A brilliant stuff Really intriguing and i think specifically in the early two thousands. I found it Incredibly stimulating And enjoyed it so much so while.

"Talk stick around. I have more. Here's more sci fi. Talk with tony to lada. You mentioned that. I think critise handled lee tracy's performance really well balancing the uber in erotic heroic aspects. And thank god. We got to see a rom com a little bit with fay wray and lee. You know in some of the scenes. It really showed that she could have done a lot more in king kong than she did so speak to that aspect of it talks about balancing. I think you know you have some really good actors in their lee tracy Invented and i don't think that's too strong. Work invented the created the template of the smart aleck thirties reporter. I mean yeah. He was he was he was. He was the template for that. And i think fe I don't think fe really thought much of this film. She certainly did not like michael. Critise very much at all In critise in many ways was not a loveable. Man he was. He was a task master and he vented pressure and he was under considerable pressure. jack warner was not an artistic man and i think Any assistance that he provided any filmmaker Could be summed up with two words and those are hurry up that that was about it But i think fay is capable of a lot more. Certainly than what she had in these films. And i made she. She made a doctor x mystery of the wax museum. king kong. Most dangerous game made all those horror films and she got away from that. And i think if you go to The mystery of the wax museum. Blu ray or victoria riskin excellent book about her parents Favorite robert riskin. You'll see the fay. Wray was really not only a really good actress but a very admirable person as well. And so so i think you you have you have these type of performances and of course lionel atwill who who watches horror movies or classic movies doesn't appreciate lionel atwill. His character in this is a little more a little more ambiguous lettuce say than some of his other stuff. But you still see the elegant style and so on and so forth and and They got good performances out of the. I think critiques got good performances out of the whole cast and the other thing is i don't think he needed to really coach The actors too much. I mean these people were pros and they. They knew what they were supposed to do. And and of course dr x. Has fair raise for scream onto damning point what i really liked to. Is there the way. He plays a camera there. Several shots were. He gives it deaths where we're essentially the mad scientist is poking around. And you see that famous thing where the two leads and the current goes up and down and he's behind it talk about how. He used a camera really at a time. Where cameras were not that sophisticated like. They aren't day critise and was kind of like a person in perpetual motion so in the days now wherever he made his first film in nineteen twelve and he made his last film in nineteen sixty one. He made It in the days where the camera couldn't move in this was before rotating heads or dali's or any of that he would have the people move in the shot and have the ad the characters move around. He always wanted movement In his cinema but his movement always came with a purpose. It was always to tell part of the story and to reveal something about the plot and so forth. It wasn't just a for lack of a better term. Artsy fartsy it. It it had. It had an objective and There's one scene dr x. Where fay walks into the room and to introduce that..

"Hi this is tony auto and welcome to bite here on the. Sat podcast network and so parenting an apocalypse. It's it's not the same way we would. Do you know how it works. Any views usually two to four minutes long but sometimes they can be a little longer. When you when you live long. All kinds of strange things happen very right in saying that. The greek heroes. Where the original superheroes in part because of the nature of genes but also because of its message of diversity and inclusion. Helen k rudy is the author of michael kirk tease life and film and he talked to me about the fame directors beginnings in har in particular the film dr x. Mr rowdy great to talk to you about this This movie i actually never seen it until you know. It's coming on turner classic movies. And what a little gem of a movie and and really a director. Michael critise. Who in my book i think is overlooked. Plus you for writing a book about him. What stands out to you about this. Well a couple of things. I think the the style of the movie as a melding of the warner brothers house style which is Snappy smart back talk from reporters and cops and clipped off dialogue and so on and so forth in combining that with two strip technicolor warners had a contract with and had to figure out how to fulfill during the depression when musicals took a dive for a period of time And and movies that universal made popular but in nineteen thirty. Two horror was a film business. I mean mgm. Dr jekyll and mr hyde paramount. The island of lost souls and so on and so forth so and and James whale was doing his thing over at universal. So i think this was an attempt with a third of the theaters being closed With with a couple of the major studios going into receivership during their prussian. This was a way to get people into movie theaters. And they were desperate to do that and this was. This was basically xanax inspiration. 'cause he was he was the head of production warner brothers when he was twenty. Five years. old You know. His first his first big movie star was written by jack warner stanford. He always renton was my favorite star because he never asked for a raise nor complained about the food in the commissary so so This was a combined this was an attempt by warner brothers to sell. Tickets fulfilled their contract with technicolor. And and make money and critise at this. Point was as i in my biography of them. This was his general form in period where he was aching a film virtually every three months. He was starting on hill and between nineteen thirty. Two and nineteen thirty three. He made like fourteen movies. I i mean it's just he repeatedly because they needed to get the movies out into the theaters with new. There was a new movie playing like every every week or so. This was part of that. But i think a lot of this though in dr x. They were making stuff up the the the notion of making a film. Even in the pre code era having to do with serial killing cannibalism this horrific makeup that they went to. I guess to max factor and i i think purrs west more i tend to think he designed it but they use the factor resources because at that time the studio The studio makeup departments were not nearly as sophisticated as you would be come and so you know the the whole synthetic flesh thing president foster sitting there watching human heart in an abuser bobbling water. I mean all of this stuff. We look at these things now on a on a home screen and we're kind of like well you know that. That's that's pretty cool. That's pretty scary. But ninety years ago sitting in a darkened auditorium a darkened theater with a bunch of people. I mean this. This scared the shit. People in a lot of ways. And i think in another way xanax wanted the comedic episodes in us to to lieven the terror and goes there was a fine line in one reason. I think jack warner did not like horror films is he didn't want to offend people and more rural areas Unsophisticated audience and so forth. So they had to kind of make it funny where people would be frightened and they giggle a little bit. So i think that that that was kind of the the the melding of of two different styles. The warner brothers house style and and and getting on the horror bandwagon for only a short period. Because jack warner jack warner disliked two things any any movies about alcoholics because he thought alcoholic alcoholism was like a weakness and there was something wrong with you and he didn't like home movies as a as a general rule. Let but Jack warner could squeeze a nickel hard enough for the buffalo to fall over. So you know that was always the priority. I liked that casablanca. The adventures of robin hood even king creole without some of michael kirk films. Get alan kay roadies. Michael curtail life and film and dr rex can be seen on.

"Is in analogy on any level auto parameters treatment of women for example. Isn't something you can accept. Because he was german. No he was hired more as a professional torture as director in several of his films howard hughes literally had an actress who had rejected him who we hired crimminger to break onset there are genuinely unacceptable behaviours from directors off the ford but at the same time i agree with you but we have to juggle a lot of factors here yeah. There are countless different approaches to hubris in the art of filmmaking. There's a lot of it and most of them weren't at the time honest at all. I call this tarantula autour syndrome. I actually came up with a turn for it. Taas there are people who go mad with the power of being in charge. I agree but there are also some who reveal that they probably were always wrong. I mean a decade for casablanca. The reason hollywood have stunt people in unions is because it making twenty seven. Michael critise was directing a film called noah's ark and decided this shot will look better if i don't tell anyone i'm about to flood this building. there were several funerals as a result but he was never charged with a crime busby berkeley. The most famous of hollywood choreographers and directors was so not punished for his actions when he got very drunk and decided to drive. Through a crowd of people the studios in order to rehabilitate his reputation. Created a new oscar category. They invented the dance choreography. Oscar category thirties so that they could raise his pri- profile during the course of his multiple trials but agreed it would look like a fixed if he ever actually won it. So for the four years that oscar category exists busby. Berkeley is nominated every time but doesn't win because only existed so that the studios could salvage an asset. Wow there is an ongoing degree of directors are sometimes monsters and we have to accept that too even though every time we want to make excuses for them and we do over and over again. It's true it's true. But i'm not trying to make excuses for kazan and i just wanna make sure that's clear. I'm just trying to share. Where i think his perspective comes from. Because i'm always interested. In where the historical perspective that creates that mindset would come from and his perspective is important because as equality in arch. There are very few things that you absolutely have to set aside from bad behavior but presence is absolutely one of the iliad is an open and over again had an understanding of society and of human nature in his work. That is frighteningly ahead of its time and you can build a career and be hailed as a genius for doing that a few months. Where you are jerry. Seinfeld is a comedian is someone who is mainly considered brilliant for being able to foresee ins will be like six months ahead. He can see trends and ideas that people are going to have a few months ahead when they do iliad. Kazan could do it. Seventy years ahead of time. That is undescribable and this film is riddled with things that feel like now in a way that had to be utterly baffling and deeply unappealing contemplating nineteen fifty. Yeah so let's talk about those things that he incorporates into this movie that it seemed completely off the wall in one thousand. Nine hundred fifty. Oh yes you start with a very criminal. Sort of prototypical norrish plots. Yes.

"Whole thing And and interesting that the black face in that film and in most nineteen forties films, they always use it as some plot issue. You know why she wearing black face so that Fred astaire won't recognize her. There's always some dumb. Plot justification written into the script what all they really WanNa do 'cause irving. Berlin love, minstrels. He wrote a Lotta miserable songs and they just WANNA do a black face number because audiences loved it as I. Point Out in the in the book there were some sixty feature films and short subjects many of those short subjects made for children by the three stooges and and and you know ten, twenty one and two reeler comedy things like that that used black face it was It was revived in the nineteen forties because it's was said to represent some kind of continuity with a and the stalled for you know white people who grew up with it and remembered it and so everybody did it Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland. John. Wayne. Does black face and a film I mean it's hard to think of a major performer in and out of music who didn't somehow got. Caught up with it in that period, and then when the war is over nine, hundred, forty, six, the third top grossing movie of the year is the Jolson. Story with half of which is in black face and then nineteen, forty, nine, the number one grossing movie in the country is Jolson sings again. So you can see that this country had an attachment to black vase they went way way beyond. What what seems a just an active nostalgia during the war and it was really wasn't until the early fifties and everybody just wait a second. This is appalling. We have to stop this and interestingly the the one. Film that really sort of. Put. A you know full stop to it was things of film directed by Michael critise again with an irving Berlin score called White Christmas which is today crosby's biggest grossing film. It's Christmas staple, but there's a big minstrel Senate the film and it's very Definitely. Done in white face it's it's it's it's. It's very consistent with the minstrel practices jokes out of minstrels. See the dancing everything is very authentically minstrel, but there's no black face and guess what? Obviously you can do this without it doesn't lose anything because they're not made up to look ridiculous. Yeah the whole show Hee Haw in the seventies is essentially recycling menstrual beds and. I didn't realize this until recently learning more about mental see. So the fundamental. Comedy Variety American comedy variety fundamentally comes out eventually. It's it's very difficult to extricate American music from. This tradition that we now find so problematic, but I want to switch to. Another pair of song writers that wrote most of beings material he worked with Irving Berlin three pictures and obviously white Christmas. This incredible mega hit charts literally every year from nineteen, forty, two to nineteen, sixty two. With one exception I mean this is by far. They must successful record of all time. So I want to be sure listeners understand the magnitude of the success of that thing. But most of the time in beings movies, he had his own personal songwriting team of a bark and venues in and they wrote songs for the road pictures and going my way talk about that partnership and how that worked. Well. It really begins with Johnny. Burke who's a very close friend of crosby's in the thirties johnny burke initially came to Crosby with the different partner he was Jimmy Monaco who's Bid Older. Man Who had written songs for Jolson and it didn't quite a number of hits over the years and they wrote things first independent feature which was pennies from heaven. So Johnny Burke and and Monica wrote pennies from heaven itself and is actually a wonderful score. It's a terrific very underrated movie. That's the one Armstrong introduced a skeleton in the closet and and. then he he wanted to work with a younger composer burke somebody is own generation and somebody who thought could move him ahead and he heard about the venues in New York who is basically a song plugger couldn't get arrested and they wrote a couple of songs together to basically show being what they could do and There were a lot of reasons why it was difficult because they were all kinds of contracts and everybody loved Jimmy Monaco, personally including being But when he heard the kind of thing that they were turning out Eventually was very happy to facilitate the change in Berko love to American venues and loved each other and they just had an amazing career for you know, a decade more than a decade and the songs that they wrote swinging on a star moonlight becomes you just you know hit after hit after hit not just for Crosby also Sinatra Sinatra's biggest hits like imagination also and and a Lotta the songs they came they just became standards and Actually I'd say they were probably the leading new songwriting team of a war and of the nineteen forties and then burke had some trouble with pills and alcohol, and he became unreliable and he moved to New York to write for the Broadway stage in venues and continued the partnership this time with Sammy Cahn, and now they became being had pretty much You know stopped his full scale movie career although he still use them a convent, use it but basically, they became Sinatra's song writers interestingly when Bergen van using started to team. Sinatra you know was dying to have them but so not your was you know he was he was Tommy Dorsey singer, he was nobody in terms of power and industry and Crosby was you know paramount pictures I mean it was no. No choice between the two of them. So venues and moved out to California, and for the next two dozen years although he occasionally used a Berlin as we said or Johnny Mercer did one of his films, Hoagy Carmichael but most of them, and certainly all the road pictures were..

"Now, it's time for our buzz from the back lot segments and this week. We've got tension between star and director Errol Flynn was not happy. When Michael critise was assigned to the film as he didn't care for critise dictatorial methods and the two clashed often while filming the charge of the light brigade in nineteen thirty six especially over what he an avid horseman saw as critise indifference to the injuries and deaths of many of the horses used in the film. Also, probably didn't help that Errol Flynn was married to critise his former wife lily Dhamija, James Cagney was the studio's original choice for Robin Hood. However when Cagney walked off set the film's producer Hal Wallis made the decision to cast aero Flynn instead against the studios wishes. It was also Wallace's decision to keep made Marian. When the original script writer wanted to dump her character from the script together. Wallace felt Marian was an indispensable fixture of robinhood advice. After the, sir. Joseph oak called the gallows oak in the film where Robin Hood forms his outlaw band was supposedly the largest living oak tree in the world. At the time of filming in nineteen thirty seven the rock that aero Flint stands on in front of the tree is a prop. And the oak was felled by lightning in nineteen seventy nine and only then was it discovered that it was actually two oak. Trees estimated to be one hundred twenty five years old that had fused together over time. And while we're talking about plant life, although shot in California, indigenous English plants were added, and the grass was painted to give a greener more English look to the background while filming Robin hoods escape from the castle. Basil Rathbone was knocked down and trampled by extras causing a spear wound in his right foot that required eight stitches to close out the stunt players. Also were heavy padding underneath steel breastplate over. Laid with some balsa wood to absorb the impact of the arrows. Also Ouch sword. Master Fred Cavins who staged the duals, and captain blood and nineteen thirty five was assigned to make the fight scenes, exciting Cavins believe that dual should be magnified and exaggerated for effect. His approach was to create a routine that was choreographed like a dance with counts and phrases, basil Rathbone was already impressive fencer. So aero Flint trained with Cavins though. Many sources say Flint was less than dedicated to the task and relied more on his innate athletic ability in this area. Liberties were also taken with history, although broad swords that would have been typical for the area were used, but designed as lighter and more manageable replicas the fight scenes Inc. Fencing techniques that would not have actually been developed until decades later when the adventures of Robin Hood was screened for preview audiences the preview audiences reaction was so positive that. The film was released without any alterations to the plot whatsoever. And the film was also so successful that a sequel was commissioned. However, the US government wanted to restrict the amount of money invested in filmmaking at that point in anticipation of joining World War Two. So it was delayed by nineteen Forty-five. When the war was over the project was scrapped because Livia Havilland and Claude rains or no longer employed. At Warner Brothers Howard hill who is listed in the credits. As captain of the archers also played Elwin, the Welshman in the archery contest hill, actually made the shot where we see one arrow split another. And he did all the shots which required hitting human targets. He also worked closely with the sound department to produce the distinctive arrow sounds by using specially made EROs I mentioned in our feature presentation that beautiful cinematography using three strip technicolor while the production used all eleven of the technicolor cameras in existence in nineteen. Thirty eight and they all had to be returned to technicolor at the end of each day's filming. Lastly at the time of release Robin Hood was the most expensive film ever made by Warner Brothers. Jack, Warner approved the initial budget of one point six million, though, the budgets swelled to over two million. Luckily, the film ended up being a tremendous success and the highest grossing Warner Brothers film that year..

"Establish the narrative world and the characters motivations needless to say, given the reliance Hollywood placed on the. Montage sequence in the many decades since these early editing. Techniques had timeless power as I mentioned earlier. William keely was hired as the original director for the film, and it wasn't until eight weeks in the keely was removed in favor of Michael critise. The studio felt key lease direction was too light hearted and felt the action sequences needed to be bolstered to provide more tension and excitement critise specifically reshot sequences using more camera movement in conjunction with physical movement of the actors, not least of which is the final fight scene in the castle the moment where critise choreographs Errol Flynn and basil Rathbone to move offscreen only to be replaced by their fighting shadows. On the wall is a deft piece of filmmaking that book ends layered Meson Sen. with dynamic editing. Critise not only doubles the sense of movement by utilizing physical movement camera work to the fullest. He then further enhances the dynamism with very.

"Nd editing scheme working in conjunction with the musical score Errol Flynn's engaging athletic performance is only enhanced by the beautifully choreographed tightly edited action sequences that punctuate the film to better understand why the adventures of Robin Hood is still so enjoyable today. We need to look more closely at elements of the film's temporal design as well as the conventions classic Hollywood cinema that guide it towards the beginning of the film. The sequence of the Norman feast in Nottingham castle establishes, many of the editing conventions used throughout the film. This sequence can be broken into two distinct parts, I the beginning of the feast and the entrance of Robin Hood and second Robin hoods escape from the castle. In the first part the scene opens with establishing shots that lay out the spatial. Dimensions of the great hall the ensuing dialogue between prince John and other members of the court guides. The. Leisurely tempo of the shots. It's a prime example of classical Hollywood editing at play, for instance, the cuts from prince John to the sheriff of Nottingham are based on graphical matches with both figures framed in medium close ups additionally, shot reverse shots, and I line matching established coherent spatial relations between the characters after robinhood enters the castle we continue to get graphic, and I line matches as well as shot reverse shot sequences between the main characters the cuts between shots are motivated by the principal characters acting and reacting to each other. And throughout the first part of the sequence the length of the shots is rhythmically steady. It allows the audience to get to know the characters and to take in the lush production design. However the pace the sequence changes as we approach Robin hoods daring escape from the castle. Too quick I line matches begin to increase the tension in the sequence we. See that Robin Hood is aware that the castle doors are being barred for the more. We get a cut away shot of the soldiers preparing to move in on Robin after Dicken one of the prince's soldiers. Throws a spear at Robin, the editing of the scene changes drastically. I the sound of the spear hitting Robbins chair coincides with the beginning of non diabetic music that is music that can only be heard by the audience drought. The escape sequence the uptempo music helps guide the excel A-Rated pace of the editing. Second the length of the shots varies greatly. We get much shorter shots of actions such as sir guy throwing candlestick or of the various sword fights and the relation between shots is based on movement action and vigil matches.
