"Gone too far. So i'm going to speak a bit about harry chapin now we did do cats in the cradle and our first run. So i'm not gonna talk much about harry cheapen you know. I'm not going to get to deepen into cheapen. But i'll give a overview. He's obviously you know one of the most well known singer songwriters of our time. I have to say the more. I went through this. I told dan this. I think before michael was on the call but the the more i went through this i literally in researching. This started crying because he seemed like such a an incredible human being. He was not only an incredible singer songwriter but at incredible activist and philanthropist. That the more you read about him the more you just know what's been lost Let's talk about them a little bit. So harry chapin so. He was born in nineteen forty two grew up around music and film. His father was. Jim chapin who's percussionist. And after his parents divorced his mother married. Henry hart who was an editor for films in review and he cheated actually started out in the film industry and he worked in documentary filmmaking and he even because to talk about dreams unfulfilled dan. Ms film legendary champions was nominated for an academy award in nineteen sixty eight though. He's doing great. Why talking about unfulfilled dreams twenty six. And he's gotta be award nomination for crying out loud Harry obviously took a long time for him to hit. That's a lie. The kidding he his value was known from the start. He started playing clubs in new york city in nineteen seventy one and by nineteen seventy two. There was a bidding war on. Who was who. He's going to have a contract for between clive davis columbia and jack holes. Minute electra. and electra one. No come to the point. Where i think jack hausman said something where he stood outside his door at six in the morning and said i'm not leaving here until we have a contract on top of that. I think that's a quote from the godfather right. all combined. welcome by his debut album was heads and tails. You wanna guess how. Tales is spelled with a t. t. a. l. e. s. of is. Come on nice. It's like sole provider. Does right come on. He does of story songs. So yea if i mean harry chapin knows how to write a story. That's for sure It was a great success. It sold over a million copies it. Obviously you know this song. Taxi was huge and apparently this taxi song was so huge that a lot of memorabilia for harry. Chapin is taxi themed or checker taxi. So there's a lot of like stuff. Yeah of course so. This was on his debut album. It was on his debut album. He released albums the following two years. And then in nineteen seventy four It was verities and balderdash which was his biggest record. It's all like two point five million copies and had had on it. The number one classic hit in this like dice. Colonel cats in the cradle. oh nice. He's huge his biggest hit And he continued to be a prolific writer. He released albums every year until his death. I this i did not know. In seventy five he wrote and performed a broadway play called the night that made america famous and he earned two. Tony nominations a two drama desk. Nominations how does he write all this dreams. Unfulfilled stuff tony nominated. Maybe it's because he didn't win. Is that why i i also don't think that he won a grammy. Actually that he ever won a grammy one honoring grammy's like he won the he was in the grammy hall of fame and stuff. But i don't know He must have nominated for an oscar. Nominated for tony's so yeah and nominated for grammys. I mean no. That's why he's never won because they were like well. He can't ever fulfill a dream. We have to make sure that he doesn't actually win. Any that's right. He was up for best new artist and the person who won the same as the eagles and think alice burn some some other people but who was america is a bizarre year. Best of a for a best new artist but america is right great. America's wasn't that that's a that's a solid category right there. i'm saying but that year. I mean the eagles chief and in america alone and the other three were also big. Acts that i forget who was right now but it was incredible because i was like how harry chapin lose to. And the fact is vocal. Bet that's right. now he was. He was incredible. Like i said. He continued to be prolific writer. He released an album every year until his death. In nineteen eighty-one he's one of those successful and highest paid artists in the world at the time of his death and in addition to his music career he was an incredible activist and philanthropist. Bring attention to hunger poverty in america and Many of his concerts. I have his concerts. Were benefits organizations that he cared about Bruce springsteen said something in a concert. that's a basically Harry chapin told him. I do one for me. And one for the other guy He gave away so much of his money and and he was left with with little at his death Which gave rise to the harry cheapened foundation which supports arts and education community education and agricultural environmental programs. Unfortunately harry chapin died in a car accident on the long island expressway on july sixteenth. Nineteen eighty one. I i mean even reading this. I'm getting like choked up because the more you look into harry chapin the more you realize like how much he did not only for music but how much he did for society and like how much he could have continued to do because his ability to get people rallied and get people behind the causes that he cared about his really incredible and his legacy remains both in music and his activism. He's been inducted into the grammy's hall of fame received the congressional gold medal in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy or. I think an has an An cap humanitarian award named after him and in october. Twenty twenty the documentary. Harry chapin when in doubt do something was released so an incredible human being. He's thirty eight at the time of his death and just to think about what he could have done musically what he could have done You know for the world as a whole is a really incredible and and sad to think about but and did in his time in his short time is also really really really amazing. So that's harry. Chapin i'm going to go cry and curl up in a call Right well normally. I would end on a joke. But i think i was going to Wrap it up. I just want to say rachel. Because i didn't want to feel that i would like pushing you off the stage but i'm like i don't know what to say. That sucks. that sucks. Listen say is. I mean i would. I would sell to check out. Harry chapin foundation. They do a lot of incredible things and watch documentary and just see how many people really cared about this person and really Continue his legacy and his work. All right Let's take another quick break when we come back talk about the lesson. We.

"How to call it, their arguments they screaming at each other, there. Castigation of h. Was home Merrick. They would scream nearly other in the theater, the mercury, and I be great sports fan. I had a great time to. I'd take the paper and read because it was the kind of screaming near Lang, that sort of you didn't hear again or me was bad. But it was fruitful. And he never did it. Best work we ever did was with Jack Ausman because Jack Hausman was a man of the greatest take, and he did. He -nology had. He was unique. He was great. He should have been in the hall of fame. I don't know why that never happen, but I can never say enough about check-outs. Remarkable and the fact at the end that he had this careers night triumph. Yes. Well, he was a guest on a TV program that also was the host. Up at Alsan by way of teasing him, I guess, said to him, Jack, I, I didn't know your. I'm Jack said to him, you'll never asked me. Perfect. And then you while end up as a guest star in an episode of the paper? Chase, yes, indeed. No. Why did that happen? I don't know how that happened. It was. I'm curious, turn of events, the beginnings of which I don't remember what I'm. I'm glad that it's a wonderful little asterisk in your career. Yeah, the two of you got to work together one more time. Yeah, I love jackass Mun. He meant motor me that now must anyone I've ever known outside wild family? That's a big statement. Yeah. Now, the next big statement person we want to ask about is Alfred Hitchcock because this was in the very early forties you got cast. I mean you had done a couple of bit parts, I guess, but this is a sensually your first movie? Oh yes. Nineteen forty. Two. I came out here to do Sepetu. By the way. Recommended to hit tho the polit. By Jack council. Now, the interesting thing is. Both Jack Hausman. And hit. Well, under contract. To David l. shell snick. And. Hitch, went off on zone. Jaxkar bowl was producing shutt-, but hitch as houseman. If he knew of young actor who could play this saboteur. And Hausmann immediately recommended me. Identified that morning of going over to here. I think eight o'clock in the morning, just research. And. We had a conversation and hit it off, like Hamon aches. I just was perfect from Nord go. That you showed us a photo. In your office over there. It's you and hitch an. I've never seen him that young. I mean, you're a baby face as well, but I've never seen him that young and it's wild. You already looked connected. You already. You said you've just gotten back from filming saboteur. It's, it's incredible to think that that you were part of his. Is movie making that early. This country. He made wonderful pictures in England. Yeah, but then he came to rely on you. Then as with Joan Harrison, we did TV series. And when did he start looking to you. For advice at different as more than an actor. Yeah. Well, I tried to. And I used as I did Wellstone same, I'd have come sations of the set. While we're waiting for the shot. And just Chang. What I felt about a shot, whatever. And gradually the fellas. Would he. I didn't want to use the word help. It's not help an assistant to just be there. And. It happened on shatter where I play the shop. But what hitched liked was that I had all these opinions. Certainly about. Acting particular scenes. So. So he remembered that. And when Lou awesome.

"Aged anyway, her. So he's doing that great lear- speech that ends how shop an acceptance to it is Joe have a thankless child. Out of the corner of is I, he sees this actress acting reaction all over the place. And he stops and there's magnificent voice. He says. Quota name. Idea. I want you to know. Small book. So. With the galleons and replied, your question. That I, I started to clean up my speech so to speak and learn how to speak in. So I was able to play many classics. Well, it stood you in good stead all this time. Thank your length of now. Since we're in talking about the theater in the nineteen thirties, it brings us to the first of the titans. With whom you crossed paths. And I'm speaking of Orson Welles that will talk about John houseman, his partner in crime, but Leonard you of made the proper correction. Because also and did his best work with Jack Ausman. Yes, I know many people feel that. Yeah. What was your first impression of Orson. Well, at curious, it was contradictory. I, he was, you know, a big fat guy. I all this hullabaloo about him. And. I, I met him when I always Jack Hausman who brought me into the mercury. And they brought me into this office and this was awesome. Had we chatted immediately took a very competitive attitude towards each other. Because I thought I was one of the world's great actors and also knew he was. And the egos, if so, clashed immediately. But the class was subterranean. It was a feeling about each other and of. A sub-conscious relationship with each other of. Of fall out of word. Show. I thought, what the hell job. At Gioja. She's a chew bankas holiday. I'd like to play it. So I better be polite. And also was polite except he sensed. He sensed. That I had an immediate competitive feeling about him. I won't say dislike, but there was no like. It was just competitive. If you're so good, let's it. Uh-huh. Did this. What by the way was my Brooklyn bringing up, you know, we'd play Punchbowl then f you, you. What do you think this spurred you onto. To do your best and to to want to show him. Well. In this sense? Yes, put the question. Well, because that may be explains why I I did what I did with my career. And we got on. And actually when I left the Mark mercury. Also was thinking of doing a Henry the full. And I came back to visit on one of his productions to visit the mercury guys and also. And he said to me in make up on stage effort of owns. When are you coming back? Which I consider that a compliment and very nice. His behavior was better than mine. Now. John passes. He doesn't do Henry the fourth at that time and I go onto things with it. So. There was a tribute. Play. At the mercury theatre for auction. Towards? Well, he was. Eight done a few years of work. Tribute at the theater. I was invited back each night was devoted to another aspect of all since Korea. I was invited back to the classical theatre. The early days the mercury and so on. And others came later. Now what was all over everybody dispersed and said, good night to goodbye. All on the stage. I went up to say to him. Braced me a great bay, a hug. Lean down. And wished. But in my. You son of a bitch. That's the last travels. Wow. There are no dull stories about Orson now. No. Now he was not dull, no people of a certain age. No, John houseman. Ironically, not as a producer, not as an entrepreneur, not as the head of the Juilliard school of acting, but as an actor himself in the movie, the paper chase, the TV series that followed in those endless commercials for Smith Barney where he said, they earn money the old fashioned way they earn it. So he had a latter day fame that I don't think he ever anticipated, but many people agree with you that he was really the man who sort of enabled Orson to do what he did both in theater and on radio and and many people who haven't studied history, don't know that. This is true. Hey. Relationship with houseman was strawberry. Because. It was routed and such..
