"And Gary Cooper is you know to have Gary Cooper who had just played Sergeant York in a movie also directed by Howard Hawks by the way being this naive This naive man who's never been with the woman doesn't know anything about women are sex that in itself is funny to write because it's Gary Cooper and he's not like that at all that his image is not like that. So and it does create comedy right off the Bat and It's just really this movie show. So clearly, Howard hawks approached the idea of comedy. Yeah. No question not least of which, of course, is the strong self-assured heroine who is never better here in Barbara, stanwick and. Putting aside, everything we've talked about. You can imagine that you could have hired slightly more amateur people in all categories and somehow Barbara stanwick would find a way to shine through and kind of carry a movie on her shoulders because she's just that good time and again and certainly in this Ville. Yeah I mean Barbara stanwyck she she commits herself. So fully to the role even though it's not style Dallas, it's not double indemnity at you know it's not a heavy drama it's not as quote unquote serious role. But she treats it like one and we believe that she's sugar puss OJ the nightclub girl and It's to her credit that I. Think because she does that that we actually do feel for her towards the end when her character is going through some some trauma, some some heartbreak. Ya No question I mean I think you probably know better but. Ginger Rogers was initially considered for the lead role. Is that correct? Yes that is right As Best I could tell she she was the number one choice she just went an Oscar for kitty foyle. And didn't want to she almost I think sheep she saw this as a little beneath her at the time like she didn't WanNa play another nightclub floozy Ryan. But exactly to that point that. Barbara stanwyck just not she just of actress to say she will pour herself into whichever character she's playing. She'll find the the fund certainly but also to your point, the dignity in every character and a humanity in every character, and we do feel it. More.

"Our periodically. Devoted to a recently published book on history, my all time favorite subject. And that's because I find it fascinating. But because it's so important. So that's how we got where we are. Oh now, I understand. That's what every history book should tell you. Now, I understand the Yanks are coming is the name of the book, I'm featuring this history. Our military history of the United States in World War World War One. The whole point is that it's World War. One H W Crocker. The third is the author. And you were explaining you're answering my question, how did we go from fighting Mexicans to being able to have four million men fight? Well in Europe. Well, I suppose, you know, hats off she'd go to many people Woodrow Wilson, only to the extent that he he stayed out of the way. But actually, I should say this about two-thirds of the book the way it's written is devoted to biography. Biographies American generals are American heroes of the war still very personal sort of take American heroes. And one of those who is profile is just general Pershing commanded the forces. But general Peyton c March who was responsible for actually organizing the American army building up these numbers and training them. An interesting thing about both. How we go from being this fighting puncture via the mobilizing four men. Sending them to France is thinking about people like Peyton c March March was born during the civil war and he lives to see the end of the Korean war. Douglas, MacArthur, who is a Brigadier General in the first World War when seven seven star tennis stars, which is a record. He he grew up following his father's father traveled to the wild west and MacArthur remembered that the west things like John Ford, John Wayne Katharine movie, he from that go through over one to command troops in Korea into an atomic age and says something else I try to bring out in the book. It's not just how we mobilize him and how he fought the war, which is in its own way. Interesting because the American experience not one of leaping over the trenches and being shot down by machine-gun ball to individual combat the men, it's clean the cars. I can try to Indian fighting except that the Indians in this case armed with machine guns and grenades habit of discipline. But also a sense of how America goes from the civil war to to the first of war to this position of global power 'cause amendment in profiled. I mean, like Patton and Marshall. Marshall plan the man who forces catcher who I mean, we think the greatest generation is being the World War Two generation. But a lot of the men who who led our armies and over to actually got their first taste of combat or or an early tastes in World War. What? In Europe, World, War One devastated. Everything it rendered the continent. Cynical? People went from religion to acknowledge the schism and. Non church attendance. They went from nationalism to for to ridiculing patriotism. Why didn't it have any such negative effect on Americans? Well, it did have some effect. It had some effects largely Americans who were living overseas and party was men like the lost generation the Hemingway's getting sold in in Spain. Or that's Gerald in France. But. Also it led to the sort of there. No, great rush to war. I and World War Two either. The religious falling out was yes. Much less marked in America than it was in Europe, and the nationalist falling out. Yes. Yes. I mean, there's a famous incident during the war in nineteen fourteen. British troops look up, and they believe they see that he says and Djelic Archer supporting them any you had a is it a stained glass imagination which could exist in nineteen fourteen by nineteen eighteen that is utterly crushed and gone away. But the American experiences both briefer it's too broad. And and it's just. I'll put it this way. When the Americans arrived, both the chairman's. Well, I guess the reaction might be the most important the Germans reacted regarded the normal American infantry as shock troops. And the reason they did. So was three years in the war. The Germans were selling at a very good army the British army the French degree, but they were gonna exhausted European civilization. Had exhausted had bled itself away in this in this terrible. Calamity the Americans came over with this go get him spirit, which persisted throughout the entire war. And which included I should say maybe men like Eddie Rickenbacker who has our eras who had been a race car driver beforehand. If you ever see a picture of Eddie Rickenbacker before after the war. He says cocky, looking guy orient Douglas McArthur has poses of himself with his they called him. The dude. Because he he he went into the into combat wearing a muffler around his neck and the soft cap our guys maintain the sort of dashing. Scare it which which had lost by their pan towers in the trenches while the who is the biggest heroic names to come out of World War One, well, one that had rations with sergeant York sergeant York was a mountain man, sharpshooter pacifist. That had to be convinced that the war was right, which he eventually became and around one hundred thirty two Germans, virtually singlehandedly and became the subject of a kademi award winning movie in nineteen forty one called sergeant York starring Cary Cooper, which was really kind of a a a prelude to getting Americans to accept the fact that they're going to war in Europe. Again, he was a great hero eighty Rickenbach mentioned with our areas all four of teddy Roosevelt zones. Served.

But he threw you know, his faith and everything, you know, accepted that whatever happened was God's plan. And as a result, he, you know, he he goes over, and he fights he ends up, you know, saving a bunch of a lot of his guys. And I think it was like a hundred and thirty six, you know, German prisoners, he took captive, and you know, one the middle of honor. And then, you know, his whole story about coming home and not wanting to profit off of what he's done and the generosity of his hometown is a great story. Yeah. The hometown aspect. I always love those movies too.

"Four one, including sergeant York. Sergeant york. I mean, I've gone back and read the history of that man that Alvin York was absolutely unbelievable. It was it was though when I was reading it. I was thinking if somebody wrote this in a Hollywood script, no one would believe it. And yet he was the real deal wasn't. He. He was a real deal from Pall Mall, Tennessee. Mountain man that was you know, very religious conscientious objector at the beginning of the war. Has a change of. A rebel rouser, actually. And then becomes a born again Christian in it conscious center before the war, then convinced to that, you know, the war is just thing for him to fight in it and to protect to sell Americans. Does sell it in in a really remarkable way. Ille- news, Oregon. Donald a new Sargon which is the anniversary. His is epic stand. If you will. Days from now. And it's it's incredible story. It focuses around another story. That's really Sargon something called the lost battalion and a battalion of Americans New Yorkers primarily were trapped in the Argonne forest by as they went ahead of their own lines. They were they were surrounded by the chairman's for several days, and the Germans through everything they could against them. And they refused to surrender. It's it's really quite an epic stand in York's unit the eighty second airborne Leme sorry for the airborne division. Yeah. Second division. The sort of relieves some of the pressure and ease pushed in along with other units. Patrol on to sort of take out parts of the railroad position. That's heavily fortified with dozens of machine gun nests and York pushes forward with his men in their mealy. Subjected to heavy fire drought around your keeps pushing forward in eases to crash shot. He's he's earned with a bolt action rifle. And is literally picking off German machine. Gunners. One at a time. And sleaze you know, over twenty. And the Germans realize what's happening. They they send about five men after him, including an officer in York is out of aim munition with his rifle and he pulls out his forty five. Pistol shoots. The last man in the row down in the front man and just keeps going down. And you know, what's really remarkable is short stories. It sounds. So unbelievably kills twenty eight minutes. But they did about ten years ago. They went back use Oregon battlefield archaeology on the spot that you know, your. That's incredible stand. If you will. And they found forty five cartridges over forty of them along with is thirty six and initiated in that exact spot, and you wrote that as he went, you know, he told his men because this is a guy as you said from nouns. In fact, there's a great old movie in which he's portrayed, and they talk about what a correct event it. Oh, it's a great movie. I mean, it's an old movie. It's not I if I remember, right? Who's Gary Cooper in black and white wasn't it. Nineteen forty one and it won a number of awards, and it's really wonderful movie. It's worse. Revisiting listeners out there. Go watch it again, it's great movie. So he's a great strategist as well. 'cause you wrote that all the officers are dead. So he takes command as a corporal. And then when he finishes shooting a bunch of these machine gunners in the head every time a head come up. I'd done knocked down. He said, and then you said he went right down. The position points is forty five of the Germans head and says tell your men to stop firing the German blows a whistle and up and down the line all the enemy soldiers stop firing. They just stop. Stop. And I it's it's incredible. He captures with along with some of the men in his patrol over one hundred and thirty Germans and they marched them back. Miraculously back to American lines. And I wrote a piece of Breitbart on Sunday. We're the commanding general says, well, I hear you actually the whole damn serve an army. Yeah. I got a few. I feel a hundred and thirty two. This is the kind of story that I want Americans to remember because you know, we're used to going to the movies, and seeing, you know, stories of the single man or single woman who can run out there and do amazing feats on his own. But this is a guy who actually did it for real. And as I recall the story because after I watched the movie, and this is a while back year to ago, I went back and read the history the real history the man when he came back. He was kind of surprised that the I think the community built him a house. You know, he was he was not a wealthy guy. Who's who's not even in a guy with a lot of money in his pocket, but his community was very grateful for what he had done. And he got all these offers, you know, Hollywood wanted to see him and everything else. And and he was just a simple guy wasn't he? He was he didn't wanna monetize the stereotypes. And I think that makes him so exceptional. It's not, you know, you look at today where people are constantly trying to you know, they would create a reality show around. This York didn't want that. And I think that that's what makes him exceptional along with that generation of Americans which. One hundred years later in their largely forgotten, but they're gonna capture them in the unknowns with okay this road. And that's why I wrote the book I wanted to let Americans know about this generation and how important it is. And how they changed the world. In fact, I if if if nothing else, I guess, maybe he was why didn't they create a weapon system that was the York sergeant York the. Yeah. The there's an emphasis. Couple of anti aircraft guns on attached to it. So they called the sergeant York recalled that as well. Now, I want people to see this book. Can you sketch out in thirty seconds? What you've done in the unknowns about this story of World War ones. Most decorated heroes the announces multiple stories. It's it's story of the tomb of the unknown soldier, which is was an untold story prior to the book.

"AJ Janet, check and military film producer Kevin Hurst burger in which Kevin tells AJ how exactly he went from via my to a career as a military history and reenactment film producer Kevin you left the army almost twenty years ago. But you were living the rigors of military life long before that. Yeah. Yes. Strange. It's like nineteen years ago. Now, it's hard to believe that I joined the national guard and opportunity to join while I was at the that was a great experience. My join when I was in my second year, it was a bit of an excuse for I could kind of get away from school once a month to go to the drills and two weeks in the summer. It was like a full escape even knows, you know, quote, unquote, working so that was a little bit of enjoyment there get away from BMI for a while, you know, having those several years in the national guard while I was at cadet before I got my commission. I learned a lot, you know, you can imagine being thrown in from from being a cadet. It'd be all of a sudden I'm standing, you know, almost expected act like an office already even though I hadn't had my commission yet working with tubes. And and you know, based quote unquote, commanding meetings were in their fifties. I'm like quite that was being thrown to the wolves. I learned a tremendous amount from lease forty and fifty year old sergeants had been in the military for twenty plus years. It humbled me. I guess you could say a lot of lieutenants and young officers don't win to the military. And I think that they have to show off a little bit. But you know, what? I mean, it's kind of like you don't need to do that. This is a lesson that I learned a very ugly tenant. And and before that a cadet that I bring that I tried to bring into the filmmaking world when I've got a crew of a hundred people standing around and ninety nine degree heat looking at me, really uncomfortable and not wanting to be there. But ready to go to war with me so to speak. What are we gonna do today? But lead me and make the shot happened. And let's get to our long fourteen hour day. I learned to be humble and to listen to those that have been there before me, I learned that it's not about telling them what to do and washing them around. Sometimes it's allowing them to have their voice heard listening to their advice and together coming up with the best solution. I'm obviously responsible for. For the final decision. But I always found it was better to listen. And to learn keep my ears open more than my mouth. And I think that's specially with filmmaking. I can't go into the day. Even though I have to take command of the of the room or take command of the set. I gotta be open to suggestions from everybody. You know, would be an interesting here, or, you know, have you ever thought of and I and I stop and I listened to that. I don't say you're just an extra. You're not important. Why are you even talking to me? I stop I listened to them. I thank them for their input. And I might even use that idea. And then I'll I'll acknowledge that let them know that I use their idea. I think that's an important lesson. I learned I also wearing that at the same time. You do have to be in charge. And you do have to make a decision because people are waiting for you and are looking at you for guidance. So not to be afraid to do that. It might not be perfect and minorities be the right one. You can always sticks that later and change your mind. But you gotta do something. No one being killed knowing being really hurt. But being on a movie set is a lot like the military booed Hollywood is run a lot like the military. The hierarchy is they're very clearly, and you really don't jump ahead. You don't jump over private doesn't go to the major and start bellyaching about things, you go to your sergeant first, and then the sergeant bellyache above and so on and so forth time, you're putting into your day, fourteen sixteen hours, the amount of you know, the fact that your head, and you're you're taking care of a moved around just like in the military are the people that have never been in the military say, well, it's like this very hot very sweating doing things. You don't want always do long days you go on to six days. You've you know, you pray for that time time away. Yeah. There's a lot like. That through Lionheart film works. You've also produced a series called medal of honor the men and the moments now twenty eighteen marks the one hundredth anniversary of sergeant Alvin York's bravery under fire and without spending a dime. Everyone can see that video online part of a piece I did two years ago. I did a series a six part series called the medal of honor on DVD and Blu right now in its bailable on Amazon prime to series telling the story of the medal of honor from the very beginning civil war through modern day, but it's heavily touching on the password. So each episode one of the civil war one World War Two Pacific. What you what you in Europe, completely and war and Vietnam which coverage also some about from the past the curb warranty, and the sergeant York piece of when I was really proud of some some very detailed re-creations of his actions in October nineteen eighteen and using the exact same. That meatless using trying to mimic him his look at the men around him, and what they were wearing on the eighty second division, and you made sure. The right weapon. Could he's known for his weapon. And it is still a debate. Even today of what he was carrying, but we know nineteen Seventy-nine field, and that's what we had failed. And so we put this all together in this DVD that's available and and and as part of the relaunch of of the kind of military history centrists YouTube channel that I've got going on we took that, and we kind of expanded upon and I did a relaunch of just that piece about sergeant York, and we re edited. And I added some new recreation footers I had since then and added a lot of new sound effects and new music and really tried to make a night. Concise say seven or eight minute piece about sergeant York and his action because he is one of the most famous medal of honor winners truly one of the most famous World War heroes Doboy, especially now that we're in the hundredth anniversary of his actions and gone. So so that just came out there just a few months ago. We're really proud of the way that turned out things go. Well, you've already had your first EMMY nomination tell us about that. At I worked with a company in Los Angeles co-worker Hollick productions they do a lot for Discovery Channel American heroes channel. But she she called the military channel did a three part mini series documentary that came out in two thousand fifteen probably American revolution. So we shot in the August.

Virginia summer, we shot the entire American revolution including the Boston massacre, which happened in the freezing cold of Boston in March with fake snow blowing through downtown Petersburg Virginia at Washington Delaware crossing from sweltering ninety five degree heat at night with smoke machines and snow machine. But yes, we did a lot of work lot of look-alikes and battle scenes that the entire battle of Bunker Hill, and this really great stories each was kind of very common soldiers Centric told the whole story the American revolution through these specific stories of these specific men and women African American famous stories and not so famous story through the eyes of the common American that was very successful. They came out in December of two thousand fifteen. And the following year. We were surprised with an EMMY nomination for that show. We'll Kevin you may have left a military nineteen years ago. But it seems the military's just never left you. You're right. It's never far from me the military never far from me. And I never I tried. It never forget that. And keep Kurt soldiers in my mind as well. Try to keep the memory and the service of our soldiers from the past alive in bringing them back to life and color and high definition and recreation so that again, I can bring it to new generation. So that they're never forgotten their stories told forever and ever connecting.

"Happened that brings us to charles remington he's also a fictional character there was a man named mr whitehead that patterson wrote to for assistance in killing the lines himself but he was the district officer in the region not a big game hunter like remington was in the movie and that right there probably tells you how stork the accurate ma much of the movie from here on out is since charles remington 's kind of one of the main characters but we'll come back to mr whitehead in a moment as a little side note you'll notice that when recounting what happened in the movie i'm referring to the term lion singular in the movie at this point patterson didn't know there were two lines and to be honest i don't really know if that's true or not at couldn't find anything that verified that patterson thought that there was only one line at the beginning until seeing the two lions side by side at one time in his book patterson almost always refers to them as the lions from the very beginning plural but that brings up a great point patterson's book called the meaning of salva was published in one thousand nine hundred seven so about nine years after the events took place can you remember everything you did nine years ago to write it down in every detail why can't and therein lies the conundrum of stories like this that relies so heavily on the experiences of only one man stories like this one or others like the remnant lawrence of arabia sergeant york and so on stories that are often conflicted either out of miss remembering honest mistakes or just the desire to make their stories on more exciting than they actually were oh sure there were other people there but not other people who wrote down their stories and oral histories are even more on reliable this is all important to keep in mind because due to the nature.
