"Worked on some incredible projects, and I'm just picking a few. The list is just so very long. Elvis biographer Peter, wrote last train to Memphis. This is a quote from him. Open sesame and the red sees parted. I have never gotten so much exposure. Tell me about that project. Well, Peter is a lovely person. One of the nicest people I've ever worked with, how would I get rejected calling about Elvis? There you go. However, The Boston Globe did reject the story. Alvis wasn't local enough. But that's beside the point. There's some of the crazy things that happen when you're pitching. But Peter garon lick and I connected actually through a dentist. We work together on two books. Both of his albus books and had an online birthday party for Elvis Presley, and we had a great time. It was very memorable project. Former president Jimmy Carter, and then another project with Rosalynn Carter. President Carter, a lovely man, just really lovely. I woke up that morning, and I had a terrible cold. He was at the Parker house in the presidential suite. I was not going to cancel my day, nor did I want to get him sick. I did go, he still hugged me and kissed me, even though I was sneezing and everything. He was a lovely person. I do remember that he wanted to read every newspaper, and I was to not interrupt him. And he had about 6 newspapers. So if an interview came in early, I was to wait, and he had to finish reading would never newspaper. But he was lovely. I found through the years and I think what I learned too is that many really powerful people who've accomplished so much are very gracious. Don't talk about themselves, which is really refreshing, because after a career in publicity, you really had to share of egomaniacs. They love me in Cleveland. I really was influence. This is though I had another education at Houghton mifflin, observing these people, and finding them really interesting. Well, here's someone that I know you had firsthand experience with. Hollywood royalty as in the actor Kirk Douglas. That was quite a treat. I mean, how many chances my life would I have a chance to even talk to Kirk Douglas? And as you know, I did set up an interview with the lovely Jordan rich and sat in on that interview. Sometimes during that interview, Kirk asked me how I was. You know, he liked women, and he wasn't ashamed to show it. He asked me how old I was. I didn't really want to tell him at the time. So I said something, I eventually told him I'm not going to tell you. And he said, to me, in that voice, you were too old for me. And I like telling that story. That was quite a tree. What kind of a comeback do you need to have when someone says that? I don't know. I looked at Jordan. Jordan looked at me and we thought, oh my God, I didn't know what to say.

"And so I was able to do a lot of I mean, he had been trained as an editor. So and actually it was very innovative. He had as well as Orson Welles and their cinematographer Robert hall were very innovative coming up with ways to cut between scenes, they invented the invisible wipe, which is using a shot of the camera to go through something to go up to something solid and then putting another frame of film starting in something solid so that if you're that's what's called an invisible wipe. So it's a seamless edit that he helped invent. And I just pre ordered the director's cut of Star Trek the motion picture on Blu-ray. So I'm looking forward to seeing that. There is no comparison, right? Well, yeah. At least there wasn't at the time. Yeah. That's true. People don't like Star Trek the motion picture. I liked it. It's long. I have seen the director's cut on plain DVD in standard definition. And it's very good because it actually cleans up a lot of the story. But I've been looking forward to the DVD for a long time. So I'm excited about that. So the Blu-ray, rather, in high definition. All right, so how about some of these actors? Yeah. Imagine our audience is heard of at least a couple of these guys. Yeah, I mean, come on, Clark Gable was rep butler. I mean, you can't really, how can you be a fan of old films and not know Rhett butler, you know, Clark Gable. Buddy, he did a million other films, he did from he did 60 motion pictures from 1918 to 1960. So he won an Oscar for it happened one night. He was in mutiny on the bounty. He was in, obviously, Gone with the Wind. And in a million other films that he was in. So this is one of his more prominent films, there's also one of his last films. So and then I'm going to talk a little bit about the war service of some of these actors. So Clark Gable actually, although he was older, he was in his, he was actually in his 40s, but he volunteered for the army, army air corps during World War II. He was an officer and he was trained as a gunner on bombers, but he mostly spent the war making recruiting films, but he did actually see combat in a B-17, flying over Germany. They were filming something and on a combat mission, and he grabbed a machine gun. And bought off, helped fight off German fighters. So he actually got in a lot of trouble because a German cannon shell actually shot through the airplane right next to his foot and the studio was not his studio in the army. We're not happy about that. So yeah, and so then the other person, the other major star, the film is Burt Lancaster. He's one of those, he's, you know, one of those great Hollywood stars of that post war era, you know, along with Robert Mitchum and Charlton Heston and Gregory Peck. He's in that and Jimmy Stewart. Yeah, Jimmy Stewart, Jimmy Stewart actually has a pre and post war. Stark online, John Wayne, but like the ones you really came of age during the war, rod immediately after the World War II and I pictured them the 50s, right? In the 1950s, the big stars Kirk Douglas is another example. But he actually had served in the war also as a morale officer. But he did not act before the war..

"So sorry we don't put it to the side and we're we're definitely going to talk about the ending and this marriage because those scenes between barbara stanwick and kirk douglas. And we're talking about kirk douglas as well. So just don't don't even worry. But i wanted to touch on just the story a little bit since. That's kind of where we've been coming from in that the film's a little bit too long. But it's it again dovetails with with one of the interesting themes and aspects of this movie. Which is i enjoy. How and it just betrays. What the sick people that to walter and martha are. Are they come in here. Sam shows up and they just assume the worst. He's here to blackmail us. He's here to do this. And that and the other thing and he has no concept. So i i enjoy this story line of a guy who has none of those noir like inklings of like i'm gonna blackmail you are going to get to the bottom of this or i'm gonna break is literally just passing through the. This is just happened to be that the road the road curved and he didn't and so i enjoy that of him saying like really wanting no part of this but just getting pulled in just that like is. If you're walking through a swamp that just it just keeps giving under your feet tall by woman. Then he needs to help her than he realizes that the worst he's really intending is just to say. Hey come on you know. It's the lightest of black males. Get this lady out of jail for probation violation and the way it just spins out of control now. It spins way out of control till the point that now we're dealing in these subplots of private detectives and attempted murders fake marriages. And you're saying this now we're getting like there's a lot to keep track of but anyway i do agree with you. I think that there's some really nice parallelism symbolism in the rooms. That sam and tony share in the hotel contrasted with this house. The house then obviously the way it comes full circle with the staircase is very. I mean these are nice structural touches that. Perhaps you could take a little bit further but you also wouldn't want to to overdo them either. I think you know to get back towards this marriage. This is just perhaps the most irresistible part of this fell. We've we should touch on kirk douglas because as breakout performances go. Wow yeah what. Performance that kirk. Douglas gives at it. It almost made me.

I'm just guessing that she likes both of those. And then this. This scene made me laugh but we talked about it already. But it's like so You guys okay. Everything's fine in a weird. I mean they obviously know. Is he trying to do kirk. Douglas imitation because it sort of sounds like kirk douglas. They i guess hector has now just mimicking. Everybody even does heard as he yes yes he does. Alex is forgot about that and so they feel utterly trap that now the this slowest moving robot ever is holding them captive right and they can't escape it and now it wants to learn everything that kirk. Douglas knows right about hydroponics i guess. And what fair faucet before harvey kyw till Did his before all of that. You did you see. He actually took a big handful of pills.

He's like oh one more thing like it keeps on down his neck at the very last. Hector just wants to stick the poured in just still or a second. Make me scissor your head off and in hector did not repair the floor whatsoever. So it's his fault. Yeah it really is. He is not a good robot. he's not very smart law. That's why he's trying to get the smarts from kirk. douglas. I guess so. Yeah i guess steal your smarts turn your head around. Hold still one more thing.

Out of the cabinet is just right next to like is just a box on a wall. Yeah it was in the. It was in lifesaving bomb cabinet just like you said but tackling hector into.

I love it in those movies where it is literally like here just like this flare. He'll be completely confused. Like there's just this murder bought and you just kind of blows some fog adam and eve completely undone and i find this funny because fair faucet sheep show she hits the lever turn on this fog machine yes to confuse hector kirk douglas. Just holding the hose not even close to the robot really just right in front of his own face. Yeah i know he could've gotten it a little bit closer. Yeah is that like a bomb. Kind of thing just smoke. i mean they are growing hydroponics. That's right and that one scene where he tells her to to get naked. He says i'm going to all. I'm going to think about his hydroponics. Yeah drew upon x. Hydroponics tackles are onto the bed. And she's all giggly about a two. Yup i can't wait to see your old balls so very faucet and kirk. Douglas have been separated when they were space. Grandpa gassing hector the robot. Yes i don't really understand how their voices are like weird modulated now in this hallway seeing. Did you wonder why. I just let it go okay. Hey i'm easy hector's looks like he's gonna do one of those windmill thing. He puts his arms out to decide his. Just gonna spin around again. You can easily run away from hecker. I mean he's not sneaking up on anybody. But i guess this base is so huge. That maybe i don't know hector. Has he knows all the shortcuts zone. No they're just trying to get back to the botany bay right. Yeah i guess. Hector is Again just everyone is of voyeur. In this hector gets into the control room to watch them on. These closed circuit tv again. I mean this is so in the future that they are in a giant spaceship in a asteroid field but he has to go to a room to watch the cameras for you know. That's the part that i never understand. In the sci fi movies in you not just think. I mean maybe i'm just being maybe just the thought of like bluetooth or something as just like blowing people's minds or if they he just had a artux to won- sticks into the wall and then he can say these things that would work to buy right exactly exactly so we set up their waste disposal system underneath the floorboards gray water just so they could set a trap later now for hector so removing the floor grates and covering it back up with these cheap panels right. They basically were like supported by those like plastic pallets battling from walmart. Yes this is weird to me to. Plants don't need rocks around to make it seem like they're in a like habitat or something. You know what i mean. But you know the the bobby room. They didn't take an entire cave system from earth and put it into a spaceship. They made it up like it's a like a theme restaurant. Id there you know sure. Yeah volcano goes off like noon.

"Booed the robots helped. Put hector back together including this big brain. It's like a bunch of brains. It's like how tennis balls are in that like to. There's like six or seven of them and they were all marked abby normal. That's what it looks like. That's what we're finding out. They really went overboard. I think on this The life jews of the tubes there get see that scene over and over again. I know that looked very silly to. I mean they just look like crazy straws or something you know. So what we're to believe is that even though the brain was removed from hector the head was still attached to the brain therefore the brain is able to remotely control these other robots to put him back together. That's it you're you're giving into much credit. Think it's just bad. I just realized anybody can go anywhere. We're coming up on the scene. That i resent you for and probably will for the rest of our relationship together. They just lay down to bed. She is in a skimpy. You know like lingerie and so is he. He's not wearing. We will soon find out anything. Yes the the fight scene between a very naked kirk douglas. If he's wearing anything he's wearing one of those weird like what are they. Call him like pasties. But for your weiner i guess just so. When he is strangling harvey l. is dick isn't rubbing up against him. They're hiding his boehner. Rugged i mean he is a tough old man. You know you but come on. I think cardi b. taylor's almost getting off on being show. Yeah he's like that guy on holy shit and just when i was starting to get mad at you like a. He made me look at kirk. Douglas but harvey kites l. is kind of trying to drag farah away. That he's just like i'm taking her to earth she's mine exactly and Fucking hector pops out from nowhere and chops his fan. Mom and i was like. Oh okay now. You've got my attention again. But there was a scene that was supposedly cut. Wear hector is dismantling harvey keitel. Ooh really like ripping limb from limb. I guess so because we see small scene later where hector is wearing harvey gels face and now using his voice right which is great It's probably the best best seen in the film. It's coming up. I kind of wish that he would have kept wearing the face. Oh absolutely throughout the rest of the film it's already rated r. After the hand thing. Okay so now. I see where you're seeing gone. Because when they catch a glimpse of him he is just got like ragged pieces of light. Ludden lash on his claws. It's awesome. I saw the this smear of blood on his leg but yeah the lashing in from those clamps clamps clamps. Yeah his hands are like the only threatening part of inspire robot so this is kind of well you see the flesh hanging down to because they're kind of in the the underbelly of the ship straight from aliens draped from alien and there's still flesh hanging onto the clause. He's reaching through the great to try to get them. Oh my god and so like lethargic. It's eight chase scene. They have all the time in the world. Hector cannot move that fast. And they're like oh we can't get away from him. Kurt douglas's like he's always one step ahead of us or something like you're in your sixties and he can easily get away from him away he just saw you in..

"Donen who has the credit for directing everything but he was mostly a musical director. He directed singing the rain. He directed funny face. fred astaire audrey hepburn charade seven brides for seven brothers. What and shit like. Oh not really the type of guy that you want for your sci-fi right has no idea. It's just a drama yet. I guess i'm thinking that because the robot which spoiler alert there's a giant robot in this is just not that scary everybody else says it was intimidating and farah fawcett said. She was intimidated by it. Because it was a foot tall. Yes there is a man in the suit yes but it still took twenty people doing an metron ix to get you know the things to move like the orange or whatever obviously not his arms and they they created another head for it which the the head of the robot. Probably the cheapest looking thing ever okay. That was a huge sticking. Point for me. I was like all of this other crap about their relationships and stuff like that is so boring that when that robot shows up finally to get something going but it kind of looks like You know how they have armor that's like molded sued. Look like a body right. Like never arthur son and X caliber you've got the golden armor that has like nipples on it and stuff. It's basically like i've got a golden nipples. It's like a batman and robin novels. But then first of all he turns around and he's got a little metal but which is not incriminating it all illex q. Like you wanna like you know was so weird when it turned around and had a little bug. Why wouldn't you cut that part off. But anyway and then the head is just a just like the inside of like a Cable box or something. Yeah with two lights on it. But the original story. And i watched an interview with Farah fawcett washed a couple of them. One when she was doing with with the tonight show johnny carson and they were talking about it now. The original movie that was pitched to her was called the helper and was a totally different story than what they actually ended up with. Obviously but the helper was actually The robot was supposed to fall in love with faira right. The robot was brought to them and it was given emotions by learning from harvey keitel and fell in love with faucet by the way that is a much better movie because the way that they try to work that in to this is that i could not figure out what the relationship between harvard cuts tell. The robot was because the robot has an intelligence itself right without harvey kites l. correct. I think it does to a certain extent. Harvey has that port in the back of his neck. Right like that matrix seat kind of. Yeah exactly that weird thing that they insert in the back of his head. That basically i think he was taking information and giving it to. I don't know if you had to have that in there that it was remotely going to. Does he put it into the robot and they share information. I don't know yes. All of the tel is already mr rapi so yeah. The robot is going to have if i was kirk douglas. I would have just pretended. They were like jehovah's witnesses or something. I would have logged every door and just pretended not to be there and so he went away. Harvey intel is constantly trying to fuck fair faucet.

She didn't know one Good day Boston and she's the start. She cried. You know, she was so glad to see him and she was so well, she saw the poll number twice, Correct. Okay, and it was unbelievable and we got Recognition in USA Today and everything was my idea. You felt God. I found his press secretary and he was campaigning in Boston.

I mean if not from cova from life jamie noticed for the first time ever not the first time ever but she noticed that an animator had passed away. I was like oh no. That's going to start happening more and more because animation so huge now like they're going to be really like big animators passing away in spades. Pretty soon i mean that's absolutely going to be true a lot of faces that we see watching through old disney imagineering documentaries unfortunately Will be passing. Well you know what no one does anymore and is totally within their rights to do and maybe would have been a stronger move politically for anthony. Hopkins is refusing an oscar. I know in history only like three people or five people have done it. But like i think that if you were anthony hopkins if you refused the oscar and put out a statement saying that you truly genuinely believe the chadwick boseman deserved that would have been the better move. Has anthony hopkins has had arguably the most lauded career in acting Maybe in history or at least as far as living actors go pull the marlon brando. Refused the oskar because of lake. Native american rights like refuse it. Who cares it would it yet. You know he probably didn't think anything of even being nominated because again he's been nominated like six times one one time years ago decades ago also. We can't stress this enough. He's like ninety like he doesn't care that much about two things but it you know if he had the forethought maybe he could have said like like if i win refused the i'm not going to be there but You know fears..

I mean they might just subject stand any like you could be whether or not chinatown is a western ride because yes it takes place in los angeles but as it and it may not feel like western but it's also dealing with a single most important fact of life in the american west which is one and so.

"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host Kit Crumb. I'm continuing my investigation into the concepts of time travel yesterday. I mentioned three resources. Final countdown. A movie where you can watch. Martin Sheet explained the grandfather paradox of time to Kirk Douglas. Kind of a fun movie came out in the eighties and Christopher Reeves in his movie somewhere in time takes it to a mental intellectual level kind of away from what physicists would like to think when they think of time travel and of course. There's the book by She. Wells time travel Idea that you could just go to the future. Go to the pass by pulling a switch on a machine. One of the things that happened yesterday was I mentioned the grandfather paradox of time and I gave you a place to watch Martin. She talk about this. I got a lot of emails saying why. Don't you explain it? So here goes this kind of scattered a little bit but give you an idea. Besides a physical problem time travel may also come with some unique situations a classic example. Is the grandfather paradox. Which time travel? It goes back and kills his parents or his grandfather. The major plot line terminator movies interferes in their relationship. Now think back to the future so that he has never born or as life is forever altered. That's back to future if that were to happen. Some physicists say you would not be born in one parallel universe but still born and another others say that the photons it makeup light prefer self consistency and time lies which would interfere with your evil suicidal plan. Some scientists disagree with the options mentioned above. And say time travel is impossible no matter what. Your method. The faster than light. One in particular drew derision from American Museum of Natural History astrophysicist Charles Lou that simply mathematically doesn't work you said also humans may not be able to withstand time travel at all. And that's what we're lucky nap today. Several theories time travel traveling. Nearly the speed of light would be necessary and take some kind of centrifuge. But that would be lethal. So let's go back to the beginning and say what is time while most people think of time as a constant physicist Albert Einstein showed a time is an illusion it is relative it can vary for different observers depending on your speed through space to Einstein. Time is the fourth dimension space is described as a three dimensional. Orito and we know that we have up and down forward and back left and right those who are dimensions but he talks about a fourth dimension which provides traveler with coordinates such as length width and height showing location. And then that fourth dimension provides another coordinate or direction although conventionally it only moves forward. Einstein's theory of special relativity says time slows down or speeds up depending on how fast you move relative to something else approaching the speed of light. A person inside a spaceship would age much slower than his twin at home. Also under Einstein's theory of general relativity gravity can ban time picture a four dimensional fabric. Call Space Time. When anything that has mass sits on that piece of fabric it causes a dimple or bending of space time. Let's stop and talk about this fourth dimension for a moment if you look into a Koi pond and you see the fish and they have is on either side of their head they are two dimensional creature stay left and right and they can move forward and back. There is nothing about them. There is no third dimension so if I grabbed one of the Koi and lifted about of a pond that would introduce the Koi to a third dimension so what Einstein in his speaking of this fourth dimension or call what he calls Space Time. That is something that is above us. It is literally another dimension so there you have the idea of Space Time. What that is that is that fourth dimension that's above us like the third dimension this above a Koi pond for example objects move on a curved path in that curvature of space is what we know as gravity both general and special relativity theories have been proven with GPS Satellite Technology. That has very accurate time. Pieces on board the effects of gravity as well as satellites increase speed above the earth relative to observers on the ground. Make at the UN adjustable clocks gained thirty eight microseconds a day in a sense. This effect called time. Dilation means astronauts are time travelers as they returned to earth very very slightly younger than they're identical twins that remain on the planet. One possibility could be to go faster than light which travels at one hundred and eighty six thousand two hundred and eighty two miles per second. That would be a vacuum Einstein's equations though show that an object at the speed of light would have both infinite mass and a zero of length. Go figure that s beyond me.
A little extra Time
"Welcome to catch myths and mysteries. Shyam your host kid chrome with everybody shelter in place. I thought it might be interesting to talk about time travel and with that in. Mind the paradox of time on time. Paradoxes any logical contradiction that has to do with time travel. The Classic Paradox Time Falls into the classic grandfather paradox. The grandfather paradox who's usually the screenplay turn novel then movie where the U. S. Nimitz is caught in a storm of thrush and back in time to December sixth nineteen forty one. The dilemma is what the crew knows. What's going to happen? But the grandfather paradox of time gets in the way when the past is changed. It creates a contradiction. The time traveller could do anything that did happen but can't do anything that didn't well an aircraft carrier the size of the Nimitz didn't exist back in nineteen forty one so anything they could have done would have altered the future in a big way. Fortunately the storm that sent them back in time reappeared and brought them back to their time before they could decide what to do for a little more detail watch the movie. The final countdown. I think it came out in the nineteen eighties. Should you can listen to Martin. Sheen explained the grandfather paradox. To Kirk Douglas. The topic of time travel bags of big question. How would travelers go forward or back in time? H She wells painted a picture of a time machine with his book. The time machine. It was simply a vehicle for going forward or back with little regard to the visitors passed or impact on the future or past for the past for that matter that then we have screenwriter Richard. Matheson who wrote somewhere in time and takes the issue of time travel to a new level in the movie. Christopher Reeves is a young theater students celebrating the success of his latest production when the party is interrupted by an elderly woman who break Suda crowd of well-wishers Impresa lock into his hand Luxembourg. The says come back to me long story short. He traces Salak at back. To a stage. Actress of Nineteen twelve and her summer retreat that has been restored to pristine nineteen twelve decor. He buys clothes from the era right down to the socks. He wears a pocket wash from that era than rents a room and focuses on all things nineteen twelve and remember. He's surrounded in a room and a facility that is all nineteen twelve and ZAP when he ventures back out into the hall so hours later it is indeed nine thousand nine hundred twelve and elderly woman is there and a romance began one day. It is raining so they decided to have a picnic and Gorse at some point. She asked the time when he pulls out the pocket. Watch a penny from nineteen. Eighty comes out with it and the spell is broken. Well all this talk of time. Travel's seems a stuff of fiction. The what about Deja Vu? The feeling that you've been there before or met that person before done that thing before could it be that you've visited another time and have a flash memory of the person you met. L. Let's bring it home. The was the last time that a day week or month just seemed to Fi- yet your routine hadn't changed. I can remember going to the gym a specific time day or I would meet a friend. We always did the same routine but after a year or so. We noticed that we were finished sooner than before our next meeting. We TIMED ISH. Exercise routine and the gaps between each workout. The Times were always the same yet. We would finish at different times out of that work at one meeting. We had to stop and re park our cars yet. We completed our usual routine at the same time we had established and still finished early. Not Time travel but perhaps time slip. The Earth spins at Specific Rate. Plants grow in predictable period of time. Are we humans of variable our perception of time altered for seemingly? No reason when I was in grammar school failed to complete my homework. I could still hear my teacher telling me that we all had the same twenty four hours in the day but do we. The world's most accurate clock has neatly shown how right Albert Einstein was a hundred years ago when he proposed that time is a relative concept and the higher you live above sea level. The faster you should age. Einstein's theory of relativity states at time and space are not as constant as everyday life would

Kirk Douglas, Towering Icon of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Dies at 103
"So that's from the nineteen sixty film Spartacus it's Kirk Douglas in one of the best known scenes of his long Hollywood career Kirk Douglas died yesterday at the remarkable age of a hundred and three throughout the fifties and sixties he embodied a certain romantic idea of Old World masculinity in his films he often made movies about cowboys and soldiers prize fighters and rebels his most famous movie was Spartacus but the movie that made him a Hollywood star with the nineteen forty nine boxing movie champion the person he was in real life often mirrored the tough man that he portrayed on screen Kirk Douglas had a difficult childhood he grew up in New York in extreme poverty he actually was a wrestler and spent time in the navy before his success on Broadway he later went on to make movies that now define the era of Hollywood classics in nineteen eighty one Kirk Douglas received the presidential medal of freedom and fifteen years later he earned an honorary Oscar for lifetime achievement Jason Gorder he's a movie critic and a big fan of Kirk Douglas is work and he's here to reflect on the actors impact on the film world to chase and thanks for being here my pleasure and honor to speak about this giant of talent what do you think when you think Kirk Douglas I think somebody that helped change what we think of of modern cinema frankly he's he bridge is very much the gap between sort of the traditional Hollywood leading man that's sort of you know the beautiful dimple in the middle of his chin the incredible physique a sort of sense that we had of the strong man the strong big actor but is also somebody that brought a great deal sensitivity to his character system the steps two wasn't simply a matinee idol who somebody that sort of brought through his performance a dramatic richness that would we'd be exhibited in many of his contemporaries people like Burt Lancaster but also into people like Marlon Brando who get celebrations and more but he also brought a very political a sophisticated political angle to his films he somebody that absolutely shifted the conversation but what it was like to be a performer not simply studio tool but somebody that could take charge of his own career and shift at and that's when the look of the great things that he did everything that we saw after the fact of of these performers that are able to shape their careers much more explicit way he was a pioneer on that front would you consider that is greatest contribution or what for you just it gleams above all the rest I mean for me my personal connection or to serve master pieces which are the films that he did with Kubrick puzzle glory was a film that nobody wanted to make nobody wanted to make this sort of anti war sophisticated look at World War one it was sort of it was a war that nobody was particularly interested in such a grisly film that about moral ambivalence that wasn't really to be taken up and he and his production company Brina named after his mother foster got the money together now a great deal the budget went towards him but nonetheless he gave a shot to this this quirky New York filmmaker called Stanley Kubrick an fifty seven nineteen sixty while he was doing Spartacus the other our grand collaboration there's another director and after a week Douglas realize this is not going to work and he brought in correct now that the dynamic between the two of them was a little tenuous but none the less he brought this to start the superstar director to one of the sort of last big epic Hollywood cast of thousands films and still injected with the with this real subtlety and real intelligence of performance and finally with Spartacus again the connection Douglas Trumbull is it was Kirk Douglas who unapologetically said this blacklisted armed writer is going to get credit actually John F. Kennedy cross the picket line in order to see Spartacus this is what broke the blacklist the famous arms those that were accused of being communists so in so many ways I Kirk Douglas of star power was used for good he was used to bring stories to screen that would have been brought otherwise he brought directors that otherwise Hollywood didn't think that were I'm sufficiently commercial and you brought to light the hypocrisy of actually bring these writers to to dream if for the if you only watch two forms of Kirk Douglas these are ones actually fully sober in you know a lot of people will be doing that tonight I want to play you a clip from almost thirty years ago no looking back I realize I was much more successful when I forgot about being a hit for years I proclaim loudly that a movie must be good entertainment no messages for me but I've changed it must in some small way touch improve humanity that was Kirk Douglas accepting a lifetime achievement award from the American film institute and you can hear that Douglas was ingesting this chiseled jaw line or a typical Hollywood celebrity of the era is like you say he was a man of principle and you're quite cranky I hear that a lot of people didn't get along with him but is that how he will be remembered do you think is a man of principle was incredibly philanthropic and and again his story is fascinating he has for his father was a smart the dealer a rag command in upstate New York came from nothing I'm dealt with severe anti semitism the sun changes name sort of inculcates himself into Hollywood as a sort of brash fully American leading man from that he saw the the division between high and low and he really took that film trophic spirit that's that moral spirit the moral conviction through his career what a hundred three is a long time to live but he lived a very very full life and I believe when he was getting at AFI award he had just been in a tragic helicopter accident then here he is again I'm coming to the fore because he was called his performance he was there to actually have the signs that he also had a stroke he's kind of had nine lives and his son Michael Douglas was watching all of this and he's an acting icon in his own right do you think that that what is it from Kirk Douglas that you see that Michael Douglas has it has in him I mean I've said the drive the conviction but of the the big deal is that once a problem OR one flew over the cuckoo's nest was a Kirk Douglas production he actually did the stage production he got the rights again he saw this very quirky very politically charged project his son would eventually produce the film in the Afghan Oscar glory because of that so so the the tradition certainly carries along with Michael Douglas but the I mean it's it's for for viewers who are not familiar with this film we just don't really have a Kirk Douglas anymore the system doesn't really work with that but we have certain people the Brad Pitt's of this world who are stars but also bringing in these films after their production so it's quite remarkable thank you so much Jason Jason is a film critic he joins us live in the studio to talk about the death of Hollywood actor Kirk Douglas who died yesterday at the age of a hundred

Remember five years and this time you'll have to serve every day of it. You don't have to all right get down doing what do I have to do. Kirk Douglas. Who has died at the age of one hundred and three after a career that spanned seven decades? Wadi is famous for films like Spartacus. lustily many many more with being the monocle ban Rai than indeed Ben that we just listened to was from his debut. That's nineteen forty-six That was the film at the strange love of Martha Ivers and the other voice. You heard in that clip opposite Kirk. Douglas was degrade Elizabeth Scott who is really little. None today was quite a big star in her time but made most of her career Korea in the genre of film noir. Which of course is quite obviously Kirk? Douglas got his start That film and many others as well were well within the film noir genre and really came to personify so much of what he screened type was when he he did. Have this tendency in this Eddie days to play some pretty unsavory characters but also to get the audience to empathize. He's with them absolutely. That was key to that particular role there. I remember speaking to Victoria. Wilson who is the biographer of Barbara Stanwyck who is also in The that film the Martha Iras And she described that film as really being all about post war American wrought the kind of corruption that seeps into the political process. Sometimes when you've got everything that you could ever want you know what comes with victory. Basically and that came to us on a lot of the other roles that Kirk Douglas Played After that there was another film he starting also opposite Elizabeth Scott which was I walk alone. that one of his best known roles was in the nineteen fifty and a film called Ace in the hole which I would argue should be required viewing for as giants out. There It if you're talking about unsavory characters unsympathetic characters has played by Douglas. This probably should be top of the HEAP He's playing a journalist who stumbles across a situation. Where basically there is a man stuck in a hole But he sees an opportunity opportunity then he exploits the situation he basically follows the rule book of tabloid journalism. Buck does everything that you definitely shouldn't do as an ethical journalist and it's it's all about the The the the consequences that come with that or the other the other one I came to very light is probably much better known I saw powder glory about a year ago for the first time. Absolutely live I mean look Polaris Armenian. These really well-known up performances as you would expect from a an actor of Kirk. Douglas Caliber He's starting so many well known films. That have really come to a lot of them. Have come to Croft what we think about when we think about that period of filmmaking that sort of Early to mid century you. He's career started in the forties. It really ended US oppose or certainly the the golden era of ended towards the end of the nineteen sixty so his career path can be directly traced to the ascendants and then descendants of of classic Hollywood filmmaking but he also made so many other films that I think deserve to be rewarded. If you look at the list of films that he was most proud of making yes. There are the well-known ones like spot and so on but one of the films he listed was that I won the strange love of Mahthir Avas.
