Book Vs. Movie: The Bishop's Wife The 1928 novel by Robert Nathan Vs the 1947 Classic Cary Grant Film It's December at Book vs Movie and we are excited about covering holiday-themed films including this selection--The Bishop's Wife. The original novella was written by Robert Nathan in 1928 is the story of a preacher, Henry Boughman, who dreams of building a huge cathedral at the expense of his relationship with his wife Julia.  An angel, Michael, appears to help Henry and his family learn that family & love is more important than status. In the meantime, Michael Falls in love with Julia and is distraught to hear they can never have a “mortal love.” Julia decides to try for another baby to fulfill her needs.  The book is an exploration of faith with vivid conversations between the preacher and a Jewish businessman and Professor Wutheridge who both wish to find out the source of why he is so single-focused on religious expression.  The movie, which features some child actors from the recently released It's a Wonderful Life, took some liberties from the book and focused more on the possible romance of Julia and “Dudley” (Cary Grant in a typically amazing performance.” The film was directed by Henry Koster and stars David Niven and Loretta Young.  So, between the original story and the movie--which did we prefer?  This episode is sponsored by Kensington's newest romance novel by acclaimed South African author Therese Beharrie And They Lived Happily Ever After about a romance novelist, Gaia Anders,  who has an active dream life. In fact, everything she dreams she puts into her stories which double as her love life. Gaia's waking life can't compare to her dreams.  In fact, her childhood was incredibly lonely and she is very shy of romance until she meets her best friend's brother, Jacob Scott. Jacob is a workaholic with no time for relationships, but he crushes hard for Aiden and wonders how he can get her attention. Jacob has his own demons to conquer as he begins to literally share his dreams with Gaia. Can they find love while uncovering personal hard truths?  The story takes place in modern-day Captain Town, South African and you can follow her on ThereseBeharrie.com. Follow the hashtag #OwnVoices Rom-Com to learn about Therese and other romance authors of color.  In this ep the Margos discuss: The life of writer Robert Nathan and his famous relatives The theme of religious devotion in the early 20th Century in the U.S.  The main differences between the novella & film.  Starring: David Niven (Bishop Henry Brougham,) Loretta Young (Julia,) Cary Grant (Dudley,) Monty Woolley (Professor Wutheridge,) James Gleason (Sylvester,) Gladys Cooper (Mrs. Agnes Hamilton,) Elsa Lanchester (Matilda,) Sarah Haden (Mrs. Duffy,) Karolyn Grimes (Debby,) and Robert J.

Book Vs. Movie: Bedknobs and Broomsticks The Marty Norton Novels During WW2 Vs the 1971 Groovy Disney Film The Margos are closing out our “Month of Disney” with the 50th Anniversary of Bedknobs and Broomsticks a partly animated film that is based on the wonderful stories by Mary Norton. An English writer of children's books and was best known for the SciFi-Fantasy collection The Borrowers in the 1950s. For this story, she uses some supernatural elements to tell the tale of a trio of British kids during WW2 who are hiding out in the English countryside. They meet a local villager, Miss Price, who turns out to be an apprentice witch.  The stories appeared as The Magic Bed Knob; or How to Become a Witch in Ten Easy Lessons and Bonfires and Broomsticks which in 1957 became Bedknobs and Broomsticks. The property was sold to Disney and was developed for years in the wake of the Mary Poppins success of the early 1960s.  The movie takes place in 1940 where three kids (Carrie, Charlie, and Paul) are evacuated from London to live in Pepperidge Eye near the Dorset Coast at the start of the War. The Nazis are a big menace and Miss Price is studying witchcraft in order to fight them. With her magic spell, she creates a bed knob that can travel through space and time. In the movie, she is played by Angela Lansbury (a Book Vs Movie favorite!) and along with David Tomlinson (who has a tragic personal story!) they go on a weird and wonderful adventure that includes playing soccer with talking animals and invisible soldiers coming to their rescue to fight off the Germans.  This production was one of the last for the Sherman Brothers for Disney and features some of their classic catchy music and a dance sequence that is a progressive step forward (for 1971 Disney!)   So, between the original story and the animated movie--which did we prefer?  In this ep the Margos discuss: The backdrop of WW2 London and how it changed art created at that time How Fascism is explained in this story The main differences between the children's novels & film.  Starring: Angela Lansbury (Miss Price,) David Tomlinson (Mr. Browne,) Ian Weighill (Charlie Rawlins,) Cindy O'Callaghan (Carrie Rawlins,) Roy Snart (Paul Rawlins,) Roddy McDowell (Mr. Rowan Jelk,) Sam Jaffe (Bookman,) and Tessie O'Shea as Jessie Hobday.  Clips used: “The Beautiful Briny” Bedknobs and Broomsticks  trailer “Eglantine”  “Portobello Road”  “Substitutiary Locomotion” “A Step in the Right Direction”  Music by Richard M.

This week Catrina and Elle talk about everything Northanger Abbey.  Specifically, we talk about what we liked and didn't like in this novel. How does it compare to the other Austen novels we have read so far? And what we thought about the heroine and hero versus our previous heroines and heroes.Catrina also leads a discussion about gothic novels and how Austen used certain tropes. This is a parody of a traditional gothic novel, but how did Austen turn tropes on their heads? Of course, we can't forget our superlatives! See who is most likely to survive a horror movie and who we think is secretly a serial killer.  Wit Beyond Measure is part of the Frolic Podcast Network.

Book Vs. Movie: Pinocchio The Italian Children's Novel Vs the 1940 Animated Film The Margos are feeling very Italian in this episode devoted to the famous story about a marionette who wishes to be a real boy when he grows up. The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi was originally published in a series of magazine articles in 1881. When it was released as a book, it became a worldwide hit and is one of the most translated books of all time.  The story takes place in Tuscany, Italy as Gepetto, a lonely craftsman, finds a piece of wood that talks ad he decides to create a marionette boy to be his son. Right away, his nose grows when he tells a lie and Pinocchio proves to be a handful as a child. He runs away as soon as he is built and Gepetto is arrested for supposedly mistreating him. Pinocchio kills the cricket who tries to warn him about behaving badly!  The plot of this book is next level kooky with killer cats and foxes, talking crickets, fairies, and ‘The Green Fisherman”. It's amazing, but wow!  In 1940, Walt Disney Productions presented Pinocchio as their second animated feature (after Snow White and the Seven Dwarves) and though it did well at the Academy Awards, it was something of a flop at the time. This being a Disney production, that only meant that eventually, it would find an audience and the classic we know it is now.  So, between the original story and the animated movie--which did we prefer?  In this ep the Margos discuss: The complicated plotting of the story The long-lasting pop culture references from the story The main differences between the children's novel & film.  Starring: Dick Jones (Pinocchio,) Cliff Edwards (Jiminy Cricket,) Christian Rub (Geppetto,) Clarence Nash (Figaro,) Charles Judels (Stromboli,) and Evelyn Venable as the Blue Fairy.  Clips used: Pinocchio “I've Got No Strings” Pinocchio  trailer “Monstro!” Pinocchio and Lampwick Pinocchio is a boy Music by Leigh Harline and Paul J.

Book Vs. Movie: Beauty & the Beast The French Fairy Tale from the 1700s Vs the 1991 Animated Classic The Margos continue our month of Disney films with the 1991 classic Beauty and the Beast which is based on a fairy tale written in 1740 by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villenenueva and then later abridged by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont in 1756 for a collection of children's stories.   The simplest version is by de Beaumont. A French merchant has six children with “Beauty” being the youngest daughter. She is considered the most beautiful and has the nicest in temperament so she is her father's favorite. When he loses his fortunes and then has the opportunity to get it back, she only asks for a rose from him as they have not grown in over a year.  Her father tries to take a rose from a garden but is stopped by “The Beast” who runs the manor. The Beast asks the merchant to send his daughter to live with him as his fiance. He treats her well (though she is basically a captive) and she is kept company with a fairy (who wishes she would treat the Beast as more than just a  friend) and animated furniture who act as servants for the Beast.  Eventually, Beauty goes home and then comes back to find the Beast dying from her absence. She kisses him and he becomes a handsome Prince. They get married and live happily ever after.  Disney attempted to make this as an animated picture in the mid 20th Century but no one could figure how to adapt it. With the success of The Little Mermaid in 1989, a new team with Gary Trousdale, Kirk Wise, Linda Woolverton, Howard Ashman, and Alan Menken created a masterpiece that lives on to this day. (30 years after its release!)  So, between the fairy tale and the animated movie--which did we prefer?  In this ep the Margos discuss: The basics of the plot and the two women credited with the story The history of Disney musicals and how “Belle” changed the idea of a Disney “Princess” The main differences between the fairy tale & film.  Starring: Paige O'Hara (Belle,) Robby Benson (The Beast,) Richard White (Gaston,) Jerry Orbach (Lumiere,) David Ogden Stiers (Cogsworth,) Angela Landsbury (Mrs. Potts,) and Bradley Pierce as Chip.  Clips used: Belle meets “Mrs. Potts” and the crew Beauty and the Beast 1991 trailer Gaston proposes to Belle The Beast Presents the library Belle & Beast dance Belle comes back to rescue the beast Music & Lyrics by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman Book Vs.

Book Vs. Movie: Sleeping Beauty The Fairy Tale from the 1600s Vs the the1959 Disney Animated Film The Margos are feeling kind of Disney this month so we are dedicating our next few episodes to those animated classics beginning with Sleeping Beauty from 1959. At the time, it received mixed reviews for its obvious comparison to Snow White & the Seven Dwarves which was considered a masterpiece.  There are several origin stories for this specific tale but we are mainly focused on the Charles Perrault version in 1697 and was later translated by the Brothers Grimm. The plot is a beautiful princess is born and seven goof fairies give her certain special powers (Beauty, music, wit, grace, dance, and goodness) with the sixth one feeling left out and ignored. That fairy puts a curse on the baby who will prick her finger on a spindle and die. The seventh fairy tries to reverse the curse by putting her to sleep instead of dying with the chance she will wake up when kissed by her true love.  100 years later she awakens when a prince meets her and falls in love with her. They get married and have two children who are of ogre origin. The Ogress Queen wants to eat the kids but is tricked into eating goat and lamb instead. The King eventually saves them all. The Grimm Brothers' version does not include ogres.  The animated film took several years to complete and came with all sorts of internal issues (including director Wilfred Jackson's heart attack in 1953) and the hiring and firing of other directors who could not agree on the ultimate vision. The character of Maleficent was created for the film and her look & performance hold up until this day.  So, between the fairy tale and the animated movie--which did we prefer?  In this ep the Margos discuss: The varying stories that inspired the film The look and art direction of the film  The main differences between the fairy tale & film.  Starring: Mary Costa (Princess Aurora,) Bill Shirley (Prince Phillip,) Eleanor Audley (Maleficent,) Verna Felton (Flora,) Barbara Jo Allen (Fauna,) and Barbara Luddy as Merryweather.  Clips used: Maleficent puts a spell on the baby princess Sleeping Beauty  trailer The Prince and Princess meet-cute  Maleficent hypnotizes the princess Music by George Bruns (Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty Ballet)   Book Vs.
