"He went to the Yale School of drama and like the twilight zones. Fast Leading Man L. Hollyman. He made his screen debut in a Dean Martin and Jerry. Lewis movie called that war with the army in nineteen fifty so he did all of the same shows as usual hardworking actors but there are a couple of notable highlights in his career to he was in the Multi Oscar winning movie Midnight Express in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine and I believe he was actually nominated but didn't win he was also in. Neil diamond's the jazz singer in nineteen eighty and then his last film was the slasher movie. Sleep away camp in one thousand nine hundred eighty three so his brush with Oscar. Success didn't stop and take a job either but sadly nineteen eighty-three was the year that he passed away to the young age of sixty one three days before Simon Oakland. Who Played Captain Beecham? Now I will admit I cannot tell whether his performance sees him going convincingly insane or completely over the top or maybe a bit of both now Mike Allen. Had this very nasal and raspy type of delivery that was just divorcee had and it was a bit of a trademark for him to a degree but while he's speaking in this episode he has these very long scenes where he's hesitantly delivering his lines in a very piecemeal way. And especially the Clean Blu ray audio. We seem to get a lot of mouth noise on the track which is a little uncomfortable to listen to at times but that's not his fault. It's just the way it was so the jury is still out for me with my Callan. Character is certainly very important to the script itself. We were on the surface at night. I was signalmen then. Supposed to put an of a red filter on the The signal otherwise the chaps would've seen as they would have seen the light that were found. I understand I don't know what happened here. I dropped the signal light. Infrared filter fell off. Hey we're waiting for out there. Chat destroyers let us have it could. We have had the story without this character. I think we probably could. The ship could have just came across the sunken submarine. And the bonding starts. And Hey presto this your episode. What's this binding about. It's a creepy sunken submarine. And that's all there is to put. It certainly would have made much thinner tail. I do like that bells Presencia. That is likely causing all of this now. Like several other sailing characters. He has that survivor's guilt and the other vessel might have just passed over. The submarine without incident for Bell made a mistake that may have caused the death of the whole crew. So when he passes here they make themselves known. It's like they're saying you should be down here with those. And in the end he is he jumps into the water. And that's the last we see of him but it was almost the case that things ended quite differently for bell and Martin grams junior documentaries in unlocking the door to television classic he said that in the ending that was almost used bell disappeared into thin air and the solution to the mystery revealed that he was a ghost after the producer. Henchman read the script. He told sailing that the ending should revert to the original. Telly play. He said I believe making bellicose. Throughout will miss defy and confused the audience. I am certain that we would be best off to go back to invasion of the bell story as in the original script that somehow in the scared funk he.

"Because Captain Beach Him and his crew of just set a course that will lead this ship and everyone on it into the twilight zone first broadcast on the tenth of January Nineteen Sixty three written by rod sailing and directed by Perry Lafferty. So it's not a direct to`real outing for Perry Lafferty who also directed in his image and the next episode of season for after this one is also directed by Perry Lafferty. But then that's it. He doesn't direct anymore episodes of the twilight zone so our opening narration. It's fine. We spoke about why these are the way they are in episode with road sailing in front of the cat and instead of in the scene. So there's no point complaining about it is how it is so we have to accept it and move on now before the opening the radiation. We listen to part of scene where Captain Beach. Him played by. Simon Oakland is having some strong words with Chief Bell. Who's played by Callan Now? I really like this as a little character moment for Captain Beach and especially because these military men they need to get things right or the safety of the crew could be risk so quite rightly he's giving chief bell addressing down for not tying about properly but then L. says that he hadn't been feeling well lately and beach him just immediately without hesitation stops telling-off and ask whether he's okay. Has he been to Sick Bay? So this just felt very sailing to me. You know it could be that. He had commanding officers like this. But I think it's also that he was a manor understood that strong leadership should also include compassion. The two things on mutually exclusive. Now we do have quite a large casteel and I will talk about them all. But of course we have to mention captain. Captain Beach Him and he is played by Simon Oakland who is completely believable as a disciplined military man and he was born in one thousand nine hundred fifteen New York with one hundred sixty one credits to his name is hard working actor. Status is a short. And we've seen him before a twilight zone playing to cruise in the replying winkle caper and he has this very hard carved out of Stone Exterior. That makes them perfect for certain types of role. But it didn't actually hit the screens until he was about thirty five years old in one thousand nine hundred fifty but he had paid his Jews as a performer because he was a concert violinist. And then hit the Broadway stage as an actor and when he hit the screen he really did become a hardworking actor so because of this very stand persona that he had he would sometimes cast as villains or more often than not he was a cop or a military man. And there's a moment here that I think really makes a lot of sense when we consider that this a ghost story but these.

"And tells him to leave but then they seem to imply apply that maybe maybe there's some sort of sin nature maybe comes full circle. The whole idea of the path is allegation. Adam and Eve fallen man you know the sin nature of man we all have we all have A. We all just tend to do the wrong thing. Bad thing if push comes to shove maybe that's why Beaumont included this idea or maybe this is early edition. They you know we're all murderers just some control it and others can't so it just it was really interesting to see that it seems as if just the robots sin nature that you took over and try to again kill his creator and again in this case the greater the crater one. I don't know if it's a happy ending. No because like I said you know Allen never asked to be created and when he wants he's created created in. Oh he thinks he's got a good life but you know he finds out that his life's a sham and and you know Walter you know takes over Allen's life and is it a happy ending for Walter and Jessica the girlfriend. She's just kind of a pond in the whole thing. That was kind of a strange for an hour long episode. That was an awful fast relationship with four days. But I guess it played into the end because she couldn't she didn't really really no Allan Slash Walter Anyway so if he acts a little different. I guess you could explain how this could work so overall the of the episode of the season. Four episodes I've probably seen this one. Maybe four times and you know all other classic episodes are probably seen thirty times so obviously not a high on my list but thanks to doing this for the podcast. I now Allah better appreciation for this episode and I will actually come back and watch it again and just see what what inspires me. The next time I watch it so thank you you tom for for making me. Want to check out this episode once again so those are my thoughts and looking forward to thirty five in grave next time. Okay Eh do that. Thank you everyone for. Your thoughts are just caught in before we close because Harold us the question so harold asked what I saw to the new opening credits that the thing is I like them all in different ways book in a way. This is the one that sticks in my mind in most away. Sailing says a word and then there's a crash or something like that and so it's a good one I do like I do like it a lot but then sometimes you you go back to a season one episode anything. Wow does does just a strange beauty about season one's original opening credits as well so they all. We'll have the advantages. I guess but I really liked this one. So That's enough for me. Let's go to Rod serling to find out what's coming up next. And I'll surly the ingredients American destroyer the Pacific Ocean and it goes Lee sound of hammering thousands.

"Know the words to my emails as well but without the greatest seem I've I've heard for you that I've ever heard great that is so cool although we are in danger we haven't take care because we know that Marty Maunsel sooner there on the land there will be there yeah we were reading it wrong and I was listening for his yes here I come to save the the Andy Kaufman bit all yeah makes me laugh yeah it is so funny that is the funniest thing ever release a time on I'm ready Sir Tyrone was good but let's go for it and say hi room good morning good morning Morgan good morning Mister Becker no back be back not not to give you one I'm glad you guys are are ready for me because I'm not ready for me okay well first of all what first of all I trust world going to church this morning an hour earlier yes well you know Morgan knows why well first of all you know who are wonderful Morgan to have been a baby boomers so we could have grown up during all these fantastic cartoons that usually they can't relate to truly right best time of TV was when we grew up I'll say this man who's thirty six he grew up with Doug Aaron Rugrats and ran in the NB and they had some pretty catchy tunes as well his favorite was a teenage mutant ninja turtles and Hey they stagger the phenomenon or you know on on you know they recreated the flinstones they recreated Johnny quest but they took the violence on the both of them and then it was there was kind of like kissing your sister was worth watching violence in installments it also ball dropped on Fred's fort that that would be the extent of violence within the plot line of the flinstones or the TV set over burning said okay yeah there's some stuff from the early ones well first of all now Morgan Morgan knows what I called your because Dodsworth up I'm gonna ask about Dodsworth the cat but first lippy the lion and hearty Harihar okay now yes No board the voice for who was the one that was always in that car to who was the one that was always going hardy how are you're thinking of would be the line right and that was that dogs I think that was a was a dunce Butler character hardy was was now my dear own old leave be there are bigger and you know when when would be a lie and was always going hardy how are are you know I didn't write owned like like better and actor well what is his name Simon Oakland if you knew who veteran actor Simon was always played a hot here yeah that sounds just like Simon Oakland it's doing that I don't think why was it may sound a little yeah they were they were always they were what they did take us you know famous performers usually ones from the thirties or forties or something and they and they would clearly you know do characters like that whether it's top dad was doing bill global and spread Flintstone was Gleason and you know a it's it's since you know the the you know third lar was use you know the and the they they would they would mimic those great performers because what unique voice I attribute site you know and Simon Oakland was most he was all over episodic TV but he was most famous for on the night stalker with German Gavin he was is bars I mean they couldn't take anybody that recent I don't think because they would have gotten that themselves second like later on they would use instead of doing a call lands they actually hired all live you know to do right the walls you know or something and so yeah so I mean I'm not disputing you know your your your theory there but well you know I could I could just see Simon Oakland going hardy how you know I think Libby was trying to be on doing this off the top of my head I'm not looking at anything I just cannot imagine his voice again I think you might have been trying to be Joey around Europe member Joey brown yes Morgan yes you know if you think about it with that is that you know that hardy are it's a great show you something Josie brown would say and what you'd say that that's a thought that I am that sounds like something they would do something like that let Hanna Barbera which aren't as big as two weeks ago and I was on Joe E. brown street or Avenue I didn't know there was such a thing yeah almost every former firm the fifties indoor into the sixties has a street and Avenue names for them in this I'm off subject I'm sorry what a no problem I just hi room where else would you want to go well that's alright Morgan because I'm just sitting here listening to a little piece of history about last Vegas okay well if they know not now there's this other cartoon I want to know anything and everything you can tell me about dogs worth well the only thing I can tell you that dogs were to the following that we be in Morgan went over on the phone book the the other day we were talking about how that it's Sheldon Leonard you know Sheldon Leonard the character actor slash producer yeah a bit about but you know him using Bowery boys movies in special that he was the voice of dots were and that's unusual I mean I but I think he was well known enough it's funny you get you know even get credit or you just did it because it was a fun thing to do but they didn't make many cartoons with dogs with I'm not on him not looking into the box I believe we said they're made to I think maybe three and I believe in government can sing was the director of those cartoons he's of course the the guy who brought us foghorn Leghorn and the Tasmanian devil in particular amongst other great characters and you know they tried out different stuff all the classic will lose the chance of re when there's so many of them as we all know there's so many whether it's Tweedy even Bugs Bunny all of them started off as a one shot idea in a particular cartoon and it was popular enough to date we find it and revise that brought it back and they would they would do that was a common saying you know one of the last of the stars was speedy Gonzales him first appearances one thousand at the looks nothing like the character we now and they would refine it may bring it back different directors cut try their hand at it my point is is that the odds worth was one of many that didn't make it to the you know the pantheon of the big stars but but you know was was losing you know using a few cartoons and you know you can see samples of that article so Margaret a Looney Tunes affect the fact that even the Tasmanian devil or Marvin or you know let's see and I'm sending over the G. some of those characters only had like three four five cartoons it during the golden age we we think of them classic they were just tried out for a couple of cartoons and didn't quite make it for some reason dot org obviously you mentioning it and Morgan telling reminding me about the character you know it's just not what I hear a lot of people talk about is not you know you've got a good look I enjoy those cartoons but you just don't hear about him and saying tones you know that everybody remembers Michigan J. frog was only in one cartoon has lived for ever since that one cartoon many key spearheaded the WB network for a while well now is like pretty much practically the only way they brought him back link actually Chuck Jones made a second cartoon with the character late late in his life which is really hardly anybody knows about it it's out there it's called another fun evening but but you know was there and there's some characters that were very popular that now I'm going off on a tangent here but more my favorite cartoons of all of a loony toon cannon is is the it's called up talking I'm sorry good times I'd but it's the one with the Pussycat and Marc Anthony and and that particular issue so late I can't remember the name and I know the name of an old company while we talk but they actually made like two or three sequel so that most people don't even know that first one is so good and you think of it is it basically is a one shot you can have those characters on a series you almost want to cry when Marc Anthony thinks the Kitty his varied into a cookie and the the nameless housewife gives him the cookie and it takes eight to star Carlson just hugs it and looks at the cookie longingly I think he wanted cry right right I need to remind you the title which is feed the Kitty that that cartoon I hate to do this I have to take a break Tyrone and you wanna hold or was there there well I just wanted to say there I remember when this bulldog was he was gonna ambush Dodsworth from behind the fence and then when they went behind the friends you know dollars worth or slam and the bulldog on the ground repeatedly over and over and over again any Dennis in his most favorite saying was yeah I should not have done it yeah sure not a done a while he's beating up hold on you know you have your shouldn't have done it they came from every Costello I think there was a line in one of their movies but let me take my break anti room thank you for the call okay Morgan I kept my word to you did I not yes to the all right now is trying to keep there you go and Carl you hang on we will get to you after these messages time and temperature of BC one forty eight

"Cleveland plain dealer since nineteen ninety nine is also an actor director he often plays Mark Twain and Charles Dickens and production stage by the largely literary theatre company the touring troupe he founded back in two thousand and two with his wife actor actress Sarah showman and he's an adjunct professor at Kent State University he teaches two classes each semester reviewing film and TV and vampires on film and television and his list of many books includes the night stalker companion the night stalker chronicles the night stalker case book a bloodlines and everything I need to know I learned on the twilight zone mark to win SIAC welcome to coast to coast AM how are you Hey Richard good to be talking to you again likewise I was talking earlier about the remembering back to nineteen seventy two that that made for TV movie that's it sort of started it all for it for the night stalker series but what was your first do you remember your first encounter with a vampire on TV or film well it would be both because it was a film shown on TV when I was seven years old the ed wood started it all for me basically was a movie called Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein dear old WPIX channel eleven in New York show that when I was seven years old and I had never seen anything that fell into the heart around before that I had seen a lot of comedy teams because that's what they gave my generation because there is no Nickelodeon there was no Disney Channel there is no change in the stuff the specifically geared for kids except for like captain kangaroo and stuff like that so they gave us the three Stooges they gave us laurel and hardy they gave us Abbott and Costello so when that movie aired when I was seven years old I was there for the editing Castel half I reviewed in Frankenstein just came along for the ride I didn't even know what Frankenstein was but in the middle of that film is download go see playing their counteract you live for only the second time on film and you know people think that he played it forty fifty times on film or something but he he only played it twice in the original nineteen thirty one Dracula and then in nineteen forty eight and he's just magnificent in this that I commend that performance put me under the spell of vampires it put me into the spell horror in a turn me into we we didn't have the term back then horror kid monster kit we we we we we have that term now we we are for to each other is monster kits beat the kids who grew up on this stuff so that was what turned me into a monster kid at that age you mind my next birthday I received the Aurora model for of of of Dracula yes look like we'll go see and I was off to the races at that point and I was consuming anything that came along I was scouring the the TV listings for any old universal horror film in the fifties monster movie anything anything that would that would do it was was it was in there and if something came along on TV like The Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits or dark shadows I was there so the the nineteen seventy two the original the night stalker movie on ABC I mean that's set records at the time a you know this this vampire terrorizing Las Vegas is his victims were Las Vegas show girls and prostitutes and of course Carl coal shack so is is kind of a skeptic and then he's suddenly you know we have eventually comes around to believing yes it is a vampire and of course all of the of the authorities are in denial and and trying to you know keep a lid on this thing but that was so successful what was it about it that that made it so popular well I I think a lot of things were you I would you know you have for go back to the original story which was written by a Jeff rice and Jeff was the reach the reporter journalist in Las Vegas and Jeff wanted to write about lot of what he knew about Las Vegas and you have to remember was saying it was a very different town than it is today back then this was a very mob controlled town with the five major casinos they were all controlled by organized crime it was a very buttoned downtown it because of the control and it was a very corrupt town and just want to write about I mean now the allies Vegas is like Disneyland with gambling it's it it it's it's almost a family cap and it's it's corporations own everything but back then very different place and just wanted to write about that so he decided to write about it metaphorically and the any right about the corruption metaphorically so he said of the empire story in the middle of Las Vegas and he makes the hero a hard nosed almost a throwback character character goes back to the server in nineteen thirties newspaper comedies that kind of character that would be played by Clark Gable or Fredric March at the cut the Gavin get me rewrite sweetheart type the characters Damon Runyon yeah and you know right on the front page and you know so the subject came up with this whole idea of kind of combining Dracula with a front hitches you know Hollywood love high concept if you're gonna reduce night stalker the high concept I guess that's how you would do it but then you know Darren McGavin comes along he just makes this character soul alive such a character of life and I think one of the reasons that the night stalker worked as well as it did was it was presented in a very tasty I almost like it was actually happening which was a device by the way the the the kinda borrowed from Dracula that's how Bram Stoker wrote Dracula you read Dracula and it's it's all diary entries in letters and newspaper clippings in it it's like reading a record and so I will actually think this this is happening this is actually happening then when you watch night stalker it had the feel of of a greedy new are story and you follow this character and because the character doesn't believe in vampires when it starts and he doesn't want to believe in vampires the only reason he comes to believe in vampires because he has to because there's no other conclusion he sees it and he has to accept it and so you have to accept it as you're watching this and I think one of the reasons that that night stalker I had so much appeal was that the kind of combined three things which was it was a horror story was your basic Dracula type a horror story of the empire on the loose in a major city distract you really but it was also work is kind of a detective new or type of thing in the end that the fit me Gavin very well because he had played Mike hammer it is here he was he was known for kind of playing detective roles and it is nice Tucker was also kind of a mystery to supernatural mystery but Koscheck acts like a detective on the case right he works as a horror and it works as a detective and that it works is a comedy because it's a very funny thank you there is a lot of comic relief especially the interplay between him and Tony Vincenzo his long suffering editor played by someone Simon Oakland that was a terrific chemistry those two had and it continues because he and and so I Oakland are in every story nice cover story the two movies and all twenty episodes and that relationship continues and and you just cannot have coal shack without Tony Vincenzo so it that's exactly right but you know you also have to realize Richard that nobody saw this coming when you talk about how successful this is and how it broke ratings records ABC didn't think that was going to happen they didn't see this coming they didn't even particularly wanted to have because ABC within the business of of movie of the what we called movies of the week back then right and they had a very prestigious movie which aired in October of nineteen seventy one call Brian so which was about the Chicago Bears and the friendship

position it was a very moving sale it was a very distinguished movie and everybody knew Brian song was going to win all sorts of enemies in all sorts of the claim and it did it also set the record for TV movies ratings when it aired in the fall of nineteen seventy one it held that record for all of about two months and then the night stalker aired in January of nineteen seventy two and smashed the

Costello half I we deliver Frankenstein just came along for the ride I didn't even know what Frankenstein was but in the middle of that film is download go see playing to the pound Dracula for only the second time on film and you know people think that he played it forty fifty times on film or something but he only played it twice in the original nineteen thirty one Dracula and then in nineteen forty eight and he's just magnificent in this the woman that performance put me under the spell of vampires it put me under the spell horror in a turn me into we we didn't have the term back then horror kid monster kid we we we we we have that term now we we are for to each other's monster kids be kids who grew up on this stuff so that was what turned me into a monster kid at that age you mind my next birthday I received the Aurora model for of Dracula yes look like we'll go see and I was off to the races at that point and I was consuming anything that came along I was scouring the the TV listings for any old universal horror film in the fifties hold a monster movie you anything anything it would would do it was was it was in there and if something came along on TV like The Twilight Zone or the outer limits are dark shadows I was there so the the nineteen seventy two the original the night stalker movie on ABC I mean that's set records at the time that you know this this vampire terrorizing Las Vegas is his victims were Las Vegas show girls and prostitutes and of course Carl coal shack you know is is kind of a skeptic and then he's certainly you know we have eventually comes around to believing yes it is a vampire and of course all of the of the authorities are in denial and and trying to you know keep a lid on this thing but it was so successful what was it about it that that made it so popular well I I think a lot of things were you I would you know you're for go back to the original story which was written by a Jeff rice and Jeff was the reach the reporter journalist in Las Vegas and Jeff wanted to write about a lot of what he knew about Las Vegas and you have to remember was Vegas was a very different town than it is today back then this was a very mob control town with the five major casinos they were all controlled by organized crime it was a very buttoned downtown is because of the control and it was a very corrupt town and just want to write about I mean now you need a Las Vegas is like Disneyland with gambling it it it it's it's almost a family cap and it's it's corporations own everything but back then very different place and just wanted to write about that so he decided to write about it metaphorically and any right about the corruption metaphorically so he said of the entire story in the middle of Las Vegas and he makes the hero a hard nosed almost a throwback character characters who goes back to the server in nineteen thirties newspaper comedy that kind of character that would be played by Clark Gable or Fredric March at the cut the Gavin get me rewrite sweetheart type the characters even Runyon yeah and you know right out of the front page and you know so so Jeff came up with this whole idea of kind of combining Dracula with the front page you know how we would love high concept if you're gonna reduce night stalker the high concept I guess that's how you would do it but then you know Darren McGavin comes along he just makes this character soul alive such a character of life and I think one of the reasons the the night stalker worked as well as it did was it was presented in a a very tasty I almost like it was actually happening which was a device by the way that they the kind of borrowed from Dracula that's how Brom stoker rode Dracula you read Dracula and it's it's all entries in letters and newspaper clippings in it it's like reading a record and I actually think it with this this is happening this is actually happening then when you will watch night stalker it had the feel of of a greedy new are story and you follow this character because the character doesn't believe in vampires when it starts and he doesn't want to believe in vampires the only reason he comes to believe in vampires because he has to because there's no other conclusion he sees it and he has to accept it and so you have to accept it as you're watching this and I think one of the reasons that the night stalker I had so much appeal was that the kind of combined three things which was it was a horror story was your basic Dracula type a horror story of the empire on the loose in a major city Strack really but it was also work is kind of a detective Newark type of thing in the end that is it Gavin very well because he had played Mike hammer in this year he was he was known for kind of playing detective rolls and it night stalker was also kind of a mystery to supernatural mystery but Koscheck acts like a detective on the case right he works as a horror and it works as a detective and that it works is a comedy because it's a very funny movie comic relief especially the interplay between him and Tony Vincenzo is long suffering editor played by someone Simon Oakland that was a terrific chemistry those two had and it continues because he and and sigh Oakland are in every story nice cover story the two movies and all twenty episodes and that relationship continues and and you just cannot have coal shack without Tony Vincenzo so it that's exactly right but you know you also have to realize Richard that nobody saw this coming when you were talking about how successful this is and how it broke ratings records ABC didn't think that was going to happen they didn't see this coming they didn't even particularly wanted to have because ABC was in the business of of movie of the what we called movies of the week back then and they had a very prestigious movie which aired in October of nineteen seventy one called Bryant's on which was about the Chicago Bears and the friendship between gale Sayers and Brian piccolo the the broke the NFL's color bar if you will they were the first black and white roommates on the road and they were friends they were rivals for the same

WPIX channel eleven in New York show that when I was seven years old and I had never seen anything that fell into the heart around before that he had seen a lot of comedy teams because that's what they gave my generation because there is no Nickelodeon there was no Disney Channel there is no change in the status specifically geared for kids except for the captain kangaroo and stuff like that so

"The thing is I've been in journalism for forty years. I'm getting ready to retire. I worked at the Elliott examiner right before it folded, Dan, we go back into in the in the more look at the pictures, and the, the black Dahlia, and all the all the stuff and I talked to veteran reporters and both of them said, first of all, they, a lot of people knew they thought they knew who killed the black Dahlia, which was the basis of the true confessions movie, but also the if you look at Manson, the only reason one of the reasons why they got caught. They might not have gotten caught except for Susan Atkins shooting, her mouth off. They had a lot of a lot of chances to the gun. There for like, eight months. Right. Yeah. That was that was held her actually. Yeah. It's really true. Because the family who had found the weapon head turned it into the local police department but nobody ever bothered to let that you know, that task force. No that that gun had been turned in. Right. But right near the, the mansion and it took a long time for that to happen. So. Yeah. Great point on that John and there is, you know, isn't just the fiftieth anniversary. I think although that's obviously a part of it. But there is something that the idea of the hippie, the traveling band of killer, hippies was its own trope that started in the late sixties and lasted for quite a while. That was really, you know, sort of focused and in, nobody thought that hip up until that point everybody thought hippies raw, you know, peace love, and understanding and suddenly, here's the story of the of a hippie family that worse murder that was murderous and that changed everything. Also that call. The fear of halts in this ID that which I think, took sort of the hippie living into a very disturbing direction. Yeah. Maybe that also accounts for part of the popularity where all these different platforms are doing a Manson revisit is that, that does tie into something, which is still very current like the whole Nexium story of the, the head of the sex leader, right? Branding, women. It's like I reading about that when he was coming out, and it was, it's, it's hard to believe that's real life, that it's not, you know, conceptional narrative because, because, you know, Livia Benson did deal with something very similar to that in one of the episodes. Remember that go to a first time caller lying? Charles is in Jacksonville on coast to coast, a m go ahead. Charles, good morning. Y'all. Remember there, so called the night stalker love culture back coal, check the nights longer. Detective work. There was an episode where he had to bad way zombie. That's true. Say that back in the savvy youth. Right. Year to stumble into Kentucky stop that he did a lot filming. The, the detectors, you know screenplay beers. And right now, you're exactly it's a great example because not only so culture, too, is sort of an outsider, he didn't dress. Well me always suit was always rumpled and a little dingy. He wasn't. He wasn't the editors Simon Oakland. I think was the editor he was always on the outs with his boss. He was always broke. He was always, and yeah. He battled zombies in that way that Dahlia, you mentioned about it being more focused on, on voodoo as a religion so zombie nod as either of the, the George Romero's, Mbeki's, or the or the, of the World War, Z's ambi-, but rather almost the nineteen thirties zombies, or the samba of Johnny quest, or something like that. Fascinating. Yeah. I've never watched the show. Oh, really? Oh, cultural nights, Docker, owes excellent. It was it was it was an ABC Tuesday night movie of the week or something like that. So they, they, they had, like three or four different ninety minute versions of culture, and then and he was always getting fired by his newspaper. So he traveling around the country working for different newspapers, but he, he, he was the only believer in the paranormal and so he would investigate a ghost or he would investigate these other stories that nobody else would touch and and and then they turn it into a weekly series. I think it lasted for like two years with the Darren mcgavin but. File over say. Yeah. That would not surprise me at all. So is this show, by the way? Chris Carter, always credited coast to coast, always an fact, one of his characters very art Belge character, which you gotta love. Right. So wildcard line. Cliff is in rolling hills on coast to coast AM cliff. Yes. In first of all, I'd like to say the u are always a breath of fresh air, and I always tune in when you're air, appreciate that. And. Your. Your reach never exceed your grass. I wish that were true. No. That's not true. Fooling everybody just have such a wide. Do of everything it's just a little well they love to love to read things. I don't know about. And so every time I get a chance. So what, what didn't we cover tonight? Cliff. Well, pretty much everything. No. My question for Dahlia would be. About the red lipstick murders, having a couple of weeks after the black I say, you know, Dalia is the national flower of Mexico. Okay. So. Welcome to coast to coast. My graph is not as here, but I'm impressed. But tells about the red lipstick murder. Well it happened couple of weeks after it was kind of brushed under the rug. And same way was a woman at. Really, didn't choose an active or involved with Hollywood necessarily but. Murdered and. That was a big story for like a day. And then it went away. And it was. There were trying to bring it into in the same purview with the black Dahlia. Different. They couldn't could make the Joe. It was really heavily covered. At first and then. This one away. Cliff, you're I'm getting a weird echo. So I'm going to put you on hold here. So I can hear Dahlia. But that I, I didn't know about the red lipstick murder. I've heard about forgotten about it. Just called ballistic, martyr. Quick. Start the Redmond stick murder is actually a homicide case in the LA Noir, video game. Oh. I mean obviously there clearly making a reference sure because there's a victim, that's a mutilated Evadne beaten, and there's a message written let sick and that what happened with the lipstick martyr, which happened a couple of weeks after the black Dalia where they found the body that had been beaten up, and that had been written on with sticks. And they at first I thought maybe it was connected to the black Dahlia that kind of the caller was saying that, that didn't really pan out. But I think it was sort of testament to this shit that sort of Hollywood had this seedy underbelly and that Hollywood had did sort of dangerous and ugly side, which does. That's not a that's not fiction. Well card line Marian is in snowflake. Arizona coast to coast AM Marian. Hi, thank you for taking my call in, and tell you, even though these women are type propellers Marilyn Monroe was kind of in the same era. And I always thought that pay or bore of possible worthy investigation if it was something more nefarious, gene. Supergun Inger Stevens. Yeah. I Pol judge, it still remember her name, and I never saw the movie that clean the damn Leah or whatever. Oh, right. Yeah. The tragic murder of Adrienne Shelly. All of these have the similarity being that. Some were thought either as a drug overdose. Or as an intentional suicide. Right. Right. But, but then the undercurrent of that was no, it was actually made to look that way. And they got to the killer got away with it. In the English. Stephen sing is still fascinating to me. She was so such an amazing actress and her career was doing great. And then and then boom has gone. Well, then you also get into all the conspiracy theory where, you know, the F B I signed to bring Jean Sebert down and. Again, the, the layers and layers of corruption when you lift up the rock and all the cockroaches around. Yeah. And, you know, so we talked about the power of, of Hollywood in getting away. I'm still say I mean there are executives that we know now historically where they if they didn't get away with murder. They certainly got away with covering up a murder and, and, or other, you know, horrible acts done by artists or to control artists, and that, that, you know, that, that, that narrative maybe has been sort of switched over to the whole rap culture and the control of the, you know, the, the east coast, and the west coast, hip hop. King kingpins who use, you know, guns and puting and all sorts of ticking troll, the artists, and occasionally get busted for it and then also have to be covered up for it and. They have the power to be able to do that. And you have all the Scientology story two. That's right. Yeah. A parallel to the Hollywood power struggle. Andrea is in Washington. Missouri on coast to coast AM for Dahlia. Schweitzer. Go ahead. Andrea. Hi. When I think about a female private investigators. I think of Nancy drew and Carmen sandiego. I have. I promise you that Nancy drew played a very big role in my book. Yeah. Yeah. We didn't talk about it, but she mentioned briefly at the very beginning, but yeah, what about Nancy drew for you have? Did you one of those characters at his never quite played as well? On the small screen or the big screen as the as she does in the in the youth young adult novel series. Do you think? Near the caller, either I well, they're, they're, they're bringing new Nancy, drew TV theory, generally, we're going to be able to see if it works in twenty nineteen I saw the last was Emma Roberts. Right. Who did? I thought that Nancy drew was pretty good. The book because that movie said in LA. So it's perfect. That's right. Actually, I just funny. You mention that I forgot. But that's where, you know, in, in the case of, of Nancy drew, as a, you know, this, the counter to the hardy boys, even the hardy boys never quite. I mean, I know we there was a brief kerfuffle about the hardy boys on TV for a while, but it's never had the same effect. And I think those novels are very that were great to read is kids, but somehow, you know, the characters were famous than than actual any product. Starring them, you know, east of the Rockies Melissa is in South Carolina on coast to coast AM, Melissa. I have a great old book that I'm not pretty mystique for years and Wade into good movie as well. I have a couple of canters after your haulers. Will I saw an article about her years ago?

"Reporters detective work. No. There was an episode where he had to battle as on. That's true. With all say back in the seventies stealing from Boondi. Right. Basically those where year to stumble into Taty stop this zombie that he did a lot. You know, fill in the, the detectors you screenplay loaned, the reporter and know your exact the rates are great example, because not only culture, too is sort of an outsider, he didn't dress, well meal suit was always rumpled and a little dingy. He wasn't. He wasn't the editors Simon Oakland. I think was the editor he was always on the outs with his boss. He was always broke. He was always, and yeah. He battled zombies in that way that Dahlia, you mentioned about it being more focused on, on who as a religion. So Zambia, not as either of the, the George Romero's, ambi- or the. Or the, of the World War Z's on these, but rather almost the nineteen thirties, zombies, or the psalm of Johnny quest, or something like that. That's fascinating. Yeah. I've never watched the show. Oh, really? Oh. Coal check nights Docker owes excellent. It was. It was it was an ABC. Tuesday night movie of the week or something like that. So they, they, they had, like three or four different ninety minute versions of culture back, and then he was always getting fired by his newspaper. So is traveling around the country working for different newspapers, but he, he, he was the only believer in the paranormal and so he would investigate a ghost or he would investigate these other stories that nobody else would touch and and and then they turn it into a weekly series. I think it lasted for like two years with the Darren mcgavin but. Carter who created the X files over there saying, yeah, that would not surprise me at all. So is this show, by the way? That that's an old thing. Chris Carter, always credited coast to coast, always in fact, one of his characters very art Belet character, which you gotta love. All right. So. Wildcard line. Cliff is in rolling hills on coast to coast AM cliff. Yes. In first of all, I'd like to say that you are always breath of fresh air. And I always tune in when you're on the air that and. Your. Your reach ever, exceed your grass. I wish I were too. No. That's not true. Fooling everybody you just have such a wide. View of everything. It's just a little. Well, I love to love to read things. I don't know about. And so every time I got a chance so what didn't we cover tonight? Cliff. Well, pretty much everything. No. My question for Dahlia would be. About the red lipstick murders. Having a couple of weeks after the black, I let me say, you know, Dalia is the national flower of Mexico. Okay. So. Welcome to coast to coast. My grass is not as tiptoe here. But time I'm impressed tells about the red lipstick murder. Well it happened couple of weeks after it was kind of brushed under the rug. And same way was a woman at. Really, didn't choose an active or involved with Hollywood necessarily but. Murdered and. It was a big story for like a day. And then it went away. And but it was. They were trying to bring it into in the same purview with the black Dahlia. Different. That they couldn't could make the jump. It was really heavily covered at first and then. This one away. Cliff, you're I'm getting a weird echo. So I'm going to put you on hold here. So I can hear Dalia but I didn't know about the red lipstick murder, or I've heard of I've forgotten about it. I think it was just called ballistic martyrs. Because quick start the Redwood. Stick murder is actually a homicide case in the LA Noir, video games. Oh, I think I mean obviously there clearly making a reference sure..

"This is fun. I'm enjoying where the conversation is going. Let's, let's get to some people who were hanging on the longest I this hour. And Pat, is in Minneapolis east of the Rockies on coast to coast AM, Pat. Partly are, are drug addicts who used to be so nice and family and friends and workers and youthful, nice people. And now they're all wrecked up in stinky. And then Jesus, he many times is directed people on the placebo effect. By telling them, it's not just me. You're safe. You're believe has saved you in Helier. He said that many times. Pat, I think you're going to last night show. We were talking about the placebo effect, but we're not talking about this now. This obvious on the that's an interesting thought on zombies in terms of Hartley, apparently hit. No, no. I think that's interesting idea that that you could almost make meth comparison something about fatty arbuckle. Yeah, go ahead Jerry at the end of his second trial when they gave they the verdict not guilty. They made a special request to make a public statement about what fine person he was, and what a shame. It was that his reputation had been dragged completely ruined. Fair point. Thank you pet so Dahlia interesting, though, I wanna go back to what she said about zombies and drugs. I think that it's a good point. That it might represent the kind of the mess thing that people the, the bodies that have become we see those mugshots of people and they almost look you know, they looked like zombies in the mugshots when they're being arrested after the seventeenth time for meth possession or something. They've also been served stripped of their soul. Right. And that they're kind of just moving, you know, for with only one purpose, and, and that's you know, like zombie wants brains the meth addict, just but that the that the sullen cheeks popping is that, that might you know, they're sort of this may be an unconscious connection to the method democ that was that could account for part of the rise of the zombie stories as well. John is in Nebraska on a wildcard line on coast to coast, AM, John. Hello, hey. Yeah. Go ahead. From Long Beach. From the that, they, they grabbed the wrong way we hang hang on, John. They grabbed the wrong, I called for John from Nebraska on wild one, your John, from Long Beach on wild three, I'm happy to take your call, though so John from Long Beach on wild three Manson family. You had a thought on that. Join you on your on your other incarnation on this station on. Glad to have you back to the thing is I work. I've been in journalism for forty years. I'm getting ready to retire. I worked at the LA herald examiner right before it folded, Dan, we used to go back in the in the in the mortgage. Look at the pictures and the, the black Dahlia, and all the and all the Manson stuff and I talked to veteran reporters and both of them said, first of all, they, they a lot of people knew they thought they knew who killed the black Dahlia, which was the basis of the true confessions movie, but also the if you look at Manson, the only reason one of the reasons why they got caught. They might not have gotten caught except for Susan Atkins shooting, your mouth off. They had a lot of they have a lot of chances to the gun sit there for, like, eight months. Right. You know, that was that was held with her, actually. Yeah, it's really true. Because the family who had found the weapon head turned it into the local police department but nobody had. Ever bothered to let that you know, that task force. No that that gun had been turned in right right near the, the mansion and it took a long time. You know, for that to happen. So. Yeah. Great point on that John and there is, you know, isn't just the fiftieth anniversary. I think although that's obviously a part of it. But there is something that the idea of the hippie, the traveling band of killer, hippies was its own trope that started in the late sixties and lasted for quite a while. That was really, you know, sort of focused and in, nobody thought that hip up until that point everybody thought hippies raw, you know, peace love, and understanding and suddenly, here's the story of the of a hippie family that works murder that was murderous, and that changed everything. Also that calls. The fear of colts in this idea that I think, took sort of the hippie living into a very disturbing direction. Yeah. Maybe that also accounts for part of the popularity where all these different platforms are doing a Manson revisit is that, that does tie into something, which is still very current like the whole Nexium story of the, the head of the sex leader, right? Branding, women. It's like I reading about that when he was coming out, and it was, it's, it's hard to believe that's real life, that it's not, you know, can sectional narrative because it because, you know, Libya Benson did deal with something very similar to that in one of the VU episodes, though, short dead. Remember that Ariella Goto first time caller lying. Charles is in Jacksonville on coast to coast AM. Go ahead, Charles. Good morning. Y'all. Remember, the so-called the night, stalker love culture, back coal tech the nights longer. Reporter did -tective more. No. But there was an episode where he did had to battle as on the that's true that we go back in the seventies from Boondi. Right. Basically those were year to stumble into Kentucky. Stop this zombie but he did a lot. I you know, the, the detectors, you know screenplay bone two years, reporter and know your exact rates are great example, because not only culture, too is sort of an outsider, he didn't dress. Well me always suit was always rumpled and a little dingy. He wasn't. He wasn't the editors Fave, Simon Oakland, I think was the editor he was always on the outs with his boss. He was always broke. He was always. And yeah, he battled zombies in that way that Dahlia, you mentioned. About it being more focused on, on voodoo as a religion, so zombie, not as either of the, the George Romero's, arby's, or the. Or the sambas of the World War Z zombies, but rather almost the nineteen thirties zombies, the zombies of Johnny quest, or something like that. Fascinating. Yeah. I've never watched the show. Oh, really? Oh culture nights, Docker owes excellent. It was. It was it was an ABC. Tuesday night movie of the week or something like that. So they, they, they had, like three or four different ninety minute versions of culture back, and then he was always getting fired by his newspaper. So he is traveling around the country working for different newspapers, but he, he, he was the only believer in the paranormal and so he would investigate a ghost or he would investigate these other stories that nobody else would touch and and and then they turn it into a weekly series. I think it lasted for like two years with the Darren mcgavin but. Carter Cratia file over there, say. Yeah. That would not surprise me at all. So is this show, by the way? That. That's an okay thing. Chris Carter, always credited coast to coast, always. In fact, one of his characters is a very art Belhadj character, which you gotta love. All right. So wildcard line. Cliff is in rolling hills on coast to coast AM cliff. Yes. In first of all, I'd like to say the u are always a breath of fresh air. And I always tune in when you're on the air, appreciate that. And. Your. Your reach never exceeded your grass. I wish that were true. No, that's not true. I'm fooling everybody. You just have such a wide. You of everything it's just a capsule. Well, they love to look I love to read things. I don't know about. And so every time I get a chance. So what, what, what didn't we cover tonight? Cliff. Well, pretty much everything. No. My question for Dahlia would be. About the red lipstick murders. That happened a couple of weeks after the black. I let me just say, you know, Dalia is the national flower of Mexico. Okay. So. Yeah. Welcome to coast to coast. My grass is not as tiptoe here, but I'm impressed. But tell tell us about the red lipstick murder. Well it happened couple of weeks after it was kind of brushed under the rug. And same way it was a woman. Really didn't chose an actress or involved with Hollywood necessarily, but. She murdered and. That was a big story for like a day. And then it went away. And I it but it was. They were trying to bring it into in the same purview with the black Dahlia. So different. That they couldn't couldn't make the Joe. It was really heavily covered. At first and then. This one away. Cliff, you're I'm getting a weird echo. So I'm going to put you on hold here. So I can hear Dahlia, but I didn't know about the red lipstick murders or I've heard about forgotten about it. Just call the lipstick murder because it's quick start. The red lipstick murder is actually a homicide case in the LA Noir, video game. Oh, I think it's I mean obviously there clearly making a reference. Sure. Because there's a victim that mutilated badly beaten, and there's a message written with sick, and that's what happened with the lipstick martyr. Which happened a couple of weeks after the black Dalia where they found the body that had been beaten up, and it had been written on and what sticks, and they at first they thought that maybe it was connected to the black Dahlia, and then that kind of the caller was saying that got that didn't really pan out. But I think it was sort of testament to this shit that sort of Hollywood had this seedy underbelly, and that Hollywood had this sort of dangerous and ugly side, which does. But. That's not a that's not fiction. Well card line. Marianne is in snowflake Arizona on coast to coast AM Marian. Hi, thank you for taking my call in, and tell you, even though these women are high profile Marilyn Monroe was kind of in the same era. Then I always thought that pay for bore of possible worthy though, investigation if there was something more nefarious, gene, cheaper and anger Stevens. And I told you is it still? Remember, her name, never saw the movie that clean the damned a Leo or whatever. So rare, right? Yeah. Day tragic murder of Adrienne Shelly. All of these have the similarity being that. Some were thought he'd there is a drug overdose or as an intentional suicide. Right. Right. But, but then the undercurrent of that was no. It was actually made to look that way. And they got in the killer got away with it. In the English. Stephen sing is still fascinating to me. She was so such an amazing actress and her career was doing great. And then and then boom has gone. Well, then you also get into all the conspiracy theory where, you know, the FBI signed to bring Jean Sebert down and again the, the layers and layers of corruption when you lift up the rock and all the cockroaches and around. Yeah. And you know, and so we've talked about the power of, of Hollywood in getting away. I'm still say I mean there are executives that we know now historically where they if they didn't get away with murder. They certainly got away with covering up a murder and, and, or other, you know, horrible acts done by artists or to control artists, and that, that, that, that narrative maybe has been sort of switched over to the whole rap culture and the control of the, you know, the, the east coast and the west coast. Hip hop. King kingpins who use guns and shooting and all sorts of to control the artists and occasionally. Get busted for it, and then also have to be covered up for it. And they have the power to be able to do that. And you have all the Scientology story to go. That's right. A parallel to the Hollywood power struggle. Andrea is in Washington. Missouri on coast to coast AM for Dahlia. Schweitzer. Go ahead. Andrea. Hi. When I think about a female private investigators. I think of Nancy drew and Carmen sandiego. I have. I can promise you that Nancy drew plays a very big role in my book. Yeah. Yeah, we didn't talk about it, but she mentioned briefly in the very beginning. But yeah, what about Nancy drew for? You have Nancy drew is one of those characters at his never quite played as well. On either the small screen or the big screen as the as she doesn't in the youth young adult novel series. Do you think?.

"Also the calls. The fear of cults, and this idea that would I think, took sort of the hippie living into a very disturbing direction. Yeah. Maybe that also accounts for part of the popularity where all these different platforms are doing a Manson revisit is that, that does tie into something, which is still very current like the whole Nexium story of the, the head of the sex leader, right? Branding, women. Fascinat-. It's like I reading about that when he was coming out, and it was, it's, it's hard to believe that that's real life, that it's not, you know, can sectional narrative because it because, you know, Libya Bentson did deal with something very similar to that in one of the VU episodes, though, short dead. Remember that Ariella go to a first time caller lying? Charles is in Jacksonville on coast to coast AM. Go ahead. Charles. Good morning. Y'all. Remember the show call the night, stalker. Love culture back coal, check the nights. Reporters. Active work. A. There was an episode where he had to battle as on that's true that we go back to the savvy. Stealing from booming. Right. We're here to stumble into confetti stop this zombie. But he did a lot. You know, fill in the tech news, you know screenplay phone. Clearer and rile. No, you're exactly right. It's a great example because not only so culture to is sort of an outsider, he didn't dress. Well me always suit was always rumpled and a little dingy. He wasn't. He wasn't the editors Simon Oakland. I think was the editor he was always on the outs with his boss. He was always broke. He was always, and yeah. He battled zombies in that way that Dahlia, you mentioned about it being more focused on, on voodoo as a religion, so zombie, not as either of the, the George Romero's, Dombi or the. Or the sambas of the World War Z zombies, but rather almost the nineteen thirties, zombies, or zombies of Johnny quest, or something like that. That's fascinating. Yeah. I've never watched the show. Oh, really? Oh. Coal check nights Docker owes excellent. It was it was it was an ABC Tuesday night movie of the week or something like that. So they, they, they had, like three or four different ninety minute versions of culture back, and then and he was always getting fired by his newspaper. So he's traveling around the country working for different newspapers, but he, he, he was the only believer in the paranormal and so he would investigate a ghost or he would investigate these other stories that nobody else would touch and and and then they turn it into a weekly series. I think it lasted for like two years with the Darren mcgavin but. Carter who created the file over there saying, yeah, that would not surprise me at all. So is this show, by the way? Look at that thing. Chris Carter, always credited coast to coast, always in fact, one of his characters is a very art Belhadj character, which you gotta love. All right. So wildcard line. Cliff is in rolling hills on coast to coast AM cliff. Yes. In first of all, I'd like to say.
