Radio review - Lux - "People Will Talk" (1952) **1/2
Perhaps the least well-known film from Joseph Mankiewicz's incredible hot streak at 20th Century Fox. It's smart and entertaining, well played by Cary Grant and even Jeanne Craine, and touches on some interesting themes (babies out of wedlock, medical treatment). But it's kind of a weird story, not that interesting - there's two main plot strands, Grant being attacked for unconventional medicine, and romancing a woman who is unmarried and pregnant.
