"So yeah i mean. I was doing groucho and are you are sure sure. And and and the like you know and First impression i ever did. I guess was the high school football coach who had a very distinctive walk and meaner and Turns out he was not a fan. I found out an unfortunate way as i was gathered with some friends school pals in the quad at lunch and someone came up from behind me and got me into a headlock and It was the coach. Any whispered in my ear. I heard about it and i don't think it's funny. I remember as i was passing out. I thought i could probably learn how to do marlon brando. Much safer yeah. What are the chances that fed folks in get the headline and and the funny thing is like every single impression is basically was and if your waiter was james cagney might go why this. Yeah i even tried to personalise all of that from the very beginning which then eventually became stories of working with these people so like when i would tell a story of working on a few good men i would tell where my mom came to visit the set and ended up hitting on jack. Nicholson and then. I would impersonate. Nicholson within the story. So but even from the beginning. I told a to story. When i was a waiter and the cook would screw up the order for most waiters. That's a nightmare. There goes your tip get for me was a golden opportunity to launch and tune impression. Be it peter. Fog out geez. I'm sorry could you ask for rice. Why do you have a baked potato. This makes no sense and and the tip went through the roof. So when i started doing impressions i would draw from personal experiences when i found times to hide behind voices. That helped me you life. And i should tell the audience who isn't seeing you. Yeah that you're doing. An imitation also appeared false glass. That's the part. Yeah so he had a. He was very open about having glass. I was in a car accident when he was three years old and had a glass eye from the age of three. And so when i started doing it and i saw him tell stories about that on the tonight show. I thought well. I i should train my figure out how to move just one. I and i saw bancroft in a close up. Shot in a mel brooks film. Her husband Oh it's an silent movie. Yeah where she. She crosses her eyes and then on crosses them and crosses them and and she moves one. I could do it again on the zoom and your audience won't see it so i thought if i could just isolate one half of that. Then it'll be just one. I moving back and forth and i sorta figured it out. Yeah i remember one of the stories. Peter falk told he was playing literally at age. Twelve slid into second base. The called him out a took out zayn handed it to him and said you clearly need this more than i do and i thought that's the hip is twelve year old. That's ever lived. So when i when yeah so it it. It became a great thrill. When i did do the tonight show to sit next to the king carson and do appear fault because i knew he loved peter falk and i took advantage of that and he flipped out at the one i moving. That was the thing that completely fritz. Great and then. He asked me to teach them how to do it the next time on. And then here's a brilliant about carson. That i'm convinced. He had the same Something similar with a lot of the gas. So your backstage. You're about to go on. You hear the band playing down and and from commercial and you hear johnny introduce you you know. It's one of the most nerve wracking. Six minutes of your entire life. Let alone that year. And every time after that second appearance when i taught him how to do the peter falk guy and the announcement please welcome. He's in front of the show. He's been on before actor comedian. Kevin pollack and i would come out and wave dog and sit but there was a three seconds or less where you would pass in front of him. He would stand thrown waiting futile arrive. And you would as you're in the motion of sitting to his right. You would pass in front of him with your back to the audience for a nanosecond to shake his hand. What have you but in that nanosecond religiously. After the second appearance for another twelve doesn't have he would lean over move. One i can say excuse me. I hate the body. The genius of that is in the most nerve wracking six minutes of the year. We have an inside joke. Have a seat you know that. Sort of calming effect of that No matter how. You nervous or in my head. I might have been the moment he did that. It was oh. I belong here and as i'm sitting down. This is all playing out right. Every time. And i i know he must have had something like that with guests that he that he liked. He had that ability to put people at his own. And then fox you run into him in a supermarket one day and rouse in los angeles about six months after after that first of that that appearance rather where i i did the peter falk. Johnny flipped out i did. I was accosted by peter falk in the produce section and he is literally stopped me and said how do you do that with your. I know me i understand. But how do you do. He was tickled and also genuinely curious. He wanted me to teach him at do very surreal. And we we. We were friendly in the sense. That any time i would see him thereafter.

"Of JFK and all of that. Maja Seymour Hersh's book Cash. What was the name of that head Camelot in the title, But boy that that was a book that just kind of ripped the Ripped the facade of what Camelot was all about during those Kennedy years of 1000 days, and before and even after just ripped the facade of that off. Was it called the end of Camelot? I think Seymour Hersh. So that's that's an excellent book, too. If you're interested Sinatra, there's a lot of Sinatra their book about Kennedy, obviously, but still pretty interesting. All right, so Joey Bishop Joey Bishop, He was a member of one of the most iconic show business acts of all time. You know the Rat Pack Vegas Sands Hotel. He played the top night clubs of the day. East Coast West Coast, Chicago, Joey Bishop had his own network television sitcom he hosted the Tonight Show more than 200. Times Guest hosted More than 200 times. He was a star of his own late night talk show that ran for several years, apparently pretty good in that role. He also hosted the Emmys multiple times appear to more than a dozen feature films as a star. Countless TV shows as a guest star. And apparently according to our next guest, apparently one of the most hated men in show business. Let's welcome the author of This brand new book, which I recommend Richard Alerts minutes here. The book is Deconstructing the Rat Pack. Joey, the Mob and the Summit, Richard. Welcome to Double The L, Sir. How are you? Well, I appreciate how are you? I'm doing very well. Thank you Aside, mentioned my listers. And they know this from listening to me. I'm a big Frank Sinatra fan. I like Dean. I think Sandy was immensely talented, but I never understood Joey Bishop's participation. And I wonder what they all happen to Joey Bishop. He just dropped off the scene now with this book. You can tell us. Why apparently, number one. The Ram pack wasn't four guys. I'd love to get together and party with each other. It was some sort of market employed by the Sands Hotel. Correct. Yes, it's what the two things there are five members, and the reason they got together was if the Franks natural 9% of the Sands Hotel and the Al Freedman, who was the PR guy? And the guys behind it. Who really mobsters. Guys like motel, It's and Carol Cohn and Maxie Diamonds. They all wanted to make put Vegas of the master of natural way. No. Vegas was a visitation place from Los Angeles, and they wanted to put it in New York and Chicago and Miami. They wanted to draw people from there. So what they did was they came up with a plan. Both Franks in Apsara and Frank was working with deed Mark in the movie called some Some Broad. Ain't Sammy Davis was just getting back to health. He had lost his eye and say that just that crank it helps them nursing back to health. Joey was the opening act for Frank Sinatra. And the reason the reason he was the opening act and I've heard this musicians I knew a couple guys who play the Sinatra on and off for years is that he wouldn't upstage Frank. He was a perfect opening act like a glass of milk. Eggs. That's exactly if you know he he didn't want to Don Rickles or a second green or Buddy Hackett the suck the air out, so he just warmed it up perfectly. Frank walked out. The crowd is ready for him and Joey did the best great job. From fruits of habitability mansion. Both of frown Prince is real cynical, Real sarcastic. The frown Prince. How many years did you know Joey Bishop? No, probably close to 20 years. Did you like him personally? Because it's not a flattering book. It's Ah, you know, it's a kind of a scathing book on Joey Bishop. Was he a buddy of yours? He well, he was a Philly street guys. He came from South Philly Tough Street guy worked in Chicago. A lot of the shape of reading a lot of clubs. But Joey was he had a warm up to him. He he had a feeling that he was the the spoke the blue for the ransacked and unfortunately Joey did realize that he was with Frank Sinatra. Indeed, Mark insanely. It was junior and all the films Joey looked up, You know, you like to be a part of it. And the great thing for Joey Woz. It rubbed off. Joey got his own situation. Comedy was all talk show He was big for 10 years because He was part of this wreck back. And why did he get? Why did Frank sour on him? Because obviously, when Frank was done with Joey Bishop, that was it kaput. You know, you never bite the hand that feeds you and Frank. You know what, Frank? That no matter on one time, tell me if you have a friend Frank as a friend. You don't need another friend and Joey was asked by Frank to fill in forever at the Cal Leave a lodge that Franco part of Frank. It started just kids after the in a lot of personal problems, and he asked, going to fill in for for a gig at the county of majority of mall. These demands I want 50,000 for played really 50,000 for the appearance. I want a private plane and I want this and freaks that's so angry cause here's all he did for Joey and put over the place to make him a superstar. And Joey did that woman and the trace really resented it. Not showing off. And Joe you're supposed to play Guy gives Border Robert the seven hoods. Yeah. Peter Falk at that party was possible it out. Did you wrote a book about Peter Falk? Don't you? I did. I wrote Peter Falk slates. That guy. Thank you. For Peter Falk was such a great actor. Frank loved them. And Frank Frank from Peter told me a story that Frank he went to Frank once and he said, I have He's just I look, I can't do it. Rob is the seventh foods like hired to say it all that breaks and let me see. Let me see your script. You looked at the script. He ripped out the three pages ago night after saying Oh, you mentioned the mob in the title. Deconstructing the Rat Pack. Joey Bishop, The mob and the summit. This is Richard Landsman. How does the mob play? I know about Giancana, Sinatra, the Villa Denise. Most people Chicago understand the connection, but it was the mob essentially who bestowed Frank Sinatra 7% of the Sands. Well, he got 9% and mobile Gymkhana was part of it. But it was from the East Coast with Meyer Lansky and had lucky Luciano and then on the West Coast, there was Mickey Cone. They all had cost money. If Theo Vegas and they'll have their piece of different hotels, so they wanted they want. They decided they needed entertainers We could bring in the road gamblers..

NOPE end. The direction is is apparent. You can tell that Spielberg has chops even though it's very one of the very first things he directed. Let's start with Colombo himself because Peter Falk draft blueprint for murder I think he only did one. That's the only one This I was surprised by didn't know this Nicholas Cola Santo coach from cheers. Yeah. What he did the Johnny cash episode. Corrected. That, and he also directed the attitude in black the the of episode that oh I thought Cavities directed that Oh. Well, I have a mind. Yeah. I think you're you must be right maybe directed something else it's possible I didn't have cassidy's as director maybe on media I made that up. Yeah no Nicholas close onto was a TV director but apparently drafted a ton of things mccloud ironside chips Sudan's we say that Risky Notch Ben, Gazzara share. How's that? For a weird crossover Ben bizarro directed two episodes troubled waters and a friend indeed both very good did. Ben Gazzara do. Heavy.

He's so involved not only portraying the killer in many many episodes but directing five episodes over twenty five years is pretty impressive Leo. Penn. father of Sean and Christopher Pen and musician Michael Penn Yeah. Very famous director he directed three episodes of Columbo. Including, what to me is the most over the top episode which I believe me I don't say that lightly but any old port in a storm is Donald pleasants episode where he's one half of a brotherly duo that owns a vineyard. And it's show unbelievably ridiculous. The Heights to which Donald pleasants himself to go as an actor is really something to marvel at and be impressed by is a good episode. It's.

You can't break that by then having Mrs Colombo Have Series I don't that doesn't work that. That is outside the universe for me of what makes this series special and it should eat her breaks. The Spanish. Should be said that this missed the Mrs Colombo I think maybe nine, hundred, ninety, one or nineteen, eighty, two on NBC.

"You're absolutely right Nathaniel also touched on as we talk about the audience the way cavities chooses, and I definitely tapped into this early as well. All the way he chooses to for the most part shoot all of the scenes of the play itself. Any performances on the stage for the most part we see from this remove the crowd. Dr. Dart's fair. Yeah, we'll start there and will occasionally cut in. But where we really get into the close ups or get closer to the performance is in the rehearsal process. And for me, it gets at this idea that once that production starts, and that fourth wall goes up once there is an audience there. There is this distance. There is this remove and we view are kept there as well. And this whole idea that wants that walls there somehow we're all kind of protected the performers on the stage. She'd know exactly what they're doing. And it's going to follow a certain script. And when it doesn't how that does change everything for the people in their real lives, but also for the people on stage and then for us as we're in this weird mix as viewers going what actually is going on. And sometimes cavities plays with that. Because we hear people talking about how much they love the play. They love what's happening. Even though they're not actually on script at all. It's kind of a train wreck. Or maybe not kind of it is a train wreck. Yeah. And yet people. They are having their own kind of personal experience with it. And you mentioned it her relationship to Nancy. I'm going to dive into it more with my choice for one of our awards. But there are a lot of second women in this play in some ways, you could say the playwright is a second woman in terms of the consideration. It's the name of lay right Myrtle. It's the name of the play. We have the second woman in the form of the wife of Ben Gonzaga's director character who by the way has had a second woman as well as he recently got out of an affair Nancy is a second woman. But also in the way, she does absolutely represent the younger version of Rowland's. That's an additional woman being thrown into the mix. So there are all these blurred lines between the real world. What we see of it? And this fantasy world of the stage in the play. And did you notice the even her room this hotel? They're all staying she's the star. So she gets to go up to the law, and I was always keenly aware because of cavities camera and the way he shoots that space of how much it fell. Just like a set or just another stage. So even when she's behind closed doors or someone else's up there, and it's supposed to be a personal private moment. And she is no longer on the stage performing it still feels like she is it's all hardwood floors. It's expansive. I think even if you look the same red bar or similar bar. That's on the stage is up in her room. How could she find any relief up there? There is no separation between her as Myrtle, Gordon and her as the character. She's trying to play in these two worlds the world onstage in off. Well, the dialogue among all those different psyches that Rowland's is having and lets us be a part of is why this performance is so striking. I think and I I wanna point two one moment where we see those psyches kind of split apart. And it's in the first third probably when she's in the dressing room. Don't do it the mirrors. Don't do it. Okay. Can I can? I can I have you. Just hold off. Okay. We'll we'll get into it. Then. Awards. We we definitely need to talk about that. Okay. So there is going to be more opening night talk here as we transition into our awards. We're calling them the blue hats name that I discussed on last week show occurred to me after hearing Peter Falk talk about that wonderful blue hat. He wears in a woman under the influence a gift that was given to him by John cavities, just before they started rolling. And it really did influences entire performance just seemed in keeping with this marathon and cavities approach to filmmaking. We have as usual five categories. Best supporting performance best lead performance, our favorite Kesse, veggies moment, which.

"There was a Broadway musical that was in development. A lot of it was written. It never happened. Apparently royalty disputes. He has just gone to Disney theatrical apparently trying to do it again. There's a new version. Yes. And I think that that's a fair way to this approach it as a musical because it does seem very adaptable as musical the me. And that would not step on what exists here there is beautiful music in this movie written by Mark Knopfler, one of my wishes for this. I wish they would release a version where they took Knopfler score and record it with the proper orchestra instead of a sin, which was I guess exciting at the time. But it's it just feels a little well, then diminishes the score. And also just it's wrong that place. Doesn't have since you know, it just so weird. It's that's makes me sad. I'm sorry. I'm gonna agree with you. I think the idea of doing a mutual of it make sense because it feels like these characters wanted saying, so they're expressing such kind of simple true ideas that like those feel like songs, and that's the way to get into these characters heads. I curious whether they keep the framing device of the grandfather and son, I don't think you necessarily need it in the stage version, but you can bet they do. I bet they do. I mean, it's so and also the last line why in God's name rob Reiner didn't just fade out on Peter Falk after he says as you wish why does he then go back and have them to walk out of the room and close the door and leave Fred savage there. So weirdest choice. Anyway, we can find Robert Nasscom. Let's yeah. But but that last line is the whole raise on of this thing, which is you just learned that. Love is a service that we do for others. That's what this whole story was about and me being here with you was my service to you. I love you. And you need that last line. Because that to me explain why we went through the exercise William Goldman, effectively convinced I think everybody that reading storytelling story to somebody is in its own way and active service in an act of love, which is why he did it for his own kids. It is brilliant in its simplicity and going to have to watch it for the one thousand and one time clearly let US Open it up system questions. So we have to stands into the aisle, if people have questions or things comments, they wanna share I guess, we'll allow comments this sort of special automated did not make this move. If people have other options, they wanna share as well, that's that's cool too. But we'll sort of get your thoughts on this. We'll start with user. Hey, they're just from the last few things guys were saying about the synth tracks, and the the closing the door at the end it occurs to me. We're not really seeing the story. That's on the paper. We're seeing what Fred savage seeing. And we just saw him. We we open on him playing the video game with the sense track. And it kinda matches with what he might be imagining couldn't feel it closes at the end of the movie to the door closing Tim going to sleep. We're not really following the book, we're following Fred savage in his head. That makes sense. I mean, I always identify with the old ju so. That's probably where my you're actually raising good point, which basically who's POV is that host from from the point of view, or the I own slaughter was from the grandfather's point of view. Personally. I could make a good argument either way. But I think those choice of shots really matters here. And so it's an argument against the Rams point of view. He walks into the scene. So yes, but there are moments where Fred savage is shocked and even says way way, wait like you said no kissing which makes me think that he isn't watching the movie. What's going to turn it into a question? The question beat you say identify with the Jew now. But the first time you all do Frank has always been I was I was born eighty. Hi, so weird. Seeing your guys faces move by your voice weird for us..

"If we just came back, and it was exactly the same situation wouldn't feel like you're moving forward or just feel like yours repeating old sane Peter Faulk. Right. I mean, the perfect casting because he's literally Colombo in his own grandson. You know? Okay. You know what? Taking this very personally. No. Right. So Fred savage. Does a fantastic job playing like regular. I think he's a very regular kid there. They didn't push it at all kids. Do get annoyed with that. They don't want hear about at least the in this case, you know, nineteen eighty-seven lovely gender stereotype of boy that doesn't mean hear about kissing. But I remember my son didn't wanna hear, you know, kissing stories. And so that all felt very true. But Peter Falk is playing a long con with this kit repeatedly, you know, told you. Yes, very good. Shut up wonderful that very smart. So let's go into the actual story is being told. And so we really rush through the Senate very quickly, and it's the pricing. Even just watching tonight to recognize how little backstory, we know about our are central characters buttercup, guess she has a family. We'd never see them lives on loan to cabinet. I guess she makes fun of this farmer. Boy, it's just the best part. Yeah. Right. So actually, no one in this entire movie has a real. Character now. No one they it's just nice farm. Boy. Nice slightly noble girl. A very smart Italian very big green Lander very skilled Spaniard, and then the prince just dick, right, but very very, proficient. Dick, you watch. Like, oh, he's somehow really good all these things. He's an amazing jacker. And so you think there's gonna be some there. It was great dual. Yes. And somehow he can smell the powder. That's the best. Yeah. Sure. So great, but the performances are fantastic. And without great performances feel that the artists these little paper dolls moving throughout the story. And yet we so quickly set up who buttercup is the nature of the stakes of the movie are which is basically this is the couple and we want this couple to be together. That's the whole storyline. You really gonna get through sonata? What happens is the two of them. But also surprising and sort of frustrating. If you've read a bunch of screen writing books is your protagonist your heroes are not on screen time and often don't they're not really they don't have a lot of agency in their story. Correct. Because they're in a story. Right. So you can see why Goldman felt so liberated by the technique of imagining that he's only telling you parts of story because he can literally just not do the stuff that is really annoy. Knowing for us to do to make people believe that what they're watching is real. He doesn't have to worry about that. And so in a weird way the protagonist. I was think of the protagonist of this movie in the in the true sense of someone that has to make a choice is Fred savage because those are the only two people in the movie on the mom. Yeah. But demaim really essential character. Without that. Also, you notice to watch the movie like it starts the long shot of a baseball game being played on a video which thrills me. Yeah. Of course. I mean, it does anchor a place in time. But it didn't even need to be because it was contemporary. It was really strange thing. You're watching stranger things and they're trying to say, oh, no, no. Where this. Well. They didn't know they thought that the way it was always going to be that's fair. I thought baseball games always look like that. But I guess they were probably trying to say look kids don't read. That's true. They don't continues to apply. It does so back to buttercup and back to her story. So let's track the movie through from what we know of buttercup. So somehow she goes from the. Farmhouse? She believes that Wesley his died. And then suddenly she's getting married to the king. We don't know why it's it's been years. It's been years. She's a Princess now for reason because he had the right to choose his own bride so one imagines that he wrote through the countryside. I want you. Yeah. That was boo lady scare the hell alone..

"William Goldman was just telling stories to his daughters, his young daughters, and these were kind of the stories he was telling them, he invented a Princess named buttercup, and this young farmland that she was mean to a farm boy named Wesley and the invented the RO US's and the idea of six fingered man, all these giant in swordsman, these airy broad youngin archetypes very much fairytale thing. And when I love about the way, he talks about the creation of this is that when he decided to make it into a book, he was really struggling I imagine because he's willing Goldman. And he's sitting there thinking, I know how a book should go. There's all this stuff that have to do to make sense of this. And and he said the thing that broke it open for him was coming up at the idea that he's not writing it at all that somebody named s Morgenstern is written it and that s Morgenstern book is out of print, and no one can find it. And so what he's done is essentially put together an abridged version this. Story is only the best parts, and I love that. Because I think that ties in ultima to what I love most about this movie, which is that it is a movie about storytelling itself as an act of love as part of the conceit is that he heard the story as a kid, and that he really went back and found actual book realize it was actually like, you know, a big political tract and was completely different than Harry members who was using his childhood memory of the way, he wished the story actually really went. I actually had that that real experience when my kids were young. I was like, you know, what I'm going to read you a book tonight, and it's one of my favorite books from childhood. You're gonna love this. It's called a wrinkle in time. Yeah. It started reading wrinkled time. And I'm like. Yeah. So I worked it's just a teen romance. When does the yeah. All the cool stuff in the last twelve pages. Yeah. And I forgot. Yeah. And you realize that many things that the MRs do so much of the work for the protagonist. And it's frustrating. How to patient was a hard movie to adopt. I tried it our. So let's talk about the frame story because this is actually part of the conceit. So William golden had been tons story to his daughters and conceit in the book is that, you know, his father had told it to him in this movie version, and I don't know if it was always this way in the scripts, but we have the Peter fall. The grandfather cares. You're telling the story to his grandson who sick. It's a pretty simple setup. But we come back to it a lot. And so the frame story gets us a lot. Let's talk about why you do it and sort of what's helpful about it. Well, they're letting you know right off the bat that the story that you're seeing the story usually when we tell a story on screen we want people to forget that it's a story pretty quickly. Here. They never let you forget. And in doing so they immediately excuse a lot of things that I think had they not done. You would have said this is very true love it's over the top. It's over the top for a reason, everything if you think about it every emotion has pushed beyond to the edge. So the true love is the truest of love right in the villains in the most. Hateful villains. The kiss at the end of all the top five kisses of all time and this one puts to shame. So everything is taken to its extreme. Because it's meant to be a fairytale. And the actual story is the story of a grandfather and his son. Even though there's these little tiny bits with Peter Falk, and Fred savage to me, that's the movie. So I was the frame story. Let's jump forward. Let's contextualized things. It lets us. Fill in details. He wouldn't have otherwise known on sort of skip past the boring parts. Let's talk about this frame storage is really quickly in terms of regression of relationship between Peter Falk and the Fred savage character because it's very. Simple. That's really well sketched. And every time we come back those things there needs to be progress..

Then he reworked the edit, and he would also shoot so many different versions that sometimes there's different takes of allegedly like five different versions of husbands floating around.
