Book Vs Movie “Stand By Me”

Book Vs Movie 

Stand By Me

The Margos take on another Stephen King classic with Different Seasons’ story The Body and the Rob Reiner adaptation Stand By Me

The Margos are going back to Stephen King’s 1982 Different Seasons which features four novellas with a focus on the “summer” tale “The Body.” As written in the story, four young boys from Castle Rock Maine in 1960 who go on a quest to see the deceased body of Ray Brower–a 12-year-old who was most likely hit by a train. 

The boys (Gordie Lachance, Chris Chambers, Vern Tessio and Teddy Duchamp) all come from different levels of homelife abuse and/or neglect and the overnight journey gives them a chance to confront their fears of entering a new school in the coming weeks.  In the meantime, they are being chased by longtime Kind villain Ace Merrill and his mean, dimwitted crew of juvenile delinquents who want to find the body first for themselves. 

Rob Reiner’s 1986 adaptation is considered a modern classic featuring some amazing performances from the entire cast including Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, Jerry O’Connell, and Kiefer Sutherland just to name a few standouts. It also managed to bring Ben E. King back into the music charts with the use of his hit song “Stand By Me.”

In this ep the Margos discuss:

    • The different stories from Different Seasons which were turned into films 
    • The process of changing the scenery and key plot points between book & movie
    • Trivia about the film and life for the young actors on the set

What a Creep: Reverend Jim Jones “The Jonestown Massacre” (Season 5, Episode 5)

What a Creep

Season 5, Episode 5

Reverend Jim Jones “The People’s Temple”

Margo leads the discussion this week talking about a cult Creep–the Reverend Jim Jones who caused the deaths of over 900 people in Jonestown, Guyana in 1978. Jim began his career as a pastor from Indiana who believed in social justice. He eventually morphed into a despot who caused the ruin of countless lives and is the origin story for the expression “drank the Kool-Aid.” 

Then Sonia talks about a person related to the Jonestown event who is NOT a Creep.

Book Vs Movie “All About Eve”

Book Vs Movie 

All About Eve

The Margos talk about one of the most famous fictional “Margos” in entertainment

The Margos are All About Eve in this Bette Davis-centered episode and considered us buckled up for this bumpy ride!

The story is based on actress/writer Mary Orr’s short story for Cosmopolitan magazine “The Wisdom of Eve” published in December 1946. It tells the tale of an actress (Margo Channing) who is threatened by a younger ingenue, Eve Harrington. At the time, people suspected it was secretly about the supposed rivalry on Broadway between Tallulah Bankhead and her understudy Lizabeth Scott. Orr claims it was actually about Martina Lawrence and Elizabeth Bergner. 

The story was bought by 20th Century Fox for $5000 and writer/director Joseph Mankiewicz created the script that would become the classic film that won six Academy Awards, fantastic performances, and a plethora of quotable lines that have lasted to this day. 

In this ep the Margos discuss:

    • The All About Eve origin story
    • Which actors did (and did not) get along
    • Trivia about the film and behind the scenes gossip
    • The amazing women in the film

Clips Featured:

    • All About Eve  trailer
    • Eve meets Miss Casswell
    • “Fasten your seatbelts…”
    • Bill loves Margo
    • Margo describes what it means to be a woman
    • Eve now belongs to Addison
    • Outro music Bette Davis Eyes (Performed by Kim Carnes)

What a Creep: “The Houston Astros” (Season 5, Episode 4)

What a Creep

Season 5, Episode 4

The Houston Astros

Here’s the pitch: In the 2017 season, the Houston Astros used TV cameras to steal signs from opposing team’s catchers, and communicate the signs to their hitters in real-time by banging on a trash can. It sounds kinda stupid, but it’s a big deal. The Houston Astros won the World Series in 2017, due in no small part to their cheating.

We put this story together with a little help from our friends at 

    • The Athletic, which is the site that broke the story, and it’s written by Ken Rosenthal and Evan Drellich

Book Vs Movie “The Big Sleep”

Book Vs Movie 

The Big Sleep

Raymond Chandler’s Novel Vs the Bogie/Bacall Classic Film

The Margos are both working from home these days so we have some extra time to devote to the show. Meaning–a new episode each week for the foreseeable future. (Huzzah!)

This episode is devoted to Raymond Chandler and one of his best-known novels–The Big Sleep. This is the first novel to feature Detective Philip Marlowe and this story is filled with witty lines, nefarious people and double-crossing aplenty. If you are under the impression that this story will be slow and/or easy to understand because it was created almost 100 years ago–guess again. This is one of the most complicated plots we have tried to explain on this show and that is saying something!

The film was directed by Howard Hawks and features a script by William Faulkner and Leigh Brackett. We talk about all of the film trivia we can get our hands on and the incredible performances. So, if you are looking for differences between book & movie, click on the link below and listen! 

In this ep the Margos discuss:

    • The life of Raymond Chandler
    • The popularity of detective stories and film noir in the 1940s
    • How Chandler created the novel out of several short stories
    • The tension between Hawkes, Bogart & Bacall
    • The unusual number of retakes created a year after the film was first made

Clips Featured:

    • The Big Sleep  trailer
    • Bogart & Bacall talking about “horses”
    • Bogart & the Book Shop Proprietress
    • Bogart & Martha Vickers scene
    • Bogart & Bacall last scene
    • Outro music And Her Tears Flowed Like Wine (Music by Stan Kenton & Charles Lawrence. Lyrics by Joe Green. Sung by Lauren Bacall)
