You know in our conversation basically saying like hey look like a lot of military folks have like it or not positive or not like some sort of like leadership either ability or self styled ability that the same things that oftentimes brought them. It's a military bring them into different movements and so there's an inevitability that you're sorta mentioning of like dennis gonna be the world as it is and then you know i.

"I personally i want to govern about the other guys have the same but you brought up like the kind of veteran police component some of like the tenuousness of it and the concerning possibilities and one thing that jumped out at me and this always happens. Happens to you to you. Get kind of typecast as like the veteran voice unit no so after the capital. Just maga madness. I got a bunch of you know. Interview requests limitations articles. Like all right. Well there was some veterans there. So now you need to write about this. And i think that there's a story there but i'm just not sure that it's the story that most media thinks it is or is looking for from someone like me. You're probably someone like you or any of us right. And so as i was just starting some of my research will come the jumped out at me. He's like okay. You know there there. Were i mean there were. That's on the ground and and some of them were. You know ashleigh babbitt you know. She's like a gate guard in the air. Force raid You got that air force may be lieutenant colonel. Who gets fired missing. A and some of them are like politicians at the state level. Like you know doug mess yacht like a you know. A former state senator recurrence. They center he was a retired colonel. The word college sky. Richardson is also from pennsylvania's house. You know and he was involved with like counter intel and was an intelligence to interrogation insulted. Inaugurate okay all. That's their right. There were veterans in the group. But i guess my question is sometimes we just do. We lump all veterans together. Sometimes orders the media do this regardless of what their individual job was whether individual experience was do they then sort of like jump to certain conclusions about a veteran angle to the story. So that's kind of like the to leak russians and then also maybe you can kind of close out a bit with what i think is the commonality because veterans as i think you're gonna mention again. They're not a monolith. They're very diverse. They're not one thing. There is divided in some ways. Eric people but i get the sense and tell me if i'm right. And then maybe enclosed away with a sense of like fears and hopes moving forward to the extent that there are any the one thing that i see that is common is a tendency among many if not most at least a lot to see themselves as a separate tribe and that applies i think as well as the police and you kind of touched on this where a lot of your former bodies and colleagues and i know mine find themselves if not quite apathetic distant from both like the dnc and the rnc world and even from trump and so there this separate thing like tribe there like a cast. And that's a cliche to. But i can't help but wonder if maybe to the extent that there is a commonality. It's that almost vague self righteousness or sense of alone and otherness. So i guess what i'm saying. How have you found the reporting on you know veteran angles two stories like this. And then what are your kind of fears and potential hopes or progress moving forward that says we close out. And that's probably podcasts. Were you know but you know you keep it short. Because i think we all have a million other jobs apparently than just bullshitting. I could help a jump on that when you said i've been making little notes ever since so. Yeah thanks for..

"Like gary indiana which is twenty miles to the west of us like in those communities man like there's no fucking black people who are asking people to abolish the police and furthermore even the more reasonable suggestion which i actually think make sense. depending on where you're located defunding police for areas like ours municipalities who've been gutted by neoliberalism. We don't have any money to shift around so that demand even though it was more reasonable than abolish. The police fell on deaf. Ears here in a place. Like michigan city or gary indiana or benton harbor michigan or south bend indiana because you look at the city budget and you go wait a minute. There's no money to shift around here. you know that. That is a problem because in new york. There's plenty of money to shift around. But if you try and translate that demand down to like the regional local level in a place like michigan city. It means absolutely nothing because we don't have a budget To move around at all in our police officers to be honest with you already making like shit wages. They don't have the greatest benefits in their overworked. Which as you guys also know from being in the military creates a problem because if you have overworked understaffed underpaid police officers. They will take out that frustration on the people that they are policing So this to me is again like why it made sense to me. Bernie's response to this made a lot of political sense Which was yes. There needs to be major reforms. Yes we need to demilitarize however we are going to still have police officers. They are mostly working class. People what do you want to do with them. Like do you want to pay them decently because the other thing is is that like the cops in michigan city or gary indiana shit. Thirty forty fifty percent of our police forces black in gary indiana ninety percent of the police forces black like none of those individuals have connections with white power. Groups are right wing groups like they're just like working class dudes who grew up in gary..

"So i think one of the problems we have is that we're hoping that a state apparatus that's been run by neil liberal democrats neo republicans who've totally undercut trust for any number of reasons. You know Bailing out wall street allowing poor and working class people to suffer sending their kids to bullshit. Wars the problem we face is. We're hoping that very dysfunctional state. Apparatus will hold these people accountable Instead of course. I think what would be the better left position which would be. Hey do do we want to take the helm or no so in other words for me. The questions of the left is are we. Happy being on the outside speaking truth to power Taking the moral high ground so on and so forth permanent kind of dissident position or is it that we have left in the united states. That actually wants to run a society run a nation state that doesn't mean dominate that doesn't mean dictate it just means. Do we want to actually be in the levers of power like and if we are if if in fact we do take over the state however that may happen through some combination of Extra param Parliamentary forces which could be anything from strikes in nonviolent civil disobedience to whatever else through elections through any number of ways that we would do that if indeed we do take over the state. How do we plan to administer it so in other words is it that we just abolish police forces in prisons in the tomorrow or is it that we might need some kind of investigative body In the state apparatus that would look at white power groups or other entities. That would maybe try and undercut the project. So i would say this to my bernie friends. Like i'll end sort of by saying that i would often ask my friends. 'cause i worked on the bernie campaign as well not officially but we volunteered and so forth and i remember asking my friends in the bernie campaign. Hey if bernie wins. Do you not think that there's going to be counter. Revolutionary forces and they. You know people just kind of be like well. What do you mean it'd be like. Well what do you think capitals. Gonna do if bernie wins. You're going to see capital strikes number one number two. How do you think this so in other words. Can you guys have. Can you guys even imagine how much more rabid that would have been on wednesday of bernie. Sanders was the president-elect. Can you imagine the kind of drummed up anti-communist craziness that would have led to the last week in what that could have looked like to. It's like if that's like bernie who we know isn't like some really crazy radical. He's just like a social democrat. Who wants to implement new deal era policies with like a little more woke racial policies. Like it's it's not that crazy i mean. Of course we know the plots overthrow Fdr so it's like there's a history of this. There's a history of fascistic movements in the united states. There's also a history of these white power movements who operate outside of and within the state apparatus. And and you know. I think if we're serious as the left like if we want ordinary people to take seriously. I think we actually need a vision for how we administer the state and like what it looks like to actually keep people safe And again. I'm not worried about like you know i'm not asking for more police on our streets or anything goofy like that but it's like there is a real immature position. The left has taken towards things like prisons..

"I am writing down some of my notes wanting to talk about subject. I got to thinking about what happened at the at the capital last week and that much like being in the service and going going on a deployment led the combat point that all of the people that ended up in washington that day. All the things that they did that you know for however many different reasons you know we wanna look at them like. They're they're less than us that they their their frustrations about life in america. Right now Aren't enough to drive someone to do that. And they completely are certainly there. Were people there that wanted to do certain things that they wanted to present a certain A certain validity to everybody being there But i was wondering what you thought about that. In terms of that the the media right now so desperately wants to nail any of these guys that they can partly to be on the side that everybody else is right now but also for political reasons What stuck out to you in in watching what what's happened at the capitol and the the motivations of of the people there motivations. I'll answer that second in terms of what happened. Look just to give you guys a heads up you know. My brother was a former top security official for the capitol police. He's been through diplomatic in secret service training now over the last year so he's actually on. Mike pompeo security detail. He works for the state department. he you know. How do i put this look. I think you guys know the. When i first saw that i thought to myself if there were a crew say a company size element of two hundred or so people within that mob who had weapons explosives blueprints and actually knew what they were doing because from what i could see yes like some of it was planned in the more and more info that comes out. We're finding out that like it went way deeper than what people think it did initially. And so my thinking right away you know surge on mid live with sergio sergio's a guy my best friend we served in the same platoon during the first deployment second deployment. He left our platoon and went with the scout snipers he was in who seibu at the time that we were in all kinds in any case you know. Sergio and i just thought to ourselves this could have been a lot lot worse And that that was my initial thought. I mean my initial thought was if they would have had their shit together and if you would have had like a company size element of people who were trained with weapons with explosives with a real plan and say that plan was to go in and there is some evidence coming out that people had the intention of like taking some of these democrats hostage and perhaps s assassinating some of them. You can speak to people like my brother or other people and you know. I'm sure danny's aware of this as well but like people people who are in the state apparatus in various institutions will tell you there isn't necessarily a protocol for everything so it's not like there's like what do we do if half of congress is assassinated in the capital's taken over like nobody. I think it's really naive for people in the us to assume that there would have just been less like really clear cut response in swift and we would have dealt with it and you know everything would have just been fine..

"So they were in fact very interested in killing his many Muslims as many iraqis. They could On the other hand that was a small number on the number of marines who ended up committing those type of atrocities. I think we're doing so for the reasons that you mentioned henry and that is guys are upset and you know how it goes you. You're on a patrol. You get ambushed. You don't get the people who ambushed you guys. Go back to the base. They're upset pissed off and thinking about how they're going to take this out on you know after having one of our guys killed how we're going to retaliate. Over the next few days and that just quickly spiraled out of control because when there is no oversight i think human beings are capable of any number of things and that could be like wonderful love and compassion and also really horrific brutalities and atrocities in. You know a lot of the guys we were with. Were taking out their anger and frustration on the iraqi people. Those of us who spoke up about that were often isolated I was given all kinds of shit duties. for instance. We're in a retransmission site that we used to protect the com- guys they'd like detach a couple squads to go protect the com- guys overlooking the city and every day at like five to six pm. They you know we would get mortared. It was like a daily thing that we used to laugh because there was like five. Pm it's going to start.

"They didn't let people know that there was a chance that this could go wrong. But we we make this assumption about why troops commit were crimes not that i'm defending war-crimes at all but we make this assumption that there's a malevolent strand to it however bigger small and it can just be like what you're talking about. Is that guys that that found out. I have to stay longer. Or i'm coming back in five months or seven months marine. I actually kinda grateful hearing about you know army tours now because at least inbetween artur is. There was a little bit longer period of time to be home. And so you actually could be home a little bit not very much because it's supposed appointment redeployment. He just just as as the wheel turns. But how do you. How do you view that today. What you shared about your your former your fellow marines Being really violent against the population in dealing with that. What's your what's your take on that today. It's a good question. henry. I how do i say this. I think it was a mixture of a lot of things i mean. I think you're dead on. I mean so just to give folks some context after the first deployment when we when the unit returned back to twenty nine palms in the fall of two thousand and three. We were initially told that we were going on a on a westpac pump. You know so that. We were gonna go to okinawa australia the philippines etc. So guys were excited. They were told. Hey you the war is won. It's over with you. Guys are going to okinawa. Go have fun and drink and hang out on a ship. Like marines used to do in the eighties and nineties or whatever Once that you know was quickly sort of thrown out the window within like a month of the unit coming home morale sank to a low level. I mean the amount of drug use and alcoholism that existed and violence. The violence in twenty nine palms was something else. I remember just to give an anecdote To give people some idea we had a battalion formation a couple months after the unit returned from our first deployment because two marines had shotgun to death. Two other marines behind a grocery store in twenty nine palms and then set their car on fire because a drug deal went wrong That was just like one example of the type of shit that was going on around twenty nine palms which for people who don't know by the way. Twenty nine palms is almost as Horrific is any kind of combat zone that people could go to. It's like one hundred and twenty degrees. In the summer it's the middle of the mohave desert The only good thing is that. You're sort of positioned in the middle of this triangle. Between tijuana las vegas and los angeles so each places like a two and a half hour three hour drive from twenty nine palms. That's like the only saving grace of that base. And i think that constant like from the desert back to the desert back to the desert back to the desert like over and over again i think sets up like an atmosphere for this kind of stuff as well now when we were overseas. The thing i'll say is that. I think you have some marines that i was that i served with who were rabidly. Xenophobic and islam-phobic..

Los Angeles's Lucas Museum acquires major archive of African American cinema

"The Lucas Museum. Am hasn't yet opened. Its doors but the narrative art space just announced a major acquisition an extensive archive of Black American cinema movie. Posters and film stills stills called separate cinema. The Lucas Museum is currently under construction at Exposition Park near downtown. La It's scheduled to open in late twenty twenty anyone. The museum's film curator is Ryan Linkov Ryan. Welcome to the frame. Thank you for having me. The collection is called separate cinema. Can you explain lane. What's behind the name and how it defines what is included in the archive? We're actually just having this conversation with the founder of the Archive John. Kish the name. It comes out of a specific historical moment specifically the first half of the twentieth century. The Twenties Thirties and forties in particular which saw the proliferation of a film industry really defined around African American filmmakers producers directors actors really kind of films made four and by an African American audience and in a way those existed outside of the mainstream methods of making movies and the distribution channels. So they really were in some weighs a separate track Film production distribution and consumption. For that reason I think it's a way of kind of identifying the ways in which a film home industry kind of developed for particular market that is in some ways obviously always entwined in broader mainstream history but also has its own kind of internal integrity that said the materials in the collection are both made by black filmmakers for black audiences and obviously films produced by the mainstream mainstream majority white film. Production Industry for broader. Is this as well. I WANNA play a clip from a film from nineteen. Forty three is called a cabinet in the sky. As it's hard. Lena Horne Ethel waters and Eddie Anderson. Interestingly it was directed by Vincente Minnelli who did G G in American in Paris. But listen to this good example of what you're talking about in terms MM separate cinema. It's a scene from a cabin in the sky. Nail Right Reverend. When you call on the Senate confessed he better sign me the rest of the evening or oh? You're not that bad Joseph so when you think about this period in film history why is this period so important and understanding how we got where we are. Today I would say it's really in some ways. Essential to understand understand the ways in which especially the Hollywood studio system both developed a culture of representing African Americans that was on the one hand quite pernicious in the way that it represented very entrenched Stereotypes of the African American experience and on the other there were attempts such as cabin in the sky to produce films homes that were at least making an attempt to speak and more sensitive and thoughtful ways to African American audience by featuring major iconic figures within the African American community and also figures who had a broader kind of popular appeal. And this kind of push pull this tension between trying to both represent the African American experience and also kind of in some ways exploiting a capitalizing on particular stereotypes. I think are really kind of something that will continue tend to live with and continues to play itself out in certain ways and I think understanding this broader history especially that kind of early days the first half of the twentieth century when the entire film industry in some ways was most thoroughly coming into shape. I think really helps us understand and explain where we are at the present moment. We're talking with Ryan Linkov Film Curator Raider for the Lucas Museum. To ask you about the collection itself. There are thousands of items in it. What was John Kish up to? And how did he. He assembled all of these things. Well so he's been collecting release since I believe the nineteen seventies and acquiring this collection piece by piece through a variety of different outlets through auctions. Private collections need did develop. What is by most measures the most impressive and comprehensive archive of material related to African American cinema Really with the intent of creating an archive that was available for both scholarly early research and also public programming and exhibitions to really highlight celebrate explore and examine the broader history of African American cinema across the twentieth century. And into the twenty I and he continues to be in conversations with us as new things come auction and that kind of thing so we really want to continue that legacy and also make it in the same ways as accessible for the research and for their conceptualization of the history of African American cinema. I WANNA play a clip from another movie. That is a seminal example of black black cinema. This is one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. Do the right thing in this scene. We're going to hear from a character named Radio Raheem who played by. Bill is always always fighting. The other hand you left hand is kicking much. I mean it looks like the right hand. Love is finished but hold on stop depressed. Rest of the writing is coming back. He's got the best roads now. Strike the devastating right. Oh Hey Kale. I love the scene and it made me wonder about how much film presentation and screenings will. We'll be part of what this collection is going to be about. Are People going to be able to see movies. Are you do screenings and conversations around those films so some programming will be he and major part of the museum's mission going forward. We will have to state of the art theater for film programming and It's great that you played a clip from do the right thing because we are actually organizing a film program. In February February eighth that will feature do the right thing As well as the Whiz we actually the collaboration aberration with Los Angeles County Museum of art and this is really our first attempt at putting together a film program. I think you're scheduled to open in late. Twenty twenty one. We know uh-huh maybe the Academy Museum hasn't quite met its deadlines. Are you pretty hopeful that we will have a museum by the end of next year. We are on schedule to to be substantially complete with construction by the end of twenty twenty. One we haven't announced an actual opening day for the public But everything's moving ahead Ryan Linkov is filmed curator.

"Of g g because I happen to know that LIZA Minnelli's dad, I believe Vincente Vincent Minnelli, directed it. I believe and I think he also directed American Paris said is correct fifty one and fifty eight like, that's the only reason I even know what this movie is I studied the Oscars. I've never seen it. I don't know shit about it couldn't tell you. I just know the vertical is one of the most reference films of all time and it lost JJ. Yeah. That is that is absolutely absurd. So I'm going to hop back into the current era. Actually, it's like fifteen years ago, which is crazy Brokeback mountain Angola's masterpiece to incr- four incredible performances by four of the biggest actors in the world three ever. And it loses to crash it's conceivable that on this list. The most offensive one out of all these is this to me I- crashes, an admittedly good movie, I liked crash. I think crash got a really bad rap out. And you watch it again. It's like this is. A pretty compelling story. If I wrote this, and I made this movie and people told me that it was not good. I'd be like you're a snob. And I made a good movie. Yep. I mean, Paul haggis. This is his this is his Magnus opus. This is the greatest script he ever had in the thing about it is I love this movie. When it came out thought, it was incredibly compelling. It was only in retrospect in hindsight and hearing everyone's opinions that made me kind of like second guess myself. Now, I do know the Brokeback is a better made movie. I know that the performances in it are stronger. I know that the cinematography in it is better. But like. There was something about crash, and when it came out in the climate at the time, and the people that were in it in the way that it was put together that it was just like good, and it made people feel good to watch. And that's kind of what we wanted in the early two thousand and has some powerful scenes the sense of touch song by Mark Isham that plays in the scene where the guy has the gun, and he's you know, bullet and all that. That's great. That's a great scene. It's a powerful scene. It's very emotional that crush has some really good SAMs scene where you know. It's Zoe right is Zoe in it. She the wife now who's the wife, and oh, it's ten new Newton. Yeah. Tanny Newton the scene when you know, Matt Dillon Sameera from the burning cars crazies that it's his great actions free. It's amazed. Terrence howard. There's a lot of great performances in that movie, but broke back is broke Beck's immaculate. It is it is truly a masterpiece. Go back. I'm sorry. Go ahead. I mean, really wins director that you they don't give it to Haggas. They give it to hang Li and he deserved it and Brokeback deserves. I mean that movie it's funny as as I think we've talked about this on the show before talking about this movie a lot as as. As we are as a culture in two thousand five we weren't evolved enough yet to give credit to a movie about two gay Cowboys..

"Staging stuff he had already shot that's where manila dribble yeah but you know it you know you come and go i mean it's you know he'd be dropped out a kiss met for a while which is a terrible of musical and a really a real stiff instructive i think to in the context of this marathon and maybe anywhere and to see be the director your focusing on to see them really struggle with material and turn and a genuine flattens having just to watch a musical kismat which really does come in nailed the camera to the floor and just sit there visibly bored beano in this in this horrible cinemascope framed that manila never really know how to work with a a boring musical the booed kismet with exactly one decent song in it and you know manelli can almost him snoring behind the camera a couldn't wait to get off the set and let somebody else finish a couple of numbers of yeah that's all was at mgm so one choice he made in cabin in the sky with the moving camera that i do want to know comes under the early anya and yeah this scene of a whisper a bit of gossip that he foul those from a face in the front row love that who darren's to the person behind we'll see people singing popping up a severe it's a very busy shot and the camera goes over the congregation and follows the whisper from road rail all the way to the back of the church and there's an instance where absolutely did not have to do that it wasn't a musical number it's really just staging the plot getting the plot into gear a little bit but that choice you know it does a number of things it's not only the excitement of the movement but it also paints the picture of this community didn't it makes us realise right away there is not going to be a white face in your thing and at a good way because that that scene is not again the wrong kind of comedy is not happening in that scene no it's not like it's it's a it's a lightly humorous you know observation of small town gossip traveler and yeah just a lovely touch early on you see while first film first few minutes almasy and he's got it i think i think the other the other key thing visually the you did get.

"That the movie as in the final set is a relic of its time there are some cringeworthy moments but at the same time there is something incredible there is something striking about it being this all black cast he said one of only six films between 90 27 a 54 54 being a key year because of the year the supreme court desegregated schools so this is a rare creature the roe v hasn't in the sky absolutely and then ethel waters josh you mention how great she is well louis armstrong louis are strikes you and i want to touch on that because you mentioned the talented not such a key part of this and i do like witness anal said about a taking may be some narrative energy from wizard of oz but also i thought about pailin pressburger to i don't i don't think you can watch this woman not think about a matter of life and death and that that dichotomy of the afterlife and the the mortal world actually michael while you were talking about manelli and that dichotomy i realized that it's maybe not the same type of guy kadhamy here as what you described in his other films and yet there is one it is this this battle between these two worlds between not not the the home life and the romantic life and the work life in this case but the home life and romantic life the sinful life may be or the temptations of that life and the virtuous life right that's that's the for the dichotomy at play here in cabin in the sky tudor godfearing serves similar exactly allow doesn't work out both were i did not know much about this film when i started watching it other than it was an all black cast and you would actually warned us a little bit that maybe this wasn't the best manelli film to start well it's a rigorously because some people you know are rightly so are are just really are really not going to not gonna wanna put up with a lot of work this films trudeau and i get that i think i will say that based on that the movie struck me is not as blatantly offensive may be as i thought it was going to be road doubt the general.

"You know the the the more kinda winced worthy um it images out of the way as sort of makes room for the song and dance but the right kind of song and dance yao and uh that you're there was only a handful of bubis as i said that were uh what some people call black cast movies and the cinema it started back in 2009 with hull louis a king veto or film and uh you know the reserve all black a film called green pastures and thirty six that also came from the stage but cabin in the sky when fortythree same year as stormy weather the bill boj ankles robinson vehicle which had the nicklaus brothers in it you know again great talent that films even kind of more uncomfortable in some ways than cabin in the sky but i think cabin in the skies were seeing just because you see instantly in the best sequences what minnelli has learned to year apprenticeship just to figure out okay this is how i'm gonna move the camera the kimber does not sit still you know used to sit still and simply record a performer like astairerogers or you know any but and inches will will will not be on it just to sit still and behave with sort of the camera you know attitude of most directors but manelli was really not the first of the best of sort of the second wave of hollywood's musical directors to figure out okay it's gonna it's gonna stay here and then to gonna follow this set a dancers and then it's gonna pivoted 35 45 degrees and pick up this line along the kurbanov saragan thinking of my favorite minute in the cabin in the sky which is late in the film um it's a nightclub sequence featuring the duke ellington orchestra and it's it's it's simply it's called big big jim's paradise ethnic is that right is the name of the club and it's it's jim henry spare to i'm sorry i jim henry's paradise and it's the way minnelli just sorta simply deals with the dancing chorus of like different couples serve moving on to the center the frame and then.

"Once you give ethel waters the microphone and she grabs a hold of this story and does what she wants with this character she's been given and mostly gets to move in saying she leaps a lot of that for me and that was this was really my first encounter with her as a performer onscreen and i was just astounded michael leonard she set up a little bit more specifically the plot here woody allen worries us and it has a at manali i'll go back to two years early so minnelli was a big big broadway director at the time and uh had started in chicago were ten years in chicago earlier as a first a costume designer than a scenic desire and that's how he developed his visual i and before that he was a window dresser ed marshall fields so that's that's where he first learned how to create images and scenery four of asean em stay i'd perfect train it's a frame essential her 'phuc training and and uh and he was an artist before that so by the time he is a big broadway director he gets a call from mgm come on outlets why don't you learn the trade uh okay so for two years bonelli just sort of like is a is a a rolling kind of like idea man for higher what you're helping out on this project that project but no real responsibilities then he goes to new york and uh on a shopping trip the mgm folks that hey there's a small black musical cabin in the sky it's got great talent and at the she knows a medium hit actually wasn't that big hit but ethel waters was in it and rex ingram who in the film as well uh plays the devil right so two of the big broadway stars of cabin in the sky made the jump to the movie but they thought okay this is a good vehicle for manila's first directorial effort you know he's to musical it's perfect for our new pyre minnelli you know he's our new contract director so that's that's where it starts and it's a it's a it's a it's a very olds even at the time it was acquaintance and kind of cloying old school quote negro folk tale on.

"Check out uh a couple of fred astaire movies one is the strangest film he ever made and the biggest flop one of the biggest flop some nelly ever made yolanda and the thief which is a complete train wreck of this not nutball fantasy uh but it has one or two amazing numbers in it you know and many there's a lot in minute minnelli's career where you can you say that sentence over and over you know a a musical or a musical review in the case of ziegfield follies which is made just not that long after cabinet of sky that now twothirds of it is and the behalf of it is kinda junk indrect but there is a number in others among other things is a dance the 'burbs it's the only time for of a stare and kelly dance together in the in their heyday it's just fantastic and you know and then okay you watch it you watch it for the talent and that then you start to look at what minnelli's doing with the with all the stuff that goes into the definition of meson sandra what what's up with that specific color blue in the sky in a why why why is the camera able to do that kind of mobile interaction with the dancers you know what y what taught minnelli were exactly when the kind of fling this boom this crane way up and get get the group shot and then down without a cut to get to pick up a steer maybe and lucille bremmer reno's dance partner and you'll london's the fuel follies you don't pick that up without cutting a lot of it is just the satisfaction that i i appreciate more and more now all these years into my moviegoing life of just watching what a real highly trained master can do with the moving camera and and how manelli can take something like uh a james jones novel which was terrible apparently i've never read it some came running and turn it into this.

"See what a without any kind of conscious sense of what a camera really did uh and what a director can and should arabi shouldn't do with a camera wind filming a musical number or just a simple dramatic scene at the end of that our i was i i just felt like i had learned an incredible amount about somebody i was kind of already in love with the stylist of the camera and uh i you know he brought such kind of huge larger than life flare to all this different material and i mean they showed clips from the clock which is a really interesting melodrama with judy garland and rubber walker which is you know if you had add one or two to the marathon of six you you have going here the clock would be one of them for sure i just thought manelli uh you know had had my kind of style and and then figuring out what that really was and how we achieved the you know that's the thing i've been trying to do my whole life since so i know this is gonna be very difficult for you michael guess talked to us like rick clueless the us pretend we we know nothing about cinema okay we certainly pretend that we don't know anything about minnelli in this case i've seen two minnelli films coming in to cabot in the sky the bad in the beautiful voters part of our marathon because josh hasn't seen it an an american in paris which we have both seen and that's why it's not part of the marathon it was actually part of an early film spotting marathon musicals that sam and i did so with that minimal background and give us and give our listeners who might be equally or even more clueless some things to look out for as we fall in love hopefully with manelli style i think was minnelli's career you can you can start figuring out what manelli moves might mean subbing to you as an individual or if he's really you're kind of director just by simply doing what we do when were younger really what we do kind of it at the core of all our moviegoing interest which is follow the people on the screen you know if you like fred astaire you can sir.
