He joins us now. Dr shock congrats on the new gig. Welcome back to the show. Crag it's as you can imagine but Thanks for having me and thanks for the congratulations. Why have you decided to take on this new challenge in the state of washington. Well it's You know let me. Let me just say Again with mentioned about the sweet piece is that there's just so much that we have accomplished here and and so many incredible incredible staff members Department leadership and and just across the community cross county government but across the community. That have just done. Just such an amazing job It is really hard to leave. But i will tell you that what you know it. Opportunities are when they come before you and i was asked by governor ins lease Administration to join as the secretary of health. And it's an incredible privilege and honor to be asked for that And certainly i'm hopeful to be able to take that experience from here and what i've learned and been able to do here in harris county to state level and some excited about that. Would you characterize the challenges that washington state is facing as roughly the same as what we're facing here when it comes to the pandemic. Oh craig here's the thing so it it. We're all facing the same way. So i in fact i got this question yesterday from a reporter in in seattle and it was a very Very much a question. That i thought was interesting and it was about well. You know the state is big and it's diverse and you know it's got red and blue areas and it's got urban areas and it's got suburban areas and scott rural areas and not. Everybody has agreed on how we should fight the pandemic So what what are your thoughts about coming into that. And i thought that kind of sounds like harris county So you know it's it's seven point six million people it's it's larger than obviously harris county and in population and certainly size. But i will tell you that it. It is also true that throughout this pandemic what we are facing here in our community is similar to what we're facing across texas across the country and across the globe now everything is manifesting differently. So fortunately we although we've been seeing increases and yes. These are concerning trends here within our region. We're not seeing that same level that you've seen in el paso or other parts of texas other parts of the country now again we can't let our our eyes off the the the ball here because very quickly as you talked over the month things can change and when they change. They changed quickly. And so we've got to do everything we can to prevent it from happening in the first place. And that's why we've got a strategic opportunity right before the holidays to get things Right and for community to heed the call to to really change the behaviors that were having over the holidays. And that's going to really drive. You know what's going to happen for us in the next chapter for you know for our community. What's next for harris county health leadership. Well you know. Obviously county government is going to make a decision and You know. I'm leaving an incredibly strong Leadership team behind In fact you can see it on twitter. I tweeted it out recently and it's strong. It's experienced its diverse Dedicated passionate and that's what community wants from its public health leadership and so. I'm just incredibly proud of that team. Now it's never about the me. It's always about the we when when we do activities or we take on activities and so craig what i would say is that while i may be not here and cheering this community on from a distance that work continues and that team continues and they are here and they're ready but ultimately it's going to be county government and commissioner's court. Who's going to decide what they're going to do after i leave my last day. Here's december eighteenth What they're going to do after that in the interim period and certainly beyond that But i will tell you that we've got a great team and i'm hopeful that the community remembers the incredible work that we've done you know local health department of the year National accreditation Microsoft research Picking us as the only community in the country. The only health department the country for its project premonition We've you know we were ranked number two recently and peer rankings by seven hundred and forty local health departments across the country for who. They look to initiatives. There's a lot of incredible work that we've done and craig one that i know you're I've talked about this before. Related to animals When i started at the at the department as the director are leave alive rate animals. That left our shelter. Alive was was about fifteen percent. This is twenty twelve twenty thirteen. It is now ninety eight percent. We have actually changed the narrative. These are things that we have to be proud of as a community and as a as the government. I just really want to just say that. We can't do it alone. In this pandemic has shown this you know obviously harvey and katrina rita i e carvey all these hurricanes and tropical storms but also you know h one n one ebola zico now covid nineteen. We have a lot of work that continues. There's never a good time to leave. But i'm very proud of our department and our team and i'm excited about the fact that they're going to continue that that work into the future. What parting advice. Can you offer to huston. Ian the department and its initiatives not just about cove in the current surge in cases about the region's health and general. Well a two things. One is that look cova. Nineteen is a. It's a crisis it's pandemic it is. Let's not let's not let our focus off of that so What i've been calling twenty twentieth the first half of football game. It's the first half the holidays coming up here. We're going to be at halftime. Usually people take a charge Recharge during halftime they changed strategy. They think about what's up ahead. We know twenty twenty one's gonna be vaccines vaccines vaccines and certainly We've got to be readying ourselves for the second half so halftime so critical. So if you don't have to have thanksgiving holidays with a lot of people don't and fact Make him very small holidays. a few people your social bubble your immediate people in your family Don't travel do those kinds of things if you're gonna do those things. Please look at our website for safety precautions. That's the one thing koba. Nineteen craig the second thing. Let's remember the value proposition of of true health. Not just health care delivery about prevention about the investment in public health systems. The reason that we have got into some of this mess across the country is we have not appreciated the value of public health and prevention. And so we wait for people to get sick and then we try to do things. We wait for people to get injured and we try to do things. Let's invest upfront. And if we do that in county and city and and even state and federal governments we invest truly unhealth then we can have a healthier community. Dr rumor shaw's the soon to be departing executive director of harris county public health. Doctor shaw thanks very much. Thank you craig. It's been an honor to be with the all. These

"What would you do? If you were the bucks? We've seen the cavs screw that up. Lebron right. In theory right? We saw what happened to the thunder. You know what would you do? Would you trade him? There was even an inkling that you think that he could go elsewhere. If he turns down, the supermax is not an inkling, right? It's it's a heads up. So I would probably. If I were in charge I would go to him and ask before you even to Supermax if they don't have confetti on his shoulder. Before I even offer him a deal I would ask him what does he think the team needs? And if he gives you. Sensible. well-thought-out responses then I have faith in thinking he wants to stay. But if he mumbles and says, I don't know and he's frustrated that means he's up in his feelings and he might be looking to make a move in which case I were probably look at the lottery. Asked myself, which of the top five teams may have disgruntled players that we can purge and try to some kind of deal going. That's what I would do with. My first order of business is a check where his head is and to see if he's like Oh, man, we're right there. All we need is Blah Blah. Blah. Blah. Blah. At he says that then I'm feeling Kinda good. But if he's upset and not give me an answer or saying it's your job to figure it out or. What it's coat say we need or something like that. Then you're in problems. Strikes the. Strikes me bill with accounting guy who's looking to stay. I think so too I think he's looking for reasons to stay, but he's GonNa WanNa win a championship and I think that's GonNa play a big role here. Greg wants to weigh in of course, go ahead greg just like every other great player in the NBA he is a Hashtag future. Laker. I. Think the Lakers will be in the mix for sure I. Honestly, that's where Moma maybe I'm wrong I think the Lebron thing plays against them there. Yeah. How's that going to work? Going to work I mean are you saying like Lebron would be with him or? I think all of it. The Lebron the team like I don't see that. No. I don't see it just for the personalities, I? Don't see it. I. Don't see that either I think John is more of a Co is high, but he wants to do his own thing I. Don't think he wants to be a follower the only I mean look the team that has the best offer to make and it has been this team and every time I mentioned this people in Milwaukee Freak out. Okay. But Golden State Warriors can make the best offer. US offer what it is from a trade can make a pretty. Yeah. Okay. Wait I'm going to. Ask for teams. Okay. Yeah. The other teams that I think you cannot overlook you cannot overlook the Toronto Raptors Jerry with his background in. Africa and knowing you want us to draft out of out of. In that draft, he tried to trade up and get him but then there was a weird thing that happened with Oklahoma City and he couldn't trade with them a long story. That's one Miami obviously they don't even hide it right? They're they're they're saving cap space for the summer that becomes a free agent that's they don't even hide that have. Jimmy. Butler Tyler here on books that summer right, and they also have some good young players. So if you are, if you are the Milwaukee Bucks and he honest turns down your supermax and you to think about trades I, don't think he even necessarily I don't think you want guys in the lottery year. This strap sucks I you want people to future assets. I think the twenty one draft is way better. There's a lot of really good players in that twenty-one draft. Is Diane Raft? y'All? Real quick is. Are we expecting the High School Kids Dinners that twenty? Two I think that's twenty two. But because twenty one, the top player in twenty one is kidding Jalen Green who Is going to. Lead right yeah here in La. Here, in La so there's there's a bunch of guys in that draft are seen as like that's going to be a really strong draft. I twenty one picks but I think you also want young established players. You want that kind of trade that the Pacers got for Paul George where they got deep bonus to future. All Stars. Okay. You want you need that kind of return and right now the team that you look at that House that to offer is the warriors right I mean probably would include Klay Thompson which I don let scary but you'd probably have to do that. And and a lottery pick this year and some good young players that they drafted and developed I. Think you also I think you look at everybody though thank you look at Atlanta look good young players and some of their draft assets Boston. Celtics still have a lot of draft picks go lot of good young players. If this is available, the whole abilities are endless. Yeah. By the way Michael. Mike is not going to let Michael I'm telling you now klay traits of a walkie. There's no direct flights from L. A. I'm just letting you know I've. I've had to make that trip before. So, even recently so there were no direct flights. Michael's not going to love that if that happens. Eight seven seven years let me grab Ali and the OC up..

"Slop sixteen, Sixty, two, the whole game. I. Love To. Love it I would that too. I didn't love it because it wasn't about the defense as much as it was about this bad shooting right? Jamal got hurt early though. A great night anyway but I answering just fading. Right no one can really make a bucket and then I almost jumped off my balcony on the street because when they went for the layup at the end of the game. You understand how this game is play if that was. How To win Crazy I literally I. Yelled so loud when he went for that lay-up Nevin. I was in the other room because Nevin was watching Daniel at the time never came running in the room. Are you okay and I was Oh was the end of that gave yeah he was like, oh. My God. I thought you hurt yourself or what? That you see anything. Stupid. Colleague player stupid. But I'm just like that. If one of the dumbest things I've ever seen a professional athlete do in that moment like the game is one and you're like, no, no, no no. I want to snatch defeat from this victory. Yeah. It was it wasn't jr esque but I mean it was it still was there up there I would say it's very It wasn't JR Smith Dumb but it wasn't great. That's for sure. I ask you the question actually to narrow this down because I don't even want include Russell Westbrook in this conversation yet who would you rather have in game seven right now? Chris Paul or James Harden Elsie? In, this series or just in general tonight, you have to pick one man that. Can through see. You Chris Paul Okay. So you think they're winning that's under. Well that's a different question. Okay. Rather have. Okay. So you'd rather have Chris but you don't think the thunder necessarily winning. I think the rock is going to win but I love the way that Chris. Paul not not westbrook not hardin not no coaches. No one else has owned a series where the Chris Paul has. He's the narrative he's out the biggest mom. Is the best story. And this is a Chris. Paul. Series can affect it as southern. Put it. This way he will be going from layer at these up with ten seconds. Right, yeah I mean all I will also say I would prefer to have Chris Paul on my team, but I think Houston wins at the Houston should be winning issue issue already be over. The Houston's better team they have more talent, but I'll go back to something. This is somebody you know this is something. I don't want to identify this person. Okay. We'll. Talk in person personalities. Initials a former I'll tell you later. Okay. Former player from ident- Tony said to me once you know, Mike is a really good coach great with XS and os but he's got to have a great locker room leader because in terms of like confrontation turns just controlling that locker room really leans a lot on whoever the leader of the locker room is in Phoenix Steve Nash. So they were good. Right and other places hasn't been as good run. I think you look at what's going on in Houston right now. Should we James Harden's team? I'm an old it is I think might be the Alpha in that. Locker Room. And I. Think you see that reflected on the court you saw that the other night when? Why has Ross have ball there like at the end of the game why is that Russ that should be James James even fighting through screens James Warranties walking up the floor. Yeah it was going on yeah. I mean you you just see places like that and it's indicative of something else going on. Yup I. Agree I think that generally is the way these things play out Now let me ask you this. Do you believe Momo no matter what happens the rockets I don't think they're gonNA win the you know I think they may win tonight but they may not win this the way they're supposed to win. What kind of change do you expect like we know Dan Tony is probably out That seems fairly obvious. There's already whoa dirty talking about him in Indiana, right like but do you think like personnel? Wise we have to see changes here I here's what's so weird about this. Like theoretically yes everything they did this year was to go all in on this year. They just went all in small ball forever. Let's row. THUMB LOUISE WRIGHT WE'RE GONNA trade away everybody over six eight. K.. Go, small ball but. How they going to change his team around. Like. Yeah. Like what are you can change some of the parts but unless you're are you going to keep building around? James. Are you going to Keep Russ? I if you're not gonNA, keep one of those guys than what are you doing? You're totally overhauling it are you gonna get a whole if you're going to get it if you're going to bring in like let's say Tai Lue or something. He's not a run the system that Dan Tony Ran Right. So what are you why you have that personnel if you're going to have a whole other system that doesn't fit anymore Part of me says, yeah they they'll. They'll tear it all down everybody the out and prizes if they even can. Right right. Let's go to the folks eight, seven, seven I'm sorry go here. Honestly I don't even care. I don't care all I. All I really care about. Is Making sure at main players legs as fresh as possible. For the series in the Western Conference final because neither one of these teams tonight, we're going to beat the Lakers but Houston will require more effort more energy. Yeah. For Women running around chasing is no question. So I would much rather face. Okay See. So they can conserve energy however at the end of the day, it's about making sure you can move past this team so as I as possible for the clippers. Yeah. I mean, the rockets are clearly the stiffer challenge I. Don't think there's any question for the Lakers. Let's go to Brian and Valencia. Brian. What's up? A guy thanks for taking my call. You. Know it's DP three. and. We're going to oak. Okay fi the Lakers in the next series without a doubt. Here's why. He'd be three me if you. He's kind of like the Russell Wilson, a basketball he's great quarterback. Any brings out the best in the players that he has to work with I mean look look at the guys that Russell Wilson has been thrown to all these years right undrafted, free agent whoever they are right Here here's what I would say that Brian and thank you for the call and I feel like we all understand this the guys have to buy into Chris. Side manner doesn't always play well with everyone else. Particularly, other stars and I think he's on a team without any other stars and I think that helps right. Well certainly helps that. Out of everyone in that locker room, he is the hall of Famer. So even before he opens his mouth and you start to waiting carries himself. He's the one with all the GRAVITAS. So he's going to have the attention anyway, and the way that he was traded made it appear as if he was washed up which I didn't think he was washed up Houston. I didn't think he was washed up at all. Obviously, he wasn't a guy who was finished second MVP voting ten years ago whatever the hell it was, but he's still. A top five point guard in this league. So I really felt as. He walked in the best baller, but also walk the in asked the hall of Famer. And that right away commanded respect. The other thing too is that Chris Paul takes over for Russell. Westbrook. So you're talking about a bunch of guys like Post Traumatic Respiratory Syndrome, right They were they had a pretty domineering. Leader, in that locker room before that. So like Chris Paul I, mean I don't know if I would describe him like comparatively Russell Westbrook. In terms of how they leave their both guys that you Kinda have to fall in line and listen to that wasn't a shock to Oklahoma City system..

"She wasn't great but she really tried she was always saying how? She would get a lot of heat for that because her parents were Mexican American second generation, which it happens a lot as the with a multiple generations in they don't speak Spanish. But no I at least one Alathea to play the role and that's why Jaylo worked because her Spanish is very broken. So she didn't really have to try hard to portray her because that tells selena spoke.

He's going right to Dallas because toobin wants he wants tough. Do. Put on their Luca. Okay. So y'all hate him now because he's not, he's not he's not want y'all but he I, don't hate him.

Then I'm good. Good. Yeah. Thank you. Yeah I mean I did you think that was like? And it was all right. I. Thought it was all it was like it was like an eighties Pistons now. Got Got. The follow through was what was whatever wasn't? It was a hard foul. It. Could hurt him but Lucas big boy you know. So he didn't just get knocked over he was. A little bit. You know The Guy, the mavs are going to sign away from the Clippers mantras that's that's the one we need to worry about. Oh. There you go. Put It on the Scroll Mama Mama says, he has to the mavs that trump is going to be one of the best free agents, this summer and I know Marcus same thing. But like both those guys are going to be in demand I, don't know this is going to be good free agent year at all for anyone because of the pandemic. But if I think the the latest thing is the salary cap is they're going to the owners are going to try to keep it like exactly what it was this year in other words, it's not going to actually reflect how much they made. They're just gonNA keep salary cap the same so nobody has to pay luxury tax more so or they you know they don't WanNa have it drop because of the pandemic right? But it just means it's also not going to go up. So teams are going to be pretty frugal with. What the dollars this year because they're losing money all all over the place. Well. It's going to be open to taking is he going to be open to taking tier to money? He's probably GONNA happen is sites on Tier one money yes. We have big questions very a lot of these guys like Gallon Ari. That's another one you know the guys who thought they were in line for big payday They don't WanNa hear. Oh we can't give you that kind of contract because of COVID. Don't want to hear it. But I think. It's China and everything else. Yeah. The salary cap is going to go down. So I think that's going to be a challenge to potential fiscal eight, seven, seven, hundred, ten, espn, who do you want at game? Seven tonight rockets thunder who do you want and why who is the opponent you want for the Lakers and why eight seven, seven, seven SPN coming up next I'm GonNa ask you and Momo LLC.

How Did Juneteenth Get Started?
"Every year on June nineteenth, millions of people across America. Come together to celebrate June eighteenth with parties parades, prayer, breakfast and golf tournaments, cookouts and music. The holiday is now officially recognized in forty seven states plus Washington DC though it hasn't been made a national holiday yet, despite having been around for more than one hundred and fifty years. We spoke with Paula Austin a professor of African American Studies and History at Boston University. She said You'd be surprised. There are many students who get to my class, and they sort of never learned about the history of enslavement. They've never learned about the civil rights movement. I think I've had students who because of where they're from, or their families know about June eighteenth, and of actually participated in the celebrations, but most students come, and they don't know. But let's go back to the beginning on June nineteenth eighteen, sixty, five more than two months after confederate general Robert e Lee surrendered to ulysses s grant at APP Maddix which all, but ended the civil war, a US army officer by the name of Major General Gordon Granger. In Huston Texas with two momentous announcements, the end of the civil war, and with it the end to slavery. Nobody is quite sure why it took so long for news of summation to reach Texas several stories have been told throughout the years though none has ever been confirmed including one of an earlier messenger who was killed on his way to Texas to tell the news of freedom. Others believe that some enslavers truth, but simply continued going about business as usual. The most likely is simply that there were not enough troops to enforce the emancipation proclamation whether enslaved people knew about it or not, so things remained status quo. That is until Major General. Grainger showed up. After granger's announcement, some of the two hundred fifty thousand freed people in Texas, immediately left for the promise of true freedom in the north, while others traveled to rejoin family members one formerly enslaved person, Molly Herrell said in the slave narratives of Texas. We all walked down the road singing shouting to beat the band. Others stayed defined pain work in the fields elsewhere. That day marks what is now often called lack independence day, or the fourth of July. It's the American celebration of freedom from slavery. June teen was first observed in Texas in eighteen, sixty six. It wasn't officially recognized as a holiday in any state until Texas did so in Nineteen, seventy nine. Since then only North Dakota South Dakota and Hawaii have declared a holiday. In recent years both the US House of Representatives and the US Senate have formally recognized June nineteenth as June, tenth Independence Day. Various movements to grant the day status is a national holiday are ongoing. US Senator Cory Booker said in two thousand eighteen. On this day we must confront ugly parts of our history and honor the slaves who suffered and died under a repressive regime. We must also pay tribute to all those who had the strength and conviction to fight to end slavery and keep our Union together. June teeth independence. Day is also an important moment to recognize how far we've come and take note of how far we have yet to go. Certainly during the original June eighteenth, there was still a lot of work to be done. It came just months after the civil war ended and two years after the emancipation proclamation was signed by President Abraham Lincoln the Thirteenth Amendment to the US Constitution, which abolished slavery, had been passed by Congress was well on its way to being ratified by the states, but the fourteenth and fifteenth guaranteeing equal protection and the right to vote to all citizens, regardless of skin color were still a couple years off. And not all enslaved people in Texas were immediately freed some held by defiant plantation owners were not emancipated until much later, some formerly enslaved people who tried to leave historical reports show were tracked down and killed. Many more stepped into a future of poverty, fear and uncertainty. Austin suggests that many Americans ignorance about June eighteenth stems from a disinclination to completely face the country's past slavery, and it's far reaching and continuing aftermath. Still? June eighteenth has persevered. Its observance has waned through the years under the oppression of Jim Crow laws and attitudes, but the festivities that began in Texas eventually spread to more states and the idea of commemorating block independence picked up through the civil rights era of the nineteen sixties, and the parties continued today. Austin, said the kinds of celebrations that I've seen and been a part of have been incredibly wonderful there about black culture there about black history there about the resistance and the resilience of the black community. Several years before grainger made his do nineteenth declaration in Galveston famed American Orator Frederick Douglass himself formerly enslaved, spoke to an abolitionist group in New York about the fourth of July. As being dave independence, and how it didn't fit for all Americans, he said what the American slave is your fourth of July I answer a day that reveals to him more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. Opel Lee a former schoolteacher counselor in Fort Worth. Texas has been instrumental in trying to get June. Tenth recognized as a national, holiday. This year she'll walk from the Fort Worth Convention Center to the will. Rogers Coliseum, leading a caravan, urging people to sign a petition for the cause leave who is ninety three years old has been part of the Fort Worth June eighteenth festivities for more than forty years. Last year, it's as important as the fourth of July. In fact I dream some day. They celebrate from the nineteenth to the fourth like they do Mardi Gras.

It was very sad very lucky to have you all working with so yes when we were. We were collaborating but but also he was. He was great in that world around us way. In a way we didn't really know what it what what it was when turn out to be in that regard We're very much I saw the film about a month ago and Ours don't how cool it's it's beauty style. It's not. Oh Yeah Yeah I mean that's I that's some of the best sort. I've seen film a long time. So Happy Avenue's yeah. It was really neat and all of you to I mean I know the training just didn't come. I know you had to do it for a little while to get to that point and do it over and over. But you wouldn't know it by watching. The film is really I know. A lot of that is about repetition short just up but most of the night it was the stunt double pace chain. She didn't stop me So finally when we came to unicycles win happens that much other It's been luckily private Sussed oh Jesus but at times it got a little got a little dangerous and we were pushing not one hundred percents far as it's speeding in power But close. Yeah no I like her. I like her she she her character to me. Kind of evokes a little calamity Jane kind of character from the oval last kind of. Yeah Yeah. She's a little awkward. Yeah a little boyish. And but yes A lot of them. Oh absolutely there's a wonderful scene where they're sword fighting into desert that that. I think people will really see that. It's a lot of things going on besides the sort fight I really. I like that part of it too is it was nice in and he is Euros there's wonderful. She's got that that. Clint Eastwood thing where he doesn't have to expressionless he's stealing exactly yeah and And for Western isn't causing US. That's really works especially close up. Certain ones want reactor over the express. And it's Kinda like I look at it as a mythical western you know it's That's the way that's the way I can see. Yeah because there's really nothing quite like this the only thing maybe a little bit of Kung Fu but if you took and made it more mythical maybe that's what you'd have have you'd have the warriors way a little bit yeah and with the host sort of stable mythical stable element services and the Carney's just Wonderful clowns I love it of the colonel. Hates understand why people out I think people will enjoy Geoffrey. Rush the little things I've seen him in. You look at the look pretty good pretty good. The town's going for shock Sudas. Exactly exactly that's great. It's interesting I do want to ask you You actually you're your writer and a very good one and I understand. You have a project that you're trying to get me called day of the debt that's correct and based on a novel by an ankle can help cool And it's a. It's a dusty. Something Border One how Nice Without ripple rather powerful senior taxes. You know all kinds of stuff that I don't like Casablanca. Yeah there you go just border crossings. And and It's something I've been developed into the last ten fifteen years costumer. Yeah have options book over and over again and But I mentioned back back into the saddle and Direct again just sticking with this and You know I love acting in a way directors on on the project. They're the ones after have to wait. Painfully Funds Eternal Green lights on commission making their phones. So I know what that's like and the Try To time side music. How it can happen there. Yeah it's IT'S I. I hope I hope it does happen because you know the day and that is its own. You know -nology too and I I like that. Yeah I'm almost pinks purples. Yeah Now oh absolutely absolutely i. I'd have to give you Kudos for your role and thirty thirty days of night. I thought he was That was a memorable vampire. I'll tell you that back. And hopefully we'll see you again You know as a striker in other wolverine if I yeah you'll probably see maximum the conspirators. Oh there you go and Robin restaurants. Nice Very Nice. So you're obviously busy always I'm trying to keep up but this is cool. I guess for the DVD. You guys did some things for two and I guess you'll eventually do commentary as well. I'm sure it'll come to that some points. Yeah at the moment We wait with anticipation for being a fight at night. Yeah there you go and that'll be the first time using it with an audience correct. Oh cool yeah really looking for. Oh Yeah Yeah it's Kinda it's an Korean section town and they're like oh good so they'll be some Some fans like that's one thing that. Jiang is a big star in Korea very yeah and you know people were saying How this is an opportunity for these kinds? Asian cells do into Hollywood. I kind of feel that there's an opportunity for Hollywood breaking Korean. Yeah I think he can play both ways now. You can be a really good thing. That would be awesome so you get or more of an interest there too. Yeah Yeah it's an interesting As far as that works a little differently than some of the other directors. You've worked with necessarily this one Say something that I really enjoyed was just husband. Laws clear concise. And I've seen I've seen like the. He's all he after takes. It seems like whoever was in the. You all got a chance to watch what you did and know he didn't all those carts cut taxes Chester's reopened. That's a nice as directed yourself. You can appreciate that. Yeah very very open Respectful lovely match the producers of the Korean producers to our lead actors villagers out at all so I guess there was hardly if there was any location. I couldn't tell it seemed like everything was studio. Everything Student Wow. It's amazing how do you have? I mean there was some heavy galloping near some beach just like two hours away from Oracle so some of the long stretch of voice back like those words on Jerry but the whole the whole backgrounds though yeah sure but even then even even if we were on you know outside still WanNa be outside of the. We're going to see and as far as you're looking in your transformation. Is You know a lot of actors a cold me. That when they start putting the makeup on they find the character a lot easier. Was that the case with the colonel or every month. Because there's an the mouse was such a large part of this character and the way the Nass was so hikes straps force me to speak way. Hct headed certain wage. I can only really one. I changed that made me move my head and Character and he also had like a Cape like outfit too so not the easiest. Probably move around it. No no that that that force me to move in a certain way so it was at first a little hindering but finally Very instrumental in threaten characters actors movies. I mean there's a graphic novel quality to this movie. There's no doubt about. It has just help but it comes across in a good way. Yeah I believe so too. I'm sort of like a memory. Yeah Yeah I see that. I definitely saw that like like even you know Ninjas th this guy itself was like You know very very much like you remember something rather than maybe what? It really is exactly. It's almost like somebody is telling this myth or story and has been told over and over again and embellished bit more every time. It's told yeah now I is there. Will you be going Doing anything any other films coming up as far as shooting No not for the moment I'm hoping to dedicate some time film that I'm developing and Now the next year. So I'm Kinda trying not in a way should not work right now so I can work on my own thing very cool. That sounds great. Appreciate you taking the time to talk about this project in a real pleasure In your family is I think one of the first families of Hollywood as far as I'm concerned thank you sir and I mean the work that you've all done speaks for itself and there's a Lotta great work there. We'd take lack of screen and on happy holidays..

You'll appreciate this particularly Daddy plays a character a very evil character during a show called Magic City Ben Diamond. Do I have this right you. Based in part the character on On Edward G Robinson's character and key. Largo Yes yes very much coach and Edward G Robinson We're talking about McCarthyism Actually I think there were problems. There were problems there between my father and Edward Oh interesting but yes very much That the seem when he's introduced and he's in the bathtub and there's the Fan van and he's smoking a cigar For me was very much wanted to enter into that series magic city Kinda like that And he just had this had sued him but also a fear and insecurity security which which I thought was was great and something that I could always draw from Again not playing the villain in two and two obvious obvious a away. And and sort of Maya Lansky AC esque Kinda Kinda world That Ben Diamond was was was and I felt I felt in a way that I would just I would give up all that thing about analyzing villains and trying to see where they feel and providing them with a scalpel and trying to understand. I thought I'll just give all that up. How about I just came as a really a clear a man in regards to what is the right thing in the wrong thing and this is sort of honor amongst thieves that Ben Diamond has however grotesque or appalling his actions and he is appalled? Yeah however he believes leave that he is doing the right thing. That it quantifies to to in regards to respect but also honoring bring your habitat. I always thought Claire. Trevor was the thing making him insecure in that movie Yes yes she's the thing eating at him. Yeah absolutely yeah ABS- ABS- absolutely and he's scared of the storm and he's a fright that's right. He's afraid of the storm. Yeah that's another hell of movie. Yeah you know you made a Frankenstein picture we were talking before about the Wolfman and Gilbert. You'RE GONNA you're GonNa Watch this movie your you and your friend burned rose Who you've worked with many many times? I watched this picture of very very bold. Audacious kind of approach Frankenstein telling it from the monsters point of view. And just when you thought you'd seen Frankenstein covered every way it could possibly be done and you guys found a new way in and thank you. Is that a disturbing movie to watch it is it is and don't forget that Bernard rose comes from can directed directed films like candyman. Beethoven movie. I loved immortal. Beloved I absolutely loved it and we worked we've done about four or five tolstoy adaptations reputations. The first one was was one called. Ivan's Ecstasy based on the death death of even alleged. That really was my calling card in the sense as far as acting But I I loved working with Bernard he's like a punk rockers. Unapologetic approach he starts makes. It doesn't ask anybody for anything and then it also comes together because he believes that I'd somebody asked you in an interview if you were a fan of the genre and you think you you. You cited Ken Russell's the devils as a fill the schedule and that's a terrifying vying fucking movie but also the exorcist. Yes and it's gone. I remember my mother. Don't with the devils. I remember her covering my eyes in the movie theater and me sort of peaking through fingers made it all the more tariffs. I'm sure I'm sure Gilbert you'll appreciate it because and this is fascinating day in the movies made in two thousand fifteen and yet it's respectful to the shelley source material. You have the blind man you have the little girl who he throws in the water. It's a it's a real a punk. What did you say about about rose? It's a it's a punk rock. Take on Frankenstein and yet. It's faithful to the story. I I believe it is yes I mean the the the interesting thing that burn it does he. He's his adaptations are very faithful but in a way because of necessity They're obeyed in in his backyard And so anything. That's changed as changed really because of war locations and that So No it's it's not. It's not that much of a of a conceit. We're trying to do everything right. But within the within the limitations that we have Gilbert you're GONNA love it. Yeah and I I I dare say I'm I know he's seen the James well pictures because you could. Just you could just see this little moments of Amish. Yes yes absolutely. Yeah absolutely on another interesting interesting character you to think that you've played Samuel Adams Victor for a baron Frankenstein Orson Welles up and my favorite Robert Evans. How yeah? I hope I hope the old man would be proud. uh-huh hopes and what range did you approach Robert Evans about playing him when you did you did this in London. I very much did It was I I went to his house Alson and he looked me over up and down and said I think yeah I think you could play And we spent a little time Talking about his His his experiences and he showed me lots of photographs and I started to examine or enter into the man's memory really And Simon McBurney who directed the play Used a glass box which the glass with turn opaque or you can project different images on it and it starts with a a man Telling his life story And he's talking about when he was a kid and young actress plays As as a kid and I'm kind of looking down from the box. Wow at my life in a sense. And as the story progresses the box slowly creeps closer closer and closer to the front of the stage and then finally my character who's basically a shadow becomes becomes clear and we're and we're in the present present day And then he's sitting and he's watching watching television and he realizes that all these characters are no longer there and and you know he looks at Eva Tyrone Power and Dick. Sonic and they're all gone. And and but he's he's the last one there He's he's still in the picture. How interesting I've I've seen the documentary of course and I wondered? How are they going to do this? As is a stage show and yeah it it. It worked mainly because assignment Bernie's Insanity the way that he Staged it was was Very reckless and there were people filming at the same time and the actors were coming back and forth changing their wigs and their costumes and it was it was a ah told at high speed and I love to sit. Yeah was it recorded. It was recorded. Yes Barbara Broccoli produced. Okay she she. She recorded one of the love to see it. I love the documentary. CanNot before we let you get out of here. Danny can ask you just a couple of questions from listeners. Certain as the sun that we call grill the guests Mark Mark David off. Which of Danny's father's films would he have loved to direct not just in terms of the quality but just for the sheer experience and a great question of making that film? Wow well my my favorite film on my father's Is really more. It's more more from ocean reasons but it is a great film. We mentioned at treasure of the Sierra Madre and one of the reasons that my father directed at he's in it And and my grandfather as as as we said earlier is in it he gives a fantastic performance I would like I would like to be involved in that film. But maybe maybe not Not not directing it just making all those guys drinks the answer you know Stanley Kubrick. You know this you must us notice. That was one of his desert island films when he was asked a really ten films could take treasures charter. The Sierra Madre. Yeah yeah good taste. Yep Quick one theresa. I guess you'd have to choose. One of his one would have to two thousand. One you'd have you'd have or strangelove or yeah Theresa Kampman says as a director actor has danny picked up techniques or ideas from some of the directors he's worked with like Scorsese for instance. While I guess you know when I was when I was really really really young I I got I got.

We did for for turn classics. Yeah absolutely now on the big screen denture. Okay sorry no please go ahead. What I find interesting about Maltese Falcon is that at least someone now were to say? We're doing a remake of Maltese Falcon. That would be blasphemy. But that was like the third. Maltese Falcon the bogaerde version. Yeah one was played for laughs. I think yeah. I'm his father's reasoning on that. Was I remember him saying I. I don't understand why people remake good movies. They should remake the bad ones and and And the the previous version of Maltese Falcon. I believe we're not all that good And and so he'd figured out a wave to to to make it to make it work rather than Making a a great film again and making it not as well of course I I remember there was one version with Ricardo. Cortez I've got the the the previous version Ricardo. Cortez I should mention my favorite topic vic. Although he was given a Spanish romantic Spanish. Name Hughes A Jew from the Bronx I love love and Owen to white fry right and it's like it's so similar to the boat guard diversion but it just doesn't work interesting. That movie could have made George Raft an even bigger star and he must have kicked himself self for years. Let's let's let's let's hope so. Let's hope so but much to my to my father's Chagrin much to his delight I I believe he really wanted Bogart in it So it worked out. It worked out. Yeah Yeah and he's able to slip win. Wilmer the gun.

That's that's CORTESI has restored and guards Komo carefully Rarely rarely screens them. In case in case there causes any damage to the print but it's it's like stepping back in time because because these print services so pristine and it's like looking at glass or something there untouched and that that romantic thing of of watching L. movie with all its scratches and his bumps black vinyl record is is in a way part of the experience so it's quite shocking when it's just completely clear here without any With with no flaws at all and you really feel like you're stepping back in time and you appreciate how modern these films are yeah. I read that he shot the whole thing and sequence that he he he detailed everything he wrote down in sketchbooks he knew every shot entirely story boarded. Yeah he was determined to come come in under budget and on and on and it wasn't yeah it was entirely story boarded and he was he was quite a no my father for cutting in the camera. so he never really shot an establishing shot or a wide wide shot. He he would. The camera would progress through the scene and he'd never returned back to the assertion. I remember this scene with Bogart Lori and Mary Astor old screaming at each other with the two COPs Burt Ward Bond Ward Bond. And who's the other cockpit remember.

And so so so oh he loved. He loved the new equipment. I I'd love. I'd love to see what he'd be what he'd be up to now as far as you mentioned censorship earlier You know these wells. I mean they were just so so avangard so active uram mentally and and and You know it's it's it's still still still a big loss making films at the time that they were being restricted by the hays office in many ways. Yeah Yeah and and it made them use their imaginations at your nations more back than sneaking stuff in it was always fascinating to watch movies. Then we'll like you say the caressing of of the cane I mean that's that's stuff is just as wonderful. It's so much fun to sneak it in and and it gives the film layers. I liked your dad's You know offbeat films. I like wise blood. I like fat city. I mean people. Don't talk about them as much as they talk about. Even the list of Adrian Messenger. They don't I don't know what he thought of that. One it's pro- it's problematic but so much fun no absolutely and you know inbetween. Wise Blood Volcano he slips in Anne and then and then he makes fat city and does escape to victory for the company store. Yeah he'd just he'd he danced around and he's a great film. It's not not not put it down in any way but it's not. It's not what you'd quantifies being a John Huston out with Liz on the subject of list of Adrian Messenger I think his name's Jan Jan Merlin. Who was an actor who was in it who died recently and this hope? It's true to from Alan. John Ascherman told me that all of the characters in heavy makeup in that movie that at the end reveal themselves shelve says Frank Sinatra and Tony Curtis and burt. Lancaster were actually this one actor and they showed up up for that one day of pulling the makeup off but they weren't actually in the move that's fascinating it makes complete sense. I don't I don't I I don't have any an- any any proof. Proof of that but it makes complete sense. It'd be a lot cheaper to get jobs day and there were you know these guys were so much about trickery the and stuff like that so it makes complete sense even the scenes were Kirk. Douglas in makeup were a lot of it. This Jan Merlin. Right right right it makes sense. I find it interesting to now. Is it fair to say that you not that you back into acting. But that wasn't the original goal no not at all Be The accident away. Yeah well I was. I was Very committed to directing an only direct thing and I remember a again China's a teenager being being in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. While my father was making film Coleman who would be king another great one And there was you. There was my father and Michael. CAINE SEAN connery. Christopher plummer kipling book of course and Atlas Mountains of Morocco Rocco the blue people. I was just having the time my life and I remember going into the makeup trailer and Michael Caine.

Yeah it's a good movie. Not a lot of people talk about it. Yeah blackheart very very. They were very well made. I thought Novel originally written by Peter Retell And I remember my father saying that Peter Tell tell asked him if he gave him the book to read first before he published. It asked my father would be okay to publish it. My father said yes of course But he later said to me he would have published it anyway But he liked. He liked the myth la the mythology that Peter Retell created for him and everybody that worked for my father was was up and up in arms. saying that it wasn't a crook a correct depiction but My father liked it interesting. Well the film is certainly made with affection for for your dad and for for the subject matter. Yes yes comes I believe it is yeah and you you were born during the making of a film that they use to show on. TV A lot. When I was growing up and and that was Dr Freud with Montgomery Cliff? Yes I well I like. I like to say we were to use. My father's film film doesn't sort of measuring stick that was conceived during Freud seems appropriate born during the Bible and and t- on night of the Iguana. Now I may have the chronology completely wrong but that's that's the way it sounds close when you made Mr Mr North and by the way you pretty young and I. We're talking off Mike about your about your first picture about Mr Corbett's ghost which I guess you made for the BBC. I've been yes. I mean for English television and I cast my My father is a collector of souls yet. Typecast electrically and I had I had Paul Scofield. That's the all alternative to my father's All by fathers. Doing and Burgess. Hysterical and Burgess Meredith my doing marathon. I became really really good Powell's And I used to stay in his place place in in in Malibu and we my father and Burgess Meredith and I went to the Sea of Cortez looking for a team To make a film film about the C- Literally searching for a theme and there were in the middle of the Sea of Cortez Reading Steinbeck's the log from the Sea of Cortez protests and and drinking and talking and they talked about their their lives and their marriages and it was. It was a very very a special time and we stayed in small little cabins. I remember Burgess mayor the saying that I was his womb mate. We've heard a lot of Nice things about him from people we've had on the show and interacted with him. He was Grayton talking about myself. And the Penguin of course of course of of course he directed he did a lot of things made a good call them out on the Eiffel Tower. Yeah Yeah and and his book is wonderful. As well Burgess Book Book twenty-five when you made Mr Corbett's ghost and aside from the fact that you're working with the giants your dad included but also the great Paul Scofield I mean it's very competently Bentley made. It's it's spooky and it's and it's I mean you're a kid thank you thank you for a fresh fresh out of film school Before that I I I shot a title sequence credit. Seek was for my father for under the volcano with with some papers shea dolls I used to make Drinks for him. Depending what part of the world we were in Mexico at this particular moments in time he was drinking Kuba laborers and And I I made him as his drink at the end of the day when we'd watch dailies Russia's and he complained he looked at it and he said no no he said the the coke should only color the rum A great impression so I imagined making drinks rate was a fulltime job. Bob One could keep busy at it back. That's that's for sure but it gave me the opportunity to not only a a happily make drinks for him but also to sit in and watch watch dailies watch you know. Watch watch how he made. We made films and He he turned around to me. This particular incident turned around and said Danny you come out of film school. You're you're you're you're you feel like you direct something director title sequence. And he put the fear of God in me and and I did. And he he handed over. Gabriel Figueroa was one of the great cinematographers Mexican cinematographers and and I shot the title sequence much to my delight and he liked good movie under the KENO and I grow up Being in love with old monster reached movies and I heard from my friend down nicer. Man that Your father was a screenwriter for both the where Wolf of London and the invisible man. Wow that I do not know that'd be right uh-huh and I heard he had written a scene that back then was to bless for miss to put where off of London where the character puts his finger in the holy water and it starts to boil and later on. That was the scene in an Devil's advocate with Al Pacino. Wow fascinating out that you didn't know that no absolutely pray to God. It's true tanning. The course he was an accomplished screenwriter before he became he. I mean it was a success if I if I'm not misspeaking the success of High Sierra that led him to get his shot on. altis altis falcons. You're absolutely right and and The studio didn't want to give him a shot a Maltese Falcon And I believe it was George Raft. Th that they had that cast and he didn't WanNa work with the first time direct yet and he certainly didn't WanNa work with Walter. Houston's Kid so So he he's he said no he wouldn't do it. And and Walter had enough pull To be able to say look. Give them a chance and I'll be in it As well and that sort of seal the deal and you can barely know. Oh Him. But he's the captain that comes in with of course Salkin very small scene but fun POPs out there okay. We make him do this on almost every reshow.

"To shoot a movie and getting involved in this this this Crazy the Italian politics. That's right while while he's trying to finance a fellow yeah it's Eh ambitious storytelling. Had you met the man in your lifetime. I met Orson Welles. Ah with my father when they were talking about the other side of the wind in a restaurant in Beverly Hills or Hollywood and An Orson was eighty. The eating eating a great deal as Chen was covered in grease could see my father feeling. A little queasy was a hot day. The father just adored him and and and and adored his sort of Machiavellian ways I guess my father was maybe a better poker player and hadn't playing the studios. You know giving one to them in a couple of for himself and he he just tiki. He knew how to play the game. maybe in a in a more cunning cunning way but or or was just You know so Honest in his rebellious spirit That's that sometimes He didn't get the money that he's so deserved. How how old were you when you met him? You must have been. I was in my late teens teens. Yeah mid mid mid to late teens and they then went back to the to a screening room room and watch the other side of the wind and talked about how it'd be cut now. Did you realize back then. A lot of people who are in the business young there are around legends and they go oh so and so are they source and there's whoever and they don't get the full impact. Well we've had a lot of people on the show who were. Who are the children of faith very famous parents like Griffin Dunne and his father dominic tons so he grew up with Elizabeth Taylor and all and all of these people at the table? As did you. Yeah if a gardener sitting across from you owe Ava Gardner I remember the first time meeting her. It was an an restaurant In in London and she she walked in. She's wearing dr shells maybe hardly any makeup and She was just beautiful and she bruce sat down. We'll have lunch with my mother and even and I and And after lunch when Eva left I said to my mother I I think I'm in love. She slapped me in the back of my head she goes of course you are. They have a gardener. For Christ's sake PAT. Were you jaded. I mean we're being around all these people that had take you years to realize the while the scope the this the no. I don't think I don't think jaded as I slowly start putting it together I understood I I started to understand the the world Gerald but You know I got confused very early on in life In regards to fiction and reality I I remember seeing one of the I cuts of of film that my father made Based on a rather well known book called the Bible and and the the We're in sort of editing bay kind of screening room situation and the film starts and everybody thinks that their father is is a God I guess ask for certain amount of time anyway But the film starts in. And I hear in the beginning. And it's my father and he's gone I real and then it continues and then suddenly he appears Noah. Wow that's so cool. My father is gone. And he's No. He's walking into the Ark Animals side by side and I'm thinking this is just fantastic thick. You know so it's It it the AH I I never met my grandfather Walter. But the first times that I saw him was wasn't my father's films And I thought he was that character I thought he was The gold perspective from treasure of this year Ahmad. Well my grandfather. He's that convincing that you believe that you believe. He's he's actually any learn Spanish. Yes yeah that's right. That's right and he took his teeth out famously. took his teeth out. He's it's so amazing his range Enj- is like you see the early Walter Euston films where he's like a leading man and then later on he's like this crazy old prospector rolled into the K.. Leaned in as they say to the character actor thing yeah he yeah yeah he was something else and then other firms that you mentioned earlier earlier films like rain and dogs the devil and Daniel Webster Devlin Daniel Webster and then there were none. I love him in vary so many and I always always remember him doing that dancing that little Jig and treasure of Sierra Mike going you're dumber than the Jackass uh-huh die here worsen rats to that. What do you say you were? You were sixteen or seventeen. When you met Orson Welles none of you know it? Just the funny turns that life takes that you would end up playing the man on screen. What might have gotten out of there but what I did which which actually was was all the more one of my most poignant Film experiences really was they were missing using some dialogue for the other side of the wind. or some of it was just really bad badly. Recorded there were problems with the soundtrack So I went it to an Internet. Er dubbing stage. And I was the voice for my father and I would say things like you know. Action cuts A- and I it was played back. My father spoke to me range from from the screen. A voice that that his voice I returned back to him that is surreal while you were also in in hitchcock another man. Your Dad knew another man that my dad knew I'm played by the wonderful Anthony op. Great in it. Yeah and you and again you played a real person. Can I played a real whitfield. Cook watching that picture And again I know you do deep the research into these characters especially the bad guys Andrew in winfield not being necessarily a heavy in that movie but but it doesn't come off very in a in a very flattering way. How much of that was factual? How much of do you know? Our Alma actually did. The consummate affair is yes. I believe leave that there was a certain warmth that they had towards each other primarily because because she spent a lot of time alone own and hitchcock was doing his thing and this was an opportunity for heard of maybe how just a cocktail with somebody from Fr- from time to time without without the pressure of it being of it being hitchcock and and my character I think somewhat feels the same but he's also manipulating it for himself. Yeah it's a good film. It takes a little this little creative license. But it's fun to be a documentary. Hit Tanaz xactly. Hitchcock comes always comes across when they talk about him as like like a very frustrated individual and strange feelings about women we had Tippi Hedren here on the show. She has her own experience. This yeah that that'd be my father's now now now of course I always have to ask you the famous people that you've worked with of course Humphrey bogart no. No you didn't work with him but now they're no sadly not Sally Bogarde Yes to to to Mitcham Yeah you directed Mitchum in fact directed. Mitch Yeah directed mentioned my my. I made made a film called Mr North early early in my career based on a foreign wilder novel and My father called me and he said Danny Fai were to fall. Ill is it okay if I were to call call somebody to stand by and I said well yes of course of course if it makes you you'll be fine but of course if it makes you feel better as common on call Robert Mitchum and and sadly He did become ill and Mitcham stepped in aerobically and they they. My father was was in hospital in Newport Rhode Island and Mitcham said look. I'm sorry about the circumstances. But I'm I'm glad to be here to help. And when Mitch and left Durham my my father lowered. His Oxygen Mask looked at me winked and said biggest hoax. Sorry pulled which speaks volumes of of the man doesn't it I mean the the the show of Bravado and and and He Luli and his generosity towards me and and trying to make light of otherwise is a rather sad moments And and his admiration for Robert Mitchum. Yes well who was one of those people that you've got used to seeing around when you were when when you were kid onset it'd be the morning Bob.

It's it seems to be the the family business. That's that's for sure you know we just watched Laurel and hardy both of us and you turned up as Hal Roach. Yes fascinating fascinating character. A great character to play and and I was always a big fan of Laurel and hardy and as a kid did and And when I saw John C Reilly and Steve Coogan in their in their wardrobe and makeup and and doing this sort of magical delicate dance. I promise you guys. I forgot my my my dialogue. Really just gobsmacked. It was astonishing. They really disappeared into those parts. Yeah and and how wrote produced your favorite might of mice and men. Oh Yes yes. That's right yeah and It's funny 'cause like playing Laura plink famous characters like that is really tricky. 'cause you don't WanNa be a nightclub kalab comic doing an imitation no EXAC- exactly but but That character was was pretty much just sort of chew a cigar chewing studio boss. Yeah Gosh I I was. I was quite happy to play a little arch. You know a little. Yeah yeah and I only have so much time to screen time to play to tied to make them identifiable. He came on a bit data scumbag. Oh you do research into your characters Dante and you must know that he was a Mussalini sympathizer Yes and and and and also a quite a dictator in in his in his own studio And and claimed a certain owner ownership over standing all the and so yes. I do like playing deuce bags. Ah You played your share and now speaking of dictators and Mussolini You're a when Hollywood Hollywood for the longest time wouldn't even mention concentration camps or Jews or anything thing and then at the end of World War Two they wanted a document The Holocaust and I think they sent Alfred Hitchcock Doc John Stevens George George Stevens. I knew I missed that. That's okay George. Stephen Salford hitchcock and your father Johnny to document and John John Ford I believe. And and and and a few others but Yeah my my father made a very very important documentary ca. Let there be light yes. It's great and it's Soldiers suffering from post traumatic stress and and and the hypnosis that they go that they go through now apparently that the screening that he had which was a screening for the armed forces sources. did not go down very well And everybody left in order of their rank and finally the theatre was empty and then later He won a Congressional Medal of honor for it about that. Yeah and and it was The the army insisted that soldiers See the film so that they understand the psychological impact war. He must have been very proud of that of that. He did that. I did another one called the battle San Pedro which was also also great and Yeah very very very much involved The Second World Wars as there's a lot of the directors of that time were and they came back and made extraordinary films. I read I think. CAPRA got some resistance to when he may why the why we fight series. Yeah there was a lot of pushback and I think George Stevens after he did the Holocaust documenting he was very effected they all were changed. Yeah capital it was. They were haunted by it the they were haunted and the films that they made after after it was very interesting because some of the some of the films were very light and fond and an entertaining. Even though there there was always a sort of undercurrent current of of Something of a work of depth But they all went their different different directions. and Yes Yeah Stevens. And also frank CAPRA Different filmmakers entirely but suffering from the same experience before before for the fifties when your dad got so disenchanted with the way things the way things turned that he wound up going Ireland. Which is which we'll get to later? Yeah yeah did your father ever talk about what he saw it there. Yeah I I remember him saying if I ever make a pro war film please somebody take me out and shoot me. Oh Wow wow strong statement. Yeah you know though the bravery of the man and and and and what they went through was was was also a her heroic heroic qualities that these men had under these incredibly really tough circumstances Let's not forget his his film Red Badge of courage which is very much about that about oughta somebody who who who doesn't commits an action that is considered as heroic but really it's it's just because of survival and he had a hard short-time without one to was it was it wasn't re cut. It was cut. Yes I let Lillian Ross. wrote a wonderful book about yes. I remember reading that in your Dad's memoir more in an open book. Just WanNa talk to you talk to you again about playing real people. Because we started with Hal Roach. You also played Orson Welles. Oh wow in faded black lack. I think Marlene Dietrich said a once you cross oneself before mentioning his name so come up a lot on this show. We head Bogdonovich here. Oh yeah a lot of orson stories. Well you know the other side of the wind. is just That Frank Marshall was able to L. But put together after such a long time and Classic Orson Welles style the the the the the film the negative ended up in a vault in Paris And chain title the ownership on it was completely up for grabs because In Classic Orson Welles style. He had the I believe the cousin of the Shah of Iran financing excellent minor revolution in that country and things became complicated but because of that. And they're sort of maverick over experiment my father and They were able to make this incredibly. He's a spellbinding aggressive avant-garde mental. This is filled that that that you don't see you don't see today. No it's a shame. It took so long to see the light of day. Can you do any Orson Welles for us. I don't know about but I'll I'll I'll save. I'll save a okay a couple of John. HUSTON WANNA a play wells as a as an impression you wanted. You wanted to take a different approach. yes I mean as I said there was. You know there's this I definitely felt overwhelmed by the idea of playing. Somebody is as large majestic as Orson Welles. But then I I have my own little private chat With the guys up there with my father and wells on and I could see that they found it very funny so decided to play in the light heavyweight men. It's a fictionalized account. Of course it's about him going to Rome.
Houston Rockets gear no longer sold on Chinese sites
"Well began on Friday with rockets general manager Darryl Lori putting out a tweet that was an image that expressed support for the Hong Kong Freedom Movement the controversy began when the rockets Maury fired off this tweet fight for freedom stand with Hong Kong that statement of support for hypocrisy protesters was seen as an affront to the teams Chinese fan base tweet was quickly deleted but the damage was already done Tillman for the her of the Houston Rockets this does the rockets very quickly teams owner tweeting more he does not speak for the Houston Rockets China reacted strongly they condemned Daryl's comments China's council the General in Huston urge the team to clarify and immediately correct mistakes any statement on Sunday is the NBA there was shock at just how big a story this has become and now we have a geopolitical incident that was affected really sparked with one tweet Chris Mannix you've been covering the story for sports illustrated do you have any idea why Daryl Morey tweeted support for Hong Kong all of a sudden no I've known Daryl Morey for a longtime he's an incredibly smart guy I don't know what was the impetus for the tweet and it's interesting that he would do that just because Daryl's been the GM of the rockets for a long time and Darryl knows full well the influence of the rockets in the NBA on China Darryl is the GM of a team that was the home of Ya Ming one of the biggest international stars ever so he knows exactly what kind of effect this is going to have and he went out there and did it all the same aside from China getting angry have there been any consequences for the NBA well ten cent which has a long standing deal with the NBA they stream the majority of the NBA Games they're responsible for the close to five hundred million viewers that are watching NBA Basketball in China they announced that they will stop showing Houston Rockets Games the Chinese Basketball Association which ironically is run by Ming at this point they said that they were cutting ties with the Houston Rockets its sponsors affiliated with China pulled away from the rockets so anything Chinese effectively severed their ties with the rockets in a very short period of time okay so China got mad the rockets owner tried to sweep it under the rug I saw rockets players trying to deal with this James Hardie it was like apologize we love we love no plane you know we appreciate the support that they give us individually in as an organization so we love you but how did the NBA itself react all the NBA's reaction wasn't great we reported the NBA statement saying we recognize that the views expressed the Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey have deeply offended many of our friends and fans in China which is regrettable it really this is supposed to be the woke league they did say in that kind of word salad of a statement that Darryl had the right to say anything he wanted but they said that he had to write saving educated on the matter and that rang a little hollow with some people so wasn't a very strong statement in the NBA face pretty swift backlash Senator Ted Cruz Texas Republican said the NBA is quote shamefully retreating in pursuit of big money Democratic presidential candidate who Castro says the US shouldn't allow American citizens to be bullied by authoritarian government they walk it back at the NBA walked that statement back very quickly so you'd you know Adam Silver who was over in Asia anyway as part of these international games that are taking place right now he made a much more forceful state in a statement that frankly better reflects I think what the NBA really stands for the long held values of the are to support freedom of expression and certainly freedom of expression by members of the NBA Community and in this case they're more as the general manager of the Houston Rockets enjoys dat right as one of our employees I understand that there are consequences from that exercise of an essence his freedom of speech and we will have to live with those consequences in the NBA coaches like Steve Curry Gregg Popovich takes wrong positions on domestic issues Gregg Popovich was quoted calling Donald Trump a soulless coward wonder what the people sick about who votes good for him where they're line is how much they can take where does the morality and decency kick in NBA didn't have anything to say on that publicly so the NBA really can't take a position on Daryl morey saying what he said publicly so the NBA initially kind of bungling their reaction they recovered pretty quickly and put out a statement that I think better reflects positions how're the NBA state Vince perceived in China it seems like you know anything short of Daryl Morey being fired and his comments being disavowed is not going to satisfy the Chinese government the Chinese Basketball Association or anybody that might be involved with this story they came out with some statements of their own saying eh agreed with the NBA's position on this but the NBA has stood pretty firm and that's really all they can do at this point there's a good chance that the NBA loses some money as a result of this but in the grand scheme of things the NBA doesn't need that money to survive so it's a bad situation the end I would like no part of but it doesn't really affect their bottom line so who needs who more here does does the NBA China does China need the NBA more I would argue that China needs the NBA more than the NBA needs China I mean China can't walk back decades of NBA basketball being in Deuce to its population and more than a billion people the NBA proudly touted the number of people that play basketball in China it's three hundred million they talk about the number the watch basketball in China it's just under five hundred million about twenty one million people watch game six of the NBA finals this past year that's an astronomical number even for a domestic viewership you can't just take that away from people in not expect people to want it back there really isn't a alternative in China they have the Chinese Basketball Association but it's nowhere near the level of basketball that the NBA plays on these stars from the NBA from Lebron James James Harden to Steph curry they are close to household names in China people by their sneakers they wear their jerseys he's but it's still unclear exactly how far China's willing to take this do you think right now the NBA is regretting how open it is on speech I mean the NBA has proudly empowered its players to speak up to be political Lebron's spoken up a lot on race steph curry and some of the other warriors have spoken out against trump coaches give political speeches can the NBA walk that back when comes to China when it's so encouraged here no the NBA can't walk any of this back in they have to live with situations like this they simply can't turn around and create new policy that says players can't speak on political issues or social issues and frankly I don't believe the NBA would do that the NBA's organization has established itself as a progressive one knows just back in two thousand sixteen when the NBA pulled an all star game out of Charlotte because the League disagreed with the North Carolina Bathroom Bill they've Asian themselves as a league willing to take stands on these types of things frankly I think the NBA relishes the attention that it's players get for taking stands on issues like this so behind the scenes maybe there's some conversation taking place some reminders about just how much money is being brought in in foreign markets but overall the NBA's not gonNa stop anyone from saying anything about any particular issue the

You've got your father down of course because you've I even heritage wonderful speaking voice or maybe cultivated as well but you do your you're an imitation of your father. Almost you slip in and out of it seamlessly and and it's it's joyful to hear thank you yeah. Clint Eastwood couldn't quite get bad quite yet but the film board works yeah. I like the feel I liked the film Do you think your father well he as he said of the book. It's going to happen anyway. So there's no point. I think he'd he'd be delighted. The anybody bothered was he. He he regarded Philip highly of course but he he also was quite light hearted about it. You work for Sofia Coppola speaking of family relations into family dynasties indices in Marie Antoinette in an rather amusing role but I don't think you've ever been so costumed more bewigged before for you wigged yes that was working. Severe was a lot of what was was was a lot of fun and we were in in some mm sort of palace. Just outside of Paris it wasn't for cy was somewhere else Alice Christner Kristen Johnston and and the the the the emperor I I. I give him tips on how to have intercourse. I believe and I related to a a a clock o'clock and keys how you have to put a key in a hole and turn to cetera forgive for afflicts symbolic picture. You laughed him and I said the word location. Is there a reason you thinking about about a particularly awful location. I know well. I suffered awful locations. Gladly my my favorite awful. One was was in the middle of Australia. When I made a phone call the proposition John Hill coat directed Guy Pearce Ray Winston and a few others Emily Watson and that that was so hot and miserable and and the fly ridden that you you really have to learn how to act with your fellow flies you and and and still look you know somewhat dangerous without but it is it's a great luxury to be able to travel to places that you wouldn't go to ordinary and experience them with people people that are working that are from their reading experience the country and the and the people and back to my father. I do love talking about my father for more than I knew myself but you know he took African Queen to the Belgian Congo and he was one of the first studio film directors who took the film to the actual location even even going to Mexico for treasure of Sierra Madre. That was exactly that was not typical at that time yeah. I know it wasn't just outside of Puerto Vallarta. I remember and then then Puerto Vallarta became very popular remembered saying I ruined I WANNA lay on it says that mayor so everyone understands of course and and was Richard Burton Deborah Kerr and I think eva was was there. Yes it was. NFL Elizabeth Taylor was visiting so it was it was it was quite a tabloid think to write about. Where did you shoot Robin Hood with Lee Scott Robin. I was oh just outside of Pinewood Studios. Oh okay okay yeah so exotic 007 stage there yeah but yes. It's it's it's on succession which I just worked on that show so much why it's wicked. Jerry Jones just came in a really. What more do you need in your life. You've all these people Jesse Armstrong. I mean the writing and I it just it's. It's super is I believe and yeah we were filming in Croatia. Uh which I've never been to before and that was that was that was great. I loved love visiting Croatia. I'm looking forward to go back at some point and it's not it's not that expensive uh-huh film a lot there for them you know. I walked into a bedroom and my wife was watching the low stone just a few weeks ago and I saw you get gunned down is. I guess you're not in yellowstone anymore. No that's it. I feel fooled you at the end of the first season aware everybody thought I'd I'd left show with a noose around my neck but sadly now I'm mm-hmm you keep up with all of the things you're on because I struggle. That's when my dad said that to me and he said Oh I just watched him Dan Yellowstone. I said Oh God I'm watching him on succession. You know it's like busy. Gentlemen thank you and thank you referring to me as the gentleman I yes what happens sometimes is I mean for instance. The last photograph fi wrapped that two years ago and so sometimes it just so happened that everything comes out on at once and it looks like you've done it all at once but you but you haven't cells you gentlemen but yeah the Taylor Sheridan with with yellowstone. I think he's remarkable writer. you know the the native. Americans the old ranch all land owners and the new land developers and those three worlds colliding. It's just a great piece of Americana and an America that I don't particularly know and Taylor's great that epic sort of landscape and Buffalo runs etc.. I haven't Costner and succession Russian yet another America more more about the viciousness in in the dialogue and and the sort of clever maneuvering of these of these rather despicable characters but very modern day characters and then I came out with another film called Angels Angel Has Fallen which is a fun kind of popcorn a shoot-em-up of a film which was delighted to be with Jerry Butler has been was a friend many many years so it's great to see him do so do so well and at the same time I had the last photograph in one theater nationwide Lamley in in Santa Monica now. It's now it's off onto. Its digital platform can find it online now. Now yes yeah you can avid now. Now I want. I want to mention a show that you were on that didn't last as long as I think it deserved to my magic city city a- We got to play a gangster. Miami look into wonderful production to see yeah. I love that character. Ben Diamond is it a Meyer lansky kind of character Miami late fifties and and and Mitch Glazer The showrunner and writer of his father was he grew up in Miami but his father was very much in the hotel business and and so the design was extremely precise and detailed chandeliers. Everything's absolutely absolutely correct and I loved Ben Diamond. He's just I I said I I like to key into a character and understand what makes them tick what with Ben Diamond and I thought well you know what just play for what he is worried about the psychology and and I really I really enjoy them and and maybe you know the show. The audience know the show or not. He's he's a real sort of cigar arch showing but but he also has there isn't sort of weird and integrity you know so honor amongst thieves enjoyable to play those twisted beyond belief. Let's let it out. Yes you let out your Cathartic Kartik playing a character like that anyway. you know I in a lot of a lot of the folks I play a lot of villains and and and and some of them when you when you reason them out I mean I had a line in the constant gardener where where the where the character says those patients would have died anyway and he's talking about these people that are in Kenya that that that of AIDS and they're testing pharmaceutical drugs on these people and it's just almost hard line to to comprehend how anybody could actually say hey that when you start reasoning reasoning it out with the help of the Kara and and and start to identify why this man would say something that when you say a line like that with commitment and understanding it's quite chilling and that in a sense is taking the scope Loughton prodding a character and seeing where they feel so in a way. It's in a way it's an an education. You understand things that you wouldn't want to understand otherwise the actual the actual sword fighting and shooting a gun. That's that's kind of play. You know just kind of fun. I always think of the the good and the bad of being being an actor. One of the coolest things is that you get to learn how to do different things whether it's shooting or you're playing a doctor. You're playing a lawyer whatever it is it's the the idea that you get to acquire a new skill and and I think that that's such a such a wonderful way to live that someone calls you and says all right you have to be able to hold a gun and a flashlight realistically so really looks like you're a detective or police officer whatever it is you know today. You're going to be a lawyer so you really need to know your stuff and have this down pat. It's it's all that's. That's the fun bit. I it is and to keep to keep learning and just and and to keep your mind mind fresh and open and I'd love to actually go back a friend of mine the other day I'd love to go back to school and just learn for the hell of it. You know just just have fun on and without any any kind of commercial ambition and that sometimes when when you're when you're lucky an acting point of view you can you can apply that and that's that's a great luxury. Would you call home. Well kind of wherever I hang my hat talk. I had that impression. I asked the question whenever I go to a new country. I'll always whom he could live so it's a and I I don't really have a strong sense of where it is that I'm that I'm from our our family are are. I like to say tinkers. Gypsies pneumatic Walter was Canadian Irish by descent. My father was born in Missouri Nevada a place called Nevada in Missouri and I was born in Rome Italy. I grew up in Ireland as a kid and then he moved to Mexico and I've been in. La I mean La does have that sort of seamless quality that we're talking. When you actually realize my God God I've been here very long time. the House I live in at the moment is a rickety old houses. It makes lots lots of sounds That's a the whole in the Hollywood hills. I've been there for fifteen twenty years. I got to visit your father on the set of his last movie. The dead and of the we were going to interview him for entertainment tonight during lunch break. They said I he's GonNa take a little cat nap yeah as as as a habit and then he'll he'll come and talk to you and.

"Hi Leonard Maltin and I'm Jesse Molten and you're listening to the mall movies are great pleasure to have our guest today Danny Houston. Thank you for having me well. It's it's a treat to have you here because we're fans. We're unabashed fans who said that before but we tend to have the people on this show that we really admire you are one of them and you've done such extraordinary work as an actor. I just asked you off. Mike like because I didn't want to embarrass myself by not knowing if you ever had formal training as an actor you said no no I actually haven't had the the great luxury and privilege to observe wonderful actress at work peering over my father's shoulder father's formidable formidable laws for actually actually he's a giant. It's impossible impossible to do that but but yeah it was just I was just talking the other day about my memories of of being a young kid in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco watching my father direct man would became and you know for a kid were the blue people there Michael Caine Sean Connery Christopher plummer and and it was just an exciting adventures kipling esque time and and and to see see these guys at work was just incredible treats but also I observe Keanae. Did you always know or was it faded that you would be in this business. There was a sense of doom and and but I I saw my father at times. Believe it or not struggle. you know the amount of money involved to make a film also a circus act around founded Maybe the sometimes the nonsense so so I I love to paint. I like to draw draw and I went to I went. I resisted I I went to I went to art school and I think it was my first source second year in art school I we then went to WHO opening gallery openings and as as part of the course and I I saw people drinking warm white wine and that there was just as much nonsense around the the art world Egos et CETERA CETERA and how to market yourself and and and so finally relented and I went to film school where I went to the London international the National Film School and my first job as as a as a director was was it was for my father he was watching the the tests that they did for credit sequence were filmed that he may call under the volcano and Wonderful Malcolm lowry Albert Finney and and he there were these papers shade dolls from day of the dead and they were very static struggling to how how to make how to make it more exciting to make the shots more exciting and I used to make him depending what country we're in. I'd make him a drink. Drink when we were looking at Daly's at Russia's and in this particular case it was Kubilius Rum and coke and I brought brought him his drink uncanny and he said no no no the coke should only colored the rum and and then he looked at me and he said Danny they might you be interested in directing the title sequence and and it was put the fear of God in me and but of course I said yes and he handed over Gabrielle Figura one of the Great Cinema just gave me hard up again and I shot the sequencing Quinson much to my delight he liked it and Mr Figueroa. Mr Figaro was I as Gabrielle because my father just discovered a steady case at any to come over here. Michelle look look at that now. What is it? It's a steady cam. Wow how is yeah. I don't have to lay tracks as cameras attached the man I can just I don't have to waste all that time and and it was a complicated shopped the it started in the theater and then it came out through a market and into a square with bright light and I said to figure out so how do you how do you light it from darkness to light. How do you do it and Gabriel said it's all a question of balance and and that's the lesson I got from one of the Great Masters assault question a balance but give us a real shot the sequence for me. I I was able to get the camera in there move around these these dolls and and and yeah much to my delight liked it. Oh boy how would you have been I would have been in my early twenties. uh-huh what an Opportunity Man oh man now remember the first film set you visited. It probably is. I'm I'm Mike my understanding of fiction and reality are a little confused in all honesty but I like to say if if one of my father's films measuring stick that I was conceived during a film you may call Freud and born a during the Bible a completely honest and TV them on night of the Iguana but but my my my first the first film that I saw in the editing bay being made was the Bible and and the film starts and for all of us. I guess our our our parents are godlike for for a while at least but in this particular case the the film starts and I hear my father's voices in the beginning God my father is God yeah and then the the film continues and he plays Noah and there he is walking walking into the Ark with all these Animals side-by-side i Alec Wow dad's Noah and then my mother turns up in the film and She's playing Hager and she's she's in the desert dying of thirst. I she's been injected by Abraham and and she's that I have Thurston then she but she has a kid and the kid wasn't me I house thoroughly and and I've been confused ever since my goodness and just to just to sort of sort all of this out so everybody everybody understands and your blood lines are extremely a elite. I think that's the best word for your grandfather was the great Walter Walter Huston one of the finest actors whoever trump the boards as we say and who won his Academy Award as best supporting actor in your father's movie the treasure of the Sierra Madre in a role that your father wrote specifically for him to play and then I father won an Oscar that same year for making the movie so they it was the first ever father's son duo to walk away with ostrich the same evening and and rightly so. Has It ever happened again. I don't think I wouldn't I don't know I don't think the same picture but of course my sister Estrin Jellicoe won an academy award for honor and your your father was he nominated for for that was nominated didn't win right so they came close yeah. They came close. I I remember I remember my father talking about Humphrey Bogart and saying they're having a conversation that he told me he said that he bogey were discussing whole award thing and and how those sort of vulgarity to it and cheapness to having to sell yourself in that way ah but then when when Bogart one his his academy award my father said he seemed inordinately proud yes you can you can be flippant about it until you're GonNa win exactly exactly and your grandmother. Walter's wife was a formidable actress. Yes L. Yes of course my sister Angelica and now my nephew Jack yes which is a tremendous family business. I hoped it sag gives you guys like extra stor credit somewhere to have that many of you in their family rate discount or something I think I wish I could be absolutely picture but I think I attended a press conference for Mr North film that you directed from from a screenplay that was sort of rewritten by your father yes and that's I'm looking my my year nineteen eighty eight and which has now thirty years ago if we can believe that and he was originally to star in it as I understand the he was unable to do yeah he called me on his way to Newport Rhode Island where we filmed it and he said Danny if I if I ever were to fall. Ill are they were to happen. I'd like to have something just to stand by just in case I I saw I'm I'm sure I'm sure you'll be fine but short. If it makes you feel that Isa I'll give Robert Mitchum McCall and so he he called Robert Mitchum and and had him stand by sadly he did become it'll and checked into the hospital at Newport in Newport Rhode Island Island and Robert Mitchum heroically turned up and set to my follow John I'm sorry about the circumstances and dances but when I'm here I'm delighted to be here and when you left the room my father was an intensive care. Basically my father lowered in his oxygen. Mask looked at me and said bigs hoax I ever pulled this. I think talks about the the generosity of the man you know the the the the largeness of spirits and and showing that that that little bravado and at that point speaks volumes yeah. They're so how many there are a lot of terms my dad nigh are annoyed by only because they're used so frequently icon you no legend these people say it for everything you know but truly your family. You've got icons icons and legends and it's always interesting to then here about the human side because especially in my house growing up with this one on you know again. The name Houston loomed large so to then hear stories when someone talks about something personally hell even just saying so Robert Mitchum in came through so nice. I'm sure every kid when they're making their first movie has Lauren Bacall Harry Dean Stanton David Warner Virginia Matson Mary Stuart masterson and Anthony Edwards and Anthony Edwards lead the lead role in the lead role now. This has to be the dumbest most obvious question I could ask but were you intimidated working with these people and if so how did you work through through that well because you're going to direct them now in a in a story and you're not doing it for a studio. You're doing doing independently on a location so there are other pressures involved as well. Yeah I mean I mean the the intimidation really came from my life father. I mean just as a kid growing up if if you were summoned you would literally shake in your in your boots and and then everything was okay but that was that was that sort of moment of extreme fear and and these guys that were working on the films that I was making whilst my father was alive had such great respect for my father and and and they were keen on on helping me out so I never really felt any any any power play but wonderful yeah it is. I directed my father. in a in a an hour long film called Mr Corbett's Ghost that I made for English television and he played the collective soul's typecast as and and we we started the I think it was one of the first days of filming roaming and my father got her line..
"huston" Discussed on WTF with Marc Maron Podcast
"I can look at from a direct from a from directing point of view right and I was ca- it's a little bit of experiment. The film also I was interested then in creating a situation emotional thread that could lead me into live news footage without having to superimpose superimpose my character into the rising but actually create create a situation where we didn't feel will that we were cutting away right who news report but I mean when that guy came out and made the announcement yes. I worked really good. Yeah the nurses arriving the ambulances. Yes yeah that's all real footage. You know it's great because I can even look like the same room that you were example most yeah yeah that's by design. Oh yeah yeah no that was great. Yeah I I in also and the sort of relationship with their line in there that the actress Ceuta Chowdhury Yeah Yeah who I hadn't seen in a while and made this a couple of years old yes right yes. He's took awhile took align its way it did but that line where where she says. I believe it was her where where she says you know he was in love and he wanted more yeah. You know it's really kind of like there's something about the the poetry of the script. That's pretty you you know kind of like at every juncture. You know you sort of feel it sort of her outreach to your character to frame. This is something that you know. Wasn't your our fault number one and number two you know. There's no way to explain it. There's no one to blame after a certain point. How do you let that go because he's he's guilt ridden because he he bought the ticket yeah. CETERA and then the dynamic with the girl with the girlfriend whose only you know who only knew him for three weeks very profound as well because that she's GonNa Carry. Sorry that weight on a different level. Yes yes I know and I don't know whether I have discussed this with with with the writer Simon. I'm an a couple of times but when she returns back in the story after years of past the your sure I'm not sure whether whether he's imagining that or yeah well. That's one of those things where it's actually in a joke. I'm doing on stage you know because I'm a comic where I talk about about the difference between you know these big huge marvel movies but like they're pushing us all to we have to Dr twenty-five thirty miles to you know to see grownup movies in a in a in a theater situation where we can all have the experience together and walk out confused by the ending as one group of people and that's you know what happened to those days did. He died while she what happened. I don't know what happened. Why didn't they tell us. I think the director wants us to have this conversation. It was so one of those movies for me where no poetic attic ending but there but also that was it like you know I it's it's to create some did he. Did you not imagine what is it real wasn't yes and and does he. Is he looking. I I hate the word closure but is he looking for some sort of peace within himself by imagining her and releasing her back to the love affair that she was having with his son. Yes yeah yeah in. Does he 'cause. They're you know that shot of you at the end does not comforting. No the film is not a company film. It is not a Friday night popcorn movie. It is absolutely antithesis so that I'm really trying to like for myself. I assess this kind of stuff and and put it into because you know I'm like I think I'm about your age. I'm fifty fifty six. You know when you start to think about like what am I taking in. Why am I taking it in. What is important. What is art? What is an art you know what and when I when I saw how that your movie started. I was like all right well. This is what we're GONNA do here. This is young and this is something I'm going to have to sit with and I'm going to have to allow and I don't eat them because in terms of the narrative the story. It's really a a a poetry movie because you know the the story. Obviously you don't really think you're gonNA find the photograph and then I it's just a it's a series of revelations that AH deepen the characters you know grief yeah for the viewer but I I really thought that through that and the way that you shot it you know the way that you shot their romance the kids romance and and your relationship with with that with the woman who walked works across from you and even your old friend these become very he loaded and the there is sort of small bits of relief and bits of connection that we all can have around the emotional processes guys going through and that that that is what it should be. You know that is what the feelings should be. It doesn't have to be about like well. How's The story in there. You know it's that is the poetry of film. If if you let it happen yeah and it's it's the reflective nature of it. I believe film. Oh yes yeah the I mean we thought we were talking earlier about about my father in Ireland and he'd get the the projector out in those big the Pov about about the film ripping or not and then we'd project these films on the wall and my grandfather who I never met wasn't treasure of the Sierra Madre and he was is he was a gold perspective or any and that's who I thought he was. I thought my father was no so film kind of lies and and but also tells truths at the same time and what I thought was interesting was was this drive to the airport driving my son to the airport and it's it's a really quite a banal conversation. We're not saying anything that carries any great. That's where it starts the movie yeah in a way it's it's the spine of the film but then as we are informed as the audience is informed. we see this conversation a different way and and and I I find that I find it interesting. How how we find more symbolism or we are more concentrated or intrigued by a conversation when we are informed what will happen how many features view directly of three third one yeah? I started with with a with a small one hour film fresh. OUTTA film school after I drink to the title sequence called Mr Corbett's ghost and my father was in it and get it online I probably and he plays a collector actor of souls of typecasting yeah and and I have Paul Scofield in it and and and had Burgess Meredith and one and then I moved on to to Mr North where warmer call Robert Mitchum Harridan Stanton David Warner Mary Stuart masterson Virginia Madsen a great great cast and then I made a film called maddening with Burt Reynolds and Angie Dickinson and then I made another film called becoming Klett about clefts with classmate awesome brand our and at that point I lost my I lost my father who was by my friend my my collaborate you and and and then I found myself in rather season Louis state in Los Angeles Emmanuel on my own man and without years we're going by I was I was a lots of meetings phone calls and trying to get stuff going but you were acting. No I wasn't I was I I was in a in a complete funky sort of flat lining and and I couldn't I couldn't get anything off the ground and and a waiting for this is like attornal green light so the plan was directing plows to read write and then fellow directors friends right because the kyw their kindness Ryan Healy started casting means small parts right and then the parts got bigger and suddenly I realized wow I should take this isometric Tuxedos. I mean my my my the reason I said yes was because I was interested because most of my most of my film experience I was on my father's film sets so I I was I was interested in experiencing how other people worked and I work with Mike Figgis and with Bernard rose who were more experimental in their approach and kind of which one time code. Oh yeah that's our quadrant ran and we were writing the script and music sheet that was yeah and you did do but you knew figures he puts you in leaving. Las Vegas. I guess I was number number two and that was the first like that was that was a he was thrown. You'll lifelines yes. He's like Danny's in trouble. Yeah we gotta that is somebody forgot throwing. You can't keep him keep his health insurance and then you know and then Bernard Rosen is an eye he just I worked with them on a on a on on version of Anna Karenina and and he and he said he was having trouble with a ah cut on the film and and we were both in a in a in a very depressed state moaning groaning about the film business right and his girlfriend at the time said you guys are really boring why you just go out and make a film yeah. We're like no you don't understand is far more complicated. Take that you can't just go out and make a film. She's like why have and she was a documentary film here and so we tried this new camera this Sony digital camera that Sony lintas correct no earlier and they and they they used as a testing a trial yeah and we shot chop this film in our backyard basically and it's called Ivan sexy based on their death of even illitch here and and it was a bit of a sort of poison letter to Hollywood it but basically we we stayed true tall store yeah but as best as best we could actually quite a faithful adaptation and and it it became a success it got independent film spirit nominations yeah and and it sort of it sort of propelled me as as an actor next thing. I knew I was working with Scorsese. Nicole Kidman physical birth and I was like wow I gotta take this seriously right not that I wasn't but I mean this. This is actually actually happening but he had you had any training. At all none whatsoever life life was my training and story story. That's what it's all about. I consider myself a storyteller sure of course yeah no. No I know I I talked to more actors than I used to you know and because I've been doing get a bit myself but many of them come down to the story there honoring a store and other people get caught up in the nuance of acting acting in terms of tools they use or what have you but you just show up and try to show but yes yes. It's it's so basically from that point on I was I was an actor and what I love about..
"huston" Discussed on WTF with Marc Maron Podcast
"It was it was almost a moment of horror for me right but he handed over Gabrielle Figueroa was wonderful cinematography yeah and I shot I shopped the sequence using a camera that moved around the dolls to try to create some movement and he was delighted and that was my first. I that was it. That was like hooked. You like just be well. I mean policing. Your Dad's obviously great thing he he he dumped this thing on you like you hidden. You couldn't say no and showed up and you. You nailed it. I I like. I like to think I did but I did. I did come out of film school here so it was it was kind of my my secret. I'm bishen yet. You just didn't know how it was. GonNa unfold where the confidence was gonna come from yeah and then and then he he produced the how long before they you did The you know the first feature the first feature I did with with with him was based the Thornton Wilder and you directed that right directed that call Mr no right and I had a wonderful cast big cast. I remember Anthony Anthony Edwards Yeah Yeah and again my my father. I mean we were like two Hustler's. Yeah I remember presenting presenting the script to to Lauren Bacall and there was a long flight of stairs. Did you write the script No heeded your dad yeah. He didn't Janet Roach. Who's was actually also wrote. The prince's on with him was that was he intending was one of the things that he was intending to direct or how did that like no I gave it I gave gave him the idea instead all right. I'm going to write this and you're going to direct US right interesting and so yeah so so we we we got this great cast together and and Yeah Lauren Lauren Bacall I was literally standing on top of a flight of steps outside the Westwood Marquee. He and I carried his oxygen tank up the steps the emphysema up two steps towards Lauren Bacall yeah and I turned around and winked at me no way she's going to refuse this uh-huh and sadly while we were making the film and he he called me he was meant to act in it yeah and he called me Danny. If I were to fall ill is is it a cafe Robert Mitchum to stand by just in case wall okay. I'm sure you're going to be fine but but yeah sure of course and then he did become ill and checked into the hospital in Newport Rhode Island and why you were shooting while we're shooting and and Robert Mitchum arrived came to the to the hospital. They spoke and Mitchum said. I'm sorry about the about the circumstances but I'm I'm I'm here yeah and when Mitchum left the Rome my father lowered his oxygen tank looked at me and said biggest hoax I ever pulled you know he he considered Mitchum one of the greatest actors and couldn't believe that that Betty got him but this was also a show of bravado and and and show a show of support and he was such a gentle man in that regard. Did he get well or was that he got weld for short time and so like what sort of fascinates me about Not You know the choice in like something like even like Mr North and then again with the new movie which I watched the last photograph it you know and even some of the movies your father made that were is that these stories are very few are very specific. They're they're not mainstream stories. He's necessarily their stories like I have this big rant going on you know actively in public about the limitations of you know mainstream cinema because of the the bullying element of you know comic book movies and you know what independent film means work and go and I just I I realized that some of this stuff like your dad and even like I think Mr North Okay right because you know you had good actors absolutely but then as you move forward like watching the last photograph Raff powerful movie very moving you know it's beautiful look at it. It's it's challenging a lot of ways but it's not like a story. Sorry that you just don't these type of movies are. They're hard to to see any more like in movie theaters. It's not true it's true but I mean I thought it was an amazing movie and and I'm glad I watched it before you came but like even with something like Mr North e you know and then something like this this this this thing the the last photograph which he wrote and directed and acted. How do you like you know. How do you decide to commit to that story. The in you know what I mean. It's sort of like it. It always baffles me. When I talked to directors were were they have this thing and it's sort of like because it's going to take years and you got to walk in. I mean obviously you're are acting and doing other things. But what was it that that sort of what was it about that story. Let's talk about the West though as sort of grab the newest movie yeah MM-HMM I. I know exactly what you're saying the way it's. It's you know he again. My father was just spectacular the way he'd be able to make a wise blood and fat city to fats Eddie and under the volcano but in between those three three right he got an anti so he really knew how to play giving want to them and and right right and keeping a couple for himself in keeping himself interested in new material yeah figure out new ways to make films and that the last movie what the dead yes spectacular but but also able to throw out you know. Anne escaped victory the Dino diller enters the Bible. He was also able so he he was he was really able to play that right right and so with the last photograph. It wasn't idea yeah that a friend of Mine Simon Astaire gave me as as a as a gift really is yeah beautifully written screenplay and and with that what was his screenplay semester yeah and and and and I I saw it as an opportunity not to to play get back in the saddle yeah and and play with different mediums not necessarily for stylistic L. Listrik reasons but for reasons of necessity and so I I used cannon still camera to shoot shoot London and Drink Christmas I then used with film no digital's digital sixteen millimeter for the scenes with the kids in the park. I use probably about six or different types of equipment are was that on film the six hours yeah now of course the technology is so advanced that you can make anything look like anything but I liked the idea of of actually holding the equipment that was that was older and it forcing me to see things possibly slightly differently and your character has that yet element to him too. He's stuck in the past a bit that's right in grief but also it seems in his shop as well yeah exactly and and and the different and the different formats also also allowed me just to not have things like place cards or dates for them and hopefully emotionally the film is at times possibly little languid. I could keep the emotion stretched emotion without giving you more information on the effective because you know there's a good chunk of the movie where you don't really we know what happened exactly. There's there's pieces given to you kind of but it's really it's really about the poetry of grief right right and the maintaining of of of that in moving through it yeah and and the sky bookshop he's equipment marginally usually come may probably unpleasant kind of guy and this photograph is stolen and and he he spirals he he goes into complete panic and and then while he's searching for this photograph yeah You the film becomes comes to sort of a tapestry a collage of memory the that lead one to sort of fateful night which December over twenty seconds nine hundred eight when Flight Panam WanNa won a exploded over Lockerbie right. Yeah and it's like it's still thing it's sort of like like there there. I just had a conversation with somebody else about human beings and about how we avoid the realities of death e you know we do you in terms of that conversation was about how old people don't l. Elderly people own dine in homes anymore. They everything everything's geared towards. You know not paying attention now. So when you see you know a man this character he played kind of like not being able to let go and having death hoisted upon him you know in such dramatic and public and shocking way it it was it was surprising for me. It was just it was very sort of emotionally satisfying and it sadness because you really play it all the way through. I me not acting that I mean that must have been somewhat difficult. Was it for you yes and also directed at the same time. That was a little schizophrenic. Yeah the yeah you you're talking about the the more mass shootings that we see me you see on on on the news channels these photographs that come up and each one representing accenting individual story right and that's what I found interesting about the concept that sign minister brought to me and you from a directing point of view. I knew that me Danny would be available as as an actor right and I could shoot shoot the easy cash could suit at different moments for different times so I could shoot London in in the winter in London in the summer and I could. I knew that I had that I had me a so. That's one of the reasons I cast myself right. The probably primary reason I can't in your scheduling on the phones I hey man can you I didn't have to do that. I was and and but it was it's he's a hard character to to take home because the state date of he's kind of like a post trust the atmosphere and the the the grieving just as such that you that the it's it's hard to shed and one's bombarded with new photographs all the time right so but it just became something that I was. I was very aware of and now that I talk about it. It's something that's I can conjure back. we've we've all we've all we've all lost friends and family and Cetera we all have we all have that last photograph and so it's it's it's it's a hard thing to continue performed performing right but from a directing point of view it was exhilarating could use these different formats. I could dance around. I could shoot stuff in London. Go drive up to Scotland's shooting Scotland and it has an insane scene where he's just in charge but I could play play..

He's been in a lot of movies also on succession the season that show I love that show by the way Oh yeah N- started breaking bad again okay up to speed everyone's here this movie. The last photograph is touching dark move. It's not I don't know if it's dark. It's just heavy emotionally but it's poetic. It's one of those movies that grownups like me enjoy seeing it's exactly we the it is a beautiful deep moving sad independent film but that movie the last photograph if is is now in theaters and on demand and this is me talking to these star and director of that movie. Danny Houston UH Mayes Rickety old house in the Hollywood hills that certainly has a life of its own. She'd been there a long time. Yeah probably about fifteen years yeah. That's a whole different life up there. It seems I mean that's the life that people think of when they think of Hollywood I'm literally under the Hollywood sign. I can't see it but if you're looking at me I can extend my arms wide the opening hold him and hold the back of by chance it can so if somebody's looking at you in front of your house exact I get it well. That's nice so fifteen years. Where were you before that New York. No I was a near Laurel Canyon near Wonderland. Oh Yeah Wonderland Wonderland the street the horrible Yeah Slaughter Street hip. It's weird. That's the point of reference and sort of like I'm I'm up by the White House. You didn't mention the charming a school that's how he was known for. Did you watch yes you do see once upon a time in Hollywood. I loved it. He did right God. I loved him because you grew up in some of that right. I mean I in a way in a way I really I I grew up in Ireland and Lucky lucky pass cheers and and Italy and then I went to school in England so I I came to Hollywood late my father you know he lived in in Ireland and then later in Mexico but yeah but la was always sort of stopping point the Mexico period. It's so weird that the generation of of Your Dad's those guys they just went to Mexico. I don't you know Peckinpah. GonNa go do they. Had this romantic I am sorry that's what I always associate the family the Houston family with this kind of strange adventuring thing international well. I mean I gr- growing up. I wasn't well. I guess I was clear clear that he was that he was director but he'd come from far away countries bearing gifts and it was like a pirate coming to visit the house and with Tall Tales and yeah swatch buckling kind of Guy and Ireland he he left a sadly after about four or five marriages. I guess we'd where do you fall in house it like because I had your half sister. She's your half sister right Anjelica here. Yeah your mother was which wife my mother was sh. She wasn't a white how a up my mother was inbetween wife number four and five or either between five and six and and but you had a relationship with everybody. Oh yes I know my father and my mother were tremendous together and and ver- very close but yes there was there was a lot going on always but now white things have settled down but like when you started like where'd you grow like you were in. Italy like like right in Rome. I grew up in Rome because my father I was making a film based on a rather well known book called the Bible Though Yeah right and and it was it was a long pre production shen and post production the whole thing took about three or four years and so I I happen to be born there i. I like to say that I was conceived. If we're using his films as a measuring stick I was conceived during Freud born during the Bible and t- On night of the Iguana and so I I spent some time on on on the set of the Bible and I I remember watching the first cut and you know once fathers I is is God probably for forever his his son and daughter but in this particular case the film starts and here in the beginning my father during the voice over for God and then the next thing I knew he was noah animals following them into into into New York right and this this was just fantastic for me and then and then my mother was also in it plays Hagar and she's in in the desert he said Noah Abraham Abraham and and she's in the desert a dying dying of thirst and suddenly this kid appears who's our son and he's not me right at that point. I got very confused and I've had that problem really all my life trying to differentiate fiction mm from reality. It's hard right. It is like I interviewed. There's a guy who's the guy that wrote the big book on your family. Larry Global grow. I interviewed him a while back he he he's the big interview guy and I remember I set out to interview the interviewer and it went on a a long time and I'm not sure what I was looking for. I know that I had like he came back again. To what was your did you like that book yes. Yes I think we we we. We all liked it. At times. Dove the possibly a little too deeply into with interviews with others I felt but my favorite book biography was a book called an Open Book uh-huh that my father wrote and so wonderful collection of stories about the family or short stories. It's a collection of stories from his his life and they're just there's just marvelous and and we used to kid around saying it's anything but an open book. It doesn't reveal the sort of things that Larry rebel grow well yeah I I I didn't I didn't dent it. was you know it's a big book and I will eventually get it. You know it's it's great from from from you know you learn a lot about Walter. Huston grandfather's grandfather I remember him from the the devil and Daniel Webster Daniel Webster that's right and and you know he was born in Toronto and his struggles and it's it's. It's it's an interesting book from sort of from my point of view piece of family history sure well yeah. I'd say it sort of fills in the gaps I would imagine for you. If someone else's doing the research I did that. I did that show finding your roots. You know it's a genetic thing and then they do the research on it and and it was it was interesting but you had a guy thorough research and talk to everybody involved in incorporated into the history of show business. That's a nice thing to have yeah as a point reference. It is even if he did dig up some bad shoot. Sometimes you got bad shit there. Yeah it's better than than now it. CR- create creates a dramatic read so white. When did you realize it. Show business was the thing I I felt somewhat assumed you know we just mentioned Walter my Father Angelica. Yeah my cool cool sister and jellicoe yeah and how much older she about ten years okay so she was in. It and you're like whoa she was. I mean as a kid you know she was. She's still is incredibly cool. Oh but she she she was friends with like the rolling stone and Jack Nicholson and so this was incredibly the exciting here but yeah my nephew Jack Houston. It's kind of like the family business so I mean I resisted for a while. I I like to paint and and I sometimes saw my father struggle with the whole circus act the ass surround filmmaking right and and and the money involved and it I could see that it it caused them trouble from time to time even though he knew how to play the game yes so beautifully I mean he was just a poker player really yeah yeah he bluffing just just like in what situations where was the what was the education was. I'll I'll give you an example. I remember when he was making his honor with with Angelica and Jack. Actually he a guy from ABC ABC came up and said Mr Houston's and crab why you're using such a low amount of of of footage a film you're saving so so much in in in the budget by doing so and he said thank you very much. It's very kind of you and then and then when the gentlemen left left after the room follows idiot you know he doesn't understand that the can't cut it any other way. Aso's control he he'd be cutting in the cameras so that so that so they didn't have any where to go any option yeah. That's that's. That's the kind of thing you know that sort of trickery and when you were coming up like so you started as a painter college I went to art school. I went to film school and and you're in in London Yum and then and then I had this moment when he was making a film called under the volcano. Oh Yeah Albert Albert Albert Finney based on Malcolm Lowry and he he was struggling with the title sequence. I I used to make him a a cocktail drinks depending what country he was in it would be a different rank. in Mexico it was cool libra a Roman coke and and I brought him a coke and he it upset him he said No. No no no the coke should only color the run the back of Puerto and we watched we watched Russia's around the volcano for under the volcano and and he was struggling with this with this title title sequence opposed to it was paper Mash as dolls but they didn't move so as long shots were very static right for the so he turned turnaround to me and said Danny any you've been to film school and stuff right directly to title sequence and and.

Missouri Senate race: Claire McCaskill, Josh Hawley race intensifies
"You know, this could go either direction, but like you mentioned, you know, Heller. Was considered the most vulnerable vulnerable vulnerable Republican in the Senate, and he still is by he's actually been able to get around some of the issues that were really big Thornton inside at the beginning of the campaign. One of the big issues that Jackie Rosen who is a political newcomer. She's a first term congresswoman she was recruited by Harry Reid to run for the house in two thousand sixteen. So she doesn't have a lot of experience, but she's been going after Heller really hard on healthcare. Heller was one of those senators who came out initially when Senate Republicans were debating repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act and said, you know, I have some concerns about this. But then he eventually voted for that motion to proceed voted for the skinny repeal of the Affordable Care Act to get rid of the individual mandate. So Jackie Rosenthal, going after Hans saying, you know, you flip flopped on the Affordable Care Act. She's been running these really memorable ads featuring this orange inflatable to man, the kind of thing you see outside the car repair shops as sort of I come here type deal all she's been running ads accusing him of being Senator spineless saying he'd been blowing with the wind. Of Washington, and that sort of been her biggest attack against him is that he's cave to Senate Republican leadership, and he came to President Donald Trump going against the best interests of Nevada. And what's interesting about that is Heller actually said that he was ninety nine percent opposed. Donald Trump is sixteen election. He's been slowly warming to the president over the last two years. It was really happy about tax reform campaigning on that issue. So Jackie Rosen's than sort of trying to keep her her head above water, and sort of just run a straightforward campaign and the biggest attack against hers. This fact that she's a political newcomer running ads against her saying she's accomplished zero in the house. She accomplished zero before she announced her bid for the Senate. So why do you want to elect her when you know, I've been around? He I I was in the house in two thousand six he's been around for twelve years. So they have that experience contrast as well. Interesting because Heller was was not pro Trump. In fact, looked like he was gonna face a a primary from a very very trope pro-trump candidate Danny hurricane. And apparently Donald Trump called often Danny Tarquini and told him to run for congress instead. And now Heller seems to be pretty Trumpian running running in this campaign. Exactly. Yeah. When when janey Tarquini and who's run several political offices in Nevada over the years has never won. But but frequently runs he got in that race, and he actually said that Heller sort of waffling on the Affordable Care Act to repeal and replace was one of his main reasons for getting in the race. He was he was unhappy that Heller wasn't out in front behind the president from the get-go. But then you had Heller changing as though ultimately being a little bit more supportive of the agenda and that president ended up getting behind Taylor. And actually recently called him one of his his his best friends in in congress rally out here in Las Vegas. Okay. I want to come back to this including the the importance of the of the Hispanic vote and. Role. It's gonna play in in Nevada. Nancy, let's come back to New Jersey. The Senate contest between the two bobs Menendez in Huston. His we mentioned for it's really gotten into nasty territory, even by New Jersey, even by New Jersey standards.
