On today's show, we're going all the way back to May 5th, 2014 when we did an exclusive interview with the legendary John Anthony West. This is perhaps our favorite interview we've ever done. John Anthony West was an American author, lecturer, guide, and proponent of the Sphinx water erosion hypothesis in geology. Influenced by R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz,  in 1993 his work with Robert M. Schoch, a geologist and associate professor of natural science at the College of General Studies at Boston University was presented by Charlton Heston in an NBC special called “The Mystery of the Sphinx” that won a News & Documentary Emmy Award for Best Research and a nomination for Best Documentary. The documentary contends that the main type of weathering evident on the Great Sphinx and surrounding enclosure walls could only have been caused by prolonged and extensive rainfall during the time period from 10,000 to 5000 BCE and was carved out of limestone bedrock by an ancient advanced culture. This challenged the conventional dating of the carving of the statue circa 2500 BCE. West suggested that the Sphinx may be over twice as old as originally determined, whereas Schoch made a more conservative determination of between 5000 and 7000 BCE.

This month, Izzy, Vincent and Mark discuss the films that have been made... and then made again, this time with Oscar-winning success. Mutiny on the Bounty stars Clark Gable and Charles Laughton as mutineer Christian Fletcher and the infamous, harsh Captain Bligh as they set sail to Tahiti on HMS Bounty. William Wyler's Ben Hur is a true epic that contains one of the most famous action sequences of all time - the chariot race in the grand circus. The plot follows Jewish prince Judah Ben-Hur as he is condemned into slavery by his best friend, and Roman, Messala. Charlton Heston stars as the titular character seeking vengeance.

Eleventh-century Spain was a violent borderland of Christian-Muslim bloodshed, but on the eve of the First Crusade, the two religions cooperated as much as they warred in Iberia. And who else to capture the heart of medieval Spain than Charlton Heston himself? Based on the real-life Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, who lived from 1043 to 1099 and was protagonist of the 13th century epic The Poem of the Cid, this movie captures medieval Spain in full Hollywood Golden Age splendor. Rodrigo defeated the Almoravids in a decisive battle in the history of Spain's Reconquista, but was known for battling with both Muslims and Christians. The move – despite its extremely slow pacing and suuuuuper long takes – does a good job of capturing this age. It also doesn't hurt that few people could handle the mythopoetic language of the script like Charlton Heston (John Wayne definitely couldn't – see our review of him as Genghis Khan in The Conqueror).

(20 de junio: Centenario del Natalicio de Pancho Segura) A raíz de sus victorias en los torneos de la Copa Sudamericana en Brasil, Chile, Argentina y Uruguay en 1939, recibió el apoyo moral y económico necesario para viajar a los Estados Unidos como representante especial del Ministerio del Deporte de Ecuador. Desde Nueva York aceptó una beca para estudiar y jugar tenis representando a la Universidad de Miami, y llegó a ser el mejor jugador universitario del país, ganando el campeonato nacional estadounidense por tres años consecutivos, entre 1943 y 1945. En 1947 dio el salto al profesionalismo a pesar de que en aquellos tiempos a los profesionales no se les permitía competir en los torneos del Grand Slam, es decir, en Wimbledon, Roland Garros, Estados Unidos y Australia, ni en la Copa Davis. Soñaba con ganar uno de esos grandes torneos, pero la necesidad económica lo impulsó a tomar esa decisión. Fue así como entre 1950 y 1952 se convirtió en el primer jugador en ganar el torneo profesional de los Estados Unidos en tres superficies diferentes, venciendo dos veces al gran campeón Francisco «Pancho» González, el mejor sacador de la época. Su velocidad en las piernas, su tenis poco ortodoxo pero muy efectivo, y su inteligencia táctica lo llevaron a ser considerado en 1950 y 1952 como el jugador número uno del mundo a nivel profesional. El legendario Jack Kramer dijo de él que «tenía el mejor golpe en la historia del tenis», un golpe de derecha letal con las dos manos.1 Con semejante talento y carisma, en 1962, ya retirado, comenzó a dar clases en California en el Beverly Hills Tennis Club. Algunas de las grandes estrellas del cine, tales como Doris Day, Julie Andrews, Charlton Heston, Barbra Streisand, Gene Hackman y Ava Gardner, fueron alumnos suyos. Pero los dos alumnos más destacados que tuvo fueron dos de los mejores tenistas de la historia: Jimmy Connors, a quien legó su revés a dos manos, y Chris Evert. ¡Con razón que en 1984 ingresó al Salón de la Fama del Tenis Internacional! Se trata, nada más ni nada menos, que de «la Leyenda» del Ecuador, Pancho Segura.2 Cuando falleció a los 96 años, Jimmy Connors escribió en Twitter: «¡Qué día tan triste! Perdí a mi amigo, entrenador y mentor, el gran Pancho Segura...» Y Chris Evert, por su parte, escribió: «Que descanses en paz, Pancho Segura.

On today's episode of Cinemallennials I talked with my cousin Devon about the 1968 science fiction classic, Planet of the Apes, directed by Franklin J. Schaffner and starring Charlton Heston, Roddy McDowall, and Kim Hunter. Planet of the Apes follows the story of a crew of astronauts that crash land on a planet 300 million light years into the future where their perception of both man and ape are reversed, the simians are intelligent and are the conquerors of the world where man is primitive and enslaved. Confronted with this discovery after being hunted by the apes, one of the astronauts Taylor becomes enslaved and has caught the eye of both an animal psychologist, Dr. Zira and her archeologist fiancée Cornelius who claims that apes evolved from man. Upon the discovery of this hypothesized missing link, the chief scientist and defender of the ape faith, Dr. Zaius does all that he can to exterminate Taylor in order to protect the dark knowledge only he knows. From featuring themes like racial supremacy to the balance of faith and science, Planet of the Apes is truly not only a hard Science-Fiction classic, but it is still extremely relevant for our world today. You can purchase Planet of the Apes here. Cinemallennials is a podcast where myself and another millennial are introduced to a classic film for the very first time ranging from the birth of cinema to the 1960s. Myself and my guest will open your eyes to the vast landscape of classic film as we discuss the films' performers, their performances, those behind the camera, and how they and their films still influence our world today.

Our family movie night this week featured the 1965 classic, The Greatest Story Ever Told. Featuring Max von Sydow as Jesus and Charlton Heston as John the Baptist, this film was one of my favorites growing up. Yes, the actor playing Jesus has funny hair. My son Eli was quick to point that out. But I want to key in on Heston's portrayal of John the Baptist here. John Lazarus Mullet, Lauren's and my youngest son, turned 3-years-old this week. And part of the tradition in our house for birthday dinners has been for my wife and I to take turns telling the story behind the naming of our children, and also to tell the story of our children being born. And it just so happened that in my telling the story of how we came to name John as we did, I found myself recalling John the Baptist in The Greatest Story Ever Told. Thus the inclination to watch the movie for the first time ever with my kids. This brings up some interesting questions, though. How much do portrayals of Jesus and the gospels influence our impression of the Biblical text? And how much does an actor's performance color and shape the way we perceive our Savior and God's Word? As Christians, we are supposed to be imitators of Christ especially, and God's faithful servants secondarily at least in some form or fashion. And I could insert here some cliché about the life and testimony of Christians being the only sermon some people will ever hear. But I won't. All the same, we do well to be Bereans about how Jesus is portrayed in any and every medium. Whether we embrace or reject certain aspects of portrayals as entirely faithful, there is a value in the process of evaluating in light of the Scriptures. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/garrett-ashley-mullet/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/garrett-ashley-mullet/support

“TAKE YOUR STINKING PAWS OFF ME, YOU DAMN DIRTY APE!“On this episode, we go back to the oldest movie we’ve done to date, with Planet of the Apes , directed by Franklin J. Schaffner starring the controversial Hollywood icon, Charlton Heston. We go back to 1968 and try to figure out just why this film based off of the ‘63 novel by Pierre Boulle inspired 4 sequels, a remake, a reboot trilogy, and multiple TV series, comic books and video games. Was this film even good, or was the bar for science fiction pre- Star Wars films just low?We talk about how the future NRA president and early champion of the anti political correctness movement, Charlton Heston, might have been accidentally perfect in taking the role as George Taylor, a deeply flawed and hypocritical character. We also get into how Twilight Zone creator and known progressive, Rod Serling wrote the early drafts of the film, and what remains of his vision after former blacklisted writer, Michael Wilson finished the screenplay. What do these contrasting personalities bring to the modern viewing experience?Even though this film is over 50 years old and very dated in terms of special effects and other things that contemporary audiences might find off putting, we learn just how much work went into the making of the prosthetics and make up to create the anthropomorphic Apes, and how that might have effected the Academy Award.Also, what’s the deal with the sequel’s names? Beneath the Planet of the Apes? Escape from the Planet of the Apes? Conquest of the Planet of the Apes? Wait…what’s beneath the Planet of the Apes?We’ve got a lot of opinions and factoids on this one! Come give us a listen, and make sure you stay tuned for our next episode.

On this edition of Parallax Views, few people have lived the kind of life that John Barbour has managed in his 87 years and still going strong life. He became a successful stand-up comic under the guidance of the legendary Redd Foxx in the Civil Rights-era of the 1960s; revolutionized the talk show with a program that featured non-canned, free-flowing conversations about controversial topics like the Vietnam War, American protesters, and labor rights with guests like Jane Fonda, Ronald Reagan, Muhammad Ali, and Cesar Chavez that not only treated the audience as intelligent enough to listen in on the discussions but also opened up the phone lines to allow them to ask the questions; invented reality TV with the show "Real People" under the philosophy of telling the interesting stories of people from all walks of life without judgment; served as a private writer for Frank Sinatra; and produced two separate, controversial documentaries on the assassination of John F. Kennedy and New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison's investigation into Clay. And he did it all as a self-described "Canadian Dropout" as detailed in 700+ page memoir Your Mother's Not A Virgin: The Bumpy Life and Times of the Canadian Dropout Who Changed the Face of American TV! Simply put, John Barbour has led an extraordinary life. And, I think most importantly, he gave a voice to many people, especially through Real People and his talk show, who otherwise would not have been heard. John's career is one of being uncompromising and seeking to promote understanding and truth. That is an accomplishment in itself. John returns to Parallax Views to tell some great stories from his fascinating life including: - Filming a scene with Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner, for the 70s TV movie Pray for the Wildcats. - Being taken to court by a movie producer over his negative review of the Charlton Heston-starring dystopian sci-fi flick Soylent Green in case that went all the way to the Supreme Court! - The hustle of Hollywood, the late night talk show host Jack Paar, and John's experience with Johnny Carson after the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy - How his talk show AM Los Angeles came about because of latino protests; being the first show in the Los Angeles talk show world to take phone calls - John's thoughts on the Fairness Doctrine; butting heads with TV station managers; some talk about the FCC - John's experience interviewing Ronald Reagan, during his days as a California governor before becoming U.S. President, and his impression of Reagan as an empty suit; the tough question John asked Reagan and how Reagan got away with interviewing Reagan despite refusing Reagan's demand of being given pre-planned questions - Interviewing labor leader Cesar Chavez and how Chavez helped John get back at his station manager - The story of when John interviewed Jane Fonda at the height of her antiwar activism during the Vietnam conflict; how John and Jane became friends after a very interesting pre-show conversation where John, who was sympathetic to her antiwar views, tried to demonstrate that perhaps the actress should try a different approach to convincing the American public to question the Vietnam War
