One sometimes useful and fun, sometimes annoying thing about being a fan of both books and movies is that it’s difficult to avoid casting the characters when you’re reading. It’s annoying when reading a book that has been made into a movie only to find oneself unable to imagine anyone else playing the parts other than those cast for it. On the other hand, it can be kinda fun too. Dustin Hoffman and Jimmy Stewart, so far as I know, were never cast in a movie together, but, trust me, they work wonderfully well together. As for the female leads, oddly enough, somehow they always wind up looking and sounding like Ingrid Bergman.
