David Morse — A Podcast Tribute

Posted on February 27, 2021 at 4:09 pm

Copyright Jen Johans 2021

I love a chance to pay tribute to under-sung Hollywood figures, especially utility infielders who show up in movie after movie, genre after genre, handling every role with precision and commitment. David Morse fits that description perfectly, and it was a pleasure to join my friend and fellow critic Jen Johans and novelist William Boyle on Jen’s Watch With Jen podcast to talk about some of our favorite Morse performances, including “Inside Moves,” “The Slaughter Rule,” “Diary of a City Priest,” “The Indian Runner,” and more.

Jen’s articles about Morse are here and here.

Movie Mom on All the President’s Men: Podcast with Blake Howard

Posted on October 19, 2020 at 4:11 pm

Many thanks again to the wonderful Blake Howard for inviting me back to his All the President’s Minutes podcast to talk about one of my favorite movies, “All the President’s Men.” Blake is going through the film with episodes about each minute of the film. He’s up to minute 107-108, Bob Woodward (Robert Redford) leaving the parking garage after a disturbing encounter with Deep Throat (Hal Holbrook), so disturbing that he suddenly feels afraid of every sound.

I have a special interest in “All the President’s Men” and the Watergate scandal because I was a Senate intern on Capitol Hill the summer of the Watergate hearings and got to sit in on them twice. I live near many of the landmark locations, as you will hear in the podcast.

Blake says:

ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MINUTES IS A PODCAST WHERE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT MOVIES, JOURNALISM, POLITICS AND HISTORY MEET. EACH SHOW WE USE THE SEMINAL AND INCREASINGLY PRESCIENT 1976 FILM ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN AS A PORTAL, TO ENGAGE WITH THE THEMES AND THE WARNINGS OF THE FILM RESONATING SINCE ITS RELEASE. FOR MINUTE 108, I WELCOME BACK FRIEND OF THE SHOW – A MOVIE AND CORPORATE CRITIC AND EDITOR AT EBERT VOICES, NELL MINOW. NELL AND I TALK ABOUT THE MARK TWAIN-ISM THAT “HISTORY DOESN’T REPEAT ITSELF, BUT IT RHYMES, TALKING TO AARON SORKIN ABOUT BEING ON A “COLLISION COURSE WITH HISTORY” AND THE DEFINITIONAL CORRUPTION OF THE NIXON ADMINISTRATION.

It was such an honor to speak with the kind, wise, quick witted, and talented Nell Minow and we clicked so quickly that this half hour flew right by. I agreed with her taste so often that I’m sure I said the phrase “I love that” or “love it” at least thirty times. From Turner Classic Movies and outstanding film recommendations for families to a thoughtful discussion about writing reviews online and her adventures seeing movies reel-to-reel at the Library of Congress, this episode is sure to delight film lovers.

All the President’s Minutes: Nell Minow Talks About All the President’s Men with Blake Howard

Posted on March 25, 2020 at 7:57 pm

All the President’s Men is one of my favorite movies of all time, so it was truly an honor and a thrill to be invited to talk about it with Blake Howard on his “All the President’s Minutes” podcast, which devotes an entire episode to each minute of the film. I got a great minute, the first meeting of Woodward (Robert Redford) and Bernstein (Dustin Hoffman) and Bernstein interviewing a source on top of what was then the Hotel Washington. I was a summer intern on Capitol Hill the summer of the Watergate hearings and got to attend twice, and have been fascinated by Watergate ever since.

Be sure to tune in to hear our conversation and then watch the film again!
