"That led into my fascination with Paul Newman. I've always had a theory. The guy married Joanne Woodward who I think is plain Jane. This guy was the most beautiful man in Hollywood history, perhaps. He married plain Jane, and he was with us since they were studying acting in the city, like very young. Doesn't make any sense to me. And then the guy goes on to teach Tom Cruise how to drive race cars and I'm like, oh, this seems like a little bit of a may December romance to me. Then he makes salad dressing in popcorn. Come on. Macho men don't think of salad dressing recipes and the wrong with salad and popcorn. I just don't think most men think about their face on those products, but God bless you made millions and he gave it away. Good, good, good man. So I started looking into Paul Newman, and I always go to these gay sites because the gays know the gays know. And there's a bunch of stuff on this site. I gave to the patrons, and I'm going to talk about Paul Newman possibly being gay next week. I think it's a crazy story. I think people will be interested. But this is what I read on this gay site. During the making of cat on a hot tin roof, whole Newman, if you've seen the movie plays a repressed homosexual by the name of brick. James Dean was supposed to be lined up for that role, but he died in a car crash before production began, so it went to Newman. Now, in the film version, the direct homosexual references were taken out from the Tennessee Williams script in order to satisfy the current production codes, if you will. So the film script kind of dances around the reasons why brick and cat played by the gorgeous Elizabeth Taylor hadn't slept together in years. But the mention of the suicide of bricks close football chum skipper was kept in. Close football chump. That's the way things were mentioned back in the day if you want to talk about gay. He's my football chum. You know, oh, really? At one point, Paul Newman told Tennessee Williams. The role of brick is perfect for me. All my life I've been split into two different directions. One side of me wants to live life with my gay football buddy skipper. The other side is tempted to fuck the living shit at a Maggie the cat and be their heterosexual stud most of my fans want me to be. Um.

I'm just going to watch them on TV. And I went to HBO and they have a new compilation of the life of Paul Newman and his wife Joanne Woodward. It's called the last movie stars. I saw an ad for that. Did you? Yeah, did you watch it? I watched all 6 hours. It was put together by Ethan Hawke, and it was done during the COVID situation where everybody was done zoom. And so he has all of these people who are talking about knowing Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward and commenting on their careers and their interest life together, and let's play the trailer. I think if you were a young person, you're still probably know Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid in this thing and a few of his movies, maybe some of hers. Here is the trailer for HBO. Right before the pandemic started, one of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward's kids approached me to direct a documentary about Paul and Joanne. Total had begun working on a memoir. They did over a hundred interviews, it said to him, tell the truth. Stuff they would never say. They weren't with friends. What happened to these tapes? He poured gasoline on him and lit him on fire. Wow. Except they had had them all transcribed. I'm trying to turn it into kind of like a play with voices. A community looking back.

"Like, where do I go with that? Where do I take that? I'm so glad you talked about the business about James Dean and the acting stuff, 'cause I really also valued just the look at how people do different projects at different times for different reasons. There's a lot of stuff in there about how he wasn't crazy about doing the towering inferno, but he did it. There's also a discussion of a role that she thought would be great for her because it would be fun for her. That he originally was like, we're not doing that. That's terrible. And she was like, you're not going to do this one thing for me that I really want to do. And he was like, nope, you're right. We'll do it. And it was like people do roles at different times, like I said, for different reasons. And I think talking through what their career choices were, is so interesting, right up until, you know, I think the era of so called prestige TV, everybody talks about how television has been an outlet for actresses who are no longer in their 20s. But it was for her to television was for her too, she made a ton of TV movies and was nominated for a bunch of Emmys and won some Emmys and had this really interesting career in these maybe not as highly regarded as some of the stuff that he was doing. But she had this like rich career where she mentored all these young actors. That's one of the ways she knew Laura Linney. And I also found that fascinating. Yeah. I mean, I'm curious what you think Linda about how the film balances their stories because of course part of the narrative is that she has not gotten her proper due. And we do get a lot of her and we get a lot of her perspective that I think most of us did not know before. But I do feel like it's still leans pretty heavily on Newman in some episodes, especially and so much of this is coming from his own memoirs. And so I think that kind of tips the skills in some ways. But do you feel as though by the end of it, did it feel like it was sort of repeating what history has done for her or do you feel as though it actually sort of opened it up and was more balanced than it has been in the past? Ultimately, I thought it was far more balanced than I think the treatment they would have gotten in most conventional documentaries. I think there's obviously a very intentional effort to give her her do with that said, do I think it tips toward him? I do, but I also think there are pretty substantial sections that are about the work she did with young actors. You know, the fact that she made a movie about Alzheimer's before she was ultimately diagnosed with Alzheimer's, which is why despite the fact that she's still alive, she's not a participant in this project. But I think there's an effort, but it's one of those things where you can't trust your own perception, right? Because it's one of those things where people say, you know, if you have 25% women think people think it's half women.

"They all learned how on YouTube. It is just me and ayesha today. So the origin of the last movie stars is that Paul Newman at some point commissioned a massive set of interviews with a ton of people. Everybody from Elia Kazan to Gore Vidal to his first wife from whom he'd had a painful divorce in preparation for a memoir he wanted to write. But at some point he burned the tapes, his children, however, discovered that while the tapes were gone, there were transcripts that survived and they reached out to Ethan Hawke about directing a documentary, building on them. In order to make them suitable for a film, the transcripts needed actual voices, so hawk brought in a lot of actors that he knows to essentially play the people in the interviews to read their words. So George Clooney and Laura Linney read the words of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, Zoe Kazan is Newman's first wife, Jackie, and so forth. Mark Ruffalo is in it, Sam Rockwell, Karen Allen, Oscar Isaac, all kinds of people. And then he also just does a lot of zoom interviews with people like Sally Field and Martin Scorsese. And they also show a ton of clips from a ton of different movies. Sometimes just to illustrate a point that's being made about acting, sometimes to sort of align with something that's being said about their personal lives. The docu series is streaming now on HBO Max. Ayesha, you are a more adept Hollywood historian than I am. And I'm curious about how this particular Hollywood history struck you. Well, one of the things that I always hope for going into watching any documentary is regardless of how well I think I know this object or how well I do know the subject in reality, I want to come away from it feeling as though I've learned something new and boy did I learn a lot new here because I realized despite the fact that I loved Paul Newman when I was growing up and he was one of the first celebrities that I ever cried over when he died. I realized I didn't actually know that much about his personal life outside of the sort of glowing Hollywood Vanity Fair profile or whatever royalty, blah, blah. Yeah, yeah, and his storied famed relationship with Joanne Woodward, who I knew a little bit less about and I'm sure we'll get into that because that is a big, big part of their relationship and their dynamic is the fact that of the two of them, the one who is probably more well known today by younger generations is Paul Newman. I didn't realize that he was a quote unquote functioning alcoholic as some of his kids refer to him as and how that sort of played into his later career rules in movies like the verdict and the absence of malice. And I really thought that this was such an interesting way to do a documentary. And I always love a documentary that doesn't feel typical. It's not just Talking Heads.

They train horses for movie sets. But some strange things start going on around their property, just outside of Los Angeles. And it appears that UFOs are showing up. And I don't want to tell you too much about what happens from there because the less you know going into this, the more enjoyable it's going to be.

And so we know his background, but we also know mixing westerns and sci-fi. It's been done before. So what makes this movie different from all those others? I'll just say it doesn't seem like any other movie I've seen before. There are these scares. It is a movie that is going to be kind of thrilling and keep you on the edge of your seat.

It looks at their flaws that considers Paul Newman's first marriage and the impact that leaving that marriage had on his children.

"On the next all of it, I'll speak with Ethan Hawke about directing a new HBO docuseries about Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward's relationship, one of the great Hollywood love stories. Plus Katherine on Aaron dunk goes over the standouts and the snubs from this year's selection of Emmy nominations. I'm Allison Stewart join us for all of it, we visit new. On WNYC. It's morning edition from NPR news, I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve inskeep. Today, Steve Bannon goes on trial. Donald Trump's one time political strategist failed to cooperate with an investigation. He was long gone from Donald Trump's White House at the time of the January 6th attack. But he was still talking with the defeated president. And the day before the attack on democracy, he said on his podcast that quote all hell would break loose. NPR justice correspondent Ryan Lucas is covering this Ryan good morning. Good morning, Steve. So what did Bannon fail to do? Well, he faces two criminal counts here of contempt of Congress. Because he failed to comply with the subpoena from the House committee investigating the January 6th attack on the capitol. They wanted him to turn over documents into testify, Bannon refused to comply. He didn't appear for testimony or hand over any of the requested records. He claimed that he was covered by executive privilege. The committee rejected that. It said that Bannon hadn't served in the Trump administration for years when the capitol siege actually took place. So the House voted to hold Bannon in contempt, referred him to the Justice Department for possible prosecution. Bannon was indicted in November. He's pleaded not guilty, and today, as you said, his trial gets underway. You know, I host a podcast. I'm thinking that I should claim executive privilege. It would be nice, wouldn't it? It would be nice, but I guess it didn't work out for him, but why did the committee want to talk to Ben and given that he was far out of government at the time of January 6th? Well, they believe that he has useful information related to the planet for January 6th. He, despite being out of the administration, he still in the Trump orbit still a powerful figure in the far right world with his podcast. And Bannon attended a meeting on the eve of January 6th at a hotel in downtown D.C. with Trump allies. As you said, he predicted on his podcast at all hell would break loose on the 6th. So the committee thinks that he has knowledge that would be useful to their investigation. And why did he try so hard in recent days and weeks to get this trial delayed? Well, he made a couple of last minute attempts to get this thing pushed back. And he argued that the January 6th committee's hearings have received a ton of media attention and could therefore taint the jury pool. Now the judge overseeing his case is a Trump appointee, his name is Carl Nichols. He dismissed that. He said that concern could be dealt with in jury selection. But then the other issue was that Bannon was now offering to testify before the committee. His attorney sent the committee a letter making that offer cited a letter from Trump in which Trump claims to waive executive privilege over Bannon's testimony. Ultimately, judge Nichols said the trial would go for it as planned, but he did leave the door open to ban and possibly using the letters, at trial to argue that he didn't think the subpoena deadlines were set in stone. In other words, that he could offer to testify and provide these documents later. Is it possible that other former aides and advisers to former president Trump could end up on trial the way Bannon is? Well, one already has been indicted and that's former White House trade adviser Peter Navarro. He has been charged with criminal contempt as well to counts as well. He's currently looking at a possible trial in November, but two other former aides, former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, and Dan scavino, were both found in contempt of the house, but the Justice Department declined to prosecute those two. Very briefly, how does this ban and trial unfold then? Well, it starts today with jury selection here in federal court in Washington, D.C., then we'll get to opening statements and all in all we expect the trial to last probably about a week. NPR's Ryan Lucas, thanks so much. Thank you. America's latest mass shooting came in my home state. A man fired a rifle in a food court at the Greenwood park mall outside of Indianapolis. Lee gaines of W FYI is on the line good morning. Good morning, Steve. What happened? So a lone gunman carrying a long gun opened fire and a food court inside the Greenwood park mall yesterday evening around 6 p.m.. Greenwood police chief James eisen told reporters last night that three people were killed by the gunman. He said the three people killed ranged in age from their early 20s up to 30 years old. Two other people were injured among them a 12 year old girl. Ice and said that the girl had a minor injury to her back. She actually went home after the shooting and then told her parents about her injury. She was then taken to the hospital and ice and expects she will be fine. He said the other injured person is also unstable condition. Okay, so three people killed two injured and then how was the gunman stopped? He was stopped by an armed bystander, and chief eisen described the bystander as a good Samaritan and a hero. He said he was a 22 year old man from a nearby county, and that he stopped the shooting shortly after it started. He did kill the gunman and this man's name was not shared with the media. Was he legally carrying that firearm into the mall? Yes. Chief ice and said he was legally carrying his firearm. I think it's also worth noting that Indiana lawmakers recently repealed the requirement for a permit to carry a handgun. The repeal took effect at the beginning of this month, meaning that now most Indiana residents over 18 who don't have any prior felony convictions don't need a permit to walk around Indiana carrying a handgun. That means they don't go through any additional background checks over and above what was needed to purchase the gun in the first place. So Republican lawmakers pushed this through at the state legislature and it was actually opposed by the state police superintendent and multiple law enforcement groups here. So this happened in Greenwood, Indiana, for those who don't know what kind of a community is it now are people responding? This is a south suburb of Indianapolis. There's about 60,000 people who live in this town. I would say the community is hurting as you would expect. And no one expects something

"Ford belvoir. It's 73 in foggy bottom, 73 in Silver Spring and 71 here outside the WTO P studios. It is 1140. You may have heard word on the street, Netflix working on a lower priced option for subscribers. TV guides Matt Roush joined WTO sandy kozel earlier to talk about what exactly is involved. The thing is that you have to turn to Microsoft to build this new device that will allow them to bring ads into the world of Netflix, which of course they change the entire whole landscape of television really with their algorithm based streaming service and then of course they just flood so much product almost every week. So they changed the whole equation, but what they never did, they were going to hold fast and say, we're not going to ever have ads on this. But now, as of earlier this year, they announced that they lost several million subscribers, their stock price began to plummet. They have another earnings call, this coming week. And so they have gone public with the fact they will, by the end of the year, have ad supported tier for a lower cost, much like all the other streamers that have come in their wake, have options where you can go in for no ads and pay a little bit more money, or you can get a cheaper version or in the case of peacock even a free tier that has ads on it. Of course, there's a lot of free streaming services out there like Pluto and many others that are very popular right now, but of course you have to sit through ads to enjoy the product. It's almost like they were the pioneers in L there catching up with the others who came in their wake because Netflix isn't all that. If they made just a few hundred less shows a year, maybe be a little bit cheaper to subscribe to it. Maybe. Well, next you have a great TV pick of the week, especially for movie fans. Absolutely. It's called the last movie stars, all 6 episodes are available on HBO Max on Thursday. It's the story of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, Ethan Hawke is the producer. You see him on the Zoom screen of putting all of this together. He's like the biggest fan ever, but so are we. But George Clooney reads from Paul's excerpts from the interviews that he did, borrow any REITs of Joanne Woodward. And you relive their career, their lives together, they had a 50 year marriage and of course both were Oscar winners. And so it's a great love story. It's a great Hollywood story. It's also a dissertation on acting. It's everything. If you love movies, you will love the last movie stars. Again, that's TV guides Matt rauch coming up on WTO once Soto could be looking at some options that would not be here in D.C. and monkeypox, the vaccine is now becoming harder to find. They're working on solutions there, 1143. Stay with us

I wish you guys videotaped that. You know how good that I actually got a letter from the CEO of nima's asking me not to bring her in again. Literally, she resigned the next day. She literally resigned. Oh my God, that would have been so good as a promo for your show. We can make that happen again. And I'm like, I'd be in high end things. While you girls are here, maybe I'll take you. I always, I always am perplexed about this to Paul, that in this little town of 18 miles and 25,000 people, we have like 7 reflexology joints in the strip malls. And it's not like they're also massage and Manny pet, they're just reflexology. And I'm like, how freaking tired are these women's feet that we need 7 technology places. Most of the women here don't work. So what is going on, that people are constantly having their foot reflexology to hear. Like so he's so early 2000s. I don't even know why there are so many of them. But this town seems like it's the place that also still has one glamour shot somewhere in the mall. So you know what? Let's talk about your show tonight. So you're at, I thought you were at the town port country playhouse, the fancy place that Paul Newman and you know Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward lived here for like 50 something years. The places he could have lived, he picked town port, raised his children here. But now he's gone. Joanne's still here, sadly slipping away. But anyway, it's got a lot of dressing. So you guys actually, does everyone sell the spaghetti sauce and the dressing there at every store? At every store. And everyone's very proud of Paul Newman because not just his acting and his gorgeousness. But he really was such a nice guy and he worked out at the YMCA in town port..

"Movement and community of women. Yes that was so wildly excited. The first night we ever the first day we ever did which was at the hammerstein ballroom. Which seats twenty. Five hundred people right. I had invited all these amazing actors to perform it and no one had done it at that. Point and marissa's today had come to see me performed with joanne woodward. Paul newman if you could imagine yes okay. And i went to her first because she had seen it and she said yes and once i had then i could go to the next person say but melissa doing in there like all right i'll do it and then i'd say versatile may and will be coberger doing event and it grew and grew but the night we okay. It was totally imagine in the nineties. Totally packed twenty five hundred people. Boy george was there. it was just like the wildest thing you've ever seen. None of these women had ever said vagina publicly. Have ever done anything like that. So everyone was like vomiting and just completely freaked out by stage and every time one woman would go out and do her monologue. Everyone would be watching on this monitor. They all hold hands. They all scream and yell and they. It was the most beautiful sisterhood of support of love. And i'll never forget glenn who up so much. I had asked her to do the reclaiming counties because it was really about taking word back and of course she was like what are you crazy. My mother will never talk to me and she hung up the phone and she called me back two weeks later and she said i really get it. I just want you to go out there with little glasses being all waspy and by the end of it just want you to and she did and when you open that word and by the end the entire twenty five hundred people were screaming and it was like the roof of that theatre blew off that night. It blew off and to me. It was the beginning of the movement to end violence against women and girls and there have been many women of course working on it before me and we're always in a line and a chain of sister. After sister supporting sister right. Our movement goes back to african american women who were fighting slavery right. It goes back to. That's when that movement began and then there's each stage of are now we've moved into me too but to be in that movement for that chunk of years doing the play spreading the play getting women to share their stories talk about their stories. Break the silence. It was glorious us. It was it was it was on detroit. I don't even know that. I could have had that dream. You know you founded nonprofit. You mentioned vide after the vagina. Monologues debuted and this effort as well as your subsequent effort with one billion rising. You're building the city of joy in the congo. It's been a force in the global fight against gender violence and yes there have been other movements and we hope that will never be a time when we don't need these movements. But you have done more than most. You've raised over one hundred million dollars to help her advocate sexual violence. You've helped lead the conversation. Educate millions of people about these topics even powered women all over the world. What made you decide to congo. Well i been in bosnia. i had been in kosovo. I've been in haney. I've been enough ghanistan. I didn't war-zones where women were being systematically raped as a tactic of war. And i was really obsessed fast with it to be honest with you because i could see the pattern spreading as a tactic to destroy women all over the world but what happened was the un someone from the un called me and asked me if i would interview dr dini mcgee and i was so shocked that anyone from the un was calling me. And i actually didn't wanna do it. Because we were already working in afghanistan and bosnia and haiti. And all these places and we just didn't have the bandwidth but then i read his resume and i was so moved by what he was doing as gynecologist. What the fight. He was in the midst of that. I agree to interview him. And it turned out to be this amazing interview at new york law school for like five hundred people and you know when you meet someone and you feel like they are on some level of transcendent radiance and and what the work. They're doing so mind-blowing. I mean is is. We're legally bloodshot from all the hardest. He had been seeing and he just said to me at the end of the interview. Would you come which you help us. You're the only person i know. Who's talking about the china's and i'm trying to talk about what's happening to the vaginas of women in congo. And if you could come if you could be with us maybe you could help. Bring the word out. Maybe just could you comment in. So i did and I have to say that trip to the congo on the trip to panzi hospital. What i saw there was out of. It was just the most devastating Shocking intersectional reality of racism. Colonialism capitalism sexism merging in this horrifying cauldron at all of it was being enacted on the bodies. Women there were. There were hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of women in the hospital. All of whom had been rigged. All of whom were leaking. All of whose bodies were destroyed from rape and he was there by himself trying to figure out what to do. And i don't know. I can honestly say i think my brain was shattered like it. There was a shattering. It was the beginning. It was the beginning of another whole. I would say stage of my life. I mean dr. Mcguigan has gone on to win the nobel peace prize and christine schuler. Describe her who was is the most extraordinary activist leader woman who i met when i went there. We all became three of us became very very close and decided that we would create displays called the city of joy. And it's been one of the most beautiful beautiful experiences of my life and it's truly turning pain to power. It's a place of radiance. You've said that inside the stories of the unspeakable violence inside. The women of the congo was determination and life force. You had never witnessed for our listeners. That might not be aware. Can you talk a little bit about city of joy and what it is and how it came to be when the city of joy is in bukavu which is eastern congo where most of the conflict has been. We opened it ten years ago. Christine and i spent weeks and weeks going everywhere asking the women what they wanted. What they wanted was a place where they could heal where they could transform where they could learn where they could become leaders and so it became our desire to build a place called city of joy where the women could literally turn their paint power and it hosts on ninety women for six months at a time. Everything is paid for their food their comfort they're healing on they go through incredible Program of therapy through art through theater through dance through music and through basic therapy but it's all groups there because everything is all healing is done in community. They learned their rights. They learned permaculture. They learned self defense and they go from being victims to survivors to leaders. Over the course of six months we were able to get this amazing land so we have three hundred and fifty. Hector's called the world farm where women than go afterwards to become permaculture cultural farmers and they learn how to really be the best kind of farmers in their own communities. Some stay at the farm many go back to their communities where we help them buy and purchase land where they then begin their own collectives in their communities with other women who graduate from city of joy and they then begin to create these farming communities and they become leaders in their community where they bring the school the skills and the teachings that they've learned it city of joy and where they vet other women who can they send to city of joy. So it's this very very eko friendly system of people who graduate bringing other people in who bring other people in an and at sisterhood. Passing onto sisterhood. And we've now graduated. I think fourteen hundred women and is unbelievable. The women are just doing so well. You know they've become leaders. They've become they run collectives they've become Nurses they've become doctors they become you know And what. I'm most proud of is city of joy is owned by the congolese. It's run by the congolese. There are no outsiders who work there. They have professionalized entire staff. It's there's it's completely theirs and you know our our work on this side of the Water is to find the money to keep them going. But you know it's it's been you know one of the most beautiful beautiful beautiful projects. And i think now after these years were ready to start to see whether we can start developing more city of joys in other parts of the world the i mean talk about a purpose in life. What what have the women of the congo and the work that you've done they're taught you..

"So you mentioned april of the same year. And i think the the thing that i'll just t- that one up with is this is i think the source of the of the wives old wives tale that you would not kiss your leading ladies right. There is a story because in the film april. Love you no. I did not this. My making movies was a total surprise to me into my wife. I was offered a contract. I was suddenly making movies. I film was bernardine and we went right that summer. Late summer into april love. There was no kissing the script now. I like shirley jones we got to be friends with shirley boonen shirley jones and so we get to the scene in the film and the director says not the end of this musical number. You in surely are very strict Shirley jones tract at each other. Lean in kisser lightly. I said on the lips he said. Yeah of course and i said well wait. That's not in the script i said. No it's not the script we got to see a kiss. The leading lay yes at henry. The director haven't even discussed with my wife me doing kissing scenes in movies. I would add but this was not in the script right. He says what you're an actor you're gonna kiss the lead but can we do it later in the film. Gimme a chance to talk to my wife about. Is this going to be a problem. Well okay so. I went home. And i to- shirley boone that i was. They wanted to kiss shirley jones and she said i'm ahead of you. She said i'm i know. If you're gonna make movies is going to be some kissing. But but Make me a promise. What is it anything. She said you won't enjoy said okay. I would enjoy. And i went back to the studio puckered up. Ready to go right to tell buddy ad or they had the student who call me and he was livid because it had hit the trade papers including hollywood reporter our apologies that that the star star refuses to kisses leading lady. It got out so fast and it was a headline a story. The boone won't kiss shirley jones assumingly for religious reasons and it wasn't for religious reasons. I kept trying to be just want to stay married. And and i had permission as long as i wouldn't enjoy it too much to kiss the leading lady and you did with other subsequent leading barbara eden debbie reynolds and baker mars. Everyone jealous. oh no so okay. So that's that one. But i didn't enjoy you. I'm sure not. How can i not ask you for these last three titles here journey to the center of the earth. I mean. this was a movie that i think you were only able to do. Because you turned down doing something with marilyn right there was something that's reverse reverse. Yeah i i didn't wanna do d- journey december. The earth does it was science. Fiction is a bing crosby fan and up to that point. My movies were movies with romance and music. And that's what i wanted to major in. And they wanted to do a science fiction film. Jews learn and i wasn't too keen about it but to get me to do it with my management so when they offered me a piece of the film now neither they nor i thought it was likely to matter much because the way movie companies keep their bush but there will never be any profit to share no matter how well the movie did but they said we'll add some songs and so we did and i did that and and it was because i had turned down a movie with marilyn monroe. It was a story by william inge very much like bus stop. Yeah in which a Former emeril still lovely. But you know beginning to wonder what she's gonna do when she's not traveling and singing and not over the hill by any means but you know she goes back home into a mid western town and meets this young kid who's barely out of high school and And they have an affair and and it can't last. But i'm cara die. Would be playing would be wanting her to let me get out of school and get a job and support her and we'd be married and she knows it's not gonna work so she leaves me and my broken hearted but lay call it. You know rite of passage these days. You know you'll remember it very fond with you know with some regrets but what a great thing it was and that kind of i said to buddy ad with the head of the student. I can't do this. What do you mean. I have teenage fans. I can't do a movie in which i have an affair even with marilyn monroe i mean. Of course i'd love to make a movie with that. We both under contract right. He said you know we can suspend you if you want. If you want to do this movie could be huge. You and marilyn monroe. I said i can't do that story. Make gimme some other story. I can't do this me. Having an affair with her. And and so. Because i turned it down. They talked me into doing journey the center of the earth which then they told me later saved the studio because a lot of money. Cleopatra leah tatra. They were the the the they were. When i was doing journey the center of the earth filming they twentieth century fox was drowning onto the excesses. That were the richard burton and marilyn monroe causing the movie. What does elizabeth taylor. An executive told me later that the bankers were about to foreclose on twentieth century fox because of the excesses and they couldn't see the film ever making money the way it was going and And journey send of the earth came out and when it took off the box office saved twentieth century fox from at least temporary bankruptcy and is because i turned down the movie with marilyn monroe which they did make eventually with joanne woodward and richard beamer and it was a colossal flop so dodge that yeah so i just want to note for listeners exodus. I know you wanna there. Your proudest things was the song for that. And you have a sitting in an office surrounded by stuff. You're very passionate about a israel. And i think so. There's that their state fair and sixty two great story ever told in sixty five but oh by the way greatest story limited say. I was so tickled that george stevens. The great director. He had his pick of all the hollywood stars to play various part. John wayne was the centurion. Said that's the whole this was truly the son of god. He didn't throw in villa room. But the but it was at people said. Oh john wayne look well. He picked me to be the angel at the tomb. That said the most important words in my that. I believe were ever spoken. Why do you seek the living among the dead. He's not living. i'm he's not dead. He is risen just as he said. And i asked george stevens. I'm i'm so thrilled. You want me to play this part. But i and i'm i'm studying acting and i i know what i understand method acting but how do i get under the skin of an angel. I just don't know how to do this. He said don't he said one of the translations is young men in white remant. You'd be the young man in white. Raymond wu put you in white raymond and you say with a little edge. Why do you seek the living among the dead. He's not dead. He risen just as he said and And and so. I got the chance to say those words which i consider the most important words ever spoken human history. Joe's chosen by. George stevens. And i was happy that at the premiere at the center. Rama dome when i was with family the lights up. They said where were you did. We miss you. Were we asleep. I was the angel at the tomb. He had me robed in a. It was a light colored robe but the lighting covered half my face. So you wouldn't recognize me. And i was glad i didn't was l. Look this pat boone. No i wanted him to hear what i said and what george stevens chose me to say. And so you know i. I'm so thrilled. I was in that film when the when the business really changed in the sixties. Where you've got people with long hair. The beatles and all of this music tastes and everything's changed like every career. I think things were very different for you right so what what is it. That explains how you were able to weather. Those.

I don't know why it's amazing with joanne woodward who's more well known as as paul newman's a wife but physically a mother who is she's got issues you better word and the story is about her her and her daughters and just what what they know a day in the life so to speak and we're watching the the this movie which didn't have a commentary track a lot of Boutique dvd's for like a better word because a lot of people don't really do dvd's and blue race anymore. So there is somewhat of a specialized market for that now. men a new gold being one such dvd. Which didn't have a lot of bells and whistles on the dvd. I wish it would have and believe that. The film is based on a play. Which accounts for probably some of the dialogue. Back story of the movie. Remember watching the dvd. That i had on and just watching it and just the the joanne woodward character in this film. And it's no no coincidence. That she is. She seems to be in so many movies. That are just amazing movies. Nobody like they might be giants. There's a band they might return to people. You know that. That band name was named after movie. They might be giants with joanne. Woodward and george c scott where she kind of like a sherlock holmes sort of story and whatnot she was also in obviously the three faces of eve the precursor to movies like simple and Successor to move like the snake pits or three vive She was in the sound. And fury which is essentially an unfilmable book. Basically if you've ever read it or attempt haven't but you're not missing. Lot was one of the good things about the filibuster. Just after example of movies that are obviously out of out of circulation. Because they're not but yet they're not gonna be through on netflix. I i wish they would be but but they're not but that's kind of what took my interest at all. This was going on at the same time that last year less calendar year have to just cut of like stop pauses but but there last year. There was on either netflix. Hulu there was a there was an update of what flew over the cuckoo's nest which to you know. The nurse ratchet series. Which for me. There are many people who who like one flew over. The cuckoo's nest will be at the buck or the film. I am of the opinion. That one flew over the cuckoo's nest and all variations of. It is probably the greatest source of a lot of negative stigma and stereotype about mental illness. Okay because you hear that a a and it's a good move. It's one of the few movies to win all deal. Top-four exactly i believe south of the lambs and Ca capra's movie. It happened one night being the others but as far as it relates to mental health and mental illness issues if people here mental illness and the immediately go to jack. Nicholson in the film. And watch it You know..

"joanne woodward" Discussed on 990 The Answer

"In this country? Is that really the problem? I mean that speech last night? Beyond being a multi trillion dollar train wreck. By the way, Chris Wallace loved it. Just start by saying, Is it any surprise to you over there at Fox News that Chris Wallace thought it was an absolutely exceptional speech? Oh, yeah, no. In fact, Chris Wallace said, the reason you loved that speech so much is because it was full of giveaways. That speech, Woz. Christmas tree of goodies. And the best part is you don't have to pay for any of it. And Why? I bet this really personifies who you are at home. The thing Chris Wallace says you most felt good about is that the government is back in working order. You've seen how well governments been handling the pandemic and the vaccine rollout and the government can in fact, take care of us. And your confidence has been renewed and inspired in the federal government. And so he's just confident. Chris Wallace. Is there it Fox last night, folks, I'm not making a bit of this up. If you were able to sit through it and stomach it That's what he said He is confident that Americans watched that last night and Were excited about the goodies from cradle to grave. Best of all that they weren't going to have to pay for any of it, and your confidence has never been higher. In the government's ability to do all those things based on their performance in the last several months with the vaccine rollout That sound like you. Me 110%. Yes, I really I must tell you that even for Chris Wallace, I thought to myself what a remarkably tone deaf fool. Can't that is a privileged guy who has led a very privileged life living in an extreme extreme bubble of bubbles. For that to be your takeaway on the night. I realized there's a you know, self pleasuring element to this for Chris Wallace because his boy won the day. And Orange Mint. Bad is gone and so beyond everything else, As we've said this week to some people, that's all that matters. The orange man isn't giving the speech. So that's all they care. And so you know to them the kindly Old statesman. Has returned and that made them feel good. And I suppose that There is an element I don't know how measurable I can't imagine who it is. But there's an element out there that sees this is a kindly old man doing nice new things. Because that's what Democrats always do. They give speeches about all the nice new very costly and expensive things that they want to do for you. They wanna run jobs. They want to run education. They want to run health care. They want to handle your paychecks and your daycare name. It. We know best handed over to us. We'll take care of everything. And they and if you can find a saintly, elderly old guy who says it in a whisper, who says it in a whisper? Who repeat things for effect. For effect. Yeah. Does. He means it? He means it. I mean, I guess that works on a certain population and one of those people, I guess is Chris Wallace of Fox News. Dana Carvey Nail it. I do him at the town hall. When he's like the gentle father to the country, and he looks like the alien. You came off the spaceship and close encounters. Yes, folks. Come on, folks. Let's get real not kidding around here, You know, you know, we got to do this thing we did, Brock. We did the deal, you know? And you know my dad. My dad. I know. Lost his job and scrap. No joke. Don't you know? You know, wise guy here, he said Pops. Why'd you lose? He said Joey did my mom said That's the cookies, which he crumble. She's what do it. Here's the deal. There's a deal number one. The thing that they said, come on Number two. The two part folks greet, you know, come on. Not kidding around rocket science. There's here's the deal. Come on now. Now that he told he knew he knew it floated, he told Bob Woodward. Don't you Joanne Woodward. He told it's old Bob Redford can excuse me, I think. Yeah, but folks care. I care a lot. People are suffering and I do And my mother said, you know, that's the way the cookie is fellows those places So that I do this sincere guy I love sincere, sweet, so beautiful. That's so beautiful, but there's a lot there if you you know, if you just don't worry about the fact that he's 78. He gets a little confused. Sometimes it doesn't mean you're attacking him personally, or, you know, But you have to acknowledge that, you know, he's just he says. He says We're gonna try. What do you want things you know? And then you know. Come on. Here's the deal. Let me let me just I'm not kidding around. No joke, folks. You know my dad don't lost his job, Miss Grand. I lost my dog. I'm no, I'm not kidding up. You know, wise guy Don't don't And he always does the list number 11 part number two. What They said Number three. You get the drill. Come on, You don't pay face, pony soldier. You know, it's just well, that's not good. Carvey picked up on this brilliantly Been that this entire speech was that Come on. I'm leaning in with spring. I'm saying it with a lilt.

Searching for Summer Shipp

"So summer shipp grew up under her given name Dolores in Granite City Illinois. Her mother Cora raised her and her three brothers alone after their alcoholic. Father left the family. Now Cora raise children as Jehovah's Witnesses and this was a religion there's some are continued to practice throughout her life. She did stop attending services but observed religion. She never celebrated Christmas birthdays. She said that every day was a holiday and she liked by her daughter and her friends gifts when it was her birthday. Isn't that Nice good? Sounds like a nice lady really really nice so some are grew up in extreme poverty under pretty rough circumstances and of this. She has pretty frugal but in our young adulthood she married a wealthy man John Ship and she lived for years in luxury however difficult childhood in Granite City. That never was far from her mind. John Ship was the manager for the local metro-goldwyn-mayer branch. Mgm when he moved to Kansas City from Florida in nineteen sixty nine now summer had moved to Kansas City just a few months previously. She saw the city as a place to forget her pass and she's going to create new life for herself. Yeah that was important to her to kind of start over. The childhood was rough so John. Lived in the same apartment complex as a friend of summers and when she visited that friend at the community pool she really caught Johns I. Some are was not a classic beauty but she was really pretty at five foot one inches tall and just over a hundred pounds. She was tiny but she was a bundle of energy sometimes described as sprightly so although John had a girlfriend at the time he broke things off with her to be with summer in October of nineteen. Seventy summer was pregnant and she told John on the night. He took her to see an advance screening of the movie. Two thousand one a space odyssey and after that they decided to move in together and just see if they could make things work. John's apartment became their first home together and their front door was just feet from the pool so John worked as he floated in the water and Sunday himself. The phone set nearby and when it rang he would just paddle to the edge of the pool and work on deals so this is kind of living the dream. I guess float around in the pool. Yeah phones broke their nice good way to do it but he did work hard. He negotiated film showing contracts for hundreds of theaters throughout Missouri and Kansas. So he was really on his way up in the industry at this point so some are in. John got married at the courthouse with John's brother and a friend of summers as witnesses and they had a daughter who they named Brandy. She had read here like her mother's but even brighter and darker and both summer and John were just thrilled with this little girl. They moved out of the apartment and rented a cottage that summer adored for a while and then as the money kept coming in two years later they moved into a duplex in a very upper class area living near professional football players so John left MGM and but an independent Film Distribution Company called Thomas Films and after he bought it he changed the name to Thomas and ship films. The company was more successful than he had ever could have been able to imagine. He made a ton of money so much money that he felt like he'd WanNa Lottery. Are He come up from humble beginnings himself? Yes I think in summer really didn't know what to do with all this money. It was foreign to both of them and I guess summer was able to kind of not focus on it. She just wasn't that interested in things but I think John it kind of affected him and he got carried away with it here. Well I knew her. Religion would seem to me to make her less desirous of money. And what money can buy share? I mean I'm sure she liked not having to worry about it like she had all her life absolutely and remember up until this time she's still going by her original name. Dolores but when brandy was just a toddler that's when she legally took on her new name. Summer brandies middle name was Alexis so some are named herself summer. Alexis ship and by the time brandy was three. John was making over two hundred thousand dollars a year. And this is the nineteen seventies. So I looked it up. And that's about seven hundred thousand dollars a year equivalent in today's money so ton of money tournament in nineteen seventy four. They bought a two story. English Tudor home in the exclusive Crestwood neighborhood and they had a house with a huge private in ground pool. An Art Gallery Jim Asana just everything. Yes so brandy was Kinda spoiled. When she was a little girl. It was almost unavoidable even though she did get a lot of attention as well as things but like I mentioned John's lifestyle just became out of control as his income was soaring. He spent time on the West and east coasts partying with the rich and famous. Eventually he found himself with an expensive dependence on cocaine and pills and is John pulled away from his home and family life into this life. Some are just kind of channeled her love and attention into raising her daughter. So Brandy got a lot of attention. Showered on her. Maybe too much if that's possible. Do you think that's possible to give a kid too much attention? No again it depends on what kind of attention. Well here's my thought on it. You can give them too much attention if you're allowing them to control you like when you're on the phone they're trying to take your attention away when people come over when you have worked to do. I mean there has to be a respect as well sure. That's why I said it depends on the kind of attention right so I think that it can be a bad thing when you get to the extreme. But that's not really the attention being the problem I guess that's more like the The fruits of the attention. Well yeah it's kind of the control like you want your child to see you as being in control of things when you don't want your child to take over control of what's going on day to day. Well I mean it can really be unhealthy and they can have a rude awakening when they get older. And everybody's not just falling over themselves to please them herbs moving so I think that's another issue is you don't want to raise them to feel entitled to everything so anyway I mean they did love her and it was a nice childhood although she was probably a little bit spoiled. Well how does she turn out? She turns out great. Okay so in. Nineteen seventy six. John took brandy in summer to the cons film festival ru and they spent time with David Kerosene is that the Kung Fu guy. Well that's the Carribean family. I don't know which one is which I think David was Kung-fu guy okay. And cary grant roll my love who carry granted yes. He was in one of my favorite movies. What was it sweep? Listen in Seattle now. An affair to remember. I know I was GONNA say that next so afterwards they went on an extended vacation to London Rome and Paris and they flew back to the United States on the First Air France Concorde flight from Paris to Washington. Dc wrong that's That's cool that's cool. That's Nice. Yes where she? Oh totally. And some are just felt like this poor country girl who was living like royalty. John became one of the biggest independent film distributors in the country and they were dining with. Paul Newman Joanne Woodward and Clint Eastwood Big names. Very big names especially in the seventies absolutely well when still around working yeah. He's still big but as her life was changing. Some are really didn't change. Who she was and I respect that. While John was traveling all over the world she stayed home and spent time with her daughter. She also invited other children over for play dates reading books and singing with them so she liked to share in her good fortune which. I think is so important. She even took time to volunteer at a home for emotionally disturbed young women and as a reward for good behavior. She would bring some of the girls to her house to swim for a day and loved it and they worked hard and did things so that they could earn a day at the pool so are like summer. She sounds like she's cutter head on straight and she's living the life. Well you know it's funny because they started reading the book about summer than I found online and I had no idea I was going to do the case but I did just feel such an affection for this woman that I enjoyed reading the book. It wasn't like work and I really enjoyed being able to Read about her in her life. Of course Jon was away a lot of the time. And he had his drinking habits in his drug habits so understandably their marriage suffered. There is a large Christmas office party in the late seventies when summer walked in on John and he and other parties were snorting large amounts of cocaine right on his desk so she walked out feeling pretty angry and worried at the same time. Sure I mean not only worried John but for her daughter you know. It's just very risky behavior. That he was getting into their relationship was getting more and more distant. Rose probably not a lot of good that comes out of a cocaine addiction or a drug addiction for that matter in marriage right. Something's going to happen well and it's interesting that when things stopped going so well for John and he has to really deal with things he does get better. So by nineteen eighty. His company started going downhill and the small films that John Distributed. Were really being snatched up by the major film companies without that business. He was quickly falling behind on his debts and he fell into some deep financial trouble because he hadn't saved enough. He was a big spender and happens. Cocaine is not free. I know but wouldn't you just put enough in a savings somewhere? In case the bottom falls out as a backup will most people would but a lot of people disfigure that. There's no end to this stuff. I guess you feel that way now is at this very very successful company. Money's just rolling in. I'd be of the opinion that this no change in that things are going to keep happening for me. Well and I'm kind of surprised that the way summer grew up that she didn't squirrel away more money because I personally waiting for the other shoe to drop and I liked to be prepared. Well Yeah but she did. She work well not really now. Not at that point or any money. She had came through her husband. Sheriff so what you're going to say to him honey. I need an extra thousand this week. 'cause I'm saving for when you go bankrupt? Well I just say. I WANNA start a savings account. I WANNA put a thousand dollars a week away and it shouldn't have fazed him when he was making so much
