"I turned it down. And instead of doing it, I did a thing called two loves. With Jack Hawkins and Larry Harvey, whom I despised. And three people saw the movie. Although it never would I have done given Holly the lightly what Audrey did. So, you know. Well, I guess just as the last thing, two parter, if I may, what's your life like today? Do you still have the hunger that you've always had to act and then part B, many, many years from now when all of us are gone, how would you like people to remember the work and everything that you did? Getting ready to do another movie, working with people on the script. If I can't be creative, I'm in trouble. Writing my own books, and that's probably what I'd like. I would like to be remembered for making it clear that life itself is show business. Everything about what each of us do, we are performing our lives. And we can make a decision how to perform how to dress. What is the wardrobe? What is the makeup? What is the distribution? What is the financing? You know, we're all doing it every day. And I think that's a simple concept that I'd like to be remembered for making it clear. You know? I think you do it better than anybody. So thank you very much. I really appreciate it. Thank you. My pleasure. Thanks, huh. Thanks very much for tuning into awards chatter. We really appreciate you taking the time to do that.

"Right, right? What's the do you remember the first time you heard of terms of endearment? How you heard about it, just what was the first entrance onto your radar? Jim had done a complete script. Sent it to me. I read it. He came to my place in Malibu. He was standing outside the door, and I said, this could be important. So you knew right away. That it would be a great movie or that you had a great part. And what was the toughest part about it? I mean, you have to your character. Yeah. Really? He's a handful. Oh, he's a handful. And absolutely brilliant handful. Yeah. But a handful. But even, you know, I'm thinking to have to age as a character 32 years in the course of two hours, and I know making it, you're jumping all chronologically. Yeah, that's all about makeup in here. That's easy. It's easy. And I know you talked about some of the wigs and stuff where they're aging. You aren't crazy about the way that they age the character, right? I think. Yeah, because she was also dying her hair. So you had to look at the fact they had to make wigs where she hadn't had a touch up. So yeah, I think that was. Oh yeah. Oh my God, right. So when you look back on that experience of making that movie, just is it do you remember it being a happy time, a difficult time? I mean, it's obviously an emotional, tough movie, tough in the sense that it's a lot of sad things that you're dealing with, but could you enjoy the experience of making it? Anything with Jack Nicholson makes me so satisfied. So happy. Oh, my God. I wish he'd work again soon. Yeah. And was Deborah winger or somebody did you guys talk about a handful, never mind, let's not go there. Really? Well, I bet you probably have to spend more time with her on that than anybody, right? On the making of that movie. More than anybody, I don't know. Maybe her handler had, I don't know. Now, when you won the Oscar, I think you gave one of the funniest speeches anybody's given as an acceptance speech. And I just wondered, you know, first of all, was it was there something that was all the more satisfying that you had to wait as long as you did to win and then no, I would rather have won before and then. And then, and then part B, why was it another 5 years before you worked again after terms? Yeah, that's what I was looking at. Are you kidding me? I was surprised 'cause normally they say, you know, the career move is straight. Well, they always tell you that when you win an Oscar can be dooming. Is that your sense that it was it? Did it help or hurt or anything?

"Is it kind of a cosmic thing? Isn't that interesting? It's just for the people that may listen. Jack Lemmon, of course, Jack gilardi or agent for all those years. Jack Nicholson, Jack Black and Bernie, it's crazy. It is, isn't that something? And you seem to good thing I didn't have an affair with Jack Kennedy, but that would have been one. Was that a possibility where you know? No, I was the one he talked to. He was not like that with me. Yeah. I was also thinking that when you sign on when you sign out to do the children's hour, did you were you thinking to yourself, how is this going to be made? I mean, this is coming out at a time when husband and wife couldn't be shown in the same bed together. And here we are dealing with. It's kind of crazy. And Willie, honestly, did compromise it. He cut out some wonderful scenes. Of me, ironing, Karen's hair. Making her clothes and nice packages. Things like that that were showing the real love that Martha had for Karen. And I think he got frightened. And I think that the movie suffered from that and Philip scheuer, who was the film critic for the LA times. I remember the headline of his review. The lesbian said the better isn't that awful. And here we are. In some ways, things have changed a lot in some ways, not a lot. And of course they've changed. But then you think it's a well it's much more honest. Yeah.

"Was when you're going into that? Did you feel that you were ready or confident? I mean, you get so many varying accounts from people who worked with Hitchcock that he made them feel better or he made them feel worse. I wonder what you're. No, he made me his eating companion. Because he knew that well, I don't know if you knew or not, but I was from the chorus with no money. And I had free meals. If I ate with Hitchcock and I gained 25 pounds ahead of the studio called me and said, you're wrecking your career before it even starts. They couldn't match the over shoulders because I was 25 pounds heavier three weeks later. Anyway, with me, I was not the tall in blond goddess type. So I was not influenced by his opinions of what he wanted to do to blond goddess types. Right. So a year later, again, just a year after starting in the movies, you're part of the, I think, to that point, the most star studded movie ever around the world in 80 days. Are you kind of pinching yourself or are you already accustomed to being a Hollywood star at that point? You kind of never get accustomed. At the same time that you feel this is your destiny, you're an alignment with it. It's nothing unusual. I have not been on location. Well, yes, I had been in New Hampshire and Vermont with hitch, but not in Japan and all around the world. And by the way, the sound man on that picture became a friend of mine for the next 50 years. Wow. Yeah. Well, did you ever expect the movie would win best picture? At the Oscars? Well, no, well, after I saw it. Yes. Right. But you Mike Todd, you know, what he was. He was, it was hard to get a beat on anything. He was always three years ahead of schedule and he didn't really sort of flew by the seat of his pants. So you never knew what was really happening. With some camera running, I know that's your first nomination and was also kind of an introduction to this group of folks that you would start hanging out with a lot, right? How did you come to be the sole female in essentially? I don't know. It was a kind of I was there, girl Friday, I would there was no sex at all, although later I had kind of a crush on dean. But I don't know. I cleaned up after them, they could trust me with anything. I never asked them for anything. It was fascinating, wasn't it? That I was that. I don't know why. Well. And I laughed at everything, dean said, because I thought he was so funny. And you seem hard to shock. That's true. That's very true. So was the apartment, though, in some ways, the best part that you had when that up to that point that in the sense that I've always gotten the most felt like you can navigate between tragedy and comedy better than anybody. And here's a part that has that built in and you could run with it, right? Yeah. But you know when we did the apartment, it was we only had 29 pages of script. How's that? Well, because Billy and Izzie didn't know yet what the chemistry between Jack and me would be.

"And I always felt that. And as far as some of the other stuff like the UFOs, for instance, was I read that you read a report at 18 about Truman that kind of sparked your ex. No, I was there. In Arlington, Virginia in 1952, one of the whole UFO squadron buzzed The White House in the capitol. So you saw this? Yeah. And that is scare you. It excite you. What was that? No, I knew what they were. And when I saw that I didn't know where they were from. But as Truman and general standfield Turner, I think. He directed him to come on the television and radio and say to people, all they have to know is they're not from Russia. There you go. Isn't that interesting? They could be from the pleiades, but if they're not from Russia, then that's what they want to know, my God. So you mentioned in your teens starting, I guess, acting. And what was the how did you end up in New York under studying on Broadway? What was the story? Because I was a dancer and you have to go to New York if you want to be a dancer and successful. And as far as it wasn't that good, by the way, really. As a dancer? No. I could flash and dash dash them, but I was not that good, not as good a ballet dancer. As I was the other kind. As far as the pajama game, how did you come to be a part of it? And if you can share, I'm sure you've had to do it more times than you want to remember. But what was the sequence of events that sort of led from being the understudy to catching how well is his attention? Well, it wasn't up to me. The star heard her ankle. I was on, and he was there. And did he immediately? Yeah, he was talking about how? Yeah. He came backstage and signed me. Actually took me to sardis. First good meal I had eaten in a daze years. Years. Had the movies been and even a thought prior to that? No. Not at all. I remember Shirley Jones was in the chorus of me and Juliet with me. That was the show before pajama game. And she had told me in the rest of the course people that she was going to LA to do this musical called Oklahoma. By the way, I had done the subway circuit of Oklahoma when I was 16. Really? And I played the center postcard girl. So I sort of knew what Oklahoma was. Therefore, I knew what ado Annie was. And I said to Shirley, when you get to California, ask, was it Fred zinnemann, who directed them? As Fred's in him, if he needs an 8 O Annie, it's something. So now, your first movie, trouble with Harry, is I wonder what your mindset

"This night took things away from me and I expressed them to you and you took them with you. It made me feel cold. Like if love wasn't for me. I don't believe that. I don't believe that. So the part that always really gets me there is when she says the line about how she put all her romanticism into that one night and she doesn't think she can recapture it. Haack just almost touches her on the leg to try to comfort her in that moment. But realizes that she may not need that in that moment. And even if she does, he's not the guy right now. To give it to her. And he can't touch her. She doesn't even notice that he tries. And as the conversation goes on and she's lamenting more and more what's been lost, how she is in this person she once was, he then goes back at her with, you say all that, but you don't even remember us having sex. And when she says, of course I remember. I melt in that scene just like hawk does at that revelation because there is this kind of friction between them in this scene that proves there's truly something there. Like this movie isn't just going to be a nostalgia trip or about them catching up on what they've been doing in the interim. There is still something between them that has to be reckoned with or it wouldn't stir up those kind of emotions. Yeah, it's the spark scene, right? Where it does take that next step. My number four is coming from one of your mixed bag films, actually. It's Jack Black singing with the car stereo in Bernie. There are a lot of good moments in that movie. You know, it's a link later film that I like quite a bit initially, but it really has only grown on me. This is based on a true crime story, Jack Black plays title character. He's this genuinely sweet, likely gay, deeply religious assistant funeral director in this small Texas town. He ends up befriending a widow played by Shirley MacLaine and that has tragic results. Bernie has, as a character, this guy is just a mystery. You just have constant questions about him. What's underneath this insistently cheery facade? What are his true feelings for Marjorie? That's the McLean character. Basically you're wondering maybe because we know the context, the real world context, but does this guy have a dark side and when are we going to get a hint of it? Well, you would say no. He doesn't have a dark side based on this one single take scene. It's about two minutes long. Bernie's just driving in his car and he's singing along to the hymn love lifted me on stereo..

"And sad and vampire Y it's not healthy at all. And we're able to laugh at it because Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine give these brilliant performances. But it's really brutal when you actually think about the reality of the situation there. So that's her first book. And then her second was called surrender the pink, which is one of my favorites, which is about her relationship with Paul Simon. And it's so relatable and amazing and every girl going through an unrequited love situation should read. It's awesome. And then another one called delusions of grandma, which is a playoff of delusion of grandeur and we all know that. And that one she writes letters to me in her stomach. And she wrote another one about my childhood called the best I love that one, but it's also kind of rough because it's about me and my dad and it's one of those situations where I was thrust into the public eye without wanting to be thrust into the public eye. And I'm like 7 in the book. And there's a lot of true stories in it. And I read it recently. And had to go jump in the ocean and like that and said that for a second. That sounds like it's gotta feel like amazing to have. Yeah. When you want to look at it, but also really hard to look at. Yeah, but it's also traumatic because when I read them, especially that one, I really wish she would have reread them. She could have learned from her stuff, but she really just gave it to an editor and never looked at it again. Wow. And I wish she would have reread it because there's a whole section in that one about her being an abusive mother and how brutal it was for me. And I just about to when I had to go jump in the cold ocean and take a deep breath because I just was so confused that she didn't reread it and didn't stop being an abusive mother..

It will I know was nominee nominations for best actress Meryl Streep. And then I think that Song, too, was nominated for best song, but that's about it. I don't know. I can't remember what else was out that year in 1990. Maybe Pam could help me out, but I don't know what the competition was. But, yeah, I mean, I saw it when it came out, and I just I love that I was one of my favorite films and Shirley Maclaine should've been acknowledged, too, because she was just perfect aren't used perfect because she was so obnoxious, but she was so loved And then she was so talented, but then she had this jealousy thing going on. I mean, there were so many things about her. Her character was just amazing. And and the way that she was portrayed by Shirley Maclaine was absolutely perfect. I like what I like What she said about hell be Mayor. Never let him see. Acre. Was it never let him see your ass in one of those? Yeah, it was. It was a good movie. Okay, We're going to take a break.

"And chief of police. We can't blame him. He had a quite a chore to carry out. He just does a little worried about the somebody may be walking in Disneyland with a shopping bag and what they might have in it. You never know exactly. We were ready for him. The pressures ready both the State Department security, and the Soviet security income in case Disneyland and they were all say I was already factor. We've had a lot of dignitaries down there. He was one of MRs Disney on down in me crucial. She would define it. He didn't go. Well, it's, it's certainly not ever an empty place. So I can understand the security concern. I had, we had different shops, places where we take pictures with crew chef and I had one of my favorite where I lined up at my age submarine say and I be. Nine hundred pointing the lifted crucial around Khrushchev. Here's my Disneyland submarine fleet. It's eight the eighth largest submarine fleet in the world. Is it really? So despite the fact that, you know, there's clearly allowed attention here, the stated official concern is that it would be at as we said, so difficult to protect him in these crou-. They said they could not guarantee his safety, which even the wording of that taking the wrong way through a translator, perhaps, by particularly cantankerous man is used to getting his way almost sounds like a bit of a threat. Yeah. We can't guarantee your safety and he exploded when he found out, we have the quote, and I say, I would very much like to go and see Disneyland. But then we cannot guarantee your security, they say, then what must I do commit suicide. What is it is there an epidemic of cholera there or something, or gangsters taking hold of the place that can destroy me? He left Los Angeles. The next morning in a huff, no doubt, so sure. Sure. Who we can kind of blame for planting this idea in his head who, who wasn't Bob? Hope. Really at that luncheon at townhall where the comment was made by the, the Twentieth Century Fox president. Bob Hope said that it was a lovely place. Then he really should check it out. Come on. Bob Hope causing diplomatic incidents. If you're Congeniality, and then when Khrushchev erupted MRs he was surrounded by these celebrities, and Frank, Sinatra apparently is sounds comical. Apparently leaned over to David Niven. Senator Cruz has wife wanted to rise Nina crew that was more the, the thing and, and his child Sinatra leans over to David Niven and says tell the old broad you and I will take them down there this afternoon. And so, you know, this, this is also one of those things where the guy feels like his social reputations on the line. If you're married, don't you want your spouse and your kid to be happy? But the thing is the State Department did give the thumbs up for his wife and daughter to go to Disneyland, but he couldn't do it and the way he's portrayed in these stories. He sounds like a big man baby where it's like go to Disneyland. And if I can't go, yo can't call, you know, with Ed like he would deny his wife and child, the joys of the happiest place on earth. What a monster. Right. His what we call in today's common parlance. Not a good look. That's an early two thousands turn of phrase, I guess, so when they say they cannot guarantee your safety, and therefore, he cannot go even though other members of his own Toronto, including his family, can we have to understand there's? If not a credible threat to security, the consequences of the Soviet premier dying in the US are huge. Nobody dies at Disneyland Ben right? Think let's go into an episode on that awhile back. We, we could do it on this show. But talking about it's like it's like a myth. I guess the common it's, it's a common internet. Rumor yes, that's right. But the thing is, if Khrushchev did somehow die, even if it was a complete accident. Even if it was just walking down the street and had a heart attack, even if you got to cabinet on space mountain, we would as a country at dare I say, as a species, the much, much closer to some sort of international arms exchange. It's a very tenuous situation and that's why it's like it's weird. Because politics like this on the one hand, you're like it's all for show, but on the other hand, it's life and death wining and dining these. Leaders in, you know, having successful meetings in a sense that they're being respected. And, you know, given the, the five star treatment or whatever. And even this idea of him being denied entry into Disneyland and him having a hissy fit that could have set off an international incident. Right. Yeah. Right. And they were already playing fast and loose, because that, that musical they mentioned apparently Khrushchev was not a fan of that later. He denounced it as pornographic exploitation. Didn't you meet Shirley MacLaine wasn't Shannon yet. Because in the in the musical, he saw Shirley, MacLaine, plenum dancer, and Sinatra plays, a French lawyer, who falls in love with mcclain's character. But the, the, the creek, the crazy thing is just to give you the way the US later saw this Wiley, t Buchanan in the State Department's chief of protocol later, described the choice of showing him this musical as quote be worst choice, imaginable. Yes. The least good thing we could have done first of all, I cannot even begin to imagine Sinatra playing a French person. It's like a did you ever see that John Wayne film, where he tries to play, Genghis Khan. Oh, yeah. Well, that's real. It's a real mobile goodness gracious. Yeah. It was in the conqueror and. Yeah, he, he did that thing. And it, it didn't seem that great when it came out, even even in nineteen fifty-six and spoiler alert. It did not age. Well, we'll let let's see what the musical with Shirley MacLaine Sinatra was called right, Ken. Yes. Can can I have not seen it? But I am interested now that I know that I get to see Frank Sinatra playing a Frenchman. Maurice chevalier ants, but no, Steve shimmy last..

Cancer should only be whispered. Football. Like when you get they just whisper it here that sounds awful aren't really terrible.

I want people step up people. I'm sure people talked about it on plane travel. No one dress up anymore. Everyone. Choosy sweats. Yeah. Yeah. It's annoying. Sebastian talks about that.

Thank you very much. I'm so blowing the doors off is a book full of advice. And some of it is from you directly. Some of it is advice you've received over the years. Can you tell me about the advice? You got from John Wayne when you ran into him at the Beverly Hills hotel. Yeah. Yeah. He I just by Alfie, and I was in in in in Hollywood with nothing to do. I was going to a movie we Shirley, MacLaine it. She was late coming there. And I didn't know anybody so used to sit in the lobby looking for movie saws spotted John Wayne, and he was registered in a hotel Luca be said to be what's your name? K I said Michael Caine he said in that movie Alfie, and he said you got to be a star kid. So should thank you. Thanks very much. They said let me give you some advice. I should. Okay. Yeah. Fine months. He said, we talk talk low talk slow and does say too much. And he looked down at my shoes knows worry suede shoes. And he said a never wear suede shoes. He said never wear suede shoes. I said why not? He said because I just told you you're going to be famous you're going to be a stock it. He said you're going to be taken a p in the jets toilet demand. Next year is going to recognize your turn it. So Michael Cain is gonna pay all over your shoes. So don't wait. What a thing. It must be to have John Wayne tell you you're going to be a star. Hey was stunned in Hollywood. When I went there because I'd been a film fan on my life. But to actually go there and made them, you know, it was amazing. John Wayne is very kind to you. He gives you advice, even near death. Right. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I mean, my wife had pen to scientists and she was in hospital visitor. John Wayne was dying in the next room. And we used to walk up and down the corridor. You were pajamas and addressing gown in a cowboy hat in a hospital. He was dying. You know, and he said never worry about dying cages get on with your life. Just do what you wanna do because we're all gonna die. You know that I said, yes. Yes. John. And we say good bye. And I never saw him again. That's beautiful. That's an amazing story. There's a piece of acting advice that I really loved that you come to a few times in the book. So you're playing a drunk on stage the very beginning of your career. Oh, yeah. I would imagine playing a drunken stage like you would hiccuping and stumbling around, but you get a piece of advice and a piece of direction that you really think shaped your work forever. Right. Oh, I did it. I was in first little theatre version is a stage actor I was playing a drunk. We were rehearsing and came on and started in and said, wait a minute. My what are you doing? I said we'll drunkenness and he said, no, he said, you know, proper drunk a drunk is a man who is trying to speak, clearly and walk straight. You are an actor who's trying to mumble a book crooked and the other one he said to me a little later I seen in a play where I had to cry. And so I was crying. And then again, he stopped me said, what are you doing? I said we're not crying in. He said you're supposed to be a man crying. When a man cries. He will do anything not to cry. You are an actor who's doing anything to try cry. You said you got to run you go to run. And so he told me movie acting in two sentences. It feels like it's it's a much harder. What is required then what you originally doing? And it's almost like you have to act mostly inside of you. Oh, yeah. You you do I mean one of the things you gotta remember when you're rehearsing some some when I was in the theater is to look in the mirror Beethoven rehearsed. You know, an experienced tech said to me said never look at the mirror said never let anyone read the lines your lines back at you to rehearse. He said because you've got to remember when you hear the lines is conversation in a movie, that's the first time you ever heard that man say that. But you just got to know the answer to what he say. That's that's so fascinating. You talk about how you use real incidents from your life as an actor. For example, you use it dark memory from your childhood during World War Two when you want to conjure up h I should be clear. You you grew up in London. During World War Two. Tell me a little bit more about that. Oh, yeah. I was I'm a Londoner six when the war started and twelve when it ended, but I was evacuated a lot of the time. So. I was very lucky because the blitz wasn't continuous. There was always gaps because he they used to change the weapons, you know, to be it'd be incendiary for a while. A. Hi, explosives doodle bugs. And then the last one which will be the most worst one with the rockets. Well, it's an interesting point because you talk about using your experience as a soldier in Korea. When you want to feel fear as an actor. But is that a strange feeling being aware that you need to keep in touch with some of the most traumatic moments in your life in order to do your craft. Oh, yeah. I have an incident. I've never told anybody, including my wife, you've been married forty seven years what I do to make me cry. I think of something in my life, and I burst into tears it. It was so. And it wasn't even horrible or terrible. It was just very very sensitive. That's all I thought you were about to tell me just then now never told us. So. If I wanna be able to do it. But you know, what I mean, it's it's it's a funny thing in order to access this part of your craft. You actually do have to relive most most people would like to bury those away forever. Wait, I'm Stanislavsky method actor you you have to live on what happened in your life. What do you think growing up during the war did for you as an actor? It taught me every experience did you can feel right through a great joy and terrible agony an extreme fear. You know, it was it was terrible agony when the war. Started extreme fear all the way through an incredible joy when it finished. And so everything was in the extreme. I remember someone has a reporter said what what was it about? Oh, you guys in the sixties. But it was is people like me. I was the oldest of the sixties was born in the depression in the thirties. Six to twelve hours in a war. When I was eighteen I sent me defy in Korea. You know, when I got home the fifties in London rationing was still on the place was like a morgue vizo roads. And we were burning coal for heating. So smug every day every single day. There was smoke and disgusting place to be and then when we got to the sixties Khrushchev said, we have an atom bomb. You've got four minutes to live. So I suppose we also got formulas to live. We might as well have a good times. I always say that's how the sixties happened. We all had a fabulous time. Let's funny Roger Daltry from the who. And he said the same thing. He said he grew up with rations. He grew up. He said it made him grow up very short. So when time came that he could live life. He wanted to do as much as he could. But we've all exactly the same and the sixties wasn't mastered by anybody nobody thought of it while it was going on. Nobody wrote about. About it was only written about it was just thousands and thousands of working class. People said I've had enough we went we went out. And did what we wanted to do. The thing about the sixties. Everybody I met who is completely unknown became famous. I remember I was sharing. A fact we my friend Terence stamp, and he had a brother, and I was sitting with him. And I said, what do you want to do with your life? He said I'm going to be a music manager. I said, oh, really, you know, tell hoopla is going to be, you know, twenty year old company boy, ill educated and everything. Would never wait. You went to grammar school. Yeah. Yeah. So I said, oh, yeah. Well, good luck. Forgot about it. He said. My mate, we're going to be we've found an act last night. I said, oh, really what was it cold? He said to who. And I found in a pub I finished because he died recently, Chris Christine. But he died very successful and wealthy, man. Do you feel like the whole class thing, isn't as isn't as heavy as it was. When you first started. Oh my God. No, no, no, no. It's still there. But it has no power. I mean, nobody takes any notice of any judge because there are so or something even you know, take. Anyway, I didn't know whether to call you, sir. Now, everybody goes re Michael doug- used the title. So the book is called blowing the doors off Michael Caines Serb, sir. Michael Caine with. No alright. This book is about the lessons you learned throughout your career. So we've talked a little bit about the sixties, and and you coming up and breaking through and becoming this huge success. What I also find interesting is the later stages so in the nineties, you were looking at retiring from films altogether and your credit Jack Nicholson for bringing back from retirement, right? Yeah. Yeah. That's right. I when when is about sixty sixty one or something like that, I got a script producer send it back. So I don't want to do it. The part was too small, and he send it back saying I did want you to read the lover of what did you read the father? And so I suddenly realized up of a lover anymore. If you're going to be a movie star, you gotta get the girl. You know? Now, I'm going to be the father to go to hell with it. So every tired, and I went to Miami department and spend the Miami in the winter in Miami are stayed in London as well. But I had had a restaurant in London restaurant in in in Miami. And that was a success. And I wrote my autobiography at the end of my career, which was called the elephant to Hollywood because I come from a place in London, cool the elephant and castle. So I thought that was a good elephant to Hollywood. And so they're right in my book, and Jack meatless Lewisham is living the way man paint, we became friends and. Suddenly one day kind of got a script. He says it good good partner for you. You say. I live with blood and wine, and it was a very it wasn't a starring pie. Obviously Jack was the star. So I thought well, I'll do this is very good. I'm what I'd done is. I'd I'd made a mistake every tiring too soon. You know, because I went on to begin the second Academy Award for decide to house rules.
