Commentary on an extended piece by an outsider.

People Will Talk (1951)

Cary Grant and Jeanne Crain star in a Hollywood classic, "People Will Talk." Grant plays a wise and witty middle aged surgeon and general practitioner who is just as adept at dispensing wisdom as he is at dispensing medicine.

(How like a woman.)
