    Film about female doctor - 30s or 40s

    It may be The Girl in White, a 1952 movie starring June Allyson.

    Anatomy of a Murder (1959)

    It was called "The Strange One" based on a Calder Willingham novel (End as a Man).

    Archaic Expressions in Films

    Or its variant "criminently". I used to hear my mother cry "damnation!" from time to time. I thought she was cursing the country. In any event, I never hear that any more.

    Not that you need this link, but I found it interesting with respect to the term "Sam Hill": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Hill_(euphemism)

    Where did you find this to watch?

    What's wrong with actors nowadays?

    What I think is wrong with "actors nowadays" is their refusal to properly enunciate their dialogue. Lots of slurring and mumbling requiring me to activate close caption. Maybe that is what is called "method" acting.

    Five most "underrated" Westerns ...

    For what it is worth (nothing) I join those who dislike both regardless of the excellent casts.

    The wife you found so ugly is Liv Ullman.

    What Are You Listening To?

    Listening to audiobook, Unsheltered, by Barbara Kingsolver, read by the author, a wonderful writer blessed with a great speaking voice!

    Hopefully someone who understands the question will respond.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Guess I will continue to not watch that.

    Noir Alley

    Interesting to see who gets cast. If someone is found who actually matches Reacher's description I suspect it will be someone none of us have heard of. It would be sort of like trying to cast Judge Holden in a movie version of Blood Meridian (if anyone ever attempts that).

    Michel Legrand 1932-2019

    I actually liked the movie when it first came out, probably because of the absolute beauty of Catherine Deneuve. But years later I saw it on some late night movie channel in B/W, dubbed in English. That was, indeed, painful. (Guy leaving the garage and singing "Ciao, you guys")

    I know that Cruise does not match the character as described in the book (not even close), but I watched two of the movies and thought they were quite good. With a character like Reacher or Dave Robicheaux from the James Lee Burke novels, or Travis McGee from the McDonald novels, there are probably no current or recent actors that match their physical description. I have read that Lee Child was perfectly fine with Tom Cruise being cast as Reacher.
