Doris Schechter came to this country in a transport organized by the legendary Ruth Gruber when FDR, in an effort to court the Jewish vote, allowed 1000 Jewish refugees to come to this country and escape the ravages of WWII in Europe.
Since then, the Holocaust survivor who arrived here as a kid went on to become a successful restaurateur at NYC's My Most Favorite Food.
The nine-year wait is over, and on this week's Cinema Royale we will return to the sleazy streets of Basin City for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For! Was the wait worth it? And how does the sequel to 2005's groundbreaking film fit into the current comic book movie landscape?
Plus, Cinema Royale will be joined by Life of Crime director Dan Schechter to talk about his adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel (and Jackie Brown prequel) starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, Mos Def, Tim Robbins, and Isla Fisher!
Christopher Bumbray of Joblo.com joins me for another great show!
Beekman Place, once one of the most exclusive addresses in Manhattan, had a curious way of making it into the tabloids in the 1930's: “SKYSCRAPER SLAYER,” “BEAUTY SLAIN IN BATHTUB” read the headlines. On Easter Sunday in 1937, the discovery of a grisly triple homicide at Beekman Place would rock the neighborhood yet again—and enthrall the nation. The young man who committed the murders would come to be known in the annals of American crime as the Mad Sculptor.
The charismatic perpetrator, Robert Irwin, was a brilliant young sculptor who had studied with some of the masters of the era. But with his genius also came a deeply disturbed psyche; Irwin was obsessed with sexual self-mutilation and was frequently overcome by outbursts of violent rage.
Irwin’s primary victim, Veronica Gedeon, was a figure from the world of pulp fantasy—a stunning photographer's model whose scandalous seminude pinups would titillate the public for weeks after her death. Irwin’s defense attorney, Samuel Leibowitz, was a courtroom celebrity with an unmatched record of acquittals and clients ranging from Al Capone to the Scottsboro Boys. And Dr. Fredric Wertham, psychiatrist and forensic scientist, befriended Irwin years before the murders and had predicted them in a public lecture months before the crime.
Based on extensive research and archival records, The Mad Sculptor recounts the chilling story of the Easter Sunday murders—a case that sparked a nationwide manhunt and endures as one of the most engrossing American crime dramas of the twentieth century. The book evokes the faded glory of post-depression New York and the singular madness of a brilliant mind turned against itself.
