A lot of action he's with Oscar nominee. Julianne Moore. Oscar nominee himself. Oscar nominee from twelve years a slave. The -- and -- long ago.

And I've seen the trailer on -- and somebody gets killed in that bathroom until it's one down Mina -- lot of Intel. Angela what bathroom and that in any airplane -- -- -- not -- -- right they should put a warning on the door you know you had -- and Michelle Dockery. -- for those who play along now that's lady Mary from down -- who is yeah pretty gorgeous I've been on the show she looks great but then also just regular publicity photos and should residents. As a good looking lady so I'm salt I'll be there and anything else is immaterial to see the movie right though. So -- -- our nonstop great fun there's also moving our son of god which is if you saw the miniseries -- -- with hallmark one of the dubbed later on cable channel T they took. The Bible mini series. They edited down and took just the stories about the -- -- about Jesus and they put into movies they repackaged -- that's coming out for. Dublin season that's also denied her for something a little different also in case you went through that. I haven't seen the the producers and the woman who plays Mary Mary to the producer. Everywhere on television promoting it because there's nothing more religious than re marketing a movie and make -- more money -- -- If but speaking of Mardi Gras. I thought that we just make a little list and the invite our listeners to think of what movies had -- -- and it. What movie. India and come to your final. James Bond film IAE -- Is live and let die yes they have Johnson has had to -- live and let die at a Marty crossing into it. What I like all the jazz funeral seed -- fifth. He's standing spotted standing on the street and the jazz funeral comes by and -- very -- leans over and says the sky. Whose funeral is in the guy stabs and he says it's your funeral and James Bond collapses. In front of this jazz funeral and they scoop him up in the casket. And then they start the second line and everybody's. -- and they can down the street. That's classic Mardi Gras -- right there exactly well you know there with action movie called Big Easy with Dennis Quaid Ellen Barkin. Hot steamy sex in that movie. Neville Brothers music in the background. And so people haven't seen it think it's that but accidents who are -- horrible. Dennis Quaid with him and he said. That your your luck is about to change. -- but to say Shaq but it came out share. It was like you know it is mispronouncing the -- the name. Hi. Local. Language person well this is the eighties so you know. Come -- and the way it happened in the 60s1969. Easy writer a lot of people forget that -- the road -- them motorcycle biker movie. They were coming to wall in the morning girl and so if people walked a little more to grow in their movies at home pick up easy rider. There's one Angela you might remember with Clint Eastwood. Tight rope tight rope. It was about a serial killer he was the detective and ENR. The lady here annually in the movie you isn't it okay I haven't seen Cairo honestly haven't but I got to know and. Hello where you are sometimes you -- news anchors who -- played themselves in the movie -- breed and -- I was playing a reporter. Among a team of reporters running up the steps of the courthouse. Clint Eastwood comes out and I asked are there any clues to the murder. That he answers he kept messing up. Selected and it was so long his Entwistle was too. And so I was sucking air about the fifteenth time running -- years and I'm very politely said -- would you like me to ask another. When and -- to break up the answer he was so polite. I look back on that now. How in the world did you -- half a -- Eastwood can give me some act well -- -- -- I don't know but earned nods yeah outlets were well non breathing down. Yeah. Not your professional and they are the professional help but anyway he was very pleasant but yes that had a great run and well and -- -- -- for people who haven't -- they can stream it for today is eighty the quintessential most recent new -- and love story even though the story itself may not be loading. It really does. Grabbed the spirit of the city. And another all of a little older movie the pelican brief. Home which had nothing to do with Mardi Gras but they threw monogram parade in the middle of the French Quarter that Julia Roberts could escape from the bad guy. So there's a lot of opportunities that you can't come down for morning grow and see yourself here. Or you're not some Morales from. You wrath or church points or rouge or Lafayette. And pick -- the movie and it's Mardi -- in the -- Absolutely and you will see I think that's just such an identifying. Mark for New Orleans that even -- -- October. Put in a for a triple that put in the characters and let the people. The characters run in and now. Absolutely -- we love them both we do love -- and I you know I will say again I love to Bork and you know line. Because this man came in today not only to be with us. On this program and our next hour we're going to have a man who is. A movie Oscar historian and expert. We're gonna spend the whole hour and I said we need -- Bork because he knows as much as dismantled they'll be able to sort of challenge each other. But it'll be fascinating our willingness we're gonna talk about glitz -- we're gonna talk about. History of Oscar and then what's happening who who. Everybody thinks is gonna win this year. So thank you -- coming in and he's going to be here for the whole park thanks Jude. Can act somebody just treated in real quick there's an animated film that we've neglected to mention -- -- Mardi Gras scene in which is all dogs go to heaven. If not no I didn't either I'm gonna have to go back and check that out there must have been ninety whoever it is -- -- thank you thank you very much like bush watched a movie can. Everyone stay with us we'll be right back let's go to the newsroom and Don -- Well we are back and we're talking everything money -- Oscars you've got it. On an end. A bunch of people accidents in which with films Marty crossings and on to impart to a double jeopardy with what's your face the actress. That was a good one. Actually he's confident that's it. Think we're what's her face actress king creole Elvis reprint this sort of -- PetSmart somebody says there's three stooges from the -- about Dracula 2000. Candy man. And this is really making me curious -- -- to Texas prison back concede there's a movie about being used and the superdome here it's a lot and that's like a horror flick yes it is horrific it was -- in the superdome is that. It's a please hippies in the suit that sounds great the library and -- -- -- of -- child's point of no return now you've seen me along came a spider. And and -- anymore. Let me tell you though that says. Mr. money Graf who makes the float is probably been in more movies -- how I'm sure then yeah I'm sure that -- right but good for these people to say this is part of our culture and. We should be identified and probably brought a lot of people into real quick savage beast as the TV movie from 1970s. On believable. Is there used to be this big fear about communities and so somebody of course with -- -- -- just. On tonight. You know what again in our our theme of there's beyond things going on beyond just the terrain differently but clearly. Not part of Mardi Gras is a great. Event called the baucus bash. And it is 28 annual and stand for is the organizer of Anthony's with this -- thank you very much for joining -- stand.

And three years ago we moved it over correction -- It -- -- and you know we're just excited to be part of it and just happy that you know we're. Continuing the -- -- Don't you love when I hear things like that you know it started -- cafe which I remember. And evolved and now you're -- generations colony. Next it'll be the down. The their. I hope so but I -- -- it -- a couple of them. But it's again it's free to the public and I mean you pay for during some things like that but it is an open party. It is an open book or anybody can contract and we can calm. We have stayed. Corrected in the middle of the street we have three and -- cat category six and we'll try. People hang out of the downed tree. General election poll taken over as well so people are in the court dark area and by all we have to grant him in the street we also have. On the balcony area there are people that can assert that the yeah yeah area -- People wanna get out of the ground they have credit restrooms prayer they have a private or. It's open bar and food if you could be out or if he gets what shall I am wondering can listen to walk -- somewhere else to stop and say hello I mean it's it. -- -- There -- thousands of people are.

Our started speaking about the move and 23 actually. For years ago at this point. We decided to make that move book and we needed more space. The overwhelming. Support from the New Orleans -- just immense. And we needed more space for more people so that's what -- You know with the excesses as we know how to do it right and we like to -- what else we are. Aware that. He's. And and it's also a lot of work I'm sure you've been working a lot hopefully you'll be able to enjoy the art. It is a lot of work out the right thing to worry.

Archer themselves to Iraq in May first slammed down outside New Orleans and -- -- recorded their senior major step in costume and that tanker and another planet and ads and realize. So grandly say about them really realize afterwards -- they were in Orleans and it was Margaret torn right now. On this they figured out in the end. I -- somebody else alert you to act after they get. -- by the way it's that one of the best movies ever made senator making fifty. I'll candidates into one and yet you are wonderful to call with it and we appreciate you listening in this is how we learn. So much David ideals. Bernie Cyrus to one of the nicest people I think I've ever known great music. I can't believe that Colin burning. No why should arguably I think there's gonna congratulate you on -- -- -- goings are happening with you how are you. I don't want. The denigrate yeah immigrant -- -- the step in and it's it's an aggregate I want to outlook that it would change beta at a very very well -- -- And it goes Politico and Margaret -- up -- and Oprah but I'm not really sure that -- what you know about my own police. But the late girls are it's what colonel Don Johnson Sunday to try -- -- -- at the little -- so. All a little bit upstairs door or downstairs or. I don't know to they have music programming youngsters. Yeah they say out -- -- that will be on the main stage at the -- and a permit. Oh. And I look forward to do you know how it's too moderate pro what Santa is the Christmas. You bet your life a home that's poetic I haven't thought about it like that they can Bernie. No Bernie that. Well I just believe Lebanon on every year I get a chance but it would -- done a wonderful time monies. He's really announcements always think they -- -- one around is such a -- And a book that is from the wallets. A couple of bit Louise jukebox calls but are we do all the wallets music that we don't grow and -- ordinary Kato. Out prefer -- which are real -- yeah we do to show well. A global effort and -- it and can't -- it. So you can deal so what are. I wanna see you at the -- -- -- because they're desperate to put it in the edit that it can't wait for sure if. You gonna call me in a semi copping an immigrant talk. I'll Bernie this is great and again mrs. bucket Sunday and it's going to be at Littlejohn saloon. -- 7 o'clock the the partial birth -- -- -- -- timeouts that show looked like a lot down the parade. That's correct. Thank -- awesome thank you thank you for calling. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Canterbury and congratulations on being a grandfather again so you know many many people know what wonderful -- sellers it is so good for him and good for. Now carnival time yeah. This gets around me and he goes all kind of events and stuff like that some on television and trying to -- and content in the last couple of days. Which it was terrific he now I think people really very much and spared. You out rates less that was just packed it was really -- you know we were reminiscing about it if I feel like -- was and always has packed. As it is now I think. I don't really know exactly what the rules are what what parameter what threshold you have to cross signal from being crude to a super crew. It's -- technical element that is the size of the floats the number of writers I think that maybe it ally. Mentally to add music -- of -- it feels like a super group ever existed people are. I don't know what it is -- there I mean there's all kind of cool new stuff this you know they had to claim bald female labels that -- went well that we -- it was in the kind of day they had a little bit of a blow up some people were upset on the Internet about. These issues of cultural appropriation things that they handled it with poll plume and the they had the original men planned vote troop -- first in line as a way of kind of showing. It's deference to their that are you know century long tradition of doing that so. Unclaimed ball real well rolling L -- looked great all the floats were incredible everybody do shoes everywhere. And it was a great time -- huge parade and it feels like a super -- enemy and it just feels like the crowds have grown and grown and grown over the years you know what's the weather was really good last night it was pretty economies -- rough. Yes -- hold this thing we're gonna double up here I yeah I think that may have been -- that -- contributing factor last lot of people didn't go out the rates on Wednesday night so they knew they really wanted to get in there NC Thursday. I don't know if you saw the piece that channel forges on. On the women who were gonna do this plan does plan to this game -- they actually were practicing for months. And and they would Wear backpacks. And have to carry they were carrying brooms equally weighted down and it's because they knew that this is going to be happy yeah heavy stuff. The long route to be doing well I saw them at about Jackson which I guess it's just a maybe a little bit short halfway down and they still. They were rock and pumped they did not look tired or fatigued or closed fazed in the least -- -- having great time we chief tradition but we move forward as well I think that's the thing you have to do with tradition if it stays exactly the same forever never then I'd you know -- treat me run the risk of becoming -- latest -- for all traditions. Acting Mardi Gras allows that allows us to kind of mix and match in and in proven polishing change in the -- and do we need to do beautifully says we're gonna take another break but stay with this for talking about what's happening. Well we're talking about all the fun things happening this weekend and as we know eight million parades in the baucus and bash which counts -- on on on.
