"margaret anderson" Discussed on Around the World in 80s Movies

"Lloyd appear in the bill. The director is sanders stern who also writes the screenplay now the origin of the evil escapes. I guess we have to start with the author of the book upon which this film is inspired. The book is written by john. G jones who has written a lot of amityville books in fact he actually started out in show business. He used to be guitarist and vocalist back in australia. For this rock band in the mid nineteen sixties called the missing links. He came to the united states sometime later in the hope that he was going to go further in his music career but his plans changed in nineteen eighty. He met george and kathleen lutz at this cocktail party that was hosted by mutual friends. The let's is if you haven't listened to my previous episodes on this the infamous residents of the amityville home who purported having chilling experiences with the paranormal. It eventually inspired the selling book and the movie of the late nineteen seventies called the amityville horror several months after their meeting. The lutzes implored john g jones to write a follow up to jay. Anson's the amityville horror. This would be about the. Let's experiences after leaving the amityville home. So they entered into an agreement book and film rights. We're going to be left with john g jones as well as paul commission to shop around to try to tell the lead story. The let's as we're going to get some cut of the advances and hopefully some more monetary game in the future. It resulted ultimately in the nineteen eighty-one book. That would be called the amityville horror to it became another bestseller for this amityville story. Now since then. Jones continued writing a number of amityville sequels including admittedly fictional stories as he continued on those included eventually nineteen eighty-eight amityville the evil escapes. Now the let's family. They left their amityville home. They would only been there about twenty days. They vowed never to return after their experiences there after they had left they had some intermediaries auctioned off their belongings sometime later. According to the lenses despite no longer residing amityville there were some sort of evil entities that followed them to their new home in california and in addition to that some who came into the possession of their auctioned items also reported experiencing strange and eerie occurrences in their own homes. So inspired by this. These latter anecdotes were put into the writing of amityville. The evil escapes which was an anthology of six short stories. Meant to shock and scare the people who are naturally attracted to the amityville story now. These fictional stories involve other people not necessarily. The leads is who buy items from the amityville home. They began to experience supernatural events that are caused by the evil that is somehow seeped in or escaped into these items and those items include such things as a power drill a motorcycle a stuffed toy dog and a painting now around the time of the book's publication. A man named steve. White steve white he wants ran the tv movie division for nbc for many years and then he ran new world pictures starting in one thousand nine hundred six before he ventured forth to run his own. Production company steve white productions which later became sometime in the nineteen ninety s steve white entertainment. For one of steve white's first projects. He became interested in adapting the john g john's book the evil escapes into perhaps one. Or maybe more movies to try to get the ball. Rolling white called a man named sandor stern who had worked for a long time. As a television writer he'd also done a movie at nbc under white in nineteen eighty five. John and yoko love story so they had a previous working relationship. More importantly though sanders stern happen to have also written the original screenplay to nineteen seventy-nine 's the amityville horror. The white asked to see if stern must be interested in making one of these six stories contained or maybe more into a television phil. Stern took a look at the book. He read it. He said it was not really keen on this specific stories. That are in the book. But he thought they might be able to make a film using this idea of evil transferring into the objects within a demonic possessed house. You know tied to amityville. Somehow other people have used the amityville name they might as well you know maybe something electric specifically where the evil could travel through the power cable into the object and then come back out when it's plugged in at another location so it could take over the next house now. White felt that even if the story that sandor stern wanted to make was not specifically contained in the book he really wanted the title. The title was gonna sell it. So white bought the rights up to the book for a fee as well as giving a co producer credit to its author. John jones white sold the package to his old company. Nbc as a made for television movie that they would show during their may sweeps run in nineteen eighty nine now in san doors completed screenplay a crack team of catholic priests comes in to the amityville home to the demonic presence within the possessed house. This film seems to ignore the prior amityville sequels. Because if you watched amityville three d you know. The house was destroyed at the end of that film. A cornered by all of these priests and their exorcism techniques. The demon finds refuge by traveling through this power cable into this hideous looking floor lamp. One see the evil traveling through a moving lump in the cables. Almost cartoonish in that way. A sensing the evil has gone from the home. The contents of whatever is left behind in the house are subsequently put up at a yard sale. And that's where we find a frolic. Some older woman spying this hideous lamp for a hundred dollars a steel. She says because she's going to send it to her sister in california as a great gag gift now. That sister is alice lecoq. Alice lives in a giant victorian house overlooking the pacific ocean. That's in this fictional. Northern california town of dan. Kat now alice's. A bitter fuddy-duddy very set in their ways at this point in her life. She's unhappy now to have to take in her. Newly widowed daughter nancy evans and her three grandchildren until they can get back on their feet alice while her daughter and her grandchildren are moving in. She received the lamp and after the open it up she places it prominently in her home despite her household cat and her parrot reporting with great alarm as to its presence for reasons that they basically ignore not long afterwards strange occurrences of course erupt. The evil gets unleashed throughout the house. The malevolent spirit especially targets and influences the youngest of the grandchildren by convincing her. That it is her dead father. Meanwhile one of the priests concludes that the evil may actually transferred into one or more of the house's yard sale items and he starts to sleuth eventually leading to trying to warn the family that they are in possession of a powerful demonic presence that surely may destroy them. Aw now initial advertised plot. Descriptions saint out for publicity for amityville. Evil escapes listed. The mother nancy as the one who would be possessed. The grandmother would come to rescue now either. The early information was wrong or stern revised the story prior to filming because the end product actually has the youngest daughter being the one who the spirit seeks to seduce or a possess. Stern felt that the demon would likely target the weakest person for its possession so naturally the youngest daughter's should be that one the amityville locale while that really only takes place in the first few minutes of the film. The rest of it takes place in grandmother's house early. The evil escape also marks the first amityville entry so far not to film at the toms river. New jersey location. They found a relatively similar home in the town of wilmington in los angeles county california. Stern's wife candy happened to be the production designer for this film as well as quite a few other of his television productions. She put up facade on this house in los angeles county to try to resemble the home in amityville long island new york although with its old quarter moon windows still intact. One of the real life amityville houses owners had changed its appearance and street address to discourage intruders in an unwanted visitors. So the real amityville home really doesn't resemble the amityville home at least in those very infamous windows now as mentioned most of the rest of the evil escapes takes place at the grandmother's victorian mansion in california. Now they couldn't find a house on a bluff overlooking the ocean as was needed for the script but the location manager did find a house. The jam sharp house near santa paula. In ventura county california happened to be kind of on a small elevation. So you really wouldn't if you're looking at it see anything around it or beyond it so that would allow them to make alternate exteriors with some clever editing now wants nag though the elderly woman who owned the house at that time would not let this production film on her property and i was because a few years. Prior another film crew had come in to do a production and they. They trampled her beloved roses that she lovingly cultivated her home despite the producer. Promising they were going to be extra. Careful coincidentally producer of that film was buried bernardi who happened to also be producing the evil escapes a candy stern. She stepped in sanders. Wife stepped in the production designer. She assured the woman she personally was going to take care that her roses were not trampled on at all and eventually she convinced the woman in the got the approval however sander told bernardi he should under no circumstances show his face on the premises or he was going to face the ladies wrath because they could only get approval to shoot the exterior of the house. The interiors were done at a different location. The woodbury story house in alta dena also in california now for the back of the house which would be showed overlooking the bluffs. Well they found a trailer park near the ocean around paradise. Cove living in malibu also in california. They built an upright flat. That would look like the back of a house overlooking the ocean from the bluffs. Now for the main actors. Stern worked with the casting director very closely. They wanted to come up with actors to pursue for each respective part. The really had little trouble casting. The film must've the actors. Were people. stern knew who did television regularly. Patty duke jane wyatt. Norman lloyd they all fit the mold of their respective characters. These were names that came to mind when they were thinking about. Who could play those roles. All were a little bit too established as actors to really ask them to come in and read for the roles so they just took a chance of me. The offer and stern was very happy that these actors agreed to sign on despite undergoing no auditions. Patty do in particular lengthy process air to the production. She was very easy to work with and she made sure that the shoot was enjoyable for everyone as the mother in this film. Jane wyatt has the grandmother. She was known primarily for playing margaret anderson. Who is the mother on the hit. Show from the nineteen fifties called father dose best now although the amityville horror was a wildly popular bestselling book as well as a popular film in the late. Nineteen seventies jane. Wyatt had never actually heard of the amityville property or any of its background before. She initially thought the film when she's being offered it was going to be about the civil war because she was confusing. Amityville with andersonville aka camp sumter the notoriously deplorable confederate prison that housed tens of thousands of union soldiers toward the end of the civil war. Unlike alice lecoq jane. Wyatt was a believer in ghosts because at least for one thing a personal friend of hers who happened to be a ceo of a major insurance company. He talked about having a poltergeist in his home and he would often relate to where his furniture was moving around or how he could hear knocking noises at different times he lived with it because the activity he felt was benign. Wyatt found the part of the grandmother very fun to play primarily because this was a persona. That was very different from the the loving and welcoming margaret anderson character. She was most known for so she was able to branch out as an actor for the older priest. Father manfred sanders. Stern was a great admirers of norman. Lloyd he did a lot of work of the years that he liked. You always wanted to work with him. Lloyd during this period was appearing on television as dr daniel. Oush lander on. Tv's saint elsewhere and that role on saint elsewhere. Actually change the types of other roles. He was being offered at the time. Almost always cast heavy in prior films in his career but now he was getting mostly good guys roles as evidenced here by him representing up a man of the cloth who is seeking to thwart evil. Wherever you can find it jerry bessler. She plays the older of the three grandchildren. Amanda bachelor for horror fans today. You might know her under her. Pseudonym of zillow trilling she kind of has built a cult following over the years for her appearances in horror chillers in one thousand nine hundred nineteen nineties. Cheap eventually left acting in one thousand nine hundred seven. She pursued a career in dance. It didn't pan out for a long time so she currently works as an hr director for mortgage lending company branch in los angeles. playing brian. the middle grandchild has aaron eisenberg. Eisenberg probably will be known to die hard star trek fans. He later played the fringe character. Nog on seven seasons of the tv show deep space nine for the youngest of the three grandchildren brandy gold. She happens to be younger. Sister of tracey gold. Who you might know as carol seaver on the tv. Show pains back in the day. And she also was the younger sister of missy. Gold who played katie. Gatling on the tv show benson brandy also appeared as the young version of elizabeth. The star child in the tv miniseries v the final battle which i covered on an earlier episode. The evil escapes marks brandy goals last credited acting role. Gold essentially quit acting at the age of twelve and then followed in her father's footsteps down the road by becoming a talent agent. The evil escapes with its characters. Seems to make this deliberate connection between the three generations of women in the family as needing to find a way to bond to overcome their dilemma along. They have to find a way to get it together ultimately to thwart the evil presence in the house. Meanwhile the men are relegated as ineffectual from the deceased and absent husband. You have the skittish son. The overwhelmed priests and a couple of victimized smaller characters like the plumber and the helpful boy whose hand gets mangled by shoving it into a garbage disposal and one of the more popular scenes by the way. That actor was portrayed by sander's stearns son jamie. His father told him to stick his hand in the garbage disposal in a very very painful to watch now video releases have added a few extra shots of blood and gore that were there presumably to spice up the international theatrical showings for this film most notably the scene where the boy gets his hand slice and dice in the garbage disposal now. Standard stirring claims. He does not remember shooting that much blood or blood really in the garbage disposal. Seen he suggests somebody came in afterward perhaps and did it. Although you would think considering his son was involved he would remember shooting. His hand getting slashed and blood splattering all over his face but anyway he claims he doesn't remember so continuing the nepotism those not only having his wife involved in the production design as well as the sun as one of the small actors. Stern also hired his other son mark to assist his wife in production design as the art director and another one of his sons sean to assist in the editing during post production special effects in this film their minimal. They're very low tech for what you might expect from an amityville film the lamp. It doesn't do a lot more here than glow one occasion. We see a demonic face superimposed on its glass blow but other scares are pretty mild. There are a few gruesome events melting phones. The dead parrot and a toaster oven that hand mangled in the garbage disposal that stands out body parts and by all that spewed from a sewer pipe into the face of a plumber. It's kinda kinda gross. I guess for television. Anyway there's a sequence where brian the the middle grandchild has chainsaw that starts on its own and then he he can't control where it's going in. That represents one of the films more memorable scenes although that likely is remembered mostly because it's executed in a very silly fashion. If you see this film it's hard to forget that particularly seed. I think one of the common observations among people who watch this film especially for the first time. Is that amityville the evil escapes. The lighting in this film is unusually bright and cheery for a demonic possession. horror film. now. Tom richmond. He was the credited cinematographer but he had no prior experience with the much faster tempo the speed of doing a tv film. Shoot so richmond was told early on by sandor stern that stern was going to work very closely with michael lund. His camera operator on all of the shop placements and movements to keep things running smoothly and that relegated richmond to essentially being much more of a lighting director than as cinematographer and richmond knew that he had two main stars who were older actresses who we felt would want to be shot in soft lighting so they came off looking good and soft. Lighting did not work well with the moody look so he filmed very brightly now. Usually under such circumstances. If you're going to film it in soft lighting. It's it's a more moody film. The production designer would be the one to create a darker environment within that light. But in this case the house interiors as well as the wardrobe all very brightly done. It was a brightly decorated film. Everybody was wearing bright colors so it looked much more like a cheery film which some people actually watch this as if it is meant to be kind of a comedy in its own way and i suppose you could kind take it that way. It is very funny on a certain level. Now the last shot of the film and this will be a spoiler to those of. You haven't seen it so you can skip ahead about a minute. If you haven't sanders was hoping that he was going to be offered a sequel. They made it so we put in a shot at the very end of the film. The houses cat at the beach lamp has been tossed out. The evil makes a transfer into the body of the now. This was not to be amityville. The escapes unfortunately finished a relatively low fifty fourth in the nielsen ratings. For the week of its initial release. It barely beat out a health related. Abc news special called the national cholesterol. That actually shows you just how much people were ignoring this film at the time. It was crushed competition that included new episodes of dallas and falcon crest on. Cbs and it even failed to attract the readings of reruns on abc. For mr belvedere and just attentive ass- so essentially sanders stirrings run. But he had wanted to continue on would end here. Now the franchise obviously did continue on this. Now talk about that in a moment but the evil escapes failed to make a connection at the time and it really has failed to make a big connection to most fans at least of the early amityville works however there is a small contingent among those people who watch films. Ironically they love this kind of horror the sillier the better. You can really have a good time kind of fun of or having fun with depending on your point of view. A movie like amityville. The evil escapes because at no point really. Do you ever take it very seriously. In its execution is so funny in. Its own way. I don't think intentionally. Necessarily but i don't think centre. Stern was really trying to deliver anything more than an entertaining movie for television. So taking it for what it is. It's kind of an entertaining movie to observe at least on that ironic level so for that. I will give this film. Two stars out of four two stars on my scale means that it's lacking something vital. That would keep it from being a movie that i would recommend to most people on that which is lacking obviously is going to be. It's not very scary. It's really really stupid premise. For a film the story is not really that exciting to relate and yet in its defense. It's one of those movies that you love to talk about at work. You say. I watch this crazy movie last night about demonic possessed lamp and it's great to talk about. It's extremely absurd. It's kind of a precursor to another film. That's kind of related somewhat to the amityville series the conjuring series as well as annabel saul an inanimate object that is somehow possessed by a demonic presence. It doesn't move it doesn't do anything. Just looks creepy but yet all these crazy things are happening around it. So if you like those annabel movies i guess you can look at this as kind of a very primitive version of that particular story. Maybe less scary because it's made for television but it's not enough for me to recommend it to a vast majority of people and that's why i can only give it generously probably for most people to stars out of four. Some people might rate it below that two stars out of for. Give amityville the evil escapes now. This was retitled when it came out on home. Video to amityville four. The evil escapes as well as the amityville. Horror able escapes part four. So you might see under different names as you concentrate on the gapes it. You will know that. This is the movie now. John g jones did eventually write a book just the next year. It was called amityville bill. The horror returns which when published to contain the statement on the book soon to be an nbc movie so they did have an idea at the time there were making the evil escape that this was going to be the franchise that understand wanted it to be on television but that movie was canceled. It was never made the low ratings for the evil escapes probably killed it subsequent though did continue on going straight to video over the next few years now those subsequent entries.

Adina Hoffman: Ben Hecht: Fighting Words, Moving Pictures

"I'm Michael Silver Blah this bookworm arm and today I'm very pleased to have as my guest. Adina Hoffman the Dina has written a life of the great almost mind boggling screenwriter Ben. Hecht the book has the Subtitle Fighting Words moving pictures this Ben Hecht had his. Oh would you say finger in so many tries He starts out now having moved with his family to the mid West as soon as he graduates from high school. He realizes this is. The college is not for him and he high tails it to Chicago where he becomes a very well-known newspaper this paper Man Song well known that his adventures in the newspaper business but come perhaps the most is famous play ever to be written about newspapers that he wrote with Charles MacArthur. Yes called the front page. The the front page becomes his girl Friday with cary grant and Rosalind Russell and thereby hangs a tale every the time Ben Hecht turns around. There's a revision of something. He's done a new who've version of it by someone else that he in turn revise right even his own memoirs has multiple versions of what happened to him in his own life life. He's kind of astonishing. This came from the days when face at a writer wrote right. These were people who wrote all the time there's also literary life that Hecht has in Chicago and actually this was one of the fascinating things for me is where his kind of the big city You know newspaper world met the world of the Chicago Renaissance and a lot of the people who were in that newspaper world. People like Carl Sandberg. who was a really good friend of Heck's you know he was also a reporter and they were sort of Newspaperman by day and then by night they were writing their poems in their novels and Hecht was not only hanging around with people like Sherwood Anderson Jason and he was also publishing in the little review which is unbelievable magazine? Push some of the first chapters of James Joyce's ulysses and they felt. What was her name? Margaret Anderson Anderson felt that Ben Heck was every bit as much a member of of the little review says dream straight. And he's there on almost every single issue. He was a kind of a pet of hers. He was sort of in love with her. She was unfortunately Very distracted by high art and she was also a lesbian was not interested in in that way but she loved him and she published him. Ben Has a great fiction writer. I mean he was. He fancied himself self novelist But he was very devoted to that calling but at the same time that he was writing. These very heavy breathing stories for Margaret Anderson. He was also writing he. He was whipping off these commercials stories for Lincoln at the smart set. HMO MINKIN was one of his heroes. Mencken was a cynic cynic and a sophisticated and he had every bit of hostility toward the dumb aspects of American culture. He was trying to make America smart op. He wrote fascinating essays sason books on the American language as opposed to British. We don't get an American writer per se until until Mark Twain who's writing the Mississippi River. Talk that he learned when he was a boatman. Well by the time you've got the middle of the country Chicago you've got gangsters you've got prohibition you've got flappers you've got an American language wood jr that was invented here and Hecht loved. -actly yeah and I think for me. That was one of the wonderful things about spending time with him. I was reading. This book was spending time with his language. I mean whatever you WANNA say about. Whether his books are wonderful books or not so wonderful books he was a wonderful maker of sentences and paragraphs graphs and just terrific wit on top of it and he and Macarthur wrote the front page. which was kind of Valentine to that newspaper World of Chicago? You go where they've both been cub reporters you see. He comes in to the newspaper office. Writing these things. In Extreme Telegraphy Telegraphy as as you quote them right they are made of twenty three delight phrases. He's putting them together hurling them together and eventually he's going to have some fame as the newspaper Komo's rining calms every every day made up of just what he heard some Hobo say right or what some very wealthy people were saying in a casino no to be a writer then will start out as journalists. That's where Hemingway starts. He proposed this idea of. But this daily column that you've mentioned which would become known as a thousand and one afternoons in Chicago and they're kind of remarkable pieces they're just little snippets and there's a sense that the news is not just test the news of the grant headline it's also all these sort of marginal lives and people. You know the guy who runs the laundromat and the woman who works as a manicurist and has to fend off her lecherous clients. There's a way in which he's tossing this stuff off in a very casual way reading them daily. They're published on the back page of the newspaper next to the to the comic strips and he's not taking them too seriously or taking himself too seriously and there's so much better than the fiction into which he was pouring his all of his artistic ambition. That just is not the effective whereas these things that he was doing kind of on the fly as you say they're wonderful and they're incredibly generous and sympathetic. You feel him identifying with all of the city of Chicago In a way they kind of anticipate the work of later colonists people like beat Hamill and Jimmy Breslin. Who would become more famous in a way for doing doing that? who may also by now have been forgotten but act. was doing that early on. I'm talking to Adina Hoffman about. Don't her book Ben. Hecht its subtitle fighting. Words moving pictures and it's published in the Jewish writers series series published by Yale University. Press you mention that a lot of these people have been forgotten even people more recent Jonathan head so why Ben Hair. Well IT'S A. It's the question that I get all the time. And it's a good question and I mean basically at some level I feel like I've known Ben Hecht before before I knew Ben Hecht if you grow up watching American movies. He's his words are in your head even if you've never heard his name and so and I used to watch a lot of old movies as a kid but it was only when I became more conscious conscious and started to read about film history I actually worked as a film critic throughout most of the ninety s Then I was very aware of who Ben Hecht was and I I read his wonderful memoir child trial of the century. And I thought wow you know okay the movies he's known as you know. Pauline Kale called him the greatest American screenwriter Gianluca Dard said he invented eighty percent percent. Of what is used in Hollywood movies today called him a genius and all of that is true but the fact is that for heck the movies were really just a piece of it and in some ways they were actually may be one of the smaller pieces pieces of it in that memoir is full of all these other lives that we've just been talking about so I was first of all fascinated by that multiplicity of his the fact that he could contain multitudes dude but I also was drawn to heck in terms of his relationship to Jewish things. And here's a place where he basically an American Jew who claims not to have really paid much attention to the fact of his Jewishness until his consciousness was sort of raised by the Holocaust there.

"In turn provide smooth right even his own memoirs he has multiple versions of what happened to him and his he's kind of astonishing this came from the days when faces a writer wrote me these are people who wrote all the time there's also a whole literary life that hacked has in Chicago and actually this was one of the fascinating things for me is where his kind of big city yeah you know newspaper world met the world of the Chicago renaissance and a lot of the people who were in that newspaper world people like Carl Sandburg who was a really good friend of hacks you know he was also reporter and they were sort of newspapermen by day and then by night they were writing their problems in their novels and Hecht was not only hanging around with people like sure with Anderson and he was also publishing in the little review which is this unbelievable magazine push some of the first chapters of James Joyce's Ulysses and they felt what was her name Margaret Anderson Anderson felt that Ben Hecht was every bit as much a member of the little river view says James straight a's and he's there on almost every single issue he was a kind of a pet of hers he was sort of in love with her she was unfortunately very distracted by high art and she was also a lesbian who was not interested in Ben Hecht in that way but she loved him and she published him Ben Hecht is not a great fiction writer I mean he was he fancied himself a novelist but he was very devoted to that calling but at the same time that he was writing these very sort of heavy breathing stories from market Anderson he was also writing he was whipping off these commercial stories for Mangan at the smart set HL Mencken was one of his heroes Mencken was a cynic and a sophisticated and he hand every bit of hostility toward the dome aspects of American culture he was trying to make America smart up he willed fascinating essays and books on the American language as opposed to British we don't get an American writer per se until more Twain who's riding the Mississippi River talks that he learned when he was a boat right well one of the time you've come to the middle of the country Chicago you've got gangsters you've got a prohibition you've got flappers you've gotten American language that was invented here and Hecht loft Ackley yeah and I think for me that was one of the wonderful things about spending time with them as I was writing this book was spending time with his language I mean whatever you want to say about whether his books are wonderful books or not so wonderful books he was a wonderful maker of sentences and paragraphs and just a terrific weight on top of it yeah and he and macarthur you know they wrote the front page which is this kind of Valentine to that newspaper world of Chicago where they'd both been cub reporters you see he comes in to the newspaper office writing these things in extreme telegraph users you will arrive they are made of twenty three it's good to like free that he says putting them together hurling them together right and eventually he is going to have some fame as a newspaper column this running homes every day made up of just what he heard some hobos right war war some very wealthy people were saying in the casino to be a writer then we'll start out as a journalist that's where Hemingway store yeah he proposed this idea of a this daily column that you mentioned which would become known as a thousand and one afternoons in Chicago and they're kind of remarkable pieces there just a little snippet and there's a sense that the news is not just the news of the grand headline it's also all the sort of marginal lives and people you know the guy who runs a laundromat and the woman who works as a manicurist and has to fend off her lecherous clients there's a way in which he's tossing the stuff off in a very casual ways writing them daily they're published on the back page of the newspaper next to the to the comic strips and he's not taking them too seriously or taking himself too seriously and there's so much better than the fiction into which he was pouring his all of his artistic ambition that just is not that effective wears these things that he was doing kind of on the fly as you say they're wonderful and they're incredibly generous and and sympathetic you feel him identifying with all of the city of Chicago in a way they kind of anticipate the work of later calmest people like Pete Hammel and Jimmy Breslin who would become more famous in a way for doing that who may also by now have been forgotten but act was doing that early on hello I'm talking to a dean Hoffman a belt her book Ben Hecht its subtitle fighting words moving pictures and it's published in the Jewish writers series published by Yale University Press you mentioned that a lot of these people have been forgotten even people more recent than heck so why Ben had well it's a it's a it's the question that I get all the time and it's a good question and I mean basically at some level I feel like I've known Ben Hecht before I knew Ben Hecht if you grew up watching American movies he's his words are in your head even if you've never heard his name and so when I used to watch a lot of old movies as a kid but was only when I became more conscious in sort of started to read about film history I actually works the film critic throughout most of the nineties then I was very aware of who Ben Hecht was and I I read his wonderful memoir child of the century and I thought wow you know okay the movies he's known as you know Pauline Kael called him the greatest American screenwriter John the go dard said he invented eighty percent of what is used in Hollywood movies today and call him a genius and all that's true but the fact is that for hacked the movies were really just a piece of it and in some ways they were actually maybe one of the smaller pieces of it and that memoirs full of all these other lives we've just been talking about so I was first of all fascinated by that multiplicity of his the fact that he could contain multitudes but I also was drawn to Hector in terms of his relationship to Jewish things in here is a place where he basically is an American Jew who claims not to have really paid much attention to the fact of his Jewishness until his consciousness was sort of raised by the Holocaust there he's been in Chicago he knows the woman editing the little review he knows call center he knows sure would landers he moved to New York becomes friends with Herman mango with Herman Mankiewicz and also the room today Dorothy Parker and Benchley N. S. J. Perelman and the gone Quinn New Yorker gang he moves to Los Angeles he draws one soon Manny too he has nothing but contempt for the people who started the motion picture industry you say that you're interested in hex Judaism but those were heads to Sarah he didn't want from there a lot a lot of Jews in hex wife he was actually born on the Lower East Side and he spent the first few years of his life there and I don't actually think that that's on important I mean he grew up in Racine Wisconsin which is this pastoral American place at cetera but there is a way in which those tenements were in him in a very deep way these people yeah used to be sure motor sales around they were the makers of clothing right opened little movie parlors and eventually come out to Los Angeles why because you can make movies year round they're very practical minded people right it's not raining all the time they can make movies and he goes to work for them and he has the ability of a newspaper man right he can turn in the story overnight soon he can ride on the back of an envelope famously which is the one who turns in well they're a bunch of stories I need to lose says that he just scrawled something on the back of an envelope and send it in and it became this double trouble it yeah I mean that's apocryphal I don't know but in general it's said that he ripped off movies like Scarface in a matter of like a week maybe ten days he gives different versions at different times and had a ball because when you think of how long it takes for kids who've graduated from film school right to finish one screenplay in the time he'd have written for a full life and wouldn't Friedman's before of five more and it's interesting because I mean his contempt for the contempt he claimed to have for the movies was very intense and I think in a way that contempt almost made it easier for him to be working at this pace and not to be sort of so caught up in the great the art of it because as far as he was concerned it wasn't an art well you see it's also why you think that he didn't know his own gifs yeah his own gives involve the movie scripts he rolled his riding in some forms of reddit sometimes it's very funny sometimes it's very scabrous but it's very rarely any good I mean look there are pieces of it that I would defend but I don't think that that's weird talk about he's not that's not what he should be remembered for his fiction at least I do think that his memoirs are really is my more so a lot of fun to have and they'll be a new addition of chart of the century which is perhaps his very best ball I would agree earned he comes and he wants the text first soon movie no longer people don't feel the need to lose the woman who later wrote gentlemen prefer blondes was riding subtitles for silent movies this wasn't an easy thing to do either right but he writes a silent film for Joseph von Sternberg underworld yeah right yeah and you surprised me in this revelation we discover that hex grip takes place most of it in bright daylight very bright daylight end Sternberg's movie is early in war it's very dark it's very cloudy it's very moody head takes a look at it and doesn't really good won't says his mom and right yeah this isn't my script yeah it's one of the reasons he says he doesn't like Hollywood they don't take the writers seriously enough but it's one of the great silent movies of all time even one of the great movie yeah but I actually think that it's a film that draws its power from the meeting of these mines of of on Sternberg's own sort of this very moody dark sensibility and hex ostensibly hard boiled one they somehow come together in this very intense and beautiful right isn't a thrilling because in a certain sense Vance what the movies OR the meeting especially early on the meeting of opposites yeah the meeting of opposing minds even you're sh Monticello men knew that when you put together a writing department he wanted a bunch of different kinds of writers re writing each other because it would make the richest mix no none of people still today say no fair why didn't any of Nathaniel Willis movies get made the way he wrote the more foreclosures war fitzgerald the better the writer the harder the time they had in Hollywood but it seems to me you correct me if I'm wrong please this man had had a very good time in Hollywood yeah I think he had a great time and so this is one of those things that makes you wonder about young he's makes these grand explorations about how movies are what retarded Americans and kept them from becoming a civilized people and he says that and he does things like when they give him an Oscar for underworld the very first Oscar for Best strive for he sends it back he says he would doesn't want this thing it is a piece of hack work in basically I am a man.

"Drew. We've talked about this a lot you when it comes to. The way we've you politicians and want to get to the phone. Call here assertive to set the stage on this like, I I wonder I genuinely wonder what it is like to be an Ilhan Omar in this situation. Right. Everybody's human. How was she genuinely dealing dealing with this? Yeah, I'd be curious looking at her background and how much of an activist. She has been not being an activist to myself. I can't help. But wonder if there is a big part of her that actually really thrives off of this. They're really enjoys being the provocateur or that she is. And that really revels in the fact that so many people are paying attention to or even in a negative way. I just I just I don't I don't know. I'm very curious. Yeah. I don't know. I don't know what's in her heart. I don't know what's in her head. I can only judge her words in her actions. You know, and the things that she says and the things that she does and the things that she supports. She doesn't appear to me to be genuinely apologetic. She appears to me to be very much enjoying all of the attention the attention from Trump the attention from the media the attacks. She seems to be one of those people that thrives on being a target as she's a social Justice warrior, and she's an activist and she's been involved in controversial provocative political activism for a very long time. You go back and look look at her background you've been arrested for being involved in in in in illegal protests, and civil disobedience type things and the people, you know, the mindset and the personality that attracted to that sort of behaviour sort of rebels. They want the attention. Yeah. She's really playing. She's she's really acting very entitled in in in all of it in my opinion, coming off his very very entitled Jennifer's Alinsky ran against a Ilhan, Omar in the in the last election, unfortunately because Jeffrey Dahmer could put a DFL next to his name and win an election in that district. She did not win. But she is joining us now. Good morning. All right. Thank you for having the end. You're right. It was I could have I could be the best person best candidate in the world with the are by my name. It was you know, unfortunately, not a winning ticket. I in my mind, you were the best candidate in the world. Thank you. Thank you. Just as much as it did. Yeah. We're the popular vote. Jennifer Zielinski in in our minds, you one. I was just going to point out. This media thing has been going on forever. People have been really just asking her questions and she loves to avoid it. What she I was elected to the Minnesota legislature. I know, and, you know, alpha news tends to be a little bit more conservative a couple of other conservative media sources, but they kept asking her questions, and you know, I'll touch bait fairly on the marriage thing. But the marriage thing some of her other controversies she runs away from it, even during the campaign with campaign finance violations, which have disappeared mysteriously. Right. Yeah. Whatever happened to that. The right people got elected is what I tell people. Okay. But like the Star Tribune and MPR touched on them. But you know, the moment she got defense over rated it. They'd just they'd stop asking about it. They did a really good work up in late October about her campaign finance violations and asking issue. I mean, the fact that they even put this out. There was amazing obviously wasn't enough. But during a debate with her and myself on NPR, Tom clan asked her about her campaign finance violations. She could not give a straight answer. There's a. Yeah. There is she lives in this wonderful bubble where she's able to refuse to answer any questions and he controversial questions because she can just say you're only coming at me because you're a conservative. You're only coming at me because I'm so progressive, and I'm so radical in a woman of color, and all of these things, you know, she's got several layers of inoculation to to avoid having to answer any tough questions. And and it does it speaks to John was mentioning that sense of entitlement. She is there because it is the righteous place for her to be in her cause is so righteous exactly. And nobody says they don't continue to press her on the issues, which is why she's unfortunately gotten so far there were better democrat candidates, including Margaret Anderson Kelleher and Patricia Torres Ray. That's I don't agree with their views, but just highly more qualified than she was. Yeah. And that and that's. Thank you for your call, Jennifer, really, appreciate it. That's what I was alluding to earlier. You can't tell me that the DFL cannot do a better job of someone who is actually going to work towards advancing their political agenda and not draw so much controversy in an embarrassment onto the state of Minnesota. But what is she advancing? What ideological you know, a platform item. What agenda it has has she as she even made any steps to advance since she's been in congress other than draw a whole bunch of negative attention onto herself in the state of Minnesota. Let's go and talk with a friend of the show rob door wants to comment on this. Good morning. Rob. What are your what are your thoughts? So I asked an activist. I can give a little bit of insight into the mentality. You know, when I've got my gun owners caucus hat on. I am serving the gun owners of the state of Minnesota, which means all work with pro gun. Democrats who I may disagree with on every other issue because that's within the best interest of my, you know, for lack of better term constituency with the gun owners of Minnesota the real question with Omar is you have to ask her constituency. And it's clearly not the people the fifth district is clearly whatever activist groups that a propped her up as superstar. And so her actions are to to highlight their agenda to make their point. It's clearly not serve the people of the fifth district. Do you think that is going to be do you think that's going to matter term? I mean, does she does she feel so entitled to this position as a safe in the seat that she can let's just we'll we'll go off of your assessment being being big valid, and I feel like it is Nick Zerwas called earlier in the hour and said, you know, in the long term, this may not be benefiting the DFL, and they may see this as a mistake. What are your thoughts on that? Yeah. I think Nick was on point when he was saying that Yoshi maybe primary from somebody who's more qualified and more palatable. I think even you know that that. DFL fight as much as I love gentlemen ski. And you know, for sure great candidate, I know champion, she she knew that she was able to be that that that voice further conservative of the district. But I think that her actions are so negative that is going to turn off enough of the people within the heart of the DFL party. They'll still put up a somebody who's Iraq progressive. But it'll be somebody who's not gonna barris the party while they do it. Yeah. I feel like that that she is going to receive pressure to knock it off. Or that is going to happen in the question is going to be who is she going to listen to because his she ends up sort of listening to people around her telling her to knock it off. She's just going to become very ineffective because I don't think that's I don't think she knows how to do anything else. End up getting a self preservation, kicking intoning message down when it comes closer to election. Time voters have a really short memory all of this stuff. That's happening right now may not matter at all in a year and a half rob door has always been. Hey, thanks for the comments. I was great. Appreciate it. Good to hear from you. Let's go and talk with John from Florida. Good morning, John. What are your thoughts on this? Hi, Mike, good trend. Rob. I agree with them that, you know, people have a short memory. So we she you riles up the liberal base the progressive base now. But by the time election comes around things will be different. But I also having grown up in Chicago politics. I see it more as chest than checkers and people like Cossio Cortes, and MS Omar. What they can serve to do is by being as outrageous and radical as they are when it comes time to the twenty twenty election, they will make whoever the Democrats finally come up with as a nominee look by comparison. Almost centrist. I've seen this happen in Chicago politics as well. Yeah. They'll have a real confident. Kind of a controversial election in a certain area with a lot. And then what happens is the dark horse comes in. And well, let's just settle down people, blah, blah, blah. My has a long-term prediction, watch Tulsi Gabbard. She has everything that you would want. If I were running a candidate. She's got a great back story. He's in the military. She shouldn't checks up several heretofore, unchecked identity boxes. But the best thing is, she's smart, and she's engaging. She doesn't have the offputting style of Kamala Harris or the ninety s of Cossio Cortez. I would I would fear very much as we get closer to winnowing the field down the democrat party. She's she's an intriguing candidate. Thanks for your call. John. I totally agree. I think she's a very intriguing candidate. And she seems to be sort of the the left she she seems to represent a very left libertarian point of view, which is going to be attractive to a lot of people. Not just not just liberals the problem. She's going to have is. I think she's going to find herself sort of in the Ron Paul role from the left, and I think she's going to get a bit Ron palled the establishment because she's she's out there saying and advocating for a lot of things that establishment Democrats find utterly distasteful. We're gonna be talking with Fox News contributor, a friend of the show. Katie Pavlovich next got a couple of things that we want to we want to get get you particularly McCain's comments about bringing forward the obstruction investigation against Trump just to make sure that the Russian investigation stayed alive. And we'll also get her thoughts. I mean, it's been a week or so she'd been a couple of weeks now has talked to Katie and Ilhan Omar said a whole lot in that period of time. And he's got some opinions, exactly. So we'll be typing into that with Katie pallets next Justice.

"Talked about this a lot you when it comes to. The way we view politicians and want to get to the phone call here of to to set the stage on this like, I I wonder I genuinely wonder what it is like to be an Ilhan Omar in this situation. Right. Everybody's human. How is she genuinely dealing dealing with this? Yeah, I'd be curious looking at her background and how much of an activist. She has been not being an activist to myself. I can't help. But wonder if there is a big part of her that actually really thrives off of this. They're really enjoys being the provocateur that she is. And that really revels in the fact that so many people are paying attention to or even in a negative way. I just I just I don't I don't know. That'd be very curious. Yeah. I don't know. I don't know what's in her heart. I don't know what's in her head. I can only judge her words in her actions. You know, and the things that she says and the things that she does and the things that she supports. She doesn't appear to me to be genuinely apologetic. She appears to me to be very much enjoying all of the attention the attention from Trump the attention from the media the tax. She seems to be one of those people that thrives on being a target as she's a social Justice warrior, and she's an activist and she's been involved in controversial provocative political activism for a very long time. You go back and look look at her background. She's been arrested for being involved in in in in illegal protests, and civil disobedience type things and the people, you know, the mindset and the and the personality that has attracted to that sort of behaviour sort of rebels. They want the attention. Yeah. She's really playing. She's and she's really acting very entitled in in in in all of it, in my opinion, coming off his very, very entitled Jennifer's Alinsky ran against a Ilhan, Omar in the in the last election in unfortunately because Jeffrey Dahmer could put a DFL next to his name and win an election in that district. She did not win. But she is joining us now. Good morning. All right. Thank you for having the and you're right. It was I could have I could be the best person in the world with the are by my name. It was you know, unfortunately, not a winning ticket. I in my mind, you were the best candidate in the world. Thank you. Thank you just as much as it did. Yeah. We're the popular popular vote. Jennifer Zielinski in Ann Arbor. Binds you one. And I was just going to point out. This media thing has been going on forever. People have been really just asking her questions and she loves to avoid it. What did she I was elected to the Minnesota legislature? I know, and, you know, alpha news tends to be a little bit more conservative a couple of other conservative media sources, but they kept asking her questions, and I'll touch base fairly on the marriage thing. But the marriage thing some of her other controversies she runs away from it, even during the campaign with campaign finance violations, which have disappeared mysteriously. Right. Yeah. Whatever happened to that. The right people got elected is what I tell people. Okay. But like the Star Tribune and NPR touched on them. But you know, the moment she dot defense over rated it. They'd just they'd stop asking about it. They did a really good work in late October about her campaign finance violations and ask you this you I mean, the fact that they even put this out. There was amazing obviously wasn't enough. But during a debate with her and myself on NPR, Tom clan asked her about her campaign finance violations. She could not give a straight answer. There's a. Yeah. There is she lives in this wonderful bubble where she's able to refuse to answer any questions and he controversial questions because she can just say you're only coming at me because you're a conservative. You're only coming at me because I'm so progressive, and I'm so radical in man, I'm a woman of color, and all of these things, you know, she's got several layers of inoculation to to avoid having to answer any tough questions. And and it does it speaks to what John was mentioning that sense of entitlement. She is there because it is the righteous place for her to be her cause is so righteous exactly. And nobody says they don't continue to press her on the issues, which is why she's unfortunately, gotten so far there were better democrat candidates included, Margaret Anderson Callahan, Patricia Torres Ray, it's I don't agree with their views, but just highly more qualified than she was. Yeah. And that and that's. Thank you for your call, Jennifer, really appreciate it that. That's what I was alluding to earlier. You can't tell me that the DFL cannot do a better job of someone who is actually going to work towards advancing their political agenda and not draw so much controversy in an embarrassment onto the state of Minnesota. What what is she advancing what ideological a platform item? What agenda it has has she as she even made any steps to advance since she's been in congress other than draw a whole bunch of negative attention under herself in the state of Minnesota. Let's go and talk with a friend of this show. Rob door to comment on this. Good morning. Rob. What are your? What are your thoughts? So as an activist. I can give a little bit of insight into the mentality. You know, when I got my gun owners caucus hat on. I am serving the gun owners of the state of Minnesota, which means all work with pro gun. Democrats who I may disagree with on every other issue because that's within the best interests of my, you know, you know, for lack of better term constituency with the gun owners of Minnesota. So the real question with Omar is you have to ask her constituency. And it's clearly not the people the fifth district. It's clearly whatever activist groups that have propped her up as superstar. And so her actions are to to highlight their agenda to make their point. It's clearly not serve the people of the districts. Do you think that is going to be do you think that's gonna matter long term? I mean, does she does she feel so entitled to this position? So safe in the seat that she can let's just we'll we'll go off of your assessment being being big valid, and I feel like it is Nick Zerwas called an earlier in the hour and said, you know, in the long term, this may not be benefiting the DFL, and they may see this as a mistake. What are your thoughts on that? Yeah. I think Nick was on point when he was saying that Yoshi may be primary from somebody who's more qualified and more palatable. I think even that that. It is going to be a DFL fight as much as I love gentlemen ski. And you know, I sure great candidate. I know champion she she knew that she was able to be that that that that voice for conservative of the district.

She's just going to become very ineffective because I don't think that's I don't think she knows how to do anything else. Ended up getting a self preservation kicking and toning. Her message down when it comes closer to election. Time voters have a really short memory all of this stuff.
