"His in his Does when he then think about how relevant it is now compared to where it was then and how just kind of independent minded. He must have been in surrey irreverend to socialized expectations. You may not ensure that he must have on some sense. Knowing how difficult commercial audiences would find that clinton at that time. Nothing about has dated. You're right he's he's he's terribly good. I wonder if he's you so good holding the mirror up because it's so funny that people reviews they spill mance people that you can cannot connect with the relate to because i just felt like an ease us like a absolutely us and more serious now uneven in the context of the pandemic where people lost and searching for meaning and anti capitalist society and you know is things that coming up now people as they kind of wonder about what they've been spending most of the hours of their life doing any. We actionable in nevada. Now like you know or stuck in raina. All right. gosh should we do the quiz. All i want for you cass. Houston clift worked on a film after the misfits turned out to be less pleasant experience for both of them. What was the movie dine damien. No that i feel like i'm out of nine. This two months ago clipped was great on the misfit set. New all of his lines houston loved him so he cast him as the lead in his next film. As sigmund freud was royd it called the secret passion but they clashed awfully in that on that set. Yeah have it's it's interesting enough. I don't think it's great that one has dated quite a bit because obviously psychotherapy in the early sixties has changed law. yes damian. What other name actor was considered for gables part cary grant it was robert mitchum guest cary grant for everything under cast which actor sustained an injury before shooting started while he was training to wrangle horses. No it was. Montgomery clift injured his noise. Oh monte s-o-f-i you've both done terribly yet damian. Why was shooting on. The misfits delayed four months initially for four months or four months for months. It was delayed by four. Former musselman's the shooting A tropical thunderstorm was it because maryland was in rehab detroit thunderstorms last four. Now this one destroyed the cast. It was an active strike it. Oh my second guess. But i'd i really believed in the tropical thunderstorm. Well you both got zero. So i think we need to probably put this on ice. Come back in a couple of weeks. Emory record our guys. Let's do our final thoughts casio fest. I give this film for stars out of vine my takeaway is that it is a beautiful film to watch i. I do think it's not not the most up lifting bill so you have to go to. What would you in that mood and ready to have that experience. At the thing. I take away from the film is just how vulnerable each of these car designed actors are and how unusual it is to say that level of willingness to to speak to you i and we are on this kind of bravado or anything like that which i think was more typical to save as active kind of being very. I'm not your typical masculine character. And dinner maryland. Not being sort of ditsy and funny and it. Just sort of yeah. I think it's just such a great insight into what they were capable old sherri how much potential they had that was probably not fully realized throughout their whole career So yeah very special film in that sense. I give the misfits four and a half stars. It's paul hollywood star picture and curiosity at this point fills obviously as we've told very different to anything that marilyn monroe had done before so it's obscured matt respect and fans of who would i think wouldn't necessarily seek out this film but i have also never heard any maryland fan said that i didn't love it when i did eventually see it I would say the fans of the golden age of hollywood should seek it out. If i haven't seen it because it's very much commentary on that era. Just by virtue of starting clock gable at the end of his career and he was such an important player in the thirties that seeing him here almost provide some kind of closure. I told before about how. I struggled to find a term to describe this period of hollywood. Which i would suggest is probably the mid fifties to Seas and the misfits embodies that link. Look that lack of clarity. That i feel it slots in really well between the downfall of the studio system and the imminent rise of the independent picture and i just wonder if there's ever been a more appropriate title for a movie. Yeah i agree with you. But if i gave it four and a half stars. I think that it's a really like you say kesse a beautiful film to look at also think it's a beautiful film to listen to. You can't really watch the film. Without being hyper aware of the fact that it's maryland sort of lost harare. It's gables last hurrah. It was one of the last great montgomery clift performances that we got. He had a supporting role in judgment in uraba after this which was quite good but it was very short. He has a lot more to do here. And obviously it's backed by a beautiful supporting cast. John huston's very steady stable director. It is really down downbeat. But i think it's i think it's a really beautifully composed film all right guys well. That concludes this episode of cellular junkies. Please join us next month. We are going to be talking about gus. Van since nineteen ninety-five black comedy to die for very exciting love. Gus van saying that's a good line. Surprise didn't pick elephant.

"Western romance though it about. Yeah i mean you could chuck drama into that as well. It's like it's got a little bit of everything but looking at it purely from a western standpoint. It doesn't fit a lot of the western troops so it's not a period film it's not set solely in the west doesn't have long travels. It doesn't have a small town it. It's very contemporary and setting But it does still contain elements of the west. But i think that plays really well in showing the difference between older new. Yeah i think it's almost like a bit of a. We love going to see the searches. We love the feeling that those sorts of movies give us. We love the operatic nature of them. Read the the faceoff between usually. It's usually a nasty bully. And he's got all of his bullies. And then you know the small people that are trying to hang onto something. I feel like this. Film's almost like a cold splash of water. Know that time is dead. This is a this is what remains of that time and really. It's all just about angle by and watching something fade away. I think the refrain the is just said all the time. The anything is better than wages is really important to this movie. I think in a new york times review of the screenplay hobart mic gang wrote that their favorite remark when doing things to retain that freedom and it kind of shows a disdain with the nine to five life which was becoming the norm for everybody women included at this time. It's also about the fia that i have of losing themselves to the meaninglessness of capitalist society. But it helps cement that displacement because the world doesn't really have a place for people that don't want to abide by those rules and i think it's ironic the in order to be free himself. Gays proficient has him hunting down wild and free animals. He's literally roping and tying them down to one spot saw. I think that's a good kind of reflection of how that you know. That character doesn't really have a place in this new world. Yeah and it's amazing. I love that that same. What he talks to rosslyn about well. I haven't changed. You'd have back. When i was wrangling horses. A lot of them were sold to kids. They were really good. Ru- i riding ponies but now there's no market for that and so now they may cost food and horse. Food is the price of my freedom. You know. I haven't changed anything that i'm doing. It's what happens after that. And he says to. It's like when you're dancing in a nightclub you just want to dance. That got changed into something else. Suddenly you will hear that. It was a sexual thing he said. But oh you're doing is just the same as what you've always been doing and i think there's a real poignancy and truth to those to that speech that he gives her. We'd ever kitted you. I'm telling you. I don't want to lose it but you've gotta help me. I can't put on that. This is all as bad as you make. All i know is everything else's wages. I hung these horses to keep cell free. So i'm a freeman. That's why you're likely because you are kind. I haven't changed this. He's on a kind man killed. Damian do you wanna tell us about how the film performed. The best fits was released on february. I nine hundred sixty one. The news of gabriel's death still fresh in the public's mind the author and producer frank e. taylor plugged the film prior to its release with miller. Admitting he was pleased with the results taylor going further calling it. The ultimate motion picture miller would later express indifference about the movie particularly houston's heavy use of medium shots that made little use of the desolate desert locations from the outset. It was clear that united artists didn't know what to make of the movie. You'll have sela. The original trailer takes most of the footage from the mustang experience with quick cuts to romantic snippets or to marilyn playing ping pong or walking away from the beach in a bikini original posters included three photographs to close ups of cable and clift and one full believe shore of the most obvious effect of united artists. Intention is probably in the tagline. It shouts and sings with life. Explodes with love. It reads less like a tagline. A more like a review attributed to know. Besides the misfits isn't a sweeping action romance western. It's a talkie film about deeply unhappy. People dying in the desert out shot themselves in the foot by failing to fulfil the promise made to audiences by advertisers. Pull word of mouth. Unenthusiastic notices quickly sank the film which would finish on a disappointing four point. One million dollars. Gross bosley craft wrote. There is a lot of absorbing detail in it but it doesn't add up to a point of the three characters. He said they are amusing to be with a little. While anyhow but the shallow inconsequential monroe he described as blancan unfathomable and road of the mustang sequence houston lacey's cameras show so much of the pitiful plight of these creatures at the screen is full of shock and the audience is left him breathless horror until she persuades gable to let horses says go pulling kyle was also unimpressed with a few concessions and erratic sometimes personal in the runway an generally unlucky picture that is often affecting she wrote monroe has never worked vulnerability so fulsomely before the film has an uncomfortable. Element of fate saw drama. She's pushy about her own sensitivity. If there is a right tone to play the miller script houston doesn't find it but the film has been reappraised over the years and his narrow autism on a classic on rotten tomatoes it has a ninety seven percent fresh rating in seven point. Two on imdb. There's a general consensus that it contains career-best performances from gable in monroe with an allegation screenplay from miller and a darkly romantic school by alex. north timeout. Summarize the initial reaction in twenty fifteen saying rarely has a film content being so overshadowed by its context in the fahd on published book the misfits which includes a collection of magnum photographs taken on the set surge to beyond the riots. The misfits is the story of an impossible. Dream set in america with a great myths of died. Honey we all gotta go sometime. No reason diane's natural is living man is too afraid to afraid to live. We know the author is a genius exposing.

"A little lecherous. Well i did find that a bit Icke initially when he was sort of very touchy with her and stuff because also roslyn comes as the most fragile woman in the world. Like she's gonna go to bed with whoever looks at her at this point in and he is so much older but i think he redeems himself when he tries to hold her and she says i don't like that way and he says well you know. Don't be disheartened. Give it a give it a bit of time or something like that. And i love that. His reaction is so gentle even obviously he's crestfallen but roslin is is involuntarily kissed and touched so often in this movie and even when she's having that that same that you showed me last night her and guido dancing. I made that very close in that same. I mean it's uncomfortably close. There is a lot of kind of open sexual exploration experimenting happening. Between all of the different. I know it does actually feel like a in. That scene especially feels like could do kind of progress into some kind of bluff triangle. But i'm guided. Doesn't you know the film also does pull i think by nature of having lobola have the first contact sorry guido have the first contact withdraws land and then gay come along and kind of take over that situation it does put guido in his place as a supporting characters will thereafter where he plays that role with a little bit of menace. It has a i guess. Motive gay clearly has more qualities than he does more attractive qualities but because the rice's and toyota he stays in the race and just gets perpetually more and more aggravated that he's not higher up on her list of interests. I know it's almost like she's talking a few bones to three lonely lost dogs with throughout this movie. Yeah it is. I mean there. Is this whole kind of beating of the chest. Kind of thing going on with these three men. You know very kind of very competitive but their methodologies are all very different we see some that that a nicer than others would you therefore say is of very trusting person because he said he tends to trust to being this close to these two men despite having told both of these mental having demonstrated to both of these men the note to go there. Well i think because gay thousand. Attach himself to anybody. It's easier to trust because because the parameters of your trust is so limited in we see him saying goodbye to the previous roslyn at the train. And the niro's lynn comes in so you know for him it's gonna be. I guess i guess what he's after is so limited that he's not particularly worried Strangely dates people named roslyn. Never really has this vibe ownership of well. I don't know what do you expect to get out of it. I mean fifteen horses. I mean like if there was a thousand or more but going all the way up there for fifteen kinda hits me sideways. I dunno veteran wages. Anything's better wages. Like i said it's difficult to put a word a descriptive word to this kind of time. In hollywood it is for me anyway. And you had these big directors like alfred hitchcock and david lean. Who making these films and the epic which crosses so many genres was i. Guess the big form of filmmaking. So you know a lot of period films and stuff but also weston's such a big form of film making it this time as well john wooden so many other great right does so. I think the thematic content of this film as well as the fact that you know the three stars were so close to death in the end. Unknowingly it points to this idea of the end of an era. So i mean the film say in this developing west of nevada which was booming in the nineteen fifties. But it's ironically at showing through the eyes of a cowboy which is an occupation that was becoming so rare and you know cowboys. In the sense of people who tend to farm animals they still existed i but specifically talking about gays progression which was traveling in the wilds and hooding up mustang that does not exist anymore and like i said before you know this fences around farm so there's less livestock roaming around free you know. The film does a really good job of showing that guy's livelihood is coming to an end. His industry won't be around for much longer and really. It's not around now. Because that showing bhai these expectations of these huge hoods of horses and it comes up that how many horses are there. Four or five of course motivated by roseland. He makes this decision to end his career. Essentially and i know that when we were originally talking about this task told by the old hollywood western aesthetic but even at that point weston's were period films and the misfits is a contemporary story. And i think that makes the dynamic of the misfits very interesting because we have clark gable at the end of his career telling a story about an occupation at the end of its usefulness. So he's a man in this foreign place out of step with time and if you just look at some of the western that were being made like stagecoach was an early one. That was say nineteen eighty. Then you move forward. Red river was eighteen. Sixty seven in the fifties high noon was the same time shine was eighteen hundred nine. The searches was eighteen. Sixty eight and then you move forward after the misfits even the good. The bad and the ugly was nine. Hundred sixty to the wild bunch was in nineteen thirteen. Boot cassidy and the sundance kid was eighteen. Ninety nine John huston previously made treasure. The sierra madre that was set twenty five years before it was made on the other hand distinct from those movies the misfits embraces. Its contemporary setting. And that is seen especially through. Its liberal nevada location. Where all of these needles are just taking effect and people are exploiting those laws and also. This is one of my favorite things about the movie. Is this kind of difference between the cowboy mythology represented by gay in purse. So percy's what we would think of as a las vegas cowboy show you cowboy. The entertainment kind is riding and rodeo events such as the bull bronco rides and it seems like he has no issue with this style of cowboy. But that's not what he is. He's working cowboy And it's ironic in a sense that guy's style of cowboy in would fade into nonexistence and purses rodeo cowboys would become even more popular throughout the seventies and eighties and they eventually became recognized. As professional sports that began to get televised looked up the classification of certain weston's around this period and there was the revisionist western and the neo waste and they were sub-genre of the western and the the latter of these is reflected as reflecting the traditions of the western film genre but set in the contemporary american west. And i'd say the misfits fits into that The revisionist western is defined as a sub-genre that subverts the standard full metal theme of the western including morally ambiguous storylines without clear heroes where the concept of rotten wrong became blood in the world. Where actions could no longer be said to be good or bad. I think it fits into that as well but maybe i guess that's a little more specific. The film deals with john. Luke what did you say at the start of the movie that this was classified as genre. Wise arousing action adventure.

"About how he was a bomber pilot in world war two and in that same scene roslin makes this easily missed bit of dialogue where she says a girlfriend of mongols smashed up in a car. She had black hair. And so there's all these like bits of these people in their traumas just constantly butting up against each other and it's very About being missed. Because i think that's quite purposeful isn't it's kind of like which trying to connect or trying to connect we're trying to know each online for some reason slips away when not kasana worrying about something else but we just contract. Connect that scene in the car where he sort of threatening her by going so fast and she says just say hello gedo. 'cause the truth is that they're not connecting and when he says i just want you to say hello what he's really saying is i want you to look at me. I want you to think of me. Consider me see me. And a lot of the dialogue is like that where it kind of almost slips into abstract surrealist kind of dialogue but optima was literary author. He was you know if you go into a movie written by literary autho then you've got to expect some of this stuff you've got to expect some of this subtexts that he included the movie that made it to the screen is in itself pretty remarkable because as as you quite surrealists. Then isn't it. It's not a really stick bill parts of it. Definitely a surrealist. Yeah but then you get this horse wrangling scene which is so realistic Her do you think is the most touching character. Fear in the film For me it's clark gable. I can't help but think of the fine breath. Saying montgomery clamp always sticks in. My head is a very touching zane and also one of the war. Really stick saying you know for me. It is purse as well. I think i have more sympathy or more touched by purse because he doesn't have a lot of self awareness whereas gable does and he can get there whereas you feel like purse is just this horribly batted person. He was obviously fighting bullfighting and had been latched onto his girlfriend and a couple of nights and then he had this disastrous full and ended up in hospital. He never saw them again and before that we know that he was kicked off of his own property because his father died his mother remarried and then that men turned around and offered purse wages. So he's someone who's been very exploited exploited for money he's He's given his body to sort of have relationships and make friends. And yeah that we've seen is just so touching because he's trying to manage it by closing the doors at. They don't hear certain things he other things and it's at it's hopeless. There will just sitting in the car. They could hear every word. he saying. The freighter for me and victoria and donald george. Okay say hello to him to know. Ma ma it. It just slipped my mind. That's all well. okay. I'm saying it now. You married him. I didn't so listen. Maybe call your christmas time. Okay i mean just building on now i have to. I have to do a little bit about i. Guess the roslyn carter torri Say that. I didn't connect with her. Like i think would act. Probate was just sort of thing where you just feel a lot of what he doesn't says it who's actually sort of toll wanna be between how people want to take care of her and agile and heroin they give she gives people kind of happiness and harpen near joy even if it is in her mind or any for a very short period of time and so then i can get the sense from her that she feels that she argues that oh she should give that and not withhold that from from the people in life but then equally it served frustrating Draining exhausting is that all i can give is just my physical presence is that a lack of contribute As you say. It's often just in her eyes or had traumas or underneath a line. That didn't wanna take away from. Yeah how impactful that is and Yeah how powerful she she exhibits voice names and how well she does that really in terms of her transition through to the to the end insane where she is finally a shouting across the very sparse desert and adp is very small when we just hear her. You know we get her energy. Robin her physicality are really loved. The little moment where she gets out of the car to untethered the dog and he's looking at how she's kind of playing with the dog and it's sort of in that moment that he makes a decision that wherever they headed. They're headed there together. Like giving presents for divorces now. Why not on the anniversary of divorce. My husband always sends me one potted yellow rose. It'll be nineteen years in july. He never did pay me the alimony. I wouldn't want to put out you know. I was really confused when i first started watching it. Because when tho- meritas character says this is my seventy seventh witness divorced. I'm like what the hell is going on here. Why is she witnessing so many divorces so i didn't realize that in nevada divorce was like a booming industry because at the time in america divorces were fault based and they were heard in open court so people from all over the country away sneak down to reno leaving hotel for six weeks and get a quiet voice with any attention but isabelle which is still meritas character. She really represents the industry that grew around this chink in the legal system. And so you know. Hotels opened restaurants bars. Brothels obviously you've got a lot of deeply unhappy people going to this place and they do want to drink and socialize and forget themselves. And i like the idea that she's just been leasing out this room to all of these damaged women one after the other and that roslin is just this one right now. I also like that she's joyous and she's even sentimental about divorce which really is quite demented. You know she talks about getting the rose from her husband. Every year of the divorce vary absurd. But i like the idea that there's this celebration of withdrawal from others of detachment and that sort of becomes the entire films through line. Yeah it's kind of this misconception that you free whereas it's kind of the cost of breeding my guess so yeah at the beginning of the film we see it as freedom and by the end of the film we see as attract. Dd just come. Yeah it was good wasn't it was about stuff you one part of. The movie are really like as when gay tells her that. She's the saddest girl he's ever met and she says most men say i'm happy. I'm the happiest girl and he goes. No that's just because you make them feel happy and apparently that was a real exchange between on monroe and the first time they met at the start of the movie it's alive wallich. That first makes contact with maryland. Isn't it a out of out of the two main. yep i mean clearly. He likes Who wouldn't But guy he comes alone awhile his kind of pushed to the side but it also adds to. I guess the reading of the start of the movie and gays character.

"So what do we think about. You know the idea of miller having written this role of roslyn and it so clearly patented on maryland herself. I have very mixed feelings about this When you watched boom and you know about the relationship inner A couple of things. It feels very personal. Obviously end like milla was on friday to her. In in this way and you know i can understand how the the feeling would be will. Gosh what invasive thing to do to someone inner city. Sorry private here. These light bear on screen. And you can presume that. There are a lot of judgments in that right like with her. You know she's them looking in the mirror. At the first time we met her and she's practicing lines with a cold case any nari that his renown not ever knowing any headline they sort of think is he is such a direct stab at her in our is is in putting this out there that she's just a ditzy haina difficult to work with airy fairy vague human any something off. My gosh is this person. Lumps doesn't in. How how dan is this how he would cheese to portray or is he blind to what he's doing he doesn't even realize it that's what he's doing and then there's this other lens which is does he just love all of those parts of does he Human and beautiful in the imperfection fragility and why do we look down on those traits. In the way that we just he may have simply saying them as symptoms of her anxiety. And what the system has done to her. Maybe that they need to be highlighted for those reasons and understood that saying that you point out where she's by addressing one for me is very meter sticks. The other one that sticks out is wearing leader. Opens up the cupboard door and sees the glam aford of merrill lynch keeps pushing the door close to say. I'm not that person. I'm this person now. I'm the serious actress and that feels as well like a little bit of a is it is arthur miller kind of making a joke here or look. I think you're right. I think he was an author that always searched for the truth like all good authors. Do we know that one of the reasons. The mill monroe romance fizzled. So quickly was because after they got married i think they went to england to shoot to prince and the showgirl and he went with maryland and while she was there she found some writing that that was very confronting and painful and actually portrayed in that movie with michelle williams that she finds this writing. No one actually knows what the writing was like. We haven't it hasn't been saved but it was just some journaling. That miller had done and that was sort of the first chink in their marriage. She she she looked at it as a retrial was much of a betrayal as as you can have a marriage and so then the misfits feels like some sort of weird extension of that and for her to agree to do. It is is is amazing. But i'm really glad she did. Because as you say. This movie is a totally different. Kind of marilyn monroe. I think she's almost not perfect. I think there's a couple of scenes where she isn't the performances aren't flawless. I think gable's performance is and i think cliffs performances and ice one saying that a ways That aren't love. I do love is is when clark gable's drunk and calling after his son Entities maryland in that saying that goes often made as in too melodramatic. And i do wonder if it's because in contrast to clock able deny that that's what makes it sort of see county because i think he is so good germ and it's so and such a departure from his normal rose and she comes in sort of like will liking earn some Just feels too much joshi second. They're in competition screams like he's fallen off a building full of a car. It's interesting to see the difference between the acting styles and you know. Montgomery clift represents his his inclusion in this movie represents a different era. In what do you mean. Sorry that montgomery clift. Was you know the hollywood studio system way more. So than most people. He was a product of that that gable or cliff. Sorry clark gable. Yeah yes sorry. I've always had a really difficult time coming up with the woods to describe the period during which movie was made. Because you do have the golden age of hollywood in the thirties and the forties. And you have the new hollywood independent era coming in the light sixties and that gap in the middle. It's not so well defined and this is kind of the perfect film for that moment. When they will making the film that they knew how confusing it would be to audiences of that time other things because it really is more of a soccer drama than really. I don't think people knew how to process it. Certainly if you send an audience member and with the expectation they're going to have a rousing fun time and then you've got this downbeat talkie dark depressing movie about dying. This is coming especially in the era of like lawrence of arabia and the bridge on the river in those genre defying picks the kind of work on every level So whatever you go. Therefore you're gonna fight with whoever goes to see those movies you're gonna find something to enjoy about it Whether it be the interpersonal relationships whether it be the the sheer action the drama and the misfits is the other. I know what it is but it is. It is like a vision of those while trying to also kind of fit into that and the other thing is that breakfast at tiffany's came out this same samia. An audience must have just been like what happened. Maryland was meant to be in breakfast and instead she's in this dark black and white film which is not especially romantic. Definitely not funny. Of course breakfast ended up grossing three times as much as the misfits was maryland. Supposed to be in breakfast. Tiffany's well truman capote wanted head obey and was vocal about it. Run the too good representations of a nation. Even breakfast at tiffany's deals with that same very well brad. Stevens is really about. A main character remains completely detached in order to stay emotionally and physically safe. And that's what everyone's doing in nevada. That's what film. Meritas doing clark gable purse. We see how they go to these broken relationships purse with his mother gay with his children alive wallet with his his dead wife who died because he didn't have a spare. It's dealing with the same subject but in a totally different white and breakfast at tiffany's has the hopefulness at the end. Yes i may not look. I would disagree. The the misfits has done. I think it has some. I think the last scene is quite beautiful hopeful world.

"By the lot the beauty the sexuality haven't had you educate yourself your god's country now. It's a really interesting clever choice of houston's to hold off on giving us any wide shots i know arthur miller had a big problem with that author. Mila one of more ward shots. Yeah he wanted the desolate -ness of the desert the dead -ness of it to be better exploited Which houston chose not to do. I think marilyn's could a good balance between empathy and strength in this film. So there's a lot of empathy when she's one sane is you and i watched it last night. Where she's listening to guidos talk about her his wife who's now deceased but there's also a strength. She's not she's not swayed by the things that guy he says often she she will teach him so she's got like there's an element of stand by your man just as much as there. Is that element of teaching. When he knew just live live by going to sleep. You get up when you feel like scratches out you. Fry yourself some age. What kind of a day. It is throw stones at a can worship. She's almost somebody who who can't bear the sadness of the external world who who isn't strong enough for it yet at the same time there's this kind of inner strength that comes out in that same talking about when she finally lets go but throughout the film i find her to be almost not implausible but i find her position to be implausible in the context of the whole strangling. I think that it's less ludicrous. Won't maryland is saying. Because i believe the film shows through that whole sequence. That kind of lifestyle is is. Is oliver whole wrangling. Is a dead industry. Gives go to look at those contemporary terms as well. And i think it's a little less radical what she's saying when you do that and i think the film does a good job of also creating gay as this character who is Stuck in time. He's got his Beliefs nothing changes that and then along comes maryland and things stop to change that for the first time in his life. i think the scene of him wrangling. That final horses really powerful because a lot of the people of the men in this movie are hanging onto this old school masculine. Ideal of like horse riding man lives off the land and that's the only way they knew how to beam in and so when gay is hanging onto that stallion at the end. It's him trying to hang onto himself. Is like that last ditch effort to sort of hang on but finally he has to let it go. I think in owning sixty one. It probably wasn't as touching as it is now. Because i think everybody was at that. Point was quite enchanted with urbanized living modern appliances modern technology heim appliances. And we look at it now. And i think it resonates a bit more. What now you catch them for going. Nobody making up my mind for me. That's damning munoz's changed. It changed it all around smear on over with blood. I'm finished with it. Like open. -treme now i just gotta find another way to be alive. That's all there is one anymore. Well i think that thing is is particularly powerful because he actually finishes tying up that holes before letting it go. Yeah so it is kind of like this is my last ride. That said that's how it feels and feels especially that way because it was gable's last ride. Yeah.

"She won't be there so damian. What did you. what did you think of the misfits. When did you say. I thought i had seen the misfits before but watching it for this podcast. I realized that. I had seen part of it or see none of it at all so really. I watched it for the first time about a month a month and a half ago and i really liked i mean. I've seen a few john huston movies but mostly his stuff from the forties. Not so familiar with his. I guess middle career which is where the misfits would sit and the marilyn monroe movies. That i've seen like niagara and had a marry a millionaire and those kinds of movies are obviously very different from the misfits. I've seen a few montgomery cliffs and a few clark gable's but a game The clock gables would be those earlier films as well so really. I guess this was a new experience for me. And i was going in at sea going into this movie watching the way that people would have been watching unfamiliar with some unlike clark gable. So if maybe they'd heard of his reputation in his early movies. And you see this person who's completely different in this film and also you know it was very impressive very impressive seeing marilyn monroe a film like this. Yeah i think. You're right about clark gable. It's a very different role for him. He's usually very suave. We think of him as being sort of a social elite whereas here. He's playing a homeless drifter. Who's caught up in some romantic idea of the old west and isn't contemporary and he's very vulnerable here. Yeah and i think you also think of guy blue being in control Certainly in it happened one night which i guess was his first. His biggest film to that point He was in control of that. A guy in gone with the wind. He was very strong figure as well. Um whereas in the misfits he is a little bit Needed by his love for marilyn and ultimately a little bit. I guess Changed by her. Which is something you don't usually see from his characters or at least didn't in those reputable films that he might early on and he's the only character that really changes. Yeah i mean. I think they will have their journeys And i think they all have emotional changes throughout the movie largely against their own. Will you know you see these characters. Who pretty i guess in a stupid sense that set in their ways but they do change emotionally through the film kasa. What about you. You saw this film many years ago. I didn't you. Yes or when i was teenager when i was trying to see as many marilyn monroe booms coolidge. So i remember when i first are Maybe dane or something like that six game in I was confused by it. Like i liked it but felt so out of place from everything. Else i was watching from the sixties or fifties at that time and obviously because of the meaner maryland's demography to that point you know surrounding. That was very very different comedies and She was brilliant in hurries. And so when i watched this was in that context and i remember sending on thinking. It was a bad film or anything like that. I was intrigued by. But i couldn't lean into it as much somehow. It sort of felt like i was struggling. But yet what you get for these. Podcasts had a very different experience an indictment that's a reflection may or reflection on the time at which has watching it. I don't know about you. But i feel a bit voyeuristic watching it sort of that feeling of kind of really seeing someone and i think i i feel that for the clock able card Gosh like they really putting everything out there in a way that feels quite invasive from my perspective i feel like awesome really seeing them in a way in which you haven't seen them expires in that way before on sorry felt very. I felt very close to them in watching this and very empathetic to their experiences. Just cut off the plane. I'm not too late. Am i just give me five minutes after two years. Five minutes south carolina. That's all i'm not naming you. It's i never looked at any different. I just leave it hoping anymore. I understand i understand. Stand raymond going to be alone. I wanna be by myself. I think a lot of people probably saw the film initially or a lot of people who don't like the film maybe look at it as a little. Bit like an indulgent acting class. Because obviously it's very plot lewis and the characters are written to their written for actors to act the way that united artists tried to sell the film. You would have people would have gone in thinking that they were going to see the searches or something like that and instead they get this downbeat movie plot lewis and very sad and the film evokes death author miller said this is about life viewed from the lip of the grave. 'cause it's not like they're lost and then they're found turn or they're lonely and old connect it's kind of it doesn't give you any of that relief at all. In that sense. I think it was massively ahead of its time in that. It didn't give up the audience that relief when it was with that mccue spoke about a it was a poll of strasbourg. Yeah what what dramatic roles did marilyn monroe do before the misfits which she did niagara bus stop. Don't bother to knock knock yeah. She uses sexuality law in like even in niagara as seductive victim villain. Yeah and she. It's certainly not disguised here. Autho it's used by the film and it's part of her angst isn't as it's part of. What makes her. yeah tragic character. Do you feel like she gets a bit of a social justice platform in this film as well. The film's climactic murderers speech it. It is a little bit of a social justice platform for maryland. That's a really interesting shot. Because moisture of the misfit is used he uses mid shots we get a lot of shots of maryland's body her her bust line Her bottom the pingpong scene is very much about maryland's body and watching maryland's body but In that final scene where. She's just screaming at them. She just becomes adopt. And so we don't get the destruction of the body we just get those words which are the condemning words. But they're also words about her pain. We can actually see her by not seeing her. Because we're not distracted.

I guess it would be easier on your standards. I think this movie had a plot. I mean it had a pretty easy plot to follow until they start throwing in all the weird mystical shit here on wikipedia under plot. Do you want me to even start. Is there a succinct way that you can just kind of know condensed forests. No they said that. The the one of the ships was called morgan. 'thus i thought that was the plan. It oh no no no.

And dropping it off at the drop box down their city hall. They used the drop box. I'm just telling you, it's what people and I get that. But I'm saying is that you know, it makes it sound like somehow using the Postal Service is not going to have your vote counted. I'm not saying that I'm saying right now, when they're delays, many voters choose this. But by the way, let's go back. But I support what Franklin Rose is doing. It's what Ohio had every year for years. This is not some news, not having stamps on the balance would be the news we've had that year after year. Three idea that we may not have. It is one other way that like it's getting again. It's not the end of the world, but it's a problem. It's the first time in years we do not have stamps on balance. We've always had them. John Huston had them every time. So I mean, of course, I support it because that's how we've always done it. But again, there's no it's not either or this is we have a pandemic. Everyone has having to rethink everything. The idea that we can't have both drop boxes. And stamp sing. Why wouldn't we do that? You know, it's a It's a pretty easy. Yeah, I agree. I just Here's here's my fear. And I, You know, I've been doing this long enough to know Here's what happens is Donald Trump loses the election. It's voter fraud, even though you can very rarely find a case of voter fraud. I mean, it happens, but it's extreme, but you're more likely hit by lightning if Donald Trump wins the election. I don't want to hear about this in franchise I want hear about how we couldn't get to the polls getting on the ballot box. Quit my vote counted, like go. You know what? Vote early If you care, of course, But let's say there are 10 day delays. In the mail, and I hope they're not. We need to keep me keep a close eye on that will be tested it you know if if Have a bunch of people do not get their absentee ballot until a couple weeks ago because it takes him 10 days to get it. And then they do what a good citizen does take couple of days ago through it, And then they stick it back in the mail, and it goes to Detroit gets lost some Where is that fair that they lost? Their vote didn't go in when they were relying on the Postal Service. No, so we have to make sure That the posted system is working. We're fighting for that, and we want to give options like drying and it's a reasonable risk. If you have that fear than David, one vote days to go, right and they've read about the postal system of thinking, listen. I have my ballot in my hand. I'm worried about the postal system because of the laser longer. I'd rather just go down to a drop box. Why not give them that secure? Safe, Easy way to vote. Total count. So point the way to the last minute that's on you, That's on anybody else. And if you're that concerned, then go vote in person. But what if it took two weeks to come? Because it's so alright but again, and that's the risk. You're assuming as someone who you know. You have the right, Tio exercise your vote, and we should make it as easy as possible. Unfair, But there's got to be some accountability for the person waiting were lacerated to do it Their courses, But right now, you literally had the president say two weeks ago. Two of the country that is literally the reason they're doing. These changes of the postal system is to mess with the delivery of absentee ballots. He said. That to the country, so at some point, there's accountability there to agree. You can blame the voter for being worried about the mail system. Or you can blame the president for telling or you could just go. You know what? Screw that guy. I'm going to go vote right now. It's not like she's going to do If you heard that one defended some, like he's going to do anything in the next two months to change change, you know who you're voting for. Hey, David, I've got to get going. Removed already from the Cincinnati postal system, right because they've been we've been doing that before the election. It's a separate topic. The goal was to mess with that balance delivered. So why not have a system again? Well, I don't know. Even Yes, we have a system. Just mail the damn ballot and her show up early.

"Thank you. Joe? Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. So we're getting a little more word from the CDC. How we shaping up this flu season so far? Well, I tell you we're we're really ramping up now. Unfortunately, flu season, always assign. We are entering the depths of winter. And that's what's going on now. But the good news is it doesn't look like it's going to be as bad as last year when we just had a an horrific flu season with. Almost eighty thousand people dying nationwide because flu and its complications. And almost a million people hospitalized as well. A little bit later start to the flu season. But the last couple of weeks Joel it has really ramped up with a number of flu cases nationwide. Almost doubling so right now across the country wide spread flu activity reported in twenty four states, and there have been thirteen pediatric deaths. Many of those not back Sonate. But in Ohio right now, we're seeing some regional activity northeast Ohio is the hardest hit thus far. But again, it is really being beginning to pick up steam now, and there is still time to get that vaccination. If you want to I in one of the good news items here is that it appears that the scientists who try to predict what the following seasons strains will be when they work on the vaccine have hit it pretty good. Because what we're seeing so far is to variants of these wine flu h one n one and h three and two and those are the ones that are included in. Most of the vaccines is here. So it looks like the vaccine should be effective. And you do still have time to get it. Yeah. I know it seems like every time I have a touch with any healthcare professional. It's always I cave. You had the flu shot. Do you want the flu shot for me? It's always wash my hands a little bit more than normal, and it seems to work out. Okay. But when Bill when you talk about the CDC is there, any new guidance at all, or is it still the very young the very old, and you know, just if you feel ill, stay home. So you don't spread it around. Yeah. That's it. And you mentioned it the washing the hands has big. But their big thing is yet get the vaccination because most of the people who have serious complications are the young and the old, and it should be mentioned that there are versions of the vaccine now Joel that are specifically designed for those sixty five and above. It's a little bit of a higher dose. So ask about that. If you go to your doctor also people might say, hey, I can't get the vaccine I'm allergic to eggs because it is an egg-based vaccine while there is now an egg free version. So those people can get. And there's a nasal spray that if you're somehow averse to getting an injection others. A nasal spray version, and suppose you do end up coming down with the flu after all this.
