"Of the program. So I think that is on the line with us. And of course, we're talking with Pat McDonald. Because max good is in studio with us as well and talk with Pat McDonnell from Hollywood, Chicago, the, the, the tour that kind of showcases and highlights Chicago is the backdrop, not only for your favorite movies, but also your favorite TV shows. And Pat max had a question related to. The reasons that it works. Of course it's a great backdrop. There's some great visuals here. But also on the talented max. Go ahead. What did occur to me that I think the Chicago offers a great deal of talent, not only for the production side, with camera, people lighting people, but the actors as well, and there's a great deal of equipment here. So when somebody hits the town, there's a lot of support all around him. Yes. We of course with the recent the Redline, that was that was the CPS mini series that they did here. Now, one of the things that was unique about the red line was that they did. They used you know, the Chicago locations Chicago production people, but it was primarily Chicago actors that were featured in, in key roles. One of the things about the dick wolf series. You know, we're talking Chicago, fire Chicago med Chicago PD. They still use a love primarily LA actors actors will get a chance to be extras and, and background people. But the red line was unique because if they actually use a Chicago actors like Elizabeth, Laidlaw, Michael Patrick Thornton in key roles in the red line. Ted Taylor Taylor. Kinney. From Chicago PD was out with us at the at the speedway a few days ago. So even though some of them may have roots in, in L A, or, or other places. They do get to spend a lot of time here in Chicago kind of blend themselves into the community as well. Fires for how many season seven so there you go. And of course, Chris Stolte who plays a loud is also a Chicago actor. So I take that back. He is very character on that show. So there you go. Well, it's easy when you can identify when they've got the actual word Chicago in the title. But what are some people may not be like super aware of other favorite television shows that are highlighted? Let's go back to some classics. All right. Of course, the Bob Newhart show, the original one from the nineteen seventies, where he played Robert Hartley. The psychologist was what he of course, stops from Chicago started here in the comedy clubs seen here and he he set the show here. The famous opening walk where he goes around the city where you see. Nineteen seventy. And of course, good times was set at cabrini-green. Yeah. And of course, cabrini-green doesn't exist anymore. I have the privilege of talking to John Amos, and he, he, of course, is the patriarch of the family in that, and James, James Evans, and he made a point to go to the very housing project within cabrini-green at the Evans lived at you made a point to visit there because he wanted to make sure you got a sense of what that place is about. So they actually show it in the beginning in the opening credits. We all know the satire police squad. From the guys who did airplane was a basis. I it was basically goes series from the nineteen fifties called 'em squad. Anybody remember 'em squad? With the great Lee Marvin. Now, back in those days, you know, they didn't need fancy permits. They just came in from LA. He starts. Conaco. There's. M squad. Scott on the nineteen fifties. Well, the old you know, old Richard, J Daley saw episode where Chicago cop bride, and he you know, that never happened. He, he called the production company and said, you're not welcome here anymore. So they used the stock words seasons couple of, you know, classic shows, of course, recently if you want to call r recently, of course, Yar was a big one, the Chicago back background, even though they shot up LA primarily, they would come the stock, and do some clips in the background there. Mike in Bali said here. Great mccarthy. Yeah. She. Perfect strangers. Remember perfect strangers with the balcony. In the first couple season. And they had a great opening where they went all round Cocco. So I also highlights a lot of the local shows, of course Cisco Niebuhr to show. God, it's kind of a nice, this Daljit for people, of course. Oprah winfrey. Excited about. And some you don't remember, like family matters with our that was in Chicago. Okay. Yeah. Everybody gets old depth of recognition when they see that on the tour. What does ios path that our kids watch now that you're making me think of all the different things that they watch currently, as I think it's ravens home is a show that is on TV. I think that's based in Chicago. There you go. There you go. Myself, but okay. Max. You said that going all the way back, probably, maybe the earliest opportunity for Chicago to be a backdrop might have been what my understand pay. You probably know more about this than me was that early film days before Hollywood became the film center of United States, that Chicago was really a place to be I as I recall, was was Charlie Chaplin during production here. Significant. This is part of the history of the tour that I really enjoy. I mean, they're syncing difficult movie history here in Chicago. And one of the first free standing movie studios in film history was right here in the city. The Selig Polly scope company right the corner, western in Irving park now. You know, in the early days, the movies was exactly like the internet in the nineties, nobody really do where it was going to develop who was gonna give all the all the gory in regard to it. So studios are popping up all over the country, then Chicago is one of the early players. So go company team, ninety six and then of course, s today studios, what's remarkable about today's that it it's physical building structure is still standing. So I always. Point out that this is probably the most significant artifact of early cinema. That's right here in Chicago. And that is that is your chaplain connection. Yeah. Chaplain chaplain was working for the keystone studios. The famous keystone cops back in nineteen. Fourteen is contract runs out with keystone like any good freelancer. He puts it up for the highest. And George spor the s he was offered chaplain twelve hundred and fifty dollars a week, a lot king's ransom in nineteen fourteen. He was actually what is paid men in the world. And he came to Chicago for three years or came to our Chicago base. Stay studios. They can fourteen fifteen and sixteen snails. So how they studio in, in Los Angeles. So you get primary workout their way is working today developed you developed a tramp character and in nineteen fourteen for keystone to Chicago today made made a film here called his new job on that studio in uptown with with the great, Ben Turpin, who started out. That's nee a janitor for eleven bucks a week. And then became a big star is alright, and him chaplain work together in that movie and then Chapman, went out to California studio series. And that's when he's a tramp character really took off. I mean, they had a gold mine for three years with Chaplin. And of course, he, he moved on was contract was done. Apparently, George spor had trouble paying. Say a lot of the weather here, he hated George spor that when it comes to cinematic street cred, that is as good as it gets, the listeners know exactly with Pat McDonnell from from Hollywood Chicago before we get into the, the website, and where people can go ahead and get off. Get on at one quick question from the three. Oh, nine someone wanted to know was was Loyola used in the movie flatliners. Yes or no? I'm not sure if you know. I believe that now we don't we don't go. Primarily to there. But I believe they use the museum of science and industry as a as a backdrop for the university. They were doing the experiment. Don't quote me on that. They also we also use the graveyard Wrigley, Bill Jewish Graceland, which is the closest graveyard Wrigley field. Mysterious seem. So that's our primary seen flatliners that we use to work. Yeah. I will throw in this is Tom as a loyal graduate. They definitely mention that. Yes. Flatliners did he was loyal is lakeshore campus? Some added into the torts. We all wheel go that far. For those that want to experience the current stops on the tour, of course. They're changing on a regular basis pack, give people formation how they can get involved and get on tour with you. Well, I easy thing to do is go to the Chicago film toward dot com. And then you can call us to make a reservation three one two five nine three four four five five but anyway numbers Chicago film toward dot com and well we start off at the improv blue Chicago, which is right? Half block south of the rock. N roll McDonald's where all the tours take off, but we got our own spot there, because it's much easier than manipulate are and, you know, and you can also read my reviews of Hollywood Chicago dot com as you mentioned.
