  1. Doc, many thanks for doing this; it’s incredibly informative.

    I have a special thing for John Sturges and his films but (other than BDaBR) I think I like the ones you did not mention. We could probably have a great time talking about his films together.

    I’ve listened to this 3 times (editing etc) and I enjoyed it each time I heard it.
