Hollywood Icon and Chicago Native Kim Novak On Her Relationship With Art

"That is the opening theme to the 1958. Hitchcock thriller Vertigo, starring Jimmy Stewart. And Kim Novak came out of what's known as Hollywood's golden age, but for many studio actors working at that time Things weren't always so golden. Kim Novak was one of Hollywood's top box office stars, which meant she faced a grueling work schedule. The studio system put huge pressure on her and she suffered abuse. Luckily, she had a coping mechanism. Hurt. Until one day. She left. Chemist now in her late eighties, And earlier this year, she put out a book of her paintings called Kim Novak, her art and life. I was so delighted. Get the chance to talk to Kim Novak from her home in Oregon. Kim, How are you? I'm five dogs. Thank you. I'm excited to talk to you today about art because people know you as a movie star, But I know art was your first love and you'd won scholarships to study fine art at the prestigious Chicago Art Institute. Wanted art give you growing up? Well, it gave me many things. But I would say mostly courage because I felt confident in my ability for one thing, but I felt confident. And being able to forge ahead with my own and trust my feelings and my instincts. And for me, it was always about feelings, because I I need to get that out of me. I don't like keeping in feelings locked in. I want them expressed. And every time I get a feeling a strong feeling, I'm at my easel. I've got Three easels going at one time, because sometimes I've got more feelings going on that one time I mean it For me. It has become such a wonderful experience, because no, I'm not in films.

"And welcome to Tech stuff. I'm your host, Jonathan Strickland. I'm an executive producer here at how stuff works. No love, all things Tech. And today we're gonna talk about a person who was very important in technology, although it was not acknowledged or really widely known for many decades and after her actual contribution, and this comes from Several listeners who have requested that I cover heavy Lamar. So from the 19 thirties until 1958 Hedwig Ava Keys Lor, better known in the United States as heavy Lamar appeared in feature films like Boom Town, Lady of the Tropics and Tortilla flat. She played Delilah in Samson and Delilah and the Cecil B de Mille epic film. She acted opposite people like Jimmy Stewart and Judy Garland and Siegfried Girl or Ziegfeld Girl. I should say not Siegfried. She was in several films and TV shows, but more importantly, to tech stuff. She made important contributions to technology that for decades Was completely unknown by the general public and on Lee relatively recently has been part of the general discussion, essentially since about 1990 or so in this episode. I'm going to talk a lot about Hey, Lamar's life, not just her work in technology, and I'm doing this because I think it's really important to get an understanding of what her world was like and what it must have been like to come up with. Fiendishly clever and useful idea that would go unacknowledged for decades. Her story is In many ways tragic but to understand that tragedy we really need to learn about her life and general so heavy. Lamar was born on November 9th 1913 in Vienna, Austria, to a well to do Jewish family. Her father was a banker and a technology enthusiast and as a child Lamar was known to be really curious and inquisitive and drawn to the sciences, particularly chemistry. She enjoyed studying and she enjoyed experimenting with stuff. At the age of five. She took apart a music box to see how it worked, and then meticulously reassembled it so that it would work again. Reportedly, she spent a lot of time talking with her father, a meal Keesler and an effort to learn how stuff works. Sounds like she would have really liked the website I wrote for She wanted know stuff about electricity. How streetcars worked how power plants work and when she grew into a teenager She also knows that people started treating her differently. She was a beautiful young woman, and she could not help but notice that she had a real effect on other people when she was in their presence, particularly among men, and she found she kind of liked having this sort of power and effect on people. At the age of 16. She started modeling for photographers, including doing so nude modeling. And in the 1990 interview, Lamar referred to herself as a long fall. Terry, you blue! Terrible child, in other words, as a French expression, and it typically means a child who speaks without any kind of filter. Someone who might just speak what they're thinking immediately without considering it's a fact and thus potentially embarrassing and adult nearby, For example, it happened to be personally when I was in a grocery store. And a mom and her little son are walking past me and the little son looks at me, then looks at his mom and says, Mommy, That man has no hair. Well, that's true. I'm bald, but I know that I'm familiar with it. It's not a shock to my system. I've been living that way for two decades, but the mother was horrified that her child would say something like that. In public in earshot of me. I thought it was funny because it was just an observation that didn't bother me at all. But that's sort of the kind of thing they mean. But the expression can also refer to someone in the creative arts like an actor or a dancer or an artist or photographer, someone who thinks outside the norm, who is more often guard and more daring and potentially more. Offensive. As a result, someone who goes against the standard and therefore it can end up stirring up trouble. She referred to herself in this context. 1933 When she was just 19 years old. She was cast in a Czech Austrian film called Ecstasy. This movie became infamous at the time. For one thing, Eddie Lamarr appears nude in the film in a couple of different scenes, and there was also a sex singing in that movie that was considered positively scandalous by the standards of the day. Lamar would earn for herself a reputation that would follow her throughout her life. Largely because of that movie unfairly, I would say, especially when you compare it to films today it was Nothing particularly racy by Ah, lot of today's R rated movie standards, but at the time it was considered absolutely scandalous. She also had to reconcile with her father, whom she loved dearly. In fact, she would later say in her life that no man she ever was attached to could measure up to her father. He was extremely upset by the film and the scandal and then sort of as a way to kind of Redeem herself In a sense, she went on to perform in a prestigious stage production. A very respectful stage production, and that kind of helped heal her reputation, at least for the time being. She also met and then married a wealthy arms manufacturer named Fritz Mandl, who was 14 years older than she was so she was 19. He was 33. According to interviews. Several historians have suggested that Lamar liked the thought. Of being an influential man's wife. She found that idea appealing, but she soon found Mandel to be controlling and domineering. He was also supplying weapons to Germany, which meant he was weaponizing the Nazi party. This was early in the history of the Nazi party in Germany, Hitler would not become pure until August. 2nd 1934 Mandel, though Jewish was seen as incredibly important for Germany's plans, And while Hitler probably never visited Mandel's a state personally because he would not want to be Captured on film as associating with someone who was Jewish. It is true that Mussolini was a houseguest of Mandel's. Fritz was reportedly a very jealous man constantly suspecting heavy Lamar S suspecting his wife of infidelity, and he tried to buy up all the prints of the film Ecstasy in order to suppress the movie. He didn't want other people seeing his wife nude on film. But really, that just gave the filmmakers more incentive to make more prince of the negative because he kept on buying them. So there was a ready made audience, even if it was just of one person. He spent more than a couple $100,000 buying up Prince of this movie, and they just kept printing up more. And so, finally, he kind of Gave up on that. The two remained married for four years. But by 1937 tensions were running high in Europe and in her household. Hitler had already begun his anti Semitic policies. By that time, though, Mandel was again sort of insulated and protected by his occupation as an armaments manufacturer. But head his father a meal was distraught by what was going on in the world and the stress was really getting to him. He actually would die of a heart attack that year and that devastated heady And he had decided that by this time she had to get away. She was scared. She was angry. She was disgusted by what was happening in Europe and Hitler's campaign against Jewish people. And so one evening, she decided to escape from Mandel's home and flee, and they're different accounts of how she managed this, including some in which she supposedly drugged a maid used some sleeping powder. Mixed in a drink and gave it to the maid, which made her fall unconscious. And then she ended up switching places with the maid dressing in the maid's outfit and then making her escape that night. Whatever method she used, she did flee to England. In England. She had the good fortune to run into Louis B. Mayer, the co founder of MGM Studios, Mayer was touring England looking for European talent who were fleeing the continent. So he was kind of taking advantage of a really bad situation and saying, Hey, if things are too hot here, you should come to America signed with me become an actor in my studio, and I'll give you a living. So he offered Lamar the princely sum of $125 per week if she would sign on to a studio now, quick word about this. From the 19 twenties. Until about the 19 sixties, movie studios had sort of a death grip on film stars and directors and movie theaters. Talent would sign contracts with a specific movie studio, and that would guarantee a certain number of films or pictures. Or that studio and they would be locked in. They could not make movies for competing studios unless there was an agreement between the two studios in some sort of exchange, so the studios also would own chains of theaters and they would have their own films shown in those theaters and not their competitors Films. There were some independent theater owners in the United States at that time. But the movie studios would also end up leveraging their power over those independent outlets as well. What they would do is something called a a block booking deal..

It's got emotional appeal and draw and draw that you are wanted here. Well, you know, I don't know. I just think it resonates for me on every level. As I pointed out, um, I picked seven cuts. We've done five. We've got two to go. The last one was prayer. We had a period where we talked about temptation. We talked about defending the the less fortunate. We talked about fathers and sons and then ambition. The two coming up life does make a difference. And what real richness is. How do you define being rich?

Somebody get that or what somebody got there. That was One other thing, and new had said this and I hadn't I'd never heard this one before.

But the snow you remember the scene. It's so famous scene iconic where Jimmy Stewart's running After the bridge. Incident and he's back and his mouth's bleed my mouth's Bladensburg after that, and he's running through the Bedford Falls downtown. Well, that was shot in California. I think the RKO lot and it was very, extremely hot. They filmed it in July, and it was probably 95 degrees. You know, and Jimmy Stewart's running through looking as though he's in a chilled environment. He's he's dying of sweat. And the snow for the first time. They used a new concoction because, apparently in movies prior The snow was cornflakes died white and it was so crunchy they'd have toe Muffle the sound somehow, so they invented a new technique involving soap flakes and sugar and so forth, and it looked pretty good. It really did. Still didn't help. That was 95 degrees. We'll take a quick break. Jordan Ricin for Dan Ray, You're listening tonight. Side night side with Dan Ray.

"Welcome back 10 48 here on WBZ with Jordan in for Dan and we're talking about and sharing. Thoughts and stories and memories of it's a wonderful life, little trivia and some audio clips from the film. Let's go to Craig in Ohio. Craig, Welcome and Happy New Year You're on WBZ. Happy New year. Well, I just want to say you know that last caller, you know, kind of tripped me up, but he brought up a point. You know the difference between the men and women of Hollywood now compared to them, You know, it just seemed like they were more blue collar. But Well there. Yeah, right Opinion. You know, they would They serve their country and they didn't deep of it, You know, And I'm a bad treatment, you know, and, uh You got to respect that we really do. You know, I'm a fan of hold Hollywood history, and I know that there's so many examples. Tyrone Power was one who served overseas s so many of the Hollywood pretty boys if you will. Um, Yeah, I know John Wayne was an exception. I think there was some kind of medical deferment or something. So he didn't actually serve, which is ironic because he was in all those war movies. But Yeah, that you know, John me, you know, with spare on this, Put her some, but the point I wanted to bring up The, uh you know the You know we're he's Jimmy Stewart says way. I need 24 hours then because no, I don't. You know, And I think 50% Americans been that way. One time or another. Where? You know you're in a workplace. You're going. No, This ain't right. No, I'm not going to go for it. Yeah, you know, uh, you know, and that's get back to the blue collar part And now you really have to respect that. You know that point. It shows, you know, I'm a man. I'm just stand up for what? I believe it. Well, I don't know if you heard Craig the earlier scene, too, that I played. I know, I know. You know the film when he stands up and says, defends the building and loan and defends his father for helping these people and he didn't do it because he was going to make a lot of money off of them. He did it because it was his living, and it was the right thing to do. So, yeah, I think that's That's evident in the film. I mean, that spirit is evident to the film, whether what is that the last caller brought up the difference between old Hollywood New Hollywood, you know. It's the time to change the times out here. Well, it's also the system. I mean, in those days, Hollywood stars were members of the studio's kind of under contract and part of their lives was dictated to them. They had to do certain things they had to make appearances. They had to do it. But I do think the character of certain people in those days You know was was exemplary. Gary Cooper, Uh, Jimmy Stewart. Have, uh they all they all you know, did it? I'm gonna look up stars who served and during World War two because it's a pretty impressive list. And, uh, four that along as we go along here anyway, uh, anything else on your mind, my friend. Now that's hip, but the Heinrich ALS who knew, you know? Hey, you imagine having him is only Dennis. If CPO Sharky right that the suit TV series it was based, I think on his own experiences. Yeah, he would have. He would have handled things very interestingly. Thank you so much, Craig. Take care about you, too, My friend. Thank you. You're just a little research on the fly here. Famous actors who served During the war Beyond what Who we're talking about with Jimmy Stewart included. Let's see Charles Bronson. Charles Bronson, who Believe served in the European Theater. Charlton Heston was overseas, served two years is radio operator and a Aerial gunner on a B 25 Paul Newman also was Mm hmm. Let me see here. Paul Newman's of Humans in 19 problem was part of the United States Navy and served during World War two. He hoped to join the Navy's V 12 program at Yale and become a pilot. But it was discovered interestingly enough that the man with the blue eyes was color blind. And he eventually qualified as a radio man and a gunner rock huts and served overseas. Course. Jimmy Stewart. We mentioned him. Henry Fonda was 37 years old when he joined the Navy in 1942. And served aboard a destroyer, which is interesting because his most famous role when he came back with Mr Roberts. Jackie Coogan, who's Jackie Coogan? You say Uncle Fester. The Adams family and a child star. In, uh, December of 1941. He requested a transfer to the Army Air Force as he was an experienced civilian pilot. He was made a flight officer and soon participated. In a dangerous mission. Tony Curtis was in the Pacific Theater and, of course, Clark Gable. Joined the armed forces. And it was the army. I guess that he joined. And I'm sorry. The Army Air Corps is a gunner. And after completing 13 week training commissioned as a second lieutenant, though just a few of the Hollywood actors and the World War two vintage that we were talking about, but getting back to the matters at hand. We're focusing a little bit on Went on a lot on the movie. It's a wonderful life this time of year. It's a stable and if you'd like to join us and reflect on some of the scenes we've already played. They include ambition. They include the father and son relationship. They certainly include defending the little guy and the temptation that George almost it comes to. We can squeeze in gym right now. I think we'll get Jim without any waiting, Jim. Hey, cool. Welcome. Oh, I had a natural John Wayne because John we obviously one of the greatest actors about degeneration. And I said No, and this is what they used to take a lot of flak about that because his career was just getting into full mode when the war came, and he was torn between joining And Because, Mr Ford I think Ford, which is where Director John Ford and he kind of like I was saying, are you gonna join? Are you going to stay where you going to do, and he kept putting it off and putting it off. But, you know, it's not my gonna give John Wayne this. Yeah. I think he was a big help where the position he was in because he inspired a lot of Americans and take the morale high. So even though John didn't serve you did he did his part for his country. You could take flak for that. If we didn't have time about that. He made a bunch of movies during the war as well. And you know the movies that were pro America and all that. Um, but yeah, he He was unique in that because he was so associated with war. Um, I think getting credit for that. But I'm not tricked up a gun, but he did. He did pick up something to help us well. Ronald Reagan also didn't serve overseas but was activity on the home front. I mean, and and these days These days. With a volunteer army and very few people in Hollywood, volunteering to do anything beyond make movies and make a lot of noise. I think it's AH, I think it's a different, different area. Any thoughts on the film that we're talking about, though on it's a wonderful life because I never picked up on that movie. For many years, I was a musician playing rock and roll. I was following the Beatles and everything. In other words, my mind was somewhere else. But as I get older, I realized what a great movie itwas you know, I was really inspired by that movie about I love the little part of the end. When the little girl says, Daddy every time you have a bell ring. Uh, did you get these wins? There is like the most touching part of the movie. You know, I met the one I met the woman who played zoos or the little girl 25 years ago when she was in her middle age. Let's put it that way. And I was like a kid in a candy store meeting this woman who played zoo Zoo and I remember her telling me it was in an event that I remember her saying that Jimmy Stewart was so sweet to the kids. You know, the Uh huh. PD Johnny's Susie and they loved them..

The Story of Auld Lang Syne

"Well when this time of year rolls around you probably will hear one song and one song in particular seemingly over and over again. Quick note here. I was listening to my christmas traditional songs. And i kept hearing it. But what song am i talking about. Well i just told you old. Elaine sign it does have a rather big nostalgia meaning to it and along with it here in the united states. A bit of sadness and usually marks an emotional scene or we action. The song. old lang sign was originally written in scottish. When taken apart and put back together again. An- actually means old long sense and is translated yet again to mean all times sake or for the sake of old times this song that is mostly sung and means the emotional conclusion to another year. And don't we need that. It also means that one must remember people from their past and raise a toast to them. Originally it was written many many years ago as a scottish celebration song. Old lang zayn is actually a scottish language. Written by robert burns in seventeen eighty eight and set to the tune of a traditional folk song. But did you know that. In the netherlands. It is a soccer anthem and in japan. It is a song about firefly's and and south korea. It was the national anthem until nineteen forty eight. It is known as being easily adaptable and mostly all musical styles. That is why it is so cool but at its core it is well known and many countries especially in the english speaking world. It's traditional use. Being to bid farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight on new year's eve it is also sung at funerals graduations and as a farewell or ending to other asians the international scouting movement in many countries uses it to close jamborees and other functions and a little note here when i was watching the crown on netflix day. Sung it when they said goodbye to the prime minister. Certainly most of us know the song old lang zayn but to quote from the first stanza of the english version of the james watson ballad. Here it goes should be aware since be forgot and never thought upon the flames of love extinguished and fully past and gone is thy sweetheart now grown so cold that loving breast of nine the thou cast never once reflect on old lang zayn in scotland. It is common practice that everyone joins hands with the person next to them. To form a great circle around the dance floor at the beginning of the last verse. Everyone crosses their arms across their breast so that the right hand reaches out to the neighbor on the left side and vice versa win the tune ends everyone rushes to the middle while still holding hands when the circle is re established everyone turns under the arms to end up facing outward with hands still joined in countries other than scotland. The hands are often crossed from the beginning of the song at variance with scottish custom. And did you know. The scottish practice was demonstrated by queen elizabeth second at the millennium dome celebrations for the year. Two thousand some press outlets berated her for not properly crossing her arms. She was unaware that she was incorrectly. Following the scottish tradition and because of its easy tune and melody it was also used as a song to signify for the war to end having the title. I wish the war was over and it was a popular anti-slavery song entitled fling out. The anti slavery flag both were using old anxiety as the basis for those songs. If you listen closely you can hear the song all lang sign and many movies too. Well did you know that these movies are we willie winkle a nineteen thirty seven. Shirley temple movie when her character sings to console a dying soldier. Mr smith goes to washington the nineteen thirty nine movie. Ocean's eleven the original of nineteen sixty as background music and the poseidon adventure one of my favorites that was made in nineteen seventy two ghostbusters and nineteen eighty nine. When harry met sally in nineteen eighty nine as well forrest gump in nineteen ninety four and elf and two thousand and three and most notably the very last song that is in the movie. It's a wonderful life with jimmy stewart. It is after all probably the best feel good ending in a classic movie ever with plenty of emotion for the main character at the last scene of the movie which brings george bailey the main character to tears as he acknowledges how great life really is and it is always at the stroke of midnight composer guy lombardi would play it on the radio and continued the tradition for fifty years afterwards. Dick clark took it up to play at the stroke of midnight on. Dick clark's new year's rocking eve. Every year and new york city as the big ball dropped at the stroke of midnight but after dick clark retired from the show ryan. Seacrest did the same at the stroke of midnight every year. They all had something in common with playing the song. It was an remembrance of those that came before and at the same time to mark the new year. All the fans and celebrators would sing along to the classic song so this year twenty twenty when the clock strikes. Twelve a m sing along to this classic song. Even if you don't know all the words we are indeed saying goodbye to twenty twenty

"Many years especially when right field was more impactful when the foundations of today's age were taking off so much research with here at Afrl, and there's all kinds of research and aerospace research places that are here. It made a lot of sense Scott Crossfield even said to me once amy, you're not a pilot unless you through right field everybody who's anybody flies through right field, and of course, you know in the early days, there were Ayla celebrity who always came on China and it was John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart. Who's who I remember? My first enshrinement in nineteen ninety, nine Ted Williams came at Joe Foss. We've had John Travolta Dennis, quaid miles, O'Brien all been and sees it the hall of fame event but I would say following the economic downturn of two thousand nine and companies started to pull out of the Dayton area. It was harder to get that kind of support. So while the city of Dayton wholeheartedly loves having the hall of fame here we also Need people who can sponsor because we receive no federal state or local funding at all whatsoever. So we have to depend on aerospace aviation companies industry to support US and in Trimbe it was a big help us getting brand recognition. It's never been moneymaker. It's part of our mission to memorialize. So we need people to support our education and support are learning center through sponsorship. So what we decided to do in two thousand seventeen is actually take quote unquote. Show on the road, the Oscar night of aviation left Dayton and we went to Dallas first, and then we went to DC in twenty, eighteen and Denver and twenty nineteen than we were supposed to have a homecoming here in twenty twenty. But of course, the this year has been postponed until two thousand, twenty one we're working on getting is back to the National Aviation Hall of fame in Dayton use an abbreviation there a F- on the Air Force research. Lab. So. Here Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Employees. I think it's twenty to thirty thousand people in. Southwest Ohio, and only about less than half of those are active military. So there's a lot of research scientists here, and that's where the United States air force does all their most important research everything from what they're going to build aircraft out of to what their munitions do and Jet Propulsion. It's all located here in Dayton at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Still is very much a hub of aerospace activity. especially from the military and. Speaking of which there are signs that the or the appeal of aerospace is not resonating with the youngest generation do you sense that and if so is the hall responding in some way? It's hard because it's just like covert. The company's nonprofits that survive cove. It are the ones who are going to adapt and react to the situation with kids with this next generation they're not so much looking up lake weeded or the generation before me did Neil Armstrong stood in one place and what's fair to the sky and we all know the Wright brothers played with a little plastic helicopter type thing that inspired them. So we need to appeal to kids in. What interest them? So that might be if they're interested in the environment, they WANNA make less noise from aircraft. They want less jet fumes from cargo plane. That kind of thing we have to say, why not you? Why don't you figure that out? It makes me think of enshrining clap Myra who wanted a safer jet plane. So he thought about it and thought about it and he Allen Clapp mark came up with this idea of putting a parachute on the top of. A plane and everyone's like that's not gonNA work except the vision jet is pretty remarkable. So what we need to do is have kids interact or read about or they have to know who Bill Mayer is, and it isn't just Alan Shepherd. It isn't just the astronauts it isn't just the inventors it's all the Chinese and they can inspire kids more than just an aviation. It could be designed it to be dreamers that could be artists, but if we all have. Heroes. That's what gets kids going and if we give them a problem like make less noisy aircraft or might be a kid who's a Gamer and they sit on the computer all day, they're actually going to be fantastic drone pilots. We just have to recognize what they're doing and adapt to it.

How Europe is responding to the coronavirus pandemic

"Want to start really by having a look at what is happening in this part of the world and certainly how countries In and around a Middle Europa at handled covid nineteen as pandemic some economic powerhouses. The United States of course the UK have had a bit of a miserable time. You could say but Germany and Switzerland are getting back on their feet and even in the last hour or so here in Zurich. We heard the country's main aviation hub of the national carrier. Swiss have outlined an incredibly aggressive relaunch plan. Of course if we go north to the border in Germany LUFTHANSA'S HOPING TO INC. It's bailout package to do a bit of the same well for more on this. I'm joined here in Zurich Rob Cox regular with us. When is the global editor of Reuters breaking views and on the line from start in south western Germany on a Rosenberg as also the line and she is head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy Sigme Global? Welcome to both of you rob. I wanted to start. Do you think something is up? Maybe in this country I think also we look to Australia and certainly Germany as well as everyone starting to behave as a bit of a block at a time when everyone is supposed to be yes nice nice role in together are we moving into a period where people are maybe trying to score a few points. Released position themselves That look we are open for business. And we're moving ahead here. We're kind of in this competitive de Lockdown Mode. Where everybody you know? Calm countries like Switzerland which WanNa score high on the the Doing Business World business indicators and things like that and I think they have something like thirteen hundred. Us companies alone. That have offices or something here so everybody is trying to kind of to ease the ease travel. Do it in the right way. But also the same time to showcase that they've done a good job or a decent job of of battling pandemic of ensuring that their citizens have safe that that and doing it in a sort of you know an intelligent way And in some ways opening opening up the borders as a way to show that off now I think they're quite conservative. You saw you saw. The Federal Council was saying yesterday and in other countries. You know there are still this tension between the politicians as it were and the health professionals at still going on. We're still going to see that for quite some time. But there's definitely a sense of like like let's get moving again But the the the big issue though is you can't just apply what the Swiss do or the Austrians due to say London or Dublin or Perez and I think so. The worry is a little bit like we have these fights over tax policy right That you have this sort of race to the bottom in some ways and I think that's it's one has to be quite careful. So if the Swiss open up or the Germans and people say Look Frankfurt's open for business in Syracuse. Open for business. The worry is that these other guys. I don't know or London that engage a well. We better do it quickly. Problem is that there's no one size fits all for battling this pandemic Rosenberg. When you look from your side of the border but maybe across to Austria and Switzerland do you feel that may be an of course? Federal Council Minister over in Vienna yesterday front from Switzerland. Do you feel that the dock nations are starting to to get work in a bit of unison? Work as Mitteleuropa to say that we can together be the the engine that we can point direction. We know that this is a time of of not great central leadership. I'm not sure if there's really a cross border collaboration as as that. I think it's more happening more here. Is that individual states within Germany. I using this as an opportunity to profile themselves when you look at pandemics throughout history typically they benefit smaller entities smaller countries smallest state smaller city states. And exactly the same has happened in this pandemic and Jimmy Away is positioned the way is positioned also because of its highly federalized decentralized system which means you have sixteen individual states that can make their own lockdown and opening up decisions and these decisions currently being made. They're all over the place and I would say there's kind of a rather than we're in this together. I would say there's a little bit of a rivalry at the moment towards who can open up. Fossa who is more concerned with the health of individuals citizens than the others? So it's still pretty much an looking inwards would say Germany. Do you think that some of that also ladder is up though? I mean whether it's whether you're talking about Bio You're talking about no Don Volya that obviously people who are sitting at the Foreign Ministry in Berlin. There were trying to figure out. How do they put this into a concerted message Which they can put across globally? I get the sense. is certainly in Switzerland while the Swiss like to talk about being humble and they don't WanNa talk about having had a good pandemic you do get the sense here that they are trying to. Of course push their message. This is a country that is going to be open for business. If you need to come to Europe And hopefully do need to come to Europe to have a meeting. Then maybe you might consider coming here. I and I'm wondering if Berlin regardless of what it's doing with a federal structure with the states are doing they're trying to have some kind of unified message or no yes. Of course ultimately there's a lot of coordination still trying to be made on on the national level. Am I do think that Germany has certainly benefited from this Kobe crisis? It has turned a crisis into an opportunity and for a variety of reasons and I think Germany ultimately when you look at where Jimmy Stewart's just before the Kobe crisis it wasn't quite a weak economic position that was stagnation that was not enough of investment. Going on into key sectors of the economy that was all these arguments about stepping up fiscal stimulus and spending and constant pushback from the government that wanted to stick to strict fiscal prudence. All of this is different now. The government is saving business left right and center splashing out it's investing and the economy. The Gym Mindset has changed to away from Frisco prudence that was evidenced of course the supporting joint debt with other European nations. And so in a way. Jimmy's kind of taken an advantage from Kobe. In repositioning itself. And I think if you ask me what does Jiminy and the EU stand in one. Two years down the line. I think Germany will clear when I hear on that we just before we went on air we were talking and you just touched on Dublin Dublin. Of course as as essential in Europe which has done very very well at tech. But we're now in a moment right now we're of course. Companies are more mobile than ever. And certainly when you look at some of those players who are who are in Dublin. Of course their headquarters being On on the. Us West Coast yet. There is mobility They move around the going to look of course for the best tax breaks That are out there. Is this also time and again I mean. Certainly you see the power of the money that various spends on go and put your headquarters or least your your regional or European headquarters in Munich. For example do you see this kind of acceleration? Absolutely the ease of doing business index. This is this is going to be part of it. Everyone's going to look at how you did it during this crisis And I think and how quickly you were able to come out of it and I think come. Countries like like Switzerland Like some of the Nordic countries that have have done a pretty good job a relatively good job relative to France or the UK or Spain or Italy are so they're going to have a better pitch to make an a country like Ireland. Which is you know punches. Well above its weight when it comes to global headquarters for I say European headquarters for many of these TECH COMPANIES.

Director Joe Talbot on 'The Last Black Man in San Francisco'

"We're going to hear from the Director and Star of another brick shortlist her the last black man in San Francisco. This is directed by first time feature filmmaker maker Joe Talbot and it tells the story of Jimmy. A young man with dreams of reclaiming a large Victorian House in the heart of the city that he spent some time living in when he was a child. It's a home that his grandfather built. Jimmy's played by Jimmy fails in his first film role and fails was a childhood friend of Talbot's so this film story is very much fails story. He shares a writing credit with Talbot on the movie. The last black man in San Francisco debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Where Talbot won the Festival's best dramatic directing award along with a special creative collaboration award that he shared with fails? The movie played in limited release over the summer. And here's here's my conversation with Joe. Talbot Jimmy Fails so Jimmy. This is your story. You play a character with your name and the House and family elements Sir rooted in your actual experience and you guys were friends going back to your teenage years Is that right. I'm curious about how both of you on. This film approached the truth. And I don't mean so much you know what lines up with reality what events actually happened or not but how you each felt about taking your individual experiences this is and meshing those together and then translating them to the screen into something that is ultimately a fictionalized version of of Jimmy Story. Much sure I mean I think it's I think this story you know when it first the story that inspired everything. which is you know the story of the House of my family story? I think Once people reached out and We're we're telling us how much they related to that. I think that sort of helped the story get more and more developed Jimmy's referring into that as early on we knew you know this was going to be a hard thing to make a feature film. We've never done it before I'm a high school dropout. He's he's only ever start on my movies so we shot a concept trailer which was essentially him skating through the city telling the story of his grandfather. That had inspired the film Tom and so when we put it online not really expecting much are knowing what could happen. We started getting these emails from people who are saying These same things are happening in my city. And some of those people actually in the bay area and so we kinda banded together in what felt like the last group of artists in San Francisco and together. We developed it Over you know a few years And I think through that process. I mean everything that we've done that we've made including with my brother Nat. We made movies growing up. It always came from some true story. Sorry and then through our sort of conversations and our collective imagination grew into something else but we tried to keep the core of what was interesting about it to begin with what had made us want to make it even if characters change situations did. They often came from things that that we had seen. So I think that you know Jimmy says sometimes but I think it's true it's like we wanted to make it feel emotionally true. No matter how Dri Mike the worldwide the part that really resonated with me I grew up in a small town in Iowa and moved Chicago about sixteen years ago. But the part that really resonated with me was Jimmy's attachment. Your tach meant to the House that kind of sense of attornal ownership over this I think about the first house I lived in as a kid and lived in through junior high. I still romanticize it completely. If I'm back in town I drive by it every time I go there. If I had the means I'd I'd buy it. Just leave it sit empty like two times a year that I could go. Oh hang out and it'd be the worst summer home of all but it's something I would do if I absolutely could my dad I think about. He had a guitar when I was a kid and a motorcycle that now that he's this past if I could get my hands on those I of course I'd give anything to do that and I'm just I guess I'm kind of curious about that and and your relationship to that idea of of ownership over those things things and why we sort of as as humans. I guess just inherently romanticize objects and things like that. I think I've got a question for you if that's okay order. What is that house because you would want him back? What does it represent for you? Why would you want it back? Yeah I've thought about this a lot and a lot about in relation to this film and I think it is. It's more than just it being something from your past that you romanticize when you romanticize it because it's a time from your past when things were more stable able exactly we'll so yeah exactly the house represents for me represents family represents ownership. You know I've never owned anything to that. You know on their own a house. I'm twenty four so you know but I think that's what it represented and that's what that was my only tied to the city that made me felt like I belonged. I guess because it doesn't feel like I belong to that much anymore So he eh anything give. It's like everyone has some longing for something from their childhood. You know whether it's it's as big as a home and like Jimi cases place where your whole family was before they weren't anymore you know and you have memories of what that felt like or for us collectively like the city. You know there was a city that we grew up in and I think that was sort of one of the first things we talked about. As we became close friends was like what that city felt like. it's a hard thing to try and describe. Its amorphous sort of feeling of like sometimes you can distill instill it in like a certain interaction. You have walking down the street with someone that leaves you feeling a certain kind of warmth or a bakery that you we went to and the smells of that place You know collectively. I think those experiences are what make the San Francisco that we grew up and and as that city feels farther and farther away and that regional culture of you know all the things that Field San Francisco is You know the threat of being lost. I think it's it's part of where this movie came out of was as working through those feelings and also so almost wind to capture that city before it's totally gone. Yeah yeah and that feeling and that amorphous quality you talked about you definitely succeed in capturing and translating is leading to the screen. I maybe you just kind of answered it. But I'm curious about how you did manage to mix that sort of tone and that style style of of realism at time certainly but also surrealism and fantasy and whether or not. That's something that absolutely was crucial to telling this story. And The San Francisco story versus whatever next film. You guys might make together right. Is it going to be similar at all in style talking about hypothetical but is it something that would be similar or would it or or was it just the perfect tone and style for this think San Francisco Kinda feels real and surreal at times. We're products of that. So that's that's what comes through in our storytelling. I feel like you know Kinda was always. It wasn't something like we thought needed to feel like a dream but it just it does kind of feel that way at times because because the way that you you know you feel nostalgic for the place that you're from is kind of dreamlike it's like nostalgia is kind of like dreaming in a sense right. Yeah because you you know you always remember it in a certain way so I think that just you know. Did you speak star with Stewart showing. I don't know if joe was it. Was it more sort of where their actual the tactics that you took approaches to that to to make that To give that feeling is viewers or was it more kind of instinctual as Jimmy suggested I think some of it's instinctual. Is You doing it. You following your gut as to what had to capture the feeling of what Jimmy said. San Francisco feels like but but I think there are certain like nostalgia that is baked into San Francisco's history. You know that does feel specific to that place You read stories of Mark Twain. Like believe in the eighteen seventies going. Oh Gosh nothing like the eighteen sixties has gone to the dogs. This was such a fun town in the eighteen sixties. There's there's a line that similar in Vertigo where character sister Jimmy Stewart. San Francisco's not what it was and so there is this longing for time that it came before you or that you you know had maybe I arrived in San Francisco during As the city is changing and yet I also think there are very harsh realities that come with that change. It's not just a looking at the past with rose. Colored glasses were seeing in the very people that define San Francisco that people that fought for the people that have helped create the the city that we love being pushed out. And so it's I don't think that that changes Just a product of being human and and longing for the past and we're really seeing Are are fearing that. We're seeing the destruction of our city. And so you know there are certain ways you think about rendering that Certain light that you WANNA capture and colors Obviously people no one of the magical things about the city is its victorians and so. This film is based surrounded Victorian I think they kind of captured the imagination for people because they're almost palatial you know and they also every Victorian is different from the last they all have unique detailing that make them feel like individuals and I think that's something that we don't see in the newer architecture that's creeping in That feel as Jimmy sometimes has more like shelving they look shoving or boxes. Cardboard boxes So I think some of that's just inherent San

"It was late on February fifth and congress was in session. They were working on the Kansas territory, pro slavery constitution and things were heating up. Now, remember just a few years ago? There's already been a beat down in the Senate when Senator stood up and said the south is sleeping with a harlot. They are sleeping with the horror of slavery. Well that upset a congressman who heard about that somebody somebody was saying this about the south. How dare you, sir? Say these things about the glory of the south, and so he crossed chambers and came in and he beat the man almost to death. Okay. It was it was it was quite it was quite a show. Nobody stopped him. He took his cane, and he beat him in the head until he was almost dead. The only thing that saved him was that little Jimmy Stewart Senator desk that they all sit behind and he crawled underneath it. And it couldn't be moved. And that was stopping the blows to the head. He was out for about three years and never really truly recovered. But he had to go out and convalesce. For about three years. What's amazing about this story is no one in the Senate asked for the perpetrator to be arrested. And in fact, the Democrats took pieces of that Cain, and they made little teeny canes out of the wood and some out of silver. And they put them on chains that they wore around their neck that basically said you come after the south you come after slavery, and we'll beat you to death. They were proud of it. All right. So four years later, they're in session. And now they're talking about slavery again, and the the south and the southern Democrats were were pushing slavery on to Kansas and things started to boil over more than thirty members started joining in on what became a Malay. It was about two o'clock in the morning, and they started insulting each other. And then somebody threw a punch at one and then the other through back, and it became this melee, and this is this is my favorite first of all the sergeant of arms. You know, the guy who comes in Baker. Thank her. I hate this. States. He has a Mace. Even know students. He carry the Mesa around. I don't know the answer that now. Well, you would recognize it. It's do you know what it is? Have you ever seen it? No. Okay. It is a tradition comes from the eighteen hundreds like eighteen forty they decided to go all regal on us. And and so they made this Mace, and it's it's thirteen wooden rods. And then I think in silver it's bound together like a fashion, and so it's it's bound together with silver than it has a globe on the top and a giant silver eagle? And so it's he carries us around like I can hit you with this at any time. I also have you arrested because I've got this big stick thing. So the sergeant of arms he grabbed the Mace in this melee, and he started swinging the Mace. You're not really actually supposed to swing it. And he was swinging the Mace somebody else would they were they were punching each other about thirty of them conscience each other one guy. This is my favorite. I would love to see this recreated a guy named CAD Waller Washburn. Solid name right there. Cad waller. Yeah. Yeah. Cad baller Washburn. He was a northerner. He was a Republican or. Of the I think he was a Republican. Yeah. Wisconsin Republican called CAD. Water cat Waller Washburn. He grabs one of the Democrats. He was a democrat from Mississippi. His name was William Barksdale, and he grabs him and grabs his hair piece and rips it off. This is one of the most satisfying moments. I can possibly imagine imagine somebody in Washington DC, they're having a brawl and a famous politician with which had to be an infamous hairpiece somebody reaches and rips it off his head and he's bald. How satisfying would that be needed to happen in our more get togethers in Washington? Does it needs to happen tonight? It needs to happen tonight. I'm going to be up in the balcony. And I'm going to be going. Cadwalader washburn. Anyway, now, here's what made me think of what I thought of when I read this. Stew. Do you? Remember when George are agent. Went through a period of his life where he thought he should have to pay. I don't know. I don't remember this now, really know. Wow. Okay. So geor-, George he's he's bald as a cube. All. He's got the hair right around the strip. He's been bald since nine nineteen seventy one. And everybody knows that he's spoiled. He comes into the office one day and. He he goes into all the management, and I'm on the air and somebody comes into the offices. Do not say anything Georgia's wearing a toupee. And I'm like what Georgia's wearing a toupee. Well, maybe he's wearing it as a joke. No, he's not we called. He's he's he's wearing a toupee. We call. Okay. Division sources of some sort. So is this is this a joke to pay? So he he wears the to pay and I'm sitting in this meeting, and I'm like, I can't I mean, I have to say something, but I don't I don't just in case. It's a joke will about ten days go by and no one has said anything about this. And and I said before he was coming in. I said we we have to tell them about the to pay because it's ridiculous and he serious. And so there is like, no, no, I'm not gonna say anything I said, I will. So he sits down in my office. And I said, George. I got to talk to you about the hairpiece. He said what I said the hair. What did what he's talking about? George. You've been bald completely balding until last Friday. You. I mean, we all have noticed. What what what do you? What do you think? I think it looks ridiculous. Why why are you doing this? And he said, well, thank you for saying, something, you know, nobody would say anything to me. And I it was just a joke. It was just a joke, and they could tell that it wasn't. And it was him just going through a time in his life. I mean, guys women don't understand what what hair losing your hair does to you. It freaks new. And apparently all the way up until you're in your seventies. It continues to freak you out. So he took the hairpiece off. But anyway, I brought that story up because I thought you remembered he looked ridiculous in it. And that was in like twenty ten when hairpieces were good. What did hairpieces look like in eighteen fifty? Yeah. That's like east slaughter a beaver on the way into the capital. And you just throw it out. That's that's about as good as like skin. That'd be like a Coon skin. What did that look like if you imagine how ridiculous somebody looked in one of those back, then you think that's bad pick? How it smelled? Nothing. Could have smelled good in that era. Imagine a either a dead animal or a bunch of other humans hair kind of just worn on. I'd sweaty head with no air conditioning. Oh, I hate to. I hate to bring this up. I hate to bring this up. But you know that in medieval times. Urine was a prized possession. Urine was collected. And and I hate to even I mean this true, they used to think that it had purifying properties, and so they would wash their hair in it, and they would like brush their teeth if they brush their teeth with it is this true. It's honest to God true. No. It's honest to God, drew shockingly the life expectancy was like thirty two. No. That was all day. Okay. That was old age. I know what you can say what you want. You could say how horribly oppressed you are in all these things impression your teeth, and washing your hair and urine man, be happy. Be happy, man. I think that's how Trump starts the state of the union today. Hey, look, there's some like, but you're brushing, my hair, brushing your teeth, and washing your hair and urine. So be happy. All right. State of the union. It's pretty strong..

"Have a contingency plan for everything in your life. Because they have the other half of your blueprint. You know, they had a spirited. You have your copy which was stapled to your behind when you born. Can we move and alter these events in our lives based on what? One of the great gifts that the universe gives us his free will and while the lessons remain, the same George how you go about getting there can be altered to suit any way that you want at spirit will help if you say, no, I really like doing it this way, even though they may have had a plan this way, they will go over here. And listen to you can do it your way, you know, in case you fall on your face. They have that contingency plan to come along. And that, but yeah, you can you know, people always say, well, can you change your dog? But one of the things you do with changing, your this is because of everything that comes out of your mouth conscious of how you treat other people. Because you're you're literally compounding, you're you're not careful. Well, and we are at a time period right now Hance, it's it's worse. I think then what it was five years ago when we last talked and. I agree with you. I absolutely agree with you. I'm utterly amazed. I I I'm not gonna get into politics. I don't do that. But I am utterly amazed at what is happening to certain parts of the world. I mean, you look at the big picture. So what is the big picture for us? Well over the next five or ten years. Alright I hope everybody can hear this sounds kind of corny. But it's true. You cannot shine the dark and the light. The light will always prevail. Even though it may get pitch black the light will Pierce the dark. Always always have. And always will but man's inhumanity to his fellow man as. It's shocking SC only, you know, the only thing I can say. George. Yeah. What do you live outside of this country? You see how you look back and you watch news and you look back. You see how divided the country is you see how angry people are and. It will change. That's that's a guaranteed. Fact it will change for the better. Oh, absolutely. Absolutely. Because I thought if I thought that this is what they're was adamant outta here years ago. I know better we're coming up to a season the Christmas time, which one of my favorite times. And I always remember hands the book, it's a wonder if the the the the movie, it's a wonderful life by Jimmy Stewart and. There were so many messages in that movie. If you if you really looked at the movie very settled some of them. Yup. In reminds me a lot about you in your teaching because you know, you you have preached, and I don't mean in a ministerial role. But you have preached the goodness of humanity. I think as long as I've known you, and I gotta believe way before that my right? Yes. I believe in a goodness humanity. Because I know that each one of us is a Representative of the great spirit each one of us are just I like to say, we're just baby angels having a human experience. Put in different ways. But we're just baby angels having a human experience. So that we are source resource, which is part of what this book is about tells us how to go back to connect with that resource and learned that that we're not alone. But the the media, and and and George I'm gonna get myself in trouble here. But I think social media needs to be redirected towards a lot more good than what it is doing to till. I think you're right. Absolutely. Especially the children. I'm very concerned for the children to be very honest with you. I'm going to be doing a book for children down the road here. I have to say give a shout out to Simon and Schuster. They have absolutely been wonderful today. Good publishers. Yeah, they are just absolutely interest for me. And I'm very grateful for all they have done. And speaking of angels are spirit guides angels. Or is that something has no angels. You know, the good book says that God will send the angels to take charge over. You know, there's angels. Got in England where I you know, I found out exactly who I wasn't what I did. They're called guides. Okay. I have what's called an English controls controls. Are the guys that helped me help the others? Well, one thing I'd like everybody to know. The no matter how good looks. They haven't avenue out of it. No matter what it looks like. I don't care what it looks like there is a way that you can bring yourself back into your own life reconnect with your own source because we've lost our connection Georgia. I'm pleased that. We've lost our connection this source, and what the book is about what my life has been about us reminding people who they really are see I learned a long time ago from spirit that who someone was and their behavior are entirely different things. I think we've also lost our way we have absolutely lost our way we've gotten so far away from truth. So far away from kindness. Generous generosity of heart generosity of spirit. You know, when I travel I go to other countries, I say what we would consider the poorest of the poor. They're always smiling, George. They're always smiling. They're always happy. How are you? Mr. king today. These people don't have twenty five cents. But that's not where they're happiness comes from her happy inside, they're happy inside. And that's what I'm talking about returning people to their source will make any normal difference has you know, I've seen over, you know, over sixty thousand people charge what our sessions half hours sixty thousand. And I watched the consistency that this is the truth of spirit has in their life, their fears disappear there anger disappears. Well, they understand that Iraq here by accident. But by design, and what the heck because the design. Well, that's part of my work. We show you what the design is for you. That's what the book is about reach more people and help explain it to them as a direct voice medium. Do you? Also, get a lot of spirits coming to you saying I need to get this this word out. I need. I need people to understand this, absolutely. How does that happen? What what I have certain channel that I go to and I leave myself available for where they may be coming from. So I don't just work daily with individuals. I also work with world events and so. Spirit comes to me and tells me I've just one of the I'm sure you're one of the same as I am they come to say, this is important to us. See what you could add a positive voiced of this or positive voices. I remember when labor tearing down the Berlin Wall was very involved with that. I think I talked to you as much about that. Right. And and so by that's my think your show does. Such an incredible job is because many lights on one subject. So somebody that's looking this way. That way. So you bring these different people authors and and professionals on board to to help people to see what can be I am not a conspiracy. Theorist I have friends that are and I love him to pieces, but I'm personally not I believe from working with spirit this slot. That's a master plan is so huge the light deference the master plan. Therefore, we cannot say up, but our mind chatter, I'll be known when I wouldn't to pass over one of these days. I hopefully, but what I pass over. I won't be known for discussing the Mayan cheddar. I said on a show, you know, three or four years ago on TV show. They asked me what I thought most destructive force of the universe human mind shuttle. There's no doubt. When we learned to control human mind chatter, we learned to control anger, hatred greed. And open ourselves up to all the possibilities. That are there for the for humanity. Basically a good people. Why do you think? The hatred and everything that's going on right now has magnified itself so much since five ten years ago. There is a huge dividing line between an and I've said this now for at least five years if we don't get the inequality in income in healthcare. And care period. We don't get that adjusted down from where the top one or whatever is raking in all the money in the middle class is getting nothing of the poor people are getting even less then at some point you're going to have anger that anger will lead to some kind of a revolution. And I think that's exactly what you see happening. Now. I call it this divide between the haves and the have-nots George absolutely at is brought down other great empires. We need to be aware. And we need to be careful say what you will about Saudi Arabia. And boy, there's lots of things to say, they at least know the secret to keep their little kingdom going and keep the sheiks of Saudi Arabia. The also. In power because they do distribute a lot of the wealth to the people of Saudi Arabia Manabu, Debbie. They take the wealth, and they share it with their people call it buying them off, whatever you wanna call it. What it is. But it raises the the quality George of the human beings in the kingdom's. We don't do that here. We let. I think in Alaska. Yeah. That's right. Isn't that? Amazing. Yeah. They they kind of check for every legal residents as the state about Alaska, Alaska. Thank you.

So anyway, they look at some Wales to impress the billionaire and the billionaires introduced to the whole crew of the station at once it's a ton of characters to get to know. And I'm not gonna bother naming them. Now there's essential. I will mention there's like there's just a whole crew people meet them as we go on. Anyway, there he has been funding. Their investigation of the Marianna trench, which Dr Zang believes is actually deeper than anyone thinks that what we think is the floor of the trench is actually a layer of some kind of chemical that traps heat and holds underneath at a hidden lost world of gods and monsters who'll a an aquatic savage land. If you will which is something that he explains to the billionaire, and I'm just like what has the billionaire thought he's been funding. Why does he need to? He thought it was like the next Snapchat. This let people send pictures themselves underwater and put animated on it. Right. Yeah. Shore on I think we should go IPO before we do that. Why don't you fly over and see what we actually? Yeah. You'd think he would know all that stuff. There's a lot of maritime exploring that you see. And the they go through that they go through that that barrier and they find it is a lost world. There's lots of fish here. And a while. I was like oh to James Cameron make this because it's certainly thinks we love seeing coral and fish forever. And the music is like makes is like like, it's as if this is the most amazing discovery went honest. I couldn't tell the difference between what they found and the normal. Bottom of the sea. They weren't introducing. They weren't introducing any kind of like deep sea life that we haven't seen before they weren't like mermaids and like NAR octopuses or anything. I mean, I feel like the music is mainly there because if you look around there's no garbage to be seen at all. Oh, wow. The seas clean again. This is amazing. It's not full of tires. I guess I was that's worthy. Berrocal sound something attacks the sub in disables it it's at eleven thousand feet under water and the only eighteen hours to save it for runs out of oxygen. Only one man's ever pulled off a rescue that deep Dan one guess who it is. Jimmy, Stewart sweet ARD Jimmy out that trench character. The actor Jimmy Stewart dig up spot. So that he can reenact his amazing dive deep sea divers that he did. I guess between the making of the man who knew too much vertigo when he was an older man, but he was in that prime life. And so he's like, well, are you got a problem with submarine as Vara the ocean? What were your doing? Now, they're looking for some kind of lost worlds, and they say, oh, no yet, you we went through this barrier. And there's a whole warm world down there. It's mechanic, vents and stuff and he's like well, find interesting new types of life. And they know it looks exactly like the rest of the ocean that was a waste of my time and he themselves so he wouldn't help them with the deep sea dive. So no, of course, it's Jason state in which brings up problem. I have with movies like this, which is like the whole opening sequence. Like, why does Jason say the need to have a back story with this shark already? Like can't the movie just be about how Jason Safin counters a huge shark. Why does it have to be like some sort of redemption for his past? Thi this time. It's personal. I see. Yeah. Also PYTI personal young things. But it's think that's a well, it's because they want to set up the idea that Jason saith is now a wreck of a man, and he refuses the job because he's had this bad experience. But now amaze he has a day they find him in Thailand. And he's in a bar. Just hanging out. Looking amazing drinking arguably one beer day, maybe two, but manages just so cut up and he gets on his little mini bike and he's driving through town like smiling at all.

"jimmy stewart" Discussed on Very Bad Wizards

"Yes. Most affected like weird bad. Like, he you know, it looks like a stereotypical woman from the south who passes out. And simultaneously, which I think captures performance vulnerable, but also creepy vulnerable creepy and week week. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. The strongest that he gets is at his ultimate creeping is when he's getting mad exactly it's getting mad for her not for for Judy not doing everything. And that that's a me is testament to Jimmy Stewart. He's he's so likable as as a person and in his roles that for him to be scary. Took a lot. And then when he he's just crazed that in the height of him dressing her up, and then of course, at the belltower he's crazed. But that's when he finds out, and so he has maybe more of an excuse to be created at that point. But before then it's just yeah. And and again watch it's really interesting to watch it because. Is it you really get a sense of the seeds of his obsessive nece is clear in his performance throughout and that it's not something you might notice on the first go around especially given that it's Jimmy Stewart. And we have our preconceptions about Jimmy Stewart that Hitchcock we'll certainly knows about. And. Yeah, I I don't know if you have much else to say, but what I wanted to ask you what I soon that. You think this is a great movie? I do. Yeah. Yeah. I don't want my all time favorites. But it's I think it's a great movie. Yeah. I have no problem with it being considered the great there is kind of a sense in which this is a certain kind of cinema at its peak. Yeah. So I was going to ask you, what makes it great. And I have some thoughts on this. But I 'cause I don't think that the story. Or the acting the writing or any of those things are enough to make this great movie. I agree with that. I would say what makes it great. This is gonna sound cliche..
