5:02 am
we want to get to the top story this morning first. the violent storm system that wreaked havoc overnight from the midwest to the east coast. at least two people are dead in virginia. downed power lines combined with yesterday's record setting heat left more than 2 million homes without power. the nation's capital was also hard hit. let's get the latest from cbs washington affiliate wusa in bethesda, maryland with us this morning. good morning to you, topper. >> good morning, rebecca. yeah, we're in bethesda at congressional country club. i took a walk up there a few minutes ago. we have crumpled tents, tree down, tent fairway on the 18th fairway. we have three strewn around me. it's like a war zone. hate to use that term. but i tell you what, travel around the metro area is nearly impossible. we have mature trees down and live wires. you know what, it was a scary night last night. a line of thunderstorms 100 miles from tip to toe rolled through the metro d.c. area friday night from 9:30 to 11:30 p.m. packing straight-line winds
5:03 am
of 50 to 0 miles per hour. the same clump much thunderstorms hit southeastern ohio and west virginia with hurricane-force winds earlier friday evening. the tech mi cal term for this is mesoscale convective system. usually seen in the midwest and not the mid-atlantic. this system of thunderstorms held its shape and intensity from the ohio river to the potomac river into the ocean resorts in coastal delaware and maryland. the intense heat ahead of the storm complex fueled the storms as they raced eastward friday night. over 2 million customers lost power in the d.c. metro area. highs will top out around 100 degrees saturday and in the upper 90s sunday. putting the elder at risk with no power for fans or air conditioning. power company officials won't estimate how long it will take to restore power, but if history it an indication, it may be a matter of weeks and not days. you know what, now, because there's so much debris on all the tracks between here and philadelphia, amtrak has canceled service for the time being. so a real mess here in the metro
5:04 am
area. perhaps another record high today. terrell? >> topper thank you so much. to the deadly wildfires now in colorado. the worst of them in and around colorado springs. firefighters are searching through what's left of hundreds of homes. two bodies have been found. there are reports of looters breaking into the cars of evacuees. president obama got a firsthand look at the devastation and called the firefighters genuine heroes. anna werner is in colorado springs with more. anna, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. the good news yesterday, the encouraging news is that firefighters now say that the fire is 25% contained. that's the highest number we've heard so far. they've managed to hold it to the same area for the past two days. but as you mentioned, there is now another death, a second report of a death due to this fire. president obama toured scorched neighborhoods friday and offered support. >> one of the things that i've tried to emphasize is that, whether it's fires in colorado or flooding in the northern
5:05 am
parts of florida, when natural disasters like this hit, america comes together. >> nearly 350 homes have burned in the fire. but the president told firefighters their efforts saved many more. >> i tell you what, those families, you've made a big difference in their lives. >> firefighters have also managed to successfully limit the fire to the same size it's been for the past two days. 17,000 acres. when do you know that you're beginning to get a fire like this under control so to speak? >> i'm halfway home to nevada. actually the sense starts to come when the black line starts to move around the map. 25%, 35%. we start chipping away at that. >> on sunday, evacuees will begin to get a look at what firefighters have been seeing. they'll start touring their burned-out neighborhoods by bus to see what's left. but some residents of the cedar heights neighborhood who were
5:06 am
evacuated but whose homes did not burn got a chance to reclaim a few possessions friday. tony flores and his two daughters waited hours for ten minutes inside their home to grab a handful of precious items, like 4-year-old olivia's teddy bear. >> happy birthday to you ♪ >> thousands of people have been evacuated here and for them, the nightmares are sort of just beginning as we mentioned. many of them will get bus tours tomorrow. they may not be able to get off the busesment they're going to be toured through the area to see in some cases whether they have a home left. for other people returning, there are issues of how do you get your mail and gas service, all kinds of complications. there's a lot going on here for this community for some time to come. terrell, back to you. >> anna werner in colorado springs this morning. thank you. jorngs remains in jail in florida watding for a judge to decide whether he should be let out for a second time.
5:07 am
during a bail hearing yesterday, the attorneys for the man accused of killing trayvon martin said zimmerman lied to the court about his finances because he was afraid. bigad shaban is in florida. >> zimmerman's attorneys were hoping their client would be able to take the stand and apologize to the judge directly. when the judge explained that would leave him vulnerable to cross-examination by the prosecution, zimmerman's attorneys backed down and decided to make the case on their own. >> he's no different than anybody else. >> judge lester clearly believes george zimmerman and his wife shellie lied to him at the murder defendant's first bond hearing back in april. shellie zimmerman testified by phone under oath they were broke. hoping for a reduced bond. her husband knew better. but said nothing. >> he should have jumped up and said she's lying. didn't tell you about -- >> i expect a tug on the sleeve. >> even a tug on the sleeve. agree. he should have done something. absolutely. and he didn't. >> the zimmermans actually had more than $130,000 in the bank.
5:08 am
raised through an online defense fund. in recorded jailhouse phone calls, they even talked in coded language about transferring thousands of dollars. the prosecutor argued zimmerman deserves to stay in jail without bond. >> they implied to the court, they said they were indigent. this defendant just sat there and allowed that to happen. because he quite frankly was manipulating the whole thing. he was using his wife as a conduit to do this. >> zimmerman's attorney argued his client deserved another shot at bond and freedom. marco -- he says he poses no flight risk ordaininger to the community and added his client was confused or afraid rather than intentionally deceptive. >> he didn't tell you the ruth about the money. i am asking not to require that he now spend the next year in jail for a crime that now that you have a better flavor for the
5:09 am
evidence he may well have an affirmative defense of self-defense for and that he may well never get convicted by a jury of his peers that the state has proven this crime or any crime beyond a reasonable doubt. >> now, o'mara worriries zimmern may have to spend a year in jail because the trial may not be until next spring. the judge is expected to bring down his ruling earth next week. >> we'll bring that to you when we have the information. to the political uproar raging over the supreme court's affirmation of president obama's health care law. republicans say they will win this fight with the ultimate jury, the voters in november. whit johnson has more. >> terrell, good morning to you. on july 11th, house republicans are expected to once again vote to repeal the affordable care act. it's a largely symbolic vote. has no chance of passing the
5:10 am
senate. it sets the stage for renewed battle over one of the country's most divisive issues. >> no. this has to be ripped out by its roots. >> fired up in an interview for cbs's face the nation, republican house speaker john boehner refused to give the u.s. supreme court the final word on health care. >> we can replace -- when we replace this, we can have a common sense debate about which of the provisions ought to stay and which ought to go. >> boehner's first order of business is to hold another vote to repeal president obama's signature piece of legislation. it's a flashback to early 2011. >> the bill is passed. >> when house republicans attempted the same thing only to be shot down by senate democrats. >> too many americans are still struggling and congress can't afford to waste time refighting old battles. >> with little time to celebrate the court's decision, democrats are already on the defensive. >> politics be dammed. this is what we came here to do. this is the great achievement. this is not only making history with this, it's making progress
5:11 am
to the american people. >> that argument will have a true test on election day in november. conservative activists like adam brandon, say while the ruling on health care was a setback, they haven't been this energized since the bank bailouts. >> this health care issue is definitely going to be firing up the grassroots base. and probably in a way that's going to be very beneficial to republicans. however, republicans still need to remember, it's not just so much to oppose something. they need to advocate something. >> of course, many kongs conservatives are furious are chief justice john roberts who was the deciding vote. yesterday at a judge's conference he said that he would be traveling in malta for a couple of weeks joking that it's a "i am preg nabl island fortress and may not be a bad place to take a break for a while." terrell. >> whit johnson, thank you so much. as whit reported, the health care law now certain to be a central issue in campaign 2012. cbs news political director john
5:12 am
dickerson is here with us. >> good morning, terrell. >> governor rah romney's campaign raised 5 -- is this issue going to be a factor heading into the election? >> it is. as you say, it's gotten him all that money. to the extent that conservatives were slow, conservatives were already lining up behind governor romney. but now they're really rushing because they know that only by electing him president that's the only way the affordable care act is going to go away. he solidified his base, he's raising money. so it's good news for him on that front. the question is how much beyond his base he can use this issue. >> does it push independence, john, in his direction? >> that's the really big question. we know from polling that independents were unhappy with and aren't happy with the affordable care act. but does unhappiness with that legislation translate into immediate support for mitt romney or is that the single issue those independents or
5:13 am
those swing voters really is the most important group to look at, are they going to swing away from the president? that's less clear. we'll see how that plays out and whether mitt romney really prosecutes the case here on health care or kind of mentions it every once in a while. >> let's talk about the penalty for not having health insurance. the president says it should not be considered a tax. conservatives say it's very much a tax. what is it? what's true? >> john roberts declared it to be a tax in order to allow the affordable care act to be uph d upheld. calling it a tax is what allowed it to live. now that it's alive, the house doesn't want to call it a tax at all. president obama was adamant that this is not a tax. but the fact is that republicans are going to say that this is a tax and the complexity here is that the republicans, we heard speaker john boehner, talk about this tax and how he doesn't like it. now, mitt romney could do the same thing except that in
5:14 am
massachusetts, mitt romney's health care plan had a tax at its center in order to get people to buy insurance. and so it's a mechanism very similar to what's in the affordable care act, which makes it a little trickier for him to criticize the president. >> given that the language now, john, is tax ds and associated with this law, do you expect that democrats in congressional highly contentious congressional districts are going to distance themselves from the law itself? >> that's the key point. so if there's a split on the republican side, there's also a split on the democratic side. there are a lot who were not crowing about the fact that the affordable care act was upheld. they know it's quite unpopular. they're trying to keep their distance. getting stuck with a tax, nobody wants to be called a tax raiser in either party. so there will be a split here among conservative democrats or democrats running in states with a conservative leaning voters. they're going to try to get away from this as fast as possible and the white house is trying to get away from it insisting it's
5:15 am
a penalty and not a tax. >> john dickerson joining us from washington. john, thank you so much. >> thanks, terrell. the supreme court ruling and the partisan anger could fuel how congress deals with the deadline. it's a double whammy of tax increases on everyone and spending cuts that are massive and some are calling it a fiscal cliff for the government and the economy. so we turn to senator chris coops, he's a democrat from delaware part of a -- >> good morning rebecca. >> how much more difficult does this health care ruling make it to find compromise given how contentious it is and the fallout we're already seeing? >> i'm disappointed that the republican response to the affordable care act being upheld by the supreme court has been to amp up the volume to repeal it. i think instead we should embrace the fact that there are significant improvements to public health, broadened coverage. there are 17 million children who are benefiting from the affordable care act. it doesn't allow insurance companies to deny them coverage.
5:16 am
one of the biggest drivers of the ongoing financial challenges as a country is the steady, o annual double digit increase in health care costs and the affordable care act could be a part of dealing with our long-term financial costs. it is going to be make it harder, the atmosphere in washington is more partisan than it's ever been. there's a group of us, nearly 30 members of the snat who see the on coming fiscal cliff as a challenge and an opportunity. something we have to work seriously to deal with. >> how close are you to dealing with it? >> we've got a ways to go. we've building off the bowls simpson commission. there was a group of six bipartisan senators who put in place a framework for how we would make a broad bipartisan deal that would cut spending, reform entitlements to say them for the next generation and engage in tax reform that would lower rates, broaden the base by closing loopholes and raise revenue. it's going to be a tough act to get pulled together in time. but after the election when most folks expect us to turn to this problem, we're only going to have a few dozen work days to
5:17 am
get it done. >> right. >> we need to spend the summer putting in place the pieces of the solution. >> are you prepared to let the tax cuts expire? >> that would be a tough step to take. we may have to do that to get republicans on board. because so many republicans have signed this pledge that they won't ever vote for a tax increase. so if the bush tax cuts expire, the only way perhaps to save the middle class tax cut would be to let them expire and reenact them as a middle class tax cut. >> on the flip side of that, yesterday former fed chair alan greenspan said there is no way to get a deal done on this without some pain. >> that's right. >> that pain is entitlement reform. are you prepared to let certain entitlements as a concession for potentially higher taxes on some, are you prepared to let those expire? >> well, i wouldn't allow medicare and medicaid and social security, which are the broadest most expensive and most popular entitlements expire, but we can engage in measured responsible reform that says them for my
5:18 am
children for the next generation. >> you wobbling to make cuts in entitlements -- >> we have to be willing to make broad balanced changes to spending, to entitlements and to revenue in order to get a package that can pass and can save the country from an otherwise dramatic fiscal cliff. >> senator, thanks for being with us this morning. a look at some of the other news. eight federal air marshals have been fired for allegedly drinking on a training day. six others were suspended for not reporting the incident. none of the marshals was scheduled for flight duty the day they were caught but employees are not permitted to drink while on the job. all but one. air marshals can appeal the ruling. cycling champion lance armstrong has been formally charged with doping. the u.s. anti-doping agency has accused him of using performance enhancing drugs since 1998. armstrong has often denied doping accusations and his attorney called the charges baseless. but if an ash frags panel decides he is guilty, armstrong
5:19 am
could be stripped of his titles. fls good financial news on this last day of june. wall street closed out the rocky first half of 2012 in the black. the dow industrials are up nearly 5.5% for the year so far following the jump yesterday. investors were cheered by news that european leaders have a plan to rescue their struggling banks. >> oh, they have a plan? >> and we do too. >> we're all working on that plan day by day terrell. >> 19 past the hour. lonnie quinn with a first check of the weather. >> guys, we have so many weather stories taking place. what i want to do, walk over to the big screen. explain some of them for you as best i can. a low pressure system around the dakotas. this low pressure system has a spider web of fronts spreading out from it. one of the fronts from, say, the ohio valley through the mid-atlantic. it's a stationary front. it's not going anywhere. when you heat that up today with a lot of sunshine, you're going to trigger some showers and storms, some of which could be
5:20 am
on the severe side. for places like d.c., the strongest storms take place during the heating of the day in the afternoon, not like last night. south of this area, fthere's a high pressure system. it's sucking up air over the blue ridge mountains, over the smoky mountains and on the backside, it sinks down. that's why you get the really high temperatures. memphis, atlanta, 95 to 100. some of you will feel like 110. yesterday nashville hit 109. wouldn't be surprised to hit that again. head to miami where it's 89 to escape that. here's a closer look at the weather for your weekend. and happy saturday to you.
5:21 am
rebecca, over to you. >> happy saturday, lonnie. thanks so much. the global impact of the internet is hard to exaggerate. what happened to karen cline is really astonishing. thanks to a viral video, cline went from being a bullied school bus monitor to a celebrity with a well-filled bank account. >> we know she's been making the rounds on national tv including this broadcast last saturday. the kids who bullied her are paying a high price as we report. >> this scene on a school bus in greece, new york, has gone from a you-tube sensation to a worldwide phenomenon. >> now the children who cruelly teased 68-year-old bus monitor karen cline have learned that being a bully has a very steep price. the four students have been suspended from their middle school for a year. plus, they have to do some 50 hours of community service with senior citizens. >> there's nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all. >> in addition, each student
5:22 am
will be required to complete a program in bullying prevention, respect and responsibility. because the school district is required to provide an education for aulg children between the anls of five and 15, the four will be sent to a special facility called the district reengagement center. while the students who taunted her are being taught a lesson, so is karen cline. that the kind people in the world outnumber the cruel. >> they might want -- >> when the suspension is over, karen cline is more likely to be in a bmw nan a bus. a fund set up with the modest goal of sending her on a vacation reached a tote afl $676,000. no word on whether she's going back to work as a bus monitor this fall. but karen says she never wanted her tormentors to be prosecuted. for "cbs this morning saturday," i'm david broud i in new york. she deserves it. i get mad every time i see that video. >> it's easy to get angry when you see children behaving that way.

5:31 am
we like this segment. also first, our hollywood super couple tom cruise and katie holmes calling it quits. holmes filed the divorce papers while her husband was in iceland filming a movie. this is tom cruise's third marriage and an odd coincidence. all three marriages ended when each of his wives turned 33 years old. here's the report. >> in a world of larger than life celebrity marriages, none were subject to more tabloid fascination than that of tom cruise and katie holmes, married in 2006, the couple raised one child, a 6-year-old now. holmes is reportedly asking for sole custody. the romance began as cruise's career was hitting a rocky patch with his couch jumping episode. while holmes was mostly known as the teen starve the tv drama dawson's creek. now gossip websites are reporting holmes is asking for the divorce to get out of her famous husband's shadow and further her acting career. cruise has been down this road
5:32 am
twice before. he was divorced from oscar winner nicole kid man after ten years of marriage and three-year union with mimi rogers ended. it was only a time before this too came to an end. entertainment tonight disagrees. she spent time with cruise on the set of his latest film two weeks ago and they talked about his marriage. >> there was nothing but love that i felt from his end. so it is a little concerning and it is shocking. because there's an argument there that he was blind sided by this divorce. ♪ >> some saw signs of trouble when holmes was absent during the publicity tour during cruise's recent movie rock of ages. but the actor turns 50 on tuesday gave nothing away. >> when i asked him at the age of 50, what's your greatest achievement, he said my marriage and my family. >> for "cbs this morning saturday," los angeles. and joining us now is julie dancing. assistant editor of people. people was the first to break the tom and kate divorce story
5:33 am
and also with us is divorce attorney raulfelder. whose clients included rudy giuliani and mike tyson. great to have you with us. what happened here, julie? >> i mean, this is a bombshell. it's one of the biggest marriages in hollywood breaking up in the middle of summer when just a couple weeks ago, tom cruise was talking about how wonderful his marriage was and his life was. >> it seems like tom cruise had no idea that this was coming. it was katie who made the move, right? >> katie filed for divorce in new york and from how it went down, it certainly seems that tom was blind sided. >> raul, from a legal standpoint, what's the significance of five years? >> no significance. they have a pre-nup tal agreement. probably the money increased as the years go by. it was a dead marriage at some point. he wanted to cut his losses. that's what happened. >> it's being reported that katie maybe wanted to step out of tom's shadow or vice versa. do you see that happening in these situations? >> sure. everybody is watching the thing has to believe that this has
5:34 am
been dead for quite some time. this is an interment. not a death. this marriage has died some time back. >> i want to ask you about the $3 million figure. because there have been reports that maybe katie could walk away with $3 million for every year she was in the marriage. >> possible. not unusual in prenuptial agreements that for every year you stick it out, you get so much more. the real question arises, why does she pick new york to sue for divorce. the only sensible reason i can think is we have a strong privacy law. files are sealed by law. you go to california, anybody has nothing do in the afternoon can go look at the court file. >> does katie holmes have a big acting c'eira head? is she going to be okay as independent katie? >> i think she whants to find out. she has been going back into acting recently. that's part of the reason they've been apart more recently. tom talked about always wanting to be together. he's been on his film sets and she's been working on films as well. >> how hard is it going to be for katie to get sole custody of
5:35 am
s uri. >> i would imagine -- test all over america is the same. best interest of the child. he would have a tough job if he had custody. a lot of people think scientology is a cult, not a religion. jumping on oprah's couch doesn't indicate a stable personality. i think she'll do okay. >> a seesaw time in tom cruise's career, could this have come at a worse time for him? >> he's turning 50 as you know and his wife files for divorce. rock of ages didn't do quite as well as people expected. he's still one of the biggest movie stars in the world. tom, i think, will be okay. >> all right, julie and raul, thanks so much guys. now we turn to lonnie quinn with another check of the weather. >> good morning to you and good morning everybody. let's look at something called a surface analysis map. all this is, is it's showing you where the elements in our atmosphere are right now for your day today. out around colorado, there's nothing on the map.

there's a big old high pressure system there giving you nothing. there will be no clouds. there will be no rain to help out with the wildfires. the rain is going to be stretching from the ohio valley into the mid-atlantic states. take a look at this. last night west virginia to washington, d.c. just rocked by strong thunderstorms. well, today's storms will take place primarily in the afternoon. all because of the heating of the day. chicago, charleston, washington, d.c., again, the possibility for some severe storms during your afternoon. that situation out west, around colorado where i said there's not a cloud overhead, it's because high pressure is in control and it's giving colorado, utah, wyoming, i'm talking a huge block of area there. nothing but sunshine soaring temperatures. the only good thing i will say about the situation with the wildfires, the pressure gradient, the winds not as strong today. about 20 miles per hour versus 40, 50 miles per hour winds that they've had out there. that's a quick look at one portion of the country. here's a closer look at the weather for your weekend.

6:03 am
could convince assad to step down and hand over to a government of reconciliation. but that is only if russia wanted to. something that has so far looked like a long shot. now, we're hoping in the next few minutes that there will be some sort of a statement out of geneva that could indicate that russia is willing to change its position and that would result, everybody hopes, in a united plan on where we go from here. rebecca in. >> elizabeth palmer in london. thank you. in other headlines this morning. severe weather stretching from indiana to the mid-atlantic states left two people dead overnight. more than 2 million without electricity. the storms partly generated by yestrday's record heat brought hurricane-force wind gusts of up to 70 miles per hour toppling trees and knocking down power lines, amtrak service between philadelphia and washington was knocked out. president obama is using his weekly radio address to praise the coordinated government response to the deadly wildfires in colorado. mr. obama visited colorado

6:08 am
allyson generals jeneba to skroin her team. what is this like for them? >> you know, it's really -- it's tough. i know it's not only touf for them, but it's tough for bobby who coaches both of them. the most important thing is making sure that these athletes are considered first and considered their health because running at top speed, running the 200 meters today's final and then trying to come back the following day to try to do a runoff or -- it's extremely tough on the athlete. with both of them being friends, being coached by bob kersee. i know boibby and the girls, they're going to do what's in the best interests of both athletes. >> what do you think would be in the best interests of both athletes here? >> what i think would be in the best interests of both athletes is one, is for them to get
6:09 am
through the 200 meter finals and that's today. and then to allow their body to rest and then for the two athletes to come together and for them to decide if it's going to be a runoff, let it be a runoff off their terms. because the one thing about our olympic trials, they're extremely difficult. these athletes are in the best shape of their life and they're peaking at the right time. after they run this 200-meter race, their body needs to rest and then if it's going to be a runoff, then do a runoff. >> everyone is asking, jackie, what if this thing actually comes down to the flip of a coin. how fair is that? do you think it will happen? >> well, i'm hoping it doesn't come down to a flip of a coin because you only get one shot at this. the olympics only come around every four years. it's unfortunate to be in this situation, but this is reality tv at best. and this is what we have to deal with and -- i think the most important thing is for these two ung ladies to get through
6:10 am
today. they have the 200 meter final. let them get through that race and then let's decide what we're going to do next. >> you're on the board of usa track and field. how do you think they're handling this? >> you know what, usa track and field has always put the athletes first. that's the most important thing. going to both allyson and jeneba and also including bob kersee their coach and trying to figure out what's best. bobby knows how he trains them, he knows that he trained them to run fast, fast, fast. but we also know they have a final and it's not advantageous for them to run at top speed the following day because you only have a short window before the olympic games and i think usa track and field has done a great pwe protect the athletes.e that what is in the best interests of the athlete. >> jackie, going to put you on the spot with the last 15 seconds that we have. what do you think will happen? how is this going to end? >> what i think is going to
6:11 am
happen, once they get through the finals, allow their bodies to recover, looking like a 48-hour window and then maybe there's going to be a runoff. but you know what, let's wait and see. >> all right. >> we'll be waiting on pins and needles. >> jackie joyner-kersee joining us this morning. thank you so much. coming up next on a saturday morning from roswell to mysterious lights in the sky. >> doesn't it look like there's a light on the horizon right there? >> it's blinking. look, look, look. it's going in and out, in and out. >> what is that? we'll talk to a team of ufo chasers looking to see if aliens have already landed. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday."

that's when we know her, she was a pretty fascinating old woman too. i really like to see the growth of her character and i hope i matched with the growth of my invented protagonist cora. >> you did a tremendous job. i hear it might be making its way to the big screen. >> yes. >> what can you tell us? >> i was so excited to hear this. elizabeth mcgovern who is one of my favorite actors. she read the audio and she does a wonderful job reading the book and decided to option the film rights. >> when might we see it on the big screen? >> i don't know yet. it will be a while. it will be a few years. i think she'd do a wonderful job. >> laura moriarty. thanks for being with us. we appreciate it. >> thanks. >> have a great weekend. still ahead, the highway to good eats. peter greenberg has five of the best food stops just off america's interstate. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday".

>> we're back with some johnny cash. i think terrell is going to come out and join us as well possibly. but you know what, he's new here. he might have just escaped. he thinks he can take a break while i'm interviewing you, laura. you know the drill. i know the drill. >> we were talking about the things that surprised you the most in your research for this book. i'm wondering what stood out the most about new york in the 1920s. >> well, one thing is i was interested in the contrast between new york and kansas. because louise brooks grew up in wichita. her chaperone was from wichita. kansas had been enjoying prohibition of alcohol. that's where carrie nation was from. my protagonist probably would have been hoping that prohibition passed and celebrating it and seeing it as a victory for women.
6:28 am
whereas, new york was not at all pleased about prohibition as a whole. >> right. >> they had a different understanding. >> i've also heard she had a lot of famous boyfriend. >> louise brooks? >> yes. >> when she was 18 she was dating a married chaplain who was 36. >> he could have used that $550 ring that leaves an imprint on his finger. >> exactly. >> he was one of the famous guys. any other notable names in her history? >> he's the biggest. he's the biggest. you know, she didn't have a lot of romantic luck. she kind of chased after the wrong men. i think had a hard time really truly relating and loving people and letting herself be loved. >> by the way, i'm terrell by the way. the guy that doesn't know where to be at the right time. that kind of thing. >> you're going to love the book. the chaperone, laura moriarty. thank you so much. take care. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,

♪ ♪ this morning we begin a new segment from the vault and it will feature of groundbreaking cbs news series "person to person." the show was hosted by legendary newsman edward r. murrow from 1953 to 1959. we begin with a classic. an interview from september 1954 with screen icons, humphrey bogart and lauren bacall. >> bogey met bacall in 1944 on the set of to have and have not. he was 144 years old, she was only 19. their love survived. here's their rare interview. >> the bogarts occupied this home for two years. they're in no great hurry to complete it. this week they finished the outdoor swimming pool.
6:40 am
let's see what's going on at the bogart home across the country. good evening ms. bacall. >> hello eddie. that looks like an interesting bracelet. is it special for television visitors or a little thing you picked up. >> i picked it up somewhere very special. a fellow by the name of mr. bogart gave this to me in honor of to have and have not. the first picture we appeared in together. it was prompted by a line that i said in the picture. i don't know whether you remember it or not. but the line goes something like this. if you want anything, all you have to do is whistle. you know how to whistle, don't you? you just put your lips together and blow. that's it. >> where is the gift giver, bogey? >> the gift giver is inside. you want to see him? >> yes. i remember both of you are natives of new york. do you miss this big town very much? >> yes. no.
6:41 am
>> wait a minute. that's a nice normal family disagreement. tell me, don't either of you get a yen to do a broadway play? >> yes. i do. >> no. >> i think i'll tell you what i think that you're going to run into kind of a traffic jam if you ask two actors one question. i think you better focus one by one. >> i'll break it up. put the first one to you. have you sort of lost your appetite for playing before live audiences, bogey? >> well, i have ed because i did an awful lot as a kid. i started at 21 and was in seven smash hits in a row. oyster and i came to hollywood and was a terrible flop here and went back to new york and was in four big flops there. i swore if i ever got to hollywood again, i'd stay here. i like it here. so i think i have lost my appetite for the broadway theater. i think possibly maybe a little ambition because i believe that ambition belongs to youth. >> betty, did you ever see bogey
6:42 am
on the broadway stage? >> i can't say that i did, ed. if you'll pardon me, before my time or at least i was in -- at the time. i did see him in many motion pictures. i may say, and this is strictly between us of course. he was not a favorite of mine. i figured that he was one of those, you know -- i believed everything that i saw in pictures. when i first came out here and director howard hawks, howard told me he would like me to appear in my first picture opposite either cary grant or humphrey bogart. cary grant was heaven to me and bogart was horror because i was convinced that bogart was strictly a dees, dem and dose. >> bogey -- >> dat ain't true, ed. >> ain't true no how, huh? >> ain't true. >> betty, after all these years, what do you think of your husband now as app actor? >> as an actor in motion p
6:43 am
pictures, again strictly between us, i wouldn't have him here except for the fact he's here and i can't help it. i believe that he and spence tracy are the best actors in pictures today. as he waves this under my nose, if you glance on the mantelpiece, you'll see a small gold statuette which reminds me about how wonderful he is. >> that's the oscar for the african queen, isn't it? >> it sure is. >> betty, i see a reference to you as the look. how did you earn that perceptive title? >> well, the look, ed, came along at the same time as the legs and the leer and the whatever -- what have you. the look from down under look as mr. bogart named it, came in a very odd fashion. it came because i was so nervous when i started to work in pictures that i thought that the only way of steady myself was to give the look, which is this. >> bogey, would you mind a
6:44 am
personal question or two? >> not a bit. not a bit. >> i don't think i've ever seen you in a picture. but you were playing the part of a tough guy. what do you think about that sort of type casting? >> well, i think type casting, ed, is -- it sounds bad. actors don't like it. but i think it kind of helps you. i think gary cooper in a big hat and tight pants and guns around his waist is done very well. and gabe will, i think it makes stars out of people. i think that i gained the attention of people because i was supposed to be a tough guy, because i shot people and killed people. >> what matters to you most in this business of moviemaking? >> principally, making good pictures and i'm not angered to say make money. i don't hold with everybody that a thing isn't good if it makes money. i believe that it can be good and also make money. i think good pictures matter to me a lot.
