Few films enjoy the cult status and enduring popularity like The Wizard of Oz. This 1939 American musical fantasy by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) is considered one of the greatest cinema masterpieces in history. However, when it came to creating the movie, everything wasn't rainbows and poppy fields. On Aug. 15, 1939, Hollywood premiere of the film classic The Wizard of Oz, the story of a tornado that hits Kansas and transports a young girl named Dorothy, played by Judy Garland, to a magical place called Oz, where she embarks on a journey to track down the wizard who can help her go home. MGM had pulled out all of the stops for the movie, spending $3 million (about $55 million today), desperate to match the commercial success of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. And it worked: The film won two Academy Awards for its music — “Over the Rainbow” won best original song and made Judy Garland famous— in addition to earning nominations for best picture, best cinematography, art direction and special effects. Commercially speaking it made decent money when it was released, but made even more money after CBS aired it for the first time on Nov. 3, 1956.

Well, we're back again! Taking a break was necessary, but we missed you.

It is Christmas time, and while this isn't a Christmas episode per se, it is the gift that keeps on giving. If you've ever heard Nicole Atkins sing, you know there's something eerie, calm, haunting yet beautiful about her voice. There's a sense of mystery, a compelling sound that keeps you coming back for more. Perhaps this has something to do with where she's from, a small town not far from the Jersey beaches, maybe 40 minutes south of New York City. If you've ever been to the Jersey shore, you know there's something in the water. Something that lures you to the insanity of the boardwalk during the summer, but you also know there's something more appealing about being there in the dead of winter, when no one else is around. You've got it to yourself. Listening to Nicole Atkins brings back those feelings—the beautiful calm of being somewhere on your own, almost all alone. In this episode of For Songs, Nicole joins me from her home in Nashville, which was filled to the brim with her newest album Memphis Ice. Recorded in Memphis in one day, Memphis Ice is Nicole's Judy Garland moment. She stripped down songs from her slick, enchanting 2020 release Italian Ice and recreates them here, and the results are breathtaking. We talk about four songs—Promised Land, Domino, Mind Eraser, and Captain. Nicole discusses her songwriting process, how she was able to do more with less, and how her hometown still seeps into her music. Please welcome Nicole Atkins to For Songs.

We had the pleasure of interviewing LP over Zoom video! There's this girl in the corner and she's small, really small, and she looks like a boy, and she's seething with emotion, with rage and love - because she's alone, because we're all alone, because our parents didn't get it. She just found out faster. Her skin is thinner because her heart is bigger. Her heart pushes against the skin, stretching it, sometimes too much. She is a bloodletter, this girl. “A bloodletter of emotion,” she says. I think, given the right or the wrong moment, you are too. Born Italian. New York. You've got to understand that; the hottest blood, the toughest city, the smallest girl. Today she is 5' 3” and just over a hundred pounds but her sound is anthemic, maxed out. You don't believe your ear-eyes when you see-hear, pealing from the body of one fighting with not enough, the music of so, so much. It is the music of emotional emergency, a prayer sung loud into a bottle and cast out to sea. I think of Judy Garland, Bjork, Freddie Mercury if he had to deal with being a fucking girl. From a little match, a conflagration. LP is the medicine. She is good for heartbreak, which she knows, and in a way, lives in. She writes from that, sings from that. The annoyance, the grain of ocean-floor sand troubling the oyster. It's loss. It's always there. Her mother died when she was a teenager. She sang too — a voice, LP remembers, that “was very operatic, kind of like Maria Callas with a Julie Andrews cleanness to her tone.” She'll never recover, but there is the mounting hope, the certain knowledge, hard earned, that “you can wield suffering, which is strength and power.” Church, no church. Gay, not gay. The bloodletting's the same. The blood-pearls of a poet-oyster who has hit songs and record deals and plays sold out shows all over the world and goes to bed saying to herself, “I love, I love, I love, I love…” We want to hear from you!

Sure, Hollywood had its Golden Age. There's a cultural reverence for the Studio System. Greg loves those movies. Turner Classics, anything Black-and-White or MGM. Author and Researcher Donald Jeffries loves those movies, too. But what was happening with the flawed human beings of classic cinema when the set wasn't so hot? The stars, the starlets, the Producers, Directors, Marilyn Monroe, Alfred Hitchcock, Walt Disney, Jimmy Stewart, Gary Grant, John Lennon, Natalie Wood, Judy Garland? Sex, the CIA, murder, DRUGGING, suicides, the mafia, underpaid actors, the casting couch...In his new book, "On Borrowed Fame: Money, Mysteries, and Corruption in the Entertainment World," as well as on this episode, Donald sits down with Greg to shatter the mythology of Golden Era Hollywood and drown out Greg's nostalgia with pure darkness. Here's looking at you, kid. But don't look too hard or Spencer Tracy will punch you out.

This week I'm on foot with a heartless robot, lion, and mindless straw-man, and murdering several older women while colorful characters cheer us on and sing, all while discussing the 1939 classic ‘The Wizard of Oz' with the help of Stacey from Movie Reviews in 20 Q's! Find Stacey and her wonderful show on twitter @MovieReviewsIn or on her website https://mritqs.podbean.com/ The Wizard of Oz is a 1939 American musical fantasy film produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. An adaptation of L. Frank Baum's 1900 children's fantasy novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the film was primarily directed by Victor Fleming (who left the production to take over the troubled Gone with the Wind), and stars Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr, Jack Haley, Billie Burke and Margaret Hamilton. Noel Langley, Florence Ryerson, and Edgar Allan Woolf received credit for the screenplay, but others made uncredited contributions. The songs were written by Edgar "Yip" Harburg and composed by Harold Arlen. The musical score and incidental music were composed by Herbert Stothart.

Children's fantasy usually makes people think of Pixar, Disney, Dreamworks, a.k.a. animated films. But there's a huge chunk of this genre that is live-action, and over the years it's led to some classic, and classically weird, movies. This episode we explore the inexplicable Jim Henson film Labyrinth, starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly. This movie is truly as odd as musical muse. Then we have one of Hollywood's most timeless films starring one of it's most iconic actors; Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz. Enjoy!

When you think of classic movies, this HAS to be 1 of your 10. And @stonerjesus absolutely hates The Wizard of Oz. The film that easily makes its way into our daily lexicon when someone tries to be funny and drops a "I don't think we're in Kansas anymore" quote or "I'll get you my pretty!" This is probably one of the first films you saw as a kid but do @KevinGootee and @KevinIsrael_NJ have fond memories of this film? Or do this think this holds up like a witch dying because a bratty girl threw water in her face?

Third time is the charm! Twice scheduled to grace my living room pre-pandemic, what a Thanksgiving gift Academy Award and Golden Globe Winner, George Chakiris is. Perfectly timed. Ridiculously easy on the eyes, he defies the passage of time and is as gracefully humble in word and deed as he is gliding across a dance floor, or the streets of the barrio, as the case may be. Forever, Bernardo, we dove into a multitude of his other films, from his first, singing with a boys choir opposite Katherine Hepburn in Song of Love, to background dancer alongside Marilyn Monroe, Rosemary Clooney, Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosalind Russell, and Cyd Charisse, to name but a few. Taking his first dance class at 19, he did over a dozen films almost immediately, and went from gypsy to starring in the London production of West Side Story, as… wait for it, Riff. George had not only never acted, he'd nary taken an acting class, and yet in short shrift, he was earning an Oscar, as Bernardo opposite Rita Moreno, in the winningest musical of all time, besting Montgomery Clift, Peter Falk, George C Scott, and Jackie Gleason. A multitude of dramatic films followed, starring opposite Yul Brenner, Charlton Heston, Gene Kelly, Richard Widmark, and Yvette Mimieux, which names but a few. Fabulous stories about fabulous women, Judy Garland (genuis), Liza Minelli, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlene Dietrich, Shirley Jones, Natalie Wood, Elaine Stritch, and a great one about Elvis. As taken with all of the above as I think we'd be, George's refreshing humility is a gentle kiss to Hollywood glitz and glamour. Speaking of glitz, George parlayed his talent from the silver screen to sterling silver Jewelry, featuring necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and more. BLING! I was shocked to discover he not only designes the gorgeous pieces, he silversmiths them into reality. Perfect holiday gifts for that very special someone. You? I've got my eye on one or two. georgechakiris.com I'm currently devouring George's memoir, My West Side Story, with story upon story of the movie and all that is George Chakiris's delicious life. https://amzn.to/30OeD36 These have been challenging days. Spending time with gorgeous George fills my gratitude jar to the rim. Just in time. Happy Thanksgiving. Please pardon the sound at the top of the show. Tech issues glitched the glitz.
