tommy mischke3 The Nite Show with Mischke   8/5/10What if, statistically, you were told that there was no doubt that you were going to die?  That was the case when Toronto native Julia Hidy contracted adenosquamous carcinoma of the uterus.  She talks about battling, and beating, this form of cancer with Mischke.

The Niles Files peers into the career of an American cinematic legend.  Minneapolis’ Trylon Microcinema is showing a 1970s retrospective of Jack Nicholson, and Niles looks into the broad spectrum of the 3-time Oscar-winning actor.

    What kind of question is THAT? Statistically EVERYONE is going to die. You may beat it once or twice or even three times but sooner or later the guy with the scythe is gonna get us all. One of the great examples of the mercy of God. To all pain and suffering there is an appointed end. When you live with pain everyday as I do and thousands of others do there’s nothing frightening about that idea—it’s sort of comforting to know. This doesn’t mean you should be in a hurry to die and kudos to your guest for putting up such a valiant fight (and winning) against cancer.
    But when you’re older, and alone, and in constant pain…you aren’t as against the idea of death as you used to be. (I just hope he really DOES look like Brad Pitt or a young Robert Redford—giggle).
    As for Jack Nicholson—FIVE EASY PIECES was easily his best film—-though his “Corman Years” are fun to recall—LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, THE RAVEN, THE TERROR,
    But, like Brando, his later roles seemed almost to be a caricature of himself.
