Incredibly annoying. Painful to listen to, overly dramatic, cringe-worthy sound effects, dull biography.

Description

From the creators of Inside Psycho and Inside the Exorcist comes a new story about a classic movie and its inspirations. A tale of a modest thriller that became an ordeal and then a disaster and then a phenomenon and then a classic. A story of one man, a fresh-faced, inexperienced director who nearly wrecked his promising career and became the most important filmmaker of our era. This is Inside JAWS.

People Like Us: Inside Philadelphia, Part 2 | 10
00:28:51

“Philadelphia” would attract top Hollywood talent like Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington, Jason Robards -- and an actor named Ron Vawter. Vawter had AIDS, and he would live just long enough to see the film change minds and hearts everywhere. Here, art wasn’t imitating life, art was life. This is the second in a two-part series celebrating the 25th anniversary of the release of “Philadelphia,” and the progress we’ve made in the fight against HIV/AIDS.   


In the 25 years since Philadelphia was released, we've made great progress in the fight against AIDS, but there is still work to do. Join Coca-Cola and (RED) to help end AIDS once and for all. Visit wondery.fm/RED to learn more and donate today.

People Like Us: Inside Philadelphia, Part 1 | 9
00:35:51

In the 1980s HIV/AIDS was a quiet killer and a stigmatized disease. As director Jonathan Demme and screenwriter Ron Nyswaner watched friends succumb to AIDS, they would embark on the first major studio film to tackle the subject head-on. They needed to convince studio heads, movie stars, and a community to come along on their journey. On this 25th anniversary of “Philadelphia,” Mark Ramsey takes you inside this seminal film in a special two-part podcast series on how the film was made, and how it made a difference.

In 1993, Tom Hanks won his first Oscar for his role as Andrew Beckett in the film Philadelphia. This award represented more than just a stellar acting performance. Tom Hanks and the creators, cast, and crew of Philadelphia succeeded in bringing AIDS awareness to the mainstream. They sparked conversation about the disease, and helped to shift the cultural perception of HIV/AIDS from fear to compassion.


In two special episodes of People Like Us: Inside Philadelphia, we’ll get a special look inside the making of this groundbreaking film that starred Denzel Washington and Tom Hanks, and the impact it has had around the world. Stay tuned right here, on Inside Jaws, for the upcoming episodes.


And to celebrate the progress we have made in the fight against AIDS since Philadelphia’s release, and to join us in continuing efforts to deliver an AIDS-free generation, head to wondery.fm/RED

The Shark Isn’t Working | 5
00:29:58

1968: A retired Navy Captain commits suicide. Many years earlier, his vessel suffered the worst naval disaster at sea in U.S. History. It was the U.S.S. Indianapolis, and hundreds of its crew were eaten by sharks. Cut to: 1974. Spielberg enlists writer Carl Gottlieb to “eviscerate” the script for JAWS. Spielberg’s friend George Lucas visits the mechanical shark in a workroom and gets his head stuck in it. Second unit footage is shot using real sharks and real shark cages, but the stuntman barely survives and locks himself in the toilet. Every day, more stress, more delays, more production troubles, more nightmares and – perpetually – the shark is not working. Will this nightmare ever end?

1916: A bounty is offered to whoever can kill the “Man-eater of Matawan.” Cut to: 1973. Peter Benchley sells the rights to JAWS to a pair of legendary Hollywood producers, Richard Zanuck and David Brown. Sensing a winner, Spielberg steals the galleys off Zanuck’s desk before insisting that this be his next project. Meanwhile, Zanuck and Brown toss away a would-be director who can’t distinguish between a whale and a shark, legendary director Henry Hathaway offers Spielberg some advice, and casting begins. Two very important executives want their wives to play the Chief’s wife. In Spielberg’s words, “Oy vey.”

Duel | 3
00:29:58

1916: Matawan Creek, New Jersey. This time, the shark’s victim is a child and the entire town is up in arms. Cut to: 1963: The Kennedy Assassination precipitates a frightening encounter on a dusty California mountain road – an encounter that leads to the thrilling Man vs. Big Rig fable Duel. This is Spielberg’s ticket to fame and fortune. Even if the truck doesn’t explode into a network-satisfying fireball, and even if Universal plucks choice scenes for an episode of The Incredible Hulk. The stage is set for Spielberg’s next project, based on a book by Peter Benchley and called JAWS.

1916: Another vicious shark attack at the Jersey Shore. Cut to: Hollywood, 1965: Steven Spielberg hides out at Universal Studios in a toilet stall. He watches his idol, Alfred Hitchcock, at work. He fast-talks the guard at the studio gate day after day. He has an unpleasant encounter with a naked Marlon Brando – and all this while he’s still in high school. He lays it all on the line and heads west to Cal State Long Beach, where he makes a dirt-cheap, but impressive student film called Amblin that leads to a studio deal and an encounter with Joan Crawford.

Becoming Spielberg | 1
00:26:08

In 1916 a killer shark terrorized the New Jersey shore in one of the inspirations for the movie JAWS. Cut to: Phoenix, AZ in the 1960’s, where a young Steven Spielberg is an outsider struggling to fit in. He’s ashamed of his heritage, bad at school, bad at sports, bad at everything. And then he discovers the magic of moving images on an oversized screen. It turns out he’s good at something after all.
