Another problem I'm having with movies these days is the tendency of the actors to mumble their lines. (Scotrace has railed against this too.) I could hardly understand half of what Dillinger and his gang said: they sounded like graduates from the Vito Corleone School of Diction. Fun fact: the real Melvin Purvis looked a cross between actor Crispin Glover and our own Forgotten Man. .
