On a special episode of I Was There Too, Matt shares a compilation of some of the best stories from the last year’s guests. From the ups and downs of improvised lines with Paul F. Tompkins in There Will Be Blood, to whether Jenette Goldstein from Aliens thought her role was an immigrant alien or an extra-terrestrial alien, to tales of the infamous Schwab’s Pharmacy with Matt’s grandmother Eleanor. It’s worth revisiting if you’re a regular listener and a perfect starting place for all the newbies. Plus, movie buffs Jeremy Smith, Devin Faraci, and Amy Nicholson put their film knowledge to the test in a game that incorporates the curious endings to the show’s theme song, in the debut of I Quiz There Too.

Actress Melody Rae joins Matt via phone from Yelm, Washington this week to discuss her role as the woman with the baby carriage in the Union Station staircase shoot out in The Untouchables. Melody tells us about completely improvising her memorable scene, how she handled the explosions, baby, & squibs, and working with Kevin Costner. Plus, Matt introduces a new segment called I Was There Tune, where he is joined by his good friend/music editor/composer James “Jimmy Blades” Bladon to talk about composing music, working with director Tony Scott, sound effects, and life behind the mixer. Finally, Matt closes out the show by talking about how Mickey Rourke was originally going to play Eliot Ness in another installment of I Wasn’t There Too.
