Feb 18, 2011

 

My guests this episode are James Urbaniak, (follow on twitter @jamesurbaniak) actor and the voice of Dr. Venture on The Venture Bros. and Murray Valeriano comedian and comedy writer (follow on twitter @murrayv). We talked the heck out of old Hollywood and acting. Animation and children’s music were lightly touched upon but the works of Charles Laughton were full on dorked out upon to the point that I’ve added some movies to my Netflix Queue.

 

Charles Laughton (Ruggles of Red Gap has been added, a fitting sequel to my OTHER Laughton experience.

    Jackie! I LOVE the show and have been listening since the Blog Talk Radio days. That probably makes what I'm about to say all the more ironic.

    I think there were some levelling/feedback issues with this recording. I love you and Urbaniak too much to not suck it up and finish the episode, but I had to take a break once or twice for a headache from the way the gate kept opening whenever someone started speaking.

    I'm no expert and I know you're doing the best you can, so I hope I'm not coming across as ungrateful or demanding. Maybe you can give Chris Hardwick a call and ask him to put you in touch with Matt Mira!

    Must also note that THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER is based on the novel by the often brilliant Davis Grubb...the fairy-tale framing of the film isn't in the novel (unless my porous memory is fading altogether), but otherwise, not too unfaithful...rather as with PSYCHO by Robert Bloch, Grubb's colleague and peer...certainly one of the most frightening performances from Mitchum. (He'd be nearly as good again in CAPE FEAR, but the film itself is such a dumbing down of John D. MacDonald's novel THE EXECUTIONERS--in which, the married couple decide in the first chapter that they, themselves, have no choice but to become the executioners of the character Mitchum plays in the film...and the novel rockets off from there, while the film and its remake are piddling in comparison) that it's a pity they didn't actually film the novel, with that excellent performance by Mitchum of the villain who's in for a lot more than he bargains for in the films as made (sadly, the remake, despite the talent involved, is simply a camp joke).

    The documentary about the attempt to film I, CLAUDIUS with Charles Laughton in the title role is THE EPIC THAT NEVER WAS...the surviving clips of Laughton they run are often brilliant, even when Laughton doesn't think so...
    http://www.sensesofcinema.com/2005/cteq/epic_that_never_was/ is a nice review of the doc. I'd forgotten that Alexander Korda was the producer (he of THINGS TO COME, THE THIEF OF BAGHDAD, THE JUNGLE BOOK--not the Disney cartoon), Josef von Sternberg the director.

    More to say, no time to write it now, but it is notable how much Urbaniak's voice is similar to Cavett's w/o needing to aspire much to impersonation...Urbaniak just a touch more nasal...they even have similar diction.

    Good show (as was the previous--they're thick on the ground now!).
