The 1957 Children’s Classic Vs. The 1966 TV special & the 2000 Ron Howard-Directed Film
The Margos get into the holiday spirit talking about the all-time holiday favorite “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” by Dr. Seuss. In this episode we explore the differences between 1957 children’s classic book and the two filmed properties of it (the 1966 TV classic and the 2000 rowdy Jim Carey version.
Topics we cover here:
The back story of Theodore Seuss Geisel and his less than cheery view of children
Figuring out who John Ford, Tom Ford and Glenn Ford really are
His San Diego roots
Dr. Seuss’s left-leaning politics
The thinking behind the story of the Grinch
The voice actors in the TV special
How Jim Carey won the part
The 8-hour grueling makeup sessions
The insane art direction in the movie (The Margos are NOT fans)
