What fun and gorgeousness! Time flew with two-time Emmy-nominated actress, Lee Purcell, and, world's collided all over the place. It is a small world, after all. From her runway days at three (I know!), Native American ancestry, multi-generational military mantle, to dancing, singing, regional TVing', Lee went on to best 500 hopefuls, handpicked by Steve McQueen hisself (who mentored Lee in all things life, career & fitness––sweet surprise story there), to co-star with Kirk's son, fairly green, Michael Douglas. Lee later co-starred with Kirk, and they're not her only father/son dynasty co-stars. Not a bad place to start. Follow that teaming with Orson Welles, earning an Emmy nomination alongside Mark Harmon, and then another co-starring with Beau Bridges, and father Lloyd. In fact, Lee had lots of Bridges. Hysterical. Old friends with Jeff and his later girlfriend, Candy Clark, well, there are stories then and now, there, too. There's Malcolm McDowell, Chadwick Bostwick, Jon Voight, a brand spanking new, Nicolas Cage, in Valley Girl (his first feature film), and that's barely scratching the Lee Hollywood leading men, surface. The most guest-starring roles on Murder She Wrote, and loads of other TV appearances, cross-genres. We talked fabulous friends, Donny Most, Anson Williams, Geri Jewell, Roslyn Kind, Joey Travolta, and his important inclusion film, Carol of the Bells, and the wondrous Donna Pescow––how we connected, and how those soul sisters found each other and just knew. What a delightful, easy, breezy sit down with this stunning, age-defying beauty, who managed to manifest her dreams and continues to do so. Looking forward to her upcoming, Chocolate Is Not Better Than Sex. You're telling me.

Noir-vember remains in full swing. Matt thinks Orson Welles' "Touch of Evil" (1958) is the last great film from the original Noir era. Adam liked it, but thought it dragged a little in the middle. Both M&A think it's worth seeing just for the opening and final scenes. "Bad Times at the El Royale" (2018) is a film about a mysterious hotel where no one is who they say they are. Adam loved it, but liked it more after talking about it on the show. Next, we go international noir with John Woo's, "Hard Boiled" (1992) and from Korea, "New World" (2013).Thanks for listening!Did we get something wrong?

Today on the Rarified Heir Podcast, we bring you an encore episode with guest Antonia Bogdanovich. Taped pre-pandemic, this interview was done in person and it was the first time host Josh Mills had seen his former elementary school classmate since the 1970s. But it didn't take long to catch up nor did it take much time to dig right in and discussing Antonia's totally unique experience as the child of celebrities  as she had two parents so famous, their marriage and divorce became part of Hollywood lore. Famed director/actor Peter Bogdanovich and production designer/producer/screenwriter Polly Platt were Hollywood's “It” couple beginning in the late 60s, first while making the horror film Targets and later the iconic film The Last Picture Show and its sequel Texasville. Along the way, her parents were connected to some of the most talked about films of the 70s, 80s and 90s including Mask, Pretty Baby, Terms of Endearment, A Star is Born, Broadcast News, They All Laughed, Bottle Rocket and many more. Antonia was both forthcoming and honest about her years growing up in Hollywood, which led her to interact with everyone from Orson Welles to Robin Williams. Along the way, she became a director in her own right with the film Phantom Haloand as you will soon hear, a WWII project she was working on at the time of this interview from a script found in her parents unproduced script archive. Wow! We also delve into The Simpsons, Wes Anderson, the Wilson brothers, Roger Corman, Jack Nicholson and more. One of our first episodes is one of our favorites.

The Ghost of Dune: Jodorowsky's Unmade Masterpiece On this week's episode of WatchThis W/RickRamos, Ibrahim & I continue our look at Frank Herbert's Classic Sci-Fi Novel, Dune. There's no shortage of angles to come at this movie from. Last week we looked at Denis Villeneuve's new film playing in theaters and HBOMax right now. This week Mr. Chavez & I touch on David Lynch's failed early-80's effort with producer Dino De Laurentis. A disastrous production and final product that Lynch has disowned and has great difficulty discussing, for the longest time Dune seemed unfilmable. But the meat of today's episode lays with Frank Pavich's 2013 documentary, Jodorowsky's Dune - a documentary on the making of the most famous un-filmed project in Cinema History. Featuring interviews with directors Richard Stanley and Nicholas Winding Refn, special effects, production and artistic designers, and producers including: H.R. Giger, Michel Seydoux, Chris Foss, and Jean Giraud. This is a fascinating documentary on one of the greatest disappointments in Cinema. A Must-See for all fans of Cinema.

It's Jeremiah's 3rd pick: 8 ½, the 1963 film directed by Federico Fellini. 8 ½ was Fellini's feature film follow-up to 1960s La Dolce Vita – with a segment for an anthology film produced in the interim. La Dolce Vita had been something of an international sensation when it came out, so perhaps the pressure of following that up led him to produce a film about the pressure on a director to make his next movie. It was released in February 1963 to much acclaim, especially from European critics, drawing comparisons to James Joyce's Ulysses and Orson Welles' Citizen Kane along the way. It then opened in the United States in June of that year, where it also earned mostly praise, but for a few critics (Pauline Kael among the detractors). And it ended up winning two Academy Awards, for Best Foreign Film and Best Costume Design (Black and White), while it was also nominated for Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Art Direction. As for our purposes, 8 ½ was first on the Sight & Sound critics survey in 1972, ranked as the 4th greatest film of all time. It Was then at number 5 in 1982, fell off the list in 1992, reentered at #9 in 2002 and ended up at #10 in 2012. Meanwhile, it's been on the directors survey each time they've had one so far, at #2 in 1992, at #3 in 2002, and then at #4 in 2012.

Happy Halloween dear listeners! The October 30th 1937 War of The Worlds radio broadcast is an artistic masterpiece that shapes a great deal of the Horror we consume today. A monument to the power of mass media and how fear can be used to control the populace, in this particular case for entertainment purposes. G and Mike take a deep dive into the backstory and impact on the stat of New Jersey that cold October Sunday. We hear from the operators that took the desperate calls and play some of the media of that time which influenced the broadcast. We also discuss how fear is being used to control the populace today for perhaps more sinister purposes in mass media and the social networks.

This Friday, a new restoration of the 1989 indie classic Chameleon Street opens at BAM. Wendell B. Harris's utterly unique satire follows a real-life compulsive conman, Douglas Street, whose increasingly risky scams demonstrate both a sociopathic genius and a deep pathos. Wendell not only wrote and directed the film, but, like his hero Orson Welles, also played the lead character, with all of the dangerous charm of a man who conned his way into a surgical theater. On today's podcast, Wendell joins FC Editors Clinton Krute and Devika Girish for a fascinating oral history of the making of Chameleon Street, which won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance. He also revealed that he's pulled some cons of his own: in 1978, he scored an interview with classic Hollywood actor Hurd Hatfield by pretending to be a Film Comment reporter. Wendell, when you find the tape, please send it our way! Better late than never.

"Touch of Evil" 1958 and 1998 Director's cut is based on the 1956 novel Badge of Evil. Orson Welles directed the movie, rewrote parts of the script, and played Hank Quinlan the corrupt and double-crossing Police Captain from Los Robles a U.S. border town. Car bomb deaths, drug smuggling, racial tensions, kidnapping, and the ultimate betrayal of a longtime friendship are woven into this mesmerizing tale as only Welles could tell it.Charlton Heston is Ramon Vargas high-ranking member of Mexican law enforcement, Janet Leigh as Susan Vargas the newly wed bride, and Joseph Calleia, in a career-defining role, as Police Officer Pete Menzies. There are excellent performances from many including Akim Tamiroff as Joe Grandi, Marlene Dietrich as Tanya, and Dennis Weaver as the Night Manager. Enjoy!

Synopsis The Russian Revolution of 1917 wiped out many family fortunes, and many penniless, Russian émigrés who fled the Bolsheviks had to start from scratch in exile. Natalie Koussevitzky, however, was not one of them. Her family fortune was fairly diversified, which meant that even the loss of her large Russian holdings left her with considerable wealth elsewhere. And since Natalie was married to the Russian émigré music publisher, conductor, and new music impresario Serge Koussevitzky, that meant a number of famous 20th century composers benefited as well. It's not an exaggeration to say that, culturally speaking, without Natalie's fortune, the history of 20th century music would have been noticeably poorer. When Natalie died, Serge Koussevitzky established a Music Foundation in her honor. One of the Foundation's memorial commissions was premiered on today's date in 1943 by the Boston Symphony, led by Serge Koussevitzky. This was a three-part symphonic “Ode” written by the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky, and dedicated to Natalie's memory. Curiously, the second movement of Stravinsky's “Ode” was actually a bit of recycled film music originally intended for the Orson Welles version of the English novel “Jane Eyre.”  In the final cut, Welles opted for a Bernard Herrmann score instead.
