Book Vs. Movie Podcast

"How the Grinch Stole Christmas" by Dr. Seuss

The 1957 Children's Classic Vs.

The 1966 TV special & the 2000 Ron Howard-directed Film

 

The Margos get into the holiday spirit talking about the all-time holiday favorite "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" by Dr. Seuss. In this episode, we explore the differences between 1957 children's classic book and the two filmed properties of it (the 1966 TV classic and the 2000 rowdy Jim Carey version.

Topics we cover here:

  • The backstory of Theodore Seuss Geisel and his less than cheery view of children
  • Figuring out between John Ford, Tom Ford, and Glenn Ford
  • His San Diego roots
  • Dr. Seuss's left-leaning politics
  • The thinking behind the story of the Grinch
  • The voice actors in the TV special
  • How Jim Carey won the part
  • The 8-hour grueling makeup sessions
  • The insane art direction in the movie (The Margos are NOT fans)
  • Taylor Momson's wonderful performance

Clips used:
