"Email. This is experience Mexico here twice on the weekend. Saturday AM at seven AM and Sunday afternoons at three. P.m. talking about the beauty of New Mexico. We're talking about the Pecos. National Historical Park with Becky Lou Tonic, chief of interpretation and education up and pick up, Becky, Where do you live? I live in Santa Fe, Okay? You're really I mean, that's that's a score. That's a great job You love working up there. I think it's really nice because you know, the living here in Santa Fe offers the family the opportunities that we were looking for right, but then being able to go up to pay post every day. It's lovely. Right? Am I get to go against traffic, which is even better. I'm going in to take us and everybody else is coming into town, So I think it's a pretty Pretty good deal. Yeah, He's a really good deal. All right. So in the first segment, we're kind of talking about the history of the Valley. How it kind of is a natural draw. Um it is wet year round has the Pecos River Gloria Creek and just the the lush valley that it is before you get up and you know, started to head north towards the San Luis Valley and in Colorado, it gets colder. It gets higher. And of course, you have to go over which is now kind of Raton Pass or Wolf Creek and all that. You can also go east and and now to the planes, you can come south down to the Rio Grande Valley, which was also A very important central region for the pueblos. Alright, So we're talking about the consolidation that that smaller pueblos were, you know, kind of coming north and and and enjoining the Pecos. Um, pueblos, and and it became kind of a larger population center around 1300 correct. Yeah, from 1314 fifties. When we really see it start to expand. When do we suspect that they the inhabitants might have started to catch wind that somebody else was moving into the territory, namely the Spanish. So 15 40. It is quite clear that the news is out that Coronado and his, uh his entourage are making their way up from the South. So between 15 40 towards the end of that year in 15 41. Coronado actually makes his way all the way to pick us, But we have to remember that the people were extraordinarily well connected, especially through their trade networks. And so big news like that was Certainly being passed around. So while it was still a big deal when they arrived, it probably wasn't a total surprise. So we think 15 41 is when contact was made. Definitely. Yep. Okay. All right. So it did not go all that well in the beginning. Was it peaceful? Was it just trade or was a conquest? It wasn't conquest when they first came the Spanish, Um they were focused more on finding riches. You know, they had refresh off of their their discoveries. If you will. I don't know if he'd cause a discovery, but fresh off their conquests in South America, right where there really was. A great repository of riches. And so there was every reason to believe that North America would hold the same kind of opportunity for them. So in their mind right there, searching for gold, So they're coming north and they're looking for things like the seven Cities of Gold or Sibila or key, Vida. Whatever it was these imaginary Places. Um, but, of course, North America never produced something like that for them. So they will come back later more with an eye towards conquest in missionary work, But at first, it's really it's about it's about riches in gold and exploration. All right, um If we fast forward in time in our time machine, we had a something called a pueblo revolt, which is where the indigenous The natives decided they were not all that Happy with the direction that this uh this this new This new conquering, um Group of people or we're taking the pueblos. And so they revolted. There was the classic pueblo revolt of Let's say, 16 80. They were successful in throwing out the Spanish correct They were. In fact, they gained themselves about 12 years of time without the Spanish And then the Spanish start coming back in 16 92, but it's a 12 year breaks with it. It's pretty successful. So Pope a was a very large figure in those days. Uh and and the history is is a very interesting one. So the Spanish came back 16 92. And they re conquered the pueblos. And once again, this was I mean, I assume you're the historian here, Becky, but I assume this was all right. We're not messing around this time. We're going to come in. We're going to conquer and we're going to hold it and we're going to start to build mission churches. Yes, I think what? How you might characterize it. Is that the first time around when when they start to do their mission work in our first church, for example, built in 16 25. They go really big. Then you can enormous church, the largest church north of Mexico. Um And then, after the revolt, they realized Let's just say that their support base is not really as large as they had expected. It would be. Or I'd hoped it would be perhaps, And so, um, when they rebuild when they come back after the pueblo revolt, it's on a much more modest scale. Um Some people would call it conciliatory their approach to re conquering. I don't know if I would say that necessarily, but it's definitely a different approach. All right. Well, that's interesting enough. So the What's the correct term here? Is it ruins? Is it? What are we talking about? When we talk about, uh, Web loads, or I'm assuming pick us today. Yeah, That's a good question. We try not to use the word ruins we When we refer to what's left of the Pueblo sites. We usually refer to the remnants of the Pueblo or we call them the ancestral state. What's the most popular? What can people see if people have not been up to the wonderful Pecos National Historical Park? What will they find? So I think that most everybody is coming to see the church. Right? There are the ruins of the mission Church. Um And that's the one that dates from 17 17. You can go all through the church, which I think is really special. And we also have, um, access to the North Pueblo in the South Pueblo. And while those problems maybe aren't as visually grand we do offer to key VA's that people can go into And I think that's a pretty special and unique experience. That kind of complements the entirety of the the visit to the ancestral sites trail and then beyond that, I think people start to explore. So we've got obviously all the civil War sites the Civil War trail. And then big news for us is that coming up here in just about a year will be opening up The trading Post, which is in 18 fifties historic building from when the Santa Fe Trail was very active, and it'll have museum exhibits, et cetera that people can explore. And get to know more about that portion of our history. Um, And then we also offer tours of the fork of Lightning Ranch, which was text, Austin's ranch and Greer Garson and Buddy Fogelson Ranch. Um, and that's a really neat peak into dude ranging, which is, you know, kind of a fun topic. Um, so there's really quite alive for people to do. In addition to hiking, we've got fishing, um And, you know, just sort of bird watching on all the usual things. All right, so people can come and bring the rod and reel and fish from from the historical park. They can, but they need reservations. And so we have three seasons. There's a spring summer and fall season. If you go to wreck dot gov. So are easy like recreation dot gov. Okay, If you type in Tecos and fishing, it'll show you all the dates are available..

"And the commendation only mentions my name. I'm just the one isn't that right, Treated you I am the wife of Pierre Curie. I want to protest in the strongest possible terms. It is a distinct lack of respect. They don't like when other people's opinions ever affected anything after Amy, You saw this one. And this is ah, story we have heard before woman does a lot of work does not get the credit she deserves. Did you like it? It's interesting because you're right we have. We are seeing a lot of these films and they are important films. But Marie Curie. You know, we've been going through this huge phase of like Oscar movies about scientists with issues and what made them work in. Why's there? Why? Let's illuminate their scientific life and discoveries. But we actually haven't had a Marie Curie film since 1943. It's been a really long time. I think the most popular Marie Curie that we've seen on screen since 1943 0 no. Greer Garson played Madam Curie was in Yahoo! Serious is movie Young Einstein. If you remember that film I don't know. That's what you're renting this weekend. I didn't know there was a whole Marie Curie of rough, but anyway well, this is an interesting addition to its A strange, strange little film Instructed by margins. A trapeze, a director. I really like a lot People know who is the director of Persepolis. She did a film called the Voices a few years back. Every movie she does is radically different from the next And she turns Marie Curie into a story of passion. You know, the first chunk of the movie is actually a romantic comedy about this woman played by Rosamund Pike, who's very difficult to be around. Falling in love with her husband, and then when the to work on radio activity. Suddenly the film takes on this really interesting visual life. You know, there's these images of Marie Curie in bed, cradling this glowing tube. That light lights up the darkness and all of a sudden my Jane starts shooting What skill? It seems like a romantic comedy into this film. That's Really about passion and breaks through all of this visual language. Know there's moments where, like Marie Curie gets to walk into the future and step through all of the things that her invention will lead to, you know, good and bad. Some Children suffering with cancer to share noble. And it's almost his led by the idea of Marie Carrie. Not as a hero, Exactly. You know, in her own lifetime, she was demonized for having an affair with her husband that became very public. But as as a really flesh and blood person. It's a strange film. It's very hard to love, especially at the beginning. But I found myself intrigued by what Drew Marjane to this story and how she told it because I do think we tend to flatten. You know, icons to this, like Marie Curie should do this one thing, but But who is she really is a human And I don't know if I trust much of what happens in this biopic. But I do know that I was Dazzled by it. Room. Okay, So, yes, given a chance, I would say, definitely give it a chance. I mean, especially when it when it just starts it, turning its own kind of atoms within the film into chaos and just spinning itself into any direction. It wants to go. The movie really has a lot of electricity. Did you say that on purpose? I did it. I think I was thinking of the image of young Einstein in my head. I don't know if you remember that because you don't but he gets electrocuted. And he invented the electric guitar. See, Madeline what? Nearly one, you know, she keeps going, right? All right. Our last film of the day is called Yes. God. Yes, It's a coming of age story about a young Catholic woman played by Natalie dire and she's discovering her sexuality. It's directed by Karen Main, who did obvious child and here's a bit from the trailer. So, Alice, How would you describe your relationship with Jesus? Um, you've got mail. Fine, Just fine. I'm sick of being friends with a proven second wade sports. After lunch, we pretended each marshmallow was a different mortal sin before burning it. Yours was lost. No. Kyle, What did you think? You know, it's sweet and well, intention. It's the sort of movie we need Maura because there's so many teenage sex comedies about boys and virtually none about girls, which is exactly the kind of double standard that this movie is critiquing when you We think of movies like American Pie or Porky's or any of those domes. What you're not really thinking of, and but what is a kind of profound effect They have is reassuring boys that, like all the weird sexual things they're feeling are normal that other people are feeling that too. And the protagonist of Yes, God. Yes has no idea If she's normal or not. Nobody will talk to her. Everybody says female sexuality is to send. She's not seeing any movies like this movie. I can tell her like it's okay to be a little bit weird and have these feelings and it's pretty normal. And it makes me which that we had more of these personally speaking, it reminded me of this fantastic movie called Diary of a Teenage Girl by the director Mario Heller came out a couple of years ago has Kristen Wig Bel Powley and outside the Stars got That's more R rated. That's a little more specific, and that's a little more daring. But having the PG 13 version of that with Yes, God, yes, you know is totally valid because we just need more of these movies, period. In my opinion, and what's up with the Jesus angle in all this? Well, you know, she's signing on to be saucy, eh? Well, chat rooms and learning how to pleasure herself and all the while wondering if it's going to send her straight to hell. Which may be you know, like Those those are some of those are some steaks. Uh, yeah, and at the end at the height of her confusion about all over issues, including a rumor that's been going around her Catholic school that she did ah, sexual after the boy that I probably shouldn't say on the air, but she has no idea what it is, and she's been accused of it..

"On it. And you have agreed to go out. The child needs help with homework, right eye guy understand? So that's my report. And my thanks to everybody once sent me emails because a lot of people sent me emails about it, and there were a lot of people teased me. But a lot of people who had watched it and said, start from the beginning, you'll like it a lot more. Isn't it annoying how, when you like, always make the mistakes and then you always like kind of like, act a little foolish. That's when everybody like calls and sex. Emails and let you know like the mistakes you're making. But it was in good humor. It was it was good. Funny wasn't like people who are being mean that nobody called me an S o B. Well, I was even Tzu. I remembered a lady called and that she was talking and I said, uh, I said something to the effect like Well, did you watch it from the beginning or the middle like Pat did with Hannah, you know is I deserved it. But you've seen some things that I'm kind of interested in here. Some good ones, All right. Well, you want to pick one, or you want me to go ahead. You pick one. OK? The one I think I'm the most interested in his radioactive. Yeah, No, that was Jessica Jessica. Please start radioactive. It's a biopic from England and its stars Rosamund Pike as Marie Curie, The lady who in concert with her husband, Pierre discovered Two elements polonium. Yeah, polonium and radium. That's the one. I always remember my school and they'd both changed the face of science because before Mary Carey scientists all believed that atoms were finite and stable and through their combined research, both of them discovered that some of them were in fact not finite and not stable and that in their instability, they emitted Rays, which carried termed radio activity. Hence the title radioactive and it's based on the graphic novel this movie, which surprised me and it documents the work of of the scientist or collaborating with her husband, Pierre, his his tragic freak deaths her winning twice the Nobel Prize. You see the only woman to have done so and in two different fields, physics and chemistry, and it dramatizes the affair she had with her colleague after the death of her husband, which scandalized all of France, her assisting in the Great War War War war. Against Germany, and it pretty much covered her entire professional and personal life, and I liked it. I mean, it's an old fashioned type biopic true to the period, but contemporary Lee stylized to make it more relatable to 21st century movie audiences by that, I mean, it differs greatly from the made in 1943 Greer Garson starred in an MGM production called Madame Curie. Which you know it was MGM and it was 1943. So just did they dance? Well, no, they made her out to be a saint, basic. Please. You know, you know, and then you know, and Greer Garson was always so beautifully photographed. You know, she played Eleanor Roosevelt. She was always dignified in everything in anyway, I loved that movie, too. For what it wass and for what it achieved in context of the time, But I like this one a lot, too. This version of her life did this narrative than thing Pap of showing? By going back and forth in time, like some of the negative and the positive effects and results of her radium discovery in different years, like she would make a discovery with her husband. And then the film would cut to Ah, like 1957 in Cleveland at the Cleveland Clinic, which used this thing called a linear accelerator to treat a young boy who had cancer. Then it would return to its own time period of late 18 eighties and early 19 hundreds, and then it would switch to like the Enola Gay and the 1945 Of Hiroshima and then to Nevada in 1961. When America you know, did that atomic bomb tests where you know people were morbidly invited to witness that? I mean that that was crazy, and then Chernobyl in 1986 to show what would ultimately become of what she and her husband were achieving scientifically. In the late 19 early 20th century. She in fact died and I think was 1934 of anemia because from all those years Of exposure to the elements. She discovered radium but anyway, Rosamund Pike is in the she's excellent in the title role. She delivers this really precise and impassioned and intelligent performances. Marie Curie and, uh, Yeah, it's a compelling portrait of a scientific genius really in a Trailblazer, and they had a great woman, um, very resonant. Ah, particularly in terms of the light of the me to movement. I mean, this is a real feminist tail, too, And they got pretty Much. Most of the facts correct and they did. You know they did do a little improvising and dramatic license and all that to you know, they come comprised in not compressed in the incidents in her life, you know for dramatically, but it's It's a good movie. Where is it? Where can we watch it? It debuts on Amazon prime, I think next Friday. Okay. I want to see that. You know you're talking and I'm thinking about, you know, radio activity in its destructiveness. And I just wonder, I don't think I've ever seen images of the Bikini atoll before. They started the experiments out there with radio activity. You know, I bet it was absolutely gorgeous and it was completely you know. On unvisited ble at this point in time. Yes. I mean, I'm assuming, right? Probably. Yeah. Beautiful. Yeah. Ever beat me in C So of course nobody would. You know what? I swear to God, I'm not just things I was going to make a joke about that. You know, Bikini Atoll. I know that was so funny. Yeah. Opinion, Sesil. Okay. He was the sea serpent thing, right? They were puppets, Were they?

You know, you pull the string, and it would say, you know, I'm coming Beanie, and it had something to do with the game and how you would move your pieces forward or something that that was the puppet that you're probably thinking about What? I was unarmed puppet puppet that you would have got my arm up when I was describing it to Paul. That's what I'm talking about. Normal. Yeah, right. Well, that was I think it was a game because I vaguely remember playing with that when I was a little kid. Yeah. And Beanie was with his like little sidekick. Human being with a copter. Yeah. War little thing with a Yeah, That's right. I'm looking at a picture of it right now. And there was a captain huff and Puff, I think was his name. He was. He was the captain of that boat.

After the play. We went matinee, so we saw him between any. and. That was kind of interesting. Standing on stage with this actor, I just seen and are looking out at the empty theater and. been on stage in amateur way and I gotTa Rush. You know and I and it never left me even though I did not go into acting for at least another ten years. Because I was acade- academically inclined and I I got a scholarship to an engineering school I wanted to math prize in high school. And you know I was going to be an engineer. So. What was that ultimately? Then led you to do this professionally making short okay? I. I wound up. I had to leave school at some point because I still needed to work to get some money together. We had the engineering school. You weren't the first two years including the summer. You had no break. And I needed that summer together some money together so I out for year I told him, and they said great. You come back and you'll get. It was a half scholarship. I, had you? You get the scholarship begun? You'll just pick up a year later and go to summer camp, and then so I said fine. Unfortunately, the Korean War was on, and now I was not exempt because I was not in college. And, so they can have to me, and they were going to get me. So I beat the draft by enlisting. I figured I get it out of the way. And and that was it and I went into the army and I figured I'd avoid career. and. In the end did not avoid Korea I. Managed to get over there I was sent over to Japan a few other guys and on a typographical error. Seven of US wound up in Korea. I spent a year there and transferred out finally when I had enough credits, and got into the original destination that we were all going to go to in Japan, which was a chemical laboratory and I worked there for a year. And you know we had chemical stuff. I was in the Chemical Corps and we assayed Napalm war gases case we had to use them and all that sort of thing, and while there my time was running out, and I was going to go back to call back to the states. And here I am I'm in science you know in the army. This is all science stuff I'm doing. And I'm. I'm. Not Thinking acting or theater anything but I had a four buddies, three or four buddies who i. Work Chemists, but they had bachelor of arts, degrees and we'd go out. Evenings, whatnot and drinking, carousing dancing and hanging around with the girls, and so, but their conversations were not just science. They were talking Philosophy. Literature all kinds of stuff? and. And I realize you know there's a whole other world here and I and I like that stuff I did well in my English courses and writing and anything like that non science. I did well in those subsidies to my interest in all these other areas as well. I'M GONNA. Miss a lot being just an engineer. And But I did what am I gonNa do what would I do with my life? I'm going to go back to school now. and One night you remember. Have you ever seen the old movie called Random Harvest? Not Know that one. Okay! It's black and white as a famous British actor Ronald Colman. And the actress Greer Garson. And it was. It was based on a book by James Hilton. I think it was. And I remember. Have you seen it? Here in the state, so when I was a kid, you know and now I was watching it again over there and we get to the last seat, and this is where a guy is recovering his memory from. Amnesia, and I knew what the scene was all about and I watched Ronald Colman. Act Out this scene, and it was so effective and I looked at it. I I can do that. I know how to do that. and. The next thing I asked one of the guys. I. What did you go to school? He said I went to Penn state I said. They have the drama department there if he's it Oh yeah really good when I said no kidding. and. The bug was in my mind. And then the the fact that I was on been on stage all through school and whatnot and I thought. Why can't I I can study all the other things that I want? And major in theater. and Get out of there and get into Showbiz and if it does, it doesn't work on. The university and I did so anyway, I? Indeed I wrote a letter to Penn State. They said yes, you're on, they I got my transcript sent over. I didn't have to take any more math or science. It was all requirements we're done. And I was majoring in in theater. And then just to protect myself when I got a masters as well then went out into its theater. It's kind of interesting so as I look at your resume. See that early in your career I years. You played a lot of military roles in fact, so it must kind interested to basically having served and then having to go into a studio and pretend to be someone like that Oh. Yeah, no trouble at all. Yeah I, remember 'cause. It was on the contract wanders at one point. They had several World War Two series, going on and whatnot night played America's Germans, but military. No trouble whatsoever, you know. I knew this stuff inside out. Really The other thing is I didn't go straight. Was, an interesting when I was at Purdue University working on my masters, I was a teaching assistant there as well and I was just GonNa take two years, which was a drag, but my first Christmas there. One of my professors said what are you doing over Christmas? I, why eastern as I have a friend in Hollywood and I'd like you to meet him. And they said if you could travel out there, and you can stay with him, and he introduce you to people in Hollywood, and you can kind of sort out. What's going on out there? You should be you belong in the profession, not here in the world, the academic world. And your kidneys. And he arranged it and I think that was a saw the. Christmas of fifty six. Yeah I came out went out to Hollywood for two weeks and stayed with this writer Stewart Stern. who wrote of a movie which I'm sure you've heard of rebel without a cause. Yes, so yes, yes. Stewart wrote that among many other things. And he introduced me around various people in Hollywood and I. It was an agent cut interested, and so what and all of that He. Very good. He suggested that instead of the plunging in. To finish up your college and go to the neighborhood playhouse in New York and just refine your acting. With a a real professional teacher as opposed to you know to college instructors, and all that stuff and I went back to purdue and I talked to my major professor. Can Accelerate and get out of here and he's. You'll have to take an extra course and we could fix one up for you, they did. and. I got it out of there in two semesters and one summer. And passed, my did my thesis everything and headed off so the neighborhood playhouse, and from there my career. In New York. After about a year or so there I having my picture out you know I'd call places where they were looking for actors, and I got a call to report to on a theater was a theater call back. And that turned out to be my first job in nineteen fifty eight I know. I think I think it was also nineteen fifty. Maybe this was your first job where you worked. On the Broadway show the world of Suzie Wong and House of William Shatner right..
"greer garson" Discussed on Casting Actors Cast
"Writers and the whole theme of today's episode is about serious. I think sometimes we find ourselves in a locked kind of scenario our environment is the same our thought processes many times are the same. We don't necessarily feel like thinking outside of the box. But if you get curious. I think you're gonNA find amazing things opening up a lot of wonderful things will be revealed to you as you start asking yourself questions that demand answers so when I say get curious with Paul I mean get curious with performances and I'll explain that in a second get curious with actors and I'll explain that in a second and get curious with writers. I will definitely explain that well so getting curious as something that I think is challenging right now but I think it's for me. I know it's always challenging. I always want to remain curious to things I always want to remain teachable but certain times of my life. I kind of lose perspective of that. I lose the idea that there are new things to be discovered. There are new things to check out their brand new things to find out because if we find out about things outside of US outside our circle we're going to be finding out a lot of really great things about ourselves and I think that's the cornerstone of the reason about getting curious. So let's go down the list of things I've Made Lewd POB pee. So the acronym being pop he w performance would have told me about performance. Is I'm GonNa make a few suggestions to you and I really encourage you to take a look. Maybe jot these down if you can and think about what if you check these out already then by all means you don't need to do it but the idea being the more curious you are the more your world will open up now if you haven't checked out the actors fund the Youtube Channel Actors Fund Youtube Channel. It's an amazing youtube. Now you're gonNA find all kinds of really interesting performances. There are people making contributions left and right to the actors fund and they're donating their performance energy and their time and their skill and their talent to putting together really interesting programming from a reading of movies and films and plays Just all kinds of wonderful things going on and you can really get a comprehensive view of this if you go to that you to channel called the actors the Actors Fund Youtube Channel. Please check that out if you haven't already done so the second on my list theater mania theater mania so Google Theater Mania or go to theater mania dot com and you're gonNA find all kinds of really great information about what's going on behind the scenes industry stuff. It's a lot like backstage dot com. It's a lot like playbill. Dot Com but theater mania really has dedicated itself to providing a lot of really cool current information. And that's a great resource but in addition to that you sort of my hope is that you get an idea about the community and you're gonNA feel a part of that community and I think that that's really really valuable for us. Being part of a community and not isolated being part of a community really does infuse your own soul for lack of a better way to say it with a lot of goodwill good feelings and it's also taps into that creative side for sure also if you haven't checked out. I M D be Internet movie database. Imdb that calm. This is a really great resource for lots of movies television projects. If you WANNA know who cast whatever project if you see a movie that you like you WanNa find out who cast it. This is a great way that you get those answers. You'll find all kinds of information about the actor the producers the writers. It's really a gold mine for doing that kind of research and I don't want to say research like it's it. It sounds like you know you're in college or you're you're still in school or something but remaining curious and asking those questions and then being able to have a resource to answer those questions really efficiently. Boy that is really satisfying. I am DB. Now there's a pro version that you have to pay for but to start off with the IMDB the the non-paid version and you're gonNA find a lot of really good useful information for sure the last one on my performance of the paw series that we're doing today is taking a look at the American Film Institute the American Film Institute. Afi they have done an amazing job. Over the years of recording Broadway productions Broadway shows full productions that have an archive at the American Film Institute where you can see the original. Hello Dolly for example on Broadway. I believe and I could be wrong about this but I believe. Find out what that schedule is. Check out some Broadway shows really invest some time and get curious about how they were able to accomplish this amazing feat of recording all of these Broadway shows and then if you can have access to get into watching some of those shows by all means. It's a treasure trove of history and really amazing performances. That's the American Film Institute so that sort of wraps up the p the performance side of things. The next is what we're going to talk about actors. I find it really fascinating and I find it kind of just surprises me all the time when I bring up an actor's name and I'm teaching a class for example in young people in the class. They don't know who I'm talking about. It's like wow. There's a whole world of actors prior to you. That have really you know blazed. The trail and being curious about some performances and some actors in those performances is really useful research for you. The question that I think would be great for you to ask as what made some of these famous people famous. No I'm talking not talking about the famous people now necessarily because you got your barrel streep in your Robert Deniro's and you know that's that's great and that's all there but there are some performances and there are some actors who in their time were very very famous known for their acting work. And I'm going to throw out a few names and I'm GonNa tell you how you can do some of the research for this in addition to IMDB. By the way. So I would love if you don't know the name Red Skeleton Red Skeleton if you don't know who red skeleton is I implore you to please do a little research find out who this guy was he an actor clown and he did some amazing film work and best known for his. Cbs television variety. Show but I just would love for you to kind of do some research and figure out who red Skelton was and then study his work because I think that there's some masterful performing with him. A comedian really. It really funny actor comic actor and like I said a clown and really did a lot with pantomime and just really an amazing amazing performer. And Personal Note. I had the opportunity of meeting Red Skelton when I was under contract at Radio City Music Hall and just standing in the elevator with like this genius performer and him just smiling and just nodding and kind of greeting. And it's just something I'll never forget and so I want you to check that out and you'll see magical things can be discovered if you look into Red Skelton another actress that I think is worthwhile taking a look at greer Garson greer Garson. Now you might not know she is. You might not be that into the films of the forties fifties and early sixties. But if you check out the careers of some of these leading ladies I would love for you to check out greer Garson a beautiful amazing talented actress on those same lines a little bit earlier in our film. History I Edward Everett Horton. That's his name. Edward Everett Horton an amazing comic actor. I think he was rather young when he started but he was one of those actors that was perennially more old than he actually was. I think he always kind of looked and played older guys but really funny Amazing and You'll see him so many different times in so many different films. It's just remarkable. So check out. Edward Everett Horton also an actress by the name of Joan Fontaine. I think it'd be really fun for you to check out. Find out the movies of Joan Fontaine. So here's how you do that all you need to go to. Imdb DB type in those names. Edward Everett Horton Joan Fontaine greer Garson and red skeleton. Take a look at some of their work. Then what you want to go is to go to Turner Classic Movies if you've got it on. Cable T. C. M. I'm sure they must have an online presence as well or whatever your method of getting Turner. Classic Movies I I'm sure there's there's an online way of doing it. I'm sure that it's out there. But t C. M. has all of these old movies and you'll find out when the movies of these actors are going to be showing and you can really just sit back and check out the performances so turner classic movies is a really wonderful way of seeing some of these classic actors early on in the acting journals of filmmaking and you'll you'll not be disappointed. It'll be really fun. I think you'll find it a totally enriching experience for shore. Then finally. That's so that's our actors. Now we're going to go onto writers. Pau Performance actors now riders. The thing about writers is. I don't think actors are curious enough about the writers. They're auditioning for. I don't think actors are as curious as they could be about the bodies of work that many many playwrights have given us and I'm also including in that of course. Television writers film writers screenwriters. I I think that there is really something to be said about finding a movie or film television show or a play that you really like and then making it a habit to really figure out what this person wrote and in fact. I love the idea of reading all that writers work. Really just indulge yourself with some of these writers reading everything that they wrote figure out what they did and the style of writing but it's also the period that they are living in or lived in. I think that there's just so much really wealth of knowledge and information. If you're curious about writer so I'm just going to throw a few writers out there and not going to give you a lot about them. I just would like you to kind of do the research if you haven't spent any time on some of the classics there's one classic writer that I think you know the name but maybe you haven't read all of their work and I'm encouraging you to do so because it's just so rich and so full of wonderful material that I would love for you to Get into I think it'd be really valuable that is Samuel Beckett talks about Samuel Beckett. Everyone may be knows a play. But there's a whole body of work that would really be useful for you. I think and really helpful. If you're curious about the work of Samuel Beckett so do that now that's going back in the past right. That's an older writer. Let's talk about somebody more contemporary. That's a with us now and still writing prolifically to research reback. If you don't know her work yet please check it out again. There's all kinds of just google the name Teresa Reebok. And you're going to see all kinds of work now. Teresa is a very very prolific writer. She's written just amazing material. She's writing wonderful plays and she's an awesome human being. I know that she was in our office for a period of time and Both pat and Theresa got along really really well and just a delightful human being It just kind of one of those great people right..

"We're going to bring you stories wait before we do that. You've been watching some movies, right? Very busy watching movies wanna get into this really quick. What have you seen? Well, let me call Google, doc. Fully. Well, yeah. My oscar. I decided I didn't have it in me to do anything except watch rom coms on hallmark nut flex and luckily since both places have recognized there's this enormous demand for cheesy romantic holiday themed movies. They're just pumping them out all day every day. They're being advertised me constantly. So I decided just to watch a whole bunch of them. I watched six I watched to Netflix ones. I watched the Princess switch, which is the one with Vanessa Hudgens that I feel like they were advertising a lot and I watched the Christmas calendar, and then the other four that I watched and I can run through them. Real quick are all hallmark. I watched pride prejudice and mistletoe Christmas at the palace. Are you laughing? Don't laugh nine lives of Christmas and a crown for Christmas. What would Jane Austen say Jane Austen would come out of her grave and say pride prejudice mistletoe is hot garbage. Let me tell you. Why we'll start there. Then. I was very excited about pride prejudice mistletoe because I love pride and prejudice. And I realized with donning horror as I watched this hour and a half film that there's actually no pride and prejudice connection aside from naming the characters and places which is just like the laziest ass thing to do what a bummer, I know. And it turns out that the movie is based on a romance novel, which gender flips the Lizzy Darcy characters, which is kind of interesting. But for some reason, they just throw out the whole thing for the movie, and then they like kind of make the heroin into this like high-powered investment portfolio manager on Wall Street, but it actually doesn't work at all. And it's really boring and is like not kind of even about anything like twenty five minutes into it. My husband said, what is this movie about? And I was like, I don't know. Do you have a favorite pride and prejudice version? I am forever. Loyal to the nineteen Ninety-six BBC miniseries with Colin full. That movie is wonderful. It's really really wonderful the newer one that Joe Wright, directed with cure nightly is also pretty good. But I stand for the original for not the original original that was like Greer Garson like black and white. I don't that one's not really my favorite. So from one to five Christmas ornaments, would you give pride prejudice and mistletoe half an ornament half of a broken ornament fell on your floor. Like when it gets really when the top breaks off and super sharp on the top miss it. Every single time ES still have cuts on my hands. Yeah. What did you watch next? Well, we're going to little out of order because I watched I watched Christmas at the palace next sounds right up your alley, which is it's funny because I'm looking at my notes, and I didn't take any notes on the plot. So let me try to remember what it's about. Okay. I'm pretty sure this is about two women an ice skater and a former ice skater who's now. Ice skating coach who go to a fictional European country. It's always a fictional European country to put on a. A skating Christmas pageant at the palace, hence Christmas up the palace, and this movie was like, okay. I I have a bigger point to make about using like rural tea and these movies, which I can get to later. The thing about this movie is the two women they cast as the leads. Look extremely similar so similar that. I was hoping there'd be a plot twist where it actually be the same person with a split personality disorder. Did you ever see the movie raising Cain with John Lithgow? Anyway, I thought maybe it would be trending in that direction. But it wasn't. And I just feel like if there's anything I know about casting, and I don't know that much about casting. But it's just cast a blonde brunette or like a head in a blonde.
