He was a very funny guy, except when he tried to get in front of an audience. Funny, man. No. Was he around a lot. When you're a kid, you know, he was gone five days a week. Really on the road, so I didn't see him that often his dad, My grandfather, Van Dyke was kind of my mentor and had a great effect on me, Great man.

As it should be you know even in a pandemic, but you know I wanna go back to this because again I said this radioactive is not like any bio pic I've seen why is that? What attracted you to it? You know everybody would say, yes, I'd love to play manicured. There's been a movie made back in the forties we're greer Garson, and Walter Pidgeon were claimed that but it has that look of okay. This is regulation they're not there seems like. In radioactive that all the rules breath. School is it. You know it's GonNa. Be Poked Science.

Who any character who could legitimize you to to flush Ford it would be someone like Mary Carey with her brain, which would have had an inkling would've had an inkling of what the future could hold with this discovery of the phenomenon of radioactive not so.

let's go to Thomas in the whole year California hi Tom your just thank you for taking my call and Mr local always a pleasure always a pleasure how wonderful to hear your voice to Sir thank you you know the nineteen fifties just produce some great science fiction horror movies like Lincoln mobile more directed by Jack Arnold yeah yeah I got a you know I think of movies like the tingler and the crawling online again those were group uses some great ones planet but the movie I was going to ask you about and the direct button planet blob that what was that well say that again we're showing forbidden planet blob says which is an event that I do however healing really yeah Walter Pidgeon I mean just a great movie and Robby the robot you know is in that movie and Robby the robot if you watch that movie very closely Robbie cannot sit down at the very end of that movie he's got like cardboard legs when he's sitting at the control panel the whole boy yeah yeah but the movie I wanted to ask about and the director is Robert why use who may answer the day the earth stood still Hey the earth stood still original one right yeah the original one was Michael running yeah and job just a perfect film black and white Intel and yeah absolutely and and and and and such a great message you know the aliens were here to destroy as they were here to help us save us from ourselves right right and it it corporate does a lot of themes to that were way ahead of their time the idea of that yeah artificial intelligence with the robot Gort spacecraft itself had you know computer system and the center of that but job the acting was just superb Robert Weiss went on to make of course the sound of music but he also made the the first Star Trek movie yeah and Andromeda strain you know biological horror but I really liked the day the earth stood still nineteen fifty one I just felt that's one of the greatest films of all time of any genre in my opinion yeah the the years of so now I'm going to have to put that on my list absolutely I can watch that that's my new best might favorite movie of the hour now thanks in in in wanted Renny say what did what did the alien say was his name was Klaatu wasn't quite to barada nikto was the weather it was the words that you had to say to court to the ship yes which was later picked up by evil be evil dead they made that the magic words of the Necronomicon they they pulled it right out of it was a directly referencing Dave years stood still in the evil dead with the Necronomicon the words that you say to the Necronomicon we have Julia in Loveland today California welcome to the program Julie go ahead yes good evening gentlemen you know I grew up on horror movies I actually grew up in a haunted house however the one movie that really scared me was a movie that people rarely speak of and it's called the entity about a hundred thousand would here the end I thought it was either the entity one a that's a that's a very genuinely scary movie yes it is I can't remember the actors but I just find it fascinating that not too many people know of it you know it it didn't it didn't have a robust you know it became out before home video really took hold and I think it is just a nineteen eighty two movie I am not sure I maybe late seventies early eighties I think it is eighty two that's when I was with Ron silver Barbara Hershey Barbara Hershey yes and and it was based on a true story and she is at the very end of the movie they just say that it continues to follow her that the the there's there's no real conclusion to it no there isn't and the Irish scarier click the birds we don't really know why it happens and there isn't a real conclusion and I think the fact that leading it open and it is so much more terrifying and supposedly it's still going on wow well what do you what what a single live with thanks to be possessed ed wood tell us a little bit about him all I love talking about it would it it would be of course I think met his greatest fame when the golden Turkey awards announced him as the worst director of all time but of course he directed plan nine from outer space and they made the Tim Burton made a film about it would which one a couple Academy Awards with Martin Landau did for his betrayal of a lego city but it ed wood the low budget film maker he have wasn't have famously an alcoholic and a cross dresser and he he you know it's surprising that that he was able to make you know five feature films but he somehow did he had so much enthusiasm and you know the but a lot of the things we think about with him with you know the the cheap model flying saucers on strings and and you know the sets me on a cardboard moon knocking over the tombstone and no continuity between day and night and you know a lot of those things we think of in in B. movies he really did the whole thing is movies do you know the name Judson fountain jobs found at the micro he was called the radio ed wood of drama when he would tell me about it he would do strange and weird things he was born back in nineteen thirty four he got into radio and he just started doing low budget productions and what they could they called they called him the basically the the ed wood of radio drophead would've radio yeah well you know it's just one everyone was you know I think he he wrote he was a Guinness book award winning type if he could write a screenplay in two days and ghost wrote a lot of things for people and I think he thought if he directed the movie himself he can keep a lot more of the money you know he'd he'd make four hundred Bucks on a project in the director would make four thousand you know so I think he thought he could make more money if he did it all himself but I think he just spread himself to them on the scripts that he rode rod Serling would dictate the scraps into a dictaphone machine in those days are you and then the secretary one transcribe match and just be able to just work just tell a story into a tape recorder and then have your secretary make a script out of it I've got back I was a gene my god yeah marks agree who's written a book about the twilight zone in in

"Episode for life upon the wicked stage that song, first appeared in Oscar Hammerstein, and Jerome, Kerns, showboat produced by Flo. Ziegfeld in nineteen twenty seven based on the novel by EDNA Ferber, the musical has had many revivals. But I've never actually seen it onstage. I did. However, see the movie with Marge champion as blossom Dearie singing, the comical, earaches actually, the title for this piece is a bit of misnomer. I was never onstage. Well, once when I was in first grade, but it must have scared me so much. Never did it again. No, my affiliation. With theater is watching the performance from below usually behind the director. But more of that later, the first time I saw Broadway. Play was in nineteen fifty six at the lyceum theater near Times Square was a comedy written by Kyle Crichton called the happiest millionaire, starring Walter Pidgeon. I went with a group of junior high classmates. That's why the teacher thought this was something. We'd enjoy. I can't say, maybe because it featured a prop alligator in a bathtub. I don't know anyone else thought but I thought it was a very silly play. I had already begun my first attempt at fiction in my high self esteemed status as an aspiring novelist. I decided that if this was theater, I'd take a pass. Thank you. I had just turned fifteen. I never did finish that early novel it to as I look back on. It was rather silly. But as I worked on it, then I realized that I needed better dialogue. So I began listening more and doing more writing exercises, although it was many years before I wrote my first play twenty years to be exact in nineteen seventy five my first full length play was produced in Boston. It was about the Jesuits efforts to proselytize the Hurons in North America in the sixteen hundreds, I was neither Jesuit nor Huron. But the topic interested me the play was performed. Ironically enough in a church basement, my parents living, several states away didn't attend. But sweetly sent me a congratulatory telegram on opening night. Just as if it were playing in neon lights along the great white way. I was elated with the whole experience. I attended every rehearsal, every performance, I was on top of the world, the production, scored very positive reviews, and at the end of the season, it was listed in a local arts newspaper as one of the ten best place for that year. I received a playwright in grant from the artists foundation of Massachusetts and later one for the Massachusetts cultural council. I was on my way. While worked on my second full length play, I had several successes with short plays in a playful and on local television. I really began to think of myself as a playwright, not, of course, giving up the day job. Meanwhile I had submitted a script to a director New York who wanted to meet with me. I am mmediately bought a train ticket to Penn station and arrange to meet the director at noon in the lobby of the Waldorf Astoria, where I booked the cheapest room they had for overnight, even at that the room plus train fare, strained, my small budget. But as I wait. Sit in the lobby. I was exhilerated with the thought that I might have a professionally produced play in the Big Apple. I can't remember the name of the director anymore and the meeting was over so quickly. I can't recall our exact conversation, but I thought it went well at the time. However, I never did hear back from the director, and I've never had a production on Broadway with only a little money left in my wallet. That day, I decided to trade dinner for play the one I most wanted to see was the basic training of Pablo Hummel written by David Rabe directed by Boston theater icon, David, Wheeler it starred Al Pacino already a renowned actor on stage and film in the godfather one and two, I was able to buy discounted ticket at the box office at the last minute before the curtain rose, and was fortunate that the seat was front and center, there was a full house Hummel is in the tradition of complex, antiwar plays and the depiction of Pablo an American soil. Children. Have yet on war isn't a long literary tradition of hapless anti heroes. The language of the play is raw and perfectly thin to its time and place Paolo as a character is not particularly smart. Not very sympathetic. But still compelling in the dark portrayal by Pacino as the play preceded the audience was transfixed by the relentlessness David ribs, script, and the intensity Pacino's performance, which was soon to win a Tony award following the end of the play the inevitable and empty death of Pablo homo. There was a strained silence in the audience. Then in unison, everyone rose to their feet. Clapping myself included would that play have the same reception? Now, I don't know what was relevant and shocking about Vietnam, then has been clipped by real life since but in nineteen seventy seven I had never experienced a standing ovation before. And at that moment, in that space at that performance, I saw the power of theater a year later, I had my second full length production titled rapture in a large venue, this time, the theater critic from the major Boston newspaper came we all waited for his review. It wasn't the only review with all the others being very positive. But this was the one everyone read from beginning to end. He entirely missed the point of the play which was about the descent into madness of a father, whose young son has committed suicide, it may have been a little before its time. I grant you, but the reviewers seem to take an uncommon perverse glee in savaging the play some critics are like that the headline of the review. Read rapture is a rupture. I I laugh at it now. But unfortunately, in that moment of my life, I was owned Rable such malevolence, I stopped writing for several years, even now, recalling that experiences, sent me scurrying to the internet to make sure his review is an archived anywhere. Thankfully, not, however, that was a long time ago, and I've written a great deal since then both plays and novels and plays that have become novels novels that have become film scripts with. That's another story from the very first time I worked with the director and actors in everyone from stage managers to prop masters and sound and lighting engineers. I knew I adored the process of producing a play, let Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland say, okay kids, let's put on a show and I'm there never mind, you onstage. I'm perfectly happy to sit and watch the alchemy happen, while I've never had the privilege of an equity production. I am a deep Admira of the commitment of community theatre, although you may be. His board as I am with some dated old comedies such as same time next year in which the audience may well wonder with the two main characters seen each other. I do understand why these are so often performed boils down to the cost of mounting the play, and the likelihood of attracting an audience will there be enough people to pay the price of admission in order to just break even luring audiences to see original or experimental work may depend on the sophistication and affluence of the community, but on a familiar comedy, and at least the patrons, no they going to get a giggle for their time and money at the community or even regional level. Nearly everyone involved in a production, unless retired is otherwise employed on their off time actress spent hours upon hours, memorizing lines rehearsing nights, and weekends, and performing most often without pay compensation. For members of the theater company is sometimes no more than a couple of complimentary tickets to give to family. Your friends, and you pray they'll show up playing to an empty houses to heartening. I experienced the dedication of the entire theater company in every play I've ever had produced as a playwright once the play goes up. You are a little more than a spectator. Many times I'd watch with Har when actress forgot the lines or worse jumped scenes. But I marvel at the ability of the rest of the cast to cover up the mistakes in one of my plays the lead actress, never did get the lines, right? Or in proper order throughout the entire run. Nonetheless, the play one in American regional theatre award Arte for the best script that year. I'm not sure exactly what that's about the script, but it certainly credits. The actors great improv that play was based on hamlet. If hamlet were contancts old spinster in Vermont in the nineteen thirties. Many scholars attribute the first murder mystery to Edgar Allan Poe, but Shakespeare predated him by a couple of centuries hamlet to me. Is a classic murder mystery as it happens. My play never went further than a local production. I laid it turned it into a novel cold winter kill which I've just adapted to a film, script of the same name. I haven't been very successful since gifts, having had several options or near Hollywood production only to fall through. But I guess that's a pretty common experience with screenwriters in writing a play the very best when in hope for is a standing ovation. If it happens even once in your lifetime you may catch yourself filled. It happened once for me. Well, not exactly from me, no one shouted author author, but once an entire audience stood up and applauded the young woman who acted in a short play of mine. The play called Hulas loom was staged in a series of different venues, including the Boston theater, marathon. But it was the first performance in a small local theater that made it memorable for me, the play was written as a companion. Piece to Penelope's tapestry, the story, I related to neponset, too and was based on an actual event with a slight modification here to conceal the identity of any individuals. I'm going to read it to you, but you'll have to grant me, the fiction that you're hearing a young Middle Eastern woman. Hulas loom lights up as the Islamic call to prayer is heard in the background. Houma sits at her loom on a stone weaving rug. There is a pile of prayer rugs in the corner, when there is silence. She speaks with a restraint of one who has suffered. It is the beginning of winter and I have prepared for the cold. I have rugs on the walls, and floor and have woven heavy blankets to keep my boys warm. I am Houma, daughter of has the teacher mother of Mustafa REM. My two boys sleep now, I put them to bed early because their stomachs growl for food, and there is no more food today. Tomorrow Salah will come and I will give them rice and play games with him. And perhaps, they will not be so hungry tomorrow. They are very little, but they have no friends, no one will play with him. But me are MS only three but Moustapha is of age to go to school. He is not allowed, but he does not know why. Was dafa. I am teaching. He will know how to read and how to write because I know how to read and how to write my father taught me that was my fate. When ISIS came into our village took over everything in our lives. I was twelve years old. I was already reading the Koran for many years. And my piety was known in our neighborhood. I did not yet wear the burqa. So my face was exposed, I was considered a handsome, young woman, an ISIS fighter. I will not pronounce his name in the presence of Allah selected.

He led the orchestra from nineteen eighty five to nineteen Eighty-nine before as a Pekka Solomon took over as its music director. But Previn who died in New York today at the age of eighty nine did far more than carry a baton like Leonard Bernstein to whom Previn has been favorably compared Previn wrote movie scores played piano and composed both operas and Broadway. Musicals I asked Dockery wolf, the classical music editor at the New York Times to weigh in on Previn eclectic musical career only really kind of Leonard Bernstein comes to mind as a sort of parallel in terms of one of these these mid-century Americans who as sort of classical music, achieved this unbelievably wide audience, the recordings and the rise of jazz musical theatre. Film. I mean, everything kind of sort of collided, and maybe sort of explosion coming out of the US. And there were a couple of people who had the versatility and the talent. And president was definitely one of them. I wanna play Andre Previn plane piano for a piece called just in time. Let's listen to it. So how did his work in jazz and film scoring make him a different conductor when he was with the baton the read on him. And I agree with was that. There was always I kind of amazing sense of spontaneity and rhythm and a lot of poise. And I mean, he did wonderful recordings of French music. I mean, and this was not necessarily that was jazzy per se. But I think that there must have been think taste for rhythmic flair and for certain spirit and vitality throughout the recordings that he made as a conductor of the music pearly times. There's a great little piece in the New York Times. Obituary says eh senior in high school he was called in to help with holiday in Mexico and MGM musical that starred Walter Pidgeon, and in which Fidel Castro was an extra sounds as if Andre Previn from a very early. Early age had a lot of talent. And that talent was recognized talk about his early career. And you know, when he was recognized as something of a prodigy. I mean, he was really studying music from very very early age. And when they left Berlin to escape the, Nazis, they were first in Paris. And then he was in LA and through all of that was advancing by leaps and bounds as a performer, and I think quickly the composer. And he could just even wanna be prodigies could just do anything. And I mean that gave a certain sense of him being. I mean, this was a read on Leonard Bernstein as well that he was a bit of a dilatot that he could do everything pause ably and often way more so defined himself in competition with Leonard Bernstein, or was it more that he saw his career trajectory and thought that there was a good model to follow their. I think that was the sense that I've always had. I mean, I don't know that they were in sort of direct competition, and you're inside was very New York based and I mean had made his first Mark and musical theater, and then was doing way more conducting kind of on the European continent, though, Previn obviously ended up at the Monday symphony early in his career. So they overlapped, but Previn was a creature of Hollywood. And I mean and located there and Bernstein was more New York. I think like a lot of music directors. He occasionally found himself in conflict with people with whom he was working. He had a falling out with Ernest Fleischmann at the LA philharmonic. And I'm wondering if you think back and his legacy in the podium as a conductor. What was he most remembered for and what we're his skills leading an orchestra. Yeah. I mean, my sense. I mean having never seen him as a conductor. I mean, I think the sense was he was excellent musician and had a real kind of taste for the repertoire, I mean. Given that he was a composer. I mean, he wasn't sort of famous for fostering, new music, and I think that there was a sense of certainly in LA of wanting to broaden the lineup by bringing us a pet as a principal guest. Whether or not that was intended to send a signal that it was sort of time for him to go. I don't know. I mean, I think probably politically it was a bit of a mess. But I think that there were certainly things that he was leaving out or things that I mean other emphases that Fleishman wanted, and, but I think that he was always extremely well respected at the podium and the recordings attest to this. They're extremely vibrance. And by kind of extremely polished. So Andre Previn was the music director or principal conductor for about a half dozen orchestras. He composed a variety of film scores including one for Elmer gantry. He was a jazz pianist, he wrote operas, can you think of any? Temporary of his living today who could cover such a broad spectrum of musical performance and styles and leadership roles. I don't think that it exists. I mean, these different strands of music have in a way become a little more professionalized over the past couple of decades. And while there's a lot of collaboration between them people. Stay I think in their lanes a little bit more. I mean, this came up last year when we here at the times were talking about it was a centennary of Bernstein's birth. And we were thinking about parallels today and people we might even want to have comment on that. And it is awfully hard to think about people of younger generation who are having that kind of career, but they weren't so many people even in the heyday of Bernstein and prevent I mean, they were always exceptional
