That that's been my that's been the wonderful part of my career is having been what we called a character. Actress wanted to to hit as many Places as i could in life and to be able to bring those characters to the audience's attention and i've had every wonderful opportunity that you could possibly imagine when you stop and think about how my career has gone from one thing to another thing to the end with me. It was always trying something to learn to be a musical comedy. Actress for instance and going to broadway and playing some wonderful parts there and along with doing murder she wrote which of course prevails to this day and is known all over the world which is a lovely thing.

And i said Is it primarily from television for murder she wrote and that seemed to be the consensus but then as we ran this this five minute montage which included that wonderful video. You and george hearn. Were able to sweeney todd but which immortalizes performances and then there was you on television special a lovely gown standing in front of an orchestra singing beauty and the beast and midway through it dissolved to the actual cartoon and there was like the verbal equivalent of a wave from those sporting events across my audience.

And there were no microphones in those days. Nineteen twenties thirties. And i thank goodness i. I got my voice from him and left me. It's one of the things.

Because two days ago you became for the second time a great grandmother sad what a joy and what a thrill to be a great grandmother to another little young little boy. We haven't got a name for him yet. His his parents haven't decided what they're going to call him. So i can try call but my my first great grandson is called william and he's back east. Dad mom lived there And new york city. And i've talked after that's okay. They come out and visit his parents from time to time. So i get to see him and i go back east from time to time to Well anyway congratulations wonderful milestone. Very proud as you should be. We want to ask you about your youth because we're fascinated with the story of and your brothers migrating from from england to to the us. Well i canada. I guess if i read it correctly well shortly just for short time. Yes we we landed in canada because we came by boat and I guess we Where would we have landed. Let me see Well anyway we landed in canada and then we got on the train and we came by train to new york city and We didn't stay in canada at that time. We came right on down to manhattan and where we were met by. My mother's first husband wasn't that nice. He met us at the train station. A terms realization in new york city and Thank goodness and took us to the outgun queen hotel. i don't know whether you remember the al gone. Just gone well. it was legendary. And i guess it's A little passe these days but in those days it was sort of seattle hotel that people who came to new york from britain or france or wherever they would always go and stay at the al gone. So that was my introduction. To new york was coming into that hotel. And of course i up with the almost immediately not quite immediately because i went to drama school in new york city for three years and then from there to be clear you were fifteen one. He's a strip. Yes and you came with your twin brothers. I came with my twin brothers. Edgar and bruce and my my lovely lovely mom Moina lansbury a morning. Macgill was her stage. Name name ashley and But she brought us here at. It was a thrill because i was only through a fluke that we got to come to america. Actually as evacuees we were what it called evacuees and we came along with a lot of many many young children who were sent to america by their parents to get away from the bombings of london had already experienced some of those bombings. And no we. We did not. We were lucky enough that we got out although liverpool which was the city that we left from a by boat Took a train up to liverpool. And then we got on this boat The duchess of athol and that liverpool was bombed literally as as we were not as we were pulling out. We were at sea but it was bombed that at night So it it was really a fortunate thing that we've got on board. That ship came to america. I hadn't realized how long you've lived here. And how long. You've been a citizen. Which in and of itself is wild. That i think if anybody described this a british actress and of course will always be british but my goodness. You've been an american for very long time. Yes but i. I manage to sort of split apart of my time i. I went back to britain trying to think what year it was And i did several plays and musicals. I did gypsy originally in london. That was where we did. Our first production you know and brought that production back to new york. So i've i've played both sides of the pond as we were kids justify in the kitchen as far as and teapots and such so as far as i'm concerned you're english test. Sure if they're mcvitie's in the kitchen you know things are well you see here came. This came out of our irish house actually and a lot of the furniture. Yeah everything that. You're looking at accept a table but buying this table but You know. Peter my husband. And i who peter who died m and a number of years ago We loved we love being in england put. We made our. We made our careers in america. We've any did and and the other interesting thing is you tended to play older. Yes that helped whitley. Because i haven't managed to hang in longer than some people might have done. Because i had i was what they called a character actress and i you know playing older was fun and always a challenge To to do that and it it stood me in good status. They say able to characterize myself older than i actually was. You played elvis's mother. That feels like a bit of a stretch but all right hollywood whatever they want you know. Well yes exactly. I only a few years older than elvis. And now you're gonna lip the lip. Yeah close i see now i believe it. Oh what does she mean behind the generation. I i see facial gesture you might wanna study up. It could come up in a future project. you never know. Elvis emotion never a bad thing to have thought of that. Don't get me thinking about that. i'm not. I might do it. You stayed in new york for a couple of years yes absolutely We were in new york probably for about four years and we lived out of the city. I lived with a family in the city. When i went to drama school but i was there for two years at drama school and left new york because my mom Got a job on a tour of very famous show called tonight at eight thirty cower count and she travelled out she they were going to go right across america through canada and then down to los angeles and it was thanks to her doing that tour. That brought me out to the to the west coast. Otherwise i would have stayed in new york and So that that was the beginning of a whole new life. Now i would imagine it is or was last. Did that upset you that upheaval and moving again and reinventing your life and settling truthfully. We had been really pretty. Transient even join those early years. In new york We were staying with people. I lived with a family in the city because it was a shorter commute for me to go back and forth to the school and They lived up on Higher fifth avenue. I used to walk to school every day. 'cause we didn't have any money at all you know. I mean. we really live tom very little. But people took care of us. The family put The perkins family took care of me. They let me stay in the house. Their town townhouse in manhattan. And i was able to go to school every day and on the weekends. I'd go back to my mom who was out on lake mayo. Pack is a very nice place out of the city and my brothers were there and they went local school so it was an interesting introduction to life in america for english. Kid which is what i was. I can't imagine being transported or are being deposited in new york city for anybody. And i'm a native new yorker. Ooh but you've been living this life in england and with your family and you take this dramatic boat. Ride and crossings are not eat. That's the other crossings are not easy. They're notorious for not being easy well in our case You know we were under supervision by destroy us. We had a british destroyers on each side of the boat traveling across the atlantic ocean and I think i mentioned earlier. That that ship that we arrived on was torpedoed on its way back to omar god because they took all. Oh absolutely. I mean things that happened in those days we we took it with a well. It was part of life because there was a war going on you know. And it's it's it's hard to explain to people how one gets into the groove of a of a a war torn world which it was and terrible things were happening. America was not in the war at that town. No not so wasn't too. Yeah forty-one exactly so my goodness what would you remember your first impressions you you'd lived in a major city. You've lived in london So he weren't like just off the farm. Oh no no absolutely and would still. New york is is a unique place. Oh no no question about it My reaction to new york was everything that i had seen in the movies. You know it was the most glamorous exciting kind of Thing that you could possibly imagine for me and i'll never forget passing on the way down one of the big streets Big of the highways passing. Where the what was it called. The world's fair had been in your and there were certain things that were left over from the world's fair and or actually it was still going on now. I stopped to think about it year. Ninety three hundred forty. That's right so this would nine hundred forty so it was kind of coming to an end but i remember going to what was left of it with a young man who is Put in charge of giving us a little kind of tour of new york and That was something to itself. I have yet that. How will i wish. I had been othet fair. That's one of my fantasies. Stephan a time machine and go back and visit that fast. Yes is views of future. The future might be less absolutely wrong but until nineteen thirty nine world's fair stuff a really fear exactly. Yeah yes still still there now. So now you've absorbed being in new york. Is there for little while you're taking classes. Are you taking classes. I had i was taken into a drama school. The they took me on Philosophy was a wonderful thing they did. They gave me a scholarship to come to. The school is handled. No it's no longer there It was called awebber. Webber douglas School of dramatic art and it. Now i beg your pardon. That's the one in. London attended at which i had attended. Yes right so No i must have to say that i've forgotten. I can't think of the name of nerve. Yeah got me hosting all over the place where we're trying to track these air of some of which are present in your mind. Some of which are not well. Suffice to say. I went to a very good drama school in new york city. It was it was situated in A rockefeller center. Wow can you imagine. Yeah and you know i it. It was a great group of people into. I had a good training. They're wonderful yeah but then another move and another upheaval and other readjustment to los angeles. And it's my contention. There are no two places on earth more different than new york and los angeles. Very true absolutely The first thing i remember about los angeles was coming in on the train. I came on the challenger which was a famous old train that came from new york. File chicago to to la. And i remember. The first thing i saw out the windows was on the platform there were geraniums geraniums growing on along. They are obviously planted. And that was my entrance to to la a city of flowers and sunshine and what an entrance that was my mother met me remember and we made our way back to the apartment that she was living in and four of us lived in that that one room apartment. I slept on the kitchen so we started very lean. Lean apartment where was it it It was down in los angeles trying to think of the the address It was downtown. La actually yeah it was. It was down from bullocks wilshire. Union wilshire it was down. We'll show on wilshire. Loa wilshire boulevard. I'd not silverlake but almost as far seven and it was a one room and We all at one time or another stayed in it. I say we all that was me. My twin brothers edgar and bruce and my mother and we we had beds pull up beds. That came out of all. I slept in the kitchen. I always remember one terrible night waking up and being unable to breed and was discovered. Cut the The icebox in the in that kitchen something was wrong with it and the gas that reorient for young freon gas. And i couldn't i couldn't get my breasts and i ended up throwing the window open and Obviously i was saved by my mom who falling apart in in the kitchen so those experiences in life that you never forget. 'em how does a recent emigre who's earning a living wage but not quite a lavish living wage. Working bullocks wilshire n- yet discovered by mgm and put under contract through through a friendship that i had with a with a young man who was also an actor who was from london and who is being Thought of and considered for the role of playing dorien gray. He wasn't that close to it but he had sort of in it he was able to arrange for me to come to mgm studios which were going to make that film and it was through him. That i got to go into this into the studio and to meet the casting director and He took one look at me and said well. This is quite interesting young lady. We're looking for a british actress to play a role in a film called the picture of dorian gray and also another film which is called gaslight and so through that casting director and his understanding of what i actually represented in the way of a good client. He took me to meet the directors and the the writers of both of those films. I sold them within a space of two days and was immediately Given the opportunity to make test for to play. Nancy and gaslight on that was the beginning and then from there. I went Did i did that. Film with a great actors charles boy and ingrid bergman and after that i did the second which was a picture of in gray and that was the beginning and i was put under contract of course by gm studios what they called a seven year. Contract was i was neither. I gotta tell you. That's when i preceeded to do a succession of the worst films. The thoughts the imagine. I wasted at least all deer six years on absolute trash. They didn't really know what to do with me. I was an actress. First and foremost. I really wasn't a a an it girl or any of those things. I was just an actress and they didn't have the pot so they used me as utility actress really paid a whole bunch of roles. I never should have gone nia on the path. That's life nets now. But i've read that you were as a as a girl. He were quite the movie buff. You really enjoyed watching movies. Oh yes yes. I i you you learn from watching movies and Seeing theater and you know this this is this. Is your education as an actor is seeing as much as you possibly can. But then you wound up all of a sudden it seems behind the golden gates at mgm. You were admitted to the kingdom. Yes but it wasn't quite the kingdom that i hoped it would be. Yes i said earlier. I made those two films there at mgm. Great movies both of them. Huge and But then the rest. That seven years as i said earlier was spent you know just playing anything that came up because i could do it because i was a character actress. Now just wasn't a you know a pete. Queen of the peaches are those things that a lot of girls were in those days who got into movies. It came by way of having been i. Didn't i came in as an actress and So i was used as a utility but there were. There were occasional bright moments. Because i love you singing. How'd you like to spoon with me till the clouds roll by. That's true that. Occasionally i would get up to do something i got. And that was that was fun and Those those remain as some of my faves you know. And then and then in the harvey girls you get not only play a villainous say am but was that the first time you're called upon to play american yes i think it was. I think it was. They had to be mean to judy. Garland yes you knew. Everybody was so no it with me for being. Judy was a dear dear friend how we used to travel back and forth in the same limo because we were shooting out in the valley in the boonies. You know With the harvey girls that was that was a good experience. All let's not. Let's not forget national velvet. Yeah yeah right. Those are those Those umbrellas elizabeth. I'm thinking positive now. Yeah yeah that's a positive on the others to no no. No no no. No no those were goodies and that happened within the first four years of my tenure at mgm. Now were you. were you still. You're still a minor for some of that period. Yes of the when i first went to. Mgm i was seventeen and that was considered being a minor. So did you go to the famous. Mgm schoolhouse. i didn't have to. I had to take a test to prove that. I had You know that. I was educated to the point of of I don't know that what they wanted to find out but anyway they decided that i knew a from bulls foot as you could read the lines all in and you became. You stayed friendly with elizabeth taylor. I did absolutely you bet we did. I have to say that her she was really very english. You know curiously enough and From the time she was a little girl. I was older than she was. But we came from the kind of the same route she now and we maintained end. Schipol her all her life. It's lovely to know. Yes absolutely You work. I'm not gonna go through a laundry list of names but Then you did two films on loan. You did a film. I like a lot. I think she'd be better known the private affairs of bellamy for the same director who had directed you in a jar in gray albert lewin and you got to work again with george sanders you have any memories of him are saying you can tell to illuminate something about this strange man who was so good at what he did but professed not to care. Yeah well you you've said it. He was a kind of impenetrable individual you know and My experience with him was very good very solid. I didn't get it I didn't understand him any better than anybody else did. But as he was a very professional actor in fact he was very fascinating. An interesting if you went back to his history and the the things that he played and done made him very Individual conto person. And but as i say we got along you know real actors recognize it in each other and you. You know you pay dues. If you know how to do what you're doing it's an it's accepted by the other professionals around you you you get along with it and we didn't do the silly stuff. A lot of people in hollywood did who weren't trained and weren't real actors are. We didn't have to go through that path of getting to know each other. We just knew that we were it was solid in. There was an implicit respect. Placid implicit respect. I think you could say that. Then you were loaned out to paramount for samson and delilah which you improbably played hetty lamar's older sister. Yeah another magic. It's a fascinating woman. She was. I didn't realize at the time until nobody. Nobody knew. what a sh- mark lady she was and you know how sophisticated A number of things. She was really a brilliant brilliant woman. Not is not necessarily a brilliant actress but she was. okay. I mean she did fine. She was so beautiful but she had the mind and You know know how of somebody that You couldn't imagine she would be you know she's very smart. Damn what are your recollections of. Mr demille directed that phil well. You had to go along with mr demille. I mean you had to expect. Accept the fact that he was eccentric to a degree that was in some ways laughable to anybody who you know was aware of how extraordinary he was in the way he carried on and how he conducted business on the set Cecil b demille. He was a one off but you had to hand it to him he he. He conducted the life on the set. The way he wanted and It it was a rare thing to work for him. And i'm glad i did. Did he direct you at all. Not really now question now. He was more interested in what you are wearing. And how you love them whether you a. He took everything very very seriously. You didn't fool around with sasso to mill you you you kind of You became the character that you were playing and he expected everybody to remain in character. I made this extraordinary. But that's the way it was so if you were clever you just went along with that and and dare i push my luck and ask about victor mature victim. Mature took it all as a huge joke. Yes that's what i've read. Oh yeah absolutely. He you know he was great fun. And you know he was this this fella who nobody looked like vick mature in his in his prime and i was fond of. It was a sweetheart. I really like him a lot when you when you look up. The word hunk. There's a photo of victim that's right one of my very first crushes. I can understand that. Thank thank you yes person yes yes. Indeed and then another unique individual frank capra came to mgm to make state of the union was for his production company but he was housed at mgm for that for that fell. That's too. i'm very fond of that film. And i think you're extraordinary in it. And you're something like twenty. Three playing a katharine graham forties who has lured spencer tracy. Self made industrialist away from his wife catherine hepburn as most twenty three year olds to and. I showed it the night that you came to. Usc at was fascinating. I felt. I watched it at home the day before because i felt i had to put it into context. Explain some of the dated particular things about what was going on. I forty eight explained. That van johnson character was what they used to call a wolf today. He just be behind bars but for for what he thought just for what he saw little on what he said and what he was thinking but and it was a radio was dominant medium for promoting the election and television was just on the horizon. They referred to that in the film et cetera et cetera. But what. I found fascinating. That night was every joke. Capra built into the film especially at the climax. Everyone landed those twenty year olds. No misfires not one. He knew his audience and his audience is still alive and well over. They don't realize that they still are prime fodder for mr captured. Did you have interesting interaction with him. I certainly he was an it fascinating. Mant work for and to work with and You know movie directors in those days had a certain ambience which was very much their own. And i have had the pleasure of working with some of the greats you know over the years but he is an individual had a wonderful quality of ease and certainty and you never questioned anything that he proposed. You know about a scene and you discussed it and you work a together with the other actress to achieve certain moment and he he was great director in respect to the fact that he he worked with the actress to achieve a certain effect in in a scene. A given scene and here we were i you know. As far as i was concerned i was working with royalty. You know with the to lead characters. Casteran and spencer said spencer tracy so i knew all the back story i did i did. I wasn't an ash. If you know what i mean so i understood what was going on and it it was. It was quite a quite something. I always had to play older myself. That also is a problem not a problem. It was a an acting problem for me. I just to maintain sort of Certain seriousness. About what i how. I was presenting myself. Well it's a great character juicy character that you get but they also did in fact pigeonhole you. Yes in plain if not a specific type than just older than you were And they never let you know your age. You could also be intimidating. I think that's a big piece of it because you don't you don't look older than everyone else but in you carry a maturity and and also just a a solid terror so when you watch something like venturi and candidate you're scary You know you're scary and finding out how young you were making those films. That's really i mean again. Can't talk about acting but that it's a lot you have to have this weight. That is not something everybody can do. No i hear what you're saying. You've got to have some back story to play those roles. I didn't but i could act. As if i did. And that was the plus that i had sure which enabled me to play some extraordinary parts. Particularly as you say the manchurian candidate was it and that was the last movie. I made in hollywood Enough it was to this day. I think on heino a lot on the high right right but but you know the the the interesting thing about the manchurian candidate that it wasn't seen for years Oh yes it had. Its first released theatrically. I don't think it was a tremendous success at the time And then for various reasons legal reasons and such ownership rights issues. Well the death of the death at the j. f. k. j. f. k. Cast a pall. And he'd he'd encouraged the making of the move -solutely the first question the astronaut. Who's going to play. You know the mom. It was interesting. Because i didn't know him personally at all and I actually never met. jfk. I wish i had But he knew me as an actress so through sinatra amazing amazing. The names. you're saying it's wild. It's wild to think of them as real people that exist. When you say name like spencer. Tracy katharine hepburn or judy garland or elizabeth taylor. They're all sort of this. They're not real in a way because their iconic and their legendary and all that sorta so it's and we didn't have acquaintance with them right right. No it's not like now people absolutely existed for you. And that's the way it. Victor mature of watched him my entire life to think that he was real. Sorta doesn't You know it's i know i. I had a very rarefied career as a young actress. I really did get to work with and to be around. Some of the most You know economy people you could possibly imagine. And ernie just nate names in the isa today. Yeah and they are to me as well when i look back. And they're no longer here and because of my use. At the time i worked for him. I am still here. Nikon can remember them very very distinctly. Well then i might as well go back and ask one more louis. b. mayer. the great Poobah the grand poobah of whilst the grand poobah and i wish i could remember the name of his private secretary over ida. Covance thank you. Don't ask me what. I had for breakfast this morning. Tell you ida cobra great memory for names. That's all i can say. I would have remembered her name eventually. But i wasn't gonna put suit but Well she sat outside his office at mgm. And boy you had to. You had to you know. Do your little dance to get into seattle. And i did ask to see him at certain times because i was sometimes cast in roles that i didn't wanna play and i remember. I wish i could remember the name of the movie Three musketeers which. I didn't wanna play that yes. I didn't want to play that pot. And i wanted to play lady dewinter. Who is to the main eddie. Who was made on turner and i went to see him and i told him i said why. Won't you let me play eighty two winter. She's a villain. I said i can do that. He showed no no lance. Gonna play lady to what you go to play the role. You're going to be fine and You know but i would go and see him on the patient to try and get him to change his mind but he was only one of the people who made those decisions as you know. That was a whole roster of people who worked at mgm who under him and they were the ones you had to get through and then you finally got to him. Although i always maintained contact with him i just made it my business to do so and it was didn't do any good but at least i tried but we used to play gin rummy. Toge- really stupid things like that. You know well in those days they had these big dinners you know. I was remember when the prince of wales from britain came a one of the royal family. I forget who it was and of course they hold me out key to turn out brit your your people right right right right and they would hold me out and i remember because i used to have to drive myself. You know. i lived in santa. Monica and that was tricky. You know is this long distances. When you've had a couple of drinks which in those days we did and pretty tricky. Now i look back on it. I don't tricky playing cards with your boss. Yeah exactly and i see your hand. No no no no you won. Yeah yes i hope. This doesn't sound like too. Obviously you're foolish a question of it does may culpa Who impressed you. There are people that you obviously like took a liking to. You had friendships with relationships. With but as a fellow actor and as a young actor still you know still growing into yourself. Who impressed you. I wish i could really give you an answer to that question People who i tell you people gene kelly. He impressed me because he not only could do what we all know as a dancer but as a person i felt he was completely his own his own person. You know what i mean. And he brought something that was so fresh and original In the in the way in which he tackled some these great musical films that he was part of in those days. I was impressed by that. I was impressed by him that he impressed me. Because i was always in me. And i didn't really i didn't really practice my own musicology in in film because i was always playing some they're clueless role. Which alright had a song. But didn't really you know it wasn't until i went to broadway and played name for god's sakes that i understood a you know what was expected as as a player that i would it was called upon to produce which is to rivet people out in the audience. You know now not on film but in in you know live on stage and that was a real thing for me was live. Performance performance was so controlled by the cavalryman director. And what ended up in. Your scene was old on in the cutting room. So you really had no control over what you going to achieve as a character but in the theater. Yes you did. Because while sa- curtain went up the stage was your own and you know you could trill disappoint whatever the audience you know. Well maim was such a turning point for you and I remember reading about it at the time I read a. I think a profile view in the new york times. Correct me if i'm wrong. That in the wake of its immediate success. Great reviews a box office smash that your caricature on the wall at sardis suddenly mood from an obscure place to a much more. Visit the place of honor prominent. Yes that's that's broadway for you. That's the lullaby of rome that. Oh gosh yes broadway. Was it many years two of my favorite shows ever mar gypsy and sweeney. Todd oh good and so. I've grown. i grew up watching that recording of you in sweeney. Todd which is. I'm so happy it's so rare that anything like that would happen And i m sad that lennon carry is not there because i would have loved to see him But we listen to it. We listen to the album over and over and over and over again. What i was that. What was doing that show like and you had a really very well known number but a very difficult one not an easy number to do which which number and the timing on that the i want to musical theater school and kids would try to do that. One of the songs and you sort of went good anya all right. It's funny to take on. It took a lot of practice really a lot of practice. And you're not technically a musical. Actress has to learn to do juggle everything under the sun at the same time. And i remember practicing that And i did actually with stephen sondheim first time we did it. We laughed so hard we couldn't he couldn't plan. I couldn't sing that. We because you know white. What's your i mean. It did was so so confusing and so difficult that we just couldn't put it together but we laughed our way through it and finally i got it. We got it. Are you boys. I got it. You know shona that's the nature of the beast. Then once you conquered it. It didn't intimidate you night that we did eight times a week How you did it eight times a week but you did eight times a week. Well it says something about me which could could could be a very boring fact in fact I i realized that certain aspects of my abilities as an artist. Say an artist and actress They're given and if you if you get it you got it you know and it. It's there and you can't get away from it. It's gonna drive you. You've learned it so it's gonna drive you whether you like it or not. And that's how you do repetition over years and you're doing it every night in the theater and you know you can't alter your your performance because it's gonna upset the other people around you so you have to maintain a level of degree of performance every night and every matinee and that's one of the arts of being a performer. In the theater particularly musical theater tell about stubby kaye. Please oh i always loved stubby kaye growing up where stubby kaye household and. Let's go that's okay and I got a surprise my life when i read that he was coming back to broadway. He moved to england. He was coming. Back to broadway for harold prince and the musical about burlesque called grind. And they i think they were in previews. I convinced my boss. That i had to go to new york so i had to interview this man who i love so much from guys and dolls and ladner and other things so i did and i said you know you. You did make up numbers. Now you did like five hundred performances on broadway as nicely nicely johnson and then you took it to london and ran it a year there and then one on the road with it. How did you maintain the you know you're freshness your enthusiasm that looked at me and genuine wonderment. And he said well the guy who pays fifteen bucks for a seat for the fifteen hundreds performance sin tiles of the same performance the guy sawn opening night and you know i was glad there was no pretension to it. It was just a work ethic. I totally understand. And i totally agree. You know if you're a professional at what you do that that goes without saying there's no question about it you wouldn't want to be seen doing anything less than the what is the best you can offer right and You you're reminded of that you can't go out and do less than you know you should be doing and if you do you don't belong in the business as far as i'm concerned do you feel that. I'm having achieved star status in the musical theater. You think you set the bar for the younger people less experienced people in the troop. I would hope that i did. I don't. I can't say for sure. But i i don't know you know all i know is that i always just give it. What i know is required and my best at that moment. That doesn't mean that. I wasn't better at the matinee than i am going to be an evening performance but nevertheless at that stage of the day the audience is gonna get as as good as i can. Do you know what i mean. I never underplay. Or do less than what i feel is do the audience and the role and Anybody who thinks they can walk through a scene or a role. They have no business being in the business. You know And as somebody wrote you've got it or you ain't young boys. I've got it so i'm gonna give you know what i mean. And that's the way it is. Yeah having just quoted mr sondheim. Yeah you were also in one of his rare flops. And which seemed to have everything going for it. You and lee ramic show called. Anyone can whistle and Do you understand why it didn't catch on I can't truthfully. I think the the subject matter was difficult for people to grasp and to get their minds around and He took a chance he he took a cut he may he decided on using a cast that were not who were mostly nonmusical people they were actors I was the only one. Actually i think who had any although it was really the first broadway musical for me right the predates maim exactly. Oh yeah absolutely. And so we. We were all pretty green As far as musical theater was concerned. And i think it was a difficult story to tell and Can't i can't honestly say. I think lee remedy had great terrible vocal problems and we all did Because in those days we didn't wear microphones. Yes and that was one of those things that people forget in that year. We didn't have body makes. We were dependent on those ones hanging around. You know and everybody lost their voices and tricky story. to tell can only imagine. I can only imagine. Yeah it was of the once you did become a broadway star legit and west end stars. Well doing primarily musicals. Did you loose interest in doing films. You've done quite a number over this period but did did really capture your heart yes. That stage really became first and foremost my main interest because i love the the contact with an audience. I think once you've had that audience out there and the immediate response of audiences heady stuff you know If you can make that work and feel that they're your friends and they're supporting you and you loved them. It's hard hard life to give up. You know especially for some of the shows that you've done in by the time you get to rose's turn or something like that where you really just get it. It's not a subtle number. It's not a number where you have to downplay. It is a full-on brassy. Get out there. Shimmy and i've seen you you shimmy like nobody else. You love a good shimmy and things like that. And that as i can't imagine going back i can't imagine then it's it's the immediacy when you can make someone laugh or make them cry and you actually get to see it as opposed to making a movie however long it takes for production and then going to see it in a theater once maybe it. It's very very different. Oh you're absolutely right. I mean this is a tough thing to let go and no longer. Do you know Maybe over a two years of doing something which i did as you know with. What are we talking about. What we saw sweet Well i'm thinking of gypsy. Actually see was a real boy. That really took a lot out of me much more than you know. Different really taught yes for different entirely different because there was so much drama and so much activity and movement and so on and she was out there and screaming her head off you know and and that that that's heavy stuff but if you got it in you and it and it you don't allow it to affect you angie. Which is what i was able to do. I'm to put up that invisible carton between me and the character. I'm gonna play the character. But it's i'm not playing me. You're not supposed to know that. But that's exactly where the dividing line That's what actors have to learn to do. Otherwise you can't play hamlet for instance Every night for six months not going to be asked to. I don't think that say you. Are you have to play for certain amount of time but you leave that role in the theater. You do not take it home if you take it home. You're destroyed because you suddenly become affected beyond. You should as an actor an actor team. You're not playing it as yourself. I also think in terms of how people learn now the idea of being method or the idea of staying in character the whole time with when you do musical or a play because time is moving so quickly if you're filming a movie and you're doing it over six months and And you need to stay in character whether it's an accent or a way you present yourself. That's one thing but with the show. You don't have time for that so if you need to work yourself up for every single scene in a certain way you kinda can't because in one senior crying in the next scene you're getting married in the next scene you're happy and the next senior dead so i don't think that there's Don't think there's time to sort of obsess you kind of have to do it. Oh you're absolutely right. That's why it's called acting and that's why you're called a profession. That's right that's right. Yeah that's right. And if you know. And i i was an actress from the time i was about eight nine years old. I was acting and thanks to my sister who is a five years older than i was. She recognized that fact and she the two of us us to act all over the place and we'd put on shows at time and you know family and we'd have them the floor because we would do really funny silly things and but as i said i was acting all the time but i was rather quiet little little girl. Would you believe it at school. They never knew. I never get. Although i get one thing at school are members got really upset and made the audience laugh as or my friend in my class laugh and i do remember that one time. I don't remember it but people have told me about it so obviously the seed was was growing quietly but definitely in my emotional system. I have to tell. I don't mean to be Dwelling on that night the you were kind of to visit my class at usc. But i have to tell this story. We showed State of the union a played extremely. Well i introduced you came on stage to a great ovation and we sat down and started talking with each other. And then i open it up to the class for questions. And i don't think they really knew what to begin to ask you What a girl way in the back of this auditorium raised your hand said. Could you sing beauty in the beast and i. I don't know how this happened. Angela i swear to you i was about to say that's not fair. It's ten thirty at night. You know. And i shut up and you said well really. I couldn't okay and you sang a couple lines of the song acapella and they lost their place. Went wild and thinking about it afterwards. I realized i think why you did it. You weren't going to disappoint an audience shows you. What a ham i am. Well yes but it also says who you are as a performer. And you're again that term again. Work ethic You know that's that's what a performer does If requested if demanded you will deliver the goods. Well that's very nice of you. remind me of that. I hadn't thought about it but it reminds me of an occasion during the war. I was he is at mgm. And i was with a group of other Mgm actress and we were doing We were what what did they call it. uso type show now us shows right and we were in the louis. Sean stadium echinacea Now washington. Oh what i think. It was washington. Yeah and i had to sing without accompaniment. they ask to fight. I would sing Little yellow from dorian gray great number odor members singing it with no accompaniment. Acapella put me away. Well well thank goodness. I was just able to bring it off. It wasn't very good but at least gave it my best but it's such a charming song. Such a sweet song. Yes yes. I just want someone to follow me around or snow flings over you white. You're so yes. Yes i want that to be. Someone's job in my life. Just walk behind me. While i sing and i can see the man remember it. Would sometimes it would go in my mom a hair singing sort of operatic society better meet. That happens yeah. Well you've been so kind to let us come and invade your your space here. The lovely home in los angeles and And the latin. The last thing we we have to ask you is about murder she wrote because it was it like you said it is and remains this huge leap popular thing. That is referenced. I would say. I'm fascinated by pop culture references. It's still brought up and it's still you know. How does that happen. We never know what was that like doing doing tv. Show like that a long running tv show. well it. It took a great deal of thought and pondering. Before i did it i i don so many years of night after night after night showing In new york. And i think peter my husband and i decided it was time. I did something that i made some money. You don't make money in the theater at me. Tell you and you know there comes a point where you say to yourself. A we've got we've got to settle down here. And that's when. I decided to come out here to los angeles and Make my break into into television and hopefully find a a series. That would really make it for me. I was fortunate that i went to universal and net at the producers. There and we settled on a character that i knew that i could bring off. You know it was not by not very complicated. Choose kind of a wonderful every woman you know what i mean. Just sorta covered covered the thoughts and ideas of every woman. And i love that about her a while to get it to the degree that it became which was a huge success world success murder she wrote has become but at to to start it off. We we did okay. She was a little bit well. I wasn't the way i wanted her to become. But a finally when we took over the show and I say we my brother bruce. The writer my husband the producer. My my son of director we. We made the show the way i wanted it. And that was when it really took off big time and thank goodness. I had that opportunity to play a woman that i really light. I like essex. And i love playing her and i think it showed i hope so because she does hang around today all over the world and New voices yes. But she's still jessica and you gave work to so many wonderful actors veteran actors. Who weren't the phone was ringing as regularly as it used to. For a lot of them. It was my joy to be able to do that. Bring him out here. Put them up a great hotel and work out of universal studios and we and they you know they loved it because it was such a release to get out our new york. Come to la and everything was just terrific. I always great to arson. We did well for them. I think i would say so. Yeah it's still on the tour universal. The tram tour. It's still says the fletcher and they play the song theme song. It's still there. I think it's a little before or after jaws. I can't remember it's still there still a big deal. Failure time with charles. That'll be the next shark. Nato spin off is the jessica. Fletcher shark nato. Oh oh or not or not. Perhaps we've other other great minds to figure out all right. Here's my trivia question of the day trivial question really for this. Do you remember if there was much discussion. Or was a point of contention the season that you re shot the main titles and change from typing on a typewriter to a computer. I forgotten nat leonard. I have to tell you. I that it's a spec in your life and career but as yes out tremendously. Yes when you started the show. You're typing on a portable typewriter on electric portable typewriter. And then at some point. Somebody decided that to keep you contemporary. He would no longer be using a typewriter. You've using a word processor. Wow i hope this doesn't cost you any loss of sleep up now but I'll talk to antony my son and ask him if he remembers if he was in any way responsible him he he could have been are i. I don't know maybe. I had something to do with it but i don't remember that but god bless you for remembering because anybody to me i would have said no. I always used a time now. I didn't well you. But i do a career. That's the whole thing is. You can't remember everything and then even so someone might bring something up and it's we always joke. It's all in there somewhere. There's someone will say something in you all my god. You have to unlock the door in the very back of your head and bring it forward and say oh my i completely forgot about them exactly. Yeah well i the one thing i do remember. Share this with you. I'll never forget the time. I we were in santa barbara. We're in my son's house and they were trying to talk me into doing x. Number more years of murder she wrote. I wanted to finish it. And finally i agreed. Yeah wore you down. They warm down. Well it was the family business right. Yes exactly everybody was into the act. So i didn't couldn't blame them and While so no one regrets that live. You ought asain. Certainly no-one regrets that. I'll ls as the lovely part. Is he remembered with affection affection. Hey feel they know that You know part of my life as an actress but nevertheless they did remember that knobs and broomsticks. Who would have thought i mean. That's another one where people just go nuts. They love it the childhoods in its stock. Well that's the good thing or as those children who were in it and That was a lovely part had so much to do with kids and their involvement and the stories and so on the imagination of the producers and the writers of that show. They really did a great job. i'm sorry that's my ride. Yes just the i think. I think you're gardeners are trying to tell us something surprised. Perhaps worn out are welcome. Well it's been lovely talking to you. I have to say that all of your questions really they. They really had the you have the ability to make me remember that. I haven't talked about for years.

face staring up at me from surveillance lens camera footage taken from a seven eleven in seattle washington the man veronica referred to as the father held a piece of paper on that paper he'd written a number that number what's forty three these kind of things the leave no doubt that something is going on video or photographic evidence hard evidence but was it actually hard evidence sure there is surveillance camera footage of a man in a seven eleven in seattle to space looks exactly like one particular unofficial photograph of grigori raspy but i was the only one i knew outside side of veronica who had seen the father and i had no way of getting in touch with her what if this was just a man who looked like raspy or was related a distant relative or perhaps even a direct descendant that seven eleven surveillance camera footage was really only hard evidence to me hard evidence physical evidence state of mind context agenda and perspective there were a number of factors that needed to be taken into consideration when examining any so called proof were going to take a look at some physical evidence now the book i discovered in that photograph of doctor bernie's office the book mk in i briefly had in her possession while exploring the last movie the mysterious book known as the metal ascetic atlas we're going to play an excerpt from the last movie podcast related to the malice at a cat less for you now the mail a set of cat less reminded me of two books my cousin tarian i grew up in the first we read in high school it's called the necker nommik on most likely a fictional book inspired by the fictional book invented by lovecraft but interesting interesting nonetheless a friend of ours brought a twin of are being de sessions and we became obsessed with connecting that books arcane symbols to her own live the second book with something terry became obsessed with the university it was released in two thousand three written by jerry de coleman it's called exploring the darker side of america strange highway a guide book to american mysteries in the unexplained we actually took a trip out to tennessee to check out some location mj did some digging stars like intel it's like an early version of what these days would be a crowd source wicky taken staying the guidebook focused on north america weird north america to be precise weird yeah fucking weird publish it addresses just a p o box stay except you mentioned by email me at mouth outlets dot com mellow senate godless dot com mhm okay so so people sending the suggestion dad interesting destinations and attractions what kind of destinations and attractions lots of creepy hunting shit okay like i tried to order the book a few times but added received a response is still being published i think so either any amount you know craig's left either so so do we have anything i've only been able to find a dozen her so scanner pages online but what i find interesting okay but there's everything from romantic bed and breakfast haunted the houses and serial killer murder locations unelected wiccan power circles in alters i found what appears to be an old table of contents in the early nineties and it looks like there are a couple of entry tennis tennis related things it's like what they have entry destroyed the town of railroad washington hand fighting trolley we dig further into the metal aesthetic atlas on the last movie podcast which if you enjoy tennis you should subscribe to right now at apple podcasts spotify or wherever you listen but all you really need to know at the moment is that it's a strange mysterious book appears to be tied to a phenomenon and also that my sleep therapists had a copy of it in her office a copy that we had possession just long enough to scan a fairly significant number of pages this wasn't the first copy of the male ascetic outlets at m k and i had seen in fact as i mentioned earlier we had copies and are possession brief time during are investigation shouldn't into the last movie copies that eventually went missing under very mysterious circumstances the mel ascetic atlas is a leather bound guidebook there is a symbol on the spine and on the first page that looks kind of like a flower with an axe or to cross ones in the middle of it and some of the entries in atlas were very outdated others reference locations were impossible or extremely difficult the access they were entries for a roller rink and i drive in theater that had both closed in the nineties at a hotel that had been burned to its foundations by radical cult in texas they made a tv movie about that event sometime around two thousand three years so there were other interesting locations like haunted hot springs conspiratorial homes possessed paintings in modern art museums a ghostly photo matt in the middle of a walmart parking lot and many more but among these concrete physical locations where other more mysterious locales coordinates in the middle of the woods with nothing more than a few backpackers descriptions of strange geography in even stranger creatures a weird old radio tower in the middle of the desert west of las vegas and a bunch of other auden interesting places aside from the aforementioned fort ness quality in washington entries there is nothing that appeared to be overtly tennis related in the scandal sandra photograph pages of that unless we had at are disposal but there was something potentially interesting on one of those pages it was page forty three the number of the men in that seven eleven

which had been circled and black marker featured something else the mark leeann hotel in seattle washington also written across the photo of the mark leeann hotel in black sharpie what's the number the number three oh four i just love this interview in three or four of the queen hotel you you did what yeah dead end were staying there tonight mk had been in the studio helping me research the male ascetic atlas she was really into that book for some reason digging into those pages we had scanned and photographs from the atlas was kind of her saying lately the mark leeann hotel was built in nineteen eighteen team is the seattle engineering school and operated as a training school to retrain blacksmith to work for ford during the fifty year period of the schools existence many blacksmith were trained to become doctors there's of motors one such blacksmith with a man named carl kurtz while not much is known about carlin meal kurzweil outside of the fact that he studied at the seattle engineering school lift there from the very beginning and died there tragically in nineteen twenty i'm bringing up the name carl emil kurtz while of course because we found a photo of him including in the article and the mark leeann hotel apparently he died in the hotel and rumor has it that it's his go sit harmon the halls keeps guests awake at night and has been creating general ghostly mischief and mayhem throughout the years they tried seance is exorcism burning sage in advance punch way but so far nothing worked and now a mere cat and myself were going to spend the night in the mark leeann hotel in rooms three or four because somebody hits grow that number in a copy of a strange guy but i was feeling unsure about the whole thing mk however was pretty excited displaces fucking awesome yeah i've actually eating here a few times quote i'm starving we ate in the tin lizzy lounge had a few glasses of wine and enjoyed the boss of nova music and relaxed atmosphere it was nice to sit there in that place with m k and just exhale of course during that moment m k ultra tablet working on something it turns out it was something related to the hotel to check us out on okay what am i looking at lieutenants okay hey but look at the section here right interesting in that what's interesting is looks like a room now but it's not a real what do you mean i mean it was a room but not anymore okay what is it now some kind of storage area office okay well forgive me for saying this i really hate the diminished you're discovery but then office or storage area is still around not a hotel room no not a single occupancy room finley engineering days okay that's true in certainly not a single occupancy room occupied by and then in august wet but yeah interesting allergy it's definitely interesting now mk had track down a list of the occupants of the engineering school august wick was listed as a guest of the school he wasn't intending but it looked like he had been visiting the area for some reason stay in room three oh four was free from supernatural events no ghosts knocking creaking are waking up at three twenty seven am turns out he actual room was a bust but just before we're about to leave mk convinced the bellman let us take a look at the storage area the bellman told us that the storage area had been a regular room at one point but after the renovations it ended up functioning as an office in storage area it was pretty big front office there were a lot of shelves filled with all kinds of artifacts from another time the bellman had to leave to attend a client of the hotel which allowed us a few minutes alone in the office slash storage area wow there's a lot of shed 'em yeah literally nice yup looks like what is that lost and found maybe yeah looks like it could i found that is crazy not one looks a lot older yeah 'em okay what do you do any kind of keepers finders keepers isn't something that i'm legally prepared to defend so we took the copy of the milosevic outlets the damn kid found in the lost and found section of that room and explain to the element that we'd like to borrow it if possible he told us that he thought we could actually have studied the check with his boss first finding that book there in that room was surprising to say the least something that in retrospect maybe shouldn't have been surprising but when we try to get back in touch with the bellman we were unable to do so we spoke with the manager who told us that there were no books and the lost and found but that she definitely be in touch if she found what we were looking for m k wasn't impressed she really wanted to get her hands on another copy of that book something i was able to do however before we handed that copy of the male ascetic atlas back to the element let's take a photo of one of the pages one page had been dug aired in when i saw that page contained grove of trees that look like they may have been located you know where i pulled up my bone and took a photograph that particular page if the malice at i got less concerned with the group known as the face of flowers nature worshipping called active around the dawn

nerves in the sixties the face of flowers where vegetarians into meditation and looking inward but unlike most other organized religions are colts the faith of flowers were obsessed with earth with protecting understanding the planet that their primary directive for them harming a plant without using its energy forward life with justice graven offense is harming in animal person the reason the face of flowers were included in the mail ascetic outlasts wasn't because of their unique face or attitude toward foliage and fauna because they disappeared all of the firm clearing in the middle of the woods in nineteen sixteen what the male ascetic atlas provided with a map directions on how to get to the temple that place in the woods the place where all thirty seven members of the faith of flowers disappeared from the service forever it was just about a mile west of a very familiar part of the wall cameron alice at erected around the area he refers to as the breach how much further i knew i get you're saying that when people say kept recordings jack yeah so well i can't tell distances based on the map but the last sign coast where the twin ross in the last point on the map before we turn is supposed to be the waterfall what listen it sounds like we might be closed finally a few minutes after we stopped we found the small waterfall and turned in the direction of clearing that had been marked on the map it wasn't long before we found something although there was no clearing teams on what is it like a total number of something like this isn't really a clearing but i guess it probably was at one point or is it a glaring you're almost any variance while there are many trees the grass and narrow leads the shrimp sort of every athlete it's a clear on summer here don't me pull this step away from the toyota that's not a total paul hello nick mk sentence thank you when you doing here i came to explain a couple of things i do know we'd be here we've been following you so alex those right yes why keeping an eye on that cure important i'm not the navigator well we may have to agree to disagree on that point what happened in russia with the father i'm afraid that's between you and the mic what do you mean i don't have anything to offer when it comes to what happens in the fan i'm sorry what is this place the face of flowers disappeared from here over a hundred years ago yeah we got that pirates this was a meeting place a place of great power where we gathered to honor the planet the father the mother everything else band yes so year group is where the same yes the face of flowers hours in my our organization are one in the same so what happened to them so the disappearance remains a tragic mystery although we do have a series like what they become impatient waiting for somebody to delete them they became volatile rather than following the prophecy they attempted comedian on the room the prophecy the navigator the runner that kind of thing yes so they committed suicide we don't know exactly what happened here you can't hear i'm here can you nick if you're asking if there's something in my mind my head then no i don't share this place is no longer a place power the stone longer mark see actresses now just another part of the world you've been following s for your protection i don't need protection most certainly do nick what do you mean i mean what if what they're doing now doesn't work what are you talking about knowing about the fence about russia japan it's happening nick is waking up okay so so what is the person they're using communicate is unable to complete their mission i don't get it you don't know what they're using veronica what do you mean i mean they've taken her against her will and they're using how they're using veronica trying manipulate the fat and speak with tennis no meant to change it to bend that power and turn it into something else into what something bad we spoke with paul for a while longer and although he didn't offer any further information on what he meant by something that he did agree the remaining touch will be worked out what to do with information he provided about veronica in cameron alice in the meantime mk at found something else something related to the multiple breach theory what is it it's about the group in antarctica that disappeared in nineteen ninety seven you know the runner mythology and all that yeah okay well what about well it turns out the families were extremely well taken care of what do you mean i mean every single family member related to every person on that research team is currently incredibly wealthy not that on some kind of settlement over there was a settlement definitely but what doesn't make sense is a never ending settlement what do you mean i mean normally when a whole bunch of people get paid off eventually some of those people lose that money right you see it all the time when the lottery winners going broke right they just can't cope with the kind of pressure to in this to just they were able to know in this case the payoff never stop anytime the bank accounts debt but there's a fresh infusion of cash securities from from a whole bunch of shallan holding companies that you know it's about to get more interesting okay so i've only been able to track for these payments so far but all four i can be traced back to one parent company tesla note yup team yeah what was testing doing down in probably not probably not okay i gotta run okay so tesla novak most likely been involved in something down in antarctica in nineteen ninety seven something that resulted in the deaths or disappearance of that research antarctica sealand dia russia japan and very familiar section of the forest up here in the pacific northwest multiple breaches multiple stories multiple mysteries this thing is getting big i wasn't sure how to proceed what to do i really want it to find out what what's happening with veronica if she really was being held against her will like paul said but there is no way cameron alice what's going to telling me but cameron ellis was going to hear this podcast paul knew that and i know that so before he does i'm going have to try and find out exactly what's going on the call paul and true to his word he answered and agreed to meet thank you for coming you're welcome i'd like to dive right in if you don't mind that's fine okay well my first question is what makes you think camera analysis holding veronica against her will because i've seen her where she i'm not sure where she has right now but i've seen her recently when when you tour together and that tank when you're talking about i'm talking about that sensory deprivation tank in the woods okay but i was there with carl ben sam nunn veronica i could tell you entered the facility with carl but i wish you remember about that night i remember getting into the tank and then relaxing that's pretty much it well if you like i can tell you what happened after you carl entered the tank nick what's happening car was compromised by the experience the combination of the drugs and me affected the geography they pulled him out and let him go they just let him go they tried to come down to sedate and but carl was difficult to straighten out and meet you remained in the tank girls places taken by veronica shoes lead into the rooms wooded zip ties in you're sharing it with us veronica i'm positive i'm sorry paul but i'm not sure i believe i completely understand that's why these what these recordings recordings what have you and the sensory deprivation tank which veronica how did you get a camera has cameron ellison is people disregarding as a firm that night with carl no win from this recording of you and veronica in the sensory deprivation tank was made while you were working else what do you mean i mean this recordings taking back when you were working at pacific station it's tennis i'm nick silver will be back

But L was there being a great third party judge of just like doing Jin scratches occasionally chiming in? I'm with him on that point. And I appreciate it most. Because you're supporting me, absolutely. Maybe that's why like a great judge was on your side. I think you actually know you said you didn't say I'm with him. He said I'm with her. Yeah.

It was like he wanted to nine across the board. Nine percent, all Godfather's pizza. Day every day everything he was just doing to Godfather's pizza. Yeah. That would kick ass. Just you're only doing it to promote your pizza chain. I mean, I I mean, that's essentially what we that's kind of what we have now. I mean, we do have like a president who is profiting off of his businesses. Yeah. Well, we we almost had Trump because you know, there's still he didn't. Cena's and giving so he's so oh, that's right because everybody who's like racist. And insane is just like I'm gonna give them all my money. Yes.

That sounds like my party this. Yeah. I was in the swan joints. Djamil you're giving us a update on Keith. Dick median if those of you that have not listened to every episode of the podcast. I described an incident wherein this is at the Boston mall. This is at the comedy spot. The hot broth open mic comedies. That was the first place. I ever did stand up those talking to a friend about this girl that I was like nervous to talk to I had never kissed girl before. I was in high school, and then Keith the comedian comes up, and he's like this is how you gotta eat pussy. You got to do with your tongue? We are I with Keith comedian older sex skies give you but sex advice interest lies, and this is the this is like my like most prominent example in my in my mind, just because like that that really stuck with me and like a bad way. It's not not even good advice. It was just like that. Exact same advice. It's not no. Literally dislike the advice was do it yet. Just the it's just like, hey, just like, you know, mostly mostly up top mostly mostly higher on the you know, a little higher than what you're doing right now. Higher up in the strike zone. Yeah. This higher in the strike zone. Yeah. Little World Series member where this folks. Yeah. Tight end tight. It's yeah. You can watch the World Series, by the way on FOX on FOX, right? Yeah. Yeah.

We were you saying I was saying thanks for having me back does time. I saw both of you guys. Yes. I felt like a real jerk Brandon yelled at you at that bar yelled. I never yelled. I've never yielded. Any didn't yell at me? But he did make me go. What did he do forced me to go? Show the pizzeria. Yeah, we do the pizza show, and he's close to Clifton bar that Walt Disney would go there to become to be inspired. I'm not making steamboat Willie. That too. Yeah. Got a bunch of people. Go. Just go there that was the same brand weird place for him to stand. I hate when we talk about local spots on this show. But it is there's been some local spot arguments on the show. And that was it. We almost had one live at Clifton. Yeah. He texted me. He's like, let's go to Clifton sounds like no why why do we wanna go there? And then when you a cheesecake factory bar. It's not a very tourist. It's four cheesecake factory stacked on top of each other. It's like people who are at conferences. It's look in town for conferences, go there. It's a little cooler. I like the lodge vibe. It's like a hard as extremely decorated. Exactly. A big boy full spot lodges are back to great wolf lodge. Just wasn't. I wasn't great wolf lodge recently. Yeah. Oh, yeah. It was. It was dark with the hotel and the water Parker in the same spot me. And my boys. Me and my boys back to your hotel boys were thinking like a funny thing to do for the weekend. And we like to go to a waterpark would be so funny. We'll get fucked up and go to the water slides. Yes. Great wolf lodge? We pulled up there realizing we made a massive mistake because it's all all children. Which is a bunch of men nasty. It was it was really bad looks bad. Yeah. It was so bad. Yeah. We heard floods. Yeah. Four full grown men. It's in a weird. It's like in the summer. It's like Santa Ana thirty plus guys. Like, it's all it's all men that are thirty and older forty and older the shirts off shirts off Margaritas Rashed. Yeah. Trash like tons of good on the side in your in your in a line behind a bunch of children. It's mostly children there. Yeah. It was bad. I don't know what we're thinking. But it was funny. There's no like what we can't. We can't hang here. We have to go find something else to do. But we're in the middle of. I mean, we're not in the middle of nowhere were in like some suburb. You know, there's not like a bar like there's bar. So we went out to these bars downtown wherever suburb, we were, and it's exactly what you imagine a suburban bar scene bourbon bar Zor. Real rough. I've definitely visited like fat Tuesday's university. Yes. It was very duck. Does a while night. Go to a Nike store. Yeah. Yeah. There's not much you can do to and it's all people that are drunk driving. Oh, yeah. You got to do that. It's all. Yeah. It's all every bar is three miles apart. And there's no cabs around cares. Like twenty dollars adulting is drunk driving. That's what you know. You're on the key drunk driving maintain good posture. Everybody down. Down in your seat. Sit up straight. Yes. Differ, lip right? Just proper posture. Yeah. Pretender florida. Yeah. Just hold your neck. That just reminds me too of another like dumb a dumb guy lie that you would hear in high school. There's at least for me a couple people would be like, do, you know, the the best way to get out of DUI is like so if you get pulled over right? You get pulled over for DUI, and you have liquor on you, you get out through your keys out into the grass start shedding a bottle of Jack Daniels, dude. And that way if you're like, why wasn't driving. I just got drunk. Can't prove I wasn't drunk Chuck in my oh my God. It would not work. I've never seen it in action. But imagine just doing that that such a wild hail Mary. Yeah. That mean, you're carrying around a bottle like the key to getting a DUI is driving around constantly with a full of Jack day. I wanna say I may have tried that no way not getting. But like removing the keys from a car who was me, and my homies we're like maybe just out of high school. And this was like when like incredible hulks were pop. Everybody was drinking hypnotic and Hennessey. Oh, turn green. Yeah. I'm not familiar with Jews baby. That's very oath three years. Yeah. That's like just like oh five. Oh, six this is like right after the angrily Hoke. Yeah. Right after angrily right after Krung juice comes out, Eric Bana, hulk. Yeah. Yeah. Everybody loves Eric Bana. Yeah. And we're like, let's get my boy Carl who is my man's in kind of a dickhead. I we get these bottles. I'm like, let's put them in the trunk. Yeah. Go to compete to go to this party. He's nominee keep mine in the car with me. Just needed next to he was so proud of urging alcohol. Yeah, he had to keep touching them like fine. You know, whatever do and then the cops rolled up on us, the cops road opponents in a fucking parking lot because it was like some litter out next to us somebody on the spot next to us at like dropped off trash, and the, you know. My they'll Neidl. Yeah. Carl might not be white either. Yup. Said okay. We're blackish. In this parking lot fucking boxes in. Yeah. And they're like, I'm like, okay toss keys and act like good. And they're like everybody get the fuck out. You know, search the whole car and base long story short. They make Carl poor his bottle of hypnotic. How do? In front of all of us. And then they let us go. Let me went to this party, and we had to drink Hennessy straight like like grownups. No, he became a man that no juice. I know they let you keep the handling. Let you keep the Hennessy because it was in the trunk. They didn't pop. But they like maybe get out hold the hypnotic yet. He just wanted to wanted it in his hands for the ride like that. It was blue remember people drinking. It's not good. It's like a high school drink right for sure there's certain drinks that you should only be allowed to drink under hypnotic is one of them is another one of them. Cami captain Morgan for us. Really all that was like that wasn't a for us like the we drank a lot of dirty stuff. Like mickey's? We mad dog. We forty forty by the way. I don't think it's mad dog MD stance. I probably something else streets just decided it was mad dog we drink that. But then like when we that was always a funny move when you'd find a twenty one year old, and they'll be like, well, what do you want? And you realize you don't know any never been a liquor store. You know, you're like only from commercials you're like oh of captain Morton like. Oh, 'cause it's just like the thing that you see the ads. Yeah. You're like. Oh, yeah.

As long as we're waiting in about what we want to fix in the world right now for can drink out of a little tiny pond. Shouldn't a real as glass, I wanna drink out of a business. Here's an idea we go to the pond, we we drink lake water. Now, that's a fucking party. That's what. Yeah. Dinner party rant resonate with you guys at all or. No dinner party can be symbolic too. Sure. Our friends just didn't get down like that. That's good. That was not happening. Would you were playing beer pong on an air hockey table on top of a a piece of balsa wood should be doing? You know, I have -solutely doing that for as long as you can until it's like not okay to do it. Did we talk about? I don't think we talked about the dropout thing. Just reminded me. Sure. I don't think we ever talked about. Did we ever talk about me? And my roommate coal Hickey VC. Yes. Hell fucking guests guy with the weirdest feel bad because I dropped out so fast, and then just like immediately, I dropped out of VCU very fast. I lived in a two bedroom apartment with my boy from high school, and he was like sort of on like he was in the the same friend group. But like we didn't really hang out that much, but he like had a room open, and we moved in together. He he chose to. There was one room with a window Cher and one without those like slightly small smaller. And I remember one time one time it was we did like a show like steady sounds records in Richmond. And it's it was like, Nick Mullen, Adam Friedland, you and me, and you guys like head all come at once, and like we're sort of like visiting the we are on sublease that apartment we only all down. He was like, yes. So we like popped into Cole's room saying what's up and like Adam goes, oh lake. Your room doesn't have windows is that ever get. You know, do you ever get tired of that? And he's like, no, it's better for gaming. Chose to have the. Yeah, he chose to have the smaller room without windows. Even though I was like barely there. I was barely this apartment. I would go back almost every day. It's like DC or like Arlington or whatever to do comedy. I wasn't going classes I was gone almost every weekend. And then like yet, but he wanted the smaller room because he was like I chose to have the smaller room because then I would have more money forgiving. And yeah, because he was paying a little less than rent. And so he could spend more money on like XBox shit scum. Sound smart then like? And I kind of I dropped out on like pretty short notice. I like hours before. Yeah. I don't think I want to go to school, man. I think like needs like move to LA like the fuck out. And so I like went on Craigslist, and like just interviewed people to like take my room, and I gave it to some like youth pastor. I give I guess. Yeah. Like, I subleased the rooms this like youth pastor who like definitely. Yeah. I feel bad because like he he had the mindset of like, yeah, I'm gonna live with my boy living with a youth. And then he ended up with like a youth pastor from Craigslist. It's probably one of the shittiest things. I've done is friend. I gotta I have to agree. But yeah. Yeah. I mean, that's one of the shittiest friend moves I've pulled, but you you would up at that apartment a fair amount. Yeah. Yeah. You know, it's a classic yet, but still content. If you wanna go. To revisit the Brody Stevens dramatic Johnson. I I've heard the worst day of my life. This is this is your first. This is your first episode on the show without Brody Stevens this crazy.

Let's like on weirdly on brand for you wouldn't take for everyone. Exactly the same pocket. No. I get away with a lot of out of pocket shit. Little brother pass. It is. And it's something that I won't be. It's something that I can get away with right now while I look like this go beard. No, no, it's something. My my my boyish features and nonthreatening nature and. I would say, I guess I would say sexual ambiguity. Don't ever fuck. What a pop as it'll last your whole life as long as you. Don't get mad at any camera. Yes. Yeah. It's allowed me to just sort of like in its, but it it's all playful. I'm like, oh, you can watch. Oh, you're watching my story. But you can't reply to a Texan. They're like. Oh, sorry.

I probably have you pulled on. I'm wondering like how much of haunting is accidental. The this is why I I've been remaining chilly because I'm like what if what if these are just people who just let the stories run. Just put the phone down. Let it ride let it ride is still like when it happens like four times in a row are. Yes. A lot of people that I'm not I don't care about, you know, I'm just what sometimes I'm just like what is and I'll be like. And I'll be like this person's up to you know, what?

And then he has record Gulf yellow doing I shot I shot. One at a Gusta national never do. Holes. What's the I'm? Yeah. I'm willing to be dating guru right now. I mean that was my main thing which is been dealing with this haunt stuff other than that protocol be decided I mean. Yeah. Being being single on Instagram is it is. I mean, dating is weird. We're with aid. Is different in dating in New York and LA is. Thing is is dating as a creative is freaking as and it's fucking everybody has a weird schedule, and they are fucking everybody in LA. They're fucking model. DJ? How are you today? It's anyone in this New York every girl in New York is naked right now every girl in Los Angeles, deejay producer. None win every girl. Bo slash Earl in LA. I I like ideas like some dude doing like a dating LA material, but it's all like very off base. Brel? I swear to God, man. I'm trying to date in LA and dating Ellie is hard. Because like every woman is a nun everywhere, you go you go to the fucking club. Every girl is a nun. I wanna fuck bitch. That isn't enough much ask for everywhere. I go every time I go to one oak. It's all. All of bunch of nuns, getting service, New York. It's rabbis. Yeah. Christmas men, men and women are different. And every man is a rabbi every woman is a nun. Manner. Anyway, should I. You should you should get get on. Ryan just. I don't know about I don't even have the credentials. What kind of Christ? Just get a referral. Yeah. You know enough people that are like on Ryan, I'm already I couldn't I could not. I would never do. I'm never going to be on Tinder, I've never going to be on bumble I fear of screen shots. I think screen shots are evil. And that's the thing. What is good about rise? You're not allowed to screen shots. I know that if I was ended something that has happened. When I was like, even before I was ever like even before like, I had any sort of like real following their remember, I was just like on lake when I was on tour with like Odin Kirk, and like, I didn't even have any like a lot of Twitter followers yet. I remembered somebody screamed I was using Tinder in somebody screen shotted it and sent it to me on Twitter. And I was like, oh, well, as if I have I can't do this with like a platform saying that somebody with like, I'm not like, I'm not a famous person, but like people would screen. Sure. The reason not on tender either bro because some people's whole brands you guys a to just like screen shots now famous. I know that people who use these EPs, we'll take your conversation, and we'll use your Joyce to get on likes up. We'll so many. I mean, so many like, I guess. Yeah. A lot of like, you know, a lot of like comics a lot of female comics, like a lot of their social media presences are just Tinder screen shots. Which is you know, it's they'll just post like chats like oh look at this fucking loser. I just phone in a river. And I mean, obviously. And it is often losers. It is also like you're on that app to and it's like everybody is like everybody ultimately in this world. I think like for the most part just generally speaking regarding like, just the populace most people are sad lonely and horny, and they're just that's why these ads. There's just like when when people just like post a tender screen shot that isn't even like a guy being like predatory or anything when it's just like oh look at this fucking loser. Like look at a picture of this loser. And I don't think I do think it's like mean, and I don't and I also say books. I don't think it's comics doing that. Because I've only seen comics post like like, okay? Does she need people fully sucks? But I think like unfunny people are doing that loser shit. Yeah. Absolutely. And it's like come on guys. Yeah. Just like just like posting pictures like, oh, look this guy. This guy is wearing fish cost play or you're just like, oh, look at this guy holding a fish, and it's like. Here's the bigger point. Here is that men are persecuted day to today. That's the thing. Men used to be men. Okay. We used to have beard speak on we used to go to work. We used to drink a big Cup of coffee and bring home the bread. And when we get home. There would be a nice casserole waiting. Okay. And and okay is that that is I think every guy should have a girlfriend given to him by the governor. I think what you're saying. Games brand. I like what he's saying that this is a separate. What you're saying is separate from me talking about people posting regardless of gender just people posting Tinder screen shots and making fun. I do think that that's shitty. Sure. Is that not fair one? No, absolutely. I. Yeah. So you agree. Yeah. I'm not making fun you. Okay. Yes. A comedy podcast brain branching off into I got defensive because I'm like. What I'm saying to read as like, I'm not being I'm not being some sort of a no, no. Here. I'll take it to a totally different direct like it. Rule comedy is officially serious now comedy comedy. Initially cancelled. It's not if you're not making points. We're doing TED talks. Yeah. Everything. Fox. Okay. There is I think there's a. Yeah. There is definitely there is a healthy balance. But yeah, I do think it is it definitely is exhausting. When like comics on online and just like, I think like it has definitely bled to the stage people just making points because you know, what? Because you know, who I want to teach me things about life people who do stand up comedy. Well, that's the thing. These are very these are mentally unstable individuals. And I'll also say the only reason I'm not on tenders because I haven't come up with a good enough bit yet. Tender. It's got to if it was if it was eccentric and original if I could come up with been working with the development team. Yeah. Yeah. You have like a writer's room. All writers earn for your Tinder profile hired five very different individuals to come in. And bless me. Yeah. The work Manzu is doing punch on your on your tender, Joe Mandy, super liken. Joints for me. Right. Wow. Yeah. That's crazy. Retain retain on here. If I want to positive spin on all this. This is what's good? This is there's a blessing in those weirdos. They're posting or whatever. Yes. You forget the blessing for both sides to is that you get to see the unfiltered raw representation of this person photos. Do you get to see a lot back in the day before our time like seventies era, you're buying each other drinks, you're getting to experience like the like how they are talking. You know, like, that's it. You're getting a window of them in the bar allowed bar like utilize your there's land mines all over the place that you're missing. And you get to see that stuff. You could get creep there. It is. Yeah. You're getting very clear somewhat clear human a lot of people could see through that totally back. You're just seeing like yours meeting some goofball who's buying you a drink in the trap into talking to him that you don't mind that you get to find out. I do think it is good to like have to be able to just see like a lay a grid layout of somebody's curated version of themselves. Because it's like, I think that the version of yourself that you're curing online does say a lot about you about what you're putting out into the universe. I don't know what mine says about me necessarily. You know, I've been on a real pit kick lately thought, which you know, I think half ironic, but in a way that I'm still like, oh, I got to still look. You you're you're you're saying I'm jovial thought. Yeah. I yeah. Obsessed with those apps not using them. But like I used to be extremely fascinated because like an anthropological like I get obsessed with that type of thing because it's so perfect. Like, you get to see there's a few variables especially in the early early of it like, you, you know, you had a few ways you express yourself. And I was extremely fascinated and seeing how people chose to like like what five photos they picked their angles were seeing the pattern a weird one that I noticed when tender I came around was that like I would see an astronomical amount of horses on that app. I actually had an early Instagram I hadn't account where I just post pictures of horses that were on Tinder a lot where it's like, not even a person and their horse. Horse horse or a lot of horses. You ever ever show to date? And you think you're about to fuck a horse. Wait a woman. I would be fuck fuck also Farrow was a horse's name I- person. I'm glad to know that they like out rather know that somebody has a horse upfront. You know, that's good to know with guys too. It's like, you know, it's very UC. Very weird patterns and choices. There's also a move the people do where it's like they post its you'll see a group of people and there's like somebody very good looking. And you scan your like, oh, that's not who I'm looking at like, it's they're all anywhere. Hot friend is featured in their profile, but it's not them anyone that yes. Featuring their hot friend in the first photos, like that's that's a level type day whereas of bait late, and it's fucked, and it's like, not okay. It's not. Okay. I mean, I actually have consulted for my friends on a lot. I'm a big apt ERC profile curator from my friends tried to help people. I do my best. I do think it's important. Have you seen should have pictures of their friends in their profile? It's like. It's like I have. Yeah. I have friends. Yeah. Because we also when you're browsing sometimes you'll see people and you'll take a look at their friend group. And you're like, I don't wanna chill those people. It doesn't look fun. You wanna you wanna scroll through mine and give I'll do some live analysis analysis photo is like a photo off I review other people. So just. So just. Aw. Yes. This is my. Okay. And so places Sufiane Stephen song as soon as you. I have feeling that's fine. I think Sufiane choice. Okay. Brennan, I'm gonna say this. Okay. The you have two pictures of you wearing the same jacket right next to each other. I would out sort that out. First one's good people wanna know, you have more than one jacket. Four dude you're wearing. Here's your wearing the same. Judge rome. Or the Brown. One five no way come on. So the blurred feet pick. These are all pictures where that one's a little dark. Yeah. Okay. Let's go one one two three four. Okay. I'm gonna make some changes right now. You've you've really? Yeah. A lot of the purple shorts. I got a I got gotta delete a couple of those jacket pictures, but I do look hot in all of these photos. I would suggest. Yeah. The funny stuff is good. Yup. First one's good. Yeah. It's a good mix of life. Some more. Does comedy. Gene, type things would be good professional. How one of you with a Mike? Wait, can I? Can I get random profiles? Yes. Okay. Wait, I got a well. Now, I'm now I'm in a state of like he's going to be working wolf crack into that later. You can you can do that. You can you can scroll through while you're well, real quick. Okay. You're not on any apps. Not you're not zero. You're not on any of the we'll say you've just like friends of friends or like. Yeah. Off the young acquaintance level. Sure. Do you go like that? This is this apps not as fun for this. Because it's like, it's I you don't have too many wildcards on here because it's people that like curate their heavily curate heavily curated people. Yeah. Well, yeah. That's I, but it's like the only dating app where I feel say here's another another somebody out a wild bread flag right now, you want to look out for when you're browsing these and doing it yourself when the first pick is one that's like they had to do some work to get the pick on there. I'm talking like it's super cropped like there's people cropped out of it. And it's like, it doesn't fit the dimensions size issue there. It's like the dementia. It looks is doesn't or if it's like a weird. Yeah. If it's a weird picture where they're like cotton a moment. And it's kinda like blurry. Oh, this is like that's like a weird picture that like makes them look better than they really look sure where it's just like, wait. Why? Or they're holding something we it's like why is this picture being presented odd choice? That's a red flag to watch out for those. Are you swiping through for me? Yeah. Just I'm just making. You're just making. I know what is good for you. What if you left what if you fucking left swipe on a on, my wife, I won't do that. Because I know you better than you know, yourself swipe on my next wife who see everybody on this stupid app has like professional pictures of them, right? Reach your daily likes. I didn't know those thing that is one thing. That's another weird thing to another look rant zone. Go ahead. So ranch a little bit edited. Boom, there's a certain amount of away. What is the DS alarm pictures? You're allowed to have yourself. Okay. Look, nobody should have that many, quite frankly. Yes. If you're a professional model, that's one thing for work. You're getting shot with a DSL are and you're getting paid to do this. But I think we all know at least one person who has like DSL like, you know, professional photos of them doing mundane stuff, and they're dropping these daily, and you're just left wondering who is this person photographing, you you have going with you who took that DSL our picture of who's that's a weird thing with like comedians now is like I feel like so many. I mean, specifically LA comics, but why are these people getting professional photo shoots done constantly. I mean, rather, and then it's even. It's like a from time to time like pictures come up from time to time that can have a lot of times. It's like it's people were it's like, oh, you haven't written a new joke in Seoul long. And we're going to like a hundred photo shoots. Personally. I got some stuff playing arm trying to get ten thousand on Instagram. So I can be Kohl's spokesperson once and for all.
