Fellow Dickns-ellers...

        First of all, thanks to Susanna Betzel and Becky Tracy, who
gently noted and corrected my error in listing the cast of the
1947 David Lean version of _Great Expectations_: Valerie Hobson did indeed
play Estella, and Martita Hunt was an unforgettable Miss Havisham.

        Larry Doyle <[log in to unmask]> has done me at least two
better by providing the following:
