#13045A: TEX AND JINX RADIO SHOW, THE
1954-11-16, WRCA, 7 min.
Elizabeth Taylor, Tex McCrary, Michael Wilding

Tex and Jinx broadcast history:

April 22, 1946- February 27, 1959. 

WEAF (WNBC, WRCA), New York weekdays at 8:30 A.M. until 1954; at 1:00pm,1954-1955; then at 6:30 and 10:35pm until July 31, 1958, moving to WOR broadcasting at 2:15pm. 

Broadcast on WRCA FM RADIO in New York City.

   The rare archived radio broadcast begins with Tex McCrary playing back an interview he did in the past with  Elizabeth’s husband, Michael Wilding who describes his wife’s eyes as “violet eyes,” and, possessing a  “double row of eyelashes.” 

Tex asks Elizabeth if Wilding indeed has ever told her that to which she states she feels her eyes are blue. Again, McCrary plays another segment of his interview of Michael Wilding for Elizabeth Taylor to listen. He states that his wife is pretty without make-up, but when she applies her own make up it takes over two and half hours to do so. Taylor responds that it is true and even longer when she does her hair,  fingernails and toe nails.  However, Michael takes only five minutes to shave!
 
Back to the Michael Wilding / Tex McCrary interview. Wilding states that he never saw his wife Elizabeth in a movie before they became engaged. Then, he was taken by Taylor’s parents to Paramount Studios and saw “A Place in the Sun,” which he praises. However, after then seeing “National Velvet” where in real life Taylor was twelve years old, he became ashen as he left the theater and Elizabeth states that if he had seen the film first he may not have ever asked me to marry him (“cradle robbery”).
 
Taylor similarly confirms that she had never seen a Michael Wilding movie prior to their engagement (1951). 
She confirms that Michael watched her two nights ago on television doing a southern accent appearing on What’s My Line? 
She demonstrates the accent for Tex. 
 
Elizabeth Taylor reminisces about attending, for six years, The Little Red School House on the MGM  movie lot where all the contract children actors would attend from 9am to noon on days they were not filming and attending school three hours a day (private tutor) a day,  between scenes  when filming. Others to graduate from The Little Red School House were Mickey Rooney, Margaret O’Brien, Jane Powell, Butch Jenkins and Dean Stockwell.

Rock Hudson, James Dean, George Stevens, Barry Farber, Elizabeth Taylor, Orson Welles, Jinx Falkenburg, Mercedes McCambridge, Tex McCrary, William Boyd, Hopalong Cassidy

Tex and Jinx broadcast history:

April 22, 1946- February 27, 1959. 

WEAF (WNBC, WRCA), New York weekdays at 8:30 A.M. until 1954; at 1:00pm,1954-1955; then at 6:30 and 10:35pm until July 31, 1958, moving to WOR broadcasting at 2:15pm. 

Broadcast on WRCA FM RADIO in New York City.

PREMIER NIGHT ON LOCATION OF THE MOTION PICTURE "GIANT" starring Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, James Dean, and Mercedes McCambridge who talk about working with the late James Dean, their character roles played in the film and their adulation for the  director George Stevens.

Jinx Falkenburg interviews director George Stevens who praises Elizabeth Taylor for her performance in "Giant." He states that after directing her in "A Place in the Sun," he knew that she had great talent and was destined to become a great motion picture actess. 
Jinx Falkenburg and Steven's lament the defeat of the Brooklyn Dodgers to the New York Yankees in the World Series.  

Mike Todd and Elizabeth Taylor arrive at the theater. Taylor praises George Stevens allowing for the actors to interpret their own characters as they thought best. She praises James Dean and states that if he had lived he would have become one of the finest actors of his time. 

Rock Hudson discusses working with James Dean on the movie "Giant" which is premiering tonight in New York City. He states that he only got to know Dean casually and that he was aloof. He and Dean only did two scenes together in the film. Hudson describes his early years in Hollywood and his mentor director Raoul Walsh who gave him his first part in a motion picture as an extra ("Fighting Squadron"). 
 
Mercedes McCambridge who will be nominated for the best-supporting actress in "Giant,"  also discusses working with James Dean, and his kindness to her. She probably knew Dean best of anyone. McCambridge sates that James Dean had a very strained and difficult relationship with director George Stevens. He debated the academy award director of many films on how he should perform, even though "Giant" was his third film. 

Mercedes relates her love of working in radio and her relationship with  Orson Welles who introduced her to her husband to be. 

Also a rare interview with William (Hopalong Cassidy), Boyd, who discusses his career and  memories working with Clark Gable ("Painted Desert" 1931), and his appreciation of the iconic character Hopalong Cassidy he has played on the screen since 1935 to 1948 (a second career). 

NOTE: This may be the only extant broadcast interview of William Boyd discussing his early career and his thoughts on playing the role of Hopalong Cassidy.   

NOTE: This broadcast was audio recorded the night of the New York City premiere of "GIANT" on Wednesday, November 10, 1956, the day the Brooklyn Dodgers played their final world series game as a franchise. Both Jinx Falkenburg and George Stevens comment on the sad loss that day. 

This premiere coverage was broadcast the following evening on "Tex and Jinx," Thursday, November 11th.
