If you like *The Hateful Eight*, well then there’s another violent-as-hell movie that features an ensemble cast led by Kurt Russell, that also focuses on similar themes of paranoia and distrust among a group of people stuck in a remote outpost in the middle of wintry nowhere. John Carpenter’s *The Thing* (1982).

Hmm, it wasn’t pay-walled for me. In case anyone else is having any issue accessing the above article cited as the source - here it is: > Opinion: How Ken Burns’ surprise role in ‘Interstellar’ explains the movie > Early in Christopher Nolan’s space opera, we see a number of older people on screen, recalling what it was like to live through a natural disaster. “My dad was a farmer back then, like everybody else. Of course, he didn’t start out that way,” reminisces a woman. “When we set the table, we always set the bowls upside down,” recalls a man. > One of the older women, Murphy Cooper, is played by the actress Ellen Burstyn. But the rest are not actors. They are interview subjects from Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan’s 2012 documentary “The Dust Bowl,” and they are speaking about their experiences in that real environmental catastrophe, rather than a fictional cataclysm. > “Interstellar” is the first film to which Burns’s Florentine Films has licensed content from a Burns project. And Nolan’s use of Burns’s  material provides a fascinating window into what the director is trying to say about human actions and environmental responsibility with “Interstellar.” > Duncan told me that Nolan approached him and Burns more than a year ago to pitch them on the idea of using “The Dust Bowl” material in a new context. “He called me up and he said how much he had enjoyed ‘The Dust Bowl,’ how much it had really moved him, and he was really incorporating it into a film he and his brother were making,” Burns explained. “Here he was, hearing in [the survivors] the universality of their circumstance, and how contemporary that was. What he was doing, you could hear the ambition in his voice.” >They agreed, on two conditions: that Paramount approach the Dust Bowl survivors to get their permission to use their interviews directly, and that Duncan and Burns could read the script. A producer flew down with the script, waited until Duncan was done, and flew the copy back to Canada, and Burns and Duncan signed off on the project. >In “Interstellar,” humanity is endangered by a blight that is gradually eliminating the number of crops that are viable on Earth. The world economy and national governments have shrunk dramatically. Drones race through Midwestern skies, abandoned by the intelligence programs that set them aloft, and crash into fields where they are scavenged by entrepreneurial farmers like Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a former pilot who still dreams of flying. Violent dust storms straight out of documentary footage of Dust Bowl storms rise like mountains in the skies, and the particles fill children’s lungs, killing them. If Nolan does not make explicit that the disaster is man-made, his use of testimony from actual Dust Bowl survivors means that he does not need to. “I think it made this potential thing of earth’s future cataclysm, environmental cataclysm on a world-wide scale very palpable and real, and the use of our stuff enhanced that,” Duncan told me. “This really happened. It’s just a question of could it happen on a global scale, or in such a way that our existence on the planet would be imperiled?” >For Burns, it is actually more powerful to let audiences come to their own queasy conclusions about the Dust Bowl, and the kinds of problems that have humans looking sky-ward in “Interstellar.” >”Everyone’s heard of the Dust Bowl but no one ever really understood its extent, or more importantly that it was a man-made environmental disaster,” he argued. “That’s the key. When you fully begin to accept your own culpability in this, as the people in the Dust Bowl do, they begin to reach out for help and solutions, which in the Dust Bowl, come from the New Deal and Franklin Roosevelt.” >”Interstellar” never explains the source of the blight and the dust storms that plague Earth’s remaining residents. But its characters do learn that while they initially thought a race of superior beings was intervening to save humanity, they alone are responsible for their own species’ survival. And by including the voices of Dust Bowl survivors, Nolan has done his own part to preserve their testimony. > “To me it was just gratifying to know, on their behalf, that what they have to say about this moment in time is now going to keep on living and reaching people,” Duncan said. “I really hope that those folks are going to get to go sit in a screening and so they and their children and their children’s children could go see them in a Hollywood production. They’re often in small places, small towns or farms. And it’s good to see that what they had to say was deemed powerful enough, their testimony had such power that it couldn’t be exceeded by fictionalizing.”

Fun fact about that scene is most of the dialogue is improvised - the only direction Scorsese gave was “the first line of dialogue is, ‘What do you think of my painting?’” and De Niro, Pesci, Liotta, and Scorsese’s mom just riffed from there, and ended up with an iconic scene in one of the best films of all-time. Here is Scorsese [talking about it in more detail in a Q&A session w/ Jim Jarmusch.](https://youtu.be/N-oC2miRWWo)

Yeah, I love *Slap Shot*, but it is definitely not everyone’s cup-of-tea. It helps to be an older hockey fan (which I am) to enjoy it. It reminds me of the Jerry Garcia quote, “The Grateful Dead is like licorice - not everyone likes licorice, but those that do really really like it.” That’s *Slap Shot*. I got to ask, you say you love Adam Sandler’s remake of *The Longest Yard* - what’s your opinion of the original w/ Burt Reynolds?

*A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood* (2019) - it’s about Mister Rogers, so there’s no swearing or sex, and the only violence is a scene where a man gets punched in the nose. There are some family dispute thematic elements that may be somewhat unsettling for younger viewers, but nothing too dark. Overall this movie is a delight and should be fine for the whole family.

They were scouting young pitching sensation Cliff Blue, the nephew of major league pitching star Vida Blue. Smith just happened to be pitching against Blue in that game. >”I had a pretty good game and a Dodgers scout who was there said loudly, ‘Hey, who is that other guy?” Smith recalled. “That’s how I got the nickname ‘the Other Guy.’ When the Cubs drafted me, the headline in the local newspaper in my hometown was ‘The Other Guy Drafted by the Cubs.’” >It so happened that baseball legend Buck O’Neil, working as a scout for the Cubs, was also at the game Smith pitched against Blue and strongly recommended that the Cubbies draft Smith. Besides being an outstanding baseball player and manager in the Negro Leagues, O’Neil had a knack for spotting baseball talent. He discovered Lou Brock and Joe Carter, in addition to other major league standouts. > The Cubs took O’Neil’s advice and drafted Smith in the second round of the Major League Baseball Draft in June 1975.

Yeah the date was a typo - but you’re the first person to notice that I also swung-and-missed on the baby’s name. I really need to proofread better. Have a free Reddit award for being eagle-eyed on little Ava’s name.

Some background on this film (from Wikipedia): >Throughout 1965 there had been talk in the music press that the band would make a movie. However, this project was delayed until there was stability in the lineup when Skip Alan replaced Viv Prince on drums. An idea by manager Bryan Morrison to act as a promotional tool, the end result was shot during one week in and around London in January 1966. Its working title was "A Day in the Life of the Pretty Things." >Clocking in at 14 minutes, the black-and-white film contained no dialogue. It opens with the band playing "Me Needing You" which is artfully treated behind the opening titles. There is then a sequence set in a recording studio showing the band supposedly recording "Midnight To Six Man." All recordings heard in the film were the original studio recordings though some new bass parts were added to a couple of songs with less than successful results. Bryan Morrison features in the studio sequence as well as the following sequence for "Can't Stand the Pain." A rather Beatle-esque affair this featured Morrison frogmarching the band around the world before the band rebel, leaving him to fly off on a plane, during which they cavort around London. Bryan escapes by parachute and a lengthy chase sequence takes place. Bryan recaptures the band after falling over, revealing his suitcase full of foreign currency. >The scene changes to the 100 Club, with footage of the fans outside waiting to go indoors where they witness a performance of "L.S.D." Though dubbed, the footage is genuinely live, capturing the sweaty raw excitement of the band on stage at a regular haunt. >An EP entitled The Pretty Things on Film consisting of the songs featured was released by Fontana, but it failed to get much exposure. It was shown in one cinema in London for a couple of weeks, but ended up generally unseen until Snapper included it as a multimedia bonus on their CD reissue of Get the Picture? >Most of the members enjoyed making the movie. Brian Pendleton was an exception, hating the film's director and pointing out that the band themselves – and not Bryan Morrison – ended up paying for the whole movie, feeling it was a wasted opportunity and investment since money was tight for the band.

I couldn't get his mother to be in the scene. But I said, 'Why don't you put the baby in the scene right now?'

Not knowing much about racing history, I just read up some more about Dan Gurney, and I’m now convinced they should make another movie just about him. Consider this list of accomplishments and the script practically writes itself: - First driver to win a race in Sports Cars (1958), Formula One (1962), NASCAR (1963), and Indy cars (1967). - Won the 1967 24 Hours of Le Mans - in his celebration became the first person to shake a bottle of champagne and spray bystanders with it, which has become a celebration tradition throughout sports and otherwise ever since - Won 1967 Belgian Grand Prix, becoming only American ever to win a Grand Prix race in a car of his own design. - In the 1968 German Grand Prix, he became the first driver to wear a full helmet in Grand Prix racing, now the standard - You know [that little flap that juts up on the rear wing](https://imgur.com/a/vD5XwUT) of a race car? That’s called a Gurney Flap because he invented it. It increases downforce, improving traction, which allows the car to turn a higher speeds. It’s now the standard on not just racing cars, but used in helicopters and airplanes too (just in reverse-the flap is put on the underside of the wing to increase lift) - He (and partner Brock Yates) won the first-ever Cannonball Run in 1971, driving from NYC to Redondo Beach, CA in just under 36 hours. - After racing, he started the All American Racers racing team, the drivers for which, during the 41 years he ran it (before turning the company over to his son), won 78 races, including Indianapolis 500 and 24 Hours of Daytona There’s more, but long story short - [the guy was a legend.](https://www.caranddriver.com/features/a15167206/dan-gurney-19312018-feature/)

Very engaging, very warm."

He actually trained to be a dancer when he was a kid - he was then known as Ronnie Walken, and while he was a child actor (he and his brother were on a soap opera), he also attended a school especially for kids in show business (called The Professional Children’s School in Manhattan) where he trained specifically to be a dancer. Much of his earliest stage work was as a dancer in musicals, before he turned to more dramatic work. edit: [here’s a pic of Walken](https://imgur.com/a/KYmHqJX) in his early theatre dancing days with a very young Liza Minnelli

[Source](https://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/01/arts/dean-brooks-cuckoos-nest-doctor-dies-at-96.amp.html) > Dr. Brooks became known to a wide public in the mid-1970s, after he agreed to let the director Milos Forman film “Cuckoo’s Nest” on location at the hospital, a Victorian behemoth that opened in 1883. > In the movie, released in 1975 and based on Ken Kesey’s 1962 novel, Dr. Brooks portrayed Dr. Spivey, the well-meaning but weak-willed psychiatrist who directs the mental hospital in which the dystopian drama unfolds. > Scouting locations, the producers, Saul Zaentz and Michael Douglas, were rebuffed by several West Coast hospitals before winning Dr. Brooks’s approval. > “They wanted to make a movie where real people had lived and died,” Dr. Brooks told the Northwest News Network last year. “I was quite ready to say, ‘Yes, let’s do that, and do that here.’ And we did.” > At Dr. Brooks’s behest, Mr. Forman and one of the screenwriters, Lawrence Hauben, lived in the hospital for weeks, interacting with patients and observing their daily routines. > As he came to know the sober, plain-spoken, silver-haired Dr. Brooks, a psychiatrist with no acting experience, Mr. Forman realized he had his Spivey. > But when Dr. Brooks read for the part, he later said, he found Spivey’s lines unbearably stilted. Mr. Forman agreed to let him and Mr. Nicholson ad-lib their scenes together — including a pivotal one in which Spivey conducts McMurphy’s intake interview, completed in just two takes. > Dean Kent Brooks was born in Colony, Kan., on July 22, 1916. (Because he was known on the set of “Cuckoo’s Nest” by his time-honored nickname, Deaner, the film erroneously credits him as Dean R. Brooks.)

These people chase and unmask the Elephant Man once more. Merrick cries out the now world-famous line, “I am not an animal! I am a human being!”

So the story is Laura Dern, while home from school on summer vacation, was visiting her mom (Diane Ladd, who played Flo in the movie) on-set, and Martin Scorsese put her in a scene as one of the diner patrons. They did 19 takes of the scene, with Dern eating ice cream each time. After Scorsese got the take he liked, he pulled Ladd aside and told her, “She ate 19 ice cream cones and didn’t get sick - that girl’s gonna be an actress!” Here’s Dern talking about it on Live with Kelly and Ryan: https://youtu.be/6uiSVrQLzLs

You are correct - there was a program that accompanied the initial showings of the movie. Coppola makes a passing reference to it [in the source](https://youtu.be/NkF_W_bTJzI) I posted earlier. [Here is a screenshot](https://imgur.com/a/CraCbPB) of the program cover and a few pages inside.
