Great Portrait Of A Music Icon
David Crosby, music legend of the 1960s and 1970s looks back at his professional and personal life.
Many people are amazed that he is still alive, including himself. He has survived heroin and cocaine addiction, several heart attacks and still lives with diabetes. He is very frank in the interviews and he talks about his failed love affairs and feuds with band members.
He first hit it big with the folk rock group The Byrds. Former group members Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman appear briefly to speak about their dealing with Crosby. The original line up also included Gene Clark. The Byrds had a great sound with McGuinn's jangling 12 string electric guitar and soaring three part harmony singing by McGuinn, Crosby and Clark. Crosby's beautiful tenor voice was a huge part of it. There is a scene in the film of Crosby talking on stage about conspiracy theories about the JFK assassination. McGuinn explains that he didn't want the Byrds to get into politics, so it was decided that Crosby would be fired from the group. The Byrds' beautiful harmony singing would never be the same after Crosby left.
We see Crosby speaking of life after the Byrds, spending it mostly on his newly acquired sail boat. He also talks about his love for Joni Mitchell, friendship with Cass Elliot and disdain for Jim Morrison. When he sees a photo of The Doors, he sneers "Morrison, what a dork!" He gets back into music when he joins Stephen Stills of Buffalo Springfield and Graham Nash of The Hollies as a super group (the first one, Crosby says). The group appears at Woodstock and record several big selling albums, the trio also become a quartet at times with Neil Young. Once again Crosby is part of a great harmony singing group.
The last part of the film shows things unraveling for Crosby. His drug addiction and rages get him into trouble with the law. The FBI is searching for him on drug and weapons charges. He turns himself in and spends time in prison. He seems to now be sober and would reunite at times with Stills, Nash and/or Young. However while he says he is sober he seems to still have problems with anger and volatility. In just the past few years he has offended former band mates Nash and Young so much that they refuse to perform with or speak to him.
The end shows his touring on his own, as well as recording several solo albums. As of this writing he is still alive and kicking, though it's kind of bittersweet since he is still making music but appears to have lost all of his friends.
Maude: Florida's Affair (1973)
Florida Is Harassed
Fulton is a plumber who is working on the Findlay's furnace and is attracted to Florida.
A funny episode with a great performance by guest star Ron Glass as Fulton. Florida calls her husband Henry to come get her so she can get away from Fulton. After a while he starts to make her laugh and he shows her how to dance the Funky Chicken. Henry arrives at that moment, threatening to punch out Fulton who runs out of the house. Henry also is mad at Florida, she comes in the next day and tells Maude he did not come home that night. Maude, Vivian and Carol get into an argument about men and women's urges and Henry and Florida make up and leave them fighting.
Second City TV: Gaslight (1980)
A Parody Of English Suspense Plays And One Of The Best Of Season 3
This begins with Sunrise Semester and a hilarious Dave Thomas as Angus Crock, a Scottish blues singer who tells us about conversational Scottish. He keeps on reminding everyone he is doing this for free since it's PBS. And gets into an argument with the cameraman and tells him "Away w'you".
Then we see Chick Monk (Tony Rosato) a roadie marriage counselor. He has long hair, a cowboy hat and jeans. It's a very funny sketch as Chick does a sound check and smoke machines while a couple (Robin Duke and Joe Flaherty) try to talk about their marital problems.
Great White North has Bob and Doug talking about a ski trip. Doug puts beer bottles on the skis. There is a crawl about the Canadian Identity Crisis Center.
Next is Rick Moranis doing his excellent impression of Dick Cavett. He really captures his verbose, dry personality. Cavett decides the only guest worthy of appearing is himself so we get 2 Moranis/Cavett impressions for one. Both Cavetts do some name dropping of Woody Allen and Laurence Olivier.
Then we get a very funny parody of the classic film "Gaslight" in which a rich woman (Andrea Martin) is marked for murder by her scheming husband (Flaherty) and low class maid (Duke). They don't do impressions of the original actors but just do funny generic over the top English accents. They attempt to kill the wife and in the funniest scene they fling her across the room a couple of times while dancing. This was made even funnier by the use of an obvious dummy in the scene. But she refuses to die!
The last scene is Sermonette with Father Raoul Wilson (Eugene Levy) a sleazy fake priest. He talks about sex and the church and gets into trouble when he mentions porno magazines and looking a women of all ages as the credits roll.
Maude: Maude's Facelift: Part 2 (1973)
Maude Gets Her Face Lift
Maude had her face lift but did not tell Walter, she wants to surprise him.
A pretty good followup episode. The first scene has Walter and Phillip watching "Josie And The Pussycats" and Walter giving instructions on checking if your fly is open. Maude comes home with a scarf on her head and dark glasses, wanting Walter to be the one who sees her first. He is out so Carol, Florida,Arthur and Vivian see her new face. Walter comes home and doesn't even notice anything different for some of the funniest scenes in the episode.
Maude: Maude's Facelift: Part 1 (1973)
Vivian Returns With A New Look
Vivian returns from a vacation with a surprise: she had her face lifted.
Funny episode with good lines. Rue Mclanahan had previously been on the show with old age makeup and a wig to make her look the same age as Bea Arthur even though she is actually younger. To continue on the show without the makeup and wig they wrote in a facelift for Vivian. Maude becomes jealous of Vivian's youthful appearance and thinks of getting a facelift of her own. Vivian tells her "You have a husband, it doesn't matter what you look like!" for one of the funniest lines. Walter vehemently denies he thinks Maude needs the operation but the show ends with Maude still considering it.
Bob Hope And Woody Allen Together In One Of The Best Sketches
Edith Prickley plugs the movie "Play It Again Bob", she says she loves "Casablanca" but instead quotes lines from "To Have And Have Not" (the "you know how to whistle" scene}.
We see a promo for "The Trial Of Oscar Wilde" where Wilde (Joe Flaherty) keeps giving childish one liners back to the prosecutor (Dave Thomas), though the audience in the courtroom thinks they are hilarious and witty.
Great White North has Bob putting sleeping Doug's pinkie in a warm beer to make him go.
A funny commercial has Joe and Robin Duke as a couple with a backed up toilet. Roto Rooster arrives with Tony Rosato as the plumber with a rooster who goes down to drain to clog, a lot of feathers are lost.
SCTV News has a Travel Tips with Earl, in which he goes to a Caribbean island with his new girl friend, she mostly ignores Earl and is hit on by the locals. Floyd calls her a floozie.
The final sequence is one of the greatest sketches ever "Play It Again Bob" in which Woody Allen (Moranis) tries to write a movie script for Bob Hope (a spot on impression by Thomas). The ghost of Bing Crosby (Flaherty) appears to give Woody advice on working with Hope. Bob doesn't want Woody's neurosis to run wild just write some jokes and bring in a busty woman. Woody wants Diane Keaton, who Bob calls a "string bean"
Second City TV: Death Motel (1980)
Woody Tobias Jr On Monster Chiller Horror Theater
Some funny sketches and commercials, promos and a long sketch about a 3D classic "Death Motel".
The first sketch is Tony Rosato as Italian host Marcello Sebastiano on Sunrise Semester teaching hand gestures and leering at a woman (Robin Duke).
Count Floyd plugs what he promises (again) what will be a SCARRRY movie, "Death Motel".
A funny commercial has Andrea Martin as a Jewish mother using Bubie's Chicken Medication for every ailment for her son (Rick Moranis).
Great White North has Bob and Doug trying to discuss snow chains but they just argue over smokes and back bacon. A credits crawl show names like Harlan Ellison (written by) and Edith Head (toques).
Ronco Records has a commercial for a dead singer Edna Hymbecker (Duke) brought back to life.
A funny promo for "Danny Eubanks Seminarian/Rookie Cop" has Dave Thomas in the title role as a rookie cop who is also studying for the priesthood. He chases down a robber (Joe Flaherty) who punches him out when Danny admits he has not taken his final vows.
Then we get to Count Floyd introducing "Death Motel" and asking for $15.95 for 3D glasses. He says Woody Tobias Jr. will be in the movie as a scary hunchback and will also be a guest on the set. The movie begins with a unsuspecting couple (Dave and Andrea) stopping at a scary motel for the night. Bruno the hunchback is a bell boy and constantly comes into the room scaring the couple and then asking for tips. We go back to the studio with Count Floyd and his guest Woody Tobias Jr. Woody still has the hump, crossed eyes and warts on his face he had in the movie but smokes a cigarette and wears a leisure suit. He talks about how his father Woody Sr. was Lon Chaney's stand-in in the silent "Hunchback Of Notre Dame. The credits roll as Floyd accidentally hits Woody's hump.
Maude: Walter's Holiday (1973)
Walter Is In A Good Mood
Walter is feeling so good that he declares the day as a holiday called I Love You Day.
A very funny episode with many laughs from the main and supporting cast. Florida answers the door and it's a salesman played by Johnny Brown in a funny scene. At the time he was known mostly as a cast member of "Laugh-In", he would later reunite with Esther Rolle in "Good Times". Walter has funny moments as he gives out gifts to everyone, including a re-gift of a sheer negligee that he gave Maude for Christmas. Vivian arrives crying and depressed over her divorce spoiling the mood for Maude and Walter. Walter gets angry and goes to his club to workout at the gym with Arthur. Vivian comes there and tells Walter Maude is threatening to take an overdose of pills. He rushes home in his gym shorts and sport coat and finds Maude faked the story.
La camarista (2018)
An Excellent Slice Of Life
A maid in a Mexico City hotel hopes to move up the ladder.
This is a well made, engrossing film about what happens behind the scenes and when you are not in your hotel room. The main character named Eve is a 24 year old single mother who wants to get her GED and get a better paying job in the hotel. There are several interesting shots of her looking very small among the mounds of linen as she cleans rooms, there is an astounding shot of her on the roof as well. She has some interesting and bizarre encounters with guests and co workers. This is no Hollywood fairy tale like Jennifer Lopez in "Maid In Manhattan". This is a realistic view into a snapshot of life not many get to see. Although it is a fictional scripted movie it reminded me of the great documentaries by Frederick Wiseman. I always felt that seeing normal everyday people going about their day are fascinating, and it held my interest the whole time. I hope more people will seek this out, especially if you like your films real and quietly effective that avoids all Hollywood cliches.
Maude: Walter's Problem: Part 2 (1973)
Maude Looks For Help With Walter's Drinking
Walter feels terribly guilty about hitting Maude, but still finds it hard to quit drinking.
A good Part 2 episode. It starts with Maude with a black eye and everyone trying to find out what happened. Carole is angry with Walter. Florida has a funny line when she calls Walter "The Great White Hope". When Arthur asks about it, Maude replies she was jumping rope without a bra. Arthur finds out the truth and arranges for a recovered alcoholic to visit the Findlay home. He turns out to be a minister (played by character actor Frank Campanella, he had a few appearances on the show in different roles). Walter shows up totally sloshed when he comes home. Maude has dumped all the liquor in the house and locks Walter in a closet. Although this is a serious subject, there are still many laughs, as when Maude suddenly realizes that there is a bottle of scotch in the closet! Walter is finally convinced to stop drinking from his love for grandson Phillip. His alcoholism is mentioned many times in later episodes, so it just does not end with this episode.
Maude: Walter's Problem: Part 1 (1973)
Walter May Be An Alcoholic
After a wild drunken party at the house, Maude worries Walter may have a drinking problem.
A very good episode, first of a two parter. It begins with a very funny scene as hung over Maude wakes up to find an equally drunk Arthur in bed with her! Walter was so bombed he passed out on the couch. Maude and Arthur vow to give up drinking for a month and Walter also reluctantly agrees. There is a funny Walter/Arthur scene where they drink Shirley Temples at lunch, though Walter spikes his. There is another funny scene when Walter ruins Phillip's birthday cake. Things suddenly turn serious when drunken Walter suddenly turns nasty and slaps Maude, setting up Part 2 in the next episode.
Maude: Maude's Night Out (1973)
Season 1 Finale Is A Two Character Show
Maude and Walter argue while getting ready for a party at their friends house.
An OK episode with a few amusing lines, but no big laughs. Maude and Walter are the only characters in the show, which is the exact premise of an earlier episode "The Convention", though this is not as funny. They talk about the hosts of the party, friends Cliff and Joanna. Walter thinks Cliff is too flirtatious with Maude and Maude thinks Joanna is chinless and a bad cook. The series would start getting better next season.
Maude: The Perfect Marriage (1973)
Maude And Walter's Best Friends Marriage
Vivian and her husband Chuck announce they are getting a divorce, making Maude worry about her own marriage.
An amusing episode, Rue Mclanahan returns as Vivian and William Redfield makes another appearance, the first time as Chuck. The first scene has the foursome returning from a Jamaican vacation singing calypso and seemingly in good spirits. After Vivian tells them about the divorce, Maude and Walter have some funny arguments. Funniest scene is when Maude says she and Walter should write down things they don't like about the other. Maude has a hard time thinking of something while Walter quickly starts jotting things down!
Maude: Maude's Good Deed (1973)
Maude Helps An Old Friend
Maude's old school friend Jane, a widow, is visiting. Maude tries fixing her up with Arthur and also tries to reconcile her with her estranged daughter.
An OK episode with Rosemary Murphy guest starring as Jane. Murphy at that time was appearing in the movie thriller "You'll Like My Mother" opposite Patty Duke. It seems Jane and her daughter are involved in a court case over an inheritance. Arthur is over for dinner with Jane but he meets the daughter and leaves with her. The next day has the funniest scenes when Maude lies to everyone to get them to all come to her house so she can fix everything up, it doesn't work.
Maude: Walter's Secret (1973)
Walter And The Other Woman
Walter is seen having a drink with younger woman.
An OK episode. Carole is the one who sees Walter and she breaks it to Maude who goes through the roof. Walter tries to explain that it was innocent, though he convinces Arthur to lie and say they were bowling that night. Arthur forgets and messes it up. Walter says he is seeing women as just parts these days. Maude and Walter eventually reconcile though they seem to still be keeping secrets.
Archie Goes On TV
Archie sees a local TV station manager give an editorial on gun control and Archie goes on TV to rebut him.
A hilarious classic 3rd season opener. The first scenes are some funny arguments as Archie comes home after driving Munson's cab. Gloria announces that she is looking for a job and Archie calls Mike a "giggle-o". The station manager Mr Bennett then comes on TV saying we need stricter gun laws. He is played by Sorrell Booke, his first appearance on the show. He would later play Archie's boss Mr Sanders on several later episodes. Archie has more funny lines arguing with Mike and Gloria and the right to bear arms. His encounter with Mr Bennett is another highlight. The funniest scene is when we see Archie giving his ideas about guns on TV. He says he can stop all airplane hijackers by arming all the passengers! He says "Ya just pass out the pistols at the beginning of the trip and collect 'em all at the end! Case closed!"
Maude: Florida's Problem (1973)
Florida's Husband Wants Her To Quit
Florida is in a foul mood, and Maude finds out her husband Henry wants her to quit her job.
One of the best Florida episodes. She has many of her funniest lines here. John Amos has his first appearance as Henry (later renamed James on "Good Times"), he is a proud, hardnosed guy who Maude thinks is a male chauvinist. He gets into some funny arguments with Florida and gets along with Walter.
All in the Family: Maude (1972)
Archie And Edith Visit Maude
Edith's cousin Maude's daughter Carol is getting married, Edith brings Archie even though he and Maude can't stand each other.
A funny pilot for the "Maude" series. The first scene has Archie and Edith leaving the house for a bus trip upstate for the wedding. We find out Archie does not like to miss buses, since he also waited for a bus while Edith was in labor with Gloria! We see the loud and liberal Maude for the second time and meet her fourth husband Walter (Bill Macy, he previous played a cop in "Archie Sees A Mugging" and would continue as Walter in the "Maude" series). Carol is played by Marcia Rodd (she was in "Mike's Mysterious Son") she would be replaced in the series by the cuter and less abrasive Adrienne Barbeau. Archie is absent for most of the episode but he and Maude get in a few digs at each other. One of the funniest lines is when Archie leaves and goes to his motel, Maude remarking he will love watching TV that night since Gov. George Wallace will be on the Tonight Show! Bob Dishy plays David, the Jewish bridegroom but he and Carol get into some arguments about anti-Semitic remarks and the wedding gets called off.
A Death In The Family
Archie's deadbeat cousin Oscar is staying with the Bunkers, eating Archie out of house and home.
A funny episode with dark humor about death and funerals. It begins with the family complaining about Oscar. Archie in particular can't stand him since when they were children he would knock Archie down and sit on his face. We never see Oscar, he is only described as an obnoxious freeloader with red hair, big earlobes and warts. There is a funny scene where Mike comes down after checking on him and tells Archie that Oscar is dead. This is followed by a funny sequence when Archie is forced to plan a funeral. A hysterical relative cousin Bertha (Peggy Rea) shows up sobbing but Archie doesn't even recognize her. Whitehead the funeral director pushes some expensive caskets but Archie wants dirt cheap. Mike explains that he can have the cousin put in Potter's field for nothing. Archie likes the idea and thanks Mike, one of the few times we see the two getting along with each other. Watch the episode to see what happens.
Maude: Arthur Moves In (1973)
Arthur The House Guest
After a fire at his house, Arthur is staying with the Findlays until repairs are done.
A funny episode. It starts with Maude being driven crazy by Arthur's demands on taking long showers and having his poached eggs done just right. Walter and Arthur have been going out at night together and Maude becomes jealous. Arthur also bought a toy machine gun for his grandson and Maude hates having war toys in the house. The funniest scene has Walter and Arthur playing war games with apples as grenades, Arthur puts a fruit bowl on his head for a helmet.
A Hippie Couple Want To Stay At The Bunker Home
Mike and Gloria invite Paul and Robin, an unmarried hippie couple to stay the night at the Bunker home.
This is my favorite Season 1 episode. The whole cast has many good moments. It begins with Archie complaining about Mike and Gloria kissing again, "You look like a coupla guppies!". Paul then arrives, Archie remembers him as a clean cut kid who was best man at Mike and Gloria's wedding. Now he is a long haired hippie with a girl friend Robin, who does not talk, she just speaks "with her eyes". Archie refuses to have them stay at his house because they are not married, with many funny exchanges about marriage, religion and sex. Archie also has a toe spasm which further angers him. Another friend shows up, played by Corey Fischer, a tall guy with big hair. He is funny here and also showed up as a Jesus freak on the episode "Archie In The Lock Up". Even Mike and Gloria get fed up with Paul and Robin here, Robin tries to speak with her eyes to Gloria but Gloria tells her to shut up. The final scene has Mike, Gloria and Edith waking up a sleeping Archie with "Down By The Old Mill Stream".
Gloria's First Pregnancy
Gloria announces she is expecting, Archie thinks Mike cannot provide for a wife and child.
Funny and touching episode. It begins with Archie blowing raspberries at the newspaper. When Gloria tells him the news he stares daggers at Mike. Later there is a funny exchange between Archie and Edith over "link" and "patty" sausages. Folksinger Holly Near makes a guest appearance as Gloria's heavily pregnant friend. When Gloria loses the baby, this sets up the most poignant and significant moment in the show, and one of the best in the series history. Gloria and Archie tearfully tell each they love each other, though the inarticulate Archie can only nod his head.
Archie And Mike Write To Nixon
Both Archie and Mike send letters to the White House with their differing views.
A very good early episode. It begins with Archie coming home and tasting a spoonful of something on the stove, he then finds out it was Gloria boiling one of Mike's shirts! Then Archie and Mike get into an argument over what to watch on TV. Archie wants football highlights and Mike wants to watch a PBS documentary on pollution with Jack Lemmon, guess who wins. Then they talk about actors with Archie complaining about liberal ones like Lemmon, Paul Newman and Marlon Brando (he calls him Marlo Brandon). Mike then insults John Wayne which gets Archie furious. Edith says Archie would lay down his life for the Duke but not for her. Edith is less high pitched here than she was later, more world weary and with dry sarcasm. Mike then tells Archie he is sending a letter to President Nixon to criticize who he is handling the country. Archie decides to send a letter praising Nixon. There is an unusual fantasy sequence when the family watches Nixon on TV calling Archie Bunker one great American. The series would get better by the next season, but this is one of the best 1st season episodes.
Maude Gets A Rash
Maude and Walter are planning an Italy vacation when Maude comes down with a rash on the day they are leaving.
A funny episode and a good guest star. It starts off with a funny scene of Maude with a terrible itch. Arthur arranges an appointment with a dermatologist. He is played by Tom Bosley, just before he become Howard Cunningham on "Happy Days". The doctor is extremely busy at the office and gives Maude some pills. He doesn't get a chance to tel her the dosage and Maude pops several of them. This leads to funny scenes of her being dizzy back home. Later she wants to sue the doctor for malpractice but Arthur advises against it.
Maude: Walter's 50th Birthday (1973)
Walter's Pity Party
Walter is depressed at his 50th birthday and Maude tries to cheer him up.
A good Walter episode. The first scene has Florida singing "Old Man River". Maude chastises her saying things have changed. Florida says "We all are still working and you all are still playing". Maude arranges for a reunion with Walter's childhood friend Floyd. He is played by John Heffernan and has a hilarious scene mid way through the show which ends up depressing Walter even more.
