The Marlboro Woman
"Before the Marlboro Man. Before the Marlboro woman. Even women didn't really smoke. In fact in some places. It was even illegal to help me tell that story. I wrote Aria Bendix into the studio with me. I'm already so on. It gets toasted here as well too. So cool cool. So why don't we start? Warriors a reporter at business insider. Who's covered the history of smoking and Marlborough? Why don't we start at the turn of the century? What was the association between women and smoking so there was a strong negative association between women and smoking. It was not something that polite woman did. There was a lot of societal disapproval. That was definitely the big thing but there was also a few legal attempts to sort of prohibit women from smoking in public in nineteen. Oh four there was a woman who was actually turned in by her husband for smoking in the presence of her children and she faced thirty days of jail. Time for that and then a few years later There's actually a short-lived ban in New York City that prohibited women from smoking in public. So it really was. Smoking was really seen as not a thing. That a lady. Oh well raised woman would do woman of good moral standing. So then what changed? So what changed was World War One inside the White House. President Woodrow Wilson compared with advisors then signed the proclamation of war against Germany and that was really when women started to take on up. Actually enter the workforce for the first time and take on jobs that were traditionally says he'd with men behind every man or the woman at American women were daintily mightily and they also changed their appearance to reflect that so women started to have shorter hair started to wear pants and then they also started to pick up cigarettes by one thousand. Nine hundred thousand American women had won the right to vote but even within the Feminist Movement for some smoking was taboo. Some of the activists for women's rights actually went to great lengths to distance themselves from women who smoked Lucy. Page Gaston for example was a vocal opponent of smoking and drinking alcohol. She wasn't trying to ally herself with women who were redefining femininity. Instead she wanted to empower women who embodied the old Victorian ideals of womanhood who would use their vote to advocate for temperance and respectability and enforce their high moral standards on the broader population. So where does the story of Marlboro Start? So it starts with Philip Morris which used to be British Tobacco Company in the One thousand nine hundred twenty s they really wanted to get a stronger foothold in the US market so they came up with the idea of the Marlboro Brand and in nineteen twenty four. The introduced it as a cigarette brand for women. Nineteen twenty four was a really tough time for a newcomer to be making a play for the US cigarette market at all. Never Mind Marketing to women. That's because it was already pretty locked down by four big tobacco companies. Actually there used to be one gigantic company a monopoly until the US Supreme Court and a bunch of trust. Busting Congressman. Put a stop to that in the nineteen teens. Anyway by the Nineteen Twenties Marlboro. Was this small fish making its debut and upon full of. I'm just GONNA go with this great white sharks so it set its sights on the other. Small fish in the cigarette pond women and since suffragettes Lucy Page Gaston. Were not going to light up anytime soon. Marlboro had to find a way to make smoking socially acceptable for women. It had to make cigarettes. Which many saw as symbols of vulgarity and promiscuity actually feminine by Victorian Standards So one of the first advertisements that they came out with was this quote unquote mild as May campaign may like the month of May delicate breezy dainty elegant for find polite. And there's something amazing about how Marlboro. Sins that message through these ads. Like if you look at them. The women picture aren't even smoking but it almost doesn't because they look so glamorous every one of them sort of had like this dark lib this perfectly quaffed hair. The secret was sort of daintily hanging off their fingertips looking a little bit seductive but it was also somewhat reminiscent of the Victorian ideals of Amenity. That sort of caring us into the nineteen twenties. You see this sort of stereotype of a lady. A very elegant woman that marble woman is basically like the Modern Day Portland of instagram influence. Our I mean everything that women sort of wanted and aspire to be mild is may was everything. A woman could want in a cigarette. The ads made it look like an essential accessory as natural a woman's hand as the lipstick on her lips. There was a lot of concern that women's lipstick would actually get at the end of their cigarette. So what they did was actually create a grease proof tip that would prevent that and it would keep your lipstick looking nice while you were smoking after that. They also introduced a red rim around the cigarette and that was meant to disguise the lipstick itself. We are miles away from the Marlboro Man. Here that even his Marlboro and its parent company. Philip Morris continued to work on making it cigarette look appealing to women. It had a bigger obstacle to tackle. Most women did not know how to smoke. So Philip Morris sponsored. A lecture series that toured the country and taught women the basics. It hit ladies clubs charm. School's department stores and nurses lounges covering etiquette had opened the packages avoid lipstick smears and prevent fires. Oh my God and slowly but surely marbles efforts started to make inroads so the advertisements are resonating with women Marlboros. Getting letters from women thanking them for the ADS. More women are starting to pick up smoking. But it's actually not doing much for the brand itself. It was pretty much failing as a business they were capturing a miniscule portion of the cigarette market at that time turns out. Marlboro. Wasn't the only cigarette company on the block with the bright idea of advertising to women in fact the American Tobacco Company one of the four giants which used to have a monopoly on cigarettes. It wanted to get women to smoke. Just as badly as Marlboro did and its main brand. Lucky strike was a much bigger name than Marlboro. The president of the American Tobacco Company poured about one point five billion dollars in today's dollars into advertisements in the first decade of the lucky advertisements. So they were funneling money into the brand and that sort of reflected in that sales they were sort of catering to everyone and they saw the same opportunity. Marble did that. They weren't actually targeted advertisements to half of the population which was women so they put out a lot of the same messaging. That Marlboro did a lot of that. Same like feminine ideals of Beauty. They weren't a woman's cigarette brand but they certainly began catering their advertisements to women but nineteen twenty nine both companies had been running ads featuring women for years. Marlboro had even gone so far as to show a woman in one of the advertisements. Actually smoking a cigarette. Just holding it seductively. But even that wasn't enough so to break through the negative by surrounding women in cigarettes once and for all the American Tobacco Company launched another offensive. And this one would below the politics of women's smoking wide. Open the president of the American Tobacco Company calls up this Guy Edward Brenes and he's now known as the father of Public Relations and he was actually fun fact. The nephew Sigmund Freud and so- Bernez comes up with this idea to stage a protest in New York City he recruits all. These debutantes who sort of look like the everyday woman but they're also super elegant and he gets them to basically marched through the streets of New York on the Easter Day parade carrying lit cigarettes in their hand and he called the the torches of freedom so cigarettes were known as the torches of freedom the Easter parade. One of the most important events on New York City's social calendar. Women were there to be seen. They were the newest fashions. Their boldest hats and stranded down Fifth Avenue. Like it was a runway. It was such a cultural touchstone. The American composer Irving Berlin even wrote a song about it and it became the basis for a nineteen thirty three. Judy Garland Fred astaire movie new the grandest Bala Anyway crashing. This event was a big deal and the torches of freedom the woman marching down Fifth Avenue in their finery carrying lit cigarettes. That image caught fire. It was a huge news story and it sort of kicked off the idea of women smoking in public really. Yeah I mean I see it as sort of the fulcrum to change the social tied women in other cities as well not just New York City but now San Francisco and Detroit. Were now taking the streets and smoking their cigarettes or torches a free. They had their own torches. Afraid of

Parasite's best picture triumph could begin a new era for the Oscars
"For the first time in the history of the Academy Awards a foreign language film has won the Oscar for Best Picture Paris only to south Korean black comedy also won Best Director for bone June hope in the main acting categories there were no real surprises with winds hawking Phoenix and Renee Zellweger but just how significant is parasites achievement just before we came on air I spoke to Tom brook in Hollywood it is seen as a pivotal moment perhaps in the academy's history it speaks to the growing power of international cinema and we have because of the economy has made in the last few years to diverse supply its membership to bring in more international film professionals and this could well be reflected in the results that we got tonight which was parasite winning the Best Picture Best Director best into international feature and best original screenplay yeah it was it was a dominant performance at perhaps a bit of a surprise but in terms of the the main acting Casseres I suppose the win as well the people we expect yes with the actors I mean I I should just back up for moments to say what was great about parasites it was announced that made for exciting viewing because with the acting categories it was very predictable Joaquin Phoenix one for his performance in the film joka Renee Zellweger one the playing Judy Garland and Judy Brad Pitt one for his role in once upon a time in Hollywood his supporting role and Laura Dern one for her supporting role in marriage story and does the fact that in a foreign language film won Best Picture it is that perhaps goes some way to to meet the complaints of those who said it wasn't a very diverse set of nominations perhaps but I I I think that our site was really well light to the piece of cinema it was very adventurous still making so I think it was voted full on those merits in a way and people really light phones you info here in Los Angeles as he was on the awards circuit in the run up to the office he has a very winning personality and so do members of his costs and I think that had a powerful effect on people as well so it may well let's waste some complaints about the lack of enterprise in diversity with the other nominees and briefly that was a bit of politics in in some of the acceptance speeches yes read it made a reference to the fact that John Bolton wasn't allowed to testify last week in the Senate impeachment hearings and Joaquin Phoenix made an impassioned political speech about human beings not exploiting one and all that indigenous people and the universe our correspondent Tom Burke took me from the red carpet outside the award ceremony in Los

The Frame Oscar Special
"Are ready. Let's do it. Welcome to the frame Oscar special from KPCC in Los Angeles. Welcome to the one million breath and the Oscar goes to and the Oscar goes to and the Oscar goes to get anybody. I'M GONNA find you're GONNA give you. Massive snow snowed. Everybody who bought a ticket told somebody to buy a ticket. Thank you I love you if I may be so honored to have all all the female nominees and every category stand with me in this room tonight the actors Maryland you do it everybody else will come on all right all right all right. I'm John Horn host to the frame and joining me is Jacqueline coli editor at Ron Tomatoes Jacqueline. Thanks for being with us. Thanks for having me John so I know we're only a couple seconds in certified fresh so far. I think you're doing great. You're certified fresh and honestly I would say all the best picture nominees are also pretty awesome. It's probably the highest average on the tomato meter of best picture nominees. We've had in a while so I'm excited to talk about these phones. So let's start with probably the top story. I think of this year's Oscar race twenty acting nominees. One person of Color Cynthia Revo who stars as Surrey Tubman and Harriet. Yeah I'M NOT GONNA lie was extremely disappointed. When I watched each array and John Show read out the nominees few weeks ago? But I wasn't surprised actually just wrote an an article rotten tomatoes discussing this when you talk about the ninety two years of the history of the academy. There's only been thirty. Five Black Women nominated and twenty one of them have been for playing a slave a maid or woman in abject poverty it is an alarming and slightly depressing trend. I would say in the academy's Tastes And when you have performances from Octavia. CBS Spencer and loose Alfre woodard clemency. Jaylo in four inch heels giving us all she could for Hustler's and Aquafina further for well. It's really really alarming for you to say to yourself that this is where we are at the state of the academy. I'm going to hope that this year. We can have parasite as a moment if it wins. Best picture that we can say. We're moving forward. But again Cynthia being the only nominee it's It's a bit depressing parasite. I think has a legitimate chance to win the best picture. Oscar Oscar Think Bong Jun ho who directed and Co wrote. It could win director as well if it wins. The top prize the first foreign language movie in Academy History to take that prize. That is important in its own right regardless of the fact that none of its actors were nominated for performing in it. Yeah and it's also again a trend unfortunately with the academy there have been six previous best picture. Nominations from Asian cinema where none of the actors were honored with an acting nomination and unfortunately parasite kept with that trend this year here however We keep a track at our wars leaderboard and rotten tomatoes dot com of all of the winds of all of the films that are in the conversation and parasite has dominated with over a hundred in twenty five wins and to give you sort of a relative idea. The next winds is at seventy one. So parasite has been dominating with critics groups and with these these various guilds so it's poised to maybe take home the top prize but it really depends on the academy's taste and what those nine thousand members feel about the film later in the show. We're GONNA talk talk about the best picture race. We're also going to hear from some of the directors of some of the best picture nominees including Greta. Gerwig made little women was not nominated for best director. Sam Mendes from one thousand nine hundred seventeen and Bon John Hoult from parasite. But we'll start this Oscar party with some leading actresses three of the five nominees in this category had add the particular challenge of playing real people on Screen Cynthia Rio sharply staring and Renee Zellweger. Who Plays Judy Garland in Judy Yukon? There's an audience other ways. It hears you sing my mouth driving. It was judy takes place in the late. One thousand nine hundred sixty judy. Garland's career is floundering. She's struggling with sobriety. She goes to England perform at a London nightclub and Joplin one thing that surprised me. was that renee. Zellweger wasn't convinced that she could actually pull off as part. I wish I think is so crazy. That's Texas girls for you as a Texas girl I can say we're like deprecating on our talent and always like underestimate ourselves but she absolutely murdered murdered this role I remember. I woke up right in early at the tyrod film festival to watch. Her sort of embody. Judy Garland for this role and it was so I would say mesmerizing.
Oscars 2020: who will have the biggest night?
"Are the Oscars are this weekend who are you rooting for anybody on your list I like once upon a time in Hollywood I just thought that was a great film I love the cast awesome stuff several nominations for that film bills worker is joining us now long time energy reporter for the sun times still with five Chicago is a contributor and bill has followed many many many Oscars lot but you know I always loved about you bill you you follow the local entertainment scene so well and always told us such interesting nuggets about what was going on here well that's true I've always loved you know I mean I think that's important I think it as we all know how they moved in this world of of the current the twenty first century media I think local local local is the way to cope in general because I think that's what people really want to get because they can get you know the national stories from other outlets but but this is an interesting year at all well it's always interesting with the Academy Awards although I do think in certain categories is here there's there's some things that are pretty well said but I know we think of course they're going to go again this year without it without a without a whole list which I don't think it's a terrible thing I think you know well I'll tell you why I think so often unless you get somebody like Billy crystal who's always knocks the you know the ball out of the park I think over the years I think will be colder did a good job we recently had our critic's guide Bible to the critics choice awards which of the broadcast broadcast critics and you know we had two days he did a wonderful job and I think because he didn't try to overdo it you know came out was charming and didn't you know try to be too cute but I think sometimes I think people want to see who's going to win they want to see the presenters I don't think they want a lot of big production numbers and all those give me some wonderful musical numbers at the Oscars you know your health Elton John performing in and you know it's gonna be really quite quite wonderful in the court system the result of a few people who really are talented musically but it's gonna be interesting to see what happens on Sunday I can say I disagree too but I'd like the host I guess you're right but what okay what is a good host was a good house because right some of the host I kind of remember the Anne Hathaway that was a disaster and as much as I loved you know but she yeah I do too but she what that wasn't right for her at all and James Franco I think the the combo wasn't right and that yeah then they tried to do so many acts that an already long ceremony got longer and longer right letterman was not successful either you know so I mean and and I love him but I mean I just it's just a very tough job I will say that so I think sometimes a safe way to go is with out the host and we'll see how it goes David Letterman wasn't wanted the Oprah uma uma Oprah right rumors were rolling their eyes he's like I got to go and I got a key thing is we we didn't work we actually have some audio here from Billy crystal because he was just on Jimmy Kimmel okay crystal has hosted the Oscars I think nine times total nine times jingle himself is hosted the Oscars twice yes yeah he did a good job he did so the two of them had thoughts about the hostess Oscars here's here's what they had to say I always loved being out there I I loved the guess the trusts you know that the movie academy had a made to to get me out that I always I felt like there was a great honor to do it and I think that when you have a show that's as long as it is is going to happen and I think the problem with the no hosting perhaps is that there's not somebody out there to capitalize on that moment ledge view had when the wrong Best Picture right who could forget that the one that's right but he does make a good point there he does make a good point that you can can bring it into the moment and and capitalize on it that is a very good point I hadn't thought of that someone says something that you can sort of have fun with right that just sort of right out there and then they bring it back and make everybody sort of laugher connect over that moment we just had a listener say six three oh what about the la la land fiasco that would be weird without a host because sort of look at each other like what that would that would have been terrible and and then on a lighter note I mean it's great when you have somebody you know when when Jack Palance remember that the one arm push up you know on the sages many years ago and of course and you know Billy came out and made a great joke about it because you know those are the things that you love love to see happen yeah my favorite also I think was on my list of favorites I should say Ellen DeGeneres remember that a normal than the selfie she took and then when she was busting Steven Spielberg around a telephone tell take the picture you know when I could change my point of view you're either going to go maybe on your side your honor but you know I heard you it coming in when you talk about once upon a time in Hollywood that really was one of my favorite favorite movies of the year I see like bill if this one is sort of got a little bit of an unfair advantage because it seems like one of those movies that people in the industry natural sort of are drawn to because it has history of historical factor I know it's sort of a bag I would love to see it with but it's it's one of my favorite but I think all of the momentum seems to be from the directors guild of the producers guild all of the different wards have been happened sounds like it's going to be nineteen seventeen which I liked very much but technically it had some incredible you know incredible beautiful moments but my favorite if I was going to pick one it would be once upon a time in Hollywood or parasite which of course is going to win trust me it's gonna win best foreign film the people that are further further Oscar parties if they want to fill out there if you get if you get some of those lesser known categories right you can win the Oscar Poole I've no I bet it's true that's a good strategy that's true yes I have eight one five Oscars praying for no politics I need a break yeah what do you think we all do I think we all do and I think that will be that's one thing that I hope we do have because I think after what we've all gone through in this country in the last few weeks I think yes no politics is a very good suggestion but it's interesting because in terms of all the acting categories I think they're pretty well locked into a whole I think it is going to win and I think most people do what do you think what you got for best supporting actress I think well that's what the one category where there could be a surprise in the usually is a surprise the one category excuse me would be best supporting actress because even though most people think it's gonna be Laura Dern was terrific as a divorce lawyer in marriage story you know who could possibly slip in there because he has won a few things as far as people from little women who played one of the daughters and that's one category but I do think it's gonna be Laura Dern for best Supporting Actor it's Brad Pitt as one everything is beloved by many people in Hollywood you know it's sort of his his year in his time and I think that's a pretty much of a lock in for Best Actress it's it's I think pretty much going to be Renee Zellweger for Judy plank Judy Garland and although I would look I would be disappointed if there was a real real upset here in Jersey ronin from little women one because I think she's terrific but they're all these categories have great nominees and of course for Best Actor again it's probably going to be Joaquin Phoenix because again he won everything so far incredible performance I didn't see G. R. A. Renee Zellweger in Judy but I didn't know that that was not universally loved by critics no it was not what happened there was everybody pretty much loved her I mean I agree with this the movie itself was just sort of you know just so so I think the reason she's basically the nominee the only nominee for that movie there may be a cost and it might be a minor on the minor categories I shouldn't call minor but one of the most popular categories but the movie itself was not great she was what made the movie yeah I you know I I didn't see that because of sort of the reviews the main one that would be worth revisiting because I loved her and that was the online series where she was the rich woman who is trying to convince people a little comes of age is he was a recent series streaming and she was phenomenal and I just remember and she sings herself I mean the fact that she you know somebody's like a voice like garland which everybody knows so well the fact that you do your own singing I think is also a major push any and there's so many scenes in this movie you look and you think it's actually Judy Garland on stage and screen excuse me so I think it's and that's pretty much of a lock but there again you know you never that's pictures that that was one I mean I think it's probably going to be nineteen seventeen but I would be happy with virtually any of those you know that are up there there's nine nominees you know because they changed the rules a few years ago but you know a lot of talk this year the parasite which definitely is gonna win best foreign film it might be the first year that the best foreign film also wins Best Picture that would be somewhat of an upset but that would be a fascinating thing to see what is the Netflix series that Renee Zellweger was and I was trying to remember to remember bill out we only have a minute here but if you if you are going to the movies this weekend as I know some people do when they try to say Hey I'm gonna catch up on some of these Oscar nominated films what what was one of the films you would suggest the probably not many people have gone to I think I don't know I think first of all I think you know probably nineteen seventeen I think it's it's a kind of a tough movie to watch many ways but I think that that that seems to be the front runner for Best Picture if you haven't seen once upon a time in Hollywood definitely catch that and I'll tell you a parasite is be the third one because that is such it's got a real twist to it I can't tell you much and I would give it away but it that would be the film that is probably the one most unique dark comedy that come down the pike in a long time okay you got my attention on that I'm gonna check that one out bills record thank you so much for checking in with us at any time good to hear your voice same

Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood I love you? I think it's time Hollywood to say to Quentin Tarantino. I love you back back. So you've got it watch the show and afterwards we'll have a discussion.

"Aspect of Garland's career would ever eclipse her early success as Dorothy. She was incapable of escaping the film that essentially ruined her life. Meanwhile Louis Louis Mayor maintained a well respected position in Hollywood and politics with MGM Still Producing Films Today and wizard of Oz director Victor Fleming would-be heralded for his work. As the director of Gone With the wind. A box office smash hit. That made him the most wanted director. In Hollywood mm-hmm if anyone deserved to have a career ruined it was fleming. He was a known Nazi sympathizer who was also vocal. About how how much he hated the British later one of his actors and revere who worked with Fleming on the yearling would recall how flagrant he was in his support of Nazi Germany. Yet for whatever reason he was left to hobnob around Hollywood unchecked enjoying an illustrious career while Judy garland battled addiction and abuse Fleming and mayor enjoyed the spoils of smash hit films and for all the horror stories that leaked from the set of of the film. The most horrendous would stay hidden for fifty years around Christmas in nineteen eighty nine. The wizard of Oz was on on television.

Someone somewhere head noticed something that had gone unnoticed unnoticed for more than fifty years as Dorothy the tin man and the scarecrow exit the dark forest for the last time they danced past an eerie shadow. Auto that seems to sway in the wind the shadow it appears is that of a dead body a lifeless corpse swinging. I'm from one of the trees. Someone had hung themselves. The widespread rumor is that it was the body of a Munchkin actor who had fallen in love with one of his fellow Munchkins. But when she didn't return his love he fell into a deep depression no longer able to stand working beside aside her day in and day out knowing she would never love him back. He hung himself well. This story is tragic. It doesn't exactly makes sense. The scenes in the dark forest were filmed before the Munchkin actors ever arrived on set so it would have been impossible for the dead body to have been a Munchkin eventually. A more plausible explanation began to circulate. But the story is even more heartbreaking according according to legend one of the MGM producers had a teenage daughter who was longing to break into show business she loved the Oz books and in big her father to cast her as Dorothy in the film but for whatever reason he refused heartbroken at having lost her dream. Role to Judy Garland Orland. She decided to seek the ultimate revenge against her father and hung herself on the set of his magnum opus. That way he could never watch the movie without seeing the body of his dead daughter hanging lifeless from a tree. It was an act of grizzly horrific. Nick revenge this piece of wizard of Oz. Lore has become the single most famous rumor to spread about the film likely likely because it's gruesome and macab and plays to our most morbid curiosities but thankfully according to a set dresser who worked on the film. It's also completely false. The real story is that a set designer rented four hundred exotic birds to be used during filming several of which escaped improved hard to recapture among them was a rogue crane that made its way to the fake trees onset and it's massive shadow can be seen swaying back and forth during the scene in question even instill. The dark shadow seems to loom over the set like can omen and while some were able to shake the omen after the movie wrapped others like Judy Garland would find the dark shadow. Never quite left. Thanks.

"I think that really comes through in the song to the final lyrics of her introduction are something unlike I'll never forget how Ginette stood there and the ruins and sang because of course the movie San Francisco from which its took from it taken from is it's about the one thousand nine point six earthquake and I think shortly after genetic things that song there is in fact very large earthquake. That quite literally brings down the house yeah net new each other. I don't know if that's what wh- will they weren't. Mgm Together Ob- yeah course but do you know whether or on what their exchanges were anything. I do know that that Genet- always thought of judy as a little girl in culture little judy till the end of her life. Hyphen Judy was only what for eleven yeah so maybe it wasn't purely a resemble that remark well into the five to five feet. I'm taller than Gd but I do. The same sue size apparently a crazy an excuse me. I'm sorry an an uber a a very nice person who falls judy a lot said to me what size shady where I said a five wide and she said that's the same size as the Ruby slippers but I have checked your house. You are not in possession of the missing Ruby slippers. Now I'm not mine are floating hang out there minor fakes from Mark Houston who hired me to do several Judy tributes which are pretty interesting. misting one was the flowerpot lady from You probably know her name. I the major from Lewis I did that one and then we did John Waters Christmas which was kind of surreal. I don't understand that connection between John Waters and Judy Garland but somehow I was in that one to gay iconography uh-huh and then the other one was of course with Lauren left and then I did a couple of other shows with Laura's well so I wanNA ask both both of you what your first kind of encounters with Judy were before we get into the talking about the new film Larry. How did you discover judy. I mean we've talked about how you ended up at the Fan Festival very young you ended up on NPR. Do you remember what the first movie was. That Judy was in that you saw the first moment you kind of became aware of her. Well well. I think as with just about everybody the first movie I saw for it was the wizard of Oz and then me and Saint Louis when I was very young I think it was about four when I taught me mean Saint Louis so she was always a part of me a bit always sort of in the background then when I was ten. It was really was really when it started. My Mom took me to you a Bookstore Book and music store to pick up a tape to listen to on the way up up to Sacramento for New Year's Eve and I found a judy garland tape best of the Decca years. You know just sort of a generic little judy garland tape in the bargain bin so my mom naturally got it for me and we put it on in the car and the first song on the tape was dear. Mr Gable Human love you and I tell you within the first two measures. I was in awe just just so taken with that voice. I cannot not explain it. What I've loved about hearing your relationship with Judy over the years as a subject of someone who's written about her and as a fan is that you've described her for you is a bit of a gateway into other classic foam and now your blog backlots is very well known in the bay area for Writing About Classic Film Festivals for Writing About Classic Film on TV and even for tackling issues like a classic film figures in the Present Day news like you were in England not about long ago because of the Lydia Jalan Ryan Murphy Court case I yes yes. I was there What was that like can you can you just feel a little bit on what the what brought you to England via. The Jalan was in lawsuit with the affects company show feud right yes and I was in close lost touch with the lawyers. and I was writing about the bragging about the case for my blog became it was a little bit of a coup for my my little dog you know getting all of these these breaking stories and and I I was doing all these these stories on Olivia to have one like I said got very close to the lawyers and I was invited to go to England for a lecture on lead having that I helped a little bit with and a Ah Yeah it was it was a wonderful experience just to to be there and to be there at at Oxford. He was a lecturer at Oxford about the Elon case and I'm sorry I'm confused. I missed that what was the case. This was actually a case about Libya to have lent suing fax how she was portrayed on Ryan Murphy's TV show. Oh I just love the fact that you go from ten year old little girl hunting for Judy Garland in the bargain Ben to sitting at a lecture in Oxford about Olivia to hobble and the one hundred and two hundred and three excuse me last remaining star of gone with the wind that still alive yes. It's just an amazing amazing journey for me. That judy was kind of the starting point of all of that for you yeah she was it. was you know I was like I said just sort of go back. What did you do a little bit. I within the first two measures I was. I was taken by the end of the car ride. It was that was it. You can sing along. You wanted to stay stay all night. I spent yeah spent the car ride reading the insert. You know the INSERTIVE minor come over for dinner sometime dinner here for sure so connie you have described yourself to me more than once as having been raised by drag queens unless some other Connie Champagne Wiz the wizard of Oz your first introduction judy or was it be. I mean given the fact you were raised by drag. Queens was it something advanced sure my my Graham Yeah of course I'm a child of the sixties and yeah it was always on television every year and I remember auditions for the wizard vas in high school you know my for freshmen but I didn't get dorothy but what was crazy no but the the at that time and by the way you both all of you will be relieved to know that there's now a second the musical chart because the reservoirs for judy. She sings in her key which she rarely sang above an. She's low alto okay. When people do it in community theater it was written for a soprano so then people would go to the show and they'd say what she doesn't sound anything like Judy Garland right because it's not written in the right key and so I- dishing for it and I didn't get it I got the head at odds Ahsley which was ha ho Ho Ho couple of Tra la. You know I was super happy. I was you know thirteen years old. I was happy to be in the school play away but all the future gay boys in my draw. New Drama class at my new school also said that new girl. She looks like I dorothy and she sounds like Dorothy wise isn't she. You know and I said to you know don't do that. I don't i. I don't care I. I didn't even understand that 'til 'til years you know years and years later and then didn't really give it a second thought but that particular alert character came up a number of times and New Orleans is kind of stepping away but when my friend Alan Sawyer royer asked me to do it in in ninety two. I think it was for Christmas Crawford's. That's when I jumped on it and I really will work curly hard to do this so just to explain Christmas but the Crawford's what show that is about a Christmas Eve that spent Joan Crawford's right right based on a true a real-life broadcast that Joan Crawford did with her children in the forties which is really disturbing and you know you you guys can all find it on Youtube. It's easy to find in their production and artful circle theatre it they took a great liberties with it. Wherein a a great number of people different movie stars were on their way to a party it Gary Cooper's house who lives next door in their version to Joan Crawford but they get lost and they wind up there and Joan gets increasingly upset because everyone's you know stealing the limelight from her so I'm at my character that I was a supporting character but I will tell you wanted the judy in that right. Yes I also played Katherine Hepburn. Although I have to say Matthew Martin did a much better job at Katherine Hepburn. I did did but the time when it really came into focus for me as an actor was in in December two thousand one right after nine eleven. I was doing it in New York. the director Donna Drake from chorus line. It was kind of a big deal. You GotTa Raven The Times. Thank you yeah but what I recall about it was that our theater was not that far from Ground Zero so I've done it the year before New York as well different different audience different time but when I came in to do it that year it was a very heavy thing and when I came out to sing it for these folks all the camp all the artifice everything and drops and I didn't move. I just saying how yourself a Merry Little Christmas to the folks that were there and many any of them had lost people in in that and it it definitely changed my mind around around around how I was going to play that character and to pay tribute to what you just said He. I wasn't the actor looking looking above someone's head anymore. I was looking into people's eyes and you know trying to really connect with them on that level and I think that probably holy is when I really understood the power of Dot Woman's honesty invulnerability and ability to connect with people and it's a great like I said it's great gift to have before we talk about race performance Connie. I want to ask you You've learned so much about embodying the woman judy as a performer over the years. I'm curious. If there was one tip you had to give have somebody perhaps even Zellwegger about finding your way inside Judy Garland What do you think it would be does it. You told me that it starts outside and word for you the start with the I think you look at the way that she stands the way that she moves like we talked about how how she keeps herself. Physically Vulnerable I would also say pay a lot of attention to not don't don't okay so I gave you some a little bit of vocal stuff just to you know but I didn't come at it from an impersonators point of view you know I I'm not who was the really famous drag. He was so great to Jim Bailey. Yeah Jim Bailey I mean I saw oh him as a kid and I went oh my God because he came in is six foot tall. I look like a linebacker I don't know if you ever saw and but your ten ten minutes into it and you're believing him and the reason is because he could connect with that vulnerability right so for me but I never in my wildest dreams thought I could ever do that. I thought I was more like why hope to be like you know. I don't know Bernadette Peters or something. I don't know what I thought but the point is when I finally figured that out and it probably was you know in in in two thousand one when I finally figured out. Oh this is what it's about it. It got.

"Playing Judy Garland the movie centers on a run of shows she did in London sometimes blowing audiences off their feet sometimes falling far short Zellweger sings all the songs I asked her what she knew about Judy Garland before taking this role not so much I sort of took her for granted she was always there on the turntable a reel to reel and she was Dorsey of course you now so you step into this role playing a woman who has been caricatured thousands of times often by drag queens how do you thread the needle between accuracy and parity well like he said there are a lot of things that are recognizable as uniquely Tootie just characteristics which have been not I wouldn't I don't know if they've been parity is as much a celebrated in our culture for decades and so those things are pretty well established a non negotiable that's just about coming to familiarize yourself with these things and watching videos and watching performances and interviews with sector but see like immersed yourself and all of that right. master class of certainly I mean and what a job to have spoiled rotten and you know the treasure trove is fast because her legacy is extraordinary and thank you internet. just ask since you have dug so deeply into that I think anybody who has any familiarity with Judy Garland has kind of a hit list of the best moments but you've watched moments that that certainly I haven't and probably many westerners haven't is there one that you were like hello this is the gold not that I've been looking for like if somebody going to go to YouTube right now what should a pull up goodness sorry there's a billion zillion that's essential there's one interview that I would go back to quite a bit and it was when very very young Barbara Walters sat down with her and her children Lorna and Joey and she seems so vulnerable and she was putting on a brave face but you could tell that she felt there was a lot that was hanging in the balance in this televised parents and feeling so expose if you hadn't been an actress you can imagine being anything else but an actress what do you think you might want to have wanted today. happily married..

"It's also available right now on the criteria channels so if anyone subscribes to that very easy to give it a look again they play a pair of struggling vaudeville performers who pair up in hopes of breaking through to big city theaters and then just when things start clicking for them professionally and at least on her part Romantically World War One intervenes Mike Garland moment is coming from a scene that she doesn't share with Kelly though actually here she's in her dressing room with George Murphy Perfect. He's playing another performer and she's lamenting her sudden realization that she is in love with Kelly's Harry Palmer and that he doesn't feel the same way about out her. It's way down deep inside of me. He's wrong and I love him. He's right and I love him. It's no good gee. What do you do when you love somebody so a much? They don't even know your round. He's wrong and I love him. He's right and I love him. It's no good such great lines ends and Garland is in close up here some soft background music a little bit but otherwise nothing between her and the camera no dance routine no attention attracting costumes nothing else juster face with that dialogue and I think she turns it into one of the great mini monologues on unrequited love so for me and my gal probably. I said I liked it. I think a lot more than you did. Michael probably my favorite of the homework movies that I did catch up on. I'd seen a handful before but of the ones is this last batch. I watched. I really really fell for this one for me and my gal so yet and that's the kind of scene you tend to overlook when you're looking looking at a musical because it's because it's basically just plot expediency in you know but she turns it into something else that you see in that scene how well she does with that monologue what she could do in the clock three years later which is a great. We don't want my favorite girl on performances and a nonmusical another Manelli film that that's that absolutely holy you can you can see how good she was already by nineteen forty two and again. She's you know she's twenty years older. Let's amazing amazing instincts. Well well if you heard. Michael talked about the trolley scene in meet me in St. Louis and you thought I really need to watch that or maybe re watch it. Just go back a little bit before that and that film for my why number two it's the over the banister sequence which Josh you knew that I was going to pick this one. It was my favorite Manelli moments rate from our marathon and we appropriately called those awards the Garland so my Garland for best moment from all the films wash marathon was this very scene where she's with that love interest the boy next door John True and what I love about it. She has orchestrated this entire roofs basically the scene within her house to try to entice him and she is going through because there was a party that I think maybe he didn't show up to but now he's shown up up after the fact and she's really shutting down the House for the night and so what we see is Minelli making Garland and her character esther the director of the scene where she's she's adjusting the lights throughout the house and goes up the stairs and turns them out but doesn't turn them out all the way gives them just that perfect glow so that she appears perfect act in them and she turns after adjusting the last one she's at the top of the stairs he's down to the bottom looking up at her and she turns to just stand against the bannister and Minnelli pushes in as she comes forward. It's timed perfectly of course to get her face just emerging from darkness into into the glow of that light that perfect light that he can see her in and Garland just gives this perfect head tilt just a slight tilt of the head and a smile. Gal and I do think these gestures are so crucial to Garland like one of my other choices that wink that I loved from Easter Parade these little maybe conditions are nuances as we said before that she adds to these scenes is just her in that moment that close up completely owning the frame and allowing allowing allowing him to look up at her and it's another scene like my choice from Easter parade where she's really in control of the man when you watch us completely pulling the strings brings in the scene bewitching him or maybe I should say beguiling him. God will be low with south. He watches the pay her ally Burns Damn in a whole which is what makes the end of the scene so funny too. There's this great kind of comic bit from Garland the punctuation on it where despite how beguiling dialing she's been and seems to have him just eating out of her hand. John Only reacts at the very end by shaking her hand excessively acidly and tells her how swell of a night it was. This has been a grading really it has. I'll never forget it as and you may not and you know something else. You've got a strong grip for girl. Garland's defeated face and that HARAV HARAV she gives as she goes up the stairs is just goals like more could a woman do in that scene but how he didn't just completely fall fall for her and give into anything she ever asked for the rest of his life after seeing her at the top of those stairs I don't I don't know in Garland we were both had great pension and I think for for for finding the the unexpected comic you know button at the end of a of a of a pretty sincere dramatic romantic seen that that that's that's why that movie has the flavor I love it so that brings us to our number one judy garland moment and as it turns out we all are sharing brain on this one as Evelyn so our listener from New York said this is the one you don't have it on the list. Your film spotting card will be revoked. We can't have our hosts having their films spotting cards revoked. She's dead on it is Michael D want to do the honors sure of course it's you know it's my show. Yes no wait. I'm sorry this show It's this has never happened never have been on. I've been privileged enough to be on and we've never actually agreed on a number one. I don't think now so be coup who finally came around here. I don't know I had I never had. I never had another one. It's the man that got away from Stars Board. it is stars and lost the windows grow cold suddenly suddenly you're old and all become this man that God a you can talk about a lot of a lot of things about this number. It's it's it's also when you look at what's on Youtube. It is such a film Tom Class UNTO itself. When you look at the alternate takes the two completely separate versions of this great Harold Arlen Ira Gershwin Song. It's simply setting up the the romance to come so that so that esther singing with the band you know at long after closing at this dive bar. Are you know you can just they were practising a number and James Mason walks in unseen and just manages to catch the moment where he realizes this is this is stardom you know invoice and a performer and everything everything about the number is so beautiful the the way it ended up. It's got this really dark rich sort of somewhat film new Ari kind of air to it although it's a cinemascope color picture but when you look at the two versions on Youtube of the same song done with completely different set direction bright light pastel colors you know and it's it's it's just everything is wrong except what Garland is worth and and you know a lesser studio a Lesser Director George Kuker occur happened to be the the right director lesser director would have said look. She's so good we're fine. I don't care if the set's not quite right in the mood a little off well they kept working being on she re re recorded it three times for film and I think saying dozens of times different different versions and they finally got it and I don't know the the meat of the song is about a three and a half minute. Take on interrupting where you have this really you know I can only give up my highest additive Manelli Nelly level of visual Ms Unsan where you have the the band instruments to sort of jutting into the frame at different things and there there are situated in a completely Lina unrealistic way no band of course you know circles around their performance sort of this sort of blobby not quite circle but got it on camera. It's magic. It's perfectly composed. Here's the thing the emotional complexity we talked about earlier with Garland. We have a song that is in a you know. The script writer just said we don't we need. We need a dive bar number. That's all we need we need. We need her to just Kinda sing. Some sort of lament romantic element and the lyrics are very potentially masochistic you know in that sort of way the Garland I think frankly develop that kind of aura about the sort of kind of a romantic masochism and you know sort of tragic romantic in the later in her later could've train wreck years but the way she sorta tosses this number she's smiling through most of it yeah and and then she kinda hits you with this vocal powerhouse every every every stanza it's perfect would ridden every pigging. We'll be. You're getting 235. Emotional cords being played played at once by this one wonderful contralto and it's not just the voice. It's it's a it's a hell of an actress behind. I duNNO I. It's one of these things I'm Josh Allen where you look to try to bump out your own number one like is there anything better. Is there anything but a lot of stuff. I love but this really this is kind of tighten. The only thing yeah I can see against it is that it comes to early in the film and the film peaks right there while very that's fair yeah very troubled production and so I definitely agree. It's the highlight. It was my number one as soon as we decided we were going to do this list and I still had four or five movies. I wanted and sure enough. It stayed there. When I wrote about stars born I described as staggeringly sultry a moment of a singer meaning Garland's character coming fully into her own and when you describe her voice here it Michael it is that force that that she brings to bear on the material no matter what the words are really it almost doesn't matter the force that she has. I also got a great a comment on my Larsen on film facebook page about this moment from Glenn goodfellow Glenn is he's a friend of my sisters who I know fairly well but not well enough to get invited to the one man Dan Cabaret show he wrote and starred in recently. I mean come on line where where was my invite but here's how he described the man that got away judy at her maximum judy nece. It's shot all in one take. This number is so epic that it literally renamed the Genre of torch songs man that got away songs. It's also such a perfect character for her to play. It's impossible well. Listen to this song and not fully understand the depth of her personal loss in love. You feel it lastly the brass in this recording kill it stellar all around uh so yeah. Glenn's right Michael's right Evelyn's right Adams right. We're we're all right yeah. It's gotta be it's incredible and to put it in context for the people who only know or are more familiar with the recent stars born born starring Lady Gaga Bradley Cooper. Am I right Michael. It's been awhile since I've seen a star is born. Remember studying it fairly closely for a film class. I taught there was about out movies about movies and we compared this to the thirty-seven star is born but this scene is the equivalent of the Le Vian rose seen essentially isn't it where the Yup the other performer the older man James Mason here into this dive. Bar sees her perform which is important. It's another watcher it is and I was going to say hey in this goes back to a little bit the discussion about Jennifer Lopez in Hustler's in the scene where she gets her big introduction big performance on stage and the constant cutting back to you the person watching James Mason. We don't see him in the scene. We see him walk in there but we never have to see him. React to her to understand how incredible it is. She's professor licensed camera focuses on so grateful for the fact that there's not a lot of conventional cut away shots to certainly correctly and it is a tour to force vocally it. It's not it doesn't seem extremely ostentatious or showy and yet when you really study it. You recognize just how much much rain she is showing in that song and I'll end with a quote from our friend. Data Stevens hasn't been on the show in a long time. We need to get Dana back. She of of course from slate said on twitter..

"Any films. Spotting Cards Evelyn is on the right page but she says the reason I'm writing is actually to show a little love love to a lesser known. Judy film her lasted. MGM Summer Stock in no it's not happy Josh which is rightfully iconic but for the scene where she sings friendly star assest forever shining in this seems to be now. Let me preface by I sang. The song is back great to be blunt. It can even be called a little boring. It's just judy and close up singing your heart out as she always does but this is the thing it's not about the song it's all about her delivery. I think at this point in her life she was not in the best place and all of this shows through in her performance. She elevates the song making it feel bizarrely raw. You can't turn away and just as she is literally sing about her heart's desire the camera suddenly hands ends away from her in dips down to Gene Kelly wistfully listening to her saying when I first saw that something in my heart just dropped. How did that just happen? It was such an unexpected an intimate turned an unusual for the typical. Mgm Fair. It's simply took my breath away oddly enough. I would even say that moment feels oddly modern. It's simply perfect. She closes by saying also so maybe it's a bit of a cheat. I know gene and Judy aren't exactly Fred and ginger but I have found each of they're unexpectedly emotional and they're one of my favorite screen pairings and with the backstory of Summer Stock Judy was about to be fired from MGM gene to this movie as a favor to her. It just deepens the love the plays out onscreen screw Yeah Evans. She is exactly right here there. There are better songs performed in this movie including get happy of course also I think not too long before this you wonderful you which I love and that's the other moment I was considering saying that song but also their dialogue just about show business but it's more of a Kelly moment I think than a garland one but the reason friendly star stood out to me so much on first glance was because I'd watch Easter. Pray just the day before I watched summer stock and I really loved the song better luck next time the number one. She's singing in the bar that she was discovered in the bartenders. The only person there and it's another one that's mostly just a close up of medium close up on Garland for pretty much the whole all songs and she's just baring her soul and it's like Charles Walter's the director new. We have to give Garland a number where she just finally gets to truly express herself everything. She's feeling and what we've seen her fighting the whole movie is just going to be that soul baring number and friendly star. Is that seen in summer. Stock it my way lead me to my love. Just want white him. Hey who there you F- owns right. It's absolutely the delivery. It's elegant again. It's not perfect as you'd expect but she's so emotionally invested in it that you realize no matter what it is guards just never go back to work conviction. She's just never going through the motions of a number definitely isn't here and walters does shoot it really nicely to the camera at one point. We see that it's on a crane because then just moves up just above above her and it's looking down on her so she always seems to be singing up to the sky like she is longing for something. That's just out of reach but the clincher is that moment. It's the moment where before the email came in yesterday. I wrote to Sam and said this is it. This is the moment from summer stock that you have to adore. It's when the camera pans down down and to the left of where she's standing to reveal the gene Kelly is occupying the same space that she's singing and he's sitting in a chair listening and he's he's in love with her. She's clearly in love with him. She's here proclaimed it and he heard all of it or at least most of it does feel modern like Evelyn said and it is shocking in the moment because we're so used to these moments in musicals where character sings their heart out to nobody. That's the whole point they're proclaiming to the world because because they can't say it they don't have the courage to say to the person they're in love with but when the object of the song hears it and is feeling it along with them experiencing it along with them. It took my breath away to use three exclamation points. I might use for that moment so that that moment and that song friendly stars my favorite from summer stock well and Kelly. I watching some of these films with Garland. He has to be one of the all-time great watchers of coastal. Yes he is such a valuable audience surrogate get because he's so delighted. He's so enthused about their talent that you can't help but join in the appreciation I mean he could. He could probably sell you on a far lesser talent but in these movies with caroline he doesn't he doesn't have to he's got the Ranulph deal there to be mad but he's such a good watcher. They're both you know they're just wonderfully. Mash and you can see it right away in for me and my gal back in nineteen forty two. Y- they have they both have a hammy streak but it's the best kind it's the best kind kind of ham bone instinct where it's about pleasing the audience but also also what you see. is you see real actors. Developing almost against their will inside assigned these these show these show folk you know these people will have to deliver them the number and really just really hit the mark and get the dance right and just in in all in and just stay on at you and all of it that was frankly a lot easier for garlands and Kelly you know but man I mean. It's just just what what you see with. Kelly is kind of a he is such a physical exhibitions because it was such a such an athlete as a dancer and Garland is really an emotional Alexa business. She's also not yet by nineteen fifty. It was you'd get intimations of what was what was going to happen to her. I think is a performer when when things got really rough after she got like oh by MGM but but she she's maybe emotional exhibition is really the right phrase phrase. It's really just more. She just has an unlimited sort of emotional supply to bring the almost any song anymore than and suddenly make you care care that you never thought more than you ever thought you care. Arab you know the movie summer stock and the and the love story inside. Yeah I love your point to Josh about Kelly because I did spend a good chunk of the film just watching Kelly Watch sure garland and I think that was in contrast to to Easter parade the day before and having to look at Fred Astaire God bless him with that goofy look on his face the whole movie in comparison to Kelly. I just enjoy looking at Kelly so much more at something. I think I have to get over with stared Michael. You bring up whatever and talked about a to kind of Garland's troubles and being dumped by MGM that baggage this she carried with her that I didn't know about until after I saw this film and read about some of the stuff and they had to go back and shoot get happy in the weight loss and whatnot but it is ironic watching it with that knowledge when you think about the plotline of her premadonna sister gloried trade heaven right where it's like okay. That's probably what working with Garland was like the nightmare for most directors and here. She's playing kind of the voice of reason and being a very rational for farmer that we see as the sister Jane we move on from summer stock to our number two choices for Judy Garland and moments Michael had oh my God I love so much and it's the it's the second most obvious thing you could pick besides besides something from wizard is but the trolley song from Saint Louis Take the man I had seen that front the back in a long time and I just watched it time after time the other day and just sort of. I just fell all the way in you know. I was just kind of you know I. It's the kind of talent and magic that that that for me is I'm not a very easy cryer you know in the movies and I always I tend to only music is using my first way in to that kind of emotional reaction and and also it's when something goes right for a character that I seem to be particularly touched and all that is happening in the space of this little one act play which is just a song about people on a trolley and Judy Garland is looking kind of furtively for the boy next door that she's sweet on is is he. GonNa make the train is you're. GonNa come on the on the outing with US nineteen o four Saint Louis. It's all all very kind of this sort of intimation of long long vanished sir my high starch caller and my high topped shoes and my hair piled high upon my head. I went to Bouza Jolly. We all are on the stand in his life. Brown Derby Bright Green Tie. He was quite handsome. Yeah and Garwin does to take you from the beginning the middle and the end about you know this girl talking about while she feels about this guy and then he's as you know then he makes the train and then everything changes for her and it's like this amazing change process where it just becomes this really kind of like buoyant exuberant thing and and then a great. There's a great kind of like emotional turn at the end where they meet and it's a very kind of funny little ending but if you haven't seen in a while but it's again it's really only acted and I don't know I'm I'm just in the bag for this number so bad and it's it's so many people's favorite song from St Louis a lot of people's favorite girl L. A. Number. I was glad that I hadn't seen it for years. You know sometimes you just need to go away. You know and I'm not in general not one to kind of test. My favorite's ability to astonish me you know I like to kind of take time off from things I really love and you know that that movie as much as I I love me means Saint Louis. I liked the elect just park it for a year or two. I hadn't seen that whole number in a long time but man oh man that could've been my number one. It ends up being my number two yeah. Well made my meet me in St. Louis pick so I'm not going to return to that here at number two but I am going to return to move you already mentioned Michael in my Gal. Yes I have that at number two and it's a bit of dialogue. Actually I'm going to step away from the singing and the dancing as I mentioned I wanted to pay attention to which she obviously the employees in her singing and dancing as well but the dramatic chops here and I think one of Garland's best bits of pure acting does come in this nineteen forty two film as You said Michael Another Gene Kelly pairing his screen debut..

"Christmas music so think of stuff like Vince Corral de trio's Charlie Brown Christmas the music there and yes then Judy Garland on singing have yourself a merry little Christmas in this Vincent Minnelli film written for the film by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blaine. We should say it's just such a showcase for the richness the depth of her voice. I'm probably more of a fan of her ballots than when her singing gets big and Brassy I mean that that's mesmerizing to but it's this sort of mellow richness. that that I really do appreciate but it's not just the song is desert noted. It's all about the context to you know trying to comfort Tutti our beloved deranged Tutti Atom over this this families possible move and it matches perfectly. I think not only for the story but this sense and some memories nostalgia and a little bit of melancholy that I associate so much with Christmas music yeah the killer moment that that number and it what you would a desert was was just right on about it was I think that you can always give garland two or three or five or twenty emotional notes to play simultaneously and the song the context dramatically is absolutely dependent on a performer who can make that work because she does. She has two. There's two missions right on top comforting younger sister and trying to keep your own doubts and fears at bay at the same time that's a lot to play with right there and he had this incredible contralto voice. I mean the Garland was in her early. Twenties finally playing young adult roles instead of the eternal adolescent and also she's just never looked like she looked in meet me in St. Louis she was finally photographed as an adult and got to play all kinds of new colors for once and I love the film anyway 'cause it's Manelli and he's he's a real hero of mine but I just I think if you if you put a different performer in there you'll get an effective moment in a sad woman but but not a complicated one and that's what that's that's. Why are you still talking about a recurring theme with this list. She has the ability this rare ability to bring some of that darkness is to any song or any scene that she was in without letting it smother the whole scene. I do love that. Song from meet me in St. Louis Michel. What's your number five go in the opposite mode and nobody knows is the reserve early early? The ten minutes demonstration film a short film called every Sunday that was designed as a showcase for two thirteen year old singer actresses Judy Garland born Francis Gum and Deanna Hannah Durban from Winnipeg Canada. They're both thirteen at the time very different. DNA Durban very kind of highbrow operatic style voice and Judy garland much more of a kind of a lowdown down scat singing jazz. Bo you know a thirteen kind of a kind of a you know all American Midwest sort of stock you know that was her whole stock in trade by the and this this was short film is is is patently ridiculous story where these these two girls save the local bandstand Sunday concerts bye bye bye adding some vocals to the disinterested crowd in Judy's skeleton away on the song called the Americana and Deanna Durbin when does operatic trills of sort of in in in counterpoint it I just love it for what Garland is doing ed h thirteen in the kind of singing that she did a lot in the thirties before the wizard of Oz which is just sort of you know really kind of Deft jazz scanning and I it's just remarkable to Kinda here in a big deep contralto voice coming out of the thirteen year old kid who hasn't really found much financer Polish and a lot of ways but it's worth hearing just just just to catch a little bit of what she was up to vocally that I love it. I'm crazy about it and this might pick number. Five here to stands stands for all the jazz scatting. She did as a teenager on film that nobody knows yeah they well. I'm going to embrace the darkness. The desert spoke of for my number five. It's a scene from judgment at Nuremberg yes Michael. I am one of the best swing tunes she never had. I wouldn't be your take on that actually but I'm going to go with a dramatic turn earn fair to say a rare dramatic turn Michael. You would have to be the expert here to point out to me whether or not it's truly as uniquely dramatic performance in her filmography. Lagerfeld as it seems to be. Did she ever play a role or appear in the film this weighty Wadey because you're dealing with real you'll world holocaust historical drama. That's one thing two years. After this was the last feature she made I could go on singing which was shot in England. You know anything about that but that satpathy dramatic very very melodramatic role but kind of in a similar in a weird way in a similar key but it's interesting they she did him back kind of what was she she was known for. I hate eight to say a train wreck. Judy Garland that was just she threw for the emotional train wreck. Judy Garland House we all know that was part and parcel of her whole image enroll enroll persona for so many years well just watch this film with my World War Two in generally history obsessed son Holden and we both really went for it and were surprised by how nuanced it was as a courtroom drama that doesn't really shook it all of course from the horrors of the Nazis and their crimes but it also does it all give the US or any other nation the high ground and I felt like it really lucidly address the moral and legal complexities of the case Ace in question here the mindset of postwar German people the People like the defense lawyer played wonderfully and very big no doubt out by Maximilian Shell but he is undoubtedly a presence Spencer Tracy is the chief of the tribunal Richard would mark is the chief prosecutor. Your Guy William Shatner rattener appears a very uncapped in Kirk like Yeah Shattner appears in the film and Burt Lancaster as one of the German defendants garlan plays Irene Hoffman vulner- she's only in two scenes she I takes the stand for the prosecution and later more memorably. She's being cross examined by Shell. She did get a best supporting actress for this film in Sixty two follows her best supporting actress nomination for a star is born in fifty five. We may hear more about at that later. We said how uniquely dramatic this was for her as a role. There's not only singing or dancing. There's no smiling and there are a lot of tears she plays a German German woman who reluctantly testifies against four judges before the tribunal because of her involvement in an earlier case where she was part of or alleged to be part of an illegal relationship as a teenager with an older Jewish man that the court at the time painted as sexual and she was sentenced to prison and he was executed did and during this scene this cross examination seen. Shell is relentless. He's essentially re-litigating the original case against her garland. Just bring so much dignity nitty to Hoffman. She's trying to stay calm. She's trying to answer his questions. She's trying to not let these attacks completely overwhelm her despite the fact that she is is reliving this nightmare and he's just haranguing her and at this point he's a ringing her about sitting on the old man's lap and kissing him. You're it's not what I do nothing. That's trying to say there was nothing like that. Did you do miss. What are you trying to do to what in fact what we want is the truth. This is the most forcefully we have seen her defend herself off. She's actually throwing the accusation back onto him without language. It's the first time we see her in the seat not sitting perfectly back in the chair. She leans forward when she makes that accusation when she says you but the fragility in her voice is just heartbreaking Michael. Do you remember this film as I do. I do it's Stanley Stanley Kramer really bears down hard on the actors when when he's got a scene when seems like them the close ups really intense and can relenting and the its its lesser actors can come off very histrionic and of course you know. This is a highly dramatically recharge situation but it's Garland. Garland really keeps her wits about her. In this you know the intensity she would bring to all kinds ends of much lighter materials. We talked about with me and Saint Louis is it's. It's not all that it's not a different performance. It's right next door. You're almost almost everything and you know and she can work at the other way. Too is we'll talk about later with with a certain song from stars born but anyway. I don't want to jump it but I I. I probably need to see Kramer film again. I've I it's been a long long time since I've seen it front to back on your number four Josh well. Let's go from perhaps her most serious serious film to maybe her goofiest the pirate this is while this thing was bizarre supremely silly but it absolutely knows it. That's for me see. That's saving grace. It's another collaboration with Vincent Minnelli from Nineteen Forty eight and I think this gives her a chance to really show her comic side Michael. You mentioned her as a triple the threat you know so. I tried to form my list a little bit in honor of all the quality she did bring so the singing and dancing. We're GONNA spend a lot of time on but also as with Adams uh-huh pick her ability to master Pierre Drama but comedy too and of course hitting multiple notes in a performance all these notes at once but this is really a historical performance that she gives she plays Manuela who is a woman in colonial era Caribbean who's engaged to a respected done but she harbors this romantic. Take actually it's downright erotic obsession with the infamous pirate Makoko so my choice is the number Mac the black and a little more plot here here gene Kelly plays this travelling showmen who becomes smitten with Manuela and in this scene leading up to this number he's trying to hypnotize her during a performance street street performance so that she'll fall for him instead he unleashes her Makoko obsession and gets an even wilder woman than he bargained for who is Emmanuel say okay his name. He is yes Makoko Makoko McCall Oko Makoko the pirate Makoko the fabulous Makoko the dazzling no Emmanuel. You don't mean that some day swoop down like a chicken. Hawk and carry me away. No manual a pure bidding. I shall follow him yesterday. To the end of the world I shall follow line readings here have perfect comic MC timing but again speaking to those layers there's a real sensuality and fire to them too and she eventually just shoves. Kelly aside and bursts into what is the Cole Porter Number back the Black Robin. She lets her hair flue. She pulls up her skirt. She's essentially singing in stopping repression into submission during this whole number so it's Garland both sexiest and most comedic all at once so check out the pirate Mac the black. That's a tricky tricky tricky time in her career to because the marriage the Minnelli was you know in the toilet you know she was she was I think starting to lose favourite. MGM for a a lot of reasons just you know chemically and otherwise and just chronic lateness and you know tough tough time but that's. That's a controversial film. It has huge proponents because it was a big flop in the day but it's it's got the comic touches very arch. You know it's it's extremely kind of like heightened high hi style acting and it was. I think I think for the for the popcorn crowd and forty eighth. You know what Sheryl what happened. Judy you know it certainly has its limitations wins. I wouldn't put it as one of her best films overall. You're right Michael. I was reading about the production and seen how you know..

"What kind of show you guys putting on here. Today without interesting aren't going to do this thing going to have a conversation oh sation from Chicago. This is film spotty. I'm Josh Larsen and I'm Adam competitor. ooh ooh We've made it over the rainbow. Josh where there are Judy Garland movies that aren't the wizard of Oz so many judy garland movies that aren't the wizard of Oz with the Garland bio-pic Judy opening soon in theaters. We're devoting this week. Show Oh to our top five judy garland moments joining us is our resident wizard. The Chicago Tribune's Michael Phillips Slow also spent a couple of minutes on the new Hustler starring Jennifer Lopez. Is it occurs me. Josh the wizard of Oz was a fraud would exactly saying about Michael. You won't hear this part all that and more ahead unfilled spotty welcome to film spotting Josh. We both took a crash course judy. Garland movies of the last few weeks and today is the final. Are you ready. I think I'm ready yeah I haven't I haven't seen everything. I don't even know if Michael Phillips is seen everything she's major so yeah. I feel prepared. They're still blind spots but this should be I think appropriate to our styles of preparing preparing for a show you methodically doled out the movies took them in over a few weeks and I crammed just didn't college. I procrastinated and I had to hit everything thing at the last minute to be fair. It helps when we actually commit to something for weeks. Had A title which is very rare for the show is rare well. Let's find out if Michael Phillips has is in fact seen every Judy garland movie we welcome in the man who will be handling proctoring duties for our garland examined is Michael Phillips from the Tribune. How are you good to see you goes good to see you. It's been a while I mean it's been a long time. I know it'd be on. I know we do this. More regular like Obama's. First Tournament feels like a slight exaggerate so how many how many do you think you've seen countered them up the garlic first of all. I had a wrong. I thought it was beverly girl. I'm on my three sons so I prepared all wrong. That's next show my next issue. That'll be a download killer. Yes but you know I'd say if you look at all the titles including the the obscure secure ones before she was advised. I've seen two-thirds maybe enough to feel pretty smug about my knowledge base compared to you guys okay okay well. That's all that really matters but let me ask you. Is there one at the tip of your tongue. That is a blind spot. You're embarrassed about. Is there a garland film. You've always meant to see that you haven't y actually I joked. I joked with the email to you guys earlier today about about pigskin parade or actually it was on twitter yes yes. I've never seen pigskin parade now. How you were just needling I was kneeling. I haven't seen pigskin parade. so you know if we can do a whole show on that next week at appreciate it could get to it but no that's of the biggies you know there's a few others in the early forties that I haven't seen him never seen presenting Lily Mars a lot of other things that would just sort of make you look click nipper the dog just staring. You know like what presenting. Lily were so these obscure titles to to to share explore someday later later in the show. We'll talk a little bit about hustlers. The new dramas set in the world of UPSCALE GENTLEMEN'S CLUBS IT Stars J. Lo and Constance Wu Michael and I both had a chance to see that that movie we open to big box office numbers last weekend. We've also got pull results to our question about which acclaimed movie director needs to make a movie set in space a lot of great feedback from that one including one Josh like last week. I might just be setting aside in my back pocket. Just bring on you upon. I'm going to have to leave the studio. We'll see but first I judy garland. The garland biopic Judy starring Renee Zellweger opens in limited release including here in Chicago next weekend the reviews so far pretty pretty much what you'd expect from the genre that Josh knows as his most detested movie genre the biotechs a little strong but not my favorite Los Zellwegger herself and getting a lot of praise now Michael. You have made a little bit of the festival around here lately. Did you see no no tomorrow to screening tomorrow. Does the does the listener goodwill no no. It doesn't know that you're going to see gonNA see a trend. We will have to have you back on to hear your thoughts. I could go on singing. I'll I'll go on singing. That's what I'll of course we may or may not get to a full review of Judy here on the show but we did want us the movie as an opportunity to spend some time time on Garland herself who until recently was kind of a blind spot for both of us Josh with the exception of the wizard of Oz of course it really was the Manelli marathon where we got to dive into her work. Is it fair to say that maybe the wizard of Oz isn't the best introduction one could have to Judy garland because Saad as a kid and many times sense and I don't know. Oh that a place to her strengths now that I've seen obviously over the rainbow is a central piece of focus and made her you know center to another level level of notoriety and fame but the character I don't think is sort of a passive character could be a little whiny and I held off on Garland for a while thinking meanwhile that's Judy Garland and then I think it was producers. Sam's pushing of Easter parade a couple of years ago. That was my first non wizard Judy Garland film the One with Fred Astaire and I was just completely shocked. At what a great president. She wasn't that so very different and then you're right. It was the Manelli marathon that really gave me a good sense of what she could do as well as catching up with nineteen fifty four is a star is born when the remake came out so yeah than really immersing myself men for this list. I in her stuff and surprise surprise Adam She's really something yeah. Check out the big brain on Josh. He's done all his homework. Shoot down the conclusion Asian. Is that needs to know about you the wizard of Oz I was. I'm a crammer like Adam. I'm doing the most I could watch the catch up on stuff. I hadn't seen in years years and years and stuff. I I knew I liked but hadn't seen in a long long time and just the the real pleasure of watching shing concentrated way of you know a little a little bit here and there for a couple of days of somebody who is just such an astounding triple threat who did did the top of the top of the heap and I mean I mean she. It's it's there's a handful of other. Mgm Stars Gene Kelly Fred mystere and then you know one or two others but it's it's Kelly astaire in Garland and then there's everybody else and that and that's when you think about what that actually means and when you talk about the work they did together with the garlanded with Kellyanne garlanded with a stereo. It's just you know. I don't have the same love for Easter parade that you do Josh but you know the talent level is just kind of astonishing though and it's just sort of a I don't know I don't I can't even be cynical about how what what a what a strong response. I had just kind of like just sort of like soaking up the talent because it's not somebody I grew up with loving from age eight on on you know I mean I mean I. I wasn't really a wizard of Oz annual viewer at that age you know because if the marksmen does Ron I was mark of course they were the Marx brothers. Those were not in the was it of is you know I would've actually loved to see him as ten minutes but the radar now jokes aside Josh I do think it's fair to say and this May bear out as we get into our picks that we've discovered there are depths to judy. Garland is a performer that probably aren't fully on display away in the wizard of Oz. So why don't we go ahead and jump into those picks we are going to devote this show to our top five. Judy garland moments and we're going to start it off with an an expert voicemail a guest opinion here from a previous contributor to the show does Ray Garcia Michael. You put us in touch with desert initially. She Played Madeleine Colin in Damian Chazelle debut film Guide Madeline on a park bench. She's currently an associate professor of Latin American Latino and Caribbean studies at Dartmouth and if you're a longtime listener the show you'll recall that she joined us for our top five musical numbers back in two thousand sixteen that was a tie in with our review of Damian Chazelle la La land and she's got a great pick for her favorite Judy Garland. Hi this is Deborah Garcia leaving a message for the Judy Garland show show if I had to choose my favorites judy moments which is indeed a tough task it would have to be rather obvious choice. I'm afraid of the have yourself Merry Little Christmas Song in Navy in Saint Louis. Your saw aw little let your heart the next year. Oh it's it's really an anomaly in musicals of that era in the sense that it is a song that is quite dark. It's a moment that's quite dark. even rather kind of foreboding it's Judy of course in her character esther trying to console her younger sister sure as they prepare to leave St Louis and moved to New York. The lyrics of course are storied lyrics. Now we know that there were at least two different versions of lyrics. The first is one being much darker than the first and it's it's something that quite rare for Hollywood musicals of the period to delve into such dark seems uh-huh change and family separation and perhaps separation is eternal and even though she's trying to comfort her little sister to D- it's clear that esther has her own doubts about what is about to happen and we hear that I think in in Judy Garland's voice voice up here. She's a masterful singer so we hear both the kind of conviction and hopefulness times that things will work out all right and then at other moments I think including the very very end of the song is she seeing those last final words we hear that there is some doubt there on her part some day soon you who beat him and and also just say that that for me you know that song has always been a kind of touch tone in my life something that has helped me kind of mark the various listen turns of my journey's first away from home three thousand miles away to college again leaving a college that I came to love and considering home and embarking on a new career and then to of course marriage and and having a kid and every year I revisit is it that film and that song and it helps me to kind of chart where I've been but also to help me brace myself for the future. Thanks well. Thank you very much for that. I'm going to kick off our list here because this was also my number five have yourself merry little Christmas. I think my favorite Christmas music especially if I'm thinking of the secular holiday variety is the music that has this hint of melancholy this this hint of nostalgia to at Bittersweet Nostalgia Asia I think is my favorite kind of holiday.

It's just you know. I don't have the same love for Easter parade that you do Josh but you know the talent level is just kind of astonishing though and it's just sort of a I don't know I don't I can't even be cynical about how what what a what a strong response. I had just kind of like just sort of like soaking up the talent because it's not somebody I grew up with loving from age eight on on you know I mean I mean I. I wasn't really a wizard of Oz annual viewer at that age you know because if the marksmen does Ron I was mark of course they were the Marx brothers. Those were not in the was it of is you know I would've actually loved to see him as ten minutes but the radar now jokes aside Josh I do think it's fair to say and this May bear out as we get into our picks that we've discovered there are depths to judy. Garland is a performer that probably aren't fully on display away in the wizard of Oz. So why don't we go ahead and jump into those picks we are going to devote this show to our top five. Judy garland moments and we're going to start it off with an an expert voicemail a guest opinion here from a previous contributor to the show does Ray Garcia Michael. You put us in touch with desert initially. She Played Madeleine Colin in Damian Chazelle debut film Guide Madeline on a park bench. She's currently an associate professor of Latin American Latino and Caribbean studies at Dartmouth and if you're a longtime listener the show you'll recall that she joined us for our top five musical numbers back in two thousand sixteen that was a tie in with our review of Damian Chazelle la La land and she's got a great pick for her favorite Judy Garland. Hi this is Deborah Garcia leaving a message for the Judy Garland show show if I had to choose my favorites judy moments which is indeed a tough task it would have to be rather obvious choice. I'm afraid of the have yourself Merry Little Christmas Song in Navy in Saint Louis. Your saw aw little let your heart the next year. Oh it's it's really an anomaly in musicals of that era in the sense that it is a song that is quite dark. It's a moment that's quite dark. even rather kind of foreboding it's Judy of course in her character esther trying to console her younger sister sure as they prepare to leave St Louis and moved to New York. The lyrics of course are storied lyrics. Now we know that there were at least two different versions of lyrics. The first is one being much darker than the first and it's it's something that quite rare for Hollywood musicals of the period to delve into such dark seems uh-huh change and family separation and perhaps separation is eternal and even though she's trying to comfort her little sister to D- it's clear that esther has her own doubts about what is about to happen and we hear that I think in in Judy Garland's voice voice up here. She's a masterful singer so we hear both the kind of conviction and hopefulness times that things will work out all right and then at other moments I think including the very very end of the song is she seeing those last final words we hear that there is some doubt there on her part some day soon you who beat him and and also just say that that for me you know that song has always been a kind of touch tone in my life something that has helped me kind of mark the various listen turns of my journey's first away from home three thousand miles away to college again leaving a college that I came to love and considering home and embarking on a new career and then to of course marriage and and having a kid and every year I revisit is it that film and that song and it helps me to kind of chart where I've been but also to help me brace myself for the future. Thanks
