"He he raised Clara's mom when Clara's mom was a girl because I guess her parents died because in worlds of fantasy and whimsey parents are always dying. There's no way to get around it. I'm sure there's been like some horrible story in a movie where like a kid watches all these video likes. He's all these movies about like orphans having an amazing life. And then just like kills their parents. That's got to be a horror movie somewhere. Right. Yeah. Yeah. I think it's called. Kill your parents, the movie sure. Wow. So it improv from all of us. Anyway. Got the studio system but go on. Yeah. It was made in nineteen forty three. That's the weird thing. And it's it's it's, and it starts Joan Fontaine so draw so Meyer, he made that eg for Clara's mom, and he says, oh, you need a key for it's a very complicated. Lock which Claire already knew because she's Calera does machines just like Donatello. And now, here's the thing. He doesn't say. Oh, yeah. I made that egg. I can tell you. What's inside it? He goes, oh, I made that for I guess you'll need the key to figure out the mystery. It's like just tell her what's in the come on. He tasks his our with keeping an eye on Clara while Clara goes to find this key. Father's mad Clair's dancing with them. Then it's gift time draw some gives Fritz a nut cracker soldier and Clara follows a string past Allah wallpaper and turns into rat while paper in the back into our wallpaper. Long darkwa highways that lead to a spooky tunnel and the string leads her into narnia like winter wonderland. A weird anus in the wall. Right. The turns into a tree I guess, I mean from the inside it does look kind of like a like a Pedley anus. I guess yes. Sure. It's revealed to be overturned tree trunk. But yeah, I guess the first thing you would assume is giant anus? I guess that. She's somehow crawling out of the back end of the Sarlak to get to get Christmas present. Guys, this movie, we should mention it was co directed by two people Lassie Hallstrom will you may remember as the director of like the cider house rules and what's eating Gilbert grape. And also, apparently I didn't realize 'til I learned today almost all the Abba music videos. So did he should have directed mama Mia and mama Mia here. I go again. But where are you saying mama Mia because he thinks it's about a mummy that like has three male suitors. I mean, mummies are usually like ridiculously wealthy, right? I guess I mean if you can't like being buried with the bunch of of. Servants and stuff. I mean, usually it's rare that poor people are buried with a lot of golden servants. So yes, I think mummies are wealthy. Why would have multiples suitors what I'm trying to? And it was good with him. And Joe Johnston who I guess they decided we want you to bring the same level of excitement you brought to the Rocketeer and captain America to this ballet movie, it's an interesting combination. And through much of the movie I was trying to figure out who directed what? I'm guessing Joe Johnston to the effects parts. I gotta say like maybe this is the right time to say like Bill look of this movie. I feel is not bad. It looks much better than I thought it was going to like there's all these sort of generic fantasy movies out there that rely heavily on CGI, and such and a lot of this seems to be done with more like elaborate sets, and when it is CGI, it's not Godley CGI. Like, it's a it's a pretty movie, I found it, very dull. But the look of it is is is nice. Yeah..

"And it's still really holds up, and I enjoyed it a much more a as much in the theater, although there are some sort of rowdy audience members who laughing at some parts that were definitely not that humorous like the beginning is actually quite light hearted. And Alfred Hitchcock has a sort of winking approach to a lot of his more like even darker. More suspenseful moments, but there are some moments really there. They were laughing at like, the camera choices that were very much of the time and very kind of overt, but something that isn't meant to be laughed at. So I was annoyed by that. But I really enjoyed seeing it again and in theater, and while I have kind of you become very familiar with gothic hallmarks. And I remember watching phantom threat and seeing a lot of those parallels in Rebecca I actually notice upon rewatch that there were more power per lows to gone girl than I had realized. So this was really interesting for me to kind of notice in that both of these stories center around the self possessed women who mold themselves to these societal ideals and end up being twisted into like, the those monstrous versions of themselves by the question pressures of patriarchal values, and in that in the end become you know, the. Villains. And I thought that was really interesting that this was kind of template for that. In a way of Becca was a template for gone girl. And in in the end, it's interesting that how of the time Rebecca is because it is about a woman who is not what she seems. And she is much more manipulative and scheming than she appears as opposed to being the perfect woman that Joan Fontaine's character Magister as but in the end her worsens are that she's an adulterous and Gandara definitely takes that. And kind of runs within turns into a full blown psychopath, which I found really fascinating. So I really enjoyed watching. Rebecca again and Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine are great knit. Joan Fontaine in particular gives. I think very modern performance in films from the nineteen forties. As Rebecca was those those from tend to be very kind of theatrical, but Joan Fontaine give something of a bottom. Winston that. She's very she plays. A timid character in kind of really goes into it with her posture her mannerisms, and I found that really fascinating. And I Judith Anderson. Of course is amazing as mistaken this is Dan verse. And it's it's of my favorite Hitchcock film. It's interesting too because it's Hitchcock's first of foray into Hollywood filmmaking before that he was making films in in Britain. And was as he went over to Hollywood. He this was his first big flick, and he made a bunch of his other films later on so doesn't quite have all the hallmarks of Hitchcock style. But there is something of it there. And I liked watching it to now because I was able to separate myself more from the book, which I really adored in that compare it the entire time. So Rebecca, and I also watched on a Hulu as well this anime series called code geese. So Hulu recently added a bunch of new anime series. They're really building their enemy. Catalogue and a lot of these are sort of more classic series. I say classic. But really there from like the nineties and early two thousands code Cojedes was something that I'm running when I was into anime like really into it at the time. But I kinda missed the boat on it. So I decided to check it out this time around and see why it was such a big deal. Like, one of the more popular ones. I in the early two thousands..

I think Michael your strategy was correct. But I believe it's John Williams who has been nominated so many times, and you can only get nominated. You're right. It only so many if you have been nominated for so many, correct? A lot of discussion about Leonardo DiCaprio finally winning an Oscar. So I thought that that meant he been nominated lease six seven times. But of course, with John Williams, he's nominated probably every year for one of his yes, fifty one Oscar nominations.

"Good. To this person. Who's clearly very good. And he's like, oh, I just wanna be have that again. You know, it's interesting. I I wanna hit myself for saying this. But an interesting movie would be a movie about Rebecca. Yeah. But also it's also best left to the magic nation at the same time. Well, that's why it's so scary. Because we didn't know what she looks like, you don't know. It's the unknown. Yeah. She's beauty. You know, the most beautiful the most charming the most intelligent. Yeah. Yeah. Most evil also most evil man what a movie. Really like that you pick this. And then I because I normally don't sit down and watch a movie from nineteen forty and this was like proved to me like a need to do that more. You don't have to. But no, I think people should. And like, it's I think if you're not used to watching old movies like this just power through that I like fifteen minutes, and then you're in, you know. Yeah. I mean, Hitchcock is a pretty easy one to watch old movies because he's the master. Yeah. Won best picture. It's not like no some fly by night film. No, it's made its way better than gone with the wind. I mean gone with the wind is cool. But I don't. I wouldn't I wouldn't repeat watch gone with the wind too long about feminist problems. But anyway. But anyway, yeah. All right. You got anything else for Rebecca? I got a couple of let me see here. Well, Laurence Olivier was married to was dating Vivian Lee at the time. That's an interesting, really. And she they wanted he wanted her to have the role was. Character. Yeah. And Joan Fontaine was real wildcard casting. And. Oh, here's the thing. I've found Hitchcock knew that sells neck was going to get grabby. So he shot mostly in camera. Like, the there wasn't a lot of changing that could be done without doing re-shoots because he was like, nah, I'm not gonna shoot extra scenes that have a Nick reedit this movie. Right. So cells literally had to order reshoot, if he wanted something different that's cool, which costs money, and so the chances were less likely. I think I get it. I get that. I'm on both sells again Hitchcock side, sir. I think they both had a lot to offer. World. Yeah. Fells Nick was loyal to the book. I like a good loyal to book movie and. Yeah. Hitchcock was and sells Nick wanted contain. I think really. Yeah. I know good. You saw that. Character is changed so much through that movie. In little ways like, but the character that she was at the beginning is like nothing close to what she was at the end, and it was very sort of subtle. But it's a bit of a magic that plays out before your eyes. I think she's funny to she is funny. She was great physical comedy in there and stuff. Yeah. They're a little bits and pieces in there stumbles on things and break stuff, right? Like like, oh, yes. She g knocked shit off the table like two or three times. So awkward. She meets them. She knocks over the rose vase or whatever at the table, and he's like come over to my table. Then. Yeah. Exactly awkward humor. She's she's a nerd, it's very cute. So yeah. Look for army hammer and lily James, apparently for the Netflix version, really interesting. I know I hope they can I think I could see it off. Yeah. Just keep it source material. They could of course now they could without behaves code. I wonder if they would stick to the book and have shooter in the heart. Yeah. I don't know. It's pretty medal. I hope they don't fuck this up and actually put Rebecca in the movie in like flashbacks because I would really miss it up. That was a dumb idea had earlier. About a real Rebecca movie. It's okay, ignore it. It's interesting. It's like, let's think the most special thing about this movie this unseen character. And let's make a movie about her. Out of the water. Ruin all the suspense. Serial killers. Don't make any effort to involve the media or investigators. They're very secretive. They don't want attention. They almost want their crimes to go on notice. But the idea of committing a crime, and then calling the police and bragging about it. That's a whole 'nother level of terror..

"And he's one of my favorite actors of all time, these great in this George Saunders. George Saunders as Jack fa- Ville, he. So like, just easy breezy cool in this movie. He is one of my favorite tropes of character actors, which is the lovable villain or dandy or the like he was likable. Yeah. It's a lovable CAD. Yeah. For sure where it's like you don't trust played that role. Yeah. And it's like. John Malkovich or Stephen Fry where it's like, right? Pretty much more John Malkovich. I guess always played like a Nazi or a a villain or, but he was likable guy was really likable when he did it because I mean, he was in that one scene where he's sewing out, maxim, basically in trying to get him arrested for the murder is like, well, this is how it happened. But he's doing it with a smile on his face the whole time. So great. Yeah. But it's not like man what a dick you can like still kinda like this cousin even have that big of a role in this movie. But he. Almost makes the movie. Yeah. He made a big impression because he has comic relief. He's. He's funny. I almost dropped the f bomb. He's he's. That's fucking hilarious. Fucking hilarious. Yeah. He's fucking with fucking with the main characters. Yeah. It's like we need it because we're taking them too, seriously, frankly, and he comes in and he's like, well, even the way he makes his first entrance. He's outside and he sort of over that fence and come up over the window sill. He's like, oh, varietal alone. I see like. Really interesting, but also sort of. Predatory but likable is that even possible as the values likable villain. He's somehow pulled that off. And he's so charming and wonderful that I think it makes Joan Fontaine more scared of how cool Rebecca was. 'cause like, oh because he's like her best friend right slash lover slash cousin. Yeah. I mean were they really cousins? I think so I guess back then it was not as scandalous now. People are always marrying their cousins has books weird gross. Jane austen. Now. It's gross. That's true. But I guess that's what you did. And then the great ending to this film, special effects wise, like danvers burns, the shit down danvers or Rebecca or and right? Well with the fire Satan, exactly she turns into hell. Yeah. The way they're paradise ruins everything he ever wanted. She kind of wins in a way does she though I get the feeling he was a relief. Exactly him to be rid of. Yeah. Because he kept. Yeah. That was like the side 'cause his family. You know, it's beauty brains and breed reading which is a little bit not cool, genetically speaking. Sure. Because it's to say that people who are not pure good genetic young going to be bad. They're walking fine line there for sure. So. Yeah, he's I mean, it's not really it's kinda blatant. Actually, will what is what what happens to them? They kind of where they in thirty days, you, I think they live in exile. Because it's she's writing the book from the perspective of them being together. And it's her memories of. Yeah. Because it opens with they're still together the voice over monologue. Never wanted to go back to Mandalay again. Yeah. Yeah. This is pretty great straight from the book. That's how the book opens, but they live happily ever after. Right. Don't you think? Yeah. They can't go back to. Mandalay? Right. But he's still got his money. Yeah. And he now has his pure wife, and she has her husband that is now free. She's not pure anymore because she was exposed to the evil. Yeah. Over it. So she had her triumph over evil as well. Yeah. So she's like an adult at the end he says that. Gone from your eyes, which some people criticised and said, oh, he just wants a young woman like this is a movie about and believe me, I will be. Really against movies. That are the whole plot is just an old older man falling in love with a young woman and all its problems solved. Right. Like, that's not what this movie is. I didn't get that. At all. No. He's just trying to. Get some kind of happiness out of life doing something..

"All right. Well, if you don't wanna hear how this resolves, and you wanna see the movie, I stop now, and sort of spoiled it a little pick it up later, but the first half of this movie is just there's a lot of build up in a lot of guessing very effectively and acting up into this point is really like it doesn't feel like a movie from nineteen forty. There's way more personality in the acting than see it's a way more watchable film than a lot of movies from like the late thirties and forties as like legit genuine enjoyable movie. Watching like sometimes movies for a lot of people including me can be challenging this. One stands the test of time. It really is immortal. It's a bit like Shakespeare Shakespeare on people would agree with that. But it's you know timeless. But at about the halfway point is when after she's been sort of mistreated by the staff and his family are bunch of fucking snobs his sister. Although they are pretty funny. His sister in. Brother-in-law those two characters. Really funny. Oh, yeah. They're great. But also just pounding her about not being Rebecca, and you feeling so bad for this woman. And you don't know why he's aloof. And then about halfway point. We finally learn in that very talky. But huge reveal seen hasn't talked the whole movie, basically. Everything says everything which well, go ahead. You say it. Essentially his wife is dead because he killed her. Right. The the previous story was that. She had drowned in a sailing accident. Yes. But what really happened is he killed her because he hated her because he hated her because she was pure evil. Right. And the look on Joan Fontaine's face during the scene is so fucking hot. Som. 'cause he's just talking and she's just like you really didn't love her really didn't love her. She's been I wish she so relieved to know that she's not like. A thin replacement for this woman is doors. She actually is everything he truly does. And always oh satisfying. And was taken from him by us, essentially for Becca is the devil. Yes. She says awful woman who just cared about climbing the social ladder more worse than that being adored. Manipulating people. Yes. Having an affair with her cousin. Oh, fulfill slept with everyone. Yeah. She slept with his best friend. Yep. That's alluded to in the movie, she seduced these people in order to ruin his life further. Yes. On purpose. Yes. She was awful. And you never get seared. So interesting the book, I know and in the book, she also seduces his brother-in-law, really the the sister's husband that big do f- yet. She doesn't care not about. No, it's the same. The same thing almost this is so loyal to the book minus and things from sensors and censorship. Yeah. I mean, we we'll go it and say that then the Hays code at the time required that if someone murdered their spouse. So weirdly specific in a movie, then they couldn't get away with it. Right. So in the book, that's what happens he murders because he just hates her, right, sir. Yeah. In the heart, and you can't do that in with the Hays code. So they come up with a sort of convoluted, but it worked, unfortunately because of this. Yeah, he he like, I think he like hits her and she falls and dies in like. Yeah. Head hit her head on something. But but then he puts her on the boat and singer out to sea and knocks a hole in the boat from the inside. So it sinks fun is really convoluted. But because she sailed a lot she was failing. So he tries to set it up as sailing axe. Idan? Yeah. And he was in the boathouse when he killed her. So it makes sense. You would think that way if you had just bought it because I didn't know about sending until I did research after so while I was watching the movie wasn't like I was like, well, this seems weird like totally fit and it was fine. Yes. And here's the thing. There's some feminism issues with that. But I disagree. I don't think there's any feminist problems with this movie. What does it get not for because they think he killed her because she cheated on him. But she was awful. No. It's way worse than sheeting. It's his sensually. What he did was not says you should kill. But he made a deal with the devil. He was he didn't realize he was an innocent like Joan Fontaine. Yeah..

He's so when once he marries her he becomes her only thing. Yeah. So. Long way for me to set that up to say that I kept thinking at first he was going to like dress her and Rebecca's clothes and try and make her into Rebecca, right? Is that would be sort of just the way you would think of movie like this would go when you know, it's a psychological thriller, and he's trying to replace this woman. But that's not what happens. No, not at all. So it really makes the character more rich. I think it threw me off base. I was like, well what is his goal then here. But I think you kinda loved her new. He does I know. Sorry, I've seen this movie. What he died. Get into the reveal. 'cause like, yeah, we we can't she's really she's a very young. She still has her innocence.

But she's not she's beautiful in a different sort of a way. Yeah. Wasn't like the big Hollywood, no sort of glamour thing, she has a sweet nece. Yeah. You know, she seemed accessible I think for the time. Yeah. I mean, she's obviously beautiful. But she's not yet. Shallow kind of beauty. She's like more Chessel. Yeah. And Joan Fontaine is so good in this movie. She's so real every little movement of her face. Yes. Just so it feels like a real person is in this movie and not an actress, I believe it. I believe at the whole time and at an kept Emily, and I watch it together..

Claudia writes, my mother was a huge fan of the movie Jane Eyre, she bought every version of the movie available except for the one starring Orson Welles and Joan Fontaine, which was filmed in nineteen forty three and was hard to find. She even wrote a letter to then president Ronald Reagan thinking, he would know where to find the movie since he'd been a part of Hollywood eventually after an exhaustive search. She was able to purchase that version after her death. I was given many of her classic movies. And now, the proud owner of every version of Jane Eyre, clearly these movies mean a lot to us as they mean a lot to those who worked in filmmaking who work in Hollywood.

His upcoming feature is called if Bill street could talk berry Jenkins. Welcome to one A. Thanks for having me. Did you subscribe to fill struck where you remember? I did I did I was a an annual subscription member. Yes. What did you get out of using filled struck that maybe you couldn't get from Netflix? Amazon prime for me. It was the people behind film struck. It was the the person to person curation or these felt like person to person curation it was still an app, but it felt somewhat like the streaming version of walking into a blockbuster video or even a mom and pop video store to be honest. It was just a took the streaming platform made a personal in this really organic way. There seems to be something berry about the experience of classic or independent or arthouse obscure film that benefits from curation rather than kind of an algorithm driven personally. Nation. Whether it's filmed struck or criteria or even Turner classic movies like feeling like there's a person behind it seems to to make a difference. Does that make sense? It makes perfect sense. I mean, I think it's like like anything works. You know, it's why librarians so important when you go into the library, if you're just walking through turning discovered things might yo something, but to have someone guide you through the discovery process is always much more rewarding. And I think that's what films drug did. So so damn well talk about what these kinds of movies meant for you as an up and coming filmmaker were there certain films, the kinds of films that you would find on film. Struck on criterion. That showed up in your work later on. Yeah. Yeah. There were I remember discovering the work of one car, y which which has been written about many many times when over again the fluids of one car why on Barry Jenkins.

I remember when I went high school to the premiere of this movie in nineteen forty was incredible to be there in the deal with Alfred Hitchcock and watch him. Enjoy his own movie, this idea that you want to remake it though is kind of interesting if they do a whole new take on it is in reverse the roles, maybe it is the woman who's the one who wants the man to be just like her ex husband or ex boyfriend and see if she's the one manipulating situation that would be fun to watch versus what is majority of Hitchcock's films would've just the men and their mania ruling the situation except for obviously bird the birds, but most of the time it's the men in the movies ruling stuff in Hitchcock's movies. It'd be nice to be a little bit of the switch here with the remake. Maybe that's what they're talking in the birds. It was mostly male birds that were attacked Jane enough is.
