"Up really liking giant. And so there continued to be all through the period from the eighties forward into the nineteen nineties, and then into this century there continued to be kind of interesting reevaluations of the film, by critics, and there's a woman, fluential feminists to wrote about it in twenty sixteen and was. Praising the film. How surprising, it was for it so famous themes, and it's consideration of racial issues. So the fam- seem to continue to be connecting with audiences that, you would know ordinary thinking, my so that was born of and the other part was when I started working on the brew. These got absolutely fascinated. We've James Dean rock cuts. Liz Taylor, all these great characters lash people that appeared in the film, and I, I got caught up in their stories about the book was how you described. I mean just structurally how you would sort of get us to a point in the making of the film. And then we would stall, you'd give us this sort of summary of James dean's live leading run up to the moment where he walks on the set of giant. And so it'd be especially with James Dean, it always felt like he was setting up this bomb. That was going to explode Dame kinda threatened to take over the book today. The truth, my own feeling and I know a lot of good books out there about. Films, and particularly films based on other famous books or whatever. But a lot of times, I think the authors get bogged down in minutia about script changes little bitty details. And there's no over arching, or through narrative that connects the actors with the family, I have to MIT in the case of giant, the actors are fascinating, and I don't think they always are in. I mean realize there's other films. So it was just a combination of a film that was really important in Texas. And I'm a Texan, and it has continued to find audiences ride into well, sixty some odd years later so problem right now is finding another fan deride about this half is interesting. It really is. And join his special in that it seems to be one of the few films from the fifties that so many people from my generation millennials than even younger have seen the still interested in. That's right. Yeah. I think here in the case of the millennials here they don't see it. Let somebody sort of a scientist to them, because I use on us -tudents you know, they're eighteen nineteen twenty years old, and seen it haven't heard of it, and they may in fact, be from Texas. But yeah, there are several generations. I run into people all the time people in the sixty seventies, they say thought of women in particular, they say that's their all time favorite fill. It happens all the time you can go back and look a lot of them's from the fifties and they don't resonate. They don't connect. And I think that thing that really makes giant always relevant is to racial issues. Particularly now with the whole board of problems at cetera here in America. And this Taylor. Surprising feminism in the film. There's a great senior member when she dresses down the men. I love that. Same in the young women in my classes. They can't believe it. If you're somebody from that era who's saying, you know what they wanna say. So I think the secret thing about that film, and it's not talked about much is how wonderful the it portrays a family over a period of years over twenty five years, and I'm always amused by the fact that the kids that big and lastly Benedict have never do anything that their parents want them to do. They always go up on their own and the parents just kind of accept it. And and move on doubt. You're right. Because so many films end with that, and then they lived happily ever off, but this film starts with that. That's right, George Stevens. In fact, the director said that he had that in mind that most films about marriage, and with the marriage, and he began with it, although he didn't show the marriage, but they get married. Real quick, and then she's gone down to Texas where it's culture shot, the film goes on through twenty five years, and we see them, raise a family and grow old, and there's not many films that do that. I think the film is replete with just really great scenes in amazing moments. But one of my favorites is when they're having trouble in their marriage, and she goes back home and is, is that assist, as wedding, and he surprises her and try on rock, Hudson's performances in that moment, which is a silent moment. It's as romantic as you could ask any film today. Those few minutes. Right. That they kind of witness the wedding that we didn't see. Yes. Yeah, it's kinda brilliant. In terms of screen writing films, constantly said vetting expectations because initially it so big whose official out of water and the people who unfamiliar with the novel, that probably weren't expecting that it would actually be Leslie, who's kind of taken to this island land. And she's the one that spends the rest of the film kind of being the fish out of water and slowly, earning her her keep in Texas. I wanted to mention one in Los stray straying detailed. It is not in the book, but I ran across it. When I was doing research, enter Ferber, who wrote the book came out in fifty to ninety fifty two she was she was popular in Australia. And there were four chapters. The first four chapters are novel were excerpted and printed with illustrations in one of the Australian women's magazine. Really? Yeah. So I know there was an audience over there. I don't know anything about how many Ozzy solve the film. I assume available here on popular here. It's funny I was just talking. A friend, and I mentioned that we would doing giant and she's about my age. And she said, I love that film. And yeah. Your it's reach constantly surprises. Me come askew. George Stevens, because you highlight at you a distinction in your book, between directors who Ottesen Crossman wondering on what side George Stevens foles in your opinion. Those things George Stevenson, my opinion has been under rated by the or two or critics they don't find him like John for our hawks Alfred Hitchcock down rating that I think what happened was your Stevens is that he was a very competent director, and then his experiences in the warm, eight him into a great director. And World War Two he shot footage of the cow and the concentration camps. And it affected him so much that he wasn't able to work for about three or four years after he came back from World War Two, and then he made a place in the sun, which makes it terrific movie, any major shining, which is a major important western, and then he made, John. And then he made a diary. Right. So, so he really made in a way for major. I think that lasts about as good as the others, but he went he made these three maybe four sort of major films. There's no question my mind that without his determination and commitment, giant whenever got made five studio. He had to find a bunch of people to get that feel may. He's really one of those great director periods. Isn't it these Juliet evens it is? And I'll tell you something I was so reluctant to try to reach George Stevens and talk to him. I mean, George TV junior sorry, his son his sons, very distinguished figure. I don't know if you know that or not here in the US, he's in his mid eighties now, anyway, I thought I don't really want to try to get into with you interview 'cause I thought he might one, not like the way I was going with this book or that he would want to kind of control it or something. So I never talked to him so about a month after the book came out, I got out of the blue four page. Better. It's a real letter with a stamp on an envelope. And it was from your Stephen, and he said he absolutely love the book. Well, you couldn't couldn't ask the high appraised in that. I don't think no I don't think so at all. He, he wanted he invited me and his wife come up to Washington DC to meet him, but we haven't been able to go yet, but anyway, it was just a very generous letter, and he went into great detail. He thought there was one thing that I've gotten wrong because I, I listened to what Liz Taylor, had to say about James dean's death. And he said, my father was not cold the way she portrays it since my father in fact. So James Dean is somewhere like myself, I was about the same age as Dane that time the sun was, so I'm only little quibble he had with my poetry's his father. I was very, very pleased about that. Strengthen the book is that even though it has all of the, you know, the Clinton fighting infighting in all the details about the different conflicts on set it never feel salacious kind of sleazy, the way, a lot of these star biographies tend to be taken Tyler James Dean of had so many books, written about them where they're just very exploitative. And actually, I wanted to ask you because you must have done a lot of reading in research. How did you kind of draw the line between accurate depictions of their lives versus those sort of flourishes, that sometimes old, those will put in the was I just wound up liking each? I liked rockets and I didn't know that much about him. I really wound up liking him. I like James Dean law. He was a complete mass but fascinating and I like to this Matteo and those three interacted all the way through that, you know, they had their punch, and didn't like being vice versa, a boat really liked to Taylor. And she was. Kinda confidante for both of them. I just went of locking all those people so much that I just wanted to tell their stories honestly as I could and not. And I agree with you. Not trying to sensationalize everything that, that I say about them is in the record. There's a tremendous amount of writing and interviews by people who were in that film, lot of people been interviewed many times, people like Carol Baker plays the daughter. She wrote a wonderful memoir bunch of those, people wrote me a Mars about that period. And so that was a really rich source. Well, the relationship between the three main is kind of off. Camera. Sounds like a really echoes little happens on camera as well with Elizabeth sightless. He's become the one who's, you know, talking them down from that ledges. Well, James, Dane and wrote cubs Monroe feeding exactly. Yeah. No, it was it was very close. And the other thing I don't know how interesting it is. That somebody, you know, in Australia, but all the stuff that went on and the whole audit, his visions at Stevens, made to feel out there in this remote. It's like it'd be like, filming at Alice Springs basing..

"Parents. The crew world crying when they were shooting saying, I love that she says to him, I'm still the same person. You know, that's really important that she says, what does she say? She says you knew who you were you knew who I was. When you met me, always unpleasant from the very fast day, which is a great line because she is she's giving him shit on needs to he needs it. He deserves. Faye set the tone for Texas very early the big in expression. It's over the tall and big is, especially of the when he is asked how big his plot of land is. And I guess what is it twenty thousand his and it ends up being fought one hundred and fifty thousand his, and he says, oh, there's a couple that bigger in Texas. But it's clear that he's very wealthy that question is an affront to Texan, it's almost like asking what color underwear. Do you have on? This is what I read. Okay. So that's what he kind of acts, very kind of put out by that question. It's, it's considered impolite Ryan. Why do you know I'm guessing it comes down to sort of old school sense of pride that a lot of Texans have that may be it till little kind of gloating bit to sort of, say, well, I have half a million, or whatever it is, is, it's like someone boasting about how many eggs they've gotten their basket, and it's just let are doing on our to boast by my ex. So as she said, bef-. At the start of the film, the economy of Texas laws lead based around this lodge, scowl, farming and the Benedict's are one of the wealthiest states in the state, and obviously, this changes over the course of the film, because when loves doors, who's big sister. She leaves a small, and I use the woods, small very loosely because seems to be actually very large parcel of land to Jett rink who over hears. He then over, here's a conversation that some neighbors are having about how much money is coming in from the newly planted oil wells. And that's a million dollars a month. I think so the land is worth much. But what's below the land is with absolute fortune. And this is the title of Texas early in the nineteen hundreds, the oil, boom occurred, and by nineteen forty Texas was the biggest oil producing state in the US, and that helped the US ahead of Russia for oil production, total oil production and this led to rapid industrialization and from nineteen hundred to nineteen forty the states GDP grew two hundred forty times from one hundred nineteen million twenty. Thousand nine billion while the rest of the US grew only twenty four times and Houston, Dallas Fort Worth just in the example. They grew by the five hundred percent population was from nineteen hundred to nineteen thirty. So essentially Jett rink is the title of this nouveau riche striking super rich with oil, that's where all his money comes from, from nothing to everything and big Benedict, as a direct counter to that is, he's one of the old crew, who's determined to carry on in the ways of Texas. All he wants to do is leave his considerable wealth and land to his children and have them carry on exactly the same as the family has always been doing, and it's not until later in the film that not interested that he begins to cave-in consider the oil could be an option. One of the best things about this movie, though, is the family values giving this kind of virtuous appeal throughout and it seen with the descent of jet, and it's also same with the conversation between Leslie, and big imbed, and eventually his. Acceptance of his grandchild, who is a half, caste child, it will Stevens cool, this intimate epic, because even though it is really extravagant has got joint set-pieces, ultimately, it is about a marriage and family and Stevens keeps reminding of this, by having so many occasions in the film birthdays, funerals homecomings. Yeah, weddings. When you distill it down, it is about family trying to keep especially big Benedict, trying to keep his family together and finding these closely coming up against these outside influences. One thing that I love about the movie is wind as recurring, motif, you know, when Leslie arrived there, in a dust storm, and then later, there's a scene where she opens up the window expecting that she's going to have this beautiful bride. Son come into a face. And instead, she gets this, awful dusty. Wind disturbs Lhasa's papers. Later in the film, when they're at the hotel jets hotel that someone opens a window and all the guests have to move into a different room. So I love that as a metaphor for the idea of these outside influences constantly coming in and kind of challenging big Benedict's idea of what his family is meant to bay, and how they meant to go forward. One thing I just wanted to say about Stevens as a director one thing that I think makes him a great director is how he frames, a lot of his scenes. If you notice he'll stay on someone's face through a scene, where they don't almost don't participate in the seen an example of this is the very first innocent, where because there to buy a horse from Leslie's father, that scene starts on Leslie eating silently, there's another one where when big carries Leslie into the Ron after they've been married. It stays on laws. He was notorious for shooting scenes from multiple angles, and as a another one later in the film, where on hell is just about to go on? To war. And he's on the seat in the foyer in the background, while obviously bickers having this out of alcoholic meltdown. All windows is doing. I don't think we even get a shot of laws in that same everybody else reacting. Particularly jets reaction is probably the most interesting because we see these really formed an attachment with this woman, but I think that adds a dynamic to the scenes, it adds a fire to the scenes because you're not just watching the action. You're watching somebody somebody's perspective on the action very true. That's what makes the film so engaging. That's what makes us three hours flies. This always something psychologically. Interesting play from somebody's perspective. The movie gives us so many complex characters. It's hard for film to do that lucky, if I get one or two, maybe three. But this film, has at least ten characters in that are really interesting, and some of them don't appear into halfway through the film like, for instance, some played by Donahue. Played by yeah you do. Everyone knows him the son who marries the yet. You're going to look at his name ago. Oh, yeah. I have heard if he played by Dennis hopper. Yeah he is. He is just the name blank blank on the name. And he by the way, loved James Dean and was really devastated when he died, but he's got such an interesting journey in this film has to fight I against his dad, then next tixx, the whole world practically in the form of Jett rink. Taking rapidy claws tighten canvas but it down. Atmos- colds stays down there. Eighteen dollars, still Gordon granger's show. Sweet. Really? All his children. Even..
