusive albeit nuanced. It's unlikely.

"It's also available right now on the criteria channels so if anyone subscribes to that very easy to give it a look again they play a pair of struggling vaudeville performers who pair up in hopes of breaking through to big city theaters and then just when things start clicking for them professionally and at least on her part Romantically World War One intervenes Mike Garland moment is coming from a scene that she doesn't share with Kelly though actually here she's in her dressing room with George Murphy Perfect. He's playing another performer and she's lamenting her sudden realization that she is in love with Kelly's Harry Palmer and that he doesn't feel the same way about out her. It's way down deep inside of me. He's wrong and I love him. He's right and I love him. It's no good gee. What do you do when you love somebody so a much? They don't even know your round. He's wrong and I love him. He's right and I love him. It's no good such great lines ends and Garland is in close up here some soft background music a little bit but otherwise nothing between her and the camera no dance routine no attention attracting costumes nothing else juster face with that dialogue and I think she turns it into one of the great mini monologues on unrequited love so for me and my gal probably. I said I liked it. I think a lot more than you did. Michael probably my favorite of the homework movies that I did catch up on. I'd seen a handful before but of the ones is this last batch. I watched. I really really fell for this one for me and my gal so yet and that's the kind of scene you tend to overlook when you're looking looking at a musical because it's because it's basically just plot expediency in you know but she turns it into something else that you see in that scene how well she does with that monologue what she could do in the clock three years later which is a great. We don't want my favorite girl on performances and a nonmusical another Manelli film that that's that absolutely holy you can you can see how good she was already by nineteen forty two and again. She's you know she's twenty years older. Let's amazing amazing instincts. Well well if you heard. Michael talked about the trolley scene in meet me in St. Louis and you thought I really need to watch that or maybe re watch it. Just go back a little bit before that and that film for my why number two it's the over the banister sequence which Josh you knew that I was going to pick this one. It was my favorite Manelli moments rate from our marathon and we appropriately called those awards the Garland so my Garland for best moment from all the films wash marathon was this very scene where she's with that love interest the boy next door John True and what I love about it. She has orchestrated this entire roofs basically the scene within her house to try to entice him and she is going through because there was a party that I think maybe he didn't show up to but now he's shown up up after the fact and she's really shutting down the House for the night and so what we see is Minelli making Garland and her character esther the director of the scene where she's she's adjusting the lights throughout the house and goes up the stairs and turns them out but doesn't turn them out all the way gives them just that perfect glow so that she appears perfect act in them and she turns after adjusting the last one she's at the top of the stairs he's down to the bottom looking up at her and she turns to just stand against the bannister and Minnelli pushes in as she comes forward. It's timed perfectly of course to get her face just emerging from darkness into into the glow of that light that perfect light that he can see her in and Garland just gives this perfect head tilt just a slight tilt of the head and a smile. Gal and I do think these gestures are so crucial to Garland like one of my other choices that wink that I loved from Easter Parade these little maybe conditions are nuances as we said before that she adds to these scenes is just her in that moment that close up completely owning the frame and allowing allowing allowing him to look up at her and it's another scene like my choice from Easter parade where she's really in control of the man when you watch us completely pulling the strings brings in the scene bewitching him or maybe I should say beguiling him. God will be low with south. He watches the pay her ally Burns Damn in a whole which is what makes the end of the scene so funny too. There's this great kind of comic bit from Garland the punctuation on it where despite how beguiling dialing she's been and seems to have him just eating out of her hand. John Only reacts at the very end by shaking her hand excessively acidly and tells her how swell of a night it was. This has been a grading really it has. I'll never forget it as and you may not and you know something else. You've got a strong grip for girl. Garland's defeated face and that HARAV HARAV she gives as she goes up the stairs is just goals like more could a woman do in that scene but how he didn't just completely fall fall for her and give into anything she ever asked for the rest of his life after seeing her at the top of those stairs I don't I don't know in Garland we were both had great pension and I think for for for finding the the unexpected comic you know button at the end of a of a of a pretty sincere dramatic romantic seen that that that's that's why that movie has the flavor I love it so that brings us to our number one judy garland moment and as it turns out we all are sharing brain on this one as Evelyn so our listener from New York said this is the one you don't have it on the list. Your film spotting card will be revoked. We can't have our hosts having their films spotting cards revoked. She's dead on it is Michael D want to do the honors sure of course it's you know it's my show. Yes no wait. I'm sorry this show It's this has never happened never have been on. I've been privileged enough to be on and we've never actually agreed on a number one. I don't think now so be coup who finally came around here. I don't know I had I never had. I never had another one. It's the man that got away from Stars Board. it is stars and lost the windows grow cold suddenly suddenly you're old and all become this man that God a you can talk about a lot of a lot of things about this number. It's it's it's also when you look at what's on Youtube. It is such a film Tom Class UNTO itself. When you look at the alternate takes the two completely separate versions of this great Harold Arlen Ira Gershwin Song. It's simply setting up the the romance to come so that so that esther singing with the band you know at long after closing at this dive bar. Are you know you can just they were practising a number and James Mason walks in unseen and just manages to catch the moment where he realizes this is this is stardom you know invoice and a performer and everything everything about the number is so beautiful the the way it ended up. It's got this really dark rich sort of somewhat film new Ari kind of air to it although it's a cinemascope color picture but when you look at the two versions on Youtube of the same song done with completely different set direction bright light pastel colors you know and it's it's it's just everything is wrong except what Garland is worth and and you know a lesser studio a Lesser Director George Kuker occur happened to be the the right director lesser director would have said look. She's so good we're fine. I don't care if the set's not quite right in the mood a little off well they kept working being on she re re recorded it three times for film and I think saying dozens of times different different versions and they finally got it and I don't know the the meat of the song is about a three and a half minute. Take on interrupting where you have this really you know I can only give up my highest additive Manelli Nelly level of visual Ms Unsan where you have the the band instruments to sort of jutting into the frame at different things and there there are situated in a completely Lina unrealistic way no band of course you know circles around their performance sort of this sort of blobby not quite circle but got it on camera. It's magic. It's perfectly composed. Here's the thing the emotional complexity we talked about earlier with Garland. We have a song that is in a you know. The script writer just said we don't we need. We need a dive bar number. That's all we need we need. We need her to just Kinda sing. Some sort of lament romantic element and the lyrics are very potentially masochistic you know in that sort of way the Garland I think frankly develop that kind of aura about the sort of kind of a romantic masochism and you know sort of tragic romantic in the later in her later could've train wreck years but the way she sorta tosses this number she's smiling through most of it yeah and and then she kinda hits you with this vocal powerhouse every every every stanza it's perfect would ridden every pigging. We'll be. You're getting 235. Emotional cords being played played at once by this one wonderful contralto and it's not just the voice. It's it's a it's a hell of an actress behind. I duNNO I. It's one of these things I'm Josh Allen where you look to try to bump out your own number one like is there anything better. Is there anything but a lot of stuff. I love but this really this is kind of tighten. The only thing yeah I can see against it is that it comes to early in the film and the film peaks right there while very that's fair yeah very troubled production and so I definitely agree. It's the highlight. It was my number one as soon as we decided we were going to do this list and I still had four or five movies. I wanted and sure enough. It stayed there. When I wrote about stars born I described as staggeringly sultry a moment of a singer meaning Garland's character coming fully into her own and when you describe her voice here it Michael it is that force that that she brings to bear on the material no matter what the words are really it almost doesn't matter the force that she has. I also got a great a comment on my Larsen on film facebook page about this moment from Glenn goodfellow Glenn is he's a friend of my sisters who I know fairly well but not well enough to get invited to the one man Dan Cabaret show he wrote and starred in recently. I mean come on line where where was my invite but here's how he described the man that got away judy at her maximum judy nece. It's shot all in one take. This number is so epic that it literally renamed the Genre of torch songs man that got away songs. It's also such a perfect character for her to play. It's impossible well. Listen to this song and not fully understand the depth of her personal loss in love. You feel it lastly the brass in this recording kill it stellar all around uh so yeah. Glenn's right Michael's right Evelyn's right Adams right. We're we're all right yeah. It's gotta be it's incredible and to put it in context for the people who only know or are more familiar with the recent stars born born starring Lady Gaga Bradley Cooper. Am I right Michael. It's been awhile since I've seen a star is born. Remember studying it fairly closely for a film class. I taught there was about out movies about movies and we compared this to the thirty-seven star is born but this scene is the equivalent of the Le Vian rose seen essentially isn't it where the Yup the other performer the older man James Mason here into this dive. Bar sees her perform which is important. It's another watcher it is and I was going to say hey in this goes back to a little bit the discussion about Jennifer Lopez in Hustler's in the scene where she gets her big introduction big performance on stage and the constant cutting back to you the person watching James Mason. We don't see him in the scene. We see him walk in there but we never have to see him. React to her to understand how incredible it is. She's professor licensed camera focuses on so grateful for the fact that there's not a lot of conventional cut away shots to certainly correctly and it is a tour to force vocally it. It's not it doesn't seem extremely ostentatious or showy and yet when you really study it. You recognize just how much much rain she is showing in that song and I'll end with a quote from our friend. Data Stevens hasn't been on the show in a long time. We need to get Dana back. She of of course from slate said on twitter..

"Any films. Spotting Cards Evelyn is on the right page but she says the reason I'm writing is actually to show a little love love to a lesser known. Judy film her lasted. MGM Summer Stock in no it's not happy Josh which is rightfully iconic but for the scene where she sings friendly star assest forever shining in this seems to be now. Let me preface by I sang. The song is back great to be blunt. It can even be called a little boring. It's just judy and close up singing your heart out as she always does but this is the thing it's not about the song it's all about her delivery. I think at this point in her life she was not in the best place and all of this shows through in her performance. She elevates the song making it feel bizarrely raw. You can't turn away and just as she is literally sing about her heart's desire the camera suddenly hands ends away from her in dips down to Gene Kelly wistfully listening to her saying when I first saw that something in my heart just dropped. How did that just happen? It was such an unexpected an intimate turned an unusual for the typical. Mgm Fair. It's simply took my breath away oddly enough. I would even say that moment feels oddly modern. It's simply perfect. She closes by saying also so maybe it's a bit of a cheat. I know gene and Judy aren't exactly Fred and ginger but I have found each of they're unexpectedly emotional and they're one of my favorite screen pairings and with the backstory of Summer Stock Judy was about to be fired from MGM gene to this movie as a favor to her. It just deepens the love the plays out onscreen screw Yeah Evans. She is exactly right here there. There are better songs performed in this movie including get happy of course also I think not too long before this you wonderful you which I love and that's the other moment I was considering saying that song but also their dialogue just about show business but it's more of a Kelly moment I think than a garland one but the reason friendly star stood out to me so much on first glance was because I'd watch Easter. Pray just the day before I watched summer stock and I really loved the song better luck next time the number one. She's singing in the bar that she was discovered in the bartenders. The only person there and it's another one that's mostly just a close up of medium close up on Garland for pretty much the whole all songs and she's just baring her soul and it's like Charles Walter's the director new. We have to give Garland a number where she just finally gets to truly express herself everything. She's feeling and what we've seen her fighting the whole movie is just going to be that soul baring number and friendly star. Is that seen in summer. Stock it my way lead me to my love. Just want white him. Hey who there you F- owns right. It's absolutely the delivery. It's elegant again. It's not perfect as you'd expect but she's so emotionally invested in it that you realize no matter what it is guards just never go back to work conviction. She's just never going through the motions of a number definitely isn't here and walters does shoot it really nicely to the camera at one point. We see that it's on a crane because then just moves up just above above her and it's looking down on her so she always seems to be singing up to the sky like she is longing for something. That's just out of reach but the clincher is that moment. It's the moment where before the email came in yesterday. I wrote to Sam and said this is it. This is the moment from summer stock that you have to adore. It's when the camera pans down down and to the left of where she's standing to reveal the gene Kelly is occupying the same space that she's singing and he's sitting in a chair listening and he's he's in love with her. She's clearly in love with him. She's here proclaimed it and he heard all of it or at least most of it does feel modern like Evelyn said and it is shocking in the moment because we're so used to these moments in musicals where character sings their heart out to nobody. That's the whole point they're proclaiming to the world because because they can't say it they don't have the courage to say to the person they're in love with but when the object of the song hears it and is feeling it along with them experiencing it along with them. It took my breath away to use three exclamation points. I might use for that moment so that that moment and that song friendly stars my favorite from summer stock well and Kelly. I watching some of these films with Garland. He has to be one of the all-time great watchers of coastal. Yes he is such a valuable audience surrogate get because he's so delighted. He's so enthused about their talent that you can't help but join in the appreciation I mean he could. He could probably sell you on a far lesser talent but in these movies with caroline he doesn't he doesn't have to he's got the Ranulph deal there to be mad but he's such a good watcher. They're both you know they're just wonderfully. Mash and you can see it right away in for me and my gal back in nineteen forty two. Y- they have they both have a hammy streak but it's the best kind it's the best kind kind of ham bone instinct where it's about pleasing the audience but also also what you see. is you see real actors. Developing almost against their will inside assigned these these show these show folk you know these people will have to deliver them the number and really just really hit the mark and get the dance right and just in in all in and just stay on at you and all of it that was frankly a lot easier for garlands and Kelly you know but man I mean. It's just just what what you see with. Kelly is kind of a he is such a physical exhibitions because it was such a such an athlete as a dancer and Garland is really an emotional Alexa business. She's also not yet by nineteen fifty. It was you'd get intimations of what was what was going to happen to her. I think is a performer when when things got really rough after she got like oh by MGM but but she she's maybe emotional exhibition is really the right phrase phrase. It's really just more. She just has an unlimited sort of emotional supply to bring the almost any song anymore than and suddenly make you care care that you never thought more than you ever thought you care. Arab you know the movie summer stock and the and the love story inside. Yeah I love your point to Josh about Kelly because I did spend a good chunk of the film just watching Kelly Watch sure garland and I think that was in contrast to to Easter parade the day before and having to look at Fred Astaire God bless him with that goofy look on his face the whole movie in comparison to Kelly. I just enjoy looking at Kelly so much more at something. I think I have to get over with stared Michael. You bring up whatever and talked about a to kind of Garland's troubles and being dumped by MGM that baggage this she carried with her that I didn't know about until after I saw this film and read about some of the stuff and they had to go back and shoot get happy in the weight loss and whatnot but it is ironic watching it with that knowledge when you think about the plotline of her premadonna sister gloried trade heaven right where it's like okay. That's probably what working with Garland was like the nightmare for most directors and here. She's playing kind of the voice of reason and being a very rational for farmer that we see as the sister Jane we move on from summer stock to our number two choices for Judy Garland and moments Michael had oh my God I love so much and it's the it's the second most obvious thing you could pick besides besides something from wizard is but the trolley song from Saint Louis Take the man I had seen that front the back in a long time and I just watched it time after time the other day and just sort of. I just fell all the way in you know. I was just kind of you know I. It's the kind of talent and magic that that that for me is I'm not a very easy cryer you know in the movies and I always I tend to only music is using my first way in to that kind of emotional reaction and and also it's when something goes right for a character that I seem to be particularly touched and all that is happening in the space of this little one act play which is just a song about people on a trolley and Judy Garland is looking kind of furtively for the boy next door that she's sweet on is is he. GonNa make the train is you're. GonNa come on the on the outing with US nineteen o four Saint Louis. It's all all very kind of this sort of intimation of long long vanished sir my high starch caller and my high topped shoes and my hair piled high upon my head. I went to Bouza Jolly. We all are on the stand in his life. Brown Derby Bright Green Tie. He was quite handsome. Yeah and Garwin does to take you from the beginning the middle and the end about you know this girl talking about while she feels about this guy and then he's as you know then he makes the train and then everything changes for her and it's like this amazing change process where it just becomes this really kind of like buoyant exuberant thing and and then a great. There's a great kind of like emotional turn at the end where they meet and it's a very kind of funny little ending but if you haven't seen in a while but it's again it's really only acted and I don't know I'm I'm just in the bag for this number so bad and it's it's so many people's favorite song from St Louis a lot of people's favorite girl L. A. Number. I was glad that I hadn't seen it for years. You know sometimes you just need to go away. You know and I'm not in general not one to kind of test. My favorite's ability to astonish me you know I like to kind of take time off from things I really love and you know that that movie as much as I I love me means Saint Louis. I liked the elect just park it for a year or two. I hadn't seen that whole number in a long time but man oh man that could've been my number one. It ends up being my number two yeah. Well made my meet me in St. Louis pick so I'm not going to return to that here at number two but I am going to return to move you already mentioned Michael in my Gal. Yes I have that at number two and it's a bit of dialogue. Actually I'm going to step away from the singing and the dancing as I mentioned I wanted to pay attention to which she obviously the employees in her singing and dancing as well but the dramatic chops here and I think one of Garland's best bits of pure acting does come in this nineteen forty two film as You said Michael Another Gene Kelly pairing his screen debut..

"What kind of show you guys putting on here. Today without interesting aren't going to do this thing going to have a conversation oh sation from Chicago. This is film spotty. I'm Josh Larsen and I'm Adam competitor. ooh ooh We've made it over the rainbow. Josh where there are Judy Garland movies that aren't the wizard of Oz so many judy garland movies that aren't the wizard of Oz with the Garland bio-pic Judy opening soon in theaters. We're devoting this week. Show Oh to our top five judy garland moments joining us is our resident wizard. The Chicago Tribune's Michael Phillips Slow also spent a couple of minutes on the new Hustler starring Jennifer Lopez. Is it occurs me. Josh the wizard of Oz was a fraud would exactly saying about Michael. You won't hear this part all that and more ahead unfilled spotty welcome to film spotting Josh. We both took a crash course judy. Garland movies of the last few weeks and today is the final. Are you ready. I think I'm ready yeah I haven't I haven't seen everything. I don't even know if Michael Phillips is seen everything she's major so yeah. I feel prepared. They're still blind spots but this should be I think appropriate to our styles of preparing preparing for a show you methodically doled out the movies took them in over a few weeks and I crammed just didn't college. I procrastinated and I had to hit everything thing at the last minute to be fair. It helps when we actually commit to something for weeks. Had A title which is very rare for the show is rare well. Let's find out if Michael Phillips has is in fact seen every Judy garland movie we welcome in the man who will be handling proctoring duties for our garland examined is Michael Phillips from the Tribune. How are you good to see you goes good to see you. It's been a while I mean it's been a long time. I know it'd be on. I know we do this. More regular like Obama's. First Tournament feels like a slight exaggerate so how many how many do you think you've seen countered them up the garlic first of all. I had a wrong. I thought it was beverly girl. I'm on my three sons so I prepared all wrong. That's next show my next issue. That'll be a download killer. Yes but you know I'd say if you look at all the titles including the the obscure secure ones before she was advised. I've seen two-thirds maybe enough to feel pretty smug about my knowledge base compared to you guys okay okay well. That's all that really matters but let me ask you. Is there one at the tip of your tongue. That is a blind spot. You're embarrassed about. Is there a garland film. You've always meant to see that you haven't y actually I joked. I joked with the email to you guys earlier today about about pigskin parade or actually it was on twitter yes yes. I've never seen pigskin parade now. How you were just needling I was kneeling. I haven't seen pigskin parade. so you know if we can do a whole show on that next week at appreciate it could get to it but no that's of the biggies you know there's a few others in the early forties that I haven't seen him never seen presenting Lily Mars a lot of other things that would just sort of make you look click nipper the dog just staring. You know like what presenting. Lily were so these obscure titles to to to share explore someday later later in the show. We'll talk a little bit about hustlers. The new dramas set in the world of UPSCALE GENTLEMEN'S CLUBS IT Stars J. Lo and Constance Wu Michael and I both had a chance to see that that movie we open to big box office numbers last weekend. We've also got pull results to our question about which acclaimed movie director needs to make a movie set in space a lot of great feedback from that one including one Josh like last week. I might just be setting aside in my back pocket. Just bring on you upon. I'm going to have to leave the studio. We'll see but first I judy garland. The garland biopic Judy starring Renee Zellweger opens in limited release including here in Chicago next weekend the reviews so far pretty pretty much what you'd expect from the genre that Josh knows as his most detested movie genre the biotechs a little strong but not my favorite Los Zellwegger herself and getting a lot of praise now Michael. You have made a little bit of the festival around here lately. Did you see no no tomorrow to screening tomorrow. Does the does the listener goodwill no no. It doesn't know that you're going to see gonNA see a trend. We will have to have you back on to hear your thoughts. I could go on singing. I'll I'll go on singing. That's what I'll of course we may or may not get to a full review of Judy here on the show but we did want us the movie as an opportunity to spend some time time on Garland herself who until recently was kind of a blind spot for both of us Josh with the exception of the wizard of Oz of course it really was the Manelli marathon where we got to dive into her work. Is it fair to say that maybe the wizard of Oz isn't the best introduction one could have to Judy garland because Saad as a kid and many times sense and I don't know. Oh that a place to her strengths now that I've seen obviously over the rainbow is a central piece of focus and made her you know center to another level level of notoriety and fame but the character I don't think is sort of a passive character could be a little whiny and I held off on Garland for a while thinking meanwhile that's Judy Garland and then I think it was producers. Sam's pushing of Easter parade a couple of years ago. That was my first non wizard Judy Garland film the One with Fred Astaire and I was just completely shocked. At what a great president. She wasn't that so very different and then you're right. It was the Manelli marathon that really gave me a good sense of what she could do as well as catching up with nineteen fifty four is a star is born when the remake came out so yeah than really immersing myself men for this list. I in her stuff and surprise surprise Adam She's really something yeah. Check out the big brain on Josh. He's done all his homework. Shoot down the conclusion Asian. Is that needs to know about you the wizard of Oz I was. I'm a crammer like Adam. I'm doing the most I could watch the catch up on stuff. I hadn't seen in years years and years and stuff. I I knew I liked but hadn't seen in a long long time and just the the real pleasure of watching shing concentrated way of you know a little a little bit here and there for a couple of days of somebody who is just such an astounding triple threat who did did the top of the top of the heap and I mean I mean she. It's it's there's a handful of other. Mgm Stars Gene Kelly Fred mystere and then you know one or two others but it's it's Kelly astaire in Garland and then there's everybody else and that and that's when you think about what that actually means and when you talk about the work they did together with the garlanded with Kellyanne garlanded with a stereo. It's just you know. I don't have the same love for Easter parade that you do Josh but you know the talent level is just kind of astonishing though and it's just sort of a I don't know I don't I can't even be cynical about how what what a what a strong response. I had just kind of like just sort of like soaking up the talent because it's not somebody I grew up with loving from age eight on on you know I mean I mean I. I wasn't really a wizard of Oz annual viewer at that age you know because if the marksmen does Ron I was mark of course they were the Marx brothers. Those were not in the was it of is you know I would've actually loved to see him as ten minutes but the radar now jokes aside Josh I do think it's fair to say and this May bear out as we get into our picks that we've discovered there are depths to judy. Garland is a performer that probably aren't fully on display away in the wizard of Oz. So why don't we go ahead and jump into those picks we are going to devote this show to our top five. Judy garland moments and we're going to start it off with an an expert voicemail a guest opinion here from a previous contributor to the show does Ray Garcia Michael. You put us in touch with desert initially. She Played Madeleine Colin in Damian Chazelle debut film Guide Madeline on a park bench. She's currently an associate professor of Latin American Latino and Caribbean studies at Dartmouth and if you're a longtime listener the show you'll recall that she joined us for our top five musical numbers back in two thousand sixteen that was a tie in with our review of Damian Chazelle la La land and she's got a great pick for her favorite Judy Garland. Hi this is Deborah Garcia leaving a message for the Judy Garland show show if I had to choose my favorites judy moments which is indeed a tough task it would have to be rather obvious choice. I'm afraid of the have yourself Merry Little Christmas Song in Navy in Saint Louis. Your saw aw little let your heart the next year. Oh it's it's really an anomaly in musicals of that era in the sense that it is a song that is quite dark. It's a moment that's quite dark. even rather kind of foreboding it's Judy of course in her character esther trying to console her younger sister sure as they prepare to leave St Louis and moved to New York. The lyrics of course are storied lyrics. Now we know that there were at least two different versions of lyrics. The first is one being much darker than the first and it's it's something that quite rare for Hollywood musicals of the period to delve into such dark seems uh-huh change and family separation and perhaps separation is eternal and even though she's trying to comfort her little sister to D- it's clear that esther has her own doubts about what is about to happen and we hear that I think in in Judy Garland's voice voice up here. She's a masterful singer so we hear both the kind of conviction and hopefulness times that things will work out all right and then at other moments I think including the very very end of the song is she seeing those last final words we hear that there is some doubt there on her part some day soon you who beat him and and also just say that that for me you know that song has always been a kind of touch tone in my life something that has helped me kind of mark the various listen turns of my journey's first away from home three thousand miles away to college again leaving a college that I came to love and considering home and embarking on a new career and then to of course marriage and and having a kid and every year I revisit is it that film and that song and it helps me to kind of chart where I've been but also to help me brace myself for the future. Thanks well. Thank you very much for that. I'm going to kick off our list here because this was also my number five have yourself merry little Christmas. I think my favorite Christmas music especially if I'm thinking of the secular holiday variety is the music that has this hint of melancholy this this hint of nostalgia to at Bittersweet Nostalgia Asia I think is my favorite kind of holiday.
"garland" Discussed on The Dark Side Of
"Garland's tragic story in a moment now back to the story by the time filming wrapped on the wizard of Oz in nineteen thirty nine almost every actor onset had been harmed in some way but as Judy garland story has become more public. It's clear that nobody had a harder time time. During filming than the seventeen year old star it's a well known fact that Judy Garland suffered physical and mental abuse onset from Studio execs and the Director Victor Fleming even from several of the actors playing Munchkins chickens some of the crew who worked on set recalled that many of the actors who played the Munchkins rallied together to bully Garland they made a game at of sticking their hands of her skirt and tried to embarrass her onset bear in mind she was only seventeen at the time and the Munchkins were actors in their forties. In fact the Munchkins were the only group of actors to come away from the process relatively unscathed they gleaned and a great deal of enjoyment out of harassing garland whenever they got the chance but they've also been accused of bringing mass amounts of drugs to set and hiring sex workers to pass the time in their trailers but possibly the biggest source of Judas anxiety was the many spies that had been hired by studio executives lurking around set watching Garland's every move it might seem insane but studio execs exit m._G._M.. Considered Garland to be one of the heavier actresses the studio had on contract and made it a priority for her to lose weight as she was naturally thin but not skinny and many of the executives believe that had to do with her eating habits instead of biology so they paid off members of the cast and crew to spy on her. She wasn't able to trust anyone onset as her every moment was being watched in order to to look like a preteen Garland was asked to lose twelve pounds before filming then during filming producer Louis B. Mayer one of the Co Founders of metro-goldwyn-mayer Aka M._G._M.. Ordered that she go on a crash diet. This left her emaciated for most of production. She was only allowed to drink chicken. Broth onset. Mayor was convinced that Judy was too fat to play the role of Dorothy throughout her teenage years. Mayor was notoriously hard on judy bullying her about her weight. Often calling her his little hunchback it was utterly cruel if and when she dared.

"Hey history lovers. I'm Mike Rosen walled with retro pod. A show about the past rediscovered. Twenty years ago, while working on a biography of a cinema icon writer, Gerald Clarke stumbled on a previously unknown in unfinished memoir written by his subject in a brief sixty eight pages, the actress detailed new unreported revelations about her life in the limelight. Those included numerous acts of sexual harassment at the studios of Metro Goldwyn Mayer and GM. The star wrote that she was I sexually harassed while. Starring in her first big role. That you're DARA 'they and the wizard of Oz. I dreamed and hoped for a test like this. But I never really thought I'd be the lucky the author in victim was Judy Garland. In recent years, the deluge of sexual harassment allegations against some of the biggest names in Hollywood has destroyed careers and angered the general public. One of Hollywood's biggest powerbrokers is out of a job Harvey Weinstein fire from his own company on Sunday as allegations of sexual abuse pile up around him following an expose in the New York Times when acusations against Harvey Weinstein surfaced in two thousand seventeen industry insiders were shocked, but not surprised noting that such predatory behavior has been going on in show biz for is long as there have been bright lights like in the nineteen thirties when garland said she was approached for sex numerous times by MGM, founder Louis b Mayer and other powerful studio executives don't. Think they all didn't try the actress wrote? It is by graffiti, get happy the life of Judy Garland Clark wrote that during the filming of the wizard of Oz. Mayor would place his hand on Garland's left breast as he complimented her on singing from the heart. She was only sixteen years old at the time. Having sex with the female help was regarded as a perk of power Clark wrote and few women escaped the demands of mayor and his underlings that after several years of the abuse garland, finally put a stop to it as an adult, Mr Mayor. She said don't you ever ever do that? Again. I just will not stand for it. In response to the rejection garland wrote that mayor started to cry and told her how can you say that to me to me who loves you? If this wasn't bad enough garland suffered through even worse harassment from an unnamed MGM executive he'd summoned garland to his office and demand sex when garland refused she wrote that he began to scream I'll ruin you a break, you if it's the last thing, I do garland was only one of many celebrities at the time who described such abuse Shirley temple and Marilyn Monroe wrote about it in their own memoirs as well. In addition to being sexually harassed people. Call her ugly and overweight biographers of the air have described how garland was given drugs by MGM executives to help her lose weight and stay awake. Perhaps all of that abuse was too much to bear garland became an addict and died of an accidental overdose. When she was forty seven. Garland celebrity and tragic death became emblematic of the cruelty in the film industry. It's a story that never went away resurfacing periodically in unsettling ways. Like in two thousand nine when Clark's biography of garland was optioned for a movie big stars reportedly signed onto the project, but the movie never made it to production. And now it probably never will. The film's producer was Harvey Weinstein. I'm Mike Rosen walled. Thanks for listening for more forgotten stories from history.

"We're here the awards of the garlands i actually wanted to go to garland that's to say that i really do think about ethel waters as a lead and really considered her and i also considered lana turner who is fantastic in the bad and the beautiful but if i'm being honest right this was just for me this was actually the most challenging of the awards to pick i just didn't feel like there was a clear front runner at least from my end of things certainly i didn't think among the man writes nothing really stood out to me frank sinatra was just too little too you know and and kirk douglas i really liked in bad and the beautiful didn't love him as much in lust for life but didn't think that even that was his best performance so i thought through those three women and yeah i landed on judy garland and i think that's mostly just because for me it was really unexpected i think you both talked about this as well i'd never seen her outside of advise where she's fairly young a little spunky stranger in a strange land and it doesn't do much beyond that but here we get she doesn't shed that personality entirely but she adds to it and we get these different dimensions that we've never seen before you guys talked about the sultry moment at the top of the staircase and this word beguiling she herself is beguiling in that moment but also that kind of deeply wistful moment when she's singing have yourself merry little christmas which just exudes kind of maturity that i'd never seen kind of depth of emotion and yes it wrapped up in a kind of nostalgia perhaps but nevertheless for me i find that very very effective and so and it's not to say anything of just the sheer talent of her of her voice which is just formidable.
