Dear Dr. M.,
That's really an interesting observation about Victor Mature. My impression always was that he had trouble seeing and talking because all the grease from his hair kept sliding down and encasing him like a layer of hogfat - and now you tell me he was actually a Smithfield product. Tell me - do the Three Piggies consider him a true romantic hero? Could he be the Porcine Hawkeye?
