"Name one of them. 100 points, so many points. Okay, so they did Barbie. They're still doing it. They're still doing bother me. Yeah. Yeah. She's huge for them. Was it a good point? Is one of them a classic Barbie? No. Okay, may I have a hint then? No. Nope, that's fine. There's no hints on this one. Okay. Let me give one more guess if it's so difficult. It's not Barbie. Is it Orson Welles? Is it their famous horse and wells action? I'm sorry. I'm just having a moment. Just remembering the young child. Bill and I would play Orson Welles. The answer. Major Matt mason pulsar and big gym. Yes, Mattel is bringing back the 1970s action figure, big gym. A hero with a name that is only appropriate if your lumberjack camp has two gyms. This is all true. He came with a dumbbell, a weight belt, and a karate board. He was dressed only in a pair of orange shorts and is defining feature was that if you bent his arm, his bicep muscle bulged up. He was the centerpiece of Mattel's little known line of homoerotic heroes. It is, I remember this because this was the first action figure to be openly divorced. He was definitely Ken's quote unquote roommate. Apparently these toys were a hit because there was a whole line of big gym action figures. This is all true, including characters named

"The voice of the proceeding commission was not the actual voice of the winner. One of the first times that I think I really was very impressed and aware of what you were doing. I think it seems to have been the case for a lot of people because this ended up with resulting in Emmy and Golden Globe nominations was when you played Orson Welles in the TV movie, RKO two 81. This is 1999, a movie about the making of Citizen Kane. I believe you, first of all, Orson Welles and you, these two great voices, different when I know you worked on it, but in hindsight, great casting. I know you put on some extra pounds to play Orson Welles, but just I'm very good at putting on weight. That's the other thing I struggle with. I put on 20 pounds for this interview. No, so I guess I wonder though. We did that feel like something shifted there. It seems like the industry looked at you a little bit differently after that. I don't think so. No. I was terrified. Because I was just such a big fan of voice and wells and my mother was like, you're going to play Orson Welles and I was like, I don't really have a choice. It's a job, man. I still have and my whole family was very embarrassing. But I think it's that thing that they associate you with the roles you play. And so it was smart for me to start Shakespeare because everybody thought I was smart. I wasn't. I was just doing Shakespeare. And the same thing happened that they cast me a source and wells. Everybody thought I was smart. That was the beginning of me thinking, oh, maybe I'll be a director. You know, they all think I can

"And there are sources saying that Fred savage has been doing a lot of self reflection. Since being fired, you know, they say he's committed to reflecting on any wrongdoings, Fred has really taken this issue very seriously and is doing a lot of self reflection. About how he can and should have handled different circumstances. That's what somebody told page 6. They also said that Fred knows he can be an asshole at times. There are some unresolved issues that Fred wants to deal with. Despite everything, the word is savage has had overwhelming support from friends and colleagues over the 1D years production. Yeah, I've only heard he's the nicest guy in the business. Then you turn to another story that he's been an asshole forever. It's like, wait, what? How could these things be so different? I don't know. So, anyhow, word is he's being fully supported home by his wife, Jennifer Lynn stone. I don't think he's being fully supported. I don't believe that. I can see him coming home from being fired and his wife going, why are you certainly what happened? And he's going to tell what happened. And like most wives, she'd probably say, you're going to go back to that office and you're going to say I'm sorry to everyone. And then you're going to write a letter, not a text and email to every one of the crew, all the producers and beg for your job back. I don't need you here at home all day, Fred, feeling sorry for yourself. And wallowing in self pity. That's how most wives get. Don't you?

"The town. And I was so intrigued with this true, this relationship. I think there's a part of me that, like, Newton boys, it's no different than it's a story I'm coming into that I've discovered that I love. So that's all we're doing here. We're just telling stories we love, whether it's based on something that I directly experienced or something I'm really intrigued by, I don't think that's much of a difference. I really don't. There's nothing special about my life. It's just something I jump off from sometime. But a great story is a great story and great characters, especially. So I really just dialed into that relationship. I was trying to figure out what went on between them too. And it became maybe more personal than any of them because you gave the real Bernie two of the happy years of his last 20 years. Yeah, he was actually briefly released from prison after the movie and lived with lived in our garage. He's a total sweetheart of a guy. You go through the prison. Prisons growing up in Huntsville where the state prisons have permeated my life and I have a lot of attitudes about. I've actually made a documentary. It's going to be on HBO. Later this year, about the criminal criminal justice in Texas. And it's a portrait of my hometown. I've been around it my whole life. My dad had had a friend stepfather. He was stepfather. It worked at a prison. I had another step. That was in prison, but that's another story. My mom was a real character. After Bernie, it was back to the before series was before midnight in 2013. How it goes. And then you get me in Orson Welles. That's in there. I saw the Toronto. Okay, there's a couple of skips in there. What's the guy that Chris McKay? Yeah, this guy was like watching Orson Welles has been brought back from the town. That was fun. Talk about, yeah. People talk about nostalgia. I was nostalgia for an era. I never lived in recreating 1937. When you're doing that, you feel the magic of movies. You're just recreating a time and a place..

"Switch twice. Like I'll do it so so you can see it. Look, here's the move. Seattle borders line up. I'll put it on the bottle. I'm teaching you right now. That's how I do it. Hold it tight, don't make it impossible. Because you know them if I have diamonds, ready? Right. Without looking at it, what would you bet on hearts of diamonds? Pretend that would you bet heart zero hearts here? Or could I impress you if the heart was on top diamonds on bottom? Because you had to turn your hand over. Go ahead and turn your hand over. Everybody thinks they're so different, but really there's also generalities among people. So you can really kind of look at a group and you can estimate which person's going to react a certain way. And you get better and better as the more you do it. It's kind of like what psychics do. So I don't like psychics basically when you walk in, they profile you right away, and they've done it so many times that they can kind of cold read what you do, where you're from, what you're looking for, whether you're skeptical, whether you're not, so it's like, you just learn to read people. Read the cues. Yeah. What are some lines or approaches that you use when you just cold approach somebody? There was a named Harvey Cohen that I used to love. He taught me so much and he would approach people when he would do magic and he would say he was very fumbly with the cards. But while he was fumbling cards, he was secretly like loading cards in your pocket and doing all this stuff. So he kind of approached with this non approach. It wasn't like, look, I'm a magician. I'm an amazing. It was almost like he couldn't hold the cards. He'd be like hoping that he was going to succeed. And then at the end when you thought everything had gone wrong and there's two cards in your pocket and one on, so it was like the approach that I always like to do magic is the opposite of what a magician would do 'cause I always imagined if somebody could really do magic. They wouldn't really have big pattern. They would kind of be fumbling, and they'd say, look at this thing and then just do something. So that was always the approach, simple. Simple and understated, I think, is the best approach. At what point did you go to acting school? You did good night. Yeah, with Brian Collins. I was amazing. I learned so much. How did you decide to go back to school? Well, you know, there's a famous quote that Orson Welles said, but it's from Robert down where he says magician is just an actor playing the part of a magician. So at that time, I was close up magician. There was really no there was no business in it. There was no way to make a living at it. So I figured I would study acting and take it seriously and maybe apply it to magic and see what happens. And it was a really valuable year because what you learn and acting schools living truthfully in a given imaginary circumstance. So it's interesting because when you apply that to magic, it's like, instead of these are just tricks. You kind of like almost believe what you're seeing on some level. Not believe it. Like, ah, how do I do that? But you kind of play into that as opposed to the silly pattern the silk trick and it I feel like the magic comes to life that way. You know, it makes a performance more interesting. One of the best things Brian taught me there. He was an early mentor to me. One of the quotes that his dad gave to him is always surround yourself with people that will inspire you or help you grow. And that was just a great piece of advice. And I took that very seriously and pursued people that I looked up to or that I admired and tried to learn things from them. Since I didn't have really father figure anything like that. Did you look for father figures going to throughout that adolescent period or was it more surrounding yourself with peers? No, well, I mean, early on, I would read about all the people I looked up to and you know, that was kind of like my college was finding people that did things that I was really amazed by and then learning as much as I could. And then what I started doing is I started finding all of the books and Nobel Prize winners. And then in literature, specifically, and then I would read what books they recommended and then I would read the books that they recommend then on the back of that book it would be what this book was influenced by. So I started going through lots of that stuff. Original hyperlinks. Yeah. When did you start fasting? And why? I've been obsessed with fasting since I was a kid. But I think it started when my mother gave me Siddhartha to read. The Herman has the book. And I read it when I was 11 years old and in it. He fast and he stands and he does these things where he sees the world in a different way and he realizes that he can control his body and with his mind. So that was the beginning of the seed of the curiosity. And then loving the way you feel when you're fast colors chains, the blues become vibrant, you notice the sky. You become more emotional. So I took everything away and it was incredible. So the fasting, so sit hard times one of my favorite books. Absolutely. And I remember have you guys read that? It's a short read. It's amazing. Short read. And I remember at least in two instances. So he's trying to court this noblewoman, I think she is. And he's also trying to get a job with a merchant at one point. And they ask him because he's effectively at least acting the part of monk at the time. They say, well, what can you give? What can you do? And he said, I can think I can wait, and I can fast. And he talks about the value of not being beholden to food and he says for, for instance, if you asked me to work for you right now, and I needed food. I'd have to say yes to whatever you offer me, but he's since I can fast. I can think about it more rationally. But I've done 7 and ten day fasts. I've never gone as far as you have. But it's incredible when you click over from carbohydrate dependent to pulling on your fat stores. I mean, cognitively, everything changes. It's very, very interesting. It's hard to go back to how it was before in terms of viewing food and so on. Yeah..

"And i've never forgotten that speech And then also the scene where the old lady gets kicked out of the choir. We talk a lot lately about ted lasso and one of the things. That's so great about that show. Is this notion that kindness can be dramatic. You know that like we. We've been conditioned to think that drama is about conflict and about like people having fights and lily ponds or whatever. You know that that it's all got to be like insults and and and you know one-upmanship and all this kind of stuff but sometimes doing the right thing and being nice and compassionate somebody else can be good storytelling so the fact that this woman who has been with choir forever and it's just like not able to find a key with the map now. He takes her aside as like. He doesn't want to have to do it but he knows he has to do it. She doesn't want it to happen but she knows it has to happen and she lets them off the hook by being like you know what you need an assistant you. I need to go and make sure that these robes are updated. People don't have their music that at about like she basically like saves him from having to deliver this crushing blow to her by like volunteering to come in. Do something else and still be part of the choir. Have this place to go to and to be around these people. I think it's a lovely scene. And it's beautifully acted ruth nelson great actress. She's in robert altman's a wedding and like a million other things and houseman is such a pro houseman. Goes back to like orson welles and the mercury theatre. Yeah and then in the seventies you know. He wins an oscar. Yeah for the paper chase where he plays like stentorian stern really like you know taskmaster of a law school professor at harvard. And so in this movie you see him also kind of having that taskmaster kind of thing where he's very you know he's tough and he's demanding and he wants soup out of you but he does it in a way where it's like. I want you to give me this and you want to give me this because you giving it to me is going to mean that you are better than you were when you started this process so yeah i think there's a lot of feels here.

That should be talked about. I thought that's a healthy thing now. Look i'm biased. I want to recognize that upfront. But i really believe that we do a lot of good in the world.

But he's not afraid to do it when he's horned up for something like this is going to be horny as shit and this is going in the game and he would probably say it as such if you ask them like. Why did you put in. Like i thought it was hot. I put it isn't there done made me very horny. Saw the art that he retweeted of like i. I don't know if it's considered queer baiting or if like a a a it's it's sam and another man engaged in a very sexual embrace. Yes yeah i've sent to me. You've already seen it. But i wasn't gonna say a lot of people tagged me specifically tagged me and me only. Yes i appreciate it. I liked it but he's been tweeting a lot recently. Because i think this past week was metal gears. Thirty fourth anniversary like the original metal gear and i had forgotten that win. That game came out. He was twenty four years old but he was talking about knowing that such a staggering. God feet to me. Who else was twenty. Four orson welles when he directed citizen k. It's not as cool for some reason. But orson welles was born a hundred now. I have to look it up. Let's see he was twenty five. Okay yeah that is actually. That's pretty remarkable to make a movie that's endured stands the test of time guys citing sounds still one of the on the top ten perennially. I guarantee for our listeners that neither of these men have seen the movie. I've seen it vendors game like ten times. I had to watch it in film school. And really i was surprised it was actually good like they. Don't you know usually they're like. Oh this is a movie that you have to watch and then you. You're like oh boy. Okay this i was like. Wow this is actually really good and then. Mary sat down to watch it with me and she was like this sucks and i was like okay. Well now i'm seeing through your eyes. Oh yes no there are. There are not really any. I'm like at the time. It was good and i can see. I can appreciate the film. Snobs that listen to this. Or like i'm gonna kill them but like the like. I appreciate the artistry. And i appreciate the just like how it propelled film forward. Pretty sure but that doesn't mean that it's like probably boring to watch now like like anything even stuff from like the nineties. I'm like i don't need to see this. This is how who cares. Like i only want to see a new movie the newest one off the presses. Give me some of the. Here's one here's one. What is the topic we talk about so people are up in arms. I wrote people are actually up in arms or people are just saying that people are up in arms but you know. There's all these debates about it. Accessibility in games and that because that's always tied up with difficulty and seconds to the double fines legal again. We covered on the show With ashley escape we reviewed psycho notch. Revisited that game kinda excited. I'm pretty excited about the sequel. I think hopefully it'll be. Hopefully it will deliver but on sites to was just going to flat out. Have an invincibility toggle So we played last part two and last of us part two has all sorts of granular things. You can change just to make the game more accessible and easier to play This is just like a goes straight up like sledgehammer approach of just like your character's invincible and you can just go through the game and and not have to worry about failing..

We don't like to share especially with china and russia so that's never going to be admitted in my humble opinion. The simplest answer why they never went. They're not going to go back to roswell they're not going to go back. Seventy four years to anything because then they would admit that they've been lying to us for seventy four years old. And that's why these shrunk the the study to the last seventeen years because they have to admit they. Oh well we've been we've been lying to you for seventy four years so then everybody's thinking well. What else are they like to us about. Do you think like with today's age.

Nineteen thirty eight. The radio show was orson welles mercury on the air version of h. g. wells war of the worlds nineteen thirty. Eight war was brewing. As germany invaded austria japan was strongly aligned with the invader prior to world war two. It was forecast. That britain would suffer night air bombing attacks causing large numbers of civilian casualties and mass destruction. It was widely agreed that navigation targeting would be more difficult if manmade lights on the ground could be extinguished as early as july nineteen thirty eight. American citizens were urged to practice lights out beginning at dusk it would not be called blackout drills until nineteen thirty nine. Fear across the country as rumor spread about coming to the aid of our british allies. Should war break out that the sounds of war that came over the radio that october thirtieth nineteen thirty eight were not from europe but from mars. This was a live broadcast across america five.

"That was his dream and once he gets that he doesn't feel any different than he did beforehand. So that's so. He didn't fulfill his purpose. And i think it's just really fascinating it is. That's really fascinating topic for a pixar movie to to really dive into which is part of the reason why i wanted to talk about it on my show. It's not something that you normally find in in pixar in general or urged animation films or. I guess you could even say movies in general. Don't don't hammer this. In as as bluntly as this movie does and i. I see that it's a bad thing. I think this movie does a fantastic job With its storytelling. And the way that the world works and everything like that and i think i think it really. I think what ends up in needs to happen is this movie needs to set a path for other animated movies after it to instead of just coming up with some brain dead plot. I think you need to put a little bit more thought. It did not not every movie needs to be emotional and philosophical or anything like. That's not what i'm saying but this movie takes that role of you know. Here's here's a philosophical idea that we want we want kids to to think about and it really runs away with it and as a fantastic job. Look it's denver another break except for break when we return.

On Orson Welles's Birthday

"Yesterday would be auxin wells, birthday. I promised some people who wrote to me, I talk about Austin wells. There's a lot I could say. I know many of you think of his brilliant directing career. Maybe you celebrate Citizen Kane, a film he directed, but he was 24. People call it a film that's never been never been surpassed. I've never been crazy about the film. I know he did things then that Warren Dunn, but I don't know. I'm not even sure how much of the film he wrote if you see the movie make. There's a lot to be said that mankiewicz wrote a bunch of that or maybe all of that movie. I don't know. Austin was always. Felt to me as a big fat phony. You know, he married my all time beauty, Rita Hayworth, and he used to beat her and he used to make her do things she didn't want to do. And once I used to hear those stories as a kid, my father used to love to tell me about actors and directors who were cock suckers. And he said, that also is no good. He beats Rita Rita Hayworth. He beats Rita cancino. My father loved that her name was cancino. Which was an Italian, he just loved saying it at a vowel at the end. But Rita Hayworth is my all time Hollywood

Is Zach Snyder's 'Justice League' a Good Movie?

"The very controversial for so many reasons for content reasons for formatting reasons i saw so many memes about the fact that it was reformatted. Four three zack zack. Snyder's justice league has officially dropped. We say dropped on the internet right. It's not like premiering a movie theater. It's just dropping on on. Streamers is fishy dropped on hbo. Max there's a complicated back story where zacks under had to leave mid production because of a family tragedy which is very sad judd app not try that patel just we took over just we apparently was a total asshole and there were all sorts of lawsuits. About what a dickey was and then you know. The film by many fans was not felt to reflects what zach snyder intended and there was long discussion of a zacks undercut image. Peo- max put in seventy million dollars to shoot a whole bunch more footage to make the zack snyder. Cut of justice league. Come out for years later. This is an interesting story because it is different. From a lot of directors cut stories. A lot of directors cut stories are ten years later. I'm grateful the studio give me access to the archive to rescan the negative and re-cut it is very rare in fact i can't think of an example where someone's like four years later. I got an extra seventy five million dollars to shoot additional footage to make an alternate movie like it is. Is there another example. That are missing where somebody got that. I don't know but what i do know. Is that in the history of film. There have been many many many directors cuts and extended editions and versions. That were revisited. We've talked about some of them here before. And most of our audience familiar with many of them It is not unheard of obviously for there to be something that prevents the original vision to be completed by the person who had it. And obviously there are many instances where somebody could go back and try and piece things together. Only orson welles. A number of times We even talked to. I talked to walter merch about going back in and recruiting and working on touch of evil. There are the magnificent emerson's with him as well. I think he's one of the early versions. Were early famous versions but bladerunner famously for anybody mir charles age And so much inbetween. It's such a common story but this one does stand apart because yeah he was given basically a massive feature film budget to make more of it his version of it and it is an interesting thing like will this happen more often. Will we get criminal. And saying actually i want to shoot a whole different ending too dark dark knight rises fifteen years later. Because i've rethought it. And i wanna go into a very complicated sort of relationship between the artists and the work when you remove the theatrical premiere and when you open up the idea of shooting original additional footage it is a it's vastly different so Full disclosure wasn't able to finish it have a two year olds. Get very sleepy very easily. Don't have four hours with two year. Old where i can watch the whole thing but universally in my social media of the people in my life everyone i know seems to have really enjoyed the new cup more than the last cut. I do not understand why people hate on sex neither so much. I genuinely enjoyed his dawn of the dead. I thought it was solid. I also am a like. I wanted to get into movies. Originally to make watchmen. When i was nice school. I don't hate his watchman. Cut like everyone else does. I don't understand whether so mad about it. I think people to hate sex. Neither for some reason that does not make sense to me. I'll also disclosed and then michelle. I know michelle is actually watched both right but so i have watched the new one. I watched the snyder cut. I did it. I made it through. Well di i not a big comic book movie fan. In general i have seen many of them though. And i did not see the original justice league so i had to do some research on what changed which was really interesting to me. I also actually really think highly of him from a visual standpoint. I find that even when he's not like a lot of the movies directed this one included. The material is just not great in my opinion but he's visually so committed to the bit that he does that his sequences really worked for me. And i think he's a great comic book movie director choice. Because i think he's really. His camera is like ballot. Check i think his action sequences are visually compelling. And i think his approach like to me the thing that felt the weakest about this. I mean obviously the some some major casting problems major script problems but all that aside i think it it mimicked. Some of what marvel does too much sometimes which i don't really like. They're some straight up. Like this is just an avenger. Seen but not as good. And i don't really love what it was in the first place personally but all my my personal take aside. I think filmmakers He is just he really doesn't. He's earnest he's not tongue in cheek and sometimes it gets a little silly and you might laugh. But i think his earnest approach to how dramatic he is with his camera like from dawn of the dead to the three hundred to a and tackling real quick charles before michelle I think that warner brothers is known to have some really tight released times. They don't have the same war chest that disney does for like they. They set these release dates. They they have to make them. I'm not going to get into the wise. And if sets really true but and that puts a lot of pressure on finishing something and delivering something. And i think that some of the the flaws in some of these dc comic book movies have to do with some of that some of us so anyway onto you. Michelle i f Well done on watching. The center is a endeavor. I i think i knew what the runtime was. But it doesn't click in my head until i was watching and the timeline at the bottom. It has like how long you've watched. And i miss read it. I thought it was much like when it said two and a half hours at the bottom. I thought that was a total Not they meant time that i had laughed and that was quite a surprise. So it's long. Don't don't kid yourself jack. Knifed mini series has parts could have been released in parts. My first input. If you will is i feel like i. Keep reading the quote snyder cut. That snyder wouldn't release in two thousand seventeen and i would argue that. I don't know this is i. Don't think this is at all what would have been released for so many reasons. It's a it's a post weeden post tragedy post. Hbo max snyder display. I don't think we would be able to release a for. I could be wrong. A four hour epic in a theater in twenty seventeen. I don't obviously say that. There are many teaser. There are changes are subtle there. Some people have pointed them out and in terms of very subtle and different. Like stolen changes. That i think are in there now. For example there's a billboard others billboard in the city at some point in the messages you're not alone and a lot of people have guessed that something that snyder put in in reference to his daughter. Like these little things that have been put in log away 'cause post years of reflection on it and i just don't think not content aside just the run time. I'm not sure how many people really yes for hours within a theatre. Let's do it. I don't know if we the same. i do. Think a really interesting experiment if anyone ever wants to ever play with this idea of same footage different story concept of how to edit something together. Because i started watching the josh sweden version the same evening. Don't do this same evening through off after watching case for a minute i thought you were. You said you meant side by side like you had to i. Four by three setup does allow you. I will say to have it on the side of my screen. As i was like doing some work so i will say the former three at least helpful in the arrangements of your browser window because like i'm not cutting anything off because it's not a letterbox or other format so the four by three is is is makes it easier to have the size. No i tried watching the conversion right. After some of the scenes giving away some of the scenes that feel pivotal in the story. Line are like thrown in the credits. The opening like oh i get with. This is going to do you. I don't know if i can sit through

Well, actually, neither is necessary. If they'd only disintegrated on being put into the cocktail. However, if you want to use some gun issue congrats be in an eyeball. You happen to have an extra one around the house. This is a television promo for the Vampire is show which ran in Los Angeles in the mid 19 fifties. Tell us what What was that show all about? Well, one Hunt. Stromberg, the station manager finally found my island brought her in for an interview. He said he wanted her to do Morticia from the Adams family, although more Tricia was yet unnamed and mute. And my listed find who's going to be the other characters of Adam's family says Oh, well, we can't afford them. We just want you. And so then, she says, Well, I can't possibly do it then because that would be ripping off Charles Adams. But I'll tell you what I'll do. I'll change the character up. And so he gave her four days and that's how Vampira was born. And she was to come on air and do a little monologue to introduce horror films, and I think every segment may have lasted about I've maybe even 10 minutes, and then they would go back to the movie, and during the breaks, she would do her little stick. And so it was the only time in history that the commercials that was my love was more popular than the film. And how did she see her relationship with Vampira? In the beginning. Of course she loved her was her creation. It was her baby. Then, as she got into her forties, fifties and sixties and lived in abject poverty. She wanted desperately to be rid of her. Because she was being stalked by necrophiliac sex. She was being stalked by fans our fans through dead animals on her doorstep. Oh, my gosh, knocked on her windows at night. And she said that during the full moon this would be in the seventies. She had to sleep in abandoned cars. Um, because she couldn't afford a hotel and she would seek out unlocked doors and sleep in there for the night because The fans were so rabid Um, speaking in their house, looking in the windows and terrified her. So she really wanted to be rid of the vampire a persona. Later on in life, especially when the movie Ed Wood came out. She started, you know, loving that character again And she says, You know, it's time for the old girl to get her out of mothballs so she could support me. Um, but you know, it was a love hate relationship. If you're just tuning in my guest is Sandra Niimi, the niece of Milon Nurmi. Vampira. Sandra has a new book out about her and called glamour ghoul so In addition to being vampire of You're and was connected either and friendship are romantically with some of the greatest performers of that era of in Orson Welles, James Dean, Anthony Perkins, Marlon Brando. Elvis Presley. What was it like for you to learn later in life about your aunt's relationship with these icons? Well, I was really surprised. I knew about James Dean. It was the platonic relationship. She father them as a son. And he had no mother. So she thought of herself as his mother. But Marlin I didn't know anything about that until I was visiting her, and she showed me a letter written by Marlin asking her to marry him. And I remember being shocked and saying at my life He asked you to marry him, and you turned him down. And she said, Well, of course, he would have cheated on me within a week, and I couldn't have that right, so and she was probably right, but they were friends for over 30 years. And and and Orson Orson Welles. She she had a child with Orson Welles that she gave up for adoption. Right dead. Yes, he was born in 1944. Given up for adoption. And her mother convinced her to do that, because she said, You can't even take care of yourself, let alone a baby. She never for about her. Send those She called him Cal K a l when she wanted to talk to him the rest of her life, But I I always knew from. I don't know how. How old I was. When I found out I had a first cousin. Ah, But how would I find him? You know, Was he even alive? I didn't know. Maybe he went to Vietnam and you know that was the end of him. I don't know. And as it turned out, Through Edna ancestry dot com. We found each other. And I, both of us are elated because they his name is David. He has never known any of his biological family. And my daughter and I are the first that he's known. We've never met yet because of covert. He's in Vermont and I'm in Oregon. What was what was his reaction to finding out that his mother was vampire and his father was Orson Welles. Well. The first thing he said, basically, lab he says, Oh, my God, I've always want to know who my mother was. And now I find out she's a vampire. Isn't that perfect? That's fantastic. Yes. And Orson Welles. You know, these are mindless words. I have every reason to believe her. In the book. I have a lot of cooks that are just Verbatim. What? My letters air. The writings that I found because I wanted the fans to hear every mile is own words. So she gives an account of How was she met Orson Welles when she met Orson Welles, Um, when the child was conceived She was. She was newly pregnant when he upped and married Rita Hayworth. And destroy it, Mila. And so she gave the child away and David, you know, I said, you know, this is Milo's story. You'll have to find out if if it's true, and so he's doing some didna research and Yes. His attorney may be or someone has contacted, Uh, one of Orson's living Children, a daughter. To ask if she would signature to a DNI A and that's where we are now. So, um, I just realizing to younger people are in our audience who listening to this when they hear this story of Vampira. This woman dressed all in black, You know, with an hourglass waist, and she's into introducing, and she's sort of a God and she's introducing horror movies on TV. They might be thinking. Oh, Vampira sounds a lot like Elvira, Mistress of the dark, and there's good reason for that. I mean, you hinted at this earlier Vampira claim that Elvira was a direct rip off of Vampira. Can you can you lay out what she claimed happened? Sure, she was hired by station K. K. J in 1981. They were in Discussions about beginning a new vampire a show and they wanted her to play. Vampire is mother and she says, Well, I couldn't possibly do that, because Vampira has no mother. But they talked the more and she said, Okay. Will occasionally appear. Or maybe just my voice off camera, but I want to choose the girl. And I want to train her. And they said Okay, Milo was very happy. She was going to get the girl and she's gonna be able to train the girl. How's she wanted her to be, And In the meantime, KJ went behind her back and called her in for a meeting and introduced her to Cassandra Peterson. And said, We've got the girl and here she is. Her name is Cassandra Peterson. And my lessons You picked the girl. Yeah, and we gave her the rights to and Milo had a fit, She said. What? You gave her my rights. And he said, Well, yeah, that's between you girls. You you talk about it. And according to Mile of the very first day of filming with Cassandra Peterson, it was called..

"But I don't hate it now as much as I did, but I will say the first What? 12 15 minutes. Was a news real Yes, you know, to set up the scene and set up the background at 12 minutes in. I paused it toe look and see how many minutes do I have left of this piece of crap and I also on my notes that I left at home, I noted. And I think it was almost 20 minutes in that we finally got to see Orson Welles. Playing the role as opposed to Orson Welles in the newsroom news real. You know what I mean? Charlie in the news real? I thought that was pretentious and bothered me. But all in all, I thought it was a great movie. I don't know if it should be rated number one. But definitely in the top five. But I didn't mind the movie and like I said, I watched it 1.5 times before I just ran on time and I couldn't finish it the second time. But I'm actually surprised that I didn't hate it as much as I thought I was gonna, and yesterday was the first time I've watched it all the way through because I've tried watching it before, And I'm like, No, I'm out of here. Yeah s so I can see why it took you lacks a long time to finish and why it sounds like you don't like it either. Jason and I don't blame you, Lex. What did you think? Yeah, it took me a little while and I think it's mostly just the pacing. I didn't hate the film, either. There's some really great themes that are still relevant today about money about fame about loving conditionally. Yeah, stuff. You know, you kind of want to send Marie condo over to, you know, take care of some of that business man. I was like day. He's got a lot of stuff, and he's still very, very unhappy. I like the direction there's a clear direction of this movie. Why did he say Rose, But when he died, and then they explore that, and that, of course, is really good. You can't really full fold laundry during this because it's like you said the editing is really Fast whipper snapper, you know? Whoa! If you blink, you might miss something. And so I think that was that had a lot to do with it. The pacing the sound. Ah bothered me too. With some of the abrupt noises. I know that it It was, you know, to emphasize what was happening. The makeup itself was also very kind of jarring to because there's Orson Welles. He's going through this whole life of Charlie's process. Yeah, so I was gonna ask you guys That was one of my notes. So it's something I wrote down. I wanted to know what you guys thought of the aging process makeup. So you didn't like it? Not very good. But also at the time in 1941. I mean, comparing it to right now. He was 26 when he filmed it, So think about the way he looks. I mean, that's a 26 year old man in that makeup, right? It is remarkable when you think about of the time, the other thing that I could not get out of my mind. I wonder if you guys saw the resemblance to He looks like Steve Patterson. Oh, my God. Shut that. Okay. I just thought, Wow, There's Steve s so anyway, That was another thing. I'm getting in my mind. And then the other thing, it's the little.

The date was October 30th 1938 the radio show was Orson Welles Mercury on the error version of HG Wells War of the Worlds now in 1938 war was brewing Germany invaded Austria. And Japan was strongly along with the Invader prior to World War II. It was forecasted Britain would suffer night are bombing attacks causing large numbers of Civilian casualties in Mass Destruction. It was widely agreed that navigation and targeting would be more difficult if man-made lights on the ground could be extinguished as early as July 1938 American citizens were off. To practice lights out beginning at dusk. It would not be called blackout drills until nineteen thirty-nine fear across the country as rumors spread about coming to the aid of our British allies should War break out but the sounds of war that came over the radio that October 30th 1938 were not from Europe but from Mars Choice a live broadcast Across America 5 p.m. In the west which would have made it about 8 p.m. Eastern time meant that there was no time to warn the West Palm about what was to come a wave of Hysteria that swept across United States at night before Halloween has risked realistic radio dramatization reached all the way to Portland, Oregon 2500 miles from the scene of the fictional Invasion. The telephone switchboard of The Oregonian newspaper in Portland was swamped by hundreds of excited dog. As people rushed into the business office of the newspaper demanding information hundreds of calls were made to the Portland Police most wanting to know what protection the city could off and what place might be safe in the event that wholesale destruction spread to the Pacific coast doctors reported cases of women fainting a mandamus reported to a loaded his family into a car and driven frantically through the streets of Portland searching for a Haven of Refuge Portland officers or the Western Union Telegraph company were jammed with person seeking to send off of grams to relatives in the East inquiring as to their safety just as an announcer was choked off by poisonous gas in what he had said might be the last broadcast ever made the town plunged Into Darkness would be the town of War again Portland, Oregon.

That was Nineteen thirty-eight Americans today are much more Savvy and have many more ways of or receiving news other than radio.

I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter and Matt this week as you know, I'm in Lisbon Portugal this week and starting November. I actually the dish network no longer is carrying HBO. And this is the. First time that this has happened with HBO at anyone that carries HBO that they're at these fights are quite commonplace. Among the broadcast networks or cable networks, they want more money from places that carrot that distribute their content for the privilege of of carrying their content. But this is the first time that HBO has been in a fight that got to this level and significantly the first time that this kind of fight has come to this point since AT and T acquired the Time Warner assets, which includes HBO, and this is a sort of thing that you know, when you look at a big acquisition AT and T buying Time Warner with Warner Brothers and HBO this that and the other an HBO was the crown jewel there. Of course, was a fear that you know, they would strangle the competition or crush the people who have to do business with them. And I guess an argument could be made here. They're doing it. Yeah. I mean dish network competes with direct TV in the satellite business. Direct TV is owned by eighteen. Tea, and now AT and T has this asset HBO that lo and behold, it has been yanked off of dish, which conceivably could make people switch from dish to direct TV. Now, I think it's a little bit more complicated than that in. What you saw from Richard player the of HBO he put out a statement today. Saying no dish took this off dish HBO was ready to do a deal and dish essentially balked and caused them to go dark and the economics. Here are interesting because dish is a lower cost provider. Their whole marketing campaign is we cost less than the big boys like direct TV. So it is possible that they tried to extract some kind of a price concession and HBO emboldened by this new AT and T relationships said, no, you gotta you gotta pay up, but even the specter of AT and T. Acting improperly may impact this appeal which is going on right now. The Justice department is asking a pellet panel to revisit this merger. And the fact that this carriage dispute is going on is probably not good for eighteen in that merger appeal. I mean, it's not technically legal issue. That was addressed when the Justice department tried to block AT and T from buying Time Warner this was not the basis of the argument, they made maybe it should have been. But but notwithstanding the fact that that is not what is at issue that the superior court panel is reviewing it would still get into the heads of someone who reads a business page of a newspaper. A look what's happening AT and T is being a big bad owner of this property. There is a general skepticism. I think towards these companies, and we all kind of assume they're doing the worst thing they could possibly do for the market in their customers that they could get away with. But you know, there are two sides to this and dish has. Long history of getting into carriage fights with various channel companies networks, they are cheap and they're famously cheap. Charlie Ergen who runs dish has been a very controversial si yo, and he's not afraid to pull content. He pulled the Univision channel from dish. When they couldn't reach a deal, and that still is not on the dish network. So there's a lot of players here. That's Mandela knee aditorial director of the Hollywood reporter.

KCRW's Hollywood Breakdown

Netflix cracks a window

"KCRW sponsors include net. Flicks presenting the love me when I'm dead chronicling the last years of Orson Welles life the genius behind citizen. Kane. It's wildly entertaining while full of nuance and depth directed by Morgan Neville, only on net. Flicks. November second I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter, and Matt Finally I mean, we sort of expected this for a while but net flicks finally finally is cracking after trying to get into the awards race in a real way for a while. Now, they really want this, and they have in a very I think serious contender in quirones Roma, which is a black and white film very much in art house film. I would save as having seen it very much a film, ironically that you would wanna see on a big screen. You cannot make a movie with Cuaron if you don't bend or an artist like Koran if you don't somewhat bend to his will. So netflix. Has said they will let this movie run exclusively in theaters some theaters for awhile, it's a concession and their couple of other films in this category. But let's focus on the big one for now couple of other films in this category. They're going to allow this with it's a concession. I'm not sure that it's a really fabulous concession. Well. It is a big deal that Netflix, which has steadfastly stuck to this party line that we are releasing movies on Netflix worldwide the same day that we're putting them in a few theaters. That's the key here. They're moving three movies from the exclusive day and date on Netflix to invaders for about two or three weeks in advance and a few theaters. And the message here is that Netflix wants to play ball with elite talent and get into that Oscar race, which they have been unable to do. And is this going to make a difference? I don't know. But it is a big concession from. Netflix to go away from what they? I have said is their model all on net flicks to giving this the window which will allow those audiences to see it in theaters. I'll tell you what I think I think that net. Flicks made such a fetish of this. And I understand they were launching something, but movies are movies, in some cases. It really does matter as I said Romans one of them, I think that they made such a stink about this that certain theaters don't want anything to do with running their movies. They still don't want that relationship. And I also think this is a small number of theaters fifty around the world, I think is the number, and I'm just guessing you've got an otter like Koran and he's not the only one that is going to seem like not enough. Now, you could say, you know, this will be was made without Netflix money and net flicks, then acquired it in in a way made it possible for the world to see it. And you could say many people do it's better to be seen on screens. You know, more people will see it this way. However, I suspect that not only will the theater is still largely shunned it, but an artist like. Warren will say, you know, this really is not enough. And next time. I'm not doing it. Well, not if he wins best picture, which is gonna pour millions of dollars into campaign to win him best picture, and they believe that by putting it in theaters in New York and Los Angeles and couple of other big cities. They will have a better shot at winning best picture for this guy. And you know, it's it's the push pull it's a huge global audience that Netflix can provide. But they don't give you that theatrical push that many filmmakers want, and to me, the most interesting thing here is Netflix is drawing a line. They're saying these three movies are worthy of the releases. But if I'm a filmmaker that has a movie at Netflix, I say to my agent, where's my theatrical release where why am I not getting what L fonds Roan or the Coen brothers or the Sandra Bullock movie? They're putting in theaters why why am I not getting that? So you're going to see I think people like Guillermo del Toro who has a movie project. Net flicks. Michael bay whose movies are gigantic transam erred. But but Michael bay is used to getting his transformers movies in four thousand riders on opening weekend in the US, and he's gonna make net looks movies. You know, you don't think Michael Bay's going to ask for the window, and yeah, I do actually. And I think that if it does win. Yes. Maybe he will be satisfied, but it may not win because net flicks.
