"Takeaway. So if you've got a low range, that means if you've got a four wheel drive system with a low range, you're probably going to be pretty capable. You're looking at vehicles like Wrangler and forerunner and Tacoma and you know a lot of trucks and the new Bronco. And some land rovers. They've got this low range, which is really designed for off road slogging, rock crawling sand stuff like that. Um, and you know, you still have the caveat out there is all wheel drive pretty much you leave it on all the time. You never have to worry about it never have to touch it. And that makes it great for today's consumers who think their cars are toasters. But, uh, for for real, Uh, driving affection animals for guys like Jim that like to go off road you want true mechanical, four wheel drive, which means there's no electronic wizardry going on. Basically, actual gears are deciding where the power's going. Uh, and those systems are pretty much bulletproof. They've been around since the fifties, and they've been perfected. And you can shift into a low range and get additional torque so that you can really do some impressive things. But then you've got these crossovers now that claim their off road vehicles right and they've got electronic wizardry. That's That's making them a little bit more capable. And and I don't know if you've experienced this Jim. But I have is that electronic wizardry times out. You know, there's like a lifetime. There's like a time limit on how long they can continue to do the things and and and make it more capable before they say, You know what? We're overheating or were overwhelmed then we're done. That's happened to me on more than a few vehicles driving home in snowstorms where kind of lights come on on the dashboard and say, You know the vehicle stability or the brake torque transfer is no longer, um, available because the system is overwhelmed and you can still drive it. It's not like it breaks. It just shuts those driving AIDS off. So think about it. You know, Jim, I mean and and Rob, Think about it as if you're if you're really going to go off roading, you want to get four wheel drive with a low range? And if you just want a little bit more traction in the bad snow, you're good with all wheel drive. Very good. Good to know Jim Cruise nights. I was just out in Plainfield, southwest of Chicago recently. They have a cruise night out there, and I had not been to one in quite some time, and I was just tickled by the amount of cars that I saw. The variety of cars that I saw and the one that stuck out to me was this old Thunderbird. It had the cool, spare tire. Encased on the on the back end of it. And it was. It was a pink color, but not a Mary Kay sort of pink. It was this metallic pink. And it had the spark lease, you know all around, and whoever owned this particular Thunderbird obviously took very good care of it because it was in mint condition. We've got cruise nights coming up, Jim, tell us about them. We do. It's summer and in a sign of summer is are these cruise nights that come back weekly time and time again, And so we've compiled whatever list we can UN drive Chicago so you can check out to see a full listing there, and if you know of any, please reach out to us, A lot of snow will get them added. Monday night up in McHenry at their outdoor theater swing by for tuners, imports, rat rods and motorcycles from 4 30 to 7 30. That's what it kind of like what these crews nights. They all have different themes. So you can go every week and something and not see the same car as because if it's a theme night, you know if you want to see imports and tuners, you know, head up to McKendry. But if you want Pontiacs go to my prospect. But then in Tuesday and Tuesday go out to hillside at 49, 50, Washington Street and hillside comments from 5 to 9. They've got one going on. And then Wednesday in the mind, Harley Davidson and custom bike night in historic downtown the mind my father in law's listening, He's a Harley guy. This might be one to take a ride out there and get her an excuse to get on the bike. 69 in Lamont for Harley Davidsons. Good stuff. Yeah, Be sure to reach out to us by the way with any cruise night information, then, of course, if you have any questions will be more than happy to read them on the show as well. We wrap up another week. Mark Bailey, general manager of Dr Chicago and Chicago Auto Show Marketing Director Jim Oh, Brill. So next week, we will take a look at the Buick envision. In the meantime, gym work, and listeners find out about vehicles, car care and more. We can visit dr Chicago dot com or follow us on.

"I was GONNA ask originally. Are there any stories that surprised and now I have to ask how many of I mean they all did. They all surprise me. Part of what surprised. Me was the permissiveness. In terms of public outrageousness ourageous nece in misbehaving was just way out of measure with what I had imagined and with what it is now. I mean that these stars would pass out and super bowls and end up naked in pools with this regularity and did they were fine. They had reputations maybe but their careers didn't implode and they weren't torn torn apart in the press for it and they weren't not getting hired back and uninsurable or whatever that's different than it is now but I would imagine in large part that head to have contributed to the founding of the Hollywood coat both on screen and off. I mean onscreen. They were limiting. What could be shown in film but the exploits were certainly the talk of the town? Yeah Yeah I think so and I think that there was a kind of puritanical tightening up of how they wanted people to behave and how they wanted them to be represented in. The code was was enforced to do that. We talked earlier about how the start of talkies meant that. Suddenly you had scripts. You had to have lines that had to be memorized memorized. And well. That's another point to which I didn't bring up is that you did have to do more work in preparation and remember your lines and that also maybe put some limits on the revelry But what other changes happened over the years in terms of how Hollywood was partying. Well I mean I think a big change that happened was people shooting on location much more and the of moving equipment and the desire to go to different locations and film in some ways that started early and chaplain was doing that and people were doing that but for for a lot of the years it seems to me. The first half of the last century so much production was happening in town on studio lots so kept all the actors in town. They lived here. They worked here. And in that way they went out to these places Chasen's and Romanovs encierros and the Polo Lounge and Brown Derby. They were just places were they knew they would be sort of welcomed and protected and also seen and then they would find each other there and so in that way. I think it was a hard charging community that it it may be became less so over time when people could live in different places and when worked for months in New Orleans or in you know Atlanta arm wherever aside from personalities you talked about the places that are now institutions but back then were not you mentioned garden of Allah a famous famous hotel. Yeah and the Beverly Hills Hotel which when it was built was almost a disaster for the owner because nobody was living in Beverly Hills what he did he couldn't get people to come out that far. I I mean one of the things that was interesting for me and moving to Hollywood in writing about these places was looking for ones that were still around and not so many of them are I mean the Beverly Hills Hotel L. is and Musso and frank grill is but there's a lot of other places you know carneval as not cock and bull like different ones and yeah these contributed to partying being in it was an important ingredient in making it all happen. The book does talk about different places sometimes the case of the Brown Derby which had a cocktail the Brown Derby and whether they invented the cocteau himself so it was invented and named after them which is one of my favorite cocktails which is bourbon grapefruit juice and honey syrup or the cock and bull which he's credited with inventing the Moscow mule and had to do with the fact that the owner of the cock and bull was making and distributing his own brand of ginger Beer and he found himself saddled with too many cases of SMIRNOFF and he had a surplus of his own brew that he was hoping wouldn't go bad and so in this sort of desperate Britt did he kind of poured it all together. He decided he often just mix my remaining ginger beer with this vodka and added some lime and served it up and he served served at actually in the copper Mug and one of the actors who hung out. There was a great character actor Roderick Crawford who is through giant man and a big drinker and he apparently was the first customer former to give it a try. He liked it a lot. He said it had a bit of a kick to it. So that's how the Moscow mule was born the drink with the velvet kick before we wrap any other stories stories that you want to share with us. Well I could read a fun. One about Ava Gardner. There's a lot of men who were hard drinking and big screen personalities. In that way but there I also a lot of women who were having their own fun in wild time in Ava Gardner has perhaps my favorite quote in the entire book. A party isn't a party without a drunken bitch lying in a pool of tears which may be configured for your New Year's party probably not a good goal to shoot for now when I think about it though. The story and Ava Gardner all region that we had a wonderful time. That was all she would say. Ava Gardner during Frank Sinatra had met before years ago at Macondo back when she was still married to Mickey Rooney Sinatra had led with soft open something to the effect of wishing he'd gotten to her. First Gardner found him charming. They bumped into each other a few times thins at various nightclubs. There's even been a dinner date once after. She'd left Artie Shaw. They kissed a bit at the end of the evening but Sinatra was still married to Nancy and had kids so she hadn't let it get too far. This time though is different. They were at Daryl's Gerald Xanax. House in Palm Springs for a party. It was fall. Nineteen forty nine Sinatra. As usual was flirting with her crazy she put up with it for a while then reminded him once. He got too pushy that he was still married now. He insisted he and Nancy were finished for good in seeing as he was now available would he be interested in going for a drive. Gardner grabbed a fifth of whatever for the road. While Sinatra quite famously had a predilection for Jack Daniels to garner the tape of booze hardly mattered. It all tasted like hell to her. Anyway so bottling hand. She climbed into Sinatra's Cadillac convertible in the two of them sped off into the desert night. swigging all the way by the time they came to it was stop in the little town of the streets were deserted Sinatra pulled her clothes they kissed and kissed and at some point during their escalating passion Sinatra reached into his glove compartment in pulled out a gun scratch that he pulled out two guns both Smith and Wesson thirty eight naturally. They began to shoot up the street lights hardware store window several rounds that ended up who knows where Sinatra hit the accelerator and they kept on shooting all the way back to the highway. It was a few hours later. When Sinatra Actress Publicist Jack? Keller received a phone call from the police station. They had a story that hasn't yet reached the press. Not just a story about frank. Sinatra's drunken arrest but a story of his drunken arrests while out with famous actress who wasn't his wife in if Keller wanted to keep it under wraps he would need to get to India fast. The police back then were so much more. Amenable Keller immediately called a friend who managed the Hollywood knickerbocker hotel borrowed thirty thousand dollars and took a charter flight out of Burbank. By early morning he paid off anyone. You want who might have been inclined to talk the cops. The hardware store owner some poor drunk schmuck who'd been grazed by one of the bullets Sinatra and Garner were released without further incident Gardner for her part denied. Any of this ever happened. When she returned to the house he was renting in Palm Springs and her older sister Baffi asked how her night with Sinatra had been all she would say was? We had a wonderful time so I guess the bottom line is for our whole show have a great time on New Year's Eve. Just oh get caught. The book is Great. I do recommend it is available on Amazon and elsewhere of all the GIN joints stumbling stumbling through Hollywood history Mark Bailey.

Actually but quote the begins to Lula bankhead is. My father warned me about men and alcohol but he never said anything about women and cocaine probably the best part she ever played was herself sure to Lula. bankhead occasionally received good notices for her stage and screen performances is better fame rested almost entirely on the strength of her offscreen south a hard drinking Lebanese force of nature. It's likely even her peers. Could only they tell you a handful of films that she played but her alcohol and cocaine fueled affairs were legendary. There was the time she threw a dinner party at her estate which was is called windows and passed out facing super bowl before the champagne was even poured or how she bragged of having bedded over five hundred men and women bankhead by the way off and described herself as ambidextrous and then there was the nudist thing. bankhead would often answer the door completely naked. This was before the years in which consumed five packs of cigarettes in two fifths of old Granddad Bourbon Day. She claimed she could drink a bottle in thirty minutes. She took up residence at the hotel. Hotel nicknamed the easy. Lay in Burgess Meredith memoir so far so good. The actor talks about first meeting bankhead. He arrived at a party in her. Sweet tweet only defined bankhead stark naked passing out cocaine and boost guest having finished her hostess duties. She confided that she was dying of quote. The grand desire in subsequently pulled young narrative into her bedroom. Apparently the moaning and groaning were operatic. But just before consummation bankhead pushed him besides saying for God's Sakes don't come inside me. I'm engaged to Jock Whitney. That would be the son of famed businessman. Payne Whitney bankhead would forever maintain and what I do with my bits and pieces is my business and for every fan that I lose stuffy two more. Come along who approve of my lifestyle and indeed bank heads escapades escapades. Were funnier and more risque than any film comedy. She could have hoped to act in a legendary. Such incident occurred the summer of one thousand nine hundred thirty three two years after she returned from a triumphant decade long stretch in the London theater in the mood for an extended party bank had did what any in the know. Actress would have done in those days as she showed up. Resplendent in a heavily beaded gown and diamonds. If the garden of Allah she's spend most of the evening making is at Johnny Weissmuller. The Olympic gold medal swimmer who had just made his Hollywood debut as Tarzan but by five in the morning she had grown tired of simply wondering what lay hidden beneath his loincloth. There are at least two different versions of what happened next next. One is the to Lula having thus far failed in her advances on waste Mueller decided to pull a dams Linda Stress Fling herself into the pool fully closed screaming that she was going to drown around. Someone didn't save her. Someone like perhaps the Olympic swimmer standing nearby. The other version is that she and waste. Mueller drunkenly Dovan together. Whatever the beginning this the story share their most crucial detail? It's ending once in the water to Luna's dress and diamonds found their way to the bottom of the pool and chief found her way into voice. Mueller's arms naked Bacon. He carried her out of the pool. The gathered reveller stared at the spectacle of Tarzan in the naked socialite. Everybody's been dying to see my body to Lula told the remaining parties I now you can..

"Well you know one of the things that struck me is that some of the stories are just flat out funny and others looking through them them through the Lens of today kind of sad. Yeah I agree. Talk to me about the research because almost all of these stories I'd never heard was an enormous amount of research which one thing that we decided early on and we had done this. This is Ed Hemingway and I and our earlier book is. We weren't gonNA write about anybody who is living we sort of had to rules. We weren't gonNA write about anybody who's living thing and we were going to generally stick to people who were known to be hard drinkers. Did it was part of their public figure. We weren't sort of outing. Somebody who is a closet drinker. It wasn't known for that so probably the richest sources. Were Memoir in autobiography. Because those were sort of first person accounts I mean like in the story I read about beat the Devil Oswald Morris did write his own autobiography called Houston. We have a problem and he tells lots of firsthand stories as Houston cinematographers and. That was great. You know so. Those first person accounts were really useful. Does a lot in magazines and newspapers of the time the very public figures so for example with Bogart in the panda fiasco and the lines that he was quoted as saying in the courtroom those were covered in the press but it was Significant undertaking and we did create a bibliography at the back of the book. Because after we'd done so much research we thought we should really listed out there so other other folks can dive in but we did find two sources for everything so there wasn't anything that we relied on a single source for. How long did this take took a few years? We bit off more than we'd get. Choose got got ad was illustrating books. He writes children's books. And I make documentary films so cross this for years. I was making films and writing other things. There was so much research that went into this. I don't know how you found time to do anything else. Yeah well we had helped with that to you get researchers and sometimes they pull stuff in I and they do. Have I pass it in. You know we're looking for very specific parts of someone's life The other thing that is really helpful the came about in this. Was this kind of difference. I think between our first book on writers and our second book on Hollywood which were probably five six years apart was being able to get books on kindle because because then you can word search in that actually allows you to move through books much more easily an isolated parts that might involve the social life. The drink of the work is extraordinary. I mean you go all the way back to the very beginnings of Hollywood in the silent era. Yeah it goes from the silent era in the early days. The Buster Astor Keaton's and Mabel Norman's and John Gilbert's and Marian Davies all of those folks all the way through the seventies and people like Sinatra and Mitcham Ava Gardner owner Lee Marvin. So it's a big stretch. This is a story about Lee Marvin. He's certainly Samson his quote quite tough. He says Tequila Straight. There's a real polite drink you keep drinking until you finally take one more and it just won't go down then you know you've reached your lemon. Just start driving. He'll oh come down. At least that was the logic director John Boorman and his wife Christel had just finished dinner with Lee Marvin at Jack's at the beach in Santa Monica. Well that's not not entirely true. It had started as dinner but the Arrow is now two. AM in Marvin was ripped on Martinis. They'd all arrive together in Marvin's car which he now insisted insisted on driving. Even though Bormann was trying to take away his keys. Fuck you Marvin head said rearing back gesturing with an Imaginary Samurai Sword. This this was a man who had made. twenty-one beach landings in the South Pacific during World War Two still. The Imaginary Sword didn't prevent anyone from getting into the car in so Marvin persisted. Did he felt he was completely capable of driving into demonstrate this. He climbed up onto the top of the vehicle like an orangutan in crouched on the luggage rack. Pity Poor John. Boreman the British filmmaker who is directing his first American feature point blank with Marvin is the lead forman was as yet untested. He was also rewriting. The script on the fly since Marvin had thrown the original shooting draft out the window locations were being scouted sets were being designed instill. No one knew exactly what they were. Filming form would regularly meet with. Marvin is Malibu. Beach House to apprise him of his progress. The meetings typically when well in less Marvin had too much to drink beyond a certain level of vodka forman would right. He sailed out on his own into deeper waters. Where no mortal could follow indeed need when drunk? Marvin left behind often even himself one morning he arrived home from an all nighter without his house. Keys after ringing the bell he was greeted at the door were by an unfamiliar woman when he asked what she was doing in his house. She replied you sold it to me. Three months ago. He had to buy a star map to figure out where he currently lives. Prior to pointblank. Marvin had been in Vegas for production of the professionals one night returning to his hotel. After a long day shooting death valley he'd put quarter order after quarter into a slot machine he couldn't get to work not realizing it was actually a parking meter anyway. The luggage rack. Marvin's car was parked at at the end of the Santa Monica pier jutting into the ocean foreman figure if he drove the length of appear he could demonstrate he was serious about this in. Marvin would relent so he he gave a shot to no avail before reaching the actual road form and got out and ask Marvin if he was ready to come down. Marvin snarled Borman got back behind behind the wheel. It was late. The Pacific Coast highway was practically deserted in Marvin had left them no choice form and turned onto the highway in slowly headed toward Marvins beach chows. It wasn't long before rolling appeared in the rear view mirror. The police form in pulled over and officer approached the car assessing the scene. Finally he looked Berman and asked his first question. Do you know you have Lee Marvin on your roof. I mean I'm sure he was a nice guy parties. Hi this is Kristen Jennifer win last night we were just talking about. The holidays are over. And we're a little bit but we'll put them but you know you know what I think we can keep the holidays going. How by buying gifts for ourselves? Lincoln Reserve Dot Com and use the code podcast. VIP Get fifteen percent off everything in the store. So it's like vice is still giving US Christmas presents. That's amazing podcast. VIP Vice Reserve Dot Com fifteen percent off everything. What are waiting for well? Let's go. Let's go I'm going. You talk about how things things like the emergence of sound changed. How Hollywood party for one thing? The emergence of sounded. Because you couldn't go out all night and get hammered and wake up after having had a pack and a half of cigarettes with your voice rough and scratchy and feel like you could get away with your scenes for the day in the silent era. You could do that but your voice was more your instrument with talkies so in some ways that settle things some of that probably also has to do with the Industry Street taking off in the media around you and you know in those early days it really was more the wild west and you could fly under the radar bit more. Maybe one of the things that is interesting is the studio system and the thirties and forties fifties had like their own team to handle stars who they knew were likely to fly off the derails at a given moment and so they had relationships with the chief of police and they had relationships with the editors at the newspapers they had relationships with the bars owners bartenders surrounding the studio and they would get calls so that they could sort of swoop in and grab you know Clark Gable from a car wreck before the newsmen got thera before it hit the papers so that idea of having your own celebrity handlers wrangler is an interesting yeah but even in the early days of the talkies. They're still build legendary stories legendary parties. This goes back to like two little the bank hat and those guys. Yeah there's some I mean bankhead in in some ways and cheese a good example of somebody who is kind of famous for being too Lula bankhead. She described herself. I always likes us. Pure is driven slush. Talk about her party's because those were uh-huh.

"Was named Mrs Gwendolyn home and insiders Wync some believe at what the production had become. Certainly Houston seems self-aware. In an interview years later he would say it was a bit of a travesty. We were making fun of ourselves. Some critics would see. The picture is one of the first examples examples of camp arguing that Houston Bogart were hell bent on parodying. The Newark classics the Maltese Falcon Key. Largo like that. These were classics. What's that they themselves had crafted? But that didn't mean that the mayhem wasn't real both Houston and Capote tell a story about bogert arm-wrestling all comers in the lobby of the Hotel Hotel Palumbo. He even challenged Little Kaposi wavering. Five dollars astonishingly capote up to fifty dollars and then actually beat bogart rather effortlessly fleet. Pushing his arm flat. Everyone was wide. I'd I'd like to see you do that. Just one more time. Bogart said double or nothing but again capote pushed his arm down then then once more bogart losing a total of one hundred and fifty dollars not having it pogue are started to wrestle around with the writer whom Houston now considered a little bulldog of a man and in here again capote somehow managed to trip bogart flipping the hardboiled screen legend onto his ass and in the process hurting bogart's elbow so badly that they had to stop production for three days. Houston we have a problem to borrow a phrase from the production cinematographer Oswald Morris. In Fact Morris himself tells another story of being accent fetch. Houston early one morning only to get a strong whiff of smoke as he approached Houston's room it seemed the bottom half of the bedroom door from the doorknob to the floor was red hot hash. The door was cracked. Open enough for Morris to slip inside where he found. The director crashed out on the bed. Empty Bottles of Jack Daniels. A couple of Sudi ash trays trays and script pages littering the floor. Apparently an electric room heater had been pushed too close to the door and was about to set the room ablaze. Morris reached out and took Houston Shoulder. John it's Ozzy a muffled houses. Boy John Your bedroom doors alight silence then again John Your bedroom doors alight and then only Oh oh how I love. The smell of burning wood has houston rolled over and went back to sleep but in the end the film was finished. Nobody had died. BOGART would go on to the CAINE mutiny in Houston would spend another thirty years. Directing films. beat the devil however would be both a commercial and a critical flop but then over time that two would change and it is now considered something of a cult classic as for those lines of Bogart's the ones to later be dubbed.

"Welcome to Hollywood unscripted. I'm your host. Got To Lalla the Malibu Film Society. It's our New Year's Eve episode and for that we have a very special special guest. He's produced and written more than a dozen feature length documentaries which have collectively won one primetime emmy and been nominated for four others plus one academy award. He's he's also written three books. One of which seems like the ideal selection to talk about on New Year's eve of all the GIN joints stumbling through Hollywood history. Mark Bailey. Welcome welcome to Hollywood unscripted. Thank Scott thanks for having me. Let's talk about the book. What inspired you to write of all the GIN joints? This is sort of a follow up to an initial book. DOC which was a book about hard-drinking writers and that I did as I did this with my partner at Hemingway who's an illustrator and the name is not a coincidence. He is the youngest grandson of Ernest. He is I think that the first idea for the book came from him and was born out of that sort of family circumstance. He had this idea about his grandfather end. Father and writing about well known highly regarded hard-drinking writers that was called Hemingway in Bailey's bartending guide to great American writers. It was a great book to to work on. It had a lot of cocktail recipes and they were sort of from the classic era and these writers were Eugene. O'Neill and William Faulkner Scott Fitzgerald and the stories were wild in cast back to a different era where there was a different social norm Anna Different Code of behaviour and we tend to look back and think that the pass was somehow more innocent or pure but it was really anything but that in so then that book came out and did pretty well and we were looking to follow up with another book walk in. We thought well you know how about Hollywood and it happened that after we sold that book I moved out here and wrote the book out here and he illustrated at back in New York uh-huh and we sort of worked together across the country so that was how the book came to be and it follows the same format. I mean. It's a delightful mix of these incredible stories and cocktail recipes recipes. The first book was a little bit more of a bartending guide. In this the subtitle is stumbling through Hollywood history and I like to think of it as sort of social film film history through the bottom of a whiskey glass. That's great description. It really seems like that of the writing is tremendous I absolutely love your storytelling. Oh thank you. We'll come back to the questions in a minute but one of the stories with us. Sure I think that I'll kick it off with a story about Humphrey bogart since it's the Humphrey Bogart line. That is the title title of the Book of all the GIN joints and the way. The book is designed and built around anecdotes. Rabat different stars so this is about. I'm free Bogart in. It always leads off with a quote. The bogart guard quote is the whole world is about three drinks behind me. The other bogart quote that I really like and it was a bit of a toss up. We're BOGART's last words. which were supposedly? I should never never have switched from Scotch to Martinis so if you're thinking of doing that this new years. I don't know bogart would argue. Otherwise so here's a story about Humphrey Bogart. It wasn't a joke but it damn well should have been certainly began like one so Humphrey bogart walks into to a bar with two stuffed. Panda Bogart was by then in September. Nineteen forty nine the biggest movie star in the world and he was out in New York with an old drinking buddy named L. Semen they'd been carousing since early. The two of them in bogies wife Lauren. Bacall but she'd gone back to the hotel hours ago. After Mrs Bogart left the men found themselves themselves in need of a standard that might scare off would be home records and drunk. Somehow it emerged that a nearby delicatessen sold a historically random nonfood item as delicatessens have a way of doing stuffed pandas. Not just any stuffed pandas. Mind you each of these weighed in at more than twenty pounds in set you back twenty five bucks a pop perfect bogart. Semen bought a couple of pandas and hopped a cab to Morocco. Were they requested a table for four two seats for them to for their there date seated in that was supposed to be the end of it. Getting seated with two panda's unfortunately for Bogart the real end would take four days to arrive in. It wouldn't be over for drinks with his friends. It'd be in court. Here's the thing. Bogert was a gregarious man with a keen sense of humor but he was only comfortable among friends and his social circle. Go with tight knit. The rat pack later so closely associated with Frank Sinatra was in fact bogart's creation with Bogart at the center. The mission of the group Bogart said Ed was quote. The relief of boredom in the perpetuation of independent bacall was a member of course so Sinatra. Judy Garland Spencer Tracy talent. Alan pagent Irving Lazar. There were all part of the original RATPAC. You might see them out at Romanoff's or on rare occasions in Las Vegas drinking and carrying on but if you weren't part of the pack you're an outsider and you weren't welcome which brings us back to the Pandit if you were to spy Bogart at a nightclub. In the wee hours of the morning propping up an oversized stuffed animal. You might think that it was a not so subtle message about the company he preferred to keep in. If you knew anything about bogert which you might since he was more or less the biggest star in the world. You wouldn't consider yourself in on the joke. But a young model name Robin Roberts thought she was special as young models often do she approached Bogart's table on our way out out laughed and picked up one of the panels in Bogart. Given the number of drinks he had put away by. This point happened to be feeling very protective of this panda. So he naturally pulled the panda close to him and told me his Roberts to leave him alone for he was a married man and then the woman fell over. She said he shoved her. He said she lost her balance. Four days later he was is in a Manhattan courtroom facing legal action. The panda fiasco immediately hit the tabloids with Bogart protesting his innocence. Every step of the way one reporter asked OPTIMA feet struck Ms Roberts. He said he would never hit a woman there too. Dangerous another reporter asked if he was drunk at the time of the incident he replied. Isn't everyone at four. AM fortunately for Bogart. Judge presiding over the case founded as ridiculous as heated. Throwing it out after the first hearing it turns out being left alone. And when you're the biggest star in the world requires a lot of people that's great. I remember doing research on Humphrey Bogart when we were celebrating the seventy fifth anniversary of Casablanca which is a remarkable film in so far as almost none of the people who made it originally scheduled to make it and they were all brought in after changes and they started shooting before the end of the movie had been written right? Do you know who Humphrey Bogart was in real alive. And what his background was he was a preppie or prep school kid. His Dad was the most prominent obstetrician gynecologist in New New York. His mother illustrated children's books and had studied under Whistler. It is interesting that in a certain way not surprising. Because Bogart is I understand. At least the studios were looking for his persona for a while before he became the Bogart that we know of Casablanca. The Maltese Falcon or The hardboiled oiled bogart. He laid villains. He played sort of altogether different types and then he kind of got traction with the hard edge right but that didn't necessarily surly speak to who he was. And this is one of the things I think in this book and when you look earlier actors like John Gilbert in later actors maybe like Dennis Hopper. Let's let's hair. You know where the roles or the persona bleeds into real life. The presumption offscreen is that you're much like the type that you play on screen and he began to live at a bit more Brian. So if you're wild and out there and Edgy onscreen you take that into your personal life and you kind of see that happening a lot with different actors. The other part is there are guys. He's like Lee. Marvin who's a big world war two hero and you know stormed over twenty beachheads. Seems like he genuinely was a stone. Cold Bad ASS US in. That is who he played right. Mitchum was a kid in the depression riding the rails at age fourteen on his own ruin. Mitchum was a hard tough guy. Hi that is who he played. You know it's remarkable to me that the onscreen Bogart was a hundred eighty degrees from who he started out as offscreen. I have a funny when I could read. Yeah I mean just since you're talking about Casablanca Casablanca. It seems crazy that you say that particularly that they were in production before the script was done because it seems like such a tight film and when you wonder how these giant hugely finance movies go pear-shaped and who let at that happen. I often think it's sort of as the rush into production and you're trying to accommodate actors schedules and you have them in. You have to go in. The script is and ready and then it comes atom model. But let me read you one. This is beat the devil which is a nineteen fifty three John Huston film than he did with Bogart. One of the things that the book has is we also talk about a number of different film sets that were particularly wild or dysfunctional. And this one taps into some of that and has some fun folks John. Houston's beat the devil with a total disaster almost from the start maybe a total disaster is a little strong since by some miracle. Nobody actually ended up dead the film directed by Houston Featuring Humphrey Bogart Jennifer Jones. Peter Lorre in Gina. Lollobrigida was to be shot largely on location and in a little town called Ravelo in Italy a picturesque mountain village. That's high up on the Amalfi coast. There were some early warning signs. I The sexy Italian. An actress Lollobrigida had never been in an English speaking film before this most likely was because she could barely speak English like not almost second traveling traveling Inter Avello the Italian chauffeur driving Houston and Bogart got into a car accident. John Huston was fine but bogert was pitched forward cracking some teeth in badly gouging his tongue so even before shooting commenced the female lead couldn't speak English in the male lead. Couldn't speak at all in third to complicate things even further further. Neither Lollobrigida nor bogart nor the rest of the cast had yet to see any of their lines. The reason being that Houston had thrown a party the weekend before for the start of principal photography during which he tore up the entire script. It was tearing up the script party. Apparently the original draft had run into trouble with the the motion picture production code and nobody liked it very much anyways Houston decided to fly novelist Truman capote over to Italy to write the new script on a day-to-day basis as they shot capote would work through the night in pages would be handed out to the cast in the morning. lollobrigida would learn her lines. Phonetically bogart art until his mouth. Healed would mime his lines. which would later be dubbed conceivably could've worked had only the cast and crew not decided to embark on a bender of legendary very proportions capote cozy as Bogart had begun to finally call him soon began to feel that bogert in Houston? We're trying to kill him with their dissipation. He described everyone is half drunk all day. Dead drunk all night noting that once believe it or not. I came around at six in the morning to find king for Ruch doing the Hula Hula. In the middle of BOGART's bedroom it seemed Houston had not created a very productive work environment in Yiddish folktales. The Russian city of how is depicted as a city of Fools Fools Jennifer Jones character and beat the devil.

"This is such a fantastic story, and I don't even there can't be two sides to this, right. I don't know. I need to go back and check the message that I got this morning. It seems like there could be some inside reporting that I'm getting okay because we don't want to disparage anybody's good name. So I'm probably going to leave the name of the passengers off of it for now because John's received some insider information that may be this story didn't quite go down the way they're saying it went down. Is that is that a safe implication? I don't even know if details within that. It's just that the p the people that were involved, these so-called victims in this story are not necessarily. We can't victim. We can't say that they didn't have anything to do with their past tells us that maybe there's more to the story, the past is an indicator of who we are. It doesn't define who we are. But you can tell by the, the path that we traveled kind of what we look like that makes sense. So the story reads on W P passenger say their charter boat. Captain, went on a drunken drug. Infused tirade and threatened to shoot everyone on his boat during a nightmare fishing trip already. You got way more than you bargained for. I thought charter captains I thought they're wild men to begin with. That's why you go out there because they're going to show you a hell of a time. Right. You, you charter them because they know where to catch the fish and, you know, they're probably all little bit. Like, you know, when you when you make your living on the sea, the sea does things to you, you know, we got a lot of water in our body, and probably that marriage of seawater, and the watering, your body. You know, there's probably some weird things that go, especially when the moon is involved. So they're a little bit. Know little bit pirates see captains. But I mean this, this guy seems like he was really a little bit loose. This to say the least Sarasota police say passengers aboard the boat told them captain. Mark Bailey thirty-six drank rum from the bottle. Okay. I no problem there. Right. What kind of see captain, is it? That's why they call it captain Morgan. Yeah. If I'm a if I'm just a passenger, I'm not going to be okay with that. You wouldn't be okay with the sea captain drinking by if I paid for an experience or a charter boat. I would expect just not to drink right out of the bottle. What I got myself a snifter Myers. I mean if he's got you know, his yet. Great. Can I just could have chosen but cardiac could have chosen captain Morgan chose Myers, dark rides grows? That's awesome. I mean. Yeah. You're right. No, it's gross. But I did it was okay. Okay, so continue. I'm just saying make it in your Cup. Keep it do what you do. If you feel you need to have a drink. But it says something about a man who's willing to just drink rum. From the bottle is, he's captaining your ship. I don't think it says a damn word if I'm taking you out where the fish are in order to get there. I gotta take a swig or a slug of my Don q right out the bottle, I thought there's no rules when you're on the open water three miles out. There is no doubt national waters, you can bang four your old. That's. I mean if you wanted to you shouldn't want to right. But I mean I'm just saying national waters, it's international waters. Whatever you do. Yeah. Yeah. Once you get out that, far, what they say. Four miles out, you don't have to pull out. I haven't heard them say that never never heard them say circles, we run.

Just basically your Santander and just start getting back in control of that discretionary spend each month. And as you start saving, we think that will allow you then to sort of have more ambition, and then move onto some other areas that will radio allow you to take back financial control.

Well, it's a communist made quite often and undoubtedly the new banks have created some quite interesting cultures. And they've definitely delivered quickly. And we've unapologetically copied a lot of the good things that happened so running the business entirely separate from the core on a separate technology stack with the Decatur people.

We're gonna solve has worked and his created this huge amount of pace and a huge amount of desire within the business to solve that problem.

But they'll never be able to copy it in any time, and it's taken as about two year to build a working Bank. So I think that some evidence that we can copy the culture. The other thing I'd say is to coach within banks isn't all bad so risk coach masters and understanding to you dealing with the precious assets. If somebody else, and you've got to be able to monitor the fraud you've got to be able to do sanction screening you've got to be able to run a Bank properly. I think there's a slight offset.

"Solvable. But she left he thinks someone is just a total asshole. How should you deal with them? The dilemma is that the worst thing you can do in many ways is to do nothing over time. But the second worst thing that you can do is to fight back in the moment. They've been playing that game. If there are certified asshole for a very long time. And so you are agreeing to basically play the game on their turf. But as soon as you are able whether that's an hour later or the next morning that you come back to them to have a conversation. She lives second tip for talking to office assholes is to make sure you don't put them on the defensive what you're going to want to say to them is something like, I don't know why you feel the need to undermine me or demean me. I don't know why you feel the need to humiliate everybody in control everything. That's what you want to save time. But but that was to say that you could say it in your head. And you can say it in front of the mirror if it'll make you feel better. But. What you're doing is. You're telling them something about their intentions and their character. And you can bet that they're going to argue with you about that what they can't argue with is about the impact that it's had on you. So the most important thing is to separate intentions and impact sometimes assholes earn aware of the impact of their own behavior. We know what we're trying to do to get our point across what we don't see and people sometimes don't share with us is just how upsetting demeaning unprofessional. It was and the ripple effect that it had throughout the team in the organization. She lives. Third suggestion is to help them. Find a less demeaning way to accomplish their goals. I once worked with a colleague who's known to yell at people occasionally in meetings. The first time I saw it happened. I called afterwards to explain that. I found it disrespectful and unprofessional. My colleague said, well, it was necessary to get my point across. And I realized this was someone who had rationalized aggression and wasn't sure what to do at that point. So I asked you how we should think about responding in a situation like that. If you want use a little bit of humor in that moment, if you can think of it when he says. Yeah. People feel that way. But there's really the only way for me to get my point across you can say really, it was my impression that you were smarter than that and more creative than that. So I bet you could come up with some other ways to be just as clear without having to actually rip somebody else apart. But maybe maybe I'm overestimating you, maybe, you know, maybe that's not true. Oh, I love that. So I could actually gently give them a better way to accomplish their goals. Yeah. It's a little. I mean, they're the story in their head is the ends justify the means. Right. It was important for me to get my point across and if some people's feelings were hurt boohoo that's not as important. Okay. I actually am going to challenge. Whether that's true. Sometimes you can use humor to challenge it without even saying a word back in the nineteen nineties the CEO of a tech company. Gordon Eubanks was known for an unusual brand of insult Gordon was working to gross two Mantech into a fortune five hundred company, and for some reason he had a habit of comparing people unfavourably to vegetables that guy's dumber than a head of lettuce. Mark Bailey was working for Gordon at the time. Did he have other other vegetable phrases, he referred Firdaus Aquinas when the headline a stock that was the one that I remembered him using pretty regularly knew exactly what he meant what he said. He did not think highly of the person when he said that obviously was it was it always about a person sometimes about an idea. It was it was usually better person after everyone Gordon's team had been compared to a farmer's markets worth of produce. They finally decided to do something about their bosses behavior. So market is colleagues went grocery shopping before their next staff meeting, we arranged it. So that we were all kind of gathering outside the conference room, and then Gordon shows up for the staff meeting kind of grouse, you know, remember, it's not at room reedit, or, you know, are we going to get started. We all nod, and then we let him walk into the room. I good and stepped inside. And saw that every seat at the conference table was occupied by a head of lettuce. Some of the lettuce heads had mustaches somewhere wearing sunglasses. Would you do if you were Gordon when people get called out on bad behavior? There's a real risk that they'll get defensive and start calling people names worse than vegetables. And when he comes in and sees all the heads of lettuce on the faithfully just starts laugh out loud. And we all got a big laugh out of what was so clever about the heads of lettuce prank. Is that it was non-threatening? And Gordon realized that Mark wasn't just playing a prank. He was also making a point. He thought it was funny, and probably would be helpful it would unite a group of people. Right. And maybe most importantly, Gordon, ended up reflecting on his behavior. Well, I'm sure people would think yes, I was probably really an asshole in if you mean is someone can be very difficult and on necessarily abrasive. I'm sure there were times when that happened. I've mellowed, of course, over the years, if someone steals your parking place, that's a different kind of an asshole than someone that's trying to achieve something with a group of people but demeaning, though is wrong. And I'm sure there are times I was demeaning, and that's a problem in an or. Organization. Yep.

And some of you guys have called in. Regarding the whole vaccine debate and. If you don't listen to us live, you could definitely leave your comments on the voice lines. So let's go to that right now. One eight seven seven dollars and seventy oh C D A L. Here's the thing. Everybody else is a thanksgiving added. Does it matter? I am not. Because obviously, I'm the only one is going to catch it if everybody else. Your argument is of mute. I'm not going to give my kids because here's the thing. Dr. Enemies. Putting in there? Military. We were given stuff. For government is doing it too. To the people. Yeah. You can keep your vaccines. Turn them sideways. Where the sun don't. Intaking vaccines, and neither are my kids. This is dawn to star. And let me ask you this. From. Again, teas from some of these vaccines. Thank you. First of all first of all thank you for your call. I wish I could talk to you live and thank you for the service. God bless you, man. God bless you for being in the army and military. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you before we begin. Because there's a few things I do have to kind of. I have to disagree with because I am pro vaccine, but I do have to just put it out there. Anybody in the military who has any apprehension about vaccines? They have right. They absolutely have a right. There was a report that the Gulf war syndrome that we couldn't figure out for years that happened to a lot of our military fairly a senior army doctor had provided some evidence that it was possibly from the cocktail of vaccines that the soldiers got before the nineteen Ninety-one war in Iraq. And so Lieutenant Colonel Graham how clinical psychiatry with the pretty sports is health service in Germany made a link between the vaccine and the Ellis's that were associated with Gulf war. It had also been previously reported and again Gulf war syndrome, the illness that many people came back with a whole variety of cluster of symptoms. Nobody could figure out they're starting to be more and more discussion that that might have been from the vaccines that were given to the to the military. And then of course, we know of the dental virus contamination that happened with vaccines in the fifties. And sixties so armee veterans who enlisted in nineteen fifty nine thousand nine hundred sixty one might have got SB forty contaminated adenoviruses, and it had gotten advice some of the cultures. I guess monkey kidney tissue cultures used for the vaccines. And so people in the military, even though they get. Vaccinated. They do do what they're told in the military many of them if they have an issue with vaccines. This is where it stems from. And I will never argue with anybody in the military because they protect us. And you know, as far as I'm concerned, they you know, they can do no wrong. And if they have an issue with vaccines, I get because there's been a lot of discussion of. Debate on what was actually given to our veterans. And then we're being told that many veterans are being denied medical claims and. Compensation for injuries caused by some of the vaccine related injuries. And so apparently, Fox News Boston highlighted these cases of Sean, Kelly and Mark Bailey. These were two marine veterans who developed a chronic crisis, which is kind of inflammation of the lining around the heart and they found for benefits they were denied. And I guess the smallpox vaccine was apparently not a covered vaccine the vaccine that they were given. And so there's a, unfortunately. Unfortunately, there's been now even though smallpox has been Radic aided. And this is why I'm pro vaccine's. The controversy doesn't go away because there were more than two point four million service members who received the smallpox vaccine between the two thousand to two thousand fourteen yet there's been issues for myocarditis, pericarditis and other certain side effects. We don't hear about a lot of the media because what happens to the military kind of stays within the military. But these are things that I had to research that are surfacing. So. You know, our caller definitely has a. Footing, Astana when it comes to, you know, distrust of of vaccines for military members. Now that being said he brought up a point of if everybody else is vaccinated. Then is it he protected? Well, the cats brought up a lot the reason why that doesn't hold a lot of water is because when somebody is vaccinated it doesn't mean there are one hundred percent immune it also doesn't mean they're not carrying the virus. So if I let's say vaccinated against the flu. And I get exposed to the flu I can still carry it. I could still shut it could still contaminate somebody with it. I may not get sick. Because of my immune system. Still give it to somebody. So if you didn't get the vaccine there is supposedly this herd, immunity that you know, we should be should which is what we're trying to shoot for getting getting the population vaccinated because there's some people that can't get vaccinated because of certain immune system issues or allergies to the vaccine. But you're not a hundred percent protected by herd immunity. But a lot of people say, look, I, you know, why is my child who's not vaccinated a threat to your school. If your child was vaccinated will now here's the argument for that the argument for that is well what if your child was vaccinated? But the vaccine did it take. You know, parents do not want to expose their children to infectious disease. Get the vaccine, but vaccines aren't always one hundred percent. And so that's why there's that issue. Now do vaccines cause autism. No, no, no. There's been proof. I have family members. I have extended family where siblings have autism. And they obviously got vaccines at different times of their life. And I asked I asked my family member and said, look, you know, do you think your children got this because of the vaccines, and they're like, no because it's gotta be a gene look at how it's pervasive in the family. So autism is not linked to vaccines. What though people are hearing is an autism like sort of sequentially that very very very very rarely and has not been proved but has been. Has been suggested by parents where their child was speaking normally interacting normally communicated fine. And then all of a sudden, you know. After a certain time period in their infancy stopped doing that. And that's why it was linked to the whole variety. Things were the theory came out that it might be linked to to vaccines. And the reason why I'm spending so much time talking about this. As I pro vaccine, I am I'm with the American board of family medicine physicians. I think vaccines save lives. I am pro vaccines, but as this acts anti vaccine movement grows hearing, people call them crazy is ridiculous. Because that doesn't help the situation if people are anti vaccine we need to find out why. And that's callers mad. I mean, he told me to take a vaccine and shove it up my. But but he has every right to be mad because he's part of the military and the military has kind of gotten the shaft when it comes to vaccines. So we need to listen to anti vaccine. Now, we also need to educate and vaccines cause autism. Why we have a rising autism. I don't know. And we need to figure that out. And I think we do need to look at things are kids are exposed to not only vaccines, but cell phones, meditations foods what happens in birth. You know, I think all theories needs to be looked at. But because vaccine save lives because we're a rat any diseases that used to kill our kids. I have to be on the side of scenes are they one hundred percent safe all the time. No, no one's saying that. But it's not an easy subject. People are not going to want anti vaccinated kids.
