"Real bad senior year almost didn't graduate Bing? Again, man, Ryerson, I dated your sister Mary pad a couple times till you told me not to anymore. Well, Ned Ryerson. Bang. Bing. So did you turn pro with that belly button thing Ned? Or no, Phil? I sell insurance. What a shock. Do you have life insurance? Because if you do, you could always use a little more. Am I right or am I right or am I right? Ned, I would love to stand here and talk with you. But I'm not going to. Hey, that's all right. I'll walk with you. Isn't that fun? Isn't that funny? Isn't that good? That's Steven Toby lossy, who is Ned in Groundhog Day, along with Rick Miller's who will talk to them both now. I want to start with you, Steven, just because we just heard your voice there Do you have as much fun listening back to that as we do? Oh, it's one of those things that brings you back with every sense of your body. It was so cold when we shot that. It was freezing and it was first up in the morning. It was 6 30 in the morning when we started shooting that. And I was terrified. So when I hear those dulcet tones of me screaming across the road out there, it all comes back to me in that morning at Woodstock. Well, when you saw that script, did you see all the opportunity there that you were able to take advantage of? I mean, if that just looked like just that passage alone, did you think this is why I'm an actor? I'm going to sew, no? Well, you never know. When you're working on a movie, you never know if it's going to be good or bad, even when you're shooting it in groundhog was certainly one of those. Because as it turned out, when we were shooting that Harold Raymond did not know what the day of the movie would be because it's Groundhog Day it has to be repeated, which means meteorologically it has to be the same day and we were shooting outside of Chicago in the winter. And so you know, you got everything. And we had snow, we had sleep, we had hail, we had gloom, we had sun. And so Harold Ramis took Bill and I and said, you don't have a schedule anymore. Whenever the weather changes, we'll come back and shoot this scene in every weather condition. And so I remember Bill and I were running and I think it was the chaos of it all living through it. It was chaos, but kind of guerrilla theater sometimes could turn out to be the best. And for Groundhog Day, it really turned out as good as it possibly could be. No kidding. But are you also saying then that you shot that scene, for instance, in different weather conditions so that there would be a would not be a continuity problem? Absolutely. And so at the end and not only that in the script, if you recall, there are several meetings of Bill on the street and they kind of get shorter and shorter, a little different that first thing is the longest. But there's one where Bill just runs through with me chasing it. So we had about 5 of those scenes in the script and we shot each one of those in different weather conditions at the end Harold Ramis had the choice and he said, I want the gloomy day to be the day when Ned and Bill me Phil Connors meet and then at the end of the movie when snow starts to fall as to when time starts again. So it was crazy. But you never knew it was going to turn out to be that good. And it did turn out to be just a wonderful movie. You were in over 200 movies and TV shows and are still working all of the time. I was looking at your IMDb, do I correctly see thelma Louise basic in street memento adaptation, all of those you've appeared in all of those films, right? Well, I was in all those films, but like an adaptation, they cut me out. They cut me out completely. Now, you know, again, you don't know was it me or was it the fact that they didn't have permits to shoot where we were shooting and a police helicopter was hovering overhead the entire time? And so the sound was completely, but I did get to meet Meryl Streep and she had to shoot me in the back of the head and there's no better way than having them giving them a gun with blanks in it and trusting them to not shoot you in the back of the head. It's a trust exercise. But you say that in light of what's happened of late now, I wonder looking back at your career, none of us ever thought about the safety of guns on movie sets. And when I did, I shot in South Carolina and studios there on the very set where Brandon Lee was just killed. And he was killed by, as I recall, a blank, you know, a blank is not something that's harmless. It fires too and

You know a question that would let you spill the beans. Because i know the beans of which you're referring while waiting for your question. Here's the thing this. I find this really fun now. Part talking about the story of pagan whistle right. And and i find it fun because we can learn all kinds of things as we discuss it. I also find it fun because you're an old friend of mine and we have the basis for a ton of different kinds of conversations. Plus you produce the podcast. But what if you were an expert on pagan whistle. What if after each week on this podcast and expert on the subject came in who unlike you didn't have to go to. The wikipedia page like all our listeners can but or to the bathroom every thirty minutes somebody within functional prostate and a brain large enough to contain a lot of new information about the subject that i wrote about this conversation With an expert in that world i think would be interesting and i think it would be more interesting if it were on camera and i think it would be doubly interesting if the conversation. I just described with the expert that is currently not on hand. Were to follow a reenactment of the story. I just told you fly. In other words in other words i walk onstage and sit down not unlike the late great spalding gray and i tell you the story you just heard the biggest name in town and as i tell you that story.

"You drive angry and they drive off a cliff. I was reading recently. That during the filming. And i'm assuming it's during that scene he got bit Two or three times by the groundhog. Your your that at all. And and i'm assuming it's during the scene where he's got. He's driving in the truck with the groundhog. Because there's no other part of the movie where he's that close to the groundhog to where he can get bit but yeah apparently he got it was. They were so concerned about the bites that he ended up getting rabies shots. Yeah i just kinda learned at the other day. This past groundhog day has almost every year. I try to watch groundhog day on groundhog day. Cheesy as hell right. But i do it and i had it on. Vhs up until this last groundhog day because vhs took a dive enhance was on. Its last leg. And i almost couldn't get it out of the vcr 'cause like the tape. The vcr was like eating the tape out of the reels or whatever. I'm sure you experience that probably a long time ago. 'cause i'm probably the last person on the planet that's still has a vcr. I don't have any lack. But i did. I do remember exactly. You're talking about because of my favorite movies died. That was you see exactly but but anyway. Yeah so i was. I was looking up some things about the film. Some interesting facts and that was one of the lump tournament. what else was something else. That was interesting. But i think the ned ryerson scenes are some of my favorites because we all have that person we went to high school with or whatever and we tried to avoid them and pub blake if we see them like shit like. I don't wanna see this guy because he's doing. no. I want you to buy this. And i'm doing this now. You should totally by my thing or you know whatever whatever it is and so the whole ned. Ryerson thing is great. I think one of my favorite facts about the movie too is that they were doing the math. Like how long who's in the loop for no they. They don't really have like a definitive. But it's anywhere between ten and thirty years. He was going through the loop seriously. Yeah wow that's crazy. I don't remember who wrote the screenplay for that. And i'm sure it's probably based on a book like everything else is i do know that it's Wow now i'm going to forget his name a director's name. I'm forgetting his name all going to have to look that up. Now 'cause herald ramos there. We go Herald ramos was the hill. Raymond yeah it was herald ramos right. You're is. I'm mixing up my movies and i guess i was gonna say yeah and i guess says he actually wrote it with someone else so which. I guess isn't surprising but i don't know i i just have a soft spot for that movie. I think i mean. That's my favorite bill. Murray movie and i think it's one of his best known as a very very good bill. Murray movie i don't know is it my favorite. That's a good question to. I'll a big fan of the steve zizou life. I have never seen life aquatic. Very different bill murray role but very good bill murray role a lot of his movies around that time like lost in translation. And all that they were those. Were very different. In my opinion there are kind of weird. you know. it's still funny in a way because like he's not he's not like slapsticky he's like sarcastic funding throughout the entire movie is. It's really good Another movie i just never really got super into was scrooge d- i just never could get into that one to watch it a few times and i was like it's not for me. Yeah i i guess that was also kind of weird you know. It's like a weird t. That's the one obviously screws christmas christmas story. So since we're on the topic of movies. I know when you had me on the nonsense podcast I think it was like i. I was spying like your movie posters. And i'm trying to think of i think it was a hitchcock movie poster that i spied in the background which migrate there Nor was it northwest by. What's that movie. called by. northwest northbound. Okay it is. Cary grant up for to catch a thief right. Okay yes okay. Now i remember. I knew it was a carey grim. Remember which one it was So what's where did. Where did you get interest in older films like that. A mother hundred percent. My mother She likes old movies and stuff. I remember being a little kid downstairs. you know the the end of the philadelphia story with her which is k. Grant and Kari grant james dealer in katherine hepburn all star studded cast for the time. Yeah and For years and years you've had hanging in the house. She has breakfast at tiffany's poster-hanging she hasn't into wonderful life poster-hanging now with milo further even more of them hanging throughout the house She got me watching all his old movies. And i love them. I love even the campy ones. I love it. It's just fun to watch. Because it's all based around the acting whether they overreact or whether it's just right on acting it's all based around the act and gives them how limited they were set and all that stuff the great movies. Yeah and suburban some of this stuff going back to that era. Some of the stuff that they were able to pull off with special effects was still pretty cool. I mean you obviously when you look at it. Now you're like oh wow like if the head was fake or whatever but for the time considering like you're like oh that's the head to actually pretty decent like you know they. They had to physically make those special effects which is just so and that went for like everything they had to make these things and black and white especially on film so hired to shoot the lighting and everything mattered so much yeah So what i mean. So what are your do. You have like an all time. The top five or top ten of or partial louisa partial to certain actors or definitely a love. He's great great. I love watching his acting. Big james stewart fan humphrey bogart. Obviously three of the biggest.

"Here is a sound bite from our mayor. This is Lori Lightfoot. She's really good about going on MSNBC more people. Here's his rant, more people. Listen to WGN Radio in Chicago. Then watch MSNBC in Chicago. If you're the mayor of Chicago, and you want to reach Chicagoans about how your paneling the pandemic, you should go on Bob Surat show. Not the morning TV show on MSNBC because more Chicagoans are listening to Bob than watching MSNBC. Okay. This is what the mayor said. This is cut one. We've had three weeks of safely and implementing our plan until the teachers union blew it up. We had preschool and special needs teachers and their students back in our school since the beginning of January, so proof positive that our plan actually works. I do think the science and the medicine is on the mayor's side on the school side, but When you say they blew it up. That just doesn't help and that plays nationally. It doesn't play locally. It doesn't help. The union is guilty of that Lori Lightfoot gets angry sometimes, and she falls into that same trap. She last out it a reporter a couple of weeks ago who didn't deserve it, and I don't know if the union deserves it or not, But I'm telling you that language does not help. Later in the press conference, though, she said this we started a program just last week called Protect Chicago. Plus, we're going deep into the 15. Most challenged neighborhoods through the pandemic and providing them with free back scene. Free vaccine. They're going to go into the neighborhood. So I clicked around about that. I felt wow, that's kind of news. And I did find an article saying that the city has partnered with and Steve, You probably know more about this than I do, but they've partnered with this company. And its own amalgam of health providers in the Chicago Land area. You go on their site, and then it says, answer these questions. And so I did. And it said Congratulations. You qualify for the free vaccine schedule an appointment. They're all filled. They're all filth through February. You know, the I know that we need to learn to be patient at the end of the day, even if the systems were running perfectly. It still wouldn't magically mean that there would be more vaccine. There's only so much vaccine So while I do think we have a problem coordinating the sign up process. At the end of the day. The biggest problem is that there's just not enough vaccine out there. But should you sign up with Walgreens? Should you sign up with the state? The county A lot of people are just calling their doctor and saying, Hey, Doc, could you get me in line? And they said, we know you're doing that. So here in Chicago is Way to do it. You go on this site, but there's no appointments available on that site. So it's a mixed message. When the mayor says, Listen, all you teachers out there. We have even offered the teachers free vaccines. There's not enough vaccines. Part of the problem with that, too, is if you lined all of the teachers in the Chicago Teachers union up and said, OK, who wants the vaccine? A lot of them wouldn't take it. I'm not sure with CTU. His position on that is, But if they say we need the schools to be safe, and the teachers themselves won't take the vaccine Then Howard is the school's ever going to be safe. There in lies that problem. Um, what else we're gonna mention here? King John during the filming of Ground Hog Day. Don't know if you heard our conversation yesterday with Stephen Tobolowsky, the guy that plays Ned Ryerson on ground Hog day. We watched that movie in my house last night just for the fun of it. It was ground Hog's day after all, and we I've been talking about it on the radio, so we watch the movie. It was really fun. King John during the filming of Ground Hog Day.

What do you mean to have her? He says. I don't know if your audience knows the classic profile of the release of the movie, A movie is released, and ordinarily, it makes a huge amount of money. That first week and the second week the movie plays. It plays at a reduction of 55 0% of audience. That is the standard ground. Hard days went up. The second week, and it went up the third week and it went up the fourth week, which was absolutely unheard of, and that's why we thought Oh, my goodness, This is something special. Well, if you think about it, or if you watch it again, and I've done that. Maybe you forget, but are then reminded how dark the movie is. I mean, it's Bill Murray and you are hilarious, but it's certainly has a dark side about three quarters of the way through when he realizes he can't get out of this. Repeating loop, and he tries to kill himself, sometimes in comical ways. But the movie gets a little dark, doesn't it? Oh, no wonder if that's why it's sort of had this enduring appeal. It's not a one off Bill Murray and I. We began shooting that street scene, the first scene of the first day of shooting the movie..

And it's maybe why the movie's been so successful. He's a good storyteller. That guy Stephen Tobolowsky 200 films and TV shows to his credit, including things like Basic Instinct. And a whole host of movies and TV shows. So part of that conversation if you missed him Come your way after 11 30 about that op Ed in the paper the other day. Gerald McNair is the school administrator in South Holland's district, 1 51 that is in the Chicago area. Of course. He joins us on W gm Doctor McNair Thanks for being on WGN. How are you today? Hello, John. I've been listening to you for years. I absolutely love your show, John. This conversation is off to a very good start. Appreciate your joining us and thank you for those kind words. Um, so tell me about your job first. Doctor, you said school Administrator. What do you do it South Holland. We'll do a lot of ministry and I'm a school principal Wonderful school district, 1 51. We really, really are doing some marvelous things. Look up our students, our staff. We have such a supportive community. And so, John, when I Been involved in education about 22 years course, started off as a teacher and moved on working a possum or district and now in South Hollis condition I couldn't be more happy, but what we are doing in our school district. Thanks for asking about my personal life. Well, just tell me one more thing about that. So then how many students? Are you the principle of about 350 students in my building as entire district we have about close to 1600 students, and we have a wonderful leader, Dr Hill, who's our superintendent, and we have a very very can do spirit. All of our students can learn it's her motto. And we are doing the best we can to provide a first rate education to our wonderful students and their parents. How are you doing it in South Holland? You guys remote in or out? What are you doing? Well, safety. First we are stay a remote but is a day by day kind of thing that we're monitoring with the help of our school board, and hopefully, when things are safe and so forth, we can come back to more traditional way. Not why I called you. But we talked about this earlier how the kids were doing and it's amazing how many of them are cheating on tests and assignments. Now, did you hear any of that? And I wonder what you all think about that on the education side, John. I don't think that's happening in our district. At least we hope you were marvelous job making sure students are held accountable but we are chancel. These are very difficult circumstances so we must be gentle. My staff is reading a wonderful book called Trauma Sensitive Classrooms. And so we understand the different issues that students are dealing with the sober, very mindful about that, and very gentle and how we approach what we do here in our district. Gentle trauma sensitive classrooms. What does that mean? Well, students are going through a lot, and we have to understand what their plight is in covert 19 has just kind of made it worse. And so when we deal with students who may be going through different things are agitated and movie. There was a reason for well, you must seek first to understand. Cameras and their cameras are off. Doctor I What do you do to get him to? Because to me when the camera's on the students more engaged when the cameras off, it's it's a perfect representation of how challenging it is for the teacher. The kid's not even showing up. I can't see them. What do you say about that? He was incentive news incentives different kind of ways to motivate students in the vast majority of them comply, And when we don't get what we won't be contact appearance. Me and my assistant principal. Mrs. Rush will even go to the homes that we have to, but part of it is just building Senate. And most of the kids willing to comply, But at times there moments But there are so time shine when they may not want to disclose was going on at their homes. And so sometimes they turn those cameras off because they want to be protective. Certain situations that they may be dealing with. What's the racial makeup of the South Holland school year? The principle of About 30% Hispanic population and about one or 2% Caucasian and the rest African American, You have a very, very wonderful environment. And we learned so much from me that jug and diversity is key. So in this op ed in the Chicago Tribune, I say that because you wrote solutions to Carjacking epidemic can come from the black community, too. And I just want to quote you to you a little bit here. You said the reality is that no matter how much money is spent on law enforcement, no matter how many hours a task force puts into curb these acts of violence, Carjackings Solutions also must come from within the black community. Parents and neighbors must watch their teenagers or young adults. Watch who they are hanging with. Observe if they are getting out of a car that You know, does not belong to their child or their friends. Watch. If there are random wallets or jewelry in the house, watch the kinds of video games they are playing, particularly those that glorify robbing. And stealing, so just expand on that a little bit. Do you think that the black community is you described them are it is not doing enough along those lines..

"1000 people freezing their butts off, waiting to worship a rat. Ned Ryerson member him. Ned Ryerson was played by the actor Stephen Tobolowsky, and he pointed out to Bill Murray that the Woodstock residents were looking at them. While they were filming a scene and they all look famished. So Bill Murray went into a bakery purchased the entire supply of Danishes and handed them out to the crowd. That's incredible story. Ground Hog day movie the ground hog. Remember where he's driving with the ground hog? He was bit three times Bill Murray bit three times like that Dang ground hog. And, uh, the the was it, uh Harold Ramos was the director and he was directing and in the movie Stripes and Ghostbusters with Bill Murray, But the movie ended their relationship for some reason. They both the disagreed a lot on how the movie should happen. And finally on his deathbed. Bill Murray talked to Harold Ramos again but for 20 years They didn't talk after the movie ground Hog Day itself. 5 49 on ground Hog day, We'll take a look at the roads with Chuck Ingram coming up next they started using when I was 13 Taylor is in recovery from an addiction to prescription opioids.

"Stephen Tobolowsky. Who you recognize his Ned Ryerson from the movie ground Hog Day, By the way, Rick props to you. Stephen described you as what was it An officer and a gentleman. Or he said something really good about you right? Gonna say that Steven is one of the nicest guys he has come back to win back for ground hard days. Several times, I think maybe was a 2004 and 2018 or 19. And then when Steven and Bill Murray were in town a year ago, right now, making the Jeep commercial that was on the Super Bowl when they came back and re enacted their scenes from from ground, Doug, It was just magical in town. That was terrific commercial. I forgot all about that. Because the Super Bowl was on ground. Just Let me just mention what Rick did for me in terms of that commercial. Was doing one day at a time in Los Angeles. It was our first show of season four, so it's very nerve racking. Get a call from my agent and manager saying, Stephen, You're going to have to leave this weekend tow fly somewhere to do a commercial Now. I haven't done commercials in years and I said, Well, this is impossible. They go. And I said, where we flying? And they said Oh, either Chicago or New York. I said, Listen, I have a network run through for one day, the time on Friday. I have camera blocking on Monday. It's impossible for me to fly across the country and do a commercial. This is nuts. And then he said, Well, it may have something to do with ground hard debt and I go. What? And they said they're trying to keep everything top secret. So who do I call? I call Rick the Lares. I call Rick and I said, Rip! They're saying something about a ground hog commercial. Do you know anything, And Rick told me that they were redoing the entire square of Woodstock toe look like it did in the film. Is that correct, Rick? Pretty close. Yeah, they changed all the storefront windows to make it look like the warnings and Yeah, And so I knew at that point, I was flying to Chicago and I was going back to Woodstock. I love him embrace its You know what I mean? Yeah, I mean, I just I see your body of work, and I see this movie which a lot of people remember fondly, But I think at some point some actors might have said Okay, fine. I I don't want to. I don't want to sing that song anymore or be that person for you anymore, But you seem to be okay with that. Well, it it's you know, I'm not that okay with Clayton Townley, head of the Ku Klux Klan from Mississippi burning people love that movie, too. But Karan today is kind of iconic classic. What one thing about the movie That's so great and I'll just touch on this briefly. Is that and I don't know how much of this witness except for my blast, right? But the first Rick Bill Murray and I, we began shooting that street scene, the first scene of the first day of shooting the movie. And I was nervous is could be and you have to understand that that period in history, probably same today. Actors like Bill Murray are known for certain things. And when ground hog day was being made, Bill Murray was known as one of these wild, muddy guys and movies that you throw him in a situation with no consequences, and he's hilarious. And that's kind of the way the script was playing through. But by the end of that first week, Harold Ramos got together with Danny Rubin the rider and said, Wait a minute. What kind of movie are we shooting? What is the story We're trying to tell And at the very end of the first week, we were shooting a huge scene where Bill realizes he has no consequences. And he paints, he spray paints the inside of his room at the end, and then it cuts within of him. Chain sawing the furniture in half and anything the bathroom, cutting his hair into a Mohawk, wild and crazy stuff. It took two days to shoot in Harold Ramos through the through the footage way. Unheard of the first week of filming. When the studio's air looking over a director shoulder to see what What are you giving me for our money? They throw away the key scene that Bill Murray is this Would go nuts doing and instead, Harold Ramos changed it to a scene where Bill Murray is in bed, takes a pencil from behind his ear breaks it. What's happened to pencil on the bedside table half on the clock radio in the next morning when Sonny and Cher plays the pencil asshole, And when I saw that scene with the full audience, they gasped. And Harold Ramos and Danny Rubin at that point started rewriting the entire movie. And they changed it from being Bill Murray just being wild and crazy with no consequences than deciding. He's bored with that. I'm gonna live the straight narrow to the a man's search for meaning. And, like Harold Ramos said, I wanted the movie to depict the Buddhist idea of the human being that it takes 10,000 years to perfect the human soul. And I think one reason why ground Hog Day has endured is because of the depth of the message of the movie of what it takes to refine the human soul in Bill Murray's case. It takes Giving up yourself and doing what you can to help others. And when that happens, love comes to you. And also you escape the trap of time. It's beautiful. Then it becomes a nicer guy when he turns in the movie, and before the break you described how movies normally fall off 50% after the first weekend, But for four straight weeks, your movie got bigger and bigger and bigger. And maybe that's part of it right. People realize this isn't just a romp. There's there's something going on here. It's when the movie when a movie goes up like that, with one reason a movie goes up is because someone who saw the first couple days talks to their, uh Friends. Yeah, yeah, members of their family and say, you got to see this movie with me and they go back and see it again. That's why a movie goes up and it's multiple and how many times have people seen this movie? You know, people have seen ground Hog day, probably a dozen times. Already. Most people I think you like comedies and movies like Harry Met Sally the scene it a dozen times or spinal Pat. And they're gonna watch it again tomorrow. How many times we get people We get people coming from across the country to celebrate ground Hog day in Woodstock, the the lasting impression this movie and when they made the movie 30 years ago, almost There was We have no concept that people will still be talking about ground Hog day years to come, and it just grows and gets bigger and bigger each year when people see no. When people think about ground hog day they're not seeing in their mind Punks a Tony Pennsylvania, they're seeing Woodstock because that that's the image, but the movie really is great. People's head completely agree..
