Not to be disrespectful or sidetrack too much, but:
"Bill held a Juris Doctor degree in Constitutional Law from Stetson University College of Law" sounds so much more impressive than Bill graduated from Stetson University Law School.
(also I doubt that there is such a thing as a J.D. in a particular legal field, as it's a generalist degree -- but there's an always an outside chance that the school named after a hat possibly offers such a thing).

Kidder was in De Palma's Sisters too of course, which is a great pre-Superman role.

Margot Kidder
Mondo Digital just put out this review of The Reincarnation of Peter Proud, which sounds as if it has another interesting Margot Kidder performance in it.

Kidder is definitely the best thing about the movie.

Philip Roth

When I saw Indignation, the trailer for American Pastoral came on beforehand, and the old man sitting behind me said to his wife, "Philip Roth - we gotta see that." At the end of the movie, as soon as it cut to credits and James Schamus' directorial credit, he again said to her, impossibly quickly, "Philip Roth is a genius." Suffice it to say - it was probably Philip Roth.
