"Very sound stage. You look to it and it. I mean there are aspects that clearly you know words Paris. They did best I think. Part of it was filmed in Canada. So they're doing this on a budget but the effects I mean we're pretty pretty dynamite. Right Yup for sure. Yeah I don't know couple of these people I mean. Ali Larter as clear rivers. She's been in some horror films as well and Devon saw water. Know what really happened to the guy is. He has personal problems actually okay. 'cause he was apparently quite a he's Vancouver. It's he was quite a teen heartthrob at the time and it was in like. I Dunno casper these kind of goofy movies but I don't know he seemed to disappear off the face of the earth for like a decade and a half. I think I'm calling Casper. Goofy a major Khaskhanov kidding. I've never seen it. Yeah and also the Ali Larter like she was in some other things like she was in house on Haunted Hill Hill. Okay and getting back to Dawson's Creek. Blues via is a famous girl in the whipped cream bikini which not. I don't know but here like she's just had she was she was the I. Guess One Who. You knew what survive. Because she's quite good with her hands and she's quite a well rounded character. Who's able to fend for herself? So she was quite actually quite dynamited this. So what did you learn? This is something that I noticed in my yours peaked up as soon as I start hearing the names of the characters and this is a conceit that remains from the scream post scream here on everything has to be so self referential and all the characters names all their last names. Some were named other ones. I found out from Ryan D. They all were directors and or actors. Yeah Hitchcock Murnau Browning you have Valerie News Luton and actually called her ballot at one point. Valued directed people right. You Have Browning Tod Browning freaks inspector strack Max Strap knots. Ratu aren't obviously Birkenau. You had dryer called current. Who's Karl Dryer? Recommend peer. You had hitchcock and even character named Cheney so and then the purpose of this was what exactly I don't know just to I guess peyot module but to be a little clever while in the post green era but really. It's not so much of what I learned. But who would have thought you know if you're seeing there in that cinema twenty years ago watching this movie. Who would've thought that a new franchise was being born? Something a not quite as akin to lay announced Friday thirteenth but something that would be so long lasting so popular so so much a part of the pop culture firm amid when it comes to horror the signs. Weren't there at the time. I don't know quite the opposite. Really if you look like James Wong the directors other work and I've I've only heard about it but I you've probably seen the black Christmas remake Well there's two buckets remakes at this point. Okay well the one Wong. Yep I've seen that one by the tone of your voice I'm going to guess it's not particularly outstanding. Not acknowledged standing the least bit. It's pretty yes. Who would have thought I mean? It's just it just became such a part of vernacular in a way that really beggars belief. It did box office of sixty mile an and just beyond what was ahead on. Dvd and God knows. What's even though? I mean like very lukewarm reviews. I mean we're singing. Its praises much more than they did at the time right so I don't know whether it's it's become a little bit more favorable in the eyes of you know with with the passage of time. I'm not sure well I think. I think it's the sequels that really can be attributed to the popularity of this franchise like I said Partout was infinitely bearing the Carbine kills. We're just way more elaborate way more clever the movie. God Gory or Tony Todd played a bigger role etc etc. They just got better. I believe in part you came out. It opened up with Almost what this phone grosses entire Ron. I think it opened up with like fifty million plus at the box office Third and then for the three D. boom was happening so the phone three D. In that like I said before the final film in this in this series really really really good really good. I'm absolutely shocked because I would have thought. Just like anything else. Diminishing Return he returns indeed stayed stayed about the same quality. Some are bearing the than others. But Yeah I guess Bad I mean. It didn't exactly start being the summit of achievement. So you can only really go up from there. Although I'm going to be a little kinder star rating they'll probably give it like a solid three and a quarter and a five because it was you know. P- pretty character driven. I mean curse. Smith is pretty great and as I said like you. Almost were more invested him as the villain for some reason. I just noticed that. I found his machiavellian character. Quite good. Because that's exactly how you would operate right while Devon saw is pretty milquetoast so yeah you could not sit in amasis. Yeah for sure I. I quite liked the you know a common cliche as I quite liked how they handled the via the train. Bearing down on the tracks. I mean God knows how many times that's been done in TV and cinema but it was kind of fun right. Yep Yep hall him out of the Fronta Front seat of the vehicle before thing with bearing down on it at its. It's always good for scare. I know it's cheap but you know when when executed well is not. It's about all I know why why don't have breaks. It just takes too long to stop right so you just. It has to be something really substantial. So I mean if it's a poor chow sheep that they're not going to do it but it's a school bus. They'll try their best right. Just parking it right there just to I mean yeah again. It's it's it brings into the question of your own mortality. And whether you know what you can do to be an actor on your own in your own story actor in that sense in terms of agency in what you would really do. But I think they could have built in a little more of that into the K. Can Add maybe a little more squabbling a little. Maybe instead of one against four five just had maybe teens going at one another or maybe not revealing. The order said to leave a little bit more. You know a little bit more suspense to the narrative. But it's hard to say okay fair enough so you gave it three and a quarter. You said Yeah. I thought it was a pretty fine effort. Upon your recommendation I'm going to plow through the rest of the franchise. The time permitted well. I'm going to get this one. Three stars okay. Same reasons date. I mean it was. It was a good. It was nascent. It was a good start to a franchise and luckily this franchise did not have diminishing returns so. This was one that got better and better as it went along. There may have been some dips and quality along five films. But by the time you get to the last film that one just went out like gangbusters and that's only sakes I don't want to spoil the ending but it was fantastic so three stars for me will hopefully our podcast now. Numbering three hundred plus aren't an issue of diminishing returns and listeners. Continued to enjoy the podcast and we got a lot of interesting stuff coming up this summer provided you know. We're not filled by this plague and We shall talk to you soon. Take Care.

So drop me a line to on the ledge podcast, gmaiLcom and tell me what topics you want to know about. I'm hoping to have an episode on pepperoni is coming up.

And you never know you might be hearing that idea brought to life on, on the ledge podcast before you know, it also shout out this week to mine. Listeners in Canada. I realized recently that there's another podcast in Canada called on the ledge, and I think it's politics, one, I was not too confusing for you, having to podcasts could on the ledge the other ones produced by CBC radio. And it's the scribe does a weekly CBC podcast, that makes Cisco and politics personal. I'm not sure what the vent diagram of people who listen to both podcasts called on the ledge is, but I would love to know if that applies to any of you, but I've noticed that not many of you have left a review on apple podcasts or indeed, anywhere else.

The Joseph flower show, what is it? Where is it? What is it about? Well, I guess it's probably one of the world's best known flower shows, partly because it's been around for a very, very long time over a hundred years and takes place in a very prestigious part of London in Chelsea the Chelsea hospital, which is home to lots of retired veterans. And this is really the show that brings together the criminal Krim of British horticulture to celebrate all things plants. The main show gardens outside. Well, there aren't many houseplants on display there. But go into the great Providian and the place is absolutely packed with amazing stands from nurseries from all around the UK, and here is really where the house plant aficionado can get your fix. I'd love to suggest to the RHS that they grouped together all of the indoor plants stands together. So that you can see them on wandering around if your house plot enthusiast, you can see everything together, I will suggest that to them because otherwise, you have to spend the whole time crossing this huge enormous white tent. That is the great pavilion, didn't how big it is. But it's it's flipping enormous. I can tell you looking for the relevant stands that you want to see and there are quite a few that all relevant for us. House plant lovers. I'm an is to speak to three nursery people for this episode. I we're going to start out with a chat with the lovely Andy of Andy's air plants. Now, if you listen closely to one lead you may have heard Andy mentioned before because James Wong and rob stock Vits two of our former guests are both fans and of four plants from him in the past.

"I mean, what's amazing about how the community has evolved over the past few years. Is that it's actually closer together and that very much? I mean even our chat five four we started. We know the same yoga community from Melbourne, and I go to places in Sweden. You're bored or nearby. And what's nice about it is that I would say that the yoga QVC is built on nice people who want to connect and you feel like you're. You're at home. The moment you step into a yoga anywhere in the world, and any and every city or country that has yoga studios, yoga classes, people kind of connecting around the practice, you will find that it brings the world of yoga together in a way that people feel like they belong to communities and our around, like minded people. There's places in the world that have a stronger communities by population, but it doesn't make them anymore advanced because as we all know that this yoga practice far more than what we do on Amiga, Matt. It's that sense of this practice is something that expands who we are as individuals as humans, and helps us really appreciate all that we have in our lives and all that we have. Yeah. And I think that made up being troubling idea. Love go to yoga studio wherever I am in the world, because it really does make you feel belong to that place. And I never really seen it that way. But it's really good to kind of remind mass on that. At some and often, I'll find it so inspiring to make some many people, the yoga community. So they old everyone is defend. It's not like one yoga yoga's, like whatever they do out side of that Mathis old different than it. That's what makes it so exciting. It's great. I mean literally in the in the last month loan. I mean we've probably clocked, the same amount of air miles. I, I've been in Australia in California. I've been in Amsterdam now back here in London. And while it's completely different cities, different cultures the yoga community is the same and I always say it's kind of all of my students, and all my friends, if you want to get a city start at your local yoga studio when you arrive from there, you'll meet the people that make the city. Yeah. Not that that's way that love Basting defend ten about you now in terms of them, how you spending troubling lachey into all these cities last few months is that teaching yoga or doing talks? Because I know that we did this same event. We say Judy talk where I was doing. Unfortunately missed you. Tell us a little bit about what how you spend your days. Yeah. I mean, I spend most my days now in what I call in the wellness community really advocating for community. I'm always a teacher. I and I've been teaching yoga these practices for the better part of last twelve years, been a part of the community that are less twenty years. And this was by nature of growing up in Los Angeles, where those communities flourished earlier, I'm very lucky to be invited into lots of different communities around the world where it's there to teach or is there to train people to become teachers to give talks around topics of, of yoga or meditation, or lifestyle wellness. And now huge mount with just pre which are communities expanding and showing how there's all these practices have huge relevancy in the real world in every day. And so, my schedule's always going to be different, but the converse. Is going to be very much the same and I really enjoyed the time that split between working with very dedicated students who are learning and people who are really diving deeper into these practices, but also in conversations communities where it's new or it's different or were shaking shaking the tree bit to, to see how we can actually bring people's attention. More into this these practices in the real world and show, how that supports, not just what they do. But you know how their lives maybe can be more supportive, or just ways that they can see how already see things in their lives that are already so mindful, whether it's to news, or dance or sports and curing moments and experiences at bring to bring that to life, aside from that, you know, mixed in with. Writing and working on a few new ideas and projects. It's really about very lucky in that I can live my life and explore all the different ideas, we have about bringing this world closer together, and helping people feel like they belong and did up fli. So I read somewhere that you have said that you always been focusing on someone else's plans visions, and that snippet as exciting species, being erode and that you now intend to chase your own goals to set your own creativity since I am so passionate about prioritizing, your life, you'll goals and dreams and true to believe that if you make time for your own life, you'll end up wasting your time on other people's goals syndromes, and I couldn't agree more with that. What are some of the goals that you focusing on now? And how do you enjoy making these priority in your life? When I was growing up. I was always a part of a system that said go to school. Get a good job be successful in that job. And that is what? Success is. And I think that's probably fairly common for, let's say most western parts of the world and success is driven by your ability to climb a ladder, right? Or work through that, that system. And I was I kind of coming growing up after graduating college. I very much did that I worked at all kinds of things and I worked through corporate ladder system, and it was one of those things, you're always, you know, working on someone else's bigger vision or you're bringing to life someone else's dream or you're working with this system that someone else created, and I remember reading back then or reading, or might have been like a an event or kind of a conversation with someone. But I remember hearing this guy talk, and he was saying, you know, he was he was talking about how he retired early and was successful in the work he did. And it was about the idea that, you You know. know, he believed that retire early wasn't about kind of retiring and doing nothing. Retiring early is the moment you can start working on things. You wanna work on pray in so ineffective? I remember back, then I think I might have been twenty or twenty two at the time and it was kind of, you know, wanna retire early return it when I'm thirty five or whatever it is. And it was I don't wanna stop working by any means. I wanna start I wanna have the freedom to work on the things that I'm passionate about that, that are meaningful to me things that I know I'm capable of. But you know how do you do that? And I was I was lucky in the sense where I work through a kind of a corporate system and had a good job, quote unquote. And all that type of things, but I was never doing the things I wanted to do. I was always working, and then going to teach yoga class, or working, and putting the other project on the side or working and going volunteering at a at a shelter, and all these things that were really more interesting than kind of marketing, someone's brand or helping putting on events, or at least of things and. It was about four or five years ago for me when it was that moment where it was. You know what? It's time to stop working for someone else and actually bring to life things that I'm passionate about an effect. I worked harder, which I'm sure you know, better than else that when you're working on your passions and things that are, are inspiring for you. You were twice, as hard you do all the things that no one else would do, because it's meaningful. And with that you take people on along that journey with you, and you inspire people not only to create, but also to take control of the things that are important for them and activate their inspirations. Since we started, just breathe about two or three years ago. It's very much about taking people on the journey to bring this project to life, not in a way where it's just my vision. But what things inspire them. And then go do that. You know, we work with, you know, everything from charitable projects where, you know, one of the team had an idea about how we actually can bring it to life by putting on an event that raises enough money that allows us to buy five hundred presents for the homeless, but then not just donate the money but then wrap the presence right the cards, go to the shelter, and it was that idea that allowed someone else's vision to go. How can we bring that life through this kind of project medium, and for me? You know, I always say is that, yeah, I can say had hard, I retired early, but because I'm able to work on the things that inspire me. Yeah. And I think that's important. And that's why because I really truly believe that if everyone did what they dream saw. You know, working or you know, sometimes sometimes it's hard to, to get to dream straightaway, but you can start doodle side. Exactly what you did really doing teaching you're on the side before you can awaken up. But I do believe that if you do what you love. And I think that's the only way if you wanna live your dream life and be passionate about it. And when you passionate about it, I, I. But I love it, and everything that I do not wise because something some icepick your role, sometimes, especially in the beginning before you have a team, you have to do some things that is not as fun. But the role if you really do something that you love. I think that he's doing life and a dream. But if it's a Pethick, it's always challenges and you things if you wanna do create your dream, life and do big dreams than, than it's, it's gonna be challenging, but that's kind of exciting. Yeah. Thank you. Can you tell us a bit about your approach to prioritizing, your time because I know that you trouble a lot do that as well. Which makes it challenging love for our listeners to understand how you prioritizing your time. And making sure that you do what is right for you. I by very simple belief that you must be one thing in time. Not everything all at once, and we may can fall into very easy habits and patterns gone about this do that thing to do in that book to write. And that of tap, and in that meeting, and then I gotta get on that plane, and then I gotta go to that class, and I gotta sit down two minutes eight and you have all these kind of, you know, it's like having twenty five tabs open on your browser and you affectively ever do anything when we take time to just do one thing at a time. All you're really doing is allowing your attention focused govement on, on on achieving one thing or finishing one thing. And when you put that presence in even the simplest thing, I'm going to brush my teeth. I'm not going to brush my teeth and checking Email, right? You actually get things on a lot more efficiently. Things actually are better because you don't have to go back and redo them you go. It's now time to sleep or now's actually time to have fun or now's actually time to sit. It down turn my phone off and do some work. You know, I I'm I'm very much advocate of, you know, when it's time to work do you work when it's not time, take time off when because of how much I travel now and how much teach, you know, there is a an easy easy way to fall into the multitude of tasks. And so, by allowing yourself very dedicated time to go. This is my time for this, and everything else, you know, if it's meant to be, it will be if it's more important than this, it will make it self now and, but the reality is most things that we put in the urgent and important category aren't really and so with things that you're passionate about do the things one at a time, and I find that actually, you know, the days are far more enjoyable. That's a court often comes up on this podcast, which is like you can do anything in life, but not everything it's time time. And I, I am very much like that because I think otherwise just if you have. Tim many things that just you do a lot of things. But nothing properly, so..

"So you can only imagine what competition must be like now for people even in in your kind of industry before said, gymnasts dancers, fitness athletes. They must see of a people online are not just the on the track or in the what you call it in the gym, absolutely. All this stuff online. Also, like, you have the element of I mean for athletes, this the element of like who says you're media is probably bigger who's getting the better kind of brand relationships shoes getting on TV. There's so many different. Oh, gosh. Say on the subject to social media me. I love watching your page. I personally get so much inspiration from it, and one of my favorite things that you have come up with which I think people are taking on bode is wake. And is it meditate before you caffeinate? Yes. I do say meditate before you caffeinate, and I was gonna say hydrate before he caffeine, go. I love. Thank you. The thing is is that every now, and then it's funny because you read some articles that are I'm sure you can comment on this. But there are two articles that say actually, you know, what caffeine and coffee doesn't dehydrate you, and you can take into account the liquid from the coffee that you drink. But for me a lot of people will have their coffees in the morning. Oh, yes. And you've just gone eight eight or nine hours with zero liquid. And so I always just say just highlight was her some wanna see showed with as one of the first things. I'm so glad that you haven't this home because it might clinic. I find a lot of clients just try and have a glass of water when you wake up anything because you cortisol levels already high when you wake. That's the stress hormone that. Makes you more Lutte in the morning. And then what people are doing is just kind of adding another layer of stress the minute. They wake up like the got out of bed. They roll out the go to these president machine if you're lucky enough to have one coffee straight away. So do you actually do this everyday you meditate, and then you start your day? So I will always do those things at some point in my day lately. Just because of the move I have been not meditating as much in the morning. Yes, I'll still meditate on a daily basis, but I've really noticed a difference to my -bility to focus without without having the meditation in there, but I do always hydrate and then Cascina. Good with that one. But in terms of meditation, and it's something that I've got to be hotly honest. I'm still finding it very difficult. You get into a set time aside. Why do you find not so much setting the times because I know that time is difficult. But why do you find meditation? This ask you off me find difficult about meditation. I find that the acceptance of herring of thoughts and actually not blocking them out. So I have to face what's in my head. And that's what I find most difficult shot that with my full. I'm so glad that you said this because actually it's such a huge misconception about meditation. Is that you need to stop thought. Oh, yeah. Yeah. That's what I realized when someone I think it was Michael James Wong as well. Right. He he mentioned this to me. And he said, but we have to learn to be at one of our thoughts because we're so distracted in society today. If I look at my phone or day the day with us by but the minute I take that away. That's how I used to be as a child about photos of your voices in your head. Yes. Yeah. Great. Does that take time for you to get used to? Well, I think it's important for us to get used to it. It's there and the problem is is that if we try to utilize things to distract ourselves. They turn into addiction. Yeah. And I do think that that's where addiction is a more extreme version of distraction of cool. And and depending on what you use to be addicted to to distract yourself with you know, we we focus on the ones that are super destructive alcohol drug because they because they're super destructive to our body. But where do you draw the line really with social media as being an addiction shopping nation to phones now? Absolutely. And why and I think it comes down to distracting ourselves from discomfort..

"Anyway, let's hear what my travelling companion, Mr James Wong thought the whole place James, it's always hard recording nurseries because they have lots of radio on in the background. I realizing this the more nurseries. I go into but I just wanted to give couple of minutes talking about what we've seen so far in this nursery, which is amazing. There's a lot of Feick is in here. There's Lauda fascinating philodendron 's that we've already seen what what struck you so far there's no sear- on which is. Unusual. What I think is great about. This is just will aid the total size of the pace and be you know, some of the sizes apart. So it's mainly FICO were standing in a greenhouse here with a canopy of FICO streets. Some of which are getting on your on for like twenty years old. And then beneath that kind of to take advantage of the kind of the Mt. Floorspace in this room load, the Philadelphia, you know, there's Kgalema 's each room, that's just thousands and thousands of puns, and that sound you can hear trolleys that are being zipped around all over the place just carrying loads and loads of from all different directions. I really wanna go on those trolleys child as well. Even though they wanna rail are totally crushes. Yeah. Exactly. What's fascinating to me is just despite the the in the UK, we're limited to maybe three four if we're lucky five different types of fighters here, we've seen gosh, we've seen at least ten different tons of fighters. Some which I've never even heard of. What does this mean why why is this in the UK? We're kind of limited as to what's vailable, and I'm sure also in the US to the that's probably the same. I definitely know in in. I dunno. I definitely know in Holland unbelievably innovative and creative on the all about what they call the novelties like the new politicians, and in the UK, those very very rarely make it over you know, when I to buy tropical punch for a lot of the guns. I designed to Chelsea basically five percent of what was made in Holland in terms of the variety was making it over huge volumes but of a tiny hunt full of species, and I wasn't wanted to ask y and they were like British people just conservative and they want to stay Ken, Ken tears. And and I said that copy the only reason they must compete with each other. They must be wanting to buy the things like no they've decided what the market wants. And that's whether providing another choice coming through. And what's happening? Now. We've go. Of what's happening now with this flowering of like, lots of small indie garden centers for house fun, particularly in east London is in those places. They're suddenly being much more open minded, a you. You're starting to see some of the real novelties here. I have seen in London, but you know, one in like a next to a hipster coffee shop in the deepest dock subsidies, London, all the big multiples will stick to the same like what five to ten, and that's it. Let's hope that we can engender some change and see things like that amazing philodendron. So you go that we just saw with the amazing neon. Green gold Lee Ramaz like you come to real punt yesterday. We saw the the Stingray which again, I've only ever seen. I think is north one has I think not to make the leaves like a Stingray. That's an incredible.

So as you can hear James, and I both got pretty excited about the plants in the Eden collection all link their website in the show notes. I've put in a request to see if the plant hunter Ovid Smith would like to come on the show and talk about what he does. We'll see if we get taken up on that offer, but Eaton collection, certainly looks like a company to be watching out for in your local garden centre going back to the doubles E plant in the wax. There were a lot of Bev roots on display at this show and not always encased in wax. Another company that we came across was life on lava they're selling house plants that are attached to a chunk of lava rock with the beverage kind of tumbling over the sides all place in a dish of water below. So the lava rock being very porous draws up the water to the plant. This was an interesting one I can kind of see. These are very attractive to somebody who wants a house plant looks bit different. Was that with James Wong who absolutely fell in love with these? And in fact has been experimenting with his own versions at home. And of course, he wanted the absolutely massive plant. I don't think they've made many of these just because they're so huge. They're rule. So a lot of plants being water cultured particularly things like clues years and Sansa very is. And doubles e plots lots of them being served up in glass jars with water in the bottoms Egan, see the roots. So that was oversleeping something that lots of grows at latched onto as a new growing trend. And if you remember back to the Chelsea flower show, we already talked about that with Ian Drummond with his IKEA's display their which had a lot of water coach and Savarese on display. I say stumbled across a raw than I streptococcus. I know I know always going on about streptococcus cooed, snow Alina except. To me.

So hopefully of find out something more bring that to you in a future podcast and a final trend to mention was the fact that the plots of the pastor most definitely coming Bank in there hordes, we already know this and severe is back in, of course, monster, but there were a few of those that for awhile have been living in the doldrums that I'll definitely back in fashion. One of the main ones was policies or the radio plant that the dinner plate radio policies both for Yana on the Mingrelia policies.

Also, actually, it does makes good use of gently because like actually like in the actions. Fear. He kind of did half-and-half. Good guys. Bad guys a little bit right and doing both which kind of makes I don't think the rock could've done that. I can't imagine the rock because of bad guy. No bad. He's also got a body for sorts sandals. Why wouldn't you totally? Yeah. I think what makes us movie really watchable. I think I'm repeating Steve from second ago. But like the martial arts. Sequences are good. I don't give shit that. We're aping the matrix time stuff. It's totally fine. I think bulletins fucking cool. I don't care everyone's done it since exactly thirty seven movie was only like two years after the matrix was still rip off fresh. I guess that's probably the problem because I didn't see it, right?

And I just thought to myself Al maybe wanna be an actor as much as anybody as much as anybody, but she was the one that maybe one fact he was one of them. You know, dog days serpico was one of my favorites, but Brando too. But Brando of course, gets into that zone where he doesn't care. You know, he's a prodigy and he puts all the pieces together when he's twenty four years old brand new streetcar on Broadway, but it was twenty four. I did it when I was thirty four, he I never. You never call me up to o'clock in the morning. And. I am not going to imitation, but he wanted me do a film, a native Americans. And never heard from that. And then I found later you would call people late, but somebody got my number and I believe it was him I, but my favorite line, he said to me, I sit in his house and I'm terrified at them. I'm terrified. Terrified. I meet people who are my peers, you know, and my generation of actors. I admire some of them incredibly, but it's different when you make Kirk Douglas or Gregory pack. Some of these guys I met. I was like, I literally pissed my pants when Gregory Peck and almost literally. And now never forget have been Brando's house.

I have spent with them now. So in waterfront, what are the other things I love about this film is that is that you know Kazan having directed in the theater. He knew that you had to set the table with every detail in terms of the acting and the performances that there was one weak link in the chain. I'm talking about Fred Gwynne. Hermens later went onto Herman Munster with a small role. Lee-jay Cobb and one of his greatest roles. One of the great, great, great actors, history, lee-jay cop, Steiger. Great, great. Actor, Imerese Saint Joe. I Marie Saint. Of course. I mean, the acting is superlative from one end to the other in that cast, it's it's mind blowing and two ton. Tony glencoe was bud that got all those expulsed boxers in the film because he knew them. Yeah. I mean, just the acting is breathtaking, but also when I, what I love is that. Also what I love is it so nothing on the screen really in terms of set design in terms of costume, it's literally is the closest I've ever seen to a motion picture that behaves like radio. We only focus on the ideas. You're not throwing them by a lot of possess and a lot of shots, and a lot of it's so straight ahead and so honest, you was a filmmaker. When you first saw the film, what did you think of it as a movie, how you put together a movie? I loved it and I gotta give love the Leonard Bernstein score. Amazing.
