Both had pieces on a big Jim Thompson and I learned from ready Neil Steinberg COLUMN. And I came to town just as Thompson was finishing. I think his last term as governor from that was taken, Um Anyone on to make gods of money, obviously one of the best law firms in the city, But, uh, Thompson seemed like a pretty pretty good guy in my in my mind kind of a solid six foot six sort of gubernatorial presence, and I learned from Neil Steinberg's column.

"And it's like this whole thing of like coffin to decay to now, you're in the afterworld and L race kingdom. I mean, that's like the last. Couple of chapters of the book. It's just amazing. The all of these descriptions of this place that he has the way that he he rips the riches away from these fugitives that come in and then their fate once they don't have any more money is one of the most grisly things that I have read in a long time to talk about L Ray, right? I mean, this is what this all comes down to and I will give tiny shout out here too. I believe it's dusk 'til dawn. Which at the very end of the escape from the vampire Mexican bar in the middle of nowhere. George Clooney's character does get away and somebody asked him where he's going, and he says she's going to L res L raises hell, and there's ways about it. Elrich? Raise is Jim Thompson's vision of hell honors and scented by juniper bushes, and a sweet sickly, pork, roasting. Snell. And it is it is simply extrordinary. I mean, this is the point at which Jim Thompson stops being a hard boiled crime writer and crosses over into a a really spiritual dimension, I suppose, although it's all still happening on this earth in the flesh. It is absolutely incredible. And it's for me the saying that somebody who introduced a couple of Jim Thompson novel reprints in the nineties, I guess called Jim Thompson's trap door where you get through. This this story, which is a high story or maybe a little bit of a mystery story or a little bit of thriller story, and you've come to the end of that story. And then you fall through Jim Thompson trap door which opens into hell on or. Yes. Just the medicine if they had the then a little taste of the end sends amazing. It sends look him. There's a game in his code sound hell that different endings. And if you pay for the game each time one day endings was you'd be you became stuck and aliens. I'm just imagining the second of Jenn Tokes type end there in L, raise kingdom, doc, and Carol along with all of these other people who have allegedly, you know, scored big and the way that L Ray has this whole thing set up you pay all of these taxes on your wealth. And it's basically this no-win situation of you always and paying L Ray. And then once you're done with your money, you go into other village in Dhaka's wandering around one day. Hindi finds this other village that's away from the kingdom as it were. And he ends up running across the sky. Who he was supposed to give money to the woman that he was staying with that put him in these underground caves, and then this shit pile literally she gives him some money, and he sees the skies ago. Yeah, I'm gonna get this guy money back. This guy's is six foot four former very very heavy large, man. And now he is nothing, but skin and bones because once you're done once Ray has sucked all the money out of you. He throws you in this village. And then basically the people that are there are expected to eat one another. That's where that seek sickly. Sweet pork smell comes from that. You're talking about Maitland is just that whole idea of these people have nothing left. The now ended up feasting on each other. And now doc knows that that is the fate. That is waiting for him. He goes back down into the kingdom and the have this event that occurs once a year. Here where it's this big gala ball or whatever..

"Although I have to say it is not as far from it as Thompsons novelist in concert novel is it's a smash your head against the pavement if you times, and then pour alcohol on it. Because that's how bad it is the right term was meant to be PF. Mcdonagh fish would he had the quirk that can about. I'd quirks to kites are just trying to think I heating how he would Matiu. And we have no idea the mentioned not appear, but Ghana that we ve interesting I measure, what ended up a little bit more like what's up, doc? But originally it was to be he was going to shit. What's up, doc? They in leave it, and then go and make the away and come back, and edit what's up, doc a name it the guy we but in. One brothers says no one have not. So that was changed and all the for pain. And I think we can thank God for that. Because much Meyer, Peter Bogdanovich, he has made many movies like the getaway not a movie that I can see Peter bugged on of doing anything interesting with I think that the core of that movie is so white hot and bitterly cold at the same time. But I I can't imagine him really making a movie from this material that would have in any way been true to the material wants McQueen got onto this. He was calling the shots. Again, was this powerful figure at the time. And correct me if I'm wrong here. But I think that he was the one who said, no, let's get Peckinpah on this because they just done junior Bonner together. The thing was up was a fluke Conde, and the thing wasn't a clean ups and has pop and so that they taken so these guys for hit. And the gammy was picking pas mega hit in terms of money for him on box office. And also Allie McGraw was coming off of love story right around this time. And that was I just watched the kid stays in the picture and just hearing about what a savior love story was for paramount. And it was again like these two white hot stars McGraw and McQueen being put into this one film was oh my God look out for this. And that that's true. I mean that was a powerhouse combination at the time that this movie was made. And yet one of the things that surprised me when I realized it yesterday, and then I watched most of it again this morning was that I was surprised by how soft it was for peck and pasta, given how unbelievably harsh the source material is, and I'm sure we're gonna talk about this more later, but the the cat away is an even rougher more pitiless. More unromantic story in the Jim Thompson version than it is in the pecking five version and nobody ever thinks tech and five and old softy? But he absolutely softened up this story in a really serious way. And one of the first ways that you see it is that in the novel, the betray betrayal. Not even being the appropriate word. Carol sleeping banyan is something. They talk about for the entire book. They talk the minute. The two of them get together until the whole thing comes to a close. And it's a bitter bitter thing between the in the book, it's not something that either of them can ignore an in particular. It's not something that doc can like go off the book sets up this stuff a lot differently because we're not we're not going to do flashbacks within the first few minutes of of a typical movie we're going to set this up, very linearity. And that's what they end up doing though Peckinpah to some. Interesting stuff. There's that sequence of doc and Carol swimming together, which seems to be a fantasy sequence. And then there are those cuts to his memories of Carol when he's imprison so it's almost like flashbacks inside of the prison seen, but not the same way that Thompson would would lay out his story. And do the way that he opens up the film. I are his book. I love the way that he opens up with doc already in that hotel and just being this real magnanimous forced to all of the people that work there real kind of salt of the earth person..

"Welcome to the projection booth. I'm your host, Mike white. Joining me once again is MS Maitland. Mcdonagh it is always a pleasure for me to be here. Also with us this week as Mr. Iran Carruthers, it's even fewer in sporting it and churlish this week. We are discussing the nineteen seventy two film from director Sam Peckinpah the getaway based on the novel by Jim Thompson and adapted by Walter hill. The film star Steve McQueen as doc McCoy and Allan McGraw as his wife. Carol two young lovers with nothing better to do than rob a Bank with the -plicitly Rudy Butler and the barely a character. Jack Dodson, let's just say that things don't go as well as they should now we're going to be getting into spoilers galore about this movie, and the nineteen Ninety-four remake and the Jim Thompson book along the way. So please be warned now Maitland. When was the first time you saw Pekka pas the getaway. And what did you think? I'm pretty sure. I saw the getaway in the eighties. I did not see it when it with a rigidly released at a little bit early for me. But I thought I believe at film school showing at Columbia University. Though, I was not yet at Columbia. I had friends who are older who were there and it was projected under not ideal conditions, but certainly better than any other that were available to me at that time. And it was a film that I found pretty breast taking in its cynicism. And yet, it unpacking PA likeness in many ways. I mean, I already my idea Peckinpah was the guy who did those incredible blood that and the getaway really is not a bloodbath. Literally, although it is certainly an emotional bloodbath on every level. So it was a little bit of a surprise to me. How about you Aaron I saw it and in five when they release the. DVD verson. Actively young and I was just going to part time because in a Basset t. Spree through Peyton Pau straw dogs. You name it an NSO. There's the air. We always love Steve McQueen because Britain bullish for the great escape every Christmas time, so when you McQueen onion from billets popular. And so the fall of Peckinpah and couldn't give our was like. It's always amazing. I actually saw this movie for this podcast. I heard about it for longtime for whatever reason, I guess it was because my family were big fans of all in the family and watch the originals when those were on the reruns for all those years after and my mom would always tell me about young Sally Struthers being in this movie. And just how different she was than Gloria stiff it's in all in the family, just what a a sex bomb. She was in this movie. And so I always say that tucked away in the back of my head. If like, oh, I should check that movie out some time. I can't say that I'm a huge Steve McQueen fan. Like I've seen bullet that I've seen the greatest scape. But it's like I haven't gone out of my way to see other movies that he's been in. So let's talk about him as a star. Because at this point when he was in this movie, he was. Was a huge star. And I imagine people know that SIV McQueen was a star. And what a big star. He was. But just maybe not the magnitude of what a powerhouse. He was at this time. But yeah, this was a first time viewing for me. I was somewhat familiar with the ninety four film, though, that was also first time view for me. And I kind of came into this one through really wanting to reacquaint myself or acquaint myself with the books of Jim Thompson and saying, hey, here's this movie that was made out of this. Jim Thompson book. Now, I have an excuse. Let's read the Jim Thompson and move into the movie that way, okay mic. I'm appropriate is still reeling. From the fact that you're discovered the getaway valley Struthers, that's pretty bad. Well, you have to admit she is pretty spectacular in this movie. She's. I was so happy to see Allah Terry in this movie as well as as Rudy because I had only really known him as being so the Turk in the godfather..

He did just to make sure everybody was awake pizza reference to the pizza store. What was someone the restaurants in town?

That's CoR that's been we're gonna make. Very stable. Yes. So now in fairness, we're gonna play Donald Trump here to this is Barack Obama today. And I think I think it's on like Donkey Kong the kids used to say. The president the former president denounced President Trump, but he denounced the Republican party. But I have to say this because sometimes we hear oh a plague on both your houses over the past. Few decades wasn't true. When Jim Edgar was governor here Eleanor. Jim Thompson was governor. There are a lot of Republican friends here in Illinois. But over the past few decades, the politics of division of resentment and paranoia has unfortunately found a home in the Republican party. And Jamaica was referenced several times it's interesting because it seems like he stepped into you know, he's going to be a prominent voice in the midterm fight. You listen to that speech today. What does Barack Obama think about Donald Trump's attacks on the press, it shouldn't be democratic or Republican.
