Ah, lot of feelings, and that's what I tried to get It. Sounds like that came from from the earth. It sounds like that came from from your from your artwork. You know that being in touch with your feelings, trusting your feelings, not being afraid to show your feelings. Exactly.

S Oh, my, The only way you can purchase this stuff is with cash. So this necessitates a trip to the bank. So I think the bank probably knows what you're doing when you say I need $178 in cash, not, you know. Twenties, or, you know I need you to the bank and ask for specific dollar American become out of cash. Which they put in an envelope for me. And I drove off and then I drove to the place where I made my purchase. And you can do a drive up because of the pandemic. The Legislature has said Yes, you could do drive up service.

I didn't. Didn't you say there's a police car? That's part. I didn't say that. No, there was a texture, century said. There's often a police car around, but I didn't see one. But maybe there is some sort of security that I'm unaware of. I hope so. Because it's just kind of unsettling to me that you have to do that. This isn't this isn't the Spencer's fault? It's not.

That I'm hoping if I can rub a little bit of that cream on there, that it will help, but we'll see. But it's It's just sucks for an ounce man. That's just that's ridiculous. I'm you know, there's no competition for one thing. You know, they could just They just set the price. I don't know how much of that is set by the state and how much of it's you know, just sat by the market and All of that. But it was. It's funny that we can't do this with alcohol, because once once I pulled up to the window, I just had to hold up my idea up against the glass. My my driver's license. I'd made my order, so they have me on file there. And I've made my order online. So I guess it's pretty verifiable that it is as long as I got the driver's license and Scott my picture on it. They know that I've you know, made all the proper Applications and have the card and the patient number and all of that, But it's just it's an in and from that point. It was really seamless. You know, they just said Okay, but I got myself. On shoved it through a through. Ah, drawer that comes sticks out like at a bank, you know, and Drop the money in there and take your product and have a nice day. So you Um So that part of it was pretty seamless.

If you're not If you're not supposed to be doing this involving I mean, the federal government says You can't be doing this because banks can't do it. But the bank is doing it. They're they're allowing a third party to kind of slide in there and death. Do it for them, Which is which, which is just hypocritical. Yes, exactly. Well, there's a lot of hypocritical nonsense going on with this whole thing. I mean, you know this. This product has been demonized for so many years and lied about for so many years.

"The 51st vote is vice president and that means the blue wave does become The guiding principles of this country. Yes, sir. But I don't think it's gonna happen. And more importantly, I think the fact is that the president saved the party and he grew the party and he showed us the way by rebuilding it into a party of the working people. And now we need to carry on his work, whether or not he survives the ambush that happened to him right and Philadelphia and Detroit in Milwaukee, but we have a stick three majority on the Supreme Court. And we've got Sidney Powell and great people working in the legal fight and hopefully the win. But even if they don't the fact is that we have not lost the country, And I think as a matter of fact, the complete opposite of the case. I just want to make sure you know that on are confident about that. I told me Oh, my, my my point today. My point today. Has been to focus on How The investigation of the fraud. Is handled. And how the information learned in the investigation is then disseminated. And what the purpose of the investigation is in the first place. I think it needs to happen because I think fraud cannot be allowed to stand. No matter what we say about you can say, Well, look, it took them cheating to win. I feel really good about the country, folks. It took them cheating, or we can't leave it at that. And don't take this personally. Sherman We can't leave it. They stole it. If they stole it, then that becomes institutionalized and they'll keep stealing them. It has to be stopped. The effort has to be made to uncover what happened and then inform as many millions as possible. We cannot. You can talk about all the great things Trump did for the party. Great things for the country. But if the left Is permitted. By virtue of what happened here to change institutionally. The presidential election system so that they can steal it. Every four years. It doesn't matter. That cannot be allowed. We cannot permit that to stand. Whether the investigation shows Biden won or not. We want to know whoever won did so legitimately. There cannot be A circumstance where 70 million Americans don't trust it, and that's where we are. Now you're calling and saying we need to look on the bright side. We shouldn't be mad about it. Trump redid the party. Here's another thing, Sherman. I don't know if you've noticed that the Republican Party as Made up of, say, the never Trumpers. They're going to go in there and they're going to try to take it back. They're going to try to reconstitute the party to what it wass. Before Trump You're saying good luck. They've got a prayer. The American people 95% of the Republican Party support Trump. That is the part yet You say that But The battle is going to take place. All of these things that you've cited have happened. Trump re constituted and redefined the party. He took it over and remade it in his own image. No question. Trump is not going anywhere, no matter what happens in this election is going to do something. I also believe I got a note from a from a friend of mine, said Rush. Trump has earned our support. Despite his ups and downs in my favorite movie rush. The wild bunch. Bye, Sam Peckinpah. You know when they turn on one of their own, William Holden, the star of the movie loses his temporary yells. If these guys when you side with a man, you stay with him. If you can't do that, You're like some animal. You're finished. We're finished. All of us. If you haven't seen the wild bunch, you really oughta watch against a great Great movie Sam Peckinpah was from Fresno is from President. It's all about loyalty. In hard times. And my friend is pointing out here, you side with a guy. We've decided with Trump. We stay with him if you can't do that. You're finished. We're finished. We all deserve to stand by Trump as he moves forward. When I stop and think of this on human terms. The Trump family. They're fine..

"He's written four G Q Sports Illustrated, and many others w k Kip straightens got a new book out. It's called the wild bunch Sam Peckinpah a revolution in Hollywood. And the making of a legendary film Guthrie's own w k Stratton joins us now. And I've always looked at this film, the wild bunch as a turning point in Hollywood. And the way they made westerns. They certainly started making them a lot more gritty after the wild bunch. Yeah. I I agree entirely. You know, sometimes I grew up and got three, you know. And oh, okay. And I and I had relatives who made the land around and all of that. And when I start thinking about what conditions must have been like in the in eighteen eighties war at the time of the wild bunch in the nineteen. It must have been extraordinarily harsh in terms of just dirty gritty difficult and a lot of bloodshed around. And I think that Sam Peckinpah really moved the whole genre in a in a progressive way. When he filmed the wild bunch as he did and made us look at things in a in a really realistic way. Not not like it was being portrayed on gunsmoke on TV. But what it wants to have been really like, do you think these genre of the western at the time nineteen sixty eight when the wild bunch came out needed to move on from the John Wayne era. Yeah. I think the western had gotten pretty stagnant by the mid nineteen sixties. Now, there were some interesting things going on with you know, Monte Hellman did a couple of interesting films the shooting and riding the whirlwind. And then of course, Sergio Leonis trilogy of pictures. He did with Clint Eastwood be called man with no name. Although in fact, he actually had a name and the hobos pictures, they they kind of foreshadowed the possibilities of what could be done. And I think that what Peckinpah did with the wild bunch. Is he created a real art film? It was it was a masterpiece recognized as such from the word go, and it also then took us into a much more realistic way of looking at the whole west. So that opened the door for a lot of revisionist westerns. They tend to be called the come afterwards that I think are. A really fascinating work in just point out the pictures that Clint Eastwood directed westerns between the outlaw Josey Wales. And then given you know, none of that could have happened had not picking on the wild bunch. I also that was my next question. We're talking to w k Stratton Kip strapping he's the author of the wild bunch Sam Peckinpah revolution in Hollywood. And the making of a legendary film he'll be at best of books on Thursday. Speaking and giving his imagine signing some copies of the book saying a Kip, but did the wild bunch did Sam Peckinpah did this reinvention of the western inspire Sergio Leone or was it the other way around? Well, it was it was the other way around. Socio Leoni was making his movies in Spain from Italy that making movies in Spain with German, money and half half English half. In in in Spanish, I are talian me each actor as they filmed spoke, his native voice, and then they just fixed all of that and looping later. But you know, he had seen certainly a fistful of dollars pick and Paul had by the time. He started the wild bunch, and he has gone on record as saying that influenced him because, you know, look, that's a pretty dirty film. People didn't take baths, very often. There was a lot of mud and dust. And if someone is talking in a fly landed on someone's face, you just kept filming because that's how it really was. So Leoni films. Certainly, I think influence Peckinpah in some regards. Now, they are they're very interesting movies. There are a little bit of a mixture of culture reality and ultra fantasy films, and whereas the wild bunch is completely realistic. No, no fantasy elements to it at all. If you didn't know the movie, the wild bunch came out in nineteen sixty eight and it had an all star cast William Holden Ernest borgnine, Edmond, O'Brien, Robert Ryan and kinda redefine the western as we know it, but the actors that did they get into this grit, while they were making this film. Did they realize they were really making a landmark film? Yes, they this was mostly filmed in a town called put her off, which is in the southern part of the Mexican state of Cohiba. And so it was remote now and even more so in nineteen sixty eight when they filmed this and Warren Oates, had a very interesting interview, saying, you know, we realized from the get yelled at something special was going on here, and in that remote setting these people, and I heard from cast member and and crew members that the actors actually became the wild bunch while they were down there, and they sort of living this out twenty four seven, and it certainly shows on on screen. It's guys like William Holden. For instance, his career was was trending downward pretty rapidly by by the time, he took the part for the wild bunch. And he gave such an extraordinary performance in this film as the lead that. It completely re energized his career made him relevant to the baby boomer audience. And you know, he went on to do some some very interesting pictures in the nineteen seventies and into eighties. So it it turned his career around Ernest. Borgnine had won an Academy Award in the nineteen fifties film called Marty. But he had most recently done Mikhail's navy the TV series before the wild bunch. So his he wasn't really being regarded as much of a serious actor in Hollywood at the time. But after the wild bunch is career changed again, and he started getting much better role. So it it really helped the actors who were involved kind of the second tier actor's worn owed struggle. Martin Ben Johnson. Our our hero from from the osage. You know, the real cowboy did wonders for their careers as well. Well, we look forward to seeing you in person w k Stratton at best of books.

Really sort of never interested me. Although I did do film a few years ago mission impossible three with Tom Cruise, who is the most movie star in the whole world. I haven't seen this never heard of it, but but funnily enough, he is the one major movie star that I worked with that I can honestly say he was born to be a movie star later. He is one of the smartest and bravest actors I've ever met in all my life and anybody who gets to work with them will understand what a pleasure it is. He's got his new mission, impossible movie coming out now, but that was the only big, huge movie star that I actually will continuously watch. Usually I watch other actors and usually from films from a long time ago, you know, the movies of William Holden Humphrey Bogart's, and then I was a lot of foreign films. I'm of really good really big fan of quote Asala really big fan of Toshiro foon e Sati jot Ray is one of my favorite performers on. And such spines films on talk off sqi.

Okay, I think you'll enjoy it. I think probably will l. touro is he's just one of those magnets, but each I consider each o- Benicio del Toro in the same level. As I, as I think about the tools Harris's Burton's those high praise. So speaking of of great actors this film Damascus cover very, sadly, turned out to be as you said, John hurts last fist. So I mean, when you're when you're working with a living legend, John hurts. How was that for you? I mean, did you guys have conversations? I'd known for twenty five years. Well, so I guess you did have some conduct. Yeah, we had quite a few lovely. I'd known Jon Preston the in my life. And of course, you know, as as a young man, I'd watch shown throughout his career and certainly when he played the character in ten willington place, which was an extraordinarily doc film with an incredible performance by him. Of course, the American audiences will know him from alien. The alien came out of his. But really, I mean, it's like if but if a young audiences who haven't watched as many Joan had films, as you should watch, you need to watch midnight express, ovoid you, you need to watch nineteen Eighty-four. You also need to watch the field directed by Jim Sheridan starring Richard Harris is the bull McCabe and John hurt as the bird. It is magnificent. His performance is almost mind-blowing LeBron's. So it is very, very sad when we lose a great artist because not only are they not there anymore to enjoy the beautiful days, but we don't get to enjoy the off any more truly an every time. I mean, this year has been a tragedy for music and film. Losing someone like John hurt, losing prince. News, David, Bowie, these need Houston. These are all great aunt us, and it's like, and the problem is where the artists that are replacing them. That's exactly right, because we need the office to replace. They're not. They're not filling those. Well, they're not there to well. Maybe some of them are there, but the not getting the opportunities. I mean, there are some that are trying to do things that are a little bit more extraordinary, but we do need people to actually take incredible sort of like autistic chances. Unfortunately, we live in a world of obviously moss media and stuff like that. Where you almost have to be told what's good through the media for people to actually go in and see it.

"Cliff Robertson passed away in two thousand eleven at the age of eight. He may be best remembered these days are playing okel in these Spiderman series. You know the ones with Tobey Maguire and certainly wasn't the biggest role in the series. But he does get to say the most memorable line in the series. Flash Thompson, he probably deserved. But just because you can be. Doesn't give me the right to. Remember with great power comes great responsibility by that point Robertson was at the end of his long storied career. Let's go back to the beginning different Parker Robinson. The third was born in nineteen. Twenty-three. His father was the air to a tidy sum of ranching money and was rarely around and his mother died young at the age of twenty one succumbing to peritonitis. He served in the US merchant marine World War Two. When after the war was over, he became a journalist and then eventually actor, he made his motion picture debut in nineteen fifty five in the movie picnic, starring William Holden and the nineteen sixties. He optioned the rights to a TV play. He had done that was based on the book flowers for Algernon is it become the basis for his Oscar winning role in the movie. Charlie in nineteen sixty six Robertson married heiress and actress, Dina Merrill. She was the granddaughter of CW post the founder of post cereal and a very rich woman Robertson himself was already independently wealthy at this point. And while he certainly enjoyed working as an actor, he wasn't someone who really needed Hollywood. He was the kind of guy who found Hollywood to be a bit superficial. He was the kind of guy who preferred living in New York and would only go to Los Angeles when making a movie fast forward to nineteen seventy seven, Robert. Jason was in l. a. in February, when he was filming a TV movie called Washington behind closed doors was while he was filming this movie that he was a ten ninety nine tax form in the mail. Apparently he had been paid ten thousand dollars by Columbia Pictures and needs to pay taxes on it. You'll problem here was that he had never gotten a check for ten thousand dollars, and he didn't do any work for Columbia. The previous year, the amount didn't seem to be right either. This was not what he got paid for acting seemed like a mistake to him initially. That's what he talked it up as some sort of a simple error had his assistant call, Columbia Pictures to straighten it out. He didn't think it was anything to be concerned about at the time. But he did have is assistant contact Columbia to find out exactly. What was this check? Four. An initial response that came back was within it was money paid to cliff Robertson for a promotional tour of the film obsession. This was a thriller that he started that was released in nineteen seventy six. And while Columbia did not make obsession, it did distribute it. So the ten thousand dollars was to cover his expenses while promoting it. That answer didn't sound right to Robertson. He had gone to three or four cities to promote obsession. That's absolutely true, but he certainly didn't receive any check for it and he's really wasn't gonna pay any taxes on it. Now he was getting curious. He wanted to really know what was going on.

The signature was off and it was signed cliff Robertson just like you'd see his name in the movies. But Robertson's officials signature for things like this was Clifford p Robertson. Columbia wasn't saying anything to Robertson. But internally, there were people who had looked at the cheque and recognize the signature. They knew it wasn't cliff Robertson's. They thought it looked a lot like the signature of David beagle men, the press. Of Columbia Pictures. Beagle men had been running the movie and television division of Columbia for almost four years.
