Movie Monologues: A League of Their Own

Happy Monday! In the spirit of summer and the sport that makes it so grand, we've tackled this classic speech from A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN.

Directed by Penny Marshall and starring Geena Davis, Tom Hanks, Madonna and Rosie O'Donnell (among others), the movie tells a fictionalized account of the very real Rockford Peaches and the start of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, a league of baseball that was created to play ball on the home front when so many MLB stars were fighting overseas in World War II.

The film became an immediate hit and "There's no crying in baseball" is now one of the most famous movie quotes of all time. So why not put our own spin on something as stellar and pure as Tom Hanks's own lines?

One more thing: whoever plays the role of Dugan must ultimately bow to the ladies in the story and the actual women who played hard baseball and left an enduring mark in the history of the United States. This is dedicated to them! Now let's play ball!

Movie Monologues: Blade Runner

Movie Monologue Monday!
So this week we are featuring our first REQUESTED monologue! Our super fan and subscriber, Joseph Daniel Williams of Anderson, South Carolina requested the famed "Tears in Rain" speech from 1982's Blade Runner. We were happy to oblige!

The film is a personal fave of Mischief Tales and is a gritty detective film set in the future, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young and Daryl Hannah. The film is landmark classic and really set a tone for "neo-noir" stories, often set in a dystopian future world. Based on the novel Do Android's Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick, the movie also made brought the novelist to the mainstream with Hollywood adapting now popular titles such as Total Recall, Minority Report and The Man in the High Castle.

One more fun fact about Blade Runner, this monologue (delivered in the film by main antagonist, android Roy Batty) was completely rewritten by actor Rutger Hauer after he disliked the original lines in the script! It's now one of the most famous speeches in movie history... so here's our take on it! *gulp*

Please like, follow and subscribe! And let us know what movie YOU'D like us to perform!

Movie Monologues: Chinatown

NEW MOVIE MONOLOGUE!
Last week we started a new series called "Movie Monologues" where actor Vincent Hannam dramatizes a well-known (or not) speech from our favorite movies.

This week we're excited to share a piece from Chinatown, a classic detective thriller directed by Roman Polanski and starring Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway and John Huston. With a movie brimming with talent, the real stand out here has to be the screenplay which weaves a plot so gripping that you don't even realize you've be caught hook, line and sinker. The picture was nominated for all the major Oscars, but the only trophy it snagged? Best Original Screenplay by Robert Towne. So yeah, for a master class in screenwriting go rent this movie immediately.

OTHER NEWS ALERT!
"Movie Monologues" will be moving to MONDAY premieres as of May, 11, so be prepared for more mischief right around the corner!

Episode 1: Making Amends

Happy Valentine's Day! - Love, MT

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand'ring bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me prov'd,
I never writ, nor no man ever lov'd.
