CODE SNOW WHITE: "Goldie" himself - Richard Anderson - joins the podcast to share his story of becoming an actor, the film that redefined his Hollywood status, and the role that would forever endear him to a generation. So ditch your socks and grab some sun - it's time to get the flock out of here.

FROM RICHARD'S OFFICIAL WEBSITE:

 

 

 

After seeing Gary Cooper in a movie, Richard Anderson decided that he would like to try his hand at acting. Born in Long Branch, New Jersey, he came west with his family at the age of ten and settled in Los Angeles. After graduating from University High School and serving in the army in World War II he studied at the Actors' Laboratory in Los Angeles, which later became the Actors Studio in New York. After a season of summer stock in Laguna Beach and Santa Barbara, he went into live television where he was spotted by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and screen tested. Ironically he chose for his screen test a scene from Gary Cooper's "The Cowboy and the Lady. " From the test he was signed as a contract player. He gained valuable film experience working with Spencer Tracy, Cary Grant, William Holden, Clark Gable and Walter Pidgeon. He made twenty nine films over a six year period.


With the studio star system ending, he asked to be released from his contract in 1957 in order to appear in Stanley Kubrick's "Paths of Glory" which has since become an anti-war film classic. "I have been lucky to be invited to work in well made motion pictures," he says. "But there was also fun in making 'Curse of the Faceless Man,' a horror film now on the late night circuit." Adding it up he has has made over 40 motion pictures including -- "The Long Hot Summer" and "Compulsion" at the same time getting a taste of the "golden age of television" appearing in "Playhouse 90" with Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward in Irwin Shaw's "The Eighty Yard Run. " He moved on to co-star in five different network television series creating his most popular character in 1973 as Oscar Goldman, OSI Washington boss of the "Six Million Dollar Man." Out of it came "The Bionic Woman." Anderson became the first actor ever to portray the same character in two different television series running concurrently on two different networks (ABC-NBC). He was nominated for an Emmy in the 1976-1977 season. 

From 1988 until 1994, Richard helped Universal Studios, CBS and NBC to make three highly rated two-hour specials, "The Return of the Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman," "Bionic Showdown" (which introduced Sandra Bullock) and "Bionic Ever After."

There’s a lot happening in the entertainment industry outside of Los Angeles and New York. One American city that’s become a hotbed of production over the past 10 plus years is beautiful Boston, MA. And one guy who’s been a part of that production explosion is Chuck Slavin. Transitioning from in front of the camera to behind it, Chuck has worked positions from Production Assistant to Driver to Production Coordinator to Assistant Director building his career in the industry.

When not working on set, Chuck has also been a huge advocate and champion for the State tax credits that are keeping productions coming to Massachusetts. Combining enthusiasm and practicality, Chuck has become a master at networking in New England. This is a great listen on how to network but also a look at some do’s and don’ts when it comes to etiquette on set. Enjoy.

 Don thinks that he doesn't need school as he's a pretty good auto mechanic and knows that's where his life is headed.  But when his dune buggy breaks down in the desert, his auto skills are useless and his lack of knowledge could wind up getting Billy in trouble. 

We all have felt, at one time or another, that some of the classes we took in the course of our education were useless.  But one never knows what life will throw at them.  In the course of this episode, lessons in ancient history and geology pay off for Billy and Cathy, but will Don learn his lesson before it's too late.  Plus, Richard relates some personal stories of times he spent with Shazam! stars Jackson Bostwick and Michael Gray.  Stay tuned for the story of how guest star Wink Roberts set the desert landscape on fire.

It's all here and we want to hear from you on what you think of the episode.
Write us as ShazamIsisPodcast@gmail.com.

 

Moral

If you close your mind to learning, sooner or later you're going to have it opened and be surprised at just how much you've shortchanged yourself. So if you ever think about dropping out of school, you're only hurting yourself."

The Dead Robots Society

The Dead Robots’ Society was created by Justin Macumber in an effort to offer advice and support to other aspiring writers. All the hosts, current and former, have writing experience of some kind. They gather on a weekly basis to share stories of their individual journeys and discuss topics important to the world of writing. Occasional forays into the territories of brown dragons, taco eating cowboy space ninjas, or random discussions involving monkeys are all considered rumor at best and none of the hosts are willing to admit any of that actually happened.

The Screen Guild Theater, which presented Hollywood films in greatly-abridged versions but often with the original stars, did a fantastic job with The Philadelphia Story.  Their adaptation of the comedy classic about a high society wedding interrupted by the presence of the bride’s ex-husband and pair of tabloid reporters features all three of the film’s stars: Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant,  and Jimmy Stewart.  Then that dashing “Robin Hood of Modern Crime,” Simon Templar, makes an appearance on The Saint.  Vincent Price stars as the sophisticated, suave (yet quick with his fists) righter of wrongs.

The Green Hornet arrives in Gotham City and looks like he's gunning for a piece of the action.  But to Batman, muscling in on the trading stamp racket seems low-key for such a high profile gangster.  And what does the foreman of the Pink Chip Stamp Company have to do with it?  Is the Hornet the real evil in this plot or is it the unusual Colonel Gumm with his penchant for alphabet soup?  Van Williams and Bruce Lee guest star in this episode as their respective characters, The Green Hornet and Kato, from their own ABC series in this crossover as an attempt to generate better ratings for the fledgling show.
 
Joining John to discuss this episode and the most important character who doesn't get enough recognition is Justin Michael of Batman The Animated Podcast.

We return to the WCRS Radiostage with another audio production created as a service for the blind back in the early 2000s.  Based on a short story written by producer David Binkley and Michael Elliot, Elliot drafts the audio play for this take on Sherlock Holmes in a story set twenty years after the last documented story by Sr. Arthur Conan Doyle.  The story always read like an audio drama, so it made sense for David to produce it as such.

We open the CYBORGS Case File on BOB McCULLOUGH. Bob has worked as a writer, producer, and director on some of the most popular TV shows throughout the 80s and 90s, including FALCON CREST, BJ AND THE BEAR, STAR TREK THE NEXT GENERATION, and ZORRO. His first real writing credit was for the episode, “In This Corner Jaime Sommers” on THE BIONIC WOMAN (he also wrote, “Jaime and the King”).

But it was his story for the season three SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN episode, “Hocus-Pocus” that earned him entry into the Writer's union. But he had to fight for it. And you WON’T see his name in the episode's credits. We’ll find out why. We’ll also take an in-depth look at how Bob broke into show business - a great story in its own right. In fact, we’re going to go all the way back to Bob’s Hollywood roots, from hanging out at ritzy nightclubs as a child, to rubbing shoulders with Hollywood royalty at his mom’s bath and closet store, to crashing THE DATING GAME and becoming an NBC PAGE for LAUGH-IN, THE DEAN MARTIN SHOW, and the TONIGHT SHOW WITH JOHNNY CARSON.

 

This is an extra long edition of Case File because it not only spotlights a SMDM/BW writer, BUT ALSO serves as great first-hand advice for breaking into Hollywood.

 

“It’s really an open door in Hollywood if you have what they need. And what they need is smart people who are prepared and who are willing to work hard. If you have those things going for you, there’s no reason you can’t succeed. But if you’re sitting around waiting for them to call you, guess what - they’re busy. Tenacity, persistence, and don’t be afraid to do something a little outside the box.” — Bob McCullough

Tonight we discuss a movie that is often overlooked when it comes to the greatest science-fiction movie lists. We are discussing Back to the Future II. We talk about some of the technical aspects of the movie, but also delve into some of the most memorable performances, scenes, and some of our favorite quotes. We also discuss what it got right and what it got wrong. We would love to hear your thoughts about this movie. 

 

Back to the Future II 

Marty McFly has only just gotten back from the past, when he is once again picked up by Dr. Emmett Brown and sent through time to the future. Marty’s job in the future is to pose as his own son to prevent him from being thrown in prison. Unfortunately, things get worse when the future changes the present.

Remake This Movie RIGHT!

“Remake This Movie RIGHT!” is a bi-weekly podcast where we take a classic film that is actively being remade by Hollywood studio execs, and craft our own version of how a modern retelling should go. Does the story need updating? Should characters or motives be tweaked? Do we need more muppets? We take all factors into account, concoct our film, and then offer a Final Pitch to you in movie trailer form. By the end of each episode, we will Remake This Movie RIGHT!

Arnold and Scott are on their way to Gen Con soon, but since it’s been a while, they made some time to record this wild and crazy episode covering some thoughts on the final episodes of iZOMBIESeason 1, Arnold’s recent viewing of [REC] 3, and Scott’s work on the upcoming THE SIXTH GUN RPG! And there’s more, from theories about the paper-laden post-apocalypse to the need for an upcoming episode on those classic Romero films. The more zombies, the merrier!

"As a child and teenager, I didn’t just watch some of the most beloved cartoons and television shows of all times; I lived them. I was the voice of Lucy Van Pelt in the Peanuts Movie, You're a Good Boy Charlie Brown and other Peanut specials. I was also the voice of Fern in the animated theatrical version of Hannah-Barbera’s Charlotte’s Web, as well as dozens of other voices for animated series. Besides voice overs, I appeared in guest starring roles on most of the television shows of the sixties and seventies, as well as co-starring in major motion pictures such as The Beguiled starring Clint Eastwood and Geraldine Page. My list of credits and photos from many of the shows I appeared in can be seen on my web site at PamelynFerdin.com."

For the Fourth of July, we present two unabashedly patriotic episodes from the Golden Age of Radio.  First, the show that captured the immigrant experience with warm-hearted comedy, Life With Luigi.  This time Luigi and his night school class are to march in an Independence Day parade.  Trouble arises when Luigi decides to add firecrackers to the parade.  Then CBS’s You Are There, the program that takes listeners to important moments in history, takes us to – where else – Philadelphia in July of 1776 for the debate over the Declaration of Independence.

And with a third week at the top of the box office, Jurassic World is the first box office "turkey" of the summer season, beating out Avengers: Age of Ultron.  It's a slow week of movie and DVD releases, but there are a couple that promise to threaten the dinosaurs' top spot.  Michael Falkner has this and more on a new Weekly Podioplex.

Aired Febraury 22/23, 1967

 

 

Julie Newmar makes her final bow as the Catwoman in an episode many fans remember fondly.  Catwoman decides to follow the straight and narrow as she enters college.  But the theft of a statue of Batman from the college and a found beenie cap are all the clues Batman needs to figure out Catwoman is up to something.  

 

Joining John to discuss this episode and Julie Newmar's legacy as the Catwoman is View from the Longbox's Michael Bailey.

Michael Bailey has an illness.  While most people would call his comic book collecting a hobby he knows what it really is - a hopeless addiction.  Luckily he has harnessed this personality defect into a weekly Internet radio show.  Mike is a DC guy but likes Marvel just fine.  He prefers the super-hero genre but frankly as long as it is a solid read he’ll try just about any sort of comic.

 

Mike is a Pieces, (his birthday is February 29th as a matter of fact) enjoys cold weather and enjoys a variety of hobbies that rarely involve the outdoors.

 

Currently Mike lives in the Fortress of Baileytude, which is carved into the side of a mountain above scenic Fayetteville, GA.  Somehow he has lucked into having a beautiful wife named Rachel, who is very much an enabler and, for some reason, puts up with his dumb ass.  Together they own a small poodle named Boo, the cutest six pounds of evil you will ever see.  His day job is acting like a department manager for a big box office supply store.
